Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) plays the perfect straight man, er, serious man to Cam's (Eric Stonestreet) comedic genius. Here are his best quotes from Season 2 of Modern Family.

10. Cam to the rescue! (Episode 1, "The Old Wagon")
Mitchell (to Cam): Don't carry me out this time. I think it sends the wrong message to Lily.

9. Oh, macho Mitchell... (Episode 1, "The Old Wagon")
Mitchell: Aren't you going to change into a working man's outfit?
Cameron: I don't think workmen really call them outfits.

8. In the words of Phil (Ty Burrell): "Good times, she wrote" (Episode 3, "Earthquake")
Mitchell (to Cam): Where was all this conscience when I got us into the first-class lounge in the airport and you chewed Angela Lansbury's ear off?

7. He has a dream (Episode 1, "The Old Wagon")
Mitchell: I know I'm not the handiest guy, but I'm still a man and I want to be able to look out into my yard and say, "There's a little bit of me in that princess castle."

6. Camela Soprano (Episode 3, "Earthquake")
Mitchell (to Cam): You're like a mob wife. You complain about what I do, but have no problem wearing the fur that fell off the back of the truck.

5. Pepper's themed brunch couldn't have come at a worse time (Episode 3, "Earthquake")
Mitchell (to Cam, during the earthquake): If we're found dressed like this, it won't look good for the gays.

4. Now that's talent (Episode 3, "Earthquake")
Mitchell (to Cam): [Pepper]'s managed to make a gay couple hate brunch.

3. Mitchell and Cam miss the preschool boat (Episode 5, "Unplugged")
Mitchell (to Cam): Leave it to the gays to raise the only underachieving Asian in America.

2. Flash mob fail (Episode 8, "Manny Get Your Gun")
Mitchell (to the camera): This dance is my love letter to Cam.

1. Mitch's spider-sense steers him wrong (Episode 6, "Halloween")
Mitchell: There are exactly three people in costumes. A tool, a douche, and me.
