Modern Family Blu-ray giveaway – Pick your favorite moment from season three
CliqueClack is giving away two Blu-ray sets for Season 3 of ‘Modern Family’ to two lucky recipients, and all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post recalling your favorite moment from last season. If you’re like me, you’re probably having trouble picking just one!
Season three was a season of revelations. Maybe they weren’t earth-shattering, but they were memorable to the show’s many loyal viewers. Who could forget Claire hitting the dusty campaign trail in her quest for a stop sign? As a woman who’s used to winning and stopping at nothing to over-achieve, Claire learned that sometimes you just have to accept defeat graciously. Maybe your favorite moment was the “Vote for Claire Mobile” driven around town by Cam and Mitchell, or Claire’s interview with reporters while she was missing a tooth? Or perhaps you found it hilarious when Lily dropped the “f-bomb” during the hideous Lite-Brite wedding?
Who could forget the first appearance of Betty Luke? Besides seeing what his sisters do to him to pass the time, we learned more about what makes the youngest member of the family tick with more insight into Luke’s world this season. He accepted the loss of his elderly neighbor/friend Walt in an unconventional way, he lied to his entire school to make everyone think he was a hero, and we found out he’s a prime candidate for that series about hoarding. Who knew so much was going on behind those mischievous eyes?
Not only did Cam turn the big 4-0 (or 1-0 in Leap Years), but we also glimpsed a colorful part of his past, as we learned about his days in the prominent clown duo known as Fizbo & Lewis. It takes a big man with an even bigger heart to hang up his oversized clown pants, rubber shoes and his moment in the seltzer light to begin a family with the man they love. Maybe your favorite moment was the clown funeral.
Season three also made me ponder just who is the better father figure in this extended family: Phil or Jay? I will always adore Phil Dunphy more than I can say, especially since the episode in which he wrote his daughter’s initials on the diner’s moon, but he really had a tough time being a father this season. It just about broke my heart to watch him realize his eldest daughter is no longer a virgin and will soon be leaving for college.
While I’ve always known how wonderful Phil is, the Disneyland episode taught me that Jay may have a gruff exterior, but he’s really a big teddy bear on the inside, and a wonderful father to boot. Not only was he a self-sacrificing father for Mitchell and Claire all these years, but he’s also shaping up to be a pretty terrific father for Manny. Maybe the family’s memorable trip to Disneyland was your favorite.
But without a doubt, the biggest revelation of all this season was Gloria’s, that she was pregnant in the season finale. I can’t wait to relive all the tender moments and hilarious antics from season three that have helped define the Dunphy-Pritchett clan and have made them a family I’ve quickly developed a soft spot in my heart for over the past three years.
So, if you’re eagerly awaiting the Season Four premiere on September 26 and are looking to relive the best Season Three had to offer, leave a comment and enter our DVD giveaway.
