Modern Family might not be quite at the top of its game this season, but it will always be worth watching for the Cam & Mitchell scenes, if nothing else. Here are our favorite Cameron Tucker and Mitchell Pritchett quotes from Seasons 1-4.
10. Drinking Game
Cam: I’m playing a drinking game. It’s called everytime I feel depressed about something, I take a drink.
Mitchell: That’s already a game. It’s called alcoholism.
Mitchell: When I was 12-years-old my father walked into my bedroom and caught me doing the most embarrassing thing that a boy can do: dancing to Madonna’s ‘Lucky Star.’
8. A Normal Childhood
Mitchell: [talking about Lilly being in a commercial] Let’s just let Lily have a normal childhood.
Cameron: I think that gay cruise has sailed.
7. A Little Too Far
Mitchell: You always take this a little too far. Your nephew’s first birthday.
Cameron: That’s not fair.
Mitchell: You brought a wind machine.
Cameron: Who puts wheels on cribs?
Mitchell: Aren’t you going to change into a working man’s outfit?
Cameron: I don’t think workmen really call them outfits.
Cameron: I’m sort of like Costco. I’m big, I’m not fancy and I dare you to not like me.
Mitchell: I had to actually come out to my dad three times before he acknowledged it. I’m not sure if maybe he was hoping he heard it wrong, like I said ‘Dad, I’m grey.’
3. Handy Dad
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.
2. Remembering ‘Nam
Cam: She’s already prone to flashbacks, if you know what I mean.
Mitchell: You know she didn’t fight in Vietnam, right?
1. Mommy Dearest
Cam: There’s a fish in nature that swims around with its babies in its mouth. That fish would look at Mitchell’s relationship with his mother and say, “That’s messed up.”
