‘Baby on Board’

Season 3, Episode 24 - Aired May 23, 2012

Mitchell and Cameron ask Gloria to help translate when they travel to Calexico in the hopes of finally adopting a baby. Jay and Manny are left to look after Lily, who is taking part in a big dance recital. Meanwhile, Claire and Phil are proud parents when they send Alex to prom and Haley seems to be taking charge of her life.

Quote from Alex

Michael: You look flawless.
Alex: Thanks.
Michael: Did I not say coral was the color for you? Look what it does for your skin. Hi!
Phil: Hi, buddy.
Claire: Hi.
[aside to camera:]
Alex: Yes, my bad boy prom date is gay. He just doesn't know it yet, so I'm basically his beard. Pre-beard. His stubble.


Quote from Manny

Gloria: Jay! Manny! Good news! Mitch and Cam are getting a new baby today.
Jay: Really? That's fantastic.
Gloria: And it's Latino!
Manny: How's that giant fence working out for ya?

Quote from Haley

Claire: Um, we need to talk, honey. We're worried about you. You haven't heard back from the college that wait-listed you, and all the rest of your friends have. And now you're just wasting time at the mall.
Haley: For your information, I've already filled out and dropped off my community college application. And plus also I'm going to the mall because I have a job interview.
Claire: What?
Phil: Really?
Haley: My guidance counselor suggested I take a gap year. You know, a year between high school and college were you take some courses, have some life experiences, and get inspired. And obviously, work at the GAP.

Quote from Cameron

Gloria: Ay, please stop driving the car like a snake. It's making me nauseating.
Mitchell: Well, uh, if you want to switch places, there's plenty of room to stretch out back here.
Cameron: Yeah, that's why we traded our old prius in for the new one. You know, bigger family, bigger backseat. You can fit two car seats and a prize-winning pig back there.
Mitchell: Please don't put a pig in the backseat with our children.
Cameron: I'm not being literal. It's a unit of measurement we used on the farm. You know, like, "That bed's a double-pigger."

Quote from Dylan

Dylan: Mr. D., do you have a tuxedo I could borrow?
Phil: Yeah, sure. I mean, it's the tux I got married in, so it's double-breasted.
Dylan: Perfect. So am I.

Quote from Jay

Jay: The first step in plane building, organize the parts. You got your power plant. You got your fuselage. You got your control surfaces. What's that?
Manny: A charcuterie. You got your prosciutto, your pancetta, your salami.
Jay: That's charcuterie? I've been avoiding that on menus for years. [chuckles] They're killing themselves with that name.

Quote from Phil

Phil: Always keep the rhythm in your feet. Then we're gonna add just a little party in the shoulders. All right? Now let's get those arms going. No, no, no. Arms down here says, "I'm white and I'm sorry," but arms up here says, "You don't know what I am."
Alex: I-I don't.

Quote from Dylan

Haley: [aside to camera] Tonight at dinner, I'm telling my parents the biggest news of all. After graduation, I'm moving in with someone.
Dylan: And his name is me.

Quote from Dylan

Dylan: Listen, I know that you're concerned, but I'm designing t-shirts now, and they're gonna be huge. Also medium and small.
Claire: Dylan, would you excuse us for a moment so we can talk to Haley?
Dylan: Sure, but you stay. I'll go.

Quote from Phil

Phil: Well, Alex should be hitting the dance floor right about now. Must be fun.
Haley: Really, dad, let it go.
Phil: I'm sorry, sweetie. I'm just sad you're missing it. I can still totally picture my prom night. My date was Angela Wilkins. My dad dressed as a limo driver and spoke with a British accent. He even announced our arrival. [British accent] "Sir Philliam Dunphy and the Lady Wilkins!" All the cool kids were totally laughing with us.
