Modern Family - Mitchell Quote #326

Quote from Phil
Claire: [aside to camera] Yes, I am sad Haley is leaving, but I'm gonna be okay knowing I've done everything I can to get her set up and prepared and off on the right foot.
Phil: Not me. When we're standing in her dorm room saying good-bye, it's gonna be one of the most emotional moments of my life. I'm gonna cry harder than the first time I saw "Air Bud", Especially when I give her this. "Phil's-osophy." A hardbound collection of all the life lessons I've learned, such as "Always look people in the eye, even if they're blind." Just say, 'I'm looking you in the eye.'" or "If you get pulled over for speeding, tell the policeman your spouse has diarrhea." Phil's-osophy.

Quote from Lake Life
Mitchell: [aside to camera] It was Scotty, this local lake kid I met on vacation when I was thirteen. I had a huge crush on him, so on the last day, I decided to take a chance and I kissed him. It was my first time ever kissing a boy, so when he pulled away and said that he wasn't "into this," I was humiliated. I mean, I'd obviously misread signals. He was straight. It was five years before I ever made a move on a guy again. And even then, I wouldn't dare unless he was basically floating across the room. Which is why I ended up with... Well, you know.
Quote from Little Bo Bleep
Cameron: What about the wedding? What if she says it there? She's like a ticking time bomb!
Mitchell: Well, what are we gonna do, cancel?
Cameron: Yes. Maybe we just call and say, "We're not going to any more weddings until the gays can get married."
Mitchell: Oh, so now we're political? We leave town on gay pride weekend because we don't like the traffic.
Quote from Unplugged
Mitchell: We have got to get her into school, or else she's gonna fall behind.
