Modern Family
I can use a good laugh right now. 

I woke up late this morning and realized that the same old routine I do every day is slowly cutting my life short by the second. If I don't go out and hunt for some fun and good times then I am going to have to say hello to insanity.

However, I stopped that train of thought and I reminded myself of the movie I just watched last night.

Pursuit of Happyness.

Then after looking back at Chris Gardner and the life he had to live with, I realized I should stop complaining and be contented with what I have and where I am. I am blessed enough to have a house, two not-so-fun but loving parents and a sister who buys the food I love (I like all sorts of food so she doesn't really have any problem with choosing at all).

Anyway, I said that I can use  a good laugh because I think that is one of the best ideas to enjoy my summer. Since I don't have any plans or even if I do but I just can't then I might as well take advantage of the things that I can use to kill the summer time.

A good laugh is easy to find, really. It doesn't really matter whether you get it from a friend's joke, a text message or from an episode of your favorite comedy show for as long as it tickles you until you drop on the floor.  

Laughing is an energy booster, it may not be a problem-solver but it is surely a stress-reliever. I better start laughing more often now if I still want to look my age but then a problem came in. 

How in the world can I do this? 

I can't just grab the funniest guy in school and force him to make me laugh and besides, it's a stupid idea. It's summer vacation! The funniest guy in school may be enjoying his time on the beach right now and he doesn't want to be disturbed for sure.

And then there's the idea of watching funny shows on television. I could just turn on the TV and look for a comedy show. 

Sounds easy? Yes it does but it's impossible. Not everything on TV makes me laugh.  Some of you may find the "big bang theory" funny but not so much for me. The only person I think is funny in the show is Sheldon and that's it.

For me, a comedy show should have great actors that could make people laugh in their own and unique way. Imagine a pool of talented actors put together in a show with their distinct take on comedy. 

It's a comedy explosion, people!

Well, some of you may have probably guessed what show I am talking about. It's none other than, "Modern Family".

The funniest show on the planet, for me of course. Modern Family has the variety I was looking for in a comedy series. Every character on the show has incomparable characteristics that somehow turn into magic. The magic that makes me and a lot of people laugh.
Well, to give a little info about my favorite show, Modern Family was created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan and started it's very first episode on September 23, 2009. The show received tons of positive feedback both from the viewers and the critics which I believe helped them garnered various awards such an Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a  Comedy Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series - Musical or Comedy.

I am so proud I feel like I am part of the show.

Anyway, I have written down a few of my favorite quotes from Modern Family.

For those who have seen or is a big fan of Modern Family, as you go through the quotes below, you will not just be inspired by what they said, you'll also be laughing your heart out as you try to look back at those episodes where they said it.


My Favorite Modern Family Quotes so far

"Family is Family, whether its the one you start out with, the one you end up with or the family you gain along the way which makes every day December 16."  -Gloria

"There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists but more often than not, the opposite is true. You see, the dreamers need the realists to keep them from soaring too close to the sun and the realists, well, without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground." -Cameron

"So I guess I was wrong when I said, once we get older, it's hard to make new friends."                                                                                                                                             - Phil

"We all struggle with limitations, some are willing to accept and some are not. It's never too late to grow in life." (Actually, this isn't jay's quote, he was just reading an instruction's manual from a contraption Manny bought  that's supposed to increase one's height.)                                                                                                                                          -Jay

"All week long I've been telling my girls how to act instead of showing them, but not Phil. Phil could have said, Alex, relax, don't take everything so seriously or Haley, challenge yourself, don't give up so easily but instead of talking the talk, Phil walked the walk. And isn't that what we're supposed to do for the people we love. It's definitely a challenge but Phil made it look easy, seven feet off the ground." -Claire

"I was almost depressed to come today, I realized I let my childhood slip away, I really thought it was too late for me, but watching all of you act like children, it hit me. I've got a plenty of time left to be a kid."  -Manny

"People can surprise you, you used to thinking of them one way, stuck in their roles, they are what they are and then they do something that shows all this depth and dimension that you never knew existed."  -Mitchell

"Everybody's got their stuff, whether your popular or a drama geek or a cheerleader or even a nerd like me. We all have our insecurities, we are just trying to figure out who we are. "  -Alex

"If another woman is messing with your man, you have to get pro-active. I don't care how pretty she is or how many stupid reptiles she has, she tries to take what's mine, girl friends's gonna get stung." -Haley


  1. Contentment they say is the key to happiness :)

  2. I've never watched Modern Family--those are some interesting quotes, though. :)

    Thanks for coming by my blog!

  3. I have to agree Modern Family is one of those hilarious shows we watch from time to time. It comes on at the same time as another favorite show but watch it when it is it reruns.

    Great post!
