Jay Utters Three Little Words to Phil, Immediately Regrets It on 'Modern Family' (VIDEO)

'Modern Family' - 'After the Fire'The relationship between Phil and Jay has always been one of the best on 'Modern Family' (Wed., 9PM ET on ABC). Phil is so eager to please Jay that he actually winds up pushing his father-in-law away. Which is why it was absolutely horrifying when in a moment of relief and bliss, Jay uttered the three words he never wanted to say in front of Phil.

"I love you." It's important to note that Jay only said he didn't want to say these words in front of Phil. There was no indication that he doesn't love his son-in-law, he just finds him incredibly difficult to have a normal relationship with -- which is very understandable under the circumstances.

Lukily for Jay, Phil's shocked and euphoric response wasn't because of Jay's momentary lapse of self-control. He had a tremendous business opportunity, and he came to Jay to talk about it. Without saying a word, this scene showed how much Phil respects Jay, and how much Jay respects Phil. He still finds him annoying, but at least he respects him ... and apparently loves him, too.

The best line of the episode in my opinion was between Haley and Alex. When the geek boys were taunting her brother with the helicopter Alex walked up to them and charmed them to get it back. Alex comes back to Haley, who's mouth is hanging wide open and says "You have your fans and I have my fans. The difference is that your fans will be working for MY fans."

Loved, loved this episode. Funny Phil, funny Manny, loved seeing new side of Cam. And after terrible episode with Treehouse with everyone bitching at everyone and nothing making sense, what a great surprise. This show is up and down every week, but nice to see it back in first year form. More Phil!
