Modern Family Recap: The Cold

Modern Family” Season 6 Episode 3 “The Cold” aired on Wednesday, Oct. 8, 2014, at 9:00 p.m. on ABC. Phil had to do some editing before the family watches Mitch and Cam’s wedding. Read on to learn more about this episode.

Previously on “Modern Family” (Episode 3 “The Cold”), Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) was babysitting Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Simmons) and her friend. He noticed that Lily’s friend is better than her when it comes to playing an instrument, painting/drawing and other stuff. The girl cried when Mitch pointed out that she knows a lot of things. When she cried, he tried to console her. Unfortunately, his watch got stuck on her hair. The girl’s mother arrived to fetch her and was shocked to learn that Mitch called her six-year-old daughter a know it all.


Cam (Eric Stonestreet) was trying to prepare Manny (Rico Rodriguez) for the game. Unfortunately, Manny was not doing well and was pressured with his parents’ watching it.

Meanwhile, Claire (Julie Bowen) was so sick but refused to miss work and her meeting. She denied the fact that she was trying so hard to impress Jay (Ed O’Neill).

Phil (Ty Burrell) watched the video, and he was sneezing everywhere. While Jay was making his speech, he sneezed on the cake and even on Mitch’s champagne. Phil cannot let the family see this. So he tried to edit it with Luke’s (Nolan Gould) help. However, the edited part did not go well.

The game has started, but Gloria (Sofia Vergara) and Jay were disappointed that Manny was benched. During the dinner, Gloria welcomed Cam and had him sat on a different table. Then Claired showed up looking really sick. Gloria blamed Jay for pressuring his kids. Manny cut his mom and said that she was the one who pressured him, by calling him her “perfect little angel.”

Altogether, they watched the film. Phil was spared with his “sneezing part” in the video when each member of the family kept on having the video on fast forward. Moreover, Hayley (Sarah Hyland) kissed Andy.
