“Modern Family” Season 5: Episode 21 “Sleeper” Recap:

Previously on the “Modern Family” (“Sleeper” Season 5 Episode 21), Gloria (Sofia Vergara) organised the family portrait photo shoot. She had them wear a black shirt and jeans. Nothing special. Cam (Eric Stonestreet), on the other hand, thought that it was a great idea to have Lily (Aubrey Anderson-Emmons) wear Alex’s (Ariel Winter) pajamas in the photo shoot. Then again, everything boiled down to one thing that everyone had a different idea for the family portrait. Come on, people. You can compromise!

As for Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), he had a little meltdown in this episode because he felt that he was being ignored. Mitch felt invisible, even to Jay (Ed O’Neill) who was busy too because he had Stella join a dog show. He exploded during the photo shoot.

Phil (Ty Burrell) was looking for the single “Nobody Does It Better” by Carly Simon. He lost his virginity to this song in 1988. When the record store called him about its availability, he immediately went there. He felt guilty while listening to it, and so he destroyed it and threw it out. This event has caused him to miss that machine repair guy. He did not know how to break it to Claire (Julie Bowen), so he lied. This stressed him out and caused him to have a sleeping disorder. Fortunately for him, Alex was  writing a paper about sleeping disorders. Don’t you think Phil makes it a good subject?
