I feel like Alex is more of an outsider than Luke, she's hardly even in it
+ Anonymous

Saying this about Alex makes more sense because she does feel like an outsider in her family often, she’s said it herself. But I think you meant in the show? I think Alex got a significant amount of development this season, no? In my opinion, it’s just Alex’s…it’s just how things are for her, to be a bit of an outcast, she is smarter than her relatives, she sees things differently and it’s hard to be that way sometimes.

Sorry if you've gotten this message before, but I just noticed that, apart from Lily, the Dunphy kids don't have any cousins. It has never been mentioned in the show that Phil Dunphy had any siblings (as shown in the Season 4 finale, during his mother's funeral. If he had any siblings they would've shown it, right?) so the Dunphy kids don't have any cousins on their dad's side. Therefore, if Mitch & Cam didn't adopt Lily, they wouldn't have any cousins at all! Except for second cousins, that is.

Ha! I had never thought about that. Well, if/when Manny has kids, they’ll be their cousins!

What episode is the gif set from that has cam at the baby class I think wearing a green top and saying something about meryl Streep?

The tags usually tell you everything, it’s season 1 episode 2, “The Bicycle Thief”.

I feel like the show doesnt focus enough on Luke, he seems like a outcast on the family, Alex picks on him and Haley isnt really there, idk it seems a bit sad, he does have Manny and His dad but thats about it.

I agree that season 5 didn’t show much of him, but I’m not sure you’re right about him being an outcast. He has a relationship with his sisters (well shown in “New Year’s Eve”) and now he’s good friends with Manny too. He’s been shown in many scenes with Mitch and Cam, also with his grandpa and Gloria, and he has a great bond with his dad.

Its a perfect relationship between Cam and Mitch! I don't know why everyone is upset about it, not all people kiss every twenty seconds. Also, to the "Cam balls deep in Mitch" comment... Cam is a bottom. Sorry to break your fantasy.

I thought it was weird at first, but thinking about it, Jay and Gloria don't show much physical affection too imo. The only couple that do it is Claire and Phil really. I think they want to keep it down because they want to express the characters' affections in other ways if you know what i mean

Ah, good point. Although I feel like for Jay and Gloria it’s…I was going to say that it’s different, but I honestly don’t know how it is different. One anon pointed out that the explanation was given in “The Kiss” and from then on they’re just keeping it real, it’s normal that some couples won’t be all that affectionate with each other all the time - besides, Cam and Mitch have been together for so long, I guess the physical parts of their relationship might not be that important to them anymore. I agree with another anon who is saying that maybe a quick peck here and there is normal though, when they’re celebrating something, for example.

As for the final part of your message, I’ve been thinking about this too. Modern Family puts little emphasis on sex, contrary to many other TV shows. Sex seems to be a huge part of people’s daily lives, sexuality as a whole, but Modern Family chooses to focus on different things and I, personally, really like that. It definitely shows the abundance of things other than sex that can be important between people, in a culture where a lot of people seem to place huge value on sex.
