Modern Family: The Complete Fourth Season
Available on Blu-ray and DVD September 24

Phil Dunphy brings the laughs with every episode of Modern Family!  An entire book could probably be created just from the hilarious things he says (oh wait, there's that fatastic Phil's-osophy book).  Take a look below at the ten very best Phil-isms!

The laughs - and the awards - just keep on coming for the #1 rated "Modern Family," winner of three consecutive Emmy Awards for Oustanding Comedy Series!  With Joy and Gloria's baby on the way and Haley gonig off to college, the entire Pritchett/Dunphy clan faces some major surprises as they bicker and bond over house-flipping headaches, unwanted play dates, and everything from hot-tempered hormones to in-utero karaoke.  Featuring a stellar array of guest stars including Matthew Broderick, Shelley Long and Elizabeth Banks, Season Four takes a heartfelt and laugh-out-loud hilarious look at what it means to be a "Modern Family".

Top 10 Phil-isms


Always keep the rhythm in your feet and a little party in your shoulders.

When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life will be all like ‘Whaaat?!’

If you love something, set it free… unless it’s a tiger.

I always felt bad for people with emotionally distant fathers; it turns out I’m one of them. It’s a miracle I didn’t end up a stripper.

I’ve always said that if my son thinks of me as one of his idiot friends, I’ve succeeded as a dad.

The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you, if you just lower your expectations.

Claire likes to say ‘you can be part of the problem or part of the solution.’ But, I happen to believe you can be both.”

I am brave. Roller coasters? Love 'em. Scary movies? I've seen Ghostbusters like 7 times. I regularly drive through neighborhoods that have only recently been gentrified. So yeah I am pretty much not afraid of anything.

Always look people in the eye, even if they’re blind. Just say ‘I’m looking you in the eye.’

A Realtor's just a ninja in a blazer. The average burglar breaks in and leaves clues everywhere. But not me. I'm completely clueless.

You know, I have not seen this show. I really think that I am missing out on something good though. We tend to wait for a series to finish, then rent them and watch all the episodes over a month or 2 time period. This is definitely going on my must rent list!

Those are AWESOME. This is one of my favorite shows and he & Cam are my two favorites.

I've never seen the show - not surprising because I don't have a TV.

We LOVE Modern Family here! Unfortunately I've lost track of the show since we got rid of our Comcast but I'm sure I could find it again if I wanted to since it's on a basic channel :)
