Modern News #25 – “Lifetime Supply” (3×11)

On the next episode of Modern Family, when Phil’s lifetime supply of razors runs out right around the same time he has an unsettling doctor’s visit, he takes it  as a very bad omen.

Synopsis: After having a doctor’s visit but then missing the call with the test results, Phil automatically jumps to conclusions and starts saying his goodbyes. Meanwhile Javier pops up unannounced again and takes Manny to the horse races for a belated birthday celebration, and a subtle competition ensues when Mitchell brings home an environmental law award and it becomes a game of who has the bigger trophy.
