ABC has revealed the six episodes which will feature in a Modern Family marathon on Wednesday, March 11, ahead of the show's series finale in April.
Fans had the opportunity to vote on Twitter to select five fan favorites to air along with the first episode that started it at all.
8:00-8:30 p.m. – Pilot (OAD: 9/23/09) – Today’s families come in all shapes and sizes, and that is very evident in Jay Pritchett’s very full and very blended family. Jay and his new gorgeous, and much younger wife, Gloria, are happily married and getting accustomed to their new life together. But when her pre-teen son develops a crush on a 16-year-old girl, it becomes apparent that Jay and Gloria may have some generational and cultural gaps to bridge. Jay’s grown daughter, Claire, has a family of her own—three kids and a husband, Phil, who is practically a giant kid himself. Things get a little tense when their teenage daughter, Haley, brings a boy home and Phil tries to adopt the cool, hip dad approach. Then son Luke misuses his BB gun, which results in Phil and Claire turning it right back on to him. Jay’s grown son, Mitchell, is in a committed relationship and has just adopted a baby girl from Vietnam with his life partner, Cameron. They’re going through the joys and anxieties of bringing a baby home for the first time, but Mitchell still has the daunting task of introducing their new addition to the whole family.
8:30-9:00 p.m. – Caught in the Act (OAD: 1/19/11) – Plans backfire when the kids go to surprise their parents with breakfast in bed on their anniversary, only to catch Phil and Claire in a compromising position. Meanwhile, Jay and Gloria’s Vegas getaway is thwarted by a brutally honest email that was accidentally sent to Claire, and Mitch and Cam desperately try to get an “in” at the hot new neighborhood restaurant whose owner happens to be a mom (played by Rachael Harris) at Lily’s preschool.
9:00-9:31 p.m. – Door to Door (OAD: 10/5/11) – Everyone sets their eyes on a goal: Jay is determined to help Manny sell wrapping paper for a school fundraiser; Claire petitions the city for a stop sign to be installed at a high-traffic intersection; Mitchell is hell-bent on proving a point with Cameron, and neither one of them will back down; Phil and Luke will stop at nothing to create a viral video sensation; and Gloria is desperate to find Stella after losing her.
9:31-10:00 p.m. – Las Vegas (OAD: 3/26/14) – The adults are Vegas-bound when Jay hooks them up with Excelsior Level hotel accommodations, courtesy of one of his big clients; but after learning there’s an even higher level, Jay becomes obsessed with upgrading. Meanwhile, everyone’s sneaking around when Claire secretly hits the tables to win back money she lost years ago; Phil goes underground auditioning for a secret society of magicians; Cam ducks out of a spa day with Mitch to join their friend’s bachelor party shenanigans, and Gloria is determined to hide a female version of dog butler Barkley from Jay.
10:00-10:30 p.m. – Connection Lost (OAD: 2/25/15) – Claire’s computer becomes the hub of all the family’s activities when she gets stuck at the airport and is desperate to reach Haley after a big fight. After FaceTiming with Phil and the rest of the family to help track her down, Claire quickly turns to online snooping which inevitably becomes disturbing really quickly and everyone gets sucked into the online drama.
10:30-11:00 p.m. – The Alliance (OAD: 2/14/16) – Hayley’s plan for a fun-filled girl’s day with Rainer Shine’s teen daughter may be a little more angst-filled than expected. Meanwhile, Luke finds himself in a compromising position with a widow at the club (played by Joely Fisher) and unwittingly helps his grandpa, Jay, with his petition. At the Pritchett-Tucker home, Gloria, Phil and Cam have formed a secret alliance to ensure their respective “mistakes” are concealed from their spouses. However, their diabolical plan may be derailed when Mitchell starts suspecting something just isn’t right.
