The Future Dunphys

Series 4 - Episode 19 The Future Dunphys



Tonight’s storylines swing the spotlight onto the families’ futures. Claire’s minor heart incident means she has to go to hospital, where the bed next to her is occupied by a man whose grown-up children bear a horrifying resemblance to how Haley, Alex and Luke could end up. “It’s coming from the future – and it ain’t pretty,” warns Phil. “I don’t understand, in the future I’m not pretty?” replies a puzzled Haley.

Meanwhile, Manny has an interview at a prep school that could take him on a very different path to his blue-collar dad; and little Lily declares that she is gay, prompting
a series of flustered reactions from Mitch that horrify himself more than anyone.


Phil and Claire visit hospital, where they get an unexpected - and frightening - glimpse of the future, while Mitch, Cam and Sofia take Lily to a Vietnamese restaurant to introduce her to her Asian roots. Jay struggles to put his prejudices aside when he accompanies Manny on a tour of a prospective private school.
