Series 4 - Episode 13 Fulgencio



The comic energy isn’t quite pumping through this episode. It’s not that it’s weak, it’s just not as strong as the last couple — though the whole thing is worth it for an inspired Godfather-spoof sequence near the end that once again majors on Phil.

His three children have problems only an adult can fix, so naturally they’re looking to Claire for help — only she’s not around. With some persuasion Phil convinces them that Claire’s take-no-prisoners approach to obstacles isn’t always best — maybe he can fix things with a charm offensive, or a “hug-icidal rampage”, in Phil-speak. Maybe.

Meanwhile, Jay is coping with Gloria’s armed Colombian relatives and the name Fulgencio — we might be hearing that a lot.


Jay plays host to Gloria's mother and sister, but tension grows when the matter of the baby's name is raised. Meanwhile, Phil tries to cope with Claire's absence and his children's problems, and Mitch and Cam covert an invitation to a prestigious party. Elizabeth Pena guest stars, with Ed O'Neill and Julie Bowen.
