The Hilarious New Book by the Writers of the Emmy-winning Hit Show Modern Family

Every week, the families of Modern Family have something to learn. Sometimes it's a lesson about parenting. Other times, it's about surviving marriage--or getting along with the dreaded in-laws. But no matter what, the Pritchetts always find a fresh and incredibly funny way to teach us a little bit about life and love along the way.

Now, America's most beloved family has finally opened up their albums and shared some of their favorite quotes, photos, and memories for us to enjoy all over again. Touching on everything from motherhood and teenagers to siblings, school, and love, Modern Family: Wit and Wisdom from America's Favorite Family features some of the funniest lines from the show, including:

Claire: Look at them: A minute ago they were babies, and now they're driving, and soon we'll all be dead.

Phil: I called the florist and ordered one dozen Mylar balloons. Good luck staying mad, honey.

Gloria: I'm Colombian. I know a fake crime scene when I see one.

Jay: She's my daughter. You're my wife. Let's remember what's important here: There's a football game on.

Mitchell: It's Cameron's turn to be out in the world, interacting with grown-ups while I get to stay at home and plot the death of Dora the Explorer.

With exclusive chapter introductions by each family member, this book will leave the show's millions of fans laughing out loud at--and falling even more in love with--the funniest family on television.

Created by Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, Modern Family is one of the most popular and critically acclaimed shows on television. The show's writers and actors have won multiple Emmys and Golden Globes, as well as awards from the Screen Actors Guild and Writers Guild of America. The Pritchett family has won a few trophies here and there, but Mitchell destroyed them all in a fit of jealous rage.
