One of the storylines from the Wednesday, Oct. 23 episode of "Modern Family" titled "The Help" was awfully familiar to some TV viewers. On Twitter, several people pointed out the similarity between Cam and Mitch's wedding planner storyline and the classic "Seinfeld" episode "The Barber."
Think I've seen this episode of Modern Family ... when it was an episode of Seinfeld called "The Barber."

In the "Modern Family" episode, Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are wooed by Pepper's (Nathan Lane) wedding planning assistant. They hide their true feelings, like they're having an affair with him. Of course, it blows up in their faces. In the "Seinfeld" episode, Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) got his haircut by his barber's nephew and hid the secret from his regular barber. Hijinks ensued.
