Claire and Cam were hard at work this week on that house they'd bought to flip on "Modern Family." They each revealed the trick they'd been using to manipulate the other along the way. Cam would suggest things way over the top so they could compromise on what he wanted. Claire would overwhelm him with made-up numbers to get her way.
But when it came to a backyard fountain, the two simply could not agree. So Cam brought in an impartial third party -- that would side with him -- in his lesbian friend Pam, returning guest star Wendi McLendon Covey. When Pam flirted a bit with Claire, Cam realized this wouldn't be as easy as he thought.
Claire took it to the extreme to get her way, first stripping down to her white tank top and even spilling water down the front of it. "Oh, no. Now my shirt is all see-through," she said. The AV Club thought this scene a little low-brow for the show.
When Cam asked if Pam was falling for it, she admitted, "I’m not, but I am enjoying this little show tremendously, so thank you."
In the end, Pam sided with Claire and Cam ignored them both. But his water fountain install backfired when it started shooting goldfish back and forth along with the water. TV Fanatic was laughing right along with them, happy to see this storyline return as it provides plenty of comedic material.
Laugh along with "Modern Family" every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
