Recap

The scene opens, and February 29th is a big day of celebration around the Dunphy-Pritchett houses. Two of them, anyway. It's Cameron's 10th birthday! And no, Mitchell does not think he's ten...chronologically, anyway. Lily and he have a big surprise for Cam: they're going to deck out the entire house to look like The Wizard of Oz, even a pair of ruby red slippers for Cam. Jay and Gloria are heading to a sports bar to watch a soccer game, based on the shirt Gloria was wearing. For Phil and Claire, they're going all out. No work, no school, the whole family is going to take a trapeze class. Even Manny's been dragged into it. They're very excited, except for Claire, who is crying at that ASPCA commercial with the Sarah McLachlan song. Then Haley is freaking out over her cell phone, and Alex just poured orange juice in her cereal. Luke and Manny are panicking and think it's best to leave them behind. But Phil has a plan. First rule of dealing with the cycle: never mention the cycle. ..
