It also showed their wedding and role as adoptive parents to their daughter, Lily Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. Now, the series aims to broaden the scale of its LGBTQ characters by incorporating a bisexual character.
According to actress Sarah Hyland, her character, Haley Dunphy, is bisexual. Although Dunphy has only ever been seen engaging in heterosexual relationships for each of Modern Family's nine seasons, fans have long speculated Dunphy may also be romantically attracted to females.
And on Wednesday, Hyland announced it via Twitter. But I confirm," Hyland tweeted in response to a fan question.
So far on the series, Dunphy has had a total of nine boyfriends. However, her most serious relationship has been with on-again, off-again boyfriend Dylan, played by openly gay actor Reid Ewing, who's appeared in episodes as early as Modern Family 's pilot.
Another significant relationship Dunphy engaged in was with Andy Adam DeVine , her grandpa's former "manny," whom she started dating in Season 7.
He at times shows a sort of crush-like affection for Gloria. However, he says he "would never stray from Claire," although Gloria did kiss him during a "kisscam" segment at a basketball game in the final episode of season 1, " Family Portrait ".
He is also staring at her when she does something that makes Phil think she is sexy. Phil seems oblivious as to what he says by miscalculating if at all the consequences of his expressions, such as "Phil Dunphy is no straight guy" when he is referring to not being a straight man  or "If you ain't white, you ain't right" referring to the color of a team that he was playing on.
Phil is always reminding Jay of when he fixed his wireless printer, trying to show Jay that he can be manly.
In the Season 3 episode " Dude Ranch ", Phil shows considerable skill both on horseback and with a shotgun. In moments of acute adversity or shock in which most people would curse or swear, Phil utters humorous exclamations: references to food such as, "Sweet Potato Fries!
It is revealed in " Tableau Vivant " that Phil had once tried to break up with Claire but didn't have the courage to do so. A running gag in the show has Phil is running up the stairs often when carrying an object and tripping on a loose step, which causes him to quickly and hastily say: "Gotta fix that step!
Ty Burrell had received many positive reviews for his performance. Hank Stuever from the Washington Post wrote, "A standout performance from Ty Burrell's new twist on the doofus-dad stereotype.
On May 4, , Phil appeared in the first commercials for the National Association of Realtors telling about his "Phil's-osophies".
Arnold Worldwide executive creative director Sean McBride said Phil was written as a Realtor on his show and "embodies many of the attributes that are important in a Realtor: He's honest, he's helpful, he's sincere.
She is often exhausted from stress created by her family but is still a loving mother. Claire is very competitive especially in her obsession of being right, and has a brittle personality that causes her to get angry, paranoid, and freak out easily.
She is very strict about a clean house. She is seen as an experienced parent by Cameron and Mitchell, so she is called upon for her parenting advice.
She enjoys running and reading. She is also very attached to Halloween and describes it as her "crazy lady holiday". In the episode " Open House of Horrors ", it is revealed that the neighbors are frightened of Claire's very graphic and realistic decorations around the house.
Claire is also the most active family member when organizing family get-togethers. When a former co-worker Minnie Driver visits, it is revealed that Claire had a successful job in hospitality management but left her job and married Phil a few months after she became pregnant with Haley.
She shows resentment towards the abandonment of her working career due to seeing the success of one of her former peers, but later realizes her family is more important.
Claire is a perfectionist; according to Phil, "when everybody else sees something beautiful, all she sees is the teeny-tiny flaw.
As her husband Phil once bought her a bracelet for their anniversary, she made him coupons for five free hugs which she was very proud of.
Her step-brother is Manny Delgado. Claire received another sibling through Jay's second wife Gloria — Fulgencio "Joe". She often despises the attention that Gloria gets for her voluptuous figure, and was thrilled to learn that Gloria was pregnant because of all the weight that Gloria would be gaining.
Julie Bowen's performance was praised by Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly who said, "Bowen's Claire could have been a blank blonde cipher.
Far from it: Bowen's wide array of silent gazes at the camera, her slow-burns at her clan's bad behavior, and her ability to freak out without seeming nutso crazy makes her an essential, stand-out part of TV's best freshman ensemble cast.
Haley Gwendolyn Dunphy Marshall Sarah Hyland is the eldest married daughter of Claire and Phil, who is portrayed as the stereotypical teenager.
Haley is depicted as being rather a flirt , who focuses more on social status than studies. She is a little naive, especially when it comes to arguing with her parents.
Haley is embarrassed by her dad, especially when he tries to be friends with her boyfriend Dylan to whom she lost her virginity, as revealed in Season 3.
Haley contemplated moving in with Dylan before learning that she got into college in the final episode of the third season.
After a run-in with the law on campus in Season 4, she is expelled from college and moves back into the Dunphy home. She begins a fashion blog and goes to community college to study business and photography, eventually showing her photos in an exhibit at which she sells them.
In Season 6, she gets a job working for fashion designer Gavin Sinclair as his assistant, doing some of her own design work.
In season 9 episode 13, she starts working at lifestyle company Nerp. Throughout Season 6, Haley develops feelings for Andy Jay and Gloria's hired nanny and they begin hanging out often.
In the episode "White Christmas", Andy and Haley begin a relationship. At the end of Season 7, Andy is offered a job in his hometown in Utah and initially turns it down, but Haley encourages him to pursue it, insisting that they will figure out a way to be together.
As they say goodbye at the airport, she admits that Andy is the first man she has ever really loved. As of " Weathering Heights ", she is dating weatherman Rainer Shine, though they broke up later in the season after he proposed and they both realized they weren't ready.
In thirteen episode of season 9, "In Your Head", she starts dating Dr. Arvin Fennerman, Alex's astrophysics teacher at Caltech. However, a divorced Dylan reappears in the season 10 premiere and confesses he's still in love with her and wants to be worthy of her.
They sleep together, and Haley finds herself in love with both men. In the fourth episode of the season, "Torn Between Two Lovers", she finally decides Dylan is "the one" and breaks up with Arvin.
In the episode "Did the Chicken Cross the Road? In the episode "Can't Elope", she marries Dylan. Characteristically nerdy but still cute, Alex is the most intelligent of the three siblings and a polar opposite of Haley.
As a stereotypical precocious kid, Alex displays a sense of superiority due to her intelligence, constantly putting her accomplishments on display and demanding recognition for them.
An overachiever, she plays the cello ; she chose to play the cello because she would have a better chance at being in a university orchestra than if she played the violin as cellos are more in demand.
While she has sometimes felt isolated from her peers once sadly telling her parents "I have no friends" , she has a group of nerdy fans at school who idolize her.
Haley sincerely tells Alex at one point she is smart and attractive in a successful effort to get her to give a light-hearted graduation speech instead of a harsh one it worked well enough that her classmates invited her to a post-ceremony party.
At the beginning of Season 3, she was in a long-distance relationship with a boy she met in Wyoming. Later in the season, she went to her prom with a classmate who everyone but himself knows is gay.
It was established in the episode " Tableau Vivant " that Alex is a light sleeper, as she was surprisingly energetic when staying awake nearly a whole night thinking about her upcoming art project.
The episode " Heart Broken " reveals that Alex suffers from hemophobia. In the second episode of Season 5 onwards, she started wearing new glasses. In Season 6, Alex is currently seeking the best college to enroll in and have a thought about getting away from her family for a while.
While Alex was not accepted into Harvard , she was accepted into Caltech , where she has been attending since the start of Season 7.
She had to leave for a little due to getting mono. As of the season 9 episode "Royal Visit", she's dating Bill Jimmy Tatro , a firefighter who rescued her when she burned a bagel in her room's microwave.
Though he is handsome and muscular, Alex is a bit ashamed because he is not very smart. At times, he can be a troublemaker, once shooting his sister with a toy gun and getting into a fight with Manny at school.
Luke is playful, very innocent and does not always understand the repercussions of his actions, like most children; he once announced at a family gathering that his mom thought her dad's new wife was a " gold digger ", although he had misheard it as "coal digger".
Luke is also thought to be rather vacuous because of many questionable actions, such as getting his head stuck in the banister and jumping on the trampoline wearing only underwear and a box on his head.
A psychologist who evaluated him said his type of behavior was normal for someone with above-average intelligence; afterwards, Phil and Claire accidentally left a wandering Luke behind when they left the psychologist's office, but they ended up being impressed by how calmly he made his way back home in a limo and decided he would do just fine in life.
Subsequent events have borne this out, as he only got into one college he applied to and did so because Phil gave up some magic secrets to his former rival-turned-Dean of Admissions but has become a well-paid social fixture at Jay's country club and shows he can use his connections to help his family.
He is frequently seen playing a Nintendo 3DS. Throughout the series, he is often seen playing with Manny.
Often, they do not just play, but develop plans, plots, and ploys. Being that Luke's birthday is November 28, it sometimes coincides with Thanksgiving.
Dylan Stardust Marshall Reid Ewing , sometimes called "D-Money" by Phil, is the on-and-off boyfriend and eventual husband of Haley Dunphy, introduced as a senior in high school who plays guitar, sings in a band, and has no plans for college.
He is often put into awkward situations by Phil, who wishes for the two to be friends. He also sometimes reveals a sort-of attraction to Claire when he gives her a rose on Valentine's Day saying that "every mom should look as tasty as you when they're old.
Claire strongly dislikes him, to the point of trying to introduce other boys to Haley just so that they break up or don't get back together. He loves the confidence Haley gets from being part of such a loving family and does not mind hanging around during family get-togethers.
The song was about sex and most of the family were surprised by the suggestive lyrics, but it became stuck in all of their heads the next day.
Dylan temporarily leaves the cast to work on a ranch after Haley rejects his marriage proposal in the first episode of season three, " Dude Ranch ".
In the episode " Virgin Territory ", Alex reveals that Haley had lost her virginity to Dylan before they broke up; she told Claire three months earlier, but not Phil.
In the episode "Disneyland," Dylan reveals he lost his job on the ranch and moved back to California, taking a job at Disneyland as a Dapper Dan.
He and Haley get back together to Claire's dismay and to Phil's delight. In the season finale, "Baby on Board", Haley discovers she was accepted to college.
She and Dylan maintain their relationship, and Dylan lives with the Dunphys for a few months. In Season 4, Dylan is invited to move in with Cam and Mitch after his job as a limo driver led him to their Valentine's Day party.
He ends up getting fired and while Cam and Mitch separately tell him he can stick around, Lily angrily tells him he isn't welcome there and shouts at him until he leaves the house.
In Season 8, he marries a doctor named Elaine Kolchek and has three step-kids much to Haley's dismay as she feels she lost her "romantic safety net".
He is the owner of a closet company and is presumably the wealthiest family member as well occasionally the chieftain of the family in many situations.
Jay has a dry and sarcastic sense of humor. Like his son and daughter, Jay is generally more realistic, mild-mannered, and sensible than his partner, Gloria, who is unashamed of the fact Jay is many years her senior.
A recurring plot involves Jay's relationship with his son Mitchell, which became more complicated due to Jay's reaction to Mitchell's sexual orientation.
Humor and plot points are also derived from Jay's relationship with his son-in-law Phil; Jay often mistreats and antagonizes him despite Phil's constant attempts to gain Jay's approval.
Nevertheless, Jay thinks very highly of Phil, despite their differences, and said so in Season 3. Jay has several masculine character attributes including fondness for sports and model airplanes.
Jay is shown also to occasionally be compassionate, showing affection for members of the extended family particularly to Manny, his step-son; their relationship seems to become more positive as the series progresses, eventually becoming a typical father-son relationship and Jay eventually comes to see Manny as his third child.
In the finale of the third season, it is revealed that Gloria is pregnant, but Jay does not know yet. In the first episode of the fourth season, Gloria tells Jay and he tells her that it's the greatest news he has heard.
The baby was male, which relieved Jay because it says in the episode "Snip" that he was afraid of having a girl. Jay is a dog-lover.
He sometimes goes overboard in treating his dog Stella as his favorite member of the family much to Gloria's chagrin, and Jay was extremely happy when he realized that Joe was not allergic to Stella, but to Gloria's face cream, in the episode "Rash Decisions".
Jay is farsighted hyperopia. His birthday is April 1, as shown in the episode "Grill, Interrupted". She is a very loving wife and mother.
In the episode " Coal Digger ", Luke calls her a coal digger, a mishearing of when Claire called her a gold digger.
The most frequent running gag involving the character is her mispronunciation of common English words and phrases, and Vergara confirmed that many of these mispronunciations are improvised.
Gloria often supports Manny when Jay tries to tell him to be less sensitive or hide his cultural background. However, she does occasionally display some odd parenting techniques.
For example, when Manny was first born, she had wanted a daughter, and therefore for the first year of his life dressed him like one and told all her friends he was a girl.
She later told Manny after he found the pictures of himself like this that the child in question was his "twin sister who died at the age of one.
When they get to the school to return the poncho and realize that Manny has a plan to play folk music to his classmates with his pan flute which was inside the poncho , Gloria tells Jay to break the flute, saying in her interview that "the poncho by itself is fine.
The poncho, plus the flute, plus the stupid dance? My son will die a virgin. Gloria is a terrible driver, though she is oblivious to this.
She is also very comfortable with death on one occasion killing and beheading a rat with a shovel right before she left for church and leaving the head "as a warning to the other rats" , on account of a couple of her relatives being butchers.
She has a very high tolerance for spicy food, and has perhaps the strongest religious views of any member of the family. Mitchell and Cameron asked her and Jay to become guardians of Lily if anything were to happen to them.
Gloria has something of a shady past. Doubts have also been raised as to her income: her only mentioned employment was as a hairdresser and later as a taxi driver , and Claire, Jay's daughter, originally labeled Gloria as a "gold-digger" for marrying her wealthy father.
It seems likely that Jay is her major source of income. However, in the Season 5 episode " A Hard Jay's Night ", the hairshop where she used to work is shown, and it is clarified that Jay is indeed her current major source of income.
In the final episode of Season 3, it was revealed that she is pregnant. Her newest son Fulgencio a. Joe was born in the Season 4 episode "Party Crasher".
In the episode " Fifteen Percent ", she reveals that she comes from a neighborhood of prostitutes after she said her neighborhood had a saying that "Love is just around the corner".
Manuel Alberto Javier "Manny" Delgado Rico Rodriguez , Gloria's son from her first marriage to Javier, is very outgoing and not the least rather self-conscious,  although he has become somewhat self-conscious in Season 5.
He is very intelligent, probably second after Alex, but much in a street smart way. He is also mature and intuitive for his age and is often shown doing adult-like things, such as having conversations with Claire about her marriage and kids, and drinking coffee.
He even engaged in stock market business and briefly considered following in his biological father's footsteps by becoming a professional gambler.
Manny has inherited his mother's passion for life although he is terrified of butterflies , though Gloria has also said, "Manny is passionate, just like his father.
He plays for a football team, fences , and is a skilled chess player. He is often seen wearing or intending to wear his "burgundy dinner jacket.
Gloria discovered she was pregnant with him in the final episode of season 3 , his existence was revealed to the rest of the cast in the first episode of season 4 , and he was born in " Party Crasher ".
Joe's christening took place in " Fulgencio ". In the Season 5 episode " Spring-a-Ding-Fling ", he begins walking. In episode " Larry's Wife " Gloria calls over the priest believing that there is evil in Joe.
The priest does a blessing on Joe but leaves when Joe pick-pocketed the priest's wallet. Gloria returns the wallet and apologizes.
Later in the Season 5 episode " And One to Grow On ", it is Joe's birthday and Jay wants to reuse birthday decorations from Manny's birthday party the day before but Gloria refuses.
She was the dog of a man named Guillermo Lin-Manuel Miranda , an inventor, but when Jay convinced him to abandon his idea and return to school, Guillermo gave Stella to the family.
Jay wanted to get rid of her but eventually came around. She is very problematic, and often destroys things, mostly Gloria's belongings.
However, Jay has a great affection for her letting her sleep in his bed and feeding her from the dinner table , which infuriates Gloria because Jay seems to pay more love and attention to the dog than his own wife.
He is a low-key, mild-mannered person, but has many sensitive qualities. At most times, he is the exact opposite of Cameron which usually causes disagreements.
Cameron acts as a counterbalance to Mitchell's uptight, worrying ways. Because of his mild-mannered, uptight nature, he is sometimes embarrassed by Cameron's flamboyance.
He is uncomfortable with public displays of affection, as well as invasion of his personal space. He is an overprotective and cautious father.
He is shown to be a capable lawyer, even representing an entire building full of people one-by-one with no prior notice. Mitchell is a musical theater fan and enjoyed ice skating as a kid, though he later admitted that he liked working with his sister as a team more than the ice skating itself.
Although he fancies himself as a handyman, everybody is afraid of him around tools. From his degrees hanging in his office, it is apparent that Mitchell attended undergrad at Cornell University and law school at Columbia University.
Cameron Scott "Cam" Tucker Eric Stonestreet ,  is Mitchell's husband of eight years, and one of Lily's fathers, who has a very big dramatic personality.
He frequently behaves like a drama queen. His bubbly outgoing personality contrasts to Mitchell's uptight manner, which often causes the two to bicker between themselves.
He was a starting center for the University of Illinois football team which he and Jay bond over, much to Mitchell's envy and is a very big sports fan.
Cameron also fosters many unusual hobbies such as collecting antique fountain pens, being adept in Japanese flower arrangement, and is a classically trained Auguste clown named Fizbo.
At the beginning of the series he acts as a stay-at-home dad to Lily, though it is mentioned that he had taught music prior to this. In the later seasons Cameron begins working as a football coach.
Cameron is also an experienced rock drummer and as a result was brought in at the last minute to play in Dylan's band when they needed a replacement percussionist.
It is also mentioned that Cameron was considerably thinner and in better shape when he first started dating Mitchell.
For the first few episodes, his relationship with Mitchell was somewhat strained as they disagreed on almost everything and showed very different parenting techniques.
But in more recent episodes the relationship is much happier. Common interests, like art, led them to form a relationship.
Mitchell is impressed by Cameron's quirks, such as speaking French to which Cameron replies, "un peu," or "a little".
Cameron is also said to be a huge fan of the movie The Wizard of Oz in the episode "Leap Day" when Mitchell plans him a surprise birthday party.
During season 4, Cameron goes back to work as a music teacher at Luke and Manny's school. In season 5, his music teacher job is eliminated, but he becomes the freshman football coach and physical education teacher.
In season 6, he is promoted to varsity coach and his undefeated record and open homosexuality earned him a story on the local television news.
Eric Stonestreet has received positive reviews for his characters. In a review of the first season, Robert Canning of IGN named Cameron Tucker the best character of the season saying, "Cameron's many talents and passions revealed over the course of this first year became an ever-building running gag.
But it will be hard to top the sheer joy that was 'Fizbo'. When she was introduced to the family, they accepted her with open arms, although Mitchell originally wanted to wait to tell them about her.
Cameron and Mitchell practiced the Ferber method on Lily when she was a baby, but Cameron usually couldn't resist catering to her during the night, sometimes even watching movies such as Scarface , which Cam claims she likes possibly because of the bright colors, particularly the club shooting scene.
Lily did not speak for the first two seasons and was portrayed by twins Ella Hiller and Jaden Hiller. For season three, the twins "retired", their mother claiming they did not enjoy acting.
Since she has been able to speak, Lily has displayed a penchant for precocious sarcasm and theatricality, which can be attributed to the influence from each of her fathers.
Larry is the pet cat of Lily, Cameron and Mitchell. They adopt him in " Bringing Up Baby " season 4, episode 1 after Cameron and Mitchell failed to adopt a second child.
It had been implied that she may be mentally ill due to her somewhat manipulative and sometimes aggressive ways. It is implied that she was initially more accepting of Mitchell's sexual orientation than Jay was when he first came out.
She often uses her close relationship with Mitchell to get him to do things he does not want to do.
Jay wanted to divorce her after a spectacular fight they had while their kids were still in school he taped over an episode of Dallas to record an NFL game that, ironically, featured the Dallas Cowboys but was inspired by an animatronic Abraham Lincoln exhibit at Disneyland to stick things out until Claire and Mitchell reached adulthood.
She is still bitter over Jay's remarriage to Gloria and even attempted to ruin their wedding, which she convinced Mitchell to talk Jay and Gloria into inviting her to; she got drunk and made rude and inappropriate toasts and eventually had to be dragged out of the reception, in the process ruining the wedding cake.
She is very aggressive towards Gloria, often trying to physically attack her. DeDe is also passive aggressive toward Cameron about his weight, and is often critical of Claire, especially her appearance.
She also seems to be very good friends with Manny as they write letters to each other talking about their personal issues. DeDe is also a famous author and poet.
A running gag throughout the series is that DeDe's arrival is always forewarned by bad omens, birds crashing into the window or peaceful scenarios spontaneously turning chaotic.
Her relationship with Gloria improved in the episode " Arrested. She found new sympathy for Gloria, and the two bonded over Jay-bashing when DeDe tells Gloria that she was always the one having to change diapers, clean spit-up, and buy things for the baby.
Gloria, in turn, found new sympathy for DeDe, suggesting that her lack of support from Jay was what caused her to become "so crazy". In the season 10 episode, "Good Grief", DeDe dies peacefully in her sleep while on a trip with her women's group.
On Christmas, the family shared a webcam chat with him. Frank returns in "Travels with Scout" when he travels cross country without Phil's mother and shows up with a dog that he says she has allergies to.
He ends up taking the dog back with him. This is clearly mentioned by Claire in "Closet, You'll Love it! His attitude is a near carbon copy of Phil's personality.
At the end of season 4, it is revealed that Frank's wife Phil's mother had died. In season 8, Frank starts dating Lorraine, Phil's childhood babysitter and crush.
Later, he proposes to her and in episode 19, they get married. In the episode "Legacy", Phil visits Frank in Florida after hearing some concerning news about him and then at the end of the episode, Frank dies.
He and Gloria were divorced; in the pilot , Gloria says all they did was "fight and make love," at one point leading them to fall out of a window.
Manny looks up to him, but Javier always lets him down, while Jay is left downcast by the reminders that Manny has another dad. He is oddly gifted when it comes to betting on horse racing.
He has many connections to matadors and baseball players. He and Jay became close, but in the end Javier lets Jay down just as he does Manny.
Barb Tucker Celia Weston is Cameron's mother. She first appeared in the episode " Mother Tucker ".
In that episode, she visits Cameron and Mitchell. While Cameron earnestly declares that his mother is wonderful, Mitchell is less sure because she has a habit of touching Mitchell inappropriately.
When Mitchell finally tells Cameron about this, Barb happens to walk in on them and hears his complaints. Later, she apologizes to Mitchell.
Unfortunately, she does this while he is in the bathtub. In " The Wedding ", she attends her son's wedding to Mitchell and almost ends it with Merle, but Jay and Gloria manage to reconcile the two.

She returns in " Valentine's Day 4: Twisted Sister ", she visits her sister and her family and tries to make a move on Jay, because she is still infatuated with him.
She then tries to get Gloria out of the picture and when Jay tells Gloria, she doesn't believe him. Jay goes to his room to apologize to Sonia and then she tries to make a move on him there, only to be heard via a baby monitor and then Gloria enters and realizes Jay was right and the sisters resume fighting over him.
In "Farm Strong", she comes for a visit from the farm and Mitchell and Cameron are afraid to tell her that they are getting married because they do not want to hurt her feelings of her still being single and because Cameron claims that Pam is very sensitive.
Lily is the one who finally tells her. Pam seems extremely happy with the news and shares her own news with them; she is engaged to Cameron's first crush, Bo Johnson.
Cameron gets really upset hearing that and Pam tells him that no one in the family wanted to tell him because he is too sensitive and they were protecting him, something that contradicts Cameron's earlier assertion and makes Cameron even more upset.
When the whole family gathers at Jay and Gloria's house, Cameron wants to prove that he is not that sensitive as Pam accuses him to be and asks everyone to tell him things they were hiding from him because they were trying to protect him.
Everyone says their part and Cameron, as much as he tries not to break down in tears, after hearing Lily admitting that she pretends to fall asleep when he reads to her so he can leave her alone, breaks down in tears and finishes locking himself in the bathroom.
Mitchell and Pam go to comfort him, and Pam tells him that he may have difficulty with bad news, but everyone always wants to share good news with him because he would always appreciate it.
In " The Wedding ", she has small cameos at Mitchell and Cameron's wedding. In "Frank's wedding", she comes to visit and auditions for a modeling job.
By the end of the episode, it is revealed that she is looking for jobs, so that she can better take care of herself, as she is revealed to be pregnant, which is hidden by her body and weight.
She goes into labor at the house and has her baby. She is first mentioned in " The Kiss " when Jay tells everyone that his father had kissed him one time in Jay's entire life and that was when one time he came up behind Jay, kissed him on the back of the head and said "Goodnight, Becky.
In " The Escape ", Becky makes her first appearance. She is in a nursing home, recovering from a stroke.
It is revealed that she is a mean woman and such a monster and she and Jay have their differences. Becky and Jay hadn't spoken in 9 years and she had met Gloria only once, at their wedding.
When Claire and Mitchell were kids, they were very frightened of her. Claire brings along a tomato soup.
