Modern Family: The Dunphys and Manny Get a Crash Course in Resolutions (VIDEO)

Originally posted 01/06/2015 10:45AM

[BRIGHTCOVE "3972602504001" "" "" "auto"] There's nothing like a near-death experience to bring a Modern Family together.

With the kids yelling in the backseat, Phil (Ty Burrell) blasting music, Claire (Julie Bowen) arguing with Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) over the phone, and Phil hopping on a call himself, it's total mania as the family – including Manny (Rico Rodriguez) – heads to its favorite pancake place.
