There’s a new bloke on the scene for Haley ( Sarah Hyland), and while Phil ( Ty Burrell, right) takes a while to catch on that he’s more than a work colleague, Claire ( Julie Bowen) is onto the pony- tailed loser from the outset. Not only does he glorify his work at a clothing store with job descriptions such as ‘ jeanius’ and ‘ rack star’, but he also has a couple of ex- wives and a 14- yearold daughter. It’s a great sideshow to plans for a doomed- from- the- outset surprise party for Manny ny ( Rico Rodriguez). Amid it all, Gloria goes into labour. abour.
