‘Modern Family’ Mentions Jimmy

October 21st, 2010

The ABC comedy “Modern Family” mentioned Jimmy Buffett in this week’s episode.

From Wikipedia’s episode entry:

Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) soon learn that all of Lily’s friends have been put in preschool causing the two to panic. Mitchell calls Claire if Wagon Wheel is a good school and asks her if she can get them an appointment. At Wagon Wheel the assistant tells them with their diversity (with Mitchell and Cameron being gay and Lily being asian). Soon Mitchell starts calling Cameron his life partner to seem even more diverse to make it in Billingsley. They soon become beaten at their own game causing Cameron to pretend to be a Native American. They eventually decide to go to Wagon Wheel after failing their interview.

At one point, the receptionist at one of the schools describes their chances at getting into whatever preschool they want as being very good because of their diversity:

“You’re diverse times three – you’re like Jimmy Buffett tickets to these hybrid-driving straight white folks.”
