This week’s Modern Family found the whole crew in the island paradise of Hawaii for Jay’s 63rd birthday celebration. While last week’s episode revealed Jay’s hesitations about his entire family infiltrating his relaxing vacation with Gloria, we see now that the one struggling to relax is Jay himself. After being reminded by his brother that their father passed away at this particular birthday milestone, he ditches the cheeseburgers and throws himself into an endless string of physical activities in an attempt to reverse a lifetime of bad choices.

The Modern Family cast is in Hawaii right this second, filming their big “family vacation” episode.
E-Online just met up with the whole Modern Family cast and creator, and you aren’t going to believe this:
“What we’re trying to do is plant several modern families in several different times and then jump all around,” executive producer Steve Levitan told me. “And then we have a fully underwater episode, too. We’re really gonna embrace it. Why not?”
Clearly, he’s kidding. But so great that he’s a Lost fan! Levitan, who tweeted that this picture was “a good Hawaiian omen for our first day of shooting,” also fesses up his real motivations for taking the cast to Hawaii. “We’re just gonna try to just live up to the Brady Bunch Hawaii episode. It’s not a ratings ploy. Frankly, I’m tired and wanted to go to Hawaii.”

‘Modern Family’s’ Eric Stonestreet on Sofia Vergara: ‘That really tested my ability to play a gay man.’
In the clips below, Zap2it chat with TV’s favorite “Modern Family” couple — Eric Stonestreet (Cam) and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell).
“I go on a date with Gloria because I said a faux pas at a dinner party and I felt really bad about it,” Stonestreet explains in the video. “So we go out for dinner, her and I together. That really tested my ability to play a gay man, spending a week with Sofia Vergara. I said if anybody sees any of my straightness … that’s gonna be the week to see it.”
Executive producer Steve Levitan confirms that the entire cast will fly to Maui next week to shoot an episode slated to air in May.
“We’re going to show them on a family vacation,” reveals Levitan, adding that the trip coincides with Jay’s birthday. “Jay thinks that he and Gloria are going by themselves for this romantic getaway, and she surprises him by inviting the entire family.”
The first part of the two-part episode will be set entirely at the airport as they set off on their big trip. “Initially, we were just going to do [the airport episode],” explains Levitan. “And then as we were shooting it we decided that [viewers] would be somewhat disappointed if we didn’t follow through on the [actual] trip. So now the entire family is going to Hawaii.”
