So last night, when we were watching Modern Family, I was DELIGHTED to hear a Mary Poppins reference! Jay took his stepson Manny (who is wise beyond his years) to see the Sound of Music at a movie theater. Manny was lecturing Jay about acting on his angry impulses, when this happened...see the clip from Hulu below!
Can't see the clip? Here's the gist - a loud guy behind Jay and Manny starts talking on his cellphone saying that his family dragged him to see the movie and it featured the "chick from that crapfest Mary Poppins." Manny (the 6th grader) loses his cool and tears the cell phone away from the kid and destroys it. Cut to a documentary-style scene in which Manny addresses the camera and says that all the long nights his mom worked, the only thing that kept him company was Mary Poppins. "You got a problem with Poppins? Then you got a problem with ME!"
And now I have my new life motto. :)
