Goofs
Mitchell and Cameron adopted a child from Vietnam. This is legally impossible as Vietnam's laws forbid a child to be adopted by single parents or same sex couples. They could still adopt the child illegally but then it would be impossible to bring it back to the States.

Q
Is this supposed to be a documentary?
A
http://www.nj.com/entertainment/tv/index.ssf/2010/01/modern_family_co-creator_steve.html On whether it's a documentary or not: Levitan said that in the original pitch, it was explicitly a documentary, made by a Dutch filmmaker named Geert Floorjte who had lived with Jay's family as a teenage exchange student and developed a crush on Claire (while Mitchell had a crush on him). In the end, he and Christopher Lloyd decided it was an unnecessary component of the show - especially since they weren't sure how much they liked the idea of their characters letting themselves be filmed."Its a conversation we have a lot," he said. "Is it a true documentary, or is it a family show done documentary-style? I prefer the latter because I dont like those families who let cameras in their houses in real life. I just cant stand those shows. So it makes me it would make me question them a little bit. Who would allow all of this to be filmed by a crew? So I like the idea that its just our style of storytelling."
Q
How well does this series represent the LGBT community?
A
There was early criticism that the series shied away from showing any physical intimacy between Cameron and Mitchell. This was addressed in a later season, although the producers always claimed that they had intended to do so anyway, irrespective of the criticism.
Q
What are the Dunphy women watching when they're on their periods?
A
A Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals ad featuring "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan.
