  • Eric Stonestreet on being approached about the show: "For Jesse and I, we get comments and compliments from gay moms and gay dads, and kids of same sex parents; they say, 'Hey, thanks for being a couple that I can point to,' like, 'Cam and Mitchell are kind of like my family.' Things like that that transcend our job."
  • Stonestreet, on being overwhelmed by costar Vergara's assets: "We passed that in week two. We got all the lurid comments out of the way, at least I did. I just can barely not stare at her. Am I looking now?"
