This week on ABC's hit comedy series "Modern Family," the three different but related families all tackle various issues in an episode entitled "Big Guns." Returning guest stars include Fred Willard ("Best in Show") who plays Phil's father Frank Dunphy, Steve Zahn ("Treme") and Andrea Anders ("Better Of Ted") who play Ronnie and Amber, the Dunphys' obnoxious neighbours.

Ronnie and Amber have been getting on the Dunphys' nerves ever since they moved in next door. After a friendly competition over Halloween decorations got out of hand, Claire and Phil have been staying away from the neighbours and things have been going smoothly until the boat they have left on their front lawn starts to get on Phil and Claire's nerves. They see the boat as an eye-sore on the front lawn but since they have not been able to take care of the issue themselves, Phil decides to bring in some reinforcement. According to ABC Medianet, Phil's father Frank is brought in as the "big guns" who will help the Dunphys resolve their issue with the next door neighbours. Frank and a bunch of his retiree friends will come in to give Ronnie and Amber a dose of their own medicine.

Meanwhile, over at the Delgado-Pritchett household, Jay and Gloria are having some parenting issues. The two are butting heads about potty training their young son Joe. Jay thinks that the boy is ready to be potty-trained. Gloria, who is known for coddling her older son Manny, feels that Joe is too young to be introduced to the potty.

Over at Mitch and Cam's household, there's also some difference in opinion on some parenting moves. Cam, who has always taken pride in his history as a professional clown, decides to take their daughter Lily to attend clown school. He does this in secret because his husband Mitch, who is a lawyer does not understand the attachment that Cam has to the art of being a clown. All this and more hilarious encounters are to be expected when the Emmy Award Winning series"Modern Family" airs on Wed on ABC.
