About this online video


"Great Expectations" is the name of the eighth episode of the ABC series Modern Family. It premiered on ABC in the United States on November 18, 2009. The episode was written by Joe Lawson and directed by Jason Winer.

Meanwhile, Mitchell and Cameron call up their former friend and reputed party girl, Sal (Elizabeth Banks), for a long overdue night out on the town and Jay hosts a party for the children of all three families.
