Cameron stays back to watch over Alex and Luke, but they get into some crazy mishaps under his care.

Goofs

When Clare calls Jay in the middle of the night to tell him and Gloria that Haley was arrested, they wake up in a dark room. As they awaken, Gloria goes to turn on a nightstand lamp and you can visibly see that her hand doesn't touch the lamp at all. She's just doing the motion. See more »

Quotes

Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: Jay, do you have some time today? We need to go and pick out a stroller.
Jay Pritchett: Just get whatever you want. I mean, it's what you're gonna do anyway.
Gloria Delgado-Pritchett: What I want is a husband who likes to go shopping for a stroller with me.
Jay Pritchett: If you had a husband who liked picking out strollers, you wouldn't be having a baby.

"Arrested" was the absolute funniest episode of four seasons!
8 November 2012 | by JRPActorSee all my reviews

Just hilarious. Excellent writing, direction and acting by the entire cast! Please remember Shelly Long for consideration for a Guest Actress in a Comedy Series!

So glad to see her again!

WE LOVED THIS EPISODE!

Each actor in the show got to display their comedy chops. I suspect that if this is the episode they consider for an Emmy next season it will win for Direction, Writing, Guest Actress, Best Supporting Actor nominations!

SPOILER ALERT

3am phone calls awake all three couples with the arrest of Haley. Situation Comedy at its ABSOLUTE BEST!
