Transcript for 'Modern Family' Star Julie Bowen Offers a Sneak Peek at the Fifth Season
Tv's hottest comedy, "modern family," had earned four emmys, four years in a row. It's now in its fifth season and just aired its 100th episode a couple weeks ago. It's always our pleasure to have two-time emmy award winner, julie bowen, here in the studio. Thank you so much for having me. I love that it's in syndication now. You get to see the early episodes. And you forget how fast you guys -- yeah. And the writing has stayed so sharp. You see the early episodes, you realize where the characters came from. And the humor has always been there. It's always been very fast and very funny. But we've all changed sizes. We've all filled out. I started pregnant. And now, the kids are tall. Everybody's been growing. It's hard to look back at the episodes and realize how -- just right. Maturing. All of you, maturing. Coming into our own. That's it. Remember when we had you and the other cast members. I've been on set with you. I they have treated you to the dunphy's icebox. Yes, you did. It's a special smell. It was unique. It was very unique. Hard to believe that you guys thought at one point, are we going to get picked up again? Are we going to be around for five seasons? Now that we've been around for five seasons, the goal is so much to keep the quality up. And we don't want -- you can't always remain the media darling. You want to do the best job you can. It's possible we feel more pressure than ever. That's a pregnant lady right there, with twins. We're going to show you -- that's when you first were cast. But we'll show you post-twins. This particular scene, it's interesting that you said sometimes when you do a scene, and you get a script, I don't know if your character should do this. Such the case here, when your character, kind of shows up in front of -- oh. I know what this one is. Your daughter's girlfriend's boyfriend. Is this the nurse in boobs. The big coming out party. Oh, boy. Hey, miss dunphy. Hey, dillon. You know I can see you, right? Where is haley at? Haley in the bathroom. She'll be back in a minute. Why would you feel self-conscious about that? The a -- that scene. I just had the twins and I was nursing. Well, this is kind of a borrowed body. You know, this is a temporary situation. And that exactly was the argument. I believe lee daniels wrote that episode, uh-huh. That's why we need to show it, while it's still around. Because it's going away. I know how this works. He's no dummy. He was there on set, cheering me on. Right there. Next to the camera. You talk about the twins. You have three sons. Uh-huh. And you also are very candid about motherhood. Like the oldest one doesn't exactly listen to you? He hasn't heard a word that I've said. But I read a lot of books. And apparently, that's normal at 6, that you know everything. But it is -- we've ended up at the urgent care more than once. As a result of the not listening. We hate helmets. We want to -- we live on a hill. And anything that rolls goes down the hill. Including your son. Exactly correct. You've written this lovely book, is it your oldest -- yes. Oliver has really bad food allergies to nuts and all nuts, actually, and also to bees. He went into anaphylaxis a few years ago, when he was a little kid. And since then, I became aware of what anaphylaxis is. It's a life-threatening to an allergy. And it's a terrible, long, greek word. I made it my mission with anaphylaxis, and they have anaphylaxis101.Com. To make people know the words. And know the signs, know the symptoms, so it's not the foreign concept. Kids are getting food allergies more and more. And they are life-threatening. You need to know what to do. How do avoid the food trigger. And this is one thing that he knows what he's allergic to. And he's very good -- he knows how to read food labels. And before he could read them, he would take them to somebody who would read them for him. You're a good mom. You know? You really -- you really are, julie. I think you have to keep them alive. In the handbook, well-dressed is really far down. Alive sh it's up there. They are a handful. But alive is key. You all have always been so kind to us. Thank you and to everyone. It's wonderful to see you in excellent health. I'm feeling better every day. My god you look good. You can watch "modern family," wednesdays 9:00 eastern, 8:00 central, here on abc.
