you by jcpenny. Ooek, trying to figure out which camera to look into. TV's funniest dad with a sneak peek at tonight's episode. Let's take a look. I'm taking off. Why are you going? I thought we were going to give a chicken the best day of its life. Being a realtor man means working on Sundays like priests and Leslie Stahl. Good electrluck to you. Got to make it through this commute. I'll call when I get there. I'm there. Have a great day. That was a long one. Make a Lesley Stahl reference in a joke, you're good. It's incredible. Season after season the writing is still holding up so well. We are -- we are constantly waiting for the moment which they give out, you know what I mean? It's so exhausting. They write basically three episodes a week. Because each family gets a full episode. And they just haven't. You know, it's just been another -- It's smart and funny as it's been. It's a marvel. You guys always blow out Halloween. But a little bit of twist. Usually it's Claire's holiday. Yeah, Phil doesn't understand why Halloween needs to be so scary. So -- which is pretty typical of Phil. There's the costume. Yeah. He decides to create awesome land. A collection of his favorite things on Earth that he puts out for Halloween. My favorite thing is that -- is that every episode I get abused in some way. Usually falling over, getting hit in the head with a basketball. And this time it was with a costume. Okay. We did see the costume right there. But gets to the question coming in, wanting to know what's the strangest thing that ever happen dwroud ed to you on set. I once -- Sophia -- it's in the first gag reel. Sophia knocked over a fake column on the outside of our -- the house where we were shooting a scene. And I thought it was an earthquake. For real? Basically. There's a gag reel of me basically kind of running around, scrambling, looking for, like, a place to hide. And you were not acting. No. Uh-oh. Now, I just found out today, I was Reading up on you, that you don't live in Los Angeles. A very short commute in the show, but you live in Salt Lake City. Yeah, my wife is from salt Lake. And a few years ago my brother and I bought a bar there and subsequently built a beer garden. Opening bars in Salt Lake City, it's a funny idea. We are lucky, we have a lot of extended family who are there and Co owners. It's an unusual place. But there's a large secular population in Salt Lake too. About 70%. Sorchlts business is good. Yeah, business is good. And you're playing a whale soon, "Finding memo." I'm playing a beluga whale. It's fun. It's a blast. Thank you for coming in. And, of course, you can catch the new episode tonight at 9:00/8:00 central on ABC.
