After seven years and nearly nine seasons, Phil Dunphy's (Ty Burrell) fledgling career as a real estate agent has paid off. On the latest episode ("Brushes With Celebrity?") of ABC's Modern Family Wednesday night (Nov. 29), the Dunphys and Pritchetts encounter celebrities in the most mundane places. But for Phil, mundane was beyond monumental: He got to show a house to his music hero, Coldplay's frontman Chris Martin.
We are talking about Phil Dunphy, though, so something had to go wrong. And it did. Phil got sick ("Oh my God, you've gone all yellow!" Chris says, concerned, before Phil laughs and jokes, "it's like your song") and tried as he might to fight it so he could spend as much time with Martin as possible, he passes out and ends up in the hospital. His downfall? "A massively inflamed testicle."
