Top 10 Phil's-osophies

A "Phil's-osophy" is a special life lesson learned, and then shared, by Phil Dunphy - a character on the television show Modern Family.

In the show, Phil often recites little pearls of wisdom to the viewers (often at the beginning or end of the episode) and his character has lovingly documented all of these into a book to give his kids when they leave home.

Below are the best Phil'sosophy entries as recited on the show.

The Top Ten

1 When life gives you lemonade, make lemons. Life’ll be all like "What?!"
2 If you love something, set it free. Unless it's a tiger.

Or any other man-eating predator.

3 Success is 1% inspiration, 98% perspiration and 2% attention to detail.

Yup, got it all covered.

4 Watch a sunrise at least once a day.

Sometimes twice if you can make it...

The sun give you hope - belarbi

5 Marry someone who looks sexy while disappointed.

Definitely the best marital advice.

6 The most amazing things that can happen to a human being will happen to you, if you just lower your expectations.

It's all about setting those goals.

7 If you get pulled over for speeding, tell them your spouse has diarrhea.

Who hasn't done that?

8 Take a lesson from Parakeets: If you're ever feeling lonely, just eat in front of a mirror.

Talking to yourself helps too.

9 You can tell a lot about a person from his Biography.

Some say that's the best way.

10 You only get one chance to make a good first impression. I suggest Julia Child because it's easy to do. "Save the Giblets"

You might need to Google Julia Child to truly appreciate this one but it's worth the effort.
