Modern Family is one of the wittiest, funniest and most amusing sitcoms being aired in present times. An amalgamation of colorful personalities and tongue-in-cheek humor, it never ceases to cheer me up. But what one must honestly take away from every episode is -Phil’s unique take on life’s umpteen tests. So here are 6 of Phil’s best lines, which I hope will teach you something new. Take them as one lesson for every day of the week (Uh, Sunday is always a holiday :D)

But we do have Bollywod to help us and we can say, “our friendship is like how Jai-Veeru’s used to be in Sholay”. So we need to thank Bollywood for the examples we can put forward! We at Derailed Douchebaggery bring you to the top 10 Bollywood classics that made us cry a tiny bit and we relived some lost moments of friendship. Also, we did try to replicate their signature moments.

Fans of the critically acclaimed TV series ‘Game of Thrones’ bore witness to the death of one of the most hated characters in the show, Joffery Baratheon played by Jack Gleeson. Gleeson pulls of the performance of a lifetime with his duel of words with Tyrion Lanister portrayed beautifully by Peter Dinklage, resulting in his death by a poisoned cup of wine which Tyrion had handed to him after being forced into embarrassingly acting as the king’s cup bearer at the royal wedding.

Let’s just start off with how brilliantly the writers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas framed the title of this show. As progressing through this brilliant series I felt the loosening of the title’s grip on the series, but later today after watching the *Last Forever* episode, I fell for the genius in it. The title just is as simple as it sounds, How I met your mother, it doesn’t imply the mother’s death or any other part of the series which the series tries to show.
