Modern Family's Claire Dunphy (played by Julie Bowen Luetkemeyer '91) waxes nostalgic when her husband finally agrees to sell their old station wagon on the opening episode of the ABC hit sitcom this fall. Unpacking years worth of old stuff from the trunk, she grows misty-eyed over a jar of sunshine her son, Luke, insisted on bringing back from the beach as a toddler. Her eldest daughter, Haley, left, has no such reverence for her old pink blankie, which she pronounces disgusting and throws on the ground.
