's Claire Dunphy (played by Julie Bowen Luetkemeyer
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.
