I liked this episode more than I have the previous couple. Phil and Gloria tend to be very funny and/or sweet in their subplots together, and I thought they made a very cute fake couple in the photoshoot (...and phil was also kind of cute with that rando guy before he was booted out). Sometimes I think that Gloria/Phil would make a better couple than Claire/Phil and Jay/Gloria, especially now that they've really toned done Phil's borderline creepy crush on Gloria from the first couple of seasons that got so tiresome to watch. Now that he's more normal around her and affectionate in a way that feels more appropriate, their scenes are much more charming.
And as much as it was initially dragged down by the whole "haha old people are too stupid to use technology" thing at the beginning, I thought the Claire and Jay plotline also ended up being pleasant. I agree with seacliffsal that they clearly have no idea what to do with Jay's character anymore, but there were some nice father/daughter moments and I thought the video tape thing was cute.
As always, I didn't really care for the Cam and Mitchell subplot but at least we didn't have to watch Haley and Dylan being nonfunctional idiots again this week.
Also, is it a new thing for the Principal of the school to be a bullying jerk to this extent? I can't remember if there have always been hints of him being that way or if it was just invented for this episode
