In the second aptly titled episode, “Snip,” Phil decides to undergo a vasectomy. As Claire notes in the clip below, his choice to go under the knife is an “essential part” of their five year plan. Why five years? Because by then, Luke will be off to college — or at least “somewhere” — and Phil and Claire will finally get to live out their empty nest dreams. Snippedy doo da, here he comes!

“I’m sorry, is it a vasecto-you, or a vasecto-me?” — Phil Dunphy.

The “Modern Family” doubleheader begins on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 9/8c on ABC.
