Alex Dunphy - Ariel Winter

Alex is younger than most of her relatives, yet she's smarter and better read than Manny and Mitchell ("Other People's Children"). As an overachiever, she uses sarcasm and disdain, yet nobody appreciates her humor. She's also competitive, like her mother Claire, because she's not used to losing.
She takes more care in her academics than Haley or Luke, and she rarely has meltdowns about it, except in "Under Pressure," when she rages at her birthday party and after Claire discovers that Alex has 6 hours of AP homework. Alex broke down and hugged her mother after Claire stated, "I don't know how you don't have a meltdown every day."

Phil Dunphy (Alex Dunphy's Dad) - Ty Burrell

A "cool dad," as Phil calls himself, A committed husband and father, he adores his wife Claire and makes every effort to spend quality time with his three children, yet he frequently fails. "Peerenting" is a term he coined to describe a parenting style that combines talking like a peer and acting like a parent ("Pilot").
As in "Fulgencio," Phil is shown as a kind person who always chooses the high road in dealing with obstacles, except when he is pushed to his limit, as in that film. Phil's desire to be his children's best friend often goes awry, especially as they approach adolescence.
