Kevin Hart appeared in the ‘Treehouse’ episode of ‘Modern Family’

Phil Dunphy is likable and personable, even when Jay doesn’t want him to be. Still, this character noticed that it’s not as easy to make friends as an adult. You can’t just climb up in your treehouse and shout to your neighbors. Or can you?

Although the treehouse started as an exciting adventure for Phil and Luke, the two eventually got frustrated, and Luke left. Phil, who struggled to work alone, threw tools into his neighbor’s yard. That neighbor, played by Kevin Hart, is named Andre. The two become pretty good friends, quickly. 

It turned out that Andre is an orthopedic surgeon and a neighbor of the Dunphys for 8 years. Without the treehouse, though, Phil would not have met him. Then, this character became Phil’s good friend, even helping him buy a car in a later episode.

Phil Dunphy eventually bought the sportscar and brought it home. Claire wasn’t exactly thrilled, even though she stopped to tell Andre it was a beautiful car. Phil Dunphy, clearly seeing how upset his wife was, offered to give Andre a ride home. 

“No. No, no, I’m gonna, uh, I’m-a jog,” Andre said, running away from the Dunphy house. “I’m just gonna jog!”
