Stonestreet said about their characters’ heartwarming arcs, “It’s a rare opportunity you get as actors. You never think of that when you’re out there auditioning for different parts in TV shows and not getting them, and then to finally get a gig like this that is really, truly — not to put too much importance on it, but owning it a little bit — having social impact, cultural impact. We hear it from kids, we hear that from parents, so we know it’s real.”
