He looks up to Jay and is often seen working for Claire, even though neither one of them seem to think highly of him. Ben starts dating Alex in "Do You Believe in Magic" after she finds out he has been sending her flowers as a secret admirer. They would later break up in "It's the Great Pumpkin, Phil Dunphy".
- Ben has a tattoo of a Tasmanian devil on his butt. ("Finding Fizbo")
- Ben once kissed Claire when he thought she was coming on to him and was afraid he would lose his job if he refused. ("Five Minutes")
|Ben: [after being kissed by Alex]: Wow. Aha. Okay, that was very cool but you should know that I have dedicated my life to closets, I am obsessed with your grandfather and I sleep with a body pillow that I put a nightgown on.
Alex: Stop, you're making it better!
