At the end of the episode, when Alice wakes up the family to do calisthetics, after the entire family gets to the top of the stairs, Mike says "Alice, it's 6:00 in the morning". Yet there is a brief gap of silence between "the" and "morning", and Mike's mouth is still moving. It's an urban legend that he swore and that they bleeped it out. Of course, this is unrealistic, as no one else in the scene is seen reacting, as they would have if he really had sworn. The reality is thet there was some kind of editing glitch or dubbing error that caused the audio to momentarily fall out of synch with the video. To confirm this, mute the sound altogether while reciting Mike's dialogue yourself, and you will see that he only says "Alice, it's 6:00 in the morning".
