Even your smart fridge loved A Star Is Born.

On Wednesday’s episode of Modern Family, currently in its 11th and final season, Cam (Eric Stonestreet) surprises Mitch (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) with a smart fridge, affectionately named Bridgette. But as it turns out, Bridgette is more than just an efficiently-programmed appliance — and proves to be quite a menace in their relationship.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek, Mitch is in the kitchen preparing lunch for himself when Bridgette instructs him to add a slice of apple to the turkey sandwich he’s making — “Trust me, Mitchell,” she promises.

“Okay, well, if there’s one thing I’ve learned this year, it’s listen more to women,” Mitch replies, dutifully adding the fruit slice and taking a bite. “Oh my God, delicious.”

He then starts humming “Shallow,” the hit soundtrack to the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper movie, under his breath. Unprompted, Bridgette starts playing the track — and eventually chimes in herself as Mitch shimmies up to the fridge while they belt out the words together. The scene takes Cam, who enters mid-chorus, by utter surprise.

“What are you doing?” he says. “Were you just singing a duet with the refrigerator?”

“Well, apparently Bridgette has a karaoke function,” Mitch explains. “So I was just standing here eating my turkey and apple sandwich when —”

“Apples on a sandwich?!” Cam demands.

“Yeah, Bridgette — she’s opening me up to new experiences,” Mitch says, giving the fridge an affectionate rub.

Modern Family airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on ABC.
