    if then statements confusion

    I am reading information from binary sockets.

    I have an array of movie clips, each with a different instance name:
    ex: MCarray:Array=new Array (mc1,mc2,mc3,mc4,mc5);
    I have already done all the coding for the arrays so theres no confusion there.

    I need a statement that says:
    "if the incoming variable refers to mc1+2, then make mc1 go to frame 2"
    "if the incoming variable refers to mc2+2, then make mc2 go to frame 2"
    if the incoming variable referrs to mc3+2, then make mc3 go to frame 2"
    and so on....

    does that make sense? anyway the problem with that is that i just want ONE statement because I will eventually have over a hundered movie clips, and so I don't want to make a hundred if-then statements for each function.

    there must be a way to say
    my.addEventListener(ProgressEvent.SOCKET_DATA, myfunction);
    function myfunction(e:ProgressEvent):void{
           if("incoming variable=one of the movie clips from the array"+"2"){
               MCarray.(make that movie clip which was named go to frame 2);
    any ideas? thanks
