TV’s Thanksgiving Moments

In tribute to turkey day, here are my ten fave Thanksgiving moments..

10.  Joey and the Bachelor Thanksgiving  … the ill fated Friends spin off made it to season two, and this episode was about Joey moving to his new house and all being held hostage by Gina (Drea de Matteo) as she has the cast reenact the story of the Tribbiani family Thanksgiving .  Check out  Royal Pains’ Paolo Costanzo as a little Italian lady. Joey and Michael watch as neighbor Zack throws a man party with lotsa bimbos.

9.   Bellyfull of Turkey  How I Met Your Mother   Barney Stinson as helper of the year at a homeless shelter?  Yes because of community service mandated by the courts for public urination, Barney mysteriously helps at Thanksgiving and Robin and Ted discover them.  But then the three are thrown out the shelter and they end up at a Thanksgiving buffet at a strip club.

8.  TOW All the Thanksgvings Friends  As Monica and Chandler keep a secret , the gang continues to celebrate as usual. But this time,  they tell the story of Thanksgvings past. We find out that Chandler and Monica go way back and also see the day when Chandler’s dad comes out . (The reason why he hates Thanksgving)  But the biggest surprise of all is when Chandler admits his true feelings for Monica.


7.  Low in the Mid Eighties   Will and Grace The fab four celebrate Thanksgiving eve and come upon a girl who is blue about her boyfriend. She can’t understand why he is being like this. Then the gang tells her why this is happening to her, her boyfriend is merely coming out. They illustrate this with the tale of when Will comes out to Grace. Karen tells her own tale as well , including how she met Rosie.

6.  Slapsgiving  How I Met Your Mother  Thanksgiving is a little difficult this year since Ted and Robin broke up.  Robin is dating Bob and Ted is dating no one.  Lily is anxious to play the hostess since it is her and Marshall’s first Thanksgiving. One slip and Ted and Robin end up in bed together. But the highlight of the party is when Marshall counts down to his slap to Barney.  Then he makes up a song about it.

5.  TOW the Rumor  Friends  It may have been a sweeps stunt , but it was a winner. Former  hunky husband of Jennifer Aniston , Brad Pitt plays Will , a formerly fat friend of the Gellers. His teen life was made hell by one person, Rachel.  Will reveals that he formed the I Hate Rachel Green club and his co founder was the one person who has been obsessed with her since he was a teen, Ross. We laugh when Phoebe says take off your shirt and tell us all about it.

4.  Turkeys Away  WKRP in Cincinnati  An oldie but a goodie . Mr. Carlson gets a brilliant idea for a Thanksgiving publicity stunt. There is only one problem, he hires a helicopter to drop live turkeys from the sky.  Then he learns an important lesson , that turkeys can’t fly and a suburban mall in Cincinnati has dead turkeys splattered all over the parking lot. Look this one up , you will laugh your butt off.

3.  Queens for a Day  Will and Grace   It is always a nightmare when you meet the in laws, and this is especially the case for Will. The WASPy queen meets Vince’s catholic family . His mother hates him, Vince whines about his father’s feelings, Grace and Karen seduce Vince’s fifteen year old nephew and Vince’s sis wants to come out as a lesbian.  Chock full of guest stars like Robert Costanza (Joey’s dad on Friends) and Jamie Lyn Sigler  of The Sopranos. (Meadow)

2. TOW Ross Gets High  Monica and Chandler are now a couple to everyone but Jack and Judy. Monica doesn’t want her parents to know that they are together because for some reason, they hate Chandler. Joey’s hot roommate Janine invites Joey and Ross to their dancer thanksgiving consisting of drinking and hot dancer girls taking off their clothes.  Rachel decides to finally cook something and the trifle is part shepherd’s pie and trifle -beef and peas and jam and whipped cream.  Phoebe has dirty fantasies about Jack Geller and the secret comes out when the siblings start telling secrets , they think that Chandler got their precious baby high in college-Ross. Everyone hates the trifle except for Joey.

and the number one Thanksgiving episode is  Cheers Orphans Thanksgiving. Diane has gone all over bragging how her professor always has a special dinner and invites only his best students. Then she comes in Pilgrim garb and finds out she is not eating the meal, but serving it.  Carla invites the gang to her house and Diane shows up. Naturally the fun starts with a food fight and Diane’s war cry of “Sam Malone! Kiss your butt good bye.”  Norm’s wife shows up and then she sees the clowns her husband spends all of his time with as she looks at them with pie all over her face.
