S01xE08 – It’s the Weaver’s first Thanksgiving in their new home, and the plan is to enjoy it without any parents or neighbors to ruin it. That goes out the window very quickly when Marty gets suckered into inviting his parents, and Debbie inviting the Bird-Kersee’s. Max has decided they are going to have a deep fried turkey this year, and Debbie and Marty are game. When the parents arrive, it’s nothing but insults toward both Debbie and Marty. When the Bird-Kersee’s attend, Jackie is upset because she wants to spend the holiday with her sisters, but they have been exiled because they tried to overthrow Larry. Reggie and Dick go behind Larry’s back and direct orders and get Jackie’s sisters released from custody and they attend dinner at the Weaver’s as well. Larry is at first furious, but he finally comes around. And Jackie’s sisters are able to stay in the neighborhood again. Marty has it out with his dad, but they end up making up, and Marty’s mother has a talk with Dick who tells her she needs to not be so hard on Debbie, and actually listens. She compliments the turkey, which is actually horrible, but the night ends well.
Best of the episode: Jackie’s sisters, one is in the body form of a man which is pretty funny.
Worst of the episode: Marty’s parents.
Where this episode leaves us: Jackie’s sisters are no longer in exile, but they don’t seem to want to stop trying to overthrow Larry either. This could be interesting in the future.
Apologies for the brief recap, life got in the way, and I will do better next week. Promise.
