  • The Solomons' find out what Thanksgiving is, so Dick invites Mary, Mrs Dubcek and her daughter Vicki to their first Thanksgiving dinner on Earth. Also, Tommy runs away after a argument with Dick.moreless

    All hell seems to break loose whenever the Solomons' discover something new, and with Thanksgiving it is no different.



    At first, they think the world is going to end, so Dick tries to go and warn Mary, but ends up talking to a janitor in their office who tells them about Thanksgiving. Dick then tells the others, before inviting a few people to come along to the meal.



    Before they arrive, however, Tommy runs away when Dick tries to make him wear a Pilgrim's costume that Vicki Dubcek used to wear - while she garners the attention of Harry.



    Sally - along with Mary and Mrs Dubcek - cook the dinner, which begins without Tommy, who's run down to a bar and plays a couple of guys at pool. A great scene between Dick and Harry then takes place when they are full from the meal.



    Arguments then follow in certain scenes, Harry and Vicki have a memorable scene that includes the use of a cooked turkey, before Dick realises that arguments are part of Thanksgiving, so giving him the satisfaction of a human Thanksgiving celebration.



    Dick and Tommy then patch things up to end the episode, while Harry and Vicki talk about how weird their other family members are.
