Meatwad rolls over to Carl's with a message, which he is unable to remember due to his limited intelligence, so he roots around in his meat looking for the note he wrote as a reminder, pulling out his dolls Squirelly and a decapitated Jiggle Billy in the process. Eventually he finds the right note, which is a Thanksgiving invitation.
Since they aren't legally US citizens yet, the Aqua Teens have Thanksgiving a week past the actual holiday and invite Carl over to share in the festivities (though Carl decides to have dinner outside for the purpose of having witnesses). However, the dinner is interrupted when a mechanical turkey bursts into the home and grabs Carl by the throat (before tossing him out the window when Frylock asks the turkey to put him down). The turkey says his name is Turkitron and claims to be sent from the year 9595 to save the great-great-great-great grandfather of the turkey "Goblox," who is supposed to save the turkeys from the chicken overlords. Unfortunately, as Frylock points out, the turkey is already dead and about to be served as food.
Turkitron then tells a series of long tales about subjects ranging from the chicken overlords to the banning of taco pie to the claim that Carl is, in fact, a chicken mercenary sent from 9595 to stop the mission. All the while, Turkitron downs taco pie and wine, then attempts to find a time rift through which he will travel with the dinner turkey to a time before his killing. The turkey's mannerisms lead the ATHF to believe that this turkey is somehow related to the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future (which Turkitron admits he took the form of in his first appearance). They also find it odd that he carries all his belongings in a plastic bag, including socks, which Turkitron claims are laser-guided weapons.
When Turkitron passes out drunk from the wine (and after destroying the ATHF's television), Frylock ties up the turkey and explores his head with a blowtorch. After Frylock adjusts some crossed wires, Turkitron starts doing the Hustle. Master Shake enters with a newspaper (to show a pantyhose ad), but Frylock discovers an article that states that Turkitron is actually a defective toy called the "Hustlin' Tom Turkey" and that 5,000 were made. At that moment, a large number of turkey robots (perhaps the other 4,999 turkeys) show up at the ATHF's door. Shake directs them to Carl's house, who opens the door while munching on a turkey leg. When asked what it is, Carl begins to say, "This is your great-great-great...", and the turkeys take aim with their laser-guided socks. Just before the turkeys fire on Carl, he says, "Your mother!"
