  • non-fat thanksgiving you know what that means

    9.1
    this has to be one of the funniest episodes Everybody Loves Raymond has released. debra and marie are planning to have a non-fat thanksgiving so frank, ray, and robert go crazy. the turkey is going to be tofu so they all hate it. the funniest part in the whole episode is when they all try to eat the turkey. they all choke on it but robert is the funniest because he sits there banging on the table trying to swallow it. it is really funny and is one of the best there is. marie ends up eating the food from the restaurant.moreless

    Holiday episodes in sitcoms don't always work because they come of preachy, try to hard to be funny, or are just too darn sappy. But this is one of the ones that actually work. Might not be as hugely impacting as the Friend's Thanksgiving episodes but is no doubt funny and has a heart. The most hillarious moment was just seeing each of the family members from Frank, Robert, Ray to Debra all taking a bite out of the tofu turkey. They act as if they just chew and swallowed poison down their throat, all of them have their different silent reactions to it. Comic gold.moreless

    Another one of my personal favorites. This episode is hilarious:

    Marie and Frank get some test results back they find out that they're not as healthy as they thought. They start eating healthy, even for Thanksgiving dinner. Marie makes a tofu turkey. So Ray orders a traditional Thanksgiving dinner from a restaurant, it is sent over to Frank and Marie's house. Later Ray catches Marie in the kitchen eating the real Thanksgiving dinner.moreless
