    • QUOTES (7)

      • (Tim and Randy see Benny at the soup kitchen)
        Randy: Dad, he's eating the eel pie!
        Tim: Now he's REALLY gonna feel terrible.

      • (Tim pulls his favorite sweater out of the box of clothes)
        Tim: (to Jill) Didn't work last year. It's not gonna work this year.

      • Mark: Hey, this is Dad's favorite sweater. Why are you giving it away?
        (Mark holds up a weird-looking brown sweater)
        Jill: That's why I'm giving it away.
        Brad: Well, haven't the needy suffered enough?

      • (in Tim's dream, he is a wooden doll and Al is a snowman)
        Al: We have something very special to show you today. Say hello to the new Binford 6100 Toolapalooza. It saws. It sands. It welds. It grinds. It does absolutely everything.
        Tim: Not everything, Al. Does it feed the hungry? Does it clothe the naked? Does it heal the sick?
        Al: I don't know. I haven't tried all the attachments.

      • (Tim is dreaming that he and his family are wooden dolls)
        Tim: Boys, go get your rooms and put them in the box.
        Mark: But where are we going to live?
        Tim: You, you, you. You people have got to stop thinking about yourselves.
        Jill: Tim, you've changed. You're caring. Giving. You're... loving. And you've got a termite coming out of your ear.
        Tim: Have a little compassion. Even the lowliest creature needs a friend.

      • Benny: Care for an imitation crab puff?
        Marty: Benny, I'm allergic. I get imitation hives.

      • Jill: I'm so glad our family values are rubbing off on you.
        Randy: What do you mean?
        Jill: Well your father and I have always taught you that holidays are about sharing and putting other people first.
        Tim: Honey, look what we got. The last turkey they had. The biggest one. It's all mine, mine, mine!

    • NOTES (3)

      • This is the third Thanksgiving episode in the series.

      • According to the DVD write-up by the producers, the stop-motion animation sequences were suppose to be a tribute to the 1964 "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" classic by Rankin Bass Productions. In fact, the episode, just before the scene with the stop-motion animation, has a scene from the Rankin Bass Production "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town".

      • Parts of this episode are animated.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Tim: I'm gonna intimidate Doc Johnson.
        Marty: What are you gonna do, stick a reindeer head in his bed?

        In a famous scene from the classic Mafia movie The Godfather, a movie producer who offends Don Corleone wakes up to find the severed head of his favorite horse in his bed.

      • The episode title is an obvious reference to the classic Clint Eastwood western The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
