    All in all, I liked the episode. I just did not understand why Lisa was so angry with Malik. Only because he doesn't hate her mother? Then, Malik is right, it really is immature.


    I don't know if I like Tessas mother. I hope we'll see some more of her, get to know her better.


    And, what is a wishbone? What does it do?

    The wishbone refers to the bone that lies between the breast and neck of the turkey. You let it dry and then while you and someone else is holding a side, you each make a wish & pull the bone apart. The person left with the longest side gets his wish granted. Did this all the time at Thanksgiving as a child.

    Ah, thank you. I didn't know that custom but it sounds funny. ^^

    I like how the writers didn't go straight to that, angry teen mad with their estranged parent and instead made her automatically accepting, that was different.
