In the picture Mrs. Drysdale is planning to have taken, one shot is of the Native Americans giving the Thanksgiving turkey to the Pilgrims. Some claim there was no turkey at the first Thanksgiving; however, in William Bradford's first-hand narrative Of Plymouth Plantation, he says of the first Thanksgiving that "...there was a great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many, besides venison, etc."
Elly has a strong love for animals, as she shows in her episode especially this one by trying to save the Thanksgiving turkey. So, why does she still eat meat? She befriends most of the animal types which she eats.
(Granny asks to borrow Duke)
Jed: Well sure Granny. What fer?
Granny: The turkey got away. And I want Old Duke to sniff out his trail.
Jed: Oh, you don't need Old Duke, Granny.
Granny: Yes I do Jed. My nose ain't what it used to be.
(Mrs. Drysdale is trying to communicate with the two Native Americans for her picture)
Mrs. Drysdale: Uh, me grateful to Red Brother. (Looks at the two men who don't respond) Milburn, hurry! (goes back inside the house)
Indian 2: What was she talking about?
Indian 1: As near as I can figure, she's got a brother who's a Communist.
This episode is included in the 3 DVD compilation The Christmas Collection, by St. Clair Vision.
