Episode Recap

Jamie's longtime friend and football star "Icepick" comes to the hotel to hang out with him for Thanksgiving. Everyone is excited to have him there. While he shows everyone his new endzone dance, his knee starts to hurt. Later Jamie goes up to Icepick''s room and sees on the news that Icepick has been cut from his football team because of his recurring knee injury.

Upset over the news, Icepick goes out of the window onto the ledge and contemplates jumping "Life ain't worth living being cut from football," he says. Everyone takes their shot at trying to talk Icepick out of jumping.

Jamie is afraid of heights, but he goes out on the ledge to talk to Icepick. Jamie tries reverse psychology and tells Icepick that he'll jump with him if he does. Jamie tells him that he cares about him and Icepick gets off the ledge.
