Lobsters don't run.
Okay? Okay.
I want a good turkey this year.
I want it fresh, not frozen, with all that chemical and junk on the inside.
Chemical? You don't know that.
This is like a crack house for birds.
Where are we even at? It should be perfect this year.
Okay? You know, I wasn't really there those other years.
And even when I was there, it was like I wasn't really there.
No, I know.
I get it.

Took another shift.
Oh, See-See, I couldn't.
The turkeys, they were looking at me.
And I looked back at them I do not understand why you're making such a big deal out of this.
I'll just pick up a free range turkey from the market.
I know, but I just want today to be perfect.
Cameron, all I need is you here.
All right.
Love you.
What? Tur You want to impress her? Get some culture in your life, and make her a Turducken.
De-boned turkey, you stuff it with a de-boned chicken, and then, you stuff that with a de-boned duck.

Aye, monsieur! That's what we do.
That sounds like chicken incest, man.
What do you mean? That's Cajun, man.
Well, well, well.
You guys look bright, breezy and thankful this morning.
They broke into the 25-year-old Scotch and talked medicine all night.
I am heartbroken that I missed that.

And I miss my family.
And I'd rather be with them than here.
And flirting with you is just Yeah, look, Rabbit.
You live alone.
You're going to die alone.

Too heavy? Not exactly cheery.
Look, like I said.
I'm tired.
I'm sorry.
Happy Thanksgiving Day.
Now, you just look desperate.
Let's go.
Who wants to give him a bath? I've got one for you, Gina.
What's his DBI? I would say about a seven.
That's being generous.
Yeah, here you go, guys.
He's all yours.
Thank you, Nancy.
Embrace it.
What's DBI? "Dirtbag Index.
" It's the number of tattoos, divided by the number of missing teeth added to the estimated number of days without a bath.
That's gross.
You've got to love the nurses, hey? Hey.
Do not put that in your report.
You'll get written up.
All right.
Come on.
What's up, Rabbit? Hey.
You okay? Just peachy.
Gobble, gobble.
Why? So, what are doing Hey, what are you Thanksgiving.
I'm at my dad's.
Football game.
Lyndon, Troy and Peter drinking too much.
Discussing the New England Journal of Medicine.
That happened last night, so I hear.
But Peter isn't even coming home this year.
But I bet you've still got that video of your granddad's gallbladder.
Please, no.
Not this year.
You remember a lot, huh? I try to forget.
Sounds like you know the drill.
What about you? You know me.
I've always got options.
But you're going to blow them all off and go and have shots at Lefty O'Douls and some turkey buffet.
If I don't see you, happy Turkey Day.
You, too.
Middle seats.
Three hours from now.
All right.
Oakland Airport.
Okay, I got it.
I got it.
Hour before it takes off.

Happy T Day.
Dude, if you don't want to go home, you don't have to go home.
But eventually, you're going to have to tell them.
No, I'm not.
I don't have to.
Trust me.
I'm protecting them.
Okay? This is the humanitarian way to go about this, okay? So, you're going to live a lie? Trust me.
That ain't the way to go.
Eventually, it's going to catch up to you.
Your family is going to figure it out.
It's going to eat you up on the inside.
It's going to be like a lose-lose situation.
Those are my choices? I guess I'll lose, then, because, trust me, it is better than sending my parents into cardiac arrest.
So, how are you going to tell them? I was thinking about texting them.
Facebook, maybe? No? Okay.
You know what? Maybe it will be a little something like this, huh? Tell me what you think.
Mom? Dad? I need to tell you guys that I like guys.
Like Elton John.
Full frontal, like Dude.
That's terrible.
That's whack.
Don't talk.
Don't tell me I'm whack.
I can come out of the closet better than that.
Oh, you can come You can come out of the closet better than me.

I love you, and I know you love me.
I'm your son.
I'll always be your son.
I have something I want to tell you.
I'm gay.
That was good.
Can I use that? Yeah, you can have it, man.
I mean, that's really good.
I'm not going to use it, so You're not going to use it? Are you sure? Because that was a little too good.
It's kind of convincing.
Are you sure you're not Put your fingers over here.

You're 10 years younger than me.
Seen this one before.
No, you haven't.
Not with me.
I'm not talking about the job.
You haven't met my brothers.
Oh, really? Hey, you guys.
What's up, guys? So, what's up? Oh, it's his leg? Yeah, look.
Sorry to call you guys.
He's being a wuss.
It's this leg here, right? Actually, I would say he has dislocated his kneecap.
Looks like he might have torn his ACL, probably the MCL and meniscus, too.
I'll go grab a board.
All right.
And some ice.
Oh, yeah.
Okay, I'm going to pop it back into place.
On three.
One, two God! Okay, okay, okay.
You're good.
Brotherly love, huh? I have two of them.
One older, one younger.
How about you? Yeah.
All older.
How can you even sit up straight and take solid foods? They weren't that bad.
Yeah, they were.
But I don't know.
You get older, and all that rivalry and testosterone just kind of mellows into Mild emotional abuse? Yeah, I guess.
Right now, they're sitting on the couch with their hands down their Steelers sweatpants, watching the game.
Drinking beer.
That is hot.
Did you speak to them this morning? No.
But I know they're there.
Just Okay.
So, this is how it goes, right? When you're a probie, all you want to do is get home for the holidays.
When you've worked this job for a few years You sign up to work them.
If I had to be with my family all day, I swear they'd have to send a rig out for me.
Or for them.
Yeah? Yeah.
That bad? I'm not joking.

I haven't talked to her in six years.
And I was heading to LA to mend a fence.
Well, hey, you still can.

So, I got his stuff for her when she wakes up.
Do you mind keeping an eye on her? Yeah.
I will.
Happy Thanksgiving.
You, too.

Help me grab some of these groceries.
Yeah? Yeah.
Really? Yeah, really, man.
You're family.
Man, stop looking at me like that.
So, I'm family, huh? So, I'm, like, the black sheep of the family.
White sheep of the family.
Gay white sheep.
I think I'm liking that.
My cousin saw you on the news, and she thinks you're super hot.
Yeah? And Mexican.
I'm not Mexican.
He's not Mexican.
So, what are you, then? I'm not going tonight.
I'll see you in a little bit, okay? All right.
Why aren't you going? It's not my thing.
What, did you find another hook up or something? That's not cool, man.
Viviana's going to be super pissed.
It's not that.
I just I don't know.
I don't feel like being in a crowd tonight.
You know, my family's not a crowd.
You know what I mean.
Not really.
But enjoy whatever you've got going on.
Happy Thanksgiving.
I'm very thankful for you guys.
Happy Thanksgiving, Rabbit.
Yo! Let's do it.
Where are you spending Thanksgiving? Um Happy Thanksgiving, folks.
Happy Thanksgiving, Captain.
Bye, Captain.
My parents are on their way up from LA.
Flights were all booked, so they had to drive.
That's good.
I thought you might want this.
Thank you.
You ever lose someone? I still haven't found someone.
I don't know if that's better or worse.
I'm sorry.
Will you stay with me for a while? Yeah.
God, thank you for my beautiful family and my guest.
Thank you for the hands that prepared this meal.
Oh, Tyler, we're just so glad that you're here.
Yeah? Yeah.
You know, that means a lot to me.
And to be here, sharing this with you guys.
You know, Boone family, I love you, and I know that you guys love me.
And I'm part of the family.
And I'll always be a part of the family.
And I just wanted you to know that I am gay.
That was a lot easier than I thought.
Could you get those potatoes over there? This is good.
Well, that's quite an adventure today.
I just can't stop thinking about all those people who couldn't make it home.
Marcy, I feel exactly the same way.
It's very hard.
I have this video of Shireen Razack's arthroscopic knee surgeries.
It's pretty doggone fascinating.
Sounds cool.
You know, I did my first knee this past week.
And why didn't you tell me? What was it, a meniscus? Actually, it was an ACL.
You did an ACL? Yes, sir.
How did it go? It was hard.
You know, like Billy Dugan says, "The hard is what makes it great.
" And I put blood on my face.
You totally bought it.
I'm so glad you're home, mija.
Me, too, Ma.
I made those tamales just for you.
The green chili and chicken? Mmm-hmm.
These are so good.
I figure we've got to work all night.
It's kind of slow.
Turkey sandwiches.
You want one? Yeah.
Yeah? That would be amazing.
Come on.
Rough night? Yeah.
What? Dad is going to kick your ass when he sees you.
Who do you think I stole it from? What? You are so smug.
When you think you know someone.
So, are you going to stick around? I'll probably stay the weekend.
You going to stay tonight? Nah.
It's weird, Peter not being here.
I guess he's starting up his own tradition.
What? This is a tradition? Yeah, I don't know if I remember this right, or if I made it up, but Mom's stuffing, way better, right? Way better! What? Radishes? Mmm.
You think Dad and Marcy are happy? I don't know.
I mean, they're not miserable.
You remember how he was? Sure.
But I don't know.
It just seems like something's missing.
The older I get, the more it seems that way.
Yeah, I know how you feel.
Hey, Nance.
Rabbit? Hey.
So, uh So, Lefty's was closed, huh? No.
No, it wasn't closed.
I, um I just I don't know.
Nowhere seemed to feel like the right place.
So, you came here.
Yeah, I did, didn't I? Here I am.
You want to come inside? I'll make you some food.
No, no, no, no.
I feel weird.
That's kind of standard around here.
Come on.
The turkey is actually pretty good.
Come on.
What? What? What was your favorite show? Webster.
Why? It's funny.
Cheers me with your sandwich.
Happy Thanksgiving.
You, too.
Happy Thanksgiving.
So, here it is.
The stuffing is not great, but the turkey beats the hell out of Lefty's.
Happy Thanksgiving, Rabbit.
