It's Thanksgiving, and Paul and Jamie are hosting a big dinner for both their families. Though Paul is confident that they are covered, Jamie isn't so sure. First, Lisa calls to remind her she is a vegetarian, so Jamie sends Paul to the store for something to feed her. And when Paul's mom and dad arrive early, Jamie is surprised to find that Sylvia not only brought food, but has reservations about eating buffet style and wonders why there are no marshmallows in the sweet potato mousse. When her family arrives with more food, too, Jamie begins to see all her plans for dinner quickly going down the drain. She and Paul are then forced to make another trip to the store, where they realize that their plans for the meal are slipping out of their control. And when they return home to find their buffet has been dismantled, they decide to do something about it. But, as they are lecturing their parents about wanting to do dinner their way, Murray takes care of the turkey all by himself. As Paul sneaks away to find another turkey, Jamie tries to keep their guests distracted until he returns. But the first replacement bird mysteriously disappears from the hallway, and then Jamie throws the second out the window so as not to reveal their secret. Although Ira and Fran volunteer to get the next one, it too ends up on the street below. Finally, after Paul and Jamie go out for another, they return to find everyone ready to eat, but their problems far from over.
