Flashback to Jacks house on Thanksgiving Day. Rochester sings, if you can call it that, as he does some house cleaning. Jack has some set backs as he gets ready to go to Marys for dinner. Mary phones in with a request for Jack to bring some things. I hope he won’t embarrass himself in front of others on the party line.
Mr Kitzel stops by for a visit to tell about his plans for his live turkey. As Jack rushes out, a radio is turned on for the closing chorus of Phil’s song, That’s What I Like About the South.
At Marry’s house, she, Phil, Dennis and Don tease each other. Dennis tells a story about his mom, and milking cows. Phil seems to be complimentary towards Marys maid, Pauline.
Jack shows up to get teased about wearing his old tuxedo. Then Jack deals with Frank Nelson at the front door, he is supposed to be the new butler. Dennis sings, I’m Sending You a Big Bouquet of Roses.
Dinner is served, the gang forms a Conga Line, then Jack gets himself into some trouble, and tries to recover from a flubbed line. As the finishing touches for dinner is being made, the Sportsmen, and the gang sing Turkey in the Straw.
As Frank Nelson serves dinner, Jack gets more teasing about his tux. Then a few words of Thanks are offered by Jack.
An argument breaks out between Don and Jack about the Pilgrims. Who is right? Who will get the last word? Can Jack keep his composure?
