Speechless–Season 1, Episode 7 (T-H-A-Thanksgiving)

The premise of this episode is summed up perfectly by a speech that Maya makes to her brother-in-law, Billy:

“We’re so focused on the fact that you don’t understand our problems, we didn’t even consider that you might actually have problems of your own.”

I’ve always felt that each Speechless episode focuses on one of many aspects of a family with a special needs child. Almost like the family and the show is an onion and each episode peels back a layer of their lives. Interestingly and some would say inevitably, this episode pointed out the fact that even though Maya, Jimmy and co. constantly have problems, they aren’t the only ones in the world that do.
