This episode kicks off with establishing why this episode was given its title.

This episode is this season’s Thanksgiving episode. The episode kicks off similarly to the previous Thanksgiving episodes, with Maya trying to get out of cooking and Jimmy’s brother, Billy arriving.

The episode kicks off with Maya’s birthday and the kids giving her crappy thoughtless gifts with the word “Mom” printed on them in some way.
