[Lucy is in the kitchen mixing up something. She's got a smudge of orange across her cheek and she's wearing an apron. There's some poppy music on in the background. She swipes a finger through the batter in the bowl she's working with and sticks it in her mouth then looks up to the device, gives it a bit of an 'oops, caught red handed' look, takes her finger out of her mouth and smiles.]

Okay, so Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I don't know what sort of traditions everyone has and I know not all of us are from the United States but if you ask me, Thanksgiving is about getting together with your friends and your family and eating. A lot. That means I'm busy cooking. A lot.

If I know you, I've talked to you or you're all alone tomorrow and don't want to be, you're invited to my place for Thanksgiving. I promise there will be a lot of food. I'm even making vegetables without chicken broth, Stephen.

[Clueless Canadian kid, go.]

...Oh wait, yeah. Other Thanksgiving.

No clue. I have no idea what American Thanksgiving is actually celebrating. Or maybe they just enjoy squishing it right up next to Christmas.

Ooooh I never thought of the Christmas connection but it does make the New Year's Resolution to go to the gym more pressing since we're effectively eating our way through half of November and all of December.

Because you're cold as crap and you live in Igloos. No I don't care if that's supposed to be Eskimos. I'm making it include Canadians now.

Yes. Every single one of us lives in an igloo. I consider running water an act of witchcraft.

It's an excuse to eat and remember things you're grateful for. Like Christian Louboutin and Bear Bryant. Which okay people but you're allowed to be grateful for people.

O-okay. [What are these words that are coming out of your mouth, Lucy. Something about being grateful for religious bear people?] Yeah, that's kinda what real Thanksgiving is too.

Are you gonna make that corn stuff you told me about? With the cream?

Hey now! My thanksgiving is real too. [She is the best ever at explaining things. She will have to have this Bear Bryant discussion with him at some point because hello...he coaches God as far as Tide fans are concerned.]

I am absolutely making cream corn. Especially now that you asked about it. Also turkey, dressing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, homemade mac and cheese, sweet cornbread, pumpkin pie, cheesecake, pecan pie and red velvet cupcakes because those are never not appropriate.

Whoa... that's... a lot of stuff. [All of which sounds delicious. He is duly impressed.]

It's Thanksgiving. Everyone is supposed to over-eat. Plus I think I invited most of the City so it could be crowded.
