Matt and PC walk into the kitchen, where Annie tells them that they're just in time. "PLEASE, Annie," says PC, "no more Thanksgiving crafts!" But Annie isn't trying to get them to do crafts; she has something planned for the whole family to do, because, as she cries, "Thanksgiving is all about family, RIIIIIGHT?" By now, everyone is hanging out in the CamKitchen, including Mac and Martin and excluding Kevin and Lucy. Matt tells Annie that they are her family and she can always count on them. "We love you Annie," says PC totally unconvincingly, "and we're here for you. Right now, as a matter of fact." Matt invites everyone out to pizza and a movie, but Annie says she has too much to do, even though, AGAIN, Thanksgiving isn't for another WEEK. Annie says she can spend plenty of time with them next week, when they're home for Thanksgiving. Matt says that, "for the last time," they can't be there. So he'll take everyone else out, and then he and PC will go back to New York tomorrow and Annie can think of how she wasted a weekend she could have spent with them because their trip didn't fit in with her OCD plans.
Annie asks Matt to "consider" coming home for Thanksgiving, which will be really fun since everyone's going to be there. "Mom, wake up," says Matt, and apparently someone on the writing staff loves Barry Watson since he's getting the best lines today. Matt says that not everyone is going to be around for Thanksgiving and it will probably suck. RevCam steps up and tells Annie that Simon won't be there. Neither will Mary, Carlos, and Charles Miguel. Or, possibly Ruthie. Or Martin. Annie reacts with a crazy laugh, followed by a bizarre point and nod. RevCam says that they'll spend the holiday with Lucy, Kevin, and SamVid, and that's enough. At this point, Lucy bursts in, followed by Kevin, and asks why the hell Annie is making Thanksgiving dinner when Lucy wants to do it, and she figured Annie knew she wanted to do it even though Lucy and Annie had no previous communication about this. A silence falls over the kitchen as Annie's eyes moisten. "What's going on?" asks Lucy, perceptive about five minutes too late. Everyone begs Annie to say something, even, most pitifully, the twins, who have to watch their mother's nervous breakdown. "You are not my family," Annie says, like, THE FUCK?!?!?! Unless she was telling Ruthie the truth about her heritage in a particularly cruel manner, there is NO EXCUSE for this. Those twins are FIVE YEARS OLD and their mother just told them that they are not her family. Sam won't have to worry about the lifelong trauma this will induce, since he's deaf, but what of Vid? Poor Vid, who was just beginning to learn how to act.
