Chieftain. Patrick mopes that Annie's really mad at him. Buzz's brilliant advice is that Patrick should give her a present, in a box, wrapped with a bow. Jerome crabs, "I miss the women." Ben tells him, "We're not so bad," and Jerome bitchily reminds him that Ben's cast him out for Thanksgiving. At that, Theresa rolls up and asks Patrick what time dinner starts at the Inn. Patrick excitedly tells her about his big family dinner, and Ben tells Theresa that she always has a seat at the orphans' Thanksgiving. Jack's like, "Oh, so NOW you're doing it?" Ben tries to play it off like it's no big deal. Jerome just cares that there is turkey in his future, and not in roll form.
New York. Marin walks by a newsstand and gets excited to see that the New Yorker issue with her story in it is still for sale, but the thrill is short-lived as the next issue unceremoniously gets slotted in front of it. She turns to see a display of electric fans in a nearby store window (fans...in November...IN NEW YORK), and flashes back to the first time she had sex with Jack during the heat wave. Bumping into a "typical" "rude" TV New Yorker snaps her out of it.
