The next day, Teresa prepares for her "Friendsgiving" celebration. As she cooks, she is sad that her brother hasn't reached out to her since she wrote the letter. She wonders if they'll ever get back to where they were before Christening-gate 2010. As the girls get the table ready, she tries to teach them that Thanksgiving isn't about materialism and perfection as much as it is about family and friends. Of which she barely has any, including her husband, who is sleeping upstairs instead of helping her get ready.
Meanwhile, Melissa's sisters arrive to help her prepare her celebration. The guys drink shots and snooze as they women cook in their mink aprons (yeah, you heard me right). Kathy arrives a little later, ceremoniously laying out her miniature pies, cannolis, three kinds of soup, and various other desserts. Everyone is well impressed with her spread. As the cooking gets underway, Joe tells Melissa to join him outside in one minute for a great surprise. Instead of a puppy or diamonds, however, she finds a mechanical bull in the front yard. As you'd expect, Rich is on that shit like white on rice. Even Kathy takes a turn, albeit for about 10 seconds. Melissa goes next, and she and Joe make it more sexual than necessary... like always. Good thing no one has put down those miniature pies yet because they'd be coming right back up.
Back at the Giudice mansion, the Manzos arrive with pignoli cookies, followed by Kim D. and the Lauritas, bearing sprinkle cookies. The wine and champagne start flowing as Jacqueline interviews that she knows it's been a tough year for Teresa and her family. As they drink, Teresa tearfully acknowledges that Caroline and Jacqueline have been there for her more than her family. She calls Caroline the older sister she never had. Caroline adds "hotter" to that list to lighten the mood. It doesn't work, and Teresa continues to well up as they all toast to a good "Friendsgiving."
