The show opens in the Cohen's kitchen. Kirsten is working on Thanksgiving dinner when Seth walks in and groans. Seth begs her not to cook, but Kirsten says she wants to make this a special thanksgiving because it is Ryans first one with them. Seth says this is his favorite holiday, and she knows that he loves eating all the delicious food that comes with it, so she cant deny him that by cooking. Seth begs his mom not to ruin the food. Kirsten says she wont ruin the dinner, and they can all work on the dinner as a family if hed like. Kirsten takes the turkey out and doesnt know what to do with it. Sandy and Ryan show up, and they end up chipping in to help, Sandy does the turkey, Ryan does the cranberries, Seth chops the veggies, and Kirsten is left without a job! The phone rings, so she decides to answer it because she can still do that. The phone call is for Ryan, and it is Trey calling from prison. Ryan takes it in the other room, and Kirsten wonders what he is calling about. She says sometimes she forgets Ryan has a family of his own.

Ryan talks to Trey, and Trey asks him for a favor. Trey wants Ryan to come out and see him. Ryan doesnt know because it is Thanksgiving, but he eventually agrees to come out to the prison to see him. Ryan goes back into the kitchen, and he tells the others that his brother wants him to come see him because he doesnt want to be alone on the holiday. Kirsten asks if he is going? Ryan says it is only an hour away, so he could be there and back before dinner. Sandy tells him that it is great that hes going to see his brother on Thanksgiving.

Seth continues to work on the dinner and Ryan is helping him. Seth tells Ryan that he should be heading out, but Ryan says he has to finish up what he's doing. Ryan is stalling, and finally says Trey is going to want something from him. Seth says maybe not, but Ryan knows he will want something. Seth offers to go with him, saying legally they are like brothers now. Ryan thanks him but says he needs to keep Kirsten away from the food, and he has Anna coming over.

Out at the grill, Sandy is cooking and Kirsten tells him that she wants a job. Sandy finally tells her that he and the boys struck a deal to keep her away from the food. She is hurt, and Sandy says hes glad she wants to explore new things, but with company coming over tonight is not the night for her to try her hand at cooking. They soon end up discussing Rachel and Jimmy, who have been invited over in order to try and fix them up, but neither Rachel nor Jimmy know that! It seems neither Sandy nor Kirsten told Rachel and Jimmy about them being fixed up tonight. Kirsten soon begins ranting that Caleb is having Thanksgiving with Julie Cooper. Sandy says better with her than with them! 

At Jimmys, Marissa is telling her dad that she really doesnt want to go have dinner with mom and Caleb. Jimmy says it will only be for an hour. She says Caleb is creepy and weird. Jimmy says her mom is moving on, and so is he. She asks really? He says he is trying, but it might not seem like it considering he has no money, no job, and a ruined reputation. Jimmy tells her that he knows dinner will be weird, but her mom is still her mom.

Back at the Cohens, Ryan is getting ready to head out. He is hanging out with Seth in Seths room, and he asks Seth when he started wearing cologne? Seth says hes trying it out for today.

In the kitchen, Sandy and Kirsten say they suck, that was not smooth of them at all. Ryan has to leave, and Sandy gives him some money just in case of an emergency. Kirsten gives him the car keys, and a pie to take to Trey, which she tells him is store bought so he doesnt have to worry. Ryan leaves the house and heads to the car where Marissa is waiting in the passenger seat. She insists on going with him, and she says her mom said it was okay.
