Thanksgiving finds the Heck-household hoarding secrets. Sue and Frankie try to hide Frankie’s outlandish behavior at a pre-Thanksgiving sale, while Axl must find a way to inform his parents that he dropped three of his four classes. Simultaneously, Grandpa Tag (Jerry Van Dyke) tries to persuade Grandma Pat (Marsha Mason) not to take a cruise, after squandering away their money playing online poker. All of these revelations come to head during Thanksgiving dinner, during which Frankie’s boss, Dr. Goodwin (Jack McBrayer) and Rusty’s wife, Marlene (Mary Birdsong) and kids are thrown into the chaos. Elsewhere, Brick is determined to have Lime-green Jell-O for dessert.
