She has 2 bags of groceries. Um, two bags for Thanksgiving. Again, I call BS. I- EASILY have 8 bags minimum. Carrie’s Dad breaks the news there is a storm in Florida and the grandparents won’t be able to visit for Thanksgiving. But he also has GREAT news- Dad has invited Harlan and George to come for Thanksgiving dinner. Uh-oh, Carrie is not ready for George to see “Suburban Carrie.” (Trust me, honey- he already knows you are hick because you never heard the words “couture” or “sous chef.” ) Carrie is panicked to cook for so many people, especially George, Dad and The Dorrit aren’t too happy about the idea either and suggest they get take-out instead. Cool maybe they can order a Red Rider BB gun too. Carrie insists she can cook for everyone- she’ll just follow Mom’s recipes. No big deal. The Dorrit (she’s back!!), wisely, says “I don’t want to eat Carrie’s cooking. I want to live!!!” But… Carrie is determined to pull this off.
Crap! I have to make this shit myself?!?!
On Thanksgiving, Carrie rushes around her room putting away all of the things George would think is stupid- her Hello Kitty collection and her stuffed animal!! Carrie is bummed that she can’t hide The Dorrit. Carrie puts away an autographed photo of Shaun Cassidy.
Oh! Look who is finally back from Battle of the Network Stars???
Again, I call BS. The height of Shaun Cassidy’s popularity was 1978- I was 8. This is supposed to be 1983- Shaun Cassidy was as has-been by then. If the picture was of Ralph Maccio or C. Thomas Howell, I could get on board, but sorry, nope.
Mags, dressed like Princess Margaret, leaves her house to go over to Walt’s for Thanksgiving.
Hey Baby, can I stuff your turkey?
She runs into her pal The Cop, who was invited over to Mags’s house for Thanksgiving. The cop laughs at her because she looks ridiculous, but Mags tells him she is “going to my boyfriends and they dress for dinner.”
Putting away the historically inaccurate photograph has put Carrie behind schedule and she really needs to start this dinner. The Dorrit informs her she is already behind. Carrie goes to Mom’s recipe box to retrieve Mom’s “Perfect Turkey” recipe and finds it to be all smudged, nor can she find any of Mom’s cookbooks.
Whoops! Looks like The Dorrit splashed a little bong water on Mom’s recipes
Carrie is fooked and we are lead to believe The Dorrit is behind all of this. I love The Dorrit.
It’s Mighty Mouse to the rescue. Mouse has, apparently, gone to the 8:30am seating at the Country Club because she is completely available to Carrie as of noon.
Mouse is here with every single cookbook from the library
