Everybody Hates Thanksgiving was the eighth episode of the second season of Everybody Hates Chris. It was the 30th episode overall of Everybody Hates Chris.
SHORT SUMMARY: Guest star Wayne Brady plays Julius' succesful younger brother. Julius tries to impress him with the perfect Thanksgiving dinner, but things don't go smoothly.
FULL RECAP: Julius took over thanksgiving for this years family event. After an early wake-up, the family falls asleep, the only problem is that the Mac and Cheese is left in the oven. 3 hours later Chris (who was making the Mac and Cheese) smells it burning and tries to get it out. It gets burnt and starts a bad day. While Julius is getting mad, his younger brother is trying to entertaining the family. This only gets Julius madder. To continue the madness, the turkey wont fit in the oven. Julius gives up on the dinner as the store owner makes the mac and cheese and it seems to work out and the family loves the dinner. Chris does his homework and asks the family what they're thankful for. Everything ends fine, other than the fact that Chris gets every kid in his class and a Native American when he says that he's glad that he wasn't a Native American that got run out of his country by the white man.
Julius: Did Martin Luther King, Jr. take a break? Did Moses take a break? Did Gandhi take a break?
Narrator: He took a break from eatin'!
Narrator: My mac 'n cheese looked so good, Gandhi would've snuck himself a plate.
Kill Moves: Is that burnt mac 'n cheese?
Julius: Yeah. Why?
Kill Moves: It's just the way I like it!
Narrator: He wants that blackaroni, 'cause he's on that crackaroni.
Chris: [speaking in front of the class] To me, Thanksgiving means family and togetherness. Thanksgiving came about when the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock. The Indians greeted them, provided them shelter, taught them how to grow corn and how to prepare for the winter, and went on to cook one of the greatest meals the pilgrims ever ate. And in their appreciation for showing them how to prosper and survive in this brave new world, the pilgrims killed the Indians and created a holiday in their honor. So, on this Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for my family, my friends, but most importantly, I'm thankful that I'm not a Native American.
