* ''Series/TheWestWing'' episode "Shibboleth" laid on Thanksgiving very thickly in multiple plot threads that include both uses of this trope: President Bartlet invokes the original Thanksgiving as justification for freeing Chinese Christians fleeing persecution, and invokes the familial side of modern observance when he gives his body man Charlie (who has no parents) a priceless family heirloom originally made by Paul Revere as a gesture metaphorically adopting Charlie into his family.
** Also parodied early in the episode, when Sam and Toby are working on the President's Thanksgiving proclamation:
-->'''Sam:''' Well, over three and a half centuries ago, strengthened by faith and bound by a common desire for liberty, a small band of Pilgrims sought out a place in the New World where they could worship according to their own beliefs...and solve crimes.
-->'''Toby:''' Sam...

-->'''Toby:''' Read the thing.
-->'''Sam:''' By day, they churn butter and worship according to their own beliefs, and by night, they solve crimes.

** "Toikey TV" (2007) has Strong Bad and the Cheat relaxing after Thanksgiving dinner, trying to find something to watch on TV besides "the 2007 Falling Asleep On The Couch Watching Football Bowl".

You know you want to beat each other up over some stupid kids' toy!"
