Recap: Family Guy S 10 E 6 Thanksgiving
In this Thanksgiving Episode, Lois cooks up a big dinner and invites friends, family, and neighbors — but the dinner turns into a political discussion when Joe's estranged son, Kevin, returns from fighting in Iraq, revealing that he deserted his position in protest.


  • Shout-Out:
    • All in the Family: A remarkably similar situation a draft dodger who was living in Canada, to escape prosecution for ignoring his notice to report for duty and fight in the Vietnam War - was shown on a Holiday Episode, that being that series' 1976 Christmas Episode "The Draft Dodger." Like Family Guy's "Thanksgiving," the guest character is able to keep hold of his secret but as another character begins asking questions the truth slowly is revealed, leading to anger, disgust and an emotional argument about the merits of said war and questioning its morality, before a counterpoint is made and peace is (somewhat) restored.
