Added DiffLines:

* ImplausibleDeniability: Louise dramatically concludes that it was actually Tina and Gene working together to ruin the turkey, in an attempt to frame Louie as revenge for her slowly stealing their allowances over the past five years. Then Tina and Gene reveal that they didn't know about that. Louise immediately retracts her accusation and assures them that she hasn't been doing that. The two sigh in relief.

Added DiffLines:

* DreadedKidsTable: Tina wants to sit at the adult table with the adults for Thanksgiving dinner, instead of at the kids' table with Gene and Louise. Despite her efforts to act more mature, Bob still refuses to let her eat at the adult table. When someone has been putting turkeys in the toilet, Tina is suspected of doing so as revenge for being denied her chance to eat at the adult table. While she didn't do it, she was indirectly responsible for Bob putting turkeys in the toilet, due to Bob's allergy medication making him sleepwalk and have dreams about potty-training Tina.

Added DiffLines:

* BottleEpisode: Aside from a few brief scenes, the entire episode takes place within the Belcher residence.

* NoSympathy: Poor Bob really doesn't get much help from the rest of the family when his turkeys keep ending up in the toilet, nor do they really take his concerns very seriously. The only reason Louise tried to figure out who did it was because everyone thought she was the culprit.
* NotMeThisTime: Louise is rather offended everyone automatically believes she put the turkeys in the toilet.
* TheReveal: It turns out ''Bob'' has been putting the turkeys in the toilets. The allergy medication he's been taking because of Gayle's cats made him sleepwalk while he was dreaming about helping Tina potty train.
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Had Gayle not brought all her cats with her (including one she outright stole) to the apartment, Bob wouldn't have been taking the allergy medication that made him sleepwalk.

Added DiffLines:

There's a Thanksgiving saboteur in the house. And Bob has to find out who before another turkey winds up in the toilet.
