Recap / Big City Greens S 1 E 20

Go To

On Thanksgiving, the Greens attempt to purchase a new TV but face a crowd of angry hoarders; Tilly becomes infatuated with next door neighbor Mr. Gregorian's cat Anoush, but he refuses to allow any contact between them.

Big Deal:

  • An Aesop: Thanksgiving isn't about what you want and what you have, it's about who you spend it with.
  • Retail Riot: Inside the store, shoppers are fighting each other tooth and nail for merchandise, the poor clerks unable to keep the peace. (One poor soul has been tied to a ceiling fan.) The manager orchestrates the chaos from his office; since he has to work during Thanksgiving, he aims to ruin everyone else's holiday as well.
