Dana Whitaker: I’ve named this Thanksgiving. I’m calling it “The Thanksgiving of Mom’s Disapproval.” Included on the 2-record set are the hit songs “Why Aren’t You Married?” And “Sports Is No Place for an Educated Woman” and “Didn’t Anyone Ever Tell You How to Cook a Turkey?”
— Sports Night 1×8, “Thespis”
The Maternal Unit would never say those things, but this is one of Trav’s and my favorite episodes of Sports Night and we’re hosting our first Thanksgiving dinner today, so it seemed appropriate.
No one ever told me how to cook a turkey, after all. And this year I just informed Trav he was in charge of the turkey-cooking and to get on that. But mostly mostly I’m just really happy, and thankful, that we’re spending the holiday together, with people we love, with each other, with the terrible kittens, and that all of you out there are reading this. I’m thankful for you guys, too.
And the turkey emoji. The turkey emoji is great, you guys.
