Bobby hopes one Thanksgiving will make up for all the white man's sins
Gribbles, the Boomhauers and Bill come over for a Thanksgiving turkey fry and Hank hopes that Bobby will enjoy it as much as Hank enjoyed his first turkey fry. Hank even bestows the electric carving knife on an honored Bobby. However, when John Redcorn speaks to Bobby and Joseph's class about the raping of the Native Americans' land by the white man, Bobby has a change of heart regarding the holiday.
Bobby, convinced that his stupid race has ruined the lives of all Native Americans, plans a protest feast called Thanks-taking. He refuses to carve the turkey because "it's basted in the blood of the innocents." Unfortunately, his research has led him to believe the Indians were cannibals so his well-intentioned speech is totally offensive. John Redcorn is already upset over not being close to Joseph, his biological son, and so he runs off.
Later, Dale brings John some leftovers but fears he might be eaten and hides in the bathroom. Hank, Joseph and Bobby "rescue" Dale and John realizes that he and Joseph could at least be friends. Having been awarded 12 acres of land in his government lawsuit, John gives the land to Dale - knowing it will eventually go to Joseph.In the meantime, Luanne tells Peggy that everyone hates her annual Boggle tournament, so Peggy invents a new game called "Spin the Choice."
