Mike heads over to his dad’s house to invite him over for Thanksgiving. He dreads this ritual, as his dad always politely declines the invitation saying he doesn’t want to impose. It always gets to the point where Mike must beg him to come. But it’s the one thing Frankie asked him to do. So Mike invites his dad, but he doesn’t beg.
Mr. Ehlert announces the dealership will be open on Thanksgiving. Frankie must work the evening shift which means they’ll just eat early and she’ll have to meet Mike and the kids at the mall at midnight. Then Frankie finds out the Black Friday sales actually start at six on Thanksgiving night. This coupled with the fact that she promised to take Brick to the corn maze throws off her whole schedule. They’re pretty much going to be eating dinner at dawn.
