It is Thanksgiving, but the Solomons have no idea what is going on, and think that the world is ending, because everybody is either leaving town hurriedly or buying large amounts of food. Once they realize what is really going on, they invite Mary, Mrs. Dubcek and Mrs. Dubcek's daughter Vicki (first appearance by Jan Hooks) to eat dinner with them, but Dick ends up falling out with Tommy, who storms off. Meanwhile, it becomes clear that there is a spark between Harry and Vicki, who end up having sex on Mrs. Dubcek's kitchen table.
