Thanksgiving, Politics & Etiquette | The Dilemma


– Thanksgiving is the only holiday where it’s socially acceptable to fall asleep at the table. (upbeat jazz music) – The topics that should be
off limit at Thanksgiving, I think, are politics. – Anything sexual. – And I guess, no, yeah, politics. – Butt holes. (woman laughing) – I feel like no matter what, we will talk about poop at Thanksgiving. – I’m never going to your Thanksgiving. – Come on!
– That’s horrifying. – It’ll be good. – Usually it’s the older ones,
too, it’s like, you know– – Wait, why did you point
to me when you said– – No, no, no, I just– – If a argument breaks
out during Thanksgiving, I definitely try to ignore it. – Don’t give them time of
day to make it get any worse. – Honestly, I’m probably the
one starting the argument. – In my family, if an argument breaks out, we’re all a bunch of problem-solvers, so I don’t need to do anything. It’s gonna be completely taken care of by all my aunts and uncles. – I would try to lighten the
mood up in a way that goes, okay, all right, I think
that we’ve screamed at each other enough now,
there’s pie to be had. – Let them fight it out. – [Interviewer] To the death? – To the death. – Oh, that’s such an issue. In my house there’s so much resentment with who cleans up after Thanksgiving. – Everyone should help clean up. And I say that the way that I’m saying it because I have been the host. – Well, it will be the host, but it should be everyone else. – My youngest, Nicole,
always seems to disappear right before clean up,
nobody could ever find her. – It should be the host,
the host should not be me. – I don’t know where
your teaspoon cups go, I don’t know where your, you know, your rinsin’ plate–
– There’s a dishwasher. You can put ’em
– No, no, no, no, no. – In the dishwasher. – I’m not here to investigate that. – I would say the persons there
who live there should do it. Because I never clean up. – Kids should eat with
everyone at Thanksgiving. I think it’s important to not separate that type of communion. – I remember it being fun for me to be sitting with the
kids instead of sitting with the grownups.
– Exactly, yup. – The grownup side was boring to me. – Yes. – I could spend time with my cousins. We were joking, and I just
liked being at the kid table. – At my house kids do
get a separate table. And when you turn 13 you get
to move to the adults table. So this’ll be my first
year at the adult table. Hopefully they don’t scream at me. – Microwave a turkey? You can’t microwave a turkey. – Yeah. – Like to reheat it? – No, to reheat it, or to
cook it for the day of? – Are you trying to catch me in something where I look like an asshole who’s like, microwave it for 10 seconds. And then they’re gonna be like, this bitch doesn’t know
how to cook a turkey. – I guess you would
microwave a turkey for… 10 minutes? – That is a disgrace to turkey. – That is actually a disgrace. – You must put it in the oven. – The oven. Did you mean that? – Nevermind, I mean I don’t think you can microwave a turkey, that’s crazy. – It sounds great though. Sounds like a much faster process. – Eat it cold. – Cold turkey? – Yeah, you don’t even
slice it out of the thing. – You know that’s a phrase
for a horrible thing. – Yes!
– Okay. – Which is ironic because it’s delicious. – Okay.
– Okay. – Don’t be cheating. – I’m not, I know. – I have no clue. – You took my knife. – Oh. – That’s mean. – This is anarchy. – Nah, it’s good stuff, look at this. – No it’s gorgeous. – Keep your eyes on here. – The fork goes on the left. Come on, we learned this. – The fork goes on the left? – Whatever, that’s how I
remember it from etiquette class. – Well. Excuse me.
