Things Don’t Get Any Better as the SNL Thanksgiving Sketch Goes On

Trey and Elise enter the dining room and to Trey’s family’s surprise, Elise is actually a turkey. The family sits down to enjoy the meal and Elise asks what they are eating.

“Um, yams, green beans,” Trey’s dad stutters.

“Rolls, butter for the rolls,” Trey’s mom answers.

Reaching for the covered plate, Elise says, “what’s under here?” causing the family to panic. Elise faints.

Trey is outraged and screams at his father, “Dad, what are you trying to do?”

“It’s Thanksgiving! I didn’t know your girlfriend was a goddamn turkey!” his father yells.

Elise recovers and agrees to sit at the table and enjoy the meal with Trey’s family. As his father begins to carve the cooked turkey in front of her, Elise is woozy and gets up from the table. She storms out of the house and tells Trey to lose her number, making for one awkward family meal.
