As celebrate the big day of delicious food, I challenge you to a Thanksgiving-themed movie quote quiz! Just match each quote with its appropriate title.
"I'm not spending my Thanksgiving in ________."
Hello, dear readers! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! May your day be filled with delicious food and family warmth and, of course, your favorite forms of entertainment. Today I am thankful for all of you!
For the special holiday, I'm posting clips from a Thanksgiving episode of Scrubs in which JD has to have his appendix removed and can't enjoy Thanksgiving. The best line is toward the end, from a wistful JD: "Ah, uncomfortable silences and alcohol, just like Thanksgiving at home."

This week people around the country will be saying thanks for their blessings: family, friends, good health, etc. So it's a fitting time to make a playlist of music that captures this sentiment in song. Many popular songs that express gratitude have to do with thanking a romantic partner for his/her love, but there are plenty of tunes that are simply thankful for someone's kindness (Natalie Merchant's "Kind and Generous") or for good friendship ("Thank You for Being a Friend" by Andrew Gold, later covered and used for the Golden Girls theme song).
If you wanted to say thanks through song, which tunes would you pick? I've selected a smattering of songs full of gratitude (including some silly ones), which you can check out if you read more
"Maybe it's just Thanksgiving I hate. You know, the whole holiday family thing. It just makes me so tense. I swear if you put a piece of coal between my butt cheeks today, by Hanukkah, it'd be a diamond."
