Jim gets a circus's confused chimpanzee Danny and is railroaded into attending his overbearing suitor Cynthia Blake's Thanksgiving party, while none of the family is up to it anyhow. Syd is invited at John's grand family feast, makes a fine first impression on his ma Constance Hemming and gets Social Services officer Alex's permission to put up apparently abandoned girl Anchee for a week. The Hemmings family discretely donates an EMG and Chinatown P.I. Simon Chang... Burt proposes a place to Joanie to move into together and shouts a fancy restaurant, where he clearly doesn't tolerate noisy children... Dwayne turns up, but insists he must have his own guitar back, pawned for $800, beyond Robbie's means to advance, so he rents one- a waiter recognizes his artistic playing... Jim figures out the ape uses sign-language, to say he's called Rocket and home-sick... Written by KGF Vissers See less
