we have a great show for you tonight. it's thanksgiving, everyone. [ cheers and applause ] i just want to take the chance to thank everyone who fell asleep with their tv set to nbc. food coma ratings count as ratings and it's just great. actually, if you're watching this it means you got through it. thanksgiving is over! you never have to see those people again! [ cheers and applause ] until christmas, but of course, some of you are visiting family or friends for the holiday. and for those people, i just want to say if you're still at someone's house for thanksgiving right now, they want you to leave. [ laughter and applause ] they've already washed your tupperware and handed it back to you. take a hint. leave. hey, gary i went and started your car out there. it's all warmed up for you.
guys, i saw that there were three nfl games today. the eagles versus the lions, the panthers versus the cowboys and the bears versus the packers. while tom brady and the patriots came to the thanksgiving day parade here in new york just to deflate the balloons a little bit. isn't that nice? so, nice. it was so thoughtful.

[ laughter and applause ] i didn't know it was tackle. sorry. wipe that blood off. yeah. next picture says, "great to have all of the grandkids together on thanksgiving." a more accurate caption would be, "rare moment when my grandkids manage to look up
from their precious minecraft long enough to make eye contact with other human beings." [ laughter and applause ] and finally, here is the last picture. the caption says, "i love my family." aw, the more accurate caption should be, "i'm the least important member of my family, so they had me take this photo." you all look good. [ laughter and applause ] of course, this is a day when we're reminded of all the things we should be thankful for, while a new study recently found that the key to happy marriage is regularly expressing your gratitude to your spouse. when couples heard that, they said you first.
