How can we celebrate ’80s Thanksgiving any other way than to watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles?! This John Hughes classic stars two legends – Steve Martin and John Candy, and features many awesome cameos.
This year, the Return to the ’80s family has grown as Del and I sit around the Thanksgiving episode table with Claire and Caroline!
Obviously we cover this awesomely hilarious movie. We also talk about each of our Thanksgivings, as well as Caroline and Claire’s real life Planes, Trains and Automobiles ordeal.
So get your hand out from between those pillows, throw on your best Del Griffith shower curtain earrings, beat Kevin Bacon to the cab this time, and come join us as we dig in to Planes, Trains and Automobiles!

Del: You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I’m an easy target. Yeah, you’re right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you… but I don’t like to hurt people’s feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I’m not changing. I like… I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. ‘Cause I’m the real article. What you see is what you get.
Planes, Trains & Automobiles was released in theaters on this day, 32 years ago (November 25, 1987).
