  • Second Holiday/Festival-themed episode; Thanksgiving episode.


Laurel: I am bringing him home on one condition.

Dwayne Pride: What's that?

Laurel:You cannot befriend my boyfriend. You brought Barry to Jazz Fest, Andrew and Chris still call you for advice, and from what I understand, you sent Kenneth a check to cover his rent last month?

Dwayne Pride:Just till his scholarship came through.

Laurel: Dad, we went on three dates two years ago.

Dwayne Pride: He's a good guy.

Laurel: This can't happen. You meet them, you're nice to them, they like you, and then it gets all weird. Are they with me for me, or are they with me because of super cool Agent Dwayne Pride?

Dwayne Pride: Look, what do you want me to do? Give them the Clint Eastwood stare that your grandfather gave me when I started dating your mother?

Laurel: Just be a dad, you know? A little aloof, a little standoffish. And if you want to pretend like you're being overprotective, that's fine, too. Just no cooking together.And and none of that bromance stuff.

Dwayne Pride:(sighs) No bromance.

Laurel: Thank you.
