Plot Synopsis

When Vince's mother injures her leg and is unable to make her traditional Italian Thanksgiving, Will comes to the rescue by offering to make his own special dinner — but Vince's slap-happy mother refuses to give Will any credit. Meanwhile, Jack gives Vince's sister Ro a few pointers on a big secret she is keeping from her family and fiancé. Elsewhere, Grace and Karen get very cozy with Vince's much younger cousin.
