Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On Thanksgiving Eve, C.J. (Allison Janney) tries to find someone to mollify a pair of Native Americans (Gary Farmer, Georgina Lightning) who intend to camp out in the White House lobby until a 15-year-old dispute is settled. Meanwhile, Josh (Bradley Whitford) is forced to broker a political deal with a high-ranking death-penalty advocate in order to expedite a 13-year-old American boy who fled to Italy after killing his teacher. Sam (Rob Lowe) tries to put a positive spin on a new OMB poverty formula that would negatively reclassify millions of Americans. And President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) will not be swayed in his resolve to prepare a proper Thanksgiving dinner for his family.
