   For Luca Spaghetti's birthday, a group gathers together for an American-style Thanksgiving feast at another couple's home in the countryside, but without the turkey because it would have taken too long to cook. It takes place at Giovanni's home, because his mother is present, clucking out orders and judgments in equal measure. Luca explains that he forgot to defrost the turkey in time for the meal, but the bird ultimately gets cooked in time for breakfast the next morning.
   Liz and Ashram buddy Richard From Texas hit it off right from the start. The camaraderie between the two took a while to warm up. Their initial meetings were more contentious and rife with tension.
