When the best of intentions go wrong.

In this Thanksgiving setting episode, the Mayor's office and the Council's office are having a competition. For Thanksgiving they will see which office can feed the most homeless people. The loser of the competition will have to perform a musical number in front of press at their respective regular meeting.

As for the Mayor's office, they have taken a church in the poor part of the town in hopes of serving more people. But they find out that the kitchen where they are to cook is in bad need of repair. But with some favors from Mike's contacts they are able to get the kitchen up and running. With the number of people fed nearly tied, the Mayor's team will make a critical error. The message of good will toward the homeless does not resound like it should.

Another interesting episode that was entertaining. The main plot stood on its own but the show also contained another good story when a long time girlfriend of James comes for a surprise visit. With both stories playing out in the format, this turned into a very good show for the viewers. Good watch.
