It was a Thanksgiving holiday episode, down to the thanks at the table, to the estranged family getting together and bonding, to complaining about the loss of traditions, to the bounty of the land shared by newcomer and established inhabitant alike (even though each were both in this case). All the Thanksgiving episode tropes chopped up and stuffed into a bit of a turkey.

The cutest part to me was the pumpkin's reaction to Steven's carving a regular pumpkin. Maybe a bit of a shout out to the Peanuts bit when Lucy dumps out the pumpkin guts and Linus reacts with horror: "You didn't tell me you were going to kill it!".
