From Turkey Heads to 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles': Thanksgiving Pop Culture Moments
No matter how many times you've seen, that last scene from "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" is a guaranteed tearjerker.
Besides turkey, there are many Thanksgiving favorites, especially when it comes to pop culture.
There are the "Friends" episodes with characters Monica and Joey sporting raw turkeys on their heads, and Rachel's horrific attempt at making trifle that comes out tasting like feet, as Ross tells her.
"Cheers" featured a food fight, "Rocky" had a turkey that ended up in the alley and "The Brady Bunch" created a home movie about the voyage of the Pilgrims with this assessment of what happened after they landed at Plymouth Rock: "Then they ate and ate and ate."
Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving was full of football and "Addams Family Values" featured a holiday musical number.
But one perennial favorite, "Planes, Trains and Automobiles," features a heavy dose of comedy and a seriously sentimental ending.
Steve Martin, after being stuck with fellow traveler John Candy, is finally rid of him at the film's conclusion, only to realize he's grown fond of the guy. So he brings home for Thanksgiving, where his family stands in the entry hall.
"Hi ya, kiddo," Martin tells his daughter. "Daddy!" she chirps. And Candy tears up.
