Jesse takes Pamela to the park for their new 'Daddy and Me' class that is a heavy hipster contingent, nothing but ironic facial hair and gluten-free man buns. Jesse meets another dad, Ben who assumes Jesse is Pamela's grandfather so Jesse sets him straight. At game time while the other children play with tech, Jesse goes 'old school' by giving Pamela a ball. Jesse guesses from Ben's 'man-bun' and outfit that he's a 'millennial'.

Jesse hopes Pamela isn't missing out by having a dad who's old. He wonders if parenting has changed that much since Nicky and Alex were kids.

Ben heard a rumour that Jesse owns The Smash Club and tells him that his dad used to go there to see "Jesse and the Roofers". To which Jesse corrects him in saying the band is called "Jesse and The Rippers". When Ben notices the kids are a lot more active than usually, he questions as to who was 'snack dad', the other dads point out Jesse.

Danny tells D.J. he had to be there for her big moment. With D.J. still confused, the dancing stops and Jesse plays soft music on his guitar. Steve comes walking through the crowd and asks Danny for his blessing. Steve get's down on one knee in front of everyone and proposes. To which D.J. responds "Yes. Yes. A million times yes".

Cold Turkey

Danny, Jesse, and Joey arrive to celebrate Thanksgiving. They park Joey's new car on the back lawn. Kimmy runs out to the backyard and tells them to stop fighting, which they weren't. D.J. and Stephanie also enter the backyard to greet their visitors. Stephanie hands Dani to Danny.

D.J., Stephanie, Danny, Jesse, Joey, Jackson, and Max watch the Thanksgiving parade on TV together, from the living room. When Danny asks D.J. when dinner will be ready, Stephanie informs him that she is cooking this year. Jesse is outraged. Sick of their complaining about not having their traditional Thanksgiving side dishes, Stephanie sends Danny, Jesse, and Joey to Uncle Monty’s Sandwich Emporium to get the turkey out of the smoker.

After Danny and Jesse retrieve the turkey, Joey calls them into the walk-in freezer. Joey imitates Rocky Balboa by punching hanging meat. As their backs are turned, the freezer door closes. Joey goes to open the door to find it locked. Jesse attempts to open the door but pulls the door knob off. Danny tries to phone the girls but there's no reception.

The guys take turns holding the warm turkey in their laps. They wonder why the girls haven't rescued them yet. Jesse mentions that Danny originally didn't want Joey to move into the house all those years ago, which upsets Joey. Jesse makes Joey a scarf out of sausages. Danny explains that after losing Pam it felt strange to have a comic move into the house. He had young kids and Joey had crazy hours. Danny is thankful he gets to spend his life with both Jesse and Joey. When Jesse hair gel freezes his hair comes off in clumps. Jesse breaks though the glass window of the freezer door. He climbs half way through, reaches down and opens the door from the outside. Danny and Joey run out but come back to help Jesse out of the door.

After Fernando, Kimmy, Ramona, and Jimmy finish their dance number to America, Danny, Jesse, and Joey arrive back from Uncle Monty's and head straight into the kitchen. They are shocked to discover Stephanie has backed Joey's car into the side of the house... just like when she was 8 years old. Jesse is upset about his dinner.

D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, Jackson, Ramona, Max, Tommy, Fernando, Steve, Jimmy, Danny, Jesse, Joey, and Dani eat dinner in the living room. D.J. knows she makes a really big deal about traditions but for her Thanksgiving is about the people you love. She promises to make way for new traditions. Stephanie and Jimmy give Dani her first piece of solid food, pumpkin puree.

Be Yourself, Free Yourself

Jackson, Ramona, Max, and Tommy eat breakfast when Jesse arrives with Pamela who was bitten at school the day before. When her teacher won't tell Jesse who bit Pamela, he decides to find out himself.

Jesse gathers Jackson, Ramona, and Max because he is having an after-school playdate/sting operation to find out who bit Pamela. He needs them to do recon - pass out a cookie to a potential perpetrator. That way Jesse can match the bite mark to the bite mark on Pamela's arm. The doorbell rings and parents enter with their children. When Ben arrives he is upset with Jesse because he never called him after the gender reveal party.

Jackson, Ramona, and Max come to the conclusion that it's not easy taking a cookie from a kid. They also found out none of the kids match the bite mark on Pamela's arm. But one of the kids hasn't had a cookie yet, Ben's son Finn. Ben doesn't allow Finn to have processed sugar. Jesse offers Finn a slice of sweet apple. After Finn takes a bite Jesse takes the slice off him and finds Pamela in the kitchen watching Stephanie make dinner for Jimmy. Jesse believes the bite marks are a perfect match. Jesse accuses Finn of biting Pamela at school the previous day. Ben blurts out that Finn wasn't at school because they went to Disneyland. Jesse catches Pamela biting her own arm. Pamela likes Band-Aids so much she bites herself. Jesse explains all Pamela needs to do is ask and he'll give her all the Band-Aids she wants. Jesse apologises to Ben for being a jerk. Ben forgives because forgiveness is a hug you give to your soul. Ben hugs Jesse.

When D.J. and Jesse arrive at the Hospital Stephanie tells them she thinks Jimmy deserves better. Stephanie believes she's not good at taking care of people. D.J. reminds Stephanie that she gave up her whole life to move in and take care of her and her kids when she needed her the most. Jimmy is happy he has a baby, a fiancee, a home, and a business all because of Stephanie.

D.J., Stephanie, Kimmy, and Jesse eat the cake Stephanie made before Jimmy has a chance.
