When D.J., Stephanie and Kimmy arrive home at 2:00am from Kimmy's bachelorette party they decide to call Michelle. It's 5:00am in New York, they get Michelle's voice mail and they start saying some of Michelle's old catchphrases.
While D.J. is making her Thanksgiving speech she hopes Michelle can be with them the following year.
Max talks about the time Michelle got amnesia and her stuffed rhino Rigby while searching for the baby-naming gown in the attic. Other items of Michelle's are also seen in the attic including her old bike, and a drawing of Comet.
