There’s a different “take” on Thanksgiving this week on Perfect Harmony.
First things first. Cash is back on Perfect Harmony this week! We have missed Ginny and Wayne’s dimpled son the last couple of episodes. And now we learn that Cash is short for Cassius Clay, the birth name of Kentucky’s heralded boxing champ Muhammad Ali.
Arthur has plans to be alone on Thanksgiving, but the church choir insists he join them instead. The choir has a progressive dinner after first preparing meals for needy church members. Arthur agrees to the charitable activity but not the progressive dinner. He changes his mind when his laptop goes missing.
Things go a little haywire in the romance department as well. Dwayne’s gal pal Georgia becomes jealous of Ginny. Meanwhile, Adams tries to set up her contractor Karl with Ginny, but the builder has a different idea.
Let’s take a look at the high “notes” from Perfect Harmony this week.
The choir performs a barber shop quartet style song to invite Arthur to join them for Thanksgiving. He prefers to watch an opera on his laptop alone on the houseboat. He will only join them for the portion where they make meals for other church members who need them. Then he is out.
Arthur is ready to leave when he cannot find his laptop. He cannot watch the opera without his laptop. Arthur decides it must be Wayne that stole his laptop. Dwayne and Wayne’s house is the first stop on the progressive dinner, so Arthur begrudgingly makes the first stop.

Arthur digs through the closet at Dwayne’s house but only comes up with a cheesy romance novel on which a younger Dwayne is the cover model. Several jokes ensue about the book. Wayne says it could be a wealthy person who stole the laptop just for kicks. Affluent Adams is the next stop for the progressive dinner. Arthur sticks with his choir for the next course determined to find the laptop.
Cash sees Arthur snooping around and offers his paid services as an unsuspecting, dimple-cheeked kid. When Adams catches Cash going through her cabinets, Cash serves up a sob story about struggling with the divorce. Adams consoles Cash who uses the encounter to charge Arthur more money for his help snooping.
With still no laptop in sight, Arthur joins the group at Ginny’s house for the main course. Cash decides to charge Arthur even more saying it feels wrong to snoop in his own home. Desperate Arthur obliges and Cash says he can use Arthur’s phone app to find the laptop. The cute little hustler has been withholding this information all along.
The app finds the laptop on the coat rack. Jax has been hiding the laptop all along to keep Arthur with the group.
Adams brings her contractor Karl to the dinner as a potential suitor for Ginny. Ginny says she is not ready to date, but she still gives it a try and ends up failing miserably at flirting. Georgia and Wayne have no trouble turning on the charm with one another and being the cutesy couple in public. The couple’s public displays of affection annoy Ginny. Is she a little jealous or just annoyed?
Ginny falls while trying to coyly reach for a candle in front of Karl at Adams’ house. She injures her knee and Dwayne helps her. Georgia is not pleased with Dwayne’s gesture and says she will take Ginny home. Back at Ginny’s house, Georgia accuses Ginny of trying to steal Dwayne. Ginny scoffs at the idea. The two begin arguing as the rest of the group arrives.
Meanwhile, Wayne learns that Karl is not impressed with Ginny’s flirting and that the construction worker agreed to come as Adams’ date. Wayne tries to gently warn Ginny about Karl, but she refuses to listen and insults Wayne instead. Karl leaves and Adams tries to stop him. Karl tells Adams he is interested in her and the two kiss . . . just as Ginny opens the door.
Arthur exits with his laptop and leaves all the drama behind. Jax goes to the houseboat to apologize to Arthur. The reverend refers to hiding the laptop as a “BPI”, a “benign pastoral interference”. Jax explains that he did not want Arthur to be alone on the holiday missing his late wife. Arthur says that is why he wanted to be alone. Jax suggests that Jean would want him to live joyfully just as she did. Arthur admits that he really did have fun with the progressive dinner.
Surprise! The rest of the choir is waiting outside to join Jax and Arthur. Georgia is missing from the group, however, and we learn that she broke up with Dwayne. The group brings the rest of the food with them. Everyone eats and takes turns sharing what they are grateful for.
In another surprising move, exes Ginny and Wayne end up spending the night together at Ginny’s house.
- Arthur ends up walking through the Thanksgiving “Turkey Trot” race on the way to the church to make meals. Surprisingly, he gets first place for his age group “the seasoned turkeys”.
- Arthur sees Ginny trying to flirt with Karl who resembles actor Ryan Gosling. The choir director asks her how things are working out with “Tryin’ Gosling”.
- Ginny apologizes because she “shut [Wayne] down” when he tried to warn her about Karl’s intentions. Wayne replies gleefully, “I’m your Waffle House. You can never shut me down.”
- Ginny has a “plastic bag of plastic bags”. For the record, I do as well.
Thanks for joining us for another #PerfectHarmony tonight, folks! We're so grateful for y'all.
