-Feeling emasculated by Coach, Nick suggests a group camping trip over Thanksgiving.
-Nick remembers to bring almost 100 cans of beer, but no food--he insists that the gang should forage and hunt for their own food to celebrate the holiday.
-Winston and Cece both hate camping.
-Coach lets Schmidt think he is the best camper in the gang, when in reality, Coach is a former Eagle Scout and adept at wilderness survival.
-When Schmidt injures his arm and Coach reveals the depth of his camping knowledge, Schmidt is insulted that Coach lied to him.
-Nick, Coach, and Schmidt attempt to fish, but Nick can only find a fish that is already dead and rotted.
-Cece, Winston, and Jess drive to a market and just buy some vegetables, instead of foraging for them like Nick requested.
-Nick returns to camp with his rotted fish, initially delighted by all the vegetables. But when he realizes that they were all purchased at a store, rather than foraged for in the woods, he feels betrayed.
-To try to make it up to him, Jess takes a bite of Nick's rotted fish, and becomes wildly ill, hallucinating and wandering through the forest.
-She eventually falls in a hole that Nick dug earlier as a bear trap.
-Nick dives in to help her, and also becomes stuck in the hole.
-Schmidt, Coach, Winston, and Cece make a rope out of pants to carry Nick and Jess up out of the hole.
-Jess is committed to the hospital for her injuries and food poisoning. She tells Nick that she's not mad at him, and respects him as a man.
-Coach and Schmidt make tentative peace in their struggle over Cece.
-The gang then celebrate Thanksgiving with food from the hospital snack machines.
