THANKSGIVING AT CRU TAKES EVERYONE BY SURPRISE
IN AN ALL NEW EPISODE OF "GREEK," AIRING
MONDAY, OCTOBER 26 ON ABC FAMILY
Episode Promotes Volunteerism as Part of the Show's
"Pledge Yourself to Do Something" Campaign
Burbank, CA (Monday, Oct. 5) � Everyone is packing their bags and heading home for Thanksgiving, but Casey and Rusty find themselves stranded at CRU when their parents leave them behind for Maui. Will Thanksgiving at CRU beat going home for the holidays? Tune in for an all new episode of the ABC Family hit series "Greek," Monday, October 26, 2009 (9:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). The episode, entitled "The Wish-Pretzel," was written by Matt Whitney and Lana Cho and directed by Melanie Mayron.
Fortunately for Rusty, he quickly realizes he has other friends who stayed on campus as well. Casey thinks she has the ZBZ house to herself, but Rebecca joins her after she decides not to go home either. Due to Casey's ongoing streak of bad karma, she and Rebecca decide to volunteer their time by delivering food to the elderly, but too many volunteers show up and their help is turned down. The girls decide to host an "orphan Thanksgiving" at the ZBZ house with frozen pizza for everyone left behind at CRU.
Evan and Cappie are also stuck at CRU for the weekend and see this as a perfect opportunity for them to hang out and play golf. When Cappie realizes he has the annual KT Turkey Hunt, he cancels on Evan to help his brothers follow the final clue which leads to the OX house.
Meanwhile, Rusty and Dale plan to host a Thanksgiving dinner feast, but when Rusty begins to make some headway on his engineering project, the dinner is canceled. Feeling the heat of the competition over the grant they are both fighting for, Dale struggles with his project and sneaks into the lab to read Rusty's notes. Then, the KT's step in to host the dinner, and in the spirit of the holiday, Evan is invited to join. After a surprisingly calm dinner, Cappie decides to walk Casey home, in hopes of telling her how he really feels.
ABC Family has partnered with DoSomething.org for a "Pledge Yourself to Do Something" pro-social campaign to encourage the viewers of "Greek" to take action in their own communities. Just as fraternities and sororities encourage volunteerism on college campuses across the country, the "Pledge Yourself to Do Something" campaign has the fictitious houses of "Greek's" Cyprus-Rhodes University partnering with three featured charities to drive viewers to make commitments to take action in their communities. The three featured charities are Girls, Inc., Global Green USA and Cancer for College. Viewers will be able to learn more about these charities and make a pledge to take action around the causes that matter most to them at www.DoSomething.org/abcfamily.
