"The Wishbone" is the fifth episode of Suburgatory (season 2 ) and the twenty-seventh episode overall.


Tessa's mother Alex shows up in Chatswin for Thanksgiving, but Tessa had expected her to show up at her grandmother's apartment in Manhattan. Malik comes over to the Shay's house for Thanksgiving dinner, and annoys Lisa when he actually gets along well with Sheila. Sheila accidentally walks in on a naked Malik getting out of the shower, embarrassing Lisa .


  • Along with "Krampus", "Junior Secretary's Day", and the two part season finale, this is generally regarded as one of the best episodes after "The Witch of East Chatswin".
