WATCH: SNL Knows How to Shut Down Transphobic Thanksgiving Talk.

Most human beings are able to come to some kind of understanding with their parents. Thanksgiving dinner is coming up, folks, and what that means, for many, is that there’s going to be a whole heap of disagreement served between family members.The cast of Saturday Night Live knows “Thanksgiving with family can be hard,” as a sketch aired last night explores. “Everyone has different opinions and beliefs.” The scene opens with a family — mom Vanessa Bayer, dad Beck Bennett, and aunt (or family friend) Aidy Bryant — sitting down to dinner with the younger generation, including daughter Cecily Strong, her boyfriend Jay Pharoah, and an unnamed little girl. After some polite chatter about what they’re thankful for, the conversation quickly turns to Syrian refugees, police brutality, and then, to transgender people. When it comes to extended family members, however, damn near every person on this planet walks on egg shells, just waiting for someone to say the wrong thing.

As everyone at the table starts bickering, the youngest dinner guest turns to the CD player, and unleashes Adele’s “Hello,” a track so powerful that everyone at the table is transfixed, unable to stop themselves from an emphatic lip-synch session. As the track progresses, each dinner guest gets more involved, as they transform into campy versions of the Grammy-winning singer, complete with wind-blown hair, dramatic makeup, and furs. Thankfully, with one click of an Adele tune, the cast is instantly morphed into a peaceful, non-judgmental family that all of us can (hopefully) get onboard with. Her songs are modern and aggressive enough to please younger family members and yet they’re universal and straightforward enough to appeal to older people.

So, remember this, folks: If your family starts debating issues that will undoubtedly lead down a nasty rabbit hole of nothing but insults this coming Thursday, turn on some Adele. Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey stopped by SNL last night to fill the host spot, and while it was enjoyable all around, perhaps the best segment was the monologue itself.

McConaughey stepped out and admitted that he forgot how difficult hosting the show was – as even though they were putting on 16-hour days, they were nowhere near ready to perform. So, here, the basic idea is that Thanksgiving conversations can go South quickly because most people have absolutely nothing in common with their relatives.
