“Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants”

"Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants,” American actor Kevin James joked. The quotation has been printed on many images and has been included in many Thanksgiving quotation collections. The line was cited in Entertainment Weekly on December 1, 2000, taken from Kevin James’ role as Doug Heffernan on the New York City-based television sitcom The King of Queens (Season 2, Episode 8, “Dark Meet,” airdate November 20, 2000).
