This Thanksgiving, we are thankful to have Barry Goldberg in our lives.

On Wednesday's Thanksgiving episode of The Goldbergs, Pops (George Segal) forgoes his usual holiday toast to let Barry (Troy Gentile) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) battle it out for the honors. While Erica decides to pull for the heartstrings, as you can see in the exclusive sneak peek above, Barry is holding absolutely nothing back. And "y'alls about to get touched ninja-pilgrim style!"

Watch the video to see his epic toast — and to learn the etymology of maize. Who knew?

The Goldbergs airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c on ABC.
