8:32 am
scientific discoveries go to every community in america. and america helps us fund it. because as you know, we're non-profit. nobody pays at st. jude for anything. not travel or housing or food or treatment. so this is one of the ways in which we raise money. >> how does it work today if people go out shopping? >> well first of all, can you see me on the camera? first thing you do, you look for this logo. this is where the good guys are. ann taylor, loft, williams-sonoma, best buy. we're sending out gift cards now, home goods and domino's pizza, k-mart, kay jewelers. wherever you go, they'll ask you to add a little something for the children of st. jude. all you got to do is say yes or go to st. >> you have with us lauren lewis and abby geyser. hi, ladies. happy thanksgiving. >> thank you. >> what are you thankful for

this we are? >> i'm thankful that i go the to keep my eye and my leg and that god blessed me with that. >> how about you, lauren? >> i'm thankful for being here in new york -- >> to hang out with us. >> yes. >> this is what america looks like working together, everybody giving a little something to help us continue our motion of finding cures and saving children. >> these are special girls you brought some amazing stories. you inspire us and remind us why st. jude is so important. >> no child, no family, pays a nickel for this treatment because of the great work marlo and st. jude do together. thank you. >> we have one more treat. okay. so if you have a gift bag, you may find a gift card from your retailer. those of you out here who have gift bags with green ribbons on them? raise them up. raise your bags. you got your bag up? if you have a green ribbon on it. hold it up. right? you're big winners for the $100 or $250 gift card inside.
8:34 am
there you have it. happy spending there. >> that's a lot of pizza. >> very good. thank you again, marlo. lauren. abby. >> thank you for having us. . we're taking a look at weekend outlook where we are going to see some heavier rain and also some snow showers in the pacific northwest. the highest elevations. saturday, most of the run is mostly across northern new england. we could see heavy rain and gusty winds across eastern maine with some snow possible in the higher elevations. here is what you can expect if you are traveling on sunday. we could see some stronger storms, especially through the midwest. that would be heavy rain. if you're traveling along i-35, you could run into some delays because of the heavier rain. the rain also looks heavy out in the pacific northwest with some more mountain snow. that means mountain passes will have an issue. in the southeast and up and down that i-95 corridor, if you are traveling on sunday, it looks
8:35 am
a-okay. we should see lots of sunshine, temperatures comfortable, too, in the 40s and 50s. saturday at 4:00 p.m. is one of the worst times to be on the road. keep that in mind. you might want to wait until sunday is a littl e good morning, i'm first alert meteorologist krystal klei. cloudy through much of the day and we should see isolated showers. not much philadelphia in the suburbs and leehay valley. temperatures warm up to the mid-50s. 56 in summerton and 53 lansdale. allentown 50 degrees. presidenter chance of isolated showers late day into the evening. delaware temperatures mid to upper 50s possible in delaware. >> okay. we're checking off bucket lists here. here. it was get this box checked by "today" show host. i guess i count. right? >> yeah! >> awesome! thank you so much. >> all right, dylan. oscar nominee jessica chastain is known for playing
8:36 am
powerful women and her latest role certainly is no exception. >> the new thriller, "miss sloan," she plays a ruthless washington lobbyist. at the center of the story is a controversial gun safety bill. elizabeth sloan will go to any length to outsmart her foes. >> well being is about foresight. about anticipating your opponent's moves. and dividing counter measures. the winner plots one step ahead of the opposition. and plays her trump card just after they play theirs. >> jessica chastain, good morning. we're mesmerized. >> good goosebumps. >> thanks! >> so elizabeth sloan described by one viewer as beautiful but scary. >> good. well, elizabeth sloan is a very powerful lobbyist working in
8:37 am
d.c. she gets brought over to work on a bipartisan gun bill. >> you know, of course, everyone talk about the election at thanksgiving dinner yesterday. perhaps some survived, some did not. what a perfect timing. >> i think it is a great thing. as an actress you don't get very many roles where you play a female character -- or even see in the movies that you have a female character ambitious, perfectionist and so flawed. you see men play these roles all the time but i think in our society women aren't necessarily brought into that area. i think it is good to have elizabeth sloan there in the world. >> you did some research as you always do for a character in d.c. sort of looking at the world of lobbying. we know the reputation of lobbyists. sort of mercenaries and cynical a devious. >> no. i met with some incredible women. i went to d.c. -- well, first, i will say i started by reading
8:38 am
jack abramoff's book. that's an interesting place to start. how could someone go wrong here? then i researched the most successful lobbyist in d.c. and i went there and met with 11 women. what really struck me about them was how powerful they were, even almost before they entered the room. 7 out of the 11 women were wearing black nail polish. they had like -- they really carried this energy with them to contend with what they were doing because i found out less than 10% of lobbyists are women. i think they -- you have to really show up. >> especially in d.c. i mean it is a tough town as we know. i can imagine when the odds and numbers are against you as it is with gender, women in d.c. and this character. >> it is fascinating. d.c. definitely -- i think we all know it is a bit of a boy's club. when you have the debates, one of the things hillary clinton was criticized for was being overprepared in the first debate. i've never heard anyone say that about a man. ever.
8:39 am
actually, i love being overprepared. i'm overprepared for things and elizabeth sloan is, too. >> it is clear you prepared for this one. a lot of people are mentioning the word "oscar" with this one. when people see movie, they'll know why. >> thank you so much. >> "miss sloan" opens in theaters today. we have an exclusive clip on our website, coming up next, great ways to enjoy your thanksgiving leftovers starting with little turkey sliders. stick around. first, this is "today" on nbc.

9:52 am
press down and pull up. >> why not? >> what happens is if you turn it, it locks the sides of this and it will not rise beautifully. >> chef secret. >> isn't that nice? i could do this all day long. i'm going to let you do it though. >> in all my years of doing cookies -- >> i even bake biscuits together side by side just to see. i twisted one and i did the other because i didn't believe, and it did make all the difference in the world. >> you like parchment paper. >> absolutely. i just think it is really easy. once you are done, you throw it away. you don't have to wash your pan. at this point i'm exhausted, tired of cooking, i'm over it. but by making these few little things it keeps the family going over the weekend. >> what i like about both of them is they don't taste like thanksgiving. so it is a change of pace. >> mix your cranberry sauce, mix with just a little bit of room temperature butter. >> this was terrific.
