I sent an email to somebody last night. This morning I came in and they had replied 6 times with different content in each email. Because each one was a reply using the same subject "Re: whatever", they got stacked together in mail. So on the left, is the newest email and to the right is a 6> showing that there are 6 emails contained within that "thread". My question is... is it possible to print all 6 emails in that thread? I tried selecting all of them in the thread and hitting print but that didn't work. I ended up having to print each one separately. Any thoughts?

I think you should be able to print them all with one command (Command p), but you would have to have them all open when they are threaded.

OR ...

You can go into Mail > View and uncheck "Organize by conversation" and all your inbox emails will be shown separately. In this case, you would "Command a" highlight all - or highlight only those you want printed - and then "Command p" to print all at once. That should work.

Yea.... I already mentioned that I tried selecting them all in the thread on the left and printing but that only wanted to print the first one. If I unthread them so I'm seeing them all on the right when I scroll down, again, it treats them separately and only wants to print the selected one. I can't select more than one on the right.

Hold the "Command" button while you tap the touchpad (or click your mouse) on the emails you want to print. That will select more than one. Put your cursor in the field of selected emails and click print or do a "Control p" to print.
