Grampa begins dating Bea Simmons, another resident of the Springfield Retirement Castle, but she dies. She was a very rich woman, and leaves all her money to Grampa. He is at first unsure how to spend it, and invites suggestions from all-comers who, apart from Lisa, are greedy and want it for themselves. He ultimately donates it to make much needed improvements to the retirement home, telling everybody: "Dignity's on me, friends." Written by

This was the first episode to feature Grampa's full name, Abraham Simpson. Matt Groening
named the main characters after his own family members (except for Bart, an anagram of brat, which he substituted for his own name), but refused to name Grampa after his grandfather, Abram Groening. He left it to the writers to choose a name and they chose "Abraham", not knowing that it was also the name of Groening's grandfather. See more

I think Grampa smells like that trunk in the garage where the bottom's all wet.
No, I think he smells more like a photo lab.
Stop it, you two! Grampa smells like a normal old man, which is more like a hallway in a hospital.
