Storyline

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 don @ minifie-1

Heartfelt Episode!
23 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The seventeenth episode of the second season of the Simpsons happens to be one of the most touching episodes of this season. It's not all that funny, despite some really good jokes being present. But it's more sad because of the crumbling relationship between Homer and his father. Despite all the sadness, I could not help but feel the pain for both sides of the party.

In this episode, "Old Money," Grampa begins to date a lady named Bea. One Sunday, Homer decides to take Grampa out to have fun, but while out Bea passes away. Grampa is inherited $106,000 dollars, but he can't forgive Homer or be happy with the money he has been received.

Overall, this episode is a little bit on the sad side. It still has some good jokes and some cool pop culture references regarding Star Wars and Batman. I rate this episode 9/10.
