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

Classic episode!
26 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

starring: (The regulars: Dan, Julie, Nancy, Yeardley and Harry) also starring Hank Azaria and Phil Hartman.

One of my favorite episodes. It is about Grampa getting a girlfriend after so many years of being single. Homer makes him go with him to Discount Lion Safari on his girl Bea's birthday and Bea dies while hes out. He inherits money and tries to find someone to give it to. Its touching and lovely and one of the best episodes of the series to date. Phil Hartman plays Lionel Hutz and Plato in this one.

My rating- A(95%).
