Storyline

Jimmy lets hygiene-obsessed Sabrina and her detection use of the store's black-light to identify counterfeit banknotes convince him germs are an omnipresent health treat. Faced with bright blue proof all over the house, the Chances start cleaning like mad, only to find mad Maw Maw undoes it all in no time. Residential care being out of budgetary reach, they move her into the greenhouse, which goes quite well. However comparing family histories with Sabrina after watching family movies changes views.

Trivia

When the family and Sabrina are gathered outside watching old home movies, Burt remarks that a much younger Maw Maw in the videos looks like "the horny neighbor from Mary Tyler Moore." This is an obvious jab at the fact that Cloris Leachman, who plays Maw Maw, in fact played that horny neighbor - Phyllis Lindstrom - and even had a spin-off. Younger Maw Maw's hairstyle is even made to look like Phyllis Lindstrom's did on MTM. Oddly enough, however, "Horny neighbor" actually describes Leachman's co-star on MTM, Betty White, as Sue Ann Nivens. Given that Leachman and White are good-natured rivals, the reference can also be looked at as Cloris being mistaken for Betty again. Or maybe the writers just came up with a composite version of Phyllis and Sue Ann. See more »
