  • Episode Description
  • Grandpa hides a letter from Grandma and she believes he's cheating on her. When she secretly takes the letter and reads it, she realizes that the apartment they live in is being converted into a condo and they need to come up with $60,000 or else they have to leave. Grandpa and Nell go to the bank and after the loan officer declines him for a loan, everyone mistakes him as a robber when he says he's going to "off" the loan officer, when he was really just turning off his hearing aid. The police are called, and the Chief tells the bank that his father and Nell would never do such a thing. Grandpa tells the man at the bank that he gave him the money when he was mistaken for a robber, but he wouldn't give it to an honest guy like him. The man gives him a waffle iron and apologizes for the way he treated him. In the end, the Chief tells Grandpa and Grandma that they don't have to move since he made Simpson pose as a building inspector and found a lot of violations, forcing it not to go condo after all.moreless
