  • When Nell is sick at home and the Chief going off to Los Angeles for a meeting, he calls his mother to help out around the house. She shuns away Katies new boyfriend since he has pink hair, puts garlic on everyone because she doesn't want them to catch Nells sickness, and feeds the family lamb with goats intestines. Fed up by this, everyone forces Samantha to go to Grandpa and tell him to beg Grandma to return home and she falls head over heels for him.moreless

Grandma: Oh, this must be the punk. Katie: Greg, this is my grandmother. Grandma, this is Greg Hartman. Greg: Hello, nice to meet you. Grandma: Is that an earring you're wearing? Greg: Sure is. Grandma: Oh, what they'll do today to break their mothers' hearts. Katie: Well, we got to get going. Grandma: If you don't mind my asking. Is one half of your hair brown? Greg: You got it Grandma. Grandma: And is this half of your hair pink? Greg: You got it again. Grandma: Were you born that way? Greg: I can't remember, I was just a baby (Grandma and Greg both laugh sarcastically) Grandma: Drop him. He's a nutcase.

    • Grandma: My grandfather ate glopnik every day of his life, and he lived to be 102. Julie: How did he die? Grandma: He was shot in the war. Katie: He was in the army at 102? Grandma: No, he was in a pool room. He was leaning out the window to find out what the shooting was about...he found out.

    • This is Jane Dulo's last episode. It was made clear later the following season that Grandma had passed away, which set the stage for Grandpa moving into the Kanisky household.
