  • Episode Description
  • After the Chief & Nell couldn't take Joey to the rodeo in town, An already sick Grandpa decides to take him. But that day, it was raining & Grandpa came down with bad pneumonia. At the hospital, the whole family wants to see him, but the nurse instructs Nell that Joey is underaged. Nell then sneaks Joey in the hospital room. Joey gets out a tape recorder & sings "Swanee". Just when Nell and Joey have given up hope, Nell tells Grandpa that he's lost his will to live and if he dies she will have to tell everybody in Poland that he "threw in the sausage"! Grandpa wakes up and tells Nell that she will never be able to do that and that Joey misspelled Dixie. The two are overjoyed that Grandpa hasn't given up when they see he is up to his old tricks when a nurse comes into the room and he teases her.moreless
