  • Episode Description
  • Grandpa's Bad Bug: Grandpa gets out of doing chores by faking a "bad bug", though the Rugrats thought that he actually eaten one. To take care of this, they find some "good bugs" for Grandpa to eat. Lady Luck: Grandpa takes Tommy & Chuckie to the new Seniors Center to play bingo. When Grandpa starts losing, however, Tommy & Chuckie look for "Lady Luck", who turned out to be Mrs. Holkin, the center's supervisor. While they look for her, however, they livened up the center, where "rest & relaxation is the key to happiness", especially since this is a place where aerobics and cha-chas are just as slow as Tai Chi, and where jumping over checkers is prohibited.moreless

    • Grandpa: If a promise you don't keep, May it haunt you in your sleep. And as you lie beneath your quilt, You will have a conscience full of guilt. Grandpa: (Deciding to break his promise of not going to a pinochle tournament by saying this rebuttal) But if it's cards you like to play, Play all night and sleep all day!

    Notes (1)

    • "Lady Luck" was David Doyle's last episode because he died of a Heart Attack.

    Trivia (5)

    • Goof: At the end of one scene, the babies are in their regular clothes instead of their pajamas.

    • Goof: During the bingo match, listen closely to the numbers; they aren't the same as the actual bingo formation, which is 1 to 15 under the B, 16 to 30 under O, etc. The announcer drew the numbers as "N-2", "O-2", etc. At first, I though this was one of the center's techniques to keep the patrons "quiet and relaxed" by not winning and yelling out "Bingo!", but I later found out that Grandpa later won with the erroneous numbers.

    • Goof: When Stu and Didi are in the garden, Didi is wearing a purple sweater but when she is zoomed in on and says" They're so Sweet" her outfit is the same red dress she always wears.

    • Goof: When Grandpa has 1 more square to go, the bingo board already has a bingo diagonally.

    • Goof: In "Lady Luck", when the bingo caller says O7, Grandpa puts it on an I square.
