        Grandma Nana (To Bob about the gravy boat): If I'd given it to you, you would've lost it in one of your divorces or traded it for opium.

        Judy: It needs to be said. We can't all pretend it doesn't exist, like Eleanor.

      • Grandma Nana: I hate dogs, I was once mauled by a Collie.

        Of course this is a reference to the old show Lassie because June Lockheart (Grandma Nana) played the mother on Lassie.
