Episode Summary

Family Reunion:
While Grandpa goes on to Chicago because he missed his train stop (likely on purpose), the Pickles stop in (fictional) Willoughby, Iowa to attend their family reunion, hosted by Hugh Pickles and his wife, Dotti. Angelica tells Tommy and the other kids that reunions are swap meets for kids, with the kids being swapped. Her lie ended up backfiring on her, however, when a couple other farming relatives, Mackie & Edie, like a kid like Angelica, though changed to meet THEIR needs.

Grandpa's Date:
After 40 years, Grandpa's long, lost love, Morgana, pays a visit. Morgana broke up with Grandpa over his affair with another woman named Trixie McGee, but never knew the real story. Also, Grandpa doesn't want her to know that he's a grandfather, so he rushed Tommy & Chuckie to bed. In any case, everyone had to contend with Stu's new remote-controlled couch, which is more like a mechanical bull for 2.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: In "Grandpa's Date" while talking to Morgona, Lou mentions that 40 years earlier he was not kissing Trixi McGee, but giving her artificial resperation. And that Trixi was not the woman for him, but Morgona was. Yet in another episode, when it shows Lou in his 30's and Drew and Stu as babies, Lou mentions on the phone his wife's name is Trixi. The same Trixi that he knew 40 years earlier?
