  • Trivia

    • Granny seems to be enjoying playing the slot machines down at the swimming pool winning nickels from the slots. However, in the episode Jed, the Bachelor, where Granny goes to Las Vegas, she thinks that the slot machines that were being played by the people there were silly, and the people playing them were spending their money looking at pictures of sorry-looking fruit. Apparently, after five years in Beverly Hills after that, she learned better.
