Synopsis >

At the Springfield retirement castle, Grampa Simpson gets his pills mixed up with those of an elderly widow, Beatrice Simmons. They hit it off and a romance blooms. But when Grampa plans to spend Bea’s birthday with her, the Simpsons come and take him away to a wild animal park, where the animals surround the Simpsons car not letting them out. When they finally return to the retirement home, Bea is dead. A grieving Grampa is surprised to learn that Bea left him $100,000. When the townspeople become aware of this, they show up at Grampa’s door begging to have the money for their own purposes. Realizing he doesn’t have enough money for all the people who need it, Grampa heads for a casino to bet the hundred grand. Homer stops him, and Grampa realizes there is a good use for the money - refurbishing the senior citizen home to make it more livable for the elderly there.
