Episode Quotes
(Harold hallucinating)
Grandma: I'm going to be such a good mother to you. Better than that lousy whore who gave birth to you ever was.
Harold: Mother! You shouldn't talk that way. It's not dignified.
Grandma: I'm sorry, honey. I just get so angry when I think of all she's done to you.
