Deep in the woods, a pack of Wildlife Explorers gather around the fire. The pack leader complains that someone ate all of their breakfast food. One of the kids, Huey, complains that Wallace ate all of the food. Wallace comes over and punches him in the shoulder. He insists that a wild baby bear got into the food but Huey has photos of Wallace eating the food in the forest. Suddenly a furry creature reaches out of the forest, grabs Huey, and pulls him out of sight. The pack leader peers into the woods and the creature leaps out of the woods and throws him to the ground. The Explorers all try and hide but the creature chases them away...

Episode Quotes
Real Estate Agent: All right, well this. It's an emotion property. Ideal for any multi-generational family.
Marilyn: We're not just any family.
Real Estate Agent: Well, the sun shines more on this house than any other house in the neighborhood.
Marilyn: Not a future we're looking for.

Real Estate Agent: That's a horrible place. Horrible things happened there. They found dozens of graves in the backyard.
Marilyn: Umm-hmm.
Real Estate Agent: Maybe you could buy the lot once the grounds have been cleansed.
Marilyn: My aunt and uncle prefer pre-cleansed.
Real Estate Agent: Miss, there may be dead homeless people in the walls.
Marilyn: Then they found a home after all.

Eddie: I didn't get to say goodbye to anybody.
Herman: Moving away is a form of goodbye.
Eddie: Hmm, not really. Did Grandpa try to eat somebody again? Is that why we had to leave?
Herman: No, not Grandpa.

Marilyn: Grandpa, cover yourself. What will the neighbors think?
Grandpa: The neighbors should be more concerned with what I'm thinking.

Herman: You couldn't love Eddie any harder.
Lily: I could've if I breast-fed. He was just so pink and plump.
Herman: You have to stop thinking of him as fragile and/or edible.

Grandpa: You're too attached to how things were, only "were" is now werewolf.

Herman: You hired nannies to raise him and then he ate the nannies.
Grandpa: That's what they were hired for!

Grandpa: I preferred it when the village was further away and we had a moat.
Marilyn: The best moats are made of good manners and filled with congeniality.
Grandpa: Then I shall make cookies.

Grandpa: Marilyn, I adore you. I was the one who talked your mother out of eating you.

Grandpa: My son-in-law would forget his head if it wasn't sewn on.

Marilyn: Also, as an intermediary step, sometimes deer want to be eaten. They're depressed and lonely, so that lion's doing the deer a favor.
Eddie: That deer didn't look depressed.
Marilyn: No, I know. I thought I saw it smile.
Eddie: Does anyone eat the lion?
Marilyn: Grandpa.

Eddie: Mom, I think something's wrong with Grandpa. He took off all of his clothes and then ate a lion.
Lily: You weren't at the zoo, were you?

Lily: The circle of life is a violent shape.
Eddie: It is when Grandpa's drawing it.

Herman: Don't turn the neighbors into your blood slaves.
Grandpa: So you came all the way out here just to complain about helpful neighbors?

Grandpa: So it's open, honest dialogue with my grandson you disapprove of?
Herman: You're not being open and honest. You're being weird and confusing. You ate a lion while naked.
Grandpa: The lion was naked. It seemed polite.

Herman: What will we tell Eddie?
Grandpa: The truth.
Herman: That I stole the heart of his Wildlife pack leader that you exsanguinated?
Grandpa: Well, he'd learn a brand-new word, for starters.

Grandpa: The strangest thing about grieving is realizing the loved one's death really isn't that big of a deal.

Grandpa: Marriage and mortality. Till death do us part. I have had many brides. All dead now. But we keep in touch.

Eddie: My grandpa's going to eat you.
Marilyn: Is that happening tonight?
Eddie: Um-hmm.
Grandpa: Kids.
