** Grampa Simpson ended up lost in the woods while trying to get the morning paper (which is odd, since "The Old Man and the Lisa" revealed that the retirement home no longer has newspapers as the news angries up the elderly residents' blood and there's a sign outside the home that reads, "Thank you for not discussing the outside world.") '''''and''''' is found again hours later, trying to get his dentures back from a turtle (without success).

-->'''Scully''': Mr. Simpson, it's a felony to lie to the F.B.I.
