Grandma's Dead is the 23rd episode of Season 1 on FOX comedy That '70s Show.

Synopsis

Eric's driving his grandmother home after a tension-filled visit. He tells her it wouldn't kill her to be nicer to his parents, and she keels over dead. Eric's guilt-ridden, and Donna suggests he talk to his dad about how he feels. Instead he goes drinking with the guys and gets a black eye in a bar fight.

Plot

Eric thinks he killed his grandmother, Bernice, when she dies after he tells her off for being nasty to his mother and says "it wouldn't kill you to be nice", and he doesn't know how to deal with it and ends up getting into a bar fight. Red is also at a loss on how to cope with his mother's passing and is embarrassed by his emotional brother Marty, who comes to the funeral. Eventually, Eric admits to Red what he said to Bernice just before she died, but Red is more than forgiving (and very amused at the fact this sort of thing would only happen to Eric).
