Season 1 - Episode 66 - Aired Jan 27, 1978

Excited at the prospect of finally meeting her benefactor, grandfather William, Candy races into the room while he is sleeping soundly. Later, when next she visits her special patient, he is awake. Excited and nervous, Candy instantly introduces herself as his adoptive daughter. It soon turns out that her patient is William McGregor who hates the Ardleys. A dispute over the Ardleys follows, which causes chest pains in McGregor. Merry Jane gives the responsibility back to Franny and sends Candy off to the park where Candy meets an old woman who talks of the time she was in the hospital for half a year: she treated the staff badly, because she felt alone, and yet she would prefer to be ill in the hospital again, because of the kind nurses. Candy starts to realize that William McGregor may be such a grouch for similar reasons and runs back to school to ask Merry Jane whether she can tend to Mr. McGregor again. It is for Dr. Frank to decide, and he tells her no. Candy happens upon Mr. Brighton, Annie's father, who pays a visit to Mr. McGregor's window to pray for his neighbor's recovery. When McGregor sees Candy talking to Mr. Brighton, he requests for her care.
