Grim In Love is the first segment of the fifth episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.


When Billy, Mandy and Grim go to the beach, Grim falls in love with a gothic woman named Malaria. Grim and Malaria have fun dating, but Mandy points out that it will change once Grim tells Malaria that he's not human and is actually the Grim Reaper. In the following date, Grim demonstrates his supernatural powers while dancing and, as predicted, Malaria leaves in panic.
