Howdy schullerx-ga,

The Russian language website "" (??????.Ru) has the quote that
you cite in Cyrillic.  This is how the quote appears on that website.

"???? ?? ? ???? ??????? (? ?????? - 'What if my grandmother ...' - ????.
?????.) ???? ???????????? ??????? ????????, ??? ???? ?? ???? ???????? (?
?????? - 'she would be my grandfather' - ????. ?????.) ..."

I have separated the essential phrase from the above, as follows.

"???? ?? ? ???? ??????? ???? ???????????? ??????? ????????, ??? ???? ??
???? ????????."

If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask.

Search strategy:

Google search on: grandmother "be my grandfather"
