Not stupid at all.

Outside of the grub shell:

 root medulla ~]# echo $SHELL
 /bin/bash

Inside of the grub shell:

 root medulla ~]# grub
 Probing devices to guess BIOS drives. This may take a long time.


     GNU GRUB  version 0.97  (640K lower / 3072K upper memory)

  [ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported.  For the first word, TAB
    lists possible command completions.  Anywhere else TAB lists the possible
    completions of a device/filename.]
 grub> echo $SHELL
 echo $SHELL

 Error 27: Unrecognized command
 grub> quit
 quit
 [root medulla ~]#

Also, the commandline works properly outside of grub.
