“Home Away from Homer” is the twentieth episode of Season 16. The episode aired on May 15, 2005. Jason Bateman guest stars in this episode as himself.


Ned hasn't been doing too well at the Leftorium ever since LeftMart opened, so Marge suggests that he rent out one of his rooms, which he does, to two girls from the local community college. However, the two girls have a sideline of their own; a webcam of their bedroom ( - and, at the time the episode first aired, the link worked, pointing to a site with drawings of the two girls), which soon becomes a town hit. When Marge finds out, she drags Homer (literally, by the ear) to Ned, who discovers the truth and realizes that he can't trust anybody in Springfield any more. There is one place he can go; Humbleton, Pennsylvania, the home of the Humble Figurines that he collects.[1]

Full StoryEdit

Home Away from Homer
Lisa is barefoot in her bedroom listening to a radio at Sunday morning. A lady broadcaster mentions that she is giving away free tickets to a movie called 'Kosova Autumn '. The lady was about to mention a fake name, until Lisa rang (which shocked her) Ned was looking after Maggie while the Simpson family was at the Limited Appeal Theatre . He showed her his doll collection. Over 300 of his dolls were destroyed (thanks to Homer) Marge returns to pick up Maggie, and wishes to give money to him. However, he rejects the offer. But after financial trouble inspires Ned to rent his rumpus room to a pair of college aged women. While searching the internet, Bart and Milhouse discover the two women are running a soft-core web cam from their room without Ned knowing a bit about the web cam. Homer quickly learns of the activities and spreads word of hot women and his ignorant neighbor. When Marge discovers that the two women are at Flanders house, she forces Homer (by dragging him to Ned at his front door) to inform Ned of the charade. Ned becomes the laughing stock of Springfield. Homer later feels guilty and arrives at Ned’s front door equipped with a gift basket full of cookies, only to find the Flanders’ have moved to their dream town, “Humbleton, PA – Home of the Humble Figurines”. A place were every other citizen is quite literally chubby and apple cheeked, originally finding the place to be great, Ned, Rod & Todd soon get tired of it when the town starts persecuting him for little things like having a moustache and leaving his mail box flag up halfway. When an unruly neighbor moves in to Springfield and starts to pick on Homer, he begs Ned to leave the not-so-ideal town and return to Springfield.
