Four words: Homer is a jerk. He just ruined what could have been an excellent episode. It was as if the episode was all about him, and not Ned. The first bit of Homer's 'jerkiness' was when Rachel and Ned met again, and he was whispering things like "oh, she wants to go for coffee!" very loudly to Ned. Then there was Homer hanging from Ned's window, watching him.
Next, Ned wanted to build a theme park, and it was taking up a lot of Homer's time - he kept looking at his watch. Actually, this was quite funny, which just goes to show how Homer being a jerk can be good if used at the right time.
There were many good bits in this episode: Ned's obsession with Maude; Homer and Bart's 'sorting' machine; and the appearance of Patches & Violet.
The ending, although ruined by Homer's jerkiness, was at least sane and not completely off the wall like most endings these days.
Homer sort of ruined this episode but it was still good.
AMAZING EPISIODE!! I love CBGS "vision" and the gas being worse gag.
