I’ve learned my lesson: a mountain of sugar is too much for one man. It’s clear now why God portions it out in those tiny packets, and why he lives of a plantation in Hawaii.— Homer

Another great episode! Things are looking up for The Simpsons! Pretty much everything in this episode was funny.
The episode starts with a fight over a monopoly game. One thing I am pleased about (being the maintainer of the "D'oh!" list) is that Homer actually said "D'oh!" in this episode, because he hasn't said it for a long while. The button on the phone was a good gag - it's also referred to in a later episode.
Anyway, the Simpsons get a social worker, who helps them to function as a family again. The best bits in this part were the wolves and cougars working together, and then getting drunk.
After this, the family return home to find Homer's Las Vegas wife (from "Viva Ned Flanders," Season 10). Then the episode gets even funnier, with great scenes from Ned. Also, Ginger making Homer a sandwich was great.
This episode was surprisingly funny. I thought it would be one of those lame "repeated ideas" episodes, but it turned out okay!
A solid episode
