The Simpson house is foreclosed upon after Homer uses the money from his home equity loan to host lavish Mardi Gras parties, and Ned buys it and becomes their landlord so they won't have to move, but being a landlord for a slobbish family like The Simpsons begins to take its toll on Ned.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: When Ned kicks the Simpsons out of their house, the other neighbours respond that their leaving is like Christmas to them. When Ned lets them move back in, everyone else on the street instantly puts their houses up for sale.
* BedSheetGhost: Bart does this when Homer tries to convince the news crew that the house is haunted. Bart claims to have died when his dad sat on him causing Homer to choke him.
* BungledSuicide: Homer was so upset about losing the house that he tried to hang himself in the backyard. Instead, the tree gives way because of his weight and it crushes his car.
* DisproportionateRetribution: An exhausted Ned refuses to go over to the Simpsons in the middle of the night to fix something after spending all day doing just that. The Simpsons become so angry that they complain about him to the media.
* ShoutOut:
** While living at the homeless shelter, Bart and Lisa were wearing ''[[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk Hulk]]'' shirts. Bart's was from "[[{{Film/Hulk}} The First Hulk Movie]]" and Lisa's was from "[[Film/TheIncredibleHulk The Second Hulk Movie]]".
** Also, Ned's would-be tenants had a dog named [[Creator/WhoopiGoldberg Woofi Goldberg]].
* TemptingFate: After the Simpsons were evicted, Homer drew comfort from the fact it wasn't raining. They then looked at the sky as if [[CueTheRain expecting it to rain]] just because Homer said it wasn't but then [[SubvertedTrope no rain came]].
* TookALevelInJerkass: Marge and Lisa when they along with the boys go to complain about Ned to the news because he wouldn't come over in the middle of the night to fix something, after spending all day yesterday doing just that..
