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 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 forces Homer 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 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 soon tires of it when the town starts persecuting him for little things like having a mustache and leaving his mail box flag up halfway. When an unruly neighbor moves in, Homer begs Ned to leave the not-so-ideal town and return to Springfield.
