When Homer and Marge hold a party and the Van Houtens are invited it turns out to be a disaster. Luann announces that she wants to divorce Kirk. Homer laughs at the idea that this will ever happen to him. But soon he realizes that he has been taking his marriage for granted. Believing that Marge needs a fresh start, Homer files for divorce. However, it turns out to be a second marriage. Homer sets up a surprise party for the marriage in the living room. Homer asks Marge to marry him for the second time, she accepts. Kirk feels this is the time to ask Luan to re-marry him, but she refuses.

Memorable quotes

Bart: If you really wanted us to be neater, you'd serve us out of one long bowl.
Marge: You're talking about a trough. We're not going to eat from a trough. And another thing, it's only 5:15. Why are you in your underwear?
Bart: Hey, this ain't the Ritz.

Otto: (outside Stoner's Pot Palace) Man, that is flagrant false advertising!

Marge: Are you ready?
Homer: (in his underwear) Just gotta put my shoes on!
Marge: The only thing I asked you to do for this party was put on clothes, and you didn't do it.

Bart: Hello, I'm Doctor Hibbert. I'm afraid I'm going to have to amputate... your butt.

Marge: Homer, is this the way you pictured married life?
Homer: Yeah, pretty much. Except we drove around in a van solving mysteries.

Kirk: You're letting me go?
Manager: Kirk, crackers are a family food, happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.
Kirk: So that's it after twenty years? "So long, good luck"?
Manager: I don't recall saying "good luck".

Homer: Marge, will you marry me?
Marge: Why? Am I pregnant?

Reverend Lovejoy: I will now read the special vows which Homer has prepared for this occasion. Do you, Marge, take Homer, in richness and in poorness? Poorness is underlined. In impotence and in potence? In quiet solitude or blasting across the alkali flats in a jet-power, monkey navigated... and it goes on like this.
