Added DiffLines:

* WriterOnBoard: Kevin Smith wrote the scene of the Chewley's Gum representative turning everyone in the store against Dante when he, himself, was strongly against smoking. Ironically, smoking all those cigarettes while playing Silent Bob turned him into a chain smoker.

* NeverMyFault: Dante is quick to blame all of his life's problems on everyone else without considering if or how he can improve them. He tells Randal that he's "not the kind of person who disrupts things so he can shit comfortably." This end up being the first thing Randal [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech blasts him for]] when he can't take any more of Dante's self-pity.

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Randal delivers a great one at the end of ''Clerks'', aimed straight at Dante, who's spent most of the day {{Wangst}}ing, as well as a little for himself as well. The full quote is on [[{{TheReasonYouSuckSpeech/Film}} the trope's page]].

to:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: The second-to-last scene has Dante and Randal delivers a great one at the end exchanging these. Dante blasts Randal for his irresponsibility and (supposedly) getting him into trouble with his antics. Then, when he can't take any more of ''Clerks'', aimed straight at Dante, who's spent most of the day Dante's {{Wangst}}ing, as well as Randal fires back with a little ''epic'' one about how much of an asshole he is for himself as well. The full quote is on [[{{TheReasonYouSuckSpeech/Film}} being even ''more'' irresponsible and [[NeverMyFault then blaming the trope's page]].consequences on everyone else]], eventually concluding that [[NotSoAboveItAll the two of them are idiots regardless]] because [[SmallNameBigEgo they look down on their customers from their high-and-mighty positions as store clerks]].

Added DiffLines:

* BlandNameProduct: Zigzagged. Some brands have been covered up, like "Dave's Fruit Pies" instead of Hostess. And sometimes real brands are used, like Gatorade. During the conversation about the egg guy, the female customer briefly mentions "Food City", presumably the in-universe equivalent to real NYC-area grocery co-op chain Foodtown (which had a lot more stores then compared to now- an accounting scandal closed one franchise, and another franchise eventually became part of Stop and Shop).

** Jay's denial about dealing drugs in front of the store
---> '''Dante''': How many times have I told you not to be dealing in front of the store?
---> '''Jay''': I'm not dealin', man. What you talkin' about?
---> '''Burner''': Hey, you got anything, man?
---> '''Jay''': Yeah, what you want?

The film is about a day in the life of a pair of friends, Dante Hicks and Randal Graves, working at Quick Stop and RST Video, respectively. Another group of friends, Jay and Silent Bob, deal drugs and hang out around Quick Stop. Dante is forced to come to work, although he wasn't supposed to be there that day (as he will constantly remind you.)
