* InelegantBlubbering: After Homer decides to be nicer, he lets Marge have the last pork chop at dinner. Marge, who apparently has waited years for Homer to offer that, starts crying tears of joy and eats the chop with her bare hands. While she's doing this Marge gushes over how good Homer's thoughtfulness tastes. Homer, and the kids, are understandably creeped out by Marge's blubbering.

When Carl gives Homer a DVD player and the first season of ''MagnumPI'', Homer forgets that he is Lenny’s “Secret Santa”, so he hastily gives him Certs. Also, Mr. Burns gives everyone a caferteria voucher as a Christmas bonus, except Homer, who gets a Joe [=DiMaggio=] baseball card (which, him being Burns, believes is worthless - Burns is so outdated he thinks [=DiMaggio=] is a rookie and Homer's surprise was about the fact they "started" to allow ethnics in the big leagues)). Homer trades it in to Comic Book Guy, who gives him everything in his register. With this small fortune, the Simpsons go Christmas shopping and Homer promoses to spend his money on a huge Christmas tree, but instead squanders it on a personalized talking astrolabe. When his family finds out, they call him out on his selfish act, with Marge saying that he doesn't care about anybody but himself. What’s worse is that Homer can’t return the astrolabe as the astrolabe itself reminded him after Homer was called out for his selfishness.

* RightBehindMe: To give an example of somebody more selfish than him, Homer started describing Mr. Burns, who overheard him. [[SubvertedTrope Fortunately]], Burns thought Homer was talking of a woman named Kathy, who ''does'' look like Burns except for the fact she's a woman.
