* DoWrongRight: The Kwik-E-Mart official chastises Apu, not for selling dangerously inedible stock (that was in fact the company's standard procedure), but that he failed to place the blame on a suitable scapegoat.

YMMV trope.
* RuleOfThree: When Apu and Homer met the owner of the Kwik-E-Mart chain to ask for Apu's job back, he said they'd only be allowed three questions. Apu only wants to ask one, but Homer wasted all of them asking if [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment that guy really owned the Kwik-E-Mart]]. [[WhatAnIdiot And the answers weren't enough for him]].

YMMV trope.
* TooDumbToLive and WhatAnIdiot: Homer ''still'' buys bad food from the Kwik-E-Mart even after he got sick from it twice. He even goes in and orders a hot dog immediatley after he saw the disgusting close-up of a hot dog that fell on the floor being put back on the rack.

This ''might'' be a {{callback}} to when Barney accidentally shot a woman after Homer slammed the door in his face on "Rosebud," but, considering how this series doesn't really care about continuity, it might have been an unseen incident.

* AllForNothing: Apu and Homer travel all the way to India, and from there several hundred miles, through mountain ranges, to find the first Kwik-E-Mart... and Homer blows Apu's chance of getting his job back.

* JustFollowingOrders: Apu's defence when confronted by a senior Kwik-E-Mart official. The man turns it around him by doing the exact same thing seconds later. * NoodleIncident: Barney has apparently killed someone by accident before, or at least thinks he has. * NotHelpingYourCase: The traditional form of apology in Apu's village involves slowly approaching someone with your arms outstretched. As Apu puts it, many have died needlessly because of it. ** Also, Apu when trying to defend his store's policies on TV.

* RiddleForTheAges: When James Woods was talking at the phone to his manager, he asked how his upcoming movie was the same if his character was retconned from a store clerk to an eskimo. He never learned the answer but whatever it was, Woods accepted it.
