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.

When Homer answers the door, Apu comes at him with his hands stretched out, causing a terrified scream from Homer. After the commercial break, it turns out that Apu was merely doing an Indian forgiveness custom and wasn't intending to choke Homer.
