: The interviews for a job goes awry as the interviewees are too weird or not good enough.
- Straight: Bob holds auditions for someone to be his foil. Hilarity Ensues as people auditioning are too quirky for his tastes.
- Exaggerated: Bob gets a succession of mental patients, criminals fresh out of prison, and generally terrifying people.
- Downplayed: A few people have some odd features or tics but nothing outlandish.
- Justified: Bob (or Tom!) holds a serious audition, but due to a miscommunication ends up interviewing people who think they're auditioning for something else entirely.
- Inverted: Bob goes to thousands of job interviews, but his quirkiness gets him rejected from all of his jobs.
- Double Subverted: ...until Alice shows her true quirky colors
- Parodied: It turns out all the interviewees are sitting at one long table and have only said one sentence each, and even better, they're on some kind of conveyor belt.
- Zig Zagged: They're only given ten seconds, and a lot seem quirky and unsuited - but the job calls for a quirky character and they're all well suited. They get called back for proper interviews with a higher boss, and then their quirkiness is their undoing.
- Averted: No one is quirky.
- Enforced: ???
- Lampshaded: "I'm going to be saying "Next!" a lot, will I?"
- Invoked: Bob tells each interviewee they only have five/ten/thirty seconds for their interview.
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: Bob decides that instead of holding auditions, he asks his buddy Alex to be his foil.
- Discussed: ???
- Conversed: ???
- A handful of the interviewees were threatening Bob that if he rejects them, they will kill him.
- The interviewing process was long, expensive, and never managed to rake in what Bob wanted.
- Reconstructed: Bob then holds auditions for a bodyguard and it still goes awry.
