* BackingAwaySlowly: Homer does this when he tries to return the dented keg and witnesses Apu and the squishee delivery girl having sex in the stockroom.

He does this again in the last shot of the episode when Apu and Manjula reconcile and have sex. This time, he hops backwards on a ladder, presumably all the way home.
