Apu loses his job at the Kwik-E-Mart after Homer eats a hotdog unsuitable for purchasing. As an apology to Homer, Apu becomes his personal chef and valet, moving into the house. The actor James Woods replaces Apu at the convenience store. Apu is struggling to come to terms with the situation, and realises that he needs the Kwik-E-Mart in his life. So he goes on a journey to the world's first Kwik-E-Mart, high up in the hills of India. Homer comes along with him, and ends up ruining the chance for Apu to have his store back. He returns to Springfield as miserable as ever, but when he saves James Woods' life after a failed robbery, he eventually gets his job back.
