Synopsis by Mark Deming
Homer Simpson (voice of Dan Castellaneta) makes his regular daily stop at the Kwik-E-Mart to discover they're having a sale on luncheon meat. Homer immediately buys the meat and wolfs it down, only to discover Apu (voice of Hank Azaria) was selling the meat cheaply because it was spoiled and out of date. Homer gets terribly sick, and at the urging of his daughter Lisa (voice of Yeardley Smith), he takes part in a TV news program's undercover investigation. Apu's underhanded back-dating practices are revealed, and he loses his longtime job at the Kwik-E-Mart. After actor James Woods takes over Apu's job as he researches a film role, Apu moves into the Simpson home to make amends for poisoning Homer. While Apu becomes a part of the family, the Kwik-E-Mart is in his blood, and so he journeys to India (with Homer in tow) to appeal his case with the spiritually enlightened president of the Kwik-E-Mart corporation. "Homer and Apu" first aired on February 10, 1994.
