This episode had been written for Michael Caine
as the guest star, the joke being that Caine's propensity for appearing in anything also included working in the Kwik-E-Mart. When Caine turned down the offer, the role was rewritten for James Woods
with the joke that he was working at the Kwik-E-Mart because he was researching a role. See more

Lose yourself... yeah... yeah! Okay, let's try this again. You be you, and I'll be me.
Hey! Don't... jerk around with me buddy.
