Country on the Inside Pt. 1
Lurleen triggers
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_IconThere was a time when singing at the Beer-N-Brawl was the highlight of my day.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_IconNow I’m just hoping one of those beer bottles being thrown at my head will knock me out of this funk.
Cletus Icon Less talkin’, more singin’!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I’m too depressed to sing the blues. If only there was an even sadder way to express myself.
Homer Head How about poetry?
Homer Head Those guys seem pretty depressed. Probably from their lack of job prospects and general public disrespect.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Nah, Jewel has said all there needs to be said in verse.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Hey, what about grunge music? It makes you frown just by saying it.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Grunge. Grunge. Makes me feel like an unclean toilet.
Homer Head I guess the nineties are having a comeback.
Homer Head Plus you can keep wearing all your plaid shirts from your country days.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Then it’s settled. I’m starting a grunge band. But first I need to find some band mates.
Cletus Icon How you fixin’ to do that?
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Simple – Craigslist.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I’ll post an ad for a barbecue pit, buy it, throw a barbecue, and hope some potential band mates show up.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon It’s fool proof!

Task: Build Barbecue Pit and Make Lurleen Barbecue Some Roadkill (24h, Barbecue Pit)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Homer Head Boy, Lurleen. This is some of the best grilled mystery meat I’ve ever had.
Homer Head And I buy my meat from the Kwik-E-Mart.
Apu Head Our meat is 100% accounted for, 90% of the time.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Homer, it’s so good to see you. With this new band starting up, it would be great to have a manager again.
Homer Head I DO have experience in both the fields of band management and grunge music.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Wow! You are as qualified as you are handsome.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Are you sure Marge will be OK with it?
Homer Head Of COURSE she’ll be OK with it.
Homer Head Long hours on the road, tearful soulful music driving us together… what could she possibly complain about?
Marge Head Grrrrr…
Smithers Head I’d love to play percussion in your ensemble, as long as it doesn’t interfere with my job. I work 9am to 9am.
70px-Tapped_Out_Willie_Icon Room for one more? I’ve always had a wee soft spot for grunge.
70px-Tapped_Out_Willie_Icon Willie ain’t an open book.
Homer Head Sounds like you’ve got yourself a band! I’m so happy!
Homer Head But you’re also out of potato salad, so I don’t really know how to feel.

Country on the Inside Pt. 2
Homer triggers
Homer Head Grunge band? Check.
Homer Head Ace manager? Check.
Homer Head Sexy lead singer? Check.
Homer Head Franz Kafka’s nationality? Czech!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon So what do we do now, Homer?
Homer Head First order of business – free beer at the Beer-N-Brawl!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon And the band will play?
Homer Head Oh, right. You should probably play a show as well. I’m sure we can squeeze you in somewhere.

Task: Make Lurleen Perform a Gig (12h, Beer-N-Brawl)
Task: Make Springfielders Drink at Beer-N-Brawl (x10) (6h, Beer-N-Brawl)

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Homer Head Great news – I’ve brought your band into the twenty first century!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon With what? A social media campaign? ViewTube videos? Viral marketing?
Homer Head Even better. I strapped a megaphone to the roof of my car.
Homer Head Listen up! Everyone get to the Beer-N-Brawl for free beer!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Uh, and to listen to my new grunge band: Forever Alone!
Homer Head Please don’t interrupt me when I’m megaphoning.
Homer Head Free beer!

Country on the Inside Pt. 3
Marge triggers
Marge Head Homer, I don’t want to seem like the jealous wife –
Marge Head But please stop spending time with women other than me.
Homer Head Is this about Princess Kashmir and her proposed blimp trip?
Marge Head What? No!
Homer Head Well then forget I said that.
Homer Head Also, on an unrelated note, do you have any spare helium or hydrogen?
Marge Head It’s about Lurleen – I don’t want you hanging around with that trollop.
Homer Head Marge, there’s nothing to be afraid of.
Homer Head It’s just me, music, women, money, endless booze, and a live-like-there’s-no-tomorrow attitude.
Marge Head If you won’t listen to reason, I’ll have to confront Lurleen directly…by writing an anonymous article that attacks her character.
Homer Head Mention that there’s free beer at the Beer-N-Brawl.

Task: Make Marge Write a Smear Article (24h, Simpsons House)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon This article in Smear magazine says my songs were stolen from Sadgasm!
Homer Head Hey, that’s my old band!
Homer Head I didn’t know anyone still remembered us.
Homer Head No one did on the VH1 special “Try Not To Remember The 1990’s”.
55px-Tapped_Out_Kent_Brockman_Icon This is Kent Brockman ambushing you live from a bush. How does it feel to be a fraud?
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon We’re not frauds! We didn’t steal ANY songs!
Homer Head I dunno, that’s not what this article quotes me as saying…
55px-Tapped_Out_Kent_Brockman_Icon Please don’t fight without the cameras rolling, otherwise we’re just going to make you do it again.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon We’re not fighting! I didn’t do anything wrong.
Homer Head That’s what they all say. But then we edit, edit, edit and bingo: guilty confession!

Country on the Inside Pt. 4
Marge triggers
Marge Head That article was supposed to make Lurleen LESS popular.
Marge Head Now the press is all over her and there’s talk of a Sadgasm reunion tour.
Marge Head I need a stiff drink! One cranberry juice please.
Marge Head Homer can’t wear flannel nowadays! Whenever he lies down, ants attack him thinking he’s a picnic blanket.
Moe Head Could also be the bits of sandwich he’s always got stuck to his cheeks.
Moe Head God I miss Homer.
Moe Head Without those sandwich bits, the rats have started to go after the smaller customers.
Moe Head I lost three kids with fake IDs that way.
Marge Head Well, if the printed page didn’t destroy her career, what will?
Moe Head You’re thinking too small! We need to make a slanderous documentary that exposes all of Lurleen Lumpkins’s dark secrets.
Moe Head I’ve been going through her trash so I know a few of them already.
Marge Head But we just came up with this idea now! How did you know to start going through her trash?
Moe Head Look, do you want Lurleen’s dark secrets or not?
Marge Head I want them. I want them strewn all over town like dirty laundry.
Marge Head Which reminds me I’ve got a flannel shirt covered in ants I have to wash.

Task: Make Moe do a Slanderous Documentary on Lurleen (1d 12h, Channel 6)
Task: Make Marge Do a Load of Laundry (1d 12h, Simpsons Home)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Homer Head Wow. I had no idea you had such a dark and twisted past, Lurleen!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I do not! That movie was full of lies and slander!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon It’s like Hollywood doesn’t have any respect for the truth!
Cletus Icon You take that back about Hollywood. My cousin was the pig from Babe.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Homer, that bit about my previous managers all dying of mysterious causes was completely false.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I just marry them and then they leave me.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon By way of coffin.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon You have to believe me.
Homer Head I don’t know. That movie might not have had facts, or accurate sources, or evidence, but it did have a CG robot!

Country on the Inside Pt. 5
Lurleen triggers
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon This grunge business isn’t getting me out of my depression like I thought it would.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Apparently being sad all the time doesn’t make you happy.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I miss the country lifestyle – the cowboy boots hiding switch blades, the big trucks, the starry skies, the women with large hairdos hiding switchblades.
Homer Head But you’re a grunge natural!
Homer Head It’s like every crowd’s energy is lower than the last.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I can’t live like this.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I need open air, belt buckles in the shape of states, and jello being counted as a salad.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I’m going back to singing country songs all alone.
Homer Head Does that mean no more free beer at the Beer -N- Brawl…?
Homer Head I quit!

Task: Make Lurleen Play Country Guitar (12h)
Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Marge Head I’m sorry Lurleen. I realize now that I was just being a jealous housewife.
Marge Head I spread all those lies so that you’d fall from grace.
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Oh, your jealousy was very much justified. I made several passes at Homer, but he didn’t understand a single one of them.
Homer Head She kept wanting me to go back to her hotel room, but why eat out of a mini-fridge when you can eat out of a normal fridge?
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon I guess I lost a man I never had, and a career I never fully understood. I also lost thirty-five cents the other day.
Marge Head Lurleen, that’s the makings of a great country song!
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon About the thirty-five cents? I know.
Marge Head Well, is there anything we can do to help?
Tapped_Out_Lurleen_Icon Buy my CD?
Marge Head Ummm… no.

And this is it. Short questline, which is kinda the norm recently with EA. Tune up tomorrow at 8 am GMT for a shiny New Year’s Eve mini-questline with a great return! Happy holidays and tapping!

  1. The make moe do a documentary won’t unlock


    1. Is moe and desmond free of task?


  2. I thought it was strange that Moe is the only adult that doesn’t have the “Make Springfielders Drink at Beer-N-Brawl” task. I guess he’s too busy serving minors at Moe’s or going through Lurleen’s trash?
