Alley’s Well that Ends Well

sidebar_moeHey, look! There’s a new store in town. And it sells… bowling supplies.
sidebar_moeBecause there’s a lot of bowling-supplies-only stores in the real world, right?
sidebar_moeAre we completely abandoning the idea that Springfield is IN ANY WAY based on real life? Is that what we’re doing?
Homer HeadWell, Alley McBalls’ name IS a lame pun on a briefly-popular, late-1990s TV dramedy. That’s pretty realistic, right?
sidebar_moeI give up. Just tell us what mission we’re supposed to do at “Alley McBalls,” and we’ll do it.
sidebar_moeUnless, of course, we pass out from laughing at that HILARIOUS NAME.
Homer HeadWell, it says we’re supposed to make ten bowlers “Fight for Free Stuff.” But Moe, if you don’t want to–
sidebar_moeNo, I’m sick of caring! Let’s just do this!
sidebar_moeThen afterwards, maybe I’ll head over to “Boston Eagle” to buy some eagle food to feed my pet eagle.
sidebar_moeThat’s all they sell there. It’s also very realistic.
sidebar_moeTHEN… it’s over to “Touched by an Angel Food Cake.” Guess what they sell?
Homer HeadMoe, don’t do this…
sidebar_moeANGEL FOOD CAKE MIX AND NOTHING ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marge Point Pt. 1

Marge starts

Marge HeadHow come I’m never included in all these fun things that happen in Springfield?
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconWell, you were the last family member to appear in the game.
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconWe have to structure quests so that new players don’t see you before they’ve unlocked you.
Marge HeadSo I’m being hamstrung by creative decisions we made years ago, when we didn’t think this game would even last a month?
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconUh…
70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconYou know what might pick you up, Mom? If you found a sports-y thing to do of your own.
Marge HeadOn it!

Task: Make Tennis Marge Search the Basement for a Hobby

70px-Tapped_Out_Lisa_IconCan’t. Super busy delivering exposition for all the other quests around here.

On “Ask Apu to Play Tennis” job start:

sidebar_marge_tennisHey, Apu! Care for a game of tennis?
sidebar_apuI would love to, but I am saddled with back-to-back-to-back 24-hour shifts at the Kwik-E-Mart.
sidebar_apuMy time is simply not my own.
sidebar_apuAnd how I thank the “funny” people behind this game for introducing that 168-hour shift mission. Great stuff, guys!!

On “Ask Homer to Play Tennis” job start:

sidebar_marge_tennisHomie, you think you can set aside some time for tennis with your beloved?
Homer HeadI’d love to, sweetie. But as usual I’ve got like a thousand missions to set up.
Homer HeadSee, I started this new thing called “Tap Ball”. And whenever anyone new gets involved, I have to be part of their story.
sidebar_marge_tennisOh. Okay, well maybe Lisa has some spare time to play Tennis.
Homer Head*sigh* You just don’t understand how it works around here, do you?

On all jobs complete:

sidebar_marge_tennisEveryone is so busy in this town, how are two people supposed to do something together?

Marge Point Pt. 4

Marge starts

sidebar_marge_tennisWell, I guess I’m stuck doing a solo mission. I suppose I could practice tennis for 4 hours.

unlock_comicbookguy_kungfu
Four Fingers of Death Pt. 1

Comic Book Guy starts

Bart head iconHey, look, everybody! It’s the Kung Fu Panda!
sidebar_comicbookguyJudge me by my girth, do you? You are a foolish child, unwise in the ways of gongfu.
sidebar_comicbookguyI have devoted years to studying the eldritch secrets of the East, learning from the greatest masters:
sidebar_comicbookguyBruce Lee, Jackie Chan, Keanu Reeves in “The Matrix,” Chris Farley in “Beverly Hills Ninja…”
sidebar_comicbookguy…and, yes, the aforementioned Kung Fu Panda. Seriously, I know he’s a cartoon, but the dude knows his stuff.
sidebar_comicbookguyI can teach you much, if you would but listen.

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Teach Kung Fu
Time: 8h
Location: Community Center or Android’s Dungeon
Task: Make Bart Attend Kung Fu Class
Time: 1h
Location: Community Center or Android’s Dungeon

sidebar_comicbookguyA true Master can erect an impenetrable defense. I shall demonstrate. Please, young Bart, attack me however you like.
sidebar_comicbookguyOof!
sidebar_comicbookguyGah! Let go of the pony tail!
sidebar_comicbookguyYowza! Right in the chi!

Four Fingers of Death Pt. 2

Comic Book Guy starts

sidebar_comicbookguyDefeated by a child! I have brought shame upon my dojo and upon my family, two entities that were none-too-crazy about me to begin with.
sidebar_comicbookguyClearly, I need further training.
sidebar_comicbookguyTo the couch!

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Binge Watch Kung Fu Movies
Time: 24h
Location: Android’s Dungeon

sidebar_comicbookguyAt last, the movies have revealed the weakness in my gongfu!
sidebar_comicbookguyWas I defeated because I can’t do a sit-up without the aid of a gantry crane? No! I merely lack a strong revenge motive!
sidebar_comicbookguyKumiko! I swear I will avenge your death at the hands of Bart Simpson!
sidebar_kumikoI’m not dead, my gigantic love.
sidebar_comicbookguyObviously! I’m only FANTASIZING that my wife is dead. It’s something all great husbands do.
sidebar_kumikoI was not aware of this, my strange, obese soul mate. Carry on.
sidebar_comicbookguyOh, why have I been cursed with a wonderful, living wife?!

Four Fingers of Death Pt. 3

Comic Book Guy starts

sidebar_comicbookguyMy otherwise regal body is not, I admit, ideally suited to the exertions of hand-to-hand combat.
sidebar_comicbookguyBeing struck by my fat-wrapped fists is like snuggling into a mountain of the softest eider down.
sidebar_comicbookguyBeing kicked by my legs is like… well, I can’t raise them more than six inches, so it’s irrelevant.
sidebar_comicbookguyBut I DO have something far more important — the cunning reflexes of a jungle cat.
sidebar_comicbookguyTherefore, I shall dedicate myself to mastering that most ancient of weapons…
Bart head iconNice nunchucks, you wad!
sidebar_comicbookguyThey are properly called “nunchaku!” A-doy!
Bart head iconYou just tied two Wii controllers end-to-end by the straps.
sidebar_comicbookguyTHEY STILL COUNT!
Bart head iconNo they don’t. Plastic nunchucks are no nunchucks at all, you dope.
sidebar_comicbookguyIt’s “nunchaku!” A-doy! A thousand times a-doy!

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Use Nunchaku
Time: 12h

Four Fingers of Death Pt. 4

Comic Book Guy starts

sidebar_comicbookguySoon I will face Bart Simpson in a fateful and deadly clash of martial arts grand masters.
sidebar_comicbookguyA little more practice, followed by a lengthy fast food crawl through Springfield’s Trans Fat District, and my body will be prepared.

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Practice Moves
Time: 4h

Four Fingers of Death Pt. 5

Comic Book Guy starts

sidebar_comicbookguyBart Simpson, I challenge you!
sidebar_comicbookguyStand and face me, if you be man enough, in the ultimate gongfu arena:
sidebar_comicbookguyA head-to-head battle in “Martial Arts Eviscerators 7: Entrails of Fury Edition!”
Bart head iconWait. You want to challenge me to a kung fu VIDEO GAME?
sidebar_comicbookguyNot my original plan. Let’s just say Krustyburger’s new “Bacon-wrapped Fish Taco Pizzaburger with Ranch Drizzles” is not easy on the digestive system.
sidebar_comicbookguyI’m in no shape to fight.
sidebar_comicbookguyBut enough talk. Choose your controller.

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Challenge His Rival
Time: 16h
Location: Android’s Dungeon

sidebar_comicbookguyYes! You are defeated, Bart Simpson! I have proven myself the master!
Bart head iconThe “X” button on this controller doesn’t work. And you were in “God Mode” the whole time.
sidebar_comicbookguyA true master makes full use of cheat codes. Let this be your first lesson, my pupil.
Bart head iconNot for nothing, “master,” but you really need to move around more. Your flab is growing into the couch.
sidebar_comicbookguyYes, I know.


If you unlocked Hank Scorpio, a small quest will start after completing Four Fingers of Death Pt. 5.


I Lava Good Fight Scene

Comic Book Guy starts

sidebar_comicbookguy*gasp* How have I never noticed this enormous volcano on the edge of town?
sidebar_comicbookguyWhat a perfect location for an underground lair.
sidebar_hankscorpioAlready taken, friend! Sorry about that. I know how rarely active volcanoes with an open floor plan come on the underground lair market.
sidebar_comicbookguyPerhaps I could leave you my card? In case you ever want to sell.
sidebar_hankscorpioYou know, that’s a great idea? Operation Vertumnus is entering Phase 3 any day now.
sidebar_hankscorpioIn a month or two, I’ll be pulling up stakes for the lifeless remains of San Francisco. If I can ever get the Desiccation Ray working!
sidebar_hankscorpioYou don’t happen to know anyone who has a metric ton of Carbon-12 Negative-Matrix Nightmare Crystals to unload, do you?
sidebar_comicbookguySadly, no.
sidebar_hankscorpioYeah, they’re hard to find. Messing up my whole supply chain. But no one said holding the planet for ransom has to be easy!
sidebar_hankscorpioAnyway, if all that pans out, I’d sure like to pass the volcano lair to someone who’ll give it the love it deserves.
sidebar_hankscorpioNow, I couldn’t help but notice you’re wearing a karate gi. What do you know about the martial arts, friend?
sidebar_comicbookguyEverything.
sidebar_hankscorpioDandy! How’d you like to train my fighting force? They don’t need to be any good, you understand.
sidebar_hankscorpioI just need them to run at the good guys and get mowed down while I escape in my Invisible Atomic Rocket Sled.

Task: Make Kung Fu Comic Book Guy Battle B-Movie Style
Time: 16h
Location: Volcano Lair
