Springfield Heights expands with some new buildings, with the return of Gil getting ready to do some rebates! Join us right after the jump for the 2nd part of the walkthrough of the premium of the Monty Burns’ Fleeing Circus tie-in!
Homer: Ooh! An exclusive beach hideaway.
Bart: That beach body of yours needs to be hidden away.
Homer: Your body shaming has no effect on a man who will soon be drunk on Mai Tais and swimming with his dolphin pals.
Bart: The dolphins don’t want to swim with you. Your leaking body oils attract sharks.
Homer: I like to think it’s attracting more friends.
Corporate Kickbacks Intro
Quimby: The city is broke, people! We are hemorrhaging money and need cash fast, or we’ll all be selling our likeness to T-shirt companies. But Moe, not you.
Mr. Burns: I could pull the city up by its bootstraps…
Lisa: No! We will not turn to you again to solve our financial crises.
Gil: You could all turn to Gil! Mostly ’cause I lost that vertebrae in my spine that makes ME able to turn to YOU.
Corporate Kickbacks Wave 1
Gil: Big Business to the rescue! Stock your Springfield with corporate juggernauts and get donuts back with every purchase. Ha-cha-cha!
Quimby: When does ‘er, the traditional political “palm greasing” come into play?
Gil: Every franchise contract comes with a standard government bribe.
Quimby: That is very comforting.
Gil: Oh, boy! This could be Gil’s biggest break since both my thumbs!
Gil: Oh, come on! Now the bank is gonna repossess the flaps on my cardboard box.
It gets chilly without the flaps…
Marge: Lenny, you live here?
Lenny: Sure do! Want the grand tour?
Lenny: Okay. Stand still and turn your head. You just took the grand tour.
Task: Make Marge Tour Lenny’s Condo
Location: Springfielde Glenne Condos
Lenny: So, I sleep in this corner, I eat in that one, and over there, that’s my entertainment corner.
Marge: That’s only three corners.
Lenny: That’s why rent is so cheap.
On October 1st, the 2nd wave starts, with Gil showing up again.
Corporate Kickbacks Wave 2
Gil: Ol’ Gil’s back with a brink-of-bankruptcy bookstore! Get bargain basement prices on this dying medium.
Skinner: Books will always have a place in yard sale milk crates and on the shelves of penniless schools like ours.
Gil: A sale! At this rate, I’ll be eatin’ broken hotdogs and bathing in briny hotdog water by Sunday night!
Gil: Just you wait. Ol’ Gil will have the last laugh when you wind up on the street with him. And I’ve got the best spot out there – under a nice shady tree and out of the mud puddle splash zone.
Homer: Hey, they have ebooks on paper now!
Marge: It’s called a book, Homer. That’s how people used to read.
Homer: Uggh! Turning two hundred pages?! I’m just one man, Marge.
Task: Make Marge Peruse Joke Titles
Squeaky Voice Teen: Sir, please be careful with your coffee around the books.
Homer: Why sell coffee and books in the same place anyway? Next you’ll be telling me they sell gasoline alongside cigarettes.
Squeaky Voice Teen: Actually, service stations do.
Homer: Amazing! This world is passing me by.
