“Havana Wild Weekend” Episode Tie-In Walkthrough: Cuban Midlife Crisis and Cultural Appropriation

A new episode is coming Sunday, with the Simpsons going to Cuba, get a glimpse of the episode right now in the new Episode Tie-In right after the jump with its walkthrough!

Cuban Midlife Crisis Pt. 1

Auto starts

Marge: Is everything all right, Homie? You have that “I-ate-everything-in-the-fridge” sad look, but there’s still food in the fridge.
Homer: I’ve got those things Lisa plays on her sax.
Marge: The blues?
Homer: No, the keys. Keys to the same sucky car I’ve been driving for 20 years.
Homer: It doesn’t even have a brand. There comes a time in a man’s life when he wants to drive a brand-name car.
Marge: We can’t afford a new car, but maybe you can boost your mood by fixing up your old car. In some cultures, men express themselves by personalizing their cars.
Homer: In my culture, men express themselves by not expressing themselves… then going nuts.

Task: Make Homer Fix Up His Car
Time: 30m
Location: Homer’s Car or Simpson House

Marge: Goodness, Homer, where did you find all those tubes?
Homer: Under the hood. There was a whole closet full of old junk in there.
Marge: Is it safe with all that stuff taken out?
Homer: Safer than ever, since it doesn’t go. Time to get a new car!

Cuban Midlife Crisis Pt. 2

Homer starts

Homer: Dad, I need your help.
Grampa: If it’s women trouble, there ain’t nothing that can’t be fixed with a Mexican divorce. Oaxaca’s the fastest, Jalisco’s the cheapest, and Acapulco’ll throw in another wedding.
Homer: No, I need your help picking out a car. All I know about them is how to hire people to drive you around in them using your phone.
Grampa: You got it! Whatcha looking for — pushrod V-8, Edelbrock cylinder heads, four-piston brakes?
Homer: Brakes, definitely. And a motor. And one of those cup-holders that can hold a big cup or a little cup. That’s a must. Although I’d settle for big-cup-only.
Grampa: I’ll take it from here, son.

Task: Make Homer List Out Required Features
Time: 30m
Location: Retirement Castle or Simpson House
If the user has Grampa: Task: Make Grampa Scour the Classifieds
Time: 30m
Location: Retirement Castle or Simpson House

Homer: It only has 1,958 miles, that’s amazing!
Grampa: That’s the model year, ya ninny.
Homer: I wondered why someone from the year 500,000 was selling their car so cheap. Figured it was the rise of the robots or whatever.

Cuban Midlife Crisis Pt. 3

Homer starts

Homer: I can’t drive this old hunk of junk. My investors will lose confidence in my dinosaur theme park before we splice gene one!
Grampa: That’s why we’re going to fix it up. Okay, first we need to read the manual, then we need to make a checklist…
Homer: Ugh! Working on a car should be manly, like binge-watching a TV show or eating a giant sandwich. This is like homework.
Lisa: Did somebody say homework?
Homer: I did. Did somebody say binge watching TV and eating a giant sandwich?
Lisa: You did.
Homer: And I’m off!

Task: Make Lisa Fix Up the Car
Time: 3h
Location: 1958 Car
If the user has Grampa: Task: Make Grampa Fix Up the Car
Time: 3h
Location: 1958 Car
Task: Make Homer Eat a Giant Sandwich
Time: 6s
Location: Simpson House

Homer: I don’t remember this unsightly blemish.
Grampa: That’s your reflection in the hand-buffed wax, idjit.
Homer: My reflection looks fat! Can you buff me out — or at least buff me more buff?
Grampa: You don’t deserve a beaut like this!
Homer: Deserving is un-American. Make with the keys, old timer.

Cuban Midlife Crisis Pt. 4

Homer starts

Homer: You know what, Dad? As a sign of thanks for fixing up this car, and picking it out, and unknowingly letting me pay for it with your credit card… I want you to have it!
Grampa: Really?! That’s the nicest, and quite possibly only nice, thing you’ve ever done for me.
Grampa: And to show you my appreciation for your appreciation, I’m going to let you take her on her maiden spin.
Grampa: Now treat her like a lady — open her door, push back her seat, and go to town in her!
System Message: Tune in this Sunday at 8/7c on FOX to see Grampa get his groove back!

Task: Make Homer Make Vroom-Vroom Sounds
Time: 30m
Location: Pristine 1958 Car

Cuban Midlife Crisis Pt. 5

Auto starts

Grampa: You ruined the car without leaving the driveway!
Homer: Like you were going to do any better with it. You’re old!
System Message: Swap back and forth between both versions of the 1958 Car!
Grampa: This car makes me feel young again — young like a baby. I need a nap.

Task: Reach Level 19 and Build the Retirement Castle
Task: Make Grampa Ogle the Chassis
Time: 4h
Location: 1958 Car

If you own Bumblebee Man, a new small quest starts if you buy Havana Private Home.

A quick note: Cletus can do the job too, though it’s not premium.

Cultural Appropriation

Auto starts

Bumblebee Man: Ay, ay, ay! Estoy tiredo!
Bumblebee Man: Necesito una siesta!
Database: Overlooking that one of those words is not actually Spanish, I’d like to point out that you’re not, in fact, Cuban.
Bumblebee Man: Astute observation. But there aren’t actually any Cubans in town. I’m the closest thing available. Just roll with it, okay?

Task: Make Bumblebee Man Have a Siesta
Time: 12h
Location: Havana Private Home
