Tapped Out Premium Walkthrough: Manjula

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Level 39 update finally brought Apu’s wife Manjula into TSTO!  Manjula is a fun addition to TSTO and comes with a great questline…that makes use of Apu and her two visible decorations.

Manjula comes to us via Apu’s Apartment, for 160 donuts, and while we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ (quick walkthrough) up for a little while (check out Turbo Tappin’ Manjula here) the dialogue was so much fun we figured now would be a good time to show you all the full dialogue as well.  So in case there was anything you missed when playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you purchase Manjula…here’s your chance to catch all of the humor!

Let’s get this show on the road shall we?


A Love Embiggened Pt. 1
Apu starts

Apu: Manjula! My beautiful yet critical wife! You have finally returned to me!
Manjula: Oh Apu! I have missed you so! Have you gained weight?
Apu: Ah, finally my neck feels at home with you breathing down it.
Manjula: Where are the children? Are they still eight of them?
Apu: You’ll pleased to know I didn’t lose a single one!  For more than 48 hours…Plus we even briefly had nine babies, before I realized Hans Moleman was scamming me for free formula.

A Love Embiggened Pt. 2
Apu starts

Apu: There is something I must get off my chest, Manjula, other than this surprisingly heavy infant.
Manjula: You know you may tell me anything, my dear husband. And I will punish you accordingly.
Apu: Well, Manjula. While you were gone… I have felt certain …urges.
Manjula: Oh no.
Apu: Well, as you know, every man has needs. Needs that cannot be served when his wife is away.
Manjula: Oh No!
Apu: I would like you to take care of the octuplets so I can finally get work done at the Kwik-E-Mart.
Manjula: Oh thank god! I thought I was going to have to make you sleep on the couch for cheating.  Instead you can sleep on the couch for worrying me.

A Love Embiggened Pt. 3
Manjula starts

Manjula: Apu, I just got back and already you are spending all your time at work. I want a chance to reconnect as a couple.
Apu: I don’t spend all my time at work – occasionally I relax in the Brown House.
Manjula: Who is this Brown Howz and why do you relax in her?!
Apu: No, no, Brown House is a place, not a lady.
Manjula: Oh, what humorous misunderstanding.
Apu: Perhaps we could relax in the Brown House together?
Manjula: And now you want me to participate in your adultery!
Apu: Please, I have not cheated on you! It’s not even an option on my job list!

A Love Embiggened Pt. 4
Manjula starts

Manjula: I have never been so angry at my husband!  If two strangers married by distant relatives for economic and social gain can’t have perfect marital bliss, who can?  I need to teach Apu not to take my for granted.  Perhaps I could ask Marge Simpson what she goes with her husband, and then do the opposite.

Marge: WHAT? You just sat down! At least have a finger sandwich.
Manjula: I saw all I needed to see. Don’t worry, I’ll go back to him when he’s learned his lesson.  Until then, I’ll just stay with you. Point me to your nearest guest suite and your supply of saffron.
Marge: Hmmm. Do you know how long it will take for Apu to realize the error of his ways?
Manjula: We Hindus think on a longer timeline than mere days or weeks or years.
Homer: D’OH!
Manjula: While I am here, I must request that you do not drink alcohol since it is against my religion.
Homer: Double D’OH!

A Love Embiggened Pt. 6
Apu starts

Apu: This is horrible! How did I get anything done with these eight little monsters hanging off my every limb?!
Marge: I hate to say it Apu, but you brought this upon yourself.
Apu: I, too, hate that you have said that. It was very hurtful and did not solved any of my problems.
Marge: Think of Manjula. I know from experience how stressful it can be married to a work-a-holic.
Apu: How can you joke at a time like this?  Please, Marge, tell me what to do. And hold at least one of these babies.

A Love Embiggened Pt. 7
Apu starts

Apu: My dear Manjula, the lightness of my being! I beg of you to give me another chance. Tell me how to please you!
Manjula: It’s not like I just have a list of things I want you to do.
Apu: I understand, but –
Manjula: Number one: make them bring back Cookie Crisp cereal.  Number two: have Disney get an Indian princess. I’m tired of being lumped in with Jasmine.  To be fair, you briefly owned a pet tiger.  Number three: take time off work to spend with your kids.
Apu: If you don’t mind, I think I’ll start with number three.
Apu: What are you going to do in the meantime?
Manjula: I’ll participate in what I’ve been told is America’s pastime.

Manjula starts

Manjula: Apu, I’ve thought long and hard and I’m willing to take you back… as soon as you finish these thirteen additional tasks.
Apu: I already agreed to let you call me Sanjay once in bed. Isn’t that enough?
Manjula: I simply ask that we take some time together and reconnect as husband and wife.

Apu: I’m stuffed. I couldn’t breathe another scented air.
Manjula: And that dessert of rehydrated water with Manjula written in frozen rehydrated water on top!
Manjula: And best of all, you haven’t mentioned the Kwik-E-Mart once.
Apu: The Kwik-E-Mart is fine. Unattended. So alone. Probably frightened. Did it just get hotter in here? Is anyone else having trouble breathing?
Manjula: *sigh* The only problem with forgiving you is that we have to back to our normal lives.
Apu: The night is young. We don’t have to go back just yet.
Manjula: Make-out Point?
Apu: I was thinking of an even more romantic spot. Romantic and well-lit and constantly threatened by thieves…

Manjula: At least this time you got the feral cat population under control.
Apu: Yes, although the wolf that ate them is still at large. But I’m sure the bear arriving next week will solve that problem.
Apu: Wait… Where are you going Apu?
Apu: Now that I’ve won back your love, I can FINALLY return to work. Americans’ need to eat themselves to death stops for no one.

  1. Does anyone else wish EA would flip the spots where Apu and Manjula appear in the upper left corner of the game? I start mindlessly clicking through jobs for people and sometimes forget that I need Apu available for some of Manjula’s shorter jobs. I send Apu to do a 1hr “Feed the Octuplets”, but then don’t have a 1hr job for Manjula to do. Yes, I should pay more attention, but when you’re clicking away, sometimes it slips the mind.

  2. This is the only Blog i love!!!

  3. I agree with all the comments made. I stsrted out myself as a fremium player but I enjoyed the game, I didn’t mind paying real money to get the goodies that enhance my tapping. And I agree about the negativity you read in other forums, but it’s one of the reasons I am a fan of this upbeat blog. That all said, I am loving level 39!!!

  4. Personally I’ve been really enjoying level 39. I’ve been reading a lot of negativity online regarding our latest level (and pretty much every other update), and quite frankly it annoys me. I’m always happy when new content pops up. I’m sick of these entitled, whiny bastards complaining about being unsatisfied with -place update here- . This is a freemium game in which EA owes you nothing. If you want something, then pay the money for it. If you can’t afford it at this time, save up for it. They’re a business doing this to make money. If they choose to add a much coveted character for donuts, that’s good business. It’s not a charity. It’s business!

    With that said, the free/premium ratio favors the freemium players by a large margin.

    • Hear, hear!

      I totally agree. I’m a freemium player myself, but am very thankful to all the premium players. It is their financial contributions to EA that allows EA to continue to operate and provide new levels and events for us freemium players.

      I’ve also been saving up to make my first donut purchase, but as I have limited funds and am relying on the TSTO Addicts contest I won and a birthday gift card, I’m waiting for a Gil deal before I venture into premium territory.

      I’ve never felt shorted or jipped being a freemium player. I do however wish they would bring back old limited time free items to players who joined later and give them a limited window in which to obtain the limited item for free again. For instance, anyone who joins today should have say a two day opportunity to somehow get the free episode tie ins like the Falls or Kumiko or Sushi Bar.

    • I totally agree! I choose to buy stuff cause I really love The Simpsons and the game. But even if I only played it as a freemium game I’d still have a ton of stuff!

    • i am in total agreement! i started out Freemium then as i progressed, i acquired friends, tried to save donuts and ended up being Premium! I know EA gives us free stuff but when i want more, i do what is necessary! I do not get it with alot of ppl that carry negativity but then again you find that in all walks of life!

      • This! I started out freemium, and then I quit smoking. Here in Alaska cigarettes are almost 10 bucks a pack, so now that I quit, I’m spending my money on a more worthy for of addiction :).

        It did what was necessary for my health. The reward is donuts!

    • I was just ranting mostly about people who complain on other sites. It seems the folks who frequent Addicts have great heads on their shoulders, and I thank you all for your great attitudes and allowing me to voice my frustrations.

      • Not a problem at all. We all have our moments, but you made some very excellent points in your comment and I appreciated it. I also started out Freemium player myself and have a TON of stuff in my freemium A game and love it. Got a ton of Free donuts from many events. I also use my B game as a flip side for Premium play. I enjoy both aspects. Though my Freemium game is missing a few items I would like to have, it is stuffed full of so many FREE items I am redesigning it…again…for like the 10th time. Lol. 😉

      • EvilKitten812

        I couldn’t agree more 🙂 this is the key reason why I love this site. Everyone here from the writers to the readers is absolutely great! I have visited other sites as well but this one feels like home (even though the attic and basement always seem to be locked 😉 ) We all ENJOY the game. That’s what matters, freemium or premium. I was just ranting to my friends today about how I can’t stand ppl that purposely look up these sites to diss on mobile games & their players. If you don’t like it, don’t participate. That simple. I can afford some donuts here and there, and I always justify the purchase by telling myself I’m helping pay someone’s paycheck. 🙂
        I also thought about how cool it would be if on the anniversary of the game EA re-released some of those limited items- like a big anniversary blow out event lol.

        • ooooh… anniversary blowout sale is one of the best ideas I’ve heard yet. As for locks on the Attic, you’d have to ask Alissa. Certainly not locked from the inside. Unless it’s blocked by my recent resupply of jalapeno cheetos?
