Tapped Out Walkthroughs: Level 42 & The Revenue Streams

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Well Level 43 has arrived on our Tapping devices…and as I sat down to do the Level 43 full dialogue walkthrough, I realized I never posted Level 42’s full dialogue walkthrough.  Of course we’ve had our Turbo Tappin’ (quick walkthrough) up since the update hit our games (check out the Level 42 Turbo Tappin’ Walkthrough here), but I completely dropped the ball on posting the full version.

I know many of you love going back and reading old walkthroughs just in case there was anything you missed when playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 42.  So for those that may have missed it…I bring you all the fun and humor of Roger Myers Jr & Level 42…..

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 1
Krusty starts

Krusty: I miss the old Springfield.  Where’s the black market Vicodin?  Where’s the underground kangaroo fight club?  I need my ‘roo fights!  Sure I’m making lots of money.  But that gets boring without morally reprehensible things to spend it on.
Blue Haired Lawyer: Krusty, if you’re jaded about being rich, there’s only one solution to your spiritual crisis– get even richer.
Krusty: Yeah, then I can have a private island.  And attach rockets to it, and blast it into space.  Ah, Space Island.
Blue Haired Lawyer: What you need is to start making new Itchy and Scratchys.
Krusty: But we’ve already got hundreds of them.  And the characters don’t change or age.  What innovative stories could any writer wring out of those characters?
BHL: From what I can tell, none.  But it doesn’t matter.  No one needs to watch new episodes.  They just need to know they’re being made and remember the old ones fondly…and voila, the brand is still relevant!  Then you can start merchandising t-shirts and action figures, slot machines and beer… maybe even develop a freemium game!
Krusty: Would the game have to be good?
BLH: Not at all.  Just rebuild Itchy & Scratchy Studios.  I promise you’ll be slurping up cash pronto from that sweet IP!
Build the Itchy & Scratchy Studio- $800,000, 24hr build
Krusty: Look out, ennui.  You’re about to get punched with a money fist.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 2
Roger Myers Jr stars

Roger: Krusty, if it isn’t my favorite talking ulcer.  What is it that you want from me?
Krusty: hey, hey Roger.  I just pulled you from oblivion.  You ought to be kssing my foot acne in gratitude.
Roger: I ain’t kissing your acne for nothing!  You still owe me the Picasso you destroyed!
Krusty: When I drunkenly broke into your house and gold cold?  What was I supposed to start a fire with… a Monet!?  I’m not breathing in fumes from some crappy impressionist!
BHL: Fellas, let’s put aside this fighting, and focus on our common goal- being rich enough to feel superior to others.
Krusty: We have a simple request, Roger.  Get your staff at I & S to develop a new batch of beloved cartoons we can turn into shoddy sweatshop merchandise.  Remember, not just loved, BE-loved.
Roger: We can do that.  I have the smartest, hardest working, most talented writers since….

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 3
Krusty starts 

Krusty: Well, Roger, I’ve given you and your staff 12 hours, give or take the use of donuts.  That should be more than enough time for them to come up with a billion dollar franchise.
Roger: I’m sorry, Krusty.  I went into the studio, and found everyone who worked for me is gone.  And by gone, I mean is now a skeleton.  There’s a lesson here: if you chain your writers to their chairs, make sure those chairs are within arms’ reach of the breakroom.
Krusty: Wait.  Then what have you been doing all this time?
Roger: Caught up with my email.  Your inbox really fills up when you haven’t been in existence for a while.
Krusty: Oh, even more money!  You were going to heal me!  Now how will I ever end the numbness I feel for life?
Make Krusty Be a Sad Clown– 24hrs, Earns $600, 150xp
Krusty: The worst problems in the the world are the ones that affect me.
CBG: A sad clown? How very original.
Krusty: Originality is not my specialty.  Besides, I’m not sad for me.  I’m sad for the millions of viewers who’ll never get to see new episodes of Itchy and Scratchy.
CBG: I guess you haven’t seen Deadline Springfield.
Krusty: What is that — the Internet?  People aren’t still doing the Internet, are they?

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 4
Krusty starts

Krusty: Hey Roger Liars, which I say since Liars rhymes with your last name Myers.  What’s this I just read on Deadline Springfield?
Roger: Look whose tears have dried.  My good pal —
Krusty: Don’t you “good pal” me!  You’re gonna make millions showing Itchy & Scratchy on the World Wide Whatever!  And you cut me out of the deal?!
Roger: In our last contract, you never asked for a share of new media sales.  It’s not my fault we signed that when the internet didn’t exist.
Krusty:  You backstabbing son of a backstabber!  If it’s an option in my menu, I will make it my mission to have you stored back in the inventory.
Roger: People don’t watch television anymore, Krusty.  They receive content through smartphones, computers, tablets, and direct-to-brain downloads.
BHL: So now some company will pay us handsomely for the opportunity to provide the entire Itchy & Scratchy catalogue via cable and internet doohickeys.  That’s how to wring the last remaining drops of cash out of an aging cartoon franchise.
Krusty: But you told me IP something blah blah?
BHL: I just said that to trick you into bringing back Roger.  Face it, Krusty.  You got Blue-Haired Lawyered.

Krusty the Hair Colorist Pt. 1
Krusty starts

Krusty: Stupid Blue-Hairs!  This is what I get for trusting those types of people.  Always trying to crook away your money.
Milhouse: Mr. the Clown, I know I see you all the time, but can I have another autograph?  I keep having to give them away to bullies so they don’t steal my retainer.
Krusty: Scram, you worthless blue-haired kid.  And don’t you even think of putting your toe into a Krusty Burger.  You’re banned!  All Blue-Hairs are banned!  Huh.  I never knew bigotry was this emotionally satisfying.  I think I finally get the South.  
Make Krusty Block Blue-Hairs from Krusty Burger-
3hrs, Earns $135, 35xp
Krusty: Nothing blocks people from entering a building like juggling.  This is the perfect revenge.  There’s no way this act of bigotry doesn’t work out great for me.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 5
Roger Myers Jr. starts

Roger: Seven hundred and fifty million dollars….
BHL: Roger, can you please finish singing these contracts?
Roger: Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…
BHL: Yes, that’s how much you’re going to be paid for the streaming rights for Itchy & Scratchy by the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment is Extreme©!
Roger: Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…
BHL: But you can’t get anything from the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment is Extreme ©, until you sign all the contracts.
Roger: Seven hundred and fifty million dollars…
BHL: *sigh* Here, you hold the pen and I’ll hold your hand.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 6
Roger Myers Jr. starts 

Roger: Look at all these tech weirdos and inter-dorks here to build the Itchy & Scratchy website.  Finally, I’ve got a staff to demean and humiliate.  What am I supposed to yell at them to do again?
BHL: They’re creating an advertising supported web portal.  It’s basically a Hulu devoted solely to Itchy & Scratchy where all the episodes ever produced can be viewed.
Roger: Do whatever the lawyer just said!  And do it faster!  Or I’ll pull out your throats and choke you with your own windpipes!  Make a note of that visual.  We could make a whole story out of it for the cat.  Or the mouse.  Whichever one does the violence.  
Make Roger Myers Jr. Shout at the Web Designers
– 10hrs, Earns $350, 90xp
BHL: I am here to inform you, Krusty, since the start of the I & S web portal for BZZ Network, Where Entertainment is Extreme ©, you must cease all displays of Itchy & Scratchy licensed images.
Krusty: You’re pulling Itchy & Scratchy?  Please, no one watches my show to see me!  Everyone knows I’m the one holding me back!

Krusty the Hair Colorist Pt. 2
Krusty starts

Krusty: These shifty Blue-Hairs are rotting this city from the inside.  It’s time we deal with this problem using good old fashioned 20th century methods.   Like they use in Arizona.  I’ve already banned them from Krusty Burger.  Now to use my powerful connections in City Hall to lobby for a Blue-Hair ID program, Blue-Hair-only bathrooms, and eventually Blue-Hair deportation.  I’m stepping up this discrimination from de facto to de jure.
Make Krusty Discriminate Against Blue-Haired People– 5hrs, Earns $200, 50xp
Quimby: There is absolutely no way, erm, I can do what you want, Krusty.  It’s plainly illegal and immoral.  When Quimby won’t take your bribe, you know you’ve crossed a line.
Krusty: I just want to treat certain people as second-class citizens, based solely on the color of their hair.  How can that be wrong?
Quimby: No politician can win an election if he’s associated with hair colorism, even an election he fixed.
Krusty: But D-Joe, they took Itchy & Scratchy from me.  You have to help me dehumanize these people.  It’s the only way I can get everyone to stop thinking of them as human!

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 7
Bart starts

Bart: Lis, look outside and tell me if the world blew up!
Lisa: It’s still here.  The world is unlikely to end by explosion though.  The true danger is inattention and neglect as we use up our natural resources.  I have seen the asteroid, and it is us.
Bart: You’re as fun as ever, sis.  but now we have a  real problem!  Itchy & Scratchy was pulled from Krusty’s show!  This is going to make wasting time watching TV pointless.
Lisa: As the super rich get super richer, the rest of us have to accept the rules they give us.  That’s how the modern economy works.  By the way, if you’re smart and powerless, it’s way cooler to give up and act jaded.  I read that in The Economist For Kidz.
Bart: This is unacceptable.  What’s the point of being kids if we can’t fix problems with pluck, spuck, and ….how do we fix this?
Lisa: Well, we could round up all the kids in town and write complaint letters to Roger Myers Jr.  This could be our civil rights movement, but instead of being about freedom from social persecution, it’s about freedom to watch TV.  Because freedom is now a meaningless word.
Bart: Write letters?  Would we have to use cursive?  That seems too hard?  Can’t we just email photos of our butts?
Lisa: Anyone or any spambot can shoot off an email.  But people willing to write letters, they’re crazy enough to be dangerous.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 8
Roger Myers Jr starts

Roger:  I’ve gotten so many thoughtful, articulate letters from our passionate fans.  Intern, bring me the incinerator!
Squeaky Voiced Teen: Dear Leader Mr. Myers, sir, the incinerator broke yesterday, after you tried to burn the printer after another paper jam.
Roger: A printer’s job is to print.  Not eat up all my paper!

Roger: Taking the time to personally ignore each fan letter is so fulfilling.

Krusty the Hair Colorist Pt. 3
Milhouse starts

Milhouse: Mr. the Clown, I know you hate my kind, but can you sign one last autograph?  And then initial pages 3,5,8 and 9?
Krusty: How did you get in here, Blue-Hair?!  *sigh* Never hire a monkey to run your security.
BHL: Krusty, this here is a class-action lawsuit for your blatantly discriminatory service policy.  You can’t keep people out of Krusty Burger based on the color of their hair.  Only on the content of their character…as evidenced by a lack of shirt and/or shoes.
Krusty: You can sue someone for being a bigot?!  There’s no chance I can beat a lawsuit.  This town only has one lawyer.
Moleman: I’ll be your Perry Mason, Krusto.  I got a JD when someone flushed theirs into the sewer.
Krusty: This degree is from Dartmouth.  I think I’m better off representing myself.  
Make Milhouse Take Krusty to Court-

Session-4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp

BHL: Today I will show this court that Krusty not only discriminated against Blue-Hair-Americans like my client and myself, but also his own father!  For as this picture shows, Rabbi Hyman Krustofski was born with blue hair!
Judge Snyder: DUNT DUNT DUN!
Krusty: Oh no, Papa!  How I have slandered and disgraced you!
BHL: Once again, you’ve been Blue-Haired-Lawyered!
Krusty: My mother was born with yellow hair, my father with blue, and that adds up to me having green hair.  It seems so obvious once I say the chromatic structure out loud.
BHL: Krusty, you can hand my client your entire net worth in either bags marked with dollar signs or chests full of coins made of gold.
Milhouse: Oh Mr. Lawyer, I don’t want any money.
Judge Snyder: SHUH-WHUT?!
Milhouse: All I want is for Krusty to go back to showing Itchy & Scratchy.
Judge Snyder: Will, I have no legal right to force one private company to work with another private company… but I just can’t resist the wish of a child.  Blue-Haired Lawyer, get Itchy & Scratchy back on the air!

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 9
Roger Myers Jr starts

Roger: Nothing better to do after the completion of a lifetime of work than proclaim some exposition.  The Itchy & Scratchy website is ready to launch.  I can finally relax.  Think I’ll treat myself to making my clothes stink of tobacco.  
Make Roger Myers Jr. Relax with a Cigar
– 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Roger: Wait, if all my work is done, who am I going to yell at?  There’s too much risk of reprisal with waiters and concierges.  I can try yelling at my cigar.  Cigar, you better not give me mouth cancer!  Oh no, this isn’t working — it’s just defiantly blowing smoke in my face.

Islands in the Revenue Stream Pt. 10
Roger Myers Jr. starts

Roger: So it’s agreed.  I’ll get to yell at people to make new Itchy & Scratchy episodes, and Krusty will show them.
Krusty: That’s all I ever wanted.  Also, a percentage of that seven hundred and fifty million dollar new media sale would be great.
Roger: Seven hundred and fifty million dollars….
BHL: Krusty, the BZZ Network, Where Entertainment Is Extreme ©, has offered to pay your cable bill for one year.  They view new episodes airing on your network as the perfect advertising for their website.  Especially since they’re all owned by the same media conglomerate.
Krusty: You make it cable AND internet and we’ve got a deal!
Make Krusty Get a Piece of the Action-
8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Make Roger Myers Jr. Shout at the Animators-

Lisa: Thirty-four.
Bart: Thirty-four screens blasting Itchy & Scratchy straight at our eyeballs, earholes, and mushified brains.  People, there is no escape from the entertainment.

What do YOU think of the dialogue?  Did you enjoy Level 42? Were you able to complete it before Level 43 hit our games?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

  1. My quest got stuck at part 10? It says everyone is done with their actions, but the new dialogue isn’t popping up.

    • Part 10 is the end. Bart has a sidequest, but you have to make sure he and Lisa are free for it. Go to your Krustyland and back and tap on the task menu and look to make sure there isn’t anymore still open tasks for the questline.

    • my quest got stuck at part 9, please let me know if you figured anything out

  2. I just recently got to level 43, but I haven’t been able to get this quest or the princess Penelope quest to trigger. Any idea what’s up?

    • XP level is different than gaming level. All I can suggest is follow our walkthrough page and see what you have NOT completed from prior game levels to unlock the next one. You have to complete tasks in prior levels to move on to the next.

  3. BLH?

  4. Any idea of what the update today is for?

    • Update to what device? I do not see anything in the files or on google play. Maybe a remnant of an update you missed or a standard patch to specific devices.

  5. Why doesn’t Roger Meyers Jr. have a task in Krustylad?????

  6. Please add me – lyre25
