Tapped Out Level Walkthroughs: Level 49, Baking Bread with Michael D’Amico

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 49 hit our Tapping Devices last week and with it “Little Caesar” arrives in town!  Michael D’Amico arrives in Springfield via the D’Amico Summer Home and he’s not quite ready to take over the family business…or is he?

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ walkthrough up since the update first hit (you can view it here) I know many of you still love going back and reading old walkthroughs.  They’re great if you missed any of the dialogue while playing the level, or if you just want to know what to expect when you reach Level 47.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the wonderful food puns of Level 49…

Baking Bread Pt. 1
Agnes Skinner starts

Agnes: This town is awash with crime and I’m going to give that no-good Mayor of ours a piece of my mind!
Quimby: You know I’m the Mayor, right?
Anges: Listen, you. I’ve had my house egged, my lawn donuted, and my porch flaming dog poo’d. Things gotta change around here!
Quimby: I got one of those flaming bags too! It seems there’s a serial pooer out there! I’ll expand the police force immediately but only because this affects me, too!
Agnes: This is way over their heads! We need organized muscle to sniff out these sickos!
Quimby: Hey, you’re right. A deal with the mafia is just what we need to straighten this town out.  If I’ve learned anything from the years I spent in organized crime, it’s that if you want them to do for you, you have to do for them.  I’ll build a discrete location for them in which to meet and crack some skulls!
Build the D’Amico Summer Home- $1,092,000. 24hr Build.
Fat Tony: Look who we have here boys! Little Caesar has arrived! How’s my Michael? Ready to join the family business?
Michael: Sorry Papa, waste disposal might be fine for you, but I hate getting my hands dirty unless it’s from making chicken cacciatore!
Fat Tony: Now, Michael. This business is in your blood — you can’t escape it.  It’s time to put that meat cleaver to different use… if you know what I mean.  I mean cutting people that we dislike, instead of food.
Michael: I don’t know what you mean, but I won’t do it.  Papa, I tried to get into the Sopranos, but I hated it! Doesn’t that tell you something?  I’m sorry, but it’s a chef’s life for me.

Baking Bread Pt. 2
Michael starts

Michael: Luigi, I need a favor.
Luigi: Anything for da prodigy young chef! What-ah you need?
Michael: I need a job so my father will stop asking me to work with him.  And since you know the cooking business, and I know the cooking, maybe you and I could partner up?
Luigi: You wanna just give up your privileged childhood and bake-a da bread?
Michael: That’s right. And if you work with me, bread will be a-baked with yeast, not packing peanuts.
Luigi: But the peanuts isa my signature!
Michael: Okay, fine. The packing peanuts can stay.
Luigi: Aww, our first compromise!

Baking Bread Pt. 3
Fat Tony starts

Fat Tony: It seems we’ve entered a time which warrants much celebration!  We’ll throw a party!
Legs: Have you heard about Luigi’s latest menu, it is getting fantastic reviews!
Fat Tony: Then that is the menu we shall order from!

Michael: It’s me Papa!
Fat Tony: Ah, Michael — you’ve changed your mind. Legs, give my boy the pinstripe fedora I’ve been saving for him.
Michael: No, I was your chef tonight! It was all me!
Fat Tony: You have greatly disgraced our family. And the food was okay at best.
Homer: Now Fat Tony, you don’t need to get so worked up about it.  I wish my own daughter could cook as well as yours!
Fat Tony: Homer, you always know how to make me feel better.

Baking Bread Pt. 4
Louie starts

Louie: Hey Legs, did you hear the crepe Don Vittorio has been talking about Michael D’Amico’s cuisine?  He thinks this is making the boss weak, wants Fat Tony to get his “just desserts”
Legs: Did you know that it’s actually “just deserts,” but a lot of people didn’t know the meaning of the word “desert,” pronounced diz-urt…  …as in “to get what’s coming to you,” so they just started saying “desserts,” because it sounds the same. In truth, it doesn’t really make sense.
Louie: But it worked so well with my food puns.
Legs: Do you want it to be right, or do you want it to be easy?
Louie: You’re right. Thank you. Anyway, Vittorio told me in private that he wants you to pick the target and the method.
Legs: We’ll hit Luigi’s place — he’s the cause of all this.
Louie: So what’s the nature of the gig… Clipping berries? Nicking cheddar? Lifting dough?
Legs: See! There you go! Those are great puns! And that is exactly what we are gonna do.

Baking Bread Pt. 5
Luigi starts

Luigi: Ay! Robbed again by two miscreants-a! What’s-a worst, they ate’a the prized soufflé!
Michael: Looks like they’re sending a message for me to stop cooking.
Fat Tony: I’ll tell you the problem, you’re showing weakness Michael! Other mob-families are going to be after us.  The Don has given them the OK to crack us like eggs, whack us like weeds, pick us off like olives.
Michael: You NEVER pick off olives! But these wise guys, no problem, I’ll handle this.  I’m gonna give them to the count of 10, then I’m gonna fill their guts full of bread!
Fat Tony: Great food pun, boy!
Make Michael D’Amico Serve Food- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
Michael: Legs, Louie, I bring you these trays of food as a peace offering.
Louie: Oooh, what do we have here?
Michael: *removes lid*
Louie: What the hell is this?!
Michael: It’s a ghost pepper! THE HOTTEST PEPPER IN THE WORLD! What do you think about me holding this to your neck?!
Legs: Now, kid. Let’s not do anything rash here.
Michael: Rash! Exactly!!
Louie: Just put down the ghost pepper, and we’ll work something out.

Baking Bread Pt. 6
Louie starts

Louie: Having that ghost pepper at my neck made me realize how silly our little disagreement was.
Michael: I thought it would.  I am assuming this means peace between us?
Louie: You got it, kid!
Legs: Fair warning, though, you still ain’t in the Don’s favor.
Michael: Seems like we’ll need a new, more secret place to cook. Anybody know any good old abandoned warehouses?
Build Abandoned Warehouse- $708,000, 24hr Build.
Michael:  Now that we have a spot to control supply, we need distribution.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: I’m always looking for an odd job or two.
Michael: Hey Luigi, who the hell is this guy?
Luigi: He’sa good kid, I’ma sure you can find him some tasks!

At this point if you have Squeaky Voiced Teen you’ll be prompted to start the Low Costa Nostra questline.  It’s only 2 parts and we’ll cover it at the conclusion of Breaking Bread.  

Baking Bread Pt. 7
Fat Tony starts

Fat Tony: Michael, I’m proud you’ve incorporated the family business into your new business.
Michael: We always need a cook on the inside, right Papa?
Fat Tony: So you have been listening all these years.
Michael: We’re really raking in the cabbage these days. But cabbage ain’t money. So, I need your support. How about it?
Fat Tony: Alright, son. Also, I want you to have Legs and Louie. You’re eight years old, you should have your own muscle by now.
Michael: Thanks, Papa. Now, I’ve got to go rake some more cabbage.

Baking Bread Pt. 8
Michael starts

Michael: It should now be clear that I’m not in the food business, I’m in the empire business.
Legs: What are we going to do with all this citrus slaw?
Louie: We’ve slaved over it for hours!
Michael: We’ll be bribing the cops with it, of course! Only the finest for those fat, fat pigs.

Baking Bread Pt. 9
Michael starts

Michael: Now that the police are properly bribed, let’s go murder all the restaurant owners taking business away from Luigi’s.
Legs: You’re the boss, kid. But for future reference, we usually disguise what we’re going to do with some pithy wordplay.
Michael: Hmmm… let’s go home and take out the trash?

Wiggum: Heya-Michael! I just wanted to stop by to tell you how MUCH the force enjoyed the food you brought us, and… Wait just a moment! What’s that you have there in the bag?
Michael: Is it celery, or is it tomato? A chef doesn’t reveal his secrets.  *gulp*
Wiggum: You’re making gazpacho aren’t you! That explains the red stuff leaking out of the bag.  Yeah, but here’s the thing: I hate gazpacho. Now, I can’t arrest you for that, but you will have to dispose of it.
Michael: You got it, copper.
Place Suspicious Dirt Pile- 1 will be awarded to you for FREE in your inventory.  You’ll see this popup 


Fat Tony: Well done, Michael! We can finally bury the hatchet between us.  You did bury the hatchet didn’t you?
Michael: Actually it was a cleaver.
Fat Tony: That’s my boy! Such actions have restored the Don’s faith in our family organization.  Normally I’d say hide the evidence better, but this way teaches everyone a lesson!
Michael: Yeah, stay out of my famiglia’s territory!

And that concludes the Baking Bread questline.  As mentioned above if you have Squeaky Voiced Teen you’ll get a 2 quest bonus that will popup.  Here are those details…

Low Costa Nostra Pt. 1
Squeaky Voiced Teen starts

Squeaky Voiced Teen: So you want me to deliver this ‘head of lettuce’ in a bag to Herman’s Antiques?What could this possibly be for?
Michael: I didn’t hire you to question me. Just do as I say, and everything will be fine.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: Alright… I suppose it is just the heads of lettuce are a little heavier in Italy… Ten pounds heavier!
Make Squeaky Voice Teen Deliver Suspicious Package- 24hrs, Earns $1,000, 225xp
Herman: I-ah, see that you guys in the food business are serious.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: I have a message from “Little Caesar”, it says “Choose your friends more wisely in the future.”
Herman: I think you have the wrong guy. I don’t have any friends, just acquaintances.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: Uhhhh… I don’t know of any other Hermans in this town. I am sure this is a message for you.
Herman: Well at least there’s something interesting in the bag. I can probably mount and sell it!  Thanks kid, have a good day!

Low Costa Nostra Pt. 2
Michael starts

Michael: Now I have a bigger job for you. I need someone to give an alibi.
Squeaky Voiced Teen: What could you possibly need an alibi for?
Michael: I said it before, no questions!  I need you to say that all day yesterday I was with you studying the fine craft of vegan burger preparation.  If they ask about some victim’s blood on my cheese grater, paring knife, pizza cutter, spatula, or my gun – say I’ve been looking for those items for days!
Squeaky Voiced Teen: *gulp* I don’t get paid enough for this!
Michael: This internship is providing you with priceless experience!
Make Squeaky Voice Teen Report an Alibi- 12hrs, Earns $600, 150xp 

And with that Level 49 is complete!

It’s a fun little update to keep you busy taping.  AND the dialogue is pretty funny.  You’ll be able to say things to your fellow tappers like “I’ve got a bag of gazpacho” and “I’m raking the cabbage”.  🙂  If you run it from start to finish, with out using donuts, it will take you 6 days and 4hrs to complete the Baking Bread questline and an additional 36hrs for the Low Costa Nostra questline.

My best advice?  DON’T RUSH IT!  Take your time with this questline and enjoy it.  And remember…save those donuts for content.  Don’t spend them on rushing.  🙂

What do YOU think of Level 49?  How about Michael’s Dialogue?  Did you enjoy the questline?  Where have you placed the Summer Home in your Springfield?  How about the Abandoned Warehouse? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. It won’t let me do part six? I can’t build the warehouse and I have more than enough money.

  2. When/how does the baking bread quest start after you reach level 49?

    • Agnes starts it. BUT in order to get it to trigger you have to have completed the build for Level 48. So you’ll have to build Gold Navy and get Janey

  3. For whatever reason I can’t move to Breaking Bread pt3. Anyone know if there is something that suppose to trigger it?

  4. Where do you place the abandoned warehouse? When I click the task, it takes me near the boardwalk. Even if I hover it around an empty space it won’t allow me to place it. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the help.

  5. How come I didn’t get 5% bonus on completion of all consumerism etc to get to 5 stars ?

    • It’s 5% once your overall rating hits 5 stars. Is your overall rating 5 stars? If it is tap on your Conform O Meter, what does the bonus % say?

      • It says 107% but said 106.10% before I got to full 5 stars , ….. So no 5% bonus ?

        • You get a bonus % for each star you achieve. So more than likely you were at just over 4 stars and then hit 5 and got an extra %. In otherwords if you town is 1 star its 1%, 2 stars 2% but if you go from 1 star to 2 stars you don’t get 3%, it’ll just be 2%. So 1 more % over 1 star. Make sense?

          • Yes I think I do , the full 1% I got from 106.10% up to 107.10% was down squarly to the fact I finally achieved the last of all my 5 stars and not all 5% in one go .

            Thanks , this site is cool and so are you 3 , but where’s the Valentine’s Day stuff ? X x

  6. Thanks as always for the walkthrough. Without it I would never know for sure that the quest was complete. There’s the notification that you’ve finished “part #” but it never says “and that’s all!” Before I found you all I would go through freeing up every single character to be absolutely sure it was all over.

    So really, THANKS.

  7. It wont let me start the staff quest

  8. I “buried” my suspicious dirt pile way out in the woods, near the “snowed in” cabin we got as a Christmas decoration. Figured the dirt pile shouldn’t be anywhere near the Summer House, to help ensure that Michael wouldn’t be a suspect lol!

    Rereading the dialog reminds me of some research I did on the “just desserts” vs. “just deserts” thing (I’m a grammar nerd – I admit it). It turns out that Legs is right, but for the wrong reason. Snopes does a good job explain it, so I’ll just give the link here: http://www.snopes.com/language/notthink/deserts.asp

    Now that I’m finished with Level 49, the Bart and Lisa in my head are saying about the Valentine’s update, “IS IT HERE YET? IS IT HERE YET? IS IT HERE YET?…” 😀

  9. I finished level 49 this morning, really enjoyed the quest line including the free gift.
    I’m also happy about having a character that now can use the Grocery Store on a regular basis, gives hope that other buildings could be brought back to life.
