Tapped Out Level Walkthroughs: Level 58, Frankie the Squealer

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Level 58 hit our Tapping Devices recently, and with it Springfield’s Mob got a little bit bigger, as Frankie the Squealer arrived in town.

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 58.  So for those that may have missed it (or for those of you that want to live it again)…I bring you all the details of the mobster driven Level 58…

Frankie the Squealer Mafia Car

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 1
Fat Tony starts

Fat Tony: Man, I’m seeing these Uber cars everywhere. When are we gonna take over that industry?
Don: We already are. What do you think Lyft is?  We just need to make sure Town Hall doesn’t cave in to the “reasonable safety regulations and background checks” lobby and ban us.
Fat Tony: 
Leave that to me! Oh and by the way, next time you use Lyft can you use the code FATTONY27? I’ll get $5 off my next ride.
Reach Level 58 and Place the Mafia Car- $1,680,000, instant build
Quimby: A 1932 Phaeton!  Does it work?
Fat Tony: I ran rum in it just last Saturday.
Quimby: Wow!  Now people won’t just think I have ties to the mob — they’ll think I’m in it!
Fat Tony: So we have an agreement?
Quimby: The Quimby Ride-Sharing Freedom Act will be singed by yesterday!
Make Fat Tony Grease the Wheels- 30m, Earns $40, 10xp
Make Quimby Have his Wheels Greased- 30m, Earns $40, 10xp
Quimby: I must need a higher octane gasoline — this car makes a knocking noise. Also, uh, a muffled screaming noise.  Whoa, there’s a guy tied up in the trunk!  Maybe he’s a mechanic who can, uh, look into that knocking noise.
Frankie: I’m not a mechanic! Untie me!
Quimby: 
Can you at least do detailing?

Frankie and the Politician Pt.  2
Quimby starts

Quimby: Since I rescued you and all, uh, I’m hoping you can keep quiet about our little “deal.”
Frankie: You mean the fact that you accepted a bribe from my Mafia buddies to keep your nose out of their business?  Well, I already tweeted about it, but you can erase those. Consider it forgotten!
Quimby: Er uh, how long were you in that trunk anyway?
Frankie: I don’t know, but it seemed like an eternity.
Quimby: Sounds like dinner with my wife. Which you’re coming to!  You’ll wish you were back in that trunk before the salad course is over.
Make the Quimbys Host a Dinner- x3. 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp.  Can send Mayor Quimby, Martha Quimby and Freddy Quimby

Quimby: I saw the way you and my wife were flirting with each other during dinner.
Frankie: I’m sorry! I’d been locked in a trunk for hours with no human contact. It won’t happen again.
Quimby: Oh yes, it will! That was the most enjoyable dinner I’ve had in years!
Frankie: But you just sat and ate in silence while your wife and I talked.
Quimby: Exactly! How, uh, would you like a full-time job on the government payroll? You can be the Mayor’s Wife’s Executive Assistant.
Frankie: What do I do?
Quimby: Anything! As long as it’s with her, and it’s not here.

At this point you’ll unlock a new job at the Pimento Grove for Frankie and Mrs. Quimby

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 3
Frankie starts

Frankie: I’m liking this getting-paid-for-something-besides-killing-people thing. How can I become a politician myself?
Quimby: Marry someone who becomes President and then start authoritatively spouting off on policy issues, even though you’re, uh, utterly unqualified to do so.
Frankie: But if I marry someone else, your wife won’t want to hang out with me.
Quimby: Good point. Er uh, try this instead — make a billion dollars then file for bankruptcy, and wear a toupée that looks like a marmoset …and host a TV show with celebrities who haven’t been famous since before the Internet was invented.
Frankie: A billion dollars?! How am I going to earn that?
Quimby: You’re in politics now — you don’t “earn” anything. You “raise” it from stupid rich people.
Frankie: Gotcha! And where can I find these stupid rich people?

Quimby: You ALREADY raised all the money? It’s been less than a day! How’d you do it?
Frankie: People were pretty open to purchasing a membership once I threatened to break their ribs with a 3-iron.
Quimby: Hmm. Maybe I’ll, uh, try that next time instead of a 5-wood.

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 4
Fat Tony starts

Fat Tony: Alright Frankie, you’ve been our inside man in the government for two weeks now. Time for you to do what you do best and squeal. Whaddya got for me?
Frankie: Get this — Martha Quimby shops at Ross Dress for Less!
Fat Tony: Um, OK. Do you maybe have anything a little more… useful?
Frankie: This next one’s a doozy. Martha talks in her sleep, and when she does, she recites episodes of “Hart to Hart”!
Fat Tony: I didn’t hire you to write an exposé for O Magazine. I hired you to help with the Business! Now get outta here and find me some information I can use!
Frankie: So you don’t want to hear about Martha’s iTunes playlist?

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 5
Frankie starts

Quimby: I got into the country club despite being Catholic, and Martha hasn’t asked me for a foot rub in weeks. Impressive work, Frankie!
Frankie: You don’t know the half of it!
Quimby: Whaddya mean?
Frankie: While working for you, I’ve also been working as a mafia spy reporting everything I see back to Fat Tony!
Quimby: What???  But I’VE also been working as a mafia spy reporting everything I see back to Fat Tony!
Martha: I guess that makes three of us.
Quimby: Maybe that’s why he seems so bored when I give my reports.

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 6
Frankie starts

Fat Tony: I can’t believe you squealed. You disappoint me, Frankie.
Frankie: Please boss, don’t hurt me. Martha and I have Zumba Con Sergio tomorrow — we had to book it two months in advance!
Fat Tony: Eh, unfortunately since you’re in the government now it’s too risky to have you beat up.
Frankie: Phew. Anyway, it’s not like I squealed about something important, like Jon Snow getting murdered in the finale.
FatTony: Ya chooch! I’m only on season 4! NOW you’re getting beat up.
Make Legs and Louie Ensure No Spoilers for the New Season- 1hr, Earns $210, 50xp  (requires Legs, Louie and Frankie)
Frankie: Ugggh, my arm, my knee, my other knee…Rumor on the Internet is he’s not even dead! I’m tired of this life. I’m gonna run for office, where I can commit crimes in a much less dangerous environment!  But who’s gonna vote for an incompetent mafia flunky?
Brockman: Perhaps I can help!  There’s nothing better than making a bold statement on live TV.
Frankie: You’re saying I should come on your show and act like a man?
Brockman: No, I’m saying the opposite.

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 7
Frankie starts

Brockman: Welcome back to “0.04167 Days”, Springfield’s #1 news magazine show.  Tonight, we’re joined by a very special guest with a very special confession: Francine the Squealer.
Frankie: Just hearing you say that feels so liberating.
Brockman: Francine, you also have another confession besides your new identity.
Frankie: Yes. I’ve been working undercover as a mafia spy in Mayor Quimby’s administration.  And while I’m still a bit unsure about my gender, I am sure of one thing — both the mafia and the government are corrupt and need to be stopped!  Viewers, if you want to march on Town Hall with me and take back Springfield, join me tomorrow at the Country Club!

Lisa: Please. Who in the world is gonna join this guy?
Homer: Me!
Lisa: YOU? You’re the least political person I know! You don’t even vote when we vote on cheese vs. pepperoni.
Homer: This isn’t about politics, Lisa. It’s about being a part of something bigger — growing beards, and riding in pickup trucks, and making high production value propaganda videos!

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 8
Frankie starts

Frankie: Wow, thanks for joining up, guys! Now let’s head to Town Hall and overthrow the government!
Apu: Shouldn’t we make a cool flag first?

Frankie and the Politician Pt. 10
Cletus starts

Cletus: I was excited about this revolution, but now my farm’s done been collectivized!
Apu: How am I supposed to make a profit when Squishees have been declared “Counter-revolutionary”?
Homer: They said since I work at the power plant I’m an “intellectual” and need to go to a forced labor camp for re-education.  I hate anything having to do with education.
Lisa: Our only hope is to reinstate the man who was previously running the city.
Quimby: I’m ready!  No, the man who was REALLY running the city.
Fat Tony: Darn, I was kinda enjoying my little vacation.

Don: Frankie! I got a heist tonight and Gino called in sick. You in?

If you have Don Vittorio he’ll continue the questline here

The Comic’s Town Affair Pt. 1
Frankie starts

Frankie: Thanks for including me on this heist, Capo. I really need the gig!  I didn’t realize how much sexual reassignment surgery cost.
Don:  TMI, Frankie. Now pack your heat and let’s head to the comics store.
Frankie:  Comics store?

Comic Book Guy: Well I AM the store clerk. And if you give me a piece, I can let myself be distracted.
Patty: If you cut me in, I can get a job at the prison, and have romantic relations with any of you who get caught.
Don: Frankie, you moron, now we’re gonna have to split up the haul a ton of ways!
Bart: Well you don’t have to give me a share. I’m just doing this so there’ll be a cool new heist and I won’t have to read any more articles about the Gardner Museum art theft.
Make Springfielders Join the Heist- x10.  6hrs, Earns $225, 55xp Freemium and $350, 90xp Premium

And that concludes the Level 58 questline!

It’s a fun update to keep us busy tapping for a bit!

If you run the Level 58 questline from start to finish, without using donuts, it will take you 3 days and 14hrs to complete if you don’t have Don and and an additional 11hrs if you have Don.

What do YOU think of Level 58?  Were you happy with the character choice?  How about the dialogue so far?  Thoughts on 1 million + car? Where have you placed it in your Springfield?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Do I have to focus on SH for a bit to move on with this questline? I only have Moe’s task unlocked at the body works so getting that would be out of the question even with donuts. I’ll probably wait until after this event to grind through that if I have to wait, but it would suck if I have to build the Country Club. I’ve been neglecting SH for a bit while the events have been happening lol

  2. I cant interrogate a squeeler. The task dont have dont have’do it’ in it I already build a river. Help

  3. Since the beginning of the Frankie quest I had a sudden drop to 0 of the righteousness level in the conform-o-meter? Is that normal or a horrible bug? Thank you!

    • Could be a bug…try adding a few training walls.

      • I’ll sure try, and hope that the bug will fix 😉
        Thank you Alissa !

      • I just finished this quest and it’s not a bug. I had 5 stars for righteousness before this and now I have .5. Every part in this quest takes away righteousness. I’m not happy, I never had a problem with righteousness. They need to change how righteousness works.

  4. I didn’t have Don Vittorio when quest line ended but bought him immediately after and quest line didn’t continue…was I too late?

  5. OK thanks. Email has been sent.

  6. Are you missing the dialogue regarding Hillary Clinton in “Frankie and the Politician Pt. 10” or did I just dream that part when Frankie/Francine finished “Make Frankie the Squealer Run Springfield for the Weekend- 24hrs” for me this morning? I could have sworn that there was a funny little political joke from Lisa regarding not trusting “her”, and the “her” ending up being Clinton instead of Frankie.

  7. When the message comes up that you have 4500 decorations and it’s recommended that you don’t exeed it does it matter if you ignore it or will it make my game unplayable. I would really appreciate your suggestion on what is the best thing to do. Thanks

    • You will have to determine that on your own. Basically, it is EA telling you that you are hitting a point were a device may not be able to handle the amount of memory and space the game will need to function properly, but that varies by YOUR device. So, see how it goes as you push the limit. If it is OK… then keep going. If you find that your game is starting to lag or crash a lot more… you may want to rethink some areas and store a few items.

  8. I am at level 58, and almost ready to level up again…but Frankie has not appeared, the Mafia car is still greyed out….am I missing something super obvious…because sometimes I do that!
    As always, thank you for all of your help and hard work.

    • Let me ask you this…. are you just going off of the XP you have earned in the game? Or are you going off your actual Game Play Level? In other words, have you actually completed the Levels BEFORE 58 in order to unlock the “next step” of Levels? 55, 56, and 57 all done with Questlines and Character/ Building unlocks?

      • Yup…I have a huge monorail….Springfield Heights is coming along….I play a lot…can’t imagine I missed anything….is there a way I can check?

        Thanks again!

        • Lol. Those really don’t have anything to do with the Main Questlines. Look at your task menu bar. What are the exact names and part #s of tasks you still have open in there?

      • I think I found it…I opted not to build the Overpass Diner….so that has to be it, right? Silly rabbit…..

        • Yup yup. You have open Questlines from previous Levels. Each New Level has a different trigger point you have to reach in order to be able to access the next Level content when your XP is high enough. So just make sure you finish at least a few parts in every Level to gain access to the next one. 🙂

      • Cubicle dream part 3-Real Estate mogul pt 4-Old Gray Marriage pt 1-Getting Classy Pt.3

      • oops, and Ain’t No Mountain High Enough Pt 10

      • Did I really say “I have a huge monorail?”. Awkward………

      • Hey Bunny,

        I’ve been at level 58 for almost a month and still the questline for Frankie the politician hasn’t started. Do you have to purchase Rancho Relaxo and have the Don for it to start or is there something else I need to do? You seem to be the person to ask so hopefully you can help. Thanks in advance.

        • You don’t need Don, since he’s premium. You just need to finish the character unlocks/builds prior to level 58 to unlock frankie. So did you finish the unlocks and builds for Levels 57, 56, 55 etc?

    • Thanks Bunny…the diner is building….

  9. LOL… I think the Halloween event is the most anticipated one of the year.
    I can’t wait; it’s my favourite and has the best storyline IMO.
    I hope it drops this Thursday like Alissa said it might. Don’t wanna wait til next Tuesday/Wednesday, the other possibility put forward.

    What do y’all think?
    And what about the main theme…
    Aliens? Zombies? Ghosts? Monsters? X-Files random weirdness?

  10. Sorry I mean EA not early. Predictive ttext wrote that .

  11. Anyone else having trouble connecting and getting the message the early network can’t be reached at this time ?

  12. it was ok ,but am waiting for Halloween 2!

  13. Sorry if this sounds rude but do any of you know when halloween will be released and if they will be selling kodos and the raygun again this year because I would love to but them. Thank you for all the work you put into helping us fellow addicts out.
