Welcome to the Lifestyles of the Springfield Rich & Famous… errr… well, to a site writing about a new rich people expansion in TSTO. In our silly lil game, we sometimes see things pop in that we have no clue as to their Origin. They seem familiar, but we just can’t pinpoint from where. So that is why we decided to make a fun lil reminder out of it. To let you know just Where did THAT Come From?
So the Springfield Heights expansion brought us lots of new items with confounding leveling up of buildings, real estate values and tap-tap-tappery. Of course, it also brought lots of new stuff to find in the Best. Show. Ever. I’m sure by now we’ve all spent lots of precious time tapping away at the various tasked buildings of Springfield Heights. Of the six buildings earning Springfield Heights currency, Pharm-Er John’s Pharmaceuticals is the second longest and earns pills for various uses. Let’s check out the show to find this arthritis causing building, shall we?
“Midnight Rx” (S16:E6)
Mr. Burns throws a magical party at the Museum of Flight but has an ulterior motive. He’s actually terminating the employee prescription drug program. In fairness, the invitation did mention a nasty surprise. Now what is everyone supposed to do if they catch a nasty disease? The other companies of Springfield follow suit and it doesn’t look good for the citizens of Springfield. Krusty has become a bipolar clown. If only retail drug prices were reasonable. I don’t care what Hibbert says… he’s obviously “Sacrificed His Principles” for 6 hours.
Marge and Lisa head to Pharm-Er John’s Pharmaceuticals to find out why drugs cost so much. No surprise they just get the run around. They do hear an original song from Huey Lewis and the News advertising pharmaceuticals though so maybe not a complete loss.
So there you go tappers. The origin of the new building that makes your finger tired every 12 minutes. Happy to know where it comes from? Tired of making drugs for those corporate shills of Big Pharma? Wondering if you’ll ever have enough pills. I say we send Grampa to Canada to get us a surplus. Sound off in the comments and stay classy like usual.
TTFN… Wookiee out!
So, there’s no exploration of the character “Pharm-er John” in the show? Darn.
