Much Apu About Something Episode Tie-In Walkthrough: Big Jamshed

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Looks like EA dropped an episode tie-in in our laps this morning!  A fun little tie-in to correspond with this weekend’s all new episode of The Simpsons that airs this weekend.  And with it comes a brand new character…Jay!

Of course Jay comes with an all new questline so let’s take a look at the full dialogue version of this questline now….


Big Jamshed Pt. 1

Sanjay: Mys son little Jamshed is coming back to Springfield.  He’s been, as they say, stuck in limbo!
Homer: I’m not too good at limbo.  Those sticks are racist against fat guys.
Sanjay: Not that limbo!  I am talking about the state of transitional oblivion! In other words, college.
Make Sanjay Prepare a Room for Jamshed- If you don’t have Sanjay Apu will do this task, 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Homer: Word on the street’s that your son is taking over your spot at the Kwik-E-Mart.
Sanjay: It’s true.  I have de-cockroached my last squishee machine.  I want to do something different with my life.
Cool Homer: Ah, the old midlife crisis.  Too bad you’re not young, rad, hip, ballin’ and buzzfeedin’ like me, Daddy-o.
Sanjay: Mr. Simpson, you’re walking monument of a midlife crisis.
Cool Homer: Shows what you know, Dr. Hibbert said according to my cholesterol count my midlife crisis happened when I was 20. 


Big Jamshed Pt. 2
Jay starts

Jay: I’m ready to take my jam to the Kwik-E-Mart!  And all it took was a $200,000 business degree.  Now it’s time for some hot yoga!
Sanjay: Ah, my son – with maturity you have abandoned your anti-traditional views!
Jay: Nah, Pops, I’m still not down with that Indian shizz.  Yoga’s just what’s chill right now.
Make Jay Do Yoga- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
Lisa: You look a little…older that I remember.
Jay: Yeah, doing a full course load at Wharton while mopping floors in a bank all night will do that to a kid.
Lisa: Hmmmm…nobody around here ever seems to age.
Comic Book Guy: I credit clean living.  And yes, I said that without a trace of self-reflective irony. 

Big Jamshed Pt. 3
Jay starts

Jay: Why don’t I find it surprising that all the food is packed with unhealthy preservatives?
Homer: What’s your beef with preserved fake-beef?  The scientists at the National Preservatives Council say it’s good for you.
Jay: You should listen to my science Homer.  Look at me, I’m in awesome shape! Stop by, and I’ll show you how to make your favorite foods with kale and cauliflower. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll be able to manage a pushup!
Homer: I’ll have you know I’m an expert at the “lowering down” part of pushups.
Make Jay Prepare Food at the Kwik-E-Mart- 2hrs, Earns $110, 27xp

Big Jamshed Pt. 4
Jay starts

Jay: Come by the Kwik-E-Mart.  We have healthy vegetarian culture foods, and our new inclusive signature: the LGBTQIA sandwich!
Smithers: Sounds like my kind of lunch food!
Jay: It’s lentails, goat cheese, bacon, tomato, quinoa, iceberg lettuce and asiago.
Lisa: Wait a minute there!  There’s bacon in there!  How can you say that’s vegetarian?
Jay: I said vegetarian CULTURE.  Pure vegetarinaism is so “the aughts.”  WHy would you want to live without bacon?
Wiggum: He’s got you there, Lisa.  I eat so much of the stuff that people are always telling me they smell bacon when I’m around.
Make Jay Work a Kwik-E-Mart 1hr Shift- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Make Springfielders Buy Health Food- x6. 3hrs, Earns $135, 35xp freemium and $200, 55xp Premium.
Lisa: I sense a bit of hypocrisy.  You’re anti-Kwik-E-Mart, AND you work here?
Jay: It’s all about the Benjies, girl-dude.  I need to maintain my lifestyle somehow.  And the Kwik-E-Mart isn’t going anywhere.  You’d literally need a tank to take this place out!
Wiggum: Cool coincidence!  The police department is considering getting a tank right now!
Jay: No, piggy, I don’t mean LITERALLY literally!  I want to crush the Kwik-E-Mart from the inside and then set up my own store! A totally millennial, religiously void, and secular store!  How I wish for such a place!
Elephant: I can grant that wish for your own store… or for a tank!  Whichever method you use, just offer me some donuts!

Big Jamshed Pt. 5
Bart starts

Sherri/Terri: Teehee, hi, Bart!
Miss. Hoover: Another grey hair… my eye wrinkles are expanding… my tramp stamp is fading. WHAT’S GOING ON?
Dr. Nick: HI EVERY OLD BODY!!! What it seems you are experiencing is the natural process of aging!
Miss. Hoover: Aging? But I anti-oxidize and hydrate every day! What caused all of this? Is it something in the food?

Dr. Nick starts

Dr. Nick: Have you ever heard that “transfatty foods are bad for you?”  To that, I say: “Get real, everybody!” Countries that eat trans fats dominate the world!
Lisa: But correlation doesn’t equal causation.
Dr. Nick: I never said it did. I just said that eating trans fats makes you great!

  1. So my jay characters has half his jobs locked because they are quest related. But I’ve had him since the quest. I don’t know why they are locked. I swear I got through the whole thing. I just want them unlocked so he can actually do things. Suggestions?

  2. Jay’s cool and all, never will complain about a free non-NPC character, but…. I really REALLY want Little Jamshed to be a part of this game. Would almost rather have him than Baby Gerald…. Definitely would rather have Jamshed over Ling. Oh well, there’s still time, and we’re running out of charcters!! The gap between level 59 and 60 has to be the longest ever, right? Been watching since I’ve worn diapers and had to use this site to tell me where Gina Vendetti is from…. And while I’m going off on tangents…. Hoping Lionel Hutz and Troy McClure join our game soon. Classic character, though a real tragedy of the man behind the voice….

  3. Regarding bears not showing up in friend’s towns, it seems that the “Jamshed” update has changed the way this works. Before, even in a friend’s town that is no longer active, there were always bears. I think this was due to the “number of taps” maximum on pacifiers. Now, with the update, friends who are actively playing still have bears but the deserters do not, like most events. I also noticed that now I am getting pacifiers all the way through the last friend instead of it maxing out. Alissa, does this sound about right?

  4. El Chemistri finally has a task! Jamshed’s 12-hour task is there. I’ve always liked that building’s animation, so it’s nice that I’ll be seeing it more often than the few times a year that EA randomly would animate it. 🙂

    • You get a “great minds think alike,” too. Simp7 and I posted about this on the other thread, though by time stamps you were first. 😀

    • I was coming to post about the same thing! So exciting!
      (Herb Powell technically already had a task there, but it’s his one hour and I rarely used it. Now I’ll be able to animate the building almost constantly!)

      • Ah – I don’t have Herb, so I didn’t know that. Then I guess it’s just nice to have freemium character that also uses it. 🙂

  5. I’m a little behind on my posting (crazy couple of work days…), but I just wanted to say that I was so happy to see this post yesterday, because I was really perplexed by what was happening and, for some reason, the thought “episode tie-in” didn’t cross my brain. So, I found this post to be somewhat of a relief!

  6. I might be a little late on this, but I just won 5 donuts at Sideshow You in Krustyland. Is this new with the update or did I miss it in another post?

  7. Episode tie in…holds me over but I can’t believe we haven’t had level 60 yet…we normally get a level tossed in but I guess the event is not over yet.

    For those that can’t find bears in ‘other Springfield’ its because you can now only get bears from friends that actually played the event. As before you could get bears from any friend…now it limits you to those that played…and ‘other Springfield’ doesn’t play.

    But I do play…working on my first set of bonuts now.

    Another helpful hint…play with your sound on when searching for Maggie…that sucking sound really helps you when you are close. The first two times I played I had no sound and missed her, haven’t missed with the sound yet.

  8. I too can no longer find bears in my other springfield. 🙁

  9. I sent Jay on his 8hr “Do Yoga”-Task within the questline and now he just disappeared? Hardclosing didnt work, neither did Krustyland-and-back. Can’t find him via the town census nor is he shown in the “Apu Family” character collection. Am I missing sth here? Anybody else experiencing that?

    • Strange…if he’s now showing up in Town Hall I’d contact EA

    • This has happened twice to me so far, first time when I completed Sanjay’s opening task Jay never showed up until a few hours later. This morning I started the task for Springfielders to buy healthy foods, next time I came in Jay was gone again and those who were working on that task were wandering about.

    • Well, after another automatic update he was back in my game, still assigned to his yoga task. Almost as if he wasnt gone at all… Strange things happening in Springfield…

  10. A bit off topic, but did this update mess with the job manager, or did it just broke in my town? And by that I mean it suddenly finds only four characters anymore.

    • Seems to still be fine in my town…you might want to contact EA.

    • If characters have a yellow quest task, the job manager will not send them. After the yellow task is done it will disappear and the job manager can send them again. Since the recent task is send Springfielders to buy healthy food almost everyone can go so they all have the yellow task.

  11. Looks like the latest update has removed the vandalism on my moonshine shack too!

  12. same thing – no bears in other springfield

  13. This weekend’s all new episode airs this weekend? Who woulda thought?

  14. Ever since the most recent update, I can not find any bears in Other Springfield. Has anyone else had the same experience? I enjoy this site; I appreciate the assistance and guidance you provide. Thank you!

  15. Off topic, but when did Homer get his “surf the net” task? Too funny!

  16. Oh my god he is so cute…. I’m so excited to watch this episode and see more of him!!

    • Haha, c’mon. Is Apu cute? He’s basically Skinny Apu with a bad teenage mustache. I wouldn’t be surprised (even though Sanjay likely would be…) if he turned out to be Sanjay’s nephew….

  17. Anyone else lose the store items that came with this quest after opening it the first time? They are no longer showing up in my menu after buying the bell.

  18. What does the destroying of buildings look like with the tank

  19. Is this meant to be “Much (Apu or Abu) Something” ?

    • I think Alissa had Aladdin on the brain. Ever since we picked it up for Christmas, I keep wanting to say Abu too. It’s corrected.

      • I must confess I have had a monkey on my back… Well actually on my brain too. Ever since Lee mentioned the Springfeild Dump and the objects I’ve been stuck on the Planet Of The Apes event thought… This February, Chinese New Year rings in The Year Of The Monkey so the coincidence has be going a bit banana’s.

        Gone Fission ship is missing a special something, I haven’t seen the inflatable monkey-Santa sleigh decoration this Christmas, I do have King Kong Homer but not Mojo the monkey, and what about Luigi’s organ-grinder?, Mr. Burns room full of writers, Simpson’s Monkey Couch Gag skins, Meet Donkey Kong in person stand with Raphael, a few other things but of course Troy McClure and Dr.Zaius breakdancing.

        • All would be amazing… you should write something up about it or I could give it a go.

          • Well still I’m still figuring out how this addicts submitting post thing works. I’ll use my last Monkey’s Paw wish and hope that you write it up. :p

            Again if I received more feedback or even if there was a Post called “How to write and submit a TSTO Addicts post” thread I might be more inspired to write more. Hint hint. ;p

            You’re welcome to Email me Wookie if you wish to collaborate.

            • Lol… it’s called writing it, picking your pictures, and e-mailing it to the Addicts e-mail. I’ll add it to my honey do list of posts and I’ll e-mail you later about it.

          • Also just remembered Lynal Hutz just to hand out free Smoking-Monkeys (just to get him in there too)

    • Not to “B” picky but isn’t it also “Jamshed” and not “Jambshed” ? I’ll never win a spelling Bee and am usually forgiving on slight mistakes But it being in the main title just got me.

      Is Riley “B”having? Was Alissa stung by a Bee? “Abu” and “Jambshed” makes me wonder if Alissa is trying to teach Riley the Alphabet and stuck on “B” words – speaking of which I was surprised to see the new character use one himself 😮

      • lol it’s fixed…this is what happens when you have a screaming baby while typing lol

      • Tracy - 1ltwoody920

        To “B”, or not to “B”, that, appears, to B the question – and with a nod from Jay and his love of bacon, a life without the “B” in bacon is a life of ” achin” “.
        Enough already!
        Four days left in this event! Time to Level ’em up and Move it on!
        p.s. Feed and hug the little one so it quiets down and the life of Riley indeed remains the Life of Riley
