Tapped Out Event Walkthroughs: Sci-Fi Main Questline and Homer Easter Eggs

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The 2016 Sci-Fi Event brought us loads of witty dialogue..with fun twists, turns and a load of laughs!  

While we’ve had the Turbo Tappin’ version of each questline up for all of the questlines for a while now, we thought now would be a fun time to take a look back at all the dialogue and jokes of the freemium questlines of the event.  So if you missed any of the dialogue during the event we’ve got it all here for you!

So let’s get started with the complete dialogue main questline AND Homer Easter Egg walkthroughs for the Sci-Fi Event…stephenhawking_victory_pose_image_24

We’ll start with the main questline…

Act 1…

Dark Matters Pt. 1
Auto start

Frink: Ladies and gentleflavens, mark this day on your calendar! For today begins a glorious new age of scientific discovery!
Homer: 
Sorry, I already marked today as Taco Tuesday. And I wrote it in pen.
Frink: 
Sir, I don’t actually care about your salsa-stained calendar. I was trying to sound dramatic.
Homer: 
Try harder.
Frink: 
Very well. Behold my latest invention… drum roll please… with the drumming and the rolling… the PolyVac!
Lisa:
 Neat! What is it, some kind of super-computer-controlled particle detector for studying black holes?
Frink: 
Actually, little girl, it’s a super-computer-controlled, uh… yes, exactly. What she said.
Build the PolyVac- Free, 6s

Dark Matters Pt. 2
Auto start

Frink: Now, all we need to study a black hole is a, uh, black hole to study.
Bart: 
Black holes suck!
Marge: 
Bart! Watch your language, unless you meant that as a scientific observation.
Bart:
 Rest assured, madam, I did not.
Frink: 
The potty-mouthed lad is correct. Black holes absorb, or colloquially, “suck,” everything within their event horizon.
Bart: 
Dammit! I hate accidentally making scientific observations.
Marge: 
Professor, is it safe to have a black hole within just a few squares of our schools and peanut carts?
Homer: 
Relax, Marge, he’s a scientist! He wouldn’t ask us to do anything dangerous.
Frink: 
Quite right, Homer. Now grab a mouthful of that plutonium over there and spit it into this boiling acid to initiate the black hole implosion.
Homer:
 I’m way ahead of you!
Make Homer Spit Plutonium Into Acid to Form the Black Hole- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Frink: Now, using the PolyVac, I will prove once and for all that nothing can escape the black hole!
Lisa: 
But didn’t the great physicist Stephen Hawking theorize that black holes emit particles known as Hawking radiation?
Frink: 
Hawking Shmawking! I’m sick of that know-it-all with his fancy awards and his show-off chair. There’s no such thing as Hawking Radiation.
Hawking: 
That’s not what I heard.
Frink: 
Who said that, in a strangely familiar computerized voice?

Here’s where you’re Awarded Stephen Hawking unlock_stephenhawking

Dark Matters Pt. 3
Auto starts

Frink: Great Caesar’s Gloiven, it’s Stephen Hawking! B-but how did you get here?
Lisa: 
The Hawking Radiation condensed into a physical manifestation of Hawking himself!
Hawking: 
Thereby conclusively proving the existence of my namesake radiation. Now I’m sure to win the Nobel Prize, and maybe the even more prestigious Hawking Medal.
Frink: 
I’ve never even won the Frink Medal.
Hawking: 
I surmise black holes are actually terminal endpoints of wormholes leading to parallel universes. We’ll need someone brave and expendable to test my theory.
Homer: 
Not me, buddy! I’m sick of doing tasks. How come Moleman never has to do anything?
Moleman:
 Yes, pick me, please, I’m begging you.
Hawking: 
This sounds like a job for Homer Simpson.
Homer: 
Grrr. Okay. But I swear, crawling into this singularity is the last task I’ll ever do!
Hawking: 
Probably. Now wriggle on in there.
Homer:
 Sheesh, this wormhole is kind of tight… can you let out the event horizon a little?
Hawking:
 I said wriggle!
Make Homer Wiggle Through the Wormhole- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Homer: I hope you’re happy, Hawking. I proved your theory correct. I made it through the wormhole and lived three lifetimes in another dimension.
Hawking: 
And all you missed was Taco Tuesday.
Homer: 
This is the worst day of my lives!

Dark Matters Pt. 4
Auto starts

Hawking: The multiverse is ripe for exploration! So much work to do! Homer, imagine all the work you’ve ever done, then multiply it by infinity.
Homer: Zero times infinity? How much is that?
Hawking: 
About 37. Get busy!
Make Homer Do 37 Experiments for Hawking
Homer: Forget it, Egghead! No more tasks for me! From now on, whenever anyone sends me on a task, I’m going to refuse!
Make Homer Refuse to Do a Task
Homer: No! I refuse! Heh heh.
System Message: 
Goal Complete! Congratulations, you completed “Make Homer Refuse to Do a Task.” Collect your reward!
Homer: 
D’oh! I’ve gotta get more clever here. To be truly lazy, I’ll need to assemble an all-star team of super-dupes to take over my workload.
Make Homer Kidnap Alternate Homers from Other Universes- 6s, Earns $35, 1xp
Homer: I’m back. Or should I say, WE’RE back! Meet the alternate universe all-stars!
Strongman Homer: Hello.
Evil Homer: 
Charmed.
Cool Homer: 
What up, Ho-bro.
King Size Homer: 
*CHEWING AND BELCHING SOUNDS*
Barbarian Homer: 
Glargggh!
Lisa: 
Wow, two of them couldn’t speak at all. Yet they still seemed slightly smarter than Dad.

Alternate Homers

Homer: This is awesome! A small army of Homers, and I’m the average guy. Which makes me the best!
King Sized Homer: 
You’re the best at nothing! Me? I can overeat better than anyone here, and check out my excellent figure.
Strongman Homer: 
In my universe, I’m Mr. Universe!
Barbarian Homer: 
Me pillage good!
Cool Homer: 
It’s all cool, homies. I like my music and my universes to be Alternate.
Evil Homer:
 I suppose I’m the prankster of the group. Always up for a round of good-natured criminality.
Homer: 
Welcome to my universe, fellas! Sorry if it’s a little cheap looking. My Sky Finger is kinda tight with the donuts.
Evil Homer: 
Oh, don’t sell yourself short! This universe may be a bit shabby, but it’s far superior to mine.  My Sky Finger only made it to level two before devoting his life to Candy Crush Saga!  I don’t even have my own Marge! I have nothing but a fence post and a pathetic 1×1 square of flowers! But this universe is a veritable cornucopia of riches, ripe for the plucking… mwahahaha!

Dark Matters Pt. 5
Auto start

Bart: Look, there’s something else coming through the space sphincter! A real live robot!
Robot 1: I AM ROBOT NUMBER 1.
Lisa: 
Here comes another!
Robot 2:
I AM ROBOT NUMBER 2.
Homer: 
I wonder what the next guy’s name will be.
Robot 4: 
I AM ROBOT NUMBER 4. BUT YOU CAN CALL ME ROBOT NUMBER 3.
Bart: 
There comes another… and another!
Hawking: 
That makes five.
Frink: 
Quit showing off, Hawking.
Comic Book Guy: 
A veritable army of robots from a parallel universe. What could go wrong?  …I said in the most sarcastic way imaginable. …Which is how I say everything, so I can understand if there was some measure of confusion regarding–
Robot: 
ROBOTS… ATTACK!!!!!!!
Comic Book Guy: 
Swish.
Brockman:
 I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords.
Hawking:
 Fight back! Every able-bodied man, woman, and child!
Homer: 
That’s everyone but you!
Hawking: 
Less talking, more fighting.
Tap Some Robots- x5

Dark Matters Pt.6
Auto start

Homer: My Homers versus your robots!
Hawking: They’re not my robots.
King-Sized Homer: Help! I’m being beaten to a king-sized pulp!
Lisa: It’s no use! There’s dozens more robots pouring out of the wormhole!
Homer: 
Tapping isn’t working, and it’s our only interface!
Frink: 
I have an idea!
Hawking: 
I have a better idea. Fire up the PolyVac!
Use the SciFighter
Lisa: What was that flash?
Hawking: 
A burst of Hawking Radiation. I destroyed the robots, proving once again that brute force is no match for the human mind……when accompanied by a tremendously powerful particle-beam weapon.
Robot: 
Revenge!
Lisa: 
Oh no! They’re still coming!
Hawking: 
Guard the PolyVac until it can recharge for another Hawking burst!
Bart: 
Less talking, more Hawking!

First SciFighter Win..

Lisa: We did it! We destroyed the robots!
Bart: 
What else can we blow up? Grampa’s dentures? Martin’s underwear?
Nelson: 
Haw-Haw! I was able to visualize that.
Hawking: 
I’d like to blow up all those things and more. But unfortunately, the PolyVac has a four-hour cooldown time.
Frink: 
According to the, uh, laws of science and what have you, most things take four hours.

First SciFighter Loss…

Lisa: Crud, the robots defeated us. This could be the end of the human race!
Nelson: Haw-Haw! And I direct that partially at myself. I can dish it out, but I can also take it.
Hawking: 
Relax. We’ll be fine. The PolyVac should regenerate in four hours.
Frink:
 According to the, uh, laws of science and what have you, most things take four hours.

Dark Matters Pt. 7
Auto start

Lisa: Professor Hawking, can’t we stop the robot invasion by just closing the wormhole?
Hawking: 
Easier said than done. I recruited a local expert on String Theory to advise us, but her analysis is somewhat difficult to follow.
Crazy Cat Lady: 
BALLSOFSTRING! BALLSOFSTRING!
Hawking: 
For now, our only hope of survival is to place a highly skilled nuclear engineer in control of the PolyVac. Homer, can we count on you?
Homer: 
I’m your man! I’m really good at pressing buttons! Unless they’re close together. Or far apart
Frank Grimes:
 Oh, God. You’re relying on Homer Simpson to keep us alive? I’m the only competent engineer in this entire town!
Hawking: 
Competent? Didn’t I pass your grave already?

Auto start

Hawking: As long as the wormhole remains open, we can take the battle to parallel universes!
Homer: 
Parallel universes? Put it in terms we can understand, Poindexter!
Hawking: 
*sigh* Just think of them as your “Friends’ Towns.”
Tap 3 Robots in a Friend’s Town

After tapping an Anomaly

Otto: Whoa, man, what’s that crazy shape? I’d like to see science explain that! ‘Cause it can’t!
Frink:
 Yes it can, my young mind-altered friend. That is clearly the three-dimensional analog of the square, which I modestly dub the “Frinkohedron.”
Hawking: 
It’s called a cube, you boob! 

What’s the Matter? Pt. 1
Hawking starts

Hawking: To understand the nature of the wormhole, we’ll need to gather matter samples from a number of other universes.
Homer: 
Team Homer is on the job! And as coach of the team, I’ll be in the coach’s hammock.
Hawking: 
Very well. You other Homers, travel through the wormhole and liberate a few items of exotic matter.
Evil Homer: 
Liberate? That’s one of my favorite synonyms for larceny!
Homer: 
We’re stealing stuff?! Woo-hoo!

Hawking: This exotic matter the Homers obtained is fascinating! What a boon to science!
Marge:
 That’s nice, Professor Hawking, but the robots are still attacking! I know it’s hard to see at this pixel resolution, but a lot of us have very serious wounds.
Hawking: Well, there’s not much I can do about that. We’ll just have to get used to living in a world where a never-ending line of robots are continually murdering us. Science offers no means to stop them.
Ned: 
Then it’s time for prayer!
Hawking: 
Oh, Lord.
Ned: 
That’s the spirit, Professor! We call upon the Lord to smite these wicked robots! Everyone, bow your heads in prayer to the Almighty One…The Sky Finger.

What’s the Matter? Pt. 3
Hawking starts

Ned: Seeing the finger of God smash the robots of science makes ya think, doesn’t it, Dr. Hawking?
Hawking: 
I’m always thinking! What does it look like I’m doing?
Bart: 
Don’t have a cow, man! That’s what I used to say as a boy.
Hawking: 
The Sky Finger is not a god. It’s a natural phenomenon, easily explainable by, uh, basic laws of physics that we don’t yet understand.
Ned:
 Then how is it that the Sky Finger can make us do his or her bidding, with a simple tap of his or her mighty finger?
Bart:
Let’s just assume it’s a him.  And that his cubicle is littered with vending machine pastry wrappers.
Hawking:
 I respect your ludicrous blathering, Ned. But the Sky Finger does not control me.
Make Stephen Hawking DJ Some Tunes- 1hr, Earns 33ico_cur_scifi2016_darkmatter_lg, 17xp
Hawking: Okay. I acknowledge that the Sky Finger is an entity of power. But it’s still not a god. For no god would force me to spin records all day!
Ned: 
The Lord works in mysterious ways. Can I get an amen and a little more subwoofer?

 

What’s the Matter? Pt. 4
Hawking starts

Hawking: Whatever the Sky Finger is, it must be governed by the laws of science. To fall back on supernatural explanations means giving up the will to understand our universe.
Ned: 
Understanding is overrated. Just do as the Sky Finger commands, and enjoy the calming numbness of true faith.
Hawking: 
Never! As an independent thinking being, I choose to exercise my free will and ponder the nature of the Sky Finger!

What’s the Matter? Pt. 5
Hawking starts

Hawking: Logic demands that we consider an alternate hypothesis. Perhaps we’re all actually living in a simulation… a virtual world manipulated by the Sky Finger.
Frink: 
Like a video game?
Hawking: 
No, nothing like that.
Marge: 
Professor Hawking, while you’re gassing on, the robots are continuing their attack! Luckily it’s mostly stab wounds so far. But still, the sheer quantity of stabbing is hard on people. Particularly the children. 
Hawking: 
Great, now I lost my train of thought. Homer, block as many knife thrusts as you can absorb while I consider whether I’m really just a simulation.

Hawking: I’ve come to a conclusion: I am NOT a simulation. For truly, any being capable of contemplating such a question is by definition sentient.
Lovejoy: 
That’s super.
Hawking:
 I may never understand the Sky Finger. But that doesn’t diminish my personal dignity.

Hawking: I’ve come to a new conclusion: the Sky Finger is a Sky Jerk!
Flanders: 
Blasphemy! Thou’st mayn’t taketh the Finger’s name in vain!
Hawking: 
The Finger giveth and I giveth the finger.
Flanders: 
Clever. But still blas-diddly-asphemous!
Hawking: 
I’m tired of thinking so hard. And I’m tired of rolling up and down stairs! Haven’t you people ever heard of a ramp? It was invented thousands of years ago! What kind of society has black hole generators, but no ramps?!

Quimby: By the power vested in me by the unelected superdelegates, I hereby decree that all buildings are now required to have ramps.
Hawking: 
Thank you.
Quimby:
 Let us bow our heads and pray to Sky Finger that such ramps might miraculously be built.
Hawking:
 Oh, for Finger’s sake! Just forget it, I’ll use the stairs.

What’s the Matter? Pt. 8
Hawking starts

Hawking: Perhaps I’ve been viewing this through the wrong lens…
Bart: 
Like that time I put on Milhouse’s glasses and caught lice.
Hawking: 
If the Sky Finger is an intelligent, albeit non-divine being, physics may not be the best approach to understanding it.  Instead, I need to employ that lowest of pseudo-sciences… psychology.
Marvin Monroe:
 I take offense! Psychology is the most rigorous of the self-help infomercial sciences.
Hawking: 
Sky Finger, it’s time you and I had a serious discussion.
Make Stephen Hawking Rocket Around Town- 8hrs, Earns 33ico_cur_scifi2016_darkmatter_lg, 70xp
Hawking: Observation: this rocket chair makes ramps obsolete. And it’s, like, totally fun!

What’s the Matter? Pt. 9
Hawking starts

Hawking: I get it now! The Sky Finger is merely a cosmic child! A powerful being with infinite time to waste! To keep the Sky Finger happy, we just need to offer it things to play with! 
Lovejoy: 
Just as the ancients offered up blood sacrifices unto the Almighty!
Hawking:
Yes. Except instead of a freshly slaughtered goat, we’ll offer it digital shrubbery, brightly colored dumpsters, and other such treasures.
Flanders: 
So science and religion are in agree-diddly-eement?
Hawking: 
It’s not an agreement! More of a, uh, covenant.
Flanders: 
No fair, that’s our word!
Marge: 
This is all well and good, but what about the army of bloodthirsty robots invading from another dimension?
Hawking: 
I heard you the first time, Marge. We’ll let the Sky Finger play with the PolyVac. That’ll keep its juvenile mind busy so I can think without him tapping me all the time.

Smack to the Future Pt. 1
Hawking starts

Hawking: There’s something strange about this wormhole from another dimension.
Wiggum: 
How so?
Hawking: 
Robots are emerging at a rate of ten thousand kilotonnes per hour. But the mass of the remote universes is only decreasing at a rate of one microgram per century!
Homer: 
This is America, sir! I’ll kindly remind you not to use the metric system unless you want your face punched off.
Hawking:
 Let’s examine the robot guts more closely. Hey Sky Finger! Play with your funbots!
Tap a Robot
Lisa: What are those things popping out between the microprocessor and the steam valve?
Hawking: 
They’re chronons! The quantum of time!
Frink: 
Of course, that explains everything! I’m assuming.
Hawking: 
Don’t you see? The robots aren’t coming from another space. They’re coming from another time!
Evil Homer: 
Crafty!

Smack to the Future Pt. 2
Hawking starts

Hawking: Based on the polarization and general demeanor of the chronons, I deduce that these robots are invading from the future.
Lisa: 
Aha! Then we’ve just got to wait until the robots are built, then stop them before they come!
Hawking: 
Exactly. But that might not be for hours, or even centuries.
Frink: 
B’hoy! Let’s use donuts to speed up time!
Hawking:

Hawking: Bart? Have you been shooting chronons at the black hole?
Bart: 
Probably. I shoot a lot of stuff at a lot of things.
Hawking: 
This is incredible! You’ve opened up a gateway to the future. We need to send a scouting party through, to ascertain what fate awaits us. Professor Frink, you’re not helping much around here. Lead this ragtag band of Homers on a journey of scientific exploration.

Homer: And… we’re back.
Hawking: 
Did you locate the future source of the robot army?
Homer: 
No, we totally forgot about that. But we sure plundered everything that wasn’t nailed down!
King-Sized Homer: 
They nail things down in the future because stuff tends to hover.
Lisa: 
Wait, where’s Professor Frink? He didn’t come back!
Hawking: 
He must have become stuck somewhere in the distant future. Act 3, most likely.

Hawking starts

Marge: I hate to nag, but I’m still being stabbed by robots from the future. Ow! Does anyone have a tourniquet?
Hawking: 
Hmm. Maybe we can turn this time tunnel to our advantage. I’ll use the parts from the smashed evil robots to build GOOD robots. Then I’ll send them into the future to stop the evil robots before they travel to the past!
Lisa: 
Hooray! We will have been saved!
Hawking: 
I’ll just bolt these robot scraps together, like so, then program in the three laws of robotics.
Flanders: 
Heavens to heckaroonie, that won’t work! If you want goodness, the program you need is “GOTO 10.” The Ten Commandments, that is!

Hawking:
 What is wrong with you people? You’re prattling on while I’m trying to save your lives and your universe!
Flanders:
..and thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s Barney’s Bowlarama, and… done. Okily dokily, now you can save us.

It appears there was a polarity error in my computation of the chronon spin matrix.
Barbarian Homer: 
Blarrrgh?
Hawking: 
My army of good robots didn’t go to the future… they went to the past!
CBG: 
Uh, hello? That makes no sense. If they went to the past, we would have seen them come out.
Lisa: 
We did see them come out! The robots we just sent into the time hole WERE the robots that attacked us in the past!
Flanders: 
But the robots we built were good, God-fearing robots! What would make them turn evil?
CBG: 
There’s only one logical answer. Somebody must have sabotaged their programming. But who?

Evil Homer: 
What, I? How preposterous. Admittedly, I’ve been scheming… but about something completely unrelated, and yet to be revealed.
Homer: 
Then who did it?
Lisa: 
Hang on… there was someone else trying to control the robots with ten, count them, TEN commandments! It was Ned Flanders! He must have converted the robots into religious zealots, programmed to punish the sins of humanity!
Flanders:
 Gosh, I guess it WAS me. Well, forgive and forget, right? I believe that’s in the Bible. Right after “an eye for an eye.”

Why not?

Checkmate.
Hawking: 
You people drove me insane! Everything you do and say is totally anti-science. My sympathy lies with the reasonable, rational killbots.
Robot:  
And we like Professor Hawking, because he doesn’t have a weird human accent.
Homer: 
You won’t get away with this, Hawking! Save us, mighty Sky Finger! Smash the robots!
Hawking: 
Go ahead! I’ll just use the pieces to make even more robots! That’s why they’ll never stop coming!
CBG: 
Curses. Unlike most time travel stories, this one has no logical flaws whatsoever. We are defeated
Homer:
 I’m not giving up that easily. Fight, everyone! Fight for my very life!

Act 3…

Hawking: The destruction is nearly complete. And all because of the simple changes I made to the three laws of robotics.
Robot: 
First Law: Obey Master Hawking. Second Law: Hurt everyone else.  Third Law: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s ox.
Flanders: 
Yes! Snuck one in there!
Hawking: 
Now, for the final step of my plan, I will upgrade myself into a huge and terrifying robot. It will require a fortune in game money, and twenty years of tapping!

Judgement Day Pt. 1
Hawking starts

Mecha Hawk: Greetings from the year Twenty Years From Now!
Hawking: 
Who are you?
Mecha Hawk:
 I am Mecha Hawk, better known as you from the future! Fully upgraded and ready to lead the robot army against the scientifically challenged.
Hawking: 
Sounds good!
Mecha Hawk:
…Starting with you, Professor Hawking! For you see, some of your theories turned out to be a little off!
Hawking: 
… Help! Sky Finger!
Fend Off Mecha Hawk with the PolyVac- Play (and win) the Sci Fighter game at the PolyVac 

If you lose…

Lisa:  The robots are winning! They’re much tougher than before!
Hawking: I have mixed emotions. Like any father, I’m proud of their success. I just wish they were in a different line of work.

A Matter of Fact
Hawking starts

Hawking: If we could shrink the black hole somehow, we could cut off their gateway from the future.
Bart: 
What if I shove a big old cherry bomb in there?
Hawking: 
No! Any matter or energy will just make the hole larger. And thus more comfortable to invade through.
Lisa:
 What about antimatter?
Hawking: 
Even worse! The antimatter will annihilate with matter to create huge amounts of energy, which will convert back into still more matter. It’s hopeless!
Frink: 
Or is it?!
Hawking: 
Professor Frink?! Where did you come from?
Frink:
 I time traveled here from Act Two, remember? Now heave that antimatter on in there! Trust me for once!
Make Stephen Hawking Heave Antimatter into the Black Hole- 4hrs, Earns 33indicator_scifi_matter, 45xp

Judgement Day Pt. 2
Homer starts

Frink: Did you see that fantabulous flash as the antimatter went into the black hole? 
Homer: 
I was waaaay deep in a nap, but I’ll take your word for it.
Hawking: 
Strange. It didn’t look like Hawking Radiation.
Frink: 
It wasn’t. It was FRINK Radiation! With the noises, and the blinding lights, and the things of that nature.
Lisa:
 It seems to have dazed the robots! And even Mecha Hawk!
Hawking: 
I don’t see how this is possible, but what do I know.. …other than nearly everything. Quickly! Shove more antimatter in the black hole!
Collect Antimatter- 1,500
Make Alternate Homers Throw Antimatter into the Black Hole- x4.  4hrs, Earns 33indicator_scifi_matter, 45xp Each. (You cannot prestart this.  The quest for the Alternate Homers will only appear once you’ve triggered Judgement Day pt.2 )
Use the PolyVac to Fend Off Mecha Hawk

Judgement Day Pt. 3
Hawking starts

Frink: Hot pastrami! Score another point for Frink!
Hawking: 
I’m deeply embarrassed. My equation for Hawking Radiation omitted the third-order effect of Frink Radiation.
Mecha Hawk: 
A scientific error of the most trivial and therefore worst kind. Accordingly, you must die!
Homer: 
Not on my watch, buddy! By which I mean those other Homers’ watch. More antimatter, somebody!
Collect Antimatter- 2,750
Use the PolyVac to Fend Off Mecha Hawk Yet Again

Judgement Day Pt. 4
Hawking starts

Hawking: It’s working! Mecha Hawk’s arm just fell off!
Mecha Hawk: 
How could I not have seen this coming? I’m YOU from the future! I should remember this!
Hawking: 
Your arm landed on my head and gave me amnesia.
Collect Antimatter- 5,500
Use the PolyVac to Fend Off Mecha Hawk….AGAIN!

Judgement Day Pt. 5
Homer starts

Mecha Hawk: You may think you have the upper hand with your antimatter and your amnesia. But I’ll have the last laugh!
Homer: 
Since when do robots laugh? I thought you guys were emotionless.
Mecha Hawk: 
Technically, I’m really more of a cyborg. I still have a brain, three sweat glands, and a toenail. But the point is this: I’m equipped with a doomsday device. If you attack me again, I’ll destroy Springfield!
Hawking: 
If I know me, he’s bluffing! Let him have it!
THIS is the point in which your Springfields caught on fire…part of this questline
Hawking: On the other hand, he might not be bluffing.
Homer: 
Okay, Mecha Hawk. Now it’s personal!
Marge:
 It wasn’t personal when the robots were stabbing me?
Homer: 
I have to draw the line somewhere.
Collect Antimatter- 8,250
Use the PolyVac to Defeat Mecha Hawk Once and For All

Once completed your Springfield will no longer be on fire…

Judgement Day Pt. 6
Homer starts

Homer: We did it! We defeated Mecha Hawk and his robot army!
Hawking: 
Professor Frink, for your tremendous contribution to the field of astrophysics, I hereby award you the prestigious Hawking Medal.
Frink: 
This is by far the greatest honor of my career. And I, likewise, award you the Frink Medal.
Hawking: Whatever.
Marge: 
I hate to interrupt this one-way love-fest, but the wormhole is starting to smoke and belch fire!
Homer: 
Like Patty and Selma!
Hawking: 
This is rather worrisome. If I could scream, I would. For a long time.

Hawking: The wormhole is about to blow in a cataclysmic blast of both Hawking AND Frink radiation. We’ve got to shut it down!
Frink: A
ccording to my calculations here, with the scribbles, a sudden influx of sufficient mass should cause a hypothetical “worm clog.”
Hawking:
 Quite so. But it will require the mass equivalent of a small planet! Specifically, the entire mass of FIVE Homers.
Homer: 
Hey, it’s rather insensitive of you to talk about my weight like that!
Hawking: 
I’m talking about the alternate Homers!
Homer: 
Oh, yeah, those guys are total pigs.
King-Sized Homer: 
I’d be offended if I wasn’t such a pig.
Hawking: 
Five Homers came out, five must go back in. To the hole!

Return to the Status Quo Pt. 2
Hawking starts

King Sized Homer: So we just jump into that featureless void?
Hawking: 
Exactly. I couldn’t have phrased it better myself.
Cool Homer: 
And you said that will safely return us to our home universes?
Hawking: 
I said no such thing. Move it along!

Return to the Status Quo Pt. 4
Homer starts

Lisa: And away they go. That just leaves Regular Homer… and ANOTHER REGULAR HOMER?!
Hawking: 
Something’s wrong! Only four Homer masses went into the hole!
Bart: 
Wait a second… look over here, behind this decoration! There’s a monocle, a cape, and two mustache halves!
Lisa: 
Evil Homer must have shaved and removed his costume! He looks exactly like dad now!
Homer: 
Mu-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Homer: 
You’ll never get away with this, Evil Homer!
Homer: 
I’m not Evil Homer! You’re Evil Homer!
Bart: 
Which fatso is which?
Homer:
 There’s only one way to settle this. An identical sci-fi twin fight!
Homer: 
Take this, and this!
Homer: 
I got a knuckle sandwich for you!
Homer: 
Mmm, knuckle sandwich.
Moe: 
Geez, them two identical Homers are pretty evenly matched.
Marge: 
Be careful, Homie! You’re right near the event horizon!
Lisa: 
Oh no! One Homer threw the other into the wormhole!
Make One of the Identical Homers Fall in the Wormhole- 8hrs, Earns $550, 140xp (this is animated, and hilarious)
Frink: Hurrah! That makes five Homers’ worth of mass.
Hawking: 
The wormhole is now successfully clogged. Once again, science has saved the day!
Homer: 
Everything worked out nicely.
Lisa: 
But… which Homer are you? The dad one or the evil one?
Homer: 
You know, I’m honestly not sure. During the fight I got punched really hard on my bald spot, and now I also have amnesia.
CBG: 
Multiple amnesia… the sign of top quality sci-fi writing.
Lisa: 
Hey dad, when did you put on that monocle?
Homer: 
I always wear a monocle. Or do I…?
Hawking: 
And that’s what we call the uncertainty principle. Thanks for playing, everyone!


And now here’s a look at the Homer Easter Eggs we talked about here

Homer Barbarian Commanding Troops

Barbarian Homer: Me better take outfit off. Them confuse me with same-looking inter-quantum-dimensional guy.  Also, blarg.

Tapped_Out_Cool_Homer_

Cool Homer: I have more cool in my little finger than that alternate cool guy has in his entire hat.

King-Size_Homer

King-Size Homer: Does this count as the world record for the multiverse’s fattest twins?

Homer_Strongman

Strongman Homer: Leave the body-building to the other strong Homer! I’ve done enough squat thrusts to last a lifetime. One.


And there you have it my friends…all the fun of the main Sci Fi event questlines!

Did you enjoy rereading all the dialogue from the event? Were there any parts you missed?  Any jokes you didn’t catch the first time around?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  2. I’m having a really hard time placing all these huge buildings. I don’t like “covering up” other items. These things are just too big 😦

    • then don’t. I have tons of them in storage.

    • I agree that it’s difficult, and I generally prefer smaller buildings, too.

      To place larger buildings, without obscuring other stuff too much, you need more land, so you can leave some “empty” space behind the larger buildings. I also tend to place really big stuff along the mountain range or at the outskirts of my town (although the “outskirts” tends to become the “inskirts” as new events/items cine into the game 😉 ).

      • oh but land is so valuable. I hate to waste space too. It’s so frustrating! 🙂 But I’m redesigning my town and it’s looking better

        Liked by 1 person

        • Oh, I agree…I tend to be fairly frugal with my land (and I was super-frugal with it back when I was still a lower and mid-level player….land was so hard to buy!). I still only buy land as I need it and have a bunch left to buy still. But even a little more space between things (front to back) can really help, and putting taller things at the edges is a big help, too.

          Good luck with your designing, and, most importantly, have fun! 🙂

  3. Can please explain this too me!!!!! When you scroll in the character list, I found “robots” characters, the last two characters are the two robots that appear in the polyvac. HOW WOULD YOU OBTAIN THEM? Or their purpose?

  4. I usually read all the dialogue, but I somehow double tapped Mecha Hawk’s dialogue when my Springfield set on fire so I had no idea what was going on lol

  5. It looks like next will be something with a mall,because the last two was like description said.

  6. Thanks Alissa. Some of the best writing I’ve seen in the game. I missed a couple a bits of it through being at work and whizzing through it just to do the polyvac.
    I appreciate you taking the time for us.

  7. I think this event had some of the best writing I can remember in all of the events I’ve played so far! I pretty much never read these walkthroughs, because I usually don’t feel any desire to go through all of the dialog again, but this time I really did (and enjoyed it all over again!).

    (Don’t get me wrong with what I was saying about not reading the walkthroughs…I still think having them is a great idea!)

  8. OK figured it out! PolyVac is giving out SH resources after the update. Tap robots, got ipads and mats

  9. Sooooio, we are not getting a 2nd round of scifi event ? 🙂 . Lol jk. I forgot how funny the dialogue in this event was. Thanks Alissa for posting walk through all on one page, bc Initially I usually just tap my way through and only read dialogue half of the time.

  10. What is the new game? I tried to play and it is telling me my resources are capped?? Did I miss a post?

  11. Ok, that was a waste of time!
