I have to admit it…I had to go deep into Google to figure out who the heck Diane was. And going Google Deep is a scary thing sometimes. You have to be careful how you search. TSTO Diane can bring up all sorts of things that don’t make a lot of sense. Especially if you misspell TSTO. But, I digress…
Turns out the Diane is a “Big Wig” at Krustylu studios…or was. The WIKI tells us that, “She and the other executives wanted to cancel Krusty and replace it with Homer’s show. She is the one who fired Jeremy. And everyone remembers Jeremy…right?
OK. Fine. Just be glad that you got her for free. Here’s the details on why she is not going to be breaking the glass ceiling any time soon.
She is the final prize of Act I. She is mostly known for firing Krusty. But, she has some pretty funny tasks. Not exactly “Me too” material…but, she is certainly worth what you paid for her…right?
And speaking of Jeremy…Looks like he’ll be here soon as well!
Here are the deets on Diane.
Prize 6: Diane
Can Staff Rides at Itchy and Scratchy Land Gate
Questline – Making Frenemies and Inconveniencing People Pt. 1
Diane: My job title may say I’m a network programming executive, but really, I’m the head of a family. I surround myself with extraordinary minds. Doers. People who actualize what others only ideate. And, most importantly, people who I can stick the blame on when our ratings are in the toilet. NO ONE thinks firing people isn’t fun, but firing family? There’s nothing quite like it.
TASK: Make Diane Go on a Firing Spree-8hrs, Earns 120 , 50 , 70xp
Quimby: And…the town’s unemployment rate creeps over 30%. Wonderful.
Making Frenemies and Inconveniencing People Pt. 2
Diane: Ahhhh…I love that post-firing-spree glow. Colors just seem brighter after you’ve crushed dreams.
Quimby: You ARE planning on filling those vacancies with other Springfielders, correct?
Diane: Of course! But first, I have a drinks meeting scheduled with some of my subordinates.
Quimby:…who you just fired…
Diane: When you love meetings as much as I do, it doesn’t even matter if you’re alone.
TASK: Make Diane Enjoy Cocktail Hour- 4hrs, Earns 60 , 25 , 45xp
Diane: Eww. I thought I ordered a Manhattan.
Moe: They have watered-down ethanol in Manhattan!
Making Frenemies and Inconveniencing People Pt. 3
Diane: A successful TV executive is ALWAYS on the hunt for original show ideas. Sometimes you’ll be tempted to copy an idea from another network, and give it a twist. But that’s a fool’s errand: if the idea works, it doesn’t NEED a twist. Duh! Just change the title, cast Matthew Perry in it, and you’re good to go!
TASK: Make Diane Come up With “Original” Programming- 4hrs, Earns 60 , 25 , 45xp
Diane: This fall, Matthew Perry IS… Danny Storm, Uncle of Dragons, in…*Contest of Chairs! ” Genius!
Making Frenemies and Inconveniencing People Pt. 4
Diane: Now that I’ve created a sure-fire hit, it’s time to hire some folks to blame it on when it bombs.
Quimby: Yes, good! New jobs I can take credit for creating!
Diane: I need highly-qualified fall guys.
Quimby: Lady, that’s all we got.
TASK: Make Diane Host Interviews- 4hrs, Earns 60 , 25 , 45xp
TASK: Make Springfielders Apply For Jobs- x5. 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp Freemium and $260, 70xp
Diane: Homer, why should I hire you for this job?
Homer: Because this is one of only three jobs I’ve never had before. The others being lead gaffer and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Diane: Are you plugged in to the zeitgeist? How “up” are you on pop culture?Homer: Hmmm… I’d have to say “extremely.”
Making Frenemies and Inconveniencing People Pt. 5
Diane: So Mr. Simpson, let me explain your responsibilities as my new V.P. of Current Programming.
Homer: Oh, I wouldn’t bother.
Diane: How do you expect to do your job if you don’t know what it is?
Homer: I don’t expect to do it at all. But don’t worry. I always end up in the middle of the action. Often for really half-baked reasons. It’s called lazy writing, and it seems to work to my benefit.
TASK: Make Homer Be in the Thick of Things, Somehow- 4hrs, Earns 60 , 25 , 45xp
Diane: Homer, you’re fired.
Homer:‘ Bout time, idiot!
You will need to COMPLETE the Act 1 questline in order to unlock Bonuts for this event, simply unlocking Diane won’t do it. In order to complete the Act 1 questline you’ll need to complete a task triggered by Diane. That task will not start until AFTER her questline dialogue triggers. So start her questline dialogue but do not start her questline. Once that task appears in your task book you’ll trigger the final part of the Act 1 questline. For the Act 1 questline view this post.
