Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
2019 is in full swing and we’re in the midst of our first new update of the year! The Not Yet Spring Cleaning mini-event brings a new prize track to Springfield, one full of buildings and a new character! For ease I thought I’d break the prizes down into two posts, one for the buildings and one just for Alice Glick and her animated task.
Remember, this event is designed to follow a series of tasks via the questline to unlock prizes. For each of the parts of the Mystery of the Brown House questline, you’ll have to earn via various character tasks in order to unlock the prize for that part.
So let’s take a look at Alice Glick and her animated task, the 3rd and 5th prize of this mini-event…
The Third prize is a brand new character for Springfield…Alice Glick:
And of course, you’re all wondering, what happens to Hot Flash? Hot Flash remains a separate character and not a costume for Alice.
How You Get it:
Mystery of the Brown House Pt. 3
Make Bart Undercut Lisa’s Big Moment- 4hrs
Collect Hard Candies- x350
Alice is a full character for Springfield…
And she’s part of the Oldies Character Collection…
Alice does come with her own questline, which you likely will not see until you’ve completed the mini-event questline (Mystery of the Brown House). Once that’s completed you’ll trigger Alice’s questline, A New Wrinkle on Dating. Here’s a look at Alice’s questline now:
A New Wrinkle on Dating Pt. 1
Alice Glick: Maybe I’ll give retirement home living a shot.
Old Jewish Man: It’s pretty nice. Plenty of room to shuffle around, and you get three squares a day. Although I prefer my squares rounded so I don’t cut my mouth.
Alice Glick: At least I’ll be the most spry person here.
Gil: Cha-cha-cha, this place is a dream! Even homier than the homeless center!
Alice Glick: What’s that whippersnapper doing here?! I’m supposed to be the ingenue, not him!
Make Ms. Glick Act Young- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
A New Wrinkle on Dating Pt. 2
Jasper: My favorite part of this show is when it cuts to extremely loud commercials — it’s the only thing I can hear.
Alice Glick: What is this lame show, dude? I want to watch music videos on MTV, man!
Jasper: MTV hasn’t played music videos since before I got my beard plugs.
Alice Glick: Give me that remote — I’ll find them!
Make Ms. Glick Try to Watch Music Videos- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
A New Wrinkle on Dating Pt. 3
Alice Glick: Ah, who am I kidding, I’m just an old crone. Try as I might, I’ll never be young. Guess I’ll just knit some socks. This is my life now.
Lisa: Whoa, are you crocheting?
Alice Glick: Go ahead, laugh at me. I deserve it for getting old.
Lisa: No, it’s cool! I saw it on Pinterest!
Alice Glick: Really? A young person like you thinks I’m cool?
Lisa: Well, I’m sort of an un-cool young person–
Alice Glick: A young person thinks I’m cool!
Make Ms. Glick Have a Knitting Circle- 8hrs, Earns $275, 70xp
A New Wrinkle on Dating Pt. 4
Gil: Man, I was killing it in today’s Senior Water Aerobics class! Unfortunately, the slippery floor was killing it too. R.I.P. Mrs. Henderson.
Alice Glick: Pff, water aerobics? Give me a break.
Gil: You think you can out-youth me?
Alice Glick: It’s called being a hipster. You do all the things old people do — knit, use typewriters, listen to records — but you do it “ironically”. Here, have some gross old-timey candy… ironically.
Make Ms. Glick Hand Out Mints- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Lisa: Wow, since when did the nursing home get so cool?
Jasper: Now my gross old man beard is a hipster beard.
Old Jewish Man: I found an old film camera in my closet, so I’m super into photography now!
Alice Glick: This place is really hopping. I feel so young again! Now I need to find a boyfriend…
A New Wrinkle on Dating Pt. 5
Alice Glick:I thought with my newfound youth, dating would be much easier. But it’s so time-consuming going out and trying to get to know people to see if I like their personality.
Shauna: Personality? Dating nowadays is about making a snap judgement about someone after two seconds of looking at them.
Alice Glick: Are you talking about dating apps? No one in here has a cellphone, so I can’t “swipe right” on them.
Shauna: Most of them are in wheelchairs though. If you like the way they look, swipe their wheelchair to the right.
Alice Glick: And if I don’t, swipe it to the left and never think of them again!
Make Ms. Glick Swipe Right on Dates- 1hr, Earns $70, 17xp
Alice Glick: Well, I instantly judged every guy in the nursing home, and I didn’t get to know any of them. I’m still alone, but I feel superior to everyone I rejected. Modern dating is great!
Once you’ve completed Alice’s Questline you’ll unlock any tasks for her that have not yet been unlocked. Here’s a look at Alice’s tasks…

And that’s it my friends, the details on the Alice Glick prizes from the Not Yet Spring Cleaning prize track!
For now, what are your thoughts on Alice? Her animations? Questline? Thoughts about Hot Flash not being a costume for Alice? Sound off below, you know we love hearing from you!
Pay Tribute -4hrs.
This task appears to have the animation of Alice feeding the house removed and instead just shows a house chomping animation. It’s winter in Springfield as I write, so the snowy design may be affecting the animation. Unfortunately it is more likely that * has demanded the joy be extracted from yet another medium, as is the trend (see the latest simpsons cartoons for many examples). In this case I would be delighted to be proven wrong!
I’m bummed that the Alice Glick quest has ended because I received her character but not she can’t do any of her quest cause I didn’t finish the quest before it ended to get her animation!! How do I make her do stuff now as all of her available quest are locked??!?
It says the same for me… BUT if you click on her name, scan down you see the knitting circle.
Make her do that, and she sits on a chair & knits with her cat for 8hrs.
I THINK that’s the end of the quest
I haven’t gotten any task quest line anything for days. Very irritated 😤
I can’t get her animation either. I did all the tasks up to part 4 and then the event directed me to her regular tasks. The task menu still showed the animation waiting to be completed. But now that her tasks are done everything is gone. WTH?
i have the same problem. i don’t see the animation after unlocking alick glick. also the questline hasn’t been active for 2 days now. xP.
i also wanted the sctable, but lacking 23 bonuts. why couldn’t they just sell it for 60 rather than 120 bonuts + 60 returned? *smh
I finished the entire questline, but the animation still isn’t showing as complete. Tapping on Alice Glick shows her tasks and none are highlighted as needing to be accomplished. Seems this is a bug?
It appears that way. It’s impacting a bunch of players, not all, but a bunch. My best suggestion is to contact EA…or wait for a patch.
I unlocked it and i dont see it either
how do i see the The knitting circle animation
Did you unlock it?
I finished all the tasks and the quest line is gone. Ms. Glick is not in town hall either. I tried storing her house and it won’t let me. I found her and am sending her on some of the quests to see if that will fix it. The animation won’t unlock. 😢
Is Ms. Glick’s questline still active?
No it’s not. I did figure out she’s Alice Glick in town hall not Ms. Glick
Thanks for the response.
My quest line is gone as well; but it’s incomplete. I have no idea how to finish it.
I haven’t been able to finish the spring cleaning tasks. When reviewing the summary of this ,I noticed a character named Shauna, I don’t have that character! How do I get her?
I liked that Alice Glick has a task at the Original Brown House and 2 tasks at her house as well as having 3 outdoor tasks which most characters only manage to get 2. It would of been interesting if her Act Young task went to Springfield University instead of the Retirement Castle. I was surprised that Lisa mentioned Pinterest in Alice Glick’s questline.
When’s the last time we got a new character with THREE animated tasks? I’m lovin’ me some Alice Glick! 🙂
Sorry if that message was sent in twice X/ my replies aren’t appearing above at all with the “awaiting moderation” message… technology hates me today lol
And the one without my question did post lol
Is anyone able to get Santa Homie to work post-Christmas?
It’s a task for Marge to sit on homers lap. Requires both homer and Marge to be free
I have them both free, and the Santa chair is out 🙁
And the task isnt listed under marge?
Thanks Alissa 😀 I keot looking for “Santa Homie” X/ I need to get more sleep lol
The dialog for this quest made me laugh — especially part 4 — “I found an old film camera in my closet so I’m super into photography now!” Lol
My go to animation is the “pay tribute” one, so I didnt bother to finish the last prize track. Not worth the time and effort
Where do you trade in the land tiles for donuts I searched the store and cant find it
Doesn’t appear until you have all of the land available purchased.
it only appears when you’ve purchased ALL available land in Springfield…
I have all the land. It is gone to trade for donuts. I don’t even know why they are doing this and if or when we will even be able to get more land. Not just that. We all should be able to put out more without building warnings. Its more fun to decorate and use what you want and put out as much as you want. Its more fun. It’s boring if you cant design your town the way you want it…
Agreed… My Friday Filler today is about just this.
She may not be voiced, but I ♥️ the Character and her Tasks 😉 (thanks EA for a nice Mini Event)👍
Thanks Alissa! The dialogs are the best part imho 😁
