Love, Springfieldian Style: Week 2 Questline Rome-Eh & Julie-Aye

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Love is in the air friends!  Yes, Valentine’s Day is back in our pocket-sized towns!  And this time around things are going to be done, Springfieldian Style.

Love, Springfieldian Style follows the same event structure that the Simpsons Christmas Special event followed.  This event consists of 4 parts (or Acts), with each part lasting a week and taking us through a new part of the event!

For Act 2 we’re tasked with following Willie’s Valentine’s Tale…and a tragic love story/battle with his nemesis Groundskeeper Wilma!  Willie is the narrator for this tale, so let’ take a look at what he has to say…

Here’s the story’s synopsis:

Willie thinks he has a better story to tell – about two groundskeepers working at the same school. The school needs to fire one of them, so it hosts a competition to determine who to keep. Wilma and Willie are tied in the competition all the way through, until it really ends in a tie. Wilma suggests they drink poison to determine the winner. It kills neither of them, and Skinner offers to keep them both at half pay. The thought of a pay cut makes them both quit. 

Now, on with the story!

Where ever you see the story italicized indicates the story that Willie is telling.  The regular font indicates real-time Springfield

Rome-Eh & Julie-Aye Pt. 1

Willie: I was living the life of a successful groundskeeper, sleeping in a shack and eating rock-hard tater tots. But so was Wilma, my colleague and rival.
Skinner: Willie and Wilma, I’m afraid the school needs to make even more cuts than usual, and we can only keep one of you. To decide, we’re going to do it the same way we chose which librarian to keep: a brutal, winner-take-all physical contest.

Willie: Actually, I just took the lead — pacing was the first event!

Rome-Eh & Julie-Aye Pt. 2

Willie: Aye, we’re an even match, Wilma. I’m starting to think we’ll never settle this. If we keep staying tied, we might as well tie the knot!
Groundskeeper Wilma: We’ll see about that. If anyone’s marrying anyone, I’ll be marrying you!
Willie: Arrgh, even the talks of wedding bells got our competitive blood boiling.

Skinner: The Groundskeeper-off is deadlocked at 68-68. The final contest is a race up the roof to clean all the gutters. Ready, Set, Go!
Groundskeeper Wilma: Say Willie, how about a date at the top of the roof?

Groundskeeper Wilma: No winner?! I can’t live like this. I’ve got to go be the best at another school.
Willie: Farewell, Wilma. I’ve never met a tougher or more beautiful competitor.

Rome-Eh & Julie-Aye Outro

  1. Sorry. This is kind of random and unrelated to this post, but I thought this was funny as i actually did this tonight:
    You know you are an addict and have been playing this game way too long when you’re watching an episode of The Simpsons on TV and you see Chief Wiggum in his police uniform and you quickly wonder why he’s not in his Stonecutter outfit earning at a premium rate!

    Maybe I shouldn’t play Tapped Out and watch The Simpsons at the same time.

  2. I got my 300 fertilizer bags and I’m going “Why won’t the questline complete so I can get Wilma?!” and then I realized I’m a moron and I did that thing you’ve been reminding everyone about over and over and over again…..I didn’t SCROLL UP to see Willie’s other task!! But at least I’ll have the final prize in four hours. Thanks Alissa for all your hard work and putting up with us 😀

  3. Can’t wait for more. I love my Simpsons game.

  4. Thanks a lot Alissa! This questline was perfect, except imho for the Bart part. I think it was completely random 🤔

  5. I finish all of act 2 and act 3 has yet to start. Is this correct. Anyone know when it starts ?
