Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

With the Holidays of Future Past nearing the end, it’s time to take a look at the full dialogue for this event.

First up, the tales of Empty Nest Marge and Retired Homer…

Here’s the little bit of dialogue that appears with the Mars Vacation:

Rove Around Mars
Retired Homer starts

Empty Nest Marge: Boy, Mars is a lot more… Mars-y than I was expecting.
Retired Homer: You don’t like it here? Is it the deadly vacuum outside? The complete lack of water? The insanely frigid temperature?
Empty Nest Marge: The atmosphere is making my hair flat.
Retired Homer: Well I like it. I’m less than half my weight here! Guess I don’t have to go on that diet Dr. Hibbert was bugging me about!
Empty Nest Marge: He wanted you to lose weight so you didn’t breach your space-suit!
Retired Homer: What?! I can’t hear you over this loud hissing coming from my space-suit– D’OH!

Empty Nest Marge: Well, you have all these empty bottles now. Why don’t you do something with them?

Empty Nest Marge: Well, you promised me you’d take me on a trip someday.

Everything Old is Old Again Pt. 1
Empty-Nest Marge starts

Zia Simpson: I’m such a loser… I’ve got a school dance tonight and I don’t have a date.
Empty Nest Marge: You’re not a loser, you’re cool!
Zia Simpson: I know I’m cool, that’s the problem! But being cool is terrible! It means you’re *trying*! Being a loser is way better, but not as good as being a nerd.
Empty Nest Marge: Is this like one of those opposite things, like where “bad” means “good”?

President Lisa: It’s not a bad thing. Grammas should be old and out of touch, that’s what makes them so sweet. You don’t want to be that pathetic grandmother who’s trying to use teen-age lingo and staying up with the latest fashion trends, do you?

Retired Homer: The trick is to let them play video games… and give them energy drinks… lots of energy drinks. Sometimes they keep drinking them in their sleep!
Empty Nest Marge: You’re letting our grandkids play violent video games?
Retired Homer: Marge, everyone plays violent games nowadays! Where have you been the last thirty years??
Empty Nest Marge: Mostly zonked out on pills…
Retired Homer: Speaking of which. Let’s go get wasted!

  1. So, I spent the sprinkles these two to kind of compensate for the lackluster Event Prizes (2 out of 5 ain’t bad?) …. and I agree, the longer Tasks are something new (what is new and no bueno, Empty Nest Marge and Retired Homer rely on each other for certain Tasks and you won’t trigger them by using the IRS Building – yeah they trend needs to stop cause Tappers already have a few Characters like this we complain over) 🤔

  2. The quest lines for OLD Marge and Homer were long.. which is a good thing, a change for sure from the short quests lines we usually have… at least that’s how I felt it was… It could be that maybe this time around I haven’t logged in to my game as often as before…

  3. I spend all my donuts on mystery boxes and it’s causing me to collect so many Lard Lards. They are taking up almost all my Springfield at this point. Is anyone else running into the same problem?
