Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Now that the Holidays of Future Past event is officially in its final hours…ends tomorrow at 10am…it’s time to take a look back at the dialogue of this event! Just in case you missed it by tapping too fast…
Homer for the Holidays
Marge: 3…2…1…Happy New Year!
Homer: Okay, now let’s open the next year’s champagne!
Bart: Quiet! I’m Facetiming my friends on vacation in Hawaii and I don’t want to spoil New Year’s for them!
Lisa: Ugh, this family never changes. Mom went overboard decorating, Dad’s drunk, and Bart’s a jerk.
Marge: Lisa’s right. A little bit of a try-hard, but right. This year we’re all making New Year’s resolutions!

Bart: Fine. I’ll try to do better in school.
Lisa: If we stick to these resolutions, just imagine how amazing our lives could be…
Holidays of Future Past Pt. 1
Retired Homer: The fifty-one weeks of the Christmas season are over! I’ve gotta clean the house so I can hang the New Year’s Eve decorations for a few hours before putting the Christmas stuff back up.
Empty Nest Marge: Not so fast, Homie. I still have the last of the Christmas Duffs to drink!
President Lisa: Don’t worry, Dad, I’ll help you — after I hang with my friends at the hoverboard park.
Mooch Bart: I would help, but I’ve got to get down to the Robo-Homer factory. One of my workers accidentally typed “ROB-O-HOMER” and the assembly line is making robots that mug people.

Empty Nest Marge: Homie, you’re working too hard, I’m worried about you!
Retired Homer: It’s not so bad, Marge. When people call it “back-breaking labor”, they’re just being– *CRACK* Never mind.
Empty Nest Marge: We can’t go on like this! You and Bart work too hard, Lisa cares more about being cool than being with her family, and I’m a drunk mess!
Retired Homer: You’re right! When we decided to better ourselves all those years ago, we ruined our lives. Let’s make resolutions right now to reverse our old resolutions. New New Year’s Resolution Resolutions!
Holidays of Future Past Pt. 2
Empty Nest Marge: You relax and drink the rest of the Christmas Duffs. You only have to finish off these two cases. I’ll take care of the cleaning.
Retired Homer: I used to polish off two cases in my sleep! Which wasn’t good, since I did most of my sleeping while driving.

Gelatinous Homer: I don’t feel so good.
Holidays of Future Past Pt. 3
(Mooch) Bart starts
Mooch Bart: Mom and Dad gave up on their resolutions? They didn’t raise us to be quitters!
President Lisa: Those resolutions are the only thing our family has ever stuck to. Remember when we all went on the “paleo diet”?
Mooch Bart: Eating like cavemen, what were we thinking?! Pass me one of those genetically modified glowing super-grapes.
President Lisa: Maybe Mom and Dad are onto something. We were a lot happier back then…
Mooch Bart: The only thing I had to worry about was detention from Skinner. Now I have to worry about eviction notices from Skinner.
President Lisa: I’m going to go back to the way I used to be too! Hard work, no friends, and crippling anxiety, here I come!

(President) Lisa starts
President Lisa: I accidentally set Bart’s factory on fire. The old me never would’ve let that happen…
Empty Nest Marge: Those robots are short-circuiting and burning people’s houses down, so you actually did a good thing.
President Lisa: Still, I can’t believe I’ve changed so much.
Empty Nest Marge: Why don’t you try reading a good book like you used to? Here, I found this in the attic.
President Lisa: “Necronomicon”? I don’t remember my books being so old or evil-sounding, but I’ll give it a shot!

Holidays of Future Past Pt. 5
(Mooch) Bart starts
Mooch Bart: Face facts, Dad, we’ve changed too much to turn back into our old selves!

Retired Homer: I guess you’re right.
Cthulhu: You guys brought me back for this?!
Lisa: Does anyone else have a bad feeling about these resolutions?
Marge: You want to quit already?
Homer: C’mon, Lisa, I’ve already started to clean up these beer bottles.
Lisa: You’re just drinking the beer out of them!
Homer: I’m *cleaning* the beer out of them.

Lisa: It’s not like we’ll be stuck like this forever.
