Bucks Given Pt. 1
Homer: Look, Buck. I know you’re happily married again, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a happy home run hitter too.
Buck Mitchell: I’m sorry, Homer. I think I caught a bad case of the yips on my honeymoon!
Homer: And how long do these “yips” tend to last?
Buck Mitchell: It depends: sometimes a week, sometimes forever. Man, I can barely swing a bat.
Homer: You must find balance, Buck. The Isotopes need you. I need you.

Make Buck Mitchell Try to Have the Best of Both Worlds– 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Buck Mitchell: I have to find a way to get a competitive advantage. Ugh, I wish I played for one of those Boston teams — they all know how to cheat.
Marge: Isn’t cheating wrong though?
Buck Mitchell: Baseball is all about cheating. It’s one big fat cheating fest.
Marge: Maybe you should just work harder in practice?
Buck Mitchell: Practice? You wanna talk about practice? Practice? Practice?!
Marge: Yeah, practice.
Buck Mitchell: Okay, sure. I’ll practice.
Bucks Given Pt. 2
Homer: Look, Buck. To get over your bad play you have to drown out the boos and heckles. Just ignore all the haters.
Buck Mitchell: I have haters?
Homer: Oh, tons! So many.
Buck Mitchell: It won’t work. I didn’t even know I had haters, and I was still playing bad before.
Homer: Okay, new approach: you have to eat tons of crazy sugary junk food!
Buck Mitchell: Eating junk food to improve your athletic performance? Seems backwards.
Homer: Trust me. Every super athlete is hopped up on Skittles, donuts, and you name it! They only call it “junk food” to mislead the public.
Buck Mitchell: I guess I do kind of like donuts…
Make Buck Mitchell Eat His Weight in Donuts- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Buck Mitchell: After all these donuts, I just feel super bloated and gross.
Homer: Once you get out there, you’ll be hitting home runs at every at-bat.
Buck Mitchell: I don’t know. These donuts aren’t sitting well. *throws up*
Bucks Given Pt. 3
Kent Brockman: That makes it eighteen straight losses for the Springfield Isotopes. I’m not one to point fingers, but if I was I would be pointing straight at Buck Mitchell. He’s washed up!
Buck Mitchell: He’s right. I am washed up.
Bart: You’re not washed up, Buck. Could I have your autograph?
Buck Mitchell: That’s nice, kid. At least I still have one fan.
Bart: Ew, no. I’m not your fan. You just signed a petition to officially ban you from baseball.
Homer: Don’t listen to him, Buck. You have tons of fans. Look over there, they’re cheering for you!
Buck Mitchell: Those are all fans of the opposing team!
Make Buck Mitchell Sign Autographs While Unamused- 12hrs, Earns $420, 100xp
Bucks Given Pt. 4
Buck Mitchell: You’re not supposed to be in here! This is the men’s locker room.
Marge: Oh, relax! Your terrible baseball slump is messing up my home life, so I need you to get it together, Buck.
Buck Mitchell: Marge, I’m retiring from baseball!
Marge: Okay, I didn’t want to do this, but Bart stole all the pitcher’s signs. And we have a video camera with a live feed.
Bart: If you hear one air horn then it’s a fastball. Two air horns: a changeup, and three: a slider…
Marge: Are you in?
Buck Mitchell: LET’S DO THIS!
Make Bully Boss Address the Crowd- 1hr, Earns $70, 10xp
Bucks Given Pt. 5
Kent Brockman: And it’s another home run! The Springfield Isotopes take the lead after three straight Buck Mitchell bombers!
Buck Mitchell: I can’t believe it! Knowing exactly what the pitcher is going to throw really gives you an advantage.
Kent Brockman: It all comes down to this. It’s full count in the bottom of the ninth with two outs. If Buck Mitchell hits a home run, the Isotopes will keep their World Series hopes alive.
Bart: *air horn*
Buck Mitchell: Okay, one air horn. That means he’s throwing a strike.
Bart: Oh, crap! The air horn’s out of air. It’s a curveball! A curveball!
Buck Mitchell: Huh?
Kent Brockman: And Buck Mitchell has swung and missed! The Isotopes’ season is over!
Buck Mitchell: I should’ve never tried to cheat. I guess now I’ll have to do a bunch of my superstitious rituals and repent to the baseball gods…
Make Buck Mitchell Conduct Superstitious Rituals- 4hrs, Earns $175, 45xp
Bart: I’m sorry, Buck. I tried my best at cheating, but the air horn ran out of air!
Buck Mitchell: It’s okay, kid. I’m still rich.
Bart: Your life’s just one long seventh inning stretch, isn’t it?
Buck Mitchell: *singing* “Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don’t care if I never get”–
Bart: Leave the singing to your pop star wife.
