Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Act 3 is nearly a week old, have you finished it yet? With Act 4 approaching next week (Tuesday), it’s time to finalize the posts for Act 3. And y’all know finalizing the posts means….time for full dialogue! Which oftentimes is the best part of the event.
Act 3 of this multi-event ushered in one new premium character to assist with the event. Cosine Tangent is an all-new premium character for Springfield, who not only helps earn event currency (throughout the entire event) but also comes with a short questline.
So let’s take a look at the full dialogue for Do the Math…
Do the Math Pt. 1
Database: Ah, man. I can’t believe we lost that math competition.
Lisa: It’s okay, guys. We’ll get ‘em next time.
Cosine Tangent: Yes, but from a pragmatic perspective we should identify the weakest link and excise it.
Report Card: *gasp*
Cosine Tangent: And Database…you missed the final question that cost us the game. How could you have confused Fermat’s Last Theorem with his FIRST theorem?
Database: Seventeenth century French mathematics is my weakness! You know that.
Cosine Tangent: You’re off your game, and it’s gonna cost us that regional trophy that is built out of golden Mersenne prime numbers.
Database: Again with the seventeenth century French mathematics!

Lisa: Right, and that always goes so well…
Do the Math Pt. 2
Report Card: It looks like the vote is tied. What do we do now?
Lisa: Well, in keeping with procedure, the Vice President would cast the deciding vote.
Cosine Tangent: As Vice President, I hereby vote to remove Database from the group!
Database: But…you already voted! You can’t vote twice.
Cosine Tangent: Given that he’s a non-member, I motion to have Database’s comments stricken from the record.
Lisa: Ahh…I agree with Database, but decorum must be followed. The motion passes.
Report Card: The motion passes! Let it be added to the record.
Database: *gasp* You’ll regret this, Cosine.

Cosine Tangent: Cosmos, I believe the time is right for you to rejoin our ranks.
Bart: *graffitiing the swing set* Don’t call me Cosmos.
Lisa: Bart, we really need you. Sure, math may not be your strong suit, but what you lack in actual mathematical skill you make up for in…
Bart: In what?
Lisa: Gimme a minute, I didn’t practice this.
Bart: C’mon, guys. I’m not the best mathlete around here.
Cosine Tangent: You’re not? Then who is?

Do the Math Pt. 4
Nelson: I wouldn’t join your lame group in a million years.
Cosine Tangent: Mr. Muntz, I believe you are overlooking one very important thing.
Nelson: Oh yeah? And what’s that? *pulls back fist for a punch*
Cosine Tangent: Girls dig nerds.
Nelson: *slowly relaxes fist* They do?
Lisa: Uh…yeeaaahhh. Totally. All my friends are like “I can’t wait to find a hunk who can…solve the Poincaré Conjecture.”
Cosine Tangent: But Lisa, it was already solved in 2003.
Lisa: *whispering* Just go with it.
Nelson: That must be what I’ve been missing all this time. Alright nerds, I’m in.

Nelson: What the crap. You nerds lied to me! Chicks don’t dig nerds, they dig geeks!
Cosine Tangent: Huh? What’s the difference?
Nelson: Well apparently only geeks know the difference.
Lisa: I wish you all would stop stereotyping so much, it really depends on the – oh no, he’s winding up his fist for a patented Nelson Wham Bam Thank You Slam!

Lisa: You’re still gonna get picked on.
Cosine Tangent: What? No!
Database: Hey, guys. I heard your search for a new member didn’t go so hot. Well…guess whose got two thumbs and is still the best mathlete around?
Lisa: Please don’t.
Database: *sticking thumbs into his chest* This guy!
Lisa: You did.
