Cool Milhouse: Berry juice is the key.
CBG: All the comics Milhouse told me to order in bulk have become best sellers!
Quimby: A fine young man like this has a bright future ahead of him. Or he can become a Quimby campaign consultant.

Make Miss Springfield Clap and Cheer- 1hr

Kumiko: Milhouse, could you help me beat this final level of Assault on Brickcraft?

Happy Daze Pt. 4

Cool Milhouse: This is bogus! No one is inviting me anywhere now that the mayor has his goons keeping me away from everyone.

Cool Milhouse: I’m not too cool for school — it’s the only place I can get any fawning at all now!
Bart: So, you came crawling back to your ol’ pal, Bart. This is a golden opportunity for a classic Bart Simpson Stick-It-to-the-Man prank! This will be better than watching the Iron Yuppie take a turnbuckle to the groin on Superior Mega Ultra Slam 2.5: Upgrade of Pain.
Cool Milhouse: Oh no you don’t! I see you trying to sneak in and steal my cool thunder. I’ll figure this out myself.

Happy Daze Pt. 5
Cool Milhouse starts

Quimby: Thank you, Springfield, for joining me at today’s Annual Meeting of the Associated Homeowners Associations: “Proudly preventing above-ground pools and backyard storage sheds since 1979!” *reading teleprompter* I’d like to begin by noting that people who are super into HOA rules are nothing but giant wieners.
Helen Lovejoy: WHAT?!
Quimby: Ah, heh heh! What I, er, uh, meant was that HOA people love a good wiener roast. Who doesn’t? Now, ah, where was I? Let’s see… In addition to being giant wieners, you’re absolute suckers for letting me channel your money into my personal slush fund.
Cookie Kwan: Mister Mayor!
Quimby: I, uh, appear to be having a slight teleprompter malfunction. Maybe we could postpone—
Helen Lovejoy: No! We ordered cupcakes with little mayor sashes on them for this. If we don’t get the mayoral speech we were promised, you can kiss our endorsement goodbye!
Cool Milhouse: Need some help, Mr. Mayor?
Quimby: You?! I, uh, suppose I could allow you to help out just this once…
Cool Milhouse: Not good enough, sir.
Quimby: Alright! I hereby revoke the previously hastily declared ordinance forbidding your help! Now get me out of this, kid.
Make Cool Milhouse Fix the Mayor’s Teleprompter- 8hrs
Make Quimby Happily Finish Speech- 8hrs
Make Busybodies Enjoy Speech- x3. 8hrs.  Can send: Agnes, Bernice Hibbert, Cookie Kwan, Helen Lovejoy, Luann, Manjula, and Marge

  1. Cool Milhouse is a decent costume for Milhouse even though we did get one for him a few weeks ago (Lady Milhouse) and this event does also bring back most of Milhouse’s costumes. I really like Cool Milhouse’s visual tasks with the jukebox and him blowing smoke rings with his inhaler. I also like that his visual tasks are 4 and 12 hours long since 1 and 4 hour visuals are my least favourite visual task time lengths. It was great that Miss Springfield and Quimby had tasks in Cool Milhouse’s questline and that random kids also appeared in the dialogue of the questline. I’m disappointed that all of Cool Milhouse’s indoor tasks are at Springfield Elementary since it would’ve been better if he had at least one of his indoor tasks at another locations instead of all of them going to SE but at least they aren’t at the Brown House (except for it being the alternative location for the tasks). 😎💨🎶

    In my opinion, the best to worst act 2 prizes were: 1) Cool Milhouse. 2) The mystery box token (I got Golf N Die Retirement Village and Principal Dondelinger with it). 3) Milhouse Squishee Machine. 4) Gelato Stand. 5) Sjolbak Table.

  2. The dialog at the end of the questline (missing above) was kind of wonderful and touching. 💛

  3. Make Miss Springfield Clap and Cheer… Is an 8 hour task, not 1 hour.

  4. Cool Milhouse – hard to say it, but a Character Skin was the only decent Prize for Act 2 (Millhouse has enough Character Skins, it’s time to choose another Character, but I will say this is one of his better Character Skins …. because the Visual Character Tasks are great!) 😅

    Act 3 begins on August 30th …. and that’s rapidly approaching. 😀👍🏻

    • I like the outdoor tasks but as someone else has said, I’ve got like 5-6 Milhouse skins at this point (not helped by the fact that my act 2 token won me the Radioactive Man skin for Milhouse! 🙃)

      Honestly I prefer the decorations in this act to act 1, at least these decorations are relatively easy to find a home for. That bouncy house, laser gun and balloon arch stick out like sore thumbs atm. I need
      to build my Krustyland back up!!

      Role on Act 3, I want that Granny!

      • After almost eight years of Tapping, Decor doesn’t do it anymore unless it offers up a Permanent Character Task (and yeah it’s sad when the ONLY worthwhile Prize in Act 2 for me was one more Character Skin for Millhouse – hence the ‘need to offer up Skins for different Characters in Game App’ critique).

        I’ve got 3600 🍩’s an I’m ready for Act 3
