Christmas 2020 Act 1 Full Dialogue: Space Cadet

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Act 2 is slated to start TOMORROW, December 17thAct 1 isn’t going anywhere, so if you didn’t finish it you’ll still have time to. Look for Act 2 to start around 9am ET.  (1400 UTC)
You’ll need Ned and Marge free for the first round of tasks (and those earning event currency).  Also, 1 new premium character combo will be released.  150 donuts for the combo.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!  And this year EA is insulting everyone with a true Sacrilegious Christmas…nothing says 2020 quite like this! Also always, loads of dialogue with this one, so be sure to read along to see what happens! And of course, I’ll be posting it as each week wraps up…

Now on with the Act 1 Dialogue…

The Ol’ Frazzle Dazzle Pt. 1

Homer: Click…and drag. Click…and drag. Click…and drag. Three items in the cart. Marge. Lisa. Bart. Woohoo! I’m done with all my Christmas clicking!
Maggie: *sucking sounds*
Homer: You know about Christmas?
Maggie: *sucking sounds*
Homer: Okay, what do you want?
Maggie: *sucking sounds*
Homer: One pacifier coming up! Clicked…and dragged! Free three-day delivery? Tell that to someone who started shopping before the 23rd! Verify shipping address? Who’s working for who? Nog break!

Marge: Homer, you just drank a gallon of eggnog!
Homer: We need to finish it off. It’s Christmas Eve Eve — and we all know the government takes it away on the 26th. Why can’t we keep it until New Years?! It’s seasonal! Seasonal!

The Ol’ Frazzle Dazzle Pt. 2

Marge: I’ll pick up some more eggnog on the way back from the mall.
Homer: Remember to get more nutmeg, too! And more nog! And more nutmeg! And more nog!
Marge: Stop that!
Homer: It’s hard to get the balance right!
Marge: My sisters are coming over for Christmas so we need to finish putting up the decorations.
Homer: Your sisters? But Christmas is the season of love!
Marge: I’m taking the kids to see Santa. You can Christmas-ify the house until we get back.

Movement Ad Truck: Feeling Frazzled? Join the Movementarians for a Frazzle-Free Holiday Feast!
Homer: I am feeling frazzled! I do love feasting! This ad truck knows me better than I know myself! Can you really deliver a frazzle-free holiday?
Recruiter: Yes! We at the Movementarians create a frazzle-free zone by removing frazzles, which are inter-dimensional grumpiness gremlins. We use our spaceship to dump them in a distant nebula.
Homer: You had me at spaceship! How much does this frazzle-free holiday cost?
Recruiter: The initial frazzle test is free. After that, it’s all-you-can-earn.
Homer: Did you say all-you-can-eat?
Recruiter: Sure, that too.

Recruiter: Your great benevolence, this is the new recruit I told you of.
The Leader: Ah, yes. Homer Simpson. I’ve just been looking over your test results.
Homer: Oh, no. Is it positive? Or negative? Which one is bad and which one am I?
The Leader: Well, according to the F-reader, you’re fully frazzled! You’re going to have to work really hard and buy many Movementarian books and video tapes if you want to get frazzle-free.
Homer: Don’t we have suckers to do that stuff for us?
The Leader: Until you find us new suckers, you’re the sucker.
Homer: How do we find new suckers?
The Leader: The same way we found you — with the ad truck. Here are the keys.
Homer: Can I play ice cream truck music while I drive around?
Recruiter: Hmm. That would bring out many children, sir. Children are young and impressionable.
The Leader: So that’s a yes.
Homer: Woohoo!

Patty: We want to be frazzle-free!
Homer: *gasp* I don’t know what you’re talking about. This is an ice cream truck!
Selma: Then I’ll have a Fudgsicle.
Homer: We’re out of ice cream.
Recruiter: Did you two wish to take the Movementarian personality test and join our family?
Homer: Their results came back. They have no personalities.
Selma: Too bad, fatty. We’re joining your cult anyway, out of spite.

Krusty Claus: Okay, kid, have you been naughty or nice this year?
Bart: I’m non-binary, naughtiness-versus-niceness-wise. Others see me as naughty, but I self-identify as nice.
Krusty Claus: Uh, okay. What do you want?
Bart: A white Christmas.
Krusty Claus: Does smog from wildfires count?
Bart: I mean the new CrimeTown video game: “White Christmas: The Cali Cartel Comes Home for the Holidays”. It’s about a Christmas Eve turf battle between rival cocaine gangs.
Krusty Claus: The elves have been hitting the nog early, so I’m not sure I can help you out.
Bart: I see. It would be a shame if anything happened to that sweet ride of yours.
Krusty Claus: My sleigh? Do your worst, kid. I drive a Lexus.
Bart: I know. License plate: MR LAFF. Parked beside the dumpster.
Krusty Claus: Let me reach out to the elves.

Recruiter: Homer, your next task is to spread germs at salad bars around town.
Homer: No way! It violates my morals to have anything to do with salad! And you don’t make brainwashed followers with salad.
Recruiter: Then you can always clean more bathrooms.
Homer: Isn’t there a faster way to ascend to the spaceship?
Recruiter: Well, sure. You could always star in an action movie, become an international icon, and use your platform to promote the views of the Movementarians.
Homer: As long as it doesn’t involve salad.

Homer: What about the streaming revenues?
Recruiter: Those are a complete black box.
Selma: Speaking of Homer being an international disappointment, Patty and I are Level Three now and we’ll be your supervisors.
Homer: *gasp*
Patty: Fan me with some pamphlets, Level Two-ling!
Selma: Massage my feet with the F-reader!
Homer: There has to be another way to the spaceship!

Marge: Homie, we’re home! Homie?
Lisa: Mom, there’s a note here from Dad.
Marge: *reading* “My dearest Marge. By the time you read this, I’ll be in space. But don’t worry, they probably have time machines in space so I’ll come back before you even read this. Turn around, I’m right behind you.”
Lisa: He’s not there, just keep reading.
Marge: *reading* “Oh, am I not behind you? In that case, I met a beautiful alien girl and we’ve started a family. But you’ll always be my first love. Sincerely, Homie. PS: Maggie is in the hammock.”
Marge: *reading* “PPS: The Movementarians are coming over for Christmas — to recruit you and the kids. Don’t join, it’s a bunch of baloney.”
Ned: *poking head through the window* Did I hear you say Movementarians? Why, those zealots make my blood boil.
Marge: Ned, will you help me go save Homer from a cult again?
Ned: Sure thing, neighborino!

The Leader: Homer, I’ve heard good things of your recruiting efforts with the ad truck. It seems you’re to thank for us finally nailing that 4-11 demographic. Soon we’ll move onto the all-important 18-49.
Recruiter: It’s time, Homer, for your next ascension ceremony.
Homer: And then I get to fly the spaceship?
The Leader: Uh, no. But you get this cool badge on your robe.
Homer: Ooh, can I tap it to talk to other people on the spaceship like an intercom?
The Leader: No, but that’s not a bad idea. Can we make that happen?
Recruiter: I’ll get right on it, sir.

Marge: Well now…I never mentioned his last name.
Ned: Oldest trick in the book, and you walked right into it.

  1. Will someone call EABOB and wake him up an see if he is coming to work today .

    See ya bye . 👽

  2. Anyone seeing Act 2 yet? It’s well past 9ET, & now past 10ET. Hmmmm…

  3. Is it going live today? It’s 10:15 est…

  4. Help us Baby Jesus .
    👼

    See ya bye . 👽

  5. Charles Deitrick

    So far nothing yet for Act 2 and it is already going on 10am Eastern time

  6. Baby Jesus has arrived but no act 2 yet… 🙄

    • I have to pull the files since the patch, I haven’t done that yet. But I think they updated the time files for Act 2 start and didn’t update the time file for the premium character.

  7. ms Kodos Claus is no longer available in the Token XMAS mystery box. or is that just me…

  8. Well the turkey arrived for purchase with a ticket….it was the last prize I needed…it was there one day, gone the next…I started exchanging my tickets for 3 donuts…then the next day the turkey returned..I was able to purchase it for a ticket…completing the winter wonderland. Not sure why this happened…but I’m thankful it did…unfortunately I have nothing to use tickets on anymore…anyone know if I should hold on to tickets earned from daily tasks for the future, or is exchanging them for the 3 donuts really only the to do with them?

  9. In act 2 calender it says spaceship OR token is this correct because I got both in act 1

    • The final prize of each act includes a mystery box token. In Act 2, there’s the potential for a 2nd token from the prize track if you have the Cult Flying Saucer. If you have the saucer, you’ll get just the MB token from that prize in addition to a 2nd token with the 5th prize from that act. If you don’t have the saucer, you’ll be awarded the saucer and only receive the MB token with the 5th prize from the act.

      Hopefully, that makes sense.

  10. I am particularly enjoying the adaptation of the daily task to provide a second source of prizes.
    The burning bush glitch was a nice touch too.

    So I’m guessing that as act 2 is starting tommorow, that act1 must have started last Tuesday? I had assumed it would have started on a Wednesday.

  11. I like the fact that Alissa is always honest concerning TSTO. It’s true that this christmas event is quite meh… I had hope that EA would care a bit more about the last event of a very scary year 2020…. but nope.

  12. Krusty Claus
    Bart is non-binary
    Cocaine reference
    (OMG the writers!) 😅

    Yes, bring on Act 2 👍🏻
    ❄️⛄🎄

  13. tomorrow is the 17th…
