Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
As we prepare for the Springfield Enlightened event to end TOMORROW, it’s time to wrap up Act 4, and the event, with a pretty little bow…in the form of the hilarious dialogue!
So here’s a look at the full dialogue for Buddhism Sans…just in case you missed it by tapping too fast…
Buddhism Sans Pt. 1
Siddmartha: Mom, he’s destroying my philosophy. He’s luring away my followers with raucous parties and fatty treats.
Queen Gautama: You may want to reconsider your approach if that’s all it takes to lure away followers.
Prince Gautama: Oh, snap. Walked right into that one.
Queen Gautama: What do you want me to do, Siddmartha? I love my children equally.
Siddmartha: You could send him to the tower and still love him equally.
Queen Gautama: True. Guards, escort the prince to the tower so he can think about what he’s done.
Prince Gautama: Wait, what? I can think about what I’ve done just fine from down here!
Siddmartha: Snap back at ya!
Make Prince Gautama Think About What He’s Done- 4hrs

Prince Gautama: Aw, there’s nothing to do in the tower but spit on the peasants.
Skinner: Mother, is it really necessary for you to fix my hair?
Agnes: I’ve been flattening your cowlick since you were two years old, Seymour! Now hold still or it won’t stay down!
Skinner: *splat* Gah! Did someone just spit on my head?!
Prince Gautama: Bullseye!
Agnes: Ah, perfect. Thank you!
Buddhism Sans Pt. 2
Siddmartha: I want everyone gathered here to know that Prince Gautama has renounced his actions in creating Buddhism with Donuts. So, feel free to return to the regular Buddhism.
Homer: Sans donuts?
Siddmartha: We’ll find other things to replace donuts. Have you tried granola?
Barney: What about beer?
Siddmartha: Unfortunately, no. In addition to no donuts, there’s no beer.
Wiggum: And what about donut beer?
Siddmartha: Is that a thing?
Moe: I could probably make that a thing.
Siddmartha: Let’s just stick to kombucha. It’s healthy and trendy. And kinda close to donut beer.
Moe: Donut beer, eh?

Moe: Here you go, Barney. Freshly brewed kombucha, just for you.
Barney: Ah, thanks! *belch*
Moe: *whispering* Psst, it’s donut beer. Don’t tell the Buddha girl.
Siddmartha: If anyone wants to talk about me WITHOUT me hearing it, I’ll be at the Bodhi tree.
Buddhism Sans Pt. 3
The Dalai Lama: I sense a disturbance in this place. Something to do with…donuts?
Lisa: *gasp* I thought my Dalai Lama tracker app was malfunctioning, but you’re actually here!
The Dalai Lama: Ah, you must be Siddmartha.
Lisa: No, actually, this is Siddmartha.
The Dalai Lama: *looks back and forth between them* Really? Uh, okay. Siddmartha, my Lama sense was tingling. It told me you were about to do something regrettable.
Siddmartha: Like handing out knuckle sandwiches?
The Dalai Lama: Yes, like that. You know that Buddhism does not condone violence.
Siddmartha: Well, what about stuffing your face with sugary, deep-fried, fatty donuts? That’s all these people seem to do.
The Dalai Lama: Actually, there’s no prohibition on sweet treats such as donuts. It’s all about balance.
Homer: Woo hoo! Mr. Lama is the best!

The Dalai Lama: Correct. As with all things, donuts should be enjoyed in moderation.
Homer: Hello, Dalai. Does moderation mean “at every meal”?
The Dalai Lama: No.
Buddhism Sans Pt. 4
The Dalai Lama: Thank you for showing me around this lovely little town.
Siddmartha: My pleasure. I thought we could round out the tour with a donut at Lard Lad.
The Dalai Lama: Excellent idea! I’m famished and I can get a bit grouchy when I’m hungry.
Siddmartha: That’s called being hangry.
The Dalai Lama: Oh, that’s clever. I’ll have to remember to include that in my teachings.
Make The Dalai Lama Have a Donut- 4hrs

The Dalai Lama: Wait, people are buying these things by the DOZEN?
Siddmartha:Often multiple dozens. Sometimes by the display case.
The Dalai Lama: They have families that large?
Siddmartha: Eh, no.
The Dalai Lama: But that’s an obscene number of donuts!
Siddmartha: Perhaps now you see why I tried to put a stop to it.
The Dalai Lama: And they put donuts in their beer?!
Siddmartha: Remember, balance in all things. Especially our emotions.
The Dalai Lama: *takes a big breath* Yes, right now I am balancing an equal amount of anger and sadness.
Buddhism Sans Pt. 5
Siddmartha: I think we could both use a little Zen time, so I’ve booked us a class making salt mandalas.
The Dalai Lama: Delightful. I need something to concentrate on so I can bring back my inner calm.
Siddmartha: It’s good to know that even you can lose your calm every now and then.
The Dalai Lama: I’m enlightened. I’m not a saint.
Siddmartha: Buddhism doesn’t have saints!
The Dalai Lama: …
Siddmartha: Sorry, I’ll feel better after the class.

Siddmartha: Hey, Lenny. Hey, Carl. I guess nobody else showed up for the class, huh? Is it back to just you two attending all the Buddhist events?
Lenny: It’s not all bad. We get dibs on the best meditation mats!
Carl: Are you — the Dalai Lama?
The Dalai Lama: Yes. Are you Carl?
Carl: Yes. *faints*
The Dalai Lama: It looks like everything is back in balance.
Buddha School Dropouts
Siddmartha: It seems the town has returned to its former ambivalence toward Buddhism.
Lisa: Yes, they’ve officially dropped the Buddhism from the “Buddhism with Donuts” philosophy.
Siddmartha: But that just leaves “Donuts”.
Homer: And that’s just the way we like it.
And that’s it my friends! The full dialogue for Act 4 of Springfield Enlightened, and the END of the Event!
