Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
In our games, the snow is falling and TSTO is calling yoo hoo! It’s the most wonderful time of the year Tappers, Christmas in TSTO!
Act 3 of this event ushered in one new premium character to help navigate this holiday whodunnit. The Gnome-in-the-Home is an all-new premium character for Springfield, who will not only help earn event currency but also comes with a short questline.
So let’s take a look at the full dialogue questline for the Gnome-in-the-Home…
Attack of the Gnomes Pt. 1
Bart: I can’t believe we thought this ride was for stupid babies! It’s the best!
Milhouse: Should we go on it again?!
Bart: DUH! Gnome ride! Gnome ride! Gnome ride! Man, somehow this ride gets crazier every time.
Gnome In The Home: Help me, kind fellows…
Bart and Milhouse: Freaky talking Gnome!
Gnome In The Home: Help…me…please.
Milhouse: Let’s get outta here! *leaves*
Bart: Hmm, I’m not really the type that helps people in any way shape or form, but I don’t know, this intrigues me…
Gnome In The Home: I bow to you forever in service for helping me.
Bart: Fine. As long as you’re not overly clingy.
GnomeInTheHome : *holding onto Bart’s leg* Clingy?! Never! Never!
Bart: You’re clingier than Milhouse!
Milhouse: I heard that!
Bart: I thought you left!
Milhouse: Maybe I am clingy?
Gnome In The Home: Just come with me, please.
Make Gnome-in-the-Home Try to Remove His Costume- 4hrs
Make Bart Watch Warily- 4hrs
Gnome In The Home: See? When I try to take off my Christmas costume, this happens. *electrocution noises*
Bart: Whoa, what was that? Did you get hit with a bolt of lightning or something?
Gnome In The Home: At this point I don’t know how long I’ve been stuck in this thing. I can’t even remember who I was before Gnome in the Home #357.
Bart: Well, you are a seasonal mascot at Santa’s Village, so…you may have been somewhat forgettable to begin with.
Milhouse: Hey! My dad’s a longstanding member of the Mascots, Sideshows, and Skateboarding-Bulldogs Union!
Gnome In The Home: He is?! I wish we Gnomes were. Instead we’re covered by the International Union of Gardeners and Landscapers. We don’t even get lunch breaks. So, please, just help me.
Attack of the Gnomes Pt. 2
Gnome In The Home: What are we doing way out here?
Bart: Going to see the witch.
Gnome In The Home: The witch? I didn’t agree to that!
Bart: You run the creepiest ride in town and you’re stuck in your costume by some sort of magic spell, but you’re scared of a witch?
Witch: As well he should be! How dare you approach me!
Gnome In The Home: Aaah!
Bart: Drop the act. You still owe me from last week’s poker game.
Witch: It’s no act. I’m terrifying and you should quake in my presence.
Bart: Shaking in my boots. Are you going to pay up or not?
Witch: I’m no welcher. What do you need?
Bart: This guy is trapped in his costume. It sounds like your handiwork. Can you get him out?
Witch: Hmm. Interesting… Not my magic, but it’s very good. I’ll give it a try. This may hurt a bit.
Gnome In The Home: I’ve had to pee for what feels like months. It can’t be worse than that.
Witch: Challenge accepted.
Make the Witch Try to Lift the Curse- 4hrs
Make Gnome-in-the-Home Writhe in Agony- 4hrs
Make Bart Watch in Fascination- 4hrs
Gnome In The Home: Well, I was wrong. The pain was worse. On the upside, I don’t have to pee anymore.
Bart: Can you take off the costume?
Gnome In The Home: *pulls on the costume, gets zapped* Ow!
Witch: Mmm…the curse is too powerful even for me. You’ll need to find the one who cursed you.
Bart: You still owe me.
Witch: I didn’t eat you for coming here. I think we’re even.
Bart: See you Thursday?
Witch: Don’t forget that it’s your turn to bring snacks.
Attack of the Gnomes Pt. 3
Gnome In The Home: Well, that wasn’t helpful. I have no idea who cursed me.
Bart: What’s the last thing you remember?
Gnome In The Home: I remember getting hired and then going deep into the bowels of the Gnome-in-the-Home Dome ride.
Bart: Then that’s where we’ll start. If cartoons have taught me anything, we’ll find some creepy caretaker that’s behind the whole thing.
Gnome In The Home: If you say so. It sounds a little cliché to me.
Bart: Clichés are clichés for a reason.
Make Gnome-in-the-Home Embrace the Cliché – 4hrs
Make Bart Embrace the Cliché – 4hrs
Herman: What are you doing back here? You’re supposed to be out front running the ride.
Bart: I told you there would be some creepy old dude behind it all. Why did you curse him?
Herman: I’m not old, the war aged me prematurely. And what curse?
Gnome In The Home: I can’t take off this costume and I can’t remember who I am. Do you know who I am?
Herman: No idea. If we did background checks at carnival rides, we’d never hire anyone.
Bart: Where did the costume come from?
Herman: Bought it off Moeslist. Only cost me three beers. Heck of an investment, too. That thing practically doubled ticket sales.
Gnome In The Home: What kind of website sells things for beer?
Herman: The best kind.
Attack of the Gnomes Pt. 4
Bart: Hey Moe, I heard you were running a website called Moeslist.
Moe: Are you two cops? If you are, you’re required by law to tell me.
Bart: We’re a kid and a guy in a gnome costume…
Moe: You can never be too careful. Gnome, take off the head. I need to see if you have the face of a cop.
Gnome In The Home: *pulls on head and gets zapped*
Bart: See, that’s exactly the problem. He can’t take off the costume.
Moe: No refunds.
Bart: So, you admit you sold this costume.
Moe: No. But still, no refunds.
Gnome In The Home: We’re not trying to bust you. I just want to get out of the costume. What can you tell us about it?
Moe: The source of items listed on Moeslist is confidential.
Bart: *points to the gnome* He’s a cop.
Moe: Oh, please don’t arrest me. I didn’t do it. The costume was left with some stupid stick. I sold it to a kid who thought it was a magical wand.
Bart: Pudgy little nerd going on and on about Angelica Button?
Moe: That’s the one.
Make Bart Hunt Down Martin- 4hrs
Make Gnome-in-the-Home Get His Hopes Up – 4hrs
Make Moe Change His Website to Joeslist- 4hrs
Attack of the Gnomes Pt. 5
Bart: Martin! Just who I was looking for. *cracks knuckles*
Martin: Back off Lord Evilton, or I, Angelica Button, will blast you to oblivion with my magic wand!
Bart: Whatever, hand over the wand and nobody gets hurt.
Martin: *holds up wand* You want a piece of this?
Gnome In The Home: *steps in between them* I just need your hel—
Martin: Aaaah! Allakablam! *zaps Gnome-in-the-Home*
Gnome In The Home: *on the ground* Wuuuuuuh?
Martin: I did magic! I did real magic!
Bart: You all right?
Martin: Of course. I’m better than all right!
Bart: Not you, Merlin.
Gnome In The Home: *stands up* I think so. Something feels different. I think my name is…Jerry.
Martin: Don’t make me blast you again!
Bart: Martin, chill. We came here to see if that wand would help him get out of that gnome costume.
Martin: Oh, in that case… Allakabl—
Bart: Stop! Let’s at least see what that first zap did…Jerry, see if you can take off the head.
Make Gnome-in-the-Home Take Off His Head – 4hrs
Make Martin Wait Impatiently to Do More Magic – 4hrs
Make Bart Cross His Fingers – 4hrs
Gnome In The Home: Hey, I can take the head off! But…ah, there’s just more heads underneath.
Bart: Well hey, that’s…progress.
Martin: Yes! I’ll keep trying until we get it right.
Bart: Do you think maybe I could have one of the extra heads? Lisa would just LOVE to wake up with that thing in the bed next to her.
And that’s it my friends, the Gnome’s premium dialogue.
