Questline with Dialog:

Little Winnin’ Part 1:

Manager Nigel: So I’m too Hollywood for Hollywood, eh? Well, I’m about to be on the fast track to their good graces: becoming huge in theater!
Manager Nigel: Because the only thing Hollywood is more pretentious about than itself is the live stage.
Llewellyn Sinclair: Hey, Hamlet! Could you keep your sad soliloquy down? We’re trying to rehearse a play.
Manager Nigel: Yes, that’s why I’m here. I’m your new producer.
Llewellyn Sinclair: Our what?! But I’m our producer!
Manager Nigel: No, you’re the director. You can still be in charge. I’m just more in charge now. That’s how the collaborative process works.

Task: Make Nigel Become a Theater Producer4 hours
Task: Make Llewellyn Sinclair Object to Nigel’s Involvement4 hours

Llewellyn Sinclair: Look, I appreciate the enthusiasm, but you can’t just barge in and declare yourself to be our producer.
Manager Nigel: Oh yeah, the details, the details…
Manager Nigel: See, I called my friend who was the casting director for an off-off Broadway production…
Manager Nigel: …of a play written by the daughter of the guy whose wife runs the nonprofit that took out the mortgage for your community theater here. Well, she says I’m in charge now.
Llewellyn Sinclair: Fine, but I want to keep my office — it has a private bathroom.

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

Little Winnin’ Part 2:

Manager Nigel: Okay, so what play are we doing?
Lisa: We’re putting on a production of “Little Women”.
Manager Nigel: “Little Women”, eh? How little are we talking? Like freakishly little?
Lisa: It’s an adaptation of the classic novel about Nineteenth Century women crossing the painful hurdle from the relative freedom and joy of childhood to the challenges of womanhood in a repressive, patriarchal society.
Manager Nigel: Hurdles, eh? So the women were track athletes. And in a sense this is a sports underdog story!
Lisa: What the heck are you talking about?
Manager Nigel: Okay, you’re all staying here and rewriting the play based on my notes. Now, go off and execute my vision!
Lisa: Do we really have to put up with this?
Llewellyn Sinclair: I’m afraid so. You know the old saying…
Llewellyn Sinclair: The show must go on…? That works, right?
Lisa: Kind of.

Task: Make Nigel Demonstrate His Vision4 hours

Llewellyn Sinclair: Okay, Nigel, we rewrote “Little Women” based on your “vision”.
Llewellyn Sinclair: Meg is a pole vaulter with high hopes to win a gold medal for her country. Jo is mid-distance runner who for some reason refuses to stop at the finish line. She always keeps running.
Manager Nigel: Good, good.
Llewellyn Sinclair: And Amy is a hurdler who, uh, hurdles.
Manager Nigel: That’s fantastic. You know my notes have always just been suggestions for you to consider.
Llewellyn Sinclair: They were? I didn’t have to do them?
Manager Nigel: As in, you should really consider using some of them so that I feel smart and don’t make every day of rehearsals miserable with even more notes!

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

Little Winnin’ Part 3:

Manager Nigel: Okay, I’ve got the extra props and costumes for the track meet lined up, and the fog machines and lasers are ready to go for the big finale.
Llewellyn Sinclair: How are you able to afford all of this super expensive stuff?
Manager Nigel: Oh, I’m just charging it all back to the community theater. Look at me all producering!
Llewellyn Sinclair: Uh, look, if we don’t fill all these seats every night, the theater is definitely going to go bankrupt.
Manager Nigel: Oh, wow. That will definitely suck for you guys when that happens.
Manager Nigel: I’m kidding of course! My money’s tied to this as well. I’ll make sure we sell out the show for its entire run!

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

Little Winnin’ Part 4:

Mabel Simpson: Oh, my girls, however long you may live, whatever hurdles in life you may jump, I never can wish you a greater happiness than this. *thundering applause*
CBG: Best. Local theater. EVER!
Llewellyn Sinclair: Thank you so much, good people of Springfield. How about another round of applause for the people who made the magic come alive on the stage, our wonderful—

Manager Nigel: It’s all right. You can say that you couldn’t have done it without me.
Lisa: Well, we certainly wouldn’t have done THIS without you.

Task: Make Nigel Take Credit for Everything4 hours

Llewellyn Sinclair: So I guess you’re headed back to Hollywood now.
Manager Nigel: I wish!

Llewellyn Sinclair: So where are you headed?
Manager Nigel: I signed a new barbershop quartet and I’m taking them on tour.
Wiggum: The Be Sheriff’s! Eddie, Lou, and ME.
Lou: But we need four people to be a quartet.
