Questline with Dialog:

A Skippery Slope, part 1:

Luann: Are you the catch of the day or can I reel you in for a closer look?
Skipper Jack: Miss Luann Van Houten, are you trying to seduce me?
Luann: Skipper Jack! How could you even suggest such a thing? I’m hurt, I tell you, hurt!
Luann: *touches Skipper Jack’s bicep* Hurt!
Skipper Jack: I see right through you! And I’m totally game…
Luann: Oh, you are?
Skipper Jack: And let’s not forget, Kirk won’t be joining us on this adventure until the second quest. So, why don’t we take advantage of this opportunity and do what we really want?
Luann: And what might that be?

• Make Skipper Jack Take Luann Out – 4 hours
• Make Luann Accompany Skipper Jack in a Daze – 4 hours

Luann: Wait. Where are we?
Skipper Jack: We’re at my girlfriend’s office — she’s a couple’s counselor.
Luann: What? What’s going on? Is this some kind of open relationship thing you’re in?
Skipper Jack: No. I thought since you’re a married woman and you made some very clear and not subtle advances toward me that you and your husband, Kirk, could use some couple’s counseling.
Luann: I don’t need couple’s counseling. What I need is a drink.

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

A Skippery Slope, part 2:

Kirk: Hey look! It’s Skipper Hack! Have you seen my WIFE lately?
Skipper Jack: Uh. Are you trying to insinuate something?
Kirk: As a matter of fact, I am! Captain Marriage Ruiner!
Skipper Jack: Uh… look. I can’t talk right now. The day’s catch won’t sort itself. If you lend me a hand, we can get back to you accusing me of something I didn’t do afterwards.
Skipper Jack: I’d pay you for your troubles.
Kirk: Well, I’m only saying yes because I need the money. Afterwards we can discuss the fact that you’re having an affair with my wife!
Skipper Jack: That is patently untrue, Kirk.

• Make Skipper Jack Sort the Day’s Catch – 4 hours
• Make Kirk Help Sort the Day’s Catch – 4 hours

Skipper Jack: All right. The fish are sorted! Accuse away!
Kirk: What were you doing with my wife?!
Skipper Jack: I took her to my girlfriend’s office!
Kirk: Ew! So it was an open marriage thing?!
Skipper Jack: No! She’s a couple’s counselor! I took Luann there because clearly you two have marital problems.
Kirk: Duh! Captain Obvious!
Skipper Jack: It’s SKIPPER Obvious.

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

A Skippery Slope, part 3:

Fausto: *flips knife*
Skipper Jack: *flips telescope*
Fausto: So… should we set sail?
Skipper Jack: I guess so… pretty boring in Springfield…
Milhouse: I have a question for the skipper of this vessel.
Skipper Jack: That’d be me. What can I help you with?
Milhouse: I’m Milhouse Van Houten. I think you know my Mom and Dad.
Skipper Jack: Yes, I do.
Milhouse: Well, I just wanted to thank you for pointing my parents towards marriage counseling.
Milhouse: I think it’s really making a difference.
Skipper Jack: Well, that’s good to hear!
Milhouse: They’re finally admitting the truth: that they need to get a divorce.
Skipper Jack: So, two Christmases from now on? Lucky you!

• Make Milhouse Flip Fausto’s Knife – 4 hours
• Make Fausto Flip Milhouse – 4 hours

Milhouse: So…Mr. Skipper, sir… can I come with you guys on your sea adventure?
Skipper Jack: Hmmm, maybe. Do you know anything about sailing?
Milhouse: Test me.
Skipper Jack: What is the purpose of a ship’s keel?
Milhouse: To counterbalance the wind hitting the sails.
Skipper Jack: What is the term used to describe a ship’s sideways motion caused by wind or waves?
Milhouse: Yawing!
Skipper Jack: What is the term used to describe a boat’s method of catching fish using a large net that is retrieved at a later date?
Milhouse: Trawling!
Skipper Jack: What is the method of catching fish by attracting them with lights and netting them?
Milhouse: Oooh, jigging!
Fausto: This kid’s good.
Skipper Jack: Where’d you learn all these nautical terms?
Milhouse: I’ve seen “Master and Commander” a thousand times. I just love Russell Crowe.

Reward: 100 $$s, 10 XP

A Skippery Slope, part 4:

Fausto: Okay, Skipper. I have to know. What’s all this been about with the Van Houten family?
Skipper Jack: Don’t worry about it, Fausto. It’s just me being bored at sea.
Fausto: If you say so, Skipper.
Skipper Jack: You can get some rest, it’ll be a few hours before we’re back in port.
Fausto: Aye, aye. *heads below deck*
Skipper Jack: Finally, some peace and quiet.
Skipper Jack: Time to see what’s coming up next…

  1. I bought it as I wanted another “working mans” boat at the docks. Looks great.

  2. Bought it, sort the days catch beside his boat good buy

  3. It’s a cool boat. Bought it just for the uniqueness of the boat and the angle it faces.
