Professor Frink appears
Professor Frink Glaven! I come from an alternate Springfield in a parallel universe.
Homer Well, you should hurry back there and let the good people of Alternate Springfield know that Alternate Homer is fixing to blow them up good.
Professor Frink Too late, you multi-dimensional train-wreck.
Professor Frink On the upside, these explosions have kablooey-ed the very fabric of space-time making travel between Springfields possible.
Lisa - Sad But... that doesn't make any sense.
Professor Frink Don't think about it too closely. Just accept it and keep playing.
Professor Frink disappears
The player receives "The Others" which is to "Visit Another Springfield."
Visit Another Springfield
Professor Frink Welcome to Springfield Prime. As you can see, our city is vastly more advanced than your own.
Homer Wow. I'd spend any amount of money -- real, actual money -- to have a town like this!
Message Every day, you can interact with three different buildings in each other Springfield you visit!
Professor Frink Mhoyvin! I see you've found my newest invention -- the "Frink Point"!
Professor Frink You'll get one every time you interact with something in other Springfields. With the tapping and the reading and the waiting too long for loading.
Homer What's in it for me?
Professor Frink I'm glad you asked, my good man! Science has learned that interacting with other humans improves your quality of life, it may, in fact, extend your life.
Homer That's nice, but I'd really rather get some kind of imaginary prize or doodad for doing stuff.
Professor Frink *sigh* Doodads, always with the doodads.
Professor Frink Actually, they're called FRINK points. F-R-I-N-K. Sometimes people mis-hear me 'cause of my Hoy-vin accent.
Homer Actually, "Friend Points" has a nice ring to it, let's call it that.
Professor Frink But I'm the inventor, and you're just some guy. So I think we both know who gets to name the points.
Message Collect Friend Points today!
Player is back to their Springfield
Lisa We should visit other Springfields every day! It could help us rebuild our own Springfield. AND it's great exercise!

The following dialogue was cut and was supposed to be Pt. 2 of the quest:

The Others Pt. 2[edit]

Lisa We should find another Springfield to visit.
Homer And the more friends we have, the more money we get from the Daily Bonus!
Task: Build a Kwik-E-Mart and Add a Friend
Lisa I got a friend! "Dear Diary, today was amazing..."
