Gameplay[edit]

All Dressed Up...[edit]

Pt. 1[edit]

Upon logging in:
Tapped Out Krusty Icon.png I'm getting roasted this weekend. You know you've made it when a cable TV channel underpays strangers to insult you.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png You must be thrilled. It's a huge honor.
Tapped Out Krusty Icon.png No, a huge honor was the fat judge I saw after my DUI.
Tapped Out Krusty Icon.png Is that a joke? I don't know anymore unless the audience "LAUGH" sign lights up.
Tapped Out Krusty Icon.png I gotta rent a tux. My old one ripped when I wore it for that "black tie kwon do" skit. It was funny until it got racist.
Task: Make Krusty Rent a Tux Online - 12h - requires Krusty Burger
Make Sideshow Mel Help Krusty Order Online - 12h - requires Krusty Burger (only if the player has unlocked Sideshow Mel)

Pt. 2[edit]

Upon tapping on Tuxedo Krusty's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png This tux ain't bad. I haven't worn one since my 4th wedding.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png I remember. Wonderful girl.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png If it was a wonderful girl, it wasn't my 4th wife. She tazed me on the honeymoon.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png I remember that too. You ended up in a Caribbean hospital.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png Which was where I met my 5th and 6th wives. That was a crazy week.

Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Pt. 3[edit]

After tapping on Tuxedo Krusty's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png I'm really turning heads in this tux. Now I see why Mr. Peanut dresses the way he does.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png It does suit you. Going for the "gentleman's girdle" was clearly the right decision.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png Yeah, except now my junk is stuffed tighter than a Tokyo subway car.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png It's time for me to cash in on looking half-decent...
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png ...just like all my ex-wives did by marrying and divorcing me.

Tapped Out Apu Icon.png Good afternoon. From your outfit, I can already tell you are in the wrong store.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png Yeah, as you can see, I'm pretty well off. So... what's free?
Upon task ending:
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png The Kwik-E-Mart corporation offers nothing for free. Even the employee bathroom is a pay toilet.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png You can't say no to rich guys. That's how America works!
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Pt. 4[edit]

After tapping on Tuxedo Krusty's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png Krusty, just because you're wearing a tuxedo doesn't give you a free pass to act like this.

Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png And for a show stopper, I have a tiny clown hiding in my pants.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png It's bad for him, but still better than his life in the country he escaped from.
Tapped Out Tuxedo Krusty Icon.png As long as there's developing countries, I'll have pants clowns. God bless you, global economy!

Pt. 1[edit]

After tapping on Sideshow Mel's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png With Krusty's constant pea-cocking, there's no room for advancement for us other performers!
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png I'm tired of being a "Z list" celebrity. I yearn for a vowel-list, and it needn't be an "A".
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png How hard can it be? All Krusty does is tell jokes then play laughter pre-recorded by prisoners.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png I know! I'll write jokes of my own. They'll be urbane and wry – that's what people look for in their comedy!

Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png The bird, not the city...

Upon quest completion:
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png The invitation never arrived.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png You call one network executive an idiot, and they take away your sitcom and blackball you for life.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png I'll show them. They may be able to keep me from taking the podium, but they can't keep me out of the building.
Tapped Out Sideshow Mel Icon.png By the time anyone realizes I've signed on as Krusty's "plus one", it will be too late!

Other changes made[edit]

Sourced from TSTOTopix - "What Changed with the Season Premiere episode tie-in Update?"
  • Base level building multipliers changed again, to remove the extra level which was added with the Level 45 update.
Level Old Multiplier New Multiplier
37 1.3 1
38 1.3 1.3
39 1.4 1.3
40 1.6 1.4
41 2.0 1.6
42 3.0 2.0
43 3.0 3.0
44 4.0 4.0
45 4.0 4.0

Level building multipliers: each building available for purchase with Cash.png has a base price, and when a new level is released, the multipliers adjust so that older buildings become cheaper, and the new level's buildings are at 4 times the base price.
