After the user logs in on January 13th:
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png My son little Jamshed is coming back to Springfield. He's been, as they say, stuck in limbo!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I'm not too good at limbo. Those sticks are racist against fat guys.
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png Not that limbo! I am talking about the state of transitional oblivion!
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png In other words, college.
If Sanjay is owned: Task: Make Sanjay Prepare a Room for Jamshed (4h, Brown House)
If Sanjay is not owned: Task: Make Apu Prepare a Room for Jamshed (4h, Brown House)
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Word on the street's that your son is taking over your spot at the Kwik-E-Mart.
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png It's true. I have de-cockroached my last Squishee machine. I want to do something different with my life.
Tapped Out Cool Homer Icon.png
Ah, the old midlife crisis. Too bad you're not young, rad, hip, ballin' and buzzfeedin' like me, Daddy-o.
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png Mr. Simpson, you're a walking monument of a midlife crisis.
Tapped Out Cool Homer Icon.png
Shows what you know. Dr. Hibbert said according to my cholesterol count my midlife happened when I was 20.
Jay Unlock.png
System Message Check the store for limited time clothing and other monuments... the non-metaphorical type!

Big Jamshed Pt. 2[edit]

After tapping on Jay's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
I'm ready to take my jam to the Kwik-E-Mart! And all it took was a $200,000 business degree.
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
Now it's time for some hot yoga!
Tapped Out Sanjay Icon.png Ah, my son – with maturity you have abandoned your anti-traditional views!

Nah, Pops, I'm still not down with that Indian shizz. Yoga's just what's chill right now.
Task: Make Jay Do Yoga (8h)
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png You look a little... older than I remember.
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
Yeah, doing a full course load at Wharton while mopping floors in a bank all night will do that to a kid.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Hmmm... nobody around here ever seems to age.
Tapped Out Comic Book Guy Icon.png I credit clean living. And yes, I said that without a trace of self-reflective irony.
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Big Jamshed Pt. 3[edit]

After tapping on Jay's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
Why don't I find it surprising that all the food is packed with unhealthy preservatives?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png What's your beef with preserved fake-beef? The scientists at the National Preservatives Council say it's good for you.
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
You should listen to my science Homer. Look at me, I'm in awesome shape!
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
Stop by, and I'll show you how to make your favorite foods with kale and cauliflower.

Come by the Kwik-E-Mart. We have healthy vegetarian culture foods, and our new inclusive signature: the LGBTQIA sandwich!
Tapped Out Smithers Icon.png Sounds like my kind of lunch food!
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
It's lentils, goat cheese, bacon, tomato, quinoa, iceberg lettuce and asiago.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Wait a minute there! There's bacon in there! How can you say that's vegetarian?
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
I said vegetarian CULTURE. Pure vegetarianism is so “the aughts.” Why would you want to live without bacon?
Tapped Out Wiggum Icon.png He's got you there, Lisa. I eat so much of the stuff that people are always telling me they smell bacon when I'm around.
Task: Make Jay Work a Kwik-E-Mart 1hr Shift (1h, Kwik-E-Mart)
Task: Make Springfielders Buy Health Food [x6] (3h, Kwik-E-Mart)
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png I sense a bit of hypocrisy. You're anti-Kwik-E-Mart, AND you work here?
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
It's all about the Benjies, girl-dude. I need to maintain my lifestyle somehow.
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
And the Kwik-E-Mart isn't going anywhere. You'd literally need a tank to take this place out!
Tapped Out Wiggum Icon.png Cool coincidence! The police department is considering getting a tank right now!
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
No, piggy, I don't mean LITERALLY literally! I want to crush the Kwik-E-Mart from the inside and then set up my own store!
Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
A totally millennial, religiously void, and secular store! How I wish for such a place!
Tapped Out Ganesh Icon.png
I can grant that wish for your own store... or for a tank! Whichever method you use, just offer me some donuts!
System Message Check the Store now for new temporarily available items with new quests.

Tapped Out Miss Hoover Icon.png Another grey hair... my eye wrinkles are expanding... my tramp stamp is fading. WHAT'S GOING ON?
Tapped Out Dr. Nick Icon.png HI EVERY OLD BODY!!! What it seems you are experiencing is the natural process of aging!
Tapped Out Miss Hoover Icon.png Aging? But I anti-oxidize and hydrate every day! What caused all of this? Is it something in the food?
Tapped Out Dr. Nick Icon.png In all actuallyness, it is something NOT in the food! The preservatives in the terrible food you used to eat kept you preserved! Who'd a thunk it?!
Task: Make Springfielders Buy Unhealthy Food [x6] (3h, Kwik-E-Mart)
System Message Tune into this week's Simpsons and find out what else Jay plans to do with the Kwik-E-Mart. Sunday 8/7 central on FOX!

Tapped Out Jay Icon.png
That's only because the preservatives in your food have destroyed your gut's ability to produce stomach acid.
