Mars Won Pt. 1[edit]

After reaching Level 20 and unlocking Town Hall and Quimby's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Kent Brockman Icon.png Science. What is it? And why is it out to kill us? We have Professor Frink with the frightening details.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Yes Kent, an asteroid appears to be on track to hit Springfield in approximately 42,000 years.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png However there is nothing to worry about. By my calculations, human life will have been extinct for 41,999 years by then.
Tapped Out Kent Brockman Icon.png So, would you say this is the doing of our Martian Insect Overlords?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Well, it's extremely unlikely any intelligent alien life originated on Mars.
Tapped Out Kent Brockman Icon.png There you have it folks! Aliens have conquered Mars, and are now attacking Earth with asteroids.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png Not on my watch! Quick, someone build a rocket launch pad and hang a ‘Mission Accomplished' banner on it.
Task: Build Rocket Launch Pad
Tapped Out Kent Brockman Icon.png The launch pad is built, but will our town be saved? But first, this just in... my mouth: a bite of Springfield's first pizza baked exclusively by cats!

Mars Won Pt. 2[edit]

After tapping on Comic Book Guy's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Comic Book Guy Icon.png If a slew of similar sci-fi movies has taught us anything, it's that the best way to deal with asteroids is atomic bombs!
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png Atomic bombs, eh? I'd be glad to sell you one from my stockpile... in exchange for not being arrested for having a stockpile of atomic bombs.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png Do you have a problem if the bomb is purchased with funds earmarked for orphans?
Tapped Out Mr. Burns Icon.png I prefer it!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Umm, Mr. Burns. I'm afraid I lost the key to the atomic bomb storage slash seasonal firework emporium, but I'm sure it's around here somewhere.
Task: Make Homer Look for Keys (6s, Homes)
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png You know, NARA is now accepting astronaut auditions if any of you gentlemen are interested.
Tapped Out Barney Icon.png I used to be an astronaut, but I gave it up to pursue my dream job -- being a drunk.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png If you want to become an astronaut again, I could help. I am a trained member of the National Astronomics and Radiation Association or NARA. I could be your sports professor.
Tapped Out Barney Icon.png Do you mean coach?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Yes! That's what it's called. How about one last drink before training to celebrate?
Tapped Out Barney Icon.png Sure! Moe, I'd like a keg to stay please.

Mars Won Pt. 3[edit]

After tapping on Homer's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png What brave soul is going to detonate the bomb by riding on it like a cowboy?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png You do realize that you don't need to ride a bomb like a cowboy to make it go off, don't you?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Well NOW I do.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png All we really need is an unmanned missile to hit the asteroid and destroy it.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png I'll build it! I have been looking for a new hobby.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Really? Because you said you were all booked up when I asked you to join my “Can you build a robot that feels?” team.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png We got eighth place. The robot took it really hard.
Task: Make Homer Build an Atomic Missile (6s, Rocket Launch Pad)
Tapped Out Bart Icon.png Some sort of rod shaped object was blown into space.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png My spectral analysis of the object reveals that the rod was both carbon and inanimate!
Tapped Out Comic Book Guy Icon.png Not the Inanimate Carbon Rod! He's a hero!
Tapped Out Rod Icon.png I was named after him.
Tapped Out Todd Icon.png I learned about how he and Jesus walked on the moon in science class.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png I was able to connect to the Hoyvin Glaven satellite and saw the rod peacefully convince the asteroid to move out of the way of Springfield.
Tapped Out Agnes Icon.png If I was twenty years younger and it was legal to marry inanimate objects, I'd marry that rod.
Tapped Out Moe Icon.png How's a Moe like this supposed to compete with a rod like that? Might as well give up and let myself go.
Tapped Out Moe Icon.png Annnnd… done.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png In honor of the rod, I proudly announce that without any proper procedure or legislative oversight, Springfield will start a space program led by Professor Frink!
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png I'll be following the NARA certification process to a ‘T', which is NARA's third most regulated letter.
System Message Get official NARA approval for your space program by earning NARA certification stars.

Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png While the universe is very large, Mayor Quimby, we have yet to discover alien life.
Tapped Out Ned Icon.png There's the Sky Finger. Our intelli-didily-gent designer.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Mayor Quimby, out of respect to science, can we please stop holding meetings with random people in the room?

Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Didn't that robot go crazy and try to stab someone?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png No! It was PROGRAMMED to go crazy and try to stab someone. Big difference.
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Cheap Space Homer Pt. 2[edit]

After tapping on Quimby's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png This space program needs an astronaut! Someone both capable of earning NARA certification stars and relatable to the common man.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Look. I know you're hinting at me coming out of astronaut retirement but I gave all that up when I learned I could get astronaut ice cream on Earth.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png You were an astronaut?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png You don't remember? I trained, went into space, survived an emergency landing? I also held up the Inanimate Carbon Rod at the parade.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png You were the Inanimate Carbon Rod holder? Why didn't you say so?
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png No one remembers? That does it -- I'm entering the NARA certification program.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Great! All you need to do is sign your name.

Tapped Out Marge Icon.png Sometimes I just don't get the point of having a space program.

Tapped Out Luann Icon.png Hey, they started a new exercise program at the astronaut training facility! It's called Narobics.

Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
How come we have to do all this work to get launched into space when rocks get catapulted right away.
Tapped Out Herman Icon.png Psst. Homer. I think I might have an easier way to earn your NARA stars.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
If it's steroids, I'm not interested. My testicles are finally at a size I like.
Tapped Out Herman Icon.png There's another way. Why earn stars when you can make stars?
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
So… you're a wizard?
Tapped Out Herman Icon.png Give me money and I'll give you fake NARA stars. I don't know how to break it down more than that.

DSH Pt. 3.png
Task: Tap the Space Training Center
Task: Earn NARA Certification Stars [x30]

Tapped Out Marge Icon.png Plus you seem to be going through our aluminum foil budget a lot quicker than I planned for.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Don't worry Marge, we're almost finished! All we need is to somehow get our hands on a space shuttle.
Tapped Out Marge Icon.png There isn't even a space shuttle?
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Mayor Quimby bought a hangar without realizing the shuttle inside isn't included. First rule of space: always read the fine print. Second rule of space: don't try to breathe.

Cheap Space Homer Pt. 4[edit]

After tapping on Quimby's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png I could build us a state of the art space shuttle in no time. At least next to no time if you rushed it with few donuts.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png Great! How much is that gonna cost -- two yoga mats and a sprig of mistletoe?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png 50 billion dollars. But it's worth every penny... right down to its novelty smashed penny machine.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png How about instead I buy this vintage USSR shuttle from 1963?
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png It doesn't have NARA certification, but it does have Kremlin's Seal of Not Having Killed Too Many Dogs.
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png I just need to take out a totally legit business loan.
Tapped Out Fat Tony Icon.png Aw yes! I am here from a legitimate business to provide a legitimate business loan.

Of course I do, honey. Daddy was an astronaut, remember?
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png No one in the town does, remember?
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png But if you're going to do this, at least let me teach you the basic science skills you need to survive.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
I keep hearing that from coworkers at the nuclear plant. I don't need to come home and hear it from my family, too!
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
I suppose I could practice collecting ant samples like I will on Mars. Although I hear ants on Mars are ten feet tall and wear top hats.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Alright, lesson one: learning to tell the difference between science and fever dreams.
DSH Pt. 5.png
Task: Make Homer Gather Insect Specimens (8h)
Task: Earn NARA Certification Stars [x50]
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png

Right? You were going to say if things go horribly right?

Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Weather clear, potato chips opened, bladder empty, neck pillow fluffed, talking aloud commenced.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Oops, almost forgot – tray table up!
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Now to just hit the launch button… Where's the launch button?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Hold up just a moment there! A shuttle lacks the necessary propulsion to take it into orbit without rockets!
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Plus it should be on the launch pad.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Don't use your high brow science speak to confuse me Frink! I know what I'm doing... at least as far as space-toilets go.
Tapped Out Marge Icon.png Don't worry about what he says Homer, we'll help you put it all together. How hard can it be?
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png It's not like it's rocket science or anything.

Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Lisa, I could not do this without your brilliant mind, nor your mother's equally brilliant rice crispy treats.
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Hey! I deserve some of the credit. I'm the one who snuck in the plutonium for an extra big bang.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png By Glaven's ghost! Plutonium? That could destroy us all! Although I suppose it all won't matter soon...
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png What do you mean?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Oh, it's still research in progress. But I'll share my findings with you at the Springfield Observatory's slam poetry event and intellectual salon.
System Message Gather Lisa and other intellectual elite at the Springfield Observatory for more information on the hypothetical end of times and to hear some slam poetry.

After tapping on Quimby's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png Good news, Homer! The Inanimate Carbon Rod re-entered the atmosphere and has been recovered!
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png So you're off the hook. The rod can take over the mission and you can go back to being... what were you before? A bum?
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Mark my words. No rod – inanimate carbon, Serling or Stewart – will steal my thunder. I trained for this mission, and I will carry it out!
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Now is the rocket ship automatic or stick? Because I can't drive a stick.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png I'm starting to regret not paying more attention during the training process.

Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Even worse than the chimpanzees?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Even worse than that Collins guy!
Tapped Out Astronaut Barney Icon.png
The least you could do is put out the fires you caused! Some of us sober astronauts are serious about getting into space!
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Fine. I'll put out the literal fires but I refuse to try to fix any of the emotional ones.
Task: Make Homer Put Out Rocket Fuel Fires (2h, Rocket Launch Pad)
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png Homer, you really saved the day!
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Saved the day? He crushed our dreams, ruined our space program, and called me a nerd on several occasions!
Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png But Homer's incompetence gave the Inanimate Carbon Rod the opportunity to pry open the water valve and douse those fires.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png That rod deserves another ticker tape parade! And I deserve another bribe from the ticker tape lobby.
Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

Tapped Out Quimby Icon.png So it's settled, tap the switch on the spaceship to launch when ready.
Task: Make the Rocket Blast Off
Tapped Out Deep Space Homer Icon.png
Why is there so much weird stuff floating around in outer space?

Easter Eggs[edit]

Easter Egg 1[edit]

Task: Make Lisa Gather Space Food (6h, Simpson House)
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png If Springfield is ever going into space, they'll need some hydratable omninutrional amalgamate to eat!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png How much candy is in that, sweetie?
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png None! It's dried soy mixed with green beets and synthetic B vitamins.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Maybe I'll pack my own space lunch.

Easter Egg 2[edit]

Task: Make Marge Gather Space Food (6h, Simpson House)
Tapped Out Marge Icon.png I found that ultra-high proof space alcohol, just like you asked, Professor Frink.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Space martinis! I knew there was a reason I put olives in my pockets. Frink, you've thought of everything.
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png That alcohol is to replace the engine coolant, not to drink!
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png What happened to the original engine coolant?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png You drank it.

Easter Egg 3[edit]

Task: Make Bart Gather Space Food (6h, Simpson House)
Tapped Out Bart Icon.png You know, it's a lot easier to just buy regular food and write “Space” on the front of it.
Tapped Out Bart Icon.png Eggs – too fragile for space. But write space on top and they're good to go.

All Easter Eggs Collected[edit]

After collecting all Easter Eggs:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Mm, that space food was awful tasty. Is there any left?
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Homer! That dehydrated food was enough to supply a space mission for 62 months!
Tapped Out Professor Frink Icon.png Whatever you do, don't drink any water. It will rehydrate the food causing your insides to explode.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Never drink water again – check.
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Now for some freeze-dried dessert.
System Message You've received 5 donuts!

After tapping on Barney's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Astronaut Barney Icon.png
By not spending all my money on beer, I can afford to go back to school. After all, I'm only two credits shy of my PhD.
Tapped Out Astronaut Barney Icon.png
Then I could get a job asking people if they know of any jobs for PhDs.

Tapped Out Moe Icon.png What about your good friend Moe? What is he going to do without his best customer?

Task: Make Astronaut Barney Eat Astronaut Ice Cream (8h, Moe's Tavern)

Tapped Out Carl Icon.png All my memories with Barney are... not there, because we were drunk. I don't think I can start making sober ones.
Tapped Out Lenny Icon.png Let's give it a try. We owe it to Barney after leaving him for dead on so many occasions.
