Tapped Out Dr. Hibbert Icon.png Got ya. Here's a prescription for 700 boxes of Oxycontin.

Quest reward: Cash.png100 and XP.png10

The Price of Donuts Pt. 7[edit]

After tapping on Declan Desmond's exclamation mark:

Task: Make Declan Desmond Visit the Church (12h, First Church of Springfield)

Tapped Out Declan Desmond Icon.png I've heard of everything. But why don't you explain it for the camera...
Tapped Out Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png Our idea of Sky Finger is the idea of the most perfect sky-based finger. Now if it didn't exist, it wouldn't be perfect. So Sky Finger must exist!
Tapped Out Declan Desmond Icon.png I'm convinced... that this scene will never make the final edit of my movie.
Tapped Out Rev. Lovejoy Icon.png I'm surprised it even made it into the game.

The Price of Donuts Pt. 8[edit]

After tapping on Declan Desmond's exclamation mark:
Tapped Out Declan Desmond Icon.png Apu, I've been told that of all the people in Springfield, you've worked most closely with Homer in rebuilding the town. Is that true?
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png Well it was true. But not anymore... thanks to Sky Finger.
Tapped Out Declan Desmond Icon.png Ugh. This again?
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png For some reason Sky Finger got it in its head -- its fingernail? -- that the most productive thing for me to do is feed the octuplets every hour, 24 hours a day.
Tapped Out Apu Icon.png Each octuplet now weighs over 150 pounds!
Tapped Out Snake Icon.png Hands up and pop the cash register!

Tapped Out Wiggum Icon.png Sorry, but that footage has evidence of possible crimes. I'm going to have to confiscate it.
