"Herb! Why didn't you call and tell me you were coming to town?"
"I did, last week. And yesterday. And this morning."
"Heck, news that I was coming leaked to the Internet months ago!"
Herb is referencing to
Nostalgia and Kitsch, a questline that was in the files since the first release of The Homer on March 11, 2015, and was leaked by the user LPNintendoITA. It couldn't be started because it requires the player to have unlocked Herb Powell, who wasn't in the game until the level 55 update.

"So what brings you all the way here from Detroit?"
"I just needed to be in a town that doesn't look like it was leveled by an explosion."
"Actually, Springfield WAS leveled by an explosion."
"Yeah, I'm seeing it now. But it's still better than Detroit."
"Well I'm glad you're here. This will give us a chance to finally hang out together!"
"It sure will."
"Look at all this underdevelopment. Springfield is ripe for a new business. I just have to figure out what business to start."
"With your fancy business school degree, I'm sure you'll figure it out."
"Business school is mostly just partying with other people who are good looking but not good looking enough to be actors."
"But who knows, maybe I learned something useful. Hmmmmm...."
"Did you come up with anything?"
"Well, I did learn how to pick up undergrads by buying them craft cocktails."
"But anything business-related?"
"No. I'll just have to do what B-school grads always do."
"Repurpose an old idea and call it original."
"I think I've got it! The next Big Thing!"
"Yeah? What is it?"
"I'll tell you in private, where there aren't any B-school grads listening."
"Remember my baby translator?"
"Why are you saying that with a question mark? That's my idea."
"Oh. Well... uh... that's a great idea, son! I'm so proud of you!"
"Really? Now that you like it, I'm not so sure..."
"I've done it again! Or for the first time... I'm not exactly sure. But I've done it. I give you the Baby Translator 2.0!"
"Ooh, like that Tosh show! But how is it different than the one you made me buy years ago?"
"Well, I reverse the polarity of the capacitors -- don't look up if that makes sense -- to make it run in reverse."
"So instead of translating baby talk into adult, it translates adult talk to babies."
"It's brilliant, I'm so proud of you."
"Ugh. You're right, it's a terrible idea."
"Well, you'll be happy to know that I bailed on my reverse baby-translator idea."
"Actually, that kind of disappoints me."
"Finally! I gave the patent to my old B-school professor. He's going to use it to translate his lectures into baby."
"That way people can finally send babies to business school."
"What's the point of sending babies to business school?"
"What's the point of sending anyone to business school?"
