The Price of Donuts Pt. 1[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "Ah, Springfield. A normal American town...with a dark, evil secret."
Declan Desmond Annoyed Icon.png "At least I hope you have a dark evil secret, or I'll have to make one up."
Comic Book Guy Icon.png "Hey! You're that documentary filmmaker! So did Robert Durst kill somebody here too?"
Declan Desmond Annoyed Icon.png "I'm not THAT documentary filmmaker. I'm Declan Desmond. And I'm here to make my latest work of genius."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "But first I need to find a hotel to stay in. A fancy one, because I consider myself above everyone else since I work in entertainment."


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Now it's time to get down to what I came here to do..."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Find a story, and then win an Oscar by making a movie in the category with the least competition."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 2[]

Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Well well, what have we here? It looks like a little girl doing construction work."
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "“Can Johnny Come Out And Build My High-Rise?” I smell an acceptance speech!"
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Excuse me, miss, how long have you been exploited like this for?"
Lisa Deadpan Icon.png "No one's exploiting me. I'm helping my dad rebuild Springfield."
Homer Serious Icon.png "Lisa, stop talking to that stranger! The only weird, creepy man you're allowed to talk to is me."
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "A family rebuilding a city? This is perfect!"
Declan Desmond Icon.png "I can explore the fascinating topic of city planning, and do that cheesy, lame family stuff studio execs like!"

The Price of Donuts Pt. 3[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Are we rolling? Good. I'm here with Homer Simpson. Homer, how did this all begin?"
Homer Icon.png "Well there was this game called the Smurfs and..."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "No, I mean the rebuilding of Springfield."
Homer Icon.png "Oh. Well the first thing I constructed was my house."
Homer Dreamy Icon.png "At that moment, the entire universe was me and my house. I'd never felt more free and hopeful."
Homer Serious Icon.png "Then my daughter stepped out, I became a parent again, and it all disappeared."

Jobs Started[]

Character Dialogue
Martin Icon.png "Mr. Desmond, if you're looking for a scoop, look at this scientific analysis we did of the new Springfield's city layout."
Martin Icon.png "It turns out to perfectly mirror how a 7-year-old with ADHD would lay out a city."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "Yes, and I'm interviewing that child-minded designer right now. Homer, another question..."
Get Arnie Pye to help Desmond gather footage of Springfield!

The Price of Donuts Pt. 4[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "So after rebuilding your house, what was next?"
Homer Icon.png "Well the way I saw it, I had three options:"
Homer Icon.png "Clean up Springfield for 6 seconds, play with my myPad for 45 seconds, or lounge in the pool for 6 hours."
Homer Sarcastic Icon.png "But none of those seemed as fun as drinking, so I built Moe's bar."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "The second thing you built was a bar?"
Homer Guilty Icon.png "Well I think there was a bunch of stuff in between, but after I went to the bar I kinda didn't remember any of it."

Jobs Started[]

Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Homer, would you care to explain what contribution this tavern makes to the town as a whole?"
Homer Drunk Icon.png "Well, it allows us to get diversity into the game in a relatively non-intrusive way."
Carl Icon.png "Hi!"
Homer Drunk Icon.png "Also, it's a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of the nuclear plant."
Declan Desmond Annoyed Icon.png "You guys work at a nuclear plant? Do you really think you should be drinking on your lunch break?"
Lenny Drunk Icon.png "Of course not! Which is why we're drinking now, before lunch."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 5[]

Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Mr. Burns, it's come to my attention that some of your employees might be coming to work in an impaired state."
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "I was thinking I could film you going undercover as an “Incognito Boss”!"
Mr. Burns Annoyed Icon.png "Where I'd be mingling with the not-so-great unwashed? Keep thinking!"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "Well, then do you mind if I just film inside the plant myself?"
Mr. Burns Icon.png "That depends. Will there be a red carpet premiere with Bette Davis in attendance?"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "Uh... sure, why not."
Mr. Burns Icon.png "Then fine. Just don't step in any of the radiation."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 6[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Sad Icon.png "Thanks for seeing me on such short notice, Doc."
Dr. Hibbert Sad Icon.png "Is that a camera? I swear, I did nothing wrong. Those 700 boxes of Oxycontin were for patients with cold sores."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "I'm not shooting an expose. I'm here because I filmed in the nuclear plant and now I'm not feeling well."
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png "Got ya. Here's a prescription for 700 boxes of Oxycontin."
Declan Desmond Angry Icon.png "No, really -- I'm not feeling good!"
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png "Well, you're about to be. *chuckles*"

Jobs Started[]

Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "The line at the pharmacy sure is long. Might as well make use of the time by interviewing some residents."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Excuse me, sir, could I interview you for my documentary?"
Cocoa Beanie Icon.png "Sure, as long as Sky Finger doesn't tell me I need to attend Chocoholics Anonymous."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "“Sky Finger?” What's that?"
Cocoa Beanie Icon.png "Duh, that giant finger that comes out of the sky and tells us what to do!"
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "Uh... maybe I'll just talk to this lady instead."
Mrs. Muntz Icon.png "Sorry, can't talk. Sky Finger just told me I need to have a Counting Crows phase. I'll be back in 8 hours if you want to catch me then."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 7[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Sorry to bug you again, Doc."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "I noticed that many of the town's residents are convinced there's a giant “Sky Finger” that tells them what to do."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Are you aware of any mass psychotic episode affecting the populace?"
Dr. Hibbert Happy Icon.png "Aside from the mass psychotic episodes caused by taking 700 boxes of Oxycontin? Nope."
Dr. Hibbert Icon.png "But if you want to investigate crazy belief systems, I'm not the one you should talk to."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Who is?"


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Reverend, I'm having a crisis of faith. Why should I believe in this Sky Finger when there's no sensory evidence for it?"
Rev. Lovejoy Annoyed Icon.png "Sensory evidence, shmensory evidence! Apparently you've never heard of St. Anselm's Ontological Argument for the existence of Sky Finger."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "I've heard of everything. But why don't you explain it for the camera..."
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!"
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "I'm convinced... that this scene will never make the final edit of my movie."
Rev. Lovejoy Sad Icon.png "I'm surprised it even made it into the game."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 8[]

Character Dialogue
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?"
Apu Icon.png "Well it was true. But not anymore... thanks to Sky Finger."
Declan Desmond Sad Icon.png "Ugh. This again?"
Apu Angry 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."
Apu Sad Icon.png "Each octuplet now weighs over 150 pounds!"
Snake Icon.png "Hands up and pop the cash register!"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "Boy, was I lucky to walk in here just in time to catch a robbery on film!"
Apu Sad Icon.png "Not that lucky. It happens every hour too."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 9[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Mr. Brockman, I'm investigating the rebuilding of Springfield."
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "As a fellow journalist, I was wondering if you could help me out with some archival footage of the early days of the rebuilding."
Brockman Icon.png "Sorry. I was going to shoot some footage of it, but got too busy playing poker with Krusty, dining at the Swanky Fish, relaxing, and checking my Wikipedia page."
Professor Frink Icon.png "All is not lost! I have a way to transport you to the moments right after the explosion, when Springfield started rebuilding!"
Professor Frink Icon.png "You're welcome to take the Chrono Trike for a spin... if you product place it in every scene of your movie."


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "My gosh, it turns out Homer accepted payments to construct his own house! In cash AND donuts!"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "This footage is gonna be even bigger than the keyboard cat video! Overpriced Malibu beach house with rocky unusable beach, here I come!"
Wiggum Icon.png "Sorry, but that footage has evidence of possible crimes. I'm going to have to confiscate it."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "Could you at least taze me while I have my hands up so I have something good to replace it with?"

The Price of Donuts Pt. 10[]


Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Annoyed Icon.png "Taking bribes to build buildings? Why didn't you tell me about this earlier?"
Homer Sad Icon.png "I was kinda hoping you'd offer me some cash or donuts to tell you."
Declan Desmond Deadpan Icon.png "If the residents find out, you'll be run out of town. But fortunately the footage is secure in the hands of the police."
Wiggum Serious Icon.png "Bad news, gentlemen. The footage has been leaked."
Declan Desmond Angry Icon.png "How did that happen?"
Wiggum Icon.png "A bidding war between TMZ and Perez Hilton... and the department needed a new Technivorm for the break room."
Patty Icon.png "I warned Marge that Homer would one day be responsible for the next big national scandal."


Character Dialogue
Chalmers Angry Icon.png "Homer Simpson? More like Homer Madoff!"
Patty Angry Icon.png "While that bastard's been living large, I've been living on only four packs a day!"
Quimby Icon.png "The only way this mob will be pacified will be to have a public trial."
Quimby Smug Icon.png "With a guilty verdict, of course."
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "If he gets the death penalty can I film it?"

The Price of Donuts Pt. 11[]

Character Dialogue
Declan Desmond Icon.png "I presume this is your first time in a prison cell?"
Homer Serious Icon.png "If you don't count the virtual prison cell that is suburban living."
Homer Guilty Icon.png "Or the dozens of times I've been in prison cells."
Lou Annoyed Icon.png "Simpson! Here's your dinner. Bon appetit!"
Homer Ooh Icon.png "Cool, what is it?"
Lou Annoyed Icon.png "Whaddya think it is? Slop."
Homer Slobbering Icon.png "Mmmmmmm... slop."

The Price of Donuts Pt. 12[]


Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon.png "The court is called to order! Prosecution, you may proceed."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon.png "We will show that Homer willfully and maliciously enriched himself at the expense of Springfield's citizens."
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon.png "If found guilty, we request that Homer repay all cash and donuts to the Homer Simpson Victims Fund, which I will distribute fairly to all aggrieved parties, less the 85% administration fee."
Judge Snyder Icon.png "Prosecution, you may call your witnesses."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "The Ho. J. Simpson trial will be the biggest of the century!"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "And I'm the guy with the camera."

Luigi's Job Started[]

Character Dialogue
Luigi Sad Icon.png "My mama come-a all-a the way from Italy to visit..."
Luigi Angry Icon.png "But when-a she stay at the «Sleep Easy Motel» she no-a can sleep _ cause-a Homer put the Noiseland Video Arcade right next to it!"

Skinner's Job Started[]

Character Dialogue
Skinner Annoyed Icon.png "He built dozens of blue houses, but wouldn't let me live in any of them. I had to sleep at the school until Mom arrived."

Fat Tony's Job Started[]

Character Dialogue
Fat Tony Icon.png "Our contracting firm supplied Homer with all his construction labor."
Fat Tony Icon.png "And let's just say we were told to «slow things down» unless we were brought donuts."


Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon.png "Thank you, witnesses. The court will now recess while I decide how to rule on the case."
Homer Happy Icon.png "But if anyone has two donuts I can make it happen immediately!"

The Price of Donuts Pt. 13[]


Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon.png "The court will now render its verdict. We find the defendant..."
Declan Desmond Angry Icon.png "OBJECTION!"
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Your honor, after hours of hearing about this Sky Finger I decided to investigate."
Declan Desmond Icon.png "So I used a drone-mounted camera to fly above the Sky Finger...and saw it belonged to a giant 7-year-old!"
Martin Icon.png "Called it!"
Declan Desmond Icon.png "Homer isn't to blame for the terrible city planning. It's the fault of this child!"
Blue-Haired Lawyer Icon.png "OBJECTION! Sky Finger couldn't be a child -- you have to enter your age to play."
Judge Snyder Icon.png "Overruled. He could have been playing on his parent's device."
Judge Snyder Icon.png "In light of this new evidence, the court shall reconsider its verdict."


Character Dialogue
Judge Snyder Icon.png "Upon extensively reviewing the evidence, which provided a welcome break from getting in shape for roles in local films..."
Judge Snyder Icon.png "I find Homer Simpson NOT GUILTY."
Homer Icon.png "Whew! Mr. Desmond, how can I thank you?"
Declan Desmond Happy Icon.png "By writing a bunch of positive reviews of the documentary on Metacritic."
Declan Desmond Icon.png

"I don't have the money to pay an army of fake reviewers like the big studios do."
