Marge at the Bat: Walkthrough

Marge at the Bat Pt. 1

Auto starts

Mr. Burns: Smithers! Get your pasty-white dress shirt in my office right this minute!
Smithers: I'm already here, sir. Gazing at you silently like I do all night while you sleep.
Mr. Burns: Well, stop being creepy and get me Aristotle Amadopolis! We have a feud that needs settling.

Mr. Burns: It did? Jeez, my memory isn't what it used to be. I should do more crossword puzzles.
Aristotle Amadopolis: A rematch would be my pleasure. I'll see you on the blood diamond.
Mr. Burns: Curse you, you swarthy Greek salad! Oh God, now I'm repeating myself?

Marge at the Bat Pt. 2

Smithers starts

Smithers: So, sir, would you like me to call up the ringers again?
Mr. Burns: Ringers? No, that didn't work last time.
Smithers: Actually, it did. You won, remember? No, of course you don't.
Mr. Burns: I've seen a lot of baseball movies. What we need is a band of misfits: a nerd, a fat guy, an angry guy, and a coach who doesn't care if we win.
Smithers: How many baseball movies have you seen exactly?
Mr. Burns: Just one so far: the Bad News Bears. I hope Part Two is as good as Part One.

Smithers: So you want to go with the ringers then?
Mr. Burns: No, that's just what you say before you add a cool guy and a girl to your roster, causing the team to gel. Don't you know anything about baseball?

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Marge at the Bat Pt. 3

Homer starts

Homer: Burns is forming a baseball team again? Baseball was lame then, and it's lamer now!
Carl: It's like the old man's run out of ideas. Or some old men somewhere have.
Lenny: We should totally not sign up for this.
Homer: Look, Mindy signed up in the slot for "Girl".

Homer: And Comic Book Guy is the "angry guy"? He seems harmless.

Marge at the Bat Pt. 4

Marge starts

Marge: You're playing sports with Mindy from work?! Over my dead body!
Homer: Well, it's me playing sports... so it's probably going to result in MY dead body.
Marge: Mr. Burns! I demand you take Mindy off the team.
Mr. Burns: But we need a woman. You can't have a team of misfits without at least one woman. And no more than one woman.
Marge: Well the only woman Homer is going to be breaking a sweat around is yours truly!

Task: Make Marge Sign Up For The Team
Time: 4h
Location: Control Building
Task: Make Burns Fire Mindy Without Cause
Time: 4h

Marge: Thank you, Mr. Burns. I probably should have mentioned earlier that I know nothing about playing baseball.
Mr. Burns: You can't play? Then excellent, you'll be the coach!
Homer: What?!
Mr. Burns: Those who can't do, teach. Or coach. All that matters is that they're in a position of power over those who know what they're doing.
Krusty: Like non-writing Executive Producers?
Mr. Burns: Exactly.

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Marge at the Bat Pt. 5

Marge starts

Tennis Marge: All right, team! Who wants to catch some fly balls? And as a unrelated question, can anyone here hit fly balls?
Softball Mr Burns: What's going on here?! You call this a practice?
Tennis Marge: I did in the email I sent out to everyone.
Softball Mr Burns: They'll have plenty of time to learn to catch and hit in the game. Practice is about fleshing out the characters.
Softball Mr Burns: The nerd should be missing plays because he's watching other people play baseball on his laptop.
Softball Mr Burns: And the angry guy should just be getting really mad and yelling at everyone.
Comic Book Guy: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard!
Softball Mr Burns: That's more like it.

Task: Make Team Members Practice in Weird Ways [x3]
Time: 4h
Location: Control Building
Characters: Homer, Barney, Lenny, Carl, Comic Book Guy, Disco Stu, Baseball Jasper, Moe, Zutroy

Softball Mr Burns: Excellent. I like how the cool guy spiked the Gatorade when no one was looking.
Tennis Marge: He did what now?
Disco Stu: Disco Stu has an issue with alcoholism too.
Softball Mr Burns: Now I want everyone to go home and get into giant arguments with their loved ones.
Softball Mr Burns: Then tomorrow I want the best player on the team to quit, but change his mind at the last minute because of something his dad says.
Softball Mr Burns: Great practice, coach!
Tennis Marge: But I didn't even get to bring out my orange slices.

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Marge at the Bat Pt. 6

Marge starts

Marge: Our team is ready. I found out our nerd only got an 1100 on his SATs. Can you help me, Lisa?
Lisa: I don't think I should. I turned into a real monster that week I coached Bart's team.
Marge: But you won the championships.
Lisa: Actually, we lost. You should do more crosswords, Mom.
Marge: Please, I need your help. The game is tomorrow and I haven't even started slicing oranges yet.
Lisa: Well, I guess I could crunch some stats with Sabermetrics.
Marge: Great, and after you eat you can help me with the team.

Marge at the Bat Pt. 7

Mr. Burns starts

Softball Mr Burns: All right, team! I've got a good feeling about today. This game is going to be as good as Bad News Bears Go To Japan!
Lisa: Actually, Mr. Burns, I ran the numbers and our chance of winning today is zero. Which
Location: coincidentally, is the Rotten Tomatoes score for Bad News Bears Go To Japan.
Softball Mr Burns: Young lady, I've had it up to here with your pessimism. And your hip 1990s "big data". The Bad News Bears won, didn't they?
Lisa: Actually, they famously lost.
Softball Mr Burns: Curse my memory!
Tennis Marge: Does anyone know what positions they're supposed to play?

Task: Make Marge Manage the Bullpen

Tennis Marge: My God, this is a disaster!
Lisa: I know. We're down by twenty runs, and there's only one inning left.
Tennis Marge: I was talking about these orange slices. I meant to make the first slice core-to-core, but I must have done it around the middle.

Quest reward: $100 and 10 XP

Marge at the Bat Pt. 8

Homer starts

Homer: Okay Homer, this is your moment to shine. All you have to do to win the game is take a ball to the head like last time.
Homer: <nowiki>*</nowiki>oof<nowiki>*</nowiki>
Tennis Marge: Homer! Are you okay?
Homer: Did we win?
Tennis Marge: No, we're not at bat yet. You let the ball hit you in the head while you were fielding. I think you have a concussion.
Homer: I'm going to sleep for a little now.

Task: Make Homer Sleep During His Concussion

Task: Make Marge Cut More Oranges While Worrying About Homer
Time: 4h

Smithers: I'm sorry, Mr. Burns. Your team just lost.
Softball Mr Burns: In that case, I'll stop doing this crossword. Ah yes, my brain's already starting to forget things. And 3-2-1...
Softball Mr Burns: We won!
Tennis Marge: <nowiki>*</nowiki>sigh<nowiki>*</nowiki> Well, that game was humiliating.
Lisa: Yeah. But on the upside, we lost by the exact number of runs that I predicted.
Bart: And I can confirm that, because I bet that we'd lose by that much and won a bunch of money!
Tennis Marge: Is Homer still sleeping?
Bart: It looks like it. But at least he's not snoring anymore.
