* AndTheAdventureContinues: In "The Buck Stops Here, The Work Also" (the last non-premium quest when the game first launched), Homer leaves Mayor Quimby to lead the rebuilding efforts of Springfield, with the following dialogue occurring:
-->'''Homer:''' Don't worry, there's plenty more of Springfield to create...‎ including brothels and sleazy motels.‎\\
'''Marge:''' No, NOT including those.‎\\
'''Homer:''' Okay, not those.‎‎ But there's a lot more to build and do...‎ as long as those lazy game designers are still on the ball.‎‎ I give it 50-50.

** Maggie Simpson only appeared in Marge's ''Take Maggie for a Walk'' task until Christmas 2015, when Maggie was finally made into her own character (to the point where Marge's portrait was revised so that she's no longer holding Maggie), and Maggie's earlier appearances were {{Handwave}}d as actually being a sack of flour in a blue onesie.

* FemBot: R.O.S.A., the Robotic Offspring-Sitting Automaton, is a robot nanny who works at the nuclear plant's daycare center. Her job is to give children incentives to perform manual labor and reward them donuts for completing their tasks. The ultimate goal of the final main quests is to recover her parts and rebuild her in order to learn the truth behind the plant's meltdown.


Added DiffLines:

* FullMotionVideo: There are six main cutscenes presented this way: "Kaboom!" (which sets up the game's premise), "Home Alone" (after Homer finishes a plant shift for the first time), "Treehouse" (when Bart's treehouse is rebuilt), "True Love" (after Moe's Tavern is rebuilt), "Maggie" (after the Play-Dough Factory is rebuilt), and "The End of the Beginning" (when Homer cracks R.O.S.A.'s password at the game's climax). 2015's Superheroes event featured two exclusive FMV cutscenes: "The Death of Radioactive Man", and "The Return of Radioactive Man".


Added DiffLines:

* GrandFinale: "The End of the Beginning" is this for the main quest line, but of course, the game's more expansive than that, and as long as updates continue...


Added DiffLines:

* RememberWhenYouBlewUpTheSun: After the Ayn Rand School for Tots is built during "The End of the Beginning" quests, Homer starts repeatedly boasting about blowing up the town.


Added DiffLines:

* SpitTake: During "The End of the Beginning" quest set, when Homer is informed that the Maggie he was watching over was actually a sack of flour, he gains an exclusive task: ''Spit Take''. This simply takes six seconds before the storyline progresses. Later in the quest, when Mr. Burns delivers a WhamLine to Homer, Homer once again has to do the ''Spit Take'' task to continue, only this time it takes ''[[UpToEleven ten hours]]''.


Added DiffLines:

* WhamLine: During one part of "The End of the Beginning" series:
-->'''Homer:''' Mr. Burns! I demand a raise... as well as paid time off for Homerka, Rosh Homershana, and Simpsom Kipur. Keep in mind that I'm that guy who blew up the town, and that will make you say yes to me for some reason.\\
'''Mr. Burns:''' [[spoiler:No, youíre the man who THINKS he blew up the town. The truth is you had nothing to do with it.]]\\
''(Cue [[UpToEleven a TEN HOUR]] SpitTake from Homer.)''

* DarkIsNotEvil: The Spaaaaaace Mutant from the Halloween 2014 event is grotesque, but he is actually a peaceful, intelligent being, and the point of his quest chain is to prove to Springfield that he's not the mindless killing machine movies portray him as. [[spoiler:Though he ''does'' get a bit...rampage-y when hungry.]]
