Last time with the Diffys, Maura’s abduction assuaged her anger at Salem, Maura also discovered that Salem has been doing scientific experiments in the garage, and all the girls went out for bowling. This time…
Jane is totally licensed to drive a firetruck.
Maura: “Have you made any progress at the organization?”
Salem: “Maura, it’s not easy. I can’t just leave; I know they wouldn’t let me.”
Maura: “I know it’s not easy, Salem. But you’re smart; you’ll figure out a way.”
Maura: “This information can’t get out, though. It isn’t just you or me. Our daughters will be starting their own lives soon; I don’t want them to be ostracized for this.”
Salem: “Of course. I have to be careful.”
Did you guys like the movie?
Kim: “The costume was all wrong!”
Welp, have fun bowling!
Jane: “You’re not coming with us?”
I’ve had my fill of watching you guys bowl.
In her ambitious goal of improving Strangetown, Maura has started to buy properties around town. In other words, the miscellaneous fun is Property Mogul, which is fulfilled by owning/being a partner of three properties in town. With our limited funds, we have become partner at the diner. I can’t find a picture of the diner right now, so here’s Maura.
And bought the fishing hole. How about some fishing, Emily?
Cinnamon Bun: “Emily!”
Cinnamon Bun: “Let her live! You can do that, I know you can!”
Grim: “Don’t you see? She’s already moving on.”
Dog: “Throw the man a bone, for Pete’s sake.”
Although C.B. was the only one to see her die, the whole household is of course affected by Emily’s death.
Salem: “Help me out with this?”
Salem: “Jane, you know I’m here for you…”
Kim: “Mom, I know it’s Feast day, but…”
Kim: “I don’t feel thankful now with Grandma gone.”
Maura: “Try to have a good time today, Kim. Feast day only comes maybe three times in a lifetime. This is my second Feast day, and I’m going to try to enjoy it. Be thankful that your grandmother lived as long as she did.”
Someone wanted to have a feast party; I’m guessing everyone because that’s how festive my Sims are.
It’s probably creepy to have an urn staring at you while you eat, but I’m not ready to stick Emily on a shelf yet.
Thad: “I’m sorry your grandmother died. I didn’t know her well, but I miss her, too.”
Kim: “Thank you, Thad.”
Maura: *sniff* “I really do miss her. I wouldn’t miss my own mother, but I miss Emily.”
Gilbert is in mourning too, but he’s not good at showing it.
Kim: “Do you really have to drag me out bowling tonight, Jane?”
Jane: “I can’t stay in the house right now, Kim. It’s too much.”
Cinnamon Bun: “Emily…”
Cinnamon Bun: “I miss you.”
Maura is at the gym to work on her athletic skill.
Maura: “And that is just the person I want to see when I’m trying to work the stress out.”
Salem: “There may be a way for me to get out of the business. Carmen is going to jail.”
Maura: “Really? Are you going to be ok?”
Salem: “Yeah, he’s the only one that there is enough evidence to arrest. But this has really scared everyone, and I think I can convince them to disband. If the rest of us walk away quietly, we should be fine. Everyone except Carmen, of course.”
Maura: “Everyone should be scared! What they’re doing is against the law. Scheming, fraud, burglary…”
Maura: “Jail is only to be expected after all that.”
Salem: “Yeah, and I’m one of those people.”
Maura: “I’m sorry, but you know it’s wrong. That’s why you’re getting out of it now.”
Salem: “If I can convince everyone. Then again, maybe it won’t matter if I don’t. Me and Carmen had a pretty good relationship. It would make sense if I left without him being there anymore.”
Maura: “I’m sorry I’ve been nagging you. I just worry so much.”
Maura: “So many times you would be gone overnight, and sometimes for several days.”
Salem: “Don’t worry now; I have a plan, and I’m going to follow through on it.”
Jane: “So we’re both having to study, even on the day of prom.”
Kim: “I’m not really studying; I’m working on an article for the school paper.”
Jane: “Well you suck. Such a go-getter.”
As Jane mentioned, it is “prom” night. I built this community lot by the school; let’s see how it goes.
We’ve got two elderly chaperones.
That is Tanesha, Ashley and Bridgette’s daughter. I think she’s super cute.
And Jane comes out of the bathroom all dressed up.
Jane: “Now the party can start!”
The girl here in the red dress has an interesting name: Faith Loste.
Thad and Kim decide to try some dancing.
And Jane joins them on the dance floor.
Jane: “This would be more awesome with disco balls!”
Tanesha: “So true.”
Maura: “The dance should be about over. Faith, where are Jane and Kim?”
Faith: “Over there, Mrs. Diffy.”
Everyone is having a fabulous time, perhaps even the ghost.
Kim: “Does this mean the dance is over? Haha.”
Maura: “Now that I’m here, I’m not about to waste an opportunity to wear this dress.”
Jane: “My mom is dancing now. Can I go?”
The dance is wrapping up; you can go home.
Jane: “Awesome. Hoodie time!”
Maura has gotten pretty good at dancing by now.
And the next day is the girls’ birthday.
Jane: “I’ve had coffee today! Yeah!”
Wow, you really don’t need that, Jane.
Maura: “Be careful; I’ve heard of birthday candles starting fires before.”
Jane: “Ha! You’d have to be pretty dumb to somehow start a fire with little birthday candles.”
I would appreciate you not insulting the intelligence of your great-grandfather, Jane.
Kim is actually going to age up first this time.
Kim’s traits are now couch potato, loves the heat, grumpy, ambitious, and bookworm. Her Lifetime Wish is to be a Star News Anchor.
Jane: “Wait! I’m not ready!”
Jane: “I need more coffee!”
No, you’re growing up now!
Jane’s traits are now eccentric, grumpy, good sense of humor, social butterfly, and irresistible. Her Lifetime Wish is to be Super Popular.
Next time: The start of the fifth generation! Woo!
