Salem: Chapter 4.8 "Smooth Criminal?"

Last time with the Diffys, there was toddler training and many birthdays. Namely, Kim and Jane's birthday from toddlers into children. This time...

Kim and Gilbert are the best of friends.
Kim: "Muah!"
I think that their bedroom is pretty cute, now.
Jane: "Hi Aunt Ami!"
Jane: "All this junk..."
Jane: "Seems like it could be reused somehow."
A TV has been bought to satisfy Kim's couch potato cravings.
Gilbert: "And mine!"
Please don't get fleas on the couch.

And now: C.B. is a horrible elderly fireman!

Cinnamon Bun: "And I can't fight this feeeeling anymore..."
C.B., no.

Cinnamon Bun: "We should get a hottub."
Cinnamon Bun Diffy!!!
Cinnamon Bun: "Ew, that is some nasty trash."
Cinnamon Bun: "You've got to get out of here, Johnny!"
Johnny Smith: "But what about my paintings?!"
I'm giving up on you Sims; maybe there's hope for the next generation.
Thad: "Our dads are best friends; that's awesome. We should be best friends too."
Jane: "You're supposed to be in swimsuit attire, Thad. That's the party rule."
Thad: "Oh, sorry. Does this mean we can't be best friends?"
Jane: "I'll still consider it."
Jane: "Woo, party!"
Salem is aging into an adult.
C'mon, Salem, don't look down *there*. You can do that later, when people aren't watching.
Salem: "Heheh, it's all good."
Hello Gilbert!
Jane: "Kim, you're never gonna hit me!"
Kim: "Hahaha, ok then, I'm not even looking."
Kim: "Did it hit?"

Jane: "Hymph, how did she do that?"
Hello my gnomie.
As it is summer, Kim and Jane wished to set off some fireworks.
Kim: "Whoa."
Jane: "Eeeheehee."

Jane: "Must. Acquire. More."
 Gilbert: "I've caught something for my human companions."
 Jane: "Hey Gonzalo."
Gonzalo Singles-Smith: "Hi Jane."
 Jane: "Watch this, I can impersonate Mr. Nigmos."
 Jane: "Hold on; hahaha...ok here I go."
 Jane: "Hello class, pay no attention to my purposefully windblown hair."
 Jane: "And today we will learn more science-y things. Like protons! All the kids like protons, right?"
 Jane: "Excuse me, *ahem* I think I see Ms. Hurst over there. I've got to, uh, ask for some paperclips!"
 Jane: "Why hello, Charlene. Fine day today." *wiggles hips*
Gonzalo: "Haha, you've got him pegged."
 Maura: "Did you just get back?"
 Salem: "Yeah, it was a marathon at work last night. Boss had to get ready for that big event."
 Gilbert: "MEOW."
 Kim: "Ugh, Gilbert!"
 Kim: "Now I can't sleep."
 Kim: "I'm sorry, Gilbert. I didn't really mean to yell at you."
 Kim: "You just wanted me to play with you, isn't that right?"
 Now for a visit to the Beaker-Subject house.
 Emily: "It's so nice to see this house again."
 Cinnamon Bun: "They put in a ping pong table in the same spot!"
 Thad: " I checked under the bed and I'm pretty sure I was just imagining those serpent monsters..."
 Ashley: "So Maura, where's Salem tonight?"
Maura: "He's working late; it happens a lot."
Ashley: "So that's...that's what you believe."
Maura: "I don't like what you're implying."
Ashley: "Look, I feel a little torn because you're family, but he's my best friend."
 Maura: "You have something to say, so just tell me, Ashley."
Ashley: " partner at the station has brought Salem in on multiple occasions. I'm not privy to the details because of my relationship with him, but I know that he's stayed in jail overnight before."
 Maura: "What? That can't be right!"
Ashley: "I don't want to believe it either, but where is he all the time? Haven't there been occasions where he doesn't come home for days? Is he home right now? Don't delude yourself!"
 Maura: "Maybe Salem has been deceptive, but it might be that I overlook that because I love him."
 Maura: "You would know something about that, right, Ashley? Overlooking the behavior of your spouse?"
 Ashley: "This isn't about me right now, Maura. I'm only telling you this because I see that he loves you, and I believe that you can help him. Look online; if he has a record it shouldn't be too hard to find."
 The house is silent when Maura returns home; everyone there has gone to bed.

Maura: "Salem?"
 Maura: "He really isn't home."


Next time: Maura will investigate this information. Will she confront Salem? And the twins have another birthday.


  1. Poor Maura, that's gotta suck knowing someone else knows what her husband really been up to instead of her. Tsk tsk at Salem. Maybe he didn't want to upset her and that's why he decided not to say.

    LOL'd at Jane making the impression of the teacher.

    1. Yeah, it would be hard to hear something so important from someone other than your spouse. He's always kept it a secret; he knows that his family wouldn't approve of it, and they still think he's working for some sort of charity business.

      Jane's sense of humor is better than mine; I'm not so sure I'll be able to keep up with her.

      Thanks for reading!

  2. "C'mon, Salem, don't look down *there*. You can do that later, when people aren't watching." -- PAHAHAHAHAA!! I never noticed where they look before! That's brilliant :P

    Janes impression was hilarious hah!

    And I don't know what to say to Maura. I'm kinda shocked she never suspected he was cheating on her, tbh! Who has to work for days at a time? I'm glad Ashley told her, she deserves to know.

    1. Haha, I just noticed where he was looking in that picture as I was writing and thought "I have to use this."

      I love that she can do impressions; I don't see those animations very often.

      Maura has had her suspicions, but she wants to trust Salem. I like that you say "cheating"; he is cheating on her with his "job", and I hadn't thought of it that way before. Ashley is a good guy, and he did what he thought was the right thing. I still find it funny that he's a police officer and his best friend is a criminal.

      Thanks for reading :D

  3. I loved the impression Jane did, that was hilarious.
    Poor Maura, all this time not knowing and not wanting to know what her husband is up to.

    1. Yep, she definitely didn't want to know, so she just went along with what he told her. She wanted to believe him, even if she knew it didn't make sense.

      Thanks for reading!
