The Urbz: Sims in the City (Game Boy Advance)
|The Urbz: Sims in the City|
Unused text. Early screenshots.
A sequel of sorts to The Sims: Bustin' Out, beginning directly after the events of the first game where your Sim (or, Urb) gets sent to their home planet in a rocket ship, which crashes back on Earth. Your goal? Thwart the greedy Daddy Bigbucks' plans, and return King Tower to its former soaring glory.
While being mostly identical to the first game in terms of game play, it's noticeably much more creative with its missions, having you impress people, impersonate people, and even attempt to make running legal again.
A Nintendo DS port released in the same month as a launch title.

Welcome to Miniopolis! Thank you for visiting! Transfer failed. Please make sure the Game Boy Advance is connected properly. Unable to link to the Nintendo GameCube.

You found the Bayou Storage area! You found the Sim Quarter Storage area! You found the Miniopolis Storage area!
Some strings that probably were meant to show up when the player entered any of the storage areas.
House Warming Gift
@1 gave you @2 as a House Warming Gift!
This likely would have appeared after getting a housewarming gift.

These are grouped in with the other character introductions.

Extra Rep Group
This is a string grouped in with the rest of the rep group names. It is likely a shorthand for "independent", the name given to characters who are not in a rep group.
Zodiac and Personality System

These were for a personality system, probably identical to the ones in the GBA Bustin' Out. These strings can be seen used in some early screenshots.

Some of these were not intended to be used. Others are not used because no Sim is programmed with a location on that map.
This is a bad time. Try me in the morning. Why would I bother? I don't even like you!
These messages are likely different kinds of refusal when the player asks a character to visit their house.
Aw! Plant one right here, girl! Gosh, that's fine idea. Don't mind if I do.
I looked into buying a talented chimpanzee, but very few know how to pick pock- er, pick their nose. Come hither and embrace me, @1! Ah! Sure I'll move in with you. What a splendid way to meet a whole new set of clients.
I have my pet rabbit to thank for my interest in journalism. Why? Well... isn't it obvious? Come here, you! Oh! Sure, I'll live with you, buddy. But be warned: I stay up late.
Aw! Aw! You know, It'd be real fun to share accommodations with you for a bit. Sure.
A piece of human interest seems to be the loving way. If arms were ribbons consider this my bow. Ah! I cannot kiss that which I cannot touch. To haunt your house with your permission, this I will do.
Hugs are free, yes. But they are also round. Ah!
I was so proud my pet lizard Harvey was cast as the lead in a new gladiator film. Sure he beat me for the role... but he was wonderful! It's so good to see you too! Let's do lunch. Ah! Sure, so long as you help me memorize my lines.
Eh? Does that have a saucy secondary meaning I am not aware of? Aw! Aw! Ugh! No! Your breath smells like everything but fresh! Of course I will. How wonderful!
I have a cute little pug named Paris. You don't think I'll get sued for that, do you? I hope not. It's fun to be this close to me, huh? Oh! Okay! That'd be killer! We're going to have such an awesome time.
Luthor L. Bigbucks
Wrap your arms around me, baby. Yeah! Sure, why not. It'll be just like college all over again.
Aw! Aw! I would gladly share accommodations with you. When do I move in? Now?
Sooner or later, every disease that pets get will jump to humans! The end is near! You washed your hands before you hugged me, right? Eek! Sure, why not? So long as you don't mind the smell of bleach.
I totally want a pet dolphin so it can protect me from sharks. Gee, thanks. You're sweet. Oh! Okay! I can't wait to redecorate your dumpy pad.
Arrr, you've cracked my barnacle encrusted heart! That's right, give poor Olde Salty a nice hug. Yay! I'll kiss no one! Not until you proves your devotion! You're darn tooting! I'd be your roommate any day.
My mom was a cat lady and my dad was a dog guy, so I learned to love pets very early on. But I'll never forget the smell. Aw! Aw!
Your colorful colloquy is highly amusing. Aw! Aw! Yes. To maintain a domicile with you would be most enlightening.
If I tell you I like snakes, you'd better not make any jokes. Got it? Aw! Aw! Why not, right? It'll be loads of fun. I'm moving in today!
Come by the carnival sometime! There are lots of needy animals there. Aw! Aw! Sure, why not? It'll be fun, you know? A real laugh.
I'm not organized enough to take care of another creature. The best I can manage is feeding ants. Aw! Aw!
Aw! Aw! Yes! I would love to share your life of glamour and fame.
I like goldfish. What? Aw! Aw! Heck yeah, dawg. We can kick it together.
Yuck! There is nothing worse that a sniveling, drooling, hairy servant who cannot follow orders. Hello there... do you mind if I buy you a small island? Normally I don't let people touch me if they're not wearing an expensive coat. But for you'll I'll make an exception. Normally I don't let people kiss me if they're not wearing fruity lip gloss. But for you'll I'll make an exception. Get away from me, you pest! I'd sooner kiss a sneezing dog You betcha!
Det. Dan D. Mann
When people don't clean up after their pets, who do you think has to do it for them? Huh? I'm asking you because I don't know the answer. Aw! Aw! It's an interesting proposition. Hm... Consider it done!
Every time I buy a pet, I get so busy I forget to feed it. And then... well... I shouldn't own any pets. Aw! Aw! An excellent plan! Your place is much closer to where I work!
Don't remind me! My landlord doesn't allow pets, so when I moved here I was forced to sell my ferret. Aw! Aw! You want me to move in with you? After all I've done? Wow. You're great.
I owned a crow a few years ago. He made enough noise to scare ghosts away. I miss that old bird. Aw! Aw!
I'm definitely a cat person. And a dog person. And a chicken person too. I'm really a pet person. Stop it this instant. I know you're just trying to fool with an old woman's mind. Aw! Aw! Ack! Help! Help! Police! This boy is trying to inhale me! What a grand idea. Your house will be a great place to hold meetings.
I used to own a small python and a small dog. Now I just own a bigger python. Aw! Aw!
Some of the dialogue is from a scrapped interaction, likely about pets. There is dialogue for when a character accepts the player's kiss or hug in the string table, but characters say nothing when they are actually hugged or kissed. Additionally, all characters have dialogue for flirting and accepting a kiss, no matter if they can be flirted with or not. Similarly, characters who cannot be the player's roommate still have dialogue for accepting being the player's roommate.
This place is awesome! This place is a dump... how do you live here?
Unused dialogue for when a character is invited to the player's house.
Want to move in with me? I don't think we should be roommates anymore. Move out.
Leftovers from the previous game's social system.

Rep Group Dialogue
Hey, @1. Check yourself before you wreck your Rep. The Streeties are getting sick of you hanging around. Sorry to be the one to break this to you, @1, but the rest of the Richies think you're getting a tad uppity. Clean up your act or we'll boot you. Our patience with your gradual assimilation into our social sphere is waning. Progress or be excommunicated from the Nerdies. A few words of advice @1. Shape up or ship out of our group. End of story.
These seem to be special dialogue when the player has obtained a negative relationship with their rep group.
Hey, have you heard the recent news? A local TV station is filming a new Reality Television Show. Interesting, but I don't watch much TV. Me neither, but don't let that stop you from going up to Paradise Island and signing up. If you do well I could write a big article about you. Are they still letting people sign up? I think so. Head up to Paradise Island and see for yourself. And if you do well Id love to write an article on you.
This is grouped with Lincoln Broadsheet's mission dialogue.
