This goal arc was part of the January Weekend Event from January 15th until January 31, 2018.
The arc will only remain available after that time if you've unlocked the first goal, All Wet.

When you get to Paris to try and get access to Vivian Vandermeer's fashion show in order to get back The Golden Monkey of Papeete, you find Michigan Smith already waiting for you.

He urges you to stop what you're doing. When you brush him off, he gets even more upset.

During the conversation, you can either decide to tell him you're going backstage for Star2 or say you'll figure something out. The rest of the goal will be a little different depending on which option you choose.

If you choose to sneak backstage, you'll meet fashion designer Nina Westley, who is very surprised to find you there, but is excited to work with you. This will unlock the goal Treasured Runway.

If you choose to figure something else out, Michigan will again try to make you reconsider, but when you don't budge, he'll tell you not to sneak in and bid on the monkey. Confusingly, he'll give you Cash500. This will unlock the goal Down, But Not Out!


Michigan Smith YourName. You... you can't be seen here.
You Speech Too bad.
Michigan Smith YourName, please. I know... I know you're upset with me but...
You Speech Bye.
Michigan Smith Okay stop! I mean it! You have to get out of here, I can't let Vivian see you and you're CERTAINLY not getting into this fashion show!
You Speech 1 I'm going backstage. Star2
Speech 2 I'll figure something out.
Michigan Smith 1 No, don't! I won't let you!
2 I don't understand why you... care so much. Listen. Please. Just listen to me this one time, do NOT come back here for the fashion show tonight, okay? You lost. The treasure is going to be sold off the highest bidder and there's... There's just nothing we can do about it.
You Speech 1 (Push past him.)
Speech 2 We'll see about that.
Michigan Smith 1 YourName! I'm serious! Stay out of this!
2 Well. There's obviously nothing I can do to convince you... Don't go, and CERTANLY don't bid on the Golden Monkey using this...
You Speech 1 End of dialogue.
Speech 2 What the...? Cash+500

Nina Westley You're here early!
You Speech I am?
Nina Westley Yes, the show isn't until later! They told me I'd be impressed with the model, but I never thought we'd get THE YourName! It's great to meet you.
You Speech You too.
Nina Westley Here's what I'm thinking - I'll grab all your measurements now, just to make sure everything fits perfectly. You can come back tonight and walk the show, okay?
You Speech That would be perfect.
Nina Westley Wonderful. Perfect. I can't wait! You're going to put this show on the map, YourName.
You Speech Oh boy...
