His job is difficult, since he has to keep up with the maintenance of every single tool he has. It's even more difficult to work on a ship, since there's a chance the sharks can get your catch. Denny's even had to fight off sharks a few times! Ask him if that's true (えー、本当に・・・?) and he'll assure you it is.

Rival Events[edit]

Event 1: Fisherman and Idol[edit]

  • Japanese: (漁師とアイドル)
  • To Trigger: Enter the diner in the evening, when both Lanna and Denny are there. You must have a decent friendship (1~2+ FP) with one of them (the one who is not available to your character). The one available to you must not be above a purple heart.
  • Description: Denny strikes up a conversation with the pretty girl sitting across the table from him. He comments that Lanna used to be an idol. Lanna says that yes, she is one, she's just taking a break right now. Then Denny asks her, isn't fishing her hobby? Lanna immediately takes offense, asking Denny if he thinks it's improper for an idol to like to fish. She hates it when people tell her that! Denny didn't mean it that way. Since he is busy fishing all the time, he has no idea what an idol should or should not do. Denny thinks an idol who is also good at fishing would be very popular! Lanna is very happy that he said that, and gives him a very special autograph! Denny says he'll hang it up in his house for all to see.

Event 2: Broken Fishing Rod[edit]

  • Japanese: (壊れた釣竿)
  • To Trigger: Enter Lanna's house late at night or some other time when she's inside. Year 2 or beyond. This is a very random event and may take a long time to trigger. You must have a decent friendship (2~3+ FP) with one of them (the one who is not available to your character). The one available to you must not be above a blue heart.
  • Description: Lanna has broken one of her favorite fishing rods, and Danny has come to her house to take a look at it. Lanna asks him if he can fix it. Denny says that of course he can: he has all sorts of tools to fix fishing equipment! However, he tells her that for the most part, she should be able to fix things herself. Lily gets angry and tells him that she knows how to fix fishing rods. This was the only time she couldn't! Denny tells her to calm down; he was just teasing her. Besides, when she's mad, it spoils her pretty face. Lanna giggles. This again? Denny says that all the time. Denny finally finishes fixing the fishing rod, and asks her to test it out. Lanna says she can already tell that it's fixed. Besides, she knows that if Denny fixed it, she won't have to worry about it working correctly or not. Now she can fish again, whereas she couldn't as long as her fishing rod was broken... For some reason Lanna takes offense at that, and says that wasn't the case! She has other rods, too. Confused, Denny asks her what happened to the girl who came to him crying, begging him to fix her fishing rod...?

Event 3: Waiting in Vain[edit]

  • Japanese: (待ちぼうけ)
  • To Trigger: Enter the diner at a time when both Lanna and Denny are inside. Year 3 or beyond. Once again, this is a very random event that may take a while to trigger. You must have a decent friendship (3~5+ FP) with one of them (the one who is not available to your character). The one available to you must not be above a green or yellow heart. If you're already married, then the heart level doesn't matter.
  • Description: As soon as you enter, Lanna comes up to you and demands that you hear her out! Denny is so mean! He promised to go fishing with her, and stood her up! But Danny insists that she's the one who stood him up. Lanna turns to him and tells him that she was waiting by the well, just as they'd agreed. He's a liar! Denny, furious, tells her that she the liar. He was waiting by the well! Oh, sure, Lanna says, he'll say he was waiting there once he's been exposed as the real liar! Just ask the old man at the diner who took out the trash: he'll say that he saw Lanna waiting by the well!!
    Denny comes to a realization. He asks Lanna if she was waiting by the well in front of the diner. Of course she was! When Denny invited her to go fishing, and told her to meet him at the well, that wasn't the well that he was talking about. He meant that they'd meet at the well in back of Chen's store... and that's where he was waiting. Again, she's not sure if he's telling the truth or not, but Denny says he is. She went to the wrong well! Lanna apologizes and says she misunderstood. Denny asks her to apologize to you, too, and Lanna says she's sorry for getting you wrapped up in this. She then asks Denny if he's angry with her? Denny thinks a moment then says no, he's not mad anymore, even though Lanna is such a troublesome person! Lanna giggles and says she'll make sure she knows exactly where to meet next time.

Event 4: Denny's Resolution[edit]

  • Japanese: (ダニーの決心)
  • To Trigger: Enter the beach during the early afternoon. As with most of their events, this event is very random and could take a while to trigger. You must be in Year 4 or beyond. You must have a decent friendship (5~7+ FP) with one of them (the one who is not available to your character). The one available to you must not be above an orange heart. If you're already married, then the heart level doesn't matter.
  • Description: Lanna is standing by the water's edge, and Denny walks up and asks her how she's doing. Lanna says she's doing great! She recently caught a fish that was really, really big, and wanted to show it to Denny, but couldn't. Denny says he wishes he could have seen it, too. Lanna realizes that he doesn't believe that she actually caught a fish that large, and Denny tells her she's right. He doesn't believe her! Naturally, Lanna gets angry, but Denny tells her that they should go fishing again soon. That way, if she catches another huge one, he'll be able to see it. Lanna agrees, and says she'll shock him by catching a fish bigger than any he's ever seen before! Denny suddenly turns away, blushing, and mumbles that he's the one who has a big surprise. (He's going to propose to her.) Lanna asks him what he's talking about, and he quickly says that he won't let her beat him! Lanna says he's wrong, she will beat him, then realizes she has to go. Once she's gone, Denny offers a quiet prayer to the fishing god, asking him for the courage to carry out what he wants to do...
    Denny must propose to her right after the event takes place, because about a week after you see this event (depending on festivals and the weather), Danny and Lanna will be married.

After Marriage Event 1: Lanna's Accident?[edit]

  • Japanese: (リリーの異変?)
  • To Trigger: A season after Denny and Lanna's wedding, enter Lanna's house in the early morning or some other time when she's there. Denny isn't required to be there, though.
  • Description: Denny has called Dr. Trent to come and take a look at Lanna. She hasn't been well lately, and she and Denny have no idea what's going on. The doctor tells them that she isn't sick, she's pregnant! Lanna and Denny are both very happy. Lanna has always wanted a child of her own! Dr. Trent suggests that when it comes near the time for Lanna to give birth, she ought to go to the hospital in the city, where she can get proper medical attention, should the need arise. They agree to that, and the doctor promises to come and take Lily to the city when her times draws close.

After Marriage Event 2: See You Later, Lanna[edit]

  • Japanese: (いってらっしゃいリリー)
  • To Trigger: Happens automatically two seasons after you get the "Lanna's Accident?" event.
  • Description: Denny drops by your house to tell you that Lanna is leaving for the hospital in town today. She's due to have the baby any day now. You go down to the beach with him, where Dr. Trent, Lanna, Chen, and Charlie are already waiting. Chen tells her that though the birthing might be difficult, she should do her best. Charlie says he'll play with the baby once they get back! Lanna thanks them both, and then tells Denny that she'll be back soon. Denny tells her to do her best and assures her he'll be eagerly awaiting her return. Lanna thanks everyone for coming to see her off, and then she and the doctor board the boat. Denny then decides that he wants to go with her, too! Charlie thinks that's a good idea, since Lanna didn't seem as happy as usual. Chen too tells him to go, so Danny promises to be back soon and then gets on the boat.
    After this event, you won't be able to talk to either Denny or Lanna for a little while.

After Marriage Event 3: Welcome Back, Denny & Lanna![edit]

  • Japanese: (おかえりダニー&リリー)
  • To Trigger: Happens automatically one season after Denny and Lanna leave.
  • Description: Denny comes to your house to inform you that he and Lanna are back. Lanna gave birth to a healthy baby, and now Lanna's strength has returned, so they're back home. He wants you to come and meet his new family sometime! After this event, their daughter, Ruku, will always be in Lanna's house, in the room on the left. Unfortunately, if neither of her parents are at home, Ruku will be locked in the house, so on most days, you can talk to her only in the morning or late at night. Ruku takes after her mother, although she thinks it's bizarre that Lanna makes her call her "Li-chan" instead of "Mommy," and she's also disappointed that her parents never let her go fishing with them!
