Just as you walk in, Ann says that she's having stomach pains. Doug asks what you should do, choose the option to take Ann to the Clinic.

Doctor tells Ann that her stomach probably hurts because of what she ate. When asked what she ate, Ann replies with a large list of food, consisting of a stir fry, omelet rice, a savory pancake, tempura noodles, cheese cake, apple pie, cake, ice cream, and pumpkin pudding. Elli tells her that she'll be fine, but not to eat so much next time! Ann will thank you, and gives you a gift as a token of her appreciation.

Ann walks in and senses that her Father is talking about her. Doug acts innocent, but Ann storms off before you are able to say anything about it.

Rival Heart Events

  • NOTE: If you raise your heart level up too much with any of the bachelorettes, you will NOT be able to see events between the rival couples. If you have a bigger heart with a bachelorette then the event you are trying to watch, you will not be able to see the event. Example: You try to see the green heart event between Ann and Cliff, but you have Ann at a red heart. Ann likes you more then Cliff, and you will not be able to see the event.

Duke doesn't see the problem, in fact, his problem is that Cliff hasn't proposed yet! Cliff is embarrassed by Duke's observation, and doesn't know what to say.

Your Child

A season after you and your spouse are married, your wife (or you, if you are playing MFoMT) will not be feeling well one morning. You will go to the clinic, and the Doctor will announce that your wife/you are pregnant.

Your wife/you will give birth in 60 days, and you will have a baby. For the first 60 days, it will be sleeping in the bed and you cannot interact with him or her, but after those 60 days, your baby will grow into a toddler, and you can talk and give gifts to him or her.[12]

In Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town, your child can only be male.

Other Events

Remembering Ann's Mother

On the 5th of Fall (on any year), go to the Inn at 10AM. [13]

Ann will tell you that Doug has taken the day off and that the Inn will be closing early. Leave the Inn and go to Mother's Hill to find Doug. He says that today is the anniversary of his wife's death, so he always takes the day off to remember her. Doug will spend most of the day at Mother's Hill.

Doug and Duke's Argument

Visit the Inn between 2PM and 4PM on a Thursday when it's raining.[14]

You'll walk into a middle of an argument between Duke and Doug. Ann is trying to get the two to stop arguing, but isn't having any luck. Ann asks for your help to try and split the two up. When you break them up, they start to laugh because now they can't remember what they were even arguing about to begin with!

Cooking for the Girls

After you've expanded your house and purchased a kitchen, try cooking anytime after 8AM. There is a chance that Ann, Popuri, Karen and Mary will stop by. [15]

Each of them have come to ask if you'll cook them something using your new kitchen. If you speak to each of the girls, they will each have a different request for what they'd like to eat[16]:

  • Karen will ask for french fries, tempura or popcorn.
  • Ann will ask for mushroom rice, a hotcake or cheese fondue.
  • Popuri will request fried rice, an omelet or or scrambled eggs.
  • Mary will ask for relax tea, veggie juice or a chocolate cake.
  • Elli will request strawberry milk, hot milk or a sandwich.
This event may happen more than once and only happens in More Friends of Mineral Town.


After buying your big bed, you'll randomly see this event. Before you go to bed at night, you'll hear a knock at the door. Ann, Mary, Popuri, Karen and Elli have all showed up at your doorstep.

The girls have heard that you purchased a big bed and want to sleep in it. With all five of them in the bed, it seems a little bit cramped and uncomfortable. The girls leave after deciding that the bed isn't big enough for all of them.

Ann's Present

In order to see this event, Ann cannot be married. Go to the Inn on the 11th of Winter between 7PM and 9PM.[17]

Inside, you'll see Doug working. Ann excitedly enters the room and tells her father that she has something for him. When she gives him a present, Doug doesn't understand why she'd be giving him a gift. Ann has to remind Doug that it's his birthday today!

He thanks Ann before going back to work.

Customers For Kai

The event starts when your character walks into Kai's restaurant between 5-7 PM.[18] Triggering the event will cause the day to end.

Kai greets you and says that he doesn't have any customers, as usual. Popuri suddenly calls and walks into the restaurant, excited, telling Kai that she brought customers for him. He's excited as he sees the first few customers come in. Popuri then says that there's more customers outside. Kai's happy that he has customers, but is worried that it's going to be too difficult to cook for them all. He asks the player to help and you agree. The scene shows you, Kai, and Popuri scrambling around the restaurant trying to serve everybody.

After all the customers have been served, your character, Kai, and Popuri are alone in his restaurant. Kai is tired after working so hard. He tells Popuri that he's grateful for the customers, but she brought too many! Popuri apologizes for overdoing it and Kai admits that he might be glad that he has such few customers. He thanks your character and you go home.

Ann's Personality

After Ann and Cliff are married, visit the Inn between 6 and 8AM. In order to get inside the Inn so early, you'll also need to be good friends with Doug. It has to be raining, and it cannot be winter.[19]

Inside, you'll see that Ann and Cliff are in the middle of an argument. Ann is upset that Cliff doesn't think that she's ladylike enough and thinks that her husband should love her for the way that she is! Cliff is quick to realize the error of his ways and apologizes.
