Heart Events

Black Heart Event

Enter Mineral Clinic after 9 AM when Elli is at a black heart or higher.[5]

Stu is teasing Elli with a bug, knowing that she hates them. When you walk into the Clinic, Stu will hide behind you. Elli is still angry with Stu even though Stu will say he does not understand why she is upset. If you answer with "not really", it will make Elli happy. Stu will be upset, but he will get over it.

Purple Heart Event

Enter Mineral Clinic on Thursday, Saturday, or Sunday between 9 AM and 7 PM.[6] Elli at a purple heart or higher and you have seen her black heart event.

As Jeff walks into the clinic feeling ill, the Doctor will see Jeff and ask Elli to bring some medicine for him. However, Elli accidentally brings Doctor the wrong medicine. He is very upset at his mistake, even if Jeff still starts to feel a little bit better. If you assure Elli that she is doing a good job, she will feel a little better and not forget today's experience.

Blue Heart Event

Enter Ellen's house between 9 AM and 1 PM on a sunny Wednesday.[7] Elli at a blue heart or higher and you have seen her black and purple heart events. Additionally, you must own the largest version of the rucksack and have an empty slot available.

Elli has made some food for Stu, but Stu does not appreciate it and runs away. Elli is very upset by this, and Ellen certainly can't go and look for Stu. Ellen will ask you to go find Stu, and if you tell them that you will find him, Ellen tells you that Stu probably went to the church. As you find Stu, he didn't realize how upset he is with Elli and returns home. Elli will give you a gift because of that.

Yellow Heart Event

Go to the beach on a sunny Wednesday between 9 AM and 6 PM.[8] Elli has a yellow heart or higher and you have seen her previous heart events.

While thinking about her past with her family, Elli wonders if her mother would be proud of the way that she has been raising Stu. Tell Elli that she did so to make her happy.

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.

Black Rival Heart Event

Visit Mineral Clinic on any day of the week (except Tuesday or Wednesday) during regular clinic hours.[9] You will see the first phase of the doctor's rival event.

While Elli is feeling tired for all of the work she does at the hospital, the Doctor will tell her not to overwork herself. After all, he worries about her and needs her to help run the Clinic. Elli is a little disappointed that Doctor only sees her as a nurse, as he does not seem to understand that Elli may have feelings for him.

Blue Rival Heart Event

Enter Ellen's house on Monday between 9 AM and 7 PM once you have seen Doctor and Elli's black rival event.[10]

Noticing that Ellen isn't feeling well, Doctor has stopped by to see her, determining that she probably has a cold and needs some rest. Doctor knows that she is constantly in pain, but seeing how powerless he is to help her, it frustrates him. Ellen and Elli insist that Doctor is doing the best that he can which makes him feel a little better.

Green Rival Heart Event

In Year 2 or later, enter Mineral Clinic on any day except Tuesday and Wednesday between 9 AM and 3 PM.[11] You have seen Doctor and Elli's black and blue rival events previously.

While Doctor is sick, Elli suggests that Doctor takes a day off, but he is stubborn and refuses. Elli tells him not to overdo it; if not, she will be upset with him. Doctor laughs and comments that Elli would make a good wife someday.

Orange Rival Heart Event

In Year 4 or later, go to Mineral Beach between 7 PM and 10 PM on a sunny Wednesday once you have seen Doctor and Elli's previous rival events.[12]

As Doctor approaches Elli on the beach, she asks why he comes here. Doctor nervously mumbles about her grandmother at first, but admits that he loves Elli. Flattered, Doctor continues to explain why he wants her by his side.

Elli and Doctor will get married 7 days after this event.

Your Child[13]

One season after you and Elli are married, Elli will feel unwell in the morning. The duo will go to the clinic with the Doctor announcing that she is pregnant. 60 days later, Elli will give birth to a baby. For the first 60 days, the baby will be sleeping in the bed and you cannot interact with them. After another 60 days, your baby will grow into a toddler and from now on, can talk and give gifts to them.

Other Events

Stu is Sick

Enter Ellen's home between 11 AM and 1 PM on Wednesday.[14]

Seeing Stu having a fever, Elli suggests that they go to see Doctor. Stu is reluctant to go, but agrees to it. Elli is going to find Doctor and asks that you bring Stu to the clinic for her. When Elli finds Doctor, he says that Stu is going to be fine. The event ends at 3 PM as you bring Stu back to Ellen's home.

Playtime with Stu

Enter Ellen's home between 10 AM and 5 PM on Wednesday.[15] Stu asks if you'd like to play with him and upon agreeing, the event will end at 7 PM.

Ellen's Letter

Visit Ellen's house on Wednesday between 9 AM and 1 PM.[16]

When you arrive, Elli, Ellen, and Stu ask you about your farm work and tell how hard it must be. It reminds Ellen of how Elli works, even on her day-off. Shortly afterwards, Elli remembers that she forgot to return a book to Doctor and goes to take it off of the bookshelf. Instead of a book, Elli finds a letter that was stuck between the books and is addressed to Ellen. When Ellen opens it, she finds some very kind words from her husband. He never actually gave Ellen the letter because he was too embarrassed.

Cooking for the Girls[17]

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

  • 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 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.


This event will randomly occur upon buying a big bed. Before you go to bed at night, Ann, Mary, Popuri, Karen and Elli will knock on the door and show up. 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.

Customers For Kai

Walk into Kai's Snack Shack 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. Excited, Popuri suddenly calls and walks into the restaurant, 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 are more customers outside. Kai is happy that he has customers, but 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 is 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. At the end, he thanks you for visiting his snack shack before going home.

Elli's Research

Visit the clinic between 12 PM and 7 PM after Doctor and Elli are married.[19]

While Elli is struggling at study, Doctor luckily helps her with the part that she is stuck on. After thanking Doctor for his help, the two of them notice that you have arrived. Elli says that she's reading up on possible cures for her grandmother's legs. Encouraging Elli to keep studying will increase your friendship with her, while telling her to give up and put her grandmother in a hospital instead will decrease friendship points.
