fluttershy's practicing what now? twilight: she's singing a song tonight. rainbow: fluttershy, onstage...you're kidding, right? twilight: we thought it would be a good confidence boost for her. rainbow: and what was that you said about the cmc? scootaloo: rainbow dash! rainbow: hey, hey! scootaloo! (hugs) i missed ya, kid! let's have a look at ya. wow, you've sure grown. and...is that a...
scootaloo: a cutie mark! can you believe it! applejack: (chuckles) i tried to tell ya. scootaloo got that about a week ago. rainbow: a scooter cutie mark, huh? i always knew you had slick moves on that thing. scootaloo: i know! how could i have not known that that was my super special talent? applebloom/sweetie belle: twilight! rainbow! pinkie! twilight: wow! you girls look beautiful! you've done it again, rarity! rarity: actually, you have applebloom to thank for this. i needed help at the boutique and hired her as my assistant.
she has quite the knack for fashion, did you know? applebloom: and guess what appeared yesterday? applejack: (gasps) your cutie mark! why...why didn't you tell me? i...i knew scootaloo and sweetie...i...i was worried that you... applebloom: i wanted it to be a surprise! pinkie: ooh! it's an apple! like applejack's cutie mark! but there's only one! and it's green! no, it's red! it's a green apple being painted red! sweetie belle: she redecorated the entire clubhouse! applebloom: and that's when this here appeared!
applejack: (sniffs) my little applebloom has finally blossomed. come here, you! pinkie: aw! twilight: but you said sweetie belle had her cutie mark too. sweetie belle: i do! pinkie: ooh, lookie, lookie! it's a musical note! twilight: well, you do have a lovely singing voice, sweetie. sweetie belle: i got it at the talent show! we were doing a comedy act, but no pony was laughing. scootaloo: then sweetie belle started singing, and we joined in!
sweetie belle: when every pony clapped, i realized that not only do i love singing, but i'm good at it! then, i got my cutie mark! applebloom: and we won! rainbow: (chuckles) you three sure have come a long way. twilight: we all have. spike: rarity! boy, am i glad i found you! i was wondering if you'd like to... rarity: oh, look! there's fancy pants! i'm going to say hello! spike: wait, rarity! i wanted to... oh, forget it. applejack: um, uh...ya know, spike, if...if ya wanna dance, i could always...
spike: really? you'd do that? applejack: yeah...if ya want to... spike: can you really convince rarity to dance with me? applejack: oh no, spike, i was...actually... (sighs) i'll do my best. fancy pants: i say, my dear! that ensemble you're wearing is fantastic! did you make it yourself? rarity: oh, indeed i did! i made one for each of my friends, including twilight! oh, and the princesses too, but they were called away and... applejack: rarity, i need to...
rarity: oh, fancy pants! you remember my friend applejack? fancy pants: but of course! how's the apple business? applejack: it's gettin' along fine, but...rarity, i have to... fancy pants: rarity, my dear, i must compliment on that country design! it goes so well with the hat! rarity: doesn't it? though i told her those boots would clash with... applejack: rarity! rarity: oh, i'm so sorry, applejack, what is it? applejack: look, rarity, spike really wants to dance with ya. fancy pants: spike?
rarity: my little dragon friend. fancy pants: ah, yes! princess twilight's ward, i heard! applejack: yes, yes, that's him. rarity, ya know spike likes ya and all. you really should... rarity: um...would you excuse us for a moment, fancy pants? fancy pants: of course, my dear. rarity: (giggles) (whispers harshly) don't blow this for me! applejack: huh? rarity: fancy pants just got out of his courtship with fleurs-de-lils, which makes him the most eligible
bachelor in all of canterlot! if he thinks there's something between me and spike, he'll never make me his marefriend! applejack: wait. you and fancy pants are... rarity: not really, but he's just so kind and...and charming... much more charming than that prince blueblood, that's for sure! this could be my only chance to get the stallion of my dreams! applejack: what about spike? poor boy'll be heartbroken. rarity: we're friends. i'm sure he'll understand. now, if you'll excuse me. applejack: oh, what am i gonna tell him?
rainbow: hey, aj! soarin here wants to know if... soarin: if you have any of that apple pie? applejack: (sighs) over at the dessert table. soarin: awesome! rainbow: don't eat it all at once, soarin! save some for me! (chuckles) that soarin, isn't he a crack-up? applejack: yeah... orphan: (gasps) look! it's applejack! and rainbow dash! (gasp) they're more perfect in person!
(children chatter) rainbow: wow, these orphans sure look up to you, don't they? applejack: you too, they're big fans of yours. orphan: we love you, rainbow dash! rainbow: hey, hey, hey! they have good taste! orphan: you're my hero! orphan: some day, i wanna be just like you! rainbow: the sky's the limit, kid. though, you might wanna get a pair of wings, first. twilight: have either of you seen fluttershy? it's almost time for her to go on.
applejack: she wasn't in her room? twilight: i already looked there. applejack: she's probably in the garden. you know how comfortable she feels around the critters. rainbow: i'll go get her. spike: applejack! applejack: oh, uh...spike... spike: did she say she'd dance with me? applejack: uh...well...ya see...sugar...rarity, uh...she...she... ya know? she just might save one teeny dance for you! spike: really?
applejack: if ya ask her, that is. spike: thank you, applejack! spike: i'll never forget this! applejack: anytime! applejack: oh, why can i never be honest with him? fluttershy: (singing) can...any pony...find me...s-some pony to...? (sighs) what am i doing? i can't sing! not with every pony watching me! rainbow: why not? we all know you're great! fluttershy: rainbow dash, i'm so happy to see you!
rainbow: are you sure, 'cuz, the others told me that you've been down in the dumps lately? fluttershy: well, um... rainbow: is it those nightmares? fluttershy: um... yes. i can't help it! they just won't go away. and i have a bad feeling that...that he's going to come back! fluttershy: i...i'm so scared! (cries) rainbow: hey, hey, it was just a dream! you've gotta hang loose! this is a party, after all! also, it's time for your song. fluttershy: oh, i don't really feel like singing.
rainbow: aw, don't tell me you still got stage fright! come on! don't you remember how you helped us with that tornado? fluttershy: singing is different from flying. rainbow: you were able to sing that "find a pet" song with me. fluttershy: that was when it was just you and the animals. but now there are hundreds of ponies in there, watching me! rainbow: don't worry! i'll be right here to support you. we all will. rainbow: of course, i could always drag you. fluttershy: okay. let's do this.
rainbow: yeah, come on! discord: ugh! this party's so boring! it's not as dull as last year's, i'll give 'em that. oh, i hate this disguise! how are you supposed to hold anything with these hooves? (children laughing) discord: and who invited those brats here? orphan: so you just have to stack it over there and you put it over there and then see, ta-da! it makes a castle! discord: ugh, if there's anything i hate more than ponies, it's younger ponies! discord: soooo bored! canterlot filly: mummy, i'll go get some punch, okay? canterlot mother: sure thing, honey.
oh, and get some for my friend too, okay? canterlot filly: okay, mummy. discord: hmm... ah! (snaps his tail) canterlot female: (screams) there's a hare in the punchbowl! applejack: oh for goodness... calm down, ma'am, i'll refill the... land sakes! you meant the animal? canterlot male: hare! disgusting hare! (glass breaks) applejack: get out of here, ya pesky varmint! stallion: my eye!

(crowd gasps)rarity: oh no! twilight: ha! you should have stayed in exile, discord! now that you've revealed yourself, we can turn you back to stone! discord: oh really? as i recall, you need the elements of harmony for that.
twilight: exact...applejack: uh, twilight? we're not wearing 'em. twilight: what?rarity: oh, we stopped wearing them two years ago, remember? when we thought he wasn't coming back! twilight: oh. well...we don't need the elements of harmony to teach you a lesson!

(crowd gasps) sweetie belle: he's got them locked up!twilight: and they don't have their horns! shining armor: what have you done with my wife?! discord: she's perfectly fine, i assure you. so is her foal, by the way, though it would be a shame if, uh... something were to happen to her mother before her birth. shining armor: her? discord: yes, yes, you're having a girl! congratulations! you want a gift basket? shining armor: i swear, if you hurt cadence... discord: wouldn't dream of it! but if any of you ponies try to stop me, your princesses get it!
