"Oh, Starlight! I can't put a trick that's not working into my act!"
"How come it's not working?"
"...you're just yelling 'teacup!'..."
"...and not picturing it in your mind."
"Oh. Yeah, that could be it."
"What does your teacup look like? What shape is it? What color?"
"Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo! I did it, I did it, I did it! Woo-hoo-hoo!"
You're getting carried away, Trixie!
"You know what you need? A teacup!"
"I guess I pictured a teacup poodle? Heh."
"You ruined my teacakes!"
"This is the first time I did a transfiguration spell!"
"Come on! Be impressed by me!"
"You're so great at magic and having good hair!"
"But I was baking these to give to Twilight and the girls for their friendship retreat."
"Pinkie Pie gave me a recipe and everything."
"Oh! You need some snacks to give to Twilight?"
Whoa. Starlight, calm down.
"I am so excited for this friendship retreat!"
"I can't remember the last time we all got to hang out without having to save Equestria."
"But technically, we weren't the last ponies to save Equestria."
"I was speaking in a broader sense."
"Are you sure you don't want to come with us?"
"Yeah, I have three new comics to get through."
"And I promised Trixie we'd practice more magic."
"It might be better if the castle was empty, if you know what I mean."
"...Starlight will just go back in time and fix it!"
Trixie, that's not a good idea.
"We'll take good care of the castle while you're gone."
"Have fun on your friendship retreat!"
"What in Equestria is a friendship retreat, anyway?"
"They're gonna bond, share laughs..."
"We are gonna have so much more fun than them!"
"Starlight has something for you!"
"Here, I, um, brought you snacks..."
"Oh, how... thoughtful, thanks."
"We will... not get hungry on the train."
"It was supposed to be teacakes, but..."
"...what kinds of spells did you want to work on next?"
"...every self-respecting magician..."
"...has a disappearing act..."
"...so maybe we could start with that?"
"Hmmm. Nothing just disappears..."
"...so that's technically a teleportation spell, and those are pretty hard."
"Maybe we should start with something smaller."
"The Great and Powerful Trrrrrixie..."
"...goes big or not at all!"
"Just tell me how you do it."
"Well, I've always found magic is tied to my emotions."
"Whatever I'm feeling fuels whatever I'm doing..."
"...and the stronger I'm feeling, the stronger the magic."
"Like when you were so upset that cutie marks took away your friend..."
"...your magic was strong enough..."
"...to enslave an entire village."
Trixie, you don't wanna push Starlight any further than that.
"Thanks for bringing that up."
"See? I'm already learning."
"If anypony is gonna teach me how to do a disappearing spell—"
"We can do this, 'cause we're amazing, and magic is friendship and stuff." (Oh, the puns.)
"I guess we can give it a whirl."
"Now, we just need to find you something to teleport."
"Uh, let's pick something, I don't know, not living?"
"I mean it won't be as impressive, but okay."
"Teach away, mini-Twilight."
Starlight is thinking what we're all thinking.
"Welcome to Manehatten Escapes."
"Ooh, I'm going to start with a facial..."
"...and then get my hooves done, and..."
"Oh, it's not that kind of retreat."
"Isn't it called "Manehattan Escapes" ..."
"...because it's a deluxe spa where you can escape all of your troubles?"
"Nope! It's because we get locked in a room..."
"...and we have to solve puzzles and riddles in order to escape!"
This is where the games begin!
"The clues will lead you to a key to get out."
"Come on, girls. This could be fun."
"Could be? Some of the brightest minds in Equestria put together these puzzles!"
"I'm just happy to be with all of you."
"I'm not great at solving riddles..."
"...but I'm super great at cheering other ponies on while they do it!"
Pinkie sure does have team spirit!
"Exactly how long will we be locked in here?"
"A group of griffons set the record for the fastest escape."
"It only took them an hour."
"Griffons barely like each other!"
"We're basically the poster ponies for amazing friendships!"
"So get your quill ready, bub!"
"You're gonna have to write down a new record!"
"If you master this spell before the girls get back..."
"...you'd be setting some kind of record!"
"Okay. What you want to do is concentrate on the object that you want to teleport..."
"...all the way over here."
"Concentrate on teleporting. Got it."
"No, Trix, wait, not just—"
Guess that means no more friendship missions!
My thoughts exactly, Starlight.
"You made Twilight's friendship map disappear!"
"Well, it was behind the apple. It was bound to happen."
"On the plus side, my magic is getting better!"
"I made a whole table go poof! That was pretty impressive!"
"Trixie, we have to get that map back."
"We'll find it. No big deal." (Um, yes, it is a big deal!)
"Twilight's never gonna trust me to be alone in this castle again!"
"What were you thinking?!"
"Teleport, like you told me to."
"No! You're supposed to concentrate on the object..."
"...not just teleporting!"
"Well, gee, you probably should have told me all the steps before you let me do the spell."
Yeah. You might wanna do something about that.
That is a lot of teacups.
"I will be once I cast a spell to contain my anger in this bottle."
"Do you see this storm cloud?"
"This has never happened before!"
"All this magical energy has to go somewhere..."
"and if I'm not using it to fight a magical duel..."
"...or bend my friends' wills to obey my every command..."
"...I don't know what my magic's going to do."
"So I'm hoping if I bottle up my anger..."
"...I won't do who-knows-what to Trixie."
"Are you sure that's a good idea?"
"What choice do I have? I've got to get that map back..."
"...and I don't wanna lose Trixie."
"If she knew what I was thinking right now, she'd probably never talk to me again."
"Okay... You do what you need to do. I'll see if I can find the map somewhere in the castle."
"For a minute, I didn't think you were coming back, and that you might be upset with me for some weird reason."
"But then I remembered – you never get mad at me."
That bottle is gonna explode at any moment.
"So, the map is probably in the last place you were thinking of. Where was that?"
"Ooh, great question. I wish you'd asked it, like, right after I did the spell."
"I don't remember anymore."
"We'll just take a walk around town. Maybe that'll jog your memory."
"Nope! But I did think we could stop for cinnamon nuts while we're out!"
"Yes! I've been craving something sweet..."
"...since I couldn't have any teacakes this morning."
"You got this, Starlight..."
"I barely even know you!"
"I don't understand why you're so mad at me!"
"You lost Twilight's map table. You make jokes like it's no big deal."
"It's like you don't even care you could get me in a lot of trouble."
"If we can't find that table, Twilight's never going to trust me again..."
"...and the worst part is..."
"I had no idea you felt that way."
"...I don't know how you could have known."
"I did a spell and bottled up my anger..."
"...but when the bottle broke, it infected these three."
"I used magic so I wouldn't use magic."
"I should have guessed that would backfire."
"Not gonna lie. Hearing you and those random ponies say all those terrible things about me..."
"But I needed to hear it."
"Why didn't you just tell me how you felt?"
"I didn't want to lose you as a friend."
"It'd take a lot more than that to lose me."
"Our friendship is stronger than a few angry words."
"And a magical temper tantrum?"
"Listen, I'd take that over the boring pony you were becoming any day."
"The Starlight I love is passionate, lively..."
"...and yeah, sometimes angry."
"Those are my favorite parts of you."
"That and the fact that you forgive me every time."
"I'll forgive you if you forgive me."
"I remembered what I was thinking about!"
