Applejack running towards a tree.
Can't help being awesome.
Twilight and Spike, staring at Applejack with curiosity.
Applejack greets Twilight Sparkle.
Why howdy there.
I'm sure you'll love Ponyville.
Soup's on everypony!'
Let Applejack introduce you to her Apple Family.
It's Culture Shock Time!
YOU MUST EAT IT!
Hold there nelly.
Trying to stop Rainbow Dash from pursuing Nightmare Moon.
The entrance to the Everfree Forest.
"no can do sugarcube"
"we're sticking to like caramel on a candy apple."
Applejack not enjoying Rainbow Dash's antics
Quick, grab a random plant!
I'll save ya Twilight, hold on!
NN-Nope! Applejack is not crazy Twi. She's true.
Applejack is truly telling the truth
Applejack tries to deal with the manticore using her rodeo skills. "Yee haw!"
"Get along, little doggie."
The manticore bucks Applejack off.
"All yours, partner..."
Oh wait, I think I stepped in something.
Applejack apparently doesn't enjoy getting wet.
"That's what all the fuss is about?"
"Why, of course it is."
"How can you be so insensitive?"
"Come on, Twilight. Isn't this what you've been waitin' for?"
"What in the hay is that supposed to mean?"
"Come on now, y'all. She needs to concentrate."
"Twilight, where are you?"
Applejack's honest smile.
Applejack, the Element of Honesty
Going back to the farm after bucking some trees
Yay! Tickets to the gala!
This party just got crashed.
"What were you doing, spying."
Wanna bite Twilight?
Seriously Rainbow Dash?
"Boy howdy! I got my work cut out for me. That there is the biggest bumper crop of apples I ever laid eyes on."
Big Mac doubts his sister's ability to handle it by herself.
She accidentally prods him in his bandaged area.
Applejack: "Are you sayin' my mouth is makin' promises my legs can't keep?"
"Why of all the... This is your sister Applejack, remember? The loyalest of friends and the most dependable of ponies?"
"That's still only one pony, and one pony plus hundreds of apple trees just doesn't add up."
"Don't you use your fancy mathematics to muddle up the issue! I said I could handle this harvest and I'm gonna prove it to you!"
"I'm gonna get every last apple out of those trees this applebuck season all by myself."
Looks, like she's having second thoughts already.
She is about to begin work, but suddenly, the ground starts shaking.
It's like the famous story of Sir Isaac Newton and the apple, except the thundering footsteps of a stampeding herd makes the apple fall.
As the Ponyville population panics, the Mane 6 and the mayor spot Applejack and Winona in the midst of the herd.
Animation error - Applejack without her freckles.
"Come on, little doggies! Turn!"
She leaps onto a cow's back and lassoes the cow who is leading the herd.
"Whoaaa. Hooie. Now what was that all about?"
The cows explain what happened, and Applejack says she understands.
"Just next time, try and steer clear of Ponyville."
The citizens cheer.
The award ceremonyEdit
Applejack comes late to the ceremony and haphazardly knocks Mayor Mare aside.
"Thank you kindly for this here... award thingy."
"It's so bright and shiny..."
She starts making faces at her reflection: "Wooo, wooo, wooo!"
Pinkie Pie joins in.
AJ acknowledges Twilight Sparkle's gratitude and starts to doze off.
The heroine leaves with her trophy. Her friends agree that she seems a little off.
She continues to buck trees, even in her exhausted state.
Twilight is concerned and visits AJ, who explains what Applebuck Season is and why she's doing it herself.
Delirious, AJ asks Twilight to step aside even though she just did.
Twilight offers help and AJ indignantly asks, "Is that a challenge?"
Rainbow Dash's stuntEdit
AJ shows up for an appointment with Rainbow Dash.
"I'm a might' sorry, Rainbow. I was busy applebuckin' and I guess ah, I closed my eyes for a second and, when I woke up, I was late."
"Isn't that a might' dangerous?"
"Not for a pony who can fly!"
Take one: AJ on the platform that she must jump down from.
She misses the target.
Take two: the same thing happens.
Rainbow Dash exclaims, "Applejack, what the hay is going on? I mean, I thought I was working with Ponyville's best athlete!"
"I'm okay. Really. I-I have an idea. Watch this."
Applejack steps on the other end of the seesaw. It doesn't do anything; she abruptly gets off and Rainbow Dash crashes to the ground, dazing her.
The camera zooms on her face as she prepares for one last attempt.
"...Here I go!"
She takes a running jump as Dash shouts, "Wait!"
Pinkie Pie's cupcakesEdit
Applejack hits her head on a tree branch.
This is what happens when you go Apple Buckin' for too long.
After Twilight's failed attempt to communicate with AJ, she goes to Sugarcube Corner to help Pinkie Pie.
Pinkie: "I have Ponyville's prized pony to help me out. Why, she's the best baker ever. Right, Applejack?"
AJ reassures Mr. and Mrs. Cake that she can "bake anything from fritters to pies in the blink of an eye".
Pinkie: "Stop with the shakin', it's time to get bakin'!"
Pinkie asks her to get some chocolate chips.
"Eh, uh, whuh, what was that?"
Pinkie repeats her request and Applejack vaguely hears her.
"Chips... got it!"
Pinkie instructs her to add a cup of flour, and AJ hears "a cup of sour".
The next ingredient is "wheat germ", and AJ interprets that as "wheat worms", aka earthworms.
She digs for some worms outside.
Pinkie, who is too busy looking at the cookbook, says the cupcakes will be delicious.
"Yeah! Muffin spectacles! Get 'em while they're hot."
AJ once more refuses Twilight's assistance.
"AJ, I think you're beating a dead... tree."
"Ugh. No, no, NO! How many times do I gotta say it? I don't need no help from nopony!"
Fluttershy's rabbit roundupEdit
Fluttershy says that they have to count all the new bunny families. Applejack irritably says, "Fine. Can we just get on with it?"
Fluttershy reminds AJ to be gentle with the timid bunnies.
"I do not need any directions on corralling critters!"
"That's right! Let's go, bunnies!"
"Into the center! Hop to it!"
The frightened rabbits run away and Applejack chases them.
"We know what we're doin'! Get along, little bunnies!"
The bunnies, herded into a corner, freak out and stampede Ponyville.
Accepting her friends' helpEdit
"Must [gasp] keep [gasp] buckin'... just [gasp] a few [gasp] more. Must finish harvestin'."
She bucks the last apples off a tree and declares that she's done.
Big Mac points out a huge expanse of apple-laden trees.
She passes out.
Twilight:"Now Applejack, I completely respect the Apple family ways. You're always there to help any pony in need, so maybe you can put a little of your stubborn pride aside and allow your friends to help you."
Applejack considers the truth of her words.
"Yes, Twilight. Yes, please. I could really use your help."
AJ serves juice to her friends, who are working in the fields.
"Girls, I can't thank you enough for this help."
She apologizes for being stubborn.
"Now, I know the town gave me the Prized Pony award, but the real award is having you five as my friends."
The friends cringe when Spike reveals that he salvaged the bad cupcakes from the trash.
What in the hay?
Zap apples changing their nature?
Water can wash it off.
hold a bouquet.
I mean, boo, magic, schmagic.
Applejack demonstrating her lasso skills.
"Top THAT, missy!"
Applejack still charmed by the rope.
All together now: "Huh?"
That is one heavy bag since Big McIntosh
can barely pick it up.
Ponies vs The World
Just too cute. :)
Applejack is the first to jump down to Fluttershy after she falls mid-flight.
That can't be good for her.
Waste of food.
I'm not dragging her again.
Applejack reminding Rarity of her duty
Ohhh, Rarity's so gonna get bucked...
Applejack "that's much better (sort of)"
Sputter sputter sput sput spat
GAH! What the hay am I reading?
I love how you can see their eyes and silhouettes at the same time.
Their facial expressions are priceless! I'm glad someone captured it.
Rarity and Applejack: *notice notice notice*
How is that even possible?
"Hey, I don't have to eat apples all the time. Dog biscuits are just as great." Yes, she actually said this!
"Mmm. Dog biscuits. Not as good as apples, though, but I like the frosted biscuits best." Yes, she actually said this too!
"I dare you not to comb you mane 100 times before bed."
"And I dare you to comb yours just once."
Buck Buck Buck
AJ and Rarity are still at it.
The reaction to Twilight's proposal about another night.
Applejack insists that her little sister was scared of Zecora.
"So I swept her up and brought her here."
AJ is terrified by Pinkie Pie's vivid song.
"The Everfree Forest just ain't natural!"
"That's just it, she lives in... the Everfree Forest!"
"The clouds move... all on their own!"
"I hate to say I told ya so, Twilight, but I told ya so!"
"It's a curse, I tells ya!"
"Good gravy, girl!"
"What's the matter with you?"
Spike calls her "Apple Teeny".
"I agree with Dash! We'll go to Zecora's and force her to remove this hex!"
"Now where does she think she's goin' this time?"
Apple Bloom: "Sorry, little sister!" No pun intended!
Applejack in Rainbow Dash's mouth.
Applejack riding Rainbow Dash.
"What in the hay does that mean?"
"It means this plant does not breed wrath. Instead this plant just wants a laugh."
Applejack in a bucket at the end of the episode.
Applejack minus her hat, courtesy of the Parasprites.
Bring it, parasprites!
"Didn't see that coming."
What was that sound?
Parade? Oh, yes! The parade!
The friends return to the ruined Ponyville.
Applejack is one of the three leaders.
Assembling the Plant Team.
We can't grow in this cold.
Applejack overseeing the farmers during the Winter Wrap Up.
Farming apples, carrots, celery stalks and flowers.
Twilight really wants to help, but Applejack has her reservations.
"Well, I never turn down a hard worker but..."
Applejack feeling guilty that she made Twilight cry.
"Rainbow Dash, y'all on the weather team need to melt the rest of the snow here on the ground and the trees, pronto."
"I'm tellin' ya, Rainbow, you gotta melt that snow now."
*facehoof* Darn it, Caramel...
Twilight Applejack brohoof.
Cheering after Mayor Mare announces the timely completion of Winter Wrap Up.
Laughing when they see Spike napping on a melting block of ice.
Applejack reassures Apple Bloom, saying, "Don't get your mane in a tangle. You'll get your cutie mark. Every pony gets one eventually."
Applejack putting apples into a basket.
Apple Bloom approaches her sister for help.
"I knew my future was to run Sweet Apple Acres, and these bright shiny apples sealed the deal."
"Y'know, I was the last pony in my class to get my cutie mark, and I couldn't be prouder of it."
Apple Bloom: "It probably means that being the last one in your class to get a cutie mark runs in the family."
AJ listens to her sister get excited about the possibility that her cutie mark will be apple-related as well.
At the apple stand, Apple Bloom spots the first prospective "customer".
Time Turner hurriedly tosses Applejack some bits before running away from the apple stand.
"You forgot your change!"
Frowning at her little sister.
Apple Bloom then scares away "Berry Punch".
AJ catches her sister piling apples into an unsuspecting Sweetie Drops's bag and demanding payment. AJ stuffs her hoof into Apple Bloom's mouth to quiet her.
Applejack apologizes to Sweetie Drops, telling her to take the apples for free.
Applejack reaches for an additional basket of apples to give to Sweetie Drops for free.
This is the last straw for AJ.
She decides to take Apple Bloom's apron away.
"Listen sugar-cube, I know it's hard to wait for your very own cutie mark, but you just can't force it. Besides, you're not that grown-up just yet."
Apple Bloom tells her that Twist doesn't have her cutie mark either. AJ asks, "Do you think you'd feel better if you went to the party with her?"
"Well, there you go. Bet you and Twist would have a great time together. Now run along and find your friend."
Later, at the cute-ceañera, AJ cuts short Apple Bloom's attempt to sneak out.
"I sure am glad you came to your senses about this whole cutie mark thing. These things happen when these things are supposed to happen. Trying to rush 'em just drives you crazy."
Setting up the barrel lead course
Applejack, next time try not to nudge the barrel.
