*Trying* to stop Rainbow Dash from pursuing Nightmare Moon.
The entrance to the Everfree Forest.
"We're sticking to you 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
Twilight letting go of Applejack.
Applejack tries to deal with the manticore using her rodeo skills: "Yee haw!"
"Get along, little doggie."
The manticore bucks Applejack off.
Oh wait, I think I stepped in something.
Applejack apparently doesn't enjoy getting wet.
"That's what all the fuss is about?"
"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
Applejack, Twilight can stay with them.
"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..."
Looks, like she's having second thoughts already.
She is about to begin work...
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.
...but suddenly, the ground starts shaking.
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.
"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."
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!"
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.
"It's what the Apple family calls harvestin' time."
Delirious, AJ asks Twilight to step aside...
...even though she just did.
"Do you... want some help?"
AJ shows up for an appointment with Rainbow Dash.
"I'm a mite 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 mite dangerous?"
"Not for a pony who can fly!"
Take one: AJ on the platform that she must jump down from.
Take two: the same thing happens.
"Applejack, what the hay is going on? I mean, I thought I was working with Ponyville's best athlete!"
"You are! 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.
She takes a running jump as Dash shouts, "Wait!"
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".
"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 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."
"How many times do I gotta say it? I don't need no help from nopony!"
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.
"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.
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."
"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.
