I know this needs a little something else, but what?
"It just needs a certain...je ne sais quois."
"Perhaps it needs... appliqués"
Concentrating hard on the outfit.
Be careful next time, Sweetie Belle.
Wait! How did she get sequins in her mouth?
Heh, guess I got a little carried away, sis.
I know how important it is.
Rarity listening to her sister.
"My most prestigious order ever."
...and her Equestria-wide tour launches...
...by day after tomorrow at the latest!
You wouldn't mind fixing my dresses, would you?
I think I need your expertise.
Not at all, Sweetie! When do you need them?
Oh, I understand, no don't worry about my sad face.
Well, if I work extra hard then maybe...
"Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! You're the best sister ever!"
My dresses are right over there!
Dang, those dresses are hideous!
She's in dread. Quick! Cue the theme song!
Ponies, entering the theater house for the play.
Girls, get in your places now!
Scootaloo, still unsure of why their outfits are late.
Scootaloo, doesn't seem comfortable with Sweetie's close up face.
"She's known about this for weeks!"
"She HAS known about this for weeks, right?"
The embarrassment of forgetting
"I kept meaning to ask her; truly I did!"
I wrote it especially for the three of us!
...doing something completely myself...
...and I really wanted to keep it that way!
We wanted everything to be perfect!
But I brought the dresses as promised, Sweetie Belle.
I'm quite certain it came out just so...
We're about to start soon!
Apple Bloom and Scootaloo seem pleased with their costumes. Sweetie Belle doesn't seem so sure.
Ponies, clapping and admiring the Crusaders' dresses.
Looking beautiful and happy in her dress.
"Forsooth and anon, I cometh forthwith..."
"and posthaste with glad tidings, miladies."
"I still have goosebumps!"
It's like a dream come true for you!
"Which do you think you'd get it for?"
Even Mr and Mrs Cake attended.
So they star in one play and suddenly they're big shots.
Is it just me or did Sweetie take those glasses from DJ Pon-3
"Aw, cheer up! The show was great!"
"I'll get you some punch."
Sweetie, fed up that nopony was actually paying attention to her play.
"But alas, without this key hidden stitch, it's just a..."
Hmm... what rhymes with "stitch"? Glitch, twitch, switch, itch, witch, which, hitch, pitch, rich, snitch, ditch, bi-- Stop right there, Rarity!
Obligatory full-cast appearance is obligatory.
"Didn't the play go all right?"
Oh my, was something wrong with the dresses?
Sweetie Belle is not amused.
"Oh, I think I'll take that break now."
"We're…just gonna abandon you to your sister's wrath now."
"Oh, what amazing dresses!"
"Oh, how I love the dresses!"
"Dresses! Dresses! Dresses! DRESSES!!!!"
"Oh, so they did like them."
"You had me worried, you silly filly."
"It's my fifth birthday party all over again!"
Wait...how old are you now?
"Admit you made those dresses too good on purpose!"
"I thought they were supposed to be good."
"Yes, good. Not jaw-dropping amazing!"
Sweetie Belle lives with Rarity now, what happened to Mom and Pop, did they just vanish along with other parents?
"Sweetie Belle, get me some red ribbon! No, that's not red, that's cherry! No, that's not red, that's cinnamon!"
"For Pete's sake, it's all red!"
"I should probably go talk to her."
"'All I care about is that amazing red ribbon!'"
Or maybe best to let her rant a while.
Trying to block it out and burning.
No good trying to sleep with anger.
Error encountered. Active systems will not cease.
If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time we hear Rarity snore.
Sweetie Belle, this isn't what Twilight taught you magic for.
Fixed! No more envy issues.
Ah! Much better! (At least for now.)
What's going on out there?
It's the 58th Annual Pony Awards for Excellence in Theatre!
Apparently, Sweetie's up against Don Draper.
...And now the moment is ruined.
Uh, what's that trophy made of for it to melt in the rain?
Rainity is best storm cloud
Well, finally! We're nearing the end of the season and a princess finally appears!
"Princess Luna! It's really you!"
"Let me see. You just rescued me from a maniacal laughing Rarity-cloud."
"Yeah, probably dreaming."
"...and with this, I have struggled."
Shouldn't Rarity be a teenager if Sweetie Belle's a kindergartener?
"This was my fifth birthday party."
Aww, Sweetie Belle is so cute!
"I decided to make a grand entrance."
"Finally, I was perfect and then went to the stairs to enter like the belle of the ball."
"When I finally came out of my room, I found the party..."
"...going on without me."
"And I kept posing at the top of stairs, waiting to be noticed, but all I heard was..."
"These party favors are the..."
"Awesome! Where did you get these?"
"And, of course, you'll all want cake, won't you?"
"You're the greatest, Rarity!"
"Who needs a birthday girl when you've got the birthday girl's..."
The saddest scene in this episode. :(
Sweetie Belle: "That's when I learned, never try to shine with my big sister around."
Luna: "But perhaps you didn't have the whole story."
"I thought you said you understood."
"I'm sure she'll be along at any moment."
"I'm tired of waiting."
"I say we get out of here before we all keel over from boredom."
Filly: "Poor Sweetie Belle."
"Nopony's gonna come to another one of her parties..."
"Don't go! You'll miss out on the, uh..."
"I was gonna save them till the end, but..."
"These party favors are the coolest (again)!"
"Who needs a birthday girl when you've got the birthday girl's..."
"...amazing big sister (again)?"
"Oh, no, no, no. All of these things were Sweetie Belle's idea. I just assisted with the execution."
"I guess Rarity wasn't trying to steal the spotlight. She was trying to save my party."
Princess Luna, wait for me!
"Should I hem the clocks now or wait until I'm there?"
"I could hem them now, but I might have to redo them."
"But if I wait until I'm in Canterlot to hem them, Sapphire Shores might not get the best first impression."
"Wait. This must've happened earlier tonight!"
"Ooh, Sapphire Shores is such a big star and such a stickler for details."
"What if everything's not perfect enough?"
"Funny. I thought I was the only one who got worried about stuff like that."
"Oh, buck up, Rarity! Stop this foolishness!"
"You've done your best and left nothing to chance."
Hey, who turned on the blacklight?
"I hope everything goes all right for her tomorrow."
"Go see what the future holds if you fail to rein in your worst instincts, as I once did
"And here it is! The crème de la crème..."
"The piéce de resistance..."
All that from one missing stitch?
"Looks like I made a mistake here."
"But-but this is impossible! I-I-I checked and rechecked everything! This couldn't have happened!"
"You sure about that, honey?"
"Please, you must believe me!"
Uh-oh! Things are spiraling out of control now!
In her mouth, no one can hear you scream.
She hugs her uvula! Hang on, buddy!
"I don't wanna see any more!"
"Always check and recheck!"
"Who all wants to hear a funny story about my ex-costume designer?"
How dare she!
"Check, recheck! Check, then recheck!"
"Make it stop! Princess Luna, can you hear me?!"
"Make me a dress, Rarity, please?"
"Go away! You know I don't do that any more!"
Behold, Mental Rarity. Does the name "Mental
" sound familiar, ladies and gents?
Sweetie Belle: "Wake me up, Princess Luna! Wake me up! WAKE ME UP!"
Glad that's over. What a horrible nightmare.
Her reaction to horror films.
"The box is... gone? I'm too late!"
"SHE LEFT FOR CANTERLOT!"
For those of you keeping track, this is the second time Sweetie did the "Home Alone" face. What a good icon it is.
Talk about perfect timing.
"The key is for you two to distract Rarity long enough for me to put the stitch back in without her noticing."
"If we're not too late already."
"Oh, my gosh! I can't believe we're goin' to see Sapphire Shores!"
"I'm such a huge fan! I know all her songs!"
"Ooh, that's one of my favourites!"
"This isn't a trip to see Sapphire Shores! It's a trip to save my sister from a horrible future!"
"How can you say that?! Rarity doesn't deserve that at all!"
"No, "Serves Her Right" is another one of Sapphire Shores' songs!"
"Don't you listen to her music?"
Scootaloo shares Rainbow Dash's disdain for musicals.
"Five, six, seven, eight, ba-bam!"
"Oh, bravo! Fabulous! Magnifique!"
Sweetie Belle: "But you HAVE to let us in!"
"I'm Sapphire Shores' designer's sister!"
Every celebrity comes with their own bald and rude bouncer.
"You have to believe us!"
"Kid, the only thing I have to do is make sure Sapphire Shores doesn't get interrupted all day by fans like..."
Oh, what is she thinking now?
"Oh, good! This is just a dream!"
"Actually, no. This is very much real."
Looks like Princess Luna knows a thing or two about sewing as well!
"I would like to know what in the wide, wide realm of Equestria this stunt of yours is all about, and I want to know now!"
"Do you have any idea how important this job is to me?"
"I didn't want your future to be ruined."
Wait! This wasn't part of my vision!
I think this isn't going to work out...
You'll love this wonderful new headdress!
Ahh! That explains the dolphins in Sweetie Belle's dream!
So, did that mirror just fall to the floor when Rarity let go of it?
Is she going to reveal my influence?
It's all right, Sweetie Belle.
Can you please do the play again?
The costumes were the best part!
