"Is that everything on the checklist?"
Spike with the checklist.
Twilight explaining the things they need to do.
Are you ready, number one assistant?
I think Twilight might be too happy
Well, he did say he was ready.
Longest. Checklist. Ever.
Now that's what you call a list
"Seems like we just placed an order for those a few days ago."
Spike often questions how could he put up with Twilight Sparkle's shenanigans.
"Can't imagine why we go through so many of them."
What's next on the checklist, Spike?
Looking at the same thing with different perceptions.
"Uh, I only ordered twelve."
Nice balancing skills you have there, Mrs. Cake
These cupcakes looks tasty.
What are you doing?
Twilight is serious about removing icing.
An unsure Twilight Sparkle
Um, I cannot help but detect a variance in frosting among the cupcakes exceeding the minimum required for visual detection.
Twilight's smile, indicates she is satisfied.
Mrs. Cake can't see any real problems, right?
Twilight's nervous smile.
Let's do this.
Mathematical precision is required!
Twilight "fixing" the cupcakes
How about, I move some icing here and some there.
Nice face paint, Spike.
Uh, Twilight? I think you should stop "fixing" the cupcakes.
A forewarning of the insanity that is to come.
Well, not too bad, I guess.
There! Order restored and enforced! So much better!
A pleased Twilight leaving Sugarcube Corner.
Huh? Who placed this icing-covered baby dragon over here?
After this turn of events Twilight should squeeze 'Give a baby dragon a bath' into her agenda.
How does icing taste off your own sweaty scales?
Triple checking... the list!
"Triple check checklist to make sure we didn't miss anything when we double checked the checklist!"
Oh, what happened?
Claw cramp, that's what happened.
"Good thing we don't have anything to report to Princess Celestia this week."
"I don't think I can write another word!"
"We haven't sent a letter to Princess Celestia this week?!"
That bandage won't stay for long
Wow. Twilight went crazy, even before she started talking to herself!
"Of course it's bad!"
"I'm supposed to send Princess Celestia a letter every week,..."
"...telling her about a lesson I learned about friendship!"
Spike is overwhelmed
"Not every 10 days,"
Twilight trying to find the calendar.
"Where's my calendar? Where's my calendar?!"
Oh, he's got something.
Ah, there's the calendar!
An example of smear animation (poor Spike).
"When did we send the last one?"
"And today is...?"
The most popular "Eeek! face" in the whole series.
I wonder how long she could keep that face...
Dramatic Sparkle is dramatic
It's still daylight, Twilight...
Spike uses Point!
It's super effective! Twilight woke up!
"I'm afraid I have to take that chance, Spike."
"This is the ruler of Equestria we're all talking about."
"What if instead she starts thinking I'm not taking my studies on friendship seriously?"
"Well, why wouldn't you pass-"
"She's my teacher."
"They sent them back to grade!"
"But she won't just send me back a grade."
"She'll send me back to... magic kindergarten."
imagining being placed back in Magical Kindergarten. (Alicorn filly in back of room)
An unimpressed Spike
Again. How could she keep a face that long?
Spike uses Distract!
"That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard!"
"You're not going to be sent back to magic kindergarten."
Spike being proud.
"Because I'm going to solve a friend's problem..."
"...and get that letter to Princess Celestia..."
Twilight keeping a face for a long time must run in her family... ...and Spike is unamused.
"...got any problems, troubles, conundrums,..."
"...or any other sort of issues, major or minor,..."
"...that I as a..."
"...good friend can help you solve?"
Because I'm going to find somepony who has a friendship problem.
And off I go!
And she goes...
"This won't end well."
Looking for problems? How often do you get to hear that?
"You still have plenty of time to get that letter to Princess Celestia!"
"Has to be somepony..."
"...who needs the help..."
"...of a good friend.
That screaming sounds familiar.
I found it!!!
Twilight comes to the rescue.
"Don't worry, Rarity! I'm here!"
"Of all the worst things that could happen!"
Yes, a problem!
"Are you alright?"
"I lost my diamond encrusted purple ribbon!"
"I have searched..."
"...and I searched low."
And low again.
The floors are not clean enough to lie on.
An opportunity knocks for Twilight Sparkle, or in this case, cries for her.
Of all the things I lost.
"Never fear, Rarity."
"As your friend, I will do my best to help you fi-"
"Oh, there it is..."
Looks like the search won't be necessary.
Rarity recovers her, oh, so precious ribbon.
"So, you just lost your ribbon?
"And now you found it?"
"Yeah". Or as Big Mac says, "Eeyup."
"And nothing else is..."
"Nothing that I..."
"...as a good friend can help you solve."
That face means "Please".
"There is one thing."
That's a nice duck face Rarity.
Twilight: excited at the chance to help.
The measuring tape is right there, can you get it?
Here you go.
"Is there something bother-"
Where did she go?
Everypony goes Kung-Fu Fighting!
That's a nice looking hole.
Raze this barn/Raze this barn/One/Two/Three/Four...
Rainbow Dash the Fierce!
I got you, barn!
Applejack takes cover.
Demolishing the barn.
Even her teeth are lethal!
Rainbow Dash smashing the Sweet Apple Acres barnyard like a flying Hulk
Twilight comes within inches of death
"What in the world!"
"Rainbow must be angry..."
"She must hate her guts!"
"I know you're upset..."
"...but don't worry!"
"...that I as a good friend..."
"...could help you resolve your problem!"
"Uh, what are you talking about?"
"Oh, Rainbow Dash."
"You don't have to hide your feelings from me."
"I can tell you two must've had a terrible fight."
Tell me about your mother
"Now, why don't you tell me all about your issues with Applejack?"
I don't have issues with Applejack
"Then why are you destroying her property?"
"Because she asked me to."
"I want to put up a new barn, but the old one gots to come down first"
"Get back to it, RD."
"You got it, boss!"
I'd take cover if I were you!
Rainbow Dash before the impact
Rainbow Dash demolishing the barn
Good work Rainbow Dash.
The first stage of her messy mane.
Happy that she gets to facehoof?
Scary. And irrelevant to my conundrum.
Her mane's starting to get messy.
Twilight walking over to Fluttershy's cottage.
Now where is Fluttershy?
Oh, there she is...with a bear?!
Fluttershy Vs. bear.
Where is she?
Back-Breaking Pegasus Kick!
Fluttershy? What happened to your soft side?
Flexibility-Straining Leg Pull Technique!
The new ECW (Equestria Championship Wrestling) champion of the world. Winning by tapout! Fluttershy!
What is going on?
Merciless Aerial Stomping Method!
Stop it, please.
Twilight pretty much mirrors our reaction to the whole scene.
Neck-Snapping of Psychotic Violence Kata!
Fluttershy wins! Fatality.
Why would she..?
...I am going to step away now and erase this scene from my mind in a last-ditch attempt to hold on to a few SAN points.
Fluttershy has fully mastered the Path Of The Chiropractor Style
There are some Friendship problem out there. Got to be.
"It's fine, it'll all be fine!"
There's not much time left!!
I think I'm gonna cry...
"It will all be over! My time in ponyvile, my advance studies!"
"You're a good student."
"You can do this!"
Telling her doubtful self to have some confidence... in herself.
"Oh what happens it I cant?"
"Yes you can, all you need is to keep it together"
You'd back away too if you saw a strange pony talking to her reflection on a puddle.
staring at a reflection
Is she talking...to herself?
The twilight stare or the Twilight Zone
Hey, Twilight. You're still there?
I hear something.
kids at distance
...Stop laughing at me!
Spike to the rescue!
"Snap out of it!!!"
"Are you ok?"
phillies playing jump rope
I guess something's wrong with my eyes...
Quit freaking out and go to the picnic already!
You forgot about the picnic.
Spike's reaction is pretty much how the fans reacted to Twilight's craziness.
"I should go see my friends!"
"Glad you've come to your senses!"
Pinkie just doing what she does everyday.
Pinkie Pie's food is a lie.
I wonder what's under that cloth.
I got a surprise!
Pinkie's brought a basket with lots of balloons.
...and what does this mean...?
I guess there was no meaning after all.
Oh where is that thing?!
Deal with it.
Oh, here we go again. "This is!"
Where does she get all of these?!
So this is whining?
"You didn't expect me..."
"...to lay on the grass, did you?"
Dash turning on her swag.
Doh!! You crushed those cupcakes!
Are the ponies giving up? NO!!!
What happened to you, Twilight?
"You alright, hun?"
"I am not alright!"
I need your help! Without you, I'm more doomed than a G3 pony in Tambelon!
"It's just terrible."
It's the most horrific trouble I've ever been in and I really really really need your help!"
"My letter to Princess Celestia is almost overdue, ..."
"...and I haven't learned anything about..."
Worried over nothing
"Something awful has happened!"
"...I'll be tardy!"
Hehe, what is she talking about?
"But it looks like somepony's gettin' themselves all worked up over nothin'."
"This is not nothing!"
"This is everything!"
"I need you guys to help me..."
"...find somepony with a problem I can fix..."
"My whole life depends on it!"
Not taking Twilight seriously.
Can Pinkie's randomness really compare to Twilight's paranoia?
Stop your worrying and just relax.
Screw you ponies!
The groan has been doubled!
"Wow. I've never seen Twilight so upset before."
"Ugh! What a Drama Queen."
Pot, you need to stop talking smack about kettle.
It takes one to know one
"...relatively speaking." *Smug*
"The clock is ticking, Twilight!"
Would Twilight get over with her fears and stop looking crazy?
"Keep it together."
"If I can't find a friendship problem..."
"...I'll make a friendship problem!"
This is the perfect plan.
OH look, a nice bird's nest! (sarcasm)
Twilight and her weird looking grin.
Ooooh! The perfect targets!
Crusaders playing peacefully
The ball seems heavier than usual...
What is going on with the ball?
Why is the ball getting bigger?
Oh, because of Twilight
"Hi giiiirls!" (twitch twitch)
Um, Apple Bloom, I think you should run away with your friends...
...because of that.
Twilight's crazy close up
"Oh great, just great."
Seriously, Twilight, you're starting to scare us...
So, you girls don't have any friendship problems?!
I am so crazy!
Scootaloo is so scared her wings have retreated to her flank
Twilight has not slept since yesterday morning.
Twilight, are you interested in dolls?
Smarty Pants: Girls, take me with you, ...
"I really like her..."
"She even comes..."
"...with her own notebook..."
"So you could pretend she's doing her homework."
Didn't know a pony's neck could bend that way...
I really like her....
Scootalo's Mangusu Face...
Showing furries a lesson...
Scootaloo thinks Twilight has gone loco.
Gah, you scared us!
I think you should play it, Sweetie Belle, 'cause you like her mane.
Scootaloo should play with it.
"I'd love to..."
"You take her, Apple Bloom."
"Applejack says it's important to share."
Think, Twilight, think!
Well, if there's one thing they taught me in Desperate Spells 101, it's that when all seems lost, mind-control is the answer!
"You are going to like Smarty Pants.'
"And you're gonna like her more than anything."
Twilight casts Infinite Charisma Bonus on Smarty Pants
By the magical power of Twilight Sparkle, you will love her even more than everything!
I am your new God!
"I want it!"
"I need it!"
"I really like her mane!"
The CMC fall under the Smarty Pants spell
Smarty Pants is an Axe commercial brought to life
"The 'want it, need it' spell."
"Works every time."
Twilight Sparkle is here to save the day!.... That she ruined.
"I think we can all see that there is an important lesson to be learned here about-"
"Don't you think we need to share?"
A frustrated Twilight.
Give me back that doll, you girls!
Thrown into Big McIntosh
Big McIntosh, I need your help
You have to get that doll from those girls!
Big McIntosh about to take the doll
... Easy Out.
Now you can give me that doll back and everything will be fine.
Big McIntosh is charmed
OW! MY EYE!
Big Mac is pursued
Did somepony say there's free barbeque?!
That incredible, amazing doll!
You ponies will never get this doll!
Mayor loves Miss Smarty Pants
This is mine!
Big McIntosh causes an explosion of ponies.
Whoa,Twilight's getting old.
"Y'all hear that?"
"What in the name of all things oats 'n apples..."
"...is going on here?"
Uh oh...looks like Rainbow Dash's gonna be infect--
YOU'RE GONNA LOVE ME!!!
"Don't look at it!"
"Don't look at what?"
"My Smarty Pants doll!"
Brawl all over Ponyville.
"I had nothing to report to Princess Celestia!"
"The day is almost over!"
Oh I'm doomed...
Oh mah stars...
By the power vested in me as Celestia Invictus, I declare an end to this!
The pairings after the fight.
Epic Stare Off
Well this is awkward
Let us never speak of this again
Nopony's looking, right?
This ain't gonna be good...
"Meet me in the library."
"If you care to visit, I'll be in magic kindergarten."
"Back in Canterlot."
"We're never gonna see Twilight..."
"What are we gonna do, y'all?"
"How could this happen?!"
Well, that's the third time. "This is!"
"I really mean it this time!"
Oh no, Twilight is going to get busted.
"I'm supposed to send you a letter about friendship every week. I missed the deadline."
"I'm a bad student."
"I don't have to get a letter every week to know that."
Just in time!
Entering the library, Rainbow Dash style!
Now it's Rainbow Dash's turn to save the day!
Twilight's friends realize their mistake and come to help her
"But we thought that the thing she was worrying about..."
"...wasn't worth worrying about."
Well, it is decided.
A little proposition for you all
"From this day forth, I would like you all to report to me your findings on the magic of friendship, ..."
All of us?
"When, and ONLY when, you happen to discover them."
This changes everything.
"Your friend Spike made me aware that you were letting your fears get the best of you."
She sees me?! Better go away.
"I'm expecting some mail."
And everything is good.
Let's write that letter, shall we?
"Spike, take a letter."
Aww how cute
"We learned that you should take your friends' worries seriously."
"Even if you don't think that she has anything to worry about."
"And that you shouldn't let your worries turn a small problem..."
"...into an enormously huge..."
Spike showing off he's the better pony friend... er... dragon friend.
Spike, that's enough.
Oh well, guess I should just cross this.
mane 6 laughing
Spike's not pleased...
