"Ohoho, but that's not all!"
"When I went to look for them again, they were on the ceiling!"
Somepony is full of giggles
"Oh, Discord, I've never known anypony as funny as you!"
"I love that story about the time you tried to train your right paw..."
"...to fetch your left leg!"
"Oh, I do love our Tuesday teas..."
"...and I can't wait for you to meet my friend Tree Hugger."
"I met her on a trip to see the Breezies."
"She's a member of the Equestrian Society for the Preservation of Rare Creatures."
"We're all gonna have so much fun together at the Grand Galloping Gala!"
"Oh, I was wondering when you were going to ask me. I'd love to."
"I'm afraid I've already asked Tree Hugger."
"I assumed you'd have your own ticket..."
"...since you and Princess Celestia are friends now."
"It probably got lost in the mail."
"No biggie, as the foals say."
"But we haven't had any of our Tuesday teacakes."
"Well, I guess we're just going to have to..."
"...exclude them from our party this time."
"Oh, did I say that out loud?"
Why haven't we seen Twilight's room yet?
"Uh, she's in Canterlot, helping Princess Celestia with the Gala!"
Can't sleep, clown will... well, you know the rest.
"Oh, your first Grand Galloping Gala!"
"The excitement, the anticipation!"
"I wouldn't miss this for all the jewels in Equestria!"
It's the Cutie Mark Crusaders' first time at the Gala.
"We're going to the Gala!"
"We're going to the Gala! We're going to the Gala!"
"Alright, y'all, keep it down."
"It ain't like it's a life-changin' experience..."
Wow, we haven't seen Apple Bloom in a usual dress!
"My little sister's all grown up!"
AJ's used to just pulling Rainbow Dash's tail, now this.
"This is gonna be the best night ever!"
"I don't suppose that, uh..."
"...these adorable little cutie pies have their own tickets..."
"...to the Gross Gruesome Gala, do they?"
Seems the creators haven't read the comics.
"Ahem! To answer your rather rude question..."
"...they're going as our dates..."
"We're plus ones! We're plus-ones!"
"Yes, yes, yes, I believe I got that!"
Dashie obviously cheated.
"Have a wonderful, special, fantastic day!"
"Oh, hi, Discord. Want some cake?"
How'd she know I was in here?!
"I can give you a list of all the flavors we have..."
"...in order of most delicious to incredibly, unbelievably delicious!"
"Actually, Pinkie Pie..."
"...who are you taking to..."
"Eugh, oh, you know what?"
"I'll take all the cakes."
Pinkie, that camera is expensive!! Leave it alone!!
"He wants all of the cakes!"
"Well, I'll need all my energy..."
"...when I'm dancing at the Gala, if I decide to go that is."
"Oh, by the way, are you bringing anypony?"
"I was gonna ask my mom, because she's, you know, my mom..."
"...but it turned out she didn't want to go, so I started asking around and around and around, and I couldn't think of anypony, and I was about to just go by myself, and I realized, of course! Who loves fancy exciting affairs more than anypony else?"
FRIENDSHIP PROBLEM ALERT!
Whoever wrote this joke was obviously a fan of Das Boot.
"You know what? Cancel my order."
"You want none of the cakes now?!"
But this financial quarter was going to be so good!
So, finally, we get to see Casa de Discord.
Shades of Escher in this house.
"Oh, Tree Hugger. You're such a great friend."
"So much funnier than unfunny old Discord!"
"No, no, here. Take my plus-one. I insist."
"Before somepony else thinks he's my friend..."
"...and expects to be asked instead."
"What's that? You're worried Discord might be upset?"
"I can make more new friends anytime I want." (Aren't those dishes supposed to come out clean? Oh, wait. This is Discord we're talking about.)
"It's not as if any of this actually mattered!"
"I don't even want to go to the Gala anyway!"
"Are you perhaps looking for me?"
"Are you 'Discord or current resident'?"
"I can't find any street numbers in this place."
"My ticket to the Grand Galloping Gala!"
"I was invited after all!"
"Well, I got a little lost after I escaped the flying badgers..."
"Can you point me in the direction of the bottomless pit?"
"I think I can make my way back from there."
"Oh, over there. Somewhere. Just go over there."
"Looks like I'll see you at the Gala after all, Fluttershy."
"But I can't show up alone."
"She'll think that she's my only friend."
"Who could I bring on such short notice?"
"I must say, it's been very nice having you take over some of the planning responsibilities for this year's Gala."
"Anything I can do to make it easier on you."
"Thank you, Twilight. I am quite looking forward..."
"...to just enjoying the Gala for once."
"Announcing the spirit of chaos, Discord, and his guest, the..."
Meet our brand-new jelly monster!
"Good evening, everypony! What a glorious affair!"
"He does have a yen for shiny things, the rascal."
Excuse me; didn't bring any napkins.
"I'll take care of this."
"Burp!" (Smooze's only line)
"What are you doing here with..."
"The Smooze may be an 'it'..."
"...but it's an it with a heart of, well, blob."
"This night is extremely important to me, Discord."
"Yes, yes, yes, of course."
"Tell me, have you seen Fluttershy anywhere?"
"We're here, we're here!"
"We made it to the Gala!"
Is the Smooze part dragon?
Fluttershy with Leia hair.
"The aura coming off the waterfall was so alive!"
"So, like, magic manifestation."
"Oh, Fluttershy. I didn't see you there."
"How did you even know to look for an aura on a waterfall?"
"Discord! I thought you weren't coming!"
"No. I actually never said that. But funny how you remembered it that way."
Tree Hugger....Definitely not a stereotypical hippie.
"Anyway, good to see you. Tree Friend, is it? Your name is slipping my mind right now. How strange."
"Nice to meet you. I'm Tree Hugger. Blessings."
"Cool! Like, in another life, maybe?"
"You've gotta be kidding. You don't remember me?"
"I meet a lot of different creatures..."
"...each one of them perfect and unique."
"Yes, well, as I was saying..."
"...it's just great to be here with my oldest, bestest friend."
"Am I really your oldest, bestest friend?"
"You think I don't have other friends?"
"I was talking about the Smooze!"
"Well, I mean that's what we called him back in college."
"Smooze! I would like you to meet Fluttershy..."
"...and, um, hmm... Tree..."
"how'd you say it... Tree Embrace?"
"It's so in rhythm with my life force!"
"I can't believe I've never heard you speak of the Smooze before."
"Sounds like you two are so close."
"Well, I'm glad you got that, because that's what is true."
"That's wonderful! The four of us should go out to dinner sometime!"
"We should all go out to dinner sometime?!"
"Oh, oh! It looks like somepony wants to mingle."
"We'll be back in a bit."
"Oh, okay. Treezie and I would love to talk to you more later!"
"Sort of a juvenile nickname, don't you think?"
"I need to make this a party of one for a little while."
"Just stay out here until I come for you."
Discord, I thought you said we were close.
Guess they aren't really that close.
"I think we're gonna go hit the dance floor."
"Fluttershy, tell the Hugs here..."
"...about the time that we went to the store..."
"...and came back with two cakes instead of one..."
"...because that's how crazy we are when we're together."
"...we went to the store and bought two cakes."
"...you kind of left out all the fun and frivolity there."
"But I'm sure you got it, Tree Hugger."
"I got that you really like cake."
"We like each other. That was the point!"
"I'm actually pretty lukewarm about cake."
Wait, are we watching Discovery Family or Nickelodeon?
"That creature took my jewels!"
"I thought I told you to keep your friend under control!"
"Oh, please. I have better things to do than to watch that thing all night."
"What I mean to say is..."
"...that thing is a dear, dear friend, and I'll make sure that the ooze, uh, that he can't help but secrete doesn't get on anypony else."
Rarity, you don't even have visible private parts!
"It's alright, everypony."
"Let's just get back to enjoying this magical evening!"
Treating the Smooze like a dog.
"You are making me look like a fool in front of Fluttershy."
"I'll be back when the Gala is over."
"Oh, Tree Hugger, I've never known anypony as funny as you!"
Ooh! Green fire! He's literally burning with envy!
"Check, check, check. Is this thing on?"
"Good evening, fillies and germs!"
"I just flew into Canterlot..."
"...and wow, are my interspecies parts tired!"
Puh-lease. That joke was old when you told it.
Looks like Discord's gone raw
"I've only got these tiny mismatched wings..."
"...and even I can fly better than Twilight Sparkle!"
"Uh, well, perhaps you're into more observational humor."
"Did you ever notice how you always materialize out of thin air?"
"Why not thick air? What's the deal there?"
"I think they're... jokes?"
"You're supposed to say 'Who's there?'!"
"This is the most basic of jokes!"
I'll never understand why Gallagher
is considered a "comedian"? How is smashing watermelon supposed to be humor?
"I knew we shouldn't have invited Fooby the Kamikaze Watermelon to the Gala."
"You're the most basic of jokes."
I've just been heckled by a deadpan rock farm girl...!
...And she was funnier than me!? >:(
Least it's not an elevator full of blood.
"None of my magic works on this ooze!"
"Discord, how could you bring him here?!"
"Oh, my shoes will be ruined forever!"
"That's what you're worried about? Really?"
Row, row, row your Maud
Gently down the ooze.
"This is kind of a bummer."
"Isn't it, though? And to think, it would never have happened..."
"...had I come to the Gala as somepony else's..."
"Seems like something might have harshed his flow, you know? Like, his senses are agitated."
"You don't know anything about rare creatures."
"I've known Smoozeface for ages. He's not agitated."
"He's partying down! Whoo!"
"All he needs is some, like, calming auditory therapy."
"I know I always feel really at peace when I'm being bathed in positive vibes."
"Maybe he'll calm down with some sonic bliss."
"Do you even know what you just said?"
"Let go, Smooze! Bliss out!"
Well, Apple Bloom can breathe better now that half of her muzzle no longer covered.
...And it looks like Rarity's shoes are going to be okay, too.
Uh, Discord, that's not very good for your teeth.
"That's it! I'm done with you, Tree Hugger!"
"Oh, man. You're really bumming me out."
"Can you just, like, lower your voice a skosh?"
"Whoa, dude! What is that?!"
"Relax. I'm not going to hurt you. I'm simply going to send you to another dimension."
"I can't have you interfering in my relationship with Fluttershy anymore!"
"I will, just as soon as she's gone!"
"Then we can have a good laugh about this whole affair over our regular Tuesday tea."
"Don't worry, Fluttershy! We'll stop him!"
"I'm doing her a favor, Fluttershy! It's a lovely dimension!"
"I mean, okay, the humidity isn't great..."
"...but where isn't that the case these days?"
"I don't understand why you're doing this! We were all getting along so well!"
"...considering you've already stomped all over our friendship by inviting her..."
"...to the biggest night of the year..."
"...as if I didn't matter at all!"
"Did you really think I'd abandon you just because I have a new friend?!"
"Yes, because that's what you did!"
"No, Discord! I invited a friend to a party! I didn't abandon you!"
"What if you had a friend that you could discuss chaos-based magic with? Would that mean we weren't friends anymore?!"
"No, I suppose not. It would just mean that I'd have different friends for different things..."
"...it looks like I've perhaps overreacted just a skosh."
"More like a lot of skoshes!"
"Tree Hugger, could you give us a minute?"
"I'm just so new at this whole friendship thing. It's so much more complicated than it looks."
"Do you think maybe you owe somepony an apology?"
Guess Discord has reformed. He was never so considerate to give a pillow.
HA! She really is a "Tree Hugger".
It's true what they say. "Nothing Can Stop The Smooze!"
"I'm sorry that you got caught in the middle of my... er, you know... wrath."
"Um, I need like a few minutes to clear out my chakras before I can hug you from a place of authenticity."
"Oh, your chakras. [laughs nervously] Fair enough."
"I owe you an apology, Smooze. I spent the whole evening thinking about my own feelings and never thinking about yours."
"Well, friends! I think I may actually grow to like this multiple-friend thing."
"Hey, it's not a party until somepony spreads magic-resistant ooze uncontrollably over the ballroom!"
And it's not an MLP episode unless we hear Pinkie Pie's famous "Squee!"
"Come on, Smoozinator! Let's dance!"
"I'm sorry, Princess Celestia."
"I thought I could give you a break tonight..."
"...but it turns out I was in over my head."
"You have nothing to apologize for."
"This has been the most fun Gala in years!"
"But there was ooze all over the place!"
"And one of the guests threatened to send somepony to another dimension!
"Can you imagine how dull it would have been..."
"...if I hadn't invited Discord?" (Sounds like Celestia "knew" Discord wouldn't behave.)
"The night is still young!"
