Yet another opening shot of Golden Oak Library.
Admiring quite a stack of books.
, counting the number of books.
Twilight's got quite the reading session planned.
Twilight certainly picked a comfortable seat to stand upon!
"Are you kidding? How you supposed to read twelve books in one weekend?" Answer to your question, mate: SHE READS SIX BOOKS A DAY, DUH!
Some tea could come in handy while reading so many books.
"Well, I hope you're not planning on sleeping either."
"...why don't you take the day off?"
"Why not? These books are gonna keep me busy for a while."
"Hmm, I DO have a long..."
"...list of things I've been dying to do!"
Spike, having just left the Library.
Spike's long list of things he wants to do... Someone else saw Fluttershy and Winona in the background?
Touch my nose with my tongue.
: Spike, what can I say? Your talent is nothing I've seen before, so... congratulations! You're through to the finals of Equestria's Got Talent!
He actually enjoyed that?
Spike's list of things to do.
The last thing on Spike's checklist.
Cherry Berry giving hot air balloon rides.
Spike walking towards the Twinkling Balloon.
Losing focus already, Spike?
This is what happens when one hangs with Derpy
for too long.
Can't tell if rope is loose, or episode title is in face.
Rope is moving. That should mean something.
Uh-oh! Some baby dragon is in big trouble right now.
Spike chasing a hot air balloon.
Spike jumping from Lemon Hearts' window.
Spike with a towel on a roof.
Gotta catch that balloon!
Trying his hardest to stop.
It was Twilight Sparkle's balloon!
Spike, tying the rope to a branch.
There, that should do it.
It's okay to be... alone?
Spike feels like he's being watched.
Not exactly the safest place to be...
Spike has been engaged in a Pokémon battle!
A strange smell makes itself known.
Okay, who did that awful smell?!
Spike tripped on something.
A wild Timberwolf appeared!
The Timberwolf pack approaches.
The hunt begins for the Timberwolves.
The Timberwolves begin their pursuit.
Spike runs from the forest!
Run faster, Spike, run faster!
And he slams straight into a rock wall.
No way he's gonna climb that cliff!
Spike is cornered by the Timberwolves.
The noxious fog approaches...
NOW the smell is EVERYWHERE!
Spike...you DO realize you can breathe fire, right?
The Timberwolves get ready to feast on their cornered prey.
It gets hit by a ROCK! Now Filly Rarity would think that's really lame...
Good thing that Applejack is here.
Spike cowers from the Timberwolves.
Spike looks up to see Applejack atop the cliff!
Applejack distracts the Timberwolves.
Having got their attention, Applejack runs for it to distract them!
The Timberwolf becomes distracted.
I'm asleep and a Timberwolf is on my head. All in a day's work.
Spike notices that he's no longer the focus of the Timberwolves' anger... or hunger!
Spike takes the chance to get out of there!
Applejack running from Timberwolves.
Applejack wants the Timberwolves to follow her.
Applejack keeps running from the Timberwolves.
She sure is a fast runner!
How do ya like mah new mustache?
The branch breaks apart the Timberwolf!
Now Timberwolves can break the fourth wall?
Applejack's only got one Timberwolf left!
Applejack defeats the final Timberwolf.
Spike's shocked about what Applejack did.
When it comes to scary places, Spike looks very innocent.
Spike grabs Applejack's mane.
Close enough to being blushed.
The Timberwolf is not yet defeated.
Balloon has been returned: Mission Accomplished!
Spike enthusiastic to assist back Applejack.
Carrying back her harvested apples - seems simple enough, right?
Heroine with humble eyes.
I think you've helped me enough Spike.
Spike is ready to help wash the pig.
Me and the Crusaders got plans today.
Cutie Mark Crusaders water skiers! Yay!
What's down there, Applejack?
Piggington all muddy again.
Those eggs are in a very peculiar location.
Granny Smith, winking at Applejack.
Spike, can't hold a broom properly.
This is kind of...not as good as when you cook for Twilight
The Noble Dragon Code is official.
But Applejack, I need to fulfill my Dragon Code.
Spike didn't really do a good job...
Look at all the apple pies I give
Worst assistant; best gentledragon.
Applejack is a little worried.
Spike excited to show Rarity his pie.
There's what looks like a pie on my table.
Spike with his cute little smile.
This er-pie, better do me some good.
I don't think even Rhenton Sketchitt would like that pie...
Ok, you have to do this Rarity.
Spike eagerly awaits Rarity's opinion.
It's even more burnt than Sweetie Belle's cooking
That unpleasant gag reflex.
Spike, looking at Rarity, eating the pie.
That's enough pie for one day.
Hope Spike won't see this.
Someone pass Rarity a barf bag
"Aren't you gonna have some more?"
"It's ten in the morning."
"What was that all about?"
Joyous squeal of delight!
"Oh, what I wouldn't give to have somepony..."
"Forever in my debt!" (Hmm, Applejack isn't sure what to think of Rarity's expression)
"I'd get them to organize my closets."
"Help me with my sewing."
You really think that I'm enjoying this?
Where's your broom, Rarity?
Right there, Spike :D ...
"Applejack saved Spike's life and now he has to serve her forever."
"How ever did you come up..."
"... with that ingeniously woven..."
"... intricate plot line?"
Count on Spike to destroy most of the things that he touches.
So AJ, how's that novel you've been working on?
How did Spike end up doing this?
Spike building a rock tower.
That's quite a tall tower!
Wow! What are these weird thingies on my back?
Cross eyed, dazed, and looking cute in the process.
Mother of Celestia... that doesn't look...um...right
Do you need help breathing?
Spike bowing to Applejack.
Honestly thinking of something.
Hehehe, this will scare the focus out of her.
Twilight senses a disturbance.
Really Twilight...trying to kill us with those wide eyes.
If Applejack can make her pupils dilate at will than the whole world will stop revolving.
"But this is Dragon Code we're talking about."
"Surely you know how important the Dragon Code is to a dragon."
This plan sounds crazy enough to work.
It's not what it looks like! Honest!
"Can I still wear the mustache?"
What is it with this show and mustaches?
Alright everypony here's the plan...
Standing by, Pinkie is asking a question.
Pinkie mustache you a question, but she'll shave it for later.
Good no mustache, I guess.
Pinkie kicking the party cannon away.
OOH!! Too much cuteness! Results in cardiac arrest!!
"Damsel in distress move."
Applejack isn't a very good actress.
"You must lift your foreleg up."
Sadly, Rarity is interrupted.
Rainbow Dash has serious power lungs.
Rainbow Dash used Roar. It's super effective!
This is the! Worst! Possible! Thing!
Heh, it needs a wee bit of tweaking.
Why you make me stop laughing?
Oh! Almost forgot to stay in character.
Rarity was right, this DOES need some serious work
Ehhhhh, he's not buying it.
Double the awesomeness. Double the cuteness.
You expect me to buy this malarkey?
The roar was pretty good!
No Spike...it smells real!
They come from deep inside the Everfree Forest.
Wooden timberwolves howling.
"Basically . . . RUUUUN!!"
The Rock Tower was a smart idea after all!
Wait, Why are you using a big rock?
"Uh oh." Says the cute dragon.
I activate Polymerization!
The feeling of real dread sets in.
Timberwolves! Now made with real timber!
Sharp, wooden teeth it has!
I'll save you! No matter what!
What can you hope to accomplish with just a pebble?
Spike just pulled a David vs Goliath.
Great shot, kid! That was one in a million!
A surprisingly strong stick given how thin it is.
Choking on a tiny pebble, coughing and hacking
Then exploding, they might not rhyme but
