"Today's the day, Cutie Mark Crusaders!"
"I can just feel it."
Scootaloo will show us games to play...
The Cutie Mark Crusaders in front of the bowling alley.
Somepony's super excited about bowling.
"I mean, YAY!"
"We won't even be The Cutie Mark Crusaders anymore!"
"We'll be the..."
"The Three Strikes!"
"That makes us sound like we've struck out."
Hmm, let me think of a better name.
"The Pin Twins!"
"But there are three of us."
"Okay then... Um..."
"The Bowling Dolls! That's it!"
"Let's bowl 'em over."
Ponies and bowling lanes.
Watching Sweetie Belle, take her turn.
Hello there, Jesus Quintana.
Sweetie Belle's turn to bowl
Don't fail me, bowling ball.
And off it goes!
Ah, whatever. It's just a game.
Sweetie Belle walking away happily.
It's my time to shine!
This doesn't look good.
The bowling ball, takes a misleading turn.
"OVER THE LINE!!!"
Another gutter ball...
Mark it zero!
Hide from the looks!
Apple Bloom, trying to figure out how to hold the bowling ball.
I wonder what this tastes like?
That cannot be good for your jaw...
No wonder her teeth broke
That's a strike!
Let the fanart commence!
"Cool! A bowling cutie mark!"
I did it!
And that means...
What? I'm still a blank flank?!
So, that's who they're cheering for.
"What about my ball?"
there it is making it's way to the pins...taking it's time
Didn't even jiggle the pin...
I didn't do it...
I am not Mr. Lebowski. You're Mr. Lebowski. I'm The Dude.
"Smokey, this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules."
"That bowling sure was fun, even if all I got was gutter balls."
Apple Bloom looking miserable.
She's amazin' on that scooter
Maybe, I can get my cutie mark in demolition.
A miserable Apple Bloom walking away.
At least her friends are happy.
Sweetie Belle thinks she knows exactly how to cheer up a sad Apple Bloom.
Here you go, Apple Bloom.
A party will cheer you up!
Pinkie checking for a smile.
Her friends' attempts to cheer her up.
Blow and Pinkie checking again for a smile.
No it won't.
You KNOW it's bad if a Pinkie Pie party doesn't lift your spirits...
This might cheer you up.
She's much too sad, that even a new hat won't put even a small smile.
Scootaloo flew for all of two seconds!
Not even a new hat will cheer up a sad Apple Bloom.
"No, it won't."
When she's a sad apple, her bow deflates.
"It's just a cutie mark."
"Or a lack of a cutie mark."
"Shh! That's not helping!"
Where are you going, Apple Bloom?
Maybe I should go back.
Just ignore them.
Maybe we should just go.
Watch out, Apple Bloom!
"She'd be rolling down the mountain when she comes!"
So easy for a pony to have her tooth chipped?
"Well who is it that we have here?"
"Why it's Apple Bloom my dear."
Now she's Condaleeza Rice!
A chipped tooth.
"Come with me, I have just the trick, that will fix you up quite quick."
Eh, I'll just follow her.
"Well, I'm gonna be as old as Granny Smith and still have a blank flank!"
"Your frustrations are well understood."
"But one must be patient for all things good."
"For your cutie mark, you will have to wait."
"We must fix that tooth before it's too late."
Apple Bloom drinking the tooth repairing potion
I'm feeling something.
"Oh my star apples!"
"Bad bones, ..."
"... bad back, ..."
"... bad breath."
"Good health, ..."
"... good hair, ..."
"I bet you can mix up a brew..."
What are you up to?
Uh-Oh when she makes a face like that it usually means trouble!
This is a free period where foals can play,chat,run or do anything this time.
Those fillies are so energetic
Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle sees Apple Bloom.
You wanna see something?
Look at this!
"Apple Bloom! You got your cutie mark."
"You got your Cutie Mark!"
Apple Bloom is so proud of brand new cutie mark!
They see me cutie markin', they likin'.
"But what is it?"
Great cutie mark, but what is it?
So Derpy does travel with Dr. Whooves!
"Is it an O? Is your talent spelling?!"
Those glasses look ridiculous.
It's a Loopty-Hoop!
Ah, that's awesome!
"A what now?"
"You ain't seen nothin' yet."
An animation glitch - her cutie mark shifts to near her knees as she rears up.
Possible Hudsucker Proxy reference?
Major jaw dropper
Yahoo!She did it,she did it!
Now what are they watching?
Son. I am disappoint.
Oh, it looks like somepony failed with the loop-de-hooping.
It was me.
You can get your hoop back,it's not a problem.
Not everypony has Apple Bloom's talent.
Looks like another failures.
"Don’t worry, gals. Keep at it and you might get to be half as good as me!"
"You're too kind, Apple Bloom."
"Yeah, we stink."
What a large mouth you have, Apple Bloom
On one hoof.
Humans will never do that...
This is going to be great.
Only for advanced experts; got that, Diamond Tiara?
I will hire hitponies to deal with you.
I must go! My planet needs me!
Who knew that a hoop could lift a pony?
Two Cutie Marks!
I guess Earth Ponies really were never meant to fly
A second cutie mark?!
"Ha! I guess that last trick was a lot of hoopla."
At least we're rich!
"Those cutie marks are fake!"
"No they're not."
"Miss Cheerilee, have you heard of a pony..."
"...with two cutie marks?"
"I must say that I never have."
"But maybe Apple Bloom has two special talents."
"Oh yeah,lets see how you do that!"
Maybe this ever worked...
Well, I guess those cutie marks "aren't" fake!
Two cutie marks? Two talents?
Huh? This is working?
Oh, yeah! This is my one of my very special talents to blossom!
She's the most special filly ever!
"All right, everypony. You ready for a real show?"
"Yeehaa, little sis!"
Whoa Apple Bloom, you look bushed as a turtle, you need bed rest!
"We're mighty proud of you."
"right, Big McIntosh?"
You look funny, AJ
Granny Smith was a spry young filly.
Big McIntosh after helping granny Smith with her charley horse.
"Why Apple Bloom, I think you're ready to hit the rodeo circuit right now!"
"Actually, I'm ready to hit the hay right now. I'm plumb tuckered!"
"I'll see y'all in the mornin'."
We are a traffic signal, right Big Mac?
Can't sleep with this noise.
"What in tarnation is that?..."
She'd better not be doin' what I think she's doin'...
...I told her not to use that old typewriter in the mid--
"What is all that awful..."
"Three Cutie Marks??"
What the hay is goin' on with my lil' sister...?!
"Well I know somepony who might."
"Three cutie marks! Three talents!"
"I never seen anything like it."
"I was just reading something about unusual equine illnesses."
"What was it?"
I have the book you're looking for.
"Yes Spike! You're amazing!"
"Yes, well, I do have some talents."
Here, have a read.
Cute diagram for Cutie Pox
"This puzzling pony plague afflicted a population of ponies back in the paleopony period!"
"Ha ha! It's funny 'cause it's hay, and you're horses and..."
"Shut it, Spike."
"Random cutie marks appeared all over the ponies' bodies, causing them to perform all the talents that came with them!"
"Just like me!"
"What's the cure?"
"There's no known cure!"
"No known cure?!"
Apple Bloom joins Scouting
"Plus de marques de cutie!"
Apple Bloom is shocked that she was able to speak French, perfectly.
"Qu'est-ce c'est?! Je parle français?!"
"Mah sister's speakin' in fancy!"
We must hurry!
Where are you taking me, cutie mark?
The Birth of Venus. Pony version.
Aren't chimney sweeps supposed to sing?
There, all clean!
Let me play you the music of my people!
Lion taming cutie mark
Lions got nothing on Apple Bloom!
Somepony has to be mad to have lions around Ponyville.
Dang Nabbit! I should stick with golf.
Enjoying the show
I believe I could fly!
"No, she's not."
"She just has some weird mysterious disease with no known cure called cutie pox."
The cutie pox!!!
And all was just silence.
Well that was unexpected.
"I thought I had removed their fear, the last time that I visited here."
"But doors are barred and shutters shut, guess I should've stayed inside my hut."
Apple Bloom the mathematician.
Was your zebra sense a-tinglin'?
"My 'zebra sense' did not bring me round, it was a special flower that I needed found."
"I thought I picked enough to fix all the potions I had to mix, but after my visit from Apple Bloom, some had mysteriously left my room."
With all that strength, Apple Bloom should have already been in the Equestrian Games.
"Apple Bloom! What do you say? Did this flower just walk away?"
She must be hiding something.
I'm cleaning your windows up.
"Good thing we listened to the CDC and prepared for a nuclear attack."
"A cutie pox cure I have, forsooth, ..."
"...for healing power is in the..."
"...Seeds of Truth."
"The seeds of truth do hold the cure, but one must speak words, ..."
"...true and pure."
Tell them what you did, Apple Bloom.
"Well then let's get to it!"
Plant the seeds as fast as you can.
"Alright, they're planted."
"Now somepony tell the truth."
Pinkie, do something!
And then Apple Bloom became a tornado.
She just became a tornado.
CDC fact: Only two in three ponies is adequately prepared for the hydrogen bomb.
Oh no, Apple Bloom.
"Yesterday I told Mrs. Cake that I ate two corn cakes, ..."
"...but I really ate three!"
I am not wearing my hat.
Why so nervous Pinkie? Do you have something to hide?
"I ate six corn cakes!"
Why isn't it growing?
"Make it stop! Oh!"
"Make it stop!"
"Wah, I can't stand it any more! It's me! I admit it! I didn't earn my cutie mark! They're all fake!"
"I figured the Heart's Desire would..."
"...help me get what I wanted most!"
"So when Zecora left her hut, ..."
"...I mixed up a special potion and put the rest of the Heart's Desire in it!"
And the truth is told.
The plant that grows from the Seeds of Truth.
Everypony oohs over the flower, which has just grown to the extent that it appears.
Her multiple cutie marks vanishing
Yes! I have been cured.
"I'm great, and I've never been happier to be a blank flank."
"But I'm awful sorry I lied, especially to you gals."
"I was so desperate for my cutie mark, I just got carried away."
"And I'm really sorry I snuck those flowers from you, Zecora. I- I wouldn't blame you if you never wanted me to come by again."
"Now, Apple Bloom, do not be silly."
"You are always welcome, my little filly."
"With each mistake you learn something new, ..."
"...growing up into a better you."
Where did she go?
"Apple Bloom, would you mind writing to Princess Celestia and telling her what you've learned?"
"I'd be happy to."
"Spike, take a letter."
Apple Bloom tells the lesson that she learned after all the cutie mark madness was over.
The letter is sent.
"I sure am proud of you, sis. Seems like you finally learned the importance of patience."
"All good things come to those who wait."
"Well! I've waited long enough."
So much for being patient.
"So what are we gonna do today to earn our cutie marks?"
"Well, I was thinking, for a pony who's never mixed up a potion before, you sure stirred up something fierce."
"Yeah! So, what if your talent is potion-making?"
"Oh my gosh, totally! Let's go talk to Zecora, now!"
