"Spring training was awesome..."
"...but I can't wait to see my friends!"
"I'm gonna catch up on some Daring Do with Twilight, help Applejack make my favorite cider..."
"...and have a sleepover with Pinkie!"
"We get it. You have a fun week planned."
"Meanwhile, I'm stuck here running trials week at the Academy."
"But you love yelling and blowing your whistle."
Don't forget your bags, Dash!
Twilight, you seem rather chill about this friendship mission.
"The Crystal Mountains? Vanhoover? Here?"
"Well, the good news is we both got called by the map!"
"Does that mean there's bad news?"
The fresh meat has arrived.
"All right, newbies! Welcome to trials week for the Wonderbolt Academy!"
"You'll be judged on your speed, strength, agility, and technique..."
"...culminating in a final evaluation."
"Will you fly so much your wings fall off?"
"That has only happened once."
"She's just exaggerating to make a point, right?"
"I mean, wings can't really fall off... can they?"
"You think you've got what it takes to be an elite flyer?"
"Well, lemme tell you. You don't!"
"You don't think Rainbow Dash is the pony whose wings fell off, do you?"
"Quit your whispering and give me five hundred laps!"
"Um, I just wanted you to know, you two are my favorite ponies in all of Equestria."
"Well, isn't that sweet?"
"Now get going on those laps!"
"What are you doing back so soon?"
"Official friendship business."
"Have you noticed anypony having a hard time with their friends?"
"Not really, but it's not my job to worry about their relationships. I'm here to make them elite flyers."
"Adorable. They're so full of hope and competition."
"Eh, their technique could use some work, though."
"You should tell them. I'm sure they'd appreciate any notes from you."
"Nah. I wouldn't want to mess with their confidence."
"But they'll never get better if they don't know what to work on."
"Sloppy wing placement, crooked lines..."
"I'm gonna have to drill them on basic technique in the classroom portion."
"Classroom portion?" (Now that's the Twilight we all know and love.)
"Yeah, it's everypony's least favorite part of trial week, but it has to be done."
"Between your flying skills and my teaching expertise..."
"...they could learn a lot!"
"Plus, once they get to know us..."
"...they'll be more comfortable coming to us with their friendship problems!"
"You have your work cut out for you."
"Thank goodness I had time to whip up a few charts on flight patterns and wing symmetry!"
"It's fresh in my mind from when I learned to fly!"
"I practically fell asleep when I went through this."
"Tell you what. I'll leave the teaching stuff to you..."
"...and I'll just make sure they stay awake!"
"I'm pretty sure their thirst for knowledge will keep them bright-eyed and bushy-tailed."
"Wake up, newbies! Class is in session!"
"Hello, students! I'm Twilight Sparkle, and this is Rainbow Dash."
"But you can call us 'T-Sparks' and 'The Dashinator'!"
"And we're here to go over..."
"...basic flying technique."
"Me. I mean, we're here because we're amazingly awesome crazy-good flyers."
"Sky Stinger. You've, uh, never heard of me?"
"He set the record for the fastest vertical acceleration rate!"
"Five hundred feet in two seconds!"
"Huh. That's pretty impressive."
"It is, and we can talk personal records after class..."
"Vapor Trail. She's my wingpony."
"I never fly without her."
"But you'll have to in the solo trials."
"There are... [gulps] ...solo trials?"
"Yup. It's a part of your final evaluation."
"We'll ace that test with our wings tied behind our flanks."
"My picture will go right up there, next to yours."
"That's a mighty big claim..."
"...considering everypony here is an amazingly awesome crazy-good flyer."
"Let's get back on track."
"Now, who can tell me the best wing angle to achieve minimal air resistance?"
Way to set an example as an alumni...
"Do you think they're still mad?"
"Yeah, they're still mad."
"This is all my fault. If we'd just done things your way..."
"...maybe we could have avoided this whole mess."
"It hit me when I was watching Sky train with you."
"Oh, no. He's lost his confidence."
"Do you want to tell me..."
"...why one of my most promising students..."
"...is flying like a balloon with a hole in it?!"
"Uh, it's a long story..."
"We really messed up, huh?"
"Sky, Vapor was never trying to steal your spotlight."
"She thought she was helping you."
"And Vapor, you shouldn't have been so content to take a back seat."
"Now, you can either stay mad..."
"...or help each other and become two of the greatest flyers the Wonderbolt Academy has ever seen!"
"Please pick the second option. I don't want Spitfire to be mad at me."
