Rainbow Dash: Oh please, dream on.
There is NO way you beat me.
Gilda: Remember back in camp? I- Pinkie Pie: Wow, guys, that was really cool! But I think Rainbow Dash beat you by a teeny-weeny, itty-bitty little hair, or a teeny-weeny, itty-bitty feather! Rainbow Dash: Hah, see?! Good thing Pinkie Pie's here to keep you honest, G! Gilda: (irritated) Okay, Dash, last one to that cloud up there is a gnarly dragon egg.
GO! (whoosh) (metal bass line) Gilda: (hostile) I think the high altitude is making you dizzy.
(popping balloons) Pinkie Pie: Wait! Guys- (whoosh) (whoosh) (bizarre contraption noises) Pinkie Pie: Oh, wow, you guys almost got away from me that time! (bizarre contraption noises) (bizarre contraption noises) Gilda: So, Dash, got any new moves in your tricktionary, (bizarre contraption noises) or are you 100% old school? (bizarre contraption noises) Rainbow Dash: New moves?! Hah! Sit back, G, this is gonna take a while.
(metal bass line) Gilda: Hey Pinkie, c'mere.
Pinkie Pie: Yeah? (metal bass line) Gilda: (threatening) Don't you know how to take GET LOST for an answer?! (metal bass line) (intimidating) Dash doesn't need to hang with a dweeb like YOU while I'M around.

(metal bass line) (Pinkie Pie screaming and spinning) (metal bass line) Rainbow Dash: Try matching THAT! Hey, where's Pinkie Pie and her crazy contraption? Gilda: Eh, she left.
Something about being (sardonic) as busy as a bee.
(contraption noises winding down, distorted) (Pinkie Pie "hmphs") Twilight: So, Pinkie Pie, are you sure that this friend of Rainbow Dash is really so mean? Pinkie Pie: Um, YEAH! She keeps stealing Rainbow Dash away, she popped my balloons, and she told me to buzz off! I've never met a griffon this mean! Well, actually, I've never met a griffon at all, but I bet if I had, she wouldn't have been as mean and grumpy as GILDA.
Twilight: You know what I think, Pinkie Pie? Pinkie Pie: Hmm? Twilight: (hesitantly) Well, I thinkyou're jealous.
Pinkie Pie: (incredulous) JEALOUS?! Spike: Green with envy.
Well, in your case, pink with envy.
Twilight: Well, yes.
Listen, Pinkie, I don't wanna upset you, but just because Rainbow Dash has another friend doesn't make Gilda a grump.
I mean, perhaps it's YOU, Pinkie, who needs to improve her attitude.
Pinkie Pie: Improve MY attitude?! But I (stammering) Gilda's a (stammering) are you seri- (screams) (door slams, Twilight sighs) Maybe Twilight is right Maybe Gilda isn't a big meany grumpy mean-meany-pants.
Maybe I'm just a big jealous judgmental jealous-jealousy-pants.
(sighs dejectedly) (slurping) Gilda: (whoosh, laughs) That was sweet! (Pinkie's hooves clatter on table) Rainbow Dash: Uh, I gotta take care of a few weather jobs around here.
Shouldn't take long.
Just, uh, hang out in town and I'll come find ya.
Gilda: That's cool, I guess.
(macho) I'm gonna go chow down! Rainbow Dash: Later! (screams, shouts feebly) A RATTLER! A RATTLER! RUN FOR THE HILLS! EVERYBODY FORSAKE YOURSELVES! (slow, discordant banjo strumming) This stuff ain't fresh, dude.
(discordant banjo strumming) Pinkie Pie: Aw, poor Granny Smith! She didn't know it was a joke! How mean! No, no, I can't misjudge her.
(unsure) It was kind of a funny prankI guess (chomps) (gasps) I DID misjudge her! She's not only a meany mean-pants, she's also a thief! Nonononoshe might give it back! It's just a joke! Fluttershy: All right, little ones, this way, this way.

Fluttershy: (meekly) Oh, um, I'm sorry Fluttershy: I-I was just trying to- Gilda: (mocking in a whiny voice) I'm sorry! I'm sorry! (nastily) Why don't you just watch where you're GOING, DOOFUS?! Fluttershy: (stammering) B-b-b-but I (inhales, roars like a lion) (Fluttershy sobs) (derisively) Ugh, please.

This calls for EXTREME measures! Pinkie Pie style! (perky) Welcome! Welcome! Welcome! Applejack: Who's this "Gilda" I've heard nothin' about? Rarity: I hear she's an old friend of Rainbow Dash.

Rainbow Dash: Hey G, look! Presents! (pop, ponies laugh) Applejack: Spittin' snakes! Heh, somepony pulled that prank on me last month! (sardonic) Ha ha.
I bet I know who THAT was.
Pinkie Pie: (quizzically) You do? (ponies chatter) Pinkie Pie: Cake time, everypony! Spike: Hey! Can I blow out the candles? Twilight: Why don't we let Gilda blow out the candles, Spike? She IS the guest of honor, after all.

Can I have the purple tail? Gilda: (self-importantly) Well, I'M the guest of honor! And I'LL have the purple tail! Pinkie Pie: Yeah! Gilda should definitely go first! Let's get you blindfolded.
Gilda: Hey-what-what're you doing?! Augh! (Gilda spinning) Pinkie Pie: We're gonna spin you around and around, and then you pin the tail on the pony! Pinkie Pie: Now, just walk straight ahead and pin the tail! Gilda: (mocking) Now, just walk straight ahead and pin the tail! (sarcastic) Yeah, right.
This is another prank, isn't it? Gilda: I'M goin' this way.
Pinkie Pie: W-Waitthe poster is this w- (Gilda screaming repeatedly, crashes) Pinkie Pie: Uh, Gilda? You pinned the tail on the wrong end! (ponies laugh) (lion roar) Gilda: (maliciously) THIS is your idea of a good time?! I've NEVER met a lamer bunch of dweebs in all my life! And Pinkie Pie YOU are Queen Lame-o with your weak little party pranks, Do you REALLY think you can make me lose my cool?! Well, Dash and I have ten TIMES as much cool as the REST of you put together! Come on, Dash, we're bailing on this PATHETIC scene.
Come ON, Rainbow Dash! I SAID, WE'RE LEAVING! Rainbow Dash: Y'know, Gilda? I was the one who set up all those "weak" pranks at this party.
Gilda: (shocked) W-what?! Pinkie Pie: Ooh.
Rainbow Dash: So I guess I'M Queen Lame-o.
Gilda: (nervously) Come on, Dash! You're joshin' me! Rainbow Dash: They weren't all meant for you specifically.
It was just dumb luck that you set them all off! Pinkie Pie: I shoulda known! That dribble cup had "Rainbow Dash" written all over it! Gilda: (indignant) No.
It was Pinkie Pie! She set up this party to trip me up, to make a fool of me! Pinkie Pie: Me?! I threw this party to improve your attitude! I thought a good party might turn that frown upside-down! Rainbow Dash: And you sure didn't need any help making a fool of yourself! You know, this is not how I thought my OLD friends would treat my NEW friends! If being cool is all you care about, maybe you should go find some new COOL friend someplace else.
(Gilda growls) Gilda: (stumbling over words) Yeah?! Wellyou.
you YOU are such aa FLIP-FLOP! Cool one minute and lame the next.
When YOU decide not to be lame anymore, gimme a call.
(door slams) Rainbow Dash: Not.
Spike: Wow.
Talk about a party pooper.
(ponies chatter about Gilda) Rainbow Dash: I'm sorry, everypony, for bringing Gilda here.
I didn't know how rude she was.
And Pinkie Pie, I'm really sorry she ruined that awesome party you put on for her.
Pinkie Pie: Hey, if you wanna hang out with party poopers, that's your business.
Rainbow Dash: I'd rather hang out with you.
Rainbow Dash: No hard feelings? Pinkie Pie: No hard feelings.
(joy buzzers shock both) (ponies laugh) Twilight: Hey, Pinkie.
Sorry I accused you of misjudging Gilda.
Looks like I'm the one who misjudged you.
Pinkie Pie: It's okay, Twilight! Even you can't be a super smart smarty smart-pants all the time! Come on everypony, there's still a whole lotta party to finish! (ponies cheer) Twilight: (voice-over) "Dearest Princess Celestia, Today I learned that it's hard to accept when somepony you like wants to spend time with somepony who's not so nice.
Though it's impossible to control who your friends hang out with, it is possible to control your own behavior.
Just continue to be a good friend.
In the end, the difference between a false friend and one who's true will surely come to light.
Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.
" Princess Celestia: (voice-over) "Dear Twilight Sparkle, my most faithful student" (aloud) Oh! (giggles) Wrong ink! (sighs, laughs) (ending theme begins) My Little Pony My Little Pony (instrumental) My Little Pony, friends
