There are plenty of other surprises in there! Rainbow Dash: (spits apple out) What kind of surprises?! Pinkie Pie: I can't tell you that, silly! Then it wouldn't be a "surprise!" (Rainbow Dash and Applejack "hm," filtered as gurgling) (Applejack strains, grunts; water splashes) (Applejack chuckles) (Rarity slurping through straw) (punch pours into glass) Rarity: This punch is simply divine.
Is this the same recipe you used for your "Spring Has Sprung Party?" (Rarity slurping through straw) Pinkie Pie: Nope, something new! (Gummy blows bubbles) (Rarity spittakes) Pinkie Pie: It's Gummy's favorite! (Rarity gulps nervously) (Rarity slurps through straw; party music plays) OOH! This is my JAM! (Rarity spits out punch) Pinkie Pie: Having fun? Twilight: A blast! Fluttershy: You always throw the best parties, Pinkie Pie! Pinkie Pie: They're always the best parties because my best friends are always there! (Twilight and Fluttershy yelp and crash into wall) COME ON, EVERYPONY! Gummy wants to dance! Go Gummy, it's your birthday! Go Gummy, it's your birthday! Applejack: Hoo-wee! I am beat! Haven't danced that much, sincewell, since your last party! Thanks again fer the invite! Rainbow Dash: See ya later, birthday alligator! Rarity: Bravo for hosting yet another delightful soirée.
Fluttershy: It's been lovely.
Pinkie Pie: You sure you don't wanna stay? There's still some cake left! Twilight: Uh, I think I'm gonna pass.
Great party, though.
We should do this again soon.
Pinkie Pie: (gasps) We SHOULD do this again soon! (knocking on door) Twilight: (opens door) Oh! Hi, Pinki- Pinkie Pie: IT'S "SOON!" Twilight: Pardon me? Pinkie Pie: You said we should have another party soon, andit's "soon!" Here's your invitation! Twilight: (reading) "You're invited to Gummy's After-Birthday Party.
This afternoon at 3 o'clock.
" Pinkie Pie: All our bestest friends are invited, and there’s gonna be dancing, and games, and cake, and ice-cream, and punch! Twilight: (hesitantly) THIS afternoon? As in, "this afternoon," this afternoon? Pinkie Pie: Yes, indeedy! Twilight: (nervously) Oh, gosh, I wish I could make it, but I've gotten a little behind in my studies.
(books pile up) I've really gotta hit the books.
Pinkie Pie: I understand.
Your studies come first.
But don't worry! We'll be sure to save you some cake.
Twilight: Please do! Pinkie Pie: Oh! And Twilight? You shouldn't "hit" the books.
You should really just READ them.
Twilight: I'll keep that in mind.
Applejack: (startled) Huh?! Oh, hi, Pinkie Pie! What brings you around these parts? Pinkie Pie: Who's ready to shake their "hoove-thang?" [hoove(s) + groove] It's an invitation to Gummy's After-Birthday Party this afternoon! There's gonna be dancing, and games, and cake, and ice cream, and punch! Applejack: THIS afternoon? As in, "this afternoon," this afternoon? Pinkie Pie: That's funny.
That's just what Twilight said.
And the answer is, "YES! It's this afternoon!" Applejack: (stammering nervously) Uh, well, uhuhI-I don't think I can make it, 'causeuh I have to, uhuh, you know what, Iuh PICK APPLES! Yep, apples! 'Causethat'swhat we do! With theapples, we uhpick 'em.
(ominous music) (Applejack chuckles nervously and gulps) Pinkie Pie: (sweetly) Okie-dokie-lokie! A party is still a party, even if there are only THREE guests! (Applejack sighs with relief) (garbage can clanking, Spike grunting) Spike: (dreamily) Anything else I can do for you, Most Beautiful One? Rarity: (sniffs, recoils) Perhaps you could take a bath.
How do I put this delicately? You smell like a rotten apple core that's been wrapped in moldy hay and dipped in dragon perspiration.
(Spike sighs dreamily) Rarity: Ooh, looove the new hat.
Very modern.
What's the occasion? Pinkie Pie: Gummy's After-Birthday Party is this afternoon! I'm delivering the invitations! Rarity: The party is THIS afternoon? As in, "this afternoon," this afternoon? Pinkie Pie: It's so strange! Everypony keeps saying that! Rarity: (feigning ignorance) O-oh, do they? Pinkie Pie: I know it’s short notice, but we had such a great time at his birthday party, I thought we could have even more fun at his after-birthday party.
Rarity: And I'm sure that we would, but I'm going to have to decline.
I have towash my hair! Pinkie Pie: Don't be silly! Your hair doesn't look dirty.
Rarity: It doesn't? Pinkie Pie: Nope! (splorch) Rarity: (nauseous) See? (gurgles) Dirty I have to go (door slams) Pinkie Pie: HuhNo Twilight, no Applejack, no Rarity.
Oh well! A party is still a party with only two guests! Rainbow Dash: THIS afternoon? Fluttershy: As in- Pinkie Pie: (losing patience) YES! As in, "this afternoon," this afternoon! Rainbow Dash: (stalling) Oh, man, we'd love to, butwe'rehouse-sitting this afternoon! Pinkie Pie: (sighs) BOTH of you? Fluttershy: It's, uha big house.
Rainbow Dash: Uh, look at the time! We'd really better get going.
Pinkie Pie: WAIT! Maybe I could bring you some after-birthday cake and ice cream! Who are ya house-sitting for? Rainbow Dash: Harry.
Pinkie Pie: "Harry?" Rainbow Dash: Yeah, I don't think you know him.
Pinkie Pie: That's strange.
I know just about everypony around here.
Fluttershy: He's a bear.
Pinkie Pie: A bear? Rainbow Dash: Yup! He's a bear, all right, and he'll be pretty upset if we don't get over to his house soon! Pinkie Pie: Wait! There's a bear around here who lives in a house? Fluttershy: It's, uh, really more of a cave.
Rainbow Dash: But he's fixed the place up so much it FEELS like a house.
Fluttershy: And, uh, he wants us to look after his houseuh, cavewhile he's, uh Rainbow Dash: At the beach! Pinkie Pie: He's vacationing at the beach? Rainbow Dash: Yup! He loves to (simultaneously) Fluttershy: Collect seashells.
Rainbow Dash: Play beach volleyball! (simultaneously) Fluttershy: Collect seashells.
Rainbow Dash: Play beach volleyball! (simultaneously) Fluttershy: Play beach volleyball.
Rainbow Dash: Collect seashells! (simultaneously) Fluttershy: Collect volleyball.
Rainbow Dash: Collect seashells! Rainbow Dash: Goootta go! (zoom) Pinkie Pie: Something strange is DEFINITELY going on around here, Gummy.
Sure, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy had to house-sit for that vacationing bear, but what are the chances all my OTHER friends would have plans this afternoon, too? Rarity has to wash her hair? Applejack has to pick apples? Twilight is behind on her studies and has to hit the books? The more I think about it, the more those are starting to sound like (gasps) EXCUSES! (Pinkie Pie stifles a gasp) ("Mission: Impossible"-like music plays) (door slams) That doesn't look like studyingOR hitting! (bell dings, swinging doors open) Mrs.
Cake: Oh! You must be here for- Twilight: SHH! (whispering) Is Pinkie Pie around? Mrs Cake: Oh, I don't think so.
(aluminum can dangles down noisily) Twilight: Good.
I don't want her to know anything about this.
Cake: Yes, of course! I'll be right back.
Pinkie Pie: (anxiously) But we're friends.
What wouldn't Twilight want me to know anything about? (hooves clopping) Pinkie Pie: (gasps) She's coming back! Mrs.
Cake: (echoing through can) There you go! Twilight: (through can) Thanks.
And remember, not a word to Pinkie Pie.
Hey! What's with the tin can? (Twilight yelps in pain) (can clatters on floor) Pinkie Pie: (resolutely) Time to get to the bottom of things.
Pinkie Pie: (gasps) I think our cover's been blown! I'll need a new disguise (Rarity opens door) Rarity: (furtively) She didn't see you at the Sweet Shop, did she? Twilight: (hushed) I don't think so.
Rarity: Oh, good.
I'd hate for her to ruin everything.
Twilight: Me, too.
(box lands on ground) (disguise pops out of hay followed by Gummy) (Gummy sneezes) Rarity: (furtively) Have you seen her? Fluttershy: Not since this morning.
Rarity: Me neither.
Can you believe she was planning on throwing an after-birthday party TODAY?! Fluttershy: I'm just glad I was able to come up with an excuse for why I couldn't be there.
Rarity: Me, too.
This is obviously going to be so much better.
Fluttershy: As long as we keep her from finding out about it, it will.
Rarity: (whispers ostentatiously) SEE YOU LATER.
(Pinkie Pie bounces, crashes into wall, yelps) (Fluttershy grunts) (Fluttershy screams) Pinkie Pie: (downtrodden) I thought everypony loved my parties Rainbow Dash: (nonchalantly) Hi, Pinkie Pie! Uh-oh Pinkie Pie: Rainbow Dash! Wait! (Rainbow Dash sighs with relief) Pinkie Pie: WHERE ARE YOU GOING! (Rainbow Dash gasps) Pinkie Pie: (frenzied, echoing) WHAT'S THE REAL REASON YOU WON'T COME TO GUMMY'S PARTY?! (bell rings loudly) (Rainbow Dash grunts) Pinkie Pie: (screaming) WHAT'S IN THE BAAAAG?! Rainbow Dash: (anxiously) Applejack! We have a problem! (Applejack gasps) (barn door slams shut) (Pinkie Pie slams head against door repeatedly) Pinkie Pie: I KNOW YOU'RE IN THERE! (door creaks open) Applejack: (nervously) UhHowdy, partner! Pinkie Pie: (suspiciously) Mind if Itake a look inside the BARN? Applejack: (stumbling over words) No- Uh, I mean, yes- I meanyou can't come in here.
Pinkie Pie: Rainbow Dash just went in there.
Applejack: Oh, she was just bringin' in some, uhsupplies! Yep! Supplies for therenovation! Fixin' up the whole thing, top t'bottom! (ostentatiously) Uh, LOTS OF CONSTRUCTION GOIN' ON IN THERE RIGHT NOW! Rainbow Dash: (whispering audibly) You heard her! "Construction!" (Twilight, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Rarity mimicking various construction tools unconvincingly) (Pinkie Pie yelps) Applejack: Yep! Construction! That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it! (chuckles weakly) (gulps nervously) Pinkie Pie: (threatening monotone) Okie-dokie-lokie.
(Applejack sighs with relief) (Applejack sighs heavily) (others sigh) Pinkie Pie: (frustrated) Secrets and lies! It's all secrets and lies with those ponies! They're up to something, Gummy! Something they don't want me to know about! Well, I'm gonna know about it! I'm gonna know about it BIG TIME! And I know just who's gonna tell me all about it! TELL ME ALL ABOUT IT BIG TIME! Spike: Wow! Nice spread! Pinkie Pie: (genially) It's all yours, Spike.
(Pinkie Pie drags lamp over) (Gummy chomps Spike's tail, light clicks on loudly) Pinkie Pie: (flatly) All you have to do is talk.
Spike: (oblivious) That's it? Oh, you got it! Okay, uh, beautiful weather we're havin', eh? I LOVE a sunny spring day, don't you? The birds chirpin' and the flowers bloomin' Pinkie Pie: (pointedly) Nonono.
Talk about our friends.
Spike: (oblivious) Oh! Okay.

Good with magic, a real brainiac And then you got Rarity! Total.
Twilight seems to think I don't have a chance with her, buteh, what does SHE know? Let's see.
There'sThere's Fluttershy, a pegasus who's afraid of heights.
Spike: Heh.
What's up with that? Pinkie Pie: (groans) NO! You're NOT understanding me! I want you to CONFESS! Spike: Confess? Pinkie Pie: (threateningly) CONFESS!! Spike: (fearful, rapid pleading) I'm the one who spilled juice all over Twilight's copy of "Magical Mysteries and Practical Potions!" Pinkie Pie: And? Spike: And I'm the one who used up all the hot water yesterday when I took a seven-hour bubble bath! Pinkie Pie: (impatiently) And? Spike: And sometimes, when no one's around, I do this: (macho) Lookin' good, Spike! Lookin' REAL good! Pinkie Pie: (seething) No, no, NO, NOOO! Spike: (pleading) W-what do you want to hear?! Tell me what you want me to say, and I'll say it! Pinkie Pie: Tell me that my friends are all lying to me and avoiding me because they don't like my parties, (frenzied shouting) AND THEY DON'T WANNA BE MY FRIENDS ANYMORE! (Pinkie Pie panting furiously) Spike: (repeating obliviously) "Your friends are all lying to you and avoiding you 'cause they don't like your parties, and they don't wanna be your friends anymore!" Pinkie Pie: (triumphantly) AHA! I KNEW IT! (hair "pops" and "deflates" like a balloon) "Pinkamena": (morosely) Oh no! My friends don't like my parties, and they don't wanna be my friends anymore Spike: (clears throat) Uhsooo?

(Fluttershy collapses) (flailing) Because you've been LYING to me and AVOIDING me ALL DAY! THAT'S WHY! Rainbow Dash: (dryly) Uh, yeah! Because we wanted your party to be a SURPRISE! Rarity: We've been planning this party for such a long time.
We had to make excuses for why we couldn't attend Gummy's party so that we could get everything ready for YOURS! Twilight: If this is a farewell party, why does the cake I picked up from Sugarcube Corner say, “Happy Birthday, Pinkie Pie?” (Pinkie Pie's mane puffs out) Pinkie Pie: Because it's my BIRTHDAY! Oh, how could I have forgotten my own birthday?! (all but Pinkie Pie sigh with relief) And you like me so much, you decided to throw me a surprise party! Rarity: That's what we've been trying to tell you, darling! Pinkie Pie: You girls are the best friends EVER! (ashamed) How could I have ever doubted you? Twilight: It's okay, Pinkie Pie.
It could have happened to any of us.
(ponies agreeing) Rainbow Dash: I'm just glad I haven't been replaced by a bucket of turnips.
Twilight: Huh? Rainbow Dash: You don't wanna know.
Applejack: All right, girls.
Enough o'this gab.
(record scratches) LET'S PARTY! (party music plays, ponies laugh) Twilight: (voiceover) "Dear Princess Celestia, I am writing to you from the most delightful party.
I'm not only having a great time with my friends, but also was given the opportunity to learn a valuable lesson about friendship.
Always expect the best from your friends, and never assume the worst.
Rest assured that a good friend always has your best interests at heart.
Your faithful student, Twilight Sparkle.
" Pinkie Pie: You girls wouldn't mind if we celebrated Gummy's After-Birthday Party too, would you? His party was cut short, and he's pretty upset about it.
