Rarity: (irritated) AHEM.
Blueblood: (domineering) AHEM! Rarity: (sighs, sarcastically) I'm going to have to pay, aren't I? Applejack: It's okay, Rarity.

It seems that the only thing "ROYAL" about you is that you are a ROYAL PAIN! Blueblood: (foppishly) E-ewww! Stay back! I just had myself groomed! Rarity: (mockingly) Afraid to get DIRTY?! (Rarity flails angrily; Blueblood yelps flamboyantly and crashes into pedestal) (loud, ominous creaking) Rainbow Dash: This is my chance! (creaking) YES! Wh-whoooa!

Another donut.
Pony Joe: (gruff New Yorker bartender voice) Don't you think you've had enough? Spike: (slams cup, insistently) Another donut! Extra sprinkles.
Pony Joe: Twilight Sparkle.
(laughs) Long time no see! Spike: Hey, how was the Gala? How was your "Best Night Ever?" Spike: That sounds like the WORST night ever! Ponies: IT WAS! (all laugh jovially) Twilight: I just hope Princess Celestia isn't upset with us for ruining the Gala.
Celestia: THAT was the BEST Grand Galloping Gala EVER! All: Princess Celestia?! Twilight: Pardon me, Princess, but tonight was justawful.
Celestia: Oh, Twilight.
The Grand Galloping Gala is ALWAYS awful.
Twilight: (confused) It is? Celestia: That is why I was thrilled you were all attending.
I was hoping you could liven things up a bit.
And while the evening may not have gone as you planned, I'm sure you'll agree that, in the end, it didn't turn out so bad for this group of friends.
Twilight: You're right, Princess.
Friends have a way of making even the worst of times into something pretty great.
Rainbow Dash: Yeah! Hangin' out with friends! Fluttershy: Talking! Pinkie Pie: Laughing! Spike: (stroking ego) You mean, doing exactly what I wanted to do the whole time? Twilight: Yes, Spike.
You were right.
Applejack: As horrible as our night was Rarity: Being together here has made it all better.
