The Cutie Pox

Today is the day, Cutie Mark Crusaders! I can just feel it! Today is the day we are all gonna get our cutie marks in bowlin'! Woohoo! I mean Yaaay! Why, after today 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.
How about the Pin Twins! But there are three of us.
Okay then.
Um The Bowling Dolls! The Bowling Dolls! That's it! Perfect! Alrighty then.
Let's bowl 'em over! Cool! A bowling cutie mark! I did it! I did it! Blank? But But But what about my ball? That bowling sure was fun.
Even if all I got was gutterballs.
At least you're able to keep your ball in your lane.
I don't think Mr.
Kingpin is ever gonna let me play again.
Hey! Maybe I could get my cutie mark in demolition? Aw, come on, Apple Bloom.
I know just what you need to put the bloom back on your apple.
A treat from Sugarcube Corner will cheer you up! No, it won't.
A party will cheer you up! No, it won't.
A lovely new chapeau will cheer you up.
No, it won't! Come on, Apple Bloom! It's just a cutie mark.
Or lack of a cutie mark! Shh! That's not helping.
Apple Bloom! Where are you going? Apple Bloom! Come back! Whoa! Well.
Who is it that we have here? Why, it's Apple Bloom, my dear.
Aw! What has happened to you, youth? Ah, you've gone and chipped your tooth.
Come with me.
I have just the trick that will fix you up quite quick.
I tried everything, Thecora.
And thtill no cutie mark.
Why, I'm gonna be as old as Granny Thmith and thtill have a blank flank.
Your frustration is well understood.
But one must be patient for all things good.
I've heard that from everypony I know.
And now from every Thebra I know.
I'm jutht too impathient to be pathient.
I jutht want my cutie mark and I want it now! For your cutie mark you will have to wait.
We must fix that tooth before it's too late! Now drink down every little drop and this mixture will mend that chip on top.
Oh my star apples! You did it, Zecora! Golly.
You have tonics that heal all sorts of ailments.
Bad bones, bad back, bad breath Yes, little one.
It is true.
I have many a healing brew.
And not only stuff that fixes the bad but stuff that brings the good.
Good health, good hair good heavens! Hmm I bet you can mix up a brew to fix anything.
There are many mixtures in this room but none for what you want, dear Apple Bloom.
A magic potion does not hold the key for a cutie mark.
Time is the only remedy.
What's you got goin' on there? I am brewing up another mix for a rooster and his chicks.
It seems the rooster has lost his crow making mornings very slow.
Hey! I've seen that flower bloomin' in Ponyville.
What is it? It is one we call "heart's desire".
A dash will ignite the rooster's fire.
With heart's desire his talent comes into view and he'll make a mighty cock-a-doodle-doo! Zowie! Heart's desire, huh? Ay me! But what is this? I've run out of amethyst.
I must go get this purple flower for my brew to have full power.
You go.
You go.
I'm so hungry.
I can't wait Apple Bloom! You've got your cutie mark! Um Apple Bloom.
What is it? Yeah.
Is it an "O"? Is your talent spelling? Or is it a ring? Are you a jewelery maker? Or ith it a powdered donut? Cauthe that thouhdth delithoiuth.
It's a loop-de-hoop! A what now? A loop-de-hoop.
'least that's what I always called it.
Applejack made it for my from an old ring barrel when I was littler.
Who'd have thought that loop-de-hoop would end up bein' my special talent? Wow, Apple Bloom! That's amazing! That's it? That's your talent? Spinning a hoop around your waist? Puh-lease.
You ain't seen nothin' yet.
Apple Bloom! You're super-duper loop-de-hooper! Thanks, everypony.
All right, my little ponies! Time for class! Apple Bloom.
Yes, miss Cheerilee? I want you to take your loop-de-hoop into the yard and give us all a lesson in your amazing loop-de-hooping! Oh! Oh! Don't worry, gals.
Keep at it and you might get to be half as good as me.
Great job, girls! You're too kind, Apple Bloom.
Yeah, we stink.
You just need a little practice.
Soon you'll be able to Hoop'n'bob! Hoop'n'hop! Hoop'n'skip! And hoop'n'flip! Show us some more, Apple Bloom.
Well, alright.
Just a few more tricks.
But be warned these are advanced moves.
Not for beginners.
Got that, Diamond Tiara? I call this one the hoopla! Another cutie mark? Ha! I guess that last trick was a lot of hoopla.
Those cutie marks are fake! What? No, they're not! Miss Cheerilee, have you ever 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? Then let's see you do that.
-Spin plates! -Yeah! Two cutie marks? Two talents? Aw yeah! Our friend is the most special pony ever! Alright, everypony! You ready for a real show? Yeehaw, little sis! Huh, congratulations on gettin' not just one but two cutie marks.
Oh, we're mighty proud of you.
Right, Big McIntosh? Eeyup.
I've never seen anythin' like it.
Have you, Big Mac? Nnope! Why, the way you were a-hoopin' and a-hoppin' and kickin' and spinnin' reminded me of when I was a spry young filly.
Charlie horse! Charlie horse! That's better.
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 plum tucker.
I'll see y'all in the mornin'.
'night! 'night! Oh my! Little Apple Bloom has finally blossomed! -Hasn't she, Big Mac? -Eeyep! What in tarnation is that? Apple Bloom.
What is all that awful tapping? Three cutie marks?! Help me! Help me! Come 'ere, you! I'm sorry, Applejack! I don't know how to make it stop! Well, I know somepony who might.
Three cutie marks? Three talents! I've never seen anything like it! I was just reading something about unusual equine illnesses.
What was it? "Perplexing Pony Plagues", perhaps? Yes, Spike! You're amazing! Yes, well, I do have some talents.
Hay fever the trots Cutie pox! Cutie pox?! Cutie pox – this puzzling pony plague afflicted the population of ponies back in the paleopony period! Say that ten times fast.
Random cutie marks appeared all over the ponies' bodies causing them to perform all the talents that came with them.
Just like me! Yes, but what's the cure? What's the cure? It says here there's no known cure.
No known cure?! The cause of the breakout was never discovered.
And the cutie pox disappeared as mysteriously as they arrived.
Oh no! Sacré bleu! Plus de marque de cutie! [Good heavens! Another cutie mark!] Qu'est-ce que c'est? Je parle français? [What's that? I speak French?] My sister's speakin' in Fancy! She needs help! I know she needs help! We can't just wait for this to go away.
We gotta find somepony to mix up a cure! And fast.
Tout suite! [Now!] Not somepony.
Some zebra! Zecora! Hurry! Hurry! Dépêchez-vous! [Hurry up!] She's cursed! Hexed! Enchanted! No, she's not.
She just has some weird, mysterious disease with no known cure, called cutie pox.
CUTIE POX?! I thought I have removed their fear the last time I visited here.
But doors are barred and shutters shut.
Guess I should have stayed inside my hut.
Zecora! Apple Bloom has cutie pox.
We were just on our way to see if you've had a cure! But magically you're here! 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 have mysteriously left my room.
Apple Bloom, what do you say? Did this flower just walk away? I um A cutie pox cure I have forsooth.
For healing power is in the seeds of truth.
W well then.
Give 'em to her! Quick! These seeds must be planted in the ground.
With the truth they'll grow and the cure is found.
Come again? The seeds of truth do hold the cure, but one must speak words true and pure.
Well then, let's get to it! Alright.
They're planted.
Now somepony tell the truth! Somepony! Anypony! Yesterday I told Mrs.
Cake that I ate two corn cakes but I really ate three! Okay, six! I ate six corn cakes! Make it stop! Oh, make it stop!!! Oh, I can't stand it anymore! 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! Whoa Apple Bloom! Are you okay? I'm great.
And I've never been happier to be a blank flank.
But I'm awful sorry I lied.
Especially to you, girls.
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.
Why, 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.
Apple Bloom, would you mind writing to Princess Celestia and telling her what you learned? I'd be happy to, Twilight.
Spike! Ready! "Dear Princess Celestia.
" "Waiting for what your heart desires can be really hard.
" "So you may try to take a shortcut.
" "But this dishonesty never works, because you didn't earn what your heart desires.
" "The only cure is being honest with yourself and others.
" "And that's something every heart desires.
" I sure am proud of you, sis.
Seems like you've finally learned the importance of patience.
Yep! All good things come to those who wait.
Well, I've waited long enough.
Actually, that was way too long.
What? 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! -Yeah! -Woohoo!
