My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s02e09 Episode Script

Sweet and Elite

Here? I get to stay here? Twilight Sparkle said you were coming to Canterlot for a visit and asked if I might accommodate you.
Thank you so much, princess.
You're very welcome.
No, really.
This is so nice of you.
It's nothing, really.
Oh, but it isn't nothing.
It's everything.
I-I just don't know what to say but thank you, thank you! Thank you Thank you Thank you, thank you, thank you! -You are very welc -Thank you! Your luggage, mademoiselle? I'll leave you to get settled.
Your highness Enjoy your stay.
Thank you! Where would you like me to put these? That's perfect.
Opal, do you know what I love about Canterlot? Everything! I may have been born in Ponyville, but I am a Canterlot pony at heart.
Now I know that we are here to pick up some fabrics for the shop but Twilight was such a dear to get me that suite at the castle I simply must make her something to express my gratitude.
Ooh! An outfit for her birthday party this weekend! Perfect! Don't you just love it here, Opalescence? Please excuse our interruption.
I'm Jet Set and this is my wife, Upper Crust.
We saw you from across the café and just have to find out Where did you get that simply marvelous chapeau? Huh, this old thing? Oh, it's just something I Rarity! Hey, Rarity! It's me! Hayseed Turnip Truck! We met at the big hoedown in Ponyville last month.
Oh Yes Of course.
How are you? Good! Real good! You're from Ponyville? Well, ye yes, but She sure is! She's a real big time fancy pants dressmaker there.
Probably made that real purty thing she's got on her head.
I thought it looked a little country.
I told you it wasn't something you could get here in Canterlot, dear.
Well, they seemed real nice.
"Looked a little country.
" "Not something you could get in Canterlot.
" I'll show you something worthy of Canterlot! I have to get started right away.
This new design is very ambitious and I've already written to Twilight to let her know she'll have something beyond fabulous to wear to her party.
Fancypants? I say, that's one way to make the introduction.
Oh, goodness! I am so sorry.
I didn't see you there.
I've just got so many bags and I was trying to get back to my suite at the castle and You're staying at the castle? Wh The princess invited me to stay in one of the suites.
You know the princess? Hmm A pony with expensive taste, I see.
Oh It's for an ensemble I'm making for a friend.
Her birthday is in a few days.
Again, I am really sorry I bumped into you.
I'm not.
You are obviously somepony worth bumping into.
Uh, listen.
I have a VIP box reserved at the Wonderbolts Derby this afternoon.
Would you Would you be so kind as to join me and a few of my companions there, hmm? Me? But of course, my dear.
Well, I'm uh I'm not sure.
We'd love to see you there, uh Rarity.
Pro: seeing the derby from a VIP box is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Con: going to the derby cuts into the amount of time I have to finish Twilight's outfit.
Pro: Fancypants is *the* most important pony in Canterlot.
His stamp of approval could mean big things for me here.
Con: Twilight's party might not be as sophisticated as a derby but that doesn't mean I shouldn't put all of my energy into creating her birthday ensemble.
My Ponyville friends will appreciate my hard work more than anypony.
I hate to let them down.
And I won't.
Opal, I am going to the Wonderbolts Derby as a guest of Fancypants.
Pardon me.
Excuse me Excuse me Rarity! Jolly good to see you! So glad you could make it.
Everypony, this is Rarity.
She is staying at Canterlot Castle.
Fillies and gentlecolts! Welcome to the Wonderbolts Derby! The competitors are taking their places at the starting line and the race will begin momentarily.
I'll be rooting for Rapidfire, of course.
He's sure to take home the grand prize.
I don't think he has a chance against Fleetfoot.
And it's Fleetfoot by a nose! Bravo, Rarity! I say, how did you know Fleetfoot would be victorious? My friend Rainbow Dash talks about her all the time.
She says what Fleetfoot lacks in size, she makes up for in speed.
And who is this Rainbow Dash? Why she's She's the the Wonderbolts' trainer, of course.
Staying at Canterlot Castle AND she knows the pegasus training the Wonderbolts! I told you all this was an important pony.
Three cheers for Rarity, my new favorite party guest.
Hip hip, hurray! Hip hip, hurray! Hip hip, hurray! and then I said: "Please, that isn't a hat, darling.
" "That's a natural disaster, that somehow landed atop your head!" Oh, you are a delight, Rarity.
An absolute delight.
You simply must attend my art gallery opening this evening.
I'd love to, but I And let's not forget my charity auction tomorrow morning.
That sounds wonderful, but I And of course there's a seat for you at my dinner party tomorrow night.
I'm flattered.
It's just I have a project I really need to get started on and Oh, but Rarity! I may as well close down the whole gallery if you can't attend! My auction is for charity, dear.
For charity! And my dinner party will be a disaster if you don't come.
Of course I'll be there.
-Wonderful! -Disaster averted.
Looks like we'll be spending a few more days here, Opalescence.
Turns out bumping into Fancypants like that was the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Of course finishing Twilight's dress in time for her birthday party is still my top priority.
But I can't possibly disappoint the Canterlot elite by rejecting their invitations, now can I? I'll be the toast of the town, the girl on the go And the type of pony everypony, everypony should know I'll be the one to watch, the girl in the flow And the type of pony everypony, everypony should know Becoming as popular as popular can be Making my mark, making my mark in high society I'm the belle of the ball, the star of the show, yeah And the type of pony everypony, everypony should know See how they hang on every word that I speak My approving glance is what they all seek I'm the crème de la crème, not just another Jane Doe And the type of pony everypony should know At home, at the opera, on a fancy yacht Becoming the talk, the talk of all of Canterlot I'm the crème de la crème, not just another Jane Doe, yeah And the type of pony everypony, everypony should know Because I'm the type of pony Yes, I'm the type of pony Yes, I'm the type of pony everypony should know Oh, I hope I haven't forgotten anything.
Me too We better get going.
I must get back to Ponyville with enough time to finish Twilight's ensemble.
For me? "Dearest Rarity, your presence is requested" "at the Canterlot Garden Party tomorrow afternoon.
" "Yours, Jet Set and Upper Crust.
" The Canterlot Garden Party! Why, next to the Galloping Gala that is *the* premier event of Canterlot! Ooh.
But if I go, I'll miss Twilight's birthday.
But if I don't go, my new reputation in Canterlot as a Very Important Pony might be ruined! I might never be invited to another high society event again! Friend's birthday – Very Important Pony It's just too important.
"My dear Twilight.
I am afraid" "I won't be able to make it to your birthday party tomorrow" "because" Because poor Opal is quite ill! And she is in no condition to make the long journey back to Ponyville.
"I do hope you understand.
Your friend, Rarity.
" I suppose this means you don't need me to bring down your bags? No.
But I will need some help unpacking them.
What do you think? Too much? You're right.
Too little.
Garden party, here I come! SURPRISE! And SWOOSH! And right before she hit the ground, SHOOM, she Hi again! W-What are you How did you Why are you Listen to her.
She's so excited to see us, she can hardly talk.
What I mean to say is, what are you all doing here? When I got your letter saying you were stuck in Canterlot I asked Pinkie Pie if it wouldn't be too much trouble to move my birthday party here, so you wouldn't have to miss it.
Balloons are super easy to pack.
First you get me a suite at Canterlot Castle and now this I don't know what to say, Twilight.
How about you start by saying what you're doing in that fancy getup.
This? Uh.
Well, I I always put on something a little fancy when Opal's feeling under the weather.
Cheers her right up.
Oh, poor Opal.
Where is the sick darling? Oh, uh she's Hold on a minute.
I am so sorry about this.
She's resting on the bed.
Poor baby.
She looks awful.
Is that my dress? Yes It's so simple.
So practical.
So ME! It's the perfect dress for my birthday party! I love it! You don't know how glad I am to hear you say that.
When I told the princess that I was moving the party to Canterlot she was kind enough to offer us the Canterlot Castle ballroom.
Isn't it fancy pants? Fancypants! Where?! I mean where did you find the time to put up all these decorations? Oh, I never leave home without my party cannon! Ta-da! I thought about having my birthday outside but they're having another party on the castle grounds today.
LET'S PARTY! No reason I can't at least make an appearance.
I'm here! Darling, I'm so glad you made it.
Rarity! So happy to see you here.
I wouldn't have missed this for the world.
I say, what is that scent you're wearing? It smells like Is that cake frosting? Yes, I always dab a little frosting behind my ears before I go out.
After all, who doesn't like the smell of cake frosting? I know I do.
Well, all this talk about cake has made me hungry.
Think I'll go and see what's on the hors d'oeuvre table.
If you'll excuse me -I must say, you do look like a -Oh, yes, darling.
I think I left the bath water running in my suite.
I really should go check on Opal.
Is that Princess Celestia? I need to use the little filly's room.
Can I get anypony more punch? I have to go to do the thing with the stuff, you know.
Uh What's with the croquet mallet? -[What croquet mallet?] -Duh! The one in your mouth.
Oh, that croquet mallet.
I well, I you know, the truth is the truth is Were you at that other party in the garden? I I I Rarity, I'm surprised at you.
Twilight, let me explain! I I hadn't realized you were such a savvy businesspony.
You must understand! I All of those ponies look so posh.
And with the Grand Galloping Gala coming up I bet you could totally get some of them to buy your dresses.
Very smart.
Wh wwwhyyy, yes! Uh I didn't want you to think I was being rude so that's exactly the reason I didn't tell you.
The one and only reason.
Oh, well.
You didn't have to do that.
You should totally go over there and mingle.
Twilight, you really are the best friend a pony could ever ask for.
I don't know why I ever thought you wouldn't understand.
Understand what? Nothing! See you girls later! Hey, wait up! We're your friends.
I'm sure they won't mind if we check out the party too.
Come on, you guys! Let's show 'em how to party Ponyville style! Oh no! How come y'all aren't doin' any gardenin'? This is a garden party, isn't it? Can you believe what that pony is wearing? It's just so plain.
Yeah Excuse me.
Might I ask where you got you ensemble? Why, yes.
Yes, you may.
A very, very close friend of mine from Ponyville made it for me.
Ponyville? You don't say.
I do say.
Her name is Fancypants! Come with me.
I'd like to show you this thing that's over there.
On the other side of the room.
In a moment, my dear.
This lovely filly from Ponyville was just about to tell me who made her charming dress.
That dress? Oh, come now.
Who cares? It's just a plain old Oh, don't be so modest.
This dress you made is beautiful.
We all think so.
You know these ponies? Yes.
Yes, I do know them.
They may not be as sophisticated as some of you Canterlot ponies but they are my best friends and they are without a doubt the most important ponies I know.
"Important ponies"? These ruffians? Don't make me laugh.
I, for one, find them charmingly rustic.
And I think the dress you made for your friend is lovely.
I dare say every mare in Canterlot will be wanting one.
Oh, I'd like to place my order right now.
I think you should get two, hmm? Uh, yes.
Now then How about you introduce me to your friends? With pleasure.
"Dear Princess Celestia.
" "I wanted to tell you about the important lesson I learned during my visit.
" Now that I would like to hear.
I learned that no matter where you go in life you should never forget that you are the product of your home and your friends.
And that is something always to be proud of, no matter what.
A very valuable lesson to have learned.
It certainly is but might I ask that we hurry things up a bit? Oooh nooo!
