My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s02e10 Episode Script

Secret of My Excess

No distractions.
Today is too important.
Reshelving day! "Understanding Medieval Equestria" goes in Pony History.
"Modern Spellcasting" – that's Classics.
"The Art of the To-Do List".
Actually, I kinda wanna read that again.
Spike! What are you laughing at? This little beauty.
It's my birthday present to myself.
It's a fire ruby.
I've been aging it for months.
And it's almost ripe! Hey! You took my advice! Just use the whole floor as one big shelf.
Hello! Anypony home? Twilight! Is that a fire ruby? That must be at least twenty carats! No inclusions, pristine facets And totally delicious.
Uh, you guys don't mind? Oh! Uh, of course.
I just came by to see if you hadn't any books on historical fashion.
Did you say "delicious"? Sure did! Next week's my birthday.
And this is my birthday dinner.
Start with this one.
Thanks, Twilight.
I've got the feeling ruffled taffeta capes are going to make a huge comeback this season.
And I want to be ahead of the game.
I hope it's as tasty as it is beautiful, Spike.
I've never seen anything quite so stunning before.
You really like it, huh? Like it? It's magnificent! Then you should have it.
This beautiful gem was meant to to be with you.
I don't know what to say.
This is so thoughtful.
Mm, my little Spikey-wikey! Thank you so much! Wow, Spike.
That's one of the kindest, most generous things you've ever done.
I've never seen Rarity so happy.
I will never wash this cheek again.
Just about finished, Spike? Everypony will be here soon.
Everything looks perfect.
Not quite everything.
A wash cloth? I don't get it.
Oh, no way, Twilight! I said I wasn't gonna wash the cheek that Rarity kissed and I meant it! It's over, Spike! I'm cleaning that cheek! It's mine! -Stop it! -Never! Happy birthday! Party time, woohoo! Are those for me? You bet they are, birthday boy.
Happy birthday, Spike.
Don't you know you get presents on your birthday? Well, actually this is my first birthday in Ponyville.
I usually just get one present.
From Twilight.
A book.
Speaking of presents, this is from my new line of taffeta capes.
I'm going to make one for each of you.
I've been inspired by the generosity of my little Spikey-wikey who gave me this beautiful fire ruby one of the kindest acts I've ever experienced.
Applejack, I can't thank you enough for this great blanket.
I really needed a new one.
Come on, Spike.
You already thanked me fifteen times.
I'm starting to get a little embarrassed.
I know I keep thanking you guys, but I'm just so grateful.
I wish this party could last forever.
Duh! Party can't last forever, cause you have to go to Sugarcube Corner cause the Cakes said they have a special surprise for you CAUSE IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY! NO WAY! I said the party can't last forever but it doesn't need to end right now! Hi, Mr.
and Mrs.
Cake! There's the dragon of the hour! Happy birthday, Spike! Thanks.
When we found out it was your birthday we couldn't resist trying out a new recipe.
Sapphire! Wow! Thank you so much! Man! First I get a bunch of great presents from my best friends and now an amazing sapphire cupcake! Ho ho, what a day! Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry, Cheerilee.
That's okay.
What's got you so excited? Pinkie Pie told me I should come to the Cakes so they could give me a treat, cause it's my birthday today.
Why, happy birthday, Spike! I wish I had something to give you.
Oh! Here you go.
Really? Sure.
Everypony should get fun gifts on their birthday.
Have a great birthday, Spike.
I wish every day was my birthday.
Pinkie Pie mentions my birthday to the Cakes and I get a cupcake.
I mention it to Cheerilee and I get this great hat.
I wonder Hey there, Lickety Split! That's a pretty cool ball you got there! Did you know it's my birthday? This in unbelievable! Hey, Junebug! It's my birthday! Uh Happy birthday, Spike.
Aren't you gonna give me something? You know, like a birthday present? Um I I don't have anything.
Well, how about those flowers? I'll take those.
Spike! Sorry, Junebug.
I think Spike might have gotten a little carried away.
Uh No problem.
Happy birthday, Spike! What are you doing? You're out here demanding gifts now? Wow.
You're right, Twilight.
I don't know what got into me.
Thanks for snapping me out of it.
I'd better go give Cheerilee her hat back.
No problem.
See you at home later? Sounds good.
Bye! Who else has a present for Spikey-wikey? Wow.
Little rough night sleep, Spike.
I had the weirdest drea I can't believe you! Where'd you get all this? What happened? What's happening to me, Twilight?! I don't know! Think back to last night.
Did something happen? Spike.
What did you do after I saw you? I went to talk to Spike! You went to talk to who? Oh, um I don't remember.
Hey, can I have that globe? You're not using it, right? Huh? What about this book? Spike, I'm worried about you.
You're usually not so grabby.
My arms aren't usually THIS LONG EITHER.
WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME? Well now, what theems to be the problem? This is Spike and something's wrong with him.
He used to be half this size.
And he keeps trying to take things that aren't his.
All right then.
Let'th just have a look-thee, shall we? Wittle guy not feewing too good? Who's the brave wittle boy, huh? Who's the brave one? So? What do you think, doctor? Well, I think I know what the problem is.
He is a dragon! That's not the problem.
He's always been a dragon.
Well, that would explain it.
Listen, I don't know anything about dragons.
I know about baby ponies.
Maybe you should try a vet.
Thank you, doctor.
Well, I'm flummoxed.
You bring me a dog – I've got it diagnosed in seconds.
Snake even faster.
But to be honest I've never seen a real-life dragon before.
Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy? Set.
Thanks anyway.
Come on, Spike.
He is starting to mature.
Of this fact I am quite sure.
Mature? So he's just growing up? But that doesn't explain why he keeps grabbing things.
A dragon's heart is prone to greed.
A steady diet to make growth speed.
Then the resulting bigger size only makes their hunger rise.
If this trait should go unchecked, if Spike continues to collect more growth will certainly occur.
He is going to turn into a monster.
You mean the more things the dragon collects, the bigger and greedier he gets? But how do we stop him before he's completely out of control? If his monstrous ways you wish to impede you must prevent him from practicing greed.
Get away from her, you brute! SPIKE WANT! You're not getting my scooter! SPIKE WANT! Hey, Spike! Check out this amazing broom.
SPIKE WAAANT!!! Come on, big boy.
Look at this incredible broom.
SPIKE WANT! Fight all you want.
I'm not letting you out.
Ugh, Spike.
I just reshelved this room.
What now? Now who in Ponyville would steal my apples? For that matter, who would steal my leaves? Applejack, help! Spike's running wild and I need you to lasso him! Oh, that's a good one, Twilight.
Sweet little Spike running wild.
What a laugh.
Twilight, get my rope.
HEEELP! Huh? Don't tell me you you tied yourselves up? Get us out of here right now! What was that? Sounded like Fluttershy to me.
Fluttershy? Fluttershy! I'm up here! What happened? I was helping my squirrel friends with their dance step and all of a sudden a giant rampaging d-d-dragon stormed through.
That was Spike! Spike?! But why would Spike steal my chicken coop? He just pulled it out of the ground and filled it with a bunch of apples and stuff That sounded like Pinkie Pie! Come on, girls! Back! Get back! Pinkie Pie! Stop giving him cake! I'm not giving him cake! I'm assaulting him with cake! How dare you take the cake?! He's completely out of control.
Who knows where he'll go next? Perhaps some more ruffle.
Put me down, you brute! How rude.
Don't worry, Rarity.
We'll save you.
Put her down right now! I-If you wouldn't mind, that is.
I mean it, dragon boy! We'd be ever so grateful if you'd be so kind as to possibly consider Drop her, scaly! Hey! I'm not some sort of common flyswattaaah! Girls! My cape! Look! The Wonderbolts! Oh, be quiet.
You've got nothing to be proud of.
You steal everypony's things, terrorize the town and use me as a weapon against my own friends.
Which as horrible as it is, I can almost understand because you're a dragon and all.
BUT THIS THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST FASHION! Oh no! You are not getting this gemstone! This was given to me by my dear friend Spikey-wikey.
The kindest, sweetest, most generous dragon ever.
And it is too precious to me to give to a greedy old beast like you! "Here, Rarity.
You take it.
" "It would mean even more to see you happy, than to eat it myself.
" "I I don't know what to say" "This is just so generous" Oh, what now? I suppose you'll be eating me or something.
Spike?! You're the rampaging dragon?! Somepony do something! On it! Rarity, I need to tell you something.
Just in case we don't make it.
I've always sort of had a crush We did it! I can't believe we did it! All in a day's work.
Spike, I just have to tell you how absolutely proud I am of you.
Proud of me? Yes.
It was you, who stopped you from destroying Ponyville.
You are my hero, Spikey-wikey.
"Dear Princess Celestia.
" "Today I learned a great lesson about friendship.
" "Well, you might think that it would feel good to get lots and lots of stuff" "but it doesn't feel nearly as great as giving something special" "to somepony you really care about.
" "Why, I learned that it truly is better to give than to receive" "and that kindness and generosity are what lead to true friendship.
" "And that's more valuable than anything in the world.
" Well, almost anything.
