The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000

Who could that be? It's still dark! C'mon, Fluttershy! Cider season's about to start! Oh, where are we? What's the rush? The rush? Don't you remember what happened last year? Or the year before that? Or pretty much any cider season ever?! Um, well Pinkie Pie! She always ends up ahead of us in line, and then they always run out of cider! - I guess I - Well not this year! This year, I'm gonna get there before sunrise so I can drink all the cider I want, and laugh when she doesn't get any! It's the perfect plan.
I might even buy some cider and hold onto it for a while drinking it drop by drop in front of her Gee Rainbow Dash, it looks like a few other ponies had the same idea.
Oh, gosh Pinkie, I love your new style.
Who are all these ponies?! Isn't this great? I couldn't sleep last night 'cause I was so excited about cider season and I had this brilliant idea to come gather and camp out so I told a few others about it and they all thought it was a great idea too and now it's just a big old cider party! Woohoo! Oh gosh, that's a lot of ponies.
Hope they don't run out before you get any.
Isn't this exciting, Spike? Opening day of cider season! Yeah! That means it's only thirty more days to sapphire season! Attention, everypony! Cider season is now officially open! Sorry everypony! That's it for today! Surprise, surprise You ran out again! Yeah, you always run out! For the record, I don't mind Why can't you make enough cider for all of us? Or at least for me! Hold on everypony, we've done our best to improve supply this year.
You always say that! And it's always true.
But Apple family cider is made with love and integrity and only the highest quality apples in Equestria.
Sorry, but that recipe takes time.
If y'all just be patient, we'll have plenty more tomorrow.
She's right, y'know! You can't rush perfection! And this year's batch was perfection! Uh, Pinkie Pie I'll never forget the cider I just drank!

We're saying you've got Opportunity In this very community He's Flim, he's Flam We're the world famous Flim Flam brothers Traveling salesponies nonpareil Yeah! You got a deal! Not so fast! No way no how that machine matches up with the care we put in our cider! But if it really does work, we could make everypony in town happy! I just don't know, y'all.
We've always made cider the same way.
We'll sweeten the deal.
You supply the apples We supply the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000.
Then we split those sweet sweet profits Seventy five - Twenty five.
Deal! Hold on, who gets the seventy five? Why us, naturally.
And, we'll throw in the magic to power the machine for free.
Cider sales keep our business afloat through the winter.
We'd lose Sweet Apple Acres if we agreed to this.
So? What'll it be? No deal.
Very well, if you refuse our generous offer to be partners then we'll just have to be competitors.
You wouldn't dare.
Oh no? Don't you worry, everypony! There'll be plenty of cider for all of you! Once we drive Sweet Apple Acres out of business.
Still worried about Flim and Flam? Granny Smith says they were just blowing hot air.
I'm not so sure.
They sounded mighty serious when they threatened to run us out of business.
That's it! Last cup! Oh for Pete's sake! C'mon back tomorrow, everypony! *Tomorrow?* What seems to be the problem here? Oh my oh my, out of cider again? What have we here? Who'd like a cup? Don't worry, everypony, we've got the Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000 to make more in an instant! You can't sell that cider! That's made from Apple family apples! Is this some kind of cruel joke? Don't worry, everypony, there are plenty of apples in Equestria.
We'll find some others and make more cider than all of Ponyville can drink! We'll make more cider than you could ever imagine! Now, it ain't about the speed, young'un, it's about quality.
Who cares how good the cider is, if I never get to drink any? Oh, look at these poor, dissatisfied ponies.
Ponyville is Sweet Apple Cider country! Our cider speaks for itself! Let's put it to the test! Anywhere, anytime! Well, that's enough, now.
With our machine, we can make enough cider in one hour to satisfy this entire town! We'll do it in 45 minutes! Easy, Apple Bloom, easy.
What's the matter, Granny Smith? Chicken? What did you call me, sonny? If you're so confident in your cider, then what's the problem? Tomorrow mornin', right here! But I'm afraid we haven't any apples.
You can use our south field and it'd be worth it to teach you all a thing or two about cider making! Excellent, we have a bet.
Whoever produces the most barrels in one hour, wins the exclusive right to sell cider in Ponyville.
And after we beat ya, I don't never want to see you bimbahoozalers around here again! Until tomorrow.
Don't worry, Applejack, I know you'll win tomorrow! We'd better, 'cause if we don't, we're gonna lose our farm! Applejack? Are you sure this is such a good idea? Me and the family are a hundred percent confident in our cider making capabilities.
And besides, nopony calls Granny a chicken.
Attention everypony! Well, good luck.
Thanks Twilight.
We'll need it.
The teams have one hour to produce as much cider as they can.
After which, the barrels will be counted and the winner will be named the sole cider provider for all of Ponyville! Are both teams ready? Ready! Ready! Then let's go! Bad 'un.
Good 'un! Bad 'un Great job, y'all! We've already filled an entire barrel! I'll bet you those guys don't even have C'mon, Apple Bloom, focus! We gotta forget those guys if we're gonna have a chance of winnin'! Sorry, sis! Better keep up, Granny, we're fallin' behind! Good 'un bad 'un Rest when it's over, Big Macintosh! Ride! Ride! This is just dreadful.
Even at top speed, the Apples are only making one barrel to the twins' three! Miss Mayor! Are honorary family members allowed to help in the competition? Well, I'm not sure Flim, Flam, would you object to honorary family members helping? Are you kidding? We don't care if the whole kingdom of Canterlot helps.
It's a lost cause.
I guess it's okay.
Applejack? What do you think? I think I'd love to have the rest of my family helpin' out.
All right! Okay everypony, we're not gonna let those smooth talkers take our friend's farm.
Yeah! Fluttershy, help Applejack with the trees.
Got it.
Pinkie Pie, you're on apple catching detail.
Yes sir, ma'am, sir! Rarity, you've got a discerning eye.
Help Granny Smith at the quality control station.
Of course.
Rainbow Dash, do you think you can help Big Macintosh press? In my sleep! Alright everypony, let's save Sweet Apple Acres! All right! Over there, Apple Bloom! Don't miss them! Right behind you, Pinkie Pie! Good 'un, bad 'un, bad 'un, good 'un Lovely, horrid, horrid, lovely Based on these figures, we're making five barrels for every three of theirs! Keep it up, everypony! We're back in this! Come on, brother, we've gotta pick up the pace! Right, double the power! We gotta try something else! I've got it, brother of mine.
Well done, Flam! We're at top productivity! C'mon, Rainbow Dash, keep grinding! We don't have time for quality control, if we wanna win this thing! Get back, you! One bad apple spoils the bunch! Applejack, help me! There's no point in winnin' if we cheat! We'll just have to work harder! C'mon, everypony! All right then, double time! Time's up! I'm proud of you, Applejack.
Integrity like that, will always be rewarded.
Flim and Flam win! We lost? Too bad, Apples.
Guess you'll just have to find a new line of work that doesn't match your names quite so perfectly.
Now should we tear down all these tacky old buildings and put up new ones, brother? I don't see why not, brother.
After all, this isn't Sweet Apple Acres anymore.
How about 'Flim Flam Fields'? I ought to press you into jerk cider! No, Rainbow Dash.
A deal's a deal.
Congratulations to y'all.
The cider business in Ponyville is yours.
C'mon, Apples.
Let's go pack up our things.
Fear not, everypony.
There's more than enough cider to go around.
Go ahead, everypony.
Go on, y'all.
It's okay.
Drink up, Ponyville! Down the hatch! I can't get the taste off my tongue! Mine's got rocks in it.
I wouldn't pay one cent for this dreck! You wouldn't pay even one cent? No! How about two cups for one cent? No! Two bits for a barrel? No! It looks like we've encountered a slight problem here, in Ponyville.
Nopony wants our product.
Next town? Next town.
- Let's go, Flim! - Let's go, Flam! They're gone.
That means Sweet Apple Acres is still in business! Plus we can have high quality Apple family cider! Because of this silly competition we've made enough of our cider for the whole town! "Dear Princess Celestia" "I wanted to share my thoughts with you.
" "I didn't learn anythin'! I was right all along!" "If you take your time to do things the right way, your work will speak for itself.
" "Sure, I could tell you I learned something about how my friends are always there to help me" "and I can count on them no matter what" "but truth is, I knew that already too.
