My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s02e22 Episode Script

Hurricane Fluttershy

Calling all pegasus ponies! Meeting tonight! Mandatory meeting for all Ponyville pegasi.
Library tonight.
Be cool or be mule.
No offense.
None taken.
All right.
Go on in.
Find a seat.
Ugh You too, Fluttershy.
Come on, let's go.
Every living thing depends on the life-giving nourishment of rainwater and it is up to Cloudsdale to provide rain-filled clouds to every corner of Equestria.
"But how" one pony might ask "does Cloudsdale gather all this extra water?" Tornado power! That's right, pegasi-driven tornado power.
A team of pegasi combine their wingpower to create a jumbo tornado powerful enough to pull water out of the local reservoir and funnel it all the way up to Cloudsdale.
Remember, pegasi.
Your jumbo tornado must reach a minimum of 800 wingpower to lift that water up to Cloudsdale.
So the next time you're wondering "Where does all that extra rainwater come from?" just rememmmbuuuugh Uh intermission? So, here's the scoop.
Cloudsdale has chosen our own highland reservoir as the source of the rainwater they need for all of Equestria.
And you know what that means.
It's means it's up to Ponyville's pegasi to bring that water up to Cloudsdale.
Not only that, but Spitfire, captain of the Wonderbolts will be here to oversee the water transfer and record our top tornado windspeed.
Now, last year Fillydelphia broke the windspeed record with the top speed of 910 wingpower.
But I think we can do better.
I think we can get a top speed over a thousand.
If each and every pony trains and trains hard to get their wingpower numbers up.
That coughing better be from the popcorn, Colonel Thunderlane.
Nopony's getting sick on my watch.
So, are we gonna train hard? YEAH! Are we gonna be strong? YEAH! Are we gonna be fast? YEAH! Record-smashing fast? Yeeeah! Who's with me?! Fluttershy.
Stretch those glutes, Flitter.
Nice flexibility, Cloud Chaser.
A little too much flexibility, Blossomforth.
Uh, somepony give Blossomforth a hoof.
Let's see some faster trotting, Thunderlane.
Good pace, Silver Speed.
Keep it up! We're gonna need all the wingpower we can get to break that record.
Yeeeah! Good work, everypony! Everypony except Fluttershy.
Fluttershy! I know you're in there! You're avoiding tornado duty and I wanna know why.
Fluttershy, open Achoo.
Hi, Rainbow Dash.
Fluttershy, what happened to you? Oh, I I think I have the pony pox.
I'm sorry.
I really, really wanted to come to training day toda but this pony pox has really knocked me for a loop.
Oh, you poor thing.
You know, there's only one cure for pony pox.
I know.
Plenty of be Cold water! Those pony pox are clearing right up.
You know, all of a sudden I'm I'm starting to feel better.
Oh, I I'll just get out of these robes Ow! Oh.
My wing.
Oh, ow, it's hurt.
I guess I can't fly after all.
Messed up wing, huh? Stop horsing around, Fluttershy.
You've got a lot of training to do.
Come on now.
Let's going on.
Well You see Well Oh, Rainbow Dash! I just can't do it! I can't fly! What are you talking about? Just last week you went into that wicked nose dive to save that falling baby bird right before it hit the ground.
But that was different.
That was an emergency.
This whole tornado thing, it's more like a performance.
And you know how I hate performing in front of others.
Don't you remember flight camp? I couldn't gallop hard or fly fast.
Not with everypony looking at me.
It wasn't that bad.
You're right, Rainbow Dash.
It wasn't bad.
It was horrible! All the other foals used to tease me.
A lot! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can hardly fly! Oh, I just can't risk that sort of humiliation again.
Suck it up, Fluttershy! This is no time for I mean confidence or no confidence I'm gonna need every pegasus to break the record, including you.
I need every ounce of wingpower I can get.
Oh, I I don't think so, Rainbow Dash.
Thanks anyway.
I'll do it.
– You will? – I will.
– You're game? – I'm game.
ALRIGHT! What exactly does this machine do? This is an anemometer.
It measures your accelerative velocity and translates it into wingpower.
Thus gauging your cumulative H2O anti-gravitational potential.
Any other questions? Yeah! What exactly does this machine do? It tells you how fast you're flying and how strong your wings are.
Oh, okay.
Is that you again, Thunderlane? Please.
We need to have a germ-free environment.
It wasn't me.
It was Blossomforth.
Don't worry, Twilight.
Thunderlane's just cooking up an excuse to spend tornado day in bed.
Why don't you get over here and be our first test flyer, Thunderlane? We have 9.
3 wingpower.
Yeeeah! Not bad.
Not bad.
Now listen up! If each of you can get your numbers up to at least 10.
0 wingpower by the end of the week we'll no doubt set a new tornado speed record.
We'll be number one! YEAH! Impressive.
Fluttershy, your turn.
Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can hardly fly! – Tell her.
– No, you tell her.
No, you.
Um Great job, Fluttershy.
You measured a uh point five.
Point five? Isn't that, like like, less than one? Ow! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can hardly fly! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can hardly fly! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Wait! So some punks poked a little fun at you and you got stage fright.
Big deal! You aren't gonna go quit just because of that, are you? YE-E-ES! But I need you! I'm sorry, Rainbow Dash.
I just don't have the courage right now.
Aw, thank you, but I'm afraid a couple of little acorns won't solve my big flying problem.
I tried, but ooh, you should have seen those ponies laughing at me.
I know it's important to have confidence in myself.
Yes, yes, I do remember.
The river was swelling and you were scared Yes, I did tell you to never give up and to believe in yourself.
You're right, my friends.
I shouldn't give up.
I will get my confidence up and show everypony that I am a good flyer.
A great flyer! That's wonderful, Flitter.
Much better than yesterday.
This is crazy awesome! We're gonna smash that record! What did he say? Do I look like I speak Squirrel? What's that? TWO-POINT-THREE?! That has to be some kind of mistake.
I worked so hard.
Fluttershy, that's a huge improvement.
You did awesome, Fluttershy.
No, I didn't.
I thought I've gotten over my nerves, but they still got the best of me.
There's no way I'll fly with 10.
0 wingpower tomorrow.
So you won't fly with 10.
0 wingpower.
Every bit counts.
How would you feel if everypony else was flying with 10.
0 wingpower and you were flying with 2.
5? Actually, it was only 2.
3 and Ow! Well uh I'd feel um Exactly! Humiliated.
I'm sorry, Rainbow Dash.
I just can't do it.
It' okay, Rainbow Dash.
You still got plenty of wingpower for your tornado.
You'll be able to lift tons of water up to Cloudsdale.
If only there was a way to lift Fluttershy out of the dumps.
Are we ready to do this? Look! Lazy Thunderlane! Where is he? He's been trying to get out of tornado duty the whole time with his fake coughing and all.
Rumble, where's your lazy brother? He's got the feather flu.
He's down at Ponyville hospital.
But he's not the only one.
Let's see, with those eight sick pegasi out with the feather flu Oh no! Don't tell me we won't be able to break the windspeed record.
No Phew.
You might not have enough wingpower to create a tornado powerful enough to lift the water to Cloudsdale.
Well, should we pack up? No.
Of course not.
Forget the record.
Cloudsdale still needs water.
Okay, everypony! Let's give it all we've got! On the sound of the horn we take off.
You think they're gonna make it to 800 wingpower? I sure hope so.
Twilight! Fluttershy! What are you doing here? I figured if I couldn't help Rainbow Dash with the tornado the least I could do was offer moral support.
She could sure use it considering the eight pegasi are sick with the feather flu.
Oh no! That's terrible news! Are you okay? I'm fine.
Oh, you were so close to the 800 wingpower minimum.
I'm sorry, Rainbow Dash.
We've got to try again! But you pushed your crew to their limit already.
If you break apart again, somepony could get hurt.
You should quit.
It's not safe.
No! One more time.
I've gotta know we gave it our all.
If I'm going down, I'm going down flying.
Come on, ponies! Let's make this happen! Yeeeah! Okay, here we go.
Stay in position! Flap those wings! Faster! They fell apart right after this.
Oh, I'm too nervous to look.
Come on! Just a little harder! I can see the water trying to follow through! Fluttershy, they need you up there.
I won't make a difference! You can make a difference! My measly 2.
3 wingpower is still too little! It's stick at 795.
I don't know if they got any more in them.
Do it for Equestria! Do it for Rainbow Dash! Do it for yourself! It's moving! She's doing it! her past wingpower number! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can hardly fly! NO! What was that? I think it was Fluttershy.
She did it! She did it! They all did it! Whoa, girl, take it easy.
Wha What? Did we do it? Yeah.
We did it.
You did it! Great job, Fluttershy! That was awesome! Yeah.
We couldn't have done it without you.
Nice job, Rainbow Dash.
You may not have set a new record, but you showed a lotta guts.
Thanks, but if you wanna talk guts then you've gotta give it to my number one flyer: Fluttershy.
Let's hear it for Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy! Fluttershy can really fly! "Dear Princess Celestia.
" "Sometimes you can feel like what you have to offer" "is too little to make a difference.
" "But today I learned that everypony's contribution" "is important, no matter how small.
" "If you just keep your head high, do your best and believe in yourself" "anything can happen.
