Too Many Pinkie Pies

Try again, Twi.
You can do it.
Phew! This spell's a toughie.
But I feel lucky this time.
One, two One, two - Hi! Pinkie, why'd you do that?! 'Cause hugs are funeriffic! Especially when you throw one around a friend.
Whatcha doin'? Trying to turn that apple into an orange! But you kind of threw her aim off.
Whee! What a cute orange birdie! Do me next, Twilight! Do me! Do me! Ooh! Rarity, wanna see Twilight turn me into an orange? It's gonna be funna-fun-fun! As fun as creating an haute-couture ensemble that I just finished making? Delightful, no? This is terrible! I admit it's perhaps not my finest work, but I-- You had total, awesome, amazing fun, and I missed out on it?! Wait.
What if there's more awesome, amazing fun with friends happening somewhere in Ponyville right now that I'm missing out on too?! We weren't gonna turn her into an orange.
I swear! Hey, Rainbow Dash.
Whatcha doin'? This punk cloud got so heavy, it's making fog.
Figure I'll thin this bad boy out so it floats back up.
Ooh! Fun! Gotta go! Thanks, Pinkie? Hey, Applejack.
That looks like fun.
Can I join you? Whee! Next time, I'll pull you.
Fluttershy! There There you There you are doing doing anything doing anything fun? Not especially.
Oh, good.
Fun is hard! Season 3 | Episode 3 Too Many Pinkie Pies Fr.
com Feeling better, Pinkie? Abso-tutely-lutely! Thanks for letting me rest in your butterfly grove while I get my Pinkie strength back.
What are friends for? That's just the thing! I've got so many wonderful friends having fun in every last corner of Ponyville I can't figure out how to keep up with it all.
It's driving me even more coco-loco than usual! I can promise to not do anything fun at all if that would help.
You are such a good friend.
There you are, Pinkie.
Been looking everywhere for you, girl.
Been looking everywhere for you, girl.
- Hey, Pinkie.
Got something fun planned this afternoon.
Thought you might wanna know about it.
Well, I'll be an apple crisp.
I'm here for the same reason! This is perfect! Everyone will now bring their fun to me.
This will solve everything! Why didn't I think of that? Actually, what I meant is after I'm done whipping up today's weather, I'll be chilling by the lake catching some rays.
- Wanna hang? - I am so there! And my family's having a barn raising this afternoon at Sweet Apple Acres.
And I'm also so there! Whee! Whee! But that's when I'll be at the swimming hole.
Oh, well.
Doesn't matter.
Whichever one you choose is okay with me.
Me too.
Choose? One two Pinkie! What in the wide-wide world of Equestria are you doing now? Timing myself galloping back and forth between the swimming hole and Sweet Apple Acres.
I'm trying to cut down my time so Rainbow Dash dives off the swing, I can get to Sweet Apple Acres to help with the barn raising, and then be back in time to see Rainbow Dash hit the water after doing a double flip.
If I can cut my time by only 20 minutes, I'm good.
Oh, Pinkie.
I'm afraid no matter how hard you try, the only way to pull something like that off is if there's more of you to go around.
That's it, Twilight! The legend of the Mirror Pool! The legend of the who-what now? Pinkie! I'm familiar with loads of legends, and I never heard of-- Does this mean practice is over? Of course not.
Back to work.
Seems like hardly anypony's been here in ages.
I hope I'm remembering the rhymes right from my nana Pinkie story.
Where the brambles are thickest, there you will find huh a pond beyond the most twisted of vines.
Who's there?! I heard a voice! Oh.
It was me.
Ouch! Oh! Stop scratching me up, brambles! The Mirror Pool! Oh, and there's that voice again.
Ah, Pinkie.
You have got to stop talking to yourself.
Starting now.
And into her own reflection she stared, huh yearning for one whose reflection she shared and solemnly sweared not to be scared at the prospect of being doubly mared! Whee-hee! Wow.
The legend is true.
It really worked! Okay, wait, I promised not to talk to myself anymore.
I should say something to her.
Or would that still be talking to myself? Excuse me, me? Can I have word with you? Uh, I mean, me? Listen, I can see you're having lots of fun, but-- Fun! Did somebody say 'fun'? Where? Where? - I did, over here.
I thought someone said something about fun.
Where is it? Over here? Over here? I don't see it.
Where is it? Where is it? Oh, calm yourself.
There's loads of fun to be had in Ponyville with my girls.
Trot on over back to Ponyville with me, and I'll tell ya all about them.
And then there's Rarity.
She's the one with all the fancy clothes and ribbons and stuff.
I'm thinking she can make us all matching t-shirts that say 'team Pinkie' and-- Is this Ponyville? Where's the fun? Where's the fun? Uh, well, let's see.
Applejack's having a barn raising at-- It's thataway! Wait! Come back! Don't forget to meet me back here to tell me everything about everything.
Like I was there myself.
Because I'm you and and you're me, and-- Oh my gosh! This is the greatest plan ever!! Now, off to double my fun! Let's rock this pool, ponies! Coming in, Dashy? The water's great.
It's totally wet and everything.
I don't know.
Cloud busting was tougher work than usual, today.
I'm kind of exhausted.
That's fine.
You relax.
At least we'll still be together.
Glad you made it, Pinkie.
I thought you maybe went to Applejack's, instead.
- I did.
The Barn up yet? I have no idea.
But I thought you said you were just at Applejack's.
Actually, I'm probably still on my way there now! Whee! Oh, Pinkie Pie.
I'm so glad you wandered by.
I know I promised not to have any fun today, but I couldn't help myself.
All of my critter friends wanted a picnic, and I couldn't disappoint them.
Come join us.
We have plenty of hay juice and marmalade to go around.
Don't we, critters? Wait! That sounds super fun! But Applejohn sounds super fun too! And-- and-- I can't do one without missing out on the other! Who's Applejohn? Two fun things at once! But which-- which-- Can't decide! Trouble breathing! Walls closing in! Walls? But we're outside.
Was it something I said? Yes! So, you see, that's how I'm able to have fun in two places at once.
Duplicates of you, huh? Yeah, sure, Pinkie.
Look, I was just gearing up to catch some Z's.
So uh Gotcha! I'll have the rest of my fun very quietly.
How'd you do that? Just trying to show a little consideration for my sleepy friend.
Ooh! Ooh! Gotta run! Looks like I'm trying to get my attention.
- Excuse me.
- And me.
Ooh! Ooh! Tell me all about it.
Did they pull the walls of the barn up slooow or fast? Maybe slow to medium-fast? Somewhere in that range? Ooh! Did you get ice cream? What kinds did they have? Banana brickle? I didn't make it! I was on my way there, and then Fluttershutter-- Fluttershy.
Yeah! Her! She offered something else fun for me to do.
A picnic! With cute little animals.
How could you say no to that? That's what I'm saying! Then I would have missed the super fun thing with Applesauce! Applejack.
So I didn't do anything fun at all! Oh, my poor, poor me.
There, there.
Tell me what.
We just need a couple more Pinkie Pies.
- Easy-peasy.
- Really? Come on.
Would I lie to me? And solemnly sweared not to be scared at the prospect of being doubly mared.
Look! A double me! I think you mean a double-double me? Plus another double-double me, which makes two double-double me's, or a double-double-double me, if you will.
Did somebody say 'fun'? Where? Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun! Now Applejack, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy are covered plus one extra Pinkie Pie in case we get an extra invite from somepony else.
Perfect! Okay, let's go! And solemnly sweared not to be scared, at the prospect of being doubly mared! Okay, good enough.
Pinkie Pies, moving out-- not to be scared, at the prospect of being doubly mared! What in the name of pink?! Knock it off! To Ponyville, everyone! Follow me! Yes, it's fun there.
Okay, between the bunch of us, we should have every nook and cranny of fun in Ponyville covered, at all times.
An unprecedented and massive undertaking! But first, a pop quiz on the names I taught you! Applejack! Fluttershy! Pinkie Pie! Excellent! Okay, let's get on with this, folks.
Fan out on three.
One-- Eh, good enough.
What the-- Wow! Pinkie Pie wasn't kidding about the duplicates! Except now there's triplicates and quadruplicates! Dash is gonna love this! If I push her around on this floaty thing, it'll be fun, and relaxing! Uh oh No more Pinkies! I can't take it! Gosh, uh I wonder what fun they're having raising the barn at Applejack's right now! Maybe I'd better go check! Oh, phew! Looks like I haven't missed a thing! I wanna know right now where all you Pinkies came from so I can find out who's responsible for y'all ruinin' our barn raisin'! Uh, you look pretty busy right now, so maybe we should talk a little later? Y'all come back here and clean up after yourselves this instant! Oh no, what have I done, what have I done?! My poor friends Okay, everypony, please, calm down! Calm down?! I have just had a Pinkie hurricane raging through my shop! And they trashed our critter picnic! Please, everypony, hang on while I try to figure something out! Come on, Spike.
I've gotta try to remember the name of that legend she mentioned.
Ah, here it is! "The legend of the Mirror Pond".
It describes a spell I can use to send them back where they came from! That's perfect, let's go! But there's a catch.
If I can't figure out which one's the real Pinkie, I might send her back by mistake! Well, we'll just have to figure out who the real one is then.
Shouldn't be too hard.
Does anypony here know how we can tell the real Pinkie from all the rest of them? Twilight! I have to talk to you, I need your help! Excuse me, whoever you are, but I'm not talking to any of you Pinkies unless you're the real Pinkie.
Oh, but, I am the real Pinkie! No you're not, I'm the real Pinkie! I'm the real Pinkie! I'm the real Pinkie! - No, I'm the real Pinkie! I'm the real Pinkie! I'm the real Pinkie! - No, I'm the real Pinkie! I'm the real Pinkie! How in tarnation are we supposed to tell which is the real Pinkie? I have no idea.
Me either.
We've all got the same adorable tails, we've all got the same adorable manes, we've all got the same adorable hooves! Which one of us is the real Pinkie?! I haven't the slightest clue! And if I can't tell us apart who can? Ugh, this is hopeless! Maybe that one's the real Pinkie.
The real Pinkie Pie never sat that long in one place for her whole life! I'm gonna go ask.
Of course she's gonna say she's the real Pinkie! They all do! You're wasting your time.
So, lemme guess.
You're the real Pinkie Pie.
Heck if I know! Could be any one of us, if you ask me.
And if I said I was the real Pinkie, you wouldn't even believe me anyway.
So just leave me alone.
I've got some important poking around with my hoof to do.
Oh Spike, how're we gonna do this? I can't risk sending the real Pinkie back into the pond! I miss the real Pinkie.
I bet she misses you too.
Bet she'd do just about anything to get to be with her friends again.
Hey, hey! What if you gave them a test? Pick something really hard for a Pinkie to do, something not fun at all! Any Pinkie that can't do it goes back into the pond.
But whoever wants to stay the most, that must be the real Pinkie! You know, that's not a bad idea.
This is great! If I pass, I get to be with my friends again! But what if I don't pass? What if I'm not the real Pinkie Pie?! Stupid magic mirror water! This is all your fault! And mine.
Hey, Twilight! I've been looking all over for you ponies.
What are you all doing here? Fluttershy spoke with the woodland critters, and they've agreed to take us into their home 'til the Pinkie storm dies down.
You guys, we're gonna fix this.
And I know exactly how.
Are we gonna lose our real Pinkie Pie? I don't think so.
Now come along.
I've already got Applejack and her family rounding up all the Pinkies.
Hyah, Pinkies, hyah! Ooh, they wanna play chase! This is fun, too! Oh, give it a rest.
Welcome, Pinkies, welcome.
Please have a seat and make yourselves comfortable.
Okay, I suppose you can't be comfortable staying in one place, but have a seat anyway.
Sit down! Better.
Now, I suppose you're all wondering why I've gathered you all here today.
For fun? No, just the opposite, actually.
Wait up, I got one more! I found this one poking at the ground with her hoof and drawing frowny faces.
Have her come sit with the others.
Pinkies, you've been brought here to take a test.
Don't worry, it's a simple test.
About as simple as they come.
And whoever passes gets to stay.
Curtain, please.
The test will be watching paint dry! On your mark, get set, go! Whoa, this is so exciting! Okay, maybe not that exciting.
Oh, hey, look at the birdie! Watch me bounce and touch the ceiling! Is that is that a frog crossed with an orange? - Cool! - Where? Look what I can do with my hooves! Betcha can't make a face crazier than this! I can't take it any more! Somepony's making balloon animals! What? Where? Pinkie, you can look away now.
- I passed? - You passed.
You're the only Pinkie who kept staring at the wall.
I had to, I just had to.
I couldn't leave my friends, I just couldn't.
But I guess sometimes I will have to choose between them.
I knew you'd be up to the challenge.
I'm me! I'm me! I'm meeee!! Or am I? Yeah, I'm pretty sure I am.
Dear Princess Celestia, it's great to have fun, but it's even greater to have great friends.
And having lots of friends means that you sometimes have to make choices as to who you spend your time with.
But that's okay, because good friends will always give you lots of opportunities to have fun.
So even if you're missing out, it's never for long.
Respectfully yours, Pinkie Pie.
Hi Pinkie Pie, we were thinking we should go out and celebrate.
You up for some wheelbarrow races? Or I could take everypony on a cloud ride! I could throw a party with punch and zesty cucumber sandwiches! Ooh! You wanna know exactly what I feel like doing right now? That looks like fun.
