My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s03e05 Episode Script

Magic Duel

May I help you, traveler? Something drew you to my shop something powerful.
Ah, you have a keen eye.
The Alicorn Amulet is one of the most mysterious and powerful of all the known magical charms.
I'm afraid this is far too dangerous.
Would you like that gift-wrapped? Season 3 | Episode 5 Magic Duel Don't be scared, little friends.
Twilight is wonderful with magic.
Anything happens to them, Twilight, so help me.
Aww, don't worry, Fluttershy, Twilight's magic has gotten a lot better since she accidentally crushed me and Applejack with a giant snowball.
Of course she's good with magic.
Twilight's great with magic.
I guess I just don't want my little friends to be scared Oh, oh, look how scared they are! I promise, Fluttershy, nothing bad will happen to them.
I know! Stop, stop! They can't take it! Twilight, that looks amazing! That's all for now, little ones.
Maybe we can practice again later, if Fluttershy says it's alright.
Your magic has really improved since we came to Ponyville, Twilight.
- Princess Celestia's gonna love it! - Thanks, Spike.
I have to be at my best when she arrives with the delegates from Saddle Arabia.
I can't believe she's trusting me with the entertainment.
Twilight! Come quick! It's an emergency! You beast! This shade of brown should only be used for accents! Come on, Applejack.
We've got to get her into a nice, soothing pink.
STAT! - What's going on here? - Well, well, well.
If it isn't Twilight Sparkle.
- Trixie! - What's she doing here? You call that great and powerful? - Oh! She's Rainbow Wobble, now! - Yeah! Good spell, oh Great and Powerful Trixie! You two! Quiet! - What happened? - Get off of me! Stop picking on my friends, Trixie! You and I have some unfinished business.
My magic's gotten better since I was here last.
And I'm going to prove it! Me and you.
A magic duel.
Winner stays, loser leaves Ponyville forever! Forget it! I'd never make a deal like that! Your choice.
Trixie, put him down.
Why are you doing this? Why? Because you humiliated me! After you showed me up with that Ursa Minor, I became a laughingstock! Everywhere I went I was laughed at and ostracized.
I even had to take a job on a rock farm just to earn a living! A rock farm! Hey! You're lucky a rock farm would take the likes of you! Now I want revenge! And I'll just keep casting spells 'til you agree.
Well? What do you say? Alright, Trixie.
Let's duel! Excellent! If I lose, I won't set hoof in Ponyville again.
But if you lose, you're the one banished from this one-horse town! Draw! Snips, Snails, step forward! What is it, oh Great and P-P-Powerful Trixie ? An age spell? But, how could you do an age spell? That's only for the highest level unicorns! Well, Twilight? Give up? Come on, Twilight.
You can do it! Trixie is the highest level unicorn! And now it's time for you to leave Ponyville! FOREVER! That's enough, Trixie! You proved your point, but you can't possibly expect Twilight to leave Ponyville! You fools.
She's already gone.
It's okay guys.
I'll figure something out.
Just take care of each other.
And keep an eye on Trixie.
There's something strange about her Twilight? It's impossible! How could Trixie know such advanced magic? Without Spike, I can't get a message to the Princess in Saddle Arabia, so who else do I know who understands strange and powerful magic? Your tale of woe upsets me so.
No wonder you're dour, it's an abuse of power! I don't know what to do, Zecora.
I feel like I've abandoned my friends.
But I can't take her on horn-to-horn.
If you train with me, so good you'll be, I'll show you the way to make sure she won't stay.
You'll train me in magic? But she was doing age spells, weather spells, you name it! When it comes to magic, it would be tragic if somepony licked me, especially Trixie.
You really think I can beat her? Okay, when do we start? You two! Hurry up with my throne.
And you, how long do I have to wait for my apple sauce facial? Forget it, Trixie.
I ain't doing nothin' 'til you let Twilight come home.
Okay, I'll do it, just make it stop! I thought I told you to dance! Trixie's cruel magic is ruining Ponyville.
Somepony has to help us! No noise, no sound, no din, no fuss, must interfere with your focus.
Unlearn what you have learned, only then can victory be earned.
Trixie is the highest level unicorn! There is much, much that I can teach, but the answer you need may still be out of reach.
I'm sorry, Zecora.
I'm trying my best, but I can't stop thinking about Trixie.
There was something different about her.
It's like she's gone from high and mighty to mean and nasty.
Your thinking needs a readjust.
Total concentration is a must.
This really doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere.
I hear you, Pinkie.
I can't find anything that describes the kind of magic Trixie's doin'.
There must be something! Twilight has every magic book there is! Um, I think I may have found something? Yes, it's time for us to consider our futures in this new Trixie-led Ponyville.
Um, this sounds an awful lot like Trixie's magic-- She wants me to grow apples with no peels! How the hay am I supposed to do that? Um, there's a picture here of that necklace-- It's called the Alicorn Amulet, and whoever wears it is blessed with untold-- Hey, everypony, look! This book has a picture of Trixie's necklace! It's called the Alicorn Amulet, and whoever wears it is blessed with untold powers! If you read a little further, you'll see-- Even though it provides great power, it also corrupts the user! Yes, but, um, you can't-- You can't just take the Alicorn Amulet off her neck.
It has a magical lock! Trixie's the only pony who can take it off! Maybe-- We need to get this information to Twilight.
- She'll know what to do.
- But, how-- If any of us try to leave, Trixie's magical forcefield will tell her! - Maybe we should-- - I've got it! Trying to sneak past the forcefield would be impossible without help.
But I know who's got the goods to get into those woods! - Fluttershy! -What?! What do you say, Fluttershy? Can you handle the mission? No! I'll crack under the pressure, I'll snap like a twig! Perfect! Fluttershy'll sneak out of Ponyville and find Twilight.
But I-- I-- Okay.
I know just the design for a dangerous mission outfit! Pull, you fools! Somepony set off the magic forcefield, and Trixie intends to punish them! But, wouldn't it be faster if we had some wheels?! The Great and Powerful Trixie doesn't trust wheels.
Now pull faster! I'm telling ya, Snips, she's getting weirder and weirder! Stop! You there! What are you doing?! Why is she so mean to us? Yeah! I miss the days when she was just a fraud! Oh oh dear! Rarity's dangerous mission outfit is ruined! Guess we'd better go back! Okay, okay, you're right, I need to be brave and find Twilight.
Oh! You found her? She's in the Everfree Forest?! Oh, this is me being brave! I wanna be brave at home, locked in my closet, with my teddy bear! I can't believe I didn't recognize the Alicorn Amulet! The more she uses it, the more it will corrupt her! But how am I supposed to beat that amulet? My magic's not good enough! Twilight Sparkle, much work have you done.
You learned all of my lessons, all but one.
If Trixie's tricks have you in a fix, you must mix your magic and use the six.
Mix your magic, use the six mix your magic, use the six! Use the six, that's it! Zecora, you're a genius! Now I need to get you back inside Ponyville, Fluttershy.
This better not be another false alarm, or the Great and Powerful Trixie will-- You! What's the matter, Twilight Sparkle? Not enjoying your exile? I know about the Alicorn Amulet.
I know you cheated.
Cheated? Moi? Yeah.
And I thought you might wanna see what a real magical amulet looks like.
Zecora gave it to me.
It's from beyond the Everfree Forest, and it's way more powerful than your measly Alicorn Amulet! Ha! Nothing's more powerful than the Alicorn Amulet! And nopony's more powerful than the Great and Powerful Trixie! Care to put your amulet where your mouth is? How about another duel? Why should I? I already beat you.
That's up to you! But I guess you'll never see the totally awesome magic from beyond the Everfree Forest Come on, Zecora.
Wait! Okay, okay, you're on! A second duel.
Let's start with a simple age spell, shall we? Let's.
Snips, Snails.
An oldie, but a goodie.
Now let's see what your little charm can do.
No problem.
Um, Applejack, Rarity? Could you help me, please? So you can do an age spell, big deal.
That's that's impossible! That's nothing! How did you-- Duplication spell.
Ever seen one pony play ten instruments? This-- just can't be! Ooh, one more.
I can turn a mare into a stallion.
Well, Trixie, looks like my amulet is more powerful than yours.
Hey! Give it back! With this amulet, I shall now rule all of Equestria! Witness, my subjects, gaze upon an ever greater and powerfuler Trixie! I don't need that old Alicorn Amulet.
I have this! Stop it! Tha-that tickles! Tickles? That was supposed to make you writhe in agony! This amulet is defective! Give mine back! Sorry.
This is going back into hiding where it belongs.
By the way, Trixie, the amulet around your neck? It's one of Zecora's doorstops.
But how did you do those spells? Nopony can do those spells! You're right.
Not even me.
Zecora taught me so much about magic while I was in exile.
She even taught me when not to use it.
My magic alone wasn't powerful enough to take on the Alicorn Amulet head to head, so I needed to use a different kind of magic the magic of friendship.
I also knew that the only pony who could get the amulet off your neck was you.
But what about the pony with the ten instruments? That's not magic, that was just Pinkie Pie.
Trixie? It's the least I could do.
I treated you and your friends so horribly when I was wearing that Alicorn Amulet I just couldn't control myself.
You can forgive me, can't you? - Sure.
- Oh, great.
Don't you think the Great and Apologetic Trixie is the most magnificent humble pony you have ever seen?
