Sleepless in Ponyville

Nice moves, kid.
Nice moves? Rainbow Dash thinks I've got-- nice moves! Season 3 | Episode 6 Sleepless in Ponyville then, all of a sudden, I'm airborne! And Rainbow Dash looks over, and is like "Nice moves, kid".
She really said that? I mean, it's like she practically told me she wanted to take me under her wing, teach me everything she knows, and become like my big sister! I dunno about all that.
It was a really nice compliment and all, but I know, I know.
But all that stuff I said could happen, right? - Sure - Absolutely.
I just need to find a way to spend some time with her, y'know, so she can see more of my awesomeness! Applejack and I are supposed to be camping up at Winsome Falls this weekend.
Maybe I could get my big sis to invite Rainbow Dash, and then you could come too! - Really? - Sure! I wanna go Well, duh of course you can go! And I'll get Rarity to come too! Rarity loves camping! I despise camping! All of that nature.
Applejack's going with her little sister! But, y'know, if you don't wanna spend time with me All right! Ooh! Of course, I will need to find an outfit more appropriate for 'roughing it'.
See? Told you she'd wanna go.
- You packed bug spray? - Yup.
- You got the canteens? - Yup.
Looks like we're all set then.
Hey! Gee Rarity, did you remember to pack? Well, let's see who gets the last laugh when you're absolutely desparate to curl your lashes, and you realize you didn't bring your eyelash curler.
Well, looks like we're all set now.
But what about Rainbow Dash? Isn't Rainbow Dash coming? 'Course she is, sugarcube.
She's gonna meet us up at our first campsite.
Alright, y'all, let's move 'em out! Oh, are we there yet? The last thousand times you asked that, the answer was no.
This time, it's actually yes.
There's Rainbow Dash up there right now.
Alright, Scootaloo, just play it cool.
Hey, Rai-- Hey, Rainbow Dash! What's up? What took you guys so long? Well, some of us didn't pack as light as the others.
So we were slowed down a bit.
Looks like you'll be sharing a tent with me, huh? If that's okay with you.
Sure! As long as you don't snore.
You don't snore, do you? Nope.
No way.
Not me! Never snored a day or a night in my life.
Then you and I are gonna get along just fine.
You've got to be kidding me Sweetie Belle, do be a dear and see if you can find some fresh flowers for my bedside vase.
Hey, Scootaloo, do be a sweetheart and see if you can gather some firewood.
Seriously though.
Can you get us some wood for the fire? Of course! Okay, everybody get comfortable.
'Cause I'm about to tell you the best story you ever heard.
Is it about the time when Rarity had wings, and then they got ruined, and then you saved her from plummeting to her doom? Okay, maybe it's the second best story you ever heard.
But probably still the scariest.
You like scary stories, right? It all happened on a night, just like this one.
In a forest, just like this.
and then, the olden pony asked, "Who's got my rusty horseshoe?" Not me! You do! Something in my throat.
I wasn't scared at all! Good story! Knew you wouldn't be scared.
The way you jumped that cart the other day you were like me, fearless.
Don't worry, Rarity is here to keep you safe and sound.
Think it's about time for me to hit the straw.
Don't you worry, little sis.
There's no 'olden pony' in our tent.
That sure was funny, wasn't it! How they were all afraid of the olden pony but not me! That's because you're tough, just like I was when I was your age! I'm hitting the sack.
Come in whenever you feel like it.
It's, it's nothing Just my imagination And that isn't the thundering stamp of the olden pony I-Is anyone out there? Who's got my rusty horseshoe? Who's got my rusty horseshoe? Rainbow Da--? You do! What's that noise? Is there a bug in here? I dunno about you, but I slept like a filly.
Best night ever! Glad you're rested up, because we've got a long trek ahead.
Totally gonna be worth it when we get to Winsome Falls.
Yeah Totally Am I sweating? I think I'm sweating! But it's absolutely worth it to get to spend time with my little sister.
It just feels like this cart is getting heavier all the time! I don't care if that cart is heavy as a pack of mules.
If we don't get a move on, it'll be dark before we get to the campsite! Dark?! I'll just ride ahead to make sure the path is clear.
Now we don't wanna be out here after dark, right? Doesn't matter to me.
Well, y'know it's for the scaredy-ponies.
Don't fall asleep now I've got to get to that campsite before dark Don't come this way! Take the path! It's aheh way better than going through the bushes.
You're more nervous than a worm in an apple on cider making day.
What gives, Scootaloo? Nothing! Just thought I heard something.
You sure you're okay? 'Cause you seem a little jumpy.
Just getting my exercise! You know how important it is to stretch out those hindquarters every so often! Uh, do you need a little help? That's so sweet, thank you.
What are friends for? No need for tents tonight, y'all.
We'll just take shelter in that cave.
All right! A deep, dark cave! Perfect for the story I've got for tonight.
All we need is a campfire, and we're good to go.
Uh, of course I'll be right back with loads of firewood from the deep, dark, not-scary-at-all forest! Thanks! Okay.
I can do this.
On the count of three, I get those branches.
One two three! Here, branches branches branches It's colder than a timberwolf's toenail.
Where's that Scootaloo? Here you go! That's it? It's all I could find, 'cause, y'know there aren't that many trees around here! It's all we need.
Why don't you sit with Rainbow Dash for a while? Now, where was I? Oh yeah! The scary part Hey, I have an idea! How about I tell tonight's story? Alright, just make sure it's a horrible one.
There once was a really really nice pony who lived in a bright and sunny land, where there are rainbows every day, and lots and lots of happy friends, and-- No offense, but, it's not a real campfire story unless somepony's shaking.
I've been told that these very woods are haunted by the headless horse! It gallops only at night.
If he doesn't have a head, then how in tarnation does this pony know where it's goin'? It's headless, not brainless.
looking for little lost ponies.
So where is its brain? Fear was dripping from the air and they were never heard from ever again! Never? Never.
Don't worry, you'll be safe with me tonight.
- It's not time for bed yet, is it? - 'Fraid so, Scootaloo.
Uh, but we haven't sung any campfire songs yet! You don't have to ask me twice! Ninety-nine buckets of oats on the wall, ninety-nine buckets of oats! Take one down, pass it around, you got eighty-one buckets of oats on the wall! Forty-one buckets of oats! Take one down, pass it around, you got forty buckets of oats on the wall! Take one down, pass it around, you've got zero buckets of oats on the waaaallll!! - Good night, y'all.
- Good night, y'all.
Sleep tight.
Oh, just one more song! Anyone? How about a dance contest? I know you love to cut a rug, so how 'bout we mess up a cave floor? I have a brilliant idea! Hide and seek, who's with me? Maybe tomorrow.
Seems like you don't really wanna go to sleep tonight.
Is there some reason why? Pfft, of course not! I just love camping and hanging out with Rainbow Dash so much that I don't wanna waste a single minute with sleep! Silly sleep.
That's cool and all, Scoot.
But this pony needs her shut-eye and she needs it now! This is so unfair I'm falling asleep If the headless horse catches me, I'm never gonna be heard from again! And I wanna be heard from! It's all over! A warm welcome to you, Scootaloo.
Princess Luna! I thought you were the headless horse! You were mistaken, but I hope not disappointed.
You are so, so much better than the headless horse! But what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be in Canterlot? I am the princess of the night.
Thus it is my duty to come into your dreams.
Oh yeah wait.
This is just a dream? But it feels so real! I assure you that you are asleep.
But when you awake, the thing that frightens you most will still exist.
The headless horse? Is the headless horse really what frightens you the most? I'm afraid Rainbow Dash will find out I'm not as tough as she thinks I am.
Everypony has fears, Scootaloo.
Everypony must face them in their own way.
But they must be faced, or the nightmares will continue.
Face your fears! Princess Luna?! It was just a dream.
But the headless horse isn't! Rainbow Dash said it lives here, in these very woods! It's the wicked whinny of the headless horse! So, it's a horse without a head which means it doesn't have a mouth and if it doesn't have a mouth, then it's not a horsey pony but a horse but still it's a horse without a head! Hello?! Is anyone out there? Anyone except the headless horse? Heellllp! I gotcha! Rainbow Dash! Is that you? Thank you, thank you! What were you doing out here in the middle of the night?! It is time for you to face your real fear, Scootaloo! I'm so, so sorry, Rainbow Dash, I just wanted you to hang out with me and see how cool I was so you'd take me under your wing and teach me everything you know and become like my big sister! But then you started telling those spooky stories and I got scared! I thought I heard the headless horse so I ran out here by myself, and Well, I guess you know the rest.
Hey, I'm gonna tell you something, but if you ever tell anypony else, I'm gonna deny it.
First time I heard those stories I was scared too.
- You were? - Sure! I mean, I got over it because I realized pretty quick that if there was such thing as a headless horse, I could totally take it on! So, you're looking for somepony to take you under their wing, huh? Yeah, I might be up for something like that.
Really? As long as you don't go falling into any more rivers in the middle of the night.
It's a deal.
I call sister teams! Last pair to make it to the falls is a mouldy carrot! Ugh, if you insist.
It is so on! They think they can beat the two of us? Who's got my rusty horseshoe? Here it is, for pony's sake.
Now take it and stop all your moaning.
Thank you, and have a nice day.
