My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s04e02 Episode Script

Princess Twilight Sparkle (2)

It's Princess Luna and Princess Celestia.
They're missing! The Everfree Forest is… invading? I think I'm starting to get a pretty good idea of who we're up against.
I'm reformed, don't you remember? Why don't you ask your zebra friend? You can turn the potion from purple to white.
You may see why the sky is day and night.
Princess Luna! There can only be one princess in Equestria! And that princess… WILL BE ME! Luna! Think of how long you were banished to the moon.
You give us no choice but to send you back there if you don't stop.
Luna! I will not fight you! You must lower the moon! It is your duty! Luna… I am Nightmare Moon.
I have but one royal duty now.
TO DESTROY YOU! And where do you think you're going? Celestia!!! No… Why would Luna do this? Why now? You're alright… You're alright! Princess Celestia? Oh dear sister.
I'm sorry, but you have given me no choice but to use this! Are those… the Elements of Harmony? But that's how they looked in… the past… This is the night you banished her.
NOOOOOO! Why are you all looking at me like that? It's just… you were mumbling to yourself… Oh, and don't forget the uncontrollable sobbing! We were really worried about you.
I for one found it delightful! Sort of a one-pony theatre piece, if you will.
You should really consider taking it on the road.
Did you find out whose rump we need to kick and where we can find them? I saw something from a long time ago but it didn't explain what's happening now.
Perhaps further back still are the answers you seek.
Another sip of the potion will give you a peek.
You sure about this? Oh, I do hope she breaks into a song this time.
This is so much fun! How about a game of "Pin-a-tail-on-the-pony"? Playtime is over for you, Discord.
Oh, I doubt that.
Hungry? Suit yourselves.
Oh? What have you got there? The Elements of Harmony! With them we shall defeat you! This must be when they turned Discord into stone.
You should see yourselves right now.
Expressions on your face.
So intense, so sure of yourselves.
Hilarious! The Tree of Harmony! The Tree of Harmony? My cutiemark! Are you sure? We have managed to discover the only means by which we can defeat Discord and free the citizens of Equestria.
Even without these elements, the Tree of Harmony will possess a powerful magic.
As long as that magic remains, it will continue to control and contain all that grows here.
So, what'd you find out? I still don't know what happened to Princess Luna and Princess Celestia.
But I think I know why the Everfree Forest is acting this way.
Something's happened to the Tree of Harmony.
The Tree of what now? It's where Princess Luna and Princess Celestia found the Elements.
I think it's in danger.
Alright then, let's go save a… tree! Where is it exactly? I think it's in… THERE! I'm going to need more popcorn! Seems like only yesterday we were heading into these woods to find the Elements of Harmony.
Seems like only yesterday I was foolish enough to think I should go after them on my own.
I don't know what we are going to face in there, but whatever it is - I know we need to face it together! We can use those to cross.
A crocodile! Run for your lives! That was close.
A little too close, if you ask me.
You sure you're alright? I'm fine, I just can't seem to get these new wings to do what I want them to do when I want it them to do it.
You'll figure it out eventually.
Eventuall isn't soon enough.
You had been having an awful lot of trouble with those things and, well, who knows what else is gonna come after us.
You know, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea for Twilight to come back to Ponyville and let us look for the Tree of Harmony without her.
What? Why? For starters, you just about got eaten by a crocodilly.
We all did.
He wasn't after just me.
Sure but, well, the rest of us aren't princesses.
What's that got to do with anything? Princess Celestia and Princess Luna are gone.
If something happened to you.
I just don't think Equestria can risk losing another princess.
Applejack does make a valid point.
Even if we manage to save the Tree of Harmony, it wouldn't necesserily mean Princess Celestia and Princess Luna will return.
Equestria will need somepony to lead in their absence.
But the Tree of Harmony! I'm the only one who has seen it and knows what it looks like.
Huge tree? Cutiemarks on the trunk? Probably being attacked by something hideously awful? Yeah? I'm pretty sure we'll know it when we see it.
All of you feel this way? Feel like I shouldn't be here? It is probably for the best.
HEEELP! HEEELP! Discord! You're welcome! No luck finding your tree? We ran into some trouble and my friends decided it would be best if I return to Ponyville while they continue the search.
Equestria will need me if Princess Celestia and Princess Luna don't return.
I'm just surprised that you agreed to their plan.
I never thought you'd be the kind of pony who would think she was better than everypony else.
I don't think I'm better than anypony.
Well, how silly of me to assume that you'd think that.
All you did was: chose to keep your precious princess self out of harm's way while your friends thrust themselves wide into it.
I'm sure you'll all be the best of pals again when they return from their terrifying yet deeply bonding experience that they're having without you.
I never should've agreed to come back here.
C'mon Twilight, Discord may be reformed but he's not that reformed.
He's just trying to get under your skin.
Well, it's working! Anypony else starting to think this is a lost cause? We're almost at Celestia and Luna's old castle.
Maybe whatever Twilight saw when she took that crazy potion wasn't real? Maybe there's no tree of harmony? Maybe… Maybe it's right down there.
It can't be! How are we supposed to get to it? Take the stairs, silly! Are we there yet? I don't know where we are.
We're lost! I never should've left my friends.
We can't just give up.
Maybe if I get up there I'l be able to spot them.
Well, what do you know… Twilight? I think it's dying.
So let's save it already.
Nice try.
Valiant efforts on both your parts, but the tree remains in jeopardy.
And I suppose you got a better idea? That's what I thought.
I know who would know what to do! But we sent her home… It was your idea, Applejack! We all agreed it was the best thing, Rainbow Dash.
We were trying to protect her.
Twilight! Trouble! Help! Listen here, you rabid rhododendrons! You mess with one of us — you mess with all of us! Up here! Come and get me! Don't forget about me! Tada! I sure am glad you came looking for us.
Not as glad as I am that you found me.
The truth of it is, Twilight, we're simply lost without you.
Equestria may need its princess.
But we need our friend.
Even without these elements, the Tree of Harmony will possess a powerful magic.
As long as that magic remains, it will continue to control and contain all that grows here.
I know how we can save the tree.
We have to give it the Elements of Harmony.
How are we supposed to protect Equestria? How are we meant to rein Discord in if we can't use the Elements to turn him back to stone? Twilight.
The Elements of Harmony, they would keep us connected no matter what.
You're right about one thing, Applejack.
The Elements of Harmony did bring us together.
But it isn't the elements that will keep us connected.
It's our friendship.
And it's more important and more powerful than any magic.
My new role in Equestria may mean I have to take on new responsibilities, and our friendships may be tested, but it will never ever be broken.
There's no time to lose.
Everypony ready? Ready! We know how difficult it must've been for you to give up the elements.
It took great courage to relinquish them.
What's inside it? How am I supposed to open it? Six locks, six keys.
I do not know where they are, but I do know that it is a mystery you will not be solving alone.
Bravo, ladies, bravo! How ever did you save the day this time? Brfash the beastie with your magic necklaces, I presume? Where are those little trinkets of yours? You know, the ones you used to send me back to my extremely uncomfortable stone prison.
Gone… Gone? Gone… But our friendship remains.
And if you wanna remain friends you'll stop thinking whatever it is you thinking and help us clean up.
But I don't do windows.
One thing I don't get, why did all this happen now? I have no idea.
Those seeds I planted should've spurted up ages ago.
What did you say? Why should I try to explain when you can see for yourself? Playtime is over for you, Discord.
Oh, I doubt that.
Hungry? Well, obviously things didn't go according to my original plan.
My plunder seeds should've stolen the magic from the Tree of Harmony and captured Princess Celestia and Princess Luna thousands of moons ago.
Alas, it seems, the tree have enough magic to keep the seeds from growing up big and strong.
Until now, that is.
You realize this is information we could've used hours ago? And rob you of a valuable lesson about being princess? What kind of a friend do you think I am? Citizens of Equestria! It is no longer with a heavy heart but with great joy that I raise the summer sun.
For this celebration now represents not the defeat of Nightmare Moon, but the return of my sister, Princess Luna! SCHASTLIVYI` PONETC anon 2 anon sunnysubs.
com That time will come one day You'll see when we can all be friends
