Rarity Takes Manehattan

There you are, Rarity! That's the last of your bags.
Actually, Spike, I've got one last pile of bags, over there.
Won't you be a dear? Sure… I'll be a dear… An entire week in the fabulous city of Manehattan! Plus, all of my very best friends there with me! Of course we'd all come along to support you during Fashion Week, Rarity! Not that you'll need it.
I'm sure you'll win.
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that you'll all be there with me! However… Perhaps I can show you… What's that? Ooh, ooh, ooh, I know! A paper fan! No, it's… A magic trick! You know, where I pick a card and remember what it is and then you put it back in the deck so you can't look at it and… These are tickets to the hottest musical on Bridleway! You couldn't mean Hinny of the Hills… because that show's been sold out for months! Or could you?! I could.
I do.
Oh Rarity, you didn't have to do that, but… since you did… This trip is fun already! I love jumping up and down! Come along, ponies! I found us a place to stay only a block from the train station in the very heart of this glorious metropolis! Hey, look! That's the theatre where Hinny of the Hills is playin'! Wow, Rarity! How'd you manage to get us seats for tomorrow night? Oh, I gave some designs for the costume designer, so he pulled a few strings.
That is what makes Manehattan so splendid and amazing.
You do something nice for somepony, and then you'll never know when they'll do something nice for you! So then you can do something nice for us! Like get us in to see Hinny of the Hills! Which is only the best musical in all of Equestria! It must be good if Rainbow Dash is impressed.
Normally she doesn't even like musicals.
I know.
Ponies just bursting into song in random places at the drop of a hat? Who does that? Oh, Manehattan, what you do to me Such a huge bustling community And there's always opportunity To do the friendly thing If some are grouchy, pay no mind Surprise instead with something kind Lo and behold, you may just find A smile is what you'll bring Welcome to the Mane Fair Hotel! Please allow me to take those bags to your room for you! Only if you'll accept this gratuity first.
Oh-ho-ho! I'll get your change! Do keep it all.
I insist! Generosity, I'm here to show all that I can give Generosity, I'm here to set the bar Just sit back and watch how I live After you.
Why, thank you.
Please, take mine.
Wow, okay.
Some may say, "Rarity, Don't be so big-hearted and bold Treating strangers like they're friends This town's too big and cold" But this is how I play my cards I'm not about to fold Where I see a frown, I go to town Call me the smile patrol Oh, Manehattan, what you do to us What if you find a Gloomy Gus? It's no intimidatin' thing Just be kind without a fuss Generosity, I'm here to show all that I can do Generosity, you are the key Manehattan, I'm here just for you Just for you To think my dresses could soon be displayed on the most glamorous shopping thoroughfare in the most glamorous city in Equestria! Oh, it would be my dream come true! Is there anything left to do we can help you with? Hm, not that I can think of.
The dresses are all completely finished, all made from a fabulous new fabric I've been developing for months.
Stretchy, but not clingy.
Shimmery, but not showy.
Sounds amazing.
There's nothing left for me to do but check in at the runway with my dresses by two this afternoon.
Oh, that's funny.
Because that clock over there makes it seem like that's only ten minutes from now! Oh, my ribbons and threads.
And the runway ballroom is all the way across town! If I don't get there, I'm disqualified! Taaaaxiii! Oh, no! We've gotta help her find a cab, now! I'm on it! Hey, buddy! Is this cab taken? The line ends back there, buddy! What? Does everypony in this town want a cab? I'm afraid getting a taxi at this time could prove almost impossible! Please, let her have this taxi! She has somewhere very important to be, right away! Not likely! She can get in line like the rest of us! Oh, it's no use! The cab drivers just drive right past to get to the next pony in line! Your wheel works like a charm! So now which of you nice folks is hoppin' in? Fashion runway ballroom, seven minutes.
Can you make it? Hang on! Whew, that was close.
Anypony else got a sneaking suspicion we're forgetting something? The dresses! Good afternoon, I'm here for Fashion Week! Everypony's gathered in front of the runway and about to start, so you'll just have to bring your dresses along with you and store them backstage later.
My- My dresses! How could I possibly forget them?! I'm dooooomed! Got 'em right here, ma'am! Your friends told me you need these in a hurry, so I offered to race 'em over myself.
'Anything for that nice mare,' I told 'em! You're a lifesaver! I made it! And with seconds to spare! Hello, everypony.
Pleased to meet you all.
Rarity, I presume.
You must be Prim Hemline, the host of this grand event.
How do you.
? Miss Rarity, how is it that all your competitors are here half an hour early, and yet you arrive seconds before we begin? Just… lucky, I guess.
Once we're done here, you're to finish setting up backstage, so you'll be ready for your run-through appointment.
You show your designs last.
We keep to a precise schedule, so let's try to be more than a few seconds early, hmm? Tomorrow is the contest to see which one of you gets to stay to meet top designers all across the city.
The rest of you must go home early.
So sad.
Dismissed! I'm so glad you made it, Rarity! Me too, but everything just seems to keep working out! Don't you remember me? Suri Polomare from the Ponyville Knitters League? Oh, yes, of course, of course! I- I thought you looked familiar, but I couldn't place it.
You haven't been back in years! Because I moved her to make it in the big city.
Oh, good for you, Sur-- Ooh, it's so good to see you! And now here, we are, competing! Yes, yes, well good luck! Oh, I don't need luck.
Would you like a hoof with your things? Why, thank you so much! My, your collection is gorgeous! Oh now, I'm sure your collection is equally lovely, if not more so! It's alright, but nothing like this! Take my culottes for example, they are simply crying out for just the right accent, but I haven't the slightest notion where I- Actually… just a touch of this fabric could be perfect for it.
W- Oh hey, would you mind terribly if I took a swatch? Oh, not at all! Here, I have loads extra.
You're sure? Positive! Oh well, it's been wonderful getting caught up, and I don't mean to be rude, but I must finish my preparations and I am a bit late as it- is? Hello! I'm here half an hour early for my run-through appointment, just the way Prim likes! Get in line over there.
Oh my, that fabric's gorgeous, did you make that yourself? Oh my yes.
It's stretchy, but not clingy.
Shimmery- Shimmery, but not showy.
And the entire line is in the same adorable pattern.
It works on everything from the skirts to tops to shoes and, Oh, bravo! I've never seen anything like it! You stole my fabric! I didn't steal it, okay? You gave it to me, 'member? I gave you the fabric for accents! Not for your whole line! And how could you possibly make all of those outfits out of it so fast?! Fast? Coco Pommel took practically forever.
Nearly got me completely disqualified.
Well, I wanted to make sure you'd win, so I took the extra time to-- Quiet! I pay an assistant to sew and get coffee, not talk.
How could this happen? Aw, sweetie, don't blame yourself.
It takes some small-town fillies a while to learn it's everypony for herself in the big city, okay? Hope you realize how fortunate you are to have me as your mentor.
Now get me some coffee! Oh my gosh, what a great afternoon! It was almost too much fun! Better pace yourself, 'cause the rest of the day is jam-packed! First there's the salon appointment to get our manes done.
Then our fancy dinner at the Far-Afield Tavern! And after that… Hinny of the Hills! Is… everything okay? You got the dresses the bellhop brought you and everything, right? But he said he brought them.
And then Suri stole them! I let one of the other contestants use some of my one-of-a-kind fabric and then she turned it into a wardrobe just like mine, and only now it looks like I'm the one copying her! My generosity has ruined me, I tell you! Ruined! Now, Rarity, whatever went wrong, we're all here to help you get through it, no matter what it takes.
Come on, Rarity, buck up! All we need is some fabric and you'll be back in business! This new line is going to be marvelous! Perhaps even better than the last! It's daring, it's bold! Perhaps I still have a chance after all! Twilight! Sew these pieces together according to that pattern there! You said if we skipped dinner at the Far-Afield Tavern you'd order a meal for us while we keep working.
Don't fret.
It'll be here in an hour.
That's not going to be a problem, is it? Well, we're supposed to be watching Hinny of the Hills by then… I see! I go out of my way to get you tickets for a show, and this is how you repay me? By abandoning me in my hour of need? Fine! Go and see Hinny of the Hills tonight! And then tomorrow morning when you come to see my fashion show without any fashion to show, you can have more entertainment! 'Oh my, look, there's our friend Rarity going down in flames! Isn't friendship magic?!' Rarity, calm down.
What's gotten into you? What's gotten into you?! Oh, go ahead! Go and see your show! Congratu-pony-lations, fillies! Seems like you've all figured out already it's everypony for herself in this town! There.
That's the last of them.
Finally! You're welcome! Let's have another round of applause for Suri Polomare's amazing collection.
That fabric! So original! Well look who's here.
Here to show off your copycat collection, mm? Huh? And now, Rarity from Ponyville with her brand new line and I mean "brand new".
Hotel Chic.
Oh? They're liking it! I think I may have just won this thing! Oh, I can't wait to celebrate with- My friends! They didn't come… What have I done? Rarity, they all adore you! Aren't you going to tell them about your fabulous pieces? I have to go.
Come back at once! This is unheard of! How'd'you do, ma'am? Contest going well? No time to talk.
I have to find my friends! Oh, they're gone already.
I saw them headed out this morning.
Oh no! Back to Ponyville, I imagine.
Oh, they worked so hard on my behalf! And then I repaid them with unkindness.
What have I done?! here you are.
But miss, I- I didn't do anything! Oh, Manehattan, what have I done? The thought of Fashion Week was fun But I went way too far My friends gave to me in ways so kind And I gave them nothing but a hard time And now alone I stand I need a moment with Prim Hemline.
I have to rush back to Ponyville but I just wanted to thank her first for- you'd best steer clear of Prim for a while, she's pretty furious.
Isn't that right? yes.
There you all are! I can't believe it, I thought you went back home! We missed the show because we overslept.
Suri told us you lost.
We're really sorry.
I lost? You know what? I don't even care.
I'm just happy you're all still here after how I treated you.
Taking advantage of your friendship the way I did… how could you ever see past it? Yeah, you were pretty rotten.
Whoa, Applejack.
I know your thing is honesty, but come on! Last night we may not have seen you at your best, but we know you.
And we would never let one thing like that change how we feel about you.
Oh, thank you! You really are utmost wonderful friends a pony could have! You know, I already arranged to make it up to you this afternoon! Hope you're all available for an exclusive performance of Hinny of the Hills! And that is how it's done.
Pretty clever how I convinced her to stay away from Prim, wasn't it? Wouldn't have wanted her to find out the truth now, would we? …dancing pony! Wow! That was even better than I imagined! I loved it! Uh, I mean, it was a'ight.
How did you ever get them to agree to do an extra performance just for us? Remember my costume designer friend who got me the tickets? Well, I offered to make all the costumes for his next show! Um, here in Manehattan? Yes… it will keep me away from Ponyville for a while.
But I still wanted you to see this show! And working for this designer is such a great opportunity! We know.
We're happy for you, Rarity.
We're just sad for us.
Mind if I join you? Sure.
Come on down.
This is the first place trophy for Fashion Week.
With my name on it! But I thought I lost! You didn't.
You won.
Suri was hoping that if you didn't claim your prize, the judges would consider it a forfeit and first place would go to her.
So she lied to make you and your friends go away, and… Well, I lied too.
I've worked for Suri for so long, I started to believe it really is everypony for herself in this town.
Until I saw how generous you were with your friends.
And how generous they were with you.
It made me start believing, that there was something better for me out.
So, I, I quit.
I brought you something to say thank you.
I suppose you'll need a job now that you're no longer with Suri.
How would you like to work for my friend making all the costumes for his next show? Manehattan is simply grand.
It was in this magnificent metropolis that I learned, that while there are ponies that will take advantage of your generosity, you should never ever let that cause you to abandon your generous spirit.
Nothing feels worse than taking advantage of the giving nature of your friends.
