My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s04e13 Episode Script

Simple Ways

Wow! I can't believe how many ponies showed up! I can! I mean, finding out who the Ponyville Day's Pony of Ceremonies is is a pretty big deal! I didn't know Granny Smith was on the selection committee.
Of course she is.
Ponyville Day's celebrates the founding of Ponyville, and she was right there.
I'm glad the Commitee did not automatically pick me, so everypony gets the chance to see how great being me actually is.
Even though the festival is basically a party and the Pony of Ceremonies gets to organize the whole thing, so it'd totally make sense if they did pick me.
Citizens of Ponyville! This year's applicants were all exceptional, but there can only be one Ponyville Day's Pony of Ceremonies.
And that pony is… …Rarity! Allright, Rarity! Yeah! Allright, Rarity! Yeah! Congratulations, Rarity! Do you know what you're gonna do? I might have a few ideas.
I'm so excited for the festival I can hardly stand up straight! Me too.
I'm glad Rarity was picked.
I know she'll add a touch of elegance to the whole thing.
Probably more than a touch.
This year's Ponyville Day's festival, designed by Rarity, will feature various high-class events, such as: A silent cider auction and tasting! A Ponyville Gala in town square! And, of course, a Ponyville fashion show! This year's Ponyville Day's festival Pony of Ceremonies creates shimmering couture of her own design.
And the theme is… Small! Town! Chic! Wow, Rarity! You really have put a lot of effort into this.
I'll say.
I think it's going to be magical.
Do you really think so? Are you kidding? I can't wait! Oh, that's such a relief.
But of course, I couldn't possibly do it all on my own.
The festival's in three days! Pinkie Pie and I can hang lights and decorations in the town square.
And I can get Sweet Apple Acres all ready for the cider tasting.
Oh, that's just perfect.
And now Twilight, if you and Fluttershy wouldn't mind helping with the fashion show?.
Of course! I'd be honored.
I can focus on the thing I'm worried about most of all.
What? Creating a Ponyville Day's festival fantastic enough to impress… …Trenderhoof! Who's Trenderhoof? What? How can you not know who Trendehoof is? Trenderhoof is only the most amazing, handsomest travel writer to have ever traveled or written! Before Las Pegasus became an Equestria travel destination, he wrote about it.
Before the culinary revolution in Trottingham, he discovered it! He knows what's going to be hot even before it's tepid! Sounds like somepony has a little bit of a crush.
Twilight! Crush doesn't even begin to describe it.
He's practically divine! I can't believe he's comming! Thank you ever so much for joining me, Twilight.
I don't think I could have met Trenderhoof on my own.
It's no problem.
But you shouldn't be nervous about meeting him.
Is that him? Is he here? Twilight, is he there? I'm not sure.
You don't suppose he has decided not to come? Twilight, I don't see him! What if he doesn't arrive? The whole festival would be a disaster! Twilight, where is he?! Sorry.
Rarity, you have to get a hold of yourself.
I mean, you haven't even met him yet.
What's wrong? It's him! It's him! It's him! It's him! Him! It's him! It's him! It's him! Well, go and talk to him.
I can't.
Hello mister Trenderhoof.
I am Rarity, and I have been chosen as pony of ceremonies for the Ponyville Days Festival.
Please call me Trend.
And over here would be the climax of the festival.
The Ponyville Days Gala.
Music, dancing and of course locally sourced menu of delicious treats.
Reminds me of the springfling meets Manehattan wedding I wrote about in Galloping Prance.
Exactly! I can't even describe how much your work has influenced me.
And finally.
Sweet Apple Acres! Ponyville's core So to speak.
Where our quaint little hummock began.
Breath taking.
I've heard about it of course.
But to see it "en vérité".
To stand on the soil of working farm.
You can really feel the authenticity.
Oh yes.
Well, they really do grow apples here.
Thank you Rarity.
Thank you for bringing me here.
This farm is truly something special.
I had planned to transform it into an elegant country inn for the festival.
But now I see just how special it is.
Au naturel.
Au naturel indeed.
Who? Is? That? Who, Applejack? Why are you staring at her like that? I've seen a lot in my travels but I've never beheld such beauty.
The pony of my dreams.
Rarity? Rarity? Hello? I brought my cider testing cup.
Are you ready to go try the samples? What's the po-o-oint? Rarity? What's wrong? Nothing.
Is it something like I said? He doesn't like me.
What? He doesn't like me.
Rarity, I can't hear what are He doesn't like me because he has a crush on Applejack, Even though I had a crush on him ever since the beginning of time, and it's not fair! Trenderhoof doesn't like you? That's ridiculous! Oh Spike.
How could you even know what it's like to be totally obsessed with the pony only to find that they're obsessed somepony else? I mean, what could Applejack possibly have that I don't? You know.
I have such respect for the work ethic of Earth Ponies.
Ah jee.
Granny Smith always said: "Pick an apple a day and keep trouble away".
How many varieties of apples do you think there are? On the farm or in all of Equestria, cause I once had an apple so rare they thought it was extinct.
I ate four of 'em.
Is that a fact? That's my thing.
I take the mundane, the simple, the unappreciated and I make it relatable.
Well, I hope you can relate to Ponyville.
Mee too.
But enough about me.
I wanna know about you! What do apples mean to Applejack? Look.
I'm glad you're interested in Ponyville and all, but I'm kinda busy with my chores.
And if I can't get them done, there won't be a Ponyville Day's festival for you to write about.
Well, that will never do.
Rarity, what are you wearing? What, this old thing? Aren't you too busy planning a festival to keep making new outfits for it? I am.
But the thought of hauling apples inspired me, and I just couldn't stop myself! Really? If there's one thing I love, it's hauling apples.
I'm growing fond of it myself.
Maybe you two should try it sometime.
I'm feeling a tad inspired.
Without farm life there'd be such disparity! These thoughts I think with great clarity! Apples high to sky! She's the one of my eye! That fruit-hauling pony named… Applejack! Rarity, why do you wanna plow a field? Is it me, or could this use a splash of color? And maybe a wash! Don't we need to check on the gala decorations? Yes, yes, of course.
But Trend obviously has a thing for farm life.
If I can't convince him that I'm just as much of a farmhoof as Applejack, I'll never get him interested in the festival.
The festival.
And I do appreciate your help ever so much! I couldn't do a thing without you, Spikey-poo.
Well, that's what friends are for.
So! Come on! Farm thing! How does Applejack do it?! Well, it would help if the harness was on, right? What are you doing? I am simply lending a hoof for the chores.
Which I love doing ever so much! Well, if you're still interested, after the festival I can teach you all about it.
But right now I need to get the plowing done, if you don't mind.
Not at all.
She makes it look so easy.
I know.
Isn't she fantastic? I really don't see what the fuss is all about.
Now, Rarity, you be careful! If you don't get the bucking just right, you could sprain a hoof.
I am perfectly familiar with the applebucking process, thank you very much! But, while you seem to rely on raw power, I believe a certain amount of style is required.
It's really more of a dance, if you ask me! Voila! Well, your way is definitely long on style.
Thank you.
Now, if you'll all excuse me, I have some more chores to do.
Inside! Rarity, can I ask you something? Oh, why Trend, you can ask me anything.
I've been meaning to ask for a while, and… frankly, I'm sort of embarrassed… Rarity… Do you… think… Applejack would be my date for the festival? Why don't you go ask her yourself?! Well, that was close.
If you've come to apologize, there's really no need.
What are you talking about? Let's dispense with the charade, shall we? Listen, I know you really want Trend to like you.
And he does! Despite somepony's best efforts! I swear I don't know why he is paying so much attention to me! And I don't know anypony who's that interested in farming.
Not even me! Well maybe it's time Trend met a real country pony! Shouldn't you be working on the festival instead of coming up with new ways to impress Trend? Oh, I'm sure you'd love that! Well, I have a new vision for the festival and it's gonna be more country then the whole Apple family put together! Isn't it a little late to be changing the theme? Applejack, what's going on? I'm too scared to guess.
Firstly, I just want to thank you for coming, and second, I know, ya'll all adore my new festival theme! Simple ways! Well, what's so funny?! Rarity, that is the silliest get-up I've ever seen! It is a little funny.
Funny? Rarity, you aren't serious, are you? Well, of course I'm serious Wha.
Wouldn't I be? Because you would never dress like that.
You like fashion and high society and fancy things.
And I can like plowing fields and hauling apples just as much.
But you don't! How do you know what I like? Because I know you.
Maybe you don't know me as well as you think.
And I suppose it is just a coincidence that Trenderhoof seems so interested in country life too.
I don't know what you're getting at.
Well, then I guess I'll just have to show you.
Be my guest.
If you all will excuse me I have a hootenanny of a festival to put on.
To be a model in the simple ways fashion show you might think simple means less is more.
Well? That just ain't so.
If you want to be real simple, more is more.
Now, y'all go off and make yourselves look just like that.
Who's our next model for the fashion show? Apple… Jewel.
Who the hay is that? Is this some kind of joke? Wow, Rarity.
What ever would make you think I was joking? Because You would never wear an ensemble like that.
You like plowing fields and hauling apples.
And I can like fashion just as much.
But you don't.
Well, maybe you do not know me as well as you think.
But I got a whole festival to plan.
So if y'all going to start modeling just get on with it.
Life is a festival.
And you should celebrate it by looking just like me because I'm a trend-setting fashionista.
You are a trend-setting fashionista? Well, that is a most ridiculous thing I've ever… I mean… Good for you.
I, on other hoof, couldn't care less how I look long as I get the chores done.
Oh, is that so? Yes, indeedy-doodle.
Not me.
My mane need to be perfectly coiffed all times.
Well, my mane is full of dust and split ends.
My hooves are so polished you can see your reflection in them.
My hooves are cracked and dry of working in the fields.
I'm so fashion-forward.
I wear droopy drawers! I smell like rosebuds.
I love being covered in mud! Goodness! Your couture! Ooh, it's bad! Will somepony bring me a towel to wipe this repulsive filth from my hooves? There is the Rarity I know.
Oh, Applejack.
I'm sorry I said all those things.
You are a true friend who probably knows me better than I know myself.
I don't know what I was thinking wearing this ridiculous outfit.
I kinda know how you feel.
But you were just trying to help me see how silly I was being.
And you were right.
Besides, that gown looks just gorgeous on you.
I wish I hadn't ruined it.
I wish I hadn't ruined it.
It's nice, ain't it? It's magnificent! Wherever did you get it? Oh, It is one of yours.
I'll need three gallons of boling water and one ounce of detergent, stat! I'm moving to Ponyville Being the most interesting pony in Equestria is exhausting.
I wanna leave my exotic exciting life behind and live on a farm.
What? Well, that's real nice, but I sure hope you weren't thinking of Sweet Apple Acres.
Look, you're a fine pony, but, well, I'm a… I think, what Applejack is trying to say, is that there is something unappealing about a pony who changes himself so much just to impress somepony else.
If somepony doesn't like you for who you are, it's their loss.
Well, this is awkward.
Not at all.
In fact, I think I know just how you feel.
What do you think, Rarity? Is it too late to go back to "Small Town Chic"? Not if I can help it! Organizing the Ponyville Day's celebration was one of the hardest things I've ever done.
But I learnt an important lesson.
Real friends will like you for who you are, and changing yourself to impress them is no way to make new ones.
And, when you're as fabulous as I am, it's practically a crime! СЧАСТЛИВЫЙ ПОНЕЦ! anon2anon sunnysubs.
