My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s05e12 Episode Script

Amending Fences

You know the worst thing about you being the Princess of Friendship? The dishes.
Thanks for taking care of that, Spike.
After three events in one week, I really needed to relax with a good book.
That's kinda funny, isn't it? All these ponies comin' to you for advice about friendship? What's funny about that? You know.
'Cause you used to be famous for being such a bad friend.
What are you talking about? I had good friends in Canterlot.
Come on, Twilight! Look at the wall! D'ya see any photos from before we moved to Ponyville? And look at you now: The Princess of Friendship.
This is a disaster! All my old friends! I can't remember any of their names right now! But do you really think that they think I'm a bad friend? Well, I only meant that you've come so far.
W-Well, you're a great friend now and- Oh, I feel terrible! I've gotta make it up to them! Pack a bag, Spike! We're going to Canterlot! And make a list of my friends' names.
Aw.
Me and my big mouth.
Come on, Twilight.
You're getting worked up about nothin'.
The only logical place to start is at the beginning.
It's exactly how we left it! Look! It's Predictions and Prophecies! And it's still open to the Elements of Harmony! And here's that present I was gonna give Moon Dancer! Huh.
Guess she won't be needing that.
Hey, look! The rest of it's still here! How could I have let this happen? Come on, Twilight.
Princess Celestia gave you an assignment.
Nopony could blame you for that.
But look at the way I left this place! It's a total mess! Just like how I left my friendships.
I've gotta make it up toooouh Oh! Uh, Minuette, Twinkleshine, Lemon Hearts, Lyra Heartstrings, and Moon Dancer.
Yeah.
Them.
Spike! Come on! We've got work to do! Have you been awake all night? I did a little research! And I think I know where we can find Minuette! That is one of my friends, right? Uh, it's not too late to forget I opened my big mouth.
No, Spike! I'm glad you opened your big mouth! These ponies have probably been suffering ever since I left! Wondering why their supposed friend would treat them so badly! Minuette? Twilight Sparkle! You old so-and-so! What are you doing here?! Hey, Spike! Look at these wings, huh?! Hey, grab a picture of me and the Princess, will ya?! I tried to tell my co-workers we used to be friends back when.
But they've never believed me! Wa-wa-wait! Really fluff 'em up, huh? So what are you doing here?! I mean, I know you're here all the time, but you never come to see me.
Hey, I just had the greatest idea! You wanna go see Lemon Hearts and Twinkleshine? Of course! My old friends! It'll be great! Come on! Let's fly! Get it? This is perfect! I can apologize to all three of them at once! Let's hope they're not as traumatized as Minuette.
She did! Twinkleshine literally spit out her oats when she heard you were the Princess of Friendship! We saw you at the coronation.
That was some shindig! You did? Sure! We see you all the time! You remember our old friend, Lyra, right? She lives in Ponyville, too.
We're always over there visiting her.
Or she's coming over here! We thought about asking you to join us from time to time, but we just sorta figured you'd moved on.
Oh.
So what brings you by anyway? All those times you've come back to Canterlot you never had donuts with us before.
Well, uh, you see I came to apologize.
For what? Before I left Canterlot, I didn't really appreciate my friends.
And that's because I didn't know how important friendship was.
But I've learned so much since I moved to Ponyville.
I learned what it means to be a good friend and that I certainly wasn't one to the three of you.
So for all the pain I caused you, I am truly sorry.
Oh, come on, Twilight! Sure, it might've stung a little bit when you ran off to Ponyville without saying goodbye, but it's not like we weren't used to that from you! Yeah, we didn't take it personally.
But it's really good to see you now.
Hey! Anypony up for a blast from the past? It's our old science lab! I have so many great memories of this place! Remember when Lemon Hearts got her head stuck in that beaker? But according to this book, you're supposed to add the sodium chloride first.
I read ahead and to make a proper saltlick, you need to add the molasses first.
Well, I read ahead, too, Moon Dancer.
And I'm sure it said sodium chloride first.
Oh.
I've got the wrong book.
That's so hilarious.
What ever happened to Moon Dancer? Moon Dancer? Yeah.
You know.
Our other friend.
Oh, right! Moon Dancer! I remember her! I wonder what she's up to.
Yeah, I always liked her.
We just sort of lost touch after you left.
I think she went to live out by the stadium, didn't she? Well, let's go see.
I think this is the place.
Didn't used to look like this, though.
Moon Dancer? What do you want? I'm trying to study.
It's us! Your old friends! Ugh! That's old Moon Dancer, alright.
She always did like her books.
Hey! Kinda like you used to be, huh? Exactly how I used to be.
Come on, Twilight! We've been watching her for three days! Library, house.
That's it! Nopony looks at her or says hello or even gives her a smile.
It's like she doesn't even exist.
Was she always like this? Well, she always was a little shy.
But for a while there, she was really starting to come out of her shell.
Remember when she threw that party? Oh, right.
I think you might've been busy that day.
There you are, Twilight! Moon Dancer is having a little get-together in the west castle courtyard.
You wanna come? Oh, sorry, girls I've got a lot of studying to catch up on.
Thought she finally might be letting her guard down a little with that party.
We invited her out a few times out after that.
But she was always too busy studying.
So, eventually, we just stopped asking.
I had no idea that party was so important to her.
I've gotta find a way to make it up to her! Oh, my gosh! Moon Dancer?! Is that— Shh! Moon Dancer, can I talk to you for a min— Shh! What is this? Eh, a bubble of silence.
I haven't seen you in a while and I thought it might be nice to catch up.
For what purpose? You know.
'Cause we're friends.
Shhh! I'm really sorry to bother you.
I was just hoping we would go outside and talk for a bit.
I'm sorry I skipped your party.
AAAAH!!! Shhh! Why won't you leave me alone? I'm trying to study! You've got the wrong pony! I don't have parties! You did once.
And I was so caught up in my own studying that I didn't take your feelings into account.
Look, Twilight Twinkle— Sparkle.
Whatever! I just need to be alone so I can study without some crazy pony trying to make friends, all right?! Fine! Wait.
How did you get into my book like that? I've been studying a new studying technique.
I can only do it for a few minutes, but you'd be amazed how much you can pick up when you're actually in a book! It's one of Haycartes' methods.
You know Haycartes? Of course! He's a genius! I have a copy of his Treaties on Ponies, you know.
What is this place? This is where I used to live.
You mean, I never had you over? Wow! A first edition of Principles of Magic! Heydidn't I give this to you? Mmmaybe? I did! Look, I even wrote something! To my friend, Twilight Sparkle.
Thanks for introducing me to the classics.
I can see by the fact that you left it here that it meant a lot to you.
Look, I didn't bring you over here for even more poignant reminders of what a bad friend I was.
I brought you here to give you this.
You can come here whenever you want to and study to your heart's contempt.
Really? But first, you've gotta do something for me.
What? Have dinner with our old friends tonight.
I can't.
I'm already reorganizing my biology scrolls.
I've been spending a lot of time with Minuette, Twinkleshine and Lemon Hearts since I've been back.
They really miss you.
Look! I already told you! The last thing I need is a bunch of ridiculous friend-making keeping me from studying! Moon Dancer, wait! A wise pony once taught me that there's more to life than dusty old books! I tried friendship and it's just not for me.
Now if you'll excuse me.
What if I taught you Haycartes' method? So, uh, what are you studying these days? Science, magic, history, economics, pottery.
Things like that.
Yowza! You planning on being a professor or something? No.
So you're just studying.
Can I go now? Moon Dancer, please.
It's all right, Twilight.
We're having a good time.
Right, everypony? So, uh Spike, tell Moon Dancer that story 'bout how Twilight had to read a book about doing a sleepover! Slumber 101? I've read that.
Oh! Really? Well, uh, did you know Lemon Hearts here works at the Canterlot palace? Uh, yeah.
It's true.
I do the big events mostly.
State dinners, that sort of thing.
Ugh! Moon Dancer! You've gotta give friendship a chance! Dah! I gave friendship a chance a long time ago! It didn't work out then – it isn't gonna work out now! Twilight, are you all right? No.
No, I'm not.
W-Where are you goin'? I don't know, Spike.
I really messed this one up.
That party was everything to her.
I can only imagine what it must've felt like when I didn't show up.
Hey, Moon Dancer! Look at this spread, huh? Thank you so much for coming! Of course.
We wouldn't miss one of our best friends' parties.
Is Twilight coming? Oh.
Okay.
Hey, we'll still have fun, right? Sure If there was only a way to undo the damage I know what I need to do.
And I know just who can help me.
Huh.
Guess they must've gone back to Ponyville.
That was awesome! We gotta go flying more often, Twilight! There you are! I thought you threw in the old towel and headed home! I did head home.
But not to throw in the towel.
I went to get my secret weapon.
Minuette, meet— Hey! Pinkie Pie! Hi, Minuette! Twilight, you didn't say Minuette would be here! You two know each other? Oh, sure! She was one of Cadance's bridesmaids! We hang out all the time when she's in Ponyville! Didn't you know that? Ha! And you call yourself the Princess of Friendship! Twilight briefed me on the way here.
We'll need fifteen bags of confetti and as many hooves as we can get.
Let's go! We can pass by the donut place on the way! And what are we gonna do? Just come with me.
Ooh! A Brief History of the Wagon Harness! Huh? The Life and Times of Morari the Maneless? What is this? It's a party.
For you.
Surprise! Come on in! Thanks but no thanks.
I don't do parties.
I know.
And I think it's my fault.
Back when we were in school together, you invited me to a party.
I was so focused on my studies that I didn't show up.
Big deal! It was a big deal.
And now that I realize how important friendship is, I'd like to make up for my mistake with a new party.
A party in honor of my friend Moon Dancer! Please, you've got to let me make this up to you.
And you think this is gonna do it, huh? Uh, yes? Well, sure, why wouldn't it? That was only the first time I put myself out there, and then you didn't even bother to show up! Then you left town without saying goodbye even though we were supposed to be friends! I was humiliated! I felt like I wasn't important! I never wanted myself to let myself be hurt like that again! Those three finally convinced me that I had value! That other ponies might like me and want to be my friend! And you! Didn't! Show! Up! You're right.
This party can't make up for the way I hurt you.
But please, don't let my mistake be the reason you can't be friends with anypony else.
We were your friends then and we'd be honored to be your friends now.
What? That's the librarian! The bookseller! My sister! You've got a lot of friends, Moon Dancer.
I'm sorry, Moon Dancer.
I've faced magical creatures, the end of Equestria, all sorts of things.
But seeing how my actions affected you, that was one of the worst feelings I've ever had.
Thank you, Twilight.
I never realized how much I needed to hear that.
Now come on, everypony! Let's party! Right? Right! YAAAAAAY!!! I think it's time for us to go, Moon Dancer.
Thank you for helping me make some new friends.
Even if they are my old friends.
Oh.
We'll come back and visit soon.
That would be great! You've still gotta teach me that Hayscartes technique! Deal.
Um, Moon Dancer? It got kinda banged up, but here's a little something I wanted to give you back at your first party.
