My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic s05e20 Episode Script

The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows

Five hundred and sixty-six, five hundred and sixty-seven, five hundred and sixty-eight Phew! Look at that, Pound Cake! I am so close to breaking my personal cupcake icing record! My goodness! I can't believe what I'm seeing here! Pretty impressive if I do say so myself.
Pinkie, would you mind watching the counter while I hop to the supply room.
We've just received a very special order and the ingredients need to be perfect.
Okie-dokie-lokie.
Thanks, dear! A baby?! Shining Armor and Princess Cadance are having a baby?! This is the best news ever! I can't wait to tell Twilight! Oh, em, Pinkie, it's a top secret surprise.
Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh A top secret surprise?! That means I have to keep the exciting news to myself! Even though I didn't technically make a Pinkie Promise to Mrs.
Cake, I can't tell Twilight or anypony the big news! That would make me a a a big old surprise ruiner! Right, Gummy? Did you take that from Pound Cake again? Don't you know it's wrong to steal from a baby? What's all this about a baby? What? Who? What? Who said something about a baby?! You did, Ms.
Pie, just now.
What were you talking about? Great! Everypony's here.
Now I don't have to wait any longer to tell you all the wonderful news! Somepony special is coming to visit Ponyville, and I need your help getting everything ready! It's- Shining Armor and Princess Cadance! Yes, and they're coming- Tomorrow! Yes, on the Friendship Express rather than the Crystal Empire train so as not to cause too much of a scene when they skip town and come visit? Yes.
Annnnnd? And that's it.
Oh.
Uh, how did you know all that? Pinkie Sense? So, you said you needed our help with something? Follow me.
Sweet posters! Is that Smash Fortune? It sure is! When Shining Armor said he wanted to come to the castle and visit, I started collecting things he liked when he was a colt as a surprise! Surprise?! I've been so excited that it's been hard to keep it to myself! I have no idea what that's like! Aww, look at the cute little ant farm! And check out all these old comic books! Be careful! They're mint-in-bag! What's this? This is Brutus Force.
Shining Armor used to carry him around like his baby! Yeah! Really cute! It is a bit juvenile for castle decor, but it was very sweet of you.
I'm sure Shining Armor will love it.
Me too, but there's a few more things I'd like to add before he gets here, and I could really use a hoof collecting them.
Whatever you need, sugarcube, we'll help you get it.
Thanks everypony! I just can't wait until they walk in and see everything! Totally understandable.
Watching somepony else be surprised with something is almost better than being the one who's getting the surprise! But, neh, what if the surprise is something so incredibly exciting that a pony can't keep it in any longer, and she has to tell the pony standing next to her what it is or she might explode! I would say no.
The pony who ruins a surprise for somepony else has to live with that guilt, forever! Gotta bounce! So, I know the bar is set pretty high, but does anypony else think that Pinkie Pie was acting weirder than usual? Phew, that was close! Too close.
Almost spilled the beans, beans that would be really hard to clean up! I obviously can't be around my friends right now.
Or anypony for that matter! Hmmm.
That's it! If Shining Armor and Cadance are coming tomorrow, then all I have to do is lock myself in my room away from everypony until they arrive! Then I won't ruin anything! Oh, good, you're back! Mrs.
Cake needs my help but these deliveries can't wait! I can't thank you enough for agreeing to be my backup delivery pony, Pinkie! I did? Maybe I should hire somepony to be my backup delivery pony.
I'll do it! Really? Sure! There's no possible way that I could ever have anything that might interfere with doing that task, like a gigantic, emotionally exhausting surprise that would make it super hard to be around other ponies.
Great! Uh, you're sure you won't change your mind? No way! Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye! Oh yeah.
I Pinkie Promised I'd do it.
And I never break a Pinkie Promise! Never! Well, thanks again! You're a real cake saver! Maybe it'll be a quiet day and I can just avoid everypony! Hi, Pinkie Pie! Heard any good gossip today? Yeah, we're bored.
Please say you have some interesting news? Nope! Fluttershy, what a surprise! I mean, not a surprise! You were in such a rush earlier! Twilight wanted me to ask you if you would bring some snacks to the castle for Shining Armor and Cadance's visit.
Definitely! Got it! Pinkie Promise! Yeah! You know, maybe some baby carrots What did you say? Baby carrots! They're Shining Armor's favorite.
Mine too! Baby carrots are kinda like big carrots but smaller, kinda like how foals are tiny versions of their parents but smaller and cuter and Albino squirrel! Where? Is it Albert? It's time to kick this operation into hyper-hoof, and avoid all ponies by any means necessary! It didn't feel good ignoring my friends like that Maybe I can tell just one little pony the surprise? The pony who ruins a surprise for somepony else must live with that guilt, forever! You're right, spooky reflection of Rarity that I know is actually my own imagination I can't tell anypony at all! Then they would tell Twilight, and she wouldn't be surprised, and then it would be all my fault! Finally, I'm all aloney on my owney.
Wow, great idea! I'm starving too! This apple is delicious! What are you having, Gummy? Oh no! It's the list that Twilight helped me make yesterday so I wouldn't forget all of my Pinkie Promises today! And I have three more things to do! Aw, four if you count bringing those snacks to Twilight's castle! I've been getting liberal with those Pinkie Promises lately Ooh! I want a flamingo! I want a goldfish! Surprise me! Is that a baby bottle? No! It's a a puppy! Woof woof, ha ha! Are you sure? Because it looks like a- Next! Uh, a baby pony, please! Uh, unless of course that would be a royal pain Interesting choice of words, Featherweight.
Was it? I dunno, was it? Uh, maybe you'd better just make me a giraffe.
My, your friends weren't kidding when they said you had a great filing system, Pinkie! You are Ponyville's best kept secret! No I'm not! Speaking of secrets, have you ever known somepony else's secret? Noooooo.
A surprise that was so big and exciting, that it was all you could think about? No! Me neither That's just what I wanted, thanks, Pinkie! You're welcome! Oh, by the way, can you help spread the word about the big crib sale I'm having? Treat your foal like royalty?! Pretty good slogan, huh? Came up with it all by myself! Oh.
I thought it was clever.
Those look yummy, Pinkie! Let me help you! But we'd better cover them up so they don't get spoiled.
Why would they get spoiled? We're all gonna eat them super soon! Oh, didn't anypony tell you? Shining Armor and Cadance are held up.
They may not arrive 'til Saturday.
Whaaaaaaaaaat?! You mean I have to wait another whole day?! I don't know if I can! Pinkie Pie, do you have something you need to say? You seem like you've been keeping something in.
We're here to listen.
Well, go on then, sugarcube.
We're not going to judge you, darling.
You'll feel so much better once you get it off your chest! Come on- Whatever it is, you can tell us! We're best friends! Friends! Friends! Friends! Tell! Tell! Tell! Friends! Friends! Friends! Tell! Tell! Tell! Okay, okay, you win! Shining Armor and Cadance are gonna have a- An awesome weekend with the best little sister in all of Equestria! Hi everypony.
Shining Armor, Cadance! You're early! I thought something had come up and you weren't gonna make it until Saturday! So did we.
Turned out we weren't needed in Maretonia until next week.
And the summit we were supposed to attend today had to be rescheduled, so we got here even sooner than planned! Surprise! It's wonderful to see you all again! I'm so glad you're here! I have a big surprise for you! Oh yeah? Lucky we came when we did, huh? I'm guessing you saw the scroll we sent to Mr.
and Mrs.
Cake? Hey, I'm impressed you've been able to keep our secret this long! So you're gonna tell Twilight now? You're gonna have to wait just a little bit longer.
We have something special planned.
It'll be worth it, I promise.
It'd better be.
So, do you think Shining Armor liked his surprise? Didn't you see him? He couldn't stop raving about it! Where did Shining Armor and Cadance say they'd meet us? I'm starving! In the town square.
I wish they'd waited to walk over with us, but they said they had something to take care of first! They're gonna have a lot more to take care of soon What? Nothiiiiiiing! That's odd.
Usually they're quite punctual.
Ughhh! I need a hayburger in my belly right now! What's this? What does it say? A scavenger hunt! Shining Armor used to set these up for me when I was a filly! At the end, there was always a big prize, like a new book, or several new books, or We get the picture! You like books! So what's the first clue? I hope it's something about eating lunch! You've got a scroll, you're on a roll, why don't you take a peek where young ones spend their week? A piece of paper will continue this caper.
I've got it! 'Where the young ones spend their week'.
I'm not quite followin'.
It's the Ponyville schoolhouse! Good enough for me! Now where's the next clue? Extra, extra! Get your Ponyville news! Read it in the paper! A piece of paper will continue this caper'.
It's in the Foal Free Press! Ooh, look at that dress Mayor Mare is wearing for the social report! Why, it's stunning! Uh, didn't you make that, Rarity? Yes, what is your point? Focus, everypony! You know, there's really no time limit on these scavenger hunts, Pinkie.
A-ha! There! Though this hall is rather small, in it you'll find files of all kinds.
Take a look on the back of the birth certificate of Applejack.
I don't like where this is goin'.
Baby, a royal ba- A-hem? Does anypony know where the birth certificates are kept? Ooh! I do, I do! Go down that hall, then you take a left, then a right, then another right, then a slight left and it's the third door on the right! Wow, Pinkie.
I never knew you knew so much about town hall.
There's a lot of things I know, that you don't know I know! This next place is where you can buy a table or chair, or some comfy beds to rest little heads? Ugh, really? None of you? It's obviously the furniture store! Go in go in go in! I don't know Daagh, fine! Wow, you're scary good at this, Pinkie Pie.
It seems we saved the best for last, we hope that you have had a blast.
Now it's time to take a break where you can get a slice of cake! Sugarcube Corner! That was an easy one.
Surprise! Twily, did you like the scavenger hunt? It was perfect! Just like old times, except even better because this time I got to share it with my best friends! There's just one thing missing, isn't there? What's that? Mm-m, the book prize at the end! There's still a prize, but it's a little different this time.
Oh.
I don't understand.
All the places we sent you today had something in common.
First we went to the schoolhouse Then we read the Foal Free Press After that we found Applejack's birth certificate And then the last clue was under a crib.
Hmmm School foal birth certificate and crib Can it be? Are you two-?! We're having a baby! A baby, Twilight! It's a baby! Woohoo! You mean I'm going to be an aunt? This is the best prize ever! Oh, I love you guys! And I can't wait to meet your little foal! Neither can we.
I did it, I did it, I did it, I did it! Go Pinkie.
You did it, Pinkie Pie! You kept it a surprise! Thank you! Was it much trouble? Piece of cake! OmegaBowser, Komanokami, Max le Fou OmegaBowser Retropony
