- Oh boy.
So she's all the way out here.
After everything Sapphire said, she must be heartbroken.
H-hey guys! Steven?! How'd you find me? - We sensed you.
- We heard you ordered pizza.
Ruby was just telling me about your mom.
Oh.
Are you okay? Well, I fell in love with Rose Quartz and she fell in love with Mr.
Universe.
Sure she never told me she used to be pink diamond, but [Chuckles] I never told her I used to be Gregory Demayo.
So, how're you holding up, Ruby? I'm okay.
Want a slice? Uh Thank you Wait, really? You seemed so sad before! Yeah, but me and Greg talked it out.
I'm fine now.
Are you sure? Yeah.
Sapphire was kinda right about everything.
We really did stay Garnet because Rose told us we were The answer.
It's my first time really thinking about it.
It's my first time really thinking about Me! What do you mean? Back when I emerged, the first thing I did was get crammed together with a bunch of other Rubies, then I was with Sapphire all the time.
I was always checking in with someone, but now I can go wherever the wind takes me! I'm up here, eating pizza, reading comics! I dunno if Sapphire wants to read comics! I don't have to know! The rest of my life could be like this! I don't have to be Garnet I could be on my own! - Sure! - I guess Wha-a-a-a-at?! B-b-b-but but you guys love each other! You're my favorite couple! Y-you're like sugar and flour! I love eating them separately but I still want cake! I'm sure Sapphire would want I'm not fussed about what Sapphire wants.
I'm seeing my own future now, and it's nothin' but Ruby! [Whimpering] Relax, kiddo.
This could be what she needs.
But Dad! What if they never form Garnet again?! We gotta get 'em back together! W-Whoa! Th-that's not our call to make! Ruby's gotta want that for herself.
If it's not what Ruby wants, then it's not what Garnet wants, right? Mmm I guess so So where you going after this, dude? You just gonna stay out here? I wanna live free! One with the wilderness! Facing danger at every turn! Not needin' nothin' or nobody to get me by! Just like this guy! [Dolphin squeaks] Hmm, do you mean something like this? [Whiplash] [Music] [Gasp] That's even better! The open plain! That's where I wanna go! I think I know just the place.
I'll get you there! Thank you! Hup! All right, all right I-if this is how it's gotta be I'll support Ruby in her quest for emotional growth.
Yeehaw! Pa pow! Pa pow! Hup! Bang bang bang!! Woo-hoo! [Engine sputtering] [Brakes screeching] Y'all ready to Wild West it up? [Western Music] [Whiplash crack] [Footsteps] [Western guitar music] Here I am.
On the open range.
At least you understand me, Horsey.
Oh! Ruby, you need a steed! I'm always down for a little horsin' around [Grunting] [Whinnying] Giddyup.
[Eagle call] [Horse clops] How's it goin, Ruby? Feel like a real cowboy now? Yep.
I sure reckon I do.
Sorry I gotta be a yellow belly about this, but we don't even have a map.
I think we're just gonna get ourselves lost.
[Snorts] I already am lost.
That's why I came out here to find myself.
It's a dead end.
This is what I mean.
What's behind this brush? I don't know! Sapphire ain't here to predict for me.
This is my chance to find out for myself! Hup! Aaahhh! Oh jiminy! Ruby?! [Panting] Wh Whoa! I had no idea this ravine was here! Huh! I almost fell down there and it was all my choice! Yee haw! Independence! [Laughing & cheering] [Country music] This ol' Ruby rider Is Ruby ridin' alone She's a sturdy Solitary stone This ol' Ruby rider Not a fusion no more Now the dirt and the dust And the danger is my new home [Music continues] I used to think I Would always be by your side But lately you've been rather cold - Ah-ah-ah - One look in your eye Could make an honest gem cry But Ruby Rider don't need no one to hold [Whistling] Wow, Ruby's really getting into this.
Seriously! I just taught her how to play guitar like ten minutes ago! No, Dad, I-I mean the whole "cowboy being alone" thing.
I've never seen her like this before.
She seems really happy.
[Music continues] This ol' Ruby rider Is Ruby ridin' alone She's a sturdy Solitary stone Yeehaw.
[snoring] [Snoring whinny] - Hey Ruby! - Hm? Y'know I got-really scared when you said you didn't wanna fuse with Sapphire anymore.
I felt like I was losing someone I cared about, but I saw how much fun you were having today.
All this buckerooing really suits you.
I'm sorry I tried to push you back into being Garnet.
It's not true.
- Huh? - That stuff I sang about It's not true! W-w-what?! I mean I did have a lot of fun today.
I loved it! But the whole time I [Sighs] I kept thinking about how much more fun I'd have if I were with her.
Sapphire was always there with me.
I'd feel her smile just like it was mine It's so lonely now.
[Groans] That's lame, right?! I came here to be my own gem, but I'm still thinking about what she'd like, what she'd want, all the time! Turns out I'm no good at not needin' nobody.
C'mon, that's not lame! You led us on a frontier adventure! You're still the same Ruby who did all that stuff, even if you're thinking of someone.
Look at our friend Lonesome Lasso.
They call him that 'cause he's lonesome! "I miss Sally May!" He's still a rootin' tootin' cowboy blazin' his own trails.
But he loves someone too.
Well, if I'm makin my own decisions, then I'll decide I wanna be with Sapphire.
[Sighs] I mean, I gotta ask her first.
I just don't want it to feel like we're going back to how things used to be back when someone else told us to be together.
I want it to feel different.
Wait a sec! What do you think of this?! [Gasp] [Gulls crying] [Door creaks] [Gasp] Steven! Did you find Ruby?! She's outside.
She's got something to say to you.
[Music] Ruby! Ruby, I'm so sorry!! I should've never said those awful things to you, that we didn't matter anymore.
I shouldn't've pushed you away like that.
I was wrong! [Music] Pa-tooey.
Nah.
.
you were right.
Hup! [Whinnies] Someone else told us we were the answer.
But I don't believe that anymore.
At least not till I hear it from you.
[Music] Sapphire Will you marry me?! What?! [Laughing] Marry you?! Yeah! This way we can be together even when we're apart! This time, being Garnet will be our decision! Whaddaya say?! - Of course! - Yee-haw!! Mmnngg.
I've been waiting to kiss your cute face! Woo! [Laughs] Aaaaaah!! Psst.
It's me.
I'm a horse.
[Music] [Laughing]
