Transcript

  • Rainbow Dash
Whoo-hoo!
  • Applejack
Hoo-wee! Not a bad pitch for a pony who works with her head in the clouds.
  • Rainbow Dash
Oh yeah? Think you can do better, cowgirl?
  • Applejack
I know I can. Oh, for Pete's sake!
  • Rainbow Dash
Heh! Looks like this Pegasus can pitch better than the workhorse. The object of the game is to get the closest to the stake.
  • Applejack
All right, all right. You got another throw there, pony girl.
  • Applejack
Wow, Rainbow, heh. You couldn't hit a barn door with that kind of a throw!
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah, yeah. I still have the closest throw, Applesmack. Just try and beat it.
  • Applejack
Yee-haw! It's a ringer. That's how you do it down here on the farm.
  • Rainbow Dash
I lost.
  • Applejack
Ah, don't feel bad, Rainbow. It's all in good fun.
  • Rainbow Dash
I hate losing.
  • Applejack
Besides, you're a mighty good athlete. I'm just better. Heh heh heh.
  • Rainbow Dash
All right, Applejack, you think you're the top athlete in all of Ponyville?
  • Applejack
Well, I was gonna say in all of Equestria, but that might be gildin' the lily.
  • Rainbow Dash
...and I think I'm the top athlete. So let's prove it.
  • Applejack
Prove what?
  • Rainbow Dash
I challenge you to an Iron Pony competition. A series of athletic contests to decide who's the best, once and for all.
  • Applejack
You know what, Rainbow? You're on.
  • Twilight Sparkle
So you two are doing what, now?
  • Applejack
An Iron—
  • Rainbow Dash
Iron Pony competition.
  • Applejack
See, we've set up a bunch of events to decide which one of us is—
  • Rainbow Dash
The most athletic pony ever!
  • Twilight Sparkle
And I'm here to...?
  • Rainbow Dash
I don't know. Why is she here?
  • Applejack
To be our judge and keep score.
  • Rainbow Dash
Right, heh. Somepony's gotta record my awesomeness for the history books.
  • Spike
Hello everypony, and welcome to the first annual Iron Pony competition!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Uh, Spike, who are you talking to?
  • Spike
Um... Uh, them! Let the games begin!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Ready. Set. Go!
  • Applejack
Dagnabbit.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Time, Spike?
  • Spike
17 seconds.
  • Applejack
You're kiddin'! That breaks my record from last year's rodeo.
  • Spike
But you got a five second penalty for nudging the barrel.
  • Applejack
Nuts and chews! Still, that's 22 seconds. Not too shabby. Hey, don't be nervous. Remember, it's all in good fun. Now git on up there.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Ready. Set. Go!
  • Applejack
Woo! That was some fancy hoofwork there, Rainbow!
  • Rainbow Dash
Thanks, but I couldn't have been as fast as you.
  • Applejack
What was the time on that, Spike?
  • Spike
18 seconds!
  • Applejack
18 seconds. Rainbow, are you sure you're not secretly a rodeo pony?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Rainbow Dash wins the barrel lead!
  • Rainbow Dash
Oh, I can't believe I won.
  • Applejack
Yeah, well, don't you go gettin' used to it.
  • Applejack
Mighty respectable, but let me show ya how it's really done.
  • Applejack
Years of applebuckin'.
  • Rainbow Dash
Ugh.
  • Granny Smith
Waa-hoo!
  • Apple Bloom
Whoo-hoo!
  • Big McIntosh
Eeyup!
  • Spike
Why me?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Go!
  • Spike
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa-hoa! Whoa! Whoaaa! Ouch.
  • Rainbow Dash
Ready for another pony ride?
  • Spike
No.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Go!
  • Spike
Guh guh guh guh guh guh guh guh guh guh guh guhwhoaaaaaa!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Rainbow Dash wins the bronco-buck.
  • Spike
And I lose.
  • Spike
Whoa! How do I get roped into these things?
  • Rainbow Dash
Does this count?
  • Rainbow Dash
Yuh!
  • Applejack
Wah!
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah.
  • Spike
Fillies and gentlecolts, at the halfway point, our competitors are tied at five and five.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Who are you talking to?
  • Spike
Them!
  • Twilight Sparkle
95, 96, 97, 98, 99... a hundred!
  • Rainbow Dash
Yes!
  • Applejack
Be a good sport, Applejack.
  • Twilight Sparkle
All right, you two. This is the final event. Give it all you've got.
  • Spike
Looks like the workhorse might come out ahead in this one.
  • Applejack
That's not fair. You can't use your wings to help you win.
  • Rainbow Dash
Huh?
  • Applejack
You're cheatin'!
  • Rainbow Dash
I can't understand you with that rope in your mouth.
  • Applejack
I said... uh-oh.
  • Rainbow Dash
Whoo-hoo! I win by a landslide... or mudslide in your case. I am the Iron Pony!
  • Applejack
Only 'cause you cheated.
  • Rainbow Dash
What?
  • Applejack
You used your wingpower to help you win over half those contests.
  • Rainbow Dash
Sounds like sour apples to me.
  • Applejack
Are you sayin' you didn't use your wings?
  • Rainbow Dash
Well... no. But you never said I couldn't use my wings.
  • Applejack
I didn't think I needed to tell you to play fair.
  • Rainbow Dash
I still would have won even without my wings.
  • Applejack
Hah! Prove it.
  • Rainbow Dash
Gladly. How?
  • Applejack
Tomorrow is the annual Runnin' of the Leaves. I challenge you to race me in it.
  • Rainbow Dash
Heh! Easy shmeasy.
  • Applejack
Hold on! There is one condition: the point is to run, so no wings allowed.
  • Rainbow Dash
No wings? No problem.
  • Spike
Twilight, hurry up, we're gonna be late for the race.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Why are you so excited about the race? It's only for ponies.
  • Spike
Yeah, but I'm hoping I can be the announcer again. Just listen: Fillies and gentlecolts, welcome to the annual Running of the--
  • Pinkie Pie
Welcome to the annual Running of the Leaves! This is Pinkie Pie, your official p-eye-in-the-sky announcer.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Sorry, Spike. I guess that job's already taken.
  • Pinkie Pie
As everypony knows, the Running is a very important tradition, for without it, the autumn leaves of Equestria would never fall. So get ready, ponies. The Running of the Leaves will begin in five minutes.
  • Rainbow Dash
Pardon me, excuse me. Make way for the Iron Pony.
  • Applejack
The Iron Phony, you mean.
  • Rainbow Dash
So, Applejack, you ready to win second place?
  • Applejack
I'm ready to run a good, clean race.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah, yeah...
  • Applejack
You are not allowed to use your wings.
  • Rainbow Dash
I could win this race with both wings tied behind my back.
  • Applejack
Trussed up like a turkey. Well, a turkey who can't fly, that is.
  • Rainbow Dash
Very funny.
  • Applejack
'Least now we know we're racin' fair and square.
  • Pinkie Pie
Racers! Please take your positions!
  • Spike
Um... Pinkie Pie?
  • Pinkie Pie
Hey, Spike! What's up? Oh wait, it's me! I'm up!
  • Spike
Uh, yeah. I know you're doing the announcing today and stuff and... I'm sure you're gonna do a great job and all, but... I was just wondering...
  • Pinkie Pie
What?
  • Spike
Aw... Forget it.
  • Pinkie Pie
Spike! Would you like to be my co-reporter? We could comment on the action together.
  • Spike
We could?
  • Pinkie Pie
Climb on up.
  • Applejack
Twilight? What in tarnation are you doin' up here?
  • Twilight Sparkle
I'm racing.
  • Rainbow Dash
Good one, Twilight.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I'm not joking.
  • Rainbow Dash
What? You're not an athlete, you're a... well... you're an egghead.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I am not an egghead, I am well-read.
  • Rainbow Dash
Egghead.
  • Applejack
But have you ever run a race?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well, no, but I do know a lot about running.
  • Rainbow Dash
And you know this from...
  • Twilight Sparkle
Books. I've read several on the subject.
  • Rainbow Dash
What'd you read, "The Egghead's Guide to Running"? Did you stretch out your eye muscles to warm up? Get it? Eye muscles.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Scoff if you must, Rainbow. But the Running of the Leaves is a Ponyville tradition, and since I'm here to learn, I've decided I should experience it myself.
  • Applejack
Well, I think that's just dandy, Twilight. Good luck.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah. See you at the finish line... Tomorrow.
  • Pinkie Pie
All right, ponies, are you ready?
  • Spike
Get set.
  • Pinkie Pie
And they're off!
  • Pinkie Pie
Welcome to the official coverage of the Running of the Leaves! You know, Spike, despite its name, the leaves don't do any of the actual running. No, that's left to my little ponies.
  • Spike
Why, yes, Pinkie, it's the running of the ponies that causes the leaves to fall.
  • Pinkie Pie
Ugh. Those lazy, lazy leaves. But this year, the run is about more than the weather. It's about the race to the finish and the two runners who want to win it: Applejack and Rainbow Dash.
  • Spike
You know, Pinkie, these two ponies have a bit of a grudge match they're trying to settle. Trying to prove who's the most athletic.
  • Pinkie Pie
Yes, and "grudge" rhymes with "fudge".
  • Spike
Yes, it... does. What?
  • Pinkie Pie
And I like fudge. But if I eat too much fudge I get a pudge and then I can't budge.
  • Spike
So... no fudge?
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh, no thanks. I had a big breakfast. Let's check in with our two competitive ponies, Applejack and Rainbow Dash. Having come fast out of the gate, Applejack and Rainbow Dash are evenly matched running neck and neck. But what's this? Applejack is making a move, she's now ahead by a nose. But Rainbow Dash won't let Applejack have it and takes the lead. She's ahead by half a nose. Or maybe three quarters of a nose. No, about sixty-three point seven percent of a nose... roughly speaking. Applejack sees this move and pushes forth with her strong workhorse legs slinking ahead by three hundred and fifty noses!
  • Applejack
Not so easy without wings, is it?
  • Rainbow Dash
Come on, Rainbow. Show 'em a little dash.
  • Spike
Ho-hold your horses, Pinkie! Rainbow Dash is catching up the frontrunner Applejack!
  • Pinkie Pie
What an upset. I thought Applejack had this in the bag.
  • Rainbow Dash
You didn't think I was gonna let you off that easily, did you?
  • Applejack
Whoa! I don't believe it.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I know, it's beautiful, isn't it?
  • Applejack
Not the scenery, Twilight. Rainbow Dash just tripped me.
  • Twilight Sparkle
She did not.
  • Applejack
She did too!
  • Twilight Sparkle
She did not, and if you slowed down and looked where you're going, like me, you'd see that you tripped over a rock.
  • Applejack
What? Oh, hayseed! Now I got a lot of ground to make up to catch Rainbow.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Just be careful!
  • Applejack
See you at the finish line!
  • Spike
I don't believe it. After a huge setback, Applejack is back at the front of the pack.
  • Pinkie Pie
She's the head of the pack, all right. The pick of the litter! The cat's pajamas! Oh wait, why would Applejack take some poor kitty's PJs? That's not very sporting of her.
  • Spike
Oookay... Let's get back to the race.
  • Rainbow Dash
Not so fast, Applejack! This race isn't over yet!
  • Applejack
It is for you. Heh.
  • Rainbow Dash
Whoa! Guh, I don't believe it, Applejack tripped me.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Don't you ponies ever look where you're going? You tripped on a stump. See?
  • Rainbow Dash
Oh, I see. A big cheater is what I see.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Rainbow, Applejack would never cheat. It was just an accident.
  • Rainbow Dash
Sure it was. I mean, yeah, I'm sure it was.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Remember, Rainbow, this is just a game.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yes, but the rules have changed, and two can play at that game.
  • Pinkie Pie
Welcome back, Ponyvillians, it's me, Pinkie Pie.
  • Spike
And Spike. Looks like Rainbow is doing her best to catch up.
  • Pinkie Pie
I'm not sure how ketchup is going to help her in this contest. Now, in a hot dog eating contest it can make them doggies nice and slippery, but personally, I prefer mustard. How about you, Spike?
  • Spike
Uh... I... like... pickles?
  • Pinkie Pie
Aaand it looks like Applejack has found herself in quite a pickle as Rainbow overtakes her.
  • Rainbow Dash
Look, ma, no wings.
  • Spike
As the racers enter Equestria's Whitetail Wood, Rainbow Dash is back in the lead.
  • Applejack
Ugh. Hey, Rainbow!
  • Applejack
Why, that little cheater did that on purpose. It's on.
  • Rainbow Dash
Nice one, Rainbow.
  • Applejack
Later!
  • Rainbow Dash
Aaa!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh my, Whitetail Wood is just lovely. Hey, Rainbow, shouldn't you be up ahead?
  • Rainbow Dash
I'm sure I'll win now.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Except that the other racers just passed you.
  • Rainbow Dash
Oh horse apples... See ya!
  • Pinkie Pie
Applejack, what are you doing up here?
  • Spike
There aren't even any trees.
  • Applejack
Er, no, but the sign's pointed this way... Rainbow. Mind giving me a lift?
  • Rainbow Dash
What the hay?! You said no flying!
  • Applejack
No, I said no wings.
  • Pinkie Pie
I must say, Spike, that this has been the most interesting Running of the Leaves in Equestria history!
  • Spike
With the most interesting announcing.
  • Pinkie Pie
But it isn't the running that's been fascinating. It's the lack of running!
  • Rainbow Dash
Aaa!
  • Applejack
Whoa!
  • Rainbow Dash
Whoa!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Forgive me, girls. I know I'm not an athlete, but shouldn't the Running of the Leaves actually involve running?
  • Rainbow Dash
You know, I think Twilight's right.
  • Applejack
You do?
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah! If you wanna beat me, you better... RUUUN!
  • Pinkie Pie
Once again, Rainbow Dash and Applejack are neck and neck, jockeying for position. Applejack inches ahead, now it's Rainbow, it's Applejack, it's Rainbow Dash, it's Applejack--
  • Spike
Oh no, she di'int!
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh yes, she di'id!
  • Applejack
Cut it out!
  • Rainbow Dash
No, you cut it out!
  • Applejack
You started it.
  • Rainbow Dash
And now I'm gonna finish it.
  • Applejack
Oh no, you won't.
  • Rainbow Dash
Oh yes, I will. That's it! All bets are off!
  • Applejack
Oh no, you don't.
  • Pinkie Pie
It's Applejack, it's Rainbow Dash, it's Applejack, it's Rainbow Dash--
  • Rainbow Dash
I won!
  • Applejack
No, I won!
  • Rainbow Dash
I won!
  • Spike
You tied!
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
Tied?!
  • Applejack
For first?
  • Pinkie Pie
For last!
  • Applejack
Last?!
  • Rainbow Dash
Then who won?
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
You?!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh no, but I did get fifth place, which is rather good considering I've never run a race before.
  • Applejack
What? How's that even possible?
  • Rainbow Dash
You ran so slow, and looked at the scenery.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Exactly. I paced myself, just like my book said. Then at the end, when all the other ponies were worn out, I sprinted to the finish.
  • Rainbow Dash
I don't believe it. Twilight beat us.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well, with all your horsing around, it was quite easy.
  • Applejack
You're right, Twilight. Our behavior was just terrible.
  • Rainbow Dash
We weren't very good sports.
  • Princess Celestia
Sounds to me that an important lesson was learned.
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
Princess Celestia?!
  • Applejack
W-What are you doin' here?
  • Princess Celestia
Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I came to celebrate the Running of the Leaves.
  • Applejack
I'm sorry you had to see us being such poor sports, Princess.
  • Princess Celestia
That's all right, Applejack. Anypony can get swept up in the excitement of competition.
  • Twilight Sparkle
It's important to remember that the friendship is always more important than the competition.
  • Princess Celestia
Exactly, Twilight. Now, unfortunately, because the two of you were busy tricking each other instead of shaking down leaves, many of the lovely trees of Equestria are still covered.
  • Applejack
Why, Princess, I bet we can knock those leaves down for you lickety-split. Whaddya say, friend? Wanna go for another run?
  • Rainbow Dash
I'd love to stretch my legs.
