Transcript

  • Fluttershy
Lunch time! Who's hungry?
  • Fluttershy
Plenty for everypony. Slow down, sweetie.
  • Fluttershy
Here you go, Angel bunny.
  • Fluttershy
Okay, Mister Picky-pants, you win. Carrots, lettuce and apples, yum-yum-yum!
  • Fluttershy
What? But... Well then, what will you eat? I'm not sure I can even make that. Well... I don't want you to starve... Oh, are you sure I can't tempt you with a nice crisp piece of–
  • Fluttershy
I'll make your special recipe.
  • Fluttershy
Hmm, let's see. Asparagus. Excuse me, um, I think you just stepped in front of me? Excuse me, I think you made a mistake? You see I was actually here first and–
  • Lucy Packard
Sorry, didn't notice you there.
  • Fluttershy
I know.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, pardon me, sir–
  • Geri
Yes, what?
  • Fluttershy
I think you just cut in front of me.
  • Geri
A cut of celery? But– this is the asparagus stand!
  • Fluttershy
I said I think you just cut in front of me.
  • Geri
Ohoh, no need, dearie, I'm already in front!
  • Fluttershy
I noticed.
  • Turf
...And I was like, 'Oh, wow.'
  • Fluttershy
Hey!
  • Turf
Would you mind moving back? You're in my personal space.
  • Fluttershy
But–
  • Surf
Seriously, do you need your asparagus so badly? Get a life.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, okay. There's no rush.
  • Rarity
Fluttershy, you mustn't let them treat you that way.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, it's-it's really no big deal...
  • Pinkie Pie
It's bigger than big. It's double big. You are a pony with a problem.
  • Fluttershy
What problem? Oh, go right ahead, Pinkie Pie. You first.
  • Pinkie Pie
Right there! That's the problem.
  • Rarity
You've got to stop being such a doormat.
  • Fluttershy
A doormat?
  • Rarity
A pushover, darling. You've got to stand up for yourself, promise us.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, okay. I promise. Oh! Good!
  • Fluttershy
Oh, that's okay, I don't mind.
  • Rarity
Watch and learn. Hold it right there, Mister small and handsome.
  • Gizmo
Uh, who, me?
  • Rarity
Oh, of course you. Nopony ever called you handsome before?
  • Gizmo
Uhh, that'd be a big no.
  • Rarity
Oh, well, they should! How about flexing some of your muscles for me? Oh, my heavens! Do you think a strong, handsome stallion such as yourself could give my friend the last asparagus?
  • Gizmo
Nuhh.
  • Rarity
See, that's not so hard, is it?
  • Fluttershy
Um... I guess not.
  • Rarity
Alright then! What else is on your list?
  • Fluttershy
Let's see... I also need tomatoes.
  • Fluttershy
Here you go.
  • Roma
That'll be two bits. Not one.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, but last week, it was only one bit.
  • Roma
That was then, this is now.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, okay. I don't wanna argue about it.
  • Pinkie Pie
What do you think you're doing?
  • Roma
Mindin' my own business, maybe you should try it.
  • Pinkie Pie
Two bits for tomatoes is outrageous. One bit is the right price.
  • Roma
I say it's two bits.
  • Pinkie Pie
One bit.
  • Roma
Two bits!
  • Pinkie Pie
One bit!
  • Roma
Two bits!
  • Pinkie Pie
One bit!
  • Roma
Two bits!
  • Pinkie Pie
Two bits!
  • Roma
One bit!
  • Pinkie Pie
Two bits!
  • Roma
One bit!
  • Pinkie Pie
I insist it's two bits or nothing!
  • Roma
One bit and that's my final offer!
  • Pinkie Pie
Have it your way, one bit it is!
  • Pinkie Pie
See? Asserting yourself can be fun!
  • Fluttershy
I guess you're right!
  • Rarity
So, Fluttershy, do you feel like giving it a try?
  • Fluttershy
Um... okay. I need that cherry. Boy, am I glad you have one cherry left. You see, I'm making this special meal for my bunny Angel. He's a very picky eater, and the recipe calls for a cherry on top.
  • Fluttershy
Here you go.
  • Crafty Crate
So, you say you need this cherry 'very badly'.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, yes, I'm desperate for it!
  • Crafty Crate
Then it'll be ten bits!
  • Fluttershy
Ten?! Oh, hey, mister handsome, I know you wanna do the right thing because you're handsome and strong, and big, handsome, strong guys are always nice to everypony, right?
  • Crafty Crate
Ten bits for the cherry.
  • Fluttershy
Ten bits for one cherry's outrageous! I insist on paying you... eleven bits!
  • Crafty Crate
Eleven bits?
  • Fluttershy
Umm...I mean, nine bits!
  • Crafty Crate
Er, now wait a minute.
  • Fluttershy
Okay, twelve bits, but that's my final offer!
  • Crafty Crate
I think you're confused.
  • Fluttershy
It's twelve bits, take it or leave it.
  • Crafty Crate
Okay, I'll take it!
  • Pinkie Pie
Don't give him your money! One cherry is not worth twelve bits!
  • Fluttershy
But... I was only doing what you did.
  • Rarity
It was a valiant effort, but you should refuse to give him your business and just walk away.
  • Fluttershy
But... I can't let Angel starve! He won't eat it unless I make it just right! I need that cherry no matter what it costs!
  • Crafty Crate
In that case, twenty bits!
  • Fluttershy
Twenty?! Oh, but, I don't have that much!
  • Crafty Crate
Then why're you wasting my time?
  • Lemon Hearts
I'll give you two bits for that cherry!
  • Crafty Crate
Sold! Eh, tough break, kid. Next time, don't be such a doormat.
  • Fluttershy
Ta-da! Here you go, Angel. Sorry there's no cherry on top, but the rest of it is exactly what you wanted. Angel? Look at me... I really am a doormat. "The incredible Iron Will turns doormats into dynamos. Assertiveness seminar today, hedge maze centre." As Celestia is my witness, I'm never gonna be a pushover again!
  • Fluttershy
Oh! Ah! Uh... excuse me!
  • Iron Will
Welcome, friends! My name is Iron Will, and today is the first day of your new life! I wanna hear you stomp if you're tired of being a pushover!
  • Iron Will
Stomp if you're tired of being a doormat!
  • Iron Will
Stomp if you wanna pay nothing for this seminar!
  • Iron Will
That's no joke, friends. Iron Will is so confident that you will be one hundred percent satisfied with Iron Will's assertiveness techniques, that if you are not one hundred percent satisfied, you. Pay. Nothing. But I pity the fool who doubts Iron Will's methods! You don't doubt me, do you?
  • Meadow Song
Uh-uh, no sir...
  • Iron Will
That, my friends, is your first lesson. "Don't be shy; look 'em in the eye."
  • Iron Will
Now, to demonstrate that Iron Will's techniques will work for anypony, I'm gonna need a volunteer.
  • Iron Will
You in the back row!
  • Fluttershy
Who, me?
  • Iron Will
Yes, you! Iron Will wants you onstage!
  • Fluttershy
Uh, well...
  • Iron Will
Now!
  • Fluttershy
Okay.
  • Iron Will
Whoaa! He's blocking your path. What are you gonna do about it?
  • Fluttershy
Um, politely walk around him?
  • Iron Will
No.
  • Fluttershy
Gingerly tip-toe around him?
  • Iron Will
No!
  • Fluttershy
Go back home and try again tomorrow?
  • Iron Will
No! "When somepony tries to block, show them that you rock!"
  • Fluttershy
Oh! Sorry.
  • Iron Will
Don't be sorry! Be assertive! "Never apologize when you can criticize." why don't you watch where you're going!? Now, you try.
  • Fluttershy
Uh... next time, get out of the way before... I bump into you, 'cause... I totally won't be sorry when I do!
  • Iron Will
You see my friends!? If my techniques can work for this shy, little pony, then they can work for anypony!
  • Fluttershy
Okay, I feel good. I feel ready to "attack the day", as Iron Will says.
  • Fluttershy
Excuse me, Mr. Greenhooves, but I-I think you might be over-watering my petunias...
  • Fluttershy
...again.
  • Mr. Greenhooves
Let the professional handle it.
  • Fluttershy
"Treat me like a pushover, and you'll get the once over."
  • Mr. Greenhooves
Hm? Hmm... Well, perhaps that is enough water.
  • Fluttershy
Thank you. I can't believe it worked!
  • Cherry Berry
Showpony business is tough.
  • Sweetie Drops
Go ahead, try one of your jokes out on me. I laugh at everything.
  • Cherry Berry
Okay, okay, okay. A donkey and a mule are stuck on a desert island...
  • Fluttershy
Excuse me? Would you mind moving your carts so I can pass?
  • Cherry Berry
Yeah yeah, in a minute, I just wanna finish up this story. And so the donkey says to the mule–
  • Fluttershy
A-hemmmm, can you move? You're blocking my path.
  • Cherry Berry
Yeah yeah, in a minute! So the donkey says to the mule... (Why don't we build a boat to get off this island?)
  • Fluttershy
"When somepony tries to block, show them that you rock!"
  • Cherry Berry
...and the mule says–
  • Cherry Berry
Ugh! Easy does it, lady. We're moving, okay?
  • Fluttershy
Good!
  • Pinkie Pie
Who's next please? And what can I get for you today?
  • Fluttershy
What do you think you're doing?! Didn't you see me?
  • Shoeshine
Uh, I guess maybe.
  • Fluttershy
'Maybe'? "Maybes are for babies!" Now go to the back of the line where you belong!
  • Pinkie Pie
Heyyy, look at you!
  • Rarity
Oh, your attitude is so feisty, it's fabulous.
  • Pinkie Pie
Looks like that monster's workshop really paid off!
  • Fluttershy
Iron Will's not a monster. He's a minotaur, and a true inspiration. His techniques really work.
  • Rarity
Well, they've certainly made a difference in the way you carry yourself. You truly are a whole new Fluttershy.
  • Fluttershy
Yes I am. And new Fluttershy feels pretty stoked about new Fluttershy.
  • Pinkie Pie
Well, old Pinkie Pie feels really proud of new Fluttershy. Proud as pink punch. Want some?
  • Fluttershy
"You laugh at me, I wrath at you!"
  • Fluttershy
Bye, girls. What a day. Taxi! Oh no you don't. "Cut in line, I'll take what's mine!"
  • Royal Riff
Aieeeeee! Ow...
  • Fluttershy
Nopony pushes new Fluttershy around! Nopony!
  • Pinkie Pie
Old Pinkie Pie is not so sure new Fluttershy is such a good idea after all.
  • Rarity
Old Rarity agrees.
  • Fluttershy
You got this, new Fluttershy! This day is yours! And nopony's gonna take it away from you! Am I right?! Right! What?! He's delivered the wrong mail, again!
  • Mr. Zippy
Oh–
  • Fluttershy
And new Fluttershy does not want the wrong mail delivered to her cottage.
  • Mr. Zippy
Ohh, did I mix 'em up again? Sorry about that.
  • Fluttershy
"You apologize, I penalize!"
  • Mr. Zippy
Oh!
  • Globe Trotter
Excuse me, do you know how to get to the Ponyville tower?
  • Fluttershy
Sure, you just–
  • Globe Trotter
Oh, that's a shame.
  • Fluttershy
"You make me lose, I blow my fuse!"
  • Globe Trotter
Hey!
  • Rarity
Fluttershy! What are you doing?! That's no way to behave!
  • Fluttershy
Didn't you see what he did to new Fluttershy? And he thought new Fluttershy was a pushover!
  • Rarity
No, sweetie, he didn't. We saw the whole thing. We think that you've taken your assertiveness training a little too far.
  • Fluttershy
What?! You just want new Fluttershy to be a doormat like old Fluttershy! But old Fluttershy is gone!
  • Pinkie Pie
New Fluttershy? Old Fluttershy!?
  • Rarity
What happened to nice Fluttershy? We want that Fluttershy back.
  • Fluttershy
No, you want wimp Fluttershy. You want pushover Fluttershy. You want do-anything-to-her-and-she-won't-complain Fluttershy!
  • Pinkie Pie
Nyaaaaah! Too many Fluttershys to keep track of! Make it stop!
  • Fluttershy
Things getting too complicated for your simple little brain, Pinkie Pie?
  • Rarity
Now, stop right there! Let's not let things descend into petty insults!
  • Fluttershy
Why not? I thought 'petty' was what you're all about, Rarity. With your 'petty' concerns about fashion.
  • Pinkie Pie
Hey, leave her alone! Fashion is her passion!
  • Fluttershy
Oh, and what are you passionate about? Birthday cake? Party hats? I can't believe that the two most frivolous ponies in Ponyville are trying to tell new Fluttershy how to live her life when they are throwing their own lives away on pointless pursuits that nopony else gives a flying feather about!
  • Pinkie Pie
Looks like nasty Fluttershy is here to stay!
  • Rarity
I cannot believe what that monster Iron Will has done to you!
  • Fluttershy
Iron Will's not a monster, he's a minotaur! I'm the monster.
  • Rarity
Fluttershy, are you in there?
  • Pinkie Pie
It's Pinkie Pie and Rarity!
  • Fluttershy
Go away! Go away before nasty Fluttershy strikes again!
  • Rarity
Oh, sweetie, we all said things that we regret.
  • Pinkie Pie
We did?
  • Rarity
Shh.
  • Fluttershy
Pinkie's right. I'm the only one to blame. But don't worry, I'm never coming out of my house again. Everypony will be a lot safer with me and my mean mouth locked away.
  • Rarity
Sweetie, Pinkie Pie doesn't blame you, nor do I. You just received some bad advice from that Iron Will character.
  • Pinkie Pie
Yeah! He's the one that made you act super-duper nasty. What I mean is, there are other ways to assert yourself besides yelling at everypony.
  • Rarity
Yes! You can stand up for yourself without being unpleasant about it.
  • Fluttershy
I-I'm not sure I can. I'm too far gone. Whenever I try to assert myself, I become a monster.
  • Rarity
Oh, sweetie, you're not a monster.
  • Pinkie Pie
No, but he is.
  • Iron Will
Iron Will's my name, training ponies is my game.
  • Rarity
What a darling little catchphrase.
  • Iron Will
Your friend Fluttershy loved Iron Will's catchphrases. Word on the street is that she doesn't take no guff from nopony! So, Iron Will is here to collect Iron Will's fee.
  • Pinkie Pie
Fluttershy is in no shape to deal with that creep!
  • Rarity
I'm sure a big, brave, powerful, and rich monster– I mean, minotaur like you doesn't need that money right away. You can afford to come back later.
  • Iron Will
Are you kidding? Fluttershy is overdue as it is. Iron Will collects now.
  • Rarity
Do something!
  • Pinkie Pie
We're not even sure Fluttershy is home right now. Uh, she might be off frolicking with some woodland creatures. Uh, why don't you give us some time to track her down for ya?
  • Iron Will
Iron Will does have some grocery shopping to do. Iron Will will come back this afternoon.
  • Pinkie Pie
But that's only half a day. We need one full day at least.
  • Iron Will
Iron Will will delay for half a day and no longer!
  • Pinkie Pie
A full day!
  • Iron Will
Half day!
  • Pinkie Pie
Full day!
  • Iron Will
Half day!
  • Pinkie Pie
Half day!
  • Iron Will
Full day!
  • Pinkie Pie
We need half a day and no more!
  • Iron Will
Well, you'll get a full day and no less!
  • Pinkie Pie
Okie-dokie. See you tomorrow.
  • Iron Will
Wait, what?
  • Iron Will
Huh, sounds like the search won't be necessary. Iron Will collects now.
  • Pinkie Pie
But we had an agreement! You gotta come back tomorrow!
  • Iron Will
"When somepony tries to block, show them that you rock!"
  • Iron Will
Your payment is overdue, Fluttershy!
  • Iron Will
You were nothing but a doormat, and Iron Will turned you into a lean, mean, assertive machine! Now, pay Iron Will what you owe Iron Will!
  • Fluttershy
Um, no.
  • Iron Will
What did you say?
  • Fluttershy
No.
  • Iron Will
Ohhh, I'd hate to be you right now, because Iron Will is gonna to rain down a world of hurt unless Iron Will gets his money pronto!
  • Fluttershy
As I recall, during your workshop you promised one hundred percent satisfaction guaranteed, or you pay nothing. Well, I'm not satisfied.
  • Iron Will
What do you mean you're not satisfied?! Everypony has always been satisfied!
  • Fluttershy
Well, I guess I'm the first then. But since I'm not satisfied, I refuse to pay. It's as simple as that.
  • Iron Will
Ohh, are you... sure you're not just a little bit satisfied? B-because maybe... we could cut a deal. I-I mean we're both reasonable creatures, aren't we?
  • Fluttershy
I'm sorry, but no means no.
  • Iron Will
No means no, huh? Nopony's ever said that to me before. Huh... I gotta remember that one. That's a good catchphrase for my next workshop.
  • Pinkie Pie
You were amazing, Fluttershy! You totally stood up to that monster!
  • Rarity
In fact, you didn't change at all! You were the same old Fluttershy that we've always loved!
  • Pinkie Pie
The one we missed!
  • Fluttershy
Don't worry, old Fluttershy's back for good. I'm sorry I took the whole assertiveness thing too far. Friends?
  • Rarity
  • Pinkie Pie
Friends.
  • Fluttershy
Dear Princess Celestia,
  • Fluttershy
Sometimes it can be hard for a shy pony like me to stand up for myself, and when I first tried it, I didn't like the pony I became. But I've learned that standing up for yourself isn't the same as changing who you are. Now I know how to put my hoof down without being unpleasant or mean.
