Transcript

  • Spike
There you are, Rarity! That's the last of your bags.
  • Rarity
Actually, Spike, I've got one last pile of bags, over there. Won't you be a dear?
  • Spike
Sure... I'll be a dear...
  • Rarity
An entire week in the fabulous city of Manehattan! Plus, all of my very best friends there with me!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Of course we'd all come along to support you during Fashion Week, Rarity!
  • Fluttershy
Not that you'll need it. We're sure you'll win.
  • Rarity
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that you'll all be there with me! However... Perhaps I can show you...
  • Twilight Sparkle
What's that?
  • Pinkie Pie
Ooh, ooh, ooh, I know! A paper fan!
  • Rarity
No, it's—
  • Pinkie Pie
A magic trick! You know, where I pick a card and remember what it is and then you put it back in the deck so you can't look at it and—
  • Rarity
These are tickets to the hottest musical on Bridleway!
  • Twilight Sparkle
You couldn't mean Hinny of the Hills... because that show's been sold out for months! Or could you?!
  • Rarity
I could. I do.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, Rarity, you didn't have to do that, but... since you did...
  • Pinkie Pie
This trip is fun already! I love jumping up and down! Whee-hee!
  • Rarity
Come along, ponies! I found us a place to stay only a block from the train station in the very heart of this glorious metropolis!
  • Applejack
Hey, look! That's the theatre where Hinny of the Hills is playin'!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Wow, Rarity! How'd you manage to get us seats for tomorrow night?
  • Rarity
Oh, I gave some designs to the costume designer, so he pulled a few strings.
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
  • Pinkie Pie
Cool!
  • Rarity
That is what makes Manehattan so splendid and amazing. You do something nice for somepony, and then you never know when they'll do something nice for you!
  • Applejack
So then you can do something nice for us!
  • Fluttershy
Like get us in to see Hinny of the Hills!
  • Rainbow Dash
Which is only the best musical in all of Equestria!
  • Applejack
It must be good if Rainbow Dash is impressed. Normally she doesn't even like musicals.
  • Rainbow Dash
I know. Ponies just bursting into song in random places at the drop of a hat? Who does that?
  • Rarity
To think my dresses could soon be displayed on the most glamorous shopping thoroughfare of the most glamorous city in Equestria! Oh, it would be my dream come true!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Is there anything left to do we can help you with?
  • Rarity
Hm, nothing I can think of. The dresses are all completely finished, all made from a fabulous new fabric I've been developing for months. Stretchy, but not clingy. Shimmery, but not showy.
  • Fluttershy
Sounds amazing.
  • Rarity
There's nothing left for me to do but check in at the runway with my dresses by two this afternoon.
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh, that's funny. Because that clock over there makes it seem like that's only ten minutes from now!
  • Rarity
Oh, my ribbons and threads. And the runway ballroom is all the way across town! If I don't get there, I'm disqualified! Taaaaxiii!
  • Fluttershy
Oh, no! We've gotta help her find a cab, now!
  • Rainbow Dash
I'm on it! Hey, buddy! Is this cab taken?
  • Cherry Fizzy
The line ends back there, "buddy"!
  • Rainbow Dash
Huh? What? Does everypony in this town want a cab?
  • Rarity
I'm afraid getting a taxi at this time could prove almost impossible!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Please won't you let her have this taxi? She has somewhere very important to be right away!
  • Businesspony
Not likely! She can get in line like the rest of us!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, it's no use! The cab drivers just drive right past to get to the next pony in line!
  • Pronto
New wheel works like a charm! So now which of you nice folks are hoppin' in?
  • Rarity
Fashion runway plaza in seven minutes. Can you make it?
  • Pronto
Hang on!
  • Rarity
Ta-ta!
  • Spike
Whew, that was close.
  • Spike
Anypony else got a sneaking suspicion we're forgetting something?
  • Main cast sans Spike
The dresses!
  • Rarity
Good afternoon, I'm here for Fashion Week!
  • Grace
Everypony's gathered in front of the runway and about to start, so you'll just have to bring your dresses along with you and store them backstage later.
  • Rarity
My– My dresses! How could I possibly forget them?! I'm dooooomed!
  • Luggage Cart
Got 'em right here, ma'am! Your friends told me you need these in a hurry, so I offered to race 'em over myself. "Anything for that nice mare," I told 'em!
  • Rarity
You're a lifesaver!
  • Rarity
I made it! And with seconds to spare! Hello, everypony. Pleased to meet you all.
  • Prim Hemline
Rarity, I presume.
  • Rarity
You must be Prim Hemline, the host of this grand event. How do you—?
  • Prim Hemline
Miss Rarity, how is it that all your competitors are here half an hour early, and yet you arrive seconds before we begin?
  • Rarity
Uhhhh... Just... lucky, I guess.
  • Prim Hemline
Once we're done here, you're to finish setting up backstage, so you'll be ready for your run-through appointment. You show your designs last. We keep to a precise schedule, so let's try to be more than a few seconds early, hmm? Tomorrow is the contest to see which one of you gets to stay to meet top designers all across the city. The rest of you must go home early. So sad. Dismissed!
  • Suri Polomare
I'm so glad you made it, Rarity!
  • Rarity
Me too, but everything just seems to keep working out!
  • Suri Polomare
Don't you remember me? Suri Polomare from the Ponyville Knitters League?
  • Rarity
Oh, yes, of course, of course! I– I thought you looked familiar, but I couldn't place it. You haven't been back in years!
  • Suri Polomare
Because I moved here to make it in the big city. , okay?
  • Rarity
Oh, good for you, Sur—
  • Suri Polomare
Ooh, it's so good to see you! And now here we are, competing! , okay?
  • Rarity
Yes, yes. Well, good luck!
  • Suri Polomare
Oh, I don't need luck. Would you like a hoof with your things?
  • Rarity
Why, thank you so much!
  • Suri Polomare
My, your collection is gorgeous!
  • Rarity
Oh now, I'm sure your collection is equally lovely, if not more so!
  • Suri Polomare
It's alright, but nothing like this! Take my culottes, for example – they are simply crying out for just the right accent, but I haven't the slightest notion where I— Actually... just a touch of this fabric could be perfect with it. W– Oh, hey, would you mind terribly if I took a swatch?
  • Rarity
Oh, not at all! Here, I have loads extra.
  • Suri Polomare
You're sure?
  • Rarity
Positive! Oh, well, it's been wonderful getting caught up, and I don't wish to be rude, but I must finish my preparations and I am a bit late as it... is?
  • Rarity
Hello! I'm here half an hour early for my run-through appointment, just the way Prim likes!
  • Grace
Get in line over there. Oh my, that fabric's gorgeous, did you make that yourself?
  • Rarity
Oh, why, yes. It's stretchy, but not clingy. Shimmery—
  • Suri Polomare
Shimmery, but not showy. And the entire line is in the same adorable pattern. It works on everything from skirts to tops to shoes and, ...
  • Prim Hemline
Oh, bravo! I've never seen anything like it!
  • Rarity
You stole my fabric!
  • Suri Polomare
I didn't steal it, okay? You gave it to me, 'member?
  • Rarity
I gave you the fabric for accents! Not for your whole line! And how could you possibly make all of those outfits out of it so fast?!
  • Suri Polomare
Fast? Hah! Coco Pommel here took practically forever. Nearly got me completely disqualified.
  • Coco Pommel
Well, I wanted to make sure you'd win, so I took the extra time to—
  • Suri Polomare
Quiet! I pay an assistant to sew and get coffee, not talk. 'Kay?
  • Rarity
How could this happen?
  • Suri Polomare
Aw, sweetie, don't blame yourself. It takes some small-town fillies a while to learn it's everypony for herself in the big city, m'kay?
  • Suri Polomare
Hope you realize how fortunate you are to have me as a mentor. Now get me some coffee!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, my gosh, what a great afternoon! That was almost too much fun!
  • Rainbow Dash
Better pace yourself, 'cause the rest of the day is jam-packed!
  • Applejack
First there's the salon appointment to get our manes done.
  • Pinkie Pie
Then our fancy dinner at the Far-Afield Tavern!
  • Fluttershy
And after that...
  • Main cast sans Spike
Hinny of the Hills!
  • Rainbow Dash
Is... everything okay?
  • Pinkie Pie
You got the dresses the bellhop brought you and everything, right?
  • Rainbow Dash
But he said he brought them.
  • Rarity
And then Suri stole them! I let one of the other contestants use some of my one-of-a-kind fabric and then she turned it into a wardrobe just like mine, only now it looks like I'm the one copying her! My generosity has ruined me, I tell you! Ruined!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Now, Rarity, whatever went wrong, we're all here to help you get through it, no matter what it takes.
  • Applejack
Come on, Rarity, buck up! All we need is some fabric and you'll be back in business!
  • Rarity
This new line is going to be marvelous! Perhaps even better than the last! It's daring, it's bold! Perhaps I still have a chance after all!
  • Rarity
Twilight! Sew these pieces together according to that pattern there!
  • Twilight Sparkle
You said if we skipped dinner at the Far-Afield Tavern, you'd order a meal for us while we keep working.
  • Rarity
Don't fret. It'll be here in an hour. That's not going to be a problem, is it?
  • Rainbow Dash
Well, we're supposed to be watching Hinny of the Hills by then...
  • Rarity
Oh! I see! I go out of my way to get you tickets for a show, and this is how you repay me? By abandoning me in my hour of need? Oh, oh, oh! Fine! Go and see Hinny of the Hills tonight! And then tomorrow morning when you come to see my fashion show without any fashion to show, you can have more entertainment! "Oh, why look, there's our friend Rarity going down in flames! Isn't friendship magic?!"
  • Twilight Sparkle
Rarity, calm down. What's gotten into you?
  • Rarity
What's gotten into you?! Oh, go ahead! See your little show! Congratu-pony-lations, fillies! Sounds like you've all figured out already it's everypony for herself in this town!
  • Twilight Sparkle
There. That's the last of them.
  • Rarity
Finally!
  • Twilight Sparkle
You're welcome!
  • Prim Hemline
Let's have another round of applause for Suri Polomare's amazing collection.
  • Prim Hemline
That fabric! So original!
  • Suri Polomare
Well look who's here. Here to show off your copycat collection, mm? Heh.
  • Prim Hemline
And now, Rarity from Ponyville with her brand new line – and I mean "brand new" – Hotel Chic.
  • Rarity
Oh! They're liking it! I think I may have just won this thing! Oh, I can't wait to celebrate with... My friends. They didn't come. What have I done?
  • Prim Hemline
Rarity, they all adore you! Aren't you going to tell them about your fabulous pieces?
  • Rarity
I have to go.
  • Prim Hemline
Come back at once!
  • Prim Hemline
This is unheard of!
  • Luggage Cart
How do you do, ma'am? Contest going well?
  • Rarity
No time to talk. I have to find my friends!
  • Luggage Cart
Oh, uh, they're gone already. I saw them headed out this morning.
  • Rarity
Oh, no! Back to Ponyville, I imagine. Oh, they worked so hard on my behalf! And I repaid them with unkindness. What have I done?! Oh... here you are.
  • Luggage Cart
But miss, I– I didn't do anything!
  • Rarity
I need a moment with Prim Hemline. I have to rush back to Ponyville, but I just wanted to thank her first for—
  • Suri Polomare
Uh-uh-uh, you'd best steer clear of Prim for a while. She's pretty furious. Isn't that right?
  • Coco Pommel
Um... yes.
  • Rarity
There you all are! I can't believe it, I thought you went back home!
  • Twilight Sparkle
We missed the show because we overslept. Suri told us you lost. I'm really sorry.
  • Rarity
I lost? You know what? I don't even care. I'm just happy you're all still here after how I treated you. Taking advantage of your friendship the way I did. How could you ever see past it?
  • Applejack
Yeah, you were pretty rotten.
  • Rainbow Dash
Wow, Applejack. I know your thing is honesty, but come on!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Last night we may not have seen you at your best, but we know you. And we would never let one thing like that change how we feel about you.
  • Rarity
Oh, thank you! You really are the most wonderful friends a pony could have! You know, I already arranged to make it up to you this afternoon! Hope you're all available for an exclusive performance of Hinny of the Hills!
  • Suri Polomare
And that is how it's done. Pretty clever how I convinced her to stay away from Prim, wasn't it? Wouldn't have wanted her to find out the truth now, would we?
  • Hinny of the Hills
And I'm a dancing pony!
  • Applejack
Wow! That was even better than I imagined!
  • Rainbow Dash
I loved it! Uh, I mean, it was a'ight.
  • Twilight Sparkle
How did you ever get them to agree to do an extra performance just for us?
  • Rarity
Remember my costume designer friend who got me the tickets? Well, I offered to make all the costumes for his next show!
  • Fluttershy
Um, here in Manehattan?
  • Rarity
Well, um... yes... it will keep me away from Ponyville for a while.
  • Rarity
But I so wanted you to see this show! And working for this designer is such a great opportunity!
  • Applejack
We know. We're happy for you, Rarity. We're just sad for us.
  • Coco Pommel
Mind if I join you?
  • Rarity
Sure. Come on down. This is the first place trophy for Fashion Week. With my name on it! But I thought I lost!
  • Coco Pommel
You didn't. You won. Suri was hoping that if you didn't claim your prize, the judges would consider it a forfeit and first place would go to her. So she lied to make you and your friends go away, and, well, I lied too. I've worked for Suri for so long, I started to believe that it really is everypony for herself in this town. Until I saw how generous you were with your friends and how generous they were with you. It made me start believing there was something better for me out there. So, I– I quit. I brought you something to say thank you.
  • Rarity
Hm. I suppose you'll need a job now that you're no longer with Suri. How would you like to work for my friend making all the costumes for his next show?
  • Rarity
Manehattan was simply grand. It was in this magnificent metropolis that I learned that, while there are ponies who will take advantage of your generosity, you should never, ever let that cause you to abandon your generous spirit. Nothing feels worse than taking advantage of the giving nature of your friends.
