Transcript

  • Rainbow Dash
This just got real!
  • Rainbow Dash
Listen up, gang! We're almost there, so I've got a few things to say. First off, who here besides me thinks this is the best Equestria Games delegation in Ponyville history?
  • Bulk Biceps
Yeah!
  • Rainbow Dash
And no matter what your sport is, we gotta give it our best, because we've all got a genuine shot at Ponyville gold!
  • Rainbow Dash
...With the possible exception of Bulk Biceps, Fluttershy, and me. I mean, we're good and all, but we're up against the Wonderbolts in the aerial relay, so gold's kind of a stretch. Let's not kid ourselves.
  • Scootaloo
Don't feel bad, Rainbow Dash! We have absolutely no shot at getting gold either!
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh, that's because you're carrying the flag for Ponyville in the opening ceremony. There are no winners.
  • Scootaloo
Winners or not, we still have the chance to be awesome!
  • Rainbow Dash
That's the spirit! You hear that, everypony? Winners or not, we all still have the chance to be awesome!
  • Rainbow Dash
But, uh, let's still try to win lots and lots of stuff too, 'kay?
  • Spike
It's all in there, gang! Leave it to Spike, champion gear-carrier for all your gear-carrying needs.
  • Apple Bloom
And the Ponyville flag? You sure? And what about the flagpole?
  • Spike
In with the portable ramp! Whoa!
  • Scootaloo
Give it a rest, Apple Bloom.
  • Spike
Aw, she's just nervous, that's all. Perfectly understandable. Whenever I'm afraid I'll forget something or start to panic, I have a simple trick. I count to ten, and by the time I'm done, I've calmed myself enough to get the job done right every time. Easy-peasy, cider-squeezy!
  • Spike
Hey! Put me down!
  • Scootaloo
What's going on?!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike! Are you all right?
  • Crystal Guard
A thousand pardons, O Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious.
  • Spike
Huh? Who the what now?
  • Princess Cadance
Thanks for bringing Spike to us. It's okay, Spike. We'll have our hoofponies go back for your bags.
  • Spike
Uh, can they hang back a second and tell me what's going on first?
  • Spike
Mm! So the ponies here think I'm some kind of hero, huh? More of the green ones, please? I like the green ones.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Last time you were here, you got the Crystal Heart to Princess Cadance in time to save this entire empire from destruction!
  • Princess Cadance
You are known throughout my empire as "Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious".
  • Twilight Sparkle
Isn't that awesome? You're a big shot here, Spike! See that? That's you!
  • Spike
Hello, gawgeous!
  • Princess Cadance
This is why we all hope you do us the honor of lighting the torch at the opening ceremony. You'd be the very first dragon in the history of the Equestria Games to do so.
  • Spike
Of course I'll do it! And -- bonus -- I can do it with my fire breath!
  • Shining Armor
Places for the procession, everypony! Two minutes!
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
And you're quite certain you also understand exactly what you're supposed to do?
  • Spike
I stand where you tell me until you give me the signal, and then I walk over and light the torch.
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Mm. Couldn't be simpler.
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Mr. the Dragon, are you coming? Honestly. Would somepony help him walk?
  • Shining Armor
Now, please welcome the delegation from Ponyville!
  • Apple Bloom
  • Sweetie Belle
Ponyville forever! Yay!
  • Rainbow Dash
Awesome!
  • Fluttershy
Yay.
  • Bulk Biceps
Yeah!
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
This is the signal! I'm giving you the signal now! Mr. the Dragon!
  • Spike
Come on, Spike! Calm yourself! Count to ten. One... two... three... thousand... fourteen thousand... Twenty thousand...! Thirty thousand...!
  • Princess Cadance
What's wrong?
  • Spike
Tell me this isn't happening...
  • Twilight Sparkle
Equestria, we have a problem.
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Mr. the Dragon! Would you light the torch already?!
  • Spike
I don't know what it is, but I just don't have the stuff today! Did you bring a match?
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
You're a fire-breathing dragon.
  • Spike
Then some cough drops, maybe?
  • Spike
Nevermind. I'll keep trying.
  • Princess Cadance
Somepony go down and help him!
  • Spike
Light! Light!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Phew!
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Oh! How did you do that?
  • Spike
I'm... not sure.
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Oh, well. Better late than never.
  • Shining Armor
Let the games begin!
  • Rarity
Oh! There are our little superstars! You were fabulous!
  • Applejack
Made me sit up proud like a cornstalk in August!
  • Rainbow Dash
Ya done good, squirt!
  • Twilight Sparkle
You three really were wonderful. But does anypony know what was going on with Spike?
  • Applejack
He sure seemed to be having a tough time of it out there.
  • Rarity
He put things right in time, though.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Actually, it was me. I didn't want him to be embarrassed, so I cast a secret spell to light it for him.
  • Rarity
Oh, dear. Have you told him?
  • Twilight Sparkle
No, but he might have figured it out on his own.
  • Applejack
You gotta tell him, just in case.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I know. I'm just afraid of how he'll take it. I know what pride he takes in a job well done.
  • Rainbow Dash
Psst, here he comes now! Act casual! 'Sup?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike! Is everything okay?
  • Spike
I guess. I don't know. The weirdest thing happened down there.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Yeah, about that. I–
  • Spike
I mean, there I was, trying to light the torch, with all of Equestria watching, and feeling like the hugest failure ever, and then the thing just lit! It was amazing!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Oh, phew! I was afraid you'd be upset.
  • Spike
Upset? Are you kidding? Why would I be upset to discover I can light fire... with my mind?
  • Twilight Sparkle
  • Applejack
  • Rainbow Dash
  • Rarity
What?!
  • Bright Smile
Look, look, it's the Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious!
  • Elbow Grease
Can we get your autograph?
  • Spike
Sure!
  • Bright Smile
How you saved our Empire last time you were here was really amazing!
  • Spike
Aw. You know what else is amazing? Watch this! Don't worry. Once it bursts into flames through brainpower, I'll sign another one for ya. Promise.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike, may I have a word with you a moment?
  • Spike
Hey, you'd better be careful with that! It might burst into flames later! Delayed reaction. Hey, Twi, what is it? Hold on, hold on, give me a second... If I can set fire to stuff with my mind, mind-reading must be just around the corner! And I predict that you are about to ask me... to set fire to something with my mind!
  • Twilight Sparkle
No, because you can't!
  • Spike
Oh, really? So how do you explain what happened down there in front of thousands and thousands of–
  • Twilight Sparkle
I did it, Spike. I cast a spell to do it for you.
  • Spike
In front of... thousands and... thousands...?
  • Twilight Sparkle
I'm sorry, Spike. I just couldn't stand to see you stuck like that! You understand, don't you?
  • Spike
I... I... I need to be alone right now.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike?
  • Neighls Bohr
O Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious, can I get your autograph?
  • Spike
Sorry. You should probably ask somebody special instead.
  • Shining Armor
Our next event... ...the aerial relay!
  • Applejack
That's Dash and Fluttershy!
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh, no! We can't be late for that!
  • Security guard
Miss? Step right over here. Unicorns will no longer be admitted without a disabling spell, to prevent cheating. And make sure you don't even try casting a spell, or we'll know it.
  • Rarity
Hmph!
  • Pinkie Pie
If Ponyville medals here, we'll have eight medals so far, putting us tied for the lead with Cloudsdale! Unless Cloudsdale medals here too...!
  • Spike
Ms. Harshwhinny? I know you're really busy, but...
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
What is it?
  • Spike
Maybe there's something else I can do for the Games. Y'know, something really worthy of the Crystal Empire's admiration?
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
What are you talking about? You lit the torch for the whole thing!
  • Spike
Uh, well, actually, that wasn't really–
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
That wasn't worthy enough for you? Ugh, for pony's sake! Next thing you know, you'll be asking to put on a rock concert. Celebrities...
  • Spike
Wait, that's it!
  • Applejack
We got silver!
  • Shining Armor
Congratulations to all our medalists. And now, the anthem of–
  • Spike
And I shall do the honor of singing!
  • Shining Armor
Spike, what are you doing?!
  • Spike
You know how they always just play the music? Well, I know all the words to our anthem, and will sing them for you now, loud and proud, to the enjoyment of all!
  • Shining Armor
And now... um... the Cloudsdale anthem, as sung by... Spike!
  • Spike
Wait! The Cloudsdale anthem?
  • Shining Armor
They only play the anthem for the winner, Spike! The Wonderbolts are from Cloudsdale!
  • Spike
But... But I don't know the words to the Cloudsdale anthem! I've never even heard it!
  • Crystal Pony in Crowd
Sing for us, O Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious!
  • Spike
Oh, we're the Wonderbolts and we're super fast
  • Spike
And we're from Cloudsdale which-is-a-part-of-Equestria
  • Spike
That we like best and we're proud and we're fast and we like it because it really has nice trees
  • Spike
Yeah, we love the town because it's so cool and, and we like to fly really fast and everything like that
  • Spike
I kinda wish this was over 'cause it is... n't... yet... over... now.
  • Spike
Oh, we're the Wonderbolts and we're super fast and we're cloud– from Cloudsdale
  • Spike
We like it there 'cause it's really nice and the trees are cool and I hope it is over now
  • Spike
And... it keeps going on, la la la
  • Spike
And we really love the town
  • Spike
So I wish that this... song... was over now.
  • Spike
Over... now.
  • Spike
Over... now.
  • Pinkie Pie
Nailed it!
  • Apple Bloom
Spike, you comin'?
  • Spike
Nah, I got this stuff to pack up.
  • Scootaloo
But you've been moping in here for almost the entire Games.
  • Sweetie Belle
And tonight's the closing ceremony!
  • Spike
Which means we leave tomorrow. Ergo, the packing.
  • Shining Armor
And so the Games conclude as they always do, with the ice archery finals! Ice archers, take your places!
  • Applejack
Too bad Ponyville doesn't have any ice archers competin'. We don't have anyone to root for.
  • Pinkie Pie
That's okay. Ponyville has thirty seven medals, and Cloudsdale thirty six, so looks like we'll be medal champs of the Games anyway! Woo-hoo!
  • Rainbow Dash
But Cloudsdale has two ice archery finalists down there now! If they both place, Cloudsale wins the medal count!
  • Pinkie Pie
So you're saying that it all comes down to this one event?!
  • Applejack
Pretty much.
  • Pinkie Pie
Omigoshomigoshomigoshomigosh! Twilight! Come take this extra seat next to me and freak out over the medal count! I'll show you how: Omigoshomigoshomigoshomigosh!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Actually, I was looking for Spike. Have you seen him?
  • Apple Bloom
He wouldn't come.
  • Sweetie Belle
We tried to talk him into it...
  • Scootaloo
...but he wouldn't listen!
  • Pinkie Pie
You can have his extra seat, though. Uh... Twi?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Spike?
  • Twilight Sparkle
You here?
  • Spike
Uh, yeah! I'm super-busy! Look at all this packing left to do, heh. Crazy, right?
  • Twilight Sparkle
No more hiding out. You're coming with me. Now.
  • Spike
Okay, fine. I'll come. Can I at least wear these?
  • Rainbow Dash
Those aren't your average arrows. They freeze whatever part of the target they hit. Whoever encases their entire target in ice first wins. Keep your eye on number seven from Cloudsdale – he's the favorite.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Honestly, Spike, I don't see why you're being so hard on yourself.
  • Spike
I let everypony down. Twice. You never let anypony down, so you don't have any idea what that's like.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Are you kidding? I've totally let ponies down. That's not the point. The torch got lit, the aerial relay teams got their medals -- no harm, no foul.
  • Spike
Can we at least watch from inside there? I'm not sure I'm ready to face crowds in the stands just yet.
  • Shining Armor
No!
  • Rainbow Dash
Steer it towards the field, away from the crowds!
  • Shining Armor
Somepony cut the disabling spell!
  • Security Guard 2
There isn't time!
  • Spike
Dash, Fluttershy! Move!
  • Rainbow Dash
That was awesome!
  • Princess Cadance
I just wanted to thank you personally for saving those ponies and the Games, O Great and Honorable Spike the Brave and Glorious. You must be very proud.
  • Spike
I guess.
  • All present characters bar Spike
You guess?!
  • Spike
I just saw what needed to be done and reacted. Just so happens I can breathe fire and... if any of you could do that, you'd have done the same.
  • Applejack
Forgive me for bein' blunt, Spike, but you're not makin' a lick of sense.
  • Spike
Well, it's just how I feel.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Wait a second. I think I get it. You keep saying you let everypony down, but we all keep saying you didn't. You know who's disappointed in you, Spike? You. And only you can make it right with you again. What would that take, Spike?
  • Spike
Meh, I don't know. Can you turn back time? 'Cause I'd sure like a do-over on that opening ceremony.
  • Princess Cadance
We can't turn back time, but, would you do me the great honor of lighting fireworks in my place at the closing ceremonies tonight?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Come on, Spike. You saved the Crystal Empire twice! I think you can light some fireworks.
  • Spike
Mm, I guess I have to at least give it a shot.
  • Pinkie Pie
We did it! Ponyville won the medal count, and only by one medal!
  • Rainbow Dash
Hmm, wonder which medal that was? Bam!
  • Applejack
How does it feel to have opened the best Equestria Games in Ponyville history, squirt?
  • Apple Bloom
Probably as good as it feels to close them!
  • Ms. Harshwhinny
Okay, it's time!
  • Spike
You know, it's kinda weird. No matter how many times others tell you you're great, all the praise in the world means nothing if you don't feel it inside. Sometimes to feel good about yourself, you gotta let go of the past. That way, when the time comes to let your greatness fly, you'll be able to light up the whole sky.
