Transcript

  • Rainbow Dash
Look at that, Tank! Cloudsdale's here! That means Ponyville is next up for winter!
  • Rainbow Dash
You're doing awesome, everypony! Keep it up! We need those leaves off those trees! Once we get autumn cleared away, it'll be hello, winter!
  • Rainbow Dash
Was that a yawn I just saw?
  • Rainbow Dash
How can you be tired when the most exciting time of the year is right around the corner? And don't forget the best part – our first winter together! Come on, wake up! Once those ponies bring in the big, fat clouds full of snowflakes, we'll have a ton of snow for our extreme sledding! And over there, we can play horse hockey, with no shoulder or arm pads!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Everything's looking great, don't you think?
  • Rainbow Dash
Almost everything. Does Tank look alright to you?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well, he does seem to be moving a little slowly.
  • Rainbow Dash
I know, right?
  • Twilight Sparkle
And he looks kind of sleepy...
  • Rainbow Dash
Totally!
  • Twilight Sparkle
...just like he always does.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah, ha ha, I'm sure you're right.
  • Rainbow Dash
Well?!
  • Fluttershy
I suppose his heartbeat could be a teensy-weensy-eensy bit slower than usual...
  • Rainbow Dash
Okay, so give him a vitamin or something!
  • Fluttershy
I don't think he needs that.
  • Rainbow Dash
Maybe we're just staying up too late. Uh, too many Daring Do stories.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, that's not it either.
  • Rainbow Dash
Well, what's wrong with him then?!
  • Fluttershy
Nothing! He's perfectly fine.
  • Fluttershy
He's just going to hibernate.
  • Rainbow Dash
You do realize he's not a bear, right?
  • Fluttershy
When the weather grows cold and less food is available, many animals hibernate to conserve energy. It's like taking a really long nap during winter, and then they wake up in spring. And see? Even tortoises do it! When the time comes, Tank will leave and dig into the ground.
  • Fluttershy
But don't worry. He'll reappear when the spring sun warms the ground back up.
  • Rainbow Dash
Come on! Tortoises don't hibernate! Somepony put that picture in there as a joke.
  • Fluttershy
It's not a joke.
  • Rainbow Dash
Well, then your book must be wrong!
  • Fluttershy
Rainbow Dash, Tank needs to hibernate. It's healthy for him, just like sleeping is healthy for us.
  • Rainbow Dash
Whatever. Okay, thanks. Come on, Tank.
  • Fluttershy
Where are you going?
  • Rainbow Dash
To get a second opinion from a real reptile expert.
  • Spike
I told you, Rainbow Dash, I'm a dragon!
  • Rainbow Dash
Come on! You're practically twins!
  • Spike
I'm purple.
  • Rainbow Dash
But if you don't have to hibernate, why should Tank?!
  • Spike
Because he's a tortoise and I'm a dragon!
  • Rainbow Dash
Same family though, right?
  • Spike
No!
  • Rainbow Dash
I'll take that as a yes.
  • Spike
Ugh! Look, if Fluttershy says tortoises hibernate, then I guarantee tortoises hiber—
  • Rainbow Dash
Well, what would you know?! You're a dragon!
  • Rainbow Dash
Nopony knows you like I do, Tank. All you need is some hard work to get the old blood pumping.
  • Rainbow Dash
Come on!
  • Rainbow Dash
These things are heavy! Chock full of snowflakes! We're gonna have such a killer time in the snow, Tank. Tank? Tank!
  • Pinkie Pie
Aww, look at the cute wittle Tankie, all snuggly-wuggly, getting ready to hibern—
  • Rainbow Dash
Don't say that word!
  • Pinkie Pie
Which one? "Snuggly"? "Wuggly"? "Tankie"? "Hibernate"?
  • Rainbow Dash
That one!
  • Pinkie Pie
I was just saying how cute he—
  • Rainbow Dash
If you think hiber... – you know, that napping thing – is so cute, why don't you go do it?! Somewhere far away from here?!
  • Rainbow Dash
What are you looking at?! Pinkie Pie and I are just having a conversation!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Look, Rainbow Dash, we all know how upset you are about Tank hiber—
  • Pinkie Pie
Shhhh! Don't say that word! That's what started this all!
  • Twilight Sparkle
We all know how upset you are about Tank. But you shouldn't take your anger out on your friends.
  • Rainbow Dash
Who said anything about anger?! I didn't say anything about anger! I'm not upset! And I am not angry! Do I look angry?! Come on, Tank! Let's get out of here!
  • Rainbow Dash
I need you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, not sleepy-eyed and scaly-tailed! Which... is exactly what you are. But get up anyway!
  • Rainbow Dash
You can't hiber– you know. What about all the primo things we're gonna do together this winter? Building snow ponies, starting snowball fights, sipping hot cider by the fire.
  • Rainbow Dash
Don't you wanna do those things with me?! Think, Rainbow Dash, think! Tank's only hibernating because it's cold, right? Well, I'd rather have him awake in the heat than asleep in the cold... I just have to stop winter!
  • Sunshower
So where do these clouds go?
  • Open Skies
Over by Clear Skies.
  • Sunshower
But there's clear skies everywhere.
  • Clear Skies
Yo, Clear Skies right here!
  • Sunshower
But there's clear skies over there, too!
  • Clear Skies
That's Open Skies!
  • Sunshower
There's open skies everywhere!
  • Open Skies
I'm not everywhere. I'm right here!
  • Sunshower
Wait. So you're Open Skies, and you're Clear Skies. Then what's all that?
  • Open Skies
  • Clear Skies
Open, clear skies!
  • Open Skies
Hey, where'd our fluffy clouds go?
  • Clear Skies
Fluffy Clouds? He's over there!
  • Rainbow Dash
Hah! Stopping winter is gonna be a breeze!
  • Sunshower
Here comes the next shipment! Move those clouds over!
  • Rainbow Dash
Ugh! For every hoof step back, they go three hoof steps forward! What are we gonna do? Cloudsdale. That's it, Tank! If I can't stop winter in Ponyville, maybe I can stop it at the source!
  • Rainbow Dash
Lunch hour! Perfect!
  • Rainbow Dash
The winter lab. We're in, Tank! Now we just gotta figure out a way to shut it down. Sabotage snowflakes? I think we gotta go bigger than that. Wait here. Hmm. We could get rid of these clouds, but... that's still not big enough.
  • Rainbow Dash
Slam dunk! With no water, they can't make clouds or snow! They can't make winter!
  • Rainbow Dash
I hate to do this to those weather ponies, but desperate times call for desperate measures!
  • Rainbow Dash
Oopsies! Looks like these were a little loose!
  • Rainbow Dash
And there goes winter down the drain!
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh, I can't see!
  • Rainbow Dash
Aaaaaah!
  • Rainbow Dash
Let's get out of here!
  • Applejack
What in the name of Celestia's goin' on up there?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Prepare yourselves, everypony! Winter is coming!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Everypony, look out!
  • Rainbow Dash
You okay, Tank?
  • Twilight Sparkle
Rainbow Dash! Are you alright?
  • Rainbow Dash
No...
  • Pinkie Pie
Knock, knock!
  • Fluttershy
How are you feeling, Rainbow Dash?
  • Rainbow Dash
Whatever...
  • Rarity
The poor thing looks so sad! Just what are we doing to do?
  • Twilight Sparkle
I don't know what we can do.
  • Applejack
Buck up, Sugarcube. You just ain't yourself these days.
  • Rainbow Dash
Whatever...
  • Rarity
Uh, how can I say this tactfully...? You've lost your sparkle, Rainbow Dash.
  • Pinkie Pie
I hate to say this, but, well... you've become...! A party pooper!
  • Rainbow Dash
Didn't you hear me? I said 'whatever'. I don't know if you're here to cheer me up or what, but I'm fine.
  • Fluttershy
Let me handle this. Rainbow Dash, your winter is going to be pet-less.
  • Rarity
Whatever did you do that for?!
  • Fluttershy
Because she'll never get past this until she lets it all out.
  • Applejack
Uh... it's okay. Tank'll come back in a few months.
  • Rainbow Dash
Months?! I don't want him to go!
  • Applejack
Alright, alright. There, there. Nice going, Fluttershy. How do we get her to stop?
  • Fluttershy
She's got to be about done by now. Can't be too much left in there.
  • Fluttershy
Feeling better?
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh-huh.
  • Fluttershy
Oh, you poor, poor thing...
  • Rarity
I can't bear to see Fluttershy cry!
  • Pinkie Pie
It's just heart-wrenching!
  • Twilight Sparkle
You too?!
  • Applejack
Nope, I'm good.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Look, everypony, I know how hard it is to say goodbye—
  • Pinkie Pie
I'm mostly sad because you're not sad!
  • Twilight Sparkle
What?! Me?! What about Applejack?
  • Pinkie Pie
Applejack cries on the inside, Twilight!
  • Applejack
It's true.
  • Rainbow Dash
It's alright, Fluttershy. It's alright.
  • Applejack
You think she's done or just getting a third wind?
  • Twilight Sparkle
I don't know... Rainbow Dash? Are you okay?
  • Rainbow Dash
I think so. I feel better. Really, I do. Thanks, everypony. I don't know what I'd do without you. Or him... Oh, Tank... I'm sure gonna miss you.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well, guess we're starting winter with a bang.
  • Applejack
The fun's come early! Yee-haw!
  • Pinkie Pie
You think we could mess up winter every year? It's way less work!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Uh, I don't think Rainbow Dash could handle it.
  • Rainbow Dash
Riding that entire season from Cloudsdale to Ponyville was pretty awesome.
  • Rainbow Dash
I thought you guys might like to say goodbye to Tank. He's ready to hibernate.
  • Pinkie Pie
Ooh, you're using the word! Oh, she's using the word! And when Tank finishes hibernating, I'm gonna throw him the biggest welcome home party ever! Or wait. Should it be a 'welcome above ground' party? Or a 'happy wake-up' party? Maybe an 'it's about time!' party!
  • Rarity
And I'll design him a very special suit just for the occasion, whichever one it ends up being.
  • Applejack
I'm glad you're feelin' a little better, Rainbow Dash.
  • Rainbow Dash
Yeah, me too.
  • Rainbow Dash
So, you really wanna do this hibernating thing, huh?
  • Rarity
Goodbye, Tank.
  • Fluttershy
Happy winter.
  • Applejack
See you later, little feller.
  • Pinkie Pie
Have a good sleep, Tank!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Goodbye, Tank! We'll miss you!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Well? Ready for some winter fun?
  • Rainbow Dash
Uh, I'm gonna hang here and read to him a bit. That little guy can never get to sleep without a bedtime story. I'll be right there.
