Transcript

  • Twilight Sparkle
Ehh... I'm bored.
  • Spike
But you're reading.
  • Twilight Sparkle
I've read all these books already.
  • Spike
And...?
  • Twilight Sparkle
And I'm bored! I wanna do something! Things have been so slow around here and I just—
  • Rarity
Twilight! Twilight! Ooh, Twilight, darling! Oh, thank goodness! It seems that my—
  • Applejack
Whew! Got here as fast I—
  • Twilight Sparkle
Yes! Finally! We've been summoned! I wonder where the map wants us to—
  • Spike
Uh, Twilight?
  • Applejack
Where do you think—
  • Rarity
Manehattan! We've been called to Manehattan! Oh, I've simply been dying to go back for a visit! And now I return... with a purpose!
  • Twilight Sparkle
Hmmm. It looks like you've been summoned to this particular neighborhood here.
  • Rarity
We're off to solve a friendship problem in one of the busiest and most vibrant cities in all of Equestria! Isn't this exciting?!
  • Applejack
Seems a hair odd, though, don't it? Map callin' me to a big city like Manehattan?
  • Twilight Sparkle
You may be more of a country pony at heart, Applejack, but the map picked you two because you're the best ponies to tackle this particular mission.
  • Applejack
But how will we even know what our mission's supposed to be? That neighborhood probably has twice as many ponies as all of Ponyville.
  • Rarity
Pff. Kch. Ts! More like three times! Why, it's not only home to the Haypacking District – it's also home to the Fashion District! Hmm. Shame you weren't called as well, though, darling. You did end up quite a fan of the hustle and bustle of Manehattan on our last visit.
  • Twilight Sparkle
It's such an exciting city, and there's still so much I'd like to do there. So many museums and historical landmarks to visit. Not to mention all the libraries! But this is your mission. Heh-heh. Don't worry about me. I've got plenty of... books... to keep me... busy.
  • Applejack
  • Rarity
Mm-hmm.
  • Rarity
I just remembered something! The Sisterhooves Social!
  • Applejack
We'll have to miss it. No tellin' how long we'll be in Manehattan. I sure hope Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle aren't too upset.
  • Rarity
Oh, Manehattan, what you do to me!
  • Rarity
Darling, are you all right?
  • Applejack
Ponies move so fast here. Not at all like back home. Eyes peeled, ears open. Eyes peeled, ears open.
  • Rarity
Remember, Applejack, you're in the big city now. No moseying. You've gotta walk with speed and confidence!
  • Rarity
Yoo-hoo!
  • Pedestrian Pony 1
Move it!
  • Applejack
Sorry 'bout that.
  • Strawberry Ice
Ah, get outta my way!
  • Applejack
Sorry.
  • Pedestrian Ponies 3 & 4
Watch it!
  • Applejack
Hey— Oh, dear. Butter my biscuits. I can barely cross the street in this town. How am I supposed to help solve a—
  • Rarity
There!
  • Pearmain Worcester
Yes, I think this is the one.
  • Rarity
No! No.
  • Pearmain Worcester
Excuse me?
  • Rarity
That hat clashes with your mane, not to mention it's far too large and will undoubtedly obstruct your vision. Oh, dear, none of these will do. Oh, Applejack! What good timing!
  • Rarity
Here. This will do splendidly.
  • Pearmain Worcester
Oh, it's lovely! How much would you like for it?
  • Rarity
Oh, no-no, please, please, keep it. I can always make another.
  • Pearmain Worcester
Thank you!
  • Rarity
And you thought we wouldn't discover our purpose here! Pff. Kch. Ts!
  • Applejack
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that wasn't it.
  • Rarity
What? We just saved that poor pony from committing a terrible crime of fashion.
  • Rarity
Well, she could've been meeting a friend who would've laughed at her new hat, and then their friendship could've been ruined forever! And... mmm... it's possible.
  • Applejack
Did your cutie mark glow signifyin' a job well done?
  • Rarity
Ye— No. I suppose it didn't. Still, a disaster was averted!
  • Stinky Bottom
Averted? You just lost me a paying customer!
  • Rarity
Oh, my! Oh, I-I-I-I-I'm s-so sorry. I never meant to—
  • Stinky Bottom
Beat it!
  • Rarity
Uh, please accept my sincerest apologies for the misunderstanding, and might I add, what a lovely establishment you have here! You're right, Applejack. The search continues.
  • Applejack
Uh, 'scuse me, I was just wonderin'... Uh, friendship problem, anypony? See, we've been sent here to... A-A map summoned us and, uh... If you could just take a moment to...
  • Rarity
Friendship advice! Anypony looking for friendship advice! Good grief. This isn't working.
  • Applejack
I'm not sure what we're supposed to do. To be honest, I'm still not even sure what the map called me here for.
  • Rarity
Oh, try not to worry, Applejack. The map picked us for a reason. Although how we're supposed to uncover that reason, I haven't a clue. We can't possibly approach every single pony in town until we find out what we're meant to d—ooh! "Please help us restore our long-lost but beloved tradition, the Midsummer Theater Revival. There's a guest performance by a local theater troupe, the Method Mares, as well as games, food, and much, much more. This event promises to bring our Bronclyn neighbors together and restore our sense of community, but there's so much to do and we need your help." Huh. Darling, this is it! The contact on the flyer is Coco Pommel!
  • Applejack
Oh, right! She's the one you got a job makin' costumes for that designer friend o' yours.
  • Rarity
Don't you see?! This must be why the map called us here! Oh, and you were so worried!
  • Applejack
Well, I suppose it's at least worth lookin' into... that is, if we can ever get off this street corner.
  • Coco Pommel
I can't believe you found my flyer. Quite a coincidence, don't you think?
  • Rarity
Applejack and I were specifically summoned here to be of service, and you, my dear friend, are in need of help. It's no coincidence, darling. It's fate!
  • Applejack
This Midsummer Theater Revival – what is it, exactly?
  • Coco Pommel
An outdoor play held at the community park. Many moons ago, local theater troupes would perform, and ponies in the neighborhood would help make the costumes and design set pieces, prepare food to share during the performance.
  • Applejack
Y'all do look like you're enjoyin' each others' company. Kinda reminds me of Ponyville.
  • Rarity
It sounds lovely, darling.
  • Coco Pommel
It was, up until several moons ago.
  • Applejack
What happened?
  • Coco Pommel
That's Charity Kindheart. She was a well-known costume designer on Bridleway. She started the Midsummer Theater Revival as a way to share her passion for theater with the neighborhood. No matter how busy she was, she always made time for the Revival.
  • Coco Pommel
But when she moved away to be closer to her grandfillies, the neighborhood lost the special tradition she had started, and worse, the sense of community it fostered.
  • Street Pony
Hey, I'm trotting here!
  • Applejack
Nopony else stepped up to take over for Charity?
  • Coco Pommel
I've been trying to. But I've just gotten a last-minute request to alter costumes for the cast of My Fair Filly, and I'm afraid I haven't made much progress. Oh... There's just so much to do to bring back the Midsummer Revival, and my flyers haven't attracted a single volunteer!
  • Rarity
Say no more! You finish up your work, and by this time tomorrow, you'll be up to your mane in ponies who want to lend a hoof. Applejack and I will make sure of it!
  • Coco Pommel
You will?
  • Applejack
You bet your boots we will!
  • Coco Pommel
Oh, I don't wear boots. I find they chafe my calves when I walk.
  • Applejack
It's just an expression.
  • Rarity
So you see, the Method Mares are only available on this one day, and we need all the help we can get with preparation.
  • Fine Print
Yeah, not a good time right now. Heh. What am I saying? It's never a good time!
  • Rarity
Well? What do you think?
  • Chock-full Carafe
I got my own problems. You think I've got hours to dedicate to somepony else's?
  • Uptown Clover
Ah, yes, Charity's Midsummer Theater Revival. Such wonderful memories.
  • Applejack
So you'll help us?
  • Uptown Clover
Oh, , don't be ridiculous. I run a very important oat and hay import/export business. Why, I can't spare even a moment for such things!
  • Coco Pommel
This is a nightmare.
  • Rarity
Oh, not at all, darling. It's quite lovely.
  • Applejack
I think she was talkin' about the Midsummer Theater Revival.
  • Coco Pommel
I finished the alterations for My Fair Filly, but I've barely started the costumes for the Revival, and the Method Mares are coming to the park tomorrow for a costume fitting and rehearsal!
  • Rarity
Well, I could help you with the costumes.
  • Coco Pommel
But what are we going to do about the rest? The park is in desperate need of repairs, and the sets still need to be built!
  • Applejack
Well I know a thing or two about buildin' and fixin' things. It's kinda, well, my thing. Could be the reason the map called me here!
  • Rarity
You see, dear? We went out looking for volunteers when all the help you need is right here.
  • Applejack
Uh-huh.
  • Rarity
The map wouldn't have chosen just Applejack and me if it was more than we could handle. Everything is going to be just fine!
  • Rarity
Perhaps I spoke too soon...
  • Coco Pommel
Oh, dear, you're right. Are you sure you can manage this by yourself?
  • Applejack
Well, there's a lot to do, but Rarity's right. The map wouldn't have called us here if we weren't up for the challenge. You two go on and take care of the costumes. I'll see you at the dress rehearsal.
  • Applejack
I know it looks bad, but I'm movin' as fast as I can.
  • Rarity
Don't worry, we've still got plenty of time. Everything's going to be—
  • On Stage
Um, excuse me? Is this where the Midsummer Theater Revival is supposed to be, perchance?
  • Raspberry Beret
We're here for the dress rehearsal?
  • Coco Pommel
Oh, yes! We've just put the finishing touches on the costumes.
  • Late Show
At least those look professional.
  • Raspberry Beret
We'll do a dry run of the play first, and then the fitting.
  • Applejack
No, wait! I haven't gotten a chance to—
  • Applejack
...reinforce the stage yet.
  • Coco Pommel
I just wanted to live up to Charity's example, to bring my neighborhood together again. But the park is still a mess, we haven't even thought about what refreshments to serve during the performance, and even if we had, we don't have a stage for the Method Mares to perform on! It's hopeless... Just hopeless!
  • Rarity
I don't understand. The map summoned us here to solve a friendship problem. We've clearly found it, but why did it send the two of us? Why not Twilight? I'm sure she could have used her magic to transform this park in an instant!
  • Applejack
I've been thinkin' the same thing. I mean, I can at least see why you're here – Coco's your friend, and you have an eye for costumes and all – but me? I was never gonna be able to finish a project this big.
  • Rarity
We'll return to Ponyville as failures! Why must this be, Applejack? Why? Why?! Wh—
  • Applejack
Now hold on there. I'm not suggestin' we pack up and go home.
  • Rarity
Then what are you suggesting— Then what are you suggesting?
  • Applejack
I'm suggestin' we stop worryin' about what we can't do and start doing what we can. I think I've got a plan. It won't be anythin' big or fancy, but it'll be somethin'. And somethin's gotta be better than nothin', right?
  • Coco Pommel
I suppose so...
  • Applejack
That's the spirit! Sorta...
  • Applejack
Alright, y'all, it's ready!
  • On Stage
Should we go ahead and start?
  • Raspberry Beret
Excuse me. I'm Charity Kindheart. I'm here about the open design position. I brought some samples of my work. I'm sorry I'm late. I had the hardest time finding my way here. I just moved here, and I keep getting mixed up by the street names! I had a map, but I dropped it in a puddle, which only made the street names harder to read!
  • On Stage
I see.
  • Cloudy Daze
What is that?
  • Bubblegum Blossom
I dunno, sugar, looks like some kinda play.
  • Cloudy Daze
Well, can we stay and watch it please? Please, can we, can we?
  • Bubblegum Blossom
Oh, alright, I suppose we could stay for a minute.
  • Late Show
Excuse me, but your next appointment is here.
  • On Stage
Alright. Send him in. I'm sorry, but based on these samples, I just don't think this is the place for you.
  • On Stage
Don't get me wrong. These clothes are all exquisite and well-made, but more theatrical than avant-garde. Have you considered costume design? I have a contact on Bridleway! If you're interested, I can put you in touch with him. ...And scene.
  • Stardom
Charity, dear, is that you?
  • Raspberry Beret
Hello, Mrs. Pearblossom! I didn't see—oops!
  • Stardom
Oh, let me help you, dear. Are these the costumes you've been working on?
  • Raspberry Beret
Yes, I was supposed to be finished by now, but there's just so much to do, and I still have a few last-minute alterations to make before opening night! I'm sorry I couldn't get enough tickets for everypony in the neighborhood. I hope Mr. Pearblossom wasn't too disappointed. I know Trotter on the Roof is one of his favorites.
  • Stardom
Oh, my dear filly, don't worry about that. We're so proud of you. We shall be with you in spirit!
  • Raspberry Beret
Thank you! You've all made me feel so welcome here and have become like family to me! I just wish I could share this experience with you and the others!
  • Rivet
Eh, what's goin' on?
  • Luckette
It's the Midsummer Theater Revival. The Method Mares are performing!
  • Rivet
The Revival. Mhm, yeah. My pop used to bring me.
  • Stardom
So nice of you to put on this play for the neighborhood.
  • Raspberry Beret
I couldn't have done it without everypony's help! I know it's not Bridleway, but—
  • Stardom
Oh, pish-tosh! It's perfect, dear!
  • Pearly Stitch
Oh, you're such a dear, thank you! This is so nice. Haven't seen the neighborhood this friendly since Charity moved away!
  • On Stage
Thank you, fillies and gentlecolts. Please give a warm welcome to the one who made this entire event possible – our neighbor Coco Pommel!
  • Coco Pommel
Thank you all so much for coming. The Midsummer Theater Revival was always something that meant so much to me, and it seems it means quite a lot to all of you as well. I really can't take all the credit, though. My dear friends Rarity and Applejack helped me ever so much.
  • Rarity
Oh, darling, please, it was just a few costumes.
  • Applejack
Aw, shucks, I just happen to be good with a hammer is all. To be honest, we had much bigger plans to start. When those fell through, we decided to simplify. This here was the result.
  • Rarity
Oh, don't be so modest. Coco and I were lost.
  • Coco Pommel
You bet your boots we were!
  • Viola
We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the Midsummer Theater Revival and how much it inspired us!
  • Applejack
Oh, yeah?
  • Uptown Clover
I used to think that to help my community I had to do something big. Heh-heh. And let's face it – in this day and age, who has the time for such a commitment? But here, you did something as simple as building a stage and putting on a play and, heh, look at how it's brought everypony together.
  • Viola
I saw Coco's flyers for volunteers but didn't think anything I'd have time to do would be that useful. Now I wish I'd offered to help, even if it was just pulling a few weeds or planting a few flowers.
  • Applejack
Not sure if you noticed, but the park is far from bein' fixed up. I imagine if you look around, you'll find there's lots of little ways for you to get involved in changin' this place for the better.
  • Viola
And I will!
  • Uptown Clover
And I don't think we'll be alone!
  • Applejack
Yee-hoo!
  • Applejack
We did it!
  • Rarity
I understand now! It all makes perfect sense!
  • Applejack
Huh?
  • Rarity
I know why the map called you here.
  • Applejack
You do?
  • Rarity
If Twilight had used her magic to fix the park, it wouldn't have fixed the real problem, which is that these Manehattan ponies didn't think they had time to do something for their community! But by building that stage and making sure the play went on, you showed them that just by doing something small, you can make a big difference!
  • Applejack
Well, I'll be!
  • Rarity
Seems you have more in common with the Manehattan ponies than you thought!
  • Applejack
Heh-heh. But all the same, I'd sure like to head back to Ponyville on the next train. I want to check in with Apple Bloom and find out how the Sisterhooves Social turned out.
  • Rarity
Oh, absolutely, my dear. Just as soon as I stop that pony in the shop over there from purchasing that dreadfully hideous scarf! Stop! You're making a terrible mistake!
