Transcript

  • Twilight Sparkle
Wow, Applejack! Are you sure you've never managed a concert before?
  • Applejack
Well, it turns out doin' up a concert's the same as settin' up a rodeo.
  • Twilight Sparkle
And thanks to Pinkie's connections organizing the Ponypalooza Rock Concert, we've got quite a lineup for the Helping Hooves Music Festival.
  • Pinkie Pie
Twilight! Applejack! Rainbow Dash! Rarity! Fluttershy! Spike! Pinkie Pie! Oh wait, that's me. Everypony!
  • Twilight Sparkle
What is it, Pinkie?
  • Pinkie Pie
I have the most amazing news ever! It is totally gonna freak your frizz!
  • Rainbow Dash
Well, spill it, Pinkie!
  • Pinkie Pie
It wasn't easy. In fact, it was terribly difficult. But I have managed to book the biggest pony pop star in all of Equestria as the main attraction of the Helping Hooves Music Festival!
  • Applejack
Sapphire Shores?
  • Pinkie Pie
Sapphire Shores?! Please! Sapphire Shores is merely the second biggest pony pop star in Equestria. I have booked the one, the only, Countess Coloratura!
  • Twilight Sparkle
  • Rainbow Dash
  • Rarity
  • Fluttershy
Ahhh...
  • Applejack
Who in the hay is Countess Coloratura?
  • Pinkie Pie
My frizz has been freaked!
  • Applejack
Pinkie Pie, who is this Countess Coloratura pony?
  • Pinkie Pie
Uh, I just told you that she's the biggest pony pop star in Equestria! How-how-how-how-how have you not heard of her?!
  • Applejack
Don't know. Though I did know a gal named Coloratura when I was just a filly. Wouldn't it just be the funniest thing if that Coloratura and this Coloratura were the same Coloratura? Heh.
  • Pinkie Pie
Do you mean to tell me that you actually know Countess Coloratura?
  • Applejack
Well, I don't think it's the same pony, since my friend wasn't any sort of high-falutin' countess.
  • Pinkie Pie
Do you remember her cutie mark?
  • Applejack
Sure do. It had this super colorful bunch of musical notes that just shimmered in the light.
  • Pinkie Pie
You mean... like this?!
  • Applejack
Well, fancy that! That there's the very same cutie mark!
  • Pinkie Pie
Do you have any idea the number of hoops I had to jump through to get her to perform at the festival?! A whole lot of hoops! That pony is very demanding!
  • Applejack
Nah.
  • Pinkie Pie
Yah!
  • Rarity
I completely understand. We artistes require certain necessities in order to do our best work.
  • Applejack
This was clearly some sort of misunderstandin', 'cause Rara was just as down home as me!
  • Twilight Sparkle
  • Spike
  • Rainbow Dash
  • Rarity
  • Fluttershy
  • Pinkie Pie
  • Royal Riff
  • Sprinkle Medley
Rara?!
  • Applejack
Even that big name was too fancy for her, so I shortened Coloratura to "Rara"!
  • Applejack
We had the best time at Camp Friendship!
  • Applejack
Rara was just so easygoin'! We were like two apples from the same branch.
  • Applejack
Rara and I prepared this song for the camp talent show. When we performed, she belted it out, singin' in the most colorful, clear voice I'd ever heard!
  • Applejack
After camp, we wrote to each other for a bit, but...
  • Applejack
...then we lost touch. But Rara always did want to go to Manehattan to try and make it big. But a demandin' diva? Just you wait, Pinkie. Once Rara gets here, you'll see she's just a plain old pony like you and me.
  • Pinkie Pie
I don't have to wait – she's here!
  • Applejack
Really?
  • Applejack
Rara?
  • Pinkie Pie
Countess Coloratura!
  • Svengallop
Clear the way! Stand back! Keep your hooves and tail to yourselves!
  • Applejack
No... that can't be her. Um... hi. Remember me? We met at Camp Friendship? I gave you the nickname "Rara"?
  • Countess Coloratura
AJ?
  • Applejack
Yeah! Heh. Howdy, Rara!
  • Countess Coloratura
Hoofsies!
  • Rarity
Ooh, you got hoofsies from Countess Coloratura! Look! Ooh, she clearly thinks you're very special!
  • Countess Coloratura
Hoofsies! Hoofsies! Hoofsies!
  • Applejack
Yeah... real special.
  • Svengallop
Now that's how you make an entrance! Big, bold, absolutely stunning! Though it was muddied a bit with your interaction with that dusty farmpony. Do you actually know her?
  • Countess Coloratura
Oh, yeah, that's my childhood fillyfriend AJ! She was the one that started calling me Rara.
  • Svengallop
Oh, yes, how cute and... common. Of course, I was the one that started calling you Countess, and just look at how you've moved up in Equestria since then! Why, you've gotten everything you've ever wanted! Speaking of which, where is the pony Pinkie Pie?
  • Pinkie Pie
Ooh! I'm the pony Pinkie Pie, Mr. Manager, sir!
  • Svengallop
Do you have the water imported from Rainbow Falls that I requested for Countess Coloratura?
  • Pinkie Pie
I have twenty glass containers full right here!
  • Svengallop
Did I not tell you to provide straws in all of Countess Coloratura's beverages?
  • Pinkie Pie
Uh, I don't think so. But lucky for you, I have the biggest straw collection in Equestria! I call this straw Fernando.
  • Svengallop
Hm. Let us confirm that you acquired the rest of the items that Countess Coloratura requested before she performs her run-through, shall we?
  • Pinkie Pie
Ooh, we shall!
  • Svengallop
Floral arrangements from the royal Canterlot gardens... Chocolate éclairs made by Gustave le Grand... A selection of crystals from the Crystal Empire... Freshly picked cherries from Cherry Jubilee's farm separated red from yellow...
  • Pinkie Pie
Abso-toot-ly!
  • Svengallop
Well, by some miracle, your requests have been reasonably met. So let us move on... to rehearsal!
  • Pinkie Pie
See, Applejack? Demanding!
  • Applejack
Pinkie's right, Rarity! The Rara I knew didn't hide behind a veil givin' out fake stamp kisses, sippin' up imported water, and needin' her cherries separated.
  • Rarity
Oh, I do understand. Sometimes it's hard to see our friends change.
  • Applejack
She's become a whole other pony!
  • Rarity
Trust me. Once you see Countess Coloratura perform, you simply won't believe it!
  • Applejack
Rarity was right! I don't believe it!
  • Svengallop
Oh, my shining star! Thanks to the sparkling costumes, dazzling choreography, and brilliant vocal effects that I designed, your performance was spectacular, Countess Coloratura!
  • Countess Coloratura
Oh, , thank you, Svengallop!
  • Applejack
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but that feller isn't actually complimentin' Rara. He's complimentin' all the bells and whistles he's piled on to make her Countess Coloratura.
  • Rarity
Oh, no-no-no-no-no, you don't understand, Applejack. Creating all those elements is a lot of work, and Countess Coloratura's performance wouldn't exist without them.
  • Applejack
If you ask me, that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.
  • Countess Coloratura
Oh, if we're all done here, I'd love to go back to my trailer and rest, Svengallop.
  • Pinkie Pie
Actually, right now you're scheduled for your meet and greet with the schoolponies!
  • Svengallop
Ugh. I can totally get you out of meeting with the schoolponies, Countess.
  • Countess Coloratura
Absolutely not. My favorite part of any event is meeting with the schoolponies!
  • Applejack
The schoolponies'll be so happy to hear that, Rara!
  • Countess Coloratura
Ponyville schoolponies! As part of the Helping Hooves Music Festival, I'm holding a contest where some of you will get a chance to sing with me onstage at the concert tomorrow! Sound fun?
  • Countess Coloratura
Alright! Now who wants more hoofsies?
  • Applejack
Now that's more like the Rara I remember.
  • Pinkie Pie
But... I got everything you requested!
  • Svengallop
That was for Countess Coloratura! This is for me! And what I want is premium oats!
  • Pinkie Pie
Oh! Well, we have lots of tasty oats right here in Ponyville!
  • Svengallop
I would not feed those to a chicken! I want top-of-the-line Appleloosan oats! Next, it appears that we are surrounded by apple trees. Bring me five hundred pre-peeled, pre-cored apples, and I want those things in twenty-four hours!
  • Pinkie Pie
But that's impossible!
  • Svengallop
Do you want me to pull Countess Coloratura from your little podunk charity show?! Because I will!
  • Pinkie Pie
Applejack! Svengallop just made all of these new demands and he said—
  • Applejack
I heard, Pinkie. But don't you fret. I'll talk to Rara and fix things right up.
  • Apple Bloom
Did'ja see, sis?! Did'ja see?!
  • Countess Coloratura
Is this the little sister you wrote to me about, AJ?
  • Apple Bloom
Hold on, Applejack. You wrote to Countess Coloratura about me?!
  • Countess Coloratura
AJ said you were the best little sister ever, Apple Bloom!
  • Applejack
Alright now, you'd best get along, little ponies.
  • Applejack
Uh... Hey, Rara, you mind if I talk to you about your manager?
  • Countess Coloratura
Sure, what about him?
  • Applejack
Well, while you were meetin' with the schoolponies, he was demandin' all sorts of stuff from Pinkie Pie.
  • Countess Coloratura
Svengallop works very hard as my manager, AJ, so if he needs some things when we're on the road, I don't see anything wrong with that.
  • Applejack
Well, do you see somethin' wrong with him tellin' Pinkie that if she doesn't get those things by tomorrow, he'd pull you from our charity festival?
  • Countess Coloratura
What? But he knows how important charity is to me, and leaving the festival would completely ruin my image!
  • Applejack
I'm afraid Svengallop doesn't give a pickled pippin about your charity work.
  • Countess Coloratura
That's not true! Svengallop has always supported me in all my interests. You're just saying those things because you're jealous!
  • Applejack
Jealous of what? A pony who hides behind a veil so thick she can't see when somepony's usin' her? No, I'm not jealous of that, Rara!
  • Countess Coloratura
I am not Rara! I am Countess Coloratura! And while we may have been friends when we were young, we have clearly gone in different directions!
  • Applejack
It just ain't right! He's manipulatin' her, and she's just not seein' it!
  • Pinkie Pie
Enough stewin', more peelin'!
  • Applejack
Sorry, Pinkie, but there is no way I'm lettin' that lousy Svengallop use my friend like that!
  • Applejack
Countess Coloratura!
  • Countess Coloratura
Wow, AJ, you said my real name.
  • Applejack
I said your new name, but I saw the real you hangin' out with those schoolponies yesterday. And I know somepony that'd prefer if you stop doin' those little events.
  • Countess Coloratura
Ugh, not this again.
  • Applejack
Come on now. You've just got to give me a chance to prove what I'm sayin' is true.
  • Countess Coloratura
And just how are you going to do that?
  • Applejack
Do exactly what I say. We'll see if that Svengallop truly has your best interests at heart.
  • Countess Coloratura
Svengallop? Svengallop! Where are you, Svengallop?
  • Svengallop
Here I am! Did you need something?
  • Countess Coloratura
Yes, I was... considering... m-maybe cancelling the contest with the schoolponies...?
  • Svengallop
Countess, this is wonderful! I've been waiting forever for you to cancel that pointless schoolpony contest.
  • Countess Coloratura
You... have?
  • Svengallop
You do it at every charity event, and it does absolutely nothing to promote the Countess Coloratura image that I built! Consider it cancelled. Pinkie Pie!
  • Pinkie Pie
Yes, Svengallop, sir!
  • Svengallop
We are making some adjustments to the show. Follow me!
  • Svengallop
Cancel the contest for the fillies and schedule me a spa treatment. Now that I don't have to oversee a rehearsal with those brats, I have time for the works! You know the drill! Deliver, or the diva ditches your dippy charity!
  • Svengallop
Okay, Countess Coloratura, all taken care of!
  • Svengallop
You know the drill! Deliver, or the diva ditches your dippy charity!
  • Countess Coloratura
So that's how you've been managing things?
  • Svengallop
Yeah, so? What's the problem?
  • Countess Coloratura
The problem is, is you've been using my name to intimidate ponies to get what you want!
  • Svengallop
But I work incredibly hard for you! I deserve everything I get!
  • Countess Coloratura
But not because you scare ponies into thinking I won't perform for their charities otherwise! I would never do that to my fans! Which is why you should have known that I would never cancel the schoolponies' contest!
  • Svengallop
Hmph. All this charity and schoolpony contest nonsense is just remnants of that boring little Rara I met back in Manehattan!
  • Countess Coloratura
You clearly don't understand the real me!
  • Svengallop
Ha, that's a joke! I made you somepony! What can you even do without me? Good luck, Countess Coloratura! Good luck.
  • Applejack
Oh, Rara, I'm so sorry. Are you gonna be okay for the concert tonight?
  • Countess Coloratura
Of course. After all, the show must go on!
  • Coloratura
Oh, my gosh, Rarity, Svengallop's right! This is gonna be a disaster! I'm gonna be terrible!
  • Applejack
Can you give us a minute, Rarity?
  • Rarity
Certainly.
  • Applejack
Now, why's it gonna be so terrible?
  • Coloratura
Because Svengallop was in charge of everything! The lights, the visuals, the sound! Without Svengallop, I have nothing!
  • Applejack
Now, now, don't go gettin' yourself into a tizzy there, Rara. Svengallop turned you into Countess Coloratura and acted like your friend so he could enjoy the perks that came with bein' a star. But the real perk of friendship is gettin' to see your friend bein' true to their self. And Rara, when you're simply yourself, you're the brightest star I've ever seen shine.
  • Twilight Sparkle
Good evening, everypony! Welcome to opening night of the Helping Hooves Music Festival! Now it is my great honor to introduce you to our headlining act – Countess Coloratura!
  • Coloratura
This song may be familiar, but yet, it's totally different. Kind of like me, Rara.
  • Coloratura
Thank you, everypony! When I arrived at the Helping Hooves Music Festival, I had forgotten who I really was! But then an old friend reminded me what real friendship is about, and she told me that if I was true to myself, I couldn't go wrong! So I have a very special surprise for her. Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, Scootaloo, come on up!
