Dashie raising an Applejack banner.
The debut of Derpy
. It was like a dream come true for every fan of the show - well, except for some viewers.
"Don't want to do any more damage than you've already done."
"I just don't know what went wrong."
Guess she bounced a little too much.
"Nice work, Rainbow Dash!"
Rainbow Dash, trying to keep it from falling.
Rainbow Dash, you're NOT Superman...
"You okay, Rainbow Dash?"
"Is there anything I can do to help?"
She looks so cute from this angle!
No more help please, just sit there.
"In the name of Celestia!"
"Just sit there and do nothing!"
Derpy wasn't listening to Rainbow Dash...
...because she was focusing on jumping on the cloud. "Now what?" says Derpy.
Mayor giving a speech ...
Written Script and Golden Harvest with Dinky Doo?
Everypony, at the ceremony for Applejack.
Applejack's friends and family wishing her good luck.
Getting a farewell from Granny Smith.
Mayor is eager for money!
Don't forget to have fun while you're gone.
Oops, an animation error!
Is that Written Script and Golden Harvest again?
Pinkie... at least take off the wrappers first...
"Do your best, Applejack!"
Ah'm sure I'll do better than my best.
Golden Harvest and Dinky Doo again? On the train to Canterlot? Awfully suspicious...
"And drink sarsaparilla! ...What? It gives you extra sass." (as a side note... why is Bon Bon here during this?)
Rainbow chooses a more...reliable assistant.
Setting up a surprise party to welcome Applejack back from the rodeo.
Well that is the point...
Rainbow Dash being cute...as always.
"Oh, Pinkie, you startled me..."
"Don't worry, Twilight. Got my lips all limbered up."
One of Pinkie's lip-limbering faces.
She's getting in the zone.
Quite the face there, Pinkie.
You're weird. Has anyone ever told you that? You're weird.
Time to hide in the... chicken roost?
Hiding from Applejack to give her a surprise.
"Wow! How did you know it was my birthday?"
Son, we're all disappointed...
Poor mailpony, getting the door slammed on him...
Leave it to Pinkie to know cake makes all better.
Bad news for the Apple family.
Twilight, reading the letter.
Rarity and Apple Bumpkin shocked...
(from the right) Peachy Sweet, Apple Cobbler, and Apple Fritter's shocked too...
Please, don't leave your little sis!
"What do you mean Applejack is not coming back!?"
"And she loves her family! Doesn't she...?"
Of all the things that could happen, this is The! Worst! Possible! Thing!
Looks like Rainbow is believing Fluttershy for a change.
"Well! What are we waiting for!"
The Apples, are mighty grateful.
Twilight and the gang set off.
Even Big Mac can't stand to see his sister gone.
Now what can Rainbow Dash be lying about?
The ponies sit like dogs, while Pinkie really has to go.
Now what can Twilight be thinking, that will make her even want to lie?
Don't worry, Pinkie, we've all been there.
Next stop: Dodge Junction.
Even ponies do the potty dance.
I can't wait another second!
"I found her! I found her! I found her!"
"Oh Applejack! Thank heavens."
"We're so glad you're safe!"
"I found her! I found her! I—"
Wait! There ARE! What do you know, there—OH WAIT A SECOND...
"Do you have any snacks?"
Meeting Cherry Jubilee for the first time.
Why it's simply smashing darling!
Everypony has mixed reactions.
"What if at the end of the episode, people forget me and start talkin' about Derpy?!"
Applejack being confronted by Rainbow Dash.
Each of the Main Six, besides Applejack, have different thoughts on her leaving.
Rainbow Dash scolding Applejack.
Oh great she used the didn't need to find me card.
Insert Darth Vader "NO!" here
How in Equestria did he get away with that?
Ah, the extra help's arrived!
"We're the cherry sorters!"
Have fun on your first day!
Suspicious Applejack is suspicious.
"...working on a cherry orchard sound so...delightful."
"Why don't you quit talking..."
Taking a quick check on Applejack.
Twilight so much for helping.
Twilight's sexy approach to Applejack.
Rainbow Dash being cute, yeah that's right, super cute.
Not amused with Rainbow Dash.
Just like that "I Love Lucy" episode.
Pinkie, you be Lucy. Fluttershy can be Ethel.
"Was it because I made it rain!"
Priceless face, courtesy of Fluttershy.
Putting cherries on Fluttershy's hat might help--
--but she doesn't seem to like it (no surprise).
Rarity is noticing that Twilight wants to lie.
Solving a problem, Pinkie Pie style!
Applejack seems to receive a lot of insults from her own friends.
Applejack in Maximum Speed!!
The rest of the main ponies cleaning up the cherry factory.
"Desperate times do call for desperate measures."
I know what you're thinking Rarity.
Definitely the 'big guns'.
Applejack startled by Pinkie Pie.
"You promise not to talk about Ponyville ?"
Pinkie Pie helps out, too!
Seriously that's how Pinkie is getting cherries.
"Have you ever had a cherry changa?"
"I never had a cherry changa."
Pinkie Pie cornering Applejack with complete randomness.
Applejack is not freaking out at Pinkie's sudden long neck.
"One of my favorite funny words is 'kumquat'!"
"Pickle barrel! Pickle barrel!"
"Pickle barrel!" (Pinkie seems to say 'pickle' quite a bit in this episode)
Talk! I've got an annoyance gun and I'm not afraid to use it!
"I ain't sayin' nothin'!"
Annoyance gun fire! (endless jabbering)
Applejack seems to be freaking out.
"All right all right! Just stop!"
Emerging from the trees like ninjas.
Applejack making a cute face.
Applejack has no other choice. Hopefully ...
"Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye..."
"She'll do a bunk"? Sure, and a sentient human will replace Derpy with a normal-eyed changeling.
Pinkie has faith in Applejack.
Somehow Rainbow Dash expected this.
You're kidding. You're kidding, right?
One cupcake directly into her eye!
That's the look that says 'Somepony's gonna die now!'
Run for your lives she is gonna blow it!
"Nopony breaks a Pinkie PROMISE!"
Quick, chase after Pinkie while this show's still Y7 rated!
Why are you dancing Applejack?
"Getting the heck out of Dodge (Junction)."
Step on it, I'm being chased by my maniac friends.
The rest of the mane 6 give chase.
Fluttershy spots a cute little bunny.
Fluttershy hits the brakes!
Sometimes it is possible to be too kind.
Applejack with her cute confidence.
Applejack doubles her pay.
They seem to like the offer.
Aw c'mon we are going fast.
It's funny how 2 girls pulling 3 more girls can match 4 stallions pulling 1 girl.
Like a good old-fashioned car chase
Pinkie Pie the action pony!
"Applejack, you broke your Pinkie Promise! Apologize!"
Frankly Applejack doesn't care.
Applejack's pouty face makes a return.
So that's how reins work on hooves.
"I'll just get a real apology later."
Pinkie looks unusually happy there
"No time! They knew what they were getting into!"
Now Applejack is ultra confident.
Watch out for that train!
Run a speeding train? Aw yeah.
Come on, we can make it...
Have you spit yer bit, Applejack!?
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy see the incoming risk.
Wait, so that one pony was never attached to the cart?
The perfect getaway for Applejack.
"Lady, you're trouble!" And so they left without being paid, good for Aj.
Oops, forgot that the two Pegasus ponies pulling the cart can fly.
Twilight and Fluttershy surprised at Rainbow's quick departure. Never let her loose or you'll regret it.
Maybe she regrets catching Applejack?
"You won an amazing amount of ribbons!" Says the always adorable Twilight.
Applejack with only 4th, 3rd and 2nd ribbons.
That's a very... human-like face there.
Rainbow Dash hears the truth.
"But the telegram said..."
"You were going to send money."
At least Applejack isn't lying.
"Come home empty hooved."
The cuteness of Twilight's super wide eyes.
Fluttershy has that wonder face.
"And we're your friends!"
Now Applejack is trying to kill us with the cuteness.
We all happen to have our eyes closed at the same time.
"I don't think I can face her."
We all know Applejack can't lie.
A little hint of G3 happening.
"Now you got me acting all sappy!"
Applejack with the I love you guys face.
Applejack is coming home.
Applejack waving at everypony.
Winona says welcome home I missed you.
woah there lover boy (actually girl)
I think you forgot something, girls...
"...you're gonna get it, Rainbow Dash!"
"up down up down u.....p do......wn" STOP IT PINKIE
