Ooh, this apple looks good...
...but not good enough to eat.

Heh, this apple can go in the trash.
Does Twilight have an apple on her horn?

Spike, you've been on my back all morning.

...that was eaten by a hungry little dragon.
"Spike! I wanted the juicy one..."

"...to be held in the magnificent capital city of Canterlot..."
"--cordially extends an invitation to Twilight Sparkle plus one guest."
Thus, the Gala excitement commences!
I've got a Golden Ticket!

"My family needs it more than you do!"
"I challenge you to a hoof-wrestle. Winner gets the ticket."
"Drummin' up business for the farm?"
"A chance to audition for the Wonderbolts?"
"Money t' fix granny's hip."
"Those are all pretty good reasons, aren't they?"
"Can't make a decision on an empty stomach."
She's going to give it to me!
At this point, Ellie Goulding's song Starry Eyed should come on.
"Oh the Grand Galloping Gala, is the best place for me!"

"Girls, there's no use in arguing."
"Eh! This is my decision..."
"...and I'm gonna make it on my own, and I certainly can't think straight with all this noise..."
"...not to mention hunger."
Spike, why are you leaving too?
Meeting up with Spike and Twilight at the cafe.
Centerpiece or appetizer?
Remember, she's a pony, not a pony-shaped human.

"This is all about you, and how fabulous you'll look at The Grand Galloping Gala!"
Twilight is getting squished, while Rarity continues to dream about the Gala.
I got plenty of delicious food.
The dessert, not my auntie.
What do you say there, best friend?
"I hope you don't mind..."
"...but we're all doing a little spring cleaning for you."
"Better late than never, right?"

I didn't forget you Spike, here's your ticket for good time's sake.
Aww...looks like Spike likes girly, fru-fru stuff after all.
...Don't worry, your secret's safe with me..
...You're not fooling her, Spike.
Sweet laugh, Applejack. Oh yeah, and you forgot to lock the door.
