Friendship Gems

Rainbow Dash: [groans]
Fluttershy: Do you know what today is?
Applejack: Nope. [to fourth wall] But I think she's gonna tell—
Fluttershy: Today's the day they're emailing the winning troop for the Finn Tastic meet and gree-ee-ee-ee-ee-eet! [deep gasp]
Fluttershy: [growls] Nothing yet!
Twilight Sparkle: Uh, Fluttershy? We all have something to tell you—
Rarity: I have received it!
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Rarity: Yes, I have received the email!
Applejack: You did?
Rainbow Dash: How?
Twilight Sparkle: That's impossi— Oh.
Rainbow Dash: [yelps]
Rarity: Yes! It's right here! And it says, "Congratula-fins!" [laughs nervously] We're the winners!
Fluttershy: Hooray! [laughs] Whoo-hoo! Oh! When do we leave?
Rarity: Uh... wha...
Fluttershy: What are our travel plans?
Rarity: Well, I... [stutters]
Fluttershy: What should we wear?
Rarity: Ah! Yes! What should we wear? That I can answer!
[techno music]
Rarity: Crafting!
Fluttershy: Perfect! Just as we've woven a Trail Trotters troop from six colorful threads – the threads are us – now we can weave friendship bracelets just as beautiful, strong, and metaphorical. I'm so happy we won together as a troop. I couldn't have asked for a greater group of friends.
Applejack and Rainbow Dash: Uh...
Twilight Sparkle: [laughs nervously] Us, too. Yes. We are also happy for that same reason.
Rarity: Yes, yes, yes. We can show Finn Tastic the magic of our friendship or... whatever.
Trixie: Did someone say magic?
Mane Six: [gasp]
Trixie: No one knows more about magic than the Great and Powerful—
Pinkie Pie: Trixie! Did you just magically appear?
Trixie: I've been here for five minutes.
Pinkie Pie: Want to join us?
Rest of Mane Six: Uh...
Trixie: Say no more! I'm gonna make the most amazing friendship bracelet for my bestest friend in all of Equestria... Trixie!
Trixie: Glass beads because of my crystal clear wit. Emerald clovers for being lucky and brave. And mirror beads because my reflection's always there for me. Hmm. Still needs a finishing touch. Ooh! Perfect! Like me!
Rainbow Dash: Incoming!
Mane Six: [yelping]
Pinkie Pie: Aah! Ugh! Awww...
Rainbow Dash: Uh, Trixie, you might be confident in the magic part, but you might need to spend some time brushing up on the friendship part.
Pinkie Pie: First of all, it's not a competition.
Fluttershy: Friendship is free like a butterfly. That you can put in a jar. Forever.
Applejack: Gettin' close to another pony is one part. But learnin' about them is the other.
Twilight Sparkle: Just like with magic. Friendship takes a little bit of time and practice.
Rarity: It's like... a precious stone that you must cherish and polish and wear to the poshest of parties.
Trixie: That's great and all for you ponies, but every time Trixie tries to do friendship, Trixie fails.
Rainbow Dash: Just leave it to us, and we'll make you into a lean, mean, friendship-making machine!
Fluttershy: All you need is... a lot of pointers.
Applejack: And a training montage.
[rock music]
Pinkie Pie: Huh?
[rope whipping]
Trixie: [panting] Oh!
Gummy: [chomp]
Trixie: [panting] Yeah!
Mane Six: [cheer]
Trixie: It's finished!
Applejack: Well now. I reckon that's a good friendship bracelet.
Trixie: Trixie the Great and Powerful has become Trixie the Powerfully Grateful. Thanks for showing me the true meaning of friendship. I couldn't have done it without all of you. I know now that it's not just about being the best. It's about having the best friend...ship bracelet. And this is it! Now, prepare to be amazed by its magnificence! Ta-daaaah!
Mane Six: [straining]
Twilight Sparkle: Well, technically it did bring us all together.
Trixie: Why, thank you.
Fluttershy: [strained] This'll be such a funny story to tell Finn Tastic when we meet him.


[heist music]
Twilight Sparkle: The target is in sight.
Rarity: Commence heist mode!
Applejack: This one's for you, Fluttershy.
[door creaks]
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: Finn Tastic!
Finn Tastic: Who are you? Why don't you trot on into my humble home away from the ocean and tell me why I'm the subject of your fanciful break-in? And I'm keeping this. Do you want me to autograph a piece of coral for you?
Twilight Sparkle: He's just as awesome as Fluttershy said!
Applejack: Uh... M-Mr. Finn Tastic, sir. We broke into your trailer because we've been pretendin' to be a Trail Trotters troop. It, uh, got out of hand when our friend – your number-one fan – was workin' like crazy on badges and sellin' cookies to win this meet-and-gree-ee-ee-ee-ee-eet with you, and it was too late to come clean to her. I know everypony says they're your number-one fan, but Fluttershy – she really is. And we'd do anythin' to help her meet ya.
Finn Tastic: I get it. I'd go to crazy lengths to meet me, too. So, where is this super fan?
[loud stomping]
Fluttershy: Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Can I meet Finn yet?
Finn Tastic: You're right. She is my biggest fan.
Fluttershy: [squeals]
Finn Tastic: Fluttershy, it's a pleasure.
Fluttershy: [swoons] Mr. Tastic, I'll be frank. I had a whole speech planned, but... Okay! I'll just start at the beginning! Ever since I was a young filly... Enough about me! Tell me about you, Finn!
Finn Tastic: Please, call me Finn Tastic.
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: [gasps]
Fluttershy: They say don't meet your heroes. But whoever said that never met Finn Tastic! You can do no wrong!
Finn Tastic: Which is why, in the spirit of the transparency I live by, I must tell you that you didn't actually win the meet-and-gree-ee-ee-ee-ee-eet with me. Your friends fabricated this Trail Trotters troop. It's all a lie!
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: [gasps]
Fluttershy: Aah! [crying]
Applejack: Now, why would you tell her that?!
Finn Tastic: I've learned in my life that you have to live truthfully in order to pretend to be a variety of characters on the big screen. Including my Golden Pond-winning turn as Roger the—
Twilight Sparkle: Singing Dolphin! [chuckles] We know.
Finn Tastic: Trust me. Even if it's hard, it's better to be honest.
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: [sighs]
Twilight Sparkle: We owe her the truth.
Applejack: Yeah.
Rarity: Let's hunt her down! Or, you know... find her and tell her the truth.
Fluttershy: How could they lie about the very core of my existence? The Trail Trotters were my everything. Now they are nothing. With nopony to trust, no badges to earn, and no celeb to idolize, I'm doomed to wander this earth alone and angry for the rest of my days. I'll need plenty of space— Oh. Space. Funny. —to cool down and move on with no friends and no "porpoise".
Fluttershy: [narrating] Three months later...
Fluttershy: Ugh! I'm so mad! My friends made up every part of Trail Trotters! The badges, the cookies, the hiking, the laughing, the memories! But it was real. I got everything I wanted from Trail Trotters. My friends made it happen. I'm missing my time with Finn! And my friends!
Producer Pony: Cut! We got it! That's the one! [laughs]
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: [indistinct chatter]
Applejack: [sighs] Fluttershy. It's all my fault. What have I done?
[door creaks]
Applejack: [gasps]
Rest of Mane Six: [gasps]
Applejack: Fluttershy! You're back!
Fluttershy: I know it's been months...
Finn Tastic: It's been literal minutes.
Fluttershy: ...but I needed that time to realize. Your intentions with creating Trail Frauders – that's what I'm calling the fraudulent Trail Trotters – your intentions were good, but your actions were so, so bad. But when we got rejected from the troop, you banded together to give me everything I wanted. The cookies, the badges, meeting Finn. And I've been missing out on it because I was mad. But staying angry was only hurting myself.
Rest of Mane Six: [agreeing]
Finn Tastic: You really do have great friends, Fluttershy. Not many ponies would go to these... mmm, dramatic lengths just to make their friend happy.
Mane Six: Awww... [giggle, gasp]
Princess Celestia: May I present the winners of the Trail Trotters meet-and-gree-ee-ee-ee-ee-eet!
Cutie Mark Crusaders: [dolphin sounds]
Princess Celestia: And as a reward for great friendship, in spite of less than stellar honesty, I appoint you six as Trail Trotter Leaders for Troop Four-Eighty-Two!
Princess Celestia: That's this troop.
Mane Six: [cheer]
