Lolly-Pop

Twilight Sparkle: This carnival has everything! Rides, games, and not to mention—
[loudspeaker feedback]
Flim: You can even clown all around Ponyville town!
Flam: Step right up, fillies and gentlecolts, and see the spectacle for yourselves!
[crowd cheers]
Flim: I'm Flim, he's Flam, and these are our trademark Flim and Flam Clown-o-Rama kits!
Flam: These state-of-the-art makeup kits will turn everyday ponies into one-of-a-kind clowns! Why, even you could be!
[crowd cheers]
Crowd Pony 1: I want one!
Crowd Pony 2: Ooh! Ooh! Me, me! I need one!
[cash register dings]
Fluttershy: I need one of those kits!
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, my, Fluttershy! I've never seen you this...
Fluttershy: Excited? Exuberant? Exhilarated?! I'm all of them! As a young filly, I'd dream of becoming a clown! Lolly-Pop the Clown! And now's my chance!
[zip!]
[rumbling]
Fluttershy: One Clown-o-Rama kit, please!
[zip!]
Fluttershy: [giggles]
Pinkie Pie: [giggles] That ride was incredible!
Applejack: [laughs] I know! Let's go ride it a—!
Twilight Sparkle: Check out Fluttershy! She's living her fillyhood dream of being a clown!
Ponies: Yay!
Applejack: [shudders]
Fluttershy: Not just any clown. I'm Lolly-Pop the Clown!
[honk!]
Fluttershy: And I'm performing tonight in the Carnival Clown Jamboree. Everypony who brought a makeup kit gets to show off their sillies. I can't wait to show you my moves!
Applejack: I... uh, gotta gallop and go! I think I saw some weeds that need pickin'!
[zip!]
[vroom!]
Fluttershy: Oh, dear. Is she okay?
Pinkie Pie: You just focus on practicing for the jamboree. We'll get to the bottom of this.
Applejack: [grunts]
Pinkie Pie: Applejack? Oh. I guess you weren't kidding.
Twilight Sparkle: Uh, picking weeds?
Applejack: It's what I do on the farm when I need to clear my mind.
Twilight Sparkle: You missed one.
Applejack: [yelps]
Pinkie Pie: Just a moment ago, you were having the time of your life. Now you're jumping like a frog. What's up?
Applejack: [grunts]
[ribbit]
Applejack: Well, it's embarrassin', but... ever since I was knee-high to a pig's eye, I've been plumb terrified of clowns.
Twilight Sparkle: That explains it.
Applejack: All I know is when I see a clown, I want to gallop away.
Pinkie Pie: Good news. Fear not. Rejoice! You have something now that you didn't back when this fear developed.
[zip!]
Pinkie Pie: Us!
Twilight Sparkle: I know exactly how to help. You've gotta become what you fear!
Applejack: That sounds... insane.
Pinkie Pie: Juggle these. And don't pretend you can't. It's been established that you know how.
[zip!]
Applejack: Hey! I think it's workin'! [whimpers] Now I'm afraid of myself!
[zip!]
Flam: It's Flim Flam Clown Jamboree time!
Flim: Now put your hooves together for... Giggle Glue!
[zip!]
Pinkie Pie: Wow! You look great! You ready?
Fluttershy: I think so. Where's Applejack?
Twilight Sparkle: She didn't want to ruin your big night, but the truth is Applejack's afraid of clowns. So... she's not coming. I'm sorry.
Fluttershy: What?! Nope. Nopey-nope-nope! This was just a silly filly's dream. But no dream is worth a friend's nightmare. Nope. I'm not performing.
[squeak!]
Applejack: [whimpering] Did I miss it? Is it over?
Twilight Sparkle: Not exactly. When Fluttershy found out how you were feeling, she decided not to be a clown anymore.
Applejack: But I never wanted my fear to get in the way of Fluttershy's dream. Aw, drat. What now?
Twilight Sparkle: Sometimes things don't work out perfectly. There isn't always a clean solution, which – believe me – really noodles my noggin.
Pinkie Pie: Ha! "Noodles" is such a funny word! [giggles] Try saying it, Applejack. It'll cheer you up.
Applejack: Yeah, Pinkie, that really doesn't help. [gasps] Wait. Cheer me up. That's it!
[vroom!]
Fluttershy: [sighs] Huh? [screams]
Applejack: You need to go on stage and do your clown thing!
Fluttershy: So you're not afraid anymore?
[screech!]
Applejack: Nope, I still am. But I know that you're just tryin' to cheer ponies up. And I think that's pretty great. So I can try to conquer my fear and turn it into fun. [chuckles nervously] For a friend like you.
Flim: Well, folks, I think that's the end of our jamboree.
Fluttershy: Not so fast! [grunts] Lolly-Pop's here to bring on the cheer!
[crowd cheers]
Flam: Good luck, kid. But rhyming's our thing. Watch yourself.
Applejack, Twilight Sparkle, and Pinkie Pie: [cheering]
[crowd gasps]
Twilight Sparkle and Pinkie Pie: [gasp]
[zip!]
[crowd gasps]
Applejack: I'm here to help... Lolly-Pop!
[crowd cheers]

Little Miss Fortune

Pinkie Pie: I can't believe it's the last day of the Crystal Empire Carnival! Can we do it all over again?
Twilight Sparkle: According to the map, we rode all the major rides, so that just leaves the Big Top.
Rainbow Dash: I'm game for whatever as long as it means more fun before we're done.
Fluttershy: Ooh! What does that do?
Applejack: Wow! It's an old lucky cat machine. I heard if you pull its paw, a fortune'll pop out.
[click!]
[meow!]
[ding!]
Pinkie Pie: [reading] "You'll find sweet success on the savory path you've chosen. Your lucky item is a spork." Ooh, that was fun! Now to find a spork.
[click!]
[meow!]
[ding!]
Fluttershy: [reading] "Your lucky number is... your lucky number." Wow! How lucky!
Rainbow Dash: Those were all so cool!
[click!]
[meow!]
[ding!]
Rainbow Dash: [reading] "Life is like a traveling circus. Stay in motion, or the fun will end." But I don't want the fun to end!
Twilight Sparkle: Don't take it personally. It's not like the machine actually knows us.
[click!]
[meow!]
[ding!]
Twilight Sparkle: [reading] "Your element is magic, and you'll always stay by your friends." Whaaaaat?!
Pinkie Pie: [laughs, squeals] A spork!
Rainbow Dash: They're already coming true! [whines] Everypony's fortune was lucky. But mine is just a bad sign.
Pinkie Pie: Maybe you should just keep moving. Like this!
Rainbow Dash: You're right, Pinkie. If I do what it says, then it won't come true. Obviously I should join the circus!
Rest of Mane Six: [gasp]
Rainbow Dash: If I travel all around Equestria, then the fun will never end!
Twilight Sparkle: I don't think that's what Pinkie meant.
Rainbow Dash: I can't just stand around. I gotta keep moving! Or the fun will end!
[zip!]
Rest of Mane Six: [sigh]
Rainbow Dash: Shining Armor! Just the ringmaster I needed to see! I want to join the circus.
Shining Armor: Well, we're always on the lookout for exciting new acts. But we're about to leave Ponyville.
Rainbow Dash: And that's exactly what I need to do!
Shining Armor: Well, then I don't mind giving you a shot in the Big Top.
Rainbow Dash: I'm in! Now the fun will never end! Take that, fortune!
Fluttershy: [giggles]
Shining Armor: Tonight, we introduce a new high-flying member – Danger Dash!
[crowd cheers]
Shining Armor: For Danger Dash's first trick, she'll attempt to cross the tightrope...
[crowd gasps]
Shining Armor: ...wing-tied and blindfolded...
[crowd gasps]
Shining Armor: ...while answering math questions!
[record scratch]
Rainbow Dash: Wait, what?! One plus four is more than the square root of [???] of an apple pie-aye-ayeeeee!
[boing!]
Rainbow Dash: Whoa!
[crash!]
Twilight Sparkle: You always had it.
Rainbow Dash: I'm just not cut out to juggle so many things at once. But that doesn't mean I'm a one-trick pony. There's surely something—
Shining Armor: Our next event for the evening is the Cage of Constant Worry!
[thunder]
[crowd cheers]
Applejack: I'm worried just lookin' at it.
Twilight Sparkle: Don't be. It's Rainbow Dash, after all.
[zoom!]
Twilight Sparkle: They wouldn't let her do something too dangerous.
Shining Armor: You're about to see something very dangerous that few stunt ponies have ever attempted! Without using a motorcycle!
[clang!]
[crowd cheers]
Twilight Sparkle: Okay. Now I'm worried, too.
Rainbow Dash: [grunts]
[whooshing]
Rainbow Dash: I... can't... STOP!
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, no!
[magic sounds]
Rainbow Dash: [screams]
[crash!]
Rainbow Dash: [groans]
Rarity: Darling, are you all right?!
Rainbow Dash: I am. But something's just not right. I've gotta see if Shining Armor has any acts left to try. I know I was meant for the circus. Give me another shot.
Shining Armor: Well, we do have one last part we couldn't fill on such short notice. But it requires a costume change.
Rainbow Dash: Count me in!
Shining Armor: Thank you, everypony, for joining us for our final act!
[crowd gasps]
Shining Armor: [whispers] Be ferocious!
Rainbow Dash: Roar?
Audience Pony: Huh?
Rainbow Dash: Uh... roar?
[crowd booing]
[tomatoes splatting]
Applejack: We came to say goodbye, but why is your frown already upside-down?
Rainbow Dash: Because I was so busy worrying about my fortune, I totally forgot how when we're together, it's always a super-awesome rollercoaster of good times! Things never stop moving here!
Fluttershy: Does that mean you're not leaving Ponyville?
Rainbow Dash: You betcha!
Rest of Mane Six: [cheer]
Pinkie Pie: Step right up! The show is just about to start!
Cutie Mark Crusaders: [cheer]
Rainbow Dash: Welcome to Rainbow's Daring Danger Dash Show!
Cutie Mark Crusaders: [cheer]
Rainbow Dash: Now, everypony put your helmets on!
