Meet Potion Nova!

Mane Six: [sigh]
[slide whistle]
Fluttershy: Oof! Um...
Applejack: Welp... not much goin' on today.
Twilight Sparkle: What happened to us?! We used to go on adventures! Fight evil! Regale each other with lore!
Pinkie Pie: Hmm... Lately, it does seem like we get into less adventures and more... comedic situations.
Twilight Sparkle: If only something magic would happen...
[vacuum cleaner whirring]
Rarity: Well, darlings, if you insist, I will sing an aria that I just happened to have prepared.
Me, me, me, all about me!
Me, me, me—!
[door opens]
Rarity: [yelps]
[angelic music]
Applejack: Guh!
Fluttershy: [yells]
Rarity: Guh!
Pinkie Pie: Geh!
Twilight Sparkle: She's... She's amazing!
Potion Nova: [yelps, grunts] Can't a pony enter a room without whipping up a cloud of magic? Oh, heya, there! What's shakin'?
Twilight Sparkle: Me! With excitement!
Pinkie Pie: Hello! May I offer some special help to a clearly special customer? A cupcake, mayhaps?
Potion Nova: Yeah, I need some help. But not with the cupcake.
Pinkie Pie: Don't see how that's possible. But go on.
Twilight Sparkle: Who are you?
Potion Nova: [dramatically and echoing] I... am Potion Nova.
Potion Nova: Oh. [clears throat] I'm Potion Nova! The potionista behind all your silliest potions!
Twilight Sparkle: You're the potion maker?!
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy: [groan]
Potion Nova: Yeah, yeah, yeah. [giggles] Anyways, I need you—
Twilight Sparkle: Y... Y... You?!
[vacuum cleaner whirring]
Applejack: Welp. We lost Twilight.
Fluttershy: Oh! No more potions?!
Pinkie Pie: What happened?
Potion Nova: Every potion uses the same base. Sourced direct from the Potion Ocean. But the problem is... I've totally run out. So I've come to ask you.
Twilight Sparkle: Say, have you ever considered... oh, I don't know... taking on an apprentice?
Rest of Mane Six: Ooh.
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, no, I dropped my resume! I'm so embarrassed! And also qualified.
Potion Nova: Um... you good?
Twilight Sparkle: Oh. Yes. Sorry. It's just... I've been wanting to meet you forever!
Potion Nova: Me? Oh, [scoffs] Listen, I'm just a simple unicorn with a refrigerator company and a dream.
Twilight Sparkle: And really amazing magical potions!
Potion Nova: Not if you six don't help me make it to the Potion Ocean.
Twilight Sparkle: I knew it! I knew we were going on an adventure! Time to get the gang back together!
Pinkie Pie: 'Kay. We're back together.
Twilight Sparkle: Then let's go!
Mane Six: [giggling]
Twilight Sparkle: Look! A magical bridge! I bet we have to answer a riddle from a troll in order to cross! You! Troll! Give me your riddle!
Stranger Pony: I'm not a troll. I'm just trying to cross this bridge, too.
Twilight Sparkle: Or is that part of the riddle, huh? Huh? [laughs]
Potion Nova: It's okay. Come on. Excuse us. Have a good one.
Twilight Sparkle: I've seen this illusion before. Classic trick. The key is to be—
Potion Nova: Whoa-whoa-whoa, wait up a sec!
Twilight Sparkle: [nervous laugh]
Mane Six: [grunting, panting]
Twilight Sparkle: This must be some sort of sinister, mystical, shape-shifting world!
Potion Nova: Um... full disclosure. [nervous laugh] Not the best with directions.
Potion Nova: Hang on! My mane only twitches when something magic's gonna happen!
Twilight Sparkle: This is it!
Twilight Sparkle: Aw.
Potion Nova: You know, not all magic has to be big-explosive-showy. Magic's all around us. Which means it's kind of normal.
Potion Nova: See?
Rest of Mane Six: [laughing]
Fluttershy: Oh, my!
Applejack: The Potion Ocean!
Pinkie Pie: Pretty!
Twilight Sparkle: It's so magical!
Potion Nova: Nice to see it through fresh eyes. Guess I forgot how special it is.
Mane Six: [laughing]
Rarity: [slurps]
Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy: [laughing]
Twilight Sparkle: Can I ask you something? If the journey wasn't full of dangerous magic, why did you need us?
Potion Nova: Ha! You joking? I can't lift all this potion myself. Only got four hooves. [giggles]
Twilight Sparkle: You just needed some pack mules?
Potion Nova: Plus, company wasn't bad. And if somepony were... say... to be my apprentice...
Twilight Sparkle: [giggles] Yaaa-ha-hay! Whoo-hooooo!
Rest of Mane Six: [cheer]

Pony Surfin' Safari

Fluttershy: Hm.
Pinkie Pie: [chomps] Mmm.
Fluttershy: [giggles]
Twilight Sparkle: [yelps]
Potion Nova: Hope you're all enjoying the vacay and fun activities! [giggles] Just stay away from the Cute Triangle! Once you're lost, you're lost forever! Okay, have fun!
Applejack: Time for our first group activity – a bonfire! Uh... [sighs] Well, we can't get started with anypony missin'. Be back in a jiff.
[crab chittering]
Rainbow Dash: Your serve!
Applejack: Hey! We're tryin' to do a group thing back at the fire, and – thing is – you're a part of the group.
Rainbow Dash: [sighs] Bet you can't score while I'm gone!
[air hisses]
Applejack: All righty, where were we? [sighs] What part of "group activity" do we not seem to be gettin' here?!
Rarity: Darlings, tragedy! I can't find my couture sunglasses! Huh?
Applejack: Oh, I-I think I saw 'em by the bonfire.
Rarity: [gasps]
Applejack: [nervous laugh]
Fluttershy: [giggling]
Fluttershy: Huh?
Rarity: [distressed sounds]
Rainbow Dash: [slurping]
Applejack: [groans]
Twilight Sparkle: Um... [groans]
Pinkie Pie: Hmmm... Should I order a cupcake?
Applejack: This isn't Food Fest. It's Fire Fest! Now get your haunches outside with the rest of the crew!
Applejack: [gasps] How the...?! [groans] We're never gonna have a group activity at this rate!
Potion Nova: Oh, don't stress, Applejack.
Applejack: I just don't see the point of vacationin' together if we're not gonna be together.
Potion Nova: [gasps] My mane! It means something magic's about to happen!
[owl hoots]
[rooster crows]
Mane Six sans Applejack: [snoring]
[door opens]
[upbeat music]
[alarm clock rings]
Applejack: We're burnin' daylight here!
Fluttershy: [yawns] Sleep in...
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
Pinkie Pie: Huh?
Applejack: We didn't get group time at the bonfire, so I signed us all up for a surfin' safari!
Pinkie Pie: [yawns]
Applejack: Now let's go, go, go!
Rest of Mane Six: [groan]
Twilight Sparkle: Follow me to the caves!
Rarity: Are there any parasols available? My hat and SPF don't seem to be doing the trick.
Applejack: Uh—
Rainbow Dash: Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
Pinkie Pie: I'm gonna go back for snacks!
Applejack: Everypony, listen up!
Applejack: We're havin' a fun day out as a group. No talkin', no snacks, no caves, no distractions! Just fun! Everypony stay in between these three rocks! Nopony allowed outside the boundaries! WE! STICK! TOGETHER!
Applejack: [yelps]
Mane Six: [scream]
Rarity: Ah! Darlings! My sunglasses!
Twilight Sparkle: This must be the Cute Triangle, where everything lost is lost forever!
Fluttershy: Including us?
Applejack: At least we're... together?
Rest of Mane Six: [growl]
Pinkie Pie: [slurping]
Applejack: I got a feelin' I caused this. But I might be able to fix it.
Pinkie Pie: Oh!
Applejack: All right, ponies.
Rest of Mane Six: Huh?
Applejack: It's been a minute, but if we're gonna get out of here, we're gonna have to use some good old-fashioned friendship magic!
Rainbow Dash: You sure this is gonna work?
Applejack: It always has.
Mane Six: [gasp] Whoa! [scream]
Mane Six: Whoa!
Pinkie Pie: Whoo-hoo!
Rainbow Dash: We did it!
Rarity: I lost my sunglasses!
Applejack: Welp, gotta admit. Your mane was right. We got caught in the magic of the Cute Triangle.
Potion Nova: Oh, yeah? Well, I had something really magical happen. I guessed how many gumballs were in the gumball machine at the beach bodega.
Twilight Sparkle: And you won?
Potion Nova: Nope. I was totally off. [giggles] But I was the only one who entered, so they gave it to me anyway!
Applejack: That's...
Fluttershy: Wow.
Applejack: ...incredible.
Potion Nova: I have so many gumballs! More than I ever could've guessed!
Mane Six and Potion Nova: [laugh]
