Potion Mystery

Rainbow Dash: And for my next trick... [slurps]
Rainbow Dash: Gotta go dash!
Fluttershy: Oh! [giggles] How precious. Me next. [slurps]
[slide whistle]
Fluttershy: Hmm. I don't feel anything. Wait! The crick in my neck is gone! Double wait. What are you doing down there? [giggles]
Rainbow Dash: [laughs]
Fluttershy: It made you all shorter.
Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy: [laugh]
[door opens]
Pinkie Pie: Helloooo! Just in time for the last potion.
Twilight Sparkle: [slurps]
Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy: [laugh]
Twilight Sparkle: Potions are so zany! Do you know when you're ordering more, Pinkie?
Pinkie Pie: I don't order them. I thought you ordered them.
Twilight Sparkle: Me?
[door opens]
Spike: Who ordered what? We gettin' pizza?
[door closes]
Twilight Sparkle: Wait, if I don't order them and you don't order them, then where do they come from?
Pinkie Pie: Uh, the fridge, of course!
Twilight Sparkle: Yes, but who puts them there?
Pinkie Pie: Huh. Now that you mention it, I'm not sure. Whoever it is refills it while we're sleeping every night.
Twilight Sparkle: You're telling me a stranger sneaks into Sugarcube Corner, restocks our potions, and leaves without a word?
Twilight Sparkle: Hmmm...
Pinkie Pie: [yelps] Is something wrong?! Did the fridge die?!
Twilight Sparkle: I will find the culprit.
Pinkie Pie: Wasn't me. I have an "ali-pie". [chomps]
Twilight Sparkle: It's odd. I can't find a single print or hair that would help me determine who was involved.
Rainbow Dash: You could call this a... cold case.
Spike: YEEEEEAAAAAAH—! [groans] Sorry. Stubbed my toe.
Twilight Sparkle: I'd wager to say this case is just heating up!
Spike: YEEEEEAAAAAAH—! [groans] Ow! Stubbed my other toe.
Fluttershy: Who's to say it's a pony at all? What if it's a magical creature?
Twilight Sparkle: The evidence says otherwise. These potions are made by a gifted magic user/scientist. A genius! A pony I absolutely must meet!
Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy: Huh?
Twilight Sparkle: They must've been perfecting this recipe their whole life. Every time I try to reformulate one of these potions, I fail miserably.
Twilight Sparkle: One failure closer to success! [coughs]
Twilight Sparkle: It's imperative we find them so I can become their apprentice! If we empty the fridge, they'll restock it tonight. Then we stay up!
Pinkie Pie: And catch 'em in the act!
Fluttershy: Ooh! We can build a pillow fort!
Twilight Sparkle: Now we get comfy and wait.
Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie: [snoring]
[owl hoots]
[rooster crows]
Twilight Sparkle: No! We missed them!
Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie: Huh?
Fluttershy: Quiet like a mouse. I respect it.
Twilight Sparkle: That's it! No more pillows! It's too comfy! Too dangerous!
Twilight Sparkle: We have to stay awake at all costs!
Rainbow Dash: [snoring]
[owl hoots]
[rooster crows]
Twilight Sparkle: [gasps]
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
Pinkie Pie: [grunts]
Winona: [barks]
[owl hoots]
[rooster crows]
Winona: [snoring]
Rainbow Dash: [sighs] I'm sorry, Twilight. Once the sun goes down, so do my eyelids.
Fluttershy: Maybe this is one mystery that is meant to remain unsolved.
Twilight Sparkle: No. This isn't the end of the line. Not by a long shot. Rainbow Dash, hide the rest of the potions. Pinkie, nothing cracks louder than your peanut brittle. We'll lay a trap that will wake even the sleepiest sleeper! Fluttershy, dust the floor in powdered sugar. We'll get hoofprints one way or another! They'll never see us comin'.
Pinkie Pie: [snores]
Rainbow Dash: [groans, snores]
Fluttershy: [snores]
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
[bells ringing]
Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Twilight Sparkle: [yelp]
Twilight Sparkle: Gotcha!
Rainbow Dash: I'm awake! Definitely so awake!
Pinkie Pie: Uh, Twilight? [smacks lips] I think our plan is crumbling. It needs more butter.
Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Twilight Sparkle: [sigh]
[bells ringing]
[crickets chirp]
[magical whooshing]
[door opens]
Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, and Twilight Sparkle: [snoring]
[magic sounds]
Potion Nova: [giggles]

Sick Day

Rainbow Dash: [slurping]
Pinkie Pie: Hold on to your cutie marks! We just got our biggest order yet!
Rarity, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash: [gasp]
Pinkie Pie: Celestia needs six different flavors, two dozen each! All for her big birthday ba... ahh... [sneezes]
Pinkie Pie: Excuse me.
Rainbow Dash: You're sick!
Pinkie Pie: Just a little tickle in my muzzle. [sneezes]
Rarity, Applejack, and Rainbow Dash: Uh...
Pinkie Pie: [nervous laugh]
Applejack: Oh, please. Get her to quarantine!
Pinkie Pie: [groans]
Rainbow Dash: You're no exception. I already sent Twilight and Fluttershy home with acute cough-itis.
Twilight Sparkle and Fluttershy: [shivering]
Fluttershy: Special... pizza delivery... for my brain...
Twilight Sparkle: Pardon...? [coughs] Which way to the peppermint cabbage patch...?
Pinkie Pie: I can't leave the kitchen! Who will make Celestia's cupcakes? Ah... [sneezes]
Rarity: Darling, you must rest. We'll take care of things around here.
Pinkie Pie: Mmm, fine. I'll go, but we can't screw up this order. Follow these closely!
Rarity: Lovely. Germy instructions.
Pinkie Pie: Nope.
Applejack: [screams]
Pinkie Pie: It's a glossary of helpful terms that will come in handy when reading the actual instructions.
Applejack: [groans]
Rainbow Dash: Hmmm...
Pinkie Pie: [groans]
Rainbow Dash: Okay, Pinkie, off you go. The cupcakes are in good hooves. See ya!
Pinkie Pie: [yelps]
Rainbow Dash: Rest up.
Rarity: Oh, poor Sicky Pie. But we'll do just fine without her precious rules.
Applejack: [coughs]
Applejack: Uh... gesundheit?
Rainbow Dash: [groans]
Rarity: Oh, not you, too!
Applejack: [sniffles]
Rarity: Home, Applejack! Home! Spare the rest of us.
Applejack: Fine. [sniffles] I'm goin', but I'm not— [coughs] —happy about it.
Pinkie Pie: [panicked whimpering] Gotta work! Gotta perfect the recipe for Celestia! Oh, no! What about frosting? [shudders] Marzipan, cotton candy, lavender, jasmine, butter, bean soup, candle wax, and pickles! Makes my tummy rumble!
[stomach rumbles]
Pinkie Pie: Oopsies. But I have to share this with Rainbow Dash and Rarity! What do you think, Gummy?! Blink once if you hate it!
Pinkie Pie: Good enough for me!
Rainbow Dash: Ahhh...
Rainbow Dash: Uh, these look edible-ish. How are we doing on frosting, Rarity?
Rarity: [vibrating] Noooooot greeeeeeat!
Rainbow Dash: Yeah, may be time to crack open Pinkie's playbook.
[phone rings]
Rarity: Hello?
[indistinct chatter]
Rarity: Celestia! What's that? You're coming early?!
[blender whirring]
Rarity: That's completely fine! See you soon!
Rarity: What do we do?! What do we do?! If only we had written instructions on how to properly run a cupcake business!
[pounding on door]
Pinkie Pie: [groaning] Must... bake... cupcakes...!
[door creaks]
Rainbow Dash and Rarity: [gasp]
Pinkie Pie: Pickles... are in... the fridge...
Rainbow Dash: Pickles? She's delirious.
Pinkie Pie: Reeeeead the instructioooons... and pull the red lever on the auto-froster! Section Pink, subsection D! [singsong] The footnotes!
Rarity: We promise we'll read the instructions. Just stay in bed to keep the virus from spreading!
Rainbow Dash: Phew! Bet you barricading the door isn't in that binder.
Pinkie Pie Hologram: Hello, friends. If you're seeing this, I have a terrible fever and you probably barricaded me in my room by now in order to fill a request without me. Please do the opposite of whatever my delirious mind makes me say, and all will be well. That's a Pinkie Promise! Love you! Bye!
[winding down]
Rainbow Dash: Hmmm.
Rarity: Well, she did say to push the red lever. So that means...
Rainbow Dash: Pull the blue lever!
Rainbow Dash: Whoa!
[knock on door]
[door opens]
Princess Celestia: [gasps]
Princess Celestia: Oh, perfect. I'm so glad I chose Sugarcube Corner for my party-catering needs.
Rainbow Dash and Rarity: Us, too!
Rarity and Applejack: [slurping]
Pinkie Pie: Whoo-hoo-hoo!
Rarity: Pinkie! You look as healthy as your hologram.
Pinkie Pie: Thank you for taking care of business while I was down. I'm glad I listened to you and rested.
Rainbow Dash: And we're glad we listened to you and followed your directions. Eventually. We should've trusted you from the get-go.
Pinkie Pie: Well, it all worked out perfectly.
[stomach rumbles]
Rarity: Blegh!
Rarity: Oh, no, it's fine. I feel absolute— [vomits]
Rest of Mane Six: [sounds of disgust]
