Time After Time Capsule

[calculator clicking]
[calculator yawns, snores]
Mane Six sans Pinkie Pie: Huh?
Pinkie Pie: Galaxy glow-in-the-dark glaze! Get 'em while they're glowing!
Rest of Mane Six: [excited sounds]
Rarity: Wow, Pinkie! These dough-cup-pops look out of this world!
Pinkie Pie: They are! I used more of my special Cotton Candy Comet crystals!
Applejack: Ooh! [chomps]
Applejack: [chuckles] It's like a fizz-poppin' party in my mouth!
Rainbow Dash: I gotta try that! [chomps]
Twilight Sparkle: [chomps]
Rarity: [chomps]
Fluttershy: [chomps]
Mane Six: [laughing]
Fluttershy: [sighs]
Applejack: Somethin' wrong, Fluttershy?
Fluttershy: Quite the opposite. Things are so amazing right now. But I just wish I could freeze this time forever.
Rarity: Well, you can! Selfie time!
Mane Six: [laugh]
[camera clicks]
Rarity: And print!
[camera whirs]
Fluttershy: It's perfect!
Pinkie Pie: I love it! What else can we do so we don't forget how much fun we're having?
Twilight Sparkle: We should make a time capsule!
Pinkie Pie: Ooh! Then each of us can choose one super-duper-perfect thing to put in it, then we'll bury it, and dig it back up way, way later?
Rest of Mane Six: [excited sounds]
Applejack: So it's settled then. Everypony meet at Ponyville Park tomorrow with your extra-special, one-of-a-kind item.
Rest of Mane Six: [giggle]
Applejack: Now this is perfect!
Rainbow Dash: Um... Hah! Easy-peasy!
Twilight Sparkle: Add nostalgia, multiply by sentimentality, plus usefulness... [gasps]
Rarity: [gasps] It's perfection. [kisses] Even better!
Opalescence: [meows]
Gummy: [slurping]
Pinkie Pie: Hmm. Hmm. Hmm.
Gummy: [slurping]
Pinkie Pie: That's a great idea, Gummy! I know exactly what to put in the time capsule!
Fluttershy: Okay, so which of these things represents me? Oh, I do love my Finn Tastic pillow. But this squeaky carrot from Angel Bunny is also quite special.
[squeak, squeak!]
Angel: [growls]
Fluttershy: I did make lots of fun memories at the Potion Ocean. Maybe my sunglasses? It's so hard to pick just one thing to remind "Future Fluttershy" of all the fun "Now Fluttershy" is having with her best friends! [whimpers]
Applejack: I brought my third favorite cowpony hat. It's just like the one I was wearin' when I first met all y'all.
Rest of Mane Six: [laughing]
Applejack: What'd you ponies bring?
Pinkie Pie: I brought us the time capsule!
Rainbow Dash: A first place ribbon from the Sportacular Spectacular, when we all competed as a team!
Twilight Sparkle: My favorite calculator, because all of us added together equals friendship!
Rarity: Drumroll, darlings! The script from my episode of Hoof Session! My monologue as Greedenia P. Dollarsign is seared right into my memory! So you needn't worry! I can recite it for you all at any time! Any time at all! Like now.
Pinkie Pie, Twilight Sparkle, and Rainbow Dash: [whistling]
Rarity: Hm.
Pinkie Pie: I also brought my best mixing bowl.
Rest of Mane Six: Ooh.
Pinkie Pie: It's the one I used in the Royal Jelly Juggernaut: All-Star Chefs spin-off.
Applejack: That just leaves you, Fluttershy. What'd you bring?
Rest of Mane Six: Huh?
Pinkie Pie: Fluttershy?
[knock on door]
[door opens]
Rarity: Darling, are you all right?
Twilight Sparkle: Why'd you leave our time capsule ceremony?
Fluttershy: I left because I... I... I couldn't decide! [higher-pitched] Nothing I choose seems special enough to represent our friendship. Just look at this photo. We're all laughing, eating dough-cup-pops, and having a great time. What one single item can show all that?
Rainbow Dash: Um, are you ponies seeing what I'm seeing?
Rest of Mane Six: [sounds of agreement]
Fluttershy: [higher-pitched] Hmm? [gasps] Of course! It's been right under my muzzle this whole time!
Fluttershy: It's awesome! Just like my friends!
Rest of Mane Six: Awwww.
Mane Six: [laughing]
Applejack: Hey, Pinkie? That treasure box really was just the thing. Where'd you get it?
Rest of Mane Six: Huh?
Pinkie Pie: Oh, just from one of the mysterious magical balloons. Why?
[vortex swirling]
Mane Six sans Fluttershy: [yelp]
Fluttershy: [yelp]
Mane Six: [screaming]

The Great Cowgirl Hat Robbery

Applejack and Rarity: [screaming]
[operatically] Aaaaaall this swirling in the vortex
I wonder where we're going.
Applejack and Rarity: [screaming]
Applejack and Rarity: [grunt]
Applejack: More like "I wonder when we're going." Hey... This is Sugar Street! I reckon that vortex sent us back in time to Old Equestria!
Rarity: Time travel? My goodness, how can you tell?
Applejack: [chuckles] I recognized it from old pioneer pony tales Granny Smith would tell me. Oh, this is excitin'! I've always dreamt of bein' a real cowpony!
Cowgirl Pony: You two lose your hats or somethin'?
Rarity: Why, she's right. I'm not sporting a chapeau, and neither are you.
Applejack: That's it! Remember how I put my cowpony hat into the time capsule?
Applejack: Are you, uh, pickin' what I'm growin'?
Rarity: Yes! We're going shopping for hats!
Applejack: [sighs] What I mean is,r I think we gotta find my cowpony hat to get back home. But don't worry. [chuckles] These country folk are just my kind of ponies. Here. Follow my lead.
[lasso whipping]
Applejack: 'Scuse me. Do you know where we can find a hat?
Cowgirl Pony: Reckon there are hats every which way is where.
[wheel squeaking]
Applejack: Right... But this hat's special.
Cowgirl Pony: You sayin' my hat ain't special?
Applejack: Uh...
Rarity: [country accent] Howdy, stranger. My time-trottin' partner and I are hot on the trail of her missing cowgirl hat. Without it, she's as lost as an alligator in an ice storm.
Cowgirl Pony: Well, why didn't ya say so? You'll need to see ol' Saddle Bags. He's been ramblin' about a cowgirl hat that fell out of the sky that's a-glowin' like it swallowed the sun. That's Saddle Bags. Always spinnin' yarn.
Applejack: [scoffs] I don't get it. Why'd she answer you and not me?
Applejack: [gasps] My hat!
Saddle Bags: What in tarnation is all the commotion?!
Applejack: Heh. You must be Saddle Bags. Howdy to you. That happens to be my hat, and I really need it back.
Saddle Bags: Your hat? This here's my hat! I'm holdin' it, aren't I? [chuckles]
Saddle Bags: [chuckles]
Rarity: This isn't working, Applejack. Let me try my something.
Applejack: I got this. These ponies are my kin. I appreciate what you're sayin', but, uh, the hat really does belong to me.
Saddle Bags: Ah, razzle and dazzle!
Applejack: I... I don't know what that means.
Saddle Bags: The hat chooses the pony. Like an alligator chooses a warm climate. Old Saddle Bags here will only part with it to the cowpony who proves themselves worthy in front of the entire town.
Applejack: Hmmm... Time for this cowpony to giddy up.
[lasso whipping]
Cowboy Pony: Hey!
Applejack: Betcha never seen a thing like this before. This here's real cowpony stuff. [gasps]
Saddle Bags: That's nothin'! I juggle apples in my sleep! Literally.
[cowponies cheer]
Saddle Bags: [chomps] I have issues. Hat stays with me!
[sad music]
Applejack: Turns out I'm not a real cowpony after all.
Rarity: You are a real cowpony. You're our real cowpony.
Applejack: And you're a real actress. [gasps] That's it! These Wild West ponies want a show? That's just what we'll give 'em!
Applejack: Saddle Bags?
[cowponies gasp, scream]
Applejack: That hat belongs to me - Applejack, the outlaw of Old Equestria. I mean, Now Equestria.
[lasso whipping]
Applejack: [grunts]
Rarity: [country accent] Un-hoof these innocents, outlaw!
[cowponies cheer]
[clocktower bell rings]
[hawk cries]
Rarity: There's no place for scoundrels like you in a time like this. You're a thing of the past! We are the future!
[cowponies cheer]
Applejack: [yelps, laughs]
[cowponies cheer]
Applejack: I know when I'm defeated, sheriff. I've learned my lesson. I will try to lead a true and noble life. A life you yourself would be proud of.
[cowponies awww]
Applejack: That hat doesn't belong to me. It belongs to a pony who's worthy.
Saddle Bags: Well, I'll be an alligator in a swamp! You cowponies are worthy! That was some high-class show-tainment! I got razzled, and you surely did dazzle! [chuckles]
Applejack: Now I get it!
Applejack and Rarity: Yeeee-haw!
[vortex swirling]
[cowponies gasp]
Saddle Bags: Now do you believe me, Mrs. Bags?!
Saddle Bags: Aw, pickles and stew!
