Oh my god locomotives and tumbleweeds and oh my god.
Awwwww. AJ you are ridiculous. Reading to trees. That’s beautiful. Rarity, calm down. “You talk about it as if it’s your baby or something.” That’s the way. Personifying (ponifying?) inanimate objects is the greatest, and also her relatives in Appaloosa. Boy, oh boy.
Twang twang twang music d’aww. And Rarity is not a staying up late pony, and you know what? That’s okay.
“You know she’s not a tree, right?” “I’d like to be a tree.”
HUFFY THE MAGIC DRAGON I am wallowing around in the cuteness right now.
Buffalo! Oh, boy!
Also, I like that the ponies carrying the train have conductor hats on.
Is that… a deer? A deer with a headband with feathers?
Also, AJ’s cousin sounds like he’s voiced by a Saturday Night Live cast member. And “settler ponies”? And the Salt Block OH MY GOD OH MY GOD A SHERIFF AND A BARKEEP AND OH MY GOD.
…is this becoming a morality tale about imperialism and taking land from the Native Americans? I think it might be.
And the maybe-Native American buffalo talks like a California surfer?
I am not sure what to think right now.
She actually just said “loco in the coco.” I knew people who said that back in, like, junior high. I find that oddly appropriate. Is that a baby buffalo without fur? Yep.
“Traditional stampeding grounds.” “Chief Thunderhooves.” Ye-ah. They’re going there. There are teepees for chrissakes.
I have a solution. They move the trees somewhere else and everyone lives in harmony. That would be ideal.
Okay, issues of moral high ground, oh dear. Twi, come up with a solution.
What was that male sheriff pony with a pony stache? And why is Pinkie Pie dressed like one of the crummy cheesy saloon girls I hate while Spike wears a bowler hat? Oh, baby, you have good intentions, good intentions of showing everyone what they are the same inside, but what are you doing. What are you doing.
Sheriff Silverstar. OH DEAR SWEET GOD.
Also, your good intentions so didn’t happen. And that pony stache looks way flatter than anything else that is on a pony.
BOARD UP THE TOWN THAT WILL CLEARLY PREVENT THE BUFFALO FROM RUNNING THINGS OVER nope just kidding. Twi, I know, just call Princess Celestia and see what she thinks about it. I mean, royal decrees could really help, couldn’t they?
“Why won’t anybody be rational and reasonable?” Thank you, Twi. I ask this question of people every day of my life. And I’m asking it of everypony in this show.
…I’m still not sure how to feel about this.
Guys, you know you’re just giving them more of your stuff to run over, right? And also, pies are really ineffective weapons. Or they should be. Apparently not? Apparently there are anvils in the hay bales and – I don’t even know what’s happening right now, and I am confused by it, and confused by intentions, and they have two minutes to tell me what the heck is going on and why and have I ever mentioned how pretty I find the clouds in this animation?
And then the buffalo chief… was changed by the taste of pie?
They just carved a path through the orchard, see, that seems like a viable solution and I wanna know why they didn’t think of it at the start. I mean, it’s pretty intuitive, you’d think?
D’awwwww holy crap Fluttershy you are the absolute cutest ever. Playing vet.
Sugarcube Corner. I just. Occasionally all I can do is sit around and flip out over how adorable and ridiculous their names for things are. And then the theme song is the actual most ridiculous thing that is on this planet. Actually, no. I’m pretty sure the warm fuzzies this show gives me are the most ridiculous.
They’re like Buckingham Palace guards but they’re dressed like gladiators. Rainbow, see, this is why you couldn’t be one of the guards. You’re too hyperactive.
Mr. and Mrs. Cake.
“I thought I was the only one who got nervous at social gatherings.” Flutter this is why I love you the most (except Twi).
And Rarity, what the heck are you wearing. And AJ, why are you getting neurotic about the noms. And Pinkie, stop bouncing. This is why you frustrate me a lot of the time. And why does Mrs. Cake sound like a character in a John Waters film.
“As princess, I care deeply about all creatures, great and small.” Except your bird is clearly sick and yucky.
And now missing. Why is the bird named Philomina? I don’t get the reference. Is it just because it sounds fancy and the princess is fancy?
This bird clearly has a condition that should require an animal hospital. Bless you, Flutter, but I don’t know if this is something you can fix yourself. You just called yourself a doctor, but you are not actually a doctor.
Also, I think this bird must have some sort of demented death wish. Clearly she does not want to get better, no matter how adorable Flutter is in trying to heal her.
I don’t know that I necessarily know what to do with this episode, either.
Such good intentions, Flutter, but good intentions go awry. Twi, that is a valid point. But you know what, I bet that even though that is a good point, and Flutter needs to learn a lesson probably, Celestia will probably forgive her anyway.
And here comes Twi the tough as nails veterinary assistant. Oh, baby.
…although, uhm, be careful what you do with your magicks, sweetheart. Just sayin’.
Seriously, though, what is this bird’s trip?
Like I don’t even know what this episode is about.
What the bird is a phoenix? The bird is a phoenix. And now Celestia gets to teach them all some things. Lessons! So many lessons!
“Next time I’ll ask before taking matters into my own hooves.”
