Spike: Ugh, come on Twilight. We'll gonna be late for the Nightmare Night festival. Huh? Are you that one kooky grandpa from Ponyville Retirement Village?
Twilight Sparkle: I'm Star Swirl the Bearded. Father of the amniomorphic spell. Did you even read that book I gave you about obscure unicorn history?
Spike: Uh.. [knocking] That sounds important.
Fillies: Nightmare Night! What a fright! Give us something sweet to bite!
Twilight Sparkle: Hi, everypony. Great costumes. Happy Nightmare Night, Granny Smith.
Granny Smith: I should have been asleep five hours ago.
Pipsqueak: Pipsqueak the pirate, at your service. It's my very first Nightmare Night.
Twilight Sparkle: Since you moved here from Trottingham?
Pipsqueak: No, my very first Nightmare Night ever!
Pinkie Pie: [chicken squawk] Enough chitchat! Time is candy!
Twilight Sparkle: Pinkie Pie, aren't you a little old for this?
Pinkie Pie: Too old for free candy? [chicken squawk] Never.
Twilight Sparkle: [bell jingles] Do you like it?
Pinkie Pie: Yeah! Great costume, Twilight! You make a fantastic weirdo clown!
Twilight Sparkle: A clown? Look at the borders on these robes. These are hoof-stitched!
Spike: It's a great costume... grandpa.
Twilight Sparkle: [groans]
[ theme ]
Twilight Sparkle: Starswirl the Bearded is only the most important conjurer of the pre-classical era.
Background ponies: Yeah! Woohoo!
Twilight Sparkle: He created more than 200 spells! He even has a shelf in the Canterlot library of magic named after him. Maybe I should start up a pony group to teach ponies about history. I bet everypony would love it! Don't you, Spike?
Spike: Mhmm! [eating noises] I'll love it.
Twilight Sparkle: Hey look, we're here already! Should we get something to eat?
Spike: [burp]
Pinkie Pie: Twilight, Twilight! Look at our haul! Ah! Can you believe it? And then, we went to Cheerilee's house, and got a bunch more goodies. Didn't we, Pip?
Pipsqueak: Sure did!
Pinkie Pie: And then, we had to stop away from Granny Smith, and-[lightning zap] Bwak!
Pinkie Pie, Pipsqueak, and fillies: [screaming]
Rainbow Dash: [laughing maniacally]
Twilight Sparkle: Rainbow Dash, that wasn't very nice.
Rainbow Dash: Lighten up, old-timer. It's the best night of the year for pranks!
Twilight Sparkle: Look what you did to Spike.
Spike: [choking on candy]
Rainbow Dash: It's all in good fun. OH OH, there's another group over there!
Background ponies: [lightning zap] [ponies scream]
Twilight Sparkle: Happy Nightmare Night, Applejack!
Applejack: Howdy Spike, hey Twilight! Nice costume.
Spike: Thanks! I'm a dragon.
Twilight Sparkle: She means me, Spike.
Applejack: With that beard, I reckon you're some sorta country music singer.
Spike: [laughing]
Applejack: While y'all here, ya' feel like bobbin' for an apple?
[cheering and applauding]
Mayor: Thank you, everypony, and welcome to the Nightmare Night festival!
[cheering and applauding]
Mayor: Now all the little ponies who have been out collecting sweets should follow our friend Zecora to hear the legend of Night Mare Moon! [laughter]
Spike: Spooky voice might work better is she wasn't dressed like that.
Twilight Sparkle: [Giggling]
Zecora: Follow me and very soon you'll hear the tale of Night Mare Moon. Listen close my little dears, and I'll tell you where you got your fears of Nightmare Night, so dark and scary. Of Night Mare Moon, who makes you wary.
All: [gasps]
Zecora: Every year, we put on a disguise, to save ourselves, from her searching eyes.
Fillies: [screaming]
Zecora: But Night Mare Moon wants just one thing. To gobble up ponies in one quick swing.
'Pipsqueak and Pinkie Pie': [scream]
Zecora: Hungerly, she soars the sky. If she sees nopony, she passes by. So if she comes and all is clear, Equestria is safe another year!
Pipsqueak: Uh, Miss Zecora, if we wear costumes to hide from Night Mare Moon, so she won't gobble us up, how come we still need to give her some of our candy?
Zecora: A perfect question, my little friend. For Night Mare Moon you must not offend. Fill up her belly with a treat or two, so she won't return to come eat you!
Pinkie Pie: [screaming] Everypony! Just dump some candy and get out of here!
All: [screaming]
Pinkie Pie: Ah! It's Night Mare Moon! Run!
All: [screaming]
All: [screaming]
[thunder, lightning, screaming
Twilight Sparkle: Princess Luna!
Cloud Kicker: [whimpers]
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Citizens of Ponyville! We have graced your tiny village with our presence, so that you might behold the real princess of the night! A creature of nightmare is no longer, but instead a pony who desires your love and admiration! Together we shall change this dreadful celebration into a bright and glorious feast!
[lightning]
Pinkie Pie: Did you hear that, everypony? Night Mare Moon says she's gonna feast on us all!
All: [screaming]
Princess Luna: [normal voice] What? No children, no! You no longer have reason to fear us! Screams of delight is what your princess desires, not screams of terror! Madame Mayor, the princess of the night hath arrived.
White pony: [gasps]
Princess Luna: What is the matter with you? Very well then. Be that way. We won't even bother with the traditional royal farewell.
Twilight Sparkle: I'm gonna go talk to her.
Spike: You can't talk to her! She's Night Mare Moon!
Twilight Sparkle: No, she's not. I saw the Elements of Harmony change her back to good! But it seems like she's having some trouble adjusting after being gone for a thousand years.
Twilight Sparkle: Princess Luna? Hi, my name is-
Princess Luna: Starswirl the Bearded. Commendable costume. Thou even got the bells right.
Twilight Sparkle: Thank you, finally! Somepony who gets my costume! Uh, I just came to welcome you to our celebration! My actual name is-
Princess Luna: Twilight Sparkle. [booming voice] It was thou who unleashed the powers of harmony upon us and took away our dark powers!
Twilight Sparkle: And that was a good thing, right?
Princess Luna: [normal voice] But of course. We could not be happier. Is that not clear?
Twilight Sparkle: Well, you kinda sound like you're yelling at me.
Princess Luna: But this is the traditional royal Canterlot voice! It is tradition to speak, using the royal "we", and [booming voice] to use this much volume when addressing our subjects!
Twilight Sparkle: You know, that might explain why your appearance was met with... mixed results. I think if you just changed your approach a bit, you might be met with a warmer reception.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Change our approach?
Twilight Sparkle: Lower the volume..!
Princess Luna: [normal voice] Oh. We have been locked away for a thousand years. We are not sure we can.
Twilight Sparkle: Don't worry, Princess. Fluttershy can give you some great pointers. She's delicate and demure with the sweetest little voice.
Fluttershy: Go away! No candy here! Visitors not welcome on Nightmare Night!
Twilight Sparkle: Fluttershy, it's me, Twilight!
Fluttershy: It is you. Oh, and Night Mare Moon. [gasp] Night Mare Moon?!
Twilight Sparkle: [nervous laughter] Wait right here.
[noise]
Twilight Sparkle: Fluttershy... you remember Princess Luna?
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Charmed.
Fluttershy: Likewise.
Princess Luna: Twilight Sparkle hath spoken of the sweetness of thy voice. We ask, thou teach us ??? to speak as thou speakest.
Fluttershy: [quiet] Okay.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Shall our lessons begin?
Fluttershy: [quieter] Okay.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Shall we mimic thy voice?
Fluttershy: [quiet] Okay.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] How is this?
Fluttershy: Perfect. Lesson over.
Twilight Sparkle: A little quieter, princess.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] How is... [normal voice] this?
Twilight Sparkle: Better. Right, Fluttershy?
Fluttershy: [nervous laughter] Yes.
Princess Luna: [normal, but loud voice] How... about... now?
Twilight Sparkle: Now you're getting it.
Princess Luna: [normal voice] And... how about now?
Twilight Sparkle: Yes! Well done.
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Ah, thank you, dear Fluttershy! Our normal speaking voice shall surely win us the hearts of thy fellow villagers.
Pinkie Pie: Fluttershy! You've gotta hide us! Night Mare Moon is here and... [chicken squawk] She stole Fluttershy's voice so she can't scream when she GOBBLES HER UP!!!
Children: [screaming]
Princess Luna: [booming voice] Nay, children, wait! [normal voice] I mean... nay, children, wait.
Twilight Sparkle: Come on, princess. Time for plan B.
All: Hurray!
Several ponies [whimper]
Princess Luna: It is of no use, Twilight Sparkle. They have never liked us and they never shall.
Twilight Sparkle: My friend Applejack is one of the most likeable ponies around. I'm sure she'll have some ideas.
Pipsqueak: Heee...!
Applejack: Whoop. Careful there, partner. [whimper]
Twilight Sparkle: Uh... Applejack, the princess is looking for a little advice on how to fit in around here.
Applejack: "Fit in"? Really?
Twilight Sparkle: [snarl]
Applejack: I mean... that's easy! All you gotta do is have the right attitude. Loosen up a bit, be positive, play a few games, have some fun.
Princess Luna: Fun? What is this "fun" thou speakest of? Pray tell, what purpose do these serve?
Pony: Try to land the sp-sp-spiders on the web.
Applejack: You can do it, princess!
Princess Luna: Ha! Your princess enjoys this. Fun. In what other ways may we experience it?
Twilight Sparkle: Fire away, princess!
Princess Luna: Ha ha! The fun has been doubled!
Applejack: Why don't you try bobbin' for apples? We got the best apples in Equestria, princess.
Princess Luna: I ask that thou call us... me... Luna, fair Applejack. Hear me, villagers! All of you! Call me Luna!
Ponies: Luna! What a nice ???
Princess Luna: Show me to this bobbing apples.
Pipsqueak: Whoa!
Pinkie Pie: Hey, gals. Anypony seen Pip? We lost him the last time we had to run... [chicken squawk] Aaah! Night Mare Moon is gobbling Pipsqueak! Everypony run!
Pipsqueak: Help! My backside has been gobbled!
Princess Luna: 'Tis a lie! Thy backside is whole and ungobbled, thou ungrateful whelp! [thunder] Fair villagers, please do not back away. Let us join together in... fun! Not enough fun for you? What say you to this?
Everypony: [scream]
Princess Luna: Huzzah! How many points do I receive? Do not run away! As your princess we command you!
Everypony: [scream]
Princess Luna: [deafening voice] Be still!!! [echo]
Twilight Sparkle: Princess, remember! Watch the screaming!
Princess Luna: [booming voice] No, Twilight Sparkle! We must use the traditional royal Canterlot voice for what we are about to say. If you choose to fear your princess rather than love her and dishonor her with this insulting celebration, we decree that Nightmare Night shall be canceled! Forever!
Applejack: Shoot. We had everything goin' our way. Luna was happy, everypony in town was happy, now look at 'em.
Noi: But I wanted to be a zombie next year.
Twilight Sparkle: It's not over yet.
Applejack: What are you gonna do?
Twilight Sparkle: I'm going to do what I do best. Lecture her!
Twilight Sparkle: Princess.
Princess Luna: Leave me be, Twilight Sparkle.
Twilight Sparkle: Princess. I'm sorry it hasn't worked out how we wanted. But you have to believe me when I tell you that Nightmare Night is one of the most popular celebrations we have.
Princess Luna: Yes. I can tell. And all the adoring shrieks of the children as they run away.
Twilight Sparkle: [with regret] Princess...
Ponies: [whimper]
Pinkie Pie: [chicken squawk]
Twilight Sparkle: No! No shrieking. No screaming or squealing either. Okay?
Pinkie Pie: Okay.
Twilight Sparkle: There's something I want you to see. And I promise that it's safe, but you really, really can't shriek. Do you promise not to shriek?
Pinkie Pie: Mmhm. [chicken squawk]
Twilight Sparkle: Pinkie Pie, you remember Princess Luna, right?
Princess Luna: Ah. The ringleader of the frightened children. Hast thou come to make peace?
[thunder]
Pinkie Pie: Night Mare Moon!
Twilight Sparkle: Rainbow!
Rainbow Dash: [laughter]
Twilight Sparkle: She's changed, Pinkie! She's not evil or scary anymore! And she definitely doesn't want to gobble you up!
Pinkie Pie: Well, duh.
Twilight Sparkle: Huh?
Pinkie Pie: I know that. Sheesh, Twilight. I'm almost as big as her. How she can gobble me up?
Twilight Sparkle: So why do you keep running away and screaming?
Pinkie Pie: Sometimes it's just really fun to be scared.
Twilight Sparkle: Fun? Pinkie Pie, you're a genius!
Pinkie Pie: No, I'm not. I'm a chicken. [chicken squawk]
Twilight Sparkle: Princess Luna! I've finally figured out why you're having so much trouble being liked!
Princess Luna: Forgive me if I withhold my enthusiasm.
Twilight Sparkle: Come with me. I'll explain everything on the way.
Pipsqueak: Gosh. I never thought my very first Nightmare Night would be my very last.
Zecora: Come, little Pip. Now don't you fret. Nightmare Night's not over yet. We still have candy left to give, so Night Mare Moon might let us live.
The Mayor: Yes. come on, my little ponies. What's Nightmare Night without the annual candy offering? You don't want Night Mare Moon to gobble you up, [spooky voice] do you?
Spike: Aw, the rainbow wig just kills it for me.
Applejack: Come on, kids! Doesn't that sound like fun?
Pipsqueak: Goodbye Nightmare Night. Forever.
Night Mare Moon: [booming voice] Citizens of Ponyville! You were wise to bring these candies to me. I am pleased with your offering. So pleased that I may just eat it instead of eating you!
Ponies: [scream]
Princess Luna: I am not certain that did what you meant for it to do, Twilight Sparkle.
Twilight Sparkle: Just wait.
Princess Luna: For what? For... for them to scream some more?
Pipsqueak: Um... Princess Luna. I know there's not gonna be any more Nightmare Night, but do you suppose maybe you could come back next year and scare us again anyway?
Princess Luna: Child. Art thou saying that thou... likest me to scare you?
Pipsqueak: It's really fun! Scary, but fun.
Princess Luna: It... is?
Pipsqueak: Yeah! Nightmare Night is my favorite night of the year.
Princess Luna: Well then. We shall have to bring [booming voice] Nightmare Night back!
Pipsqueak: Whoa! You're my favorite princess ever! She said yes, guys!
Children: YAY!
Twilight Sparkle: See? They really do like you, princess.
Princess Luna: Can it be true? [booming voice] Oh, most wonderful of...! [normal voice] I mean... Oh, most wonderful of nights.
Twilight Sparkle: Dear Princess Celestia,
When you first sent me to Ponyville I didn't know anything about friendship. I met somepony tonight who was having the same problem - your sister, Princess Luna. She taught me that one of the best things you can do with friendship is to give it to others and help them find it themselves. I am happy to report that all of Ponyville has learned that even if somepony seems a little intimidating, even scary, when you offer them your friendship, you'll discover a whole new pony underneath. And even if my Starswirl the Bearded costume didn't go over, this still turned out to be the best Nightmare Night ever.
[thunder]
Rainbow Dash: [scream]
Princess Luna: [laughter]
Spike and Twilight: [laughter]
