Sweet and Elite/Transcript

The viewer is presented with Canterlot as a royal fanfare sounds. As the view approaches one can see Rarity and Princess Celestia standing atop a staircase winding up a castle spire ~
Rarity: [astonished gasp] Here? I get to stay here?!
Princess Celestia: Twilight Sparkle said you were coming to Canterlot for a visit, and asked if I might accommodate you.
Rarity: Thank you so much, Princess.
Princess Celestia: You're very welcome.
Rarity: No, really. This is so nice of you.
Princess Celestia: It's nothing, really.
Rarity: Oh, but it isn't nothing! It's everything! I- I just don't know what to say but thank you... Thank you!
[begins kissing the princess' hooves as she's thanking her]
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Princess Celestia: You are very wel-
Rarity: Thank you!
Porter: [emerging through the door, exhausted] Your luggage, mademoiselle?
Princess Celestia: I'll leave you to get settled.
Porter: Your highness.
Princess Celestia: Enjoy your stay.
Rarity: Thank you!
Porter: Where would you like me to put these?
[he collapses]
Rarity: That's perfect.
[ theme ]
Rarity is enjoying a cup of tea outdoors at a café ~
Rarity: Opal, do you know what I love about Canterlot? [sips her tea] Ahhh... Everything! I may have been born in Ponyville, but I am a Canterlot pony at heart. Now, I know that we are here to pick up some fabrics for the shop, but Twilight was such a dear to get me that suite at the castle I simply must make her something to express my gratitude. Hmm... [spots an extravagently attired mare] Ooh! An outfit for her birthday party this weekend. Perfect! Don't you just love it here, Opalescence?
Jet Set: Please excuse our interruption. I'm Jet Set, and this is my wife Upper Crust. We saw you from across the café and just had to find out-
Upper Crust: Where did you get that simply marvelous chapeau?
Rarity: This old thing? Oh, it's just something I-
[a drop of water falls on her hat]
Hayseed Turnip Truck: Rarity! Hey Rarity! [the platform he's standing on to wash windows breaks; he falls and dangles by a leg caught in a rope] It's me, Hayseed Turnip Truck! We met at the big hoedown in Ponyville last Fall?
Rarity: Oh, yes, of course. How are you?
Hayseed: Good! Real good!
Jet Set: You're from... Ponyville?
Rarity: Well, ye- yes, but-
Hayseed: She sure is! She's a real big time, fancy pants dressmaker there! Probly made that real purty thing she's got on her head!
Upper Crust: I thought it looked a little country.
Jet Set: I told you it wasn't something you could get here in Canterlot, dear.
Jet Set & Upper Crust: [snort and turn up their noses]
[Rarity is on the verge of crying]
Hayseed: Well, they seem real nice.
Rarity: [sighs]
Back at her suite ~
Rarity: "Looked a little country." "Not something you can get in Canterlot." I'll show you something worthy of Canterlot!
Rarity: [panting as she trots along with many shopping bags] I have to get started right away! This new design is very ambitious, and I've already written to Twilight to let her know she'll have something beyond fabulous to wear to her party. [she slams into a passerby]
[gasp] Fancypants?!
Fancypants: I say, that's one way to make an introduction.
Rarity: Oh goodness. I am so sorry. I- I didn't see you there. I've just got so many bags and I was trying to get back to my suite at the castle and...
Fancypants: You're... staying at the castle?
Rarity: The Princess invited me to stay in one of the suites...
Fancypants: You know the Princess?
Fleur de Lis: Hmm, a pony with expensive tastes, I see.
Rarity: Oh, it's for an ensemble I'm making for a friend. Her birthday is in a few days. Again, I am really sorry I bumped into you.
Fancypants: I'm not! You are obviously somepony worth bumping into. Listen, I have a VIP box reserved at the Wonderbolts Derby this afternoon. Would you... would you be so kind as to join me and a few of my companions there?
Rarity: Me?
Fancypants: But, of course my dear.
Rarity: Well, I'm, uh- ah- n- sure.
Fancypants: We'd love to see you there, uh...
Rarity: Rarity.
Fancypants: Rarity.
Rarity: Pro: Seeing the Derby from a VIP box is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
Con: Going to the Derby cuts into the amount of time I have to finish Twilight's outfit.
Pro: Fancypants is the most important pony in Canterlot. His stamp of approval could mean big things for me here.
Con: Twilight's party might not be as sophisticated as the Derby, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't put all of my energy into creating her birthday ensemble. My Ponyville friends will appreciate my hard work more than anypony. I'd hate to let them down...
And I won't! Opal, I am going to the Wonderbolts Derby as a guest of Fancypants! [laughs and trots in place]
At the derby ~
Rarity: [making her way through the seating to the VIP area] Pardon me. Excuse me, Excuse me!
[Jet Set and Upper Crust give her a disdainful look which turns to one of astonishment as they see her enter the VIP booth with Fancypants]
Fancypants: Rarity! Jolly good to see you! So glad you could make it.
[sophisticated pony banter]
Fancypants: Everypony, this is Rarity. She's staying at Canterlot Castle.
Ponies: [they all gasp and start talking amongst themselves]
Announcer: Fillies and gentlecolts, welcome to the Wonderbolts Derby! The competitors are taking their places at the starting line and the race will begin momentarily!
Fancypants: I'll be rooting for Rapid Fire, of course. He's sure to take home the grand prize.
[the others agree]
Rarity: I don't think he has a chance against Fleetfoot.
[fanfare signaling the commencement of the Derby]
[following a starting whistle they take off in a blur'']
Announcer: And it's Fleetfoot by a nose!
Fancypants: Bravo, Rarity! I say, how did you know Fleetfoot would be victorious?
Rarity: My friend Rainbow Dash talks about her all the time. She says what Fleetfoot lacks in size, she makes up for in speed.
Pony: And who is this "Rainbow Dash?"
Rarity: Uh... Why... she's- she's the- the Wonderbolts'... trainer, of course.
Fancypants: Staying at Canterlot Castle, and she knows the Pegasus training the Wonderbolts. I told you all this was an important pony!
[everpony wholeheartedly agrees]
Fancypants: Three cheers for Rarity, my new favorite party guest!
Ponies: Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray! Hip hip, hooray!
Sometime later, in town ~
Rarity: And then I said, “Please, that isn't a hat, darling. That's a natural disaster that somehow landed atop your head!"
[posh ponies laughing]
Mare: Oh, you are a delight, Rarity! An absolute delight! You simply must attend my art gallery opening this evening. [weird laughing]
Rarity: Oh, I'd love to, but I-
Stallion: Aaaand let's not forget my charity auction tomorrow morning.
Rarity: Well, that sounds wonderful, but I-
Second Mare: And of course there's a seat for you at my dinner party tomorrow night.
Rarity: I'm flattered, really. It's just I have a project I really need to get started on, and-
Mare: Oh, but Rarity! I may as well close down the whole gallery if you can't attend!
Stallion: My auction is for charity, dear. For charityyyyy.
Second Mare: And my dinner party will be a disaster if you don't come!
Rarity: ...of course I'll be there.
Mare: Wonderful!
Second Mare: Disaster averted!
Stallion: Oh, thank... (unintelligible)!
Back at the suite ~
Rarity: Looks like we'll be spending a few more days here, Opalescence. Turns out bumping into Fancypants like that was the best thing that's ever happened to me! Of course, finishing Twilight's dress in time for her birthday party is still my top priority. But I can't possibly disappoint the Canterlot elite by rejecting their invitations now, can I?
[Becoming Popular]
Rarity: Oh, I hope I haven't forgotten anything.
Porter: [straining under a mountain of luggage] Me too...
Rarity: We better get going.
Rarity: I must get back to Ponyville with enough time to finish Twilight's ensemble.
[a letter comes through the slot in the door]
Rarity: For me?
Dearest Rarity,
your presence is requested at the Canterlot garden party tomorrow afternoon.
Jet Set and Upper Crust!
The Canterlot garden party! Why, next to the Galloping Gala that is the premier event in Canterlot! Oh, but if I go I'll miss Twilight's birthday. But if I don't go, my new reputation in Canterlot as a very important pony might be ruined! I might never be invited to another high society event again! [looks to her dress sketch] Friend's birthday, [looks to the letter] very important pony. [turns red as she scrunches her face in deliberation] It's just too important.
[she begins writing a letter]
My Dear Twilight,
I am afraid I won't be able to make it to your birthday party tomorrow, because... because poor Opal is quite ill, and she is in no condition to make the long journey back to Ponyville. I do hope you understand.
Your friend,
Porter: I suppose this means you don't need me to bring down your bags?
Rarity: No. But, I will need some help unpacking them.
Porter: [again collapses under the weight of Rarity's luggage]
Sometime later, in a fancy dress as she prepares for the garden party ~
Rarity: [asking Opal] What do you think, too much?
[Opal begins licking herself]
You're right, too little. [puts on a big hat] Garden party, here I come!
All of her friends: [bursting through the door as she begins walking out] Surprise!
Rarity: [gasps and passes out]
Pinkie Pie: [from Rarity's perspective as she slowly opens her eyes] Swoosh! And right before she hit the ground, Shoom! She- [Rarity finishes regaining consciousness and sits up] Hi, again!
Rarity: What are you- how did y- Why are you...
Applejack: Listen to her. She's so excited to see us she can hardly talk.
Rarity: What I mean to say is, what are you all doing here?
Twilight Sparkle: When I got your letter saying you were stuck in Canterlot, I asked Pinkie Pie if it wouldn't be too much trouble to move my birthday party here so you wouldn't have to miss it!
Pinkie: Balloons are super easy to pack.
[she opens a case of balloons that blow out wildly]
Rarity: Wow. First you get me a suite at Canterlot castle and now this. I don't know what to say. Twilight...
Rainbow Dash: How about you start by saying what you're doing in that fancy get-up?
Rarity: This? Uh, well- I- I always put on something a little fancy when Opal's feeling under the weather, heh, cheers her right up...
Fluttershy: Oh, poor Opal. Where is the sick darling?
Rarity: Oh, uh- she's- hold on a minute.
[she dashes inside and slams the door before anypony else can get in]
The Others: Huh?
[Opal screams as Rarity drags her from the bed]
Rarity: I am so sorry about this.
[Rarity drenches her in the shower as Opal protests. She then puts her back on the bed a dripping mess.]
Rarity: [returning outdoors] She's resting on the bed.
Fluttershy: [flies in and picks up Opal] Poor baby. She looks awful.
Opalescence: [growls at Rarity]
Twilight: [spotting the incomplete piece on the dress horse] Is that my dress?
Rarity: Y-yes.
Twilight: It's so simple, so practical. [Rarity looks nervous] So me! It's the perfect dress for my birthday party! I love it! [hugs Rarity]
Rarity: You don't know how glad I am to hear you say that!
Twilight: When I told the Princess that I was moving the party to Canterlot, she was kind enough to offer us the Canterlot castle ballroom!
Pinkie: Isn't it fancy pants?
Rarity: Fancypants?! Where?! Ah... I mean, uh, where did you find the time to put up all these decorations? Ha ha. [nervous squee]
Pinkie: Oh, I never leave home without my party cannon!
[pulls a cannon out of nowhere which shoots party decorations, which land perfectly in place upon a table and covers Rarity in confetti]
Pinkie: Ta-da!
Twilight: I thought about having my birthday outside, but they're having another party on the castle grounds today. [Rarity looks out the window with Twilight, then dashes to cover so as not to be spotted by the sophisticated ponies outside]
Pinkie: [slowly rises up next to Rarity] Leeeet's party!
[festive music begins and they start dancing and eating cake]
Rarity: [looking out the window] Hmm. No reason I can't at least make an appearance. [runs outside when the others are distracted]
I'm here!
Upper Crust: Darling, I'm so glad you made it.
Fancypants: Rarity! So happy to see you here!
Rarity: I wouldn't have missed this for the world!
Fancypants: [sniffing] I say, what is that scent you're wearing? It smells like- [more sniffing] is that... cake frosting?
Rarity: Yes, I always dab a little frosting behind my ears before I go out... [nervous laughter] After all, who doesn't like the smell of cake frosting?
Fancypants: I know I do.
Upper Crust: Mm hm.
Rarity: Well, all this talk about cake has made me hungry. Think I'll go and see what's on the hors d'oeuvre table. If you'll excuse me.
Fancypants & Upper Crust: [begin a pompous discussion]
[Rarity starts splitting her time between the two parties when their respective attendees are distracted]
Rarity: [to Fancypants] I think I left the bathwater running in my suite.
Rarity: [to Twilight] I really should go check on Opal...
Rarity:[to all the fancy ponies] Is that Princess Celestia?!
Rarity: [whispering to Twilight] I need to use the little fillies' room!
Rarity: [to the fancy ponies] Can I get anypony more punch?
Rarity: I- have to go to do the- thing with the... stuff... you know?
Rainbow: Uh, what's with the croquet mallet?
Rarity: [with a mallet in her mouth] What croquet mallet?
Rainbow: Duh! The one in your mouth?
Rarity: [drops it; nervous laughter] Oh, that croquet mallet! I- well I- you know- The truth is... the truth is-
Twilight: Were you at that other party in the garden?!
Rarity: I- I--- Uh-
Twilight: Rarity! I'm surprised at you!
Rarity: Twilight, let me explain! I-
Twilight: I hadn't realized you were such a savvy businesspony!
Rarity: You must understand, I-
Twilight: All of those ponies look so posh. And with the Grand Galloping Gala coming up, I bet you could totally get some of them to buy your dresses. Veeeery smart!
Rarity: W- Wwwhy yes, I- I didn't want you to think I was being rude, so that's exactly the reason I didn't tell you. The- one and only reason.
Twilight: Oh, well you didn't have to do that! You should totally go over there and mingle!
Rarity: Twilight. You really are the best friend a pony could ever ask for. I don't know why I ever thought you wouldn't understand.
Twilight: Understand what?
Rarity: Nothing.
See you girls later!
Rainbow: Hey, wait up! We're your friends! I'm sure they won't mind if we check out the party too! C'mon you guys! Let's show them how to party Ponyville style!
Rarity: Oh, no!
[Pinkie fires the party cannon]
[Rainbow accidentally throws a croquet mallet, taking off a female partygoer's wig]
[Fluttershy is sitting in a tree with birds making much noise]
Pinkie: [shoves her face in a cake]
Applejack: [pulling weeds and getting her hooves muddy] How come y'all aren't doing any gardening? This is a garden party, isn't it?!
[Twilight dances weirdly]
[Rarity downs a glass of punch in one draw]
Jet Set: Can you believe what that pony is wearing? [indicating Twilight]
Upper Crust: It's just so plain.
Rarity: Heh heh... Yeah.
Fancypants: Excuse me. Might I ask where you got your ensemble?
Twilight: Why, yes. Yes, you may. A very, very close friend of mine from Ponyville made it for me.
Rarity: [spews punch all over Jet Set and Upper Crust]
Fancypants: Ponyville? You don't say?
Twilight: I do say! Her name is-
Rarity: Fancypants! Come with me! I'd like to show you this, uh, thing... that's over there. O- On the other side of the room.
Fancypants: In a moment, my dear. This lovely filly from Ponyville was just about to tell me who made her charming dress.
Rarity: That dress? Oh come now, who cares, it's just a plain, old-
Twilight: Oh, don't be so modest. This dress you made is beautiful!
[everypony gasps and one drops his drink]
Twilight: We all think so! [the others walk up beside Twilight]
Fancypants: You know these ponies?
[the other guests start gossiping]
Rarity: Yes. Yes, I do know them. They may not be as sophisticated as some of you Canterlot ponies, but they are my best friends. And they are without a doubt, the most important ponies I know.
Jet Set: Important ponies? These ruffians?
Upper Crust: Don't make me laugh!
Jet Set & Upper Crust: [arrogant laughing]
Fancypants: I, for one, find them charmingly rustic.
[the laughing ceases]
Fancypants: And I think the dress you made for your friend is lovely. I dare say every mare in Canterlot will be wanting one!
Upper Crust: Ooh! I'd like to place my order right now.
Jet Set: I think you should get two.
Fancypants: Eh, yes. Now then. How about you introduce me to your friends?
Rarity: With pleasure!
Rarity: [writing a letter] Dear Princess Celestia, I wanted to tell you about the important lesson I learned during my visit.
Princess Celestia: [approaching from behind] Now that, I would like to hear.
Rarity: I learned that no matter where you go in life, you should never forget that you are the product of your home and your friends. And that is something always to be proud of, no matter what.
Princess Celestia: A very valuable lesson to have learned.
Porter: It certainly is! But, might I ask that we hurry things up a bit?! [collapses again under Rarity's luggage as Rarity and Celestia exchange nervous smiles]
