Sounds fun

Oh come on, Rainbow Dash. It's not that hard taking care of elderly people/ponies.

Herrpface #4 · 1 week ago · · 1 ·

...I do not look forward to the interpretations the fandom will have towards Granny Smith's "cranky flank cream."

Don't let them out of your s i g h t . . . .

Okay, I think I know the ending: Rainbow ends up having a blast even without going on the ride.

EDIT: Okay, guess I was wrong. But hey, if someone wants to write this ending, knock yourself out.

TRIXIE RELATIVE

TRIXIE RELATIVE

Not even My Little Pony can escape the 'horny granny' trope.

Nice to see Flim and Flam are doing a good job with Las Pegasus.

That poor bellhop is scarred for life.

"So gross."

I have to agree with you, RD.

Does anyone else feel like this episode is punishing RD for something she didn't do? Because that's how I see things.

My reactions:

Hmm.... not 100% sure about this one, the premise sounds a little mundane... but I'll still check it out.

Spitfire playing chess on a rollercoaster? EXTREME!!

Pouty Dash face! SO CUTE!!

AJ is trolling RD, I just know it.

Why do I get the feeling the moral is gonna be that "old people are awesome"?

How many cats does that mare need!?

Huh, the Flimflam bros redesigned the place...

GAH!! CREEPY GRANNY FLIRTING!!! NO, NO,NO, A MILLION TIMES NO!!! EEEEWWWWW!!

"Apple Saucy"!? UUUUIUUGGGGGHHHH!

Yep, long-ass lines, I think we've ALL been there...

So, when they hurl horseshoes, do they take off their own or....?

Okay, ghostly Applejack is getting annoying....

DJPON3! YAY!

Granny doing the moonwalk... that's just amusing.

....is that Trixie's dad!?

EEEEWWWWW!! STOP. FLIRTING. IT'S GROSS!!

A small part of me can't help but Wonder why Rainbow Dash is so desperate to ride a rollercoaster, she flies fast enough to break the sound barrier without even trying. After being capable of doing that... can a roller coaster really compare that well?

Is there no backstage security here? Did the Flimflam bros skip out on that...

Yep, DEFINITELY Trixie's dad.

So... they're VIP members? GEE, THANKS FOR MENTIONING THAT AJ!

Huh, I was right, it was the "old people are cool" moral.

Welp, this was an... decent episode, kind of predictable, but nothing bad in my opinion. I give it a 4.5 out of 10.

Oh my goodness...

Possible Golden Girls references?

Rick Sanchez pony?

Trixie's dad!? (Possibly)

Not to mention Imaginary Applejack was so hilarious :rainbowlaugh: This season's doing well thus far.

4839948
Most DEFINITELY Golden Girls reference. Golden Horseshoe Gals?

This might strike a couple memories...

4839949
Thank you for being a friend. . . .

I'm still recovering from my mind being blown by the xkcd reference in the opening, to say nothing of this bordering on a Golden Girls crossover of all things.

At least RD got to ride the Wild Blue Yonder. :rainbowdetermined2:

Trixie's Dad headcanon accepted. Pretty solid 6/10 episode with a very attractive background. Who else was totally feeling it when RD got grossed out by Granny Apple getting her mack on?

4839956
PART OF MY SOUL JUST DIED! :pinkiesick:

reads title
sweats nervously

Moral: Don't listen to Applejack.

Does anypony here remember Betty White's Off Their Rockers? No? Okay.

https://youtu.be/U3ElVrQPiks

I loved this episode. Dash may have been overbearing at times, but that's hardly out-of-character. It's a shame they didn't get Betty White to guest voice this episode, as that would have been perfect.
Overall a really fun episode. All the little background events that I'm going to have to re-watch to see were great as well.
And MLP's reference game continues to be on point!

4839949 Not to mention 'Apple Saucy' :rainbowlaugh:

4839974 I didn't even notice Walter White pony, at first :rainbowderp:

I spotted a cougar in the crowd of ponies.

4839998
Nice avatar, you have good taste in shows.

4839974
Is it bad that I noticed Walter White before Rick and Morty?

by far the most poor title choice of any episode. :rainbowlaugh:

Snuffy #30 · 1 week ago · · 1 ·

I'd love to see an episode where the M6 goes to Las Pegasus and cuts loose with a wild, girls night out. I can totally see Rarity flirting with the bellman with a bit in her mouth.

4840033
The first TV-MA rated episode maybe?

4839971
"I dunno, Rick, is it really a good idea to go to a dimension populated by ponies just to ride a roller coaster?"
"We gotta go on this roller coaster before it closes, Morty. It's the best roller coaster in the multiverse now. I'm not going to have you miss out on the Whirly Dirly AND the Wild Blue Yonder."
"What happened to the Whirly Dirly, Rick?"
"Ask Jerry."

4840017 4840035
yep, and he even has a blue crystal for a cutie mark. Crystal meth in Equestria confirmed

I would have equated Applesauce with Sophia prior to the episode as she's the eldest, but after seeing it, she was channeling Rue McClanahan's ghost the entire time.

4840046
There will be low impact consensual nuzzling in the late hours, yes.

4839947

....is that Trixie's dad!?

I think so too, if not he must be at least related. He even works as magician.

Rick and Morty are canon in MLP

too much granny smith
*skips episode*

Again, Rainbow Dash's weird crippling inability to communicate with others in a straightforward and sensible manner results in whacky hijinx. I know people not communicating with each other is a common thing in sitcoms to make silly frustration and misunderstandings happen, but with Rainbow Dash it's almost like she doesn't even know how to use the English language. Just about everything that goes wrong in her life can be immediately solved with honest and open communication, but she always tries to sneak around and never say anything.

Some people complain about Fluttershy never learning to overcome her crippling personality flaw. I'd say Rainbow Dash is the real culprit at this point.

Also this is probably the first time I can think of that Applejack comes off as a bit of a dick. Usually when she does conflict with other ponies she's in the right, and is too stubborn to acknowledge that others don't see things the way she does ("Look Before You Sleep" and "Fallweather Friends" for example), here she straight up sets Rainbow Dash up for stupidity with vague warnings and roping her into something she's completely unprepared for anyway.

Also we have confirmation, it would seem, that 1 moon = 1 year. It's been suspected for a long time, but we finally have it pretty much confirmed.

And yeah, overall I didn't like it much, but I didn't hate it as much as some previous episodes. It had its cute moments, but most of it was "hilarious misunderstanding-fueled hijinx" and "old people are funny" jokes. Probably won't watch it much in the future.

Playing chess on a roller coaster is fun and all, but I laughed out loud at the three pictures of pies tacked up on the bulletin board.

I appreciate Applejack's consistent characterization from "Somepony to Watch Over Me," but it left the episode kind of unfocused at the end. I think the implication was that Rainbow Dash didn't need to do any of the things that Applejack told her to do (that the grannies can handle themselves in Las Pegasus just fine), but it felt a little strange to be betrayed by the entire premise of the episode.

And has Rainbow Dash never seen a successful magic show before? She knows that the magicians weren't actually going to drown four ponies in front of a room full of witnesses, right? Now I'm picturing Trixie's shows often ending with a pile of dead volunteers.

Barring the awful title, the episode is mostly fine. Watching Rainbow sabotage the elder's fun got old quick (no pun intended).

I did like seeing Las Pegasus again, and the "cranky flank cream" line made me laugh.

4840091

Trixie DID once launch herself into a Manticore's stomach with no plan of escape.

I guess not thinking things through is just a family trait.

tfw u realize this was entirely ajs fault and the whole mess could have been avoided

LMFAO THAT TITLE

4840061
I was thinking the same thing he does the throw a smoke bomb and run Trick like Trixie q

Tfw Trixie's Dad flirts with Applejack's Granny :rainbowderp: Very fun episode!

Maran #49 · 1 week ago · · ·

Another ok episode in an ok season, at least so far. I find it odd that the season opener set up the school and the group of world-building characters, only to shove the school into the background where it barely interferes with the lives of the Mane 6.

Having said that, it was nice to see the elderly Apple mares again, and imaginary Applejack was hilarious. Aside from the inappropriate flirting, this was a solid entry to the series.

I thought it was a great episode. It just shows that old people know how to have a great time. Although I like that the announcer pony with the moustache sounds a lot like the Youtuber Jasper Pie.
