Good episode. Not Celestia-tier for me, but high/good tier. The first part was pretty meh, but when Pinkie started to doubt and then got insane, it was great.

What I like is how the show presents the morals in a creative and original manner, whether they are cliche or not.

For example, countless times I have seen cartoons have the person who is being avoided start doing whatever they can for attention or start hanging out with the wrong crowd with minimal effort to try and figure out an actual REASON for why her friends are avoiding her.

In this episodes I noticed a quite a few of what are, in my opinion, cliche-breakers. First of all, when Applejack first semi-lies(It's not a complete lie if you think about it) to Pinkie you can tell by pinkies expression that she is probably thinking, "If AJ really had to pick apples, why would she be so awkward about it, is she lying to me...? Nah, she's my friend and I've never seen her lie before so why would she now?"

Also, when she is trying to figure out why her friends lied to her she also breaks cliche. Although she may start off by doing the classic solid snake spying approach, thing get interesting when she tries to assault Rainbow Dash and interrogates Spike before finally going completely batshit insane. I have not ONCE a character handle the avoidance as aggressively as Pinkie Pie did.

Finally, although they're kind of small, I was genuinely taken by surprise when Rainbow Dash did it the "hard" way and when Pinkie Pie thought the surprise party was a going away party.

Now, I haven't seen every rendition of this plot but most of these My Little Pony episodes have been a new experience for me, something I haven't felt in a while.

I too was hoping for the "just because we can't hang out today~" lesson as well. But there wouldn't have been as much of a payoff ender, I suppose, so no sell. Pinkie Pie's antics were entertaining, but if I were a pony, I... huh. I wonder how many parties/month Pinkie throws? I'm sure my quota would be met quickly by her -_- .


In any case, here's to looking forward for the end of the season. Bring it!

This ep was pretty funny but also kind of... dark if you think about it too much.

Pinkie Pie has emotional issues but nobody really seems to get that. I noticed a lot of people complaining that the Aesop here wasn't something like "even your best friends need some alone time." Even if that WAS the moral, that's... still sort of placing the blame unfairly on Pinkie. She was freaking out because they were lying to here, not because they didn't want to party.

So... even at that, I don't think it was about Pinkie having abandonment issues, but trust issues, meaning a "your friends are all partied out, bro" ending might not've really worked.

Also RD was the only one that really saw her break down. I mean AJ sort of did, but... not AS much. IDK I feel like they're going somewhere with this.


tl;dr season 2 is totally going to be Chekhovian as fuck.

You got that right. I've had clients that've acted the way Pinkie did moments before becoming violent. It's terrifying.

Pinkie has creeped me out since ep 1, but this kind of solidifies my 'oh god keep it away' feeling towards her now. :( Sorry, bronies. I love the rest of the cast, but Psycho Pie is just too much.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 26106

Q. AJ's element is honesty and she's basically been lying constantly since like forever about basically everything. Pinkie's element is laughter and it's becoming rapidly apparent that she's secretly depressed under her bubbly exterior. etcetcetc

What I guess I'm asking is how long till Fluttershy wigs the hell out and just kills everyone?

Okay so I just finished watching the ep. again. And while it is a well done episode I find it even more disturbing than I did the first time through.

I mean pinkie is completely nuts and her friends don't really appreciate just what sort of help she needs. I have a bad feeling about Pinkie.

Country code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 26114

>>26106

Actually, I've already noticed that Fluttershy is rather passive-aggressive. She makes a demand and then does that bashful, "if you don't mind" thing. It could be seen as a form of emotionally manipulating people to get what she wants.

And if that routine doesn't work, she has a habit of following it up with a staredown.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 26115

Thought:

Friends actually were avoiding Pinkie Pie because they just needed some alone time. All the stuff with a surprise party was just something Pinkie Pie started hallucinating to cope with her abandonment issues.

I didn't think AJ was lying, per se.
She "claimed" that she had apples to take care of, and all those apples with her at that second was a convenient cover.

The barn scene, she was saying they were doing "construction" or "renovated", and by the time of the party, everything was renovated.
So there you go. She never did lie. Honesty intact!

Can some kind soul please, please try to transcribe me some of the lines from the last episode? Here are the ones that are giving me a hard time:

- When Pinkie sings at the beginning, the verse "There will be games and dancing, bob for apples, (????)"
- When Pinkie is having her... ahem... "party", madame Leflour's line (ends with "Slice of cake", I can't make out what the hay she says before that).

I'm going to be honest, the last two episodes have been depressing. They weren't upbeat at all. It was as though a tragedy turned into a happy ending so fast that I still have a bad taste in my mouth.

Out of all the HD MLP episodes i've bought (almost all of them) this and the last one are the only ones I truly regret buying. If i had known they would be this sad i would've waited the extra day or so and watched them on youtube.

I can't seem to find the post, but someone mentioned that Spike says he took a seven hour bubble bath YESTERDAY, when Rarity suggested he take a bath earlier that same day.

The explanation is simple: Spike took a seven hour bubble bath the day before because he wanted to look good for Rarity the next day.

Pinky Pie is really going downhill as a character. Back in "Griffon the Brush off" she had a little character depth--- she was compassionate, had moments of uncertainty, etc. But since then, and especially starting in "A bird in the hoof" she's been written as rude, greedy, inconsiderate, ill-mannered..... and in this episode, obsessive, demanding, and scary-as-hell, jekyll-and-hyde mentally unstable.

Lately, she's been irritating. A character who does nothing but throw parties? For everything? "Birthday party for my pet," okay, cute--- "day-after birthday party for my pet party"--- okay, clear into creepytown.

Even the party itself was unsettling. Booby trapping the apple-bobbing bucket... knocking people off the dancefloor... plying people with punch from a bowl with a gator in it....

Then when her invitations aren't accepted she doesn't get sad... she gets cranky, suspicious, downright angry. Huh? One off-the-cuff party doesn't go off, and she goes ballistic?

The "pretend party" scene could have made it better-- if Pinky Pie had been sad, and obviously pretending to try and buck herself up, it would have made her sympathetic.... instead all her manic twitches and eye-spazzes made it worse. She came across as a spastic lunatic--- one with a monomaniacal obsession with birthday parties--- who had finally snapped.

The fact that the rest of the mane cast acted like they were SCARED of her, rather than acting like they were GUILTY and HIDING something from her, made it worse.

In fact the whole episode made it seem like the others were planning a party for her less out of friendship and more out of fear that she'd wish them all into the cornfield!

I see it more as her being childish and clueless.
I have a feeling that she's so inside of her own little world, she has almost no idea how her behaviour is taken by her friends and the people around her in general.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 26134

>>26132
Personally I wouldn't think that much of how she acted in "A Bird in the Hoof" (all the characters except for Fluttershy and Twilight pretty much just made an appearance to be silly or humorous, like aside from pinkie, rarity).

Moving onto this episode I don't think her wanting to throw Gummy another party right after was necessarily creepy, just more along the lines of silly.

Her entire flip out though I see as insecurity and I find that even more plausible by both how readily she jumped to the conclusion that her friends don't like her parties = not liking her... and her stalking of them. Actually the stalking and nosiness isn't so weird because I've known women that act like that, they get jealous or suspicious or just need to pry their nose if they feel left out of something.

But it seems that, despite being outgoing, she's really not good with people/other ponies. Parties are her thing, that's what she knew. She doesn't have much else to give people... or even worse she doesn't REALIZE she has much else to give people. If you're doing something that has brought you happiness and friends and you've convinced yourself that's essential to why they're friends with you, the thought of them not liking whatever it is you're doing in turn would mean they don't like you as well.

And... then she snapped. Why? Probably because it was funnier to write and animate then having a sad pony mope about for 5-6 minutes on screen. But if you want to take that as a character trait it's because she became bitter. She can't see what else she has to give her friends (if she does, anything) and she only thinks people like her for one thing. So she resorts to trying to rebuild and reinforce that one aspect of herself she does know people like about her. There's still a ton of ugliness in that but I could find reasoning to understand and sympathize with her situation to an extent.

I just read way too much into a pink pony flipping out because she forgot her own birthday.

Because her dramatic bemoaning of her fate and indulgence in wallowing self-pity are funnier still.

I think I love Pinkie even more after this episode. While a lot of people were creeped out by her behavior, my heart went out to her. The poor thing can't tolerate being alone.

Also, two words: Ponies. Dancing.
<=====<

One more thing. I think Pinkie's voice actress, Andrea Libman, deserves special praise for her work on this episode. Her various voices and accents during Pinkie's breakdown were hilarious.
