This thread is meant for discussing impressions on this week's episode, On the Road to Friendship, during and after it airs.

Be mindful of saying spoilers before they show up on TV.

Finally, we can talk about the road trip episode.

What's the female equivalent of bromance?

guess i will re-write what i think about this episode

anyway i saw this episode a week or so ago

breddy good

it just goes to show you that despite being friends you can only deal with each other for so long and then shit hits the fan

i know that feeling i can only deal with friends for so long before i cant stomach their behavior anymore

but still in the end remain friends just uhhhh with the realization you cant be around each other all the time

that there is a lesson to be learned

you tell celestia the lesson you learned starlight!

better than I was expecting, being a starlight hater.

Trixie was in real rare form, and we need more of her-- she was 90% of why this episode was good, and DAMNED was she adorable XD (her jumping in front of the cart and refusing to move was pure kino).

Kind of wish the episode had ended with them going back and putting on a proper performance, but eh.

7/10.

Seriously though! I haven't enjoyed an episode as much as that since the royal wedding!

I smiled and laughed out loud through basically the whole thing, and that's really rear for me to do, even when i like something.

Whoever wrote this had DEF been on a trip with someone who doesn't travel often, because the situations were dead accurate. And while I get where starlight was coming from... she was wrong about everything haha, but thats how everyone who comes on a trip with me acts so it was perfect :D

Also, this absolutely without a doubt solidified Trixie as, maybe not the best, but defiantly my favorite pony. The budgeting, the traveling, the hammock, the attachment to random old things that don't work quite right but they are ̶m̶i̶n̶e̶ *hers. The talking about how stupid singing a song is then right away singing a song. The stubbornness and logical behavior. Seriously, im kinda creeped out by it.
One of my favorite "FEW!" moments in life is every time they write Trixie so well, I was seriously worried when she became more than just a "once in a while" character.
I think when my old room mate sees this, he is going to get the same kick out of it I did

"best friends who share a deep bond but weren't prepared for the emotional challenges of traveling" LMAO.

THEY EVEN SANG THE SAME DAMN SONG I SING WHEN IM HEADING HOME FROM SOMEWHERE.
(well kinda... it was clearly a homage to "On the road to Rhode Island" haha)

Wow, i could literally talk all night about the little details and awesomeness in this episode.

I think it made me decide not to sell my old car after all, that car took me across the country a few times and it still runs pretty strong.

Perfect timing too, because I was really depressed this weekend, and that was such an incredible pick-me-up.

I was hype, and my expectations were FAR exceeded!

Edits:
I've had the song on repeate for a while now, and THAT hasnt happened since S2. Also, I dont mean to say Starlight wasnt amazing in this episode because she defiantly was.

I also realized that this entire episode is about me and my friend who i went on the week camping trip with over the summer. I wish he didn't hate MLP ... i might send him the song anyway haha.

I suppose now we know why Starlight and Trixie haven't made their relationship official yet. Spending extended amounts of time together or, heaven forbid, living together would be a nightmare for both of them! ;P

I hope they get a spin off. Like a late night spin off haha. I know its not really a reasonable hope, but its still my hope.

Just saw this episode. It was pretty awesome.

The Great and Powerful Trixie doesn't chant. ♥

Every time Trixie said something about her wagon, I wanted it to flash cut to the Ursa Major stomping on her old one, again, and again, and again. Every sentence. Wham. "It is shelter." Wham. " It is transportation." Wham. "It is my only friend on the lo" Wham "ng and lonely" Wham "nights on the road." ... ... Wham. Wham. Wham.

Seeing Starlight Glimmer returning to her old pattern of simultaneously well intended and despicably evil was interesting. I don't think I've ever met a more endearing and sympathetic psychopath in fiction or reality.

...

SHES NOT YOUR BUDDY GUY

I felt a strange mix of sympathy and envy for Starlight, when heart songs had actual plot significance, and she even was confronted by it, without being able to understand how she didn't notice the fire swamp before, when travelling together with her friend. Equestria truly must be a strange and wonderful place to live in.

I don't think psychologists use that term anymore. DSM-5 doesn't use it anymore at least. But then, that book tries to classify caffeine withdrawal as a disorder.
