Silver Spoon: [to Apple Bloom and Twist] See you this weekend...
Apple Bloom: You sir! Care to buy some apples?
Dr. Hooves: Uh... No thanks.
Apple Bloom: Why not?
Dr. Hooves: I have plenty at home...
Apple Bloom: Are you sure?
Dr. Hooves: [getting scared] I'm pretty sure.
Apple Bloom: [backs him up against a cart] You're pretty sure, but you're not absolutely, positively, completely, super-duper sure, are you?
Dr. Hooves: Uh... If I buy some apples, will you please leave me alone?
Apple Bloom: All right!
Apple Bloom: [Berry Punch is quietly looking at some of Applejack's apples; Apple Bloom suddenly gets right in her face, causing Berry to back up in fear on her hindquarters] You touch it, you buy it!
Apple Bloom: We take cash or credit...
[Berry zips away out of sight]
Applejack: [shouting after her] I'm sorry ma'am. Ma'am! Aww... Now Apple Bloom, you can't just...
Apple Bloom: [Apple Bloom purposefully dumps a bunch of apples in Bon Bon's bag while she isn't looking] That'll be four bits.
Bon Bon: I didn't put those in my bag!
Apple Bloom: [acting upset] Likely story. Four bits, lady!
Applejack: Apple Bloom!
[Applejack stuffs her hoof in Apple Bloom's mouth, and addresses Bon Bon]
Applejack: I am really, really sorry about that... she's new.
Rainbow Dash: What's the matter, kid?
Apple Bloom: There's a cute-ceañera this afternoon and everypony in my class will be there and they'll all have their cutie marks and I wanna get my cutie mark but I'm no good at selling apples but I really wanna go to the party but how can I go to the party if I don't have my cutie mark which my big sister says I'm gonna get eventually but... I WANT IT NOOOOW!
Scootaloo: I said, you got a problem with blank flanks?
Silver Spoon: The problem is, I mean, she's like, totally not special.
Sweetie Belle: No, it means she's full of potential.
Scootaloo: It means she could be great at anything. The possibilities are, like, *endless*.
Sweetie Belle: She could be a great scientist, or an amazing artist, or a famous writer, she could even be mayor of Ponyville some day...
Scootaloo: ...*and* she's not stuck being *stuck-up* like you two.
Apple Bloom: You don't have any cutie marks *either*? I thought I was the only one!
Scootaloo: We thought we were the only two...
Twilight Sparkle: I, for one, think you are *three* very lucky fillies...
Diamond Tiara: Hey! What's everypony doing? This is *my* party! Everypony supposed to be paying attention to *me*!
Silver Spoon: [to Apple Bloom and her friends] Well, we still think you're losers, right Diamond Tiara? Bump! Bump! Sugar Lump...?
Diamond Tiara: Not now, Silver Spoon!
Scootaloo: What do you say we celebrate with these delicious cupcakes?
Apple Bloom: [stops her] Not the cupcakes! Trust me...
Cheerilee: Let's quiet down please. We have a very important lesson to get to.
[class quiets down]
Cheerilee: Thank you. Today we are going to be talking about cutie marks.
Diamond Tiara: Bo-ring
Cheerilee: You can all see my cutie mark, can't you? Like all ponies, I wasn't born with a cutie mark. My flank was blank.
[Cheerilee shows a picture of herself as a filly]
Twist: Aww...! She's so precious!
Cheerilee: Then one day, when l was about your age, I woke up to find that a cutie mark had appeared.
[Cheerilee shows a picture of herself as a "teenager" in 1980s-style clothing and hairstyle]
Silver Spoon: Look at her hair!
Cheerilee: Yes l know, but honestly, that's how everypony was wearing their mane back then. l had decided to become a teacher, and the flowers symbolized my hope that I could help my future students bloom if l nurture them with knowledge. The smiles represented the cheer l hope to bring to my little ponies while they were learning. Now, can anyone tell me when a pony gets his or her cutie mark?
Twist: Oh! Oh! Oh! When she discovers that certain something that makes her special!
Cheerilee: That's right, Twist. A cutie mark appears on a pony's flank when he or she finds that certain something that makes them different from every other pony. Discovering what makes you unique isn't something that happens overnight, and no amount of hoping, wishing, or begging, would make a cutie mark appear before its time.
Apple Bloom: I can't believe I didn't think of this. A cupcake-eating cutie mark, it's *sooo* obvious. Now, where are those cupcakes? I'm ready t' chow down!
Pinkie Pie: I don't have any cupcakes.
Apple Bloom: Oh.
Pinkie Pie: [gasp] But you look like you'd be good at helping me *make* some!
Apple Bloom: I guess, uh, "making-cupcakes" cutie mark could work too.
Pinkie Pie: [singing] All you have to do is take a cup of flour, add it to the mix/Now just take a little something sweet, not sour, a bit of salt, just a pinch/Baking these treats is such a cinch, add a teaspoon of vanilla/Add a little more, and you count to four, and you never get your fill-a!/Cupcakes - so sweet and tasty/Cupcakes - don't be too hasty/Cupcakes - cupcakes, cupcakes, CUPCAKES!
Twilight Sparkle: [narrating the letter she will write] Dearest Princess Celestia: I am happy to report that one of your youngest subjects has learned a valuable lesson about friendship. Sometimes, the thing you think will cause you to lose friends and feel left out...
Princess Celestia: [reading the letter as it is received] "... can actually be the thing that helps you make your closest friends and realize how special you are." Hmm...
