Quotes

Starlight Glimmer: [as the villagers start to accommodate the Mane 6 and she walks off] Well, this will certainly provide a boost to our little community. When the rest of Equestria finds out that a *Princess* gave up her cutie mark to join us, they'll finally understand what we're trying to accomplish.

A Great Opening to Season 5

This episode did a great job of setting up the stage for Part 2. The town's twisted view on friendship and freedom and individuality is established very well. Got me very excited for Part 2 and it easily, for me at least, is the best season opener of the series. All of the bronies who were speculating whether or not this was an anti-communist episode... I think your speculations are confirmed... even if it wasn't intentional, the episode puts a lot of emphasis on the individuality, personal responsibility-esque values that we should all hold dear to ourselves. This might be my favorite family-oriented show simply because it's not afraid to have a message like this. Love it.
