The Science of Magic

The Rainbooms: [conversing] Huh?
Rainbow Dash: Uh, I thought we were rehearsing.
Sunset Shimmer: Well, you are. Sort of. Back when I was Princess Celestia's student, I learned best by going out into the field and actually doing something. Studying ancient books is fine for some people, but I like to solve magical mysteries by rolling up my sleeves and getting my hooves... uh, hands dirty.
[glove snaps]
Applejack: I can relate to workin' hard outdoors, but what the hay does that have to do with us playin' music?
Sunset Shimmer: I'm trying to figure out how magic works here. Why you grow ears, tails, and wings when you pony up and what your instruments have to do with it.
Fluttershy: Um, are you sure we need to figure it out?
Sunset Shimmer: It'll be fun. Just start playing. You won't even know I'm here.

[drum solo]
[Background singers]
Bah, bah, bah-da, bah, bah, bup, bah
Bah, bah, bah-da, bah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
[electricity crackle]
Sunset Shimmer: Finally, after all this testing, I've come to a definitive conclusion! [electricity crackles] [coughs] I have no idea how magic works in this world. [groans]

Pinkie Spy

[whistle blows]
Rainbow Dash: Crystal Prep High School. The competition!
Pinkie Pie: Hey, Rainbow!
Rainbow Dash: Gah! What are you doing?
Pinkie Pie: You said we needed to be sneaky while we check out the competition for the Friendship Games. Wanna see what else I have? Cat burglar! Dog burglar! Tree! Bunny suit! Camouflage!
Rainbow Dash: That's, like, the opposite of camouflage! Quick! Get down!
[whistle blowing faintly]
Rainbow Dash: We need to get a better view!
[balloons inflating]
Pinkie Pie: Best view in the house!
[whistle blows]
[balloons popping]
[whistle blows]
[balloon deflates]
Pinkie Pie: [sniffing] You smell like vanilla.
Rainbow Dash: We're trying to eavesdrop! That means they don't hear us!
Pinkie Pie: Ooh! I have just the thing!
Crystal Prep Student: [panting]
Rainbow Dash: What are you doing?! We're trying to spy on them! Do you even know what the word "spy" means? It means being sneaky! It means not being seen! It means BEING QUIET!
Pinkie Pie: Bush to Dash. Code red. You have been spotted. Run!

Photo Finish: Hold that pose! Ja, ja! You have the authority! Sign the waiver! [indistinct]
Vice Principal Luna: Hold on! What the—?! [screams]

A Banner Day

Vice Principal Luna: I'm sure you'll come up with the perfect sign that lets the Crystal Prep kids feel welcome but also conveys that we are stiff competition.
Micro Chips: One hundred percent!
Flash Sentry: Oh, yeah, sure!
Sandalwood: Totally.
Vice Principal Luna: I'll be back in an hour to see what you've come up with.
Flash Sentry: I got it! We should decorate it with the sheet music to my song "Love in a Flash". It'll show them we're talented while welcoming them in with the universal language of music.
Micro Chips: I was thinking we could paint a model of DNA. It shows that we're smart but invites them in with the very fiber of our being.
Sandalwood: But what we should do is portray peace through art. One love, bros.
[guitar music]
[techno music]
[new-age music]
Sandalwood: Dude!
Micro Chips: [gasps] What did you do?!
Flash Sentry: Watch the hair, man!
Sandalwood: You're harshing the flow!
Micro Chips: Hey, you did that on purpose! [gasps] My friendship algorithm!
Flash Sentry: Hey! You just projectile-scienced all over my chorus!
Micro Chips: Well, you guys painted all over my molecular structures!
Sandalwood: And how am I supposed to paint my spirit guide when there's DNA and a treble clef in the way?
Flash Sentry: Oh, I don't know! Ask your spirit guide!
All: You're ruining my design!
Vice Principal Luna: [clears throat] My, oh, my.
Micro Chips: We're really—
Vice Principal Luna: Proud of yourselves, I hope. This is wonderful!
Flash Sentry: It is?
Vice Principal Luna: It's inspiring but still warm and welcoming. I love how your work is literally enmeshed. Truly excellent work, boys.
Flash Sentry: Uh, thank you! This is just what happens when you allow love to lead the way.
Micro Chips: With song.
Sandalwood: Through the self-replicating material present in nearly all living organisms.
Vice Principal Luna: [chuckles] That's great to hear. Now just add "Welcome Crystal Prep", and I'd like to see five more by the end of the day. Thanks, boys!
