Get your muzzle out of those books and make some friends! That's what Princess Celestia tells Twilight Sparkle. She may be the smartest unicorn in Equestria, but Twilight Sparkle needs more friendship. There's more to life than learning magic, so she goes to Ponyville on a mission to make friends.
|Season 5 / Episode 2: - The Cutie Markless Part 2|
Twilight Sparkle: And you wouldn't just let me stay here in the village with my old cutie mark?
Starlight Glimmer: Out of the question. A pony with a different cutie mark would destroy our entire philosophy. We are all equal here! [the villagers murmur happily]
Fluttershy: [offscreen] Then how do you explain *this*? [camera zooms out as she throws water from a bucket towards Starlight Glimmer, she quickly moves out of the way and it splashes to the ground, a small bit of the water touching her flank]
Starlight Glimmer: I knew you couldn't be trusted! [the water reveals something blue under her equal sign cutie mark, Party Favor gets a cloth and wipes it] No, get away! [the villagers see her actual cutie mark underneath, they all gasp, she realizes that as well and quickly moves her tail over it] What are you looking at? They're the problem, not me! [Smiles nervously]
Party Favor: How... could you?
Double Diamond: You said cutie marks were evil! You said special talents led to pain and heartache!
Starlight Glimmer: They do! Don't you see? Look at them!
Sugar Belle: Then why? Why did you take ours and not give up your own?
Starlight Glimmer: I... I had to, you fools! How could I collect your cutie marks without my magic?
Night Glider: But the staff has all the magic we need!
Starlight Glimmer: The staff is a piece of wood I found in the desert, you'd still be living your miserable lives thinking you're better than everypony else, if it weren't for *my* magical abilities! I brought you friendship! I brought you equality! I CREATED HARMONY!
Double Diamond: You lied to us!
Starlight Glimmer: So what? Everything else I said is true, the only way to be happy is if we're all equal!
Party Favor: Except for you!
Twilight Sparkle: [She grits her teeth and her horn glows] Everypony has unique talents and gifts, and when we share them with each other, that's how we...
Starlight Glimmer: QUIET!
Sugar Belle: You can't have that cutie mark, Starlight. Either we're all equal, or none of us are! [the villagers advance on her, she backs up into the Mane 6, then she magically pushes them all away a short distance with a barrier and runs off into her house and locks the door]
Double Diamond: Come on, let's get our cutie marks back! [All the villagers run for the cutie mark vault]
Rainbow Dash: Come on, let's go get *our* cutie marks!
Fluttershy: Our cutie marks aren't in the vault. [Points to Starlight Glimmer's house] They're in there... with *her*!

Fluttershy: I agree with Twilight. And Rarity. And Applejack. And Rainbow Dash. And Pinkie Pie... and probably Spike.
