    • Princess Celestia : We are gathered here today in celebration of a momentous occasion. My most faithful student, Twilight Sparkle, has done many extraordinary things since she's lived in Ponyville. She even helped reunite me with my sister, Princess Luna. But today, Twilight Sparkle did something extraordinary. She created new magic, proving without a doubt that she is ready to be crowned Equestria's newest princess. Fillies and gentlecolts, may I present for the very first time, Princess Twilight Sparkle!

    • Twilight: A little while ago, my teacher and mentor Princess Celestia sent me to live in Ponyville. She sent me to study friendship, which is something I didn't really care much about. But now, on a day like today, I can honestly say I wouldn't be standing here if it weren't for the friendships I've made with all of you. Each one of you taught me something about friendship, and for that, I will always be grateful. Today, I consider myself the luckiest pony in Equestria. Thank you, friends, Thank you, Everypony!

    • Rarity: (after having her memory restored) (gasps) Oh, my! What a terrible dream I had! (looking at Applejack's dresses) . . .or maybe I'm still having it.

    • Twilight: Are you crying?
      Shining Armour: Of course not. It's liquid pride. Totally different thing.
