    • Rarity : Sweetie Belle, do be a dear and see if you can find some fresh flowers for my bedside vase.
      Rainbow Dash: (Imitating Rarity) Hey, Scootaloo, do be a sweetheart and see if you can gather some firewood. (Scootaloo and Apple Bloom chuckle) Seriously though, can you get us some wood for the fire?

    • Scootaloo: So, it's a horse without a head. Which means it doesn't have a mouth. And if it doesn't have a mouth, it's not a horse-eat-pony kind of horse. But still, it's a horse without a head!

    • Rainbow Dash: I've been told that these very woods are haunted by the headless horse! It gallops only at night...
      Applejack : If it doesn't have a head, then how in tarnation does this pony know where it's goin'?
      Rainbow Dash : It's headless, not brainless. (Continues her story) Looking for little lost ponies...
      Applejack : So where's its brain?

    • Olden Pony: Who's got my rusty horseshoe?
      Rainbow Dash: Here it is, for ponies sake. (Tosses it to the Olden Pony) Now take it and stop all your moaning.
      Olden Pony: Thank you. And have a nice day.

    • Scootaloo: (While hanging off a branch above a river) Hello? Is anyone out there? Anyone except the Headless Horse?

    • This episode revolves around Scootaloo.

    Trivia (4)

    • The tree that Scootaloo bumps into in her first nightmare looks exactly like one of the spooky trees that the mane six all laughed at back in "Friendship is Magic, Part 2."

    • The entire opening scene for this episode, where Scootaloo is riding her scooter through town, is a throwback to the same scene from the beginning of "The Show Stoppers."

    • Rainbow Dash tells the story of the "Headless Horse," which is the same scary story that Twilight told Applejack and Rarity in "Look Before You Sleep."

    • Scootaloo mentions the events from "Sonic Rainboom" in this episode.

    Allusions (4)

    • The plot to this episode is very similar to the Martha Speaks episode, "Martha Camps Out," where Helen (voiced by Scootaloo's VA, Madeline Peters) is scared while on a camping trip due to a spooky story she heard.

    • The story that Rainbow Dash tells, about the Olden Pony, was inspired by the story The Golden Arm by Mark Twain.

    • One of the bags in Rarity's cart has two horseshoes on it that look very similar to the logo to the fashion trend Chanel.

    • The episode title is a reference to the 1993 film Sleepless in Seattle.

      So Princess Luna has the power to enter dreams. I for one would like to see Celesta top that, wouldn't you?
