  • Quotes

    • Twilight: Maybe I was being overprotective. I could've gained a sister. But instead...I just lost a brother. (Sings) He was my big brother best friend forever! And now we'll never do anything, together.

    • Twilight: (Singing BBBFF)
      When I was just a filly, I found it rather silly,
      To see how many other ponies I could meet.
      I had my books to read, didn't know that I would ever need,
      Other ponies to make my life complete.

      But there was colt that I cared for
      I knew that he would be there for me.

      My big brother, best friend forever!
      Like two peas in a pod, we did everything together.

      He taught me how to fly a kite.(Best friend forever!)
      We never had a single fight.(We did everything together!)
      We shared our hopes, we shared our dreams
      I miss him more than I realized.
      It seems...
      Rest of Mane Six: Your big brother, best friend forever
      Like two peas in a pod, you did everything together.
      Twilight: And though he's, oh, so far away,
      I hoped that he would stay,
      My big brother best friend

    • Fluttershy: (About Cadance) She did raise her voice at one of my birds during rehearsal.
      Twilight: See? Rude!
      Fluttershy: But he was singing really off key. (She takes out the bird and it starts to sing off key)

    • (During Twilight's flashback)
      Young Twilight: I am so lucky to have you as my foalsitter.
      Young Cadance: I'm the one who's lucky, Twilight.
      Young Twilight: You're a princess. I'm just a regular old unicorn.
      Young Cadance: You are anything but a regular old unicorn.

    • Twilight Sparkle: I'm still pretty ticked you're marrying somepony I don't even know. When did you even meet this "Princess Mi Amore Cadenza"?
      Shining Armor: Twily, "Princess Mi Amore Cadenza" is Cadance, your old foalsitter.
      Twilight Sparkle: Cadance? As in the Cadance? As in the greatest foalsitter in all the history of foalsitters?
      Shining Armor: (Chuckles) You tell me. She was your foalsitter.

    • Pinkie Pie: I think this reception is gonna be perfect, don't you?
      Princess Cadance: Perfect... if we were celebrating a six-year-old's birthday party.
      Pinkie Pie: (gasps) Thank you!

    • Rainbow Dash: Whoa! What's with all the guards?
      Rarity: I'm sure they're just taking the necessary precautions. Royal weddings do bring out the strangest ponies.
      Pinkie Pie: Aaaahhh-chooo! (sneezes confetti)
