Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When Granny Smith wonders if any of her relatives will make it to the next reunion, Applejack sees two shooting stars in the sky. This is the writers' nod to the fact that Applejack's parents have passed away and explains why she tries to make the reunion perfect.

    • The Wilhelm scream is heard when Apple Bloom falls on her back after running around the trees. This is also the second time, since the episode "Magic Duel," that this scream is heard.

    • When Apple Bloom and Babs Seed are planing wood during the "Raise This Barn" number, Babs' eyes are miscolored orange.

    • Braeburn, from the episode "Over a Barrel," makes a second appearance in this episode.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Pony: (During a flashback) Hey, where did all them apple fritters go? (Hears a munching noise from under the table and sees baby Applejack) And who are you, little one?
      Baby Applejack: I'm Applejack. More apple fritter?
      (Back in the present)
      Granny Smith: (To Apple Bloom) That's how we figured out your sister had the appetite of a full grown stallion.

    • Apple Bloom : (While looking through family photos) Hey, who's that?
      Granny Smith: That'd be your Great-Great-Auntie Applesauce when she was just about your age. Now, she used to go by another name, but everypony started calling her 'Applesauce' after half her teeth fell out when she was makin' apple jam. Yeah. Never did find them teeth in all those jars.

    • Granny Smith : How long you had those new chompers, Auntie Applesauce?
      Auntie Applesauce: A lady never reveals the age of her teeth.

    • Apple Bloom : I get that my big sis wants this to be like a super-awesome reunion, but that was ridiculous!
      Babs : I thought we'd never get a minute to just hang out.
      Applejack : And your minute's up!

    • Granny Smith: (As everyone arrives to the reunion) This is more exciting than when it rained frogs.

    • Applejack : You may be a tad old, Granny, but you're as feisty and full of spark as ever.
      Granny Smith: Who you calling "old?"

  • NOTES (7)


    • Granny Smith: Think we're going to need a bigger cider trough.

      This is a parody to the line, "I think you're going to need a bigger boat" from the movie, Jaws.
