    • Rainbow Dash: Why do you keep cutting him some slack?
      Fluttershy: Because that's what friends do.
      Discord: We're friends?
      Fluttershy: Why, of course. I can't remember my house ever being this lively before you came along.
      Discord: Oh. Well, I've never really had a friend before.
      Fluttershy: Well, now you do.

    • Discord : (After changing everything back to normal) I like it better my way, but I guess when you're friends, you can't always have things exactly your way all the time.

    • Applejack: (While hearing a beaver chattering) What's he goin' on about?
      Fluttershy: Good news. Mr. Bevearton Beaverteeth has agreed to take his dam apart and move it.
      Applejack: Well, it's about time. My apple trees are so waterlogged I can practically hear 'em gargle.
      Fluttershy: (The beaver chatters something to her) But he says first you'll have to apologize for calling him a nuisance.
      Applejack: Apologize? He's lucky I didn't call him a varmint!
      (The beaver chatters angrily at her)
      Fluttershy: (Gasps) Mr. Beaverton Beaverteeth! Such language!

    • Discord: Yes, Princess, I'm ready to use my magic for good instead of evil. (Under his breath) Most of the time.

    • Fluttershy: You'd best watch your step, buster, or I'll give you the Stare!
      Discord: (Sarcastic) The Stare? Oh no, please, not that! Anything but your disapproving eyeballs! (Fluttershy gives him the Stare) Oh no! No no no, stop! No, no! (Acts like he's being strangled) I can't! Stop! I can't take it anymore! I'll do whatever you say! Because....(Bursts out laughing) You are hilarious!

    • Twilight: There's something fishy going on. (A tureen shaped like a fish sprays soup at her)
      Fluttershy: Discord!
      Discord: Well it's hardly my fault if the soup tureen finds the term "something fishy" to be offensive.

    • Discord: Look, everypony. Dancing candles.
      Rainbow Dash: I'm not falling for that. Discord's just trying to distract us from..(The candles attack her) Hey! Knock it off! I suppose that's another "mistake?"
      Discord: No, I think you just made them mad.

    • Discord: You think you can boss Discord around? You think I'm just going to turn all this back because you say so? Because if I don't I'll lose the one friend I've ever had? (Realizes what he just said and gets teary eyes) Well played, Fluttershy. Well played.

    • Twilight: With all due respect, Princess Celestia, (Shouts) HOW COULD YOU BRING DISCORD HERE?! (Clears throat) Your majesty.

    • Princess Celestia: I'm fully aware that the last time Discord was here, he created serious havoc.
      Rainbow Dash : If by "serious havoc," you mean turing Ponyville into the chaos capital of the world.
      Rarity: And tricking us all into being the opposites of our true selves.
      Pinkie Pie: And making yummy, delicious chocolate milk rain all over the place without a single dollop of whip cream to go with it anywhere in sight. Not a single dollop!

    • Discord: You like carrots, Angel? I'm playing your owner for a fool! How d'ya like them carrots?

    • Princess Celestia: Congratulations on your success, ponies. I definitely sense a big change in Discord. (To Twilight) I'll leave the Elements of Harmony with you, Twilight. Just in case.

    • Fluttershy: Go on. Say it.
      Discord: Oh, alright... (reluctantly and quickly) Friendship is magic.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The scene where Discord is eating the pages to Twilight's books is a reference to the Star Trek: Next Generation episode, "Deja Q," where Q (Played by Discord's VA, John De Lancie) asks Worf if he has "eaten any books lately. "

    • The episode title is a parody of the phrase "Keep Calm and Carry On", a propaganda slogan put on posters by King George VI at the outbreak of the second world war. Most of the posters were lost in a bombing and were never released to the public.

    • The scene at the dinner table with all the dancing candles is a reference to the "Be Our Guest" song from the Disney film, Beauty and the Beast.
