my thoughts about the meaning of the word “derp”:
it describes a momentary state of unconcentration or confusion that everybody encounters from time to time, not an incapability.
“derp” relates to “retarded” the same way as “fail” relates to “looser”.
if you say epic fail to a friend when he does something stupid or awkwardly fails he would probably laugh. if he does this quite often you could call him clumsy but you would never call him a looser.

calling someone derpy is actually worthshipping the tendency of someone to mess up things in a funny way.

That episode was

Lol crazy barking patient (I think that is a reference to something, I can’t remember exactly though).

Any other references (beside Indiana Jones throughout)?

Also, blatant lesson is blatant.

I just remembered

That is the exact way I imaged the foyer of the hospital would look. My fic is coming true! (loljk, but i really did image it like that)

A+ Episode would watch again.

When the whole E/I think was removed, I think I can see what they meant by it. This episode had way more death defying stunts than practically every episode of season 1 thanks to Daring Doo.

Also, not one, not two but THREE SQUEE sound effects! I LOVE IT!

Also…was anyone else disappointed when Daring took the statue but no boulder chased her? I know it’s a cliche but I like that cliche :(

Spiderman, X-Men and Battleship.

Dammit, just remembered I was planning to have an Indiana Jones knockoff reference in a thingy I was writing. Can I still do that?
I don’t think I can.
Dammit.

Screw you guys and your happiness. No one cares about Pyro. No one. Well, what did I miss about the episode? I’ll probably never get to watch it due to all the restraints. Might as well get the rundown from some somewhat trustworthy people.

What, you can’t access YouTube or something? If I learned anything about these episodes is that there’ll be an episode up shortly.

Good episode, good episode. I liked how there was a Cloudsdale version of battleship and the rainbow derp face.

I can count to eggheads!

@Doc Brown

I think they’re calling her nursery rhyme.

Inb4 ask tumblr lol

I’m seriously starting to question why I still follow his tumblr.
Anyways, he probably made that particular picture awhile ago and is only just now posting it.

Well it helps that FiM’s artstyle is very clean and simple. With enough practice you can get it down to very simple strokes IIRC.

EDIT: After seeing the image, yeah he prolly based it on the ep synopsis.

I missed the beginning again! This has happened to me for every episode since Baby Cakes! I still don’t know how Dash got put in hospital! GAAAHH!!!

The rest of what I saw was pure awesome though. It made me remember why I used to like Dash so much. Since I really can’t be bothered to give a review in full prose, enjoy these hasty bullet points:

  • I really enjoyed those scenes from the book. It was nice to see some proper action in the show. I thought they got genuinely tense at times.
  • I really liked the appearance of Daring Doo. All it took was a quick recolour of Dash and they managed to make a pony that looks a thousand times cooler than any OC.
  • Did anyone else feel really bad for Dash when she got kicked out of the hospital? I don’t even know how many times I’ve really got into a fanfic only to run out of chapters. The wait is not fun!
  • I genuinely laughed out loud when it turned out that the barking dogs was just a mental patient. I seriously didn’t see it coming.
  • Funny comment in the HaxMega stream: “Yo dawg, I heard you like fanfics, so we put a fanfic in the show so you can write fanfics about a fanfic.”
  • The lesson “Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it” was a pretty damn good one. Direct all parasprites to that scene from now on.

I’m gonna give that a 9/10. I knew that episode was going to be good. We need more Dash episodes where she isn’t a complete jerk.

Sorry Pyro, I didn’t see that, and yes Algernon, we should direct the trolls to that, but sadly trolls are not entirely to bright and they’d still continue to troll and such.

Also, NSFW or not, JJ is one hell of an artist, I just wish I could draw myself, but oh well.

Can you imagine Celestia’s face when she gets her letter?

Two weeks without letters, then Applejack’s “LOL DIDN’T LEARN TROLOLO” and now Rainbow Dash learns to enjoy reading but can’t be assed to enjoy writing.

She broke into a hospital in the dead of night and frightened a sick pony just to steal a book.

That’s the most assholish thing she’s ever done!

(I’m being facetious guys, dun be srz)

I thought other things when she said don’t knock it until you try it.
I’ll go the shame corner now…



If there is anything to be mad over for ableism it would be this and not Derpy.
I love how Lesson Zero Twilight set the standard for crazy faces.

Damnit Connor, don’t give the over sensitive people any ideas, they’re already complaining about Derpy and I’m sure if they see something like that, they’ll complain about that scene.

Well, that was most certainly a crazy episode. Probably going into my faves! The Daring Doo scenes were epic! I literally didn’t think they would do a break-in and chase scene! Also, that mental patient was funny. I knew this would refreshen Dash. Now to wait for the donkey…

@Dr. Gregory Horse: Alligators are usually seen in that kinda deal, and heh, since Daring Doo couldn’t fly, they had to come from somewhere, though the ceiling was an odd choice.

Omgawd piracy is like sooo bad…. you guys are stealing a gazillion trillions from Hasbro, and they do everything for you.

So heres the full episode:

@Connor

That was more a nod to a pony in an asylum done in such an over-the-top way that no one would think ableist (unless they were still sore about the Derpy thing.) Also, did you see the cutie mark for that pony?

Screw?

Screwball’s daddy. (Who’s Discord?)
 
FIC IT!


I liked the episode a lot. More than the last one, and I didn’t dislike the last one either.

  • I wanted to see a gif of Dash bouncing that ball around too.
  • Gonna go ahead and make some of you angry: See how excited Pinkie was when Dash was flying? Shipping. Yep. She’s got a thing going for Dash. Yes, sir.
  • I loved the completely incapacitated Berry Punch beside Dash. I thought the writers were going to do more with her as comic relief, but it was still funny.
  • …I’m going to ask, but I’m not sure if I want to know the answer: the patient in Dash’s old bed…why didn’t he have any mane? (If the answer is what I think it is, then don’t tell me.)
  • I’ve never seen a Indiana Jones movie, but I bet I wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much as the portrayal of Daring Doo (because poni.)
    • Also, that voice for the villain…yes. Same for Daring Doo. I’ve come to the conclusion that it was most certainly different from RD’s normal voice (and much cooler in my opinion.) Kudos to Ashleigh Ball.
    • Any chance that Daring Doo makes a return in a later episode? Continuity, adds a fun and new dynamic to the show again (I bet the artists and animators had fun with having a different universe for which to draw and animate,) and it could give the writers a different scenario with which to write.
  • Twilight was awesome as per usual.
  • Where the blankety blank blank is Scootaloo? I know what Fluttershy’s going to be. I’VE SEEN FLUTTERSHY DO STUFF.
    • Related: I wonder if Scootaloo’s voice actress is very busy or something. Even in MMDW, she didn’t talk all that much (which would still be a lot of time acting, but maybe not as much as a full episode.) That would explain why she hasn’t gotten a full episode. It may be an impractical thing only to get her to come in for that long as do. Which would be sad. But school is school.

Going to browse Ponibooru and CBC stuff. Keep up the good poni.

I don’t think it was Berry Punch. He had a male snout and lacked the distinct tail.

…I’m going to ask, but I’m not sure if I want to know the answer: the patient in Dash’s old bed…why didn’t he have any mane? (If the answer is what I think it is, then don’t tell me.)

Yeah….I was gonna say “cancer patient pony” in my earlier post…but…eh….let’s just assume he’s simply doing it for fashion.

Hello, welcome to my life.


About the episode: I enjoyed it for the same reasons as everyone else, so I won’t bother going over why.

Well, Berry should be by for the details. I actually flipped the sex of the barking mad pony as well, because it apparently was a female.

Macros!

And this…

Going to take a nap now. Yes, it’s only just in the afternoon here.

I didn’t mean to put Barry in the hospital; really!

How would you react if you were drunk off your plot and a gender switched version of yourself broke into your house at 3 in the morning!?

Now we’re just looking for a way to send him home after he gets better.

Did anyone else see the striking extreme resemblance Diamond Tiara has to that purple nurse?

Both have blue eyes.

Both have pastel purple coats.

Both of their manes are purple with white stripes.

The only difference is Tiara has no freckles and she is not stout as the nurse.

Could we have found Tiara’s mom?

PS I’ve also seen suggestions that the barking pony is Trixie.

“Rainbow Dash makes Adorable Faces for 22 Minutes” would make an awesome spinoff.
