Rainbow Dash: [yawns] What's that noise? Is there a bug in here? [sighs] I dunno about you, but I slept like a filly.
Scootaloo: [nervously] Best night ever.
Rainbow Dash: Glad you're rested up, because we've got a long trek ahead. Totally gonna be worth it when we get to Winsome Falls.
Scootaloo: Yeah... Totally... [twitches]
Rarity: Ohh... Am I sweating? Oh! I think I'm sweating! Oh, uh, but it's absolutely worth it to get to spend time with my little sister. It's just that this cart feels like it's getting heavier all the time!
Applejack: I don't care if that's cart's as heavy as a pack of mules. If we don't get a move on, it'll be dark before we get to the campsite!
Scootaloo: [gasps] Dark?! [wings buzzing] I'll just ride ahead and make sure the path is clear. We don't wanna be out here after dark, right?
Rainbow Dash: Doesn't matter to me.
Scootaloo: Well, y'know, [hushed] it's for the scaredy-ponies, heheh.
Scootaloo: [gasps] Don't fall asleep now... We've got to get to that campsite before dark... [snores, continues over]
Bear: [licks lips] [chomps] [grunts]
Rarity: [fades in] That's why it's always important to bring your own trunk on any public outing.
Scootaloo: [gasps] Um... don't come this way! Take the path! It's, heh, way better than going through the bushes.
Applejack: You're more nervous than a worm in an apple on cider making day. What gives, Scootaloo?
Scootaloo: Heh, nothing, just thought I heard something, aheh.
Applejack: You sure you're okay? You seem a little jumpy.
Scootaloo: Just getting my exercise! You know how important it is to stretch out those hindquarters every so often, aheh.
Scootaloo: Uh, d-do you need a little help?
Rarity: That's so sweet, thank you.
Scootaloo: Um... what are friends for? [sounds of exertion]
Applejack: No need for tents tonight, y'all. We'll just take shelter in that cave.
Rainbow Dash: All right! A deep, dark cave! Perfect for the story I've got for tonight. All we need is a campfire, and we're good to go.
Scootaloo: [gulps] [nervously] Uh, of course...
Scootaloo: [nervously] I'll be right back with lots of firewood from the deep... dark... not-scary-at-all forest!
Rainbow Dash: Thanks.
Scootaloo: [breathing heavily] [sighs] Okay. I can do this. On the count of three, I get those branches. One... two... three! [trembling] [sighs] [nervously] Here, branches branches branches...
Applejack: Bbbbrrr! Hoo-wee! It's colder than a timberwolf's toenail. Bbbrr! Where's that Scootaloo?
Scootaloo: [panicked laughing] Here you go!
Rainbow Dash: That's it?
Scootaloo: It's all I could find, 'cause, y'know, there aren't that many trees around here!
Applejack: It's all we need. Why don't you sit with Rainbow Dash for a while?
Rainbow Dash: Now, where was I? Oh yeah, the [spookily] scary part. [laughs evilly]
Scootaloo: Hey, I have an idea! How about I tell tonight's story?
Rainbow Dash: Alright, just make sure it's a horrible one.
Scootaloo: There once was a really really nice pony who lived in a bright and sunny land, where there are rainbows every day, and lots and lots of happy friends, and–
Rainbow Dash: No offense, but it's not a real campfire story unless somepony's shaking. [spookily] I've been told that these very woods are haunted...
Rainbow Dash: [spookily] ...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. [spookily] ...looking for little lost ponies–
Applejack: So where's its brain?
Rainbow Dash: Ugh. [spookily] Fear was dripping from the air...[crossfades out]
Rainbow Dash: [spookily] [crossfades in] ...and they were never heard from ever again!
Sweetie Belle: [gasps] Never?
Rainbow Dash: Never.
Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: [screaming] [laughing]
Rarity: Don't worry, you'll be safe with me tonight.
Scootaloo: It's not time for bed yet, is it?
Applejack: 'Fraid so, Scootaloo.
Scootaloo: Uh, but we haven't even sung any campfire songs yet! [squeak]
Sweetie Belle: You don't have to ask me twice!
Sweetie Belle: [out of rhythm and out of tune] Ninety-nine buckets of oats on the wall, ninety-nine buckets of oats! Take one down, [crossfades] pass it around, you got eighty-one buckets of oats on the wall, [crossfades] forty-one buckets of oats! Take one down, pass it around you got forty [pauses] buckets of oats on the wall! [crossfades] ...buckets of oats! Take one down, pass it around, you've got zero buckets of oats on the waaaaaaaalllllll!!!! [snores]
Other ponies: [yawning]
Rarity: Good night, Sweetie Belle.
Applejack: Good night, y'all.
Apple Bloom: Good night, y'all.
Rainbow Dash: Sleep tight.
Scootaloo: Oh, just one more song! Anyone? [whoosh] How about a dance contest? I know you love to cut a rug, so how 'bout we mess up a cave floor? I have a brilliant idea! Hide and seek! Who's with me?
Apple Bloom: [yawns] Maybe tomorrow.
Applejack: Seems like you don't really wanna go to sleep tonight. Is there some reason why?
Scootaloo: Pfft, of course not! I just love camping and hanging out with Rainbow Dash so much that I don't wanna waste a single minute with sleep! [yawns] Heh, silly sleep.
Rainbow Dash: That's cool and all, Scoot, but this pony needs her shut-eye and she needs it now!
Scootaloo: Ugh, this is so unfair... [yawns] I'm falling asleep... [snores]
[hoofsteps increase speed]
Scootaloo: [gasps] If The Headless Horse catches me, I'm never gonna be heard from again! And I wanna be heard from! Woah, woaaah! Ugh! [grunts] Woah!
Scootaloo: It's all over! [cries hysterically]
Scootaloo: [panting] Aaah!
Princess Luna: [echoing] A warm welcome to you, Scootaloo.
Scootaloo: Princess Luna! I thought you were The Headless Horse!
Princess Luna: You were mistaken, but I hope not disappointed.
Scootaloo: You are so, so much better than The Headless Horse. But what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be in Canterlot?
Princess Luna: I am the princess of the night. Thus it is my duty to come into your dreams.
Scootaloo: Oh, yeah... Wait, is this just a dream? But it feels so real!
Princess Luna: I assure you that you are asleep. But when you awake, the thing that frightens you most will still exist.
Scootaloo: [nervously] Eh... The Headless Horse?
Princess Luna: Hmmm... Is The Headless Horse really what frightens you the most?
Scootaloo: Mm-mm. I'm afraid Rainbow Dash will find out I'm not as tough as she thinks I am.
Princess Luna: Everypony has fears, Scootaloo. Everypony must face them in their own way. But they must be faced, or the nightmares will continue.
Scootaloo: [nervous whine]
Princess Luna: Face your fears!
Scootaloo: –Princess Luna?! [sighs] It was just a dream.
Scootaloo: [gasps] But The Headless Horse isn't! Rainbow Dash said it lives here, in these very woods!
Scootaloo: It's the wicked whinny of The Headless Horse! [wings motoring]
Rainbow Dash: [whinny-like snoring]
Scootaloo: [panting] So it's a horse without a head... which means it doesn't have a mouth... and if it doesn't have a mouth, then... it's not a horse-eat-pony kind of horse... but still... it's a horse without a head!
Scootaloo: Whoa, whoa! [whining]
Scootaloo: Hello?! Is anyone out there? [nervously] Anyone except The Headless Horse?
Scootaloo: [gasps for breath]
Scootaloo: [screams, fades out]
Rainbow Dash: I gotcha!
Scootaloo: Rainbow Dash! Is that you? Thank you, thank you!
Rainbow Dash: What were you doing out here in the middle of the night?!
Princess Luna: [echoing] It is time for you to face your real fear, Scootaloo!
Scootaloo: [sighs] I'm so, so sorry, Rainbow Dash! I just wanted you to hang out with me and see how cool I was so you'd take me under your wing, teach me everything you know, and become like my big sister! [takes breath] But then you started telling those spooky stories and I got scared! I thought I heard The Headless Horse so I ran out here by myself, and... [crying] ...well, I guess you know the rest. [sniffling]
Rainbow Dash: Hey, I'm gonna tell you something, but if you ever tell anypony else, I'm gonna deny it. First time I heard those stories... I was scared too.
Scootaloo: [sniffles] You were?
Rainbow Dash: Sure! I mean, I got over it because I realized pretty quick that if there was such thing as a Headless Horse, I could totally take it on. So, you're looking for somepony to take you under their wing, huh?
Rainbow Dash: Yeah, I might be up for something like that.
Rainbow Dash: As long as you don't go falling into any more rivers in the middle of the night.
Scootaloo: [giggles] It's a deal!
Sweetie Belle: I call sister teams! Last herd to make it to the falls is a moldy carrot!
Rarity: Ugh, if you insist. [giggles] It is so on!
Rainbow Dash: They think they can beat the two of us?
Scootaloo: [wings fluttering]
The Olden Pony: [grumbling] Who's got my rusty horseshoe?
Rainbow Dash: Here it is, for pony's sake. Now take it and stop all your moaning.
