MAGIC.MOV is the fourth episode of the PONY.MOV series. It premiered on YouTube on April 11, 2012.
PlotEditTwilight Sparkle and Spike try to revive Rainbow Dash, who was previously killed by Fluttershy in SHED.MOV.
TranscriptEdit(Discord is still, yet again, destroying Ponyville when, suddenly, a flash appears from the sky. It turns out to be Princess Celestia, who tries to shoot him with her horn. Unfortunately, Discord just grabs Celestia, and bites her head off.)
(We see the text, MAGIC.MOV, which transforms into a bloody format.)
(The scene goes to Spike, who is humping on Twilight Sparkle's back. We see that they're walking through the Ponyville Cemetary, and right up to Rainbow Dash's grave.)
Spike: So Twilight, how come we're hanging out in a pony boneyard?
Twilight Sparkle: We need six ponies present, or the Elements of Harmony don't work, Spike! Fluttershy killed Rainbow Dash, and we've gotta try to bring her back!
Spike: Man, you are one crazy talking horse. [laughs wheezely]
(Twilight uses her horn magic to carry a spell book.)
Twilight Sparkle: I'm going to try a black magic resurrection spell.
Spike: How about you resurrect my penis? With sex?
(Twilight turns around to Spike, feeling both mad and disgusted.)
Twilight Sparkle [reading the spell]: "For thou who sleeps in stone and clay,
heed this call, rise and obey!
Trek onto the mortal door!
Assemble flesh, and walk once more!"
(Twilight's horn lights up, causing a huge portal opening from the ground. Instead of Rainbow Dash, a huge skeletonized demon, named Wolflor, suddenly arises from the portal. Twilight and Spike both look shocked, as they watch this.)
('After rising from the portal, Wolflor walks over to Discord, they both high five, and then start to destroy Ponyville together.)
[Back at the Cemetery, Twilight and Spike are shown, in a "Simpsons-like" art style, looking both amazed and shocked.]
Twilight Sparkle: Whoops. Guess that was the wrong spell.
Spike: Anymore bright ideas, Einstein?
(Spike honks his nose twice like a clown, as we hear sitcom laughter, and see the words "THAT'S SPIKE!" appearing below him.)
Twilight Sparkle: Oh, I am full of ideas, Spike. I'm a genius!
(Inside Twilight's lab, the scene views on a robot lookalike of Rainbow Dash.)
Twilight Sparkle: Behold, the R-Dash 5000! Phyisically superior to Rainbow Dash in every way. I figured if we don't have the real Rainbow Dash, then building a Rainbow Dash is the next best thing!
Spike: You're an idiot.
(Twilight's hoof grows a finger, and pushes the start button. The R-Dash 5000 activates, and starts to speak.)
R-Dash 5000: Crush. Kill. Destroy. Swag. Crush. Kill. Destroy. Swag. Crush. Kill. Destroy. Swag. Crush. Kill. Destroy. Swag. Crush. Kill. Destroy. Swag. [Twilight and Spike stare blankly at the R-Dash 5000, as it starts shooting the wall of the lab to run out and help Discord and Wolflor destroy the town.]
(Spike looks shocked, as Twilight looks guilty.)
Spike: Smooth moves, smart guy.
(Spike honks his nose again, and does a cartoonish head twirl. His whole uperself bounces and twirls, along with the sitcom laughter and the words "THAT'S SPIKE!" appearing again.)
(Twilight grabs Spike excitedly, as the words fly away.)
Twilight Sparkle: There's one last thing we haven't tried, Spike! One place where even a maverick with my own mind has feared to tread!
Spike: Um, Twilight? You're starting to sound less like a maverick and more like a maniac.
Twilight Sparkle: History is full of maniacs, my friend. [Twilight and Spike walk back to the Cemetery with a shovel, as she continues talking.] Men and women of intellect, highly perceptive individuals whose brilliant minds do neither restraint nor taboo. Such notions are the devils which we must slay for the edification of ponykind, even if said edification violates the rules of decency, society, and righteousness itself.
Spike: [muttering, while digging up Rainbow Dash's grave] Blah blah blah, keep talking, you stupid cripe.
(The scene shows the inside of the coffin, Spike opens the coffin and looks in disgust.)
Twilight Sparkle: Take her. We've got to get back to the lab before anypony sees us.
Spike: You're the boss!
(The scene views on Rainbow Dash's tombstone, as lightning flashes in the sky.)
(The scene goes back to the lab, on an operating table. Spike lazily lifts Rainbow Dash's dead body on the table, and both him and Twilight look at Rainbow from up above. Twilight is now wearing a lab coat and safety goggles.)
Spike: Oh, this is f***ing rad, dude.
(Spike pokes Rainbow Dash's dead body, while smiling, cheekily.)
Twilight Sparkle: [whispering] Listen closely, Spike. What happens here tonight must never leave this room. For if anypony were to know of this gross bastardization of God's law, their ignorance would label this as the ultimate crime of hubris.
Spike: Are we gonna rape it?
Twilight Sparkle: [yelling] Spike, this is serious! You can't tell anypony, because we'll be in deep trouble and we-
Spike: Y'know, you can say "anybody," instead of "anypony." [Twilight starts to feel annoyed.] Frankly I don't see what the point of that is. I would've known what you had meant if you said "anybody." Seems to me like that's the kind of thing that eveybody's doing just because everybody else is doing it. So...
[Spike pulls the worm out of Rainbow Dash's cheek, and slurps it up. Twilight still looks not impressed.]
Spike: What? Look, I'm cool, dude! I'm down! Okay? Frankly, I'm just happy to be here today. Let's just zap this b**** already, okay? I'm gettin' antsy. [in the distance] Give me a break today, huh? My girlfriend's trying to get me to quit weed.
(A huge lightning rod pops out of the library's roof. we then see test tubes bubbling, a heart monitor scanning, and zappers are buzzing.)
Twilight Sparkle: [puts on the safety goggles] This is my favorite kind of magic!
(Spike runs over to a switch, as Twilight then snaps jumper cables on Rainbow Dash's nipples. The lightning then starts to hit the rod.)
Twilight Sparkle: Now, Spike, pull the switch!
(Spike pulls the switch, and Rainbow Dash gets zapped by the lightning, while shaking. Sparks fly through the air, as Twilight is shown, looking anxious.)
Spike: I've heard of shock humor but this is ridiculous!
(Rainbow is shown, still getting zapped.)
Twilight Sparkle: That's enough! Pull the power!
(The machine stops, and Rainbow Dash is, surprisingly, still shown dead. Her mane suddenly turns into an Afro, because of the power of the lightning. Twilight and Spike are then shown at Rainbow's point of veiw.)
Spike: Yo Rainbow Dash. Y'alright?
(Rainbow Dash is still silent. Twilight takes off her goggles, puts her ear to Rainbow's mouth, and waits for a sound. Of course, nothing happens. Spike then walks over, with a smug look on his face.)
Twilight Sparkle: I don't get it. In movies, when they shock dead bodies with lightning, they always come back to life. I thought it would be that simple!
Spike: I guess it's true what they say: there really is no sense in beating a dead horse.
[Twilight and Spike pose for the rimshot.]
Twilight Sparkle: [hands Spike the shovel] Oh well, go bury her again.
(As Twilight walks out of the lab, Spike looks at Rainbow's body, angrily. He then whacks Rainbow's head with the shovel.)
Spike: Didn't get me a birthday present last year. [drags Rainbow's corpse back to the Cemetary] F***in biiiii***...
(Inside Twilight's bedroom, at the library, music from MLP: FiM is played.)
Twilight Sparkle: Dear Princess Celestia, today I learned...
[As the music ends, Twilight stops, and tries to think about what she learned.]
Twilight Sparkle: Well, maybe I'll learn something tomorrow.
[Twilight uses her horn magic to throw the letter in the trash.]
(Back at Ponyville, Discord is still causing havock with Wolflor, while the R-Dash 5000 flies around saying, "Crush! Kill! Destroy! Swag!")
[We see the text, "YOU JUST WATCHED AN ANIMATED PARODY OF MY LITTLE PONY ON THE INTERNET," along with the creepy Fluttershy trademark from SHED.MOV.]
[The HOTDIGGEDYDEMON.COM logo appears, along with the credits.]
(Spike is shown in a blue background.)
Spike: Hey, how's about a wanna have a pizza pie? [The auidence cheers, as those said words appear on the screen.] That's my catchphrase.
- This is the Twilight Sparkle themed episode of the show.
- This is Max Gilardi's favorite episode.
- This episode is rated TV-MA on PONY.MOV TV for sexual themes.
- This was the first episode to have a trailer poster.
- Spike's line, "Yo, Applejack. Y'alright?" from APPLE.MOV is recycled and slightly modified.
- This marks as the first episode to have an extra ending after the credits since APPLE.MOV.
- Character Debuts: Princess Celestia (official), Wolflor, and R-Dash 5000.
- Applejack, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, and Fluttershy do not appear in this episode. Even though she didn't appear, Fluttershy was mentioned. Rainbow Dash does appear, still dead, but is inanimate, so she does not really have much of a role, and therefore does not appear in some ways.
- In the graveyard there was, not only Rainbow Dash, but other characters who died in the series; including: Apple Bloom (got crushed by Discord), Gilda (in Ask Jappleack, a nyan Rainbow Dash went right through her head), Derpy Hooves (was made into a toaster by Fluttershy), and Winona (was also killed by Fluttershy).
- This is the second time a pony was shown growing a finger.
- The storyboard for this episode is available on hotdiggedydemon.com.
- Starting with this episode, Twilight is, somehow, now smarter.
- The animatic for this episode is available on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxTyzoWE4b8.
- The music for this episode was composed by Slowdraw the Hungry Eskimo.
- When Twilight and Spike watch as Wolflor arrives to help Discord, they are shown in a Simpsons-like art style (Max Gilardi is a huge fan of The Simpsons).
- This marks the second time Pinkie Pie is absent, until her own episode. The first is DRESS.MOV.
