Yo. I thought this episode deserved a topic. Well, firstly, while it's not on my list of favoite episodes so far, I do have a strong liking to it, mostly because watching Applejack reminds me a lot of my Grandpa. The man is a stubborn mule and a workaholic on par with what's seen here.
My favorite bits were when 'Jack tries to help her friends in spite of losing the ability to concentrate due to overworking. "Baked bads!" Then there's launching Rainbow Dash into the great blue and recreating The Night of the Lepus. "The horror! The horror!"
Overall, though, good episode with a good message about humility and that everyone needs help sometimes.

Definitely one of my favorite episodes. The part I love the most is where Applejack is zoning out while helping Pinkie bake, and Pinkie says "Chocolate Chips!" in slow motion.

I'm not sure why, but the way it sounded along with the way her head moved when she said it just makes me laugh...

Along with the fact it has Derpy's first audible line.

Speaking of baked bads, this image has been floating around for awhile...

Apparently, someone was crazy enough to do it, but not crazy enough to use real worms...

It makes me wonder, were they any good?

OH GOD I remember that picture. I can't look or think about it without cringing. XD The picture AND the potential taste.

That's pretty much my favorite thing about the episode, besides Big Macintosh...uh...existing in it.

Oh well, has anyone actually tried the recipe yet? I'm personally afraid to.

OMFG someone MADE those muffins? XD
That's hilarious.  Oh I want some now XD

Also this was when Derpy became known as the muffin lover that she is ^_^

Applejack reminds me of myself in this episode.  I'm not always a workaholic to the extent that Applejack was, but when I feel like I have something to prove (as she did), I am and against the wishes of friends who try to help.  And I try to help other people while ignoring my own self because, hey, I think I can.  So, yes, I like this episode a great deal.

When Pinkie Pie was telling Applejack the ingredients for the muffins in slo-mo, was anyone else reminded of the Olsen Twins' slowed-down pizza video?

I was, which made that part 10000x times funnier for me.  I still go back just to watch Pinkie in slo-mo.  :lol:

I really liked this episode, not only because it's a reaction image goldmine (seriously, the faces Applejack makes...) but because it had alot of hilarious scenes and a decent moral at the end too. It actually encapsulates all the things I like about the series, come to think of it. And Big Mac's scenes of course!

I like this episode. And I do really understanded Applejack because I do get really stubborn on doing stuff for myself to prove that I can be strong... Sadly for me, I don't have friends who really are on my side to help me.

As for the fun factor, I might say that my favorite scene is when she falls flat trying to catapult Rainbow Dash.

I also love the rabbit stampede, everytime I see it, I imagine Phelous screaming "BUUUNNIIIIIIIEEEES!!!"

I love this episode XD
The slo-mo Pinkie Pie and tired Applejack just made it for me. ^_^

I didn't like this episode as much, mostly because of Applejack's stubbornness.

Seriously, she needs to take a listen to this:

Several.  The series has it's ups and downs, like most TV shows.  But at least I'm not completely disregarding the whole series, like so many other males.

Even this episode, I liked the parts where Applejack WASN'T being so stubborn, and it was focusing more on her lack of sleep.  Especially when she was helping Pinkie Pie.  I laugh every time I hear this:

^I find it strange how she misheard it when it was only in slow motion for her. If anything, that should make it easier to hear.

Also, I said it somewhere else in the forum, but I want to say it here. 0:29-0:33 is the best that's what she said joke ever.

This episode was one of my favorites, because I always bite off more than I can chew and i could relate. :P
5 gallons cider, 71B quality wine yeast, 2 years sat, evaporate for 2 months = Applejack.

I relate because I have a grandpa who also tends to do this exact same thing before finally asking for help. Applejack reminds of him in so many ways its frightening.

Since I mentioned it already, this was was my first episode ever, and I found it to be a somewhat good introductory episode, maybe not as much as others though.
