** In the beginning of the very first episode, Twilight rather roughly turns down an invitation to a party hosted by Moondancer because she'd just read a book warning that Nightmare Moon might be returning to Equestria that night. Just a moment meant to [[EstablishingCharacterMoment establish]] Twilight's asocial nature? Well, yes, but then in Season 5 we meet Moondancer, and it turns out Twilight's rebuff of her invitation really affected her. The plot of ''Amending Fences'' is about getting her to come out of the shell she retreated into because of Twilight's refusal.

[[spoiler:In "Amending Fences", she saw how one missed event soured Moondancer on the idea of friendship.

** Nibbler's shadow does not appear in the original pilot. It was added later. Sometimes the unedited version still airs.
