The biggest, however, is her hallucinating her mother still being alive and with her constantly, and even talking to other ponies.]]

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Twilight gives one to Blueblood after he calls Rarity [[{{Hypocrite}} selfish]].
** [[spoiler:Trixie also gives one to the defeated Checker…sort of. She then says she's done hating Checker, forgives her, and she's done letting her control her life, even through justifiable hatred. Which arguably hurts Checker ''worse'' than the speech itself.]]

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: TheReasonYouSuckSpeech
**
Twilight gives one spends an entire day putting up with Blueblood's high and mighty act while cleaning up a StinkBomb Spike let off in his room. She manages to Blueblood after put up with his insults...until he calls Rarity [[{{Hypocrite}} selfish]].
Rarity selfish]] for her expectation of him being a gentlestallion to her. [[RantInducingSlight Twilight lets him have it after that,]] pretty much letting out her entire day's worth of frustrations on him at once. Surprisingly, [[spoiler:it actually gets it through his thick head that he needs to be a better pony]].
--> '''Twilight''': I don't care what you say about me, I can even forgive you for saying Pinkie, Rainbow, and Fluttershy ruined the Gala, [[JerkassHasAPoint because they actually kind of did!]] I may even be able to forgive you for insulting Applejack's cooking! But you do NOT call Rarity of all ponies selfish! She may be a little vain sometimes, and sometimes she lets her desires get the best of her, but she's the most generous and unselfish mare I know! She's the Element of Generosity for crying out loud! She worked herself ragged making me and my friends TWO sets of Gala Dresses, doing everything we asked even though she knew our designs were a big disaster! And you know what, Blueblood? She didn't even think about working on her dress until she had ours made! Is that selfish?! Does that surprise you? Of course it would surprise a [[ItsAllAboutMe self-serving]], [[SmallNameBigEgo egotistical]], {{narcissist}} like you! You know, I wasn't expecting you to be her prince charming, but I was expecting you to be a proper gentlestallion! That's ALL she wanted for you to do! She'd probably even have been happy if you'd just split everything 50/50! Instead you were a [[PrinceCharmless selfish, egocentric, self-absorbed royal PAIN]] who only cared about yourself and wanted your date to do absolutely everything for you! And now you have the nerve to call that poor mare selfish?! And don't you DARE use the fact you're royalty as an excuse! Because it's NOT! [[GodEmperor Princess Celestia]] is a lot more royal than you are and she gave me a place to stay in Ponyville just because she knew I'd be miserable without my friends! She lent me and my friends the castle ballroom for my birthday party without even being asked! She gave Rarity a room in the royal palace just because I told her Rarity needed somewhere to stay! Celestia set everything aside and came to Ponyville as fast as she could just because Spike wrote her a letter saying I was getting worked up at making a deadline! So no! Being royal most certainly isn't an excuse, Blueblood! And let me tell you something else! It's not an excuse to treat ANY of your subjects who look up to you like dirt the way you did Rarity! Celestia and Luna both go out of their way to befriend and have a good relationship with their subjects. Luna, who rules the night, set everything aside to try and reconnect with her subjects on Nightmare Night! And Celestia isn't too 'refined' that she can't take a little commoner food! If anything, [[TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask Celestia tries to be LESS royal than she really is!]] [[ArmorPiercingQuestion If they're the highest royalty in the land, Blueblood, what does that say about how you behave when you're so much lower than they are?]]
** [[spoiler:Trixie also gives Trixie later sort of ends up giving one to the [[spoiler:[[IHatePastMe her own defeated Checker…sort of.past self, the Great and Powerful Trixie]] (actually [[BigBad Checker Monarch]] disguised as her in a dream). She then says she's done hating Checker, forgives her, and she's done letting her control her life, even through justifiable hatred. Which arguably hurts Checker ''worse'' than the speech itself.]]
