* The characters of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' usually react this way whenever CloudCuckoolander Pinkie Pie says something nonsensical or [[BeyondTheImpossible breaks the laws of physics]] - that is, [[SeenItAll when it provokes a reaction at all]]. Such incidents are so commonplace that the phrase "She's just being Pinkie Pie" has come into use as a catch-all explanation for her feats.
