The Fallacy itself winds up being summarized in a speech by [[spoiler: Apple Bloom]], and the voicing of it is part of what finally [[spoiler:[[Recap/TriptychContinuumUnstableSale breaks the Crusade]]]].

Then it's a moon, lots of moons, and then when it's a year, it's gotta be more. We keep goin' an' goin' 'cause if we ever ''stop'', then it means we wasted ''everything''.
