It's harvest time (AKA [[TitleDrop "Applebuck Season"]]) at Sweet Apple Acres. Unfortunately, Big Macintosh has injured his back, leaving Applejack as the only pony available to bring in the harvest. When Big Mac suggests that the job might be more than she can handle, she takes it as a challenge and vows to finish the job by herself... right after she saves the town of Ponyville from a stampede of panicked cattle.

* CallBack: Twilight suggests asking the rest of the Apple clan (last seen in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E1MareInTheMoon "Mare in the Moon"]]) for help, only for Applejack to explain they were just in town for a family reunion, and are busy working their own farms.

* SmackOnTheBack: After reassuring Big Macintosh that she can handle the harvest all by herself, Applejack gives a friendly nudge to her brother, completely forgetting that he had injured his back. Big Mac winces and glares, and AJ says "Sorry."

->'''Twilight:''' ''Your applebucking hasn't just caused ''you'' problems. It's [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal over-propelled a pegasus, practically poisoned plenty of ponies, and terrorized bushels of brand-new bouncing baby bunnies.]]''

Applejack remains stubborn as ever... up until she thinks she's finished, only for Big [=McIntosh=] to show up and point out that she's only harvested half the trees on the farm. At this point, her body has taken all the abuse it can and she collapses. Upon regaining consciousness, Applejack has finally learned her lesson about not being afraid to ask for help. Indeed she literally begs for her friends' assistance, and all the apples are harvested on time with their help.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the ColdOpen, Big [=McIntosh=] has a perfectly two-sided conversation with Applejack. By Season 2, his blunt delivery of [[BluntYes "eeyup"]] had gone [[MemeticMutation memetic]], to the point that OOCIsSeriousBusiness can be invoked by him saying ''anything'' else.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first scene of this episode is the most Big [=McIntosh=] has ever been seen spoken in one place. He would become TheQuietOne later on--this is the only episode where he speaks multiple full sentences without invoking OOCIsSeriousBusiness. Funnily enough, this also resulted in him commonly being depicted with a piece of straw in his mouth, despite this never happening again.

* ExtremeOmnivore: Spike finds the "baked bads" perfectly edible. He even retrieves them from the trash. By comparison, Pinkie Pie, who had been set up as this in the first two episodes, is left sickened when she tries one and is grossed out to see Spike fished them out of the trash to eat them.
