* OrwellianRetcon: The famous Derpy scene [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCUT-KHWeec has been altered]]: Derpy is no longer referred to by name (except in TheHub's closed captions, since they weren't updated to match the new version), her googly eyes are much less googly, her voice has been re-dubbed to be more TheDitz, and Rainbow doesn't use as harsh of a tone when speaking to her. This was revealed to be a response to a number of complaints that Derpy seemed insensitive to the mentally challenged, against the show's message of tolerance. While the episode's writer, Amy Keating Rogers, believed changing the episode would only [[BrokenBase complicate things]] (since the praise and thanks she had received FAR outweighed the hate mail), the decision was out of her hands.

* EveryManHasHisPrice / ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: When Applejack hires a carriage to skip town and her friends start chasing her, both Applejack ''and'' Twilight try to buy the pulling stallions by offering them double pay if they run faster, then triple pay if they slow down and finally quadruple pay if they run at top speed and leave the girls eating their dust. The stallions happily accept every offer without a single beat.
** At the end, the stallions decide that not even quadruple pay is worth risking their lives for Applejack and they ditch her.
