Finally ashamed at how monstrous she's become, Fluttershy boards up her house and hides inside, for fear of hurting anypony else ever again. Concerned about her, Pinkie Pie and Rarity come by, then try to coax her out by saying she doesn't have to be a bully to be assertive. Midway through their discussion, Iron Will and his crew show up as well, to collect Fluttershy's payment for the seminar. Frightened of what he might do to their friend, Rarity and Pinkie stall him, but Fluttershy accidentally gives herself away with [[SneezeOfDoom a sneeze]], whereupon Iron Will threatens to tear her door down if he doesn't get paid. Fluttershy finally comes out... and tells Iron Will that she ''refuses'' to pay. Calmly but firmly, she explains that he had promised 100% satisfaction... and she's not satisfied with the seminar at all. Unable to argue with that, Iron Will agrees and leaves without a fuss.

* IncomingHam: Iron Will's entrance involves artificial smoke, dramatic spotlight, fireworks, a well-time cape reveal, a theme music sounding like "Eye of the Tiger", and him flexing his muscles before he's even start talking. The whole work.

* SanitySlippage: Fluttershy becomes more of a complete bitch every hour. The first time she learns how to be assertive by telling off the goat on stage in an imaginary scenario, and after she splashes Mr. Greenhooves who flooded her garden, her actions becomes increasingly aggressive and her interactions more insane. It's made particularly obvious in that Fluttershy knows in that without it, everyone would be seeing her as an easy pushover and target again, and she decides to throw caution to the wind and at least earn back her approval from Rarity and Pinkie Pie again.

** In fact there's a surprising number of them in this episode. Ponyville seems to suddenly be filled with the inconsiderate, line cutters, and petty extortionists (the most egregious being the cherry stall owner who inflates his price when he hears that Fluttershy needs the cherry). Yes it's to help Fluttershy stand up for herself but sheesh, they just come out of the blue all of a sudden.

* TheFriendsWhoNeverHang: Pinkie Pie and Rarity appear together before they are insulted by Fluttershy. This is only the second time in the series where they've been seen alone together onscreen (the first being in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E14TheLastRoundup The Last Roundup]]") and the first time by choice.
