Spike suggests a visit to a fortune teller, "Madame Pinkie". [[FriendshipIsWitchcraft With her gypsy magic]], Pinkie Pie tells Twilight thatů she will get a ''really awesome'' birthday present next year. Twilight asks her to use her Pinkie Sense instead, but Pinkie explains that it's only for vague, immediate events -- like a flower pot suddenly falling out of the sky onto Twilight's head.

* InnocuouslyImportantEpisode: This episode appears at a first glance to be your standard slice-of-life comedy with a few wacky time travel and end-of-the-world hijinks sprinkled in. A few seasons later, [[CerebusRetcon these "hijinks" have incredibly dire consequences]] that directly pave the way for not one, but ''two'' future season finales:
** The first occurs when Cerberus leaves his post, and Twilight returns him to the gates of Tartarus without a fuss before any of the creatures imprisoned there can escape... except the Season 4 finale reveals that one prisoner ''did'' break out, and he happens to be one of the most dangerous foes Equestria has ever seen.
** The second involves the time travel spell Star Swirl devised, which only allows so much time to create a StableTimeLoop. As the Season 5 finale reveals, however, the spell can be jacked up with an AmplifierArtifact, creating a truly catastrophic ButterflyEffect.

* ItOnlyWorksOnce: The time-travel spell is specifically stated to work only once. Hence its temporariness.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: The events of the episode could have been avoided if Past!Twilight had shut up for one minute, or Future!Twilight not gone back in time to tell her not to worry. Or even worry about the future in the first place. [[FridgeBrilliance Maybe this was the whole point.]]
