* ShownTheirWork: It's easy to miss, but every step of Twilight's buck when she dumps Spike is exactly how a real horse would dump its rider, including her pinned ears and leading with her front legs first to put the "snap" into the whole motion. Even for a simple two-second gag, the animators took the time to get it right.

Added DiffLines:

* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: After Zecora tells her she has to be patient, Apple Bloom complains that she's been told that by every pony she knows and now every zebra she knows. Guess how many zebras she knows.

* AbsenteeActor: Fluttershy, and while Rainbow Dash makes a cameo she doesn't speak. And while Andrea Libman's other character Pinkie Pie speaks, it's with the voice of Shannon Chan-Kent, who does Pinkie's singing.

** Apple Bloom's rant about Cutie Marks is followed by an anguished cry of "but ah wan' it nooow!" which is a reference to "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E12CallOfTheCutie Call Of The Cutie]]". Also, one of her new talents caused by the Cutie Pox is hang-gliding.
** In the French dub, Apple Bloom suggests that if they all are good at bowling, they call themselves "Les Trois Boules" instead of "The Three Strikes". Scootaloo shoots the idea down saying it makes them sound like "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E17StareMaster des poulets [chickens]]]". Also, three strikes in a row in bowling is called a "turkey" - yet another flightless bird Scootaloo doesn't want to be associated with.

* EpicFail
** Apple Bloom threw (or spat) her ball with very bad form, releasing it on an upward trajectory and causing it to bounce down the lane. Somehow, it went perfectly straight and touched the front pin, and yet lost so much velocity that the pin didn't even ''budge''.
** Which is still better than Scootaloo's performance; her ball didn't even stay in the right ''lane'', caused destruction, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking landed in the gutter]]. She suspects she might be banned from the place from now on.

* FingerlessHands: Though normally [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in the series by WordOfGod, special mention goes to its avoidance in the bowling alley scene. None of the balls (outside of {{Imagine Spot}}s) have finger-holes, and through the CMC, we're shown at least three ways ponies can bowl (butting with head, bucking the ball, and using one's mouth).
