The Mane Six proceed to the royal castle, as Princess Celestia has graciously loaned the main ballroom for Twilight's party. Fortunately for Rarity, the Garden Party is just outside, so she starts [[TwoTimerDate rapidly switching between the two events]]. After Rarity accidentally brings in a croquet mallet from outside, Twilight discovers that she's been sneaking out, then compliments Rarity for using the opportunity to sell her designs to the Canterlot elite. Not only do Rarity's friends let her go to the Garden Party…

[[OhCrap …but they invite themselves to come along.]]

* AbsenteeActor: Spike is the only main character to not appear. This is {{lampshaded}} in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E21DragonQuest Dragon Quest]]", where we see a photograph taken, presumably, at the birthday party Twilight threw in this episode - a cut-out of Spike is taped into an empty space.

* GenreSavvy
** Although she doesn't outright state it, Rainbow Dash immediately picks up on Rarity's two-timing, confronting her about her fancy attire and having the most blatant "oh really?" expressions when she behaves strangely. Rainbow probably suspected her from the moment the letter arrived about Opal.

* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask: During the teaser, Princess Celestia clearly thinks that letting Rarity stay in the castle is no big deal, and looks severely uncomfortable when Rarity starts kissing her hooves. The two share an embarrassed smile at the end of the episode when the porter collapses under the weight of Rarity's luggage.

* ParentalBonus: In the museum shot during the song, at least two of the paintings are inspired by real-world artists, Pablo Picasso and Creator/SalvadorDali (more specifically, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Persistence_of_Memory "The Persistence of Memory"]]). Rarity is also dressed like Music/{{Yoko Ono}}.

* ThrowTheDogABone: This episode sees three Mane Characters get at least some portion of what they wanted out of last year's Gala. Rarity is accepted into the Canterlot elite, Fluttershy gets to play with the animals in the palace garden, and Pinkie Pie attends (indeed, ''hosts'') a party, Pinkie-Pie-style, in the palace ballroom, ''and'' gets to crash the garden party. The Canterlot ponies are unimpressed, but Pinkie actually seems to enjoy herself this time (probably because her best friends were there). Rarity also meets a high society pony who actually behaves like a proper gentleman towards her as well, what she expected from Prince Blueblood but [[PrinceCharmless never got]]. [[ButtMonkey Twilight]] actually gets to have a fun birthday party despite being neglected by Rarity.

** Rarity's behavior at the Wonderbolts Derby is similar (though not as extreme) as Audrey Hepburn's character in ''MyFairLady''.
