* ComicallySmallBribe: Played with. Rarity pays Spike with the tiniest jewel, so it's the smallest payment he gets, since he wants to use it for food. Later, the Cutie Mark Crusaders use that same gem to buy a humongous and obviously quite expensive hairdryer, so this jewel obviously has a very high monetary value. For comparison's sake, Spike used two of the biggest gems to pay for train tickets (though cross-country, round-trip train tickets for four people and a bunch of pets wouldn't be at all cheap) and ''a tray of donuts''. [[labelnote:explanation]]This is FridgeBrilliance, however, when you consider that the size of the gem ''doesn't'' indicate its monetary value. The jewel that Rarity gave to Spike could be a [[http://media.liveauctiongroup.net/i/5583/8530676_1s.jpg?v=8CBB4EBD63309F0 Pigeon Blood Ruby]], which is one of the rarest gems in existence, and therefore valuable. What Fluttershy gave Spike looked like [[http://www.mysticfamiliar.com/library/crystals/images/em2.jpg an emerald]], and emeralds are more common than rubies.[[/labelnote]] At the same time, as a dragon, the monetary value of a gem doesn't matter nearly as much as its size and taste. Spike using the smallest gem as payment to the CMC is much less a sacrifice to him than would be the largest.

Once they get to the empire--and Spike gives away his second-to-last jewel to pay for a wrecked donut cart--Angel sees Fluttershy and friends at the station, and once again gets loose to reunite with his owner. Spike desperately throws his final, biggest jewel and knocks down a tower of luggage to block Angel's path so he can catch the bunny. Spike, the pets, and the Crusaders all board the train back to Ponyville but, unluckily for them, all have to hide in the same car as the six ponies.
