* When Twilight asks the Mayor if "honorary family members" can help, too, Applejack accepts the help of her friends, saying she'd love to have "the rest of her ''family'' helping out." It was a sweet moment that showed just how much AJ cares about her friends.
** And just how far she's come since "Applebuck Season".
* I thought the other background ponies getting teary-eyed when the Apple Family lost the bet was quite sweet, albeit in a sad way.
