* In chapter 17 of ''[[Recap/TriptychContinuumAnchorFoal Anchor Foal: A Romantic Cringe Comedy]]'', Caramel tries to [[GirlsAreReallyScaredOfHorrorMovies manipulate Fluttershy into cuddling him on their date by going to a horror movie]]. Except, because of Fluttershy's FluffyTamer tendencies, she's not scared of the movie's monster (a centaur) in the slightest, instead fascinatedly trying to work out how its biology works and sadly concluding that it must be suffering from impacted breathing, chronic joint pain, and potentially fatal bowel torsions. All whilst Caramel stares at her dumbfounded, not understanding how things could have gone so far off plan. The sight is so funny that, InUniverse, Fluttershy's "chaperone", Fleur, has stuffed a hoof into her mouth to keep from laughing aloud.

After finding an ad for water balloons in her favorite magazine ('''Pranksters Alibied'''), she immediately places an order because ponies are starting to look for her cloud soakings, the balloons are new, and they're available with fur dye powder inside: one splash equals one color change. What she completely manages to overlook is that minotaurs have ''hands''. Ponies aren't designed for filling or throwing water balloons, and it takes Rainbow a long day of struggle (to the point where she considers using ''Poison Joke'' to turn herself into a living screwdriver, as opposed to [[ComplexityAddiction going out and getting an actual screwdriver]]) before she manages to get a supply ready -- only to have her first prank backfire, as Rarity points out a LogicalWeakness: [[spoiler: the typical unicorn can't levitate a cloud, but water balloons can be easily sent back to their point of origin. Rainbow ends the story by staining her way into the spa]].

(It's a thought experiment: he thinks it isn't happening: therefore, it did not.) He declares Celestia senile and calls Twilight stupid, which finally triggers this:
-->There was a very long pause. Empires had died in that kind of pause. Some of them had committed suicide as a final desperate means of escape.
-->Twilight's tones were just barely on the edge of hearing, and a disturbing level of politeness had returned to every last word. "I know one form of proof you would have to accept, sir."

* In chapter 55, Discord telling Twilight to get up when he casually drops the bombshell that [[spoiler:the Princesses were Earth Ponies before they became alicorns]].
** In the same paragraph, Discord then makes the SuspiciouslySpecificDenial that, contrary to rumors, the Princesses did ''not'' beat him because he was too busy laughing at their ineptitude at flying on their newly gained wings. He also mentions that their first efforts at projecting coronas with unicorn horns were quite spectacularly disastrous.
