* {{Chickification}}: [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E23TheCutieMarkChronicles The Cutie Mark Chronicles]] established that Scootaloo has a much lower tolerance for so-called "sappiness" than Applebloom and Sweetie Belle. In this episode, though, she's just as eager to see Cheerilee and Big Macintosh get together. It's not a [[TropesAreNotBad bad change]] by any means, but it is jarring and makes the Cutie Mark Crusaders seem more homogeneous than usual. Ultimately justified as the goal is to make Cheerilee happy, and she's just as disgusted as the others by how sickeningly sweet they become.

Later on, the Crusaders are just about finished with the chores when Cheerilee and Big Macintosh announce that with the free time Mac's earned, the two of them have decided to go on a picnic together. And just to mess with the Crusaders' [[ShipTease (and the audience's)]] heads a little, they throw in a little lovey-dovey talk before walking off into the setting sun together, while the Crusaders are horrified thinking they’re still under the love potion.
