* BothSidesHaveAPoint: Windy and Bow are correct in that they're just trying to be supportive of their daughter, but Rainbow rightfully points out that they can be excessive despite their intentions.

* EatTheCamera: Played straight during Scootaloo's CatapultToGlory; inverted during her as the OverlyLongScream continues into the AdBreakDoubleTake (i.e. Spit Up The Camera; also see the respective entries).


* ForgotToMindTheirHead: In the Wonderbolt lockers room, Rainbow Dash has her head inside her locker when she's startled by her parents showing up, and [[https://derpibooru.org/1918725 she clonks her head on the upper shelf]].



* GiverOfLameNames: Rainbow Dash is very on-the-nose about the intent of her special, private show for her parents after yelling at them:
-->'''Rainbow Dash:''' Mom and Dad, welcome to the... "[[MotorMouth I Love My Parents and I'm Sorry That I Took Them for Granted and I Know That They Made Me Who I Am Today So I Really Wanna Make It Up to Them]]"... [[OverlyLongName event]]. Enjoy.



** Rainbow Dash describes her relationship with her parents as "delicate." The episode, however, seems to indicate it's not that great (at least before she makes amends). Especially when you consider that ''she didn't tell her parents she was a Wonderbolt.'' Rainbow feared how they would react in their usual way upon learning she fulfilled her dream.

* MinorInsultMeltdown: Rainbow Dash yells at her parents for praising her in ''hanging up a towel'' and it reduces them to tears.

-->'''Windy Whistles:''' First of all, great job yelling at us, sweetie. No one, ''[sniffs]'' can make their parents feel more worthless than you!\\

* ShrineToSelf: Rainbow's parents have build one for their daughter, including everything from genuine momentoes, to rather unremarkable ones, to [[NauseaFuel pretty disgusting ones]].

Added DiffLines:

* JawDrop: Windy Whistles and Bow Hothoof's reaction to learning that Rainbow Dash joined the Wonderbolts is to have their mouths hanging wide open in shock. Scootaloo tells them they should see their faces, takes a picture and show it to them. They still have the same expression after a scene change.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverMyFault: When Rainbow Dash has her outburst, her parents turn her arguments around, saying Rainbow embarassed them by yelling at them. On top of that, the ending has Rainbow doing all the realization and apologizing, while her parents don't have any realization at all. In fact, they do the exact same thing for Scootalo! Although, she literally asked for it.

-->'''Scootaloo:''' I met your parents hoping to learn more about you, ''but I don't like what I found out!'' ''[throws her notebook on the ground]]'' I'll find somepony ''else'' to do my hero report on.

* BrokenPedestal: Scootaloo briefly feels this way towards Rainbow Dash after she yells at her parents. She even tosses the notebook which contained her hero report on Rainbow Dash on the ground, and says that she's going to do her report on someone else.

* InstantlyProvenWrong: When Rainbow’s parents see her perform as a Wonderbolt, Fleetfoot assures her that besides being a little loud they weren’t ''that'' bad. Then Rainbow’s parents set off fireworks, one of which goes off in the shape of Rainbow’s face. Fleetfoot can only say a sympathetic “wow” as if to say “I stand corrected.”
