but upon passing by a field of sunflowers, the trio decide they can rebuild elsewhere.would upset you, so in general I don't say those things...\\
'''Lapis:''' Peridot, that's lying!



** Steven, Amethyst, and Peridot take the train to the Kindergarten instead of the warp pad as they did when Amethyst first brought him there, which Peridot lampshades. The soundtrack even plays an instrumental of their song 'On the Run', which they sang in the boxcar on the way there the first time around.
** Peridot moved back into Steven's bathroom after Lapis ran away from Earth and took the barn with her.
** Amethyst gets 8XJ's name wrong, or at least which exit hole is hers.

* HeelRealization: Peridot recounts how living close to nature has changed her views of the Kindergartens, and seems ashamed for being involved with them.
-->''This used to make sense to me. I thought life was generated in a Kindergarten. Formless, aimless energy channeled into new, useful Gems. But life doesn't start in a Kindergarten. It ends here. I've gotten used to plants everywhere. Bugs and breeze, and sunshine... all of that has been sucked out of this place. It's with the Amethysts that were produced here, and now this place is nothing but a miserable husk.''

'''Peridot:''' Nothing.
* HopeSpot: After Peridot laments how the Kindergarten permanently sucks the life out of the area, the trio find a flower that inexplicably bloomed there. Believing the Kindergarten is becoming habitable again, they spend the rest of the day planting sunflowers. Not only do the sunflowers die within a day, it turns out that the "flower" they found isn't actually a flower, but the nose of a Gem monster poking out of the ground.
-->'''Peridot:''' ''(indignant)'' [[LampshadeHanging OH! OF COURSE!]] ''(gets SwallowedWhole by the monster)''

* SwallowedWhole: The Gem monster eats Peridot. She's freed when Smoky Quartz poofs the monster.
* TemptingFate: On their way to check on the plants they planted at the Kindergarten, Amethyst remarks "The Kindergarten looks better than ever!" Cue DescriptionCut to Steven, Peridot, and Amethyst finding their field of sunflowers dead and slumped over.
* ToiletHumor:
** With Peridot occupying the bathroom again, Steven has "three things I have to do in the sink now", and washing his face is just the one he doesn't mind Amethyst seeing.
** Peridot has gotten so used to sitting like a lump in Steven's bathtub that her way of saying "I need to go to my room" is "[[ThatCameOutWrong I need to go to the bathroom]]".
* VisualPun: Steven and Amethyst are positioned as if in a wheelbarrow race, then Amethyst shapeshifts into an actual wheelbarrow.

** Steven, Amethyst, Peridot once again calls the swimming hole she dug in "Barn Mates" a "smaller than average lake".
** When he
and Peridot take the train bump into him, Steven notices that Onion was wearing his (Steven's) farmer hat.
* CuttingTheKnot: When Lapis decides

The soundtrack even plays an instrumental of tries to stall by claiming they can't leave their song 'On the Run', which they sang in the boxcar possessions behind, [[HurricaneOfExcuses moving on the way there the first to a new one]] each time around.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Peridot's depression over Lapis leaving her Peridot and taking nearly everything they have plays entirely resembles a divorce. [[DivorceAssetsConflict Peridot gets the dog, Lapis gets the house and everything in it.]]

out of fear of being involved in another war and takes the barn with her, despite the efforts of Peridot and Steven to be like a reluctant divorcee's. She's even crashing at convince her otherwise.

* DontExplainTheJoke: Amethyst FalseReassurance: Peridot says she hopes to keep in touch after her and Lapis evacuate into space, but Steven points out that's far beyond her tablet's abilities. Peridot tries to spin this as a positive.
-->'''Peridot:''' Maybe it's best I can't reach you. If the Diamonds ''do'' show up and destroy the planet... ''(feigning enthusiasm)'' [[IgnoranceIsBliss we'll never know]]!
* FauxHorrific: Because Peridot considers the barn part of the context for her art installations, she is aghast at the idea that taking them out will turn them into performance pieces.
-->'''Steven:''' It's okay. Performance art's not bad, just misunderstood.
* GoneHorriblyRight:
** Peridot's efforts to avoid upsetting Lapis further only ended up making it so that she's too much of a doormat to express her problems with Lapis' plan to flee into space until the last minute, and can't actually convince her not to.
** Lapis was originally just going to take Pumpkin and Peridot, abandoning everything else in the process. Peridot argued that she couldn't just leave the barn, her art, and her possessions, hoping this would talk Lapis down and convince her to stay. She ''did'' convince Lapis of the value of these things, but all this means is that Lapis took them with her when she left, depriving Peridot not only of her best friend, but also her home.
* HiddenEyes: Lapis has these when she rejects Peridot's offer to stay and fight for Earth.
* HypocriticalHumor:
-->'''Lapis:''' ''(irritated, SuddenlyShouting)'' There's no need to get so ''emotional!''
* IChooseToStay: Peridot decides to stay on Earth and fight the Diamonds if it comes to that, since Earth is their home now and is worth defending. Lapis isn't convinced and flies off with the barn.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: Lapis unilaterally decides she and Peridot need to leave Earth, largely ignoring Peridot's feeling and dismissing her argument.
Peridot has a "green thumb", and Steven annoys apparently encouraged this kind of behavior, repeatedly holding her tongue to spare Lapis' feelings (which Lapis finds dishonest). Ultimately, Lapis leaves by herself, but still takes the entire barn, leaving Peridot by pointing out it's true both [[TheGardener figuratively]] and [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation literally]].Pumpkin homeless.
* TheDragAlong: IronicEcho: When Steven sets up his bathtub as a makeshift bed for Peridot, she says "Wow... thanks." again, but in the most depressed manner possible.
* LiteralMetaphor:
Peridot agrees to visit the Kindergarten, but is so unenthused that Amethyst finds it necessary to carry her out draped claims she was "bending over the shoulder.

LongLastLook: Lapis takes one last look at Steven, Peridot, and Steven making a garden in the Kindergarten.

* MusicalisInterruptus: Less than a line into a song about trying to talk to Connie, Steven gets a video chat from Peridot and Lapis.
* NeverBeHurtAgain: Lapis was so traumatized by getting caught in the Gem war
that were produced here, she absolutely refuses to stay on Earth when she learns Steven ran from the Diamonds, and now this place is that another war may be coming.

* PutOnABus: Lapis takes the barn into space to flee from the wrath of the Diamonds.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When Lapis learns that Steven escaped the Diamonds, she fears they'll bring their wrath down on Earth and insists on leaving before that happens. Despite her best efforts, Peridot can't talk her out of it.
* StealthPun: Lapis uses her water powers to lift the barn off the ground. In other words, it's a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn_raising barn raising]].
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: As Peridot and Steven search for Pumpkin, Peridot does a very bad job pretending she's happy with leaving Earth.

'''Steven:''' ''(embarrassed)'' Sorry guys. There's been

'''Peridot:''' Like what? ''Tell us.

* HeroicBSOD: WhoWantsToLiveForever: Generally LivingForeverIsNoBigDeal for Gems, but Peridot is extremely depressed clearly takes issue with the idea of living forever separate from Lapis leaving.
-->'''Steven''': So, what have
both Earth ''and'' the Gem Empire.
-->'''Peridot''': Sometimes
