After the Fact: Keep Calm and Flutter On

  • The opening bit in all of it's trolling glory.
    • Vinyl doing the Record Scratch twice.
    • Silver trolling ILoveKimpossibleALot by ignoring her presence and going on in a manner that will enrage her. All of the other reviewers take shelter behind the tables. He admits he's just trying to get a rise out of her. Which leads to this line:
    Digibro: Are you crazy?!
    Silver: Sources point to... yes!
    • Kim's excitement causes an explosion that hits Digibro.
  • Kim threatens Silver with Discord if he steps out of line. The hippogriff is sensibly nervous.
  • Silver's thoughts on if Celestia wasn't even keeled towards her subjects.
  • Silver Quill's theory about this all-important Royal Summons that kept Celestia away from helping in Discord's reformation.

    Silver Quill: Well, I cannot argue with that!

Get Hyped: The Princess Debate

  • The title card has Silver Quill wearing a crown while Celestia facehoofs and Twilight looks at him a bit amused.
  • Silver invites viewers "all aboard the hype train!" which is an actual train with the engine being some kind of monstrous skull.
  • To make a point Silver demands his friends bow before him. The screen gets censored and the sounds of him being attacked are heard. When the camera cuts back it shows Silver injured and bandaged.
    Silver: Yeah... bowing's a no no.
    • A few seconds later there's a frame saying "Sudden Recovery" and he's good as new.

After the Fact: Princess Twilight Sparkle

After the Fact: Castle Mane-ia

  • "Bees. My god." (A Star Spider drops down) "No. There are no bees here for you."
  • The joke he used when describing Chekhov's Gun: "No, not THAT Chekov. He didn't fire a gun."
  • His reaction to the return of Angel Bunny.
  • "Who is this mysterious Pony of Shadows? PINKIE PIE?!? (plot twist music plays) ...Yeah, that plot twist was visible from space."
    • And after that, he edits the bit of Pinkie playing the organ and dubs it with Keyboard Cat.
  • The clip of Spike laughing off the idea of a shadow pony makes Sombra start crying. Silver consoles him that Spike is just lashing out over Twilight ignoring his plight, which is a clip of him falling for a trap in the castle, and encourages him to go take over a 7-11 to get back in the villain game.
  • Silver's growing annoyance with the Star Spiders which goes on until several drop down and carry him off.
    • Silver declares this will be his last review because the Star Spiders are about to eat him, only to be saved by Sombra who has become manager at the 7-11. Silver notes this means he "can be a tyrannical ruler and collect a paycheck."

After the Fact: Daring Don't

  • In the opening, the clip of Daring Do saying that she can't give Ahuizotl the ring until she's properly proposed is shown. Then it cuts to Silver in horror as a tidal wave of slash fiction appears as he gets caught in it. Then it cuts to Twilight reading a book, only to notice Silver in the slash fiction wave go by, she pauses, then goes back to the book like nothing happened.
  • Silver Quill complaining about Equestrian GPSes.
    Silver: Nice to know that Equestrian GPS is just as bad as ours.
    Siri: Turn right and proceed.
    Silver: Oh, okay. (walks forward)
    Siri: In a few hooves...
    Silver: (falls down a hole) Ahhhhhh!
    Siri: ...You will look like an idiot.
    Silver: *crash lands* Uggh!
    Siri: Doubt me again and I will GPS my boot up your flank.
  • Silver's mind literally crashes with a Windows blue screen showing up in his eyes.
  • Silver questions what kind of jerk just watches through a window as someone is out numbered in a fight... while he is watching through a window as someone is out numbered in a fight. He soon realizes his hypocrisy.
  • While Twilight and Rainbow Dash are giving an unnecessary Plot Dump, Silver is just reading an MLP comic with headphones on until Monty Python characters start telling them to "Get On With It!"
  • Silver figures that Rainbow Dash is more of a Fangirl with Daring Do than she was with the Wonderbolts because of their failure at saving Rarity.
  • Silver's about to do his "CONTINUITY!" gag again before realizing that it doesn't fit and shuts it down.
  • Silver tries to read one of Rainbow Dash's fanfictions called "Fifty Shades of Hay", leading her to quickly attack him. He provides critical feedback about the story while he's being beaten up and Big Mac shows up to deliver the final blow Silver mentions shipping him with Daring Do.

After the Fact: Flight to the Finish

  • The text in the ending:
    Snips and Snails were disqualified for steroid use.
    They honestly thought they were smart pills.
  • Silver's opening argument with his producer which ends with him massively tempting fate.
    Silver: Nuts to professionalism I'm not Harshwhinny and you can't stop me.
    (Cue Evil Laugh from producer and phone hanging up)
    Silver: I'm sure he just thought of a joke.
  • The title card has Scootaloo freaked out at seeing Silver's shadow over hers.
  • Silver goes into a daze over some unique animation, only to get electrocuted. He dials his producer to find out what just happened and finds out that he installed something in Silver, it happened because Silver thought he wanted to be drinking buddies, and there's enough voltage to cook a turkey which triggers the producer to start laughing. It becomes a Running Gag for him to get zapped at random.
  • Silver eventually gets tired of being shocked and declares that his producer, who is revealed to be Dr. Claw, is just jealous his last reboot isn't as good as MLP leading to him being zapped until the credits end.

After the Fact: Power Ponies

  • This Troper was already chuckling at the beginning. It starts with Silver pondering about it being a superhero episode and decides to get into the spirit. First he starts out in a Batman costume imitating Christian Bale, then in a Wolverine get-up only to pop the claws and have it hurt. And finally dressed up as Dr. Manhattan, buck naked and covered up by a nearby shipping crate. Then the Comedy Police shows up and says he's under arrest for his last video.
  • After describing the plot of the episode, he tries the superhero thing again. And becomes a Red Ranger, Sentai style. Gratuitous Japanese and all.
  • At one point, Bulk Biceps appears right out of nowhere, gawking at Flutterhulk. Complete with the obligatory love song. When Silver, in all of his deadpan glory, points out that her Cutie Mark is Butterflies. Cue Bulk Biceps screaming and running off.
  • Those who were scorned by One More Day will surely get a kick out of the ending. Since Spike got the comic at an enchanted comic store, Silver got one himself and is transported into the Spider-Mane world complete with a costume. Then Grogar shows up and tells him that he can get out of the world if he gives up one thing he loves. Who else but Diamond Tiara?
    Silver: Sorry kid, but you were gonna go to Hell eventually.
    • And then during the credits, this caption appears:
    Grogar returned Diamond Tiara after two days. He said he needed to rethink his life.
  • How he imitates a cheesy commercial announcer, which later becomes a gag in some later After The Fact videos.
    Spike: You're the... Power Ponies!
    Silver: "Coming soon from Hasbro toys! Bug your mom, bug your dad! Your happiness depends on these toys!"
  • Silver keeping a continuity count and wondering where the monitor showing the number came from.
  • Silver Quill referring to a quick wordy summary of events as "Adam West stuff".
  • Silver Quill referring to Twilight as multicultural for all the times she technically stopped being a unicorn.
  • The Comedy Police show up again because Silver doesn't find a joke funny.

After the Fact: Bats

  • How he imitates Hunter S. Thompson during the whole video. I dare you not to laugh.
    • At one point he starts having an argument with himself about how he's viewing things while a stonefaced Applejack and Rarity watch on.
    • Silver somehow had a meeting with the Seaponies, which he describes as "a night of unmentionable horrors".
    • Flutterbat isn't the most terrifying thing Silver has seen. That would be Meadow Song, a pony with an incredibly distorted face that roars at him.
    • He mentions taking a literal stupid pill in the morning.
  • "I'd like to buy Princess Promenade, please."
  • Silver makes a drinking game for how many times 'Apple' or 'Apples' is said in the episode, in an episode featuring Applejack.
    Silver: I immediately regret this! (thud)
  • When footage of how the Mane 6 deals with the Vampire Fruit Bats in their own ways is shown, and when Rarity gets an apple splattered on her HAZMAT helmet, a bat starts licking it and sticking to her mask, Silver replaces the audio with audio from Alien. Then says what has to be the perfect joke for this scene.
    Silver: (with an OMG face) Ahhh, get it away from her before she gets a Chestburster!
  • Silver being chased by both the regular fruit Bats and the Vampire fruit Bats.

After the Fact: Rarity Takes Manehattan

  • "Would you like some more cheese with that wine?" "Certainly!"
  • Silver throws a ticking clock through the wall during a scene break.
  • Flash Sentry appears with a sign saying "Will Cameo 4 Waifu".
  • Silver greets Donald Trump, who fires him. Silver responds that "I do not work for you, dummy".
  • Silver shoves Film Sparks out of the scene for no reason.
  • At the end there is a flood of male Alicorn OCs which were started by Film Sparks pointing out a male alicorn in the background. They flee with Silver riding on Film Sparks, who questions why Silver isn't flying away. Silver responds that his animator is too lazy to draw him flying.

After the Fact: Pinkie Apple Pie

  • Silver visits the scariest cave in Equestria and is completely unimpressed with the monsters there. A computer error pops up and he lets out a truly impressive scream.
  • The title card is Pinkie Pie with the Apple siblings and Silver looking across the screen at Slendermane with shock.
  • When Silver is Instantly Proven Wrong about what Twilight is studying he bemoans "Why can't you let me dream?"
  • After going through a checklist of just a small part of The Clan that is the Apple family Silver questions "Does anyone in your family take cold showers?"
  • Silver mentions that he's listened to "Apples to the Core" a few times. His phone promptly starts playing it for the 360th time while Silver can only offer a sheepish grin.
  • When Goldie Delicious is called a crazy cat lady, in comes this gem:
    Silver: Behold Rarity, what might have been! (Rarity screams in terror and runs off while Silver smiles)
  • Silver has the solution to Pinkie Pie's status as an Apple Family relative still unknown... and plans a wedding for Pinkie Pie and Big Mac. Only for Mac to disapprove and punch Silver so hard, he starts flying.
    Silver: You know, I get the feeling he doesn't like me randomly shipping him.
    • Mac hit him so hard that Silver winds up in space. He tells his phone to stop playing "Blue Danube" and it starts playing "Apples to the Core".
  • Silver knocking out the Slenderpony with one punch.
    My ego is soaring, yet I feel strangely disappointed.
    • On a related note, the text at the ending:
    Did you know Slender has a glass jaw? I didn't!

After the Fact: Rainbow Falls

  • When Silver is talking to Toon Critic at the beginning there's the sound of chainsaws at random for no reason.
  • Toon Critic questions if Silver Quill is even on the committee and there's a cut to them locked in a closet with a sign on the knob saying Do Not Open. Silver suspiciously says they should get going.
  • Silver questions why Rainbow Dash would choose Bulk Biceps and Fluttershy as her teammates only to get his question answered by the episode. Toon asks if he's done and Silver just sheepishly walks offscreen.
  • Toon Critic uses Silver's "CONTINUITY" joke, much to Silver's chagrin. A few griffons appear to take him away, being led by Silver Quill's cousin, so he can be subjected to Tickle Torture as payback which goes on for a bit as Silver continues the review.
    • The griffons literally drop Toon Critic once they're done and Silver asks if he's sorry.
  • Silver notes he has no idea why people want his input with a cavalier grin.
  • When Toon Critic mentions the episode's title, Silver Quill is seen holding a "dead" Rainbow Dash and crying for her to "come back to life." When Toon Critic says that the title is referring to the place the tryouts are being held, Silver Quill drops Rainbow Dash like a sack of doorknobs.
  • Talking about Rainbow Dash's conflicting loyalty:
    Silver Quill: Of course, I'm sure that Rainbow Dash will work through this issue by being honest with her friends and talking it out.
    (Cut to Rainbow Dash in a wheelchair covered in bandages.)
    Rainbow Dash: I hurt my hoof.
  • At one point, Silver says that the episode has been pretty much equally divided between good and bad, and that it needs something to push it into one or the other. As he does this, Toon Critic keeps pointing at Derpy, with increasing intensity. This goes on until Derpy enters the episode, at which point, Silver goes "There we go", with Toon Critic face hoofing.
  • At the end the committee finally escape and are coming for Silver Quill. Toon Critic flies off, leading Silver to try and do so only to fall straight down to cliff he jumped off of.

After the Fact: Three's a Crowd

  • Silver's test of fan reactions to guest stars.
  • Silver's "epic" royal fanfare.
  • Apparently John de Lancie is the Chuck Norris of voice acting.
  • When Silver "borrows" some of Flash's Mane to make some "glorious" eyebrows. The eyebrow wiggle he does as well as part of the review just focusing on a shocked Flash staring at his missing mane is quite funny.
  • The ending, followed by the the stinger.

After the Fact: Pinkie Pride

  • Just the beginning itself is great.
    Firebrand: Give it to me straight, doc. What's wrong with me?
    Silver Quill: You have an imbalance of awesome sauce in your system. Too much of a good thing. Tell me, has something really, really awesome happened recently?
    Firebrand: Not really...Well, Weird Al guest starred in an episode of My Little Pony recently.
    Silver: My god! Right, nothing to do but operate. We're gonna have to remove your funny bone.
    Firebrand: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-Wait, what?
    Silver: Your funny bone. And your philtrum.
    Firebrand: That's part of my lip.
    Silver: Your patella.
    Firebrand: A human kneecap.
    Silver: Axilla.
    Firebrand: That's an armpit! Ponies don't even have armpits. Where'd you go to medical school?
    Silver: Wikipedia.
    Firebrand: You're not a doctor, are you?
    Silver: Nooo, but I faked one on the internet.
    Firebrand: Uh-huh... (uses magic and pulls out an M16) SECURITY!
    Silver: Whoa, whoa, whoa, let's not jump the gun here, pun intended! (click, click!) You've got a lot to say about this episode and I can tell. Best treatment is to get your thoughts out there. And for that you need 20 CCs of internet review! Stat.
    Firebrand: If I say yes, will you stop using that awkward lingo?
    Silver: No promises.
    Firebrand: And you have to put back that doctor's coat. (puts down gun) You'd have to re-draw everything and I don't think you'd want to go through that.
    Silver: (shows up without said doctor's coat) Oh, good point. Plus it's easier to play the accordion this way!
    Firebrand: Wait, what are you-? Oh no...
    (Silver plays the accordion really badly eventually transitioning to the title card when we hear a 'thunk' sound. Cut to Silver with said accordion smashed in his head.)
    Firebrand: (sigh) Glad that's over.
  • "Sandvich!"
  • Ahem.
    Cheese Sandwich: Oh, it's no coincidence, my little pony.
    Silver: Ah, he said it!
    Firebrand: (aims M16 at his head) No! Bad Silver!
  • The sirens going off in Silver's head. Literally.
    Silver: What? It's a glandular problem. And I'm very sensitive about it.
  • Just saying, but...
    Firebrand: And as it turns out, Cheese has a PARTY HOWITZER! That is a hundred times cooler than a Party Cannon. What next? Is there gonna be a party nuke?
    (We see Firebrand and Silver wearing shades in the blast of said party nuke as confetti is raining from the sky.)
    Both: Whoa...
  • The Ego Meter. It gets higher on scanning Rainbow Dash as the review goes on. In case you're curious about the levels, it goes as follows: David Hasselhoff, Peyton Manning, Olsen Twins, Seth MacFarlane, Howard Stern, and Glenn Beck.
    Silver: I can't hold it, game over man, additional movie quote!
    (The Ego Meter explodes, burning them both.)
    Firebrand: (happily) I love explosions.
    Silver: (dazed) Good for you...
  • After discovering that Rarity is an alicorn in one scene Silver looks like he's about to go on a rant but actually just notes he can start a drinking game of ponies being alicorns now.
  • The end of the video. Silver, how do you and the Analysts reviewing episodes with you do it with a straight face?
    Firebrand: Well, this was fun. Of course I gotta bring you in.
    Silver: Who's doing what now?
    Firebrand: Sorry. But within the past 15 minutes you've committed several federal crimes. I have you on one count of trespassing government property. One count impersonating an armed forces member. And one count of impersonating a doctor.
    Silver: Well, I...
    (Silver gets thrown in jail in the next shot.)
    Silver: Dude, I cannot go to prison. I'm too pretty!
    Firebrand: Oh, don't worry. I'll put in a good word with the convenient authority. They'll buy an insanity plea.
    Silver: I can wear a lampshade if that'll help.
    Firebrand: Ehh, make it a mackerel. And try to get along with your cell mate.
    (Silver looks to his right to see Apple Bloom next to him.)
    Silver: What is she doing here?!
    Firebrand: She broke her Drill Sergeant's cap.
    (We cut to a video done by FOB Equestria of Michelle Creber pretending to be a training officer and yelling at the guys from FOB.)
    Michelle: Y'all are a bunch of sissies! (throws cap on the ground and breaks it)
    Firebrand: Do. Not. Tick her off.
    Silver: I get the top bunk.
    (Apple Bloom goes apeshit and starts beating him up.)
    Silver: (crying) This is the most adorable beating ever!
  • And after that little gem, we get a post-credits scene.
    Firebrand: Good news, you won't face charges. I got your sentence reduced. ( We see Firebrand on top of the howitzer with Silver inside the barrel) Now it's just banishment by Party Howtizer.
    Silver: You are so kind. Good luck in the Army.
    Firebrand: I'm, a, MARINE!
    (Silver gets fired out of the howitzer into the distance accompanied by the sound of Goofy screaming and a twinkle in his wake in the sky.)

After the Fact: Simple Ways

  • The beginning of the video, which has Silver Quill preparing for the episode since this episode is about to head into the "Shipping Wars". Among the items in his closet are Flufflepuff, the twi-cane, and his suit of armor.
    • He discovers that he can't move in his armor, which prompts Flufflepuff to tackle him.
  • The end of the video, which has Slenderpony vying for Silver Quill's affection.
    • Silver realizes that Slenderpony is just off screen while talking about how he's not around.
    • He admits to being more afraid of Slenderpony as an admirer than he was when he thought the thing was trying to kill him.
    • Silver ends with his tagline as he runs away from Slenderpony while the thing chases after him.

After the Fact: Filli Vanilli

  • The fact that Silver Quill is in a barber quartet with Sombra, Slender Pony, and Tazelwurm.
    • He blames Fluttershy running off screaming on one of the others being off-key.
    • Silver has the group practice for a ball for Celestia. A Gilligan Cut later has all of them floating around the moon, with Silver questioning what she meant by him being tone-deaf.
  • The title card has a happy Silver Quill and Fluttershy and Pinkie gagged and tied up on the ground glaring at Silver.
  • Silver presents the idea that Pinkie's overly detailed description of failure to Fluttershy was karma for her doing the same to Rainbow Dash over the Sonic Rainboom.
  • Silver takes a picture of a crying Angel Bunny to make his new background on his phone.
  • Pinkie's harassing of Fluttershy ended up breaking the universe. It took a believable conversation between Applejack and Big Mac to fix it. And Silver lands on his head when the universe if repaired.
    • After the universe fixes itself Pinkie is apparently floating through space trapped in the Phantom Zone. Not that she cares much.

After the Fact: Twilight Time

  • Silver talking to himself from his first video at the beginning.
  • Silver questions what being a tutor has to do with being a princess only for a crazed OC to charge in to offer his input, much to Silver's shock.
  • "Oooh, Princess of sick burns!"
  • Silver Quill spots a foal (specifically, First Base) that looks an awful lot like Flash Sentry. Chaos ensues.
    And that's why I shouldn't make headcanons!
    • "Tell me Princess, how do feel about being presented Out of Character for the sake of an internet review?"
  • Silver gives Spike a hug over the abuse he has to go through, only the dragon doesn't want to let go and Silver winds up taking him to seek therapy at the end.

After the Fact: It Aint Easy Being Breezies

  • Yet another funny intro.
    Silver: Sooo, some of you might not be surprised to learn that I won't be reviewing It Ain't Easy Being Breezies. It hurts to let go of a Fluttershy episode, yet I'm behind on all sorts of projects. Including getting ready to attend BABSCon. And, quite frankly, (the camera pans to the right to reveal the TARDIS) I don't see how I can get this done with, say, a time machine. And it's too bad that there isn't a willing volunteer to spirit me back to the episode.
    (we see Doctor Whooves bound and gagged behind the TARDIS, mumbling)
    Silver: No sir, not one available Pony.
    (cut back to Silver making a scrunchy face)
    Silver: So I guess I'll just have to move on and do the next-
    (Silver is interrupted by the Back To The Future Overture)
    Silver: (looks around nervously) Why do I feel like this will end in tears?
    (and right outta goddamn nowhere, Silver gets sent flying by a DeLorean and into a tree by Eliyora)
    Eliyora: (steps out) Come with me if you want to live.
    Silver: Wrong movie...
    Eliyora: No. I mean come with me or I'll hit you with my car again.
    Silver: Oh, okay.
  • Eliyora's squee moments through the video all of which include: Reacting to how cute the Breezies are. The Doctor Whooves and Roseluck reference. The Breezie!Mane 6. And meeting Doctor Whooves. The last part accompanied with a glomp.
  • Silver using a megaphone to greet the Breezies only to have Eli shove his head up the thing. Then we see Silver wandering still with his head up said megaphone.
  • Eli pulling out a flamethrower. Which she then uses to torch Angel Bunny instead of Seabreeze.
  • Silver: And after Seabreeze runs afoul of some bees... (in his Batman voice) My god. Again.
  • "But...My drinking game!"
    • "Great grand-dad had a delicious funeral."
  • Eli going all Flame-headed Twilight on Silver after finding out he took her car apart.
    Eliyora: You little Irish chicken horse-butt, what the hell did you do to my car?!
    Silver Quill: Oh sure. Blame the Hippogriff.
  • Silver referencing Seabreeze and Swedish Chef.
  • When Eliyora says she "ain't that damaged" from not getting what she expected in the episode a heavily injured Silver Quill offers a sarcastic "Oh Goodie". Eliyora snarks back that she paid his hospital bill.
  • Eliyora tries to come up with reasons for Spike to stay involved in the episode only for Silver to constantly shoot her down with two words: "It's Spike".
  • Silver's shock at Seabreeze actually being a guy.
  • Silver goes to talk to Doctor Whooves, mentioning his evil twin brother. Eliyora questions what he was doing and he claims to be "building an airtight alibi". Eliyora wonders what Silver could need that for.
  • Silver does the CSI gag of putting on sunglasses after a one-liner only for Eliyora to interrupt the music with her flamethrower and a panicked Silver Quill gets back on track.
  • Silver is saddened that he can't keep his Drinking Game going because there haven't been any background alicorns in the episode. Eliyora starts a diatribe about production regarding that but Silver interrupts to point out he's "90% Irish" in a stereotypical Irish getup. Eliyora's response is priceless.
    Eliyora: And if you keep drinking you'll be 90 proof.
  • Eliyora wants toys of the Mane Six as Breezies. Except Pinkie she's scared of her.
  • Silver declares if the keys unlock Carrot Top's prop box he'll harm the nearest warm body. Eliyora takes him at his word and warns him against it.
    • She declares him a chicken, with Silver protesting that he's only a quarter chicken. Eliyora points out he said he was Irish but Silver defends himself by saying it was an Irish chicken.
  • At the end Silver reveals why he needed an alibi as Doctor Whooves, I'm sorry Time Turner, shows up to give them a lift back to their time. Eliyora turns into a complete Fangirl at meeting The Doctor and The Stinger has her defending herself to a facepalming Silver Quill over taking some of his hair.

My Thoughts: Season 5 Spoilers

  • The whole video, considering it's subject. In it, Silver Quill talks about Season 5's spoilers: The return of Nightmare Moon, Lauren Faust returning as a writer for one of the episodes, Pinkie Pie getting a coltfriend, and finally, Kimisparkle having a cameo role.
    • The best part? He did the entire video in a serious manner, and didn't even say April Fools at the end, just to run along with the joke.

After the Fact: Somepony To Watch Over Me

  • The title card has Silver Quill added onto the chimera as another head.
  • Silver ponders if he should actually watch the scenes before he comments on them but shrugs the idea off.
  • Silver's disappointment over Big Mac not speaking up against Applejack's overprotectiveness. Even if it would have been completely pointless.
  • Silver imitating a game show host.
  • Silver's reaction to Applejack's list of Noodle Implements.
  • Silver finds himself eye to eye with the chimera and is completely unfazed, just warning it to back off because undefined rules prevent hybrid creatures from eating each other.
  • "Talking implies a certain level of intelligence unless it's a politician." (Cue Pinkie rimshot)
  • Silver tries to invoke Fridge Logic about the chimera but gives up after the fire swamp singes him.
  • "In the name of Testosterone, I accept this headcanon!"

After the Fact: Maud Pie

  • The chase at the end featuring the Pony version of Death trying to take Silver into the afterlife after he gets killed by cuteness. He even puts in the Pony version of Yakety Sax.
  • 'Shining Plot Hole' That is all.
  • "'re not a fan of the Stratified look?" This is said while dressed as a rock.
  • Ink Rose singing a parody of Do You Want To Build A Snowman from Disney's Frozen and then Silver Quill calling "dibs."
  • Ink Rose hiding behind her wings whenever the audience booed her.
  • Ink Rose's reaction to Silver's...poem.
  • Silver Quill's ringtone is the Dairanger opening.
  • Silver mentions a friends who tends to act like Maud. Said friend calls him and causes Silver's phone to explode.
    Silver: (Dazed) Surprise in short supply but anger is abundant.
  • Ink Rose wonders if anyone got hurt by the explosion Maud caused by throwing a rock. It shows a scene of Spike having gotten hit and Silver is the one put out by it while Ink Rose finds it funny.
  • Ink Rose blows out her "D'aaah meter" and goes to Dr. Silver Quill for help, who tries to treat her by showing a picture of Derpy and Dinky hugging. It causes her to die of cuteness
    • Silver is at a complete loss as to how he should deal with ghost Ink Rose. She just wants to make sure it's not the Ghostbusters who try to help and asks Silver for some more tea. He snarks that he'll have to murder a bag of Earl Grey.

After the Fact: For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils

  • Yet another great exchange at the beginning, this time with Mr. Golden Fox.
    Silver Quill: Hey guys, sorry to be away for so long. I had a ton of fun at BABSCon. I got to meet with fellow fans, ask some questions of the writing staff, and my mind went in all the wrong places when playing cards against Ponies. I also got to talk with fans about that age-old question: "Who's your favorite princess?" And while it's completely subjective, my favorite is- -(gets shot in the neck with a tranquilizer dart and spouts into gibberish before passing out)
    (Golden Fox moves into the shot with a briefcase in his mouth. He sets it on the ground, opens it, and hooks himself and Silver up to the machine inside it, and enters Silver's mind.)
    Silver Quill: Dude...Not, cool.
    Golden Fox: Well, you were asked on who you think is best princess. So if we're gonna try to understand what you think, we might as well dig a little deeper into your self-conscious. Besides, I've wanted to think deeper with myself about Luna. (blushes) She's, uh, my favorite princess.
    Silver Quill: So you want to talk about For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils while diving into my subconscious?
    Golden Fox: That, and maybe figure out how you come up with reviews.
    Silver Quill: Okay, it's your psyche on the line. Let's start with my ego.
    (A big claw comes down revealing a giant version of Silver Quill.)
    Golden Fox: Well this oughta be good...
  • The comment on Sweetie Belle's acting.
    Silver Quill: Geez, I haven't seen acting that hammy since...
    Golden Fox: Was that-?
    Silver Quill: My social insecurity. I don't know why it looks like that one dude.
    Golden Fox: I guess you could say that was a... (is wearing sunglasses in the next shot)... Funny story.
    Silver Quill: Ohh, is THAT what I sound like?
  • The different parts of Silver's psyche.
    • Psyche joke number 1. Go!
      Silver Quill: Whoa, Spike was helpful AND likable? (smiles) Have we started the dream sequence already?
      Golden Fox: By that you mean we're seeing what we want the writers to actually do? Like putting Spike in a better position rather than treating him like a pile of garbage?
      (A red, pissed off Silver Quill appears out of nowhere.)
      Inner rage: Of course. Why do they have to beat up on the one male character in the show? It's such a s- -(gets hit in the head with a baseball bat) D'OH!
      (The Silver Quill we normally see appears holding the baseball bat.
      Silver Quill: Sorry about that, inner rage.
      Golden Fox: It's not very big...
      Silver Quill: Yep, rage is usually impotent.
    • Psyche joke number 2.
      Silver Quill: Yet it's time to put a little perspective as a familiar voice sends hundreds of fans a-squealing.
      Princess Luna: Enough!
      Golden Fox: Yep. I know that voice!
      (Silver Quill appears wearing a Luna T-shirt and ballcap suddenly talking like a chipmunk)
      Inner fanboy: OH MY GOD IT'S LUNA! LUNA LUNA LUNA! BEST PRINCESS EVER- -(gets hit with the baseball bat from earlier.)
      (Wait, no. It's another part of his psyche.)
      Golden Fox: Wait, you're a Luna fan?
      Silver Quill: Yep. Inner fanboy is a pain to keep in check.
    • "Princess Luna is completely blameless- -(Whack!) Ow, it's okay because I'm not real."
  • Silver making another comment about the potion used in the season opener. Hint, hint.
    Golden Fox: (looks at a tree) Hey, what's this?
    Silver Quill: Do not go in there.
    (Fox looks in the tree anyway. We hear him yelp and see Silver facepalm.)
    Silver Quill: That is my...Questionable mentality.
    Golden Fox: You've. Got. Issues.
    Silver Quill: Mmm, (smiles) yeah.
  • The Fluttershy dolphins.
    Golden Fox: What the-
    Silver Quill: (Tears in his Eyes) I don't know!
  • Golden Fox saying it's the little things that can always throw someone off. Then the clip of Sapphire Shores doing a little dance exercise thing is shown. Cut back to Fox as his wings go up.

  • Silver's inner child.
    Silver Quill: Also, I keep him away from Michael Bay movies as much as possible.
  • The dream world starts shaking and Silver mentions he's a sleepwalker. He encourages Golden Fox to wake up and he can't until they finish the review. Silver finds that to be a ridiculous idea.

Per the IDW Comics Issues 25 and 26, as a legal citizen of Equestria, I enjoy total protection from magical aggression, which somehow translates into me being able to violate the law with impunity. (starts leaving) So I'll just be on my way while you... (face turns angry) you... (stops) Oh ho ho ho. I can't do it! (moves the cart backwards across the screen) This is so contrived! Here's your stuff back. (drops the stuff off offscreen, then appears onscreen with Spike on his back) Here's your number one assistant back!

  • When Silver Quill tells off the CMC for letting Trouble Shoes rot in a jail cell because they won't tell the truth for fear of being punished, Grogar appears behind him and says that even he thought that was messed up.

    • Once the Smoze floods the gala, Silver uses a beaten up Voice of Reason as his boat, while dressed as a gondolier.
    Silver Quill: (singing with a very fake Italian accent) Anchovy pizza! Something, something Italian sounding!
    Voice of Reason: I will remember this, and you will pay.
    Silver Quill: Just stay buoyant, boy-o.
    Voice of Reason: This tux was a rental.
    • Voice of Reason eventually gets his revenge by kicking Silver into the alternate dimension that Discord was going to banish Tree Hugger to.
  • Silver tries to improve Tree Hugger's audio of calming the Smooze. It backfires.

  • At the end of the video, Twilight turns Silver's head into an orange as revenge for saying that he wishes for an episode in which she learns when it's right to not cast a spell. What Silver says in response combined with the smirk on Twilight's face afterward makes the scene hilarious.

When I eventually find Princess Celestia, I'm going to have very strong words for you. I'm Orange Quill. Thanks for watchiii... (falls over) Oh no. I'm bruised.

  • Vinyl's car secretly being a Transformer.
  • Celestia's letter to pre-Equestria Girls Sunset Shimmer, filling in the plot holes of how Sunset knew so much about Equestria in her absence and depicting Celestia as a passive-aggressive troll. Sunset's stare after reading just sells it.

  • During the doughnut shop scene, Silver tries to be snarky about Twilight meeting Minuette, Lemon Hearts and Twinkleshine, but every attempt is rebuffed by the episode itself. Silver has a breakdown.
    Silver: What? What is this? How could this episode predict all of my criticisms? How can it know my nitpicks? It's true what they say! M. A. Larson is a psychic! Away from me, o demon! My mind is not your playground! (awkward scream, and then collapses)
  • Upon reflecting on the names "Lemon Hearts" and "Twinkleshine", Silver realizes this is why he can never have a civil conversation about ponies with a non-brony. Cue Silver in a woman's apartment, trying to talk to her about which pony he thinks is cuter, before she throws him off a balcony.

  • When Luna says her line about her dream ending happily, Voice takes the scene and tosses it offscreen for later, bowling over Silver in the process.
  • The return of the Rainbow Power and the return of Silver's hatred for it. Voice is a bit more openminded, much to Silver's fright.
  • Voice of Reason isn't impressed with Tank's return. Silver corrects him at gunpoint.
  • This:
    Silver Quill: Since Luna saw the Mane 6 in her dreams...(huge mound of papers pile up on one side of the screen) and she shares a connection with them...(more papers pile in) Luna must now enter the dreams to protect her friends.
    (even more papers rise up from under Voice)

    Silver Quill: NOOOOOOOOOO!
    (cuts to Rainbow's nightmare)
  • Voice finally has enough, and tells Silver he's going to use the dirtiest word in a critic's vocabulary to describe Luna.
    Silver Quill: Dirtiest word in a critic's- Oh no! No, you don't mean THAT!
    Voice of Reason: Yeah, I'm using... the "o" word.
    Silver Quill: Ah, c'mon! You know how many Luna fans watch this channel? Plus I'm trying to go the waifu angle.
    Voice of Reason: Sorry Silver, but it's a sacrifice we all have to make.
    Silver Quill: But think of my dignity!
    Voice of Reason: What dignity?
