    Ruminations:
    I've said it, and I've said it a hundred thousand times if I've said it once: Flea markets and trade shows are dens of iniquity, filled to the brim with ancient evils, and poorly made rugs! Repent! Repent for the end is neigh! Seriously, though, this should be an interesting episode. More slice-of-life stuff before we get to the finale episodes, of which I have managed to keep myself completely in the dark. [/once more, implied threat]

    Very darling. And... I hope this doesn't count as a spoiler... we saw an earth pony in a wheel... well it wasn't a chair...

    I noticed the pony in the wheel harness as well, which means Equestria does have disabled ponies. I love that message of inclusion.

    What a wonderful episode! Just another slice of life where we see the fun interactions between various ponies. This episode has a great message, and I can't wait to see the follow up on EqD, which will definitely have a "best face" contest for this episode, which had so many great ones.

    Favorite moments:

    * Using the "Bear Call"
    * Dash and Flutters slinging burgers
    * Applejack and Rarity arguing over who wants the most useless "antique."
    * Also, their subsequent argument over who is the better friend.
    * Fluttershy d'awwing over a ferocious two headed dog.
    * The Discord Lamp
    * Carnival Barker Pinkie ramping up the hype on Twi's books.

    All in all, a wonderful episode with many excellent character moments. This one gets an "A" from me. :D

    I also loved seeing Twilight leading without having to ditch her friends. I loved seeing her judge the dispute!
