Narrator: "The animals in Ponyville are very friendly. And no one is more friendly than Braeburn. Braeburn is a happy smiling earth pony with lots of friends. There's Twilight Sparkle at the quarry, Cheese Sandwich at the docks and Spike. They're all Braeburn's friends.

One day, Braeburn had finished all his jobs early. He was going to spend the afternoon at the farm. Braeburn loved visiting the animals. As he was about to leave, Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "Braeburn,"

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "I have three special jobs. As you have finished early, you will have time to do all of them."

Braeburn: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Puffed Braeburn. Braeburn was worried. He liked being useful, but three jobs would take him the rest of the day. Now he will have no time to go to the farm.

Braeburn puffed off. He felt sad. But then, he had an idea. Perhaps he could get everything done in time."

Braeburn: "All I need is some help with just one of my jobs. I'll ask one of my friends."

Narrator: "Braeburn's first job was to arrange some changelings at the yards. As he arrived, he saw Twilight."

Braeburn: "Twilight will help me."

Narrator: "He thought."

Twilight Sparkle: "Sorry, Braeburn. No time to talk."

Narrator: "Twilight puffed as she steamed passed him. Braeburn was upset. He was sure Twilight would help him."

Braeburn: "I'll just have to arrange the changelings on my own."

Narrator: "He puffed sadly.

Next, Braeburn had to collect some empty wagons from the depot. As he arrived, Spike was leaving."

Braeburn: "Spike!"

Narrator: "Called Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Wait! Will you help me take some wagons?"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn."

Spike: "Sorry, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Chuffed Spike."

Spike: "I'm in a hurry. I'll help you later."

Narrator: "And Spike raced away. Braeburn was surprised. Twilight and Spike both rushed off very quickly. Now he would have to take the wagons to the Coaling Plant himself. It was getting late. Toby was worried he wouldn't get to the farm. And he wouldn't get to see the animals.

Once Braeburn had delivered the wagons, he rushed to his last job at Ponyville Docks."

Braeburn: "Perhaps my friend, Cheese Sandwich will help me."

Narrator: "But as Braeburn arrived, Cheese Sandwich was rushing towards him."

Braeburn: "Cheese Sandwich!"

Narrator: "Cried Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Stop, please! I have to help Gustave unload lots of cargo."

Narrator: "Puffed Braeburn."

Braeburn: "But I'm running out of time. Will you help me?"

Cheese Sandwich: "Sorry, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich."

Cheese Sandwich: "But I have an important delivery. These bandages are too important to wait, matey."

Narrator: "Braeburn felt miserable. He knew deliveries were important, but he thought helping a friend was important too. Neither Twilight Sparkle, Spike or Cheese Sandwich had helped Braeburn."

Braeburn: "And I thought they were my friends."

Narrator: "Puffed Braeburn sadly. He would have to move that cargo on his own. Now he'd never get to the farm.

Braeburn pulled up alongside Gustave."

Gustave: "What are you waiting for?"

Narrator: "Cranked Gustave."

Braeburn: "I'm here to pick up the cargo."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn sadly."

Gustave: "The ship's been caught in the rough seas."

Narrator: "Gustave snapped."

Gustave: "The cargo won't be here till morning."

Narrator: "Braeburn was delighted. Now he'll have time to get to the farm. So he raced off.

Then, Braeburn saw Filthy Rich in a siding."

Filthy Rich: "Where are you going in such a hurry?"

Narrator: "Wheezed Filthy Rich sadly. Braeburn told him all about wanting to go to the farm, and all about Twilight and Spike and Cheese Sandwich."

Braeburn: "I thought friends help each other."

Narrator: "Braeburn wheeshed."

Braeburn: "But they were all too busy to help me."

Filthy Rich: "That's because they've all been helping me."

Narrator: "Puffed Filthy Rich. Braeburn was surprised."

Filthy Rich: "I got hurt."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "So Twilight brought my special medicine, Spike took my passengers and Cheese Sandwich brought me some bandages."

Narrator: "Braeburn knew he had made a mistake. Twilight, Spike and Cheese Sandwich had been helping a friend after all."

Braeburn: "They were all helping you!"

Narrator: "Gasped Braeburn. Braeburn felt very silly."

Braeburn: "Is there anything I can do to help you, Filthy Rich?"

Narrator: "He asked. Filthy Rich was surprised."

Filthy Rich: "But then, you won't get to the farm to see the animals."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Braeburn: "It doesn't matter."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Helping a friend is much more important. What can I do?"

Narrator: "Filthy Rich asked Braeburn to take his buffaloes to the town hall. Filthy Rich's buffaloes were very, very heavy."

Braeburn: "I don't know if I'll be able to move them."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Braeburn: "But I'm going to try."

Narrator: "Braeburn hooked up to the buffaloes. He heaved and hauled, and puffed and pulled. At last, Filthy Rich's buffaloes began to move. Filthy Rich was very pleased."

Filthy Rich: "Thank you, Braeburn!"

Narrator: "He called as Braeburn puffed away."

Filthy Rich: "Sorry about your afternoon off."

Narrator: "But Braeburn didn't mind. He was helping a friend, and that was better than an afternoon off any day."
