Narrator: "One day, Shining Armor was talking to Gummy when Hondo Flanks steamed by. He was working with some changelings."

Hondo Flanks: "Come on, Shining Armor! Stop gossiping in the sun when there's work to be done."

Narrator: "Later, Shining Armor spoke to Hondo."

Shining Armor: "Gummy and I are old friends, and you and he have a lot in common too."

Hondo Flanks: "We do?"

Narrator: "Quizzed Hondo."

Hondo Flanks: "And what would that be?"

Shining Armor: "Death."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor quietly. Hondo gasped."

Hondo Flanks: "Don't mention that word! It makes my hooves wobble!"

Shining Armor: "It does the same to Gummy."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "He was going to be killed, but the Vicar and I saved him and now he's really useful again. Even so, Hoity Toity certainly does need another pony here."

Hondo Flanks: "Aye, he does, and quickly."

Narrator: "That night, Hondo Flanks was still working. He had taken the midnight goods load to a station at a faraway part of Equestria where only the creatures worked. He was just arranging, ready for his return journey, when..."

Hondo Flanks: "That sounds like a pony."

Narrator: He thought. The hiss came again."

Hondo Flanks: "Who's there?"

Narrator: "Asked Hondo. A whisper came."

Dr. Hooves: "Are you a Hoity Toity's pony?"

Hondo Flanks: "Aye, and proud of it."

Dr. Hooves: "Well I'm Dr. Hooves, and I'm with my tortoise, Tank. We have no more strength."

Hondo Flanks: "But what are you doing?"

Dr. Hooves: "Escaping."

Hondo Flanks: "From what?"

Dr. Hooves: "Death."

Narrator: "Hondo shivered. Then, he remembered Shining Armor's story about saving Gummy."

Hondo Flanks: "I'll be glad to help you. It have look though that you're ready for death and I'm taking you away."

Narrator: "Their drivers and firemen agreed to help too. Everyone worked fast."

Hondo Flanks: "No time to turn around. I'll walk backwards. Come on."

Narrator: "But before they could clear the station, they were stopped."

Foreman: "Aha!"

Narrator: "Called the foreman."

Foreman: "An earth pony, and a tortoise too. You can't take these."

Hondo Flanks' Driver: "Aye, but there all for us."

Narrator: "Said Hondo's Driver."

Hondo Flanks' Driver: "See for yourself."

Narrator: "The foreman looked all over Dr. Hooves."

Foreman: "Seems in order. Right away, guard."

Hondo Flanks: "That was a near thing."

Dr. Hooves: "We've had worst."

Narrator: "Replied Dr. Hooves and they forged ahead.

It was daylight when their journey ended."

Hondo Flanks: "We're home!"

Narrator: "Cried Hondo Flanks."

Hondo Flanks' Driver: "Shh!"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Hondo Flanks' Driver: "There are the works. We'll find a place for Dr. Hooves."

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves said goodbye and thank you, and Hondo puffed away.

The next day, Hondo told the other animals all about Dr. Hooves."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hoity Toity will have to know."

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Big Macintosh: "Hondo should tell him at once."

Narrator: "Added Big Macintosh."

Hoity Toity: "Well, here he is."

Narrator: "Said a voice."

Hoity Toity: "Now, what's this all about?"

Soarin: "Beg pardon, sir, but we do need another animal."

Big Macintosh: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Ventured Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "A pony, sir."

Hoity Toity: "Well, unless one is saved from death, there's little hope."

Hondo Flanks: "But sir, one has."

Hoity Toity: "Yes indeed. And thanks to you, Hondo, he is now at our works. Dr. Hooves is just what we need for Soarin's route."

Narrator: "Everyone cheered.

Now Dr. Hooves and Tank are mended and given new coats. Soarin and Dr. Hooves are happy on their route. The others laughed at first and called it "The Little Pony". Soarin and Dr. Hooves were delighted, and so The Little Pony it will always be."
