Narrator: "All the animals in Ponyville were very excited. There was to be a great banquet at the Scottish castle. Filthy Rich loved going to the Scottish castle because on the way, he puffed past his favorite tree. The tall pine tree towered of the rest of the forest. Filthy Rich always stopped to look at it. Seeing the tall pine tree standing tall and proud made Filthy Rich very happy.

Filthy Rich arrived at the Scottish castle. Hoity Toity was waiting for him."

Hoity Toity: "The castle's flagpole was old and about to break."

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "Filthy Rich, I need you to collect a new flagpole from the docks in time for the banquet."

Filthy Rich: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich.

When Filthy Rich puffed into the docks, he couldn't see the tall flagpole anywhere. He looked around for something tall. He looked above the changelings. There was nothing tall there. He looked at the old ship. It had a tall mast. Then Filthy Rich looked up and saw Gustave. Gustave was very tall. But Filthy Rich didn't see the flagpole. It was on the flatbed in front of him. It rolled onto the path."

(Cheese Sandwich runs over the flagpole)

Cheese Sandwich: "Oops. Sorry, matey."

Narrator: "Called Cheese Sandwich."

Filthy Rich: "I didn't expect to see the flagpole down there."

Narrator: "Puffed Filthy Rich."

Cheese Sandwich: "It's not tall when you lay it down, matey."

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich. Filthy Rich felt very silly.

Soon, Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "This is a disaster!"

Narrator: "He boomed."

Filthy Rich: "The Scottish castle will not look the same without its flagpole."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was very sad. It was all his fault."

Filthy Rich: "Maybe seeing the tall pine tree will cheer me up."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich huffed. But nothing could make Filthy Rich feel better."

Filthy Rich: "I wish I hadn't broken the flagpole."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich sighed to Braeburn."

Braeburn: "They could make a new flagpole out of that tall tree."

Narrator: "Braeburn puffed. Filthy Rich looked up at the tall pine tree. He didn't want it to be made into the flagpole.

The next morning, Filthy Rich had to take some workmen to the forest. But the workmen were carrying axes and saws."

Filthy Rich: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "Moaned Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "They must be going to cut down the tall pine tree."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich puffed through the countryside."

Filthy Rich: "Must save the tree, must save the tree."

Narrator: "He huffed. Then Filthy Rich had an idea. He didn't think workmen to the forest. He went to look for a new flagpole.

Filthy Rich saw some children waving flags, but those flags were much too tiny to have flagpoles.

There was a flagpole holding up the windsock at the airfield. But that flagpole was much too short.

There was a tall flagpole on the beach, but it wasn't tall enough."

Filthy Rich: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Wheeshed Filthy Rich sadly."

Filthy Rich: "None of the flagpoles are as tall as the pine tree. Now I'll never save it."

Narrator: "That evening, Hoity Toity came to see Filthy Rich at the library."

Hoity Toity: "Filthy Rich, those workmen had a very important job to do. You have caused confusion and delay!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity said sternly."

Hoity Toity: "Tomorrow you will collect coal, and Shining Armor will take the workmen to the forest."

Narrator: "The next day, Filthy Rich was collecting the coal when Spike arrived."

Filthy Rich: "I can't find another flagpole."

Narrator: "Moaned Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "I've looked everywhere."

Spike: "Sometimes the think you want is somewhere you wouldn't think to look."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike and he steamed away.

So Filthy Rich set off to go where he wouldn't think to look. But he couldn't see a flagpole in a cow field.

Then Filthy Rich looked in the orchard. But only Gummy was there."

Gummy: "Hello, Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Hello, Gummy. You're very nice."

Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "But you wouldn't make a very good flagpole."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich puffed sadly into the docks. Some vacationers were taking pictures of the old ship. Filthy Rich looked up at the tall mask."

Filthy Rich: "What about the ship's mast?"

Narrator: "Asked Filthy Rich."

Cheese Sandwich: "It's to be chopped up and used for firewood, me hearty."

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich."

Filthy Rich: "But it would be perfect for the castle flagpole."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich chuffed."

Cheese Sandwich: "Then you best take it quickly, matey."

Narrator: "Said Cheese Sandwich.

Gustave soon lowered the mast onto the flatbed. And Filthy Rich raced off to the forest. He had to get to the tree before they cut it down.

When Filthy Rich pulled into the forest, the tall pine tree was still there. And so was Hoity Toity."

Filthy Rich: "Please don't cut down the tall pine tree, sir!"

Narrator: "Chuffed Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "I think this ship's mast would make a very good flagpole."

Hoity Toity: "I would never cut the tall pine tree down."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "The workmen are only here to collect some firewood. We always have a roaring fire at the Scottish castle banquet."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was so happy it made his hooves tingled.

That night, the flag was hoisted on the old ship's mast. It looked wonderful. Filthy Rich thought it was the nicest thing he had ever seen, except for the tall pine tree."
