Narrator: "It was a beautiful morning in Ponyville. Spike the Dragon's purple coat sparkled in the sunshine as he walked happily along his path with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He was feeling very pleased with himself."

Pipsqueak: "Hello, Spike."

Narrator: "Whistled Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "You look splendid."

Spike: "Yes, indeed."

Narrator: "Boasted Spike."

Spike: "Purple is the only proper color for an animal."

Braeburn: "Oh, I don't know. I like my yellow fur."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "I've always been white. I wouldn't want to be any other color either."

Narrator: "Added Pipsqueak."

Spike: "Well, well, anyway,"

Narrator: "Huffed Spike."

Spike: "Purple is the only color for a - for a really useful dragon. Everyone knows that."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak said no more. He just grinned at Braeburn.

Later, Spike was resting when Pipsqueak arrived. A large hopper was giving his changelings coal. Spike was still being cheeky."

Spike: "Careful."

Narrator: "He warned."

Spike: "Watch out with those silly changelings."

Changelings: "Go on, go on!"

Narrator: "Muttered the changelings."

Spike: "And by the way,"

Narrator: "Went on Spike."

Spike: "Those buffers don't look very safe to me."

Narrator: "The last load poured down."

Spike: "Help, help!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "Get me out!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Spike's smart purple coat was covered in coal dust from head to toe."

Pipsqueak: "Ha, ha!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "You don't look really useful now, Spike. You look very disgraceful."

Spike: "I'm not disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Choked Spike."

Spike: "You did that on purpose. Get me out!"

Narrator: "It took so long to clean Spike that he wasn't ready in time for his next run. Braeburn had to take Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle."

Apple Bloom: "Poor Spike."

Narrator: "Whispered Apple Bloom to Sweetie Belle. They were most upset.

Spike was grumpy in the library that night. Braeburn thought it a great joke, but Pipsqueak was cross with Spike for thinking he had made his coat dirty on purpose."

Pipsqueak: "Fancy a really useful dragon like Spike becoming a disgrace to Hoity Toity's land."

Narrator: "Next day Spike was feeling more cheerful as he watched Pipsqueak bring his changelings from the junction. The changelings were heavy and Pipsqueak was tired."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Have a drink."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Then you'll feel better."

Narrator: "The water fountain stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Pipsqueak found he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either."

Pipsqueak: "Ooh."

Narrator: "Wailed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Help!"

Narrator: "The buffers were broken and Pipsqueak was hoof deep in coal. It was time for Spike to leave. He had seen everything."

Spike: "Now Pipsqueak has learned his lesson too."

Narrator: "He chuckled to himself.

That night the two animals made up their quarrel."

Pipsqueak: "I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Spike."

Narrator: "Whispered Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "You do know that, don't you?"

Spike: "Of course."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "And I'm sorry I teased you. Your white fur looks splendid again too. In future, we'll both be more careful of coal."
