Narrator: "Flash Sentry is one of the oldest ponies in Ponyville. He collects things for Star Swirl in the castle. And he shows visitors around the estate. But Flash is very slow."

Prince Blueblood: "Move along, slow coach!"

Narrator: "One morning, after Prince Blueblood dropped the Duke and Duchess off for a visit to the castle, he saw Star Swirl talking to Flash Sentry."

Star Swirl: "Flash Sentry, I have a special job for you. Once a week, I need you to collect cones from the bakery and cream from the dairy. They are for our afternoon teas at the castle tea rooms."

Flash Sentry: "Oh, yes sir. I'll be the afternoon tea express!"

Prince Blueblood: "The visitors will wait a long, time for their afternoon tea if Flash Sentry is doing the job."

Flash Sentry: "I'll have you know they used to call me the Rocket because I was so speedy."

Prince Blueblood: "Ha! Compared to an earth pony and cart maybe."

Narrator: "This made Flash Sentry very cross."

Flash Sentry: "I'll show Prince Blueblood. I'll be the fastest afternoon tea pony there ever was."

Narrator: "So Flash collected scones from the bakery, and cream from the dairy.

As he puffed back to the castle, Flash thought was going very fast."

Flash Sentry: "Make way! Afternoon tea pony coming through!"

Narrator: "But Big Macintosh didn't think Flash was going very fast at all."

Big Macintosh: "Hurry up, slow coach! The real express pony is trying to get past."

Flash Sentry: "But I'm going as fast as I can."

Big Macintosh: "Well, I can't wait all day for you."

Narrator: "So Big Mac puffed right up behind Flash and gave him a push."

Flash Sentry: "Big Mac, what are you doing? Whoa! Careful! I'm an antique, you know!"

Narrator: "Big Mac pushed Flash faster than he had ever been before. And then they got to the castle junction, Big Mac slowed down so Flash could change paths."

Big Macintosh: "Now that's how an express pony goes."

Narrator: "Flash was cross.

When Flash got to the castle, Prince Blueblood was very surprised to see him."

Star Swirl: "My, my, Flash Sentry. That was quick. You really are the afternoon tea pony."

Flash Sentry: "You see, Prince Blueblood? I can be speedy. I'm still the rocket. Peeow!"

Narrator: "Each week after that, when Flash collected the scones and the cream, he got one of the animals to push him. One day, he was pushed by Spike.

The next day, he was pushed by Cranky.

And another day, he was pushed by Rarity."

Flash Sentry: "Whoa-ho-ho-ho! Wa-hey!"

Narrator: "Flash Sentry always got the cream and scones to the castle on time. Everybody called him the rocket again.

One day, Star Swirl had a very special job for him."

Star Swirl: "Hoity Toity and Princess Celestia are coming for afternoon tea at the castle today, but we are out of jam. So I need you to collect some more jam from the docks for me."

Flash Sentry: "Yes, sir. I'll be back in no time."

Narrator: "Flash puffed as fast as he could, and he collected his wagon from the docks. It was filled with lots of barrels of jam. There was strawberry, raspberry and even apricot jam.

But when Flash puffed back towards the castle, he couldn't find anyone to push him."

Flash Sentry: "Oh no. This is where I normally see Big Mac.

And this is where I normally find Spike. What am I going to do?"

Narrator: "The castle was still a long way away, and it would take Flash a very long time to get there."

Flash Sentry: "On no. It'll be dark by the time I get the jam to the castle."

Narrator: "But then, Flash found Prince Blueblood."

Prince Blueblood: "What are you doing here? I thought you were the rocket. Hoity Toity and Princess Celestia are waiting at the castle for their afternoon teas."

Narrator: "Flash Sentry had an idea."

Flash Sentry: "Um, maybe you can push me to the castle, Prince Blueblood."

Prince Blueblood: "Oh, I'm far too busy to push an old bucket of feathers like you around."

Narrator: "Flash was very old and very wise. That's why he knew exactly what to say to Prince Blueblood."

Flash Sentry: "Oh, don't worry, Prince Blueblood. I don't think you can push me fast enough anyway."

Narrator: "This made Prince Blueblood very cross."

Prince Blueblood: "I'll show you what fast is."

Narrator: "So Prince Blueblood walked up behind Flash Sentry."

Prince Blueblood: "Now you really will be the afternoon tea pony."

Narrator: "Prince Blueblood pushed Flash faster than Rarity. He pushed him faster than Spike. Prince Blueblood even pushed Flash faster than Big Mac had."

Flash Sentry: "Faster! Faster!"

Narrator: "Prince Blueblood pushed Flash right up to the castle junction."

Flash Sentry: "Thank you, Prince Blueblood!"

Narrator: "But as Prince Blueblood released him. Flash Sentry realized he had a problem."

Flash Sentry: "Oh no! I'm going too fast!"

Narrator: "Flash's driver and fireman tried to apply the brakes, but it was too late. He bumped into the buffers at the end of the path."

Flash Sentry: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "The barrels of strawberry, raspberry and even apricot jam flew into the air, then smashed to the ground."

Hoity Toity: "Oh!"

Princess Celestia: "Oh."

Star Swirl: "Ooh!"

Flash Sentry: "Uh oh."

Narrator: "Luckily, no one was hurt, but Hoity Toity was cross. So was Star Swirl."

Star Swirl: "Flash Sentry, what is going on?"

Flash Sentry: "Oh, I'm so sorry. I got Prince Blueblood to push me so I could go fast."

Star Swirl: "Flash, I chose you because you are reliable; not because you are fast."

Flash Sentry: "Sorry, sir. Maybe I don't need to try being speedy anymore."

Star Swirl: "No, Flash, you don't. But what am I going to do about the afternoon teas?"

Flash Sentry: "I know, sir. I have to go back and get some more jam, so why doesn't everyone hope on board, and they can have an afternoon tea and a tour at the same time."

Narrator: "Everyone thought this was a grand idea.

So Flash Sentry gave the guest a very slow and gentle ride to the docks. He collected the jam, and the passengers all enjoyed their afternoon tea tour."

Flash Sentry: "Pee-ooooh! Slow pegasus coming through. It's the afternoon tea pony."
