Narrator: "Snow came early to Ponyville. It was heavier than usual. Most animals hate snow. Hondo Flanks and Night Light were used to it. Back to back, with a cart behind them and a shovel for each of them, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forwards, patrolling the roads.

Generally, the snow slipped away easily, but sometimes they found deeper drifts.

Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try, when..."

Zephyr Breeze: "Help! Help!"

Night Light: "Lorsh sakes, Hondo Flanks! It's Zephyr Breeze!

Don't worry yourself, Zephyr Breeze! Wait a while, we'll have you out!"

Narrator: "Zephyr Breeze was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The unicorns were looking glum. They told him Princess Celestia was making a decision."

Hondo Flanks and Night Light: "She'll send us away for sure!"

Spike: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Big McIntosh: "A lot of nonsense about a broken signal box."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big McIntosh."

Flash Sentry: "That Dr. Caballeron, too."

Narrator: "Put in Flash Sentry."

Flash Sentry: "Good riddance, That's what I say."

Zephyr Breeze: "The unicorns were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Zephyr Breeze."

Zephyr Breeze: "It isn't fair!"

Narrator: "They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what.

Spike decided to talk to Shining Armor about it."

Shining Armor: "What you need,"

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor,"

Shining Armor: "Is a deputation."

Narrator: "He explained what that was.

Spike ran back quickly."

Spike: "Shining Armor says we need... a, a depot station!"

Big McIntosh: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big McIntosh: "The question is.."

Zephyr Breeze: "What is a... desperation?"

Narrator: "Asked Zephyr Breeze."

Spike: "It's when animals tell Princess Celestia something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Braeburn: "Did you say 'Tell Princess Celestia?'"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Big McIntosh: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big McIntosh: "That Spike be our... um... disputation."

Spike: "Me?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Spike."

Spike: "I can't!"

Zephyr Breeze: "Rubbish, Spike."

Narrator: "Said Zephyr Breeze."

Zephyr Breeze: "It's easy.

Big McIntosh: "That's settled, then."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Mac.

Poor Spike wished it wasn't."

Princess Celestia: "Hello, Spike. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Spike jumped."

Spike: "Uh, uh, yes Princess, yes, please, Princess."

Princess Celestia: "You look nervous, Spike. What's the matter."

Spike: "Please Princess, uh, they've, they've made me a desperation, Princess. Uh, to speak to you, Princess. I don't like it, Princess."

Narrator: "Princess Celestia pondered."

Princess Celestia: "Do you mean a deputation, Spike?"

Spike: "Yes, Princess, please. Uh, it's Hondo Flanks and Night Light. They say, Princess, that if you send them away, well, they'll be killed, Princess. That would be dreadful, Princess. Uh, please, don't send them away."

Princess Celestia: "Thank you, Spike. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Princess Celestia spoke to the animals."

Princess Celestia: "I've had a... a deputation. I understand your feelings and I've given a lot of thought to the matter."

Narrator: "She paused impressively."

Princess Celestia: "Hondo Flanks and Night Light, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall each have some new clothes."

Narrator: "The unicorns were surprised."

Hondo Flanks and Night Light: "Thank you, Princess."

Princess Celestia: "But your clothes will have your names printed on them. We'll have no more mistakes."

Hondo Flanks and Night Light: "Thank you, Princess. Uh, does, does this mean that the both of us..."

Narrator: "Princess Celestia smiled."

Princess Celestia: "It means..."

Narrator: "But the rest of her speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles."

(All the animals cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The unicorns were here to stay."
