Narrator: "Snow came early to Ponyville. It was heavier than usual. Most animals hate snow. Night Light and Hondo Flanks 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..."

Filthy Rich: "Help! Help!"

Hondo Flanks: "Lorsh sakes, Night Light! It's Filthy Rich!

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

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The unicorns were looking glum. They told him Hoity Toity was making a decision."

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

Pipsqueak: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

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

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Macintosh."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "That Dr. Caballeron, too."

Narrator: "Put in Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Good riddance, That's what I say."

Filthy Rich: "The unicorns were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "It isn't fair!"

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

Pipsqueak 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.

Pipsqueak ran back quickly."

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

Big Macintosh: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "The question is.."

Filthy Rich: "What is a... desperation?"

Narrator: "Asked Filthy Rich."

Pipsqueak: "It's when animals tell Hoity Toity something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Soarin: "Did you say 'Tell Hoity Toity?'"

Narrator: "Asked Soarin thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Big Macintosh: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "That Pipsqueak be our... um... disputation."

Pipsqueak: "Me?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I can't!"

Filthy Rich: "Rubbish, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "It's easy.

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

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Mac.

Poor Pipsqueak wished it wasn't."

Hoity Toity: "Hello, Pipsqeauk. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak jumped."

Pipsqueak: "Uh, uh, yes sir, yes Sir, please sir."

Hoity Toity: "You look nervous, Pipsqueak. What's the matter."

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

Narrator: "Hoity Toity pondered."

Hoity Toity: "Do you mean a deputation, Pipsqueak?"

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

Hoity Toity: "Thank you, Pipsqueak. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Hoity Toity spoke to the animals."

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

Narrator: "He paused impressively."

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

Narrator: "The unicorns were surprised."

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

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

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

Narrator: "Hoity Toity smiled."

Hoity Toity: "It means..."

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

(All the animals cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The unicorns were here to stay."
