[doorbell rings] Coming! [door opens, Rarity's eyes are closed] Welcome to Carousel Boutique, where every garment is chic, unique and magnifique. [opens her eyes and gasps] Sapphire Shores! The Pony of Pop!
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Good afternoon, miss Rarity!
RARITY
You yah... Y-y-you know my name?
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Well, of course I do, darling. I make it a point to know all of the up-and-coming designers and Clothes Horse magazine simply raved about you.
RARITY
Oh my stars. If I'm dreaming, do not wake me up. How may I help you, Miss Shores?
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Oh please, call me Sapphire.
RARITY
[giggle] How may I help you, Sapphire?
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Well, as I'm sure you know, I'll be touring all of Equestria with my latest concert, SAPPHIRE SHORES ZIGFILLY FOLLIES so I need to look SEEENSATIONAL! OW!
RARITY
I have just what you need. Sapphire Shores, prepare yourself for the piece de résistance de la haute couture. I used every last diamond I found on this one garment.
SAPPHIRE SHORES
[gasp] And it is spectacular! I'll take it.
RARITY
Really?
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Oh yes, and five more, each done up in a different jewel.
RARITY
Beg pardon?
SAPPHIRE SHORES
Costume changes. [Rarity faints, Sapphire chuckles] Yes, I do have that effect on ponies.
