I figures she ends up trading them to the nice colt in the unmarked white stagecoach for all his candy; because no one offering candy can be evil.

This episode should be good, though. However, I am surprised the Cakes would have Pinkie as a babysitter... I mean I'm sure they love her (who couldn't?), but Pinkie? Surely she's lived at Sugarcube Corner for long enough now that they're aware exactly how special she is. She's mostly just a big kid herself... but one who can bend reality on a whim and is more like a force of nature than a mere pony. On one hand I think Pinkie would make an awesome (or at least extremely fun) older-sibling-esque figure, but on the other... this is Pinkie we're talking about. It's a recipe for disaster, which of course should make for hilarity on TV.

Also, on right now is a babysitting-focused episode of Phineas and Ferb. Funny how that works.

Indeed. Dinky and Derpy fans will be pleased to see confirmation that one type of pony can produce another type of offspring. Well, unless Mrs Cake has been sleeping around but that's very unlikely.
Pound and Pumpkin Cake sure are powerful for one month old fillies. And how creepy was the part where Pinkie was looking for Pound Cake?! The lighting, the music, everything just made it seem very creepy. I was convinced Pinkie was dreaming or something.
A good episode I thought. Pinkie got a few little musical numbers (and a stand up comedy routine) but I was expecting her Smile song to make an appearance.

[Dvandom] 7:55 am: Also, unless that's a regional hospital, Ponyville has an insane birth rate.
[Dvandom] 7:56 am: "That makes sense, right?" (Nervous twitch)
[scavgraphics] 7:56 am: sigh..Derpy/Dinkers just got proof
[pao] 7:56 am: evidence, not proof
[Dvandom] 7:57 am: [Mythbuckers] PLAUSIBLE
[scavgraphics] 7:57 am: thank you..I've been awake for 4 minutes...synapses not all online yet
[pao] 7:57 am: ^that
[Rezo] 7:57 am: Earth pony family. Getting only pegasi & unicorns.
[pao] 7:57 am: that was funnier than what I said
[The Well]: Caboose has entered at 7:57 am
[scavgraphics] 7:57 am: pao, well, he's a scientist
[pao] 7:57 am: explains the importance of flight schools
[Caboose] 7:58 am: Ba-dop doop
[pao] 7:58 am: is an engineer
[Rezo] 7:58 am: senses parenting difficulties in the future.
[sobana] 7:58 am: I see you like filling in plot holes now, mr. Nayuki
[sobana] 7:58 am: Good show
[scavgraphics] 7:58 am: there was a plot hole?
[sobana] 7:59 am: I thought they wouldn't explain that they had kids all this time
[Dvandom] 7:59 am: No one in my immediate family has blue eyes, but I do. Genetic recessives do pop up. OTOH, being around Pinkie so much has probably irradiated the Cakes or something.
[Nayuki] 7:59 am: plot isn't really my job
[Caboose] 8:00 am: Now, who said Pinkie wouldn't be good with kids?
[Rezo] 8:00 am: I was entertained by Mr. Cake's 'I can't sleep, can't shave, TOO NERVOUS' look
[pao] 8:00 am: well, good at entertaining kids
[Caboose] 8:00 am: PARTY WATCH
[Dvandom] 8:00 am: Clearly, this ep will be all about how it's not just the playing, there's all sorts of responsibility.
[pao] 8:01 am: so did I catch that Pinkie Pie has a Pinkie Pie watch?
[Dvandom] 8:01 am: Someone will no doubt point out that horses don't burp.
[Dvandom] 8:02 am: The multiple stomach arrangement doesn't really allow for it, IIRC.
[Dvandom] 8:02 am: Angel is a demanding boyfriend.
[Dvandom] 8:02 am: (And the Cakes clearly know not to ask Pinkie....)
[pao] 8:03 am: yep, last pony standing
[Dvandom] 8:03 am: Of course, they work with her, so they know better than anyone.
[Dvandom] 8:04 am: (BOOM!)
[pao] 8:05 am: well, she's straight into "what was I thinking?" territory
[Dvandom] 8:05 am: Pretty sure a stack of cookies on the floor in front of the milk cooler breaks some health reg. (TrueMoo ad)
[sobana] 8:06 am: Rarity didn't give a reason why she wouldn't babysit, only my fanfic can explain that now!
[Rezo] 8:06 am: in b4 pinkie causes the entire mane cast to be involved, anyway.
[Rezo] 8:06 am: Btw, while I wouldn't exactly make pinkie my first pick, picking rainbow dash over her as a sitter was a low blow
[Dvandom] 8:06 am: In b4 Pinkie makes the parasprites look constructive.
[Rezo] 8:07 am: parasptrites are a vital part of the everfree ecosystem
[pao] 8:07 am: once you've unified the hoodie with the sweatpants, why not just include the feet, instead of making them a separate piece? (Forever Lazy ad)
[Dvandom] 8:07 am: Presumably they figured at least Dashie would know from Pegafillies.
[Dvandom] 8:08 am: RTFM
[Caboose] 8:09 am: There's your song, folks!
[Guardian Prime] 8:09 am: OINK OINK OINK!!
[scavgraphics] 8:09 am: as pigs are sentient...isn't this kind of racist?
[Rezo] 8:09 am: SURPRISE
[Caboose] 8:09 am: Pigs are sentient?
[Dvandom] 8:10 am: Pound Cake will definitely end up in Dashie's orbit at some point.
[pao] 8:11 am: youngest member of Scootaloo's Dash Fan Club?
[Caboose] 8:11 am: Uh.
[Dvandom] 8:11 am: Pound Cake is strong.
[pao] 8:12 am: d'ough!
[Caboose] 8:12 am: Did that baby just break a metal faucet?
[pao] 8:12 am: hits own rimshot like Pinkie
[Dvandom] 8:12 am: Pinkie in diaper
[Dvandom] 8:13 am: Ayuh
[Dvandom] 8:13 am: Twi has read a book.
[pao] 8:13 am: oh boy
[pao] 8:14 am: Pinkie feeling threatened much?
[Dvandom] 8:15 am: Been practicing the Flutterstare?
[Rezo] 8:15 am: srspinkie is efficient
[Rezo] 8:15 am: But prone of losing ponies
[sobana] 8:16 am: lol, I thought he was strong too when I saw him brake that metal faucet too.
[sobana] 8:17 am: Pinkie is out to prove something
[Dvandom] 8:17 am: Pound Cake will pound you.
[sobana] 8:17 am: I wonder if he only does that because they call him that.
[Dvandom] 8:18 am: Well, if he was kicking much in utero, they might have had an inkling.
[The Well]: WorkbenchManiac has entered at 8:19 am
[Rezo] 8:19 am: >spider toy hanging at the ceiling
[Rezo] 8:19 am: the cakes are awesome parents
[Dvandom] 8:19 am: And suddenly the mood shifts to horror story.
[Dvandom] 8:20 am: Pinkie Pie in The Shining....
[pao] 8:20 am: among all the modernish childrearing technology, we don't have baby monitors
[Dvandom] 8:20 am: Spidercolt, Spidercolt, does whatever a....I got nothin.
[Dvandom] 8:20 am: Scootaloo will be hellajelly.
[pao] 8:20 am: this is pretty much Poof from Fairly Oddparents right now
[Caboose] 8:21 am: Scootaloo confirmed for disabled pegasus?
[Dvandom] 8:21 am: At least Pinkie didn't land in the diaper bin. Yet.
[Dvandom] 8:22 am: At least Pumpkin was explained by Rarity's line about strange magic bursts.
[pao] 8:22 am: inverted playpen less effective than butterfly net
[Dvandom] 8:22 am: "Awww, we broke another sitter."
[Dvandom] 8:23 am: "Dear Princess Celestia: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
[pao] 8:23 am: to Pinkie's credit...saved it!
[Dvandom] 8:24 am: Now, will Pinkie tell them about the fact they missed baby's first flight?
[Rezo] 8:25 am: So... the baby unicorn is already showing raw talent at least on twilight's level, if not higher
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:25 am: alright, praise be to the hubs policy of showing the same episode twice
[sobana] 8:26 am: We learn a vaulable lesson on friendship this episode for sure.
[sobana] 8:28 am: I like how they decided to stick with this big headed baby model from the Rainbow Dash super hero episode
[Dvandom] 8:28 am: Epilogue: Pinkie Pie at the hospital, demanding The Pill, NOW.
[Dvandom] 8:28 am: "No, I'm not seeing anyone, but I'm not taking any chances!"
[sobana] 8:29 am: My dad called me back into the living room, he thought the next episode was a different one lol
[scavgraphics] 8:29 am: sobana..well they do have creepy baby toys
[scavgraphics] 8:29 am: was wokverine in that commerical?
[scavgraphics] 8:30 am: Hub has SHS?
[Dvandom] 8:30 am: Yes.
[scavgraphics] 8:30 am: since when?
[scavgraphics] 8:30 am: and interesting..
[Dvandom] 8:30 am: Actually, Hub has ads for the SHS MMO.
[scavgraphics] 8:31 am: but those are ads...this was wolverine and hulk in the hub toons commerical
[Caboose] 8:31 am: D'aaaaw, pony babies are so adowable
[Dvandom] 8:31 am: Pinkie's watch reads out "Me Time".
[Dvandom] 8:32 am: Pound Cake already knows kung fu,.
[sobana] 8:33 am: You'd think Pinkie would have a better grasp of the situation after spending the day with the Cakes taking care of their kids and all.
[scavgraphics] 8:34 am: I like Rarity's refusual
[Dvandom] 8:34 am: You went astray at "Pinkie would have a better grasp of the situation" for any value of situation or grasp.
[Rezo] 8:35 am: All things considered, I do like that they show Pinkie's more serious side without going overboard like in Party of One.
[sobana] 8:35 am: Would this explain why we haven't seen Ms. Cake in the last few episodes because she was with fowl?
[Rezo] 8:35 am: She HAS feelings that can be hurt or frustrated
[Dvandom] 8:35 am: With foal. Scootaloo's mom was with fowl.
[The Well]: Caboose has left at 8:35 am
[Dvandom] 8:36 am: Question answered, Scav.
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:36 am: that pun drove him away...
[scavgraphics] 8:36 am: yup
[sobana] 8:36 am: o.o
[sobana] 8:37 am: He is going to delete you from his heartdrive now
[Dvandom] 8:37 am: Oh, and Forever Lazy doesn't have footies built in because they WANT you to wear it with shoes out in public.
[Dvandom] 8:39 am: Even the baby Cakes find pig ethnic humor dubious.
[Rezo] 8:40 am: Surprise again~
[sobana] 8:40 am: any way, I'm off to play tor, you cats have a wonderful day, laters! =D
[The Well]: sobana has left at 8:42 am
[Rezo] 8:45 am: >twi's nose getting quished in a little bit as the door's thrown shut
[Rezo] 8:45 am: adorable~
[Dvandom] 8:46 am: Pound and Pumpkin are to pegasus and unicorn like Gohan is to Saiyans. Homeopathic ponies...the less genetics you have, the more potent the results.
[pao] 8:48 am: there are genetic situations kind of like that though; only one I can think of off the top of my head is sickle-cell carriers, but I believe there are other examples
[Rezo] 8:48 am: hee
[Dvandom] 8:50 am: They're the Richards kids, Franklin and Valeria.
[The Well]: WorkbenchManiac has left at 8:51 am
[Dvandom] 8:51 am: Pinkie just happens to have chains available, too.
[Dvandom] 8:52 am: And duct tape.
[Dvandom] 8:52 am: Her off-screen parties must get...interesting.
[scavgraphics] 8:53 am: oh, who doesn't have duct tape availble at any moment?
[Rezo] 8:55 am: A good question.
[Rezo] 8:55 am: I do.
[Rezo] 8:55 am: Chains are a different matter, though
[The Well]: Rezo has left at 8:59 am
[The Well]: Nayuki has left at 9:00 am
[pao] 9:00 am: yep, 'bout that time, eh?
[The Well]: Guardian Prime has left at 9:01 am
[scavgraphics] 9:01 am: yep breakfasty time
Confound these ponies, they drive me to photoshop!

Things I liked: Pony genetics
The Cakes asking everypony else BEFORE Pinkie. And asking Fluttershy FIRST.
Pinkie using toon gags to help her: Plunger walking, pulling things out of hammerspace, offscreen teleportation...
Refusing Twilight's help out of pride. Something I would do by accident myself.
Frazzled Pinkie: Something adorable about that.
Pinkie toning down her energy and WORKING during the letter. Sure, things can be fun and games, but sometimes it's WORK.
As for why Pound Cake can fly, perhaps weight ratios? He doesn't weigh enough to keep him grounded? Perhaps Scoots hasn't grown into her wings yet.
Pumpkins casting must be instinctual. She probably can't do it on command once she gets older, and she probably has the power from the mentioned spell surges.
Hold up, did Pinkie ever put the diapers back ON? Oh, THAT can't end well....
