I'd like to be a tree...

In S1 Ep.21, "Over A Barrel" What did Rainbow mean when she called Fluttershy a tree? Was it that she wouldn't be moving on her own or something? And after that, Fluttershy said she would like to be a tree, but..... why? I'm assuming the only reason is that she would be one with nature, but I'd prefer to be something that can move and talk.

 

That was a pretty random scene as well...

It was a sarcastic remark. She had asked Pinkie if they were going to have to carry Applejack's tree(named Bloomberg apparently) all the way to the orchard, and Pinkie had a dense moment asked if Dashie meant Bloomberg and Dashie just felt like being sarcastic apparently and as we all know, sarcasm tends to be lost on Pinkie. Fluttershy, in her adorable way, just went along with it and said in a joking manner that she would like to be a tree.

Hmm, never thought of it that way. The way she said it always sounded sincere to me, plus she isn't really one to be sarcastic or play along with things like that. Either way, she's rather in tune with nature like that - I could imagine her loving a nest of baby birds in her branches.

I think Fluttershy WAS being sincere. I assumed she woke up and heard the others talking about whether or not she's a tree, and chimed in with her own two bits.

 

Personally, I'd like to be a cat, myself. x3

Oh that part made me laugh. I heard the line a few times before seeing the episode, but the context really helps the joke a lot. I know its meant to be funny/cute/whatever, but I can honestly imagine Fluttershy legitimately wanting to be a tree o-o Its just believable.

 

 

On another note, I download a lot of fan-made music, and there was one with that line "I'd like to be a tree" as one of the main parts of the song, and I played it while my friend and I were at the Gym and he was like "WTF is this?" and I told him, He complimented the song's editing when I told him it was made up of just random lines from the show. I got into showing him more and more of the random music I had downloaded and I finally got him interested in the show, and now he wants to watch it with me one of these nights.
