This is my favorite kind of magic!
In MAGIC.MOV, Twilight Sparkle and Spike needed to find a way resurrect the dead corpse of Rainbow Dash (who was supposedly murdered by Fluttershy in the the previous episode). At the lab, Twilight revealed to Spike that she had built a robot-replica of Rainbow Dash, known as the R-Dash 5000. When she activated the robot, it came to life; only to have it constantly repeating its catchphrase ("Crush! Kill! Destroy! Swag!"), walk towards the wall, shoot its laser at it, and fly outside so it could help Discord and Wolflor (who was previously summoned by Twilight, by accident) destroy Ponyville.
After that, Twilight and Spike went back to the cemetery to dig up Rainbow's dead corpse and took it back to the lab so they could bring it back to life in a Frankenstein-like fashion. Twilight (now wearing a white lab coat, safety goggles, and black rubber gloves) then told Spike that they shouldn't tell "anypony" about this, until he interrupted her by saying how he can't stand how people use the term, "anypony." The experiment soon began as a giant lightning rod popped out of the library's roof, Twilight snapped jumper cables as Rainbow's nipples, and Spike pulled the switch when the lightning hit the rod.
As soon as the experiment ended, Rainbow's corpse (which gained an Afro, due to the powerful shock of the lightning), unfortunately, still stayed dead. Twilight claimed that she thought it would work because it does in movies. In response, Spike said, "I guess it's true what they say. There really is no sense in beating a dead horse." After posing for the rimshot, Twilight handed Spike the shovel and told him to go bury Rainbow's corpse again. As soon as Twilight exited the lab, Spike took an angry look at the body, whacked it with a shovel (for not getting him a birthday present that year), and then did as he was told.
