"Why am I mad? Gee, I dunno. It's not like I lost my best friend from flight school or anything..."
"I'm not even mad, I'm just... Gilda was out of line, I'll admit, but we never got a chance to talk about it... What was up with her anyway...?"
"What WAS up with Gilda?"
"I don't know! We had a great time flying... I had been practicing for weeks to show her my new tricks, though I didn't get a chance to finish since Pinkie Pie kept showing up... I mean its cool, the pranks were fun, and... I didn't mean for all those pranks to hit Gilda! It was just a freak accident, and she could have been a better sport... or I could have warned her..."
"She didn't ask you what was going on, she just assumed it was Pinkie..."
"What was up with that?! I was hoping all my friends would get along, but... I know how Gilda can be sometimes, and they're surenot the kind of crowd we would have hung out with at flight school... Fluttershy's scared of her own shadow, and not much of a flyer to begin with... Twilight's egghead, and Rarity's kind of prissy... Pinkie Pie's more fun, but she can be too much Pinkie Pie sometimes... Applejack's a great athlete, but she can't fly and she thinks some of my stunts are just plain foolishness, and..."
"You want somepony to fly with..."
"...I had somepony, some griffon who came all the way here just to fly with me, and... did I make the right choice? I'm supposed to be the Element of Loyalty, but I ditch one of my oldest friends for some new friends, and..."
"You didn't ditch Gilda! You said it yourself, you wanted all of your friends to get along. Things just got out of hand at that party. Now maybe it wasn't Gilda's scene, maybe a griffon wouldn't like being cooped up in a building and surrounded by nothing but ponies, but Gilda is still responsible for Gilda. You still want to be friends with her, you'd probably drop everything and fly over there if she needed help, but she needs to learn that there's some things that just aren't cool. Loyalty doesn't mean you go along with every cruel joke or bad behavior your friends come out with, loyalty is something people earn. You're friends are good people, and I don't think staying loyal to them was the wrong decision, but I also understand what's really bothering you..."
"Oh really? What's that...?"
"You want to join the Wonderbolts. You want to soar through the sky as part of a team..."
"Come on, let's go to Fluttershy's house and you can practice migrating south with all the other silly geese..."
"I am not a silly goose! And what makes you think I want to fly south for the winter?"
"Who said anything about winter? I'm just trying to put together a flying V so you don't sit around here going "pfft!" like a duck with the waddling farts..."
