This is the part when Tino first plays the game and meets Tiffany in Tino and the Real Girl.
[Cut to Pinkie Pie's house. Tino played one of his new games into his computer's CD tray.]
Tino: I’ll finish that game later now to…hey wait, what’s this? “Romantic Academy”. I must have accidently bought it when I bought 2 games. Hey there’s a note. What does it say? "Destroy at all costs." What does this not mean? I wonder. Oh well…time to play this game anyway.
[Puts in the game into his computer’s CD tray. A "Year 2000 Electronics" logo appears on the monitor.]
Tino: Man, I can't wait for the year two-thousand.
[The monitor shows the main menu for "Romantic Academy 7." the options are "Start", "Quit", and "Shizenhakka" (romanized Japanese meaning "spontaneous combustion").]
Tino: Ehh, start! (Reading the game's introduction text) "When the cherry petals of magic romance academy are in bloom... anything can happen." That is so true.
[The game screen changes to one with a classroom background and some stats on the left. A pink-haired girl appears.]
???: Oh, hi there! My name is Tiffany. I'm a schoolgirl at School University. Will you help me carry my books?
[The game gives the options "Yes of course!", "I am impatient! Date me now!" and "Hey look a squid!".]
Tino: I'm really feeling number two, here. (Clicks it) Click! (The game plays a buzzer sound and the option turns red) Ah! I mess up.
Tiffany: That's okay. Try again!
[Tino clicks the first option. The game awards him 100 "Love Points" as coins and a cat fall in front of the screen.]
Tino: Wow, I'm learning! And games are making it fun.
Tiffany: What would you like to talk about?
[The options offered are "Your interests," "Samurais" and "Squids."]
Tino: I'd rather just click your face. (Clicks her face)
Tiffany: Ha ha. You are so funny.
Tino: Man, this game is amazing! I don’t know why anyone abandoned it.
Tiffany: And I'm sure you'll never abandon me, new boyfriend.
Tino: Boyfriend? Oh man, Tiffany. It’s almost like you’re actually alive
Tiffany: Yes. Almost. (Laughs throughout the rest of the scene)
Tino: (Laughs) Oh, man. You have such a nice laugh.
[The scene show that Tino's computer isn't plugged in.]
[Cut to Canterlot High in the next day]
Twilight Sparkle: Hey, have you guys seen Tino? He’s supposed to be in school today.
Pinkie Pie: Yeah! I wore my motivational sweater and everything thing! (Sweater reads "U can do it Tino. Points to the first o in Tin, which is misplaced) I messed up that part.
Carver: We haven’t seen him, yet.
Sunset Shimmer: He didn't come in today. It's the first time he's missed school today!
[Twilight Sparkle and the others look at each other]
[Cut to Pinkie Pie's house. Twilight Sparkle and the others enter Tino's room. Tino is still at his computer.]
Tino: (Laughs) So that's basically my entire life story. Now you tell me a thing about you!
Tiffany: Every time you compliment me I get another highlight in my eyes!
Tino: Uh, you're pretty!
[Tiffany’s eyes sparkle.]
Tino: And pixel-y!
[Tiffany’s eyes sparkle more.]
Tino: And so agreeable!
[Tiffany’s eyes sparkle even more and stars, planets, hearts and cat faces appear in them.]
Fluttershy: Uh, Tino?
Tino: O-oh hey guys! Come in! This game is amazing. I'm making eye contact, going on dates, and I haven't seen any natural sunlight for six hours!
[Rarity kicks away one of the soda cans on the floor.]
Rainbow Dash: Tino, maybe it's time to apply these skills with real girls!
Tino: But I'm about to meet her parents! Her dad is an octopus-man.
[Carver opens the blinds to let sunlight in]
Tino: Ah! (Hisses and cowers under desk)
Peter Pan: (Pulling Tino) We're going back to the mall, man. You need to unplug!
Tino: I'll see you later, Tiffany. I'll be back, I swear!
Rainbow Dash:Tino, you don't have to wish it goodbye. It's just a game. It's not like it's going anywhere. (Closes door)
Tiffany: Yes. It's not like I'm going anywhere.
[An arc of electricity moves from the computer and passes through a nearby toy, a digital clock and a power outlet before traveling through the power cables outside.]
