It's quite a long hallway, and talking is a free action, so they have plenty of time to have an epilogous conversation while the foreground ponies are walking up to the dais.

The intent of this conversation was to not-very-subtly imply that if these ponies hadn't gotten involved, although the ultimate outcome of the film storyline may have been the same, the actual events 'depicted' would have been quite different.  Exactly how different, I don't particularly care to speculate - it's hard enough keeping two sets of circumstances straight as it is.

As earlier noted, Wind Whistler is the only one of the five who isn't consciously medium-aware on some level, but she does seem to have an innate understanding of when she would fit better into the frame flying or on the ground.

"For flying into the face of danger, and destroying the Nightmare Moon, you get the highest honors!"
"For causing gross management errors that made our job easier, then saving the lives of all the imperial stormtroopers so that they can continue to attack us in force... you can just go stand in the back there."

Playing with the Forth Wall....

Ohh, I see where they are! I got it when I saw Can Soda's Corellian Ale (clean glass!) cutie mark....

You know, being a Background Pony (person) isn't that bad. Granted, I do like the occasional fame or recognition (like most), but I work so much better when, as a good friend once said, "the man in the rear with the gear." I'll step up to help at a single moment, that's all I need.

This scene is actually kind sad when you think about it :(. They were so unreconized for their efforts.

It's a staple of comedy that good or even vital deeds by minor characters go unrewarded (or even chastised).  The previous page was a dig at the film for not giving Chewbacca a medal too :)

Ah yes you may be background ponies but without you there is no foreground. Foreground exist because of background so with out background the comic would be boring. Also being in the background lets you work in the shadows and are able to do more things. So never think you are unneeded because you are needed, to work from where the heroes can't or shouldn't.

That was a lovely sentiment up until the point that it morphed into Assassin's Creed...

But it is so true, lol. Being in the background they can do more good and eliminate what needs to be so the heroes can shine as they should, lol.

The background's where you put it. The only difference between being trapped in the background and working from the shadows, for example, is a choice of attitude.

Hey.  I could have said something like "When Pinkie breaks the fourth wall, it's good as new with Twilight Spackle."

And now I did.  Shame on you for making me :P

I kept wanting to quote Negima on this page ("Everyone's the main character of their own story"), but figured that was too meta even for this lot.

It also sound like Mayor Mare in episode 100th. XD
