oh, sorry. Didn't notice this had been accepted. 

Anyhow, my argument is short. Perfect Pear is the best episode of my little pony, because of its simple yet excellent story. Everyone knows Romeo and Juliet, a classic Shakespeare play that basically infers about biases and rooted assumptions. Even the Bible tells us "everyone wants to be loved" (https://www.proverbs31.org/read/devotions/full-post/2017/10/10/everyone-wants-to-be-loved). Therefore, it can be said that the episode is most people can sympathize with. The message is also fantastic as it tells us to look past what others assume is true and listen to your own heart. Through the episode, it's clear Grandfather pear regret his actions he took against his daughter, and encourages people to rethink their biases.

The ending of Perfect Pear is also incredibly powerful. As seen through many clips (https://youtu.be/XpXYWfy5LSU?t=1363https://youtu.be/eAAQa24YdIk?t=2312), countless fans have cried over the reunion and the final scene. Unless my opponent shows an episode which has powerful impact as this one, then I'd say Perfect Pear is the best. Finally, Perfect Pear has the highest rating out of any MLP episode ever (https://www.ratingraph.com/tv-shows/my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-ratings-38803/). It's obvious that fans like it. Even if "best" is subjective, the quality which people rated this clearly shows that it's the best episode.

Thanks selidora,

My opponent argues that the Perfect Pear is the best episode because of it's excellent story. However, he is not the authoritative figure on that. All I must do is prove that in all cases, The Perfect Pear is the best.

Being "the best", is impossible. In order to be "the best", you must be "the best" at every aspect. 

The Perfect Pear is not the "best" and being the "worst". 

So, if it is not the best at being bad, that means the Perfect Pear is not the very best MLP:FIM episode.  

As I said before, the word "best" is paradoxical, and there is no way to prove it.


------------------------------------------------

Lets take a look at the definition of best:
"the highest quality".

That means, The Perfect Pear must be the best at every quality. Like I said before, this is impossible. 

The Perfect Pear is NOT the best at being the worst. You can provide multiple cases in which the Perfect Pear isn't the best-
  • It is not the best at supporting Donald Trump
  • It is not the best at supporting Racism
  • It is not the best at supporting Suicide.
Therefore, it can't possibly be the best. This is because the best is completely paradoxical.

I rest my case.
