  • Michael Brandon: Something in the Air. One day, Thomas was at the keyside of a small village. Fish were being loaded into his cars. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Michael Brandon: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Michael Brandon: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, they saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Michael Brandon: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the Driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Michael Brandon: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, i'll tell them to close the line.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry was waiting for Thomas' cars.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: It's the fish!
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Pah! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my cars hitched to my train.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. He was steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What rude is Henry taking tonight?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But i told you!
  • Michael Brandon: Gasped the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Michael Brandon: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Michael Brandon: The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. And when he could, it was too late.
  • Henry: Whoa!
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Michael Brandon: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them. You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Henry: Pah!
  • Michael Brandon: Hissed Henry. But there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Michael Brandon: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry i was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Henry happily.
