Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin A Big Day For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine was grumbling to the other engines.
  • Thomas: I spent my time pulling coaches about ready for you to take out on journeys.
  • George Carlin: The other engines laughed.
  • Thomas: Why can't I pull passenger trains too?
  • Gordon: You're too impatient.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Gordon: You'd be sure to leave something behind.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll show you.
  • George Carlin: One night, he and Henry were alone. Henry was ill. The men worked hard, but he didn't get better. He felt just as bad next morning. Henry usually pull the first train and Thomas had to get his coaches ready.
  • Thomas: If Henry is ill.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Thomas: Perhaps I shall pull his train.
  • George Carlin: Thomas ran off to find the coaches.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He fussed.
  • Coaches: There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time!
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. Thomas took them to the platform and wanted to run round at once. But his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Driver: Don't be impatient, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Thomas waited and waited. The people got in, the conductor and stationmaster walked up and down, the porter banged the doors and still Henry didn't come. Thomas got more and more excited. Sir Topham Hatt came to see what was the matter, and the conductor and stationmaster told him about Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Find another engine.
  • George Carlin: He ordered.
  • Both: There's only Thomas.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You'll have to do it then, Thomas. Be quick now.
  • George Carlin: So Thomas ran round to the front and back down on the coaches ready to start.
  • Driver: Let's not be impatient.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll wait till everything was ready.
  • George Carlin: But Thomas was too excited to listen. What happened then, no one knows. Perhaps they forgot to couple Thomas to the train, or perhaps the Driver pulled the leather by mistake. Anyhow, Thomas started without his coaches. As the pass the signal tower, men waved and shouted, but he didn't stop.
  • Thomas: They're waving because I'm such a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought importantly.
  • Thomas: Henry says it's hard to pull trains, but I think it's easy. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, pretending to be like Gordon.
  • Thomas: People had never seen me pulling a train before. It's nice of them to wave.
  • George Carlin: And he whistled.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Then he came to a signal at danger.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Thomas: I must stop, and I was going so nicely too. What a nuisance signals are.
  • George Carlin: He blew an angry "Peep peep!" on his whistle. The signalman ran up.
  • Signalman: Hello, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Signalman: What are you doing here?
  • Thomas: I'm pulling the train.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can't you see?
  • Signalman: Where are your coaches then?
  • George Carlin: Thomas looked back.
  • Thomas: Why bless me.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Thomas: If we hadn't leave them behind.
  • Signalman: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You better go quickly and fetch them.
  • George Carlin: Poor Thomas was so sad he nearly cried.
  • Driver: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's go back quickly and try again.
  • (Thomas reverses back to the big station)
  • George Carlin: At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Sir Topham Hatt what a bad railway it was. But when Thomas came back, they saw how sad he was and couldn't be cross. He was coupled to the train, and this time he really pulled it.
  • (Thomas pulls the coaches away with ease at all)
  • George Carlin: Afterwards, the other engines laughed at Thomas and said...
  • Henry: Look! There's Thomas, who wanted to pull the train, but forgot about the coaches.
  • George Carlin: But Thomas had already learned, not to make the same mistake again.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Island Song)
  • Children: (singing) Picture a land where the sky is so blue. A storybook land of wonder. A magical island just waiting for you. Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Imagine a place where the sun always smiles. The valleys are green as can be. The friends that you love are all waiting for you. Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Children follow the dream. To the land of make-believe. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true.
  • Girl: Follow the road that leads to a dream over the hills and mountains. Look for the skies with stars in their eyes.
  • Children: (singing) Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Children follow the dream. To the land of make-believe. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Edward Helps Out)
  • George Carlin: One day, Edward was in the shed where he live with the other engines. They were all bigger than Edward and boasted about it.
  • Gordon: The driver won't choose you again.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wants strong engines like us.
  • George Carlin: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Edward.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Edward: Oh yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward. So they lit his fire, made lots of steam and Edward puff away. The other engines were very cross of being left behind. Edward worked hard all day. The coaches thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased.
  • Edward: I'm going out again tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Edward told the other engines that night.
  • Edward: What do you think at that?
  • George Carlin: But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy that he fell asleep at once. Next morning, Edward woke up to find nothing had change. Gordon was still boasting.
  • Gordon: You watch me, little Edward, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you. Goodbye, little Edward. Look out for me this afternoon.
  • George Carlin: Edward went off to do some shunting. He like shunting. It was fun playing with freight cars. He would come out quietly and gave them a push. Then he would stop, and the silly freight cars will go bump into the each other.
  • Cars: Oh!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Cars: Whatever is happening?
  • George Carlin: Edward played till there were no more freight cars. Then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. Gordon was very cross. Instead of pulling shiny new coaches, he was pulling a dirty freight train.
  • Gordon: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Gordon can't get up the hill.
  • George Carlin: The porter called to Edward's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Edward and push him please?
  • George Carlin: They found Gordon halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severly.
  • Driver: You're not trying.
  • Gordon: I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The noisy freight cars hold an engine back so!
  • George Carlin: Edward's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Gordon: No use at all!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edward: I'm ready.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: No good.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Gordon: I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Edward: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. Edward pushed and puffed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Gordon found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Gordon: I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: He said proudly. He forgot all about kind Edward and didn't say thank you. Edward was left out of breath and far behind, but he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink and the driver said.
  • Driver: I'll get out my paint tomorrow, and give you your beautiful coat of blue with red stripes, then you'll be the smartest engine in the shed.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining)
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Life is full of surprises, full of ups and downs And so to have a silver lining, first there must be cloud. Bill and Ben the twins work together all day long. They sometimes disagree how things are done. They get down in the dumps If things they do don't work out just as planned. But if at first you don't succeed then understand. There's no sense in worrying if things start going wrong. Obstacles can all be overcome. But even Bill and Ben both agree that in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. So if you've got a job to do, make sure you do it well. Arguing will get you nowhere fast. When Bill says "Push", and Ben says "Pull", They always get it wrong. But never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. Everybody makes mistakes it happens all the time. You should never lose sight of your goal. Just like Bill and Ben things will work out in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. When you're feeling down it doesn't help to wear a frown. Never lose hope, you're sure to cope and you can carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined to help you on your way. As long as there's hope, it'll help you cope. You must never lose hope, it'll help you on the way.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Terence The Tractor)
  • George Carlin: Autumn had come to the Island of Sodor. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth and an tractor was hard at work as Thomas puff along. Later Thomas saw the tractor close by.
  • Terence: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said the tractor.
  • Terence: I'm Terence, I'm plowing.
  • Thomas: I'm Thomas, I'm pulling a train. What ugly wheels you got.
  • Terence: They're not ugly, they're caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Said Terence.
  • Terence: I can go anywhere. I don't need rails.
  • Thomas: I don't want to go anywhere.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I like my rails, thank you.
  • George Carlin: Winter came with dark clouds full of snow.
  • Driver: I don't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us.
  • Thomas: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Soft stuff, nothing to it.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed on feeling cold but confident. They finished their journey safely but by now the country was covered.
  • Driver: You need your snowplough for the next journey, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Huh! Snow is silly soft stuff it won't stop me.
  • George Carlin: The snowplough was heavy and uncomfortable and made Thomas cross. He shook it and he banged it and when they got back it was so damaged that the driver had to take it off.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Thomas. Next morning, Thomas' driver and fireman came early and worked hard to mend the snowplough, but they couldn't make it fit. Thomas was pleased.
  • Thomas: I shan't have to wear it, I shan't have to wear it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Annie and Clarabel. But they were rather worried.
  • Annie and Clarabel: I hope it's all right, I hope it's all right.
  • George Carlin: They whispered to each other. The driver was worried too.
  • Driver: It's not bad here.
  • George Carlin: He said to the fireman.
  • Driver: But it's sure to be deep in the valley.
  • Thomas: Silly soft stuff.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I didn't need that stupid old thing yesterday and i shan't today. Snow can't stop me.
  • George Carlin: He rushed into a tunnel thinking how clever he was. But there was trouble ahead.
  • (Crash)
  • Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm stuck.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Driver: Back, Thomas, back.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Thomas tried but his wheels spun and he couldn't move. The conductor went back for help while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slipped down until Thomas was nearly buried.
  • Thomas: Oh, my wheels and coupling rods. I shall have to stop here till I'm frozen. What a silly engine I am.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas began to cry. At last the bus came to rescue the passengers. And then who should come to Thomas's rescue but Terence. Snow never worries him.
  • (Terence hooks up to Clarabel and pulls her and Annie out of the snow)
  • George Carlin: He pulled the empty coaches away, then came back for Thomas. Thomas' wheels were clear but still spun when he tried to move. Terence tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged and at last dragged Thomas clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Terence goes away into the tunnel with Thomas following him)
  • Thomas: Oh, thank you, Terence. Your caterpillars are splendid.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Driver: I hope you'll be sensible now, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas and he puffed slowly away.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Snow Song)
  • Children: (singing) You wake to the silence the bright afterglow. Now there's a surprise for what do you know. It's snowing. Look, it's snowing. Little Jack Frost has been busy last night. The Island of Sodor is a blanket of white 'Cause it's snowing. Yes, it's snowing. White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Snow, snow, snow, snow. There in the valley someone you'll know. The little blue train finds his way through the snow. Whistle blowing. Yes, it's snowing. It's a beautiful world; It's a lovely day. Cherish this moment, remember this day 'Cause it's snowing. Yes, it's snowing. White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow.
  • (Children laughing)
  • Children: (singing) White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Stay, stay, please stay.
  • (Following this song, we go to the outro with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While the end credits roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (Afterwards, the A Britt Allcroft Production logo appears as we end this episode)
