  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was working in the coal yards. He was feeling bored and lonely with only the silly freight cars for company.
  • Driver: Cheer up, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Sir Topham Hatt has told me that we must be here again tomorrow. We've just got to get the best of a bad situation.
  • Percy: I'll try, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy. Next morning, the freight cars started teasing Percy.
  • Cars: Percy, Percy, green and small, he's no use to us at all, around the yard to puff and blow but on a hills, he's oh so slow!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Then he took the freight cars to the coal hopper to be loaded up. Percy still felt glum as he puffed up to the top of the hill. He parked his freight cars and then set off back down the mines. Not even a cheerful sight of Bertie the Bus could bring a smile to Percy's face.
  • Bertie: What's the matter, Percy?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bertie.
  • Percy: Nothing exciting ever happens. That's the matter.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: It's just coal coal coal and cars cars cars. I'm bored bored bored.
  • Bertie: Excitement is surprising.
  • Alec Baldwin: Observed Bertie.
  • Bertie: You never know when it'll happen. Overwise, it wouldn't be exciting. Toodle peep.
  • Percy: It would be surprising if something surprising happened.
  • Alec Baldwin: Muttered Percy. Later, he stopped by the water tower for a drink.
  • Toby: Hello, Percy. How are things?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby.
  • Percy: Boring.
  • Toby: Well, why not have a few spins on a turntable? You'll like that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I think it just make me feel giddy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver interrupted.
  • Driver: Stop gossiping, you two.
  • Toby: Cheer up, Percy. You soon know about cars than any other engine. That'll be exciting.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Toby. The freight cars were still grumpy and there was more of them then ever.
  • Cars: You much too small to pull one of us. We want another engine who would be struggling at the hill all night! All night, all right, you can puff and blow, but on a hill, you're still slow! Ha, ha!
  • Percy: Slow yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Stuttered Percy.
  • Cars: Temper, temper.
  • Alec Baldwin: Giggled the cars. Percy decided to simply carry on.
  • Driver: Go to it, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted his driver. The freight cars were still joking.
  • Cars: Too slow, more power, here all night, tomorrow too!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy angrily. Then there was trouble. A coupling broke.
  • Cars: Surprise, surprise! Catch us if you can!
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • (The freight cars speed away from Percy and pass Bertie)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver phoned the signalman and the yard forman told Sir Topham Hatt what was happening.
  • Yard Foreman: They're heading for the big hill! It'll slow them down but they roll back again right into the village.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then we'll just have to stop them, won't we?
  • Alec Baldwin: The chase was on.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie go after the runaway cars)
  • Alec Baldwin: As they approach the hill, they overtook the freight cars. Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie screeched to a halt, and waited for them near the top. The hill slow the freight cars right down to a stand still. Then the men quickly put wooden blocks behind their wheels so they couldn't roll backwards. The freight cars were now secured. Just then, Percy arrived.
  • Bertie: Well, what do you think of that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Joked Bertie.
  • Bertie: A good chase is always exciting.
  • Percy: It was certainly a surprise.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Percy.
  • Percy: And you are right, Bertie. A really useful engine should never be surprise by surprise.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Twin Trouble)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald and Douglas are Scottish twin engines. They are practical peppery and proud. They nearly always work together. One day, Donald and Douglas were chuffing through the countryside hauling a heavy load. Down the line, Trevor the Traction Engine had been struggling with a big cartload of hay. Crossing the tracks, the cart's wheels have broken off. Then Trevor heard a whistle.
  • Trevor: Oh no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Trevor cried. Donald could see the cart.
  • Donald: Stop!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. Donald's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late.
  • (Donald crashes into the cart)
  • Alec Baldwin: Luckily, no one was hurt.
  • Donald: Stop being pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald snapped.
  • Douglas: Don't call me pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas snapped back.
  • Donald: You shouldn't have pushed me into the cart.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald.
  • Douglas: You pulled me you mean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Argued Douglas.
  • Donald: Didn't!
  • Douglas: Did!
  • Donald: Did not!
  • Douglas: Did too!
  • Alec Baldwin: Before long the track was cleared and Donald and Douglas were on their way. The twins were so cross they refuse to speak to each other for the rest of the day. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt needed an engine to help Duck at the smelter's yards.
  • Donald: May I go, sir?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald eagerly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I only need one engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not two.
  • Donald: I am only one engine, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: And I would like to help with Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was surprised but agreed. Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: Won't you miss one another?
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I know I missed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Douglas: I'll work better on my own.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Douglas.
  • Donald: I have work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald. At first, Donald enjoyed working with Duck. Then, things started to go wrong.
  • Donald: Did you shunt those freight cars on the other line?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald asked.
  • Duck: You said you wanted them on the other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck replied.
  • Donald: Not that other line, the other other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald was cross.
  • Donald: Douglas would have known what I've meant.
  • Alec Baldwin: He huffed. Douglas was working on his own. He chuffed dutifully through the beautiful countryside. But Douglas had no one to share it with. Altough he tried not to he was beginning to miss his twin. That night, Douglas' Driver took him to see Donald.
  • Douglas: I was just passing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: Have you come to say you're sorry?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald sniffed. This made Douglas very cross.
  • Douglas: I've nothing to be sorry for.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and steamed away in a huff. The next day, Donald was in a bad mood. Duck could see he was getting too close for the buffers.
  • Duck: Look out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck shouted, but it was too late.
  • (Donald falls into a pit)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald's driver was very cross.
  • Donald's Driver: This would've happened if you were working with Douglas.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Donald knew he was right and Duck knew he couldn't pull Donald back onto the rails. So he went for help. Douglas was sadly finishing his work as Duck steamed into the depot.
  • Duck: Donald is in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Douglas: Donald in trouble?
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas cried.
  • Douglas: I'm on my way!
  • Alec Baldwin: And he steamed off as fast as he could. Douglas struggled and struggled, he finally pulled his twin gently back on to the tracks. He was relief Donald wasn't hurt.
  • Donald: Thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald said.
  • Donald: And I'm sorry.
  • Douglas: No, I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Insisted Donald.
  • Duck: Don't argue about who's sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: Just be glad you're back together.
  • Alec Baldwin: And they were.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Oliver's Find)
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver and his break van Toad liked working in the big yards, but one morning, Toad noticed that Oliver was unhappy. He decided to find out why.
  • Toad: Uh, excuse me, Mr. Oliver. It seems to me that things are not well with you, if you forgive for mentioning it.
  • Oliver: You're quite right, Toad. All I do is shunt these freight cars onto the turntable. I longed for a nice run. It's what an engine really means.
  • Toad: Uh, quite so, Mr. Oliver. May I suggest that you speak to Sir Topham Hatt about your problems.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Oliver said nothing. He just grew unhappier and he was rough with the freight cars.
  • Cars: You're no good, Oliver, you're dangerous. We want Percy.
  • Oliver: Percy's far too busy to be bothered with the likes of you.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Oliver bumped the freight cars hard.
  • (The freight cars fall into the turntable)
  • Workman: You silly engine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted a workman.
  • Workman: It'll take a long time to repair this turntable which'll cause confusion and delay!
  • Alec Baldwin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oliver, you had caused confusion. I thought you can control freight cars. You should work the mail train for a while. Maybe the night air will clear your smokebox.
  • Oliver: Yes, sir. Sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Oliver sadly.
  • Driver: Cheer up, old chap.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: The mail train run is a fine run for an engine like you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver smiled, but he still felt he had left everyone down. His driver took him along the coastal run with the mail train. The fresh air couldn't help but brighten Oliver's spirits. They made good speed until it was time to collect some important mail from Harold the Helicopter.
  • Oliver: Come on, Harold.
  • Alec Baldwin: At last Harold landed.
  • Harold: Sorry I'm late, great western. Had any uh bit of a problems with one of my arms. Kept letting me down when I was uh meant to be up. You know how it is.
  • Driver: We know that we'll be late for our first run.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Oliver's driver. Soon, they were on their way again. Ahead was a red signal light. Oliver didn't realized that the signalman had dozed off. Oliver whistled several times, but the signal stayed red.
  • Driver: There must be something wrong with that signal. We'll go slowly and stop by the signalbox.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. But they never reached it. The points before the signalbox were switched to an old track. They were going the wrong way. Oliver's fireman was concered.
  • Fireman: We need to find the watertower soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Instead they saw an old station. Disaster lay ahead.
  • (Oliver crashes into a shed)
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile, Sir Topham Hatt was worried.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oliver has not returned. We'll send out a search party.
  • Alec Baldwin: Soon he was high in the sky with Harold.
  • (Harold looks for Oliver)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There they are.
  • (Oliver is spotted and Harold lands)
  • Driver: It wasn't Oliver's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm aware of that. I'm just glad to see you were all safe.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then he saw something. It was an empty old house beside the station. He went to inspect it.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt checks the old house)
  • Alec Baldwin: When he returned, he spoke to Oliver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have found another attraction for our island. We'll make this house as good as new and visitors can have tea and prophets there.
  • Oliver: Hmm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Oliver.
  • Oliver: Getting lost can be interesting but being found can be much nicer. Especially what an engine feels really useful.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Harvey To The Rescue)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on Sir Topham Hatt's Railway love brendam docks. There's always lots of work to keep them busy. And they enjoyed seeing new arrivals onto the Island of Sodor. An exciting new arrival was an engine Cranky the Crane was unloading. It was heavy.
  • Cranky: This makes my chain ache.
  • Alec Baldwin: Groaned Cranky.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This is Harvey the Crane Engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said proudly. The other engines thought Harvey look strange. Harvey was happy to be on the ground. He didn't like dangling from Cranky's arm at all.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: These gentlemen are The Railway Board.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Tomorrow, Harvey will give them a demonstration. If it goes well, he will join the railway.
  • Percy: What's a Dimurstation?
  • Thomas: Demonstration.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Is when you show off what you can do.
  • Bertie: Like when Thomas and i have a race.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Vroom! Vroom!
  • Alec Baldwin: That evening, Thomas had just returned from a hard day's work. He saw Harvey parked near the sheds. Harvey could hear the other engines talking about him. This made him sad.
  • Henry: Harvey's different.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Edward: He doesn't even look like an engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: Surely Sir Topham Hatt won't let him pull coaches.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Gordon.
  • James: He's just Cranky On Wheels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • Percy: He's not taking my mail.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy. Thomas felt sorry for Harvey.
  • Thomas: Don't worry. Sometimes it takes time to make new friends.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey wasn't sure he wanted to stay when no one wanted him. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt sent the engines off to a useful day's work.
  • Harvey: Maybe might coming here wasn't a good idea, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey chuffed sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsene.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Harvey: But the engines don't like me. I'm too different.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Different is what makes you special.
  • Alec Baldwin: And that made Harvey feel better. Out on the branch line, Percy was having trouble with the trucks.
  • Trucks: Faster we go, faster we go. Pull him along, don't let him slow.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. His driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. He went off the rails at Bulgy's bridge. Luckily, no one was hurt. Bertie arrived and was pleased Percy was all right. But he was also very cross.
  • Bertie: You blocked the road!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bertie snapped. He was worried he wouldn't get the gentlemen of the railway board to the demonstration on time. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news, he went straight to Harvey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need you to rescue one of my engines.
  • Harvey: I'll do my best, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey said bravely and he set off immediately. Harvey soon arrived and set to work.
  • (Harvey lifts Percy back on the rails)
  • Alec Baldwin: In no time, Percy was back on the tracks. The gentlemen of the railway board were very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That was the demonstration of all. The gentlemen of the railway board have decided you shall join the railway.
  • Harvey: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey said proudly. That night, Harvey heard the engines talking again. This time it was different.
  • Gordon: Well done, Harvey.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Very useful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • Percy: You can take my mail.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Thomas: You see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Different can be good.
  • Alec Baldwin: All the engines agreed.
  • Engines: Welcome to the Sodor Railway!
  • Alec Baldwin: They called. Harvey smiled happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Elizabeth The Vintage Quarry Truck)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas the Tank Engine enjoys taking specials. Today, he was bringing a special to Brendam Docks. His load was to go onto the cargo ship. The ship was scheduled to depart at sundown. Thomas had to get to the docks before then. But the load was very heavy. So Thomas puffed as hard as he could. He pulled so hard he broke his coupling rods. He wasn't going anywhere.
  • Thomas: Oh, dear!
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Thomas: I'll be late.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver saw an old shed near the track.
  • Driver: If there's a telephone in there I could call for help.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Hurry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: And be careful. It looks spooky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then a voice boomed from inside the shed.
  • Elizabeth: Do you mind? I'm trying to sleep.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas hoped it wasn't a ghost, then his driver appeared.
  • Thomas: Is it a ghost?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas nervously.
  • Driver: It's a surprise.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver teased. Then the fireman took some of Thomas' coal and headed off to the shed.
  • Driver: She can get us to the fitter's yard.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver said.
  • Fireman: If her boiler holds.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added the fireman anxiously.
  • Thomas: What kind of surprise is that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas wondered.
  • Driver: Thomas, meet Elizabeth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. At last the doors opened and out chuffed a dirty grimy steam truck.
  • Elizabeth: So you're the little puffer that's broken down.
  • Alec Baldwin: She sniffed. Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: And you're just an old steam truck.
  • Alec Baldwin: He retorted.
  • Elizabeth: That would be vintage steam truck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: And I haven't much time for your coupling rods.
  • Alec Baldwin: The driver was concerned. Elizabeth was making awful grinding sounds.
  • Driver: She's not built for hills.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said anxiously.
  • Driver: You're losing steam.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called.
  • Elizabeth: Just catching my breath.
  • Alec Baldwin: Elizabeth chuffed. And finally, she made it. When Elizabeth returned with Thomas' coupling rods, she was pleased with herself.
  • Elizabeth: And next time don't be so careless.
  • Alec Baldwin: She scolded. Thomas thought Elizabeth was the rudest truck he ever met. But he was happy to get his new coupling rods. Thomas made it to the docks just in time.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What took you so long?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas told him about his broken coupling rods. He wanted to tell how rude Elizabeth was when she rolled up.
  • Elizabeth: Oh, it's you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Elizabeth looking down at Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Elizabeth: Have you learned to drive properly yet.
  • Thomas: She's in trouble now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said to his driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Elizabeth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt fountly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My first truck. I thought you have been lost.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were old friends. It was too much for Thomas. Then Elizabeth told Sir Topham Hatt how she'd been left in the shed for years. Sir Topham Hatt had been so pleased Elizabeth had been found. He asked Jem Cole to restore her to her original beauty. And soon Elizabeth had a rich dark color with gleaming coach works.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're the grandest truck in the whole railway.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Elizabeth: I know.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Elizabeth even more proudly. And Thomas had to agreed she did look grand.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy and The Haunted Mine)
  • Alec Baldwin: In the summertime, the branch line stationmasters enjoy a friendly competition for the most beautiful station on the Island of Sodor. The engines love to help too. One evening Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want Percy to collect some flower bushes from Lower Tidmouth Station.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They're at Maithwaithe.
  • Percy: Maithwaithe?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Percy: Y-y-yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He added nervously. Percy chuffed anxiously through the thickening fog. He doesn't like travelling to Maithwaithe at night. The line passes through a junction next to a spooky old quarry mine. Percy hoped the signal at the junction would be green. He didn't want to stop next to the mine. But the signal was red. He had to stop. Suddenly he saw something.
  • Percy: Bouncing buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. His driver hadn't seen the old chimney sink into the ground. The signal changed. Percy was so scared, he steamed away as fast as he could. The next day, Percy was telling Donald and Douglas about the disappearing chimney.
  • Donald: It's the naughty gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Donald.
  • Douglas: We fat men with big feet. They make strange things happen.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: It's legend. They steal your wheels and filch your funnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy didn't want to believe them, but he wasn't sure. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for Percy at Dryaw Station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to collect some freight cars from the abandoned mine.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Percy: Y-y-yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy answered. But he really didn't want to go there again. Percy hoped he wouldn't see anything else disappear. He slipped into the sidings and buffered up to the freight cars.
  • Percy: Spooky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Stammered Percy. Suddenly, another building at the old mine sank into the ground.
  • Percy's Driver: What was that?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted his driver.
  • Percy: Double bouncing buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shrieked Percy. He was so scared, he lurched forward and rammed the freight car.
  • Percy: Naughty gnomes!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. He steamed away faster than before, all the way back to Lower Tidmouth Station. Percy's driver told Sir Topham Hatt what they had seen.
  • Percy: It's the naughty gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: They like to cause trouble. It's legend.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The old buildings are collapsing at empty mine shafts. That's all.
  • Percy: But I saw the gnomes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Protested Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Of course you did.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Garden gnomes.
  • Percy: Garden gnomes?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: To decorate Lower Tidmouth Station.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: They're not scary. Garden gnomes bring good luck.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he ordered Percy to return immediately and get them. Percy was scared, but he knew he had to be responsible. So he carried on.
  • Percy: I'm not scared, I'm not scared.
  • Alec Baldwin: He waited for something else spooky to happen. But it didn't and Sir Topham Hatt was right. The garden gnomes weren't scary at all. His driver and fireman had collected the gnomes and Percy took them straight back to Lower Tidmouth Station. Later that week, the stationmanster thanked Percy.
  • Stationmanster: We wouldn't have won our competition without your garden gnomes, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was very proud.
  • Percy: You were right, sir, naughty gnomes can be lucky after all.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gordon Takes A Tumble)
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt's engines are proud of how useful they are. It makes them feel important. But none of them feels more important than Gordon.
  • Gordon: Watch out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon wheeshed.
  • Gordon: You'll get my paint all sooty.
  • Salty: Pulling freight cars is a sooty job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Salty.
  • Salty: But then you wouldn't know.
  • Gordon: Of course not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed importantly.
  • Gordon: Express engines don't pull freight cars it wouldn't be dignified.
  • Percy: Dingyfried?
  • Alec Baldwin: Puzzled Percy.
  • Percy: What's that?
  • Gordon: Dignified.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon corrected.
  • Gordon: It means...
  • Salty: It means if someone's too big for his buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Salty.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Gordon and he puffed away. That evening, fog covered the Island of Sodor. Everything slowed down and soon the docks were packed with waiting freight cars. This caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds. He was in a great hurry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Henry, Thomas and Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the docks inmediately.
  • Henry, Thomas and Percy: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: They whistled. Then Sir Topham Hatt turned to the big blue engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You too, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to take the freight cars where they won't be in a way.
  • Gordon: Freight cars!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon. He could not believe what he had heard. Gordon wasn't happy to be pulling freight cars. He waited impatiently while they were shunted into place.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, hurry up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Gordon crossly.
  • Thomas: Why the rush, Gordon?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: If I must pull freight cars then I'll show Salty how an express engine pulls freight cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed.
  • Salty: Careful, captain.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty tooted.
  • Salty: You don't wanna get too big for your buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Gordon ignored Salty. The next morning, Gordon raced along with his heavy load.
  • Gordon: Now this is how you pull freight cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: He puffed. The signalman had accidentally left the points switched to the branch line. Gordon rattled through the junction.
  • Gordon: That's strange, I'm on the branch line.
  • Signalman: Oh no!
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman cried.
  • Signalman: Express trains aren't supposed to go that way.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late. Gordon had already raced into the distance. The old branch line was weak and rusty. There were signs warning all the trains to go slow. But Gordon ignored the sign.
  • Gordon: I'm an express engine I don't go slow.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and he went even faster. The branch line couldn't take his weight and the rails buckled.
  • Gordon: Oh help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon cried as he slid off the tracks and into a field.
  • (Gordon runs over a pile of hay, towards some tires making him lose his tender and into a barn)
  • Alec Baldwin: No one was hurt, but poor Gordon felt very undignified.
  • Gordon: What will Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • Alec Baldwin: He groaned. He found out soon enough.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You wanted to show Salty a thing or two and you certainly done that. You showed him how silly it is to ignore go slow signs.
  • Gordon: Sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon and he let out a sad wheesh of steam. Gordon was soon repaired and back at the docks for work. He was very unhappy with himself.
  • Thomas: Everyone makes mistakes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Even you.
  • James: Salty's sorry he teased you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James.
  • Gordon: And I'm sorry I was too big for my buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Gordon. And all the engines gave a jolly toot even Gordon.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Dunkin' Duncan)
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey chugged cheerfully through the Sodor countryside. The engines were going to help Duncan with an important job at the incline railway. The engines enjoyed working at the incline railway. They like the way the loaded slate cars rolled down the incline pulling the empty slate cars up. But they are always careful. Duncan doesn't like working at the incline railway. He is always impatient to get back at the junction. This makes him careless and gets him in a lot of trouble. Rusty hoped Duncan would stay out of trouble today, but he was already in too much of a hurry.
  • Duncan: I'm a plain speaking engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gruffed Duncan.
  • Duncan: So collect your slate cars and be quick about it.
  • Alec Baldwin: And off he steamed.
  • Rheneas: Bossy boots.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Skarloey: Pushy puffer.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Skarloey. They didn't like Duncan telling them what to do.
  • Rusty: He just wants to get back to the bustle of the junction.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty said. Duncan wanted everyone to work faster.
  • Duncan: You're supposed to be helping me.
  • Alec Baldwin: He grumbled.
  • Duncan: But you're as slow as snails.
  • Rusty: We're proper engines.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty huffed crossly.
  • Rusty: We followed the rules.
  • Rheneas: We can't send up more than four slate cars at a time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Duncan: Then work faster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan impatiently. Later that day, Duncan was working at the incline.
  • Duncan: I'll show you how fast a really useful engine can work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan called as he hastily biffed one slate car into another and then another. Soon, Duncan had his four slate cars.
  • Duncan: Nothing to it!
  • Alec Baldwin: He boasted to Rusty.
  • Rusty: Those slate cars will pay you back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Warned Rusty.
  • Rusty: Slate cars don't like to be biffed.
  • Duncan: I can handle slate cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. The three little engines could see Duncan was not going to listen. They carefully chuffed away from the incline with their slate cars full of slate. Duncan was so impatient he became even more careless.
  • Duncan: I'll show that smelly diesel and those lazy steamers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: Careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cautioned his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: You're asking for trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he got it. Duncan didn't notice his chain was tangled in the coupling of the slate car in front of him. Suddenly, he was being pulled up the track by the empty slate cars.
  • Duncan: Bouncing bogies!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Duncan: It's got me!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan's driver jumped clear. Rusty returned to see Duncan being pulled up the incline.
  • Rusty: I tried to warn him.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty's Driver: He never listens.
  • Alec Baldwin: The little diesel's driver said. The chain pulling Duncan's slate cars couldn't hold the weight. It suddenly snapped. Duncan plummeted down the incline.
  • Duncan: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: He yelled.
  • (Duncan falls into a pond)
  • Duncan: Glub, glub, glub.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Duncan: Bluggle my bloiler.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan felt foolish and very wet. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived, he spoke severly to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have not been a responsible engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your impatience has caused confusion and delay and you owe these engines in apology.
  • Duncan: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan said to Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Once you have been repaired.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will work at the incline until you learned to be patient and careful.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan.
