  • Michael Brandon: It was a beautiful fall day on the Island of Sodor. All the engines will working very hard. Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth Sheds. He had exciting news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon is to take the new Mayor of Sodor on a special tour of the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He announced. Gordon was thrilled. But then he had thought.
  • Gordon: Who will take the express, sir?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked. The other engines were excited. Pulling the express was an important job. Everyone wanted to be chosen, but Sir Topham Hatt chose Emily. When Sir Topham Hatt left, Emily was very happy. But Gordon wasn't impressed.
  • Gordon: The express is the long as passenger train on the island.
  • Michael Brandon: He sniffed.
  • Gordon: I always cross the island twice by teatime. You'll never do that.
  • Emily: I've got big wheels and I'll do my best.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Gordon: Big wheels don't make a big engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Boasted Gordon.
  • Gordon: Everyone knows I'm the best.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas thought Gordon was showing off.
  • Thomas: Twice before teatime.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Thomas: That will be hard.
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily wasn't listening to Thomas.
  • Emily: I'm going to be as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: She said eagerly. And she steamed away as fast as she could. Emily puffed into Knapford Station. She was looking forward to taking the express, but it was very very heavy.
  • Emily: Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: She gasped and she slowly pulled out of the station, but she pulled away too soon and left the brake coach behind. Emily puffed with all her might. She was determined to be fast. Emily had crossed the island once in good time.
  • Emily: I am as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed proudly. Emily had to wait for Edward at the crossing. Edward went as fast as he could, but it wasn't fast enough for Emily.
  • Emily: Hurry up, slowcoach.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Emily: Or you will make me late.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward felt sad but Emily just steamed off. Emily stopped at Maithwaite Station. The express was a guaranteed connection with Bertie the bus. But Bertie hadn't arrived. He had a flat tire and was running late. Emily tried to wait. She counted to ten twice, but she felt as if her boiler would burst.
  • Emily: I'm going to be the slowest engine on Sodor.
  • Michael Brandon: She cried.
  • Emily: And it's not my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: And she puffed away. When Bertie arrived, Emily had already left. Emily need to take on water. But James was at the water tower. He was pulling a slow goods train. Emily wanted to go first.
  • Emily: It doesn't matter you were late.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • James: You must wait your turn.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James crossly.
  • Emily: Express trains don't wait.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily and she left without taking on water. Emily went faster than ever. Her coaches rocked and rolled. And her passengers were biffed and bumped and bounced. Finally, Emily could see Brendam Docks up ahead.
  • Emily: Twice before teatime.
  • Michael Brandon: She puffed happily.
  • Emily: I am as good as Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Then there was trouble. Emily slowed down.
  • Emily: What's happening to me?!
  • Michael Brandon: She cried. She went slower and slower. Emily had run out of water. She huffed and puffed, but she had no steam left. Finally, Emily came to a complete stop. Sir Topham Hatt arrived on board James. He was very cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You should have waited.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And now you have caused confusion and delay. You left the brake coach, stranded Bertie's passengers and bumped your coaches. You must learn to be more patient.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily knew Sir Topham Hatt was right. She felt very bad. She was only trying to be as good as Gordon.
  • Emily: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She said sadly. James pulled Emily into the docks. Then, he went back to collect the express.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now I need an engine to take the slow goods train.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Emily had an idea.
  • Emily: Make I take it, sir?
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Emily: If I had to go slowly?
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt thought it was a grand idea.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The slow goods train needs lots of patience.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. Emily was pleased. She was determined to do a good job. So after she took on water, and lots of coal, Emily buffered up to the slow goods train. She stopped at all the right stations. And then she left all the other engines go first. She stopped at a signal. Thomas was waiting there.
  • Emily: Hey, Thomas, I am learning patience.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily puffed.
  • Emily: But if only I can learn it faster.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas had to laugh.
