Script

Act 1

  • (We open this episode with the Thomas and Friends Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is a really useful engine. Here's Percy. He is a very happy engine. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. Henry is long and fast. Here's Edward always here to help.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Baa!)
  • Alec Baldwin: In summer, the Island of Sodor gleams in the sun, and every station is filled with flowers. Percy had been working at the docks all day and was tired of the smell of fish.
  • Driver: Phew. Come on, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Time to go home.
  • Percy: Please sir, can I have a washdown first?
  • Driver: Sorry, Percy, there isn't time. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting for us at the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is to be a festival of flowers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Announced Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This sign saying "Best Dressed Station" will be awarded to the winner. Please help with the arrangements.
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines were excited.
  • Thomas: My favorite station is Ffarquahar.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Toby: Mine is Maithwaite.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: Percy, what's yours?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was too tired to think properly.
  • Percy: The docks.
  • Alec Baldwin: He murmured.
  • Thomas: Ha!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: We can tell.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby laughed.
  • Toby: The docks are filled with fish, not flowers.
  • Percy: All right then. Alresdale's End.
  • Toby: That's my home.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Toby.
  • Percy: That's why I like it, especially when you're there not here saying I'm silly. Good night.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, Percy was proud to be sparkling again. His train of freight cars were being loaded with vegetables and flowers.
  • Driver: These are for Maithwaite.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: They'll display them on the platform.
  • Alec Baldwin: On the way, Percy saw Harold.
  • Percy: Why is Harold buzzing about?
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought.
  • Percy: I haven't time for a race today.
  • Driver: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Why bless me, it's a ram.
  • Percy: Now we're being late! I've shouldn't know that Harold is trying to tell us something.
  • Ram: Baa!
  • Fireman: I've got just a ticket to get him off the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the fireman.
  • Fireman: Food.
  • Alec Baldwin: He found some cabbage leaves. The ram chomped happily away.
  • Percy: Please can we go now?
  • Ram: Baa!
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy arrived at the station, his driver told the stationmaster what had happened.
  • Stationmaster: I've heard about this ram. He's always hungry.
  • Alec Baldwin: A little while later, the station was decked with flowers.
  • Percy: Maithwaite will definitely win first prize.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Percy. He left his coaches and went to a siding where no one could see him.
  • Percy: (yawns) Time for a snooze.
  • Alec Baldwin: He thought. But it wasn't.
  • Driver: We better see what all that noise is about.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. Percy was shocked. Flowers were scattered everywhere.
  • Driver: It's that ram. He's made of meal out of the station too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then there was trouble.
  • Passengers: We can't get in to the waiting room!
  • Alec Baldwin: The passengers cried.
  • Stationmaster: Why not?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the stationmaster.
  • Passengers: The ram won't let us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone looked at the ram and the ram looked at them.
  • Driver: He's not alone.
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Percy's driver.
  • Boys: Let us out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Begged the boys.
  • Boys: We're sorry.
  • Stationmaster: Well, look at that!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: The boys are the culprits not the ram. He was just making sure they did know more damage.
  • Boys: We thought it would be fun but it wasn't. We'll put everything back.
  • Alec Baldwin: A few days later, Sir Topham Hatt invited some of the engines at Maithwaite, winner of the Best Dressed Station award.
  • Percy: I'm sorry, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Percy.
  • Toby: You made the right choice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then Sir Topham Hatt made an announcement.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There is one more prize for our good friend the ram. Here it is. And I'll eat my hat if you don't like it.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then Harold landed. The wind from his blades blew Sir Topham Hatt's hat off.
  • Ram: Baa! Baa!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, seems I wouldn't be able to eat my hat even if I had to.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone laughed and the only sound from the ram was a condented hiccup.
  • Ram: Hic.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby)
  • Children: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old train, a little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she's seen better days. His mind keeps returning to the good old days. When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.

Act 2

  • (Act 2 opens with James In A Mess)
  • George Carlin: Toby and Henrietta were enjoying their new job on the Island of Sodor, but they do look old fashioned and did need new paint. James was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • James: Yech! What dirty objects!
  • George Carlin: He would say. At last, Toby lost patience.
  • Toby: James?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Toby: Why are you red?
  • James: I am a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: Answered James.
  • James: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Toby: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby earnestly.
  • Toby: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • George Carlin: James went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be remind how the time the bootlace have been use to mend a hole in his coaches. At the end of the line, James left his coaches and got out to his next train. It was a slow freight, stopping at every station to pick up and set down cars. James hated slow freight trains.
  • James: Dirty cars from dirty sidings! Yech!
  • George Carlin: Starting an only a few, he picked up more and more cars at each station till he had a long train. At first, the freight cars behaved well, but James bumped them so crossly that they were determined to get back at him. Presently, they approached the top of Gordon's Hill. Heavy freight trains halt here to set the brakes. James had had an accident with cars before and should have remembered this.
  • Driver: Wait, James, wait!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver, but James wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he would say to Toby when they next met. The freight cars' chance had come.
  • Cars: Hurrah! Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: They laughed, and banging their buffers they pushed him down the hill.
  • Cars: On, on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the cars.
  • James: I've got to stop, I've got to stop!
  • George Carlin: Groaned James. Disaster lay ahead.
  • (James crashes into the tar wagons)
  • George Carlin: Something sticky splashed all over James. He had run into two tar wagons, and was black from smokebox to cab. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar wagons and some cars were all to pieces. Toby and Percy were sent to help and came as quickly as they could.
  • Toby: Look here, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Explained Toby.
  • Toby: Whatever is that dirty object?
  • Percy: That's James, didn't you know?
  • Toby: It's James' shape.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: But James is a splendid red engine and you'll never see his paint dirty.
  • George Carlin: James pretended he hadn't heard. Toby and Percy cleared away the unhurt cars and help James home. Sir Topham Hatt met them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Percy and Toby.
  • George Carlin: He turned to James.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Fancy letting your cars run away. I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen. You must be cleaned at once. Toby shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Toby: Please sir, can Henrietta have one too?
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly, Toby.
  • Toby: Oh thank you, sir. She will pleased.
  • George Carlin: All James could do as watch Toby as he ran off happily with the news.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Donald's Duck)
  • Children (singing): I found a quacker in my tender. She was very, very tame. But she quacked all night and through the day. She was driving me insane. My driver and my fireman tried everything they know to shoo the quacker away from me but she did not want to go. The quacker clearly loves me was impossible to nab. So now we have befriended her. She rides inside my cab. She quacks in stations big and small. She quacks at people too. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but I call her my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but I call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She is quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. She's my quackeroo, she's my quackeroo.
  • (Dilly quacking)
  • (Donald's whistle toots)
  • (We follow the commercials after Act 2)

Act 3

  • (Act 3 opens with Thomas and Percy's Christmas Adventure)
  • George Carlin: If someday you should see Thomas the Tank Engine puffing happily along the line, he may be on his way to a village nestled deep in the heart of the Island of Sodor. One November morning, Thomas whistled to all his friends.
  • Thomas: It's nearly Thanksgiving and I'll bring you lots of letters and parcels.
  • George Carlin: But then, an early snowstorm came. The island was covered with thick snow. The engines found work difficult. Some had to help clear snow from the track and workmen hacked away at the frozen banks of ice. Thomas and Percy were collecting important mail for Thanksgiving.
  • Thomas: Driver says there's of mail for the village.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll need an extra car for it all.
  • George Carlin: Percy was feeling left out.
  • Percy: It's not fair, you're not leaving any mail for me.
  • George Carlin: But Percy's chance had come.
  • Thomas' Driver: There's been a change of plan.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: Sir Topham Hatt needs us at the big station. Percy, you are to take Thomas' train to the village.
  • George Carlin: Percy was delighted, but Thomas was sad.
  • Thomas: I won't be able to say happy Thanksgiving to all my friends.
  • Percy: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy kindly.
  • Percy: I'll do it for you.
  • Thomas: It's not the same.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas. Percy was making good time on his way to the village when suddenly...
  • Percy's Driver: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. There ahead was a fogman by the line. He was holding a red light.
  • Fogman: The village is cut off by the snow.
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Fogman: We need snowploughs, workmen and a helicopter. Leave your cars on the sidings and go back quickly.
  • George Carlin: Percy was soon steaming to Harold's airfield.
  • Percy: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: Wake up, lazy-wings, the mountain villagers need your help. They're stranded.
  • Harold: With so.
  • George Carlin: Replied Harold.
  • Harold: I like an emergency to keep me warm.
  • George Carlin: And he buzzed away.
  • Percy: Now.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: What's next?
  • George Carlin: Suddenly, there was Thomas with Terence the Tractor and the works train.
  • Thomas: Come on, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Follow me.
  • George Carlin: The two engines battled their way through the snow. At last, they reached the village. Harold was already there busily dropping food for thanksgiving dinner to the people below. Terence quickly got to work.
  • Terence: Lovely stuff.
  • George Carlin: He said as he pushed the snow aside.
  • Villagers: Well done, Percy. Well done, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Cheered the villagers.
  • Thomas: Percy I just remembered. Your mail train is still back at the siding isn't it?
  • George Carlin: Percy hurried back to fetch it. Just then, Toby arrived with Henrietta.
  • Toby: We've brought lots of hot drinks and food for the villagers.
  • George Carlin: He whistled. That night all the engines had gone back to the sheds, except Toby. The villagers had made a plan to thank the engines. They loaded paint pots and parcels into Henrietta and then they set off through the moonlit countryside. All the engines were fast asleep in the sheds as Toby ran silently into the yard. He had no idea what the villagers were going to do, but he knew it was going to be a big surprise. When the engines woke the next morning they could not believe their eyes. The sheds had been repainted and decorated. The engines whistled in delight and everyone agreed that it was a really happy Thanksgiving.
  • (We Wish You A Merry Christmas plays)
  • (Engines whistling)
  • (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.
  • (Children laughing)
  • Children: (singing) White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Stay, stay, please stay.
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the A Britt Allcroft Company Production for Gullane Entertainment logo appears)
