Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Thomas Season 7 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is the number one blue engine. Percy is a really useful 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 Bad Day At Castle Loch)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a beautiful day on the Island of Sodor. Donald and Douglas are Scottish twins. They enjoy working on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. But sometimes, they longed for Scotland, their old home. One day, Sir Topham Hatt called them to the docks.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Lord Callan's castle was finally reopening. There is to be a grand celebration tomorrow. I need you to take the banners, buntings and bagpipes to the castle. Harvey, you must load them straight away.
  • Harvey: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Harvey. The twins were excited. Going to Lord Callan's castle would be like going home again. Soon, Harvey had finished loading the freight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Percy.
  • Donald: Lord Callan's castle.
  • Michael Brandon: Donald proudly announced.
  • Harvey: By Castle Loch.
  • Percy: I'm glad I'm not going to Castle Loch.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Percy nervously.
  • Douglas: Scared the monster might get ya.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Douglas.
  • Donald: You might.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Donald.
  • Douglas: There's no monster.
  • Donald: There is too.
  • Douglas: There is not.
  • Donald: It's too.
  • Douglas: It's not.
  • Donald: It's too.
  • Michael Brandon: Lord Callan's castle is in Misty Valley. Donald and Douglas were determined to get the important goods to the castle in time. They puffed proudly along the loch towards their destination.
  • Donald: There it is!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Donald.
  • Douglas: We're almost there!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Douglas. But there was trouble ahead, trees had fallen across the line. Donald and Douglas stopped just in time. Then, suddenly, there was a loud crash. The break van had been hit by the landslide and come off the rails. They were stuck.
  • Donald's Driver: We could take the causeway.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Donald's Driver. Douglas' Driver knew the causeway was old and rickety.
  • Douglas' Driver: It's too dangerous.
  • Michael Brandon: He said. The twins were worried.
  • Donald: We'll never get to the castle now.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Donald.
  • Donald's Driver: I'll call for help.
  • Tailor: Splendid outfit, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt was trying on his present for Lord Callan when he heard the news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Donald and Douglas trapped by the loch?
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll send help as soon as i can.
  • Michael Brandon: But the hours passed. It grew dark and cold and still no help had come. Suddenly, the twins spotted something strange through the mist.
  • Donald: What's that!?
  • Michael Brandon: Called Donald.
  • Douglas: Is it the monster!?
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Douglas.
  • Donald: For sure it is.
  • Michael Brandon: Answered Donald.
  • Harvey: It's not a monster, it's us.
  • Michael Brandon: It was Harvey and the breakdown crane. Donald and Douglas were relieved. By morning, the lines were cleared. Donald and Douglas hurried off to the castle. Lord Callan's workers were waiting to unload the freight cars. Soon, the castle was decorated. The grand opening was a great success. Lord Callan was pleased.
  • Lord Callan: A splendid pair of engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And very useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Donald and Douglas: Och aye!
  • Michael Brandon: Agreed the twins.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover)
  • Children: (singing) Thomas first saw Terence the Tractor plowing in a field one day and he said, "My oh my, you do look funny. Where are your wheels, are your wheels, are your wheels? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Terence the Tractor "I don't have wheels like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Thomas got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Terence the Tractor Now Thomas understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover. Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be. Don't judge a book by its cover Just remember the rule Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book.... By its cover!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin James and The Queen of Sodor)
  • Michael Brandon: The engines on the Island of Sodor want to be responsible, reliable and really useful. They are happiest when Sir Topham Hatt gives important work to do. James thinks his work is very important indeed. He is proud of his shiny red paint and likes to look clean and smart. One day, Percy puffed to the washdown.
  • Percy: My whistle's clogged.
  • Michael Brandon: He tried to blow hard to clean it out, but instead blew mud all over Gordon.
  • Gordon: Silly!
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon. Percy was trying not to laugh.
  • James: Keep your dirt away for me. I'm collecting the mayor today.
  • Gordon: I should do that.
  • James: Really!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuckled James.
  • James: You'd need a washdown first.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted Gordon. James just laughed. Soon, James had collected the mayor and puffed proudly away.
  • James: Just look at me, Gordon!
  • Gordon: Show off!
  • Michael Brandon: Muttered Gordon. Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to collect the queen of Sodor.
  • Thomas: Who's the queen of Sodor?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A leaky old barge.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: She needs to go to the workshops. It's dirty work I'm afraid.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, James shunted into the sheds. This gave Gordon an idea.
  • Gordon: Is collecting the queen of Sodor important work too?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Very important work. Do I have a volunteer?
  • James: Very important work!
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed James.
  • James: I'll do it!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then it settled. She's waiting at the canal.
  • James: Thank you, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James. Gordon was delighted. His plan was working.
  • James: I'm here to collect the queen of Sodor!
  • Michael Brandon: Announced James.
  • Yard Manager: There she is.
  • Michael Brandon: The yard manager said. James was furious.
  • James: That slimy old tub! Gordon tricked me, he wants me to get dirty. I'll show him. A shiny engine like me never gets dirty.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon James set off with the queen of Sodor. It was a long journey to the workshops.
  • James: Shiny and clean, shiny and clean.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed James. Then there was trouble. The tall funnel of the old barge crashed through a pipe. James was sure he'd get covered in sludge. But he didn't.
  • James: Shiny and clean, shiny and clean.
  • Michael Brandon: He declared again. The workmen soon cleared the mess and then James was on his way. He arrived safe and sound and pleased that the dirty work was done. When James returned to the sheds, he was very proud of himself.
  • Gordon: How did you manage to stay so clean?
  • James: I had to stay clean.
  • Michael Brandon: Boasted James.
  • James: In case there's important work to do.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, Percy returned from the quarry.
  • Percy: My whistle is clogged again. Watch out, James.
  • Michael Brandon: Gust went everywhere.
  • Percy: I did warn you.
  • Thomas: You'll need a washdown now.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas.
  • James: Good.
  • Michael Brandon: Snorted James.
  • James: It will make me reddier than ever. I'm such a splendid engine.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Harold and The Flying Horse)
  • Michael Brandon: Harold the Helicopter is glad not to be a steam engine. He is much happier flying in the sky than racing along on road or rails. One sunny morning, the engines were busy preparing for the Vicar's annual garden party.
  • Harold: I like to help.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Harold.
  • Harold: But I'm on patrol.
  • Michael Brandon: He was looking for engines that might be in trouble. Meanwhile, the engines puffed to and fro with their loads to the party. Percy was delivering deck chairs and decorations, tables and tea earns and reminders.
  • Percy: Don't forget to come to the Vicar's party.
  • Harold: Thanks for the invitation.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Harold.
  • Harold: But duty calls.
  • Michael Brandon: And he whirred away. Harold was landing at his airfield to get more fuel when he saw Pegasus the cart horse that lives close by. Pegasus was ready to give rides to children. He had a shiny leather hornest and a freshly painted cart. Harold was beginning to feel left out of the celebrations. He wished more than ever that he could help. Thomas puffed in with some passengers.
  • Harold: Where are you going next?
  • Michael Brandon: Buzzed Harold.
  • Thomas: To the Vicar's party of course. Everyone's going.
  • Harold: Everyone except me.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Harold.
  • Harold: I'm on duty.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas kindly.
  • Thomas: Being a rescue helicopter is important work.
  • Harold: But no one needs rescuing.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Harold. Then came the surprise. Harold's pilot recieved an urgent call from Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Pegasus is stuck in a ditch. If he doesn't get to the Vicar's party, the children will be disappointed. You must rescue him at once.
  • Harold: All set and ready for action.
  • Michael Brandon: Reported Harold.
  • Percy: Pegasus?
  • Michael Brandon: Wondered Percy.
  • Percy: That's a funny name for a horse.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's the name of a flying horse in a very old story.
  • Michael Brandon: Explained Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Percy: Flying horse!?
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Percy.
  • Percy: Horses can't fly.
  • Michael Brandon: He felt very clever. Harold flew to the rescue as fast as he could.
  • Harold: What happened?
  • Michael Brandon: He asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: We were loading the cart. Pegasus wondered off into the ditch. Silly Horse, now he's stuck. If you can take him, I can take the cart.
  • Harold: I'll put Pegasus in my sling.
  • Thomas: We need to hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: The party is about to begin.
  • Michael Brandon: And he steamed away. Soon, Harold's pilot had fitted Harold's sling under Pegasus. Then, Harold lifted him gently into the air and carefully carried him across the fields. When Percy saw Pegasus flying through the sky he was amazed.
  • Percy: Well flatten my funnel, so horses can fly after all.
  • Michael Brandon: The children cheered for Harold. He had saved the day. Soon, Pegasus was hitched up to the cart. The party was a big sucess and the children had a wonderful time. Harold was happy. He'd stayed on duty and had fun at the party too.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Gone Fishing)
  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
