- Ringo Starr One day, BJ was waiting at the station when Riff with his wagons came in. This made him cross.
- BJ: Late again!
- Ringo Starr: Riff laughed and BJ firmed away. After BJ finished his work went back to the school and went onto the merry-go-round. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
- BJ: Riff is impossible. He clanks about like a lot of old iron. And he is so slow, he makes us late.
- Ringo Starr: Barney and Danny were indignant.
- Danny: Old Iron? Slow?
- Barney: Why, Riff can beat you in a race anyday!
- BJ: Really?
- Ringo Starr: Said BJ.
- BJ: I should like to see him do it!
- Ringo Starr: Next morning, Boomer was suddenly taken ill. He can hardly move. So the fireman unhooked BJ ready for homework. BJ was impatient.
- BJEricCartmanandDrewPicklesFan: I like BJ as James because they're both awsome and better than everybody.
- BarneyandFriturtoonsFan: I like Ringo Starr's US narration, and I also had made a Friturtoons series that has episode titles to every episode from each season.
- JamesDieselEricCartmanandScottTenormanFan: Can you do a Barney/Thomas parody of A Big Day For Thomas, please?
