  • Michael Brandon: It was mayday on the Island of Sodor and the engines were celebrating. They knew they'd be music and lots of fun. The station was being decorated. Sir Topham Hatt said that the engines could be decorated too.
  • Percy: I'm going to have flags and streamers.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Percy.
  • Thomas: I'm going to have a big red banner.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Murdoch: What decorations will you have, Gordon?
  • Michael Brandon: Asked Murdoch.
  • Gordon: Decorations aren't dignified for an important engine like me. I pull the express.
  • Michael Brandon: Gordon was feeling insulted.
  • Gordon: (chuckles) Silly little engines.
  • Michael Brandon: He grunted. Thomas was enjoying himself. He was bringing the maypole. The farmer's children waved. Thomas peeped happily as he passed by. Soon, it was time for the decorated. Percy's driver was wrapping streamers and flags around his funnel, Thomas had a big red banner on his tanks, even Murdoch was being decorated. Although he was very shy about it.
  • James: We can have a contest for the best dressed engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Suggested James. Just then, Gordon shunted in.
  • Gordon: A contest?
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed.
  • Gordon: I'm bound to win any contests.
  • James: You will have to be decorated.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James.
  • James: This is a best dressed engine contest.
  • Gordon: Not me.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You never catch me looking so ridiculous.
  • Michael Brandon: The engines felt splendid. But not Gordon. He was cross.
  • Gordon: Decorations aren't dignified. Huh! Who cares about a contest anyway?
  • Michael Brandon: Further down his line a colorful banner was strong across the bridge. Then, as Gordon steamed across the bridge, it came loose and wrapped around his firebox. Gordon couldn't see the line ahead. Gordon tried to whoosh the banner off but it wouldn't budge.
  • Gordon: I can't see!
  • Michael Brandon: He whistled loudly to his driver.
  • Gordon: Stop!
  • Gordon's Driver: You can't stop, Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: His driver called back.
  • Gordon's Driver: You're the express.
  • Michael Brandon: Trevor was chugging slowly along with his load of apples for the children's apple bob. Trevor heard a whistle. He was going as fast as he could, but it wasn't fast enough. The apples were all smashed. James was the last engine to join the contest, or so he thought.
  • Passengers: Here comes Gordon.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the passengers.
  • Thomas: We didn't think you wanted to be decorated.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas.
  • Gordon: I didn't.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Gordon.
  • James: Well you're definitely the best dressed engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said James. All the engines agreed. Gordon was secretly pleased, but he didn't think it was dignified to say so. Silly Gordon.
