  • (We open this video with the Anchor Bay FBI Warning)
  • (We are then followed by the 2004-2007 Anchor Bay Entertainment logo)
  • (The 2001 HiT Entertainment logo is the third to appear)
  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Duck Takes Charge)
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Gordon: What?
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • Gordon: Silly!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger engine to help me.
  • James: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Any engine could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • George Carlin: Percy went off to get some coaches.
  • Percy: That stupid old signal.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Percy: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little engine and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look tired.
  • Percy: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my dome or on my wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look the right way up to me.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up. The new engine is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Thomas and Toby will help too.
  • Percy: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: The new engine arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Duck: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Duck. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Duck better than Montague.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Duck it shall be. Here, Percy, show Duck around.
  • George Carlin: The two engines went off together. Soon they were very busy. James, Gordon and Henry watched Duck quietly doing his work.
  • Henry: He seems a simple sort of engine.
  • James: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Henry, Gordon, James: Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack! Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Smoke billowed everywhere. Percy was cross, but Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes they do.
  • George Carlin: Answered Percy.
  • Duck: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He whispered something.
  • Duck: We'll do it later.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Wheesh! (snorting)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He said and hurried to the yard. Duck and Percy calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the engines in. Gordon, James and Henry were furious.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Bellowed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: They won't let us in!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck, explain this behavior.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western engine. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Percy and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, engines that we only take orders from you.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quiet!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy and Duck, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • George Carlin: Gordon, Henry and James sniggered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As for you.
  • George Carlin: Thundered Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Duck is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • George Carlin: After Percy went away, Duck was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!
  • (A nameplate sequence happens and we begin Pop Goes The Diesel)
  • George Carlin: Duck is very proud of being Great Western. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard too and makes everything ran like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The cars and coaches behave well, the passengers even stopped grumbling. But the engines didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Duck: There are two ways of doing things.
  • George Carlin: Duck told them.
  • Duck: The Great Western way, or the wrong way. I'm Great Western and...
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Don't we know it!
  • George Carlin: They groaned. The engines were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Sir Topham Hatt introduce him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here is Diesel. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Duck.
  • Diesel: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Purred Diesel in an oily voice.
  • Diesel: Please to meet you, Duck. Is that James and Henry and Gordon too? I am delighted to meet such famous engines.
  • George Carlin: The silly engines were flattered.
  • Engines: He has very good manners.
  • George Carlin: They murmured.
  • Engines: We're pleased to have in our yard.
  • George Carlin: Duck had his doubts.
  • Duck: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He said. Diesel purred after him.
  • Diesel: Your worth Top...
  • Duck: Sir Topham Hatt to you.
  • George Carlin: Ordered Duck. Diesel looked hurt.
  • Diesel: Your worthy Sir Topham Hatt thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We diesel don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Duck: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my cars while I fetch Gordon's coaches.
  • George Carlin: Diesel delighted to show off, purred away. When Duck returned, Diesel was trying to take some cars from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Diesel found them hard to move.
  • Diesel: Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Cars: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: The cars groaned.
  • Cars: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Duck watched with interest. Diesel lost patience.
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: He roared, and gave a great heave. The cars jerked forward.
  • Cars: Ohhh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Cars: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Diesel: Grrrr!
  • Duck: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck. Diesel recovered and try to push the cars back, but they wouldn't move. Duck ran quietly around to collect the other cars.
  • Duck: Thank you for arranging these, Diesel. I must go now.
  • Diesel: Don't you want this lot?
  • Duck: No thank you.
  • George Carlin: Diesel gulped.
  • Diesel: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Duck: You never asked me. Besides.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Diesel: Grrrr!
  • George Carlin: Diesel had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the cars were laughing and singing at him.
  • Cars: Cars are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Diesel, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong cars out, Pop Goes The Diesel!
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Diesel, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Diesel's Devious Deed)
  • George Carlin: Diesel the new engine was sulking. The freight cars were not stop singing rudely at him.
  • Freight Cars: Show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Diesel. In and out he creeps about...
  • George Carlin: Duck was horrified.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Duck: I'm sorry our cars were rude to you, Diesel.
  • George Carlin: Diesel was still furious.
  • Diesel: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Henry: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: Duck would never do that. We engines have our differences, but we never talked about them to the cars. That would be dis...dis...
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry. Diesel hated Duck. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Duck. Next day, he spoke to the cars.
  • Diesel: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Duck told me one about Gordon. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Gordon I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Freight Cars: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the cars.
  • Freight Cars: Gordon will be cross with Duck when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Duck for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the engines as they went by. Soon Gordon, Henry, and James found out why.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry.
  • Henry: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Henry: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Henry: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • George Carlin: Duck was tired out. The cars had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three engines barred his way.
  • Gordon, James and Henry: Hooosh!
  • James: Keep out!
  • Duck: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: I'm tired.
  • Gordon, James and Henry: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the engines.
  • Gordon, James and Henry: We're tired of you. We like Diesel. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the cars.
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt came to stop the noise.
  • Gordon: Duck called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • James: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James.
  • Henry: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Duck?
  • George Carlin: Duck considered.
  • Duck: I only wish sir.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Duck: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: (clearing throat)
  • Gordon, James and Henry: He made cars laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the engines. Sir Topham Hatt recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Did you, Duck?
  • Duck: Certainly not, Sir. No steam engine will be as mean as that.
  • George Carlin: Diesel lurked up.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now, Diesel, you heard what Duck said.
  • Diesel: I can't understand it, Sir, to think that Duck of all engines. I'm dreadfully grieved, Sir, but no nothing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Diesel squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, Duck, but you must go to Edward's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Duck: As you wish, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Duck trundled sadly away, while Diesel smirked with triumph.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin A Close Shave For Duck)
  • George Carlin: Duck the Great Western Engine puffed sadly to Edward's station.
  • Duck: It's not fair.
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duck: Diesel has been telling lies about me and made Sir Topham Hatt and all the engines think I'm horrid.
  • George Carlin: Edward smiled.
  • Edward: I know you weren't, and so does Sir Topham Hatt. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these cars?
  • George Carlin: Duck felt happier with Edward, and set to work at once. The cars were silly, heavy and noisy. The two engines have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Duck: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Duck, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Duck love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Duck: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Freight Cars: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Roared the cars.
  • Freight Cars: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Duck's Driver: Hurry, Duck, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. They raced through Edward's station, but the cars were catching up.
  • Duck's Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • George Carlin: The driver was gaining control.
  • Duck's Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • George Carlin: James was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Duck's Driver: It's up to you now, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Cried the driver. Duck put every ounce of wait and steam against the cars.
  • Duck: It's too late!
  • George Carlin: Duck groaned. He veered into a siding where a barber had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The silly cars were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the cars didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Duck.
  • Duck: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Barber: No I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • George Carlin: And he lathered Duck's face all other. Poor Duck! Thomas was helping to pull the cars away when Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Barber: I do not like engines popping through my walls.
  • George Carlin: Fumed the barber.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I appreciate your feelings.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you must know that this engine and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Barber: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: Oh! Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: He filled the basin of water to wash Duck's face.
  • Barber: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave engine.
  • Duck: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were very brave indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm proud of you.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Duck: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Of course.
  • Duck: But, sir, they don't like me. They like Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not now. I never believed Diesel, so I sent him packing. The engines were sorry and want you back.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • George Carlin: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Duck the Great Western Engine.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Donald's Duck)
  • George Carlin: Duck the Great Western engine works hard in the yard at the big station. Sometimes, he pulled coaches. Sometimes he pushed freight cars. But whatever the work, Duck got the job done without fuss. One day, Duck was resting in the shed when Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your work in the yard had been good. Would you like to have a branch line to your own.
  • Duck: Yes please, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck. So Duck took charge of his new branch line. The responsibility delighted him. The line runs along a coast by sandy beaches till it meets a port were big ships come in. Duck enjoyed exploring every curve and corner of the line. Sea breezes swirled his smoke high into the air and his green paint glistened in the sunlight.
  • Duck: This is just like being on holiday.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Driver: Well you know what they say.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: A change is as good as a rest.
  • George Carlin: Soon, Duck was busier than ever. Sir Topham Hatt was building a new station at the port. Duck pulled the heavy freight cars whenever they were needed. Bertie looked after Duck's passengers and the other engines helped too. But the work took a long time. Noise and dust filled the air.
  • Toby: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Toby.
  • Toby: The station is nearly finished.
  • Duck: And on time, too.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck thankfully. Duck felt his responsibility deeply and talked endlessly about it.
  • Duck: You don't understand, Donald, how much Sir Topham Hatt relies on me.
  • Donald: Och aye.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Donald sleeply.
  • Duck: I'm great western and I...
  • Donald: Quack, quack, quack.
  • Duck: What?
  • Donald: You heard. Quack, quack you go. Sounds like you had an egg layed. Now wheesh and let an engine sleep.
  • Duck: Quack yourself!
  • George Carlin: Said Duck indignantly. Later, he spoke to his driver.
  • Duck: Donald says I quack, as if I laid an egg.
  • Fireman: Quack do you?
  • George Carlin: Pondered his fireman. He whispered something to Duck and his driver. They were going to play a joke on Donald and pay him back for teasing Duck. The engines were busy for the rest of the day and nothing more was said. Not even a quack. But when at last, Donald was asleep, Duck's driver and fireman popped something into his water tank. Next morning when Donald for water, he found that he had an unexpected passenger aboard. A small white duckling popped out of his water tank.
  • Donald: Now look who's behind this.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Donald. The duckling was tamed, she shared the fireman's sandwiches and rode in the tender. The other engines enjoyed teasing Donald about her. Presently, she grew tired of travelling and hopped off to the station and there she stayed. That night, Donald's driver and fireman got busy and in the morning when Duck's crew arrived to look him over they laughed and laughed.
  • Driver: Look, Duck. Look what's under your bunker. It's a nest box with an egg in it.
  • George Carlin: Donald opened a sleepy eye.
  • Donald: Well, well, well. You must've laid it in the night, Duck. All are for yours.
  • George Carlin: Then Duck laughed too.
  • Duck: You win, Donald. It did take a clever engine to get the better of you.
  • George Carlin: There's a pond near the duckling station. Here she often swims and welcomes the trains as they passed by. The stationmaster calls her Dilly. But to everyone else, she is always Donald's Duck.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Diesel Does It Again)
  • George Carlin: Duck and Percy enjoyed their work in the harbour, pulling and pushing freight cars full of cargo to and from the key. But one morning, the engines were exhausted. The harbour was busier than ever. Sir Topham Hatt promised that another engine would be found to help them.
  • Percy: Huh. It's about time.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Duck: I ached so much I can hardly get my wheels to move.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. They waited for the engine to arrive. It came as a shock when he did.
  • Diesel: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Diesel in his oily voice. The two engines had not work with Diesel for a long time.
  • Duck: What are you doing here?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Duck.
  • Diesel: Your worth Top...er, Sir Topham Hatt sent me. I hope you are please to see me again. I have to shunt some dreadful tiresome cars.
  • Percy: Shunt where?
  • George Carlin: Said Percy suspiciously.
  • Diesel: Where? Why from here to there.
  • George Carlin: Purred Diesel.
  • Diesel: And then again from there to here. Easy, isn't it?
  • George Carlin: With that, Diesel as if to make himself clear bumped some cars hard.
  • Cars: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars.
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Diesel. Percy and Duck were horrified. They did not trust Diesel at all. They refuse to work and did not leave their shed. Sir Topham Hatt was enjoying his tea and iced bun when the telephone rang.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So there's trouble in the harbour yard? I'll be there right away.
  • George Carlin: Diesel was working loudly and alone. Cargo lay on the key. Ships and passengers were delayed. Everyone was complaining about Sir Topham Hatt's Railway. Percy and Duck were sulking in their shed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's all this?
  • George Carlin: Demaded Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Percy: We're on strike, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy nervously.
  • Duck: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Added Duck.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but we don't work with Diesel, sir. You said you sent him packing, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have to give Diesel a second chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm trying to help by bringing Diesel here. Now you must help me he is the only engine available.
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck went sadly back to work. Next day, things were no better. Diesel's driver did not put on his brakes on properly and Diesel started to move. He went bump straight into Percy.
  • Diesel: Wake up there, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Scowled Diesel.
  • Diesel: You have work to do.
  • George Carlin: He didn't even say he was sorry to Percy. Later, Diesel bumped the cars so hard that the loads went everywhere.
  • Percy: What would Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Percy.
  • Duck: He won't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Diesel: So who's going to tell you I wonder? Two goody-goody tattletales like you I suppose?
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck did not wanna be tattletales, so they said nothing. Diesel thinking he can getting away from his bad behavior was ruder than ever. Next day, he was shunting freight cars full of China Clay. He banged the cars hard into the buffers, but the buffers weren't secure. The silly cars were sunked! Sir Topham Hatt heard the news. The cars were hoisted safely from the sea but the clay was lost. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The harbour master has tell me anything. Things weren't much better here before you arrived. I shall not be inviting you back. Now Duck and Percy, I hope you don't mind having handle the work by yourselves again.
  • Percy: Oh no, Sir.
  • Duck: Yes please, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied the engines. Whistling cheerfully, they puff back to work while Diesel sulk slowly away.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin All At Sea)
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck like working at the harbour by the sea. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Duck and Percy puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Duck and Percy noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Duck: I wish I could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Duck.
  • Percy: Engines can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Percy.
  • Percy: Because engines can't float.
  • George Carlin: Duck still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Harold: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Harold.
  • Duck: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Harold: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case i'm needed.
  • Duck: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck.
  • Harold: Yes and beyond.
  • Percy: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Duck: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck.
  • Harold: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Percy lost patience.
  • Percy: Well, Duck, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Duck's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Duck's driver.
  • Duck's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Duck's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Harold's bringing him now. Come on.
  • (Duck hurries to the scene just in time to see Harold land)
  • Harold: Good to see you again, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Harold as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Harold: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise I will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Duck set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Bertie got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Bertie: You look splendid flying along the line, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Bertie.
  • Bertie: No wonder they called you great western.
  • Duck: Thank you, Bertie. Percy's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Duck: Engines are happiest when their wheels are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Percy and Duck stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Duck: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Percy.
  • Percy: It's Harold. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Duck. His driver caught it.
  • Duck's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Harold's giving it to you as a present, Duck.
  • Duck: That was kind of Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • Duck: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what an engine needs.
  • George Carlin: Duck still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But I think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bulgy)
  • George Carlin: It was a special holiday on the Island of Sodor. Bertie the Bus was working harder than ever before. All the engines were busy too. Duck was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Bertie. The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Bulgy: Stupid nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Bulgy: I wouldn't have brought them if I've known. I did have a breakdown or something.
  • Duck: I'm glad you didn't.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Duck.
  • Duck: You had spoiled their fun.
  • Bulgy: Bah! Enjoyment is all you engines lived for. One day railways will be ripped up.
  • George Carlin: Duck felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Duck: We have a friend called Bertie and he's a bus. But he likes the railway. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up.
  • Bulgy: Heh!
  • George Carlin: Growled the bus.
  • Bulgy: I know Bertie. He's too small in size to be in any use.
  • George Carlin: Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: That bus is silly.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he steamed away. At the junction, Duck told Oliver all about him.
  • Oliver: I call him Bulgy.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Oliver and then he puffed happily away. But that afternoon when the two engines met again, Oliver was no longer laughing.
  • Oliver: Bulgy's friend had come.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Oliver: He's rude too. He's taking Bulgy's passengers home and leaving Bulgy free to steal ours.
  • Duck: But he can't.
  • George Carlin: Objected Duck.
  • Oliver: Bulgy says he can get them to the big station before us.
  • Duck: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck.
  • Duck: It's much farther by road.
  • Oliver: Yeah.
  • George Carlin: Continued Oliver.
  • Oliver: But Bulgy says he knows a shortcut.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Duck: Where are the passengers?
  • George Carlin: They wondered.
  • Oliver: Look!
  • George Carlin: Shrilled Oliver.
  • Oliver: Look at Bulgy. He's a mean scarlet deciever.
  • George Carlin: Bulgy was wearing a large sign saying: Railway Bus.
  • Bulgy: Yaa boo snubs.
  • George Carlin: He jeered as he roared away.
  • Duck: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Duck to his coaches.
  • Duck: Let's see what he's up to.
  • George Carlin: Duck wanted to get back at Bulgy, but he wasn't sure how. Then in the distance, Duck saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Bulgy wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Duck: So this was his shortcut.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He tricked us.
  • George Carlin: Shouted Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets. He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • George Carlin: Duck's crew examined the bridge.
  • Duck's Driver: It's risky, but we must help the passengers.
  • Duck: Passengers are urgent.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. Duck slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Bulgy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Bulgy: (groaning) Stop!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Bulgy: It might fall on me.
  • Duck: That would serve you right for telling lies.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck. But the bridge didn't collapse. Duck made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Bulgy and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bowled Out)
  • George Carlin: Stepney's visit to Sir Topham Hatt's railway was coming to an end.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We shall miss you.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Then he turned his attention to all the other engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My railway was very busy but I'm pleased with you, but you need help. A diesel was all was available. Please do your best to avoid any, uh, ahem, disturbances.
  • Duck: What does that mean?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • James: That means this diesel is difficult.
  • George Carlin: Snapped James. And he was. The diesel surveyed the shed.
  • The Diesel: Not bad. I've seen worse. At least you're all clean.
  • George Carlin: The engines glared.
  • The Diesel: It's not your fault, but Sir Topham Hatt should scrap you and get engines like me. A fill of oil, a touch of a start and I'm off. No bother, no waiting. They had to fuss round you for hours before you're ready.
  • George Carlin: The engines were furious! Next morning, they held an indignation meeting around the turntable.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful!
  • James: Disgusting!
  • Henry: Despicable!
  • Donald: To say such things to us.
  • George Carlin: Cried Donald and Douglas.
  • Douglas: It's too teach him a lesson we be wanting. But how do we do it?
  • George Carlin: Their chance came sooner and they expected. The diesel was purring comfortable. An inspector watch the fitter making final adjustments. The wind tugged the inspector's hat. The diesel was ready.
  • The Diesel: Look at me, Duck and Stepney. Now I'll show you something.
  • George Carlin: He rolled proudly toward his coaches. Then, it happened.
  • (The Diesel starts to make bad sounds and breaks down)
  • George Carlin: Shaking and spluttering, the diesel stopped. Meanwhile the inspector was looking for his hat. The diesel seethed through furious. Duck and Stepney pushed him back to the shed.
  • Inspector: My hat!
  • George Carlin: Explained the inspector.
  • Inspector: You've sucked it through your air intake!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother your hat. The heavy trains' due out. You have to take it, Duck. Stepney, will you help please?
  • Stepney: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Cried Stepney.
  • Stepney: I like a good long run on my last day.
  • George Carlin: The engines were soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon will take over from halfway so get the train in there. Good luck.
  • Stepney: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Stepney.
  • Stepney: We'll get there and be early too.
  • George Carlin: The cavalcade moved carefully over the rails and out to the open line.
  • Stepney: Now for a sprint.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Stepney.
  • Duck: I'm ready when you are.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck. Soon they were whizzing through Edward's station. At next, they charged at Gordon's Hill beyond. They felt the drag of the heavy coaches here. It was hard work. At last they were running smoothly along the line toward the big station.
  • Gordon: Hello, you're early!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's one of the headlamp for old diesel.
  • Stepney: James says he's sick as boiler sludge and sulking in the shed.
  • Gordon: Serves him right were saying were out of date!
  • George Carlin: And Gordon chortled away. Next day, everyone came to say goodbye to Stepney.
  • Engines: Come back and see you soon!
  • George Carlin: Whistled the engines.
  • Stepney: And you're always welcome at my bluebell railway too.
  • George Carlin: Replied Stepney. Then he puffed away. What about diesel? He'd slipped out when no one was looking. But he left two things behind: a rather nasty smell and a battered bowler hat.
