Terry Takes A Dip

  • George Carlin: Terry was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Terry: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid character, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Shaggy: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Shaggy,
  • Terry: What cheek!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Terry.
  • Terry: That Shaggy is too big for his feet. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Alex: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • George Carlin: Asked Alex innocently.
  • Terry: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any character. But to come off the rails like Shaggy did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • George Carlin: Then it was Shaggy's turn to take the express. Terry watch him getting ready.
  • Terry: Be careful, Shaggy. You're not pulling the flying kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy went off in a huff, and Terry yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Terry: Is it coaches or Beedrill?
  • Driver: Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Terry: Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Puh-huh.
  • George Carlin: Terry's fire was slow to start, so Kevin had to push Terry to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Terry: I won't go, I won't go!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Terry.
  • Kevin: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Kevin. At last, Terry was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Terry was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Terry: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Terry: Oosh!
  • George Carlin: He hissed.
  • Terry: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great character. Don't you understand that?
  • George Carlin: They telephoned Steven.
  • Steven: So Terry didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Kevin to take it please. And Terry? Leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • George Carlin: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Oh, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • George Carlin: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Terry fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Terry fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • George Carlin: Terry layed in the ditch all day.
  • Terry: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Terry: I shall never get out.
  • George Carlin: But that evening, they lifted Terry and made a rope of sleepers under his feet to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and Raimundo and Shaggy pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Terry crawled home, a sadder and wiser character.

Down The Hole

  • George Carlin: One day, Ash was at the university when Terry shuffled in with some Beedrill.
  • Ash: Phew!
  • George Carlin: Remarked Ash.
  • Ash: What a funny smell. Can you smell a smell?
  • Suzy: I can't smell a smell.
  • George Carlin: Said Suzy.
  • Ash: A funny musty sort of smell.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Terry: No one noticed until you did.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Terry.
  • Terry: It must be yours.
  • George Carlin: Not long ago, he had fallen into a dirty ditch. Ash enjoyed teasing him about it.
  • Ash: Suzy, Pietra, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater.
  • George Carlin: Before Terry could answer, Ash puffed away. Suzy and Pietra could hardly believe their ears.
  • Suzy: He's dreadfully rude I feel quite ashamed.
  • Pietra: I feel quite ashamed he's dreadfully rude.
  • George Carlin: And to Ash they said.
  • Suzy and Pietra: You musn't be rude, you make us ashamed.
  • George Carlin: But Ash didn't care a bit.
  • Ash: That was funny, that was funny.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself. Suzy and Pietra were deeply shocked. They have great respect for Terry McGinnis. Ash left the coaches at the station and went off to a mine for some Beedrill. Long ago, miners digging there have made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars but not the weight of characters. A large notice warns them not to enter the area: Danger! Characters must not pass this board.
  • Ash: Silly old board.
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash. He had often tried to pass it but had never suceeded. But this morning he had made a plan. The fireman went to throw the switch.
  • Ash: Now for my plan!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash. Bumping the Beedrill fiercely he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding.
  • Driver: Come back!
  • George Carlin: Yelled his driver.
  • (A loud splash is heard as Ash falls to the mine)
  • Ash: Fire and smoke!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'm sunk.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Ash: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ash: I am a silly trainer.
  • Steven: And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Ash: Please let me out. I wont do it again.
  • Steven: I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with the cranes. The ground's not firm enough. Hmm, let me see. I wonder if Terry could pull you out.
  • Ash: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash. But he didn't want to meet Terry just yet.
  • Terry: Down the mine is he? Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Terry.
  • Terry: What a joke! Boop boop! Little Ash, we'll have your out in a couple of puffs.
  • George Carlin: Strong cables were fastened between the two characters.
  • Steven: Are you ready? Heave!
  • George Carlin: It was a lot harden than they all thought. But at last Ash was free.
  • Ash: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Terry: That's all right, Ash. You made me laugh.
  • George Carlin: Replied Terry.
  • Terry: I'm in disgrace.
  • Ash: So do I.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Terry: Why so you are Ash. Shall we form an alliance? You help me and I help you.
  • Ash: Right you are.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Ash.
  • Terry: Good. That's settled.
  • George Carlin: Rumbled Terry. And buffer to buffer the allies puffed home.

Yelling and Sneezes

  • George Carlin: Terry was cross.
  • Terry: Why should Shaggy have a new shape?
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Terry: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful. And there's another thing: Shaggy whistles too much. No respectable character ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: Poor Shaggy didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Alex: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Alex.
  • Alex: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Terry: Goodbye, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Called Terry.
  • Terry: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • George Carlin: Later, Shaggy stopped at Kevin's station.
  • Kevin: Hello, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Shaggy: Thank you, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Shaggy.
  • (We hear a screeching noise)
  • Shaggy: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Kevin: It sounds like Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: And it ought to be Terry. But Terry never whistles like that.
  • George Carlin: It was Terry. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Shaggy and he didn't look at Kevin. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Kevin: Well.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Shaggy: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: And he told Kevin what Terry had said. Meanwhile, Terry screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone covered their ears. Steven covered his ears too.
  • Steven: Take him away!
  • George Carlin: He bellowed.
  • Steven: And stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Terry puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place. That night, Terry slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Shaggy: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Shaggy to no one in particular.
  • Shaggy: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Shaggy was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Shaggy: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • George Carlin: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • George Carlin: Hummed his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Shaggy: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • (The boys smash the coaches' windows with stones)
  • Shaggy: Ohh.
  • George Carlin: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass, they've broken our glass.
  • George Carlin: Cried the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Shaggy's Driver: No.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Leave it to Shaggy and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • George Carlin: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Shaggy: Yes, yes.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Well then.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Shaggy is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • George Carlin: Lots of people were at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Shaggy has plenty of ashes.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Shaggy's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • George Carlin: Shaggy felt more stuffed up than excitement. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Are you ready, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Shaggy: Ah-choo!
  • (Shaggy sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Shaggy's Driver: Well done, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver. Shaggy went home, hoping that next time he saw Terry and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.

Terry and The Famous Visitor

  • George Carlin: It was an important day in the yard. Everyone was excited, making notes and taking photographs. A special visitor had arrived, and was now the center of attention.
  • Ash: Who's that?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ash to Virgil.
  • Virgil: That...
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil proudly.
  • Virgil: ...is a celebrity.
  • Alex: A what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Alex.
  • Virgil: A celebrity is a very famous character.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil.
  • Virgil: Driver says we can talk to him soon.
  • Ash: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: He's probably too famous to even notice us.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Terry arrived.
  • Terry: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Who cares? A lot of fuss about nothing, if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: And he steamed away. Later that night, the characters found that the visitor wasn't concieted at all. He enjoyed talking the engines, till' long after the stars came out. He left early next morning. Terry was still complaining.
  • Terry: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Terry: Chattering all night. Who is he, anyway?
  • Ash: Virgil told you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: He's famous.
  • Terry: As famous as me? Nonsense.
  • Ash: He's famouser than you. He went 100 miles an hour before you were thought of.
  • Terry: Huh. So he says.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: But I didn't like his looks. He's got no dome. Never trust domeless characters. They're not respectable. I never boast, but I'd say that 100 miles an hour would be easy for me. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Virgil took some Beedrill to Kevin's station.
  • Kevin: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Called Kevin.
  • Kevin: That famous character came through this morning. He whistled to me. Wasn't he kind?
  • Virgil: He's the finest character in the world.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil, then he told Kevin what Terry had said.
  • Kevin: Take no notice.
  • George Carlin: Soothed Kevin.
  • Kevin: He's just jealous. He thinks no character should be famous but him. Look, he's coming now.
  • George Carlin: Terry was running very fast. His feet pounded the rails.
  • Terry: He did it, I'll do it. He did it, I'll do it!
  • George Carlin: Terry's train rocketed past, and was gone.
  • Virgil: He'll knock himself to bits!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil. Terry's driver eased him off.
  • Terry's Driver: Steady, Terry. We aren't running a race.
  • Terry: We are, then.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry, but he said it to himself. Suddenly, Terry began to feel a little strange.
  • Terry: The top of my boiler seems funny.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Terry: It feels as if something is loose! I'd better go slower.
  • George Carlin: But it was too late. On the viaduct, they met the wind. It was a teasing wind that blew suddenly at hard puffs. Terry thought it wanted to push him off the bridge.
  • Terry: No, you don't!
  • George Carlin: He said firmly. But the wind had other ideas. It curled round his boiler, crept under his loose dome, and lifted off and away into the valley below. Terry was most uncomfortable. The cold wind was whistling through his hole where his dome should be and he felt silly without it. At the big station, the Beedrill laughed at him. Terry tried to wheesh them away. But they crowded round', no matter what he did. On the way back home, he wanted his driver to stop and fetch his dome.
  • Terry's Driver: We'll never find it now.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Terry's Driver: You'll have to go to the works for a new one.
  • George Carlin: Terry was very cross.
  • Terry: I hope the shed is empty tonight.
  • George Carlin: He huffed to himself. But all the characters were there waiting.
  • A Voice: Never trust domeless characters.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice from somewhere behind him.
  • A Voice: They aren't respectable.

Wrong Road

  • George Carlin: Ash's route is important and so is Kevin's. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Steven does not allow the heavier main line engines like Terry to run on them. But one day, the way Terry was talking, he would have tought Steven had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Terry: It's not fair!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Terry.
  • Kevin: What isn't fair?
  • George Carlin: Asked Kevin.
  • Terry: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Kevin: Never mind, Terry. I'm sure Donkey Kong will let you pull his Beedrill sometimes.
  • George Carlin: Terry spluttered.
  • Terry: I wont pull Donkey Kong's dirty Beedrill. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Kevin: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Terry: Steven would never approve.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Terry puffed away. Kevin chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two characters pulled two fast trains from the station. Terry always leaves first with an express for the main line. Kevin follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Terry to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • George Carlin: He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Terry started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Terry had been stopped and brought back, Kevin was already late with his train. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Kevin along the main line. Terry was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bumpty and Raphael peeped into the yard. There were no Beedrill for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Terry will be much better fun.
  • Bumpty: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bumpty.
  • Raphael: Sheesh!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Raphael.
  • Raphael: It's Terry.
  • Bumpty: It looks like Terry, but it can't be. Terry never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Terry pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Raphael: If it isn't Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Raphael.
  • Raphael: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bumpty: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Raphael: No Bumpty, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • George Carlin: Terry was alarmed.
  • Terry: I am Terry. Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: When Donkey Kong suddenly arrived, Terry thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Terry: Donkey Kong, my dear character, save me.
  • George Carlin: Donkey Kong quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the Beedrill he had brought for Bumpty and Raphael. This made the twin behave at once. Terry thought Donkey Kong was wonderful.
  • Terry: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • Donkey Kong: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: It's just a knack.
  • George Carlin: Terry still believed that Donkey Kong saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?

The Trouble With Mud

  • George Carlin: One morning, Ash was being cleaned when Terry arrived. Mud had blown all over his body.
  • Ash: Hello, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Called Ash.
  • Ash: You look as you had a mud bath. Be a sensible person and have a shower instead.
  • George Carlin: Terry snorted.
  • Terry: I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy trainers do.
  • George Carlin: The wind blew stronger.
  • Driver: Terry, slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. This made Terry crosser still.
  • Terry: Now I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. At the next station was a sign: All Trains Must Wash Down Daily. Raimundo had just finished being cleaned.
  • Driver: Come on, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: You feel better too after a good hosedown.
  • Terry: Bah!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry and angrily let off steam.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty boy!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry's driver.
  • Driver: Now Raimundo will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later.
  • Terry: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: I'm far too busy to waste time with water.
  • George Carlin: He finished his journey safely and steamed into the big station. Steven was waiting. So are Terry's coaches and the passengers.
  • Steven: Goodness gracious!
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: You can't pull the train, Shaggy will have to do it. Terry you better get cleaned straight away.
  • George Carlin: Terry was soon being washed.
  • Terry: Mind my eyes!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled. Then he pulled Beedrill for the rest of the day.
  • Terry: Freight trains, freight trains!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered. He felt his position deeply.
  • Terry: That's for you, and you, and you!
  • Raimundo: Beedrill will be Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Raimundo.
  • Terry: They won't with me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Terry.
  • Terry: I'll teach them.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo got ready to take the express when Terry returned.
  • Terry: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Terry.
  • Terry: The hills are slippery. You may need help.
  • Raimundo: I don't need help on hills.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raimundo huffily.
  • Raimundo: Terry thinks he knows everything.
  • George Carlin: Earlier the storm had slipped Terry's Hill blowing leaves on the tracks which made them slippery. Even know the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. Al knew this. The signal shown cleared, and Raimundo began to go faster.
  • Raimundo: I'll do it, I'll do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. Halfway up, he was not so sure.
  • Raimundo: I must do it, I must do it.
  • George Carlin: But his feet slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the train at all.
  • Raimundo: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo. His feet were turning forward, but the heavy coaches pulled him backwards. The haul train started slipping down the hill. His driver shut off steam and put on the brakes, then carefully he stopped the train. Terry saw everything.
  • Terry: Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little Raimundo. I'm going to push behind.
  • George Carlin: Clouds of smoke and steam billowed from the snorting boys as they struggled up the hill.
  • Raimundo: We can do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Raimundo.
  • Terry: We will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Terry. At last they reached the top.
  • Raimundo: Peep peep! Thank you, goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo.
  • Terry: Boop boop!
  • George Carlin: Answered Terry.
  • Terry: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: That night, Steven came to see the characters. Terry was miserable.
  • Ash: Please, sir?
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Can Terry pull coaches again now?
  • Steven: If you understand that having a washdown as a sensle to every character, then yes, Terry, you may.
  • Terry: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Terry.
  • Terry: Dirty or clean, I'm a famous machine!
  • George Carlin: But no one heard but him.

Important Characters

  • George Carlin: One morning, Terry was in the yard drinking a soda of Pepsi.
  • Raimundo: That's the third load of Pepsi you had today, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Some might say you're being rather greedy.
  • Gordon: I'm an important character.
  • George Carlin: Replied Terry.
  • Terry: Important characters need plenty of Pepsi, but I doubted if you would understand that, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo snorted and went about his work. Later, Terry was taking on water from a standpipe because the water tower was under repair.
  • Virgil: I wouldn't drink too much of that water if I were you, Terry. It might give you boiler-ache.
  • Terry: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: What's this? Educating Terry day? First Raimundo, now you, Virgil. Big characters have big needs. Little characters are just annoying.
  • Virgil: Don't say I didn't warn you.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Virgil. Later, Terry steamed into the yard at the big station.
  • Terry: That's what I need.
  • George Carlin: Explained Terry. There emergen out of his sheds were two shiny tenders.
  • Terry: Now If I had two tenders.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: I wouldn't need to stop so often. And I wouldn't have to listen to silly little characters.
  • Driver: Those tenders belong to a visitor.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. Ken sidled up alongside.
  • Ken: Everyone knows that tenders are a mark and distinction, but I'm afraid that no amount of tendres will save you in the end. We villains are taking over, and we don't need tenders to make us important, not even one.
  • George Carlin: Terry was most upset. He was feeling just the same next morning.
  • Terry: I'm not happy.
  • Virgil: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: It's boiler-ache.
  • Terry: It's not boiler-ache.
  • George Carlin: Protested Terry.
  • Terry: It's...
  • Shaggy: Of course it is.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: That water's bad. Have a good wash-out, then you feel a different character. Your boiler must be full of sludge.
  • Terry: Don't be vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry. He backed on his train hissing mournfully.
  • Steven: Cheer up, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Terry: I can't, sir. Is it true what villains said, sir?
  • Steven: What does his say?
  • Terry: That villains are taking over.
  • Steven: Don't worry, Terry. That will never happen on my railway.
  • Terry: One more thing, sir. Why did the visitor have two tenders?
  • Steven: Because he lives on the railway with long difference between coaling depots.
  • George Carlin: Terry felt better. But Shaggy started complaining. He banged some Beedrill angrily.
  • Shaggy: I always worked hard enough for two.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Shaggy: I deserved another tender.
  • George Carlin: Virgil whispered something to Ozzy. He was going to play a trick on Shaggy.
  • Virgil: Shaggy?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Virgil: Would you like my tenders?
  • Shaggy: Yours?! What have you got to do with tenders?
  • Virgil: All right.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: The deals off. Would you like them, Ozzy?
  • Ozzy: I wouldn't deprive you of the honor.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ozzy.
  • Virgil: It is a great honor.
  • George Carlin: Continued Virgil thoughtfully.
  • Virgil: But I'm only a teenager. Perhaps Raimundo might...
  • Shaggy: I'm sorry I was rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy hastily.
  • Shaggy: How many tenders have you and when can I have them?
  • Virgil: Uh, hmm, I have six and you can have them this evening.
  • Shaggy: Six lovely tenders!
  • George Carlin: Chortled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: What a splendid sight I'll be.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy was excited all day.
  • Shaggy: Do you think it'll be all right?
  • George Carlin: He asked for umpteenth time.
  • Virgil: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: They're already now.
  • George Carlin: The other characters waited where they can each get a good view. But Shaggy wasn't a splendid sight at all. His six tenders were very old, dirty and filled with boiler sludge.
  • Terry: Have a good wash-out, Shaggy?
  • George Carlin: Called a voice.
  • Terry: That's right. You'll feel a different character now.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy was not sure, but he thought his voice belongs to Terry.

Terry and The Gremlin

  • Alec Baldwin: Early one morning, Terry's body would not move.
  • Firelighter: I don't know what's wrong.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the firelighter.
  • Firelighter: There must be gremlins about.
  • Alex: What are gremlins?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Alex.
  • Ash: I've heard that they're little green men who play tricks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Ash.
  • Alex: Can we find one?
  • Raimundo: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Gremlins don't exist. They're just an excuse when things go wrong.
  • Ash: If firelighter says there are gremlins, there are.
  • Raimundo: Hah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Raimundo. Steven had heard everything.
  • Steven: Silence!
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Steven: I am expecting a VIP, a very important person today. She is heard that all my characters are really useful. Please prove it.
  • Characters: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: They all said.
  • Alex: As long as the gremlins let us.
  • Steven: What gremlins.
  • Alex: The ones in Terry's body, sir, that's why he's not ready yet.
  • Steven: I'll see about that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thundered Steven and he did.
  • Steven: Terry, I expect you'd be on your best behavior today. You were to pull the special coach from my special visitor. But no high speeds, please, she won't like that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Terry was proud and pleased. He was waiting for his special coach when Alex puffed in with some Beedrill.
  • Alex: What's the matter, Terry, you're late.
  • Terry: Driver says there's gremlins in the turntables.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Terry.
  • Alex: They must be everywhere!
  • Alec Baldwin: Squeaked Alex. At last, the turntable was mended and Terry puffed away with the special coach. He was soon working hard to make up for lost time. After he arrived at the station, Steven became concerned.
  • Steven: Where's Ash?
  • Alec Baldwin: He wondered.
  • Steven: He's supposed to be bringing my visitor to the docks.
  • Terry: Hah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: Ash isn't really useful is he's late.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it wasn't long before Ash arrived.
  • Ash: (pants) I'm sorry. (pants) A cow strayed on the line and we had to wait for the farmer to take her away. But driver says your visitor is here safe and sound.
  • Steven: Indeed she is.
  • Alec Baldwin: Smiled Steven.
  • Steven: How nice to see you.
  • Alex: Who is it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Alex.
  • Ash: I don't know.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: But Steven is certainly keen to please her. He's a arranged a special party for her.
  • Alex: She's got a dog as well.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Alex.
  • Gremlin: (barks)
  • Ash's Driver: Come on, Ash.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • Ash's Driver: You need a drink.
  • Terry: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Terry.
  • Terry: Ash is just a lazy little trainer. Steven is expecting me to arrive on time. We're late because of Ash.
  • Alec Baldwin: Terry's driver decided to make up for lost time. Then, there was trouble.
  • Terry's Driver: I think we better slow down. This is an old line that could make things uncomfortable for the VIP.
  • Alec Baldwin: And it did. She was taking a bath and the water was slopping all over the place.
  • Ellen: (groans)
  • Alec Baldwin: She cried. Terry was very relieved to reach his final destination where Ash was waiting to collect Steven and his special visitor. He blew an extra long whistle. This frightened the visitor's dog so much that he fled from the station and ran into a field where a bull was grazing.
  • Bull: (roaring)
  • Alec Baldwin: The bull frightened the little dog even more. He ran back again onto the platform and over the bridge.
  • Gremlin: (barking)
  • Alec Baldwin: He didn't stop until he jumped straight into Ash's cab.
  • Gremlin: (barks)
  • Alec Baldwin: But he had a wonderful ride all the way to the docks.
  • Ash's Fireman: What's the dog's name?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the fireman.
  • Ellen: Well, after today's events, I think I'll rename him Gremlin.
  • Alec Baldwin: Steven chuckled.
  • Steven: In that case, I've met one at last. Ha ha.
  • Ash: Excuse me, sir, but who is your very important visitor?
  • Steven: Why didn't I tell you? This lady is my mother and she agrees with me. You are indeed really useful characters and my mother of course is always right. (laughs)

A Better View For Terry

  • Alec Baldwin: Terry was feeling grumpy. This was making Raimundo cross.
  • Raimundo: Why are you complaining all the time?
  • Terry: Because I'm a big man and I know everything. I shall complain whatever I like. You're just an ordinary Xiaolin Monk with ideas above your station.
  • Alex: I can't see any.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: Where are they?
  • Terry: Any what?
  • Alex: Ideas above the station. The sky's empty.
  • Raimundo: Like your smokebox, Alex.
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed Raimundo, but Terry was still grumpy.
  • Terry: One day I'll show you just a big man can really do.
  • Alex: So what can a big man really do?
  • Terry: Not speak to silly little kids for a start.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Terry, then he puffed away. Later that day, Steven came to see him.
  • Steven: Terry, you'll be making one stop today with an empty express to test our new station. You can make up time afterwards.
  • Terry: Why can't Shaggy do it? He likes idling at stations.
  • Steven: You will do as you are told.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Terry did. But he was still unhappy and he grew sick too.
  • Terry: I just can't get up to speed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He groaned.
  • Terry's Fireman: It's time for your visit to the works. Your pipes are clogged.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the fireman. At last, they approached the new station. Terry was impressed but his mood soon changed. In front of him was a blank wall and huge buffers.
  • Terry: What a boring view! Important characters like me should have a paramonic view where I can see people and people could see me.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed angrily. Terry was happy when it was time to leave.
  • Terry's Driver: Now you can really enjoy your run as long as your pipes will let you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Terry: Come on, come on! I can go faster that this!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: Sick? Me? Never!
  • (Terry suddenly breaks down)
  • Alec Baldwin: But Terry began to feel more and more feeble, and soon, he came to a complete stop.
  • Terry: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman inspected him.
  • Terry's Fireman: Something's broken inside you, Terry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his fireman.
  • Terry's Fireman: Now you're really will have to go to the works.
  • Alec Baldwin: Terry was still fuming when Raimundo arrived to collect his coaches.
  • Raimundo: Well, well, well! So much about anything. You got too puffed up in your boiler so it's serves you right.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Raimundo returned to the works a few days later, he was still boasting.
  • Terry: I am the finest character on the land of YTV, properly the finest in the world.
  • Steven: Come on, Terry. We're going to the official opening at the new station.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then, there was trouble. As Terry approached the new station, neither the driver nor fireman could apply his brakes. Something had jammed. The driver reduced steam, but Terry was still going too fast.
  • (Terry crashed into the wall)
  • Terry: Help me, please!
  • Steven: Well, Terry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: I knew you wanted a panoramic view, but this is not a way to achieve it.
  • Terry: Yes, Sir, sorry, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Terry was repaired again, he took Steven to the new station, for a second official opening. This time he arrived safely, and everyone clapped and cheered as he pulled in. Steven spoke to him.
  • Steven: Your panoramic view is here to stay. I trusted you are always see through it, from the safety of your own rails.
  • Alec Baldwin: Terry hardly agreed.
