  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Donald and Douglas)
  • George Carlin: Donald and Douglas are twins and had arrived from Scotland to help Sir Topham Hatt, but only one engine had been expected. The twins meant well, but did cause confusion. Sir Topham Hatt had given them numbers, Donald 9 and Douglas 10, but he was still planning to send one engine home. There was a break van in the yard that had taken a dislike to Douglas. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Douglas began to worry. Donald, his twin, was angry.
  • Donald: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Break Van: You can't!
  • George Carlin: Said the break van.
  • Break Van: I'm essential!
  • Donald: Och are you?
  • George Carlin: Donald burst out.
  • Donald: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Douggie, would ya? Take that!
  • Break Van: Ow! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Cried the van.
  • Donald: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • George Carlin: The van behave better after that. Until one day, Donald had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time. Donald wasn't hurt, but Sir Topham Hatt was most annyoed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am disappointed, Donald. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Douglas back and keep you.
  • Donald: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now James will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. James won't like that.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was right. James grumbled dreadfully about extra work.
  • Douglas: Anyone would think.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: That Donald had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about an engine and some tar wagons.
  • James: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: It's not funny.
  • George Carlin: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Donald: Well, well, well! Surely, James, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • George Carlin: James didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Break Van: James is cross!
  • George Carlin: Sniggered the spiteful break van.
  • Break Van: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Cars: Hold back!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the freight cars to each other. James did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Edward's station. Luckily, Douglas was there.
  • James: Help me up the hill, please!
  • George Carlin: Panted James.
  • James: These freight cars are playing tricks.
  • Douglas: We'll show them.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas. Slowly but surely, the snorting engines forced the freight cars up the hill. But James was losing steam.
  • James: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Douglas: Leave it to me!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Douglas. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady! The van's breaking!
  • George Carlin: The van was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Edward came to clear the mess. Sir Topham Hatt was board.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I might have known it would be Douglas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Edward: Douglas was grand, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: James had no steam left, but Douglas worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Two would have been enough.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want to be fair, Douglas, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt was making up his mind about which engine to send away, but that's another story.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Deputation)
  • George Carlin: Snow came early to the Island of Sodor. It was heavier than usual. Most engines hate snow. Donald and Douglas were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Henry: Help, help!
  • Douglas: Losh shakes, Donald! It's Henry!
  • Donald: Don't worry yourself, Henry! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • George Carlin: Henry was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The twins were looking glum. They told him Sir Topham Hatt was making a decision.
  • Donald: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Percy: It's a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Gordon: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • James: That spiteful break van too.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • James: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Henry: The twins were splendid in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Added Henry.
  • Henry: It isn't fair.
  • George Carlin: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Percy decided to talk to Edward about it.
  • Edward: What you need...
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: ...is a deputation.
  • George Carlin: He explained what that was. Percy ran back quickly.
  • Percy: Edward says we need a depostation.
  • Gordon: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The question is...
  • Henry: What is a desperation?
  • George Carlin: Asked Henry.
  • Percy: It's when engines tell Sir Topham Hatt something's wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Duck: Did you say tell Sir Topham Hatt?
  • George Carlin: Asked Duck thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Gordon: I purpose.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Percy be our...um...disputation.
  • Percy: Me?!
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Percy.
  • Percy: I can't!
  • Henry: Rubbish, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: It's easy.
  • Gordon: That's settled then.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon. Poor Percy wished it wasn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy. It's nice to be back.
  • George Carlin: Percy jumped.
  • Percy: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look nervous, Percy. What's the matter?
  • Percy: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt pondered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you mean a deputation, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes sir, please sir. It's Donald and Douglas. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be turned to scrap, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Please, sir, don't send them away.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you, Percy. That will do.
  • George Carlin: Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings and I give a lot of thought to the matter.
  • George Carlin: He paused impressively.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Donald and Douglas, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: The twins were surprised.
  • Donald: Thank you, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Douglas: Thank you, sir. Uh, does this mean that the both of us?
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt smiled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It means...
  • George Carlin: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The twins were here to stay.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • (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 Twin Trouble)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald and Douglas are Scottish twin engines. They are practical peppery and proud. They nearly always work together. One day, Donald and Douglas were chuffing through the countryside hauling a heavy load. Down the line, Trevor the Traction Engine had been struggling with a big cartload of hay. Crossing the tracks, the cart's wheels have broken off. Then Trevor heard a whistle.
  • Trevor: Oh no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Trevor cried. Donald could see the cart.
  • Donald: Stop!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. Donald's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. Luckily, no one was hurt.
  • Donald: Stop being pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald snapped.
  • Douglas: Don't call me pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas snapped back.
  • Donald: You shouldn't have pushed me into the cart.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald.
  • Douglas: You pulled me you mean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Argued Douglas.
  • Donald: Didn't!
  • Douglas: Did!
  • Donald: Did not!
  • Douglas: Did too!
  • Alec Baldwin: Before long the track was cleared and Donald and Douglas were on their way. The twins were so cross they refuse to speak to each other for the rest of the day. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt needed an engine to help Duck at the smelter's yards.
  • Donald: May I go, sir?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald eagerly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I only need one engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not two.
  • Donald: I am only one engine, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: And I would like to help with Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was surprised but agreed. Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: Won't you miss one another?
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I know I missed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Douglas: I'll work better on my own.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Douglas.
  • Donald: I have work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald. At first, Donald enjoyed working with Duck. Then, things started to go wrong.
  • Donald: Did you shunt those freight cars on the other line?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald asked.
  • Duck: You said you wanted them on the other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck replied.
  • Donald: Not that other line, the other other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald was cross.
  • Donald: Douglas would have known what I've meant.
  • Alec Baldwin: He huffed. Douglas was working on his own. He chuffed dutifully through the beautiful countryside. But Douglas had no one to share it with. Altough he tried not to he was beginning to miss his twin. That night, Douglas' Driver took him to see Donald.
  • Douglas: I was just passing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: Have you come to say you're sorry?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald sniffed. This made Douglas very cross.
  • Douglas: I've nothing to be sorry for.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and steamed away in a huff. The next day, Donald was in a bad mood. Duck could see he was getting too close for the buffers.
  • Duck: Look out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck shouted, but it was too late. Donald's driver was very cross.
  • Donald's Driver: This would've happened if you were working with Douglas.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Donald knew he was right and Duck knew he couldn't pull Donald back onto the rails. So he went for help. Douglas was sadly finishing his work as Duck steamed into the depot.
  • Duck: Donald is in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Douglas: Donald in trouble?
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas cried.
  • Douglas: I'm on my way!
  • Alec Baldwin: And he steamed off as fast as he could. Douglas struggled and struggled, he finally pulled his twin gently back on to the tracks. He was relief Donald wasn't hurt.
  • Donald: Thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald said.
  • Donald: And I'm sorry.
  • Douglas: No, I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Insisted Donald.
  • Duck: Don't argue about who's sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: Just be glad you're back together.
  • Alec Baldwin: And they were.
  • (Another nameplate 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 nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Diseasel)
  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben are tank engine twins. Each has four wheels, a tiny chimney and dome and a small squat cab. Their freight cars are filled with China Clay. It is needed for pottery, paper, paint and many other things. The twins are now kept busy pushing and pulling the cars for engines on the main line and for ships in the harbor. One morning, they arranged some cars and went away for more.
  • (The Freight cars disappeared)
  • George Carlin: They returned to find them all gone. The Twins were most surprised. Their drivers examined a patch of oil.
  • Drivers: That's Diesel.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Bill: It's a what'll?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: A diseasel, I think.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Ben: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Bill: Coughs and sneezles spread diseaels.
  • Ben: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the diseasel came.
  • Bill: It isn't!
  • Ben: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben were horrified.
  • Bill: But the diseasel will magic us away like the freight cars.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • George Carlin: Replied their drivers.
  • Drivers: We're more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know you're twins. So we'll take away your names and numbers and then this is what we'll do.
  • George Carlin: Puffing hard, the twins set off on their journey to find the diesel. They were looking forward to playing tricks on him. Creeping into the yard, they found the diesel on a siding with missing cars. Ben hid behind, but Bill went bodly alongside.
  • (Bill passes the freight cars and stops next to BoCo)
  • George Carlin: The diesel looked up.
  • BoCo: Do you mind?
  • Bill: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I do. I want my cars back.
  • BoCo: These are mine.
  • George Carlin: Said the diesel.
  • BoCo: Go away.
  • George Carlin: Bill pretended not to be frightened.
  • Bill: You're a big bully.
  • George Carlin: He whimpered.
  • Bill: You'll be sorry.
  • George Carlin: He ran back and hid behind the cars on the other side. Ben now came forward.
  • Ben: Car stealer!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Ben. He ran away too. Bill took his place.
  • (Bill and Ben begin to taunt BoCo several times)
  • George Carlin: This went on and on till the diesel eyes nearly popped out.
  • BoCo: Stop! You're making me giddy.
  • George Carlin: The two engines gazed at him.
  • BoCo: Are there two of you?
  • Bill: Yes, we're twins.
  • BoCo: I might have known it.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Edward bustled up.
  • Edward: Bill and Ben, why are you playing here?
  • Bill: We're not playing.
  • George Carlin: Protested Bill.
  • Ben: We're rescuing our cars.
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Ben.
  • Ben: Even you don't take our cars without asking, but this diseasel did.
  • Edward: There's no cause to be rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward severly.
  • Edward: This engine is a Metropolitan Vickers, diesel electric type 2.
  • George Carlin: The twins were most impressed.
  • Bill: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • BoCo: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: The diesel smiled.
  • BoCo: Call me BoCo. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the cars.
  • Edward: That's all right then.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: Now off you go, Bill and Ben. Fetch BoCo's cars, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • George Carlin: He said to BoCo.
  • Edward: But they're mattening at times.
  • George Carlin: BoCo chuckled.
  • BoCo: Mattening...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • BoCo: ...is the word.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin One Good Turn)
  • George Carlin: Bill and Ben are the most mischievous engines working on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. They're kept busy pushing and pulling cars up and down the line that runs from the china clay works to the harbour yard. They like to have fun together and often play tricks on the workmen. But sometimes, their teasing ways can get them into trouble. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Important goods have arrived in the big yard. Bill and Ben, i need you to help the other engines.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes, of course, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied the twins. They set off happily on their important mission. BoCo was resting in the yard when suddenly he heard a pair of familiar whistles.
  • BoCo: Hmm.
  • George Carlin: Sighed BoCo.
  • BoCo: Here comes trouble.
  • Bill: Sir Topham Hatt told us you were tired.
  • George Carlin: Teased Bill.
  • Bill: He asked us to take all your cars for you.
  • BoCo: You two never stopped do you? But i'm wise to your pranks and we do need help here.
  • George Carlin: The twins were soon busy pushing and pulling the heavy cars into place. At last, the day's work was done. The twin now became excited. They were going to use the turntable for the first time. Bill went first.
  • Bill: This is fun!
  • George Carlin: He shrieked to Ben. He didn't want to move off at all. The foreman stopped the turntable.
  • Foreman: Please make way for the other engines.
  • George Carlin: He ordered. Bill did so, but the foreman had accidentally stopped the turntable in the wrong place. Bill was on the wrong track and there was Ben puffing directly toward him. The engines came to a grinding halt. They gazed grimly at each other.
  • Bill: I was here first!
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: But you're in my way!
  • George Carlin: Protested Ben.
  • Ben: You'll have to back up again!
  • Bill: I wont!
  • Ben: You will!
  • Bill: I wont!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt came to stop the noise.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If you don't behave, i shall not allow you here again.
  • George Carlin: The next day, Ben was still grumpy.
  • Ben: That Bill! Imagine getting in my way on the turntable. He's a really silly engine!
  • BoCo: The way i heard it.
  • George Carlin: Sighed BoCo.
  • BoCo: It sounded like you were both to blame.
  • Ben: Pooh! You must have heard it all wrong!
  • George Carlin: The twins grumbled about each other all day. Even kind Edward lost patience.
  • Edward: All this grumbling spreads bad atmosfere in the yard.
  • BoCo: You're quite right and that's why i come up with a plan.
  • George Carlin: BoCo whispered his plan to Edward. Then his driver told Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll start making arrangements right away.
  • George Carlin: The next morning he called Bill and Ben into the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: BoCo is taking a special train to the harbour. His regular heavy goods train is waiting on the siding. You can pull it together.
  • Bill and Ben: But, but...
  • George Carlin: Protested Bill and Ben who were still not speaking to each other.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. I knew i can rely on you two.
  • Ben: I'll take the train myself.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ben.
  • Bill: Go right ahead.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill. Ben was coupled up to the train of freight cars, but they were too heavy for him to move alone.
  • Bill: Go on.
  • George Carlin: Teased Bill.
  • Ben: I can't!
  • George Carlin: Said Ben. Then suddenly, both twins laughed.
  • Bill: I don't think we'll take turns this time, Ben.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I think we better pull together!
  • George Carlin: Ben was delighted. It was good to be helping each other. Best of all, it was good to be friends again.
  • (Another nameplate sequence happens and we begin Heroes)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Bill and Ben were busy at the quarry, pushing and pulling cars filled with clay into their proper places. The twins are cheeky and love playing tricks. But they we're growing restless.
  • Ben: Listen, Bill.
  • George Carlin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: Can you hear something?
  • Bill: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Something different.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Bill: I can't hear anything different.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ben.
  • Ben: Everything is the same. Sounds the same, looks the same. What we need is a surprise.
  • Bill: Surprise what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill. Before Ben could answer, the quarry master arrived.
  • Quarry Master: I have just received a message from Sir Topham Hatt. He wants you to go to the station at the harbour.
  • Bill: I wonder what we've done this time.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill anxiously.
  • Ben: It must be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ben.
  • Bill: Why me?
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Bill.
  • Bill: I've not done anything.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Edward is taking the children on a special trip today. I want you to go to the station and look after cars there.
  • Bill and Ben: We'll do our best, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. Gordon spoke severly to them.
  • Gordon: You must behave here. You're on the main line now.
  • Ben: Actually, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Giggled Ben.
  • Ben: When we saw you, we thought this was the scrapyard.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Just make sure that my coaches are ready for my evening train.
  • George Carlin: And he fumed away. The twins laughed and set to work.
  • Bill and Ben: This was easy.
  • George Carlin: They said to each other.
  • Bill and Ben: We know all about cars.
  • George Carlin: But i'm afraid they didn't.
  • Freight Cars: No need for that.
  • George Carlin: Shouted the cars as the twins pushed them into place.
  • Freight Cars: We'll show you around, we want to help.
  • Bill and Ben: Thank you very much.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill and Ben. The cars giggled and began their tricks. Evening came. The yard was in a dreadful muddle. The twins had left the cars tell them where to put things. Gordon and the passengers waited impatiently outside the station while Bill and Ben tried to sort things out. But by the time Gordon was able to leave, it was very late indeed. Next day the twins were working at the quarry again.
  • Bill: That's a strange noise.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Bill.
  • Bill: I never heard a noise like that before.
  • Bill's Driver: I have.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver nervously.
  • Bill's Driver: It sounds like a rockslide to me.
  • George Carlin: Then came the alarm.
  • Quarry Master: Danger! Clear the quarry!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the quarry master. Workmen scrambled into the cars.
  • Bill and Ben: Thank goodness we're here.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. They were just puffing out of the quarry when...
  • Quarry Master: Help! Wait for me!
  • George Carlin: A workman had been left behind. Ben waited as the man climbed quickly aboard. The twins left the quarry just in time. Everyone was safe, but rubble lay all around.
  • Bill: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: This wasn't our fault. I hope Sir Topham Hatt will understand.
  • George Carlin: And indeed, he did. Next day, he arrived with Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, you still had a lot to learn about cars, don't you? But you acted quickly and bravely an emergency. So three cheers for Bill and Ben our heroes. Hip hip, hooray, hooray, hooray!
  • Bill: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: Being called heroes, well, it's, it's...
  • Ben: It's a really nice surprise.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Ben.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Double Teething Troubles)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben the Tank Engine twins work in the clay mines and quarries near brendam docks. Their work is important but they can be hot and dirty. Sometimes this makes the twins naughty. One morning, they were feeling very naughty indeed.
  • Bill: That's my line of cars!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Bill.
  • Ben: It's not, it's mine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Ben.
  • Ben: Yours it's over there.
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Their friend BoCo was worried.
  • BoCo: Stop quarreling you two or the only thing you had left to share is...
  • (Crash)
  • BoCo: Trouble.
  • Bill: Silly!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Bill.
  • Ben: Silly yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Ben.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, behave yourselves.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's clear to me that we need another engine to help out. There's only one available. He's new and key to make an impression.
  • BoCo: If I were you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered BoCo.
  • BoCo: I can back to work right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Sir Topham Hatt was having doubts about his own decision.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope the new diesel doesn't cause even more confusion. He's bound to have teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.
  • Derek: Oh, my grease and oil. I wasn't expecting this hill. Oh, what's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: BoCo came to the rescue.
  • Derek: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the diesel.
  • Derek: I'm all hot and bothered. I've got teething troubles, you know.
  • Alec Baldwin: The news soon spread.
  • Thomas: Apparently it's teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Thomas to Percy.
  • Percy: Hey, you two. This new diesel's got a toothache. Good luck.
  • Bill: Why does Percy want to wish us good luck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Because he knows we'll need it. A diesel with a toothache must be the worst diesel of all.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then their manager spoke to them.
  • Manager: You will take your loads to the docks and rest there tonight. There's a lot of hard work to do tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: It was dark when the twins reached the docks. They left the freight cars by the key and scurried off to the shed.
  • Duck: You two looked glum.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Duck.
  • Bill: It's the new diesel's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Bill.
  • Bill: He's got a toothache.
  • Duck: He hasn't got a toothache he's got teething troubles. That means he's new and this causes some problems. In his case it's his cooling system.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, the twins heard an unfamiliar whistle.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, no! It's the new Diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: And it was.
  • Derek: Hello. I'll sort this train out. You take the front and I'll push 'em behind. Ha, ha. What fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: All went well as they set off. Then they came to a hill.
  • Bill: Come on, come on! Push harder, you silly diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted Bill. But the diesel couldn't push any harder.
  • Derek: I'm overheating again.
  • Bill: Oh, pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill.
  • Driver: You know what?
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Driver: Let's try and finish the journey anyway. It means we'll have to pull the diesel as well. Can you do it twins?
  • Bill and Ben: We'll try.
  • Alec Baldwin: And sure enough they could. That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Bill and Ben. I sent the new diesel back to the works. Can you manage alone?
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes sir.
  • Bill: BoCo.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Bill.
  • Bill: I'm sorry we were rude to you.
  • Ben: And...
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Ben.
  • Ben: The new diesel was really quite friendly.
  • Duck: And you know what friends do?
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Duck.
  • Bill and Ben: Know what?
  • Duck: They always say good night to each other.
  • Alec Baldwin: And so they did, but they still chattered about the diesel and his teething troubles all night long.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Buffer Bother)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben are quarry engines. They are twins. They play together, they shunt freight cars together. They even get up to naughtyness together. Whenever you find Bill you will find Ben. Whether you find Ben you will find Bill. Sir Topham Hatt had come to inspect his quarry engines. He found that Mavis and Bill were in fine working order.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Unfortunately, Ben.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your buffers are damaged. You must report to the engine works inmediately for a new set of buffers. Mavis you will have to work with Bill until Ben returns.
  • Mavis: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis and Sir Topham Hatt drove away. Ben was happy.
  • Ben: I'm going to get new buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: He gloated to Bill.
  • Bill: Well I should get new buffers too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill complained.
  • Bill: We're twins. We do everything together.
  • Ben: But you don't need new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben teased.
  • Bill: You're getting new buffers because you're getting clumsy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill enviously.
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Mavis: Will you two stop being crackpots?
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis scolded.
  • Mavis: Now come on, Bill, we've got work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben couldn't wait to get new buffers. Later, Bill watched as Ben chuffed away to the engine works. He was green with envy, he wanted new buffers too. Bill returned to his job but he wasn't thinking about work. All he could think about was Ben's new buffers.
  • Bill: Ooh!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: (sneezes)
  • Mavis: Be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: And stop thinking about Ben's new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill tried thinking about birds, he tried thinking about trees, he tried thinking about anything but Ben and his brand new buffers. But it didn't work.
  • Bill: I want new buffers too!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Mavis: Just be happy you're in good working order.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Bill: It's not fair!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill huffed and he wheeshed soot all over Mavis.
  • Mavis: Bill!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Mavis.
  • Bill: Oops, sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill. Bill tried his best to get with his work. But the troublesome trucks have spotted a chance for a tease.
  • Trucks: Poor poor Bill, he works, he suffers, while Ben his twin gets brand new buffers!
  • Bill: I might not have new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Bill: But I still know how to biff troublesome trucks.
  • Mavis: No!
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis cried. But it was too late. Ben puffed into the quarry with his shiny new buffers just in time to hear...
  • Bill: Bust my buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Bill.
  • Ben: I think you have.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived and saw Bill's broken buffers, he was not happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You behaved badly Bill.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you have anything to say for yourself?
  • Bill: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Before you get new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt continued.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to think what it means to be a responsible reliable engine.
  • Bill: Yes Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Answered Bill weakly. After Sir Topham Hatt left, Ben rolled up to Bill with his new buffers gleaming.
  • Bill: They are nice buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill said.
  • Ben: Thanks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben said.
  • Ben: I'm sorry I teased you.
  • Bill: That's all right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I was naughty too.
  • Ben: Of course you are.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: We're twins.
  • (We then find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the HiT Entertainment logo appears)
