Script

Act 1

  • (We open this episode with the Thomas and Friends Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is a really useful engine. Here's Percy. He is a very happy engine. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. Henry is long and fast. Here's Edward always here to help.
  • (A passing by 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 deceiver.
  • 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 now and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listened to him anyway.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Donald's Duck)
  • Children (singing): I found a quacker in my tender. She was very, very tame. But she quacked all night and through the day. She was driving me insane. My driver and my fireman tried everything they know to shoo the quacker away from me but she did not want to go. The quacker clearly loves me was impossible to nab. So now we have befriended her. She rides inside my cab. She quacks in stations big and small. She quacks at people too. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but I call her my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but I call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She is quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. She's my quackeroo, she's my quackeroo.
  • (Dilly quacking)
  • (Donald's whistle toots)
  • (We follow the commercials after Act 1)

Act 2

  • (Act 2 opens with 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.
  • Ben: We'll do our best, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. Gordon spoke severely 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.
  • (We hear a loud siren)
  • 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.
  • (The avalanche buries the entire quarry completely)
  • George Carlin: 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 passing by sequence occurs and we begin Night Train)
  • Children: (singing) See how the night sky glows, See the light from the night train, The fire glow from the night train. On down the line he blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! On down the line he blows. All through the night he goes. Hear the sound of the night train, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train. Hear how his whistle blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his whistle blows. Pulling, heaving, big engine breathing. Pistons pushing side by side. Driver checking, gauging, peering, Fireman stoking by his side. On down the line they go. Fast track for the mail train, Clear away for the post train. Non-stop all night they go... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Non-stop all night they go. On down the line he blows Hear the sound of the night train, The chugga-chug-chugg of the night train. Hear how his whistle blows... Woooooo-oooooo!!! Hear how his whistle blows. On down the line he blows, On down the line he blows.

Act 3

  • (We open Act 3 with 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.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Accidents Will Happen)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Thrills and spills on the railway, it's a life of happiness. But sometimes impatience can lead to carelessness.
  • Boy: (singing) Some think they are smart cats...
  • Girl: (singing) ...and some just know it all.
  • Children: (singing) But sooner or later we all find out that... Accidents happen now and again. Just when you least expect. Just when you think that life is okay, fate comes to collect. Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart. If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. Your best laid plans can turn upside down if you get to confident. Sometime you will slip and slide if that Lady Luck's intent.
  • Girl: (singing) One minute you're riding high...
  • Boy: (singing) ...the next you're on the ground.
  • Children: (singing) But please remember, whatever the weather, you must take care cause... Accidents happen now and again, sometimes just by chance you gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down put it down to experience. Accidents happen now and again, just don't take it all to heart.
  • Girl: If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing whatever you're doing is not what you're thinking.
  • Children: (singing) Accidents, incidents. Accidents, incidents, accidents happen just like that.
  • (Gordon crashed into the wall)
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the A Britt Allcroft Company Production for Gullane Entertainment logo appears)
