  • (We then see the Thomas Season 3 intro and we begin Daisy)
  • George Carlin: Percy and Toby were worried. Thomas' recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with them with important news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here is Daisy the Diesel Rail-car, who has come to help while Thomas is...indisposed.
  • Percy: Please, sir, will she go when Thomas comes back, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That depends.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Toby: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was not easy to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Daisy: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • George Carlin: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Daisy: This is better.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • George Carlin: The rubbish turned out to be Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta who were most offended.
  • Annie: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • George Carlin: They fumed. Percy and Toby had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.
  • (Percy and Toby take Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta away)
  • George Carlin: The engines woke next morning feeling exhausted. Daisy, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Daisy: Oooh! Oooh!
  • George Carlin: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Daisy: Look at me.
  • George Carlin: She purred to the passengers.
  • Daisy: I'm the latest diesel, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Thomas' bumpy old Annie and Clarabel now.
  • George Carlin: The passengers waited for Daisy to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indignant.
  • Daisy: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Daisy's Driver: Surely.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Daisy: I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: Percy can do it. He loves messing about with freight cars.
  • George Carlin: She began to shudder violently.
  • Daisy's Driver: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • George Carlin: Daisy lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Daisy: Told you.
  • George Carlin: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Daisy: It's fitter's orders.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Daisy: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exams me carefully. Daisy, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • George Carlin: Finished Daisy.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • George Carlin: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Sir Topham Hatt send us such a feeble...
  • Daisy: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Daisy.
  • Daisy: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • George Carlin: So they uncoupled the van, and Daisy purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Daisy: That's a good story.
  • George Carlin: She chuckled.
  • Daisy: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • George Carlin: But she said it to herself.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Predicament)
  • George Carlin: Daisy the Diesel Rail-car's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened to bulls and cows, and she remain very lazy and scuttled. One day, Toby brought Henrietta to the station where Percy was grumbling shunting.
  • Toby: Hello, Percy. I see Daisy's left the milk behind again.
  • Percy: I had to make a special journey within I suppose. Anyone would think I've nothing to do.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Percy.
  • Toby: Tell you what?
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Toby: I'll take the milk, you fetch my freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Percy had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the freight cars about.
  • Percy: Hurry along.
  • George Carlin: He said. The freight cars grumbled to each other.
  • Cars: This is Toby's place! Percy's got no right to poke his funnel in here and push us around.
  • George Carlin: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Cars: Pay Percy back! Pay Percy back!
  • Percy: Come along.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy.
  • Percy: No nonsense.
  • Cars: We'll give him nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Giggled the freight cars. But they followed so quietly that Percy thought they were under control. Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead: All Trains Stop To Pin Down Brakes.
  • Percy: Peep peep! Brakes, Conductor, please!
  • George Carlin: But before he could check them the freight cars surged ahead.
  • Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Percy: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag but was too late to switch Percy to the runaway sidings. Frantically trying to grip the rails Percy slid into the yard.
  • Percy: Peep! Peep! Look out!
  • (Percy crashed into the break van)
  • George Carlin: The break van was in smithereens. Percy's driver and fireman had jumped clear but Percy was stranded. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. Toby and Daisy had helped to clear the wreckage but Percy remained on his perch of freight cars.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We must now try.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: To run a branch line with Toby and a diesel. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Percy.
  • Percy: I am sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must stay here till we are ready.
  • George Carlin: Continued Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And you really must be more careful with freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Percy sighed. The freight cars groaned beneath his wheels. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severely to Daisy too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My engines work hard. I send lazy engines away.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was ashamed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: However, Toby says you worked hard after Percy's accident. So you shall have another chance.
  • Daisy: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: I will work hard. Toby says he'll help me.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Excellent. What Toby doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. But our Toby's an experienced engine.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas came back, and Percy was sent to be mended. Annie and Clarabel were delighted to see Thomas again and he took them to a run at once. All were now friends, and Toby has taunt Daisy a great deal. She shooed a cow the other day all by herself. That show's you, doesn't it?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Whistles and Sneezes)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: 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: Henry whistles too much. No respectable engine ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • George Carlin: Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Henry.
  • (We hear a screeching noise)
  • Henry: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon. But Gordon never whistles like that.
  • George Carlin: It was Gordon. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Henry and he didn't look at Edward. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Edward: Well.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: And he told Edward what Gordon had said. Meanwhile, Gordon screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone covered their ears. Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take him away!
  • George Carlin: He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place.
  • (Two fitters fix Gordon's whistle with progress)
  • George Carlin: That night, Gordon slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: But we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: 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.
  • Henry: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • (The boys smash the coaches' windows with stones)
  • Henry: 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!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • George Carlin: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Henry: Yes, yes.
  • Henry's Driver: Well then.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry 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.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry has plenty of ashes.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Henry's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • George Carlin: Henry felt more stuffed up. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Henry: Ah-choo!
  • (Henry sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver. Henry went home, hoping that next time he saw Gordon and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Tender Engines)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Gordon was in the yard taking on a large supply of coal.
  • James: That's the third load of coal you had today, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: Some might say you're being rather greedy.
  • Gordon: I'm an important engine.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gordon.
  • Gordon: Important engines need plenty of coal, but I doubted if you would understand that, James.
  • George Carlin: James snorted and went about his work. Later, Gordon was taking on water from a standpipe because the water tower was under repair.
  • Duck: I wouldn't drink too much of that water if I were you, Gordon. It might give you boiler-ache.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: What's this? Educating Gordon day? First James, now you, Duck. Big engines have big needs. Little engines are just annoying.
  • Duck: Don't say I didn't warn you.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Duck. Later, Gordon steamed into the yard at the big station.
  • Gordon: That's what I need.
  • George Carlin: Explained Gordon. There emergen out of his sheds were two shiny tenders.
  • Gordon: Now If I had two tenders.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: I wouldn't need to stop so often. And I wouldn't have to listen to silly little engines.
  • Driver: Those tenders belong to a visitor.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. Diesel sidled up alongside.
  • Diesel: 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 diesels are taking over, and we don't need tenders to make us important, not even one.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was most upset. He was feeling just the same next morning.
  • Gordon: I'm not happy.
  • Duck: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: It's boiler-ache.
  • Gordon: It's not boiler-ache.
  • George Carlin: Protested Gordon.
  • Gordon: It's...
  • Henry: Of course it is.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Henry.
  • Henry: That water's bad. Have a good wash-out, then you feel a different engine. Your boiler must be full of sludge.
  • Gordon: Don't be vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon. He backed on his train hissing mournfully.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: I can't, sir. Is it true what diesels said, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What does his say?
  • Gordon: That diesels are taking over.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry, Gordon. That will never happen on my railway.
  • Gordon: One more thing, sir. Why did the visitor have two tenders?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Because he lives on the railway with long difference between coaling depots.
  • George Carlin: Gordon felt better. But Henry started complaining. He banged some cars angrily.
  • Henry: I always worked hard enough for two.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Henry: I deserved another tender.
  • George Carlin: Duck whispered something to Donald. He was going to play a trick on Henry.
  • Duck: Henry?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Duck: Would you like my tenders?
  • Henry: Yours?! What have you got to do with tenders?
  • Duck: All right.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: The deals off. Would you like them, Donald?
  • Donald: I wouldn't deprive you of the honor.
  • George Carlin: Replied Donald.
  • Duck: It is a great honor.
  • George Carlin: Continued Duck thoughtfully.
  • Duck: But I'm only a tank engine. Perhaps James might...
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry hastily.
  • Henry: How many tenders have you and when can I have them?
  • Duck: Uh, hmm, I have six and you can have them this evening.
  • Henry: Six lovely tenders!
  • George Carlin: Chortled Henry.
  • Henry: What a splendid sight I'll be.
  • George Carlin: Henry was excited all day.
  • Henry: Do you think it'll be all right?
  • George Carlin: He asked for umpteenth time.
  • Duck: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: They're already now.
  • George Carlin: The other engines waited where they can each get a good view. But Henry wasn't a splendid sight at all. His six tenders were very old, dirty and filled with boiler sludge.
  • Gordon: Have a good wash-out, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Called a voice.
  • Gordon: That's right. You'll feel a different engine now.
  • George Carlin: Henry was not sure, but he thought his voice belongs to Gordon's.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Escape!)
  • George Carlin: One day, Edward was talking to Trevor when Douglas steamed by. He was pulling a train of heavy coal cars.
  • Douglas: Come on, Edward. Stop gossping in the sun when there's work to be done.
  • George Carlin: Later, Edward spoke to Douglas.
  • Edward: Trevor and I are old friends and you and he had in lot of common too.
  • Douglas: We do?
  • George Carlin: Quizzed Douglas.
  • Douglas: And what would that be?
  • Edward: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward quietly. Douglas gasped.
  • Douglas: Don't mention that word! It makes me wheels wobble!
  • Edward: It does the same to Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: He was been sent to the scrapyard, but the Vicar and I saved him and now he's really useful again. Even so, Sir Topham Hatt certainly does need another steam engine here.
  • Douglas: Aye, he does, and quickly.
  • George Carlin: That night, Douglas was still working. He had taken the midnight goods train to a station at a faraway part of the island where only the diesels worked. He was just shunting, ready for his return journey, when...
  • Douglas: That's sounds like a steam engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought. The hiss came again.
  • Douglas: Who's there?
  • George Carlin: Asked Douglas. A whisper came.
  • Oliver: Are you Sir Topham Hatt's engine?
  • Douglas: Aye, and proud of it.
  • Oliver: I'm Oliver and I'm with my break van, Toad, we've run out of coal and had no more steam.
  • Douglas: But what are you doing?
  • Oliver: Escaping?
  • Douglas: From what?
  • Oliver: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Douglas shivered. Then, he remembered Edward's story about saving Trevor.
  • Douglas: I'll be glad to help ya. It lacked look those who were ready to scrap but i'm taking you away.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and firemen agreed to help too. Everyone worked fast.
  • Douglas: No time to turn round. I'll run tender first. Come on.
  • (Dog barking)
  • George Carlin: But before they could clear the station they were stopped.
  • Foreman: Aha!
  • George Carlin: Called the foreman.
  • Foreman: A great western engine and a break van too. You can't take these.
  • Driver: Aye, but there all for us.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas' driver.
  • Driver: See for yourself.
  • George Carlin: The foreman looked all over Oliver.
  • Foreman: Seems in order. Right away, guard.
  • (Douglas and Oliver make an escape)
  • Douglas: That was a near thing.
  • Oliver: We have worse.
  • George Carlin: Replied Oliver and they forced ahead. It was daylight when their journey ended.
  • Douglas: We're home!
  • George Carlin: Cried Douglas.
  • Driver: Shh!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: There the works. We'll find a place for Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Oliver said goodbye and thank you, and Douglas puffed away. The next day, Douglas told the other engines all about Oliver.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt would have to know.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Gordon: Douglas should tell him at once.
  • George Carlin: Added Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, here he is.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now what's this all about?
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but we do need another engine.
  • Gordon: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Ventured Gordon.
  • Gordon: A steam engine, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, unless one saved from scrap, there's little hope.
  • Douglas: But sir, one has...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes indeed. And thanks to you, Douglas, he is now at our works. Oliver is just what we need for Duck's branch line.
  • George Carlin: Everyone cheered. Now Oliver and Toad are mended and painted in full great western colors. Duck and Oliver are happy on their branch line. The others laughed at first and called it "The Little Western". Duck and Oliver were delighted and so the little western, it will always be.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Oliver Owns Up)
  • George Carlin: On a clear day when the sky is blue and there is just enough breeze to blow the clouds away, you can stand on a big hill above the valley and watch Duck and Oliver far below, busily at work on Duck's branch line near the sea. The two engines are very proud of their matching coats of gleaming color. Oliver often talks about the time that Douglas saved him from scrap.
  • Oliver: If it wasn't for his help...
  • George Carlin: Oliver would say.
  • Oliver: I might have caught when I ran away from the scrapyard, and I would never come to live here on Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: The other engines all wanted to know about Oliver's adventures.
  • Henry: Amazing!
  • George Carlin: Remarked Henry.
  • James: Oliver...
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: ...has resource.
  • Gordon: And sagacity.
  • George Carlin: Put in Gordon.
  • Percy: What does that mean?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Thomas: I think...
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: ...it's about being clever and wise.
  • Gordon: He is...
  • George Carlin: Finished Gordon.
  • Gordon: ...an example to us all.
  • George Carlin: I'm sorry to say that Oliver became very puffed up in the smokebox.
  • Oliver: Henry says I'm amazing. He's right.
  • George Carlin: He whistled as he swooshed along the line. One morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are doing well. Now you must learn how to look after freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars. The other engines warned Oliver but he took no notice.
  • Oliver: You think I can manage.
  • George Carlin: He said huffly.
  • Oliver: Gordon knows better. He's says I'm sagacious.
  • Duck: You may be good gracious or whatever you called it, but cars can be troublesome and...
  • Donald: Say no more, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Interested Donald.
  • Donald: It's a pity, but the wee engine just learned for itself.
  • George Carlin: Oliver pulled some loaded cars into a siding and pushed the empties into the chute. Then he came back to take the loaded cars away. But they were comfortable and didn't want to move.
  • Car 1: What right is he to poke his funnel in here?
  • Car 2: We want Duck!
  • Car 3: Or Donald!
  • Car 4: Or Douglas!
  • Oliver: Look sharp.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Oliver.
  • Cars: That's not the way to speak.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the cars.
  • Cars: We'll get even.
  • George Carlin: Oliver heard nothing. The cars move smoothly at first, then suddenly, Oliver found them forced forward. His driver applied the brakes, but they were useless against the surging cars.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the cars. Oliver formed hard, but still they forced them on and on. At last, the cars grew tired.
  • Oliver: I'm winning.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Oliver. But it was too late.
  • (Oliver falls into the turntable well)
  • George Carlin: Oliver layed bruised and benuised, bunkered down in the turntable well. Duck survaved the damaged.
  • Duck: Hello, Oliver. Are you being a good gracious engine? Beg pardon, we really don't like this sort of surprise. Donald and Douglas will miss their turntable until it was mended.
  • George Carlin: That night, Oliver was hold gently to safety.
  • Oliver: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: He said to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Oliver: I shouldn't listen to Duck's advice. I don't feel good gracious or whatever it is. I just feel silly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Oliver.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now you know the damage cars can do.
  • Oliver: Yes I do, sir. I look like a load of scrap iron.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oh, I don't think so.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you do need to go to the works to be mended.
  • George Carlin: The other engines now felt sorry for Oliver.
  • Duck: The branch line would be a same without you.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Duck.
  • Duck: Come back soon.
  • George Carlin: A few days later, Oliver did come back. His coat paint glistended in the sun. He's a wiser engine too and never made the same about cars again.
  • (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.
