Transcript

  • (We open this episode with a CGI Thomas passing through a bridge)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Friends: Making Tracks To Great Destinations.
  • (We then see the engine countdown and we begin the season)
  • (Upon this, we begin with Thomas being ready for the morning)
  • (We then find a book with Thomas in it. It opens and reads itself)
  • Rev W. Awdry: Dear Christopher. Here is your friend Thomas the Tank Engine. He wanted to come out of the station yard and see the world. These stories tell you how he did it. I hope you will like them because you helped me to make them. Your loving daddy.
  • (The series then starts with the Season 11 intro)
  • Children: (singing) They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight. Shunting trucks and hauling freight. Red and green and brown and blue. They're the really useful crew. All with different rows to play round Tidmouth Sheds or far away. Down the hills and round the bends, Thomas and his friends.
  • (After that, the Island of Sodor opening sequence starts)
  • Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is surronded by beautiful blue sea. It has fields of green and sandy yellow beaches. There are rivers, streams, and lots of trees where the birds sing. There are windmills and a coal mine, and docks are visitors to the island arrived. The island also has lots and lots of railway lines. Who's that puffing down the track?
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Michael Brandon: It's Thomas! Hello, Thomas!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: Hello, everybody! Welcome to the Island of Sodor!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Toby's bell rings)
  • (Trevor's whistle toots)
  • (Edward's whistle toots)
  • (A wheesh of steam appears and we begin today's episode)
  • Michael Brandon: Today, on the Island of Sodor, we'll see what happens when Percy has to collect some important baggage.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: And we'll share some fun times with Emily.
  • (Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • Michael Brandon: But first, Thomas has to collect a very smelly special.
  • (An engine puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Stinky Cheese)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and The Stinky Cheese. The Island of Sodor is beautiful all year round. In the summer, the hedges are full of brightly-colored birds, the fields are full of animals, and the smell of wild flowers fills the air. Thomas was at the coaling plant. He was shunting freight cars with Diesel, 'Arry and Bert. Thomas didn't like working with diesel engines. And the diesel engines didn't like working with Thomas.
  • Diesel: The problem with working with steamies is that they are much too stinky.
  • 'Arry: And Thomas is the most stinky steamy ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Diesel, 'Arry and Bert laughed and laughed.
  • Thomas: It's not steamies who are stinky.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas puffed crossly.
  • Thomas: It's the diesels.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then Sir Topham Hatt arrived at the yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, I need you to go to the dairy. There is a delivery waiting for you there.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas was happy to be away from the diesels. He was pleased to be going to the dairy.
  • Thomas: Maybe I will be taking cream to the chocolate factory.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted. But when Thomas arrived at the dairy, his freight cars were full of stinky cheese.
  • Thomas: Yuck!
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's the stinkiest cheese I have ever smelled.
  • Dairy Foreman: You must take it to the docks before the ship leaves.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the dairy foreman. Thomas buffered up. Then he puffed to the docks with the stinky cheese.
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Everyone will smell this cheese for miles.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas saw Diesel waiting at a junction.
  • Thomas: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: If Diesel smells how stinky I am, he'll tell everyone that I really am the stinkiest engine on Sodor. And I don't want everyone to think I'm stinky.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed. Thomas backed quickly along the track.
  • Signalman: Thomas stop!
  • Michael Brandon: The signalman called.
  • Signalman: If you go that way, you'll be late.
  • Michael Brandon: But Thomas had already gone. Thomas raced through the countryside.
  • Thomas: No one will smell how stinky I am now.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed. But then Thomas saw 'Arry waiting in a siding.
  • Thomas: Oh, no, it's 'Arry.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: I can't let him smell how stinky I am.
  • Michael Brandon: So Thomas backed quickly away. And turned left at the next junction. Next, Thomas saw Bert. So this time he turned right.
  • Thomas: Wherever I go there are diesel engines.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. Thomas puffed backwards and forwards across the island. He wanted to stay away from Diesel, 'Arry and Bert. But then there was trouble.
  • Thomas: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm back at the dairy, right where I started.
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly, Thomas saw 'Arry rumbling towards him. Thomas backed away as fast as he could. But he didn't see Bert pulling up behind him. Thomas bumped into Bert! And the stinky cheese shot into the air and splattered down all over Thomas Bert and 'Arry.
  • 'Arry: Now we're really stinky.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned 'Arry.
  • Bert: The most stinky engines ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned Bert. 'Arry and Bert rushed straight to the wash-down. Thomas wanted to go to the wash down, too, but Thomas's cheese was all over the track.
  • Thomas: What am I going to do?
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed sadly. Then the dairy foreman arrived.
  • Dairy Foreman: Thomas there is another cheese load ready at the dairy. But you'll have to puff quickly.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the foreman.
  • Dairy Foreman: The boat is waiting for you.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon Thomas was racing to the docks with a new delivery of cheese. Thomas could smell the stinky cheese.
  • Thomas: Phew.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed. But he knew he had to carry on.
  • Thomas: Must get to the docks, must get to the docks.
  • Michael Brandon: He chuffed.
  • James: Oh, yuck, what a smelly delivery.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed James as he passed. Even though his friends could smell the stinky cheese, Thomas chuffed on. When he arrived at the docks, Diesel was there being unloaded.
  • Diesel: P.U. You really are the stinkiest steam engine on Sodor, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: He oiled.
  • Dockworkers: Thomas has brought the stinky cheese!
  • Michael Brandon: Cheered the dockworkers.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Sodor cheese is famous for being really stinky. And this is the most stinky Sodor cheese I have ever smelled. You are a really useful engine.
  • Thomas: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now go to the wash-down.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt. Just then, 'Arry and Bert arrived at the docks. They were shiny, clean and fresh from the wash-down.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Diesel, 'Arry and Bert.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now you can shunt the stinky cheese.
  • 'Arry, Diesel and Bert: Oh, no.
  • Michael Brandon: Groaned 'Arry, Diesel and Bert.
  • Thomas: P.U.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a stink!
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin a learning segment)
  • Michael Brandon: Here are some dots. If we join the dots, we will see one of the engines on Sir Topham Hatt's railway. I wonder which engine that is. Let's join the dots and find out. Here we go. There's a large tender. The cab. And there's the dome. This is a very big engine. It's got a very small funnel. Can you tell who it is yet? Around the buffers and the wheels. It's got lots of wheels. Do you know who it is? That's right! It's Gordon! Hello, Gordon!
  • (Gordon's whistle toots)
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Navigation)
  • Children: When to stop and when to go These are things you have to know When to start, when to brake Choices that you have to make To know what signals mean Where you're going, where you've been Where it's straight, where to turn All these things you have to learn Get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination Get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination Over bridges, through the tunnel Smoke is streaming from your funnel Puffing through the countryside Taking people on a ride When driving down the roads You'll know where to take your load If you're flying through the air Navigation gets you there Get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination Get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination.
  • Girl: When you know a railway sign You will get there every time You won't get lost again You'll know where and you'll know when.
  • Children: So, get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination Get to know your navigation Handle every situation Every time you leave the station Know you'll reach your destination.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • ​Michael Brandon: The Island of Sodor is a wonderful place. There are lots and lots of engines. Who's that, puffing along the track? It's Emily. Emily is a very special engine. She's painted a deep, dark green. She has big driving wheels and a beautiful brass dome. And Emily is a very proud engine. She likes to tell other engines how to do their jobs.
  • (A wheesh of steam appears)
  • ​Michael Brandon: One day, Emily had dropped visitors off at the ruined castle. Kings and queens had lived there long ago. It made Emily think she would like to be a queen. Queens tell everyone what to do. Emily saw Toby and Percy, working hard in the shunting yards. Toby had to leave Percy with some very Troublesome Trucks. Toby told Percy not to worry. He would be back soon to help. Emily wanted to play kings and queens. So she decided to play with Percy. She decided to tell him what to do. After all, as queen, she knew best. Emily told Percy to take the Troublesome Trucks along the fast track. Percy was worried. But maybe Emily knew best. Percy puffed off quickly. Then, there was trouble. The speeding trucks hit Mavis. Mavis spilled rocks all over the rails. And a truck knocked over a telephone pole. Then, Toby ran into the pole and was derailed.  Emily gasped. She had caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt was very cross. Emily admitted that she wasn't a queen and she didn't know best. But Emily always likes to be with the other engines. Emily used to live on her own at Knapford Yards.
  • ​(Another wheesh of steam appears)
  • ​Michael Brandon: One day, Sir Topham Hatt decided to knock down the old Tidmouth sheds. Thomas was sent to sleep in Emily's shed. Emily didn't like that. She didn't like Thomas's noisy sleep whistling. It kept her awake all night and made her grumpy. But one night, when Thomas wasn't there, Emily missed him. She even missed his sleep whistle. Thomas was her good friend. She wanted to be with him. Then, Emily went to visit the new Tidmouth sheds. She was very surprised. An extra space had been built especially for her. Emily was very happy. Now she could be with all her friends and with her special friend Thomas. Emily can be a big, bossy buffers. She can say things she shouldn't and do things Thomas wouldn't. But her big, brass dome shines brightest when Emily is with her steam team friends.
  • (Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin another learning segment)
  • ​Michael Brandon: Percy is excited. He is going to look for some hidden treasure. This map will help Percy find the treasure. The treasure is hidden under the red cross. The dotted line will lead Percy to the cross. Percy is ready to go. Can you help him? Percy has come to a junction. Which way should he go now? Should Percy go towards the hill or towards the lake? The dotted line goes towards the hill. That's right. So Percy should go that way. Percy has come to another junction. Which way should he go now? Should Percy go towards the castle or towards the farm? The dotted line goes towards the castle. That's right. So Percy should go that way. Percy has arrived at the castle. He's very near the treasure now. Which way should he go next? Towards the village or towards the cross?  That's right. Percy has found the treasure. But he couldn't have done it without you. Well done, everyone.
  • ​(Percy's whistle toots)
  • ​(Another puffing by sequence occurs and we begin Percy and The Baggage)
  • Michael Brandon: In summertime, the engines on the Island of Sodor enjoy being busy. Many visitors come to the island. The engines take them to visit many beautiful sights. Percy liked the summer. He was as happy as could be. Sir Topham Hatt came to Tidmouth. He had lots of jobs for Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are to collect the holiday mail, deliver the lights for the town hall, and take the children to their summer party.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was very happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are also to collect my mother's baggage from Maithwaite Station and take it to the airport.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The plane leaves at teatime. It's very, very, very important you get them there on time.
  • Percy: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy excitedly, and he puffed out of Tidmouth as fast as he could. Percy steamed through the sunny countryside. He was very, very happy.
  • Percy: Why, this could be the most fun day ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy. Percy came to a junction. The left track went to Maithwaite Station and to Sir Topham Hatt's mother's bags, and straight ahead was the postal depot. Percy thought about which way to go, but not for very long.
  • Percy: Taking the baggage is an easy job.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped.
  • Percy: I can do that later.
  • Michael Brandon: And so Percy puffed straight ahead to the postal depot to collect the mail. Percy buffered up to the presents and mail sacks. He wheeshed away as happy as he could be. Percy had lots of stations to go to and lots of people to talk to.
  • Percy: Hello.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped happily. Some of the wagons were uncoupled...and Percy chuffed on with the rest of his deliveries. When everyone saw the parcels and presents, they clapped and cheered. Percy was having a wonderful time. He wished he could do it all over again. Percy wondered what job to do next. He came to another junction. This time, straight ahead was the way to Maithwaite Station and to Sir Topham Hatt's mother's bags, and the left track went to Brendam Docks. The lights for the town hall were waiting there. Percy thought about which way to go, but not for very long.
  • Percy: Taking the baggage is an easy job.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Percy: I can do that later.
  • Michael Brandon: And so Percy puffed away to the left. Percy collected the lights from the docks and he set off for the town hall. Percy pulled up outside the town hall. The people on the platforms smiled and waved. They were looking forward to seeing the town hall all lit up. Percy was feeling more and more excited.
  • Percy: Now, I can take the children to the party.
  • Michael Brandon: He peeped.
  • Percy: That's the best job of all.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy came to the junction again. Sir Topham Hatt's mother's bags were still waiting at Maithwaite, but Percy wasn't thinking about the bags. He was thinking about the children. Percy collected the children in no time at all. Soon, Percy was whistling...and the children were singing. Everyone was having a great time. Then, Percy needed to take on water. Sir Topham Hatt drove by. He was taking his mother to the airport. Percy suddenly remembered the bags.
  • Percy: Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: I must collect the baggage now or Sir Topham Hatt's mother will leave without it.
  • Michael Brandon: Percy was worried.
  • Percy: Now I can't take the children to the party.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed quickly away. He had to find someone to help him. Percy saw Edward resting in a siding.
  • Percy: Edward.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy.
  • Percy: I'm late to take Sir Topham Hatt's mother's bags to the airport. Will you take the children to the party for me, please?
  • Edward: I'd be delighted.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Edward. So Percy left the passenger car in the siding. He peeped good-bye to the children...and raced to Maithwaite Station. Percy buffered up to the baggage and wheeshed away as fast as his wheels could carry him. Percy had to arrive at the airport before Sir Topham Hatt. Percy raced through tunnels and he chuffed over bridges.
  • Percy: Why didn't I do this job first?
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: Why did I leave it to last?
  • Michael Brandon: Percy arrived at the airport just in time. Jeremy the plane was waiting. The baggage was unloaded just as Sir Topham Hatt's car arrived.
  • Percy: I made it on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Peeped Percy. He was relieved.
  • Dowager Hatt: You're a very reliable engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Boomed Sir Topham Hatt's mother as she boarded Jeremy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Percy.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Percy was pleased. Jeremy soared into the sky. Sir Topham Hatt waved...and Percy blew his whistle. He'd never leave things to the last minute ever again.
