Script

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 crashes into the signal box)
  • George Carlin: Donald wasn't hurt, but Sir Topham Hatt was most annoyed.
  • 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!
  • (Douglas smashes the break van to bits)
  • George Carlin: The van was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Edward came to clear the mess. Sir Topham Hatt was on 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.

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! 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)

Home At Last

  • George Carlin: Skarloey had been to the works to be mended. He felt much better. Rusty the Diesel was helping him off his rail car. Skarloey hadn't met the little diesel before.
  • Skarloey: Rusty seems a kindly sort of engine.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Rusty: I help to mend the line and do odd jobs.
  • George Carlin: Explained Rusty.
  • Rusty: I hear everyone is looking forward to seeing you again. Come on.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam was feeling depressed. He was still getting over but he wanted to start work again. Sir Topham Hatt wouldn't let him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Another day's rest will do you good.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Besides, I got a surprise for you.
  • Peter Sam: For me, sir, how nice, sir, what is it, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: The surprise was Skarloey.
  • Peter Sam: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: I'm glad you've come home.
  • George Carlin: They lit Skarloey's fire and he sizzled happily.
  • Skarloey: I feel all excited.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Skarloey: Just like a young engine. Now tell me all the news.
  • Peter Sam: I see you've met Rusty.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: Yes. I like that Diesel.
  • Peter Sam: So do I.
  • George Carlin: Replied Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: It's a pity Duncan doesn't.
  • Skarloey: Who is Duncan?
  • Peter Sam: He came as a spare engine after my accident.
  • George Carlin: Replied Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: Is he useful?
  • Peter Sam: He keeps busy and I'm sure he means well. But he's bouncy and rude. He sings and sways and swivels around. His drivers call it Rock N Roll.
  • Skarloey: I understand.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey gravely. His driver interrupted.
  • Skarloey's Driver: Duncan has done it again, he's stuck in the tunnel. Come on, old boy, we'll have to get him out.
  • George Carlin: Skarloey was pleased. He wanted to run and look forward to meeting Duncan. They found a caboose and some workmen and hurried up the line.
  • Skarloey: How nice and smooth the rails are.
  • George Carlin: Thought Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: They mended all the old bumps. The little diesel has helped to that. What a difference Rusty's made to the line.
  • George Carlin: Quite soon they found Duncan. He was stuck at the far end of the tunnel and he was very cross.
  • Duncan: I'm a plain blunt engine, I speak as I'm fine. Tunnels should be tunnels and not rabbit holes. This railway is no good at all.
  • Duncan's Driver: Don't be silly!
  • George Carlin: Snapped his Driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: This tunnel is quite big enough for engines who don't Rock N Roll.
  • George Carlin: It took a long time to clear away the rocks and set Duncan free again. At last, Skarloey was able to push Duncan and his coaches safely through.
  • (Skarloey frees Duncan by pushing him and his coaches through)
  • George Carlin: The caboose was left on the siding and the workmen stayed to make sure everything was safe. Duncan grumbled all the way home, but Skarloey paid no attention. Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Listen to me. There is nothing wrong with that tunnel. You stuck in it because you tried to do Rock N Roll. Tunnels are not dance floors and you are not a pop star.
  • George Carlin: Then Sir Topham Hatt gave his full attention to Duncan's funnel.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt then looks at Duncan's funnel)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If it happens again...
  • George Carlin: He ended ominously.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I should find ways to cut you down to size. In other words your career is um (clears throat) on the line. Need I say more?
  • George Carlin: Duncan thought Sir Topham Hatt had said quite enough and he remained completely silent and still for at least the whole evening.
