  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the Island of Sodor. Thomas the Tank Engine's blue paint sparkled in a sunshine as he puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: You look splendid.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only proper color for an engine.
  • Toby: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Percy.
  • Thomas: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Blue is the only color for a really useful engine. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Percy said no more. He just grinned at Toby. Later, Thomas was resting when Percy arrived. A large hopper was loading his freight cars full of coal. Thomas was still being cheeky.
  • Thomas: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Thomas: Watch out with those silly cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the cars.
  • Thomas: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Thomas.
  • Thomas: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Thomas: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Percy was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Thomas' smart blue paint was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Percy: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Percy: You don't look really useful now, Thomas. You look really disgraceful.
  • Thomas: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Thomas.
  • Thomas: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Thomas that he wasn't it time for his next train. Toby had to take Annie and Clarabel.
  • Annie: Poor Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Annie to Clarabel. They were most upset. Thomas was grumpy in the shed that night. Toby thought it made a great joke, but Percy was cross with Thomas for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Percy: Fancy a really useful blue engine like Thomas becoming a disgrace to Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Thomas was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Percy bring his cars from the junction. The cars were heavy and Percy was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Percy found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Percy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: Help!
  • (Percy falls into the deep coal)
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Percy was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Thomas to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Thomas: Now Percy has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two engines made up their quarrel.
  • Percy: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: You do know that, don't you?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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 nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Passengers and Polish)
  • George Carlin: Nancy is the conductor's daughter. One day she was working with Skarloey with some polish and a rag. Skarloey was snoozing happily but Nancy wanted to talk.
  • Nancy: Wake up, lazybones. Your brass is filthy. Aren't you ashamed?
  • Skarloey: No.
  • George Carlin: Yawned Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: You're just an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: And Skarloey closed his eyes. He was thinking about his friend Rheneas, and all the good times they had shared before Rheneas was away to be mended. Nancy interrupted again.
  • Nancy: Don't you wanna look nice when Rheneas comes home?
  • George Carlin: Skarloey wasn't sleepy anymore?
  • Skarloey: What? When?
  • Nancy: Soon, daddy told me. I'm going now.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Skarloey: Nancy, stop. Do I really look nice? Please, polish me again.
  • Nancy: Now who's an old fusspot?
  • George Carlin: Laughed Nancy and set to work once time. Duncan was jealous.
  • Duncan: Aren't you gonna polish me too?
  • Nancy: Sorry, not today. I'm going now. I'm helping the Refreshment Lady this afternoon. We must get the ice cream ready for the passengers. Never mind, Duncan.
  • George Carlin: But Duncan did mind.
  • Duncan: It isn't fair!
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duncan: Peter Sam gets a special funnel, Sir Handel gets special wheels, passengers get ice cream, but I'm not even polished.
  • George Carlin: Of course this wasn't true, but Duncan enjoyed complaining. He became sulkier still. That afternoon, there was bad news above the line.
  • Driver: One of Skarloey's coaches has come off the rails.
  • George Carlin: Called Duncan's driver.
  • Driver: We'll have to take workmen here right away.
  • Duncan: All this extra work!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Duncan.
  • Duncan: It wear's an engine out!
  • Driver: Rubbish! Come on!
  • George Carlin: The derailed coach was in a middle of Skarloey's train, so he had gone out top the top station with his front coaches. Duncan shunted the work's trains to the sidings and left the workmen sorted out the mess. Then he brought the passengers and rear coaches home. He sulked all the way.
  • Duncan: I get no rest, I get no rest.
  • George Carlin: He muttered. Duncan had made a journey very difficult. He was short of steam so his driver waited a while and hope of raising more. But Duncan wouldn't try.
  • Driver: We'll keep our passengers waiting.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Duncan was cross.
  • Duncan: You always think about the passengers and never about me!
  • George Carlin: It wasn't long before Duncan built up enough steam and set off again. But he was still very grumpy and cross.
  • Duncan: I'm overworked, and I won't stand it!
  • George Carlin: At last they reached the viaduct near the station.
  • Driver: Come on, Duncan!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver.
  • Driver: One more effort, and you'll have a rest and drink in the station.
  • George Carlin: Then Duncan was very rude.
  • Duncan: Keep your old station. I'm staying here.
  • George Carlin: And he did too. Skarloey had to haul Duncan and his train all the way to the platform. The passengers were furious. They told everyone what a bad railway it was.
  • (Passengers arguing)
  • Man: We're losing money!
  • George Carlin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No passengers means no polish.
  • Duncan: And no polish means no passengers.
  • George Carlin: Duncan muttered to himself. He still has a lot to learn, doesn't he?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Gallant Old Engine)
  • George Carlin: Duncan would not stop grumbling. He grumbled that he wasn't polished enough. He grumbled that he was overworked. Most of all, he grumbled about the passengers.
  • Skarloey: I'm ashamed of you, Duncan.
  • George Carlin: Said Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Thank goodness Rheneas was coming home soon. Perhaps he'll teach you some sense before it's too late.
  • Duncan: What is with Rheneas to do with me?
  • Skarloey: Rheneas saved our railway.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Peter Sam: Please tell us about it.
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: Well.
  • George Carlin: Began Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: It was before you came here. Things were bad. Rheneas and I will have to keep the trains running or I'll railway will have to close.
  • Peter Sam: How awful.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Peter Sam.
  • Skarloey: I've tried hard.
  • George Carlin: Continued Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: But my old wheels ached. Rheneas understood. It's my turn now.
  • George Carlin: He telled me.
  • Skarloey: He was often short of steam but he always struggled to the station and then rested there.
  • Rheneas: I mustn't stop between stations.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Rheneas: The passengers wouldn't like it.
  • Duncan: Hmmph!
  • George Carlin: Huffed Duncan. He had stopped on the viaduct and hadn't cared at all.
  • Skarloey: Passengers.
  • George Carlin: Continued Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Get cross if you stopped on the wrong places. Rheneas stopped on the wrong place once and this is what happened.
  • George Carlin: One wet and windy afternoon and the rails were dammed, Rheneas was traveling home with a full train. They were even passengers and the caboose. It wasn't a comfortable ride at all. Rheneas' wheels kept slipping and it was a steep climb. At last, his wheels gripped the rails again.
  • Rheneas: The worse was over.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Rheneas: Now we're away.
  • George Carlin: But they weren't.
  • Rheneas: Aah, I've got a cramp!
  • George Carlin: He groaned. And Rheneas stopped on the lonliness part of the line. His driver examing him carefully.
  • Driver: Your valve gear has jammed. We need to reach the next station. Do you think you still get us here?
  • Rheneas: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rheneas. Rheneas did his best.
  • Rheneas: If I fail.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Rheneas: The passengers will be cross and the railway will close.
  • George Carlin: Everything blurred. He was really too tired to make the turn of his wheels, but he did, and another, and another, and another. Finally, tired but triumph, Rheneas reached the station.
  • Rheneas: I'm here at last!
  • George Carlin: He wheezed.
  • Passengers: Thank you for giving us home.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: We'll tell all our friends what a fine railway this is.
  • George Carlin: His driver was delighted.
  • Driver: You're a gallant little engine.
  • George Carlin: He said to Rheneas.
  • Driver: When you're rested we'll mend you, so you'll be ready for tomorrow.
  • Skarloey: And...
  • George Carlin: Smiled Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Rheneas always was ready for tomorrow.
  • Duncan: Thanks for telling us about him.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duncan.
  • Duncan: I was wrong. Passengers are important after all.
  • George Carlin: The next day Rheneas came home. All the engines were there to greet him. Edward push his truck to the siding where he was lifted on to his rails. This was the signal for a chorus of whistles from engines large and small. Everyone was happy and Rheneas was the happiest of all.
  • Rheneas: You know.
  • George Carlin: He whispered to Skarloey.
  • Rheneas: This helps an engine feel that at last he has really come home.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bertie's Chase)
  • George Carlin: One morning, Edward was waiting to pick some passengers from Thomas' train.
  • Edward: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Thomas? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • George Carlin: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Thomas. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Bertie Bus in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • George Carlin: He clambered down.
  • Bertie: Stop, stop! I've got Thomas' passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Bertie, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Edward was gone.
  • Bertie: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Bother Thomas' fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Bertie: I'll catch Edward or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Bertie: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Bertie as he reached the top.
  • Bertie: Oh no! Edward's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Bertie toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Bertie skitted into the yard.
  • Bertie: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Bertie. He was just in time to see Edward puffed away.
  • Bertie: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Bertie.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Edward. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Bertie and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Bertie chased after Edward once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the coaches as Edward snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Edward: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Edward: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Edward's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Bertie. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Edward: I'm sorry about the chase, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Bertie: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Bertie.
  • Bertie: Late at junction. You didn't know about Thomas' passengers.
  • Edward: Peep peep! Goodbye, Bertie! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Edward.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Bertie!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Bertie raced back to tell Thomas that all was well.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Bertie, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a very good friend indeed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Peter Sam and The Refreshment Lady)
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel had been naughty, so Sir Topham Hatt made him stay in the shed for a while. Peter Sam was now busier than ever. He had to do Sir Handel's work as well as his own. He was very excited, and the fireman found him hard to handle.
  • Sir Handel: (grunts) Anyone would think that he wanted to work.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel who was lonely and bored.
  • Skarloey: All respectable engines do.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Keep calm, Peter Sam, and you do well.
  • George Carlin: But Peter Sam was in such of state that he couldn't listen. He collected some coaches and went on his way. But somehow the faster that he wanted to go, the slower the journey became. When Peter Sam finally fussed through the station, Henry was already there.
  • Henry: This won't do, youngster.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: I can't be kept waiting. If you are late tonight, I'll go off and leave your passengers behind.
  • Peter Sam: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. Secretly, he was a little worried. But not for long. The conductor blew his whistle, and waved his green flag. Peter Sam puffed happily away, singing a little song.
  • Peter Sam: (singing) I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. What fun it all is.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he journeyed along the line. The coaches enjoyed themselves too. They were growing fun of Peter Sam. Every afternoon, they had to wait an hour at the station by the lake. The stations has a little shops of the refreshments. The conductor, fireman and the guard buy tea and cakes for the refreshment lady. At last, the waiting was over. But Peter Sam was sizzling with impatients.
  • Peter Sam: Peep peep! Hurry up, please!
  • George Carlin: He whistled to the passengers.
  • Peter Sam: How awful.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Peter Sam: If we missed Henry's train.
  • George Carlin: The conductor was ready with his flag and whistle. The refreshment lady was making a way to the train. Then it happened. The conductor says that Peter Sam was too impatient. Peter Sam says he was sure he heard a whistle, anyway he started.
  • Coaches: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Wailed the coaches.
  • Coaches: You left the refreshment lady behind!
  • Peter Sam: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Groaned Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: We're sure to miss Henry now.
  • George Carlin: The refreshment lady climbed aboard and they started again. Peter Sam didn't sing anymore. Instead he hurried along the line as fast as he wheels and his driver would let him. They arrived at the station just in time.
  • Peter Sam: Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. He felt very relief.
  • Henry: Not bad, youngster.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry loftly. But the refreshment lady was still cross.
  • Refreshment Lady: What do you mean by leaving me behind?
  • Peter Sam: I'm sorry, refreshment lady.
  • George Carlin: Replied Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: But Henry says he might leave without us.
  • George Carlin: Then the refreshment lady laughed.
  • Refreshment Lady: You silly engine! Henry was teasing you. He wouldn't ever go without his passengers. He's a guaranteed connection.
  • (Conductor's whistle blows)
  • Peter Sam: Well!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: Where's that Henry?
  • George Carlin: But Henry had chortled away.
  • (Henry's whistle toots)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover)
  • Children: (singing) Thomas first saw Terence the Tractor plowing in a field one day and he said, "My oh my, you do look funny. Where are your wheels, are your wheels, are your wheels? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Terence the Tractor "I don't have wheels like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Thomas got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Terence the Tractor Now Thomas understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover.
