Narrator: "One day, Spike was at the junction, when Big Macintosh shuffled in with some changelings."

Spike: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Remarked Spike."

Spike: "What a funny smell.

Can you smell a smell?"

Apple Bloom: "I can't smell a smell."

Narrator: "Said Apple Bloom."

Spike: "A funny, musty sort of smell."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Big Macintosh: "No one noticed it till' you did."

Narrator: "Grunted Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "It must be yours."

Narrator: "Not long ago, he had fallen in a dirty ditch. Spike enjoyed teasing him about it."

Spike: "Apple Bloom, Sweetie Belle, do you know what I think it is? It's ditch water."

Narrator: "Before Big Mac could answer, Spike puffed away.

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle could hardly believe their ears."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "He's dreadfully rude, I feel quite ashamed. I feel quite ashamed, he's dreadfully rude."

Narrator: "And to Spike, they said,"

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "You mustn't be rude, you make us ashamed."

Narrator: "But Spike didn't care a bit."

Spike: "That was funny. That was funny."

Narrator: "He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself.

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were deeply shocked. They had great respect for Big Macintosh the Horse.

Spike left the fillies at the station, and went off to a mine for some changelings.

Long ago, miners digging for lead had made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up changelings, but not the weight of animals. A large notice warns them not to enter the area.

Danger! Animals must not pass this board."

Spike: "Silly old board."

Narrator: "Thought Spike.

He had often tried to pass it, but had never succeeded, but this morning, he made a plan.

The fireman went to through the switch."

Spike: "Now for my plan."

Narrator: "Thought Spike.

Bumping the changelings fiercely, he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding."

Spike's Driver: "Come back!"

Narrator: "Yelled his driver."

Spike: "Fire and smoke!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "I'm sunk!"

Narrator: "And he was."

Spike: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "He said."

Spike: "I am a silly dragon."

Hoity Toity: "And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Spike: "Please get me out, I won't do it again!"

Hoity Toity: "I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with a crane. The ground's not firm enough.

Hmmm. Let me see. I wonder if Big Mac could pull you out."

Spike: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Spike, but he didn't want to meet Big Mac just yet."

Big Macintosh: "Down a mine, is he? Ha, ha, ha!"

Narrator: "Laughed Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "What a joke!

All right, Little Spike, we'll have you out in a couple of puffs!"

Narrator: "Strong cables were fastened between the two animals."

Hoity Toity: "Are you ready?


Narrator: "It was a lot harder than they all thought, but at last, Spike was free.

Spike: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Big Macintosh: "That's alright, Spike. You made me laugh."

Narrator: "Replied Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "I'm in disgrace."

Spike: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Big Macintosh: "Why so you are, Spike. Shall we form an alliance? You help me, and I'll help you."

Spike: "Right you are!"

Narrator: "Agreed Spike."

Big Macintosh: "Good, that's settled."

Narrator: "Rumbled Big Mac.

And hoof to hoof, the allies puffed home."
