Transcript

  • (We open this CD with the Thomas Season 1-7 theme and the start of Duck Takes Charge)
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy.
  • Gordon: What?
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Gordon.
  • Percy: Do you know what?
  • Gordon: Silly!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Percy: Sir Topham Hatt says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger engine to help me.
  • James: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said James.
  • James: Any engine could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy went off to get some coaches.
  • Percy: That stupid old signal.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Percy: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little engine and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look tired.
  • Percy: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my dome or on my wheels.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look the right way up to me.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Cheer up. The new engine is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Thomas and Toby will help too.
  • Percy: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: The new engine arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Duck: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Duck. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Duck better than Montague.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Duck it shall be. Here, Percy, show Duck around.
  • Ringo Starr: The two engines went off together. Soon they were very busy. James, Gordon and Henry watched Duck quietly doing his work.
  • Henry: He seems a simple sort of engine.
  • James: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Henry, Gordon, James: (quacking) Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Smoke billowed everywhere. Percy was cross, but Duck took no notice.
  • Duck: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes they do.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Percy.
  • Duck: Right.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Duck.
  • Duck: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispered something.
  • Duck: We'll do it later.
  • Ringo Starr: Sir Topham Hatt was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Henry, Gordon and James: Wheesh! (snorting)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: He said and hurried to the yard. Duck and Percy calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the engines in. Gordon, James and Henry were furious.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Bellowed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Gordon: They won't let us in!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck, explain this behavior.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western engine. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Percy and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, engines that we only take orders from you.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quiet!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy and Duck, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • Ringo Starr: Gordon, Henry and James sniggered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Thundered Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Duck is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • Ringo Starr: After Percy went away, Duck was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Comes To Breakfast)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas the Tank Engine has worked his Branch Line for many years, and knows it very well.
  • (Thomas arrives at the station)
  • Thomas' Driver: You know just where to stop, Thomas.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: You could almost manage it without you.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas had become concided. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Thomas: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Ringo Starr: He told the others.
  • Percy: Don't be so daft.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Percy.
  • Toby: I never go without my driver.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Toby earnestly.
  • Toby: I'd be frightened.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Boasted Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm not scared.
  • Toby: You never dare.
  • Thomas: I would then. You'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: The next day the firelighter came. Thomas drowzed comfortably as the warmth spread into his boiler. Percy and Toby were still asleep. Thomas suddenly remembered.
  • Thomas: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled.
  • Thomas: I'll show them! Driver says I can manage without him. I'll just go out and then I'll stop and "wheesh!" That'll make them jump.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas thought he was being clever and really he was only moving because a careless cleaner had medal with his controls. He soon found his mistake. He tried to "wheesh!", but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare what it look what's coming next. There was the stationmaster's house! The stationmaster was about to have breakfast.
  • Thomas: Horrors!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Thomas, and shut his eyes. The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Thomas had collected the bush on his travels. He peered into his room through his leaves. He couldn't speak. The stationmaster was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: You miserable engine!
  • Ringo Starr: She scolded.
  • Stationmaster's Wife: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I'll shall have to cook some more!
  • Ringo Starr: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time it fell on Thomas. Thomas felt depressed. Workmen propped out the house with strong poles and layed rails through the garden. Then, the scottish twin engines Donald and Douglas arrived.
  • (Donald and Douglas' whistles toot)
  • Donald and Douglas: Dinna fash yourself, Thomas. We'll soon have you back on the rails.
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed. (Donald and Douglas rescuing Thomas) Donald and Douglas puffing hard manage to haul Thomas back to safety. Bits of fencing, the bush, and a broken window frame festooned was front, which was badly twisted. The twins laughed and left him. (Donald and Douglas' whistles toot) Thomas was indisgraced. There was worst to come.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're in a lot of trouble, Thomas.
  • Thomas: I know, Sir. I'm sorry, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas' voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the works and have your worn parts mended. It will be a long job.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, a Diesel Rail-car will do your work.
  • Thomas: A d-d-d-diesel, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Thomas spluttered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, Thomas. Diesels always stay in their sheds till they are wanted. Diesels never gallanting off to breakfast in Stationmasters' houses.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Daisy)
  • Ringo Starr: 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...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...is Daisy the Diesel Rail-car, who has come to help while Thomas is...indisposed.
  • Percy: Please, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Percy.
  • Percy: Will she go, sir, when Thomas comes back, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That depends.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Percy and Toby: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • (Percy's whistle toots, Daisy's horn blows and Toby's bell rang)
  • Ringo Starr: Daisy was hard 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • (Percy's whistle toots, Toby's bell rang and Daisy's horn blows)
  • Daisy: This is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • Ringo Starr: The rubbish turned out to be Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta who were most offended.
  • Annie: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • Ringo Starr: They fumed. Percy and Toby had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.
  • (Toby's bell rang)
  • Ringo Starr: The engines woke next morning feeling exhausted. Daisy, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Daisy: Oooh! Oooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Daisy: Look at me.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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 indigment.
  • Daisy: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Daisy's Driver: Surley.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Daisy: I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: Percy can do it. He loves messing about with freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: She began to shudder violently.
  • Daisy's Driver: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • Ringo Starr: Daisy lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Daisy: Told you.
  • Ringo Starr: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Daisy: It's fitter's orders.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Daisy: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exames 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Daisy.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Sir Topham Hatt send us such a feeble...
  • Daisy: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Daisy.
  • Daisy: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: She chuckled.
  • Daisy: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • Ringo Starr: But she said it to herself.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Predicament)
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Percy.
  • Toby: Tell you what?
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Toby.
  • Toby: I'll take the milk, you fetch my freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Percy had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the freight cars about.
  • Percy: Hurry along.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. The freight cars grumbled to each other.
  • Freight Cars: This is Toby's place! Percy's got no right to poke his funnel in here and push us around.
  • Ringo Starr: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Freight Cars: Pay Percy out! Pay Percy out!
  • Percy: Come along.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Percy.
  • Percy: No nonsense.
  • Freight Cars: We'll give him nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: But before he could check them the freight cars surged ahead.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • Ringo Starr: They cried.
  • Percy: Help! Help!
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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: I am sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must stay here till we are ready. And you really must be more careful with freight cars.
  • Ringo Starr: Percy sighed. The freight cars groaned beneath his wheels. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Daisy too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My engines work hard. I send lazy engines away.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: I will work hard, sir. 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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 all by herself the other day. That show's you, doesn't it?
