Transcript

  • (We see the Season 7 intro, and finally the start of Emily's New Coaches)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a splendid day on the Island of Sodor. Thomas was taking Annie and Clarabel back to the yards. A new engine had arrived and he wanted to say hello. The engine was beautiful with shiny paintwork and a gleaming brass dome.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, meet Emily.
  • Thomas: Hello, Emily.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, collect your coaches. You and your driver must learn the line.
  • Emily: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She answered. Thomas was impressed. Later, the only coaches Emily's driver could find were Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily's Driver: These aren't your sort of coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Emily's Driver: But I suppose they'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Annie and Clarabel felt insulted.
  • Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Clarabel whispered. Emily puffed carefully along the track.
  • Annie and Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do, how dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled the coaches. Thomas saw Emily coming down the line, pulling Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily called. But Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: Those are my coaches. Give them back!
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily didn't hear Thomas and she went on her way. Then, Edward passed and Percy. When Emily whistled hello, the engines didn't whistle back. Emily couldn't understand why they were so unfriendly. She was upset. Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to go to the docks to pick up new coaches.
  • Thomas: New coaches? But sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Really useful engines don't argue.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas didn't want new coaches, he wanted Annie and Clarabel back. When Oliver saw Emily return to the yards, he was surprised.
  • Oliver: Those are Thomas' coaches.
  • Emily: So that's why he looked cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Emily.
  • Emily: I'll go and apologize.
  • Thomas: Don't want new coaches, don't want new coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. Later, Emily was still looking for Thomas when a signalman flagged her down.
  • Signalman: Oliver hasn't cleared his signalbox.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Emily's driver.
  • Signalman: Please, go and see what's wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily could see that Oliver had broken down on the crossing. Then, Emily heard Thomas' whistle.
  • (Thomas' whistle tooting)
  • Emily: Oh dear!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas could see Oliver. He knew he could never stop in time.
  • Oliver: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily charged towards Oliver and with a huge effort, pushed him across the tracks, just in time.
  • Oliver: Thanks.
  • Emily: I did it.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Sir Topham Hatt praised Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, you were a very brave engine.
  • Oliver: The bravest.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Oliver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It gives me great pleasure to present you with two new coaches.
  • Emily: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Emily.
  • Emily: Thomas, I'm sorry I took Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I was so cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas.
  • Emily: Friends?
  • Thomas: Friends.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily loves her coaches and being part of Sir Topham Hatt's railway.

  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Following the commercial breaks, Something Fishy is the next to start)
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur loves working on the Island of Sodor. He is new to the railway and is learning his way around. One morning, he discovered the fishing village. The sun made the water sparkle and the seagulls cawed across the harbour. This was Arthur's favorite place. That evening Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's going to be a new line to the fishing village. I had to decide which engine shall run it.
  • Michael Brandon: He paused impressively. Thomas and Percy looked away. They had enough work to do. Arthur hoped he would be chosen.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you will work on the new line.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. But he really didn't like the smell of fish. Arthur was disappointment. Sir Topham Hatt sent him to haul coal to the steelworks. That evening, Thomas was at the washdown when Arthur puffed in.
  • Arthur: Do I smell a fishy engine?
  • Michael Brandon: He teased.
  • Thomas: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Smelly fish, smelly new line.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur wished he could go to the fishing village instead of the steelworks. He'd be much happier than Thomas. The next morning, Thomas was still grumpy. The fishermen had caught lots of fish.
  • Thomas: Hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm a busy engine.
  • Fisherman: And a fussy one too.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the fisherman.
  • Fisherman: Just enjoy the fresh salty smell of the fish.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Thomas steamed as fast as he could along the line. But there was trouble ahead. Some faulty points sent his freight cars one way and Thomas onto the old pier rail.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: The Troublesome Trucks were delighted.
  • Trucks: He's falling in the water! (laughing)
  • Michael Brandon: Luckily, Thomas wasn't hurt and the fish freight cars stayed on the tracks. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news he checked his time table.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Arthur is the newest engine. I'll send him right away.
  • Michael Brandon: It was a hot day. The ice that was keeping the fish cold started to melt.
  • Thomas: I hope someone comes quickly.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: That fish will spoil soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur was surprised to see Thomas in the tidal pool.
  • Arthur: Are you all right, Thomas?
  • Thomas: No. But i'll be much better when you take these fish away.
  • Driver: The breakdown van will be here soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Arthur's Driver. Arthur knew he had to hurry. He raced along the line to the docks and arrived there just in time. Later, Arthur went to see Thomas at the fitter's yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you for helping me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Arthur: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Arthur.
  • Arthur: I wish i had the fishing village line all the time.
  • Thomas: But please tell Sir Topham Hatt. Because i don't like fish.
  • Michael Brandon: That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to go to the fishing village while Thomas is being repaired.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Any Volunteers?
  • Arthur: Me!
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur blurted out.
  • Arthur: And please sir may i run on that line all the time? Thomas doesn't like fish but i do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then the line is yours.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Arthur was delighted. The next morning he puffed into the fishing village right on time. The smell of fish was everywhere. But he was sure he had the most beautiful line on the Island of Sodor.

  • (Whistle blowing)
  • (Once again, after the commercials, Thomas and The Avalanche is the last story to start)
  • Michael Brandon: It was Christmas time on the Island of Sodor and Sir Topham Hatt's engines were busy. The snow made their journeys difficult. They had to work hard to deliver passengers and goods to their destinations of time. This made the engines feel very reliable. Elizabeth pulled into the fitters yard with Thomas' snowplough.
  • Thomas: I don't need that silly old thing.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Elizabeth: Stuff and nonsense.
  • Michael Brandon: Steamed Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: You can't be a reliable engine if you can't get through the snow.
  • Michael Brandon: That made Thomas cross.
  • Thomas: You know i'm reliable. I just don't like my snowplough. Elizabeth is rude.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas chuffed.
  • Thomas: And this snowplough makes my buffers ache.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Thomas saw Sir Topham Hatt talking to Elizabeth.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The Sodor Cake Factory is snowed in. Their Christmas cakes must get to the docks before the ship sails for the mainland.
  • Thomas: Let me do the job.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need you on your line, Thomas. Besides, Elizabeth knows those roads well. She's very reliable.
  • Thomas: I'm reliable too.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Elizabeth: Apparently not reliable enough.
  • Michael Brandon: Elizabeth chuffed. Now Thomas was crosser still. The snow was heavy, but Thomas arrived at every station right on time. Elizabeth was struggling to stay on the road. Her wheels did not like the slippery ice at all. When Thomas arrived at the docks to pick up Terence, he was surprised that Elizabeth had not returned.
  • Dock Manager: The ship will miss the tide.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the dock manager.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And the children won't have their Christmas cakes. Thomas, go and look for Elizabeth at once.
  • Thomas: Yes sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Answered Thomas.
  • Thomas: Perhaps Elizabeth isn't so reliable after all.
  • Michael Brandon: He whispered. At the cake factory, Elizabeth was piled high with crates of Christmas cakes.
  • Elizabeth: Sir Topham Hatt's counting on me. I mustn't be late.
  • Michael Brandon: She chuffed onto the icy road. Suddenly, she was on a steep hill. Her drive applied the brakes. Elizabeth slid out of control into a deep snowdrift. Poor Elizabeth. Thomas and Terence puffed through the swirling snow. They couldn't see Elizabeth anywhere. Soon, they spotted her driver. He was standing by the level crossing.
  • Elizabeth's Driver: Elizabeth is stuck under the snow.
  • Michael Brandon: Her driver explained.
  • Elizabeth's Driver: I need help to dig her out.
  • Michael Brandon: Terence rescued her in no time.
  • Thomas: We will have to hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: It wasn't you fault, Elizabeth, it's the slippery roads.
  • Michael Brandon: Elizabeth felt much better. Thomas chuffed and puffed as fast as he could. They reached the docks just in time. Sir Topham Hatt was delighted to see the bakery crates and that Elizabeth was safe and well.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll get you unloaded immediately.
  • Thomas: Now the children will have their Christmas cakes.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Elizabeth: Oh, thank you, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Elizabeth.
  • Elizabeth: You and i are both reliable.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas agreed.
  • (Down By The Docks is the last song to happen)
  • Children: (singing) Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Salty! Chief Diesel at the docks, He's the tough guy. He's the one who sorts the trucks. He's the one to see, in emergencies... He's the one to see. Tirelessly working, never complaining, Part of the dockside team... Cranky! Looking down on everyone, Always working. Lifting cargo by the ton. And he's up so high, he can reach the sky... Part of the dockside team. Whatever the weather, you'll see him out there, Part of the dockside team... Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Sailors! Who have crossed the seven seas, Sailing homeward. Bringing all and sundry. And the trade winds blow their ships back home... Safely to the shore. We are the workers, stoking the boilers Of Sodor's industry... Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Down by the dockside, down by the dockside Down by the dockside, is where we want to be.
