Narrator: "Spike the Dragon puffed happily along his line with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle.
Hoity Toity was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch."
Hoity Toity: "Well done, Spike! You are right on time and really reliable."
Spike: "Thank you, sir."
Narrator: "Whistled Spike."
Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Oh, right on time and really reliable."
Narrator: "Hummed the fillies.
But the big animals were not feeling cheerful at all."
Filthy Rich: "Where's Pipsqueak?"
Narrator: "Mumbled Filthy Rich."
Filthy Rich: "He's suppose to fetch our buffaloes."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We get no rest."
Narrator: "Complained Cranky.
He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Filthy Rich."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What's the matter, Filthy Rich? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead."
Filthy Rich: "I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore."
Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich."
Filthy Rich: "Anyway, you look silly enough to be a clown. You should join the circus."
Narrator: "Whistled Pipsqueak."
Pipsqueak: "So you've heard the news."
Big Macintosh: "What news?"
Pipsqueak: "About the circus."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak, what are you talking about?"
Pipsqueak: "The circus has arrived."
Narrator: "Explained Pipsqueak."
Pipsqueak: "I've been arranging special carts. Hoity Toity needs your help too."
Narrator: "The animals soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Big Mac and Filthy Rich were cross all over again when Cranky got to pull the carts away.
A little later, Hoity Toity returned."
Hoity Toity: "Come along, Filthy Rich. A tunnel is blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate."
Filthy Rich: "Pushing changelings, pushing changelings."
Narrator: "Grumbled Filthy Rich.
They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside.
It was very dark and quiet. But not for long."
Narrator: "Shouted the workmen. And they ran out."
Workmen: "We started to dig at the block, but it grunted and moved."
Narrator: "One said."
Narrator: "Said the foreman."
Workmen: "It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again."
Narrator: "Said the foreman."
Foreman: "I'll go with the changelings and Filthy Rich shall push it out."
Filthy Rich: "Weesh!"
Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain. But this was worse. Something big and alive was inside."
Filthy Rich: "Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "Neither do I."
Narrator: "Said his driver."
Filthy Rich's Driver: "But we must clear the path."
Filthy Rich: "Oh dear, oh dear."
Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich.
Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong. It began to push them backwards. Out of the tunnel came Filthy Rich, then the changelings and last of all a large, cross elephant."
Foreman: "Well I never."
Narrator: "Cried the foreman."
The workmen gave him some cake. He drank three buckets of water. And was just about to drink another, when Filthy Rich kicked dirt."
The Elephant: (Trumpeting)
Narrator: "Cried the elephant. Water went all over Filthy Rich. Poor Filthy Rich.
The elephant and his keeper were soon reunited, but Filthy Rich was most upset."
Filthy Rich: "An elephant pushed me! An elephant hooshed me!"
Narrator: "That night, he told the other animals all about it. Big Mac and Cranky felt sorry for Filthy Rich, but still teased him."
Big Macintosh: "First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?"
Spike: "Never mind, Filthy Rich."
Narrator: "Murmured Spike."
Spike: "I think you are brave today, and really reliable too."
