Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Shining Time Station theme song)
  • Man: Reach for the steam, reach for the whistle, going the railing road. Reach for the words, reach for the story, follow the rainbow sun. To a Shining Time Station, where dreams can come true, waiting there for you.
  • (We then find the crew working hard)
  • Felix: (hums to Take Me Out To The Ball Game)
  • Tooty: Hey, Mr. Perez. What's up?
  • Felix: Ah, my precious Tooty. It's been a long time.
  • Stacy: We're about to begin our annual sports celebration.
  • Harry: It's a good thing we're set.
  • Billy: Dan's been doing good time ever since.
  • Felix: Exactly, my good amigos. Have you ever heard about getting much hope.
  • Tooty: Well, I...
  • Schemer: Of course it is, Felix. Me and my nephew, Schemee, want to be in sports, too.
  • Schemee: And we'll go head to head against Tooty and his big brother Fox.
  • Tooty: You mean the two of us?
  • Fox: That's correct. We'll get much hope.
  • (Just then, Midge and Ginny arrive)
  • Midge: When does the sports competition begin?
  • Ginny: We want to remember the games.
  • Stacy: It will start in about a few minutes.
  • Harry: But don't worry, we'll be the judges.
  • Billy: As we promise.
  • (The Conductors appear)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Of course you will.
  • Tooty: Hi, Mr. Conductors 1 and 2.
  • Fox: Thank goodness sports competitions are a luck of an Irish.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Indeed. Everyone has to rely on their sport duties.
  • Midge: If it wasn't for Becky and Kara, I'd say it was them being yelled at by Mr. King.
  • Ginny: And Gordon?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: No, Ginny, but he had an accident while pulling a slow goods. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 2 blows his whistle and Gordon Takes A Tumble starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sir Topham Hatt's engines are proud of how useful they are. It makes them feel important. But none of them feels more important than Gordon.
  • Gordon: Watch out!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gordon wheeshed.
  • Gordon: You'll get my paint all sooty.
  • Salty: Pulling freight cars is a sooty job.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Teased Salty.
  • Salty: But then you wouldn't know.
  • Gordon: Of course not.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gordon huffed importantly.
  • Gordon: Express engines don't pull freight cars it wouldn't be dignified.
  • Percy: Dingyfried?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Puzzled Percy.
  • Percy: What's that?
  • Gordon: Dignified.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gordon corrected.
  • Gordon: It means...
  • Salty: It means if someone's too big for his buffers.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Teased Salty.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Puffed Gordon and he puffed away. That evening, fog covered the Island of Sodor. Everything slowed down and soon the docks were packed with waiting freight cars. This caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds. He was in a great hurry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Henry, Thomas and Percy.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the docks inmediately.
  • Henry, Thomas and Percy: Yes sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: They whistled. Then Sir Topham Hatt turned to the big blue engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You too, Gordon.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to take the freight cars where they won't be in a way.
  • Gordon: Freight cars!?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Huffed Gordon. He could not believe what he had heard. Gordon wasn't happy to be pulling freight cars. He waited impatiently while they were shunted into place.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, hurry up.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Chuffed Gordon crossly.
  • Thomas: Why the rush, Gordon?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: If i must pull freight cars then i'll show Salty how an express engine pulls freight cars.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gordon huffed.
  • Salty: Careful, captain.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Salty tooted.
  • Salty: You don't wanna get too big for your buffers.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: But Gordon ignored Salty. The next morning, Gordon raced along with his heavy load.
  • Gordon: Now this is how you pull freight cars.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He puffed. The signalman had accidentally left the points switched to the branch line. Gordon rattled through the junction.
  • Gordon: That's strange, i'm on the branch line.
  • Signalman: Oh no!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: The signalman cried.
  • Signalman: Express trains aren't supposed to go that way.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: But it was too late. Gordon had already raced into the distance. The old branch line was weak and rusty. There were signs warning all the trains to go slow. But Gordon ignored the sign.
  • Gordon: I'm an express engine i don't go slow.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said and he went even faster. The branch line couldn't take his weight and the rails buckled.
  • Gordon: Oh help!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gordon cried as he slid off the tracks and into a field.
  • (Gordon runs over a pile of hay, towards some tires making him lose his tender and into a barn)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: No one was hurt, but poor Gordon felt very undignified.
  • Gordon: What will Sir Topham Hatt say.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He groaned. He found out soon enough.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Gordon.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You wanted to show Salty a thing or two and you certainly done that. You showed him how silly it is to ignore go slow signs.
  • Gordon: Sorry, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Gordon and he let out a sad weesh of steam. Gordon was soon repaired and back at the docks for work. He was very unhappy with himself.
  • Thomas: Everyone makes mistakes.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Even you.
  • James: Salty's sorry he teased you.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Huffed James.
  • Gordon: And i'm sorry i'm too big for my buffers.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Chuffed Gordon. And all the engines gave a jolly toot even Gordon.
  • (Gordon Takes A Tumble ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: So remember, engines never come off the rails.
  • Tooty: Oh, that's true.
  • Fox: You'd be leaving, right?
  • The Conductors: Yep.
  • (The Conductors disappear)
  • Tooty: Am I ready for sports?
  • Fox: Yes indeed.
  • Stacy: Oh, how wonderful!
  • Harry: That's totally nice.
  • Billy: I just can't wait.
  • Schemer: (as he and Schemee go to the arcade) Let's practice for the sports too.
  • Schemee: When we put our nickels to the jukebox.
  • (Schemee inserts a nickel in the jukebox)
  • (Inside, Tito and the band are doing exercises)
  • Tito: Flex it up, guys.
  • Didi: Right you are.

  • Didi: Hit it.
  • Tito: A one, a two, a one, two, three, four!
  • (Tito sings Exercise Is Good For You)
  • Tito: Put your arms up. (Put your arms up.) Put your arms down. (Put your arms down.) Put your arms up and down and up and down and shake 'em all around. Put your leg up. (Put your leg up.)

  • (Exercise Is Good For You ends)

  • Tooty: All done.
  • Fox: Now, all we have to do is to compete with Schemer and Schemee.
  • (Mel and Malinda arrive at that moment)
  • Mel: Hey, Tooty.
  • Malinda: It's been a long time.
  • Tooty: What do you want?
  • Fox: We've just finished sports practice.

  • Malinda: Well, we should watch for now.
  • Tooty: Thank you girls.
  • Fox: So what's next?
  • (The Conductors reappear)

  • Fox: And they played baseball a while ago.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Well, in the Anything Tunnel, all the engines will never give up. Come on.

  • (Never Never Never Give Up ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: So remember, you must never give up on sports just like the engines do.
  • Tooty: That's good.
  • Fox: Well, the Sports competition is almost starting.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: You can rely on us.
  • Mel: It's a good thing we're in.
  • Malinda: Do you remember Duncan?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Of course, Malinda. He came into a mishap at the Incline. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 2 blows his whistle and Dunkin' Duncan starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey chugged cheerfully through the Sodor countryside. The engines were going to help Duncan with an important job at the incline railway. The engines enjoyed working at the incline railway. They like the way the loaded slate cars rolled down the incline pulling the empty slate cars up. But they are always careful. Duncan doesn't like working at the incline railway. He is always impatient to get back at the junction. This makes him careless and gets him in a lot of trouble. Rusty hoped Duncan would stay out of trouble today, but he was already in too much of a hurry.
  • Duncan: I'm a plain speaking engine.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Gruffed Duncan.
  • Duncan: So collect your slate cars and be quick about it.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: And off he steamed.
  • Rheneas: Bossy boots.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Skarloey: Pushy puffer.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Huffed Skarloey. They didn't like Duncan telling them what to do.
  • Rusty: He just wants to get back to the bustle of the junction.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Rusty said. Duncan wanted everyone to work faster.
  • Duncan: You're supposed to be helping me.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He grumbled.
  • Duncan: But you're as slow as snails.
  • Rusty: We're proper engines.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Rusty huffed crossly.
  • Rusty: We followed the rules.
  • Rheneas: We can't send up more than four slate cars at a time.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Duncan: Then work faster.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Duncan impatiently. Later that day, Duncan was working at the incline.
  • Duncan: I'll show you how fast a really useful engine can work.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Duncan called as he hastily biffed one slate car into another and then another. Soon, Duncan had his four slate cars.
  • Duncan: Nothing to it!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He boasted to Rusty.
  • Rusty: Those slate cars will pay you back.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Warned Rusty.
  • Rusty: Slate cars don't like to be biffed.
  • Duncan: I can handle slate cars.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He cried. The three little engines could see Duncan was not going to listen. They carefully chuffed away from the incline with their slate cars full of slate. Duncan was so impatient he became even more careless.
  • Duncan: I'll show that smelly diesel and those lazy steamers.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said to his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: Careful.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Cautioned his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: You're asking for trouble.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: And he got it. Duncan didn't notice his chain was tangled in the coupling of the slate car in front of him. Suddenly, he was being pulled up the track by the empty slate cars.
  • Duncan: Bouncing bogies!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He cried.
  • Duncan: It's got me!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Duncan's driver jumped clear. Rusty returned to see Duncan being pulled up the incline.
  • Rusty: I tried to warn him.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty's Driver: He never listens.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: The little diesel's driver said. The chain pulling Duncan's slate cars couldn't hold the weight. It suddenly snapped. Duncan plummeted down the incline.
  • Duncan: Help!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He yelled.
  • (Splash!)
  • Duncan: Glub, glub, glub.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said.
  • Duncan: Bluggle my bloiler.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Duncan felt foolish and very wet. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived, he spoke severly to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have not been a responsible engine.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your impatience has caused confusion and delay and you owe these engines in apology.
  • Duncan: Sorry.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Duncan said to Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Once you have been repaired.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will work at the incline until you learned to be patient and careful.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Duncan.
  • (Dunkin' Duncan ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Just like I said before, Duncan had to be very patient and very careful.
  • Tooty: I guess that's true.
  • Fox: You'd be leaving, right?
  • The Conductors: Yep.
  • (As the Conductors disappear, J.B. King arrives)
  • J.B. King: I declare that the ping pong competition will now begin!
  • Tooty: Yes!
  • Fox: Finally!
  • Schemer: We're going to compete together!
  • Schemee: All right!
  • (Soon, Tooty, Fox, Schemer and Schemee are competing in Ping Pong)
  • Stacy: I'm glad that getting much hope is a much better idea.
  • Harry: Yes indeed.
  • Billy: Just imagine how we become the judges.
  • Mel: Ping Pong is the best sport ever.
  • Malinda: Exactly.
  • (They both shake hands as we end this episode)
  • (We then see the outro with the train from the same opening)
  • (While the end credits roll, the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo theme song plays)
  • Chorus: There a mystery in town! So call the coolest pup around! Thats Scooby a pup named Scooby-Doo!  Scooby-do-be-do! Scooby-Doo!
