Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin Gordon Takes A Dip)
  • George Carlin: Gordon was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Gordon: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid engine, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Henry.
  • Gordon: What cheek!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Henry is too big for his wheels. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Percy: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy innocently.
  • Gordon: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any engine. But to come off the rails like Henry did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • George Carlin: Then it was Henry's turn to take the express. Gordon watch him getting ready.
  • Gordon: Be careful, Henry. You're not pulling the Flying Kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • George Carlin: Henry went off in a huff, and Gordon yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Gordon: Is it coaches or freight cars?
  • Driver: Cars.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Cars.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Puh-huh.
  • George Carlin: Gordon's fire was slow to start, so Edward had to push Gordon to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Gordon: I won't go, I won't go!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. At last, Gordon was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Gordon was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Gordon: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Gordon: Oosh!
  • George Carlin: He hissed.
  • Gordon: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great engine. Don't you understand that?
  • George Carlin: They telephoned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So Gordon didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Edward to take it please. And Gordon? Leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • George Carlin: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Oh, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • George Carlin: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Gordon fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Gordon fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • George Carlin: Gordon layed in the ditch all day.
  • Gordon: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Gordon: I shall never get out.
  • George Carlin: But that evening, they lifted Gordon and made a rope of sleepers under his wheels to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and James and Henry pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety.
  • (Gordon is pulled to safety, we show a close up of his wheels, and finally a shot of him on the turntable)
  • George Carlin: Late that night, Gordon crawled home, a sadder and wiser engine.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas' Anthem)

  • (Whistle blowing)
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Diesel's Devious Deed)
  • George Carlin: Diesel the new engine was sulking. The freight cars were not stop singing rudely at him.
  • Freight Cars: Show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Diesel. In and out he creeps about...
  • George Carlin: Duck was horrified.
  • Duck: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Duck: I'm sorry our cars were rude to you, Diesel.
  • George Carlin: Diesel was still furious.
  • Diesel: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Henry: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: Duck would never do that. We engines have our differences, but we never talked about them to the cars. That would be dis...dis...
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry. Diesel hated Duck. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Duck. Next day, he spoke to the cars.
  • Diesel: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Duck told me one about Gordon. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Gordon I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Freight Cars: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the cars.
  • Freight Cars: Gordon will be cross with Duck when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Duck for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the engines as they went by. Soon Gordon, Henry, and James found out why.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in James.
  • Henry: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Henry.
  • Henry: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Henry: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Henry: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • George Carlin: Duck was tired out. The cars had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three engines barred his way.
  • (Gordon, James and Henry wheesh steam with fury, causing Duck to get dazed)
  • James: Keep out!
  • Duck: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Duck: I'm tired.
  • James: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the engines.
  • Gordon: We're tired of you. We like Diesel. We don't like you.
  • Henry: You tell tales about us to the cars.
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • Duck: I don't!
  • Gordon, James and Henry: You do!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt came to stop the noise.
  • Gordon: Duck called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Gordon.
  • James: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James.
  • Henry: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Duck?
  • George Carlin: Duck considered.
  • Duck: I only wish sir.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Duck: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: (clearing throat)
  • Gordon, James and Henry: He made cars laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the engines. Sir Topham Hatt recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Did you, Duck?
  • Duck: Certainly not, Sir. No steam engine will be as mean as that.
  • George Carlin: Diesel lurked up.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now, Diesel, you heard what Duck said.
  • Diesel: I can't understand it, Sir, to think that Duck of all engines. I'm dreadfully grieved, Sir, but no nothing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Diesel squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, Duck, but you must go to Edward's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Duck: As you wish, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Duck trundled sadly away, while Diesel smirked with triumph.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Sir Topham Hatt)
  • (Gordon's whistle toots)
  • Children (singing): His name is Sir Topham Hatt. Some people say he's - Stout!! Rather rotund, really quite round. But he doesn't see it like that.
  • Girl: He's considered he's a gentleman of merit.
  • Boy: With a railway exquisitely fine.
  • Children: (singing) But his main aim is to see that his trains run right on time. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's as plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. One day he was having breakfast, when Thomas decided to call. He arrived unexpected and quite uninvited straight through the dining room wall.
  • Boy: My goodness! Said the controller. Why didn't you knock at the door?
  • Children: (singing) This won't do at all just look at my wall and my breakfast on the floor. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway there is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. He's so proud of his engines each and everyone. And though he's strict and meticulous, favorites he has none. If ever there is trouble, you know who will be there.
  • Girl: If there's ever a crash a smash or a muddle, he's there on the double, no trouble.
  • Children: (singing) Cause it's the fat controller's railway. When Henry stayed in the tunnel, everyone tried to push. But Sir Topham Hatt would have none of that.
  • Boy: My doctor has forbidden me to push.
  • Children: (singing) And one day the wind blew his hat off.
  • Girl: A goat in the field saw his chance.
  • Children: (singing) He just picked up the hat, said thank you for that and ate it up for lunch. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. The fat controller's railway. Sir Top-ham Hatt.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Ghostly Trick)
  • (Owl hooting twice)
  • (Ghost whistle blows)
  • Percy: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Thomas: Percy what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Thomas and Toby: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas and Toby.
  • Percy: He didn't say, oh it makes my wheels wobble to think of it.
  • Thomas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're just a silly little engine. I'm not scared.
  • Percy: Thomas didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Percy's Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Percy was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Percy knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Percy: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (Percy's whistle toots and a loud crash is heard as he hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Percy broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Percy's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Percy, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Percy chuckled.
  • Percy: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Thomas. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little engine.
  • George Carlin: Toby promised to help.
  • (Toby leaves Percy and heads back to the sheds)

  • Toby: Percy's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby.
  • Thomas: Poor engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Toby: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Thomas: Out with it, Toby, I can't wait all evening.
  • Toby: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: It looked like Percy's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Thomas: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Toby. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear Percy's whistle and a loud brake sound)
  • Percy: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Percy.
  • Toby: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!

  • (Percy's whistle is heard again, along with a ghostly one)
  • Thomas: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Percy was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Percy: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Toby: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Toby.
  • Toby: ...that our Thomas was just seen a ghost!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Let's Have A Race)
  • Children: (singing) A lesson that's worth learning One you never should forget Is the art of friendly rivalry It's not always about winning You must learn that from the start Enjoy yourself remember What counts is taking part.
