  • (The Thomas Season 6 intro is shown and we begin Gordon Takes A Tumble)
  • Alec Baldwin: 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!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon wheeshed.
  • Gordon: You'll get my paint all sooty.
  • Salty: Pulling freight cars is a sooty job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Salty.
  • Salty: But then you wouldn't know.
  • Gordon: Of course not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed importantly.
  • Gordon: Express engines don't pull freight cars it wouldn't be dignified.
  • Percy: Dingyfried?
  • Alec Baldwin: Puzzled Percy.
  • Percy: What's that?
  • Gordon: Dignified.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon corrected.
  • Gordon: It means...
  • Salty: It means if someone's too big for his buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Salty.
  • Gordon: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You must go to the docks inmediately.
  • Henry, Thomas and Percy: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: They whistled. Then Sir Topham Hatt turned to the big blue engine.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You too, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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!?
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Gordon crossly.
  • Thomas: Why the rush, Gordon?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: If I must pull freight cars then I'll show Salty how an express engine pulls freight cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed.
  • Salty: Careful, captain.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty tooted.
  • Salty: You don't wanna get too big for your buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Gordon ignored Salty. The next morning, Gordon raced along with his heavy load.
  • Gordon: Now this is how you pull freight cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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!
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman cried.
  • Signalman: Express trains aren't supposed to go that way.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and he went even faster. The branch line couldn't take his weight and the rails buckled.
  • Gordon: Oh help!
  • Alec Baldwin: 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)
  • Alec Baldwin: No one was hurt, but poor Gordon felt very undignified.
  • Gordon: What will Sir Topham Hatt say.
  • Alec Baldwin: He groaned. He found out soon enough.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Gordon.
  • Alec Baldwin: 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.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon and he let out a sad wheesh of steam. Gordon was soon repaired and back at the docks for work. He was very unhappy with himself.
  • Thomas: Everyone makes mistakes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Even you.
  • James: Salty's sorry he teased you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James.
  • Gordon: And I'm sorry i'm too big for my buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Gordon. And all the engines gave a jolly toot even Gordon.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin James Goes Buzz Buzz)
  • George Carlin: Trevor the Traction Engine was enjoying his work in Vicarage Orchard. Birds were singing and apples were brightening on the trees. It was a lovely day.
  • James: Hello Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Trevor: Oh I am.
  • George Carlin: Replied Trevor.
  • James: What's that noise?
  • Trevor: It's the bees.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Trevor.
  • Trevor: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • George Carlin: Just then, BoCo the diesel engine hummed in.
  • BoCo: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • George Carlin: James didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • BoCo: Goodbye, Trevor.
  • George Carlin: Called BoCo and set off to see Duck at the next station. Bill and Ben the tank engine twins were busy arranging cars. But they scampered off when they saw BoCo.
  • BoCo: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed BoCo.
  • BoCo: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Edward soon put a stop in their games.
  • Duck: Edward is the only one who can keep Bill and Ben in order.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • BoCo: A good name.
  • George Carlin: Replied BoCo.
  • BoCo: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • George Carlin: James bustled in.
  • James: What's that, Duck? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Duck: His name is BoCo, and he didn't. We...
  • James: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Duck: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Duck. The next morning, James arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • George Carlin: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. James heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to James. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • James: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • George Carlin: Hissed James. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: The bee thought James had burnt him on purpose.
  • (The bee charges toward James)
  • George Carlin: So it stung James right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • James: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • George Carlin: Whistled James. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to James' warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • George Carlin: James' reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for James. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • George Carlin: Later that evening, James was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you James the Red-Nosed Engine.
  • George Carlin: Everyone laughed even James. But instead, they decided to call James "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Twin Trouble)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald and Douglas are Scottish twin engines. They are practical peppery and proud. They nearly always work together. One day, Donald and Douglas were chuffing through the countryside hauling a heavy load. Down the line, Trevor the Traction Engine had been struggling with a big cartload of hay. Crossing the tracks, the cart's wheels have broken off. Then Trevor heard a whistle.
  • Trevor: Oh no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Trevor cried. Donald could see the cart.
  • Donald: Stop!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. Donald's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late.
  • (Donald crashes into the cart)
  • Alec Baldwin: Luckily, no one was hurt.
  • Donald: Stop being pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald snapped.
  • Douglas: Don't call me pushy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas snapped back.
  • Donald: You shouldn't have pushed me into the cart.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald.
  • Douglas: You pulled me you mean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Argued Douglas.
  • Donald: Didn't!
  • Douglas: Did!
  • Donald: Did not!
  • Douglas: Did too!
  • Alec Baldwin: Before long the track was cleared and Donald and Douglas were on their way. The twins were so cross they refuse to speak to each other for the rest of the day. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt needed an engine to help Duck at the smelter's yards.
  • Donald: May I go, sir?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald eagerly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I only need one engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not two.
  • Donald: I am only one engine, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: And I would like to help with Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was surprised but agreed. Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: Won't you miss one another?
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I know I missed Annie and Clarabel.
  • Douglas: I'll work better on my own.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Douglas.
  • Donald: I have work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Donald. At first, Donald enjoyed working with Duck. Then, things started to go wrong.
  • Donald: Did you shunt those freight cars on the other line?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald asked.
  • Duck: You said you wanted them on the other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck replied.
  • Donald: Not that other line, the other other line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald was cross.
  • Donald: Douglas would have known what I've meant.
  • Alec Baldwin: He huffed. Douglas was working on his own. He chuffed dutifully through the beautiful countryside. But Douglas had no one to share it with. Altough he tried not to he was beginning to miss his twin. That night, Douglas' Driver took him to see Donald.
  • Douglas: I was just passing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: Have you come to say you're sorry?
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald sniffed. This made Douglas very cross.
  • Douglas: I've nothing to be sorry for.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said and steamed away in a huff. The next day, Donald was in a bad mood. Duck could see he was getting too close for the buffers.
  • Duck: Look out!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck shouted, but it was too late.
  • (Donald falls into a pit)
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald's driver was very cross.
  • Donald's Driver: This would've happened if you were working with Douglas.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Donald knew he was right and Duck knew he couldn't pull Donald back onto the rails. So he went for help. Douglas was sadly finishing his work as Duck steamed into the depot.
  • Duck: Donald is in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Douglas: Donald in trouble?
  • Alec Baldwin: Douglas cried.
  • Douglas: I'm on my way!
  • Alec Baldwin: And he steamed off as fast as he could. Douglas struggled and struggled, he finally pulled his twin gently back on to the tracks. He was relief Donald wasn't hurt.
  • Donald: Thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Donald said.
  • Donald: And I'm sorry.
  • Douglas: No, I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Douglas.
  • Donald: I'm sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Insisted Donald.
  • Duck: Don't argue about who's sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: Just be glad you're back together.
  • Alec Baldwin: And they were.
  • (Another nameplate 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)
  • George Carlin: Thomas was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • 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: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Percy all along)
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Annie and Clarabel.
  • George Carlin: It was morning when Thomas returned.
  • Toby: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Thomas: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I knew you be sad about Percy, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (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 nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Saves The Day)
  • George Carlin: Every day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the station to catch his train.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello.
  • George Carlin: He always said to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't let the silly freight cars tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • George Carlin: There were lots of freight cars and Thomas worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • George Carlin: He told Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and freight cars.
  • George Carlin: One day, Thomas was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an engine whistling.
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The engine was James and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • James: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Freight Cars: On! On!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the freight cars. Still whistling...
  • James: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Poor James disappeared.
  • Thomas: I like to teach those freight cars a lesson.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas the Tank Engine.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • George Carlin: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: James is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • George Carlin: Thomas was coupled on and off they went. Thomas worked his hardest.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He wasn't predenting to be like Gordon. He really meant it.
  • Thomas: Bother those freight cars and their tricks. I hope poor James isn't hurt.
  • George Carlin: James' driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • James' Driver and Fireman: Never mind James.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • James' Driver and Fireman: It was those silly freight cars and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • George Carlin: Thomas pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Thomas: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Thomas. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Thomas: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • George Carlin: He told the freight cars. And they answered...
  • Freight Cars: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • George Carlin: They left the broken cars. Then with two cranes they put James back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift James away from the field. A surprised Thomas watches as James is put back to the rails)
  • George Carlin: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Thomas helped him back to the shed. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I heard all about it and I'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful engine. James shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Thomas: Oh thank you sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas. Now Thomas is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Annie and Clarabel. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Edward and Henry stop quite often and tell him the news. Gordon is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Gordon: Boop Boop.
  • George Carlin: And Thomas always whistles...
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: In return.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Fogman)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was winter on the Island of Sodor. The first fogs had begun to roll in from the sea. Thomas, Annie and Clarabel love the quiet of Misty Valley. But Thomas must be careful of rocks that sometimes roll onto the tracks. Cyril the Fogman has a very important job. He puts detonators on the tracks to warn the engines when there's fog ahead.
  • (Boom!)
  • Thomas: Oooh.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shivered Thomas as he ran over the detonator.
  • Thomas: That made my axles tingle.
  • Thomas' Driver: Cyril's done his job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We better slow down. There's fog ahead.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Cyril.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. That night at the sheds, Sir Topham Hatt had something special to show the engines. It was very large and strange looking.
  • Percy: What is it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's a new invention, a railway foghorn.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It warns you when there's fog ahead. Like this.
  • (The foghorn begins to wail and bricks from the roof fall down into the floor then it turns off)
  • Percy: That's loud!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • James: Too loud.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed James.
  • Gordon: Sounds like a tugboat to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Gordon. Thomas looked worried.
  • Thomas: What will Cyril do now?
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It will begin in a much needed rest.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Besides, this new foghorn will be more reliable.
  • Thomas: Poor Cyril.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's been scrapped.
  • Alec Baldwin: The next day, Percy was cheerfully chuffing through Misty Valley when suddenly...
  • (The foghorn wails again)
  • Percy: Oh, Jeepers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Percy.
  • Percy: That foghorn is so loud it rattles my dome. It doesn't even make my axles tingle.
  • Percy's Driver: Still, we better slow down.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Percy's Driver: There's fog ahead.
  • Alec Baldwin: The foghorn had been so loud that it made the hillside shake. No sooner was Percy out of sight, when one rock fell, then another and another. Before long, the track was blocked and the foghorn was crushed. Not far away. Thomas was puffing happily right on time.
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Thomas: I can't see a thing!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. And then before he could think of anything else...
  • (Crash!)
  • Thomas: Bust my buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: What happened to the foghorn.
  • Thomas' Driver: I don't know.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But at least nobody's been hurt.
  • Thomas' Fireman: Toby will be coming down the line any minute.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his fireman.
  • Thomas: If there's no foghorn here...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: He'll run into us.
  • Voice: Leave it to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called a voice from the fog.
  • Thomas: It's Cyril!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I hope he's in time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby and his coach Henrietta were chuffing along. Toby was looking forward for a well earned drink at the station when...
  • (Boom!)
  • Toby: Fog detonators!
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: There must be fog ahead.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: We better slow down.
  • Alec Baldwin: And just around the next bend, with his axles still tingling, Toby was very glad they did. Otherwise, they would've crashed into Thomas' wreck. Soon the tracks were cleared and Thomas was back on the rails.
  • Thomas: If it hadn't been for Cyril...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Toby might have had a worst accident than me.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Instead of replacing Cyril with a foghorn...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll replace the foghorn with Cryril. You're cleary more reliable.
  • Cyril: Thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Cyril.
  • Toby: And thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Thomas: New inventions are all very well.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Percy: Well they don't make my axles tingle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Proud Day For James)
  • George Carlin: One night, Henry and Gordon were alone with James. Altough Sir Topham Hatt was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other engines will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Henry: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble James?
  • George Carlin: They would tease. James tried to get back by talking about Henry who got shut up in a tunnel and Gordon who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Gordon: You talk too much little James.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: A fine strong engine like me has something to talk about. I'm the only engine who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two engines. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that the signalman sets the switches to make the engines run on the right track. But Gordon was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Gordon: Wake up, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon next morning.
  • Gordon: It's time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • George Carlin: James went to get Gordon's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • James: I wish I was going with you.
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • George Carlin: Gordon with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Sir Topham Hatt was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Gordon started.
  • Gordon: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • George Carlin: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Gordon: Boop boop boop boop boop! Goodbye, little James, see you tomorrow!
  • George Carlin: James watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some freight cars into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. James had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Gordon trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • James: Hello, Gordon. Is it tomorrow?
  • George Carlin: Gordon didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • James: Did you lose your weight, Gordon?
  • Gordon: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • James: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • George Carlin: Said James. All the passengers were shouting at the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon can't do it. Will you pull it for us, James?
  • James: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • George Carlin: So James was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do your best, James.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • James: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches.
  • James: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed James. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to James and Sir Topham Hatt was very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done. Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • James: Yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Answered James. Next day when James came by, Gordon was pushing freight cars.
  • Gordon: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Gordon: I'm teaching these cars manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • George Carlin: And he gave his cars a bump. James and Gordon are now good friends. James sometimes takes the express to give Gordon a rest. Gordon never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of freight cars.
