Whistles and Sneezes

  • George Carlin: Gordon was cross.
  • Gordon: Why should Henry have a new shape?
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Gordon: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful. And there's anothing thing. Henry whistles too much. No respectable engines ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: Poor Henry didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy.
  • Percy: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Gordon: Goodbye, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Gordon.
  • Gordon: We are glad to have you with us again, but remember what I said.
  • George Carlin: Later, Henry stopped at Edward's station.
  • Edward: Hello, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Henry: Thank you, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Henry.
  • Henry: Shh! Can you hear something?
  • Edward: It sounds like Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: And it ought to be Gordon, but Gordon never whistles like that.
  • George Carlin: It was Gordon. He came rushing down the hill at a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Henry and he didn't look at Edward. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Edward: Well!
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Henry: It isn't wrong...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: ...but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: And he told Edward what Gordon had said. Meanwhile, Gordon screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone covered their ears. Sir Topham Hatt covered his ears too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Take him away,
  • George Carlin: He bellowed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: ...and stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed sadly away, but he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up, and knocked his whistle valve in place.
  • (Gordon's whistle stops.)
  • George Carlin: That night, Gordon slunk into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • (Owl hoots.)
  • Henry: It isn't wrong...
  • George Carlin: Murmured Henry to no one in particular.
  • Henry: ...but we just don't do it.
  • George Carlin: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Henry was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Henry: I feel so well! I feel so well!
  • George Carlin: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock! Trickety-trock!
  • George Carlin: Hummed his coaches. Then, he saw some boys on the bridge.
  • Henry: Peep peep! Hello!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • (Glasses breaks.)
  • Henry: Oh!
  • George Carlin: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number; they thought they fun to dropped stones on him instead.
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass! They've broken our glass!
  • George Carlin: Cried the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Henry's Driver: No.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Leave it to Henry and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • George Carlin: They asked.
  • Henry's Driver: Can you keep a secret?
  • Passengers: Yes, yes!
  • Henry's Driver: Well, then,
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • (Henry's whistle toots.)
  • George Carlin: Lots of people were waiting at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Henry's Driver: Henry has plenty of ashes.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we pass the bridge. Henry is as excited as we are, aren't you old fellow?
  • George Carlin: Henry felt more stuffed-up and excited. Soon, they could see the boys and they all had stones.
  • Henry's Driver: Are you ready, Henry?
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Boys: Watch It! Said
  • George Carlin The Boys
  • Henry: AH AH AH AH AH-CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Henry's Driver: Well done, Henry! You Did It!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver. Henry went home hoping that next time he saw Gordon and the boys, they would have learned not to be so mean.

James In A Mess

  • George Carlin: Toby and Henrietta were enjoying their new job on the Island of Sodor. But they do look old fashioned and did need new paint. James was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • James: Yech! What dirty objects.
  • George Carlin: He would say. At last, Toby lost patience.
  • Toby: James,
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Toby: ...why are you red?
  • James: I am a splendid engine.
  • George Carlin: Answered James.
  • James: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Toby: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Toby innocently.
  • Toby: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • George Carlin:
