Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (Then we see the Thomas and Friends Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is a really useful engine. Here's Percy. He is a very happy engine. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. Henry is long and fast. Here's Edward always here to help.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Henry and The Elephant)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine puffed happily along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. You're right on time and really reliable.
  • Thomas: Thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: Ooh, right on time and really reliable.
  • George Carlin: Hummed the coaches. But the big engines were not feeling cheerful at all.
  • Henry: Where's Percy?
  • George Carlin: Mumbled Henry.
  • Henry: He suppose to fetch our coaches.
  • James: We get no rest.
  • George Carlin: Complained James. He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Henry.
  • James: What's the matter, Henry? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead.
  • Henry: I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • Henry: Anyway, you looked silly enough to be a clown you should join the circus.
  • Percy: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: So you heard the news?
  • Gordon: What news?
  • Percy: About the circus.
  • James: Percy, what are you talking about?
  • Percy: The circus has arrived.
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I've been shunting special cars. Sir Topham Hatt need your help too.
  • George Carlin: The engines soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Gordon and Henry were cross all over again when James got to pull the train away. A little later Sir Topham Hatt returned.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Come along, Henry. A tunnel has blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate.
  • Henry: Pushing cars, pushing cars.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Henry. They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside. It was very dark and quiet. But not for long.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Workmen: Help!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the workmen and they ran out.
  • (The Workmen race out of the tunnel)
  • Workman: We started to dig at the block but it grunted and moved.
  • George Carlin: One said.
  • Foreman: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Workman: It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again.
  • Foreman: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: I'll ride in the cars and Henry shall push it out.
  • Henry: Weesh!
  • George Carlin: Said Henry unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain but this was worse. Something big and alive was inside.
  • Henry: Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in.
  • Driver: Neither do I.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: But we must clear the line.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry.
  • (Henry goes into the tunnel)
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong it began to push the train backwards. Out of the tunnel came Henry, then the cars and last of all a large cross elephant.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • Foreman: Well I never!
  • George Carlin: Cried the foreman. The workmen gave him some cake.
  • (Elephant trumpeting)
  • George Carlin: He drank three buckets of water and it was just about to drink another when Henry let off steam.
  • (Elephant trumpets)
  • George Carlin: Cried the elephant. Water went all over Henry. Poor Henry! The elephant and his keeper was so reunited, but Henry was most upset.
  • Henry: An elephant pushed me! An elephant hoosed me!
  • George Carlin: That night, he told the other engines all about it. Gordon and James felt sorry for Henry, but still teased him.
  • Gordon: First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?
  • Thomas: Never mind, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: I think you are brave today, and really reliable too.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Seaside Trip)
  • (Rooster crows)
  • Children: (singing) The sun is shining, it's a lovely day. It won't be long before we're on our way. The guard is waiting, flag in hand. He blows his whistle, we're off to sea and sand. The sky is blue, there's not a cloud in sight, So much excitement, didn't sleep all night. Now Percy's rushing trough the countryside, With people waving as we (peep peep) whistle by. Seaside, we're off to the seaside. Ice cream in cones, Candy floss on your nose. Seaside, we're off to the seaside, We're gonna have a lovely day. Just one more hill to climb and we'll be there. Sounds of the seaside start to fill the air. Then someone shouts out excitedly.
  • Girl: "Look over there, everybody, I can see the sea!"
  • Children: (singing) Seaside, we're off to the seaside, Buckets and spades, all the fairground arcades. Seaside, we're off to the seaside, We're gonna have a lovely day. And when it's cold in wintertime, Still you can be there any time. Just close your eyes, count 1-2-3, Dream your dream and once again be by the sea. Sir Topham Hatt arrives to greet the train. He is so pleased that Percy's right on time. So much excitement, so much glee. We're all together with Percy by the sea. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Building sandcastles with buckets and spades. Seaside, we're all at the seaside. Oh, what a lovely, lovely, day. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Picnics and paddling, swimming all day. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Oh, what a lovely, lovely day. Thank you, Percy, for such a lovely day.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby's Tightrope)
  • George Carlin: One day, Percy arrived in a quarry to collect some stone for his freight cars. Snow and frost lay everywhere. There was not a sound to be heard. Percy ventured further. He found Mavis the new diesel engine resting in the shelter of some rocks.
  • Percy: Cheer up, Mavis.
  • George Carlin: He whistled. Mavis was still remembering the trouble she had with cars.
  • Mavis: Manager says I don't listen for his advice. He says I'd no business chortling down Toby's line. Toby's a fusspot.
  • Percy: Toby has forgotten all about freight cars than you'll ever known.
  • George Carlin: Replied Percy.
  • Percy: You must put the cars where he wants them, then you'll be a really useful engine. Now if you excuse me, I have to take these stones to the harbour.
  • George Carlin: Mavis likes Percy but she still wouldn't to his advice.
  • Mavis: Why shouldn't I go on Toby's line.
  • George Carlin: The siding arrangements are awkward. The put the cars where Toby wanted them, Mavis had to make several journeys. She started making a plan.
  • Mavis: If we used the key stood on Toby's line.
  • George Carlin: She said to her driver.
  • Mavis: We would save all was bother.
  • George Carlin: Her driver suspecting nothing allow them to go as far as the level crossing. A few days later, the weather changed. As the soon melted, the quarry grew busy again. Some trains were so long that before leaving the cars for Toby, Mavis had to go beyond the level crossing with them. Now for her plan. She would go further down the line without it seeming her fault.
  • Mavis: Can you keep a secret?
  • George Carlin: She asked the freight cars.
  • Cars: Yes, yes, yes!
  • George Carlin: They chattered.
  • Mavis: Will you bump me at the level crossing and tell no one I ask you?
  • George Carlin: The cars promised. But while Mavis was away, Toby arrived. He decided to shunt the cars himself. The cars decided to bump him anyway. They reached the level crossing and Toby's brakes came on. This was the signal for the freight cars.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Toby was away. With the cars screaming and yelling behind him. No one realize that melted snow had turned a stream ahead into a torrent and the bridge above it was about to collapse. The rails were now like a tightrope against the thundering water.
  • Toby: Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Toby. His driver thought for control. They came nearer and nearer by the bridge. It was all of nothing now. The driver braked hard.
  • (Toby reaches the broken bridge)
  • George Carlin: Toby stopped still on the rails but with his wheels shredding the tightrope over the abyss. Mavis was horrified and quickly came to the rescue. Workmen anchored Toby with ropes while she pulled the freight cars away. Then, she helped Toby to safety.
  • (Mavis rescuing Toby)
  • Mavis: I'm sorry about the cars.
  • George Carlin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: I can't think how you manage to stop them in time.
  • Toby: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: My driver told me about circus people who walked tightropes, but I just didn't fancy doing it myself.
  • George Carlin: Later, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A very smart piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Mavis, you did well too I hear.
  • Mavis: It was my fault about those cars, sir.
  • George Carlin: She faulted.
  • Mavis: But if I could...
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Could what?
  • Mavis: Come down the line sometimes, Sir? Toby says he'll show me what to do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If your manager agrees.
  • George Carlin: And so it was arranged. Now Mavis is as happy as can be, and Sir Topham Hatt thinks she's really useful indeed.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Really Useful Engine)
  • Children: (singing) He's a really useful engine you know. All the other engines they'll tell you so. He huffs and puffs and whistles, rushing to and fro. He's a really useful engine we adore! He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. He's a really useful engine you know.

Maybe little, but he's never slow. Stand back in amazement, just you watch him go. He's a really useful engine we adore! He's the one, he's the one. He's a really useful engine that we adore. He's the one. He's the number one, Thomas the Tank Engine. He's the really useful engine we adore!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Diesel Does It Again)
  • George Carlin: Duck and Percy enjoyed their work in the harbour, pulling and pushing freight cars full of cargo to and from the key. But one morning, the engines were exhausted. The harbour was busier than ever. Sir Topham Hatt promised that another engine would be found to help them.
  • Percy: Huh. It's about time.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Duck: I ached so much I can hardly get my wheels to move.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Duck. They waited for the engine to arrive. It came as a shock when he did.
  • Diesel: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Diesel in his oily voice. The two engines had not work with Diesel for a long time.
  • Duck: What are you doing here?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Duck.
  • Diesel: Your worth Top...er, Sir Topham Hatt sent me. I hope you are please to see me again. I have to shunt some dreadful tiresome cars.
  • Percy: Shunt where?
  • George Carlin: Said Percy suspiciously.
  • Diesel: Where? Why from here to there.
  • George Carlin: Purred Diesel.
  • Diesel: And then again from there to here. Easy, isn't it?
  • George Carlin: With that, Diesel as if to make himself clear bumped some cars hard.
  • Cars: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the cars.
  • Diesel: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Diesel. Percy and Duck were horrified. They did not trust Diesel at all. They refuse to work and did not leave their shed. Sir Topham Hatt was enjoying his tea and iced bun when the telephone rang.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So there's trouble in the harbour yard? I'll be there right away.
  • George Carlin: Diesel was working loudly and alone. Cargo lay on the key. Ships and passengers were delayed. Everyone was complaining about Sir Topham Hatt's Railway. Percy and Duck were sulking in their shed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What's all this?
  • George Carlin: Demanded Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Percy: We're on strike, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy nervously.
  • Duck: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Added Duck.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, sir, but we don't work with Diesel, sir. You said you sent him packing, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have to give Diesel a second chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm trying to help by bringing Diesel here. Now you must help me he is the only engine available.
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck went sadly back to work. Next day, things were no better. Diesel's driver did not put on his brakes on properly and Diesel started to move. He went bump straight into Percy.
  • Diesel: Wake up there, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Scowled Diesel.
  • Diesel: You have work to do.
  • George Carlin: He didn't even say he was sorry to Percy. Later, Diesel bumped the cars so hard that the loads went everywhere.
  • Percy: What would Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Percy.
  • Duck: He won't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Duck.
  • Diesel: So who's going to tell you I wonder? Two goody-goody tattletales like you I suppose?
  • George Carlin: Percy and Duck did not wanna be tattletales, so they said nothing. Diesel thinking he can getting away from his bad behavior was ruder than ever. Next day, he was shunting freight cars full of China Clay. He banged the cars hard into the buffers, but the buffers weren't secure. The silly cars were sunked! Sir Topham Hatt heard the news. The cars were hoisted safely from the sea but the clay was lost. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severely to Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The harbour master has tell me anything. Things weren't much better here before you arrived. I shall not be inviting you back. Now Duck and Percy, I hope you don't mind having handle the work by yourselves again.
  • Percy: Oh no, Sir.
  • Duck: Yes please, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied the engines. Whistling cheerfully, they puff back to work while Diesel sulk slowly away.
