  • Cat: Ah, Mr. Conductor 1.
  • Dog: You came here for help.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Oh yes i do.
  • Penry: I'd love to do Kung Fu.
  • Spot: Do engines pull trains on the Island of Sodor?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sure. It happened to Thomas. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and A Big Day For Thomas starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas the Tank Engine was grumbling to the other engines.
  • Thomas: I spent my time pulling coaches about ready for you to take out on journeys.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The other engines laughed.
  • Thomas: Why can't I pull passenger trains too?
  • Gordon: You're too impatient.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They said.
  • Gordon: You'd be sure to leave something behind.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'll show you.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: One night, he and Henry were alone. Henry was ill. The men worked hard, but he didn't get better. He felt just as bad next morning. Henry usually pull the first train and Thomas had to get his coaches ready.
  • Thomas: If Henry is ill.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He thought.
  • Thomas: Perhaps I shall pull his train.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas ran off to find the coaches.
  • Thomas: Come along, come along.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He fussed.
  • Coaches: There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They grumbled. Thomas took them to the platform and wanted to run round at once. But his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Driver: Don't be impatient, Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas waited and waited. The people got in, the conductor and stationmaster walked up and down, the porter banged the doors and still Henry didn't come. Thomas got more and more excited. Sir Topham Hatt came to see what was the matter, and the conductor and stationmaster told him about Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Find another engine.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He ordered.
  • Both: There's only Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You'll have to do it then, Thomas. Be quick now.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So Thomas ran round to the front and back down on the coaches ready to start.
  • Driver: Let's not be impatient.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll wait till everything was ready.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: But Thomas was too excited to listen. What happened then, no one knows. Perhaps they forgot to couple Thomas to the train, or perhaps the Driver pulled the leather by mistake. Anyhow, Thomas started without his coaches. As the pass the signal tower, men waved and shouted, but he didn't stop.
  • Thomas: They're waving because I'm such a splendid engine.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He thought importantly.
  • Thomas: Henry says it's hard to pull trains, but I think it's easy. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He puffed, pretending to be like Gordon.
  • Thomas: People had never seen me pulling a train before. It's nice of them to wave.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: And he whistled.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Thank you.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Then he came to a signal at danger.
  • Thomas: Bother!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He thought.
  • Thomas: I must stop, and I was going so nicely too. What a nuisance signals are.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He blew an angry "Peep peep!" on his whistle. The signalman ran up.
  • Signalman: Hello, Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He said.
  • Signalman: What are you doing here?
  • Thomas: I'm pulling the train.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can't you see?
  • Signalman: Where are your coaches then?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas looked back.
  • Thomas: Why bless me.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He said.
  • Thomas: If we hadn't leave them behind.
  • Signalman: Yes.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You better go quickly and fetch them.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Poor Thomas was so sad he nearly cried.
  • Driver: Cheer up.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's go back quickly and try again.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Sir Topham Hatt what a bad railway it was. But when Thomas came back, they saw how sad he was and couldn't be cross. He was coupled to the train, and this time he really pulled it. Afterwards, the other engines laughed at Thomas and said...
  • Henry: Look! There's Thomas, who wanted to pull the train, but forgot about the coaches.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: But Thomas had already learned, not to make the same mistake again.
  • (A Big Day For Thomas ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Of course, Thomas wasn't so careless after all.
  • Cat: Gee, i believe you're right.
  • Dog: You'd be leaving right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Right.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)

  • Schemee: Yeah.
  • Stan: Our plan to make thing worse will come true.
  • Heff: Oh boy.
  • (We find Mr. Conductor 1 with Flint and Rosemary)
  • Flint: I need a Lady Gaga song.
  • Rosemary: That'll be Telephone.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Correct. I'll take you to the Anything Tunnel for Lady Gaga's hit song.
  • (We zoom to the Anything Tunnel and Telephone starts)
  • Lady Gaga: Hello, hello, baby, you called? I can't hear a thing I have got no service In the club, you say? say? Wha-wha-what did you say, huh?

  • Beyonce: Boy, the way you blowing up my phone Won't make me leave no faster Put my coat on faster Leave my girls no faster I should've left my phone at home 'Cause this is a disaster Calling like a collector Sorry, I cannot answer.
  • Lady Gaga: Not that I don't like you I'm just at a party And I am sick and tired of my phone r-ringing.

  • (Telephone ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So that's why phones are in need of a change.
  • Cat: Wow, that's interesting.
  • Dog: Very cool.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Exactly.
  • Penry: It's been many time since.
  • Spot: Are you sure that funnels are in replacements?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They do. It happened to Peter Sam when he needed a new one. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Special Funnel starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: It was winter on the Island of Sodor. Peter Sam puffed nervously along the line. His funnel had never been the same since his accident with some cars. Now the biting wind was trying to blow it away.
  • Peter Sam: My funnel feels wobbly.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He complained.
  • Peter Sam: I wish manager would hurry up with my new one. He says it would be something special.
  • Engines: You and your special funnel.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed the other engines. The were fun to Peter Sam, but his special funnel had become quite a joke. The winter wind grew worse. The rain came too turning hillside streams into torrents which threatened to wash the line away. Rusty the Little Diesel worked hard carrying workmen up and down the line. They were removing branches and trees so water could flow away. But one morning, Rusty's driver brought bad news.
  • Rusty's Driver: There's been a washout near the tunnel. The track bed had been swept away. We must repait the damage inmediately.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The important work took longer than it expected. As days went by, the weather changed. It became frosty and much colder. The workmen finished at last. Peter Sam was most careful as he took the morning train over the mended piece of track. Soon, he approached the tunnel. It was short and curved so his driver could not see right through it. Peter Sam was heading for trouble.
  • Peter Sam's Driver: There's something hanging from the roof.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Shouted his driver. Peter Sam came out of the tunnel a different looking engine. He no longer had his funnel.
  • Conductor: Here's what hit you, Peter Sam.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Called the conductor and he produced a think cold icicle. They set off again. But without his funnel, the journey was very difficult. Then the fireman saw an old drain pipe lying beside the track.
  • Peter Sam's Fireman: We'll use that instead of your funnel. At least it'll help control the smoke.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Peter Sam finished his journey with the drain pipe wired to his boiler. The other engines laughed and Sir Handel sang a song about.
  • Sir Handel: (singing) Peter Sam said again and again, his new funnel will put ours to shame, went into a tunnel and lost his old funnel now his famous new funnel's a drain.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The teasing continue until at last the day came when his new funnel arrived. Sir Topham Hatt proudly presented it.
  • Peter Sam: Oh dear, someone squashed it.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Peter Sam. But Sir Topham Hatt laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry, Peter Sam, this funnel is something special indeed. You'll soon see.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Peter Sam's new funnel had special pipes which made puffing much easier.
  • Peter Sam: I feel stronger than ever before.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He hummed. Even Sir Handel was impressed.
  • Sir Handel: I can't understand it. Peter Sam just seems to stroll along the line. He makes work look so easy.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The engines don't laugh at Peter Sam's funnel now. They wished they had one like it.
  • (Special Funnel ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So that's why Peter Sam had a new funnel.
  • Cat: Wow, that's totally awesome.
  • Dog: You'd be leaving right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Right.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Flint: It's been a long time since.
  • Rosemary: House Calls are completed.
  • Stacy: Oh, i love that.
  • Harry: Right.
  • Billy: You know, these guys are famous.
  • Cat: Just like us.
  • Dog: Of course.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 reappears)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Why there's always a good work.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 gives a thumbs up as the episode ends)
