Transcript

  • (We open this video with the Anchor Bay FBI Warning)
  • (We then see the 2004-2007 Anchor Bay Entertainment logo)
  • (The 2001 HiT Entertainment logo is soon followed)
  • (The Thomas Season 7 intro is shown and we begin Cranky Bugs)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy enjoyed working at the docks. They like to see air and the sound of the gulls. But one day, the friends were feeling hot and bothered. A crane was causing trouble. His name was Cranky and this was his first day at the docks.
  • Cranky: You're useless little bugs!
  • Alec Baldwin: He called from above.
  • Cranky: If you put these freight cars on the inside lines then i wouldn't have so far to travel.
  • Thomas: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: No crane has ever complained before.
  • Cranky: Well i'm complaining now.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Cranky banged his load down on the keyside. Later, the two engines met Gordon and James and told them about Cranky.
  • Gordon: Cranes are nearly fairy things they need a lot of attention like me in fact.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • James: You should see the situation from Cranky's point of view.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • James: He's high up in the air coping with wind, rain and making sun. Then he looks down and sees you two little engines being annoying. No wonder he calls you bugs.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Cranky heard that the big engines agreed with him, he grew bossier still.
  • Cranky: Come on, come on. Push those freight cars closer to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Percy was too upset to concentrate and pushed the freight cars too far. Poor Percy. Then, Cranky played a trick on Thomas.
  • Cranky: Push your freight cars onto the outside line. It's easier for me to load up.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Thomas did. But Cranky left the load beside the freight cars, not in them.
  • Cranky: You must have known my arm can't reach you there.
  • Alec Baldwin: Complained Cranky. This mix up caused confusion and delay. Sir Topham Hatt was most upset.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy, this new crane has an important job to do. I have heard that you not been helping him today. You will go to your sheds and consider how you improve yourselves tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Now Thomas and Percy were upset too. That evening, a big storm raged across the island. Cranky and the engines were trapped in the docks.
  • Duck: We're sure to be safe in the sheds.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck. But he was wrong. The engines had no idea they were about to be put in danger by an old tramp steamer. It was running out of control and into a ground straight into the sheds.
  • (The old tramp steamer crashes into the shed)
  • Cranky: (screams)
  • (Cranky lands onto the ground with a loud Kuh-Thud)
  • Henry, James, Duck and Gordon: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called the engines from inside the shed.
  • Cranky: I can't!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Cranky. When the storm was over, Sir Topham Hatt rushed into the scene of the destruction.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas and Percy will help you.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called to Cranky.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And then you can help the engines.
  • Cranky: Oh, please, hurry!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Cranky.
  • Cranky: And tell them I'm sorry I was rude to them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So it was you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I know those engines an apology.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas and Percy soon came to the rescue. And it wasn't too long before Cranky was upright again and clearing the wreckage. At last, all the engines were free.
  • Gordon: Oh, thank you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: What would I've done without you?
  • Cranky: Well I had to be rescued before i help you. But i never I would be by a couple of, bu-bu...
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky was about to say bugs but he quickly corrected himself.
  • Cranky: Uh, small engines thank you. I'll never be rude again. However you two mites are in my way so move over.
  • Percy: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: He's back to bugging us.
  • Thomas: Don't move! You're still attatched to Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late.
  • (Cranky lands on the rails once again)
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky still looks down at the two little engines. But ever since that stormy night, he never calls them bugs or mights, because he knows they might bite back.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Oliver's Find)
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver and his break van Toad liked working in the big yards, but one morning, Toad noticed that Oliver was unhappy. He decided to find out why.
  • Toad: Uh, excuse me, Mr. Oliver. It seems to me that things are not well with you, if you forgive for mentioning it.
  • Oliver: You're quite right, Toad. All I do is shunt these freight cars onto the turntable. I longed for a nice run. It's what an engine really means.
  • Toad: Uh, quite so, Mr. Oliver. May I suggest that you speak to Sir Topham Hatt about your problems.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Oliver said nothing. He just grew unhappier and he was rough with the freight cars.
  • Cars: You're no good, Oliver, you're dangerous. We want Percy.
  • Oliver: Percy's far too busy to be bothered with the likes of you.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Oliver bumped the freight cars hard.
  • (The freight cars fall into the turntable)
  • Workman: You silly engine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted a workman.
  • Workman: It'll take a long time to repair this turntable which'll cause confusion and delay!
  • Alec Baldwin: That night, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oliver, you had caused confusion. I thought you can control freight cars. You should work the mail train for a while. Maybe the night air will clear your smokebox.
  • Oliver: Yes, sir. Sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Oliver sadly.
  • Driver: Cheer up, old chap.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: The mail train run is a fine run for an engine like you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Oliver smiled, but he still felt he had left everyone down. His driver took him along the coastal run with the mail train. The fresh air couldn't help but brighten Oliver's spirits. They made good speed until it was time to collect some important mail from Harold the Helicopter.
  • Oliver: Come on, Harold.
  • Alec Baldwin: At last Harold landed.
  • Harold: Sorry I'm late, great western. Had any uh bit of a problems with one of my arms. Kept letting me down when I was uh meant to be up. You know how it is.
  • Driver: We know that we'll be late for our first run.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Oliver's driver. Soon, they were on their way again. Ahead was a red signal light. Oliver didn't realized that the signalman had dozed off. Oliver whistled several times, but the signal stayed red.
  • Driver: There must be something wrong with that signal. We'll go slowly and stop by the signalbox.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. But they never reached it. The points before the signalbox were switched to an old track. They were going the wrong way. Oliver's fireman was concered.
  • Fireman: We need to find the watertower soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Instead they saw an old station. Disaster lay ahead.
  • (Oliver crashes into a shed)
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile, Sir Topham Hatt was worried.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oliver has not returned. We'll send out a search party.
  • Alec Baldwin: Soon he was high in the sky with Harold.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There they are.
  • Driver: It wasn't Oliver's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm aware of that. I'm just glad to see you were all safe.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then he saw something. It was an empty old house beside the station. He went to inspect it. When he returned, he spoke to Oliver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have found another attraction for our island. We'll make this house as good as new and visitors can have tea and prophets there.
  • Oliver: Hmm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Oliver.
  • Oliver: Getting lost can be interesting but being found can be much nicer. Especially what an engine feels really useful.
  • (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 Haunted Henry)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was a moonlit night. Henry was taking a goods train to the station by the lake.
  • (Owl hoots)
  • Edward: Whenever that owl hoots, a mist rolls in.
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Edward.
  • Edward: There's a legend that when the mist is about, there's a ghost about too. Take care on the old line, Henry.
  • Henry: Stupid bird!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: Owls, mists, ghosts. Edward's going soft to the boiler. There's no mist.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Henry was wrong.
  • Henry: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Henry.
  • Henry's Driver: It's an amber lamp.
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: That means proceed with caution. Who's there?
  • Alec Baldwin: No one replied. Henry crepted slowly forward. He stopped by a tree. It had a sign nailed to it: Beware of The Viaduct. The driver was surprised.
  • Henry's Driver: No one warned us about that before and look, the signal's red and the gates are closed. A-a-and there's a fogman's coat. But where is his owner?
  • Alec Baldwin: Then, they saw a light move within a station building.
  • Henry: G-g-g-g-ghosts!
  • Alec Baldwin: Exclaimed Henry.
  • Henry: Edward was right.
  • Henry's Driver: Something very strange is happening.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Henry's Driver: I think it's best we go back.
  • Henry: So do I!
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed Henry. By morning, the mist had cleared. A workman was talking about the unsafe viaduct.
  • Workman: Lucky you didn't cross it last night.
  • Henry's Driver: Yes, but we don't know who warned us?
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Henry's driver. Later that day, he spoke to Henry.
  • Henry's Driver: The viaduct has been repaired. We can take our train back along the old line tonight.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry really didn't want to. But when nightfall came, he was sizzling nicely. Suddenly, an owl hooted and then Gordon thundered by.
  • Freight Car: Oh look. Henry's spooked.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said a freight car.
  • (Freight Cars giggling)
  • Henry: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Henry.
  • Henry: I'm not scared.
  • Alec Baldwin: But he was. A little later, the fog came down. As they approached the same area, they saw the amber light again.
  • Henry's Driver: Here we go.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry's driver. Then, unknown to Henry, the gates mysteriously closed by themselves and the signal went red. The freight cars had seen everything and they were spooked.
  • Freight Cars: Faster, faster. There's a ghost about.
  • Henry: Stop, stop!
  • Alec Baldwin: Yelled Henry. A mysterious figure watched Henry go by. Ahead was a landslide blocking the line. Henry braked hard but the freight cars hit some of the rubble and plunged into the ravine.
  • (The freight cars fall down and crashed towards the ground with a loud Kuh-Thud)
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, Henry's driver saw a strange sight coming towards them.
  • Henry's Driver: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. The fireman laughed.
  • Henry's Fireman: That's our ghost. It's Old Bailey the Fogman.
  • Alec Baldwin: Old Bailey was very cross.
  • Old Bailey: I tired to warn you about the viaduct. Why didn't ye pay attention?
  • Henry's Driver: We're sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the driver.
  • Henry's Driver: Is there anything we can do to thank you?
  • Old Bailey: I like to operate that old station. If you let me, I promise I wont spook Henry again.
  • Alec Baldwin: And in a little while, Old Bailey's wish was granted.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You and your station will be really useful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Let's hear a hearty thank you to the friendliest, eh, ghost on the island.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone cheered. Especially Henry, who was the happiest of all.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin A Big Surprise For Percy)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was working in the coal yards. He was feeling bored and lonely with only the silly freight cars for company.
  • Driver: Cheer up, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Sir Topham Hatt has told me that we must be here again tomorrow. We've just got to get the best of a bad situation.
  • Percy: I'll try, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy. Next morning, the freight cars started teasing Percy.
  • Cars: Percy, Percy, green and small, he's no use to us at all, around the yard to puff and blow but on a hills, he's oh so slow!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Then he took the freight cars to the coal hopper to be loaded up. Percy still felt glum as he puffed up to the top of the hill. He parked his freight cars and then set off back down the mines. Not even a cheerful sight of Bertie the Bus could bring a smile to Percy's face.
  • Bertie: What's the matter, Percy?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bertie.
  • Percy: Nothing exciting ever happens. That's the matter.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Percy.
  • Percy: It's just coal coal coal and cars cars cars. I'm bored bored bored.
  • Bertie: Excitement is surprising.
  • Alec Baldwin: Observed Bertie.
  • Bertie: You never know when it'll happen. Overwise, it wouldn't be exciting. Toodle peep.
  • Percy: It would be surprising if something surprising happened.
  • Alec Baldwin: Muttered Percy. Later, he stopped by the water tower for a drink.
  • Toby: Hello, Percy. How are things?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby.
  • Percy: Boring.
  • Toby: Well, why not have a few spins on a turntable? You'll like that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Percy: I think it just make me feel giddy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver interrupted.
  • Driver: Stop gossiping, you two.
  • Toby: Cheer up, Percy. You soon know about cars than any other engine. That'll be exciting.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Toby. The freight cars were still grumpy and there was more of them then ever.
  • Cars: You much too small to pull one of us. We want another engine who would be struggling at the hill all night! All night, all right, you can puff and blow, but on a hill, you're still slow! Ha, ha!
  • Percy: Slow yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Stuttered Percy.
  • Cars: Temper, temper.
  • Alec Baldwin: Giggled the cars. Percy decided to simply carry on.
  • Driver: Go to it, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted his driver. The freight cars were still joking.
  • Cars: Too slow, more power, here all night, tomorrow too!
  • Percy: Be quiet!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy angrily. Then there was trouble. A coupling broke.
  • Cars: Surprise, surprise! Catch us if you can!
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy.
  • (The freight cars speed away from Percy and pass Bertie)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy's driver phoned the signalman and the yard forman told Sir Topham Hatt what was happening.
  • Yard Foreman: They're heading for the big hill! It'll slow them down but they roll back again right into the village.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then we'll just have to stop them, won't we?
  • Alec Baldwin: The chase was on.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie go after the runaway cars)
  • Alec Baldwin: As they approach the hill, they overtook the freight cars. Sir Topham Hatt and Bertie screeched to a halt, and waited for them near the top. The hill slow the freight cars right down to a stand still. Then the men quickly put wooden blocks behind their wheels so they couldn't roll backwards. The freight cars were now secured. Just then, Percy arrived.
  • Bertie: Well, what do you think of that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Joked Bertie.
  • Bertie: A good chase is always exciting.
  • Percy: It was certainly a surprise.
  • Alec Baldwin: Decided Percy.
  • Percy: And you are right, Bertie. A really useful engine should never be surprise by surprise.
  • (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 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Emily's New Coaches)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a splendid day on the Island of Sodor. Thomas was taking Annie and Clarabel back to the yards. A new engine had arrived and he wanted to say hello. The engine was beautiful with shiny paintwork and a gleaming brass dome.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, meet Emily.
  • Thomas: Hello, Emily.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Emily, collect your coaches. You and your driver must learn the line.
  • Emily: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: She answered. Thomas was impressed. Later, the only coaches Emily's driver could find were Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily's Driver: These aren't your sort of coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Emily's Driver: But I suppose they'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Annie and Clarabel felt insulted.
  • Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Clarabel whispered. Emily puffed carefully along the track.
  • Annie and Clarabel: How dare he say we'll do, how dare he say we'll do.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled the coaches. Thomas saw Emily coming down the line, pulling Annie and Clarabel.
  • Emily: Hello, Thomas.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily called. But Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: Those are my coaches. Give them back!
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily didn't hear Thomas and she went on her way. Then, Edward passed and Percy. When Emily whistled hello, the engines didn't whistle back. Emily couldn't understand why they were so unfriendly. She was upset. Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to go to the docks to pick up new coaches.
  • Thomas: New coaches? But sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Really useful engines don't argue.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas didn't want new coaches, he wanted Annie and Clarabel back. When Oliver saw Emily return to the yards, he was surprised.
  • Oliver: Those are Thomas' coaches.
  • Emily: So that's why he looked cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Emily.
  • Emily: I'll go and apologize.
  • Thomas: Don't want new coaches, don't want new coaches.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Thomas. Later, Emily was still looking for Thomas when a signalman flagged her down.
  • Signalman: Oliver hasn't cleared his signalbox.
  • Michael Brandon: He told Emily's driver.
  • Signalman: Please, go and see what's wrong.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily could see that Oliver had broken down on the crossing. Then, Emily heard Thomas' whistle.
  • (Thomas' whistle tooting)
  • Emily: Oh dear!
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas could see Oliver. He knew he could never stop in time.
  • Oliver: Help!
  • Michael Brandon: Emily charged towards Oliver and with a huge effort, pushed him across the tracks, just in time.
  • Oliver: Thanks.
  • Emily: I did it.
  • Michael Brandon: Later, Sir Topham Hatt praised Emily.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, you were a very brave engine.
  • Oliver: The bravest.
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Oliver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It gives me great pleasure to present you with two new coaches.
  • Emily: Thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Emily.
  • Emily: Thomas, I'm sorry I took Annie and Clarabel.
  • Thomas: And I'm sorry I was so cross.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas.
  • Emily: Friends?
  • Thomas: Friends.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily loves her coaches and being part of Sir Topham Hatt's railway.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Grand Opening)
  • Michael Brandon: The engines on the mountain railway were excited. They were helping to build a new line. It would take visitors to even more beautiful places on the Island of Sodor. Sir Topham Hatt arrived with important news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The grand opening is this afternoon. I want to see the new line from the air. Lady Hatt and I will arrive on Harold The Helicopter.
  • Michael Brandon: Just then, Skarloey chugged in.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You're late for the announcement.
  • Michael Brandon: Complained Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Really useful engines are never late.
  • Skarloey: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: At the airfield there was another problem.
  • Harold's Pilot: Engine trouble.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the pilot.
  • Harold's Pilot: Harold's not going anywhere today.
  • Michael Brandon: Lady Hatt was most upset.
  • Lady Hatt: But I've been looking forward to the grand opening all week.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And I, my dear, will find a solution.
  • Michael Brandon: And he did.
  • Lady Hatt: Topham, you cannot be serious. Me ride in this.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The wind direction is perfect. We'll be there in no time.
  • Michael Brandon: Soon the hot air balloon rose into the sky. But Skarloey was upset.
  • Skarloey: All this extra work is going to make me late again.
  • Michael Brandon: The hot air balloon was floating peacefully through the sky. Lady Hatt was enjoying herself.
  • Lady Hatt: The new line looks splendid.
  • Michael Brandon: She said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you, my dear.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. Down the track, the workmen were still loading their ladders.
  • Skarloey: Hurry up, hurry up!
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey puffed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: If Skarloey doesn't hurry.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He'll be late again.
  • Michael Brandon: All the engines were ready for the grand opening.
  • Rusty: Where's Skarloey?
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty asked.
  • Peter Sam: He promised to be on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Peter Sam. At last, Skarloey was on his way. Then there was trouble. The balloon's flame suddenly went out, the air in the balloon cooled and the balloon started to fall.
  • Pilot: Hold tight.
  • Michael Brandon: The pilot called.
  • Lady Hatt: I want to get out!
  • Michael Brandon: Demanded Lady Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not now, dear.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Skarloey: The balloon's going to land in the tree.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Skarloey. And it came down right in front of Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: There's Sir Topham Hatt!
  • Lady Hatt: My hat is ruined!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Lady Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So is mine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Skarloey's Driver: Don't worry.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Skarloey's driver.
  • Skarloey's Driver: We'll soon have you down.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Am I glad to see you, Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Thank you, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Before long, Sir Topham Hatt and Lady Hatt were safely on the ground. They boarded Skarloey's boxcar and set off at once. Everyone was waiting as Skarloey brought his important passengers to the grand opening. Sir Topham Hatt declared the new line open.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: With special thanks to Skarloey.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: For helping us get here.
  • Michael Brandon: Everyone cheered.
  • Rusty: Even so you were still late.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Rusty.
  • Skarloey: I know.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: But because I was late, Sir Topham Hatt was right on time.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Grand Opening)
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur loves working on the Island of Sodor. He is new to the railway and is learning his way around. One morning, he discovered the fishing village. The sun made the water sparkle and the seagulls cawed across the harbour. This was Arthur's favorite place. That evening Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's going to be a new line to the fishing village. I had to decide which engine shall run it.
  • Michael Brandon: He paused impressively. Thomas and Percy looked away. They had enough work to do. Arthur hoped he would be chosen.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you will work on the new line.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. But he really didn't like the smell of fish. Arthur was disappointment. Sir Topham Hatt sent him to haul coal to the steelworks. That evening, Thomas was at the washdown when Arthur puffed in.
  • Arthur: Do I smell a fishy engine?
  • Michael Brandon: He teased.
  • Thomas: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Smelly fish, smelly new line.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur wished he could go to the fishing village instead of the steelworks. He'd be much happier than Thomas. The next morning, Thomas was still grumpy. The fishermen had caught lots of fish.
  • Thomas: Hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm a busy engine.
  • Fisherman: And a fussy one too.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the fisherman.
  • Fisherman: Just enjoy the fresh salty smell of the fish.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Thomas steamed as fast as he could along the line. But there was trouble ahead. Some faulty points sent his freight cars one way and Thomas onto the old pier rail.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: The Troublesome Trucks were delighted.
  • Trucks: He's falling in the water! (laughing)
  • Michael Brandon: Luckily, Thomas wasn't hurt and the fish freight cars stayed on the tracks. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news he checked his time table.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Arthur is the newest engine. I'll send him right away.
  • Michael Brandon: It was a hot day. The ice that was keeping the fish cold started to melt.
  • Thomas: I hope someone comes quickly.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: That fish will spoil soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur was surprised to see Thomas in the tidal pool.
  • Arthur: Are you all right, Thomas?
  • Thomas: No. But I'll be much better when you take these fish away.
  • Driver: The breakdown van will be here soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Arthur's Driver. Arthur knew he had to hurry. He raced along the line to the docks and arrived there just in time. Later, Arthur went to see Thomas at the fitter's yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you for helping me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Arthur: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Arthur.
  • Arthur: I wish I had the fishing village line all the time.
  • Thomas: But please tell Sir Topham Hatt. Because i don't like fish.
  • Michael Brandon: That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to go to the fishing village while Thomas is being repaired.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Any Volunteers?
  • Arthur: Me!
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur blurted out.
  • Arthur: And please sir may I run on that line all the time? Thomas doesn't like fish but I do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then the line is yours.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Arthur was delighted. The next morning he puffed into the fishing village right on time. The smell of fish was everywhere. But he was sure he had the most beautiful line on the Island of Sodor.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Search For Fergus)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Fergus the Traction Engine are friends. Fergus is the pride of the cement works. Fergus knows all the rules and obeys them. One day, Sir Topham Hatt brought Devious Diesel to the cement works.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need Diesel to help for a while. Fergus please show him around.
  • Fergus: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus unhappily. He knew that Diesel could be trouble. Later, Diesel was being careless.
  • Fergus: Not like that!
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Fergus.
  • Fergus: Do it right.
  • Diesel: Don't interfere.
  • Michael Brandon: Sneered Diesel.
  • Fergus: You don't know the rules!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Fergus. Diesel was very annoyed with Fergus and started plotting a devious plan. Later that day, he pretended to have news for Fergus.
  • Diesel: Sir Topham Hatt wants you to work at the smelters.
  • Fergus: Me? But I'm the pride of the cement works.
  • Diesel: Not anymore. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm better than you. So I'm going to stay here.
  • Fergus: It's not fair. I love working here.
  • Michael Brandon: But he knew that really useful engines have to do as they are told.
  • Diesel: (laughs maniacally)
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver arrived at the smelters.
  • Fergus: I wanna go back to the cement works.
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed Fergus.
  • Fergus: None of the other engines like coming here it's so scary.
  • Fergus' Driver: You're right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Just then, the scrap diesels arrived.
  • Arry and Bert: Hello, are you happy to be here?
  • Fergus: No!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Fergus. His driver was scared too.
  • Fergus' Driver: Come on, Fergus, we're going to escape.
  • Michael Brandon: And for the first time, Fergus broke the rules. Sir Topham Hatt was enjoying a tasty fish supper when he heard that Fergus was missing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's not like Fergus. There must be something wrong. I will send Thomas to look for him.
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver turn onto an unused track to find a place to hide. Fergus was frightened, so was Thomas. He puffed up and down the line. He couldn't see Fergus anywhere.
  • Thomas' Driver: We could search the old mine track.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: That line is dark and spooky.
  • Michael Brandon: Whispered Thomas. But he had to be brave and find Fergus. Fergus was on a siding. His fire had gone out. Then, he heard a sound.
  • Fergus: It's an engine!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: Fergus.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Whatever are you doing out here?
  • Fergus: Hiding. Don't wanna work at the smelters. Sir Topham Hatt is going to be cross with me.
  • Thomas: He's not.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's worried about you.
  • Fergus: Really?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Fergus felt better. Thomas pulled Fergus all the way to the smelters yard where he knew Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Fergus, explain yourself.
  • Fergus: I ran away. It's scary here.
  • Thomas: Diesel told Fergus that he wanted him at the smelters forever.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense, Fergus, you are the pride of the cement works. I shall send Diesel to the smelters and you can go back to the cement works tomorrow.
  • Fergus: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus happily. Fergus knew he had a good friend in Thomas and he was still the pride of the cement works.
