  • (Mr. Conductor 2 blows his whistle and Lady Hatt's Birthday Party starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: One summer's day, Thomas and Percy were idling at the station when Bertie the Bus arrived.
  • Bertie: Have you notice something?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Bertie.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • Bertie: Sir Topham Hatt. He, well, seems different.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Replied Bertie.
  • Percy: I did see him staring at the clouds this morning.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I wonder why.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: The reason was simple. It was Lady Hatt's Birthday, and Sir Topham Hatt had a new outfit.
  • Lady Hatt: It's perfect for my birthday party.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said his wife.
  • Lady Hatt: You look splendid, Topham dear.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And I'll wear my finest hat just for you.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He replied.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your birthday is a great occasion.
  • Lady Hatt: It is, so don't be late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry, my dear. I shall be spic and span and right on time.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Later the day, Sir Topham Hatt had changed into his new suit.
  • Stationmaster: You look fine, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: You best be going.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Indeed.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Agreed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The engines are busy, I'll take the car.
  • Stationmaster: Is it reliable?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Asked the stationmaster.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Certainly.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Sir Topham Hatt. But it wasn't. As he sped along, he suddenly saw a large hole on the road. He break hard, but it was too late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother! Now I got a puncher. If I change my wheel, I am sure to dirty my suit and that would never do.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Just then, he heard Caroline.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need you to attend my wife's birthday party and I cannot be late. Please give me a lift.
  • Caroline: I'll try, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: But Caroline didn't like going fast.
  • Caroline: I'm hot! My engine will overheat!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: And it did.
  • Caroline: Told you so.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Caroline sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother, bother!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Then he heard a loud whistle. It was George the Steamroller. George was cross when he saw Caroline.
  • George: Call yourself a car? You're disgrace for the road. Find yourself a scrapyard.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Caroline spluttered in fury. George's driver was more polite.
  • Driver: Can I be your assistance, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Only if you can take me to my wife's birthday party.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sighed Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Driver: We can take you to Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Replied the Driver.
  • Driver: He's just down the line.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Much applodge.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Then they rumbled away.
  • Caroline: What about me?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Wailed Caroline.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'll send for help.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Called Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Stay there.
  • Caroline: That's all I can do.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: George was enjoying rolling along the lane, but not Sir Topham Hatt. Oil splashed everywhere. Worse was to follow.
  • George: Help!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Cried George.
  • George: Something snapped!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He veered out of control and Sir Topham Hatt landed into a muddy ditch close to where Thomas was taking on water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother, bother!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Thomas had never seen Sir Topham Hatt in such a mess.
  • Driver: Can I help you, sir?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Asked Thomas' driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes please. Get me to the station as fast as you can.
  • Driver: I'm afraid our fireman's taking ill.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then I'll be your fireman.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sighed Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas was excited. Sir Topham Hatt had to work hard. Coal dust and smuck flew everywhere. At last, they reached the station. Sir Topham Hatt looked at the clock.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Just in time.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He gasped. He hurried picked up a huge bunch of flowers.
  • Thomas: Good luck!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Called Thomas. Sir Topham Hatt's wife was waiting for him. As the clock struck three, there stood Sir Topham Hatt, tired but triumph, he gave his wife the flowers.
  • Lady Hatt: Well, thank you, my dear. I noticed it was my special birthday party, but I didn't know it was fancy dress.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Everyone laughed, and then the party began.
  • (Lady Hatt's Birthday Party ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: So that's why Sir Topham Hatt got to his wife's birthday.

I've got a friend who lives with his mom and dad, With his brother and his sister, too. They've got a cat and a dog and a pet bullfrog And I'm really glad they do.

He arrived unexpected and quite uninvited straight through the dining room wall.
  • Boy: My goodness! Said the controller. Why didn't you knock at the door?

He's the head of the railway there is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. He's so proud of his engines each and everyone. And though he's strict and meticulous, favorites he has none. If ever there is trouble, you know who will be there.
  • Girl: If there's ever a crash a smash or a muddle, he's there on the double, no trouble.
  • Children: (singing) Cause it's the fat controller's railway. When Henry stayed in the tunnel, everyone tried to push. But Sir Topham Hatt would have none of that.
  • Boy: My doctor has forbidden me to push.
  • Children: (singing) And one day the wind blew his hat off.
  • Girl: A goat in the field saw his chance.
  • Children: (singing) He just picked up the hat, said thank you for that and ate it up for lunch. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. The fat controller's railway. Sir Top-ham Hatt.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: So that's why Sir Topham Hatt's the head of the Island of Sodor.
  • Ash: Wow, that's awesome.
  • Kevin: I'm totally glad about families.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Oh yes.
  • Serena: I've been figuring this out.
  • Sakura: Does Sir Topham Hatt need a vacation?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Indeed, Sakura. He took a long vacation. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 2 blows his whistle and Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 2: One day, Sir Topham Hatt arranged with Thomas the Tank Engine to take his wife and grandchildren to the seaside. The sun shone and everywhere looked splendid. But, Lady Hatt was feeling hot and tired. She took her troubles out on Annie and Clarabel.
  • Lady Hatt: Those coaches are old and uncomfortable. Why don't you use them as beach hogs instead?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Thomas was most upset.
  • Thomas: You don't let them turn Annie and Clarabel into beach hogs, will you?
  • Driver: Of course not, Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: But I must admit they could be smarten up.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: The next day, Sir Topham Hatt used Percy to take his family to Harold's airfield. They were just about to board Harold when it happened.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ooh, what was that?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Cried Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Harold: Uh, it's Tiger Moth.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Grumbled Harold.
  • Harold: It's rude and flies much too low.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So i can see. Please take us up Harold before there's another disturbance.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: A few days later, Harold arrived at their holiday home with bad news.
  • Harold's Pilot: Uh, It's Tiger Moth.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Harold's Pilot.
  • Harold's Pilot: It's gone missing. Do you wish to join the search party with us?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I think i better. There's Tiger Moth.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Called Sir Topham Hatt. Then he spoke to the pilot.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are showing off and flying dangerously. I will speak to your controller and request that you are grounded.
  • Pilot: Yes, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Replied the pilot.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now if you'll excuse me, I shall return to my holiday.
  • Pilot: Jolly good idea, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sir Topham Hatt arranged to meet up with Toby and Henrietta to take them somewhere special. They arrived at a small river inland.
  • Stephen and Bridget: What a beautiful boat!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Exclaimed the children.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's my special treat.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Sir Topham Hatt took the helm with his wife beside him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's so nice to be away from the railway for once.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: He said to her.
  • Lady Hatt: And far cleaner.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: She replied. But life on the river is very different from that on the rails. The family were enjoying themselves so much that they forgot to watch where they were going.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Oh, botheration!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We're stuck!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: And they were. Other boats try to pull them off the mudbank, but it was no use. Percy saw the commotion and stopped.
  • Driver: Is there anything we can do to help?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Called his driver.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Yes, indeed there is. This is the life, isn't it, my dear?
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Soon, they arrived at a small station. There was Thomas with Annie and Clarabel who were looking as smart as their new paint inside and out.
  • Lady Hatt: My!
  • Mr. Conductor 2: Exclaimed Lady Hatt.
  • Lady Hatt: What splendid coaches. So much suitable for those beach hogs on wheels.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: No one said a word. But that evening, Annie and Clarabel spoke to Thomas.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It's very nice to get compliments, but no matter what we look like we're always be useful, won't we, Thomas?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: They're friend replied.
  • (Sir Topham Hatt's Holiday ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 2:
