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: It's Thomas: number one engine who works with Sir Topham Hatt. Percy is very happy and he is really reliable. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most famous engine on the Island of Sodor. Here's Henry: the number three green engine. Edward always here to help the other engines. Toby is a different engine. He's a tram engine. And don't forget Sir Topham Hatt. He's in charge of the whole railway.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Old Iron)
  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again. After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigent.
  • Percy: Old iron!? Slow!?
  • Thomas: Why, Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward. Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.

  • Children: (singing) Thomas first saw Terence the Tractor plowing in a field one day and he said, "My oh my, you do look funny. Where are your wheels, are your wheels, are your wheels? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Terence the Tractor "I don't have wheels like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Thomas got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Terence the Tractor Now Thomas understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover. Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be. Don't judge a book by its cover Just remember the rule Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book.... By its cover!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Special Funnel)
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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 repair the damage immediately.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: Peter Sam's new funnel had special pipes which made puffing much easier.
  • Peter Sam: I feel stronger than ever before.
  • George Carlin: 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.
  • George Carlin: The engines don't laugh at Peter Sam's funnel now. They wished they had one like it.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Gone Fishing)
  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Daisy)
  • George Carlin: Percy and Toby were worried. Thomas' recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Sir Topham Hatt was waiting with them with important news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Here is Daisy the Diesel Rail-car, who has come to help while Thomas is...indisposed.
  • Percy: Please, sir, will she go when Thomas comes back, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That depends.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Toby: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was not easy to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Daisy: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • George Carlin: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Daisy: This is better.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • George Carlin: The rubbish turned out to be Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta who were most offended.
  • Annie: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • George Carlin: They fumed. Percy and Toby had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.
  • (Percy and Toby take Annie, Clarabel and Henrietta away)
  • George Carlin: The engines woke next morning feeling exhausted. Daisy, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Daisy: Oooh! Oooh!
  • George Carlin: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Daisy: Look at me.
  • George Carlin: She purred to the passengers.
  • Daisy: I'm the latest diesel, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Thomas' bumpy old Annie and Clarabel now.
  • George Carlin: The passengers waited for Daisy to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indignant.
  • Daisy: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Daisy's Driver: Surely.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Daisy: I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: Percy can do it. He loves messing about with freight cars.
  • George Carlin: She began to shudder violently.
  • Daisy's Driver: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • George Carlin: Daisy lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Daisy: Told you.
  • George Carlin: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Daisy: It's fitter's orders.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Daisy: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exams me carefully. Daisy, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • George Carlin: Finished Daisy.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • George Carlin: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Sir Topham Hatt send us such a feeble...
  • Daisy: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Daisy.
  • Daisy: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • George Carlin: So they uncoupled the van, and Daisy purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Daisy: That's a good story.
  • George Carlin: She chuckled.
  • Daisy: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • George Carlin: But she said it to herself.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining)
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Life is full of surprises, full of ups and downs And so to have a silver lining, first there must be cloud. Bill and Ben the twins work together all day long. They sometimes disagree how things are done. They get down in the dumps If things they do don't work out just as planned. But if at first you don't succeed then understand. There's no sense in worrying if things start going wrong. Obstacles can all be overcome. But even Bill and Ben both agree that in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. So if you've got a job to do, make sure you do it well. Arguing will get you nowhere fast. When Bill says "Push", and Ben says "Pull", They always get it wrong. But never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. Everybody makes mistakes it happens all the time. You should never lose sight of your goal. Just like Bill and Ben things will work out in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. When you're feeling down it doesn't help to wear a frown. Never lose hope, you're sure to cope and you can carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined to help you on your way. As long as there's hope, it'll help you cope. You must never lose hope, it'll help you on the way.
