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 Percy's Promise)
  • George Carlin: Every summer, the Island of Sodor was very busy. Holiday makers love the sight see. When the weather is fine, there's no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains. Others like the valleys. Children love the seaside. One morning, Thomas was puffing along the line that runs by the coast. His two coaches Annie and Clarabel were packed with children going to the beach. Everyone was happy. Percy was taking some freight cars at the Harbour.
  • Percy: Hello, Thomas. You look cheerful. I wish I can take children today instead of freight cars.
  • Thomas: They're in the vicar's Sunday school.
  • George Carlin: Explained Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home.
  • Percy: Of course I will.
  • George Carlin: Promised Percy. Later, Percy saw Harold.
  • Harold: Sorry, Percy. Can't talk. I'm on high alert.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Harold: Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Might how you go, Percy.
  • Percy: Huh.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: As long I got rails to run on, I can go anywhere and any weather anyhow. Goodbye.
  • Edward: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Edward.
  • Edward: There's a storm coming.
  • Percy: A promise is a promise.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: No matter what the weather.
  • George Carlin: The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead. Annie and Clarabel were glad when Percy arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: He shivered and thought of his nice dry shed. Percy struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside. The river was rising fast.
  • Percy: I wish I could see, I wish I could see!
  • George Carlin: Complained Percy as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead.
  • (Percy falls into the water and inside him, the fire gets sloshed)
  • Percy: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Percy.
  • Percy: The water's sloshing my fire!
  • George Carlin: Percy's driver and fireman had to find some more firewood.
  • Fireman: I'll have some of your floor boards, please.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman to the conductor.
  • Conductor: I only swept the floor this morning.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the conductor and he still help. Soon, Percy's fire was burning well. He felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Harold.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Percy.
  • Percy: Harold's coming to laugh at me.
  • George Carlin: Something floated onto Percy's boiler.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: He needed throw things.
  • Driver: It's a parachute!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: Harold's dropping hot drinks from us.
  • Percy: Thank you, Harold.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Harold: Good to be at service.
  • George Carlin: Replied Harold as buzzed away. The water lapped Percy's wheels. Percy was losing steam again, but he plunged bravely on.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Percy: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He meant one more big effort, and at last exhausted by triumph, he brought the train home.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Thomas.
  • Thomas: You kept your promise, despite everything!
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived in Harold. First, he thanked the men, then Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Harold told me you are a wizard. He said he can beat you at somethings, but not a been on submarine. I don't know what you get onto sometimes, but I do know that you're a really useful engine.
  • Percy: Oh sir.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Percy happily.
  • (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. Cause the Fat Controller, he told him so. Now he's got a branch line to call his very own. 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. Little blue train, he's always there whenever you need a hand. If you need help with a situation who comes into mind. 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 Rusty To The Rescue)
  • George Carlin: In springtime, Rusty loves to visit a faraway place. It's filled with bluebells. The air smells sweet and Rusty thinks there's no better place than be. One day, Thomas was passing by just as Rusty was having a drink.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep! Good morning. Your driver looks a little worried. I wonder why.
  • Rusty: I don't know.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: But I soon will. Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: But there's something wrong?
  • Rusty's Driver: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Rusty's Driver: They need another engine to help us run the special line.
  • Rusty: A bluebell engine.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Rusty.
  • Rusty: Maybe I can find one.
  • George Carlin: Later, Rusty saw Douglas and Percy. Rusty had an idea.
  • Rusty: Can you help me find another engine?
  • Douglas: Where?
  • Rusty: Where'd you found Oliver?
  • Douglas: You mean on the Other Railway?
  • Rusty: Yes. I'm looking for a bluebell engine.
  • George Carlin: And Rusty explained everything.
  • Douglas: I like to help. But these days it's only Diesels that go there.
  • George Carlin: Then Rusty decided.
  • Rusty: So that's were I go.
  • Douglas: Take care.
  • George Carlin: Rusty told the driver all about the plan and that night he came to the shed.
  • Rusty's Driver: The manager says he'll make a home for a bluebell engine if you find one.
  • Rusty: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: We'll find one tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: It took them all the next day to travel to the Other Railway. Darkness fell and the cold wind blew.
  • Rusty: Ooh. What's that?
  • George Carlin: But it was only the sounds of a lonely scrapyard. Diesel silent and still lined up guard.
  • Diesels: Who are you?
  • George Carlin: Rusty plucked up courage.
  • Rusty: I'm a shed and sidings inspection diesel. Have you any engines in the shed?
  • Diesels: No! None!
  • George Carlin: Rusty rally began.
  • Rusty: Then what about the sidings?
  • Diesels: One. We have one.
  • George Carlin: Rusty grew braver still.
  • Rusty: Then I'll just go and inspect.
  • George Carlin: A small engine with a tall funnel stood sad and alone in a shadowy siding. His driver was huddled in the cab, keeping it company.
  • Rusty: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty: Do you like bluebells?
  • George Carlin: The engine looks dawdled.
  • Stepney: Yes, bluebells are beautiful.
  • Rusty: Then you're soon going to see lots of them because I'm getting you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Everyone worked fast. It was difficult to set the fire, but soon it was glowing hot and Stepney had a good head of steam. Rusty's engineer agreed to be Stepney's fireman. So off they set, past the bleak and bluey lines of diesels.
  • Diesels: Where is he going?
  • George Carlin: They hissed.
  • Rusty: Just down the line.
  • George Carlin: Replied Rusty, and they chuffered quickly away.
  • Rusty: We've done it.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Rusty.
  • Rusty: We're over the board and back in our own railway. Mission accomplished.
  • George Carlin: When Rusty and the engine arrived in the valley, a big welcome awaited him.
  • Manager: We shall mend you and give you your new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: Said the manager. His driver was delighted.
  • Stepney's Driver: You lucky old engine. You've been saved by the bluebell railway.
  • Stepney: And my friend Rusty. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Rusty.
  • George Carlin: Now the little engine is has happy as can be and helps the passengers and visit at bluebell time. His name is Stepney but everyone calls him the bluebell engine.
  • (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.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Henry's Forest)
  • George Carlin: Henry the Green Engine has lived on the Island of Sodor for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He liked every part of it from the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Henry always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too.
  • Henry's Driver: Come on, Henry.
  • George Carlin: He would sometimes say.
  • Henry's Driver: We made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest.
  • George Carlin: Henry loved it here. The forest was filled with broad oaks and tall pines. Henry could remember the day long ago when he and Toby brought some new trees to be planted and Terence and Trevor helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others. Henry always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why but his driver understood.
  • Henry's Driver: It's peaceful.
  • George Carlin: He said to Henry. But one night, everything changed. The engines were resting in the shed.
  • Thomas: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Can you hear a strange whistling sound?
  • Toby: It's the wind blowing outside our shed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby.
  • Toby: But I never heard of like this before.
  • James: Do you know.
  • George Carlin: Added James.
  • James: If Gordon wasn't here now, I say it was him thundering by with the express.
  • George Carlin: All the engines laughed, except Henry.
  • Henry: I hope the wind won't harm the forest.
  • George Carlin: By morning, the fierce winds have gone but the damage was done. Henry's driver came to see him in the yard.
  • Henry's Driver: Trees have fallen on the line.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Henry's Driver: We must help clear the tracks.
  • George Carlin: Donald set off with the breakdown train and Henry followed. Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Henry felt sad.
  • Henry: What will happen to all the animals who lived here?
  • George Carlin: He thought. When Henry's flat cars were full of logs, he took them to the timbermill where they will be turned to furniture and other things. Henry was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was sorry to lose part of his forest.
  • Toby: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Toby to Thomas.
  • Toby: I wish there was something we can do to make things better again.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: But what? We can't mend broken trees.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Toby.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You do look glum.
  • Toby: I'm sad about the trees.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Toby: And so is Henry. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it was gone.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll soon put that right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have an important job for you, Toby. I will like you to take some freight cars to the forest.
  • George Carlin: When the freight cars arrived, Toby was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees already for plating.
  • Toby: This is the best job I've ever had.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby happily. When Henry returned, he was most surprised. There were Terence and Trevor busily helping the workmen clear the torrents stumps and branches.
  • Terence: Look, Henry.
  • George Carlin: Called Terence.
  • Terence: We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see.
  • George Carlin: Now whenever Henry stops by the forest, he could see the new trees growing strong and tall. Sometimes, everywhere was very quiet, and the other times, Henry could hear leaves rustling, or birds wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sounds of children laughing, and always he is happy here.
