Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin Percy Takes The Plunge)
  • George Carlin: One day, Henry wanted a rest, but Percy was talking to some engines. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Thomas.
  • Percy: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bill: Oh, Percy, you are brave.
  • Percy: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to an engine with determination.
  • Ben: Tell us more, Percy.
  • Henry: What are you engines doing here?
  • George Carlin: Hissed Henry.
  • Henry: This shed is for Sir Topham Hatt's engines. Go away. Silly things.
  • George Carlin: Henry snorted.
  • Percy: They're not silly.
  • George Carlin: Percy had been enjoying himself.
  • Henry: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to an engine with determination. Huh.
  • Percy: Anyway.
  • George Carlin: Said cheeky Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • George Carlin: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Percy: Once an engine attached to a train, was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Henry: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Henry. Thomas was looking at the board on the key.
  • Thomas: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Thomas: That's orders.
  • Percy: Why?
  • Thomas: Danger means falling down something.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Percy: I can't see a mine.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Percy: Stupid board.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the cars.
  • Percy: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • George Carlin: The cars had never asked to bump an engine before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Percy: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Percy.
  • Cars: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the cars. Percy thought they were helping.
  • Percy: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the cars will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • George Carlin: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars.
  • Cars: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled, and bumped Percy's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Percy: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Said Percy, sliding pass the board. Percy was frantic.
  • Percy: That's enough!
  • (Percy falls into the water)
  • George Carlin: Percy was sunked.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are a very disobeident engine.
  • George Carlin: Percy knew that voice.
  • Percy: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No, Percy, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Percy: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Percy. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself.
  • (Percy is lifted onto a flatbed)
  • George Carlin: Next day, he was sent to the works on Henry's freight train.
  • Henry: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Henry.
  • Henry: Did you like the water?
  • Percy: No.
  • Henry: I am surprised. You need more determination, Percy. Water's nothing to an engine with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • George Carlin: Percy is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Salty)
  • Men: (singing) There's a dockside Diesel we know well, who can spin a yarn, who can tell a tale, he loves the sea and the ships that sail, Salty is his name. He works so hard, he's very very proud, his friends all love him being around, when the sun goes down they'll gather round, for a tale or a song of the sea.
  • Children: (singing) On with the sailor's song, follow on, Salty's song, follow the leader home, follow the leader home. Salty, tell us another one, Salty, spin us another one, Salty, one more story will do, Salty, oh Salty, we'll always follow you.
  • Men: (singing) Everyone knows the troublesome trucks, push their luck, get the engines stuck. But someone knows just what to do, Salty is his name. When he rolls along, he hums his song, a pretty little song, let me tag along. And his rhythm makes them follow on, homeward bound we go.
  • Children: (singing) On with the sailor's song, follow on, Salty's song, follow the leader home, follow the leader home. Salty, sing us another one, Salty, spin us another one, Salty, one more story will do, Salty, oh Salty, We'll always follow you, Salty, tell us another one, Salty, spin us another one, Salty, tell us another one do, Salty, oh Salty, we'll always follow you, we'll always follow you, we'll always follow you.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Dunkin' Duncan)
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey chugged cheerfully through the Sodor countryside. The engines were going to help Duncan with an important job at the incline railway. The engines enjoyed working at the incline railway. They like the way the loaded slate cars rolled down the incline pulling the empty slate cars up. But they are always careful. Duncan doesn't like working at the incline railway. He is always impatient to get back at the junction. This makes him careless and gets him in a lot of trouble. Rusty hoped Duncan would stay out of trouble today, but he was already in too much of a hurry.
  • Duncan: I'm a plain speaking engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gruffed Duncan.
  • Duncan: So collect your slate cars and be quick about it.
  • Alec Baldwin: And off he steamed.
  • Rheneas: Bossy boots.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Skarloey: Pushy puffer.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Skarloey. They didn't like Duncan telling them what to do.
  • Rusty: He just wants to get back to the bustle of the junction.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty said. Duncan wanted everyone to work faster.
  • Duncan: You're supposed to be helping me.
  • Alec Baldwin: He grumbled.
  • Duncan: But you're as slow as snails.
  • Rusty: We're proper engines.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty huffed crossly.
  • Rusty: We followed the rules.
  • Rheneas: We can't send up more than four slate cars at a time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Duncan: Then work faster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan impatiently. Later that day, Duncan was working at the incline.
  • Duncan: I'll show you how fast a really useful engine can work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan called as he hastily biffed one slate car into another and then another. Soon, Duncan had his four slate cars.
  • Duncan: Nothing to it!
  • Alec Baldwin: He boasted to Rusty.
  • Rusty: Those slate cars will pay you back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Warned Rusty.
  • Rusty: Slate cars don't like to be biffed.
  • Duncan: I can handle slate cars.
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried. The three little engines could see Duncan was not going to listen. They carefully chuffed away from the incline with their slate cars full of slate. Duncan was so impatient he became even more careless.
  • Duncan: I'll show that smelly diesel and those lazy steamers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: Careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cautioned his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: You're asking for trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he got it. Duncan didn't notice his chain was tangled in the coupling of the slate car in front of him. Suddenly, he was being pulled up the track by the empty slate cars.
  • Duncan: Bouncing bogies!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Duncan: It's got me!
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan's driver jumped clear. Rusty returned to see Duncan being pulled up the incline.
  • Rusty: I tried to warn him.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Rusty.
  • Rusty's Driver: He never listens.
  • Alec Baldwin: The little diesel's driver said. The chain pulling Duncan's slate cars couldn't hold the weight. It suddenly snapped. Duncan plummeted down the incline.
  • Duncan: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: He yelled.
  • (Duncan
  • Duncan: Glub, glub, glub.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Duncan: Bluggle my bloiler.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan felt foolish and very wet. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived, he spoke severly to Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have not been a responsible engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your impatience has caused confusion and delay and you owe these engines in apology.
  • Duncan: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan said to Rusty, Rheneas and Skarloey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Once you have been repaired.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will work at the incline until you learned to be patient and careful.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duncan.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Troublesome Trucks)
  • Children: (singing) The engines always think they are so clever, And so they like to bump the trucks around, They bump them in the sidings, they bump the in the yards. They better beware, they better take care, They better be on their guards. Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game, Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. Diesel thinks he is so very smart, Bumping all the trucks around the yard. He gets them all in line, then bumps them one more time, Now, he thinks that he's in charge. The trucks decide to play another joke, And Diesel's plans will all go up in smoke. He pulls and he pulls until he breaks the chain. On, on, on! He's off the rails again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. The engines all try hard to make this stand, Looking for a way to foil their plans. Nothing seems to work. It's just makes matters worse. Trucks are always on the hand. They find their time until they get their chance when noone is expecting it they pounce. They push and they push until it's all too late. On, on, on! The trucks have won again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Spotless Record)
  • Michael Brandon: A brand new tank engine was racing across the Island of Sodor. He was very excited and he didn't want to be late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Right on time.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Thomas and Percy looked at the big tank engine. He was very impressive.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This is Arthur.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: He's here to shunt freight cars and pull freight.
  • Arthur: Nice to meet you.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur puffed politely.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And he's got a spotless record.
  • Percy: What's a spotless record?
  • Michael Brandon: Whispered Percy.
  • Thomas: It means he's never been naughty or made a mess.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Thomas. The three engines were soon at work. Thomas and Percy were bumping freight cars. They knew this was naughty but they were having fun.
  • Thomas: Join in, Arthur.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Arthur: No thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheesed the new engine. He'd never been naughty before. Arthur's first job was to push the train load of fruit to market. The troublesome trucks started to sing.
  • Trucks: Root, toot, toot, we want to go, the fruit's going off cause you're too slow!
  • Arthur: How rude.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Arthur. This gave Thomas a naughty idea.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt doesn't like the troublesome trucks singing.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You must stop them.
  • Arthur: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Arthur.
  • Arthur: I will.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur was glad he could keep the troublesome trucks in order.
  • Thomas: They'll never stop the trucks from singing.
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed Thomas. Arthur chuffed cheerfully through the countryside. Soon the troublesome trucks started singing again.
  • Trucks: Chat, chat, chat, you're tough enough, but you're so rusty, you can even puff!
  • Arthur: Stop singing!
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Arthur.
  • Arthur: Trucks should do as they are telling.
  • Michael Brandon: The Troublesome Trucks were cross. If they can't sing, they will teach Arthur a lesson instead.
  • Trucks: We'll show him!
  • Michael Brandon: The trucks giggled.
  • Trucks: You can't push us around!
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur struggled over bridges and he huffed and puffed through tunnels. He came over the top of a big hill.
  • Trucks: You can't catch us!
  • Michael Brandon: Laughed the Troublesome Trucks.
  • Trucks: Whee-hee-hee!
  • Michael Brandon: But there was trouble ahead. Duck had stopped in the crossing at the bottom of the hill. Arthur's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late!
  • (Arthur
  • Michael Brandon: Squash fruit flew everywhere! Arthur was upset. His spotless record was ruined.
  • Thomas: Oh, Arthur, what a mess!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Sir Topham Hatt was very annyoed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What happened here?
  • Arthur: The troublesome trucks were singing. I told them to stop but they made me go too fast.
  • Thomas: Please, sir, it's my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas told Sir Topham Hatt what he had done.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Arthur, it's um... fruitless for me to say more. Ahem. But Thomas, you must clear this mess.
  • Michael Brandon: Harvey arrived the breakdown crane. He could see there's a lot of work to be done. Everyone worked hard and Thomas took the loaded trucks away. That evening, Arthur was having his squashed fruit cleaned out of his funnel.
  • Arthur: Hello, Thomas.
  • Thomas: Arthur, I'm sorry I played a trick on you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Arthur: Thanks for owning up to it.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Arthur.
  • Thomas: Maybe spotless records are meant to be broken.
  • Michael Brandon: Smiled Thomas.
  • Arthur: And then mended again.
  • Michael Brandon: Finished Arthur.
  • Arthur: Just like friendships.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Whistle Song)
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Children: (singing) Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo. Engines all have whistles, as everybody knows. And as they leave the station, you hear the whistle blow. Speeding down the hillside, the whistles blown with pride, Driver checks the signal, and whistles one more time. Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell. Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well, Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun! Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song! Every whistle's different; No two will sound the same, It helps to warn off danger if something's in your way. Whistles are important as every engine knows, Clear the line ahead now when the whistle blows! Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, James and Edward, Percy as well. Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun, Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song An engine lost its whistle and could not make a sound. It really was a problem until one could be found. 'Cause an engine's not an engine if it hasn't got a whistle, Hear the whistle blows! Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, Gordon and Henry, Thomas as well. Engines, blow your whistles and let's all have some fun, Engines, blow your whistles; Let's hear the whistle song.
  • Girl: One long whistle means coming up fast.
  • Boy: Two in the fog, give two short blasts.
  • Girl: One, two, three, means clear up the line.
  • Children: Let's blow our whistles one more time! (singing) Engines, blow your whistles; Toby, ring your bell, James and Edward, Percy as well. Engines blow your whistles, and let's all have some fun, Engines blow your whistles, Let's hear the whistle song!
  • (Whistle blowing)
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
