  • Ed: Mr. Conductor, you're here.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yes, Ed, i'm here for a big popular competition.
  • Amy: Did engines go off the rails?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Of course, Amy, like the time Gordon slid into a dirty ditch.
  • Cassie: Can you tell me this story?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sure, Cassie.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Gordon Takes A Dip starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Gordon: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid engine, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Henry: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, lazybones!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Whistled Henry.
  • Gordon: What cheek!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Spluttered Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Henry is too big for his wheels. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Percy: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Percy innocently.
  • Gordon: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any engine. But to come off the rails like Henry did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Then it was Henry's turn to take the express. Gordon watch him getting ready.
  • Gordon: Be careful, Henry. You're not pulling the flying kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Henry went off in a huff, and Gordon yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Gordon.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Gordon: Is it coaches or freight cars?
  • Driver: Cars.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Gordon: Cars.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Puh-huh.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon's fire was slow to start, so Edward had to push Gordon to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Gordon: I won't go, I won't go!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Puffed Edward. At last, Gordon was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Gordon was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Gordon: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Gordon: Oosh!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He hissed.
  • Gordon: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great engine. Don't you understand that?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They telephoned Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: So Gordon didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Edward to take it please. And Gordon? Leave him where his is. We'll get him out later.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Oh, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Gordon fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Gordon fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon layed in the ditch all day.
  • Gordon: Oh, dear.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He thought.
  • Gordon: I shall never get out.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: But that evening, they lifted Gordon and made a rope of sleepers under his wheels to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and James and Henry pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Gordon crawled home, a sadder and wiser engine.

  • Mr. Conductor 1: See, Breathe Carolina's the best.

  • Ed: Sure.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Well, Ed, i'll tell you.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and James Goes Buzz Buzz starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Trevor the Traction Engine was enjoying his work in Vicorage Orchard. Birds were singing and apples were brightening on the trees. It was a lovely day.
  • James: Hello Trevor.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said James.
  • James: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Trevor: Oh i am.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Replied Trevor.
  • James: What's that noise?
  • Trevor: It's the bees.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed Trevor.
  • Trevor: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Just then, BoCo the diesel engine hummed in.
  • BoCo: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: James didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • BoCo: Goodbye, Trevor.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Called BoCo and set off to see Duck at the next station. Bill and Ben the tank engine twins were busy arranging cars. But they scampered off when they saw BoCo.
  • BoCo: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed BoCo.
  • BoCo: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Edward soon put a stop in their games.
  • Duck: Edward is the only one who can keep Bill and Ben in order.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Chuckled Duck.
  • Duck: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • BoCo: A good name.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Replied BoCo.
  • BoCo: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: James bustled in.
  • James: What's that, Duck? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Duck: His name is BoCo, and he didn't. We...
  • James: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Duck: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Retorted Duck. The next morning, James arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. James heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to James. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • James: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Hissed James. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The bee thought James had burnt him on purpose. So it stung James right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • James: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Whistled James. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to James' warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, James.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: James' reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for James. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, James.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Later that evening, James was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you James the Red-Nosed Engine.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Everyone laughed even James. But instead, they decided to call James "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.
  • (James Goes Buzz Buzz ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: You know, James had been stung by a bee, but it can be nice.
  • Amy: Well, Cassie's going to leave.
  • Mel: You too, Mr. Conductor 1.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thanks a lot.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 disappears)
  • Cassie: Bye, Mel, i'll see you on December 9.
  • Mel: Take care, Cassie.
  • Eddy: Well, i think it's time for another relaxation.
  • Ed: You said it.
  • Stacy: You know what they say.
  • Harry and Billy: Being friends.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 reappears)
