Transcript

  • (We see the Britt Allcroft logo, then the Season 5 intro, and finally the start of Put Upon Percy)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy puffed grumpily into the yards. He was feeling put upon and said so.
  • Percy: I feel put upon.
  • Alec Baldwin: He complained to Thomas. Thomas was confused.
  • Thomas: Put upon what? The rails?
  • Percy: No, put upon with work. Driver says he is too.
  • Thomas: Put upon. What a silly saying.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas. But Annie and Clarabel liked it and they sang about it, too.
  • Annie and Clarabel: (singing) Percy's been put upon, put upon, put upon. Percy's been put upon, poor old Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy is being put upon.
  • Percy: I am, i am, i am.
  • Alec Baldwin: He collected metal from the foundry, coal from the yards, flour from the mills, rock from the quarries and fuel from the depot. Then he delivered it all to the docks. Next he collected some empty freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: Who's this dirty little engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: We want Thomas or Duck.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy ignored them.
  • Percy: Put upon, put upon. That's what i am.
  • Alec Baldwin: That night all the engines laughed at him.
  • Thomas: We can see what's put upon you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy you done a good day's work. Now get a good night's rest.
  • Percy: Yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, he took some freight cars to the coal yards. Then he had to push some empty freight cars to the mine shaft. When he arrived, there was trouble. The foreman spoke to his driver.
  • Foreman: The freight cars are stuck in the mechanism. All they need is a good push.
  • Percy's Driver: We'll do it right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy shunted back to were a large canvas barrier was used to protect his line from loose rocks. Percy charged into the line of freight cars too fast and too hard.
  • Percy: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Percy. The freight cars broke free, but ran out of control to the mines below.
  • Freight Cars: On, on, faster, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: The silly freight cars yelled. Then there was trouble again.
  • (The freight cars hit the pole and we hear a siren and the mine rumbling)
  • Miner: Get out of here fast! The mine's collapsing!
  • Percy's Driver: We'll just have to make a run for it, Percy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver.
  • Percy: There's going to be an avalanche!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. And he was right. Worse still, the track he was on began to crumble.
  • Percy: Oh, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy. Then he remembered something he had seen earlier.
  • Percy: There's the canvas barrier by the track. That might save us.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were just in time.
  • (The avalanche starts to bury Percy completely)
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was right. The canvas did indeed save them, but the miners didn't know that.
  • Foreman: The avalanche has buried an engine and its crew.
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted the foreman.
  • Foreman: We must help them.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Percy had been rescued, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to his driver and fireman then to Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Driver told me how brave you were, Percy. As a reward you will be repainted at the works.
  • Percy: Oh thank you, Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When he returned, Percy's coat glistened in the sun.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I teased you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You were certainly put upon by that avalanche.
  • Percy: Yes indeed. But just look at my new coat of paint. Now I don't mind that being put upon me.
  • (Gone Fishing then starts after the story)
  • 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!
  • (Following the commercial breaks, Peter Sam and The Refreshment Lady is the next to start)
  • George Carlin: Sir Handel had been naughty, so Sir Topham Hatt made him stay in the shed for a while. Peter Sam was now busier than ever. He had to do Sir Handel's work as well as his own. He was very excited, and the fireman found him hard to handle.
  • Sir Handel: (grunts) Anyone would think that he wanted to work.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Handel who was lonely and bored.
  • Skarloey: All respectable engines do.
  • George Carlin: Replied Skarloey.
  • Skarloey: Keep calm, Peter Sam, and you do well.
  • George Carlin: But Peter Sam was in such of state that he couldn't listen. He collected some coaches and went on his way. But somehow the faster that he wanted to go, the slower the journey became. When Peter Sam finally fussed through the station, Henry was already there.
  • Henry: This won't do, youngester.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry.
  • Henry: I can't be kept waiting. If you are late tonight, I'll go off and leave your passengers behind.
  • Peter Sam: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. Secretly, he was a little worried. But not for long. The conductor blew his whistle, and waved his green flag. Peter Sam puffed happily away, singing a little song.
  • Peter Sam: (singing) I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. I'm Peter Sam, I'm running this line. What fun it all is.
  • George Carlin: He thought as he journeyed along the line. The coaches enjoyed themselves too. They were growing fun of Peter Sam. Every afternoon, they had to wait an hour at the station by the lake. The stations has a little shops of the refreshments. The conductor, fireman and the guard buy tea and cakes for the refreshment lady. At last, the waiting was over. But Peter Sam was sizzling with impatients.
  • Peter Sam: Peep peep! Hurry up, please!
  • George Carlin: He whistled to the passengers.
  • Peter Sam: How awful.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Peter Sam: If we missed Henry's train.
  • George Carlin: The conductor was ready with his flag and whistle. The refreshment lady was making a way to the train. Then it happened. The conductor says that Peter Sam was too impatient. Peter Sam says he was sure he heard a whistle, anyway he started.
  • Coaches: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Wailed the coaches.
  • Coaches: You left the refreshment lady behind!
  • Peter Sam: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Groaned Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: We're sure to miss Henry now.
  • George Carlin: The refreshment lady climbed aboard and they started again. Peter Sam didn't sing anymore. Instead he hurried along the line as fast as he wheels and his driver would let him. They arrived at the station just in time.
  • Peter Sam: Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam. He felt very relief.
  • Henry: Not bad, youngster.
  • George Carlin: Said Henry loftly. But the refreshment lady was still cross.
  • Refreshment Lady: What do you mean by leaving me behind?
  • Peter Sam: I'm sorry, refreshment lady.
  • George Carlin: Replied Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: But Henry says he might leave without us.
  • George Carlin: Then the refreshment lady laughed.
  • Refreshment Lady: You silly engine! Henry was teasing you. He wouldn't ever go without his passengers. He's a guaranteed connection.
  • (Conductor's whistle blows)
  • Peter Sam: Well!
  • George Carlin: Said Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: Where's that Henry?
  • George Carlin: But Henry had chortled away.
  • (Henry's whistle toots)
  • (Percy's Seaside Trip is the next song to begin)
  • (Rooster crows)
  • Children: (singing) The sun is shining, it's a lovely day. It won't be long before we're on our way. The guard is waiting, flag in hand. He blows his whistle, we're off to sea and sand. The sky is blue, there's not a cloud in sight, So much excitement, didn't sleep all night. Now Percy's rushing trough the countryside, With people waving as we (peep peep) whistle by. Seaside, we're off to the seaside. Ice cream in cones, Candy floss on your nose. Seaside, we're off to the seaside, We're gonna have a lovely day. Just one more hill to climb and we'll be there. Sounds of the seaside start to fill the air. Then someone shouts out excitedly.
  • Girl: "Look over there, everybody, I can see the sea!"
  • Children: (singing) Seaside, we're off to the seaside, Buckets and spades, all the fairground arcades. Seaside, we're off to the seaside, We're gonna have a lovely day. And when it's cold in wintertime, Still you can be there any time. Just close your eyes, count 1-2-3, Dream your dream and once again be by the sea. Sir Topham Hatt arrives to greet the train. He is so pleased that Percy's right on time. So much excitement, so much glee. We're all together with Percy by the sea. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Building sandcastles with buckets and spades. Seaside, we're all at the seaside. Oh, what a lovely, lovely, day. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Picnics and paddling, swimming all day. Seaside, we're all at the seaside, Oh, what a lovely, lovely day. Thank you, Percy, for such a lovely day. Hooray!

  • (Once again, after the commercials, A Close Shave For Duck is the last story to start)
  • George Carlin: Duck the Great Western Engine puffed sadly to Edward's station.
  • Duck: It's not fair.
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Duck: Diesel has been telling lies about me and made Sir Topham Hatt and all the engines think I'm horrid.
  • George Carlin: Edward smiled.
  • Edward: I know you weren't, and so does Sir Topham Hatt. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these cars?
  • George Carlin: Duck felt happier with Edward, and set to work at once. The cars were silly, heavy and noisy. The two engines have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Duck: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Duck, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Duck love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Duck: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Freight Cars: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Roared the cars.
  • Freight Cars: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Duck's Driver: Hurry, Duck, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. They raced through Edward's station, but the cars were catching up.
  • Duck's Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • George Carlin: The driver was gaining control.
  • Duck's Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • George Carlin: James was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Duck's Driver: It's up to you now, Duck.
  • George Carlin: Cried the driver. Duck put every ounce of wait and steam against the cars.
  • Duck: It's too late!
  • George Carlin: Duck groaned. He veered into a siding where a barber had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The silly cars were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the cars didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Duck: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Duck.
  • Duck: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Barber: No I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • George Carlin: And he lathered Duck's face all other. Poor Duck! Thomas was helping to pull the cars away when Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Barber: I do not like engines popping through my walls.
  • George Carlin: Fumed the barber.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I appreciate your feelings.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But you must know that this engine and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Barber: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said the barber.
  • Barber: Oh! Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: He filled the basin of water to wash Duck's face.
  • Barber: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave engine.
  • Duck: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were very brave indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm proud of you.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Duck.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Duck: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Of course.
  • Duck: But, sir, they don't like me. They like Diesel.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not now. I never believed Diesel, so I sent him packing. The engines were sorry and want you back.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • George Carlin: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Duck the Great Western Engine.
  • (Accidents Will Happen is the last song to happen)
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Thrills and spills on the railway, it's a life of happiness. But sometimes impatience can lead to carelessness.
  • Boy: (singing) Some think they are smart cats...
  • Girl: (singing) ...and some just know it all.
  • Children: (singing) But sooner or later we all find out that... Accidents happen now and again. Just when you least expect. Just when you think that life is okay, fate comes to collect. Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart. If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. Your best laid plans can turn upside down if you get to confident. Sometime you will slip and slide if that Lady Luck's intent.
  • Girl: (singing) One minute you're riding high...
  • Boy: (singing) ...the next you're on the ground.
  • Children: (singing) But please remember, whatever the weather, you must take care cause... Accidents happen now and again, sometimes just by chance you gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down put it down to experience. Accidents happen now and again, just don't take it all to heart. Cause if you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. The warning signs are there for us to see most of the time. But sometimes we take chances, ignore the danger signs. Fate can surprise with no reason or rhyme. Make sure you'll learn your lesson. You'll know better next time. Accidents happen now and again. Just when you least expect. Just when you think that life is okay. Fate comes to collect. Accidents happen now and again, when people or trains get smart, if you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing. Accidents will happen just like that. Accidents happen now and again. Sometimes just by chance. You gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself down put it down to experience. Accidents happen now and again, just don't take it all to heart.
  • Girl: If you don't concentrate on the thing that you're doing whatever you're doing is not what you're thinking.
  • Children: (singing) Accidents, incidents. Accidents, incidents, accidents happen just like that.
  • (Gordon crashed into the wall)
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the A Britt Allcroft Production logo appears)
