Part One

Narrator: One morning, Thomas and Percy were shunting trucks in the yard.

Thomas: Hey guys, I heard there's a new engine coming.

Percy: Really?

Thomas: Yeah, he's coming tomorrow, apparently.

Percy: It must be a preserved steam engine, though.

Thomas: Yeah, the last thing we need is a new diesel. But some are nice, though. Like Boco and Mavis.

Percy: Yeah...

Narrator: The next day, the engines were in the sheds, waiting for Sir Topham Hatt.

Thomas: I wonder who the new engine will be.

Gordon: I hope he comes from the LNER.

Henry: Or perhaps the Midlands.

Duck: Maybe another Great Western engine.

James: That tin-pot railway.

Duck: {angry} Tin-pot?! Let me-

Sir Topham Hatt: Silence! Now I suppose you're all wondering why I called you here...

Thomas: A new engine, sir.

Sir Topham Hatt: {shocked} How did you find out?

Percy: Like, James told us.

Sir Topham Hatt: James, how did you find out?

James: You told me.

Sir Topham Hatt: Oh. I must have been drunk or something. Anyway, {clears throat} she was built by the old Great Eastern Railway in Britain. Her name is Molly.

Gordon: Yes! Another Eastern engine in the yard!

Narrator: Just then, Molly puffed in. She was bright yellow. She had great big wheels and a shiny funnel. She looked very smart.

Sir Topham Hatt: Everyone, meet Molly. She is the newest edition to the railway. And you don't want to mess with her. {shocked} Seriously, though! She's a killer!

Molly: Hello, everybody. It's nice to see you all.

Gordon: You might've heard of me from the LNER. I'm Gordon.

Molly: Yep, I've seen you. Great Northern Railway number 1469 {one-four-sixty-nine}.

Gordon: This green engine over here is Henry.

Henry: Hello, Molly. I was expecting a Fowler or a Jubilee, but you're cool.

Molly: {blushes} Thanks.

Edward: {grandly} I am Edward. Welcome to our railway, my lady.

Narrator: Edward tried to bow to Molly, but he failed miserably. He would have kissed her hand too, if she had hands.

Percy: I'm Percy. We don't see many of your class anymore.

Molly: Yeah. {sadly} I'm the last of my kind.

Duck: I'm Duck, and this is my best friend, Oliver.

Oliver: Hello, Molly.

James: {yells} You're hot!!!

{The other engines stare at him, except Thomas for some reason.}

James: Anyways, James is the name, being shiny and clean is me game! {laughs proudly} You might have heard of me.

Molly: Not really.

James: {mutters} #$^& it...

Donald: I'm Donald...

Douglas: ...and I'm Douglas!

Donald and Douglas: We're Scottish twins!

Molly: Whoa, Scottish engines. We don't see much of those anymore.

Donald: {sadly} Och, we don't.

Douglas: {sadly} We're of a dying breed.

Molly: I didn't catch your name.

Narrator: Thomas didn't answer. He was speechless.

{Thomas' mouth turns from open wide to a big open smile, and hearts appear in his eyes.}

Emily: That's Thomas. He usually doesn't act like this.

Molly: I see.

Sir Topham Hatt: Molly, your first jobs are on the main line. Gordon will show you around.

Narrator: Soon, the engines set off for work, except Thomas.

Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, are you okay?

Thomas: {smiles} She is so beautiful...

Narrator: Several days went by. Thomas still talked about Molly nonstop, and he would catch a glimpse of her out of the corner of his eye whenever possible. The other engines were getting annoyed by Thomas' wussiness.

Oliver: What's going on with Thomas? He's taking Molly a little too seriously lately, and he won't tell her his feelings. Also, {annoyed} I'm very sick and tired of constantly having cameos! {not annoyed} Anyway, if he doesn't tell her now, someone else might take her from him.

James: Might be me!

{Everyone stares at James.}

Percy: You are really screwed in the smokebox, James.

Narrator: Meanwhile, Molly was preparing her first passenger train on Sodor. She was careful not to bump the coaches, because most boy engines were rough with them, especially James. As she went along the countryside, the coaches and passengers were impressed.

NWR Coaches: Women always lead! Women always lead!

Narrator: She arrived at Knapford Station early, just as Gordon arrived at the station. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting anxiously for Molly. He was impressed.

Sir Topham Hatt: Molly, you're doing a great job so far. Keep up the good work.

Narrator: Later, Molly was telling the other engines about her life - the LNER years, the post-war years, and how she arrived on Sodor.

Molly: ...luckily for me, I was saved by the North Norfolk Railway, and lived there for a happy fifteen years.

Narrator: The other engines were impressed with her, and praised her.

Henry: She is amazing!

Douglas: Molly has resource...

Gordon: ...and sagacity.

Emily: What does that mean?

Percy: I think it's about being clever and wise.

Gordon: She is an example to us all.

Molly: {giggling} You're too kind.

Narrator: I'm sorry to say it made her puffed in the smokebox, and became rather conceited. One afternoon, she was shunting trucks at the quarry with Boco, Mavis and Diesel. Molly had a fear of diesels, by saw that Boco and Mavis were friendly and became friends with them. Diesel had an idea to trick her.

Diesel: Hello, there. You must be the new engine, Molly.

Molly: Yes, I am.

Narrator: Molly didn't know that Diesel was playing a trick on her.

Diesel: Henry says he'd like you to take his train this evening. He'd be honored.

Molly: Well, that is nice of a Midland to let me take his or her train. {puffs away}

Diesel: {laughs}

Narrator: Soon, Molly took Henry's train to the other railway. She didn't realize that Henry was late because a cow had come onto his line, and by the time he arrived, Molly had left.

Molly: This is really lovely. My first evening train in a while!

Narrator: Molly was coming to a broken bridge, and the trucks had a plan.

Troublesome Trucks: ON! ON! ON!

Narrator: Molly applied her brakes, by it was too late!

{Molly runs into the barrier, and dangles over a river.}

Molly: {yelling} Help!!! I'm going to fall!

Narrator: Meanwhile, Thomas was pulling his last train for the evening. The stationmaster was waiting for him.

Stationmaster: Thomas! Molly is dangling off a bridge, and you need to save her!

Thomas: I'll get Percy to fetch you!

Annie and Clarabel: We heard that one before!

Narrator: Thomas arrived at Knapford, and saw Henry and Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt was cross.

Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas! Henry was supposed to take his goods train to the other railway, and now it's been taken by Molly!

Thomas: This is one of Diesel's tricks! I can't let Molly become extinct! {puffs away}

Sir Topham Hatt: I'll make sure Diesel is spoken to!

Narrator: Thomas found Molly at the bridge. Luckily, she was still in the same position she'd been for the last forty minutes.

Molly: Thomas, help me! I'm going to fall!

Thomas: No you won't!

Narrator: Thomas carefully buffered up to the brakevan, and pulled hard as he could. Molly released her brakes and backed up. They made it out just in time, as the bridge collapsed!

{Thomas and Molly return to Knapford.}

Sir Topham Hatt: Molly, what are you playing at?

Molly: I'm sorry, sir. But Diesel told me that Henry asked me to take his train.

Henry: No, I didn't! It's just another of Diesel's nasty tricks!

Sir Topham Hatt: I have spoken to Diesel, and he will shunt in the yards for the next month.

Narrator: Molly saw that Thomas had left quickly, and left to find him. Henry took his goods train on a different route to the other railway. Molly found Thomas in Ffarqhuar sheds, looking miserable.

Thomas: {sadly} Hello, Molly...

Molly: Thomas, what's wrong?

Thomas: It's just that... I - I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I

Molly: {surprised} You do?

Thomas: Yes. It just sucks.

Molly: Aw, I’m so sorry!

Thomas: It's not your fault. Some things just happen when you don’t expect them.

Narrator: Then the most odd thing happened. Molly slowly puffed forward to Thomas, and smiled.

Thomas: Molly, y-you

Molly: Yes. I didn't like James at all.

Thomas: {throws up on Molly} Bluuuuch!

Molly: Eeewwww!

Thomas: {looks away, embarrassed} Sorry...

Molly: No, it's okay, Thomas! {Thomas looks at her.} Everything's going to be okay!

Narrator: One evening, later that week, Thomas and Molly were on a date to Black Loch. Molly loved the sunset and the seals playing in the water.

Thomas: {starts to speak, but is cut off}

Molly: Me too, Thomas.

Thomas: How did you know what I was about to say?

Molly: Sometimes a girl just knows. By the way, how'd you know I had a crush on you?

Thomas: I just do.

{Cut to a ThomasxMolly montage.}

{Molly is in a siding, crying} {Thomas is next to Molly, comforting her.} {James puffs away from Molly, leaving her upset} {Molly smiles at Thomas, and he throws up} {Molly is looking up at the sky} {Thomas and Molly are puffing on the same track, buffer to buffer} {End credits start} Thomas and Molly at Tidmouth Sheds} {Molly struggling at Gordon's hill} {Molly is crying, Thomas feels sorry for her} {Thomas smiles and Molly, and she looks at him} {Thomas and Molly puffing on parallel tracks} {End credits pause} Molly thinks of Thomas} {Thomas thinks of Molly} {Molly puffs past the windmill} {Thomas and Molly at Tidmouth Sheds, with a daughter resembling Thomas with Molly's tender and a son looking like Thomas} {End credits resume} {Thomas and Molly pulling Annie and Clarabel together} {Molly puffs by the countryside} {Thomas and Molly smiling at each other} {different angle} {Molly is talking to Gordon at Knapford} {Thomas alone in a siding} {Thomas and Molly puffing buffer to buffer in the countryside} {End credits pause} {Thomas shows a face in rescuing Molly} {Thomas pulls Molly free from the bridge} {Thomas and Molly at Ffarqhuar sheds} {End credits resume} {Thomas and Molly at Tidmouth Sheds}

{Thomas and Molly puffing on parallel tracks} {Thomas and Molly are puffing away in the distance.}

Narrator: And so, we come to the happy end of our tenth episode. But it's time for all of us to go home, just like Thomas and Molly, our Sodor steam engines.

{Thomas blows his whistle; Molly follows.}
