  • (The Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Trouble For Thomas)
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine wouldn't stop being a nuisances. Night after night, he kept the other engines awake.
  • Thomas: I'm tired of pushing coaches. I wanna see the world.
  • George Carlin: The other engines didn't take much notice, for Thomas was a little engine with a long tongue. But one night, Edward came to the shed. He was a kind little engine and felt sorry for Thomas.
  • Edward: I've got some freight cars to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, I'll push coaches in the yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: That would be nice.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Edward and Thomas asked their drivers, and when they said "yes", Thomas ran off happily to find freight cars. Now the freight cars were silly and noisy. They talked a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And I'm sorry to say they play tricks on an engine who is not used to them. Edward knew all about the freight cars. He warned Thomas to be careful but Thomas was too excited to listen. The shunter fastened the coupling and when the signal dropped, Thomas was ready. The conductor blew his whistle.
  • Thomas: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: Answered Thomas and started off. But the freight cars weren't ready.
  • Freight Cars: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Freight Cars: Wait, Thomas, wait!
  • George Carlin: But Thomas would't wait.
  • Thomas: Come on come on.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Freight Cars: All right, don't fuss! All right, don't fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the cars. Thomas began going faster and faster.
  • Thomas: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: He whistled, as he rush through Henry's tunnel.
  • Thomas: Hurry, hurry.
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the cars grew crosser and crosser. At last Thomas slowed down as he came to Gordon's Hill.
  • (Thomas is at the top of Gordon's Hill, but is all exhausted)
  • Thomas' Driver: Steady, now, steady.
  • George Carlin: Warned the driver, as he reach the top. He began to put on the brakes.
  • Thomas: We're stopping, we're stopping!
  • George Carlin: Called Thomas.
  • Freight Cars: No, no, no!
  • George Carlin: Answered the cars bumping them to each other.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: Before the driver could stop them they had pushed Thomas down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind them. Poor Thomas tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast.
  • Thomas: Stop pushing, stop pushing!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. But the cars took no notice.
  • Freight Cars: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: They giggled in their silly way.
  • Thomas: There's the station! Oh dear, what shall I do?
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Thomas shut his eyes.
  • Thomas: I must stop!
  • (Thomas comes to a halt)
  • George Carlin: When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was...Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: What are you doing here, Thomas?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Thomas: I brought Edward's freight cars.
  • George Carlin: Thomas answered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Why did you come so fast?
  • Thomas: I didn't mean to. I was pushed.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You've got a lot to learn about freight cars, Thomas. After pushing them about here for a few weeks you'll know almost as much about them as Edward. Then you'll be a Really Useful Engine.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Old Iron)
  • George Carlin: One day, James have to wait at the station till Edward and his train came in. This made him cross.
  • James: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Edward laughed and James fumed again. After James had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • James: Edward is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • James: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy were indigment.
  • Percy: Old iron!? Slow!?
  • Thomas: Why, Edward could beat you in a race any day!
  • James: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said James.
  • James: I should like to see him do it.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, James' driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. James was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was James puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on James' footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when James started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Edward arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Edward: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Edward. James was laughing.
  • James: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • James: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Edward: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Edward. Edward was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with James.
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Edward's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Edward's driver checked the engines' speed, and James' fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Edward: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Edward.
  • James: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered James.
  • James: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Edward.
  • Edward: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Edward. The engines arrived at the station side by side. Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Edward. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Edward: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Edward.
  • Edward: It'll be lovely not to clank.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin 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!
  • (The mine explodes with impact)
  • 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.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Rheneas and The Roller Coaster)
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas is a brave little engine who enjoys working in the mountains on the Island of Sodor. Even though he is little, Rheneas loves feeling like a really useful engine. One day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see Rheneas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I have a very important job to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He boomed.
  • Rheneas: An important job!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rheneas.
  • Rheneas: Oh, thank you sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You are to take some school children up into the mountains. You must make sure they have a wonderful time and are back in time for their lunch.
  • Rheneas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rheneas. But he was worried. He wasn't sure he was good enough to make the trip special. When Rheneas arrived at the station, the children and the teacher were waiting on the platform.
  • Rheneas: How am I going to make the children's day really special?
  • Michael Brandon: He said to Rusty.
  • Rusty: You know the mountains better than any engine.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Rusty. But Rheneas wasn't sure his best will be exciting enough. He felt like a very little engine indeed. Sir Topham Hatt had told Rheneas' driver to point out all the beautiful sights along the way.
  • Rheneas' Driver: This is Sodor Castle.
  • Michael Brandon: Called his driver.
  • Rheneas' Driver: It is very special and important.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas saw the castle everyday. He didn't think it was special or important.
  • Rheneas: I must think of something exciting to do.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought to himself.
  • Rheneas' Driver: This is the valley view.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Rheneas' Driver: And here's the viaduct.
  • Children: (gasp)
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas was still unhappy. The trip didn't seem wonderful to him at all.
  • Rheneas: Must be special! Must be special.
  • Michael Brandon: He thought. Meanwhile, Rusty was working on the rocky ridge line. Heavy rains have washed the ground from under the road.
  • Foreman: These lines are too bumpy and uneven.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: The track must be closed for repairs.
  • Rheneas: Must be special. Must be special.
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas was still trying to think of something that will make the children's trip special. He didn't know the linesmen have forgotten to switch the points. Suddenly, Rheneas was on the wrong track.
  • Rheneas: Oh no! This line is closed for repairs. Bust my buffers!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Rheneas.
  • Rusty: Be careful!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Rusty.
  • Rusty: The tracks are very bumpy!
  • Michael Brandon: Rheneas wooshed down the mountain like a roller coaster. The children cheered. Rheneas puffed up the rocky ridge with all his might. His coach clattered and bumped and bounced along behind. And the children oooed and aaaed. Rheneas huffed and puffed as hard as he could. He steamed across the trestle bridge. He was going so fast the teacher nearly lost her hat. Rheneas splashed under a waterfall, the children laughed happily and the teacher covered her eyes. At last, they could see the station. Rheneas was very tired and worried.
  • Rheneas: What will Sir Topham Hatt say?
  • Teacher: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Said the teacher.
  • Teacher: Just in time for lunch.
  • Children: It was the best school trip ever!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the children. Sir Topham Hatt wasn't cross with Rheneas, he was happy too.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You gave the children a wonderful trip. You really are a very useful engine.
  • Rheneas: Oh, thank you sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Rheneas proudly. Rheneas didn't feel like a little engine anymore.
  • (Children cheer)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Buffer Bother)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben are quarry engines. They are twins. They play together, they shunt freight cars together. They even get up to naughtyness together. Whenever you find Bill you will find Ben. Whether you find Ben you will find Bill. Sir Topham Hatt had come to inspect his quarry engines. He found that Mavis and Bill were in fine working order.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Unfortunately, Ben.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your buffers are damaged. You must report to the engine works inmediately for a new set of buffers. Mavis you will have to work with Bill until Ben returns.
  • Mavis: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis and Sir Topham Hatt drove away. Ben was happy.
  • Ben: I'm going to get new buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: He gloated to Bill.
  • Bill: Well I should get new buffers too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill complained.
  • Bill: We're twins. We do everything together.
  • Ben: But you don't need new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben teased.
  • Bill: You're getting new buffers because you're getting clumsy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill enviously.
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Mavis: Will you two stop being crackpots?
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis scolded.
  • Mavis: Now come on, Bill, we've got work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben couldn't wait to get new buffers. Later, Bill watched as Ben chuffed away to the engine works. He was green with envy, he wanted new buffers too. Bill returned to his job but he wasn't thinking about work. All he could think about was Ben's new buffers.
  • (Bill and the flatbed run into some buffers)
  • Bill: Ooh!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: (sneezes)
  • Mavis: Be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: And stop thinking about Ben's new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill tried thinking about birds, he tried thinking about trees, he tried thinking about anything but Ben and his brand new buffers. But it didn't work.
  • Bill: I want new buffers too!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Mavis: Just be happy you're in good working order.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Bill: It's not fair!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill huffed and he wheeshed soot all over Mavis.
  • Mavis: Bill!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Mavis.
  • Bill: Oops, sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill. Bill tried his best to get with his work. But the troublesome trucks have spotted a chance for a tease.
  • Trucks: Poor poor Bill, he works, he suffers, while Ben his twin gets brand new buffers!
  • Bill: I might not have new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Bill: But I still know how to biff troublesome trucks.
  • Mavis: No!
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis cried.
  • (Bill pushes a troublesome truck and accidentally falls into a pit)
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late. Ben puffed into the quarry with his shiny new buffers just in time to hear...
  • Bill: Bust my buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Bill.
  • Ben: I think you have.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived and saw Bill's broken buffers, he was not happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You behaved badly Bill.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you have anything to say for yourself?
  • Bill: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Before you get new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt continued.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to think what it means to be a responsible reliable engine.
  • Bill: Yes Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Answered Bill weakly. After Sir Topham Hatt left, Ben rolled up to Bill with his new buffers gleaming.
  • Bill: They are nice buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill said.
  • Ben: Thanks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben said.
  • Ben: I'm sorry I teased you.
  • Bill: That's all right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I was naughty too.
  • Ben: Of course you are.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: We're twins.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Wrong Road)
  • George Carlin: Thomas' branch line is important and so is Edward. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Sir Topham Hatt does not allow the heavier main line engines like Gordon to run on them. But one day, the way Gordon was talking, he would have thought Sir Topham Hatt had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Gordon: It's not fair!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Gordon.
  • Edward: What isn't fair?
  • George Carlin: Asked Edward.
  • Gordon: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Edward: Never mind, Gordon. I'm sure BoCo will let you pull his freight cars sometimes.
  • George Carlin: Gordon spluttered.
  • Gordon: I wont pull BoCo's dirty cars. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Edward: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Gordon: Sir Topham Hatt would never approve.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon puffed away. Edward chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two engines pulled two fast trains from the station. Gordon always leaves first with an express for the main line. Edward follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Gordon to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Gordon's Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • George Carlin: He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Gordon started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Gordon had been stopped and brought back, Edward was already late with his train. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Edward along the main line. Gordon was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Bill and Ben peeped into the yard. There were no cars for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Gordon will be much better fun.
  • Bill: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bill?
  • Ben: Shush!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ben.
  • Ben: It's Gordon.
  • Bill: It looks like Gordon but it can't be. Gordon never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Gordon pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Ben: If it isn't Gordon.
  • George Carlin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Bill: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Ben: No Bill, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was alarmed.
  • Gordon: I am Gordon. Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: When BoCo suddenly arrived, Gordon thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Gordon: BoCo, my dear engine, save me.
  • George Carlin: BoCo quickly sized up the situation and threatened to take away the cars he brought for Bill and Ben. This made the twin behave at once. Gordon thought BoCo was wonderful.
  • Gordon: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • BoCo: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said BoCo.
  • BoCo: It's just a knack.
  • George Carlin: Gordon still believed that BoCo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bulls Eyes)
  • George Carlin: Toby the Tram Engine has cowcatcher and sideplates. They helped to prevent animals from getting hurt if they should stray onto the line. Daisy thought Toby's fenders were silly.
  • Daisy: You're afraid of getting hurt yourself.
  • George Carlin: She flounced.
  • Toby: I'm not.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Toby.
  • Daisy: Yes you are. I don't have stupid cowcatchers but i'm not frightened. I just toot and they all go away.
  • Toby: But they don't.
  • George Carlin: Said Toby.
  • Daisy: They would with me. Animals always run if you toot and look them in the eye.
  • Toby: Even bulls?
  • Daisy: Even bulls.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy. Daisy had never met a bull but she purred away quite unconcerned. She tooted at a farm crossing and the horse and cart halted while she went by.
  • Daisy: Huh!
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Daisy: It's easy. I just toot and they all stand aside. Poor little Toby. I'm sorry he's frightened.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, a policeman was waiting.
  • Policeman: There's a bull on the line.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Policeman: Please persuade it to return to the farmer.
  • George Carlin: Daisy was excited.
  • Daisy: Now...
  • George Carlin: She thought.
  • Daisy: ...I'll show Toby how to manage bulls.
  • George Carlin: Champion isn't really a fierce bull, but this morning he was cross. He'd strayed from his field, crashed through a fence, slithered down a slope and now he didn't know where he was. Suddenly, he saw some grass.
  • Champion: Now for my breakfast.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Daisy: Oooh!
  • George Carlin: Tooted Daisy.
  • Daisy: Go on.
  • George Carlin: Champion was too busy chomping to take any notice.
  • Daisy: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy again. Champion kept grazing.
  • Daisy: This is all wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy.
  • Daisy: How can I look him in the eye if he wont turn around.
  • George Carlin: At last he did.
  • Champion: Moo!
  • George Carlin: Said Champion.
  • Daisy: Oo, oh, uh!
  • George Carlin: Murmured Daisy.
  • Daisy: Why doesn't he run away?
  • Daisy's Driver: Go on, Daisy.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Daisy's Driver: He's harmless.
  • Daisy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy unhappily.
  • Daisy: You know he's harmless and I know he's harmless. But does he know. Look at his horns if i bump into him he might hurt, me uh, them. Uh, the farmer wouldn't like that.
  • George Carlin: Champion sniffed at Daisy.
  • (Champion starts sniffing)
  • Daisy: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: Said Daisy and that was that. Daisy did no more. Toby was bemused and amused to see her back in the station so soon.
  • Toby: Bulls always run if you toot and look them in the eye. Eh, Daisy?
  • George Carlin: Daisy stayed silent.
  • Toby: Ah, well.
  • George Carlin: Continued Toby.
  • Toby: We can live and learn. I better chase him away for you I suppose.
  • George Carlin: He clanked away to find Champion. Toby's bell rang and his whistle sounded but Champion took no notice. Then Toby whooshed loudly. That did the trick. Toby whooshed a little more and now breakfast over. Champion chauntered away to join the farmer. Daisy was feeling exhausted. She was glad when her day's work was over. Some boys were on the platform.
  • Boy: Look, Daisy.
  • George Carlin: One teased.
  • Boy: I've got some sweets. They're called Bulls Eyes. I like them do you.
  • Daisy: Ah, keep your old bulls eyes.
  • George Carlin: And Daisy scuttled to her shed.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Percy and The Squeak)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor love the summer. Sir Topham Hatt arranges lots of concerts. Music can often be heard drifting through the air. The engines do enjoy it. One morning, the engines were very excited. Alicia Botti, the famous singer, was coming to the Island of Sodor.
  • Gordon: She's a coloratura.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon importantly.
  • Thomas: What's a coloratura?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas.
  • Gordon: It means she can sing high notes very, very loud.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt will choose me to collect her.
  • Alec Baldwin: Boasted James.
  • James: I'm the brightest and the shiniest.
  • Gordon: Nonsense, I'm the most important.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Gordon. Thomas wanted to feel important too.
  • Thomas: He might choose me.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said hopefully.
  • Gordon: Well one thing's for sure...
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: He wont choose Dirty Percy.
  • Percy: Don't call me Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: He chuffed crossly and he wheeshed away. But the next day, Sir Topham Hatt didn't choose Gordon and he didn't choose James, he chose Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Make sure Annie and Clarabel are squeaky clean.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas proudly. He felt very important indeed.
  • Thomas: Move aside, Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm the important engine today.
  • Percy: But I need a washdown.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Percy.
  • Percy: My passengers will laugh at me.
  • Thomas: But I had to be squeaky clean.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: So you'll just have to wait.
  • Percy: I can't wait!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumped Percy.
  • Percy: I'm a guaranteed connection.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he chuffed away. Soon, Thomas was shiny and squeaky clean. He felt more important than ever. But as the workers coupled Annie and Clarabel, they heard a strange sound.
  • Mouse: (squeaks)
  • Thomas: What's that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Thomas anxiously. His driver quickly oiled Annie and Clarabel's under carriage.
  • Thomas' Driver: That should take care of the bothersome squeak.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. On the way to the docks, Thomas heard the squeak again. He was worried. He didn't sound like his squeaky clean squeak. Thomas squeaked noisily into the keyside where Alicia Botti was waiting. Sir Topham Hatt held Clarabel's door open when...
  • Alicia Botti: A mouse!
  • Alec Baldwin: Alicia Botti screamed.
  • Mouse: (squeaking)
  • Alicia Botti: (screaming)
  • Alec Baldwin: And she screamed and she screamed and she screamed. She screamed so loud and so long that windows broke all over town.
  • Gordon: Definitely a coloratura.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon. Alicia Botti was cross.
  • Alicia Botti: I can't possibly travel in coaches riddled with mice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was very embarrassed and Thomas didn't feel important at all. Just then, Percy returned from his guaranteed connection.
  • Alicia Botti: Look at the little green engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Alicia Botti exclaimed.
  • Alicia Botti: So sweet and dirty like a proper steam engine.
  • Gordon: But he's filthy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon huffed snootily.
  • Percy: But I cleaned up nice.
  • Alec Baldwin: Smiled Percy. He was glad somebody noticed. Alicia Botti boarded the train and Percy steamed away. He felt very proud. Later, Thomas saw Percy at the washdown.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry I called you Dirty Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: You go first.
  • Percy: Thanks, Thomas. It feels good to be friends.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: But where is your mouse?
  • Thomas: You'll see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grinned Thomas. That night was Alicia Botti's concert. Her voice carried across half the island. Sir Topham Hatt had made the little mouse her very own home in the corner of Tidmouth Sheds. And Thomas named her, Alicia.
  • Alicia: (squeaks)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Something In The Air)
  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Thomas was at the keyside of a small village. Fish were being loaded into his cars. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Alec Baldwin: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, they saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • (Thomas
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Alec Baldwin: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, I'll tell them to close the line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was waiting for Thomas' cars.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: It's the fish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Pah! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my cars hitched to my train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. He was steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What route is Henry taking tonight?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But I told you!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. And when he could, it was too late.
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Alec Baldwin: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them. You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Alec Baldwin: But there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Henry happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin The Runaway Elephant)
  • Michael Brandon: The engines on the Island of Sodor were excited. A new park was being built. Everyone was working hard to get the job finished on time. Duncan was feeling impatient.
  • Duncan: Get a move on slow coach.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed crossly to Rusty.
  • Duncan: You're so slow I finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He boasted to Skarloey. Skarloey was cross. A little later, he met Rusty at the new park station.
  • Skarloey: Duncan thinks he's fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey steamed.
  • Skarloey: But he's just a bossy boiler.
  • Rusty: Better safe and fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty agreed. Duncan drove into the station. He was all puffed up and pleased with himself.
  • Duncan: I've finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed proudly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: In that case.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I got another job for you. You are to collect the elephant from the sidings and take it to the park.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This elephant is very important. You must be very careful.
  • Michael Brandon: When Duncan saw the elephant, he was surprised.
  • Duncan: Why it's only a statue.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Duncan: This is an easy job.
  • Stationmaster: You must wait for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: The statue is very heavy.
  • Duncan: Nonsense.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Duncan to his driver.
  • Duncan: I pushed heavier loads than this plenty of time.
  • Duncan's Driver: Let's go, Duncan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: But we must be careful.
  • Michael Brandon: So they left, but without the brakevan. But Duncan wasn't careful. He was impatient.
  • Duncan: We'll show them how fast I can be.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan whistled.
  • Duncan: We'll deliver this statue and I'll still finish first.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan started to speed up. Soon, Duncan was going as fast as his wheels could carry him. His driver was starting to worry. So he tried to brake. But Duncan was out of control. He was scared. He had never gone this fast. People waved and cars tooted as Duncan sped by. Suddenly, a tractor trundled across Duncan's line.
  • Duncan's Driver: Look out!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted his driver.
  • Rusty: Slow down, slow down!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Rusty.
  • Duncan: I can't!
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan cried as he shot past.
  • Duncan: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Elephant park loomed ahead. Duncan's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. The statue flew into the air and landed in the lake. Luckily, nobody was hurt. In no time, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. He was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I told you to be careful. You shouldn't waited for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Duncan: I'm sorry, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Mumbled Duncan. He felt very embarrassed. Duncan was repaired again in time for the grand opening. He was still surprised to see the elephant standing in the lake.
  • Lady Hatt: Everyone loves the elephant in the lake.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Lady Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Even if it was a mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Engines: Hooray for Duncan's mistake!
  • Michael Brandon: Cheered the engines. Duncan blushed and went a deep shade red.
