Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Season 6 intro, and finally the start of Salty's Secret)
  • Alec Baldwin: All the engines on the Island of Sodor love their work. But sometimes there was too much work. That's what Sir Topham Hatt brings new engines to the island. Salty the Dockyard Diesel is one of these engines. He loves to tell tales of the sea.
  • Salty: We heave until the old favor quite the tide. Arrgh, it's good to be useful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty was excited about coming to the Island of Sodor. Islands are surrounded by the sea. Salty loves the sea. Soon Salty arrived at his new job.
  • Salty: Ahoy, mateys. Salty, pride of the seven seas. I'm the new diesel and I'm here to give you some help.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben didn't think they needed any help, especially from a diesel.
  • Mavis: Welcome to Center Island Quarry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis said proudly. Salty looked all around. Everywhere he looked, he saw nothing but rocks.
  • Salty: A quarry?!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Salty: There must be some mistake. I'm a dockyard diesel.
  • Mavis: You're a quarry diesel now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis said. And she explained that they had to complete an important job for Sir Topham Hatt. Salty was sad that he wouldn't be working by the sea. But he knew what it meant to be a really useful engine and he sent to work at once.
  • Salty: Ah well.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty said.
  • Salty: At least they're be trucks.
  • Mavis: You better mind them.
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis said.
  • Mavis: They can be a bother.
  • Bill: He won't last five minutes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: Those trucks will trip him up soon enough.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben. But to Bill and Ben surprised, the trucks seem to give Salty no trouble at all.
  • Salty: Yo-ho-ho and the bucket of prawns the tiller spins and the captain yawns. Yo-ho-ho and the bucket of prawns the tiller spins.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sang Salty.
  • Trucks: And the captain yawns.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sang the trucks. Thanks to Salty, Sir Topham Hatt's important job was almost done. Bill and Ben were surprised and a little jealous.
  • Ben: Here comes Mr. Show Off.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grouched Ben.
  • Mavis: You have to admit he's got a neck with those trucks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Bill: Driver says he'll board the boats off his stories.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Bill. But Salty didn't say a word. He didn't come near the shed. Mavis was worried. She rolled along side and asked him what he was doing on his own.
  • Salty: Oh I thought I might I catch a bit of sea breeze.
  • Mavis: You really miss the sea, don't you?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Mavis.
  • Salty: Aye.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Salty.
  • Salty: I do.
  • Alec Baldwin: But Salty knew the quarry work was important. The next day he tried to show Bill and Ben his secret with the trucks.
  • Salty: I like working to a musical rhythm.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Salty: And so did the trucks. Why don't you give it a try, me harties?
  • Bill: Here we go, here we go, here we go.
  • Ben: No we don't, no we don't, no we don't don't don't.
  • Alec Baldwin: But try as they might, Bill and Ben could not move the trucks the way Salty could. Later that day, Sir Topham Hatt came to the quarry. He was surprised the job had been completed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done.
  • Mavis: It was Salty.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: We couldn't have done it without him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then I've got a bigger job for you, Salty.
  • Salty: Aye-aye, Sir. What kind of quarry is it?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quarry?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sending you to Brendam Docks.
  • Salty: The docks!
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty explained.
  • Salty: The docks are hard by the sea! Oh thank you Sir!
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Salty: This reminds me of the time in bimini.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Salty was telling stories again. Salty loves Brendam Docks. He gets more work done then  three engines and feels really useful. And only the trucks know his secrets.
  • Salty: Yo-ho-ho and the bucket of prawns the tiller spins and the captain yawns.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Edward The Really Useful Engine)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor are good at different things. Gordon is a very good express, Percy is good at carrying the mail and when Edward is not hauling freight cars, he is very good at being a back engine. When engines have heavy loads, Edward buffers up behind and helps push. But Edward is old. Some engines think this makes him unreliable.
  • Gordon: Edward is a useless old steam-pot.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon sniffed.
  • Gordon: He should be retired.
  • Percy: But he doesn't have tires.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said.
  • Thomas: Retired.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Means taken out of service.
  • Gordon: And not a moment too soon.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon. And the other big engines agreed with him, but Percy was very upset. Later, his driver asked him why he looked so glum. Percy told him about Edward.
  • Percy: The big engines don't think he's useful anymore.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said. Percy's driver saw Sir Topham Hatt and told him what Percy had said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I will attend to the matter immediately.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt had a plan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The new loop line is completed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said to Edward.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to teach Stepney how to run it properly.
  • Edward: But sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He asked.
  • Edward: Who will look after the freight cars?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Duck will do your work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt replied. When the other engines heard Duck was going to help them, they were pleased.
  • Henry: Duck is very reliable.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Gordon: It makes no difference to me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon pompously.
  • Gordon: I don't need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he wheeshed away. Edward enjoyed working with Stepney. It was great fun delivering passengers to stations in the beautiful countryside. But Duck was not happy. The trucks were playing their silly games.
  • Troublesome Trucks: (singing) Duck should play with other ducks cause he's no good at pulling trucks. Quack, quack, quack, quack. Hold back, hold back.
  • Alec Baldwin: They giggled. Duck found himself going slower, and slower, and slower. Halfway up Gordon's Hill, his wheels stopped all together. Duck was stuck.
  • Duck's Driver: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Duck's Driver: This is Gordon's line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck's guard phoned the signalman to warn him.
  • Signalman: It's too late to switch Gordon to the middle line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You'll have to flag him down.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon saw the guard.
  • Gordon: If I stop on this hill, I'll never get started again.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said crossly and he buffered up to Duck. Gordon tried to set off again, but his wheels spun and spun.
  • Gordon's Driver: It's no use. We need a back engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the driver.
  • Gordon's Driver: I'll send for Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was cross. Edward was excited. He was going to be a back engine for two trains. Edward cheerfully buffered up and the strange train set off. They chuffed gently into the station.
  • Boy: Look at that!
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed a boy.
  • Boy: The back engine must be the strongest and the best.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon was embarrassed. Sir Topham Hatt spoke severly to Gordon.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You have set rude things about Edward. He proved today that he is useful reliable and very helpful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Gordon felt very ashamed. The next morning, Gordon apologized.
  • Gordon: Thank you for helping me Edward.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Gordon.
  • Gordon: You really are a useful engine.
  • Edward: It's good to be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Edward chuffed happily. Sir Topham Hatt's plan had worked. There was no more talk about Edward retiring.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin No Sleep For Cranky)
  • Alec Baldwin: Brendam docks is one of the busiest dockyards on all the Island of Sodor. It's where ships and engines and cranes alike are busy day and night, every day of the year. But poor Cranky the Crane never gets a nap. He never gets to sleep early, he works all the time and his only company are the gulls that settle on his arm. So Cranky is always cranky.
  • Salty: Ahoy there, Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Salty.
  • Cranky: Where have you been!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Salty: And a good day to you capn.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben arrive for work full of mischief.
  • Cranky: Hurry up!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Cranky: I haven't got all day.
  • Bill: You're no fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Bill.
  • Cranky: You wouldn't be fun if you were stuck up here.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Cranky.
  • Bill: So that's why you're cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Ben: You're lonely.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Cranky: I'm not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky cranked.
  • Salty: So it's company you'd be needing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Salty.
  • Salty: Reminds me of a lonely old bank's lighthouse keeper.
  • Cranky: Not another one of your stories.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Cranky.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh please, Salty.
  • Alec Baldwin: They chimed.
  • Bill and Ben: We haven't heard it.
  • Salty: Thus in the middle of the wee naughty storm.
  • Alec Baldwin: Salty began.
  • Salty: A likes of which he sees once in a lifetime.
  • Alec Baldwin: This made Cranky very cranky. So cranky that he swung his arm around and dropped the pipes onto the tracks instead of the trucks.
  • Cranky: Whoops!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Cranky meekly.
  • Salty: You blown the main down, matey.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Salty. The engines were trapped.
  • Bill and Ben: You're gonna get into trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sang Bill and Ben. Sir Topham Hatt was in his office being measured for his new suit. When he heard the news, he left inmediately for the docks. Sir Topham Hatt knew that any delay at the docks could cause trouble.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You had made a terrible mess, Cranky.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said sternly.
  • Cranky: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky whispered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You engines will have to stay here tonight until Harvey clears up this mess in the morning.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cranky's heart sank as Salty uttered those faithful words.
  • Salty: It reminds me of a story. It was a bitter cold winter. The brave little ship was stuck until the ice melted the next spring. He barely made it round the cape after a hundred scary days at sea without a scratch. He sailed into port and crashed his bout in 50 feet from my buffers. Luckily no one was hurt.
  • Cranky: Except my ears.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Cranky. Salty spent all night telling tales of powerful storms, daring rescues and brave little ships. And when the sun rose, he was still talking and talking and talking.
  • Cranky: I can't take anymore.
  • Alec Baldwin: Groaned Cranky. Harvey the Crane Engine arrived.
  • Harvey: Sir Topham Hatt sent me to help clear away this mess.
  • Alec Baldwin: He puffed proudly. Cranky was so pleased the engines will be going soon, he forgot to be cranky.
  • Cranky: I'll never misbehave again.
  • Alec Baldwin: He promised.
  • Cranky: As long as I don't have to listen to anymore of Salty's stories.
  • Alec Baldwin: And after Harvey and the workmen had cleared the wreckage, Cranky worked hard all day. He carefully loaded the trucks, helped speed the engines on their way and he said please and thank you.
  • Thomas: This is new.
  • Alec Baldwin: Puffed Thomas. But he had spoken too soon. Cranky couldn't help himself.
  • Percy: It was nice while it lasted.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy and all the engines laughed. But Cranky it was still cranky.
