Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Season 6 intro, and finally the start of Scaredy Engines)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on the Island of Sodor look forward to Halloween. They love Sir Topham Hatt's fireworks and the children dressing up as wizards and witches. They also loved Edward's spooky stories.
  • Edward: They say that on Halloween, the ghost engine returns to the smelters looking for his lost whistle: Whoo, whoo!
  • Engines: Ooh, aah, spooky!
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines said all shivering a little. Later, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, Percy and Duck, I have a special job for you. You are to collect some scrap from the smelters yard tonight.
  • Percy: On Halloween!?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Don't worry. You'll be back in time for the fireworks.
  • Thomas: Percy isn't worried about missing the fireworks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Teased Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's a scaredy engine.
  • Percy: I am not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Percy. But he was, a little. At the smelters, all Percy could think about was Edward's ghost engine. Thomas knew Percy was scared. So he teased him even more.
  • Thomas: What's that up there?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas squeaked.
  • Thomas: Is it a spook?
  • Percy: It's just a piece of twisted scrap.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy said nervously.
  • Percy: Isn't it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was having fun. He kept on teasing Percy.
  • Thomas: Careful, the ghost engine doesn't get you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Percy: There's no such thing as ghosts!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Percy. Duck felt sorry for Percy
  • Duck: Nobody's brave all the time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: But i'm not a scaredy engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy insisted. The job was nearly complete.
  • Yard Manager: Well done.
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard manager said.
  • Yard Manager: Now I'll need one engine to finish up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck wanted to pay Thomas back for all his teasing.
  • Duck: Please sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Duck: I'm sure Thomas wouldn't mind stay.
  • Thomas: Of course not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas boasted.
  • Thomas: I'm not a scaredy engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Duck and Percy left. When Thomas was by himself, every sound and every shadow was spooky. He was beginning to feel very scared.
  • Thomas: There's no such thing as ghosts.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said nervously.
  • Thomas: Who's there?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was so busy looking for ghosts, he didn't watch where he was going. The chains felt like ghost fingers.
  • Thomas: Something's got me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas wheeshed and set off an old steam whistle.
  • (Old whistle blows)
  • Thomas: The g-g-ghost whistle.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas and he raced away as fast as his wheels could carry him.
  • Thomas: (echoing) The ghost engine is after me!
  • Duck: It was naughty of Thomas to tease you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck.
  • Percy: He was only playing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I hope he hurries up. I wouldn't want him to be late for the fireworks.
  • Thomas: He's after meeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!
  • Duck: I don't think he'll be late.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Duck. Duck and Percy joined the other engines for the fireworks.
  • Percy: Where's Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy asked.
  • Percy: He'll miss all the fun.
  • Duck: It would serve him right after all his teasing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duck said. But Percy was worried. He went to look for his friend. He found Thomas all alone in the shed.
  • Percy: Are you all right, Thomas?
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Thomas: Yes. I'm sorry I teased you, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas said.
  • Thomas: Duck was right. We all feel scared sometimes.
  • Percy: And we all have to say sorry sometimes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his friend.
  • Percy: So come on, Thomas, we can watch the fireworks just as well from here.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.

  • (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.

  • 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.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin A Bad Day For Harold)
  • Alec Baldwin: Harold the Helicopter loves flying up in a bright blue sky, over the Island of Sodor, he looks out for anyone in distress. Sometimes he delivers the mail. This made Percy very cross.
  • Harold: The mail run is done. Is there anymore? I can deliver it for you in a jiff. That's what friends are for.
  • Percy: Delivering the mail is an engine's job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy grumpily. Percy has many jobs but carrying the mail is his favorite. It makes him feel really useful. The next morning, Percy was happily pulling the mail train.
  • Percy: Must be on time, must be on time.
  • Alec Baldwin: He chuffed. But up ahead, there was trouble with the signal box. It was broken. The signal engineers did not know how long it would take to fix. Percy had to stop. It's not safe for engines to run without signals but Percy was very upset.
  • Percy: I'm going to be late.
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Percy: And it's not even my fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt was in his office enjoying his toast and marmalade when he heard the news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Percy is stuck at a broken signal. Then Harold must take the mail.
  • Alec Baldwin: Poor Percy was still waiting and still upset. The last time he was held up the mail was given to Harold.
  • Percy: It made me feel like a really useless engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: He sighed.
  • Driver: Well, the mail must arrive on time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. Just then they heard a familiar sound coming from above.
  • Harold: Hello.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Harold.
  • Harold: Sir Topham Hatt says you need my help. That's what friends are for.
  • Percy: Oh, no.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. But Sir Topham Hatt had made up his mind. There was nothing Percy could do. Percy's driver helped load the mail bags into Harold's cargo net.
  • Harold's Pilot: Maybe we should take the mail bags a few at a time.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Harold's pilot.
  • Harold's Pilot: They're very heavy.
  • Harold: I have to make too many trips then I'd be as slow as Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: And so they loaded all the mail into Harold's net at once and the engineer continued to work on the signal. Just as they finished loading a signal engineer cried out.
  • Signal Engineer: It's fixed.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Percy: Wait, Harold!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted Percy.
  • Percy: I'm ready to go!
  • Alec Baldwin: But it was too late. Harold had already taken off. Percy watched the mail disappear. He was upset. But then they all heard a strange sound.
  • Harold's Pilot: Watch out for those trees, Harold!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried his pilot.
  • Harold: My net is too heavy!
  • Alec Baldwin: Wailed Harold.
  • Percy: Harold is in trouble!
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy cried.
  • Percy: We must try to help him.
  • (Harold crashed into a haystack)
  • (Percy
  • Percy: Are you all right?
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Percy.
  • Harold: Just get someone to put me out of this haystack!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sputtered Harold and Percy did as fast as he could. The next day, Harold's engine was fixed and he was flying again. Percy was very pleased to see him.
  • Percy: Want to take the mail, Harold?
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy teased.
  • Percy: I'll stand by with the rescue team.
  • Alec Baldwin: All the engines tooted and Harold hovered so low that only Percy could hear.
  • Harold: Thanks for getting to pull me out that haystack, my friend.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Percy: That's all right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: That's what friends are for.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Little Engines)
  • Children: (singing) Main Line Engines always boast how big they are, Superior by far. But Little Engines toil away from dawn to dusk, Without a fuss or care. Just because we're small doesn't mean we don't stand tall, And we pull our weight like all the others do. You'll be surprised, in spite of their size, Just what little engines can do! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Bigger Engines say little engines play all day, And they're not much use to anyone at all. But we're strong enough to deal with those trucks, That's what little engines are for! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Thomas, Percy, Bill and Ben, You can rely on them, These little engines are the best! Stepney, Duck, and Oliver, They'll give the trucks what for, You'll be so impressed. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. They're our favourite little engines, They're mighty little engines! They're not such little engines after all! They're not such little engines after all!

  • Thomas: Last one there puffs hot air.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Thomas. Thomas was nearly at the station. As he drew near the plane field, a signalman flagged him down. Now Thomas was really cross. Bertie was sure to win. Then he saw Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, the sports day medals have been left in my office. You must fetch them at once. We can't let the children down.
  • Thomas: Of course not, sir.

  • Bertie: I won!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Bertie.
  • Bertie: I won!
  • Michael Brandon: And he waited eagerly for Thomas. He waited and waited. But Thomas had forgotten about the race. He was thinking about the children.
  • Thomas: I can't let them down, I can't let them down.
  • Michael Brandon: At last, Thomas puffed back into the big station. The stationmaster gave Thomas' driver the box of medals. Then, Thomas set off again. He arrived just in time.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Percy's Seaside Trip)
  • (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!
