Show Off Spencer is a fan-fiction episode.
Spencer boasts to Gordon about being the fastest and the sleekest engine on Sodor, but Gordon tells him that the Express is the fastest train in the world. Spencer just laughs at him and tells him that he is a slowcoach, which makes Gordon cross. The Fat Controller tells Spencer that he is to take the Duke and Duchess of Boxford to a special lunch at Maron Station. The Duke and Duchess climb on Spencer's carriage, and Spencer sets off.
On his way to Maron Station, Spencer goes up Gordon's hill and calls to Gordon puffing by with the express (with Edward as his back engine), telling him that he is a big slow Engine. This makes Gordon upset. Edward tells Gordon to pay no attention to Spencer, as Spencer is nothing more than a big bossy boiler.
After the Duke and Duchess finish their lunch at Maron Station, Spencer decides to show them how fast he can go, so he starts to pick up speed. Although Spencer is proud of being the fastest engine in the world, he passes by several engines who think he is being very boastful and bossy.
The next day, when Spencer has to take the Duke and Duchess to their boat, They warn Spencer to go a little slowly. Spencer thinks that as a splendid silver engine, he shouldn't have to go slow. After he drops the Duke and Duchess off on their boat, Spencer decides to pick up speed. He starts going faster and thinks the rest of the engines are slow. He passes by Thomas, who warns him that the line ahead is dangerous, but Spencer pays no attention to Thomas, and doesn't see the points are switched to a disused siding which hasn't been used for years. He swerves into it by accident, starts crashing through some buffers, and comes off the rails, also damaging his piston rods in the process.
Sir Topham Hatt arrives onboard Gordon, who brings Rocky to put Spencer on a flatbed so he can take him to the Sodor Steamworks to be repaired. Sir Topham Hatt is very cross with Spencer for being a show-off to the other engines and disobeying the Duke and Duchess. He asks Gordon if after he brings Spencer to the Steamworks, he would be interested in being the Duke and Duchess' engine for the rest of the day. Gordon is happy to, and gives the Duke and Duchess a wonderful time.
