Narrator: "Dr. Hooves and Tank used to work in Canterlot. Dr. Hooves never tired of telling the story of how they first came to Ponyville."
Dr. Hooves: "And then, there was that night of my daring escape from the scrapyard! Ha! What an adventure that was. Unbelievable!"
Tank: "I know, Mr. Hooves. I was there too. Remember? And I heard this story before."
Dr. Hooves: "Never before has a earth pony had such a narrow escape! The moon was full that night, and the wind was rustling in the trees. I weren't scared, though."
Narrator: "Dr. Hooves had told Tank the Tortoise the same story 100 times. Sometimes Tank wished he had his own adventure story to tell so that he didn't have to listen to Dr. Hooves' all the time."
Dr. Hooves: "Oh, yes! My escape from that scrapyard was probably the greatest escape anyone's ever had."
Narrator: "At the shunting yards, Dr. Hooves was unhooked from Tank, and given some buffaloes instead."
Dr. Hooves: "Bye, Tank. See you later. Nice talking to you."
Narrator: "Tank was happy not to listen to Dr. Hooves' stories for a while, but he didn't like the idea of sitting around doing nothing. He wanted an adventure all of his own."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pets. Huh! I don't know why I need a pet at all. I never have accidents."
Tank: "Please, Mr. Cranky. Hello. Did you say you needed a pet, sir? Perhaps I could help."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You? What's so special about you?"
Tank: "Well, ask anyone, sir. I love helping haul coal changelings, and my feet are strong, and... oh, please, Mr. Cranky!
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, all right. All right. Come along then. I haven't got all day."
Narrator: "So Tank was hooked up to Cranky. He was delighted to be heading off to the Everfree Forest."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I don't suppose you see splendid animals like me on your Little Pony line very often."
Tank: "No, sir, but..."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Did you know I am the brightest brown donkey in the whole town of Ponyville."
Tank: "Yes, sir. I can see that..."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You could travel for miles around and not find a better donkey than me."
Tank: "D-d-d-do we have to go so f-fast, Mr. Cranky?"
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm no slow coach! The sooner I get these changelings to the Everfree Forest, the sooner I can get back to working with buffaloes."
Tank: "Ooh! Ow!" (Coughs) "Please slow down, sir! This is d-d-dangerous. Dr. Hooves would never go this fast with a full load."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Nonsense! I know what I'm doing. I go this fast all the time."
Narrator: "As they approached Big Macintosh's hill, Cranky pumped his legs faster than ever. Tank decided he didn't want an adventure anymore."
Tank: "Oh, dear! Oh, dear me!"
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha-ha! You see, Tank? Nothing slows me down.
Tank: "Oh, mister Cranky! What was that?"
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We've hit a branch!
Stop the changelings!"
Tank: "I'm trying, Mr. Cranky! I'm trying!"
Narrator: "Spike was taking Hoity Toity and Mayor Mare to the mainland to go to the opera."
Mayor Mare: "I used to be quite the singer in my day. Would you like to hear me sing?"
Hoity Toity: Um, well, perhaps later."
Mayor Mare: "Ah-heh-heh-hem. Me, my, moo. Ah-ha-ha! Ahem. Loo, loo, loo, loo."
Spike: "Fire and scales!"
Mayor Mare: "Whoa!"
Hoity Toity: "Spike, why have we stopped?"
Spike: "Up ahead, sir! Look!"
Hoity Toity: "Spike, back up! Back up!"
Pipsqueak: "Spike, look out!"
Oh no! We're going to have a crash!"
Tank: (Gasps) "Oh no!"
Narrator: "Tank could see that Spike and Pipsqueak didn't have enough time to reverse and clear the path. Tank knew he had to save them all now."
Hoity Toity: "He's going to hit us!"
Narrator: "Tank had done it. He'd stop the coal changelings just in time. Everyone was very relieved."
Spike: "Well done, Tank!"
Tank: "Thank you, Mr. Spike. Just..." (Coughs) "doing my job."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Sorry, Spike. I lost my changelings on the hill. Is everyone all right?"
Hoity Toity: "No, Cranky. Everyone is not all right. You have caused confusion and delay. I demand to know how this happened!"
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Well, sir, the thing is, I was going too fast..."
Tank: "There was a fallen branch on the path, sir. It was nobody's fault. It was an accident."
Hoity Toity: "Oh, accident, eh? Well, um..."
Mayor Mare: "Sounds to me rather like this little tortoise saved us all from certain disaster. Wouldn't you agree?"
Hoity Toity: "Yes, I..." (Clears throat) "I suppose so."
Mayor Mare: "You are a really useful and very brave tortoise."
Hoity Toity: "Quite right. Um, well done, Tank. Carry on. Carry on. The opera awaits!"
Mayor Mare: "Oh-ho-ho! La-lo-lo-lo-lo, lee, lee, lee. Me, my, moo, moo."
Narrator: "Tank was still thinking about what Mayor Mare had said to him. He felt very proud."
Tank: "You can go a little faster if you like, Mr. Cranky."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, no. This will do. Thank you, Tank. Never too slow. Never too fast. That's what I always say.
Thanks for your help today, Tank."
Tank: "And thank you very much, sir."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Call me Cranky."
Tank: "Hello, Mr. Hooves. I..."
Dr. Hooves: "Hello, Tank! You'll never believe what happened to me today. Let me tell you all about it."
Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Actually, Dr. Hooves, I think you should ask Tank about the adventure he had today."
Dr. Hooves: "You, Tank? You had an adventure?"
Tank: "Well, yes, as it happens. It all started when I was hooked to Mr. Cranky, and he started to go a bit too fast. By the time we reached Big Macintosh's hill, we were going so fast, my feet were shaking!"
Dr. Hooves: "Well, that don't sound like much of an adventure, Tank."
Tank: "But that's not all. That's when we saw a branch had fallen on the line."
Dr. Hooves: "No!"
Tank: "Yes! And the thing was, we were going so fast we couldn't stop."
Dr. Hooves: (Gasps) "So, what happened next?"
Tank: "That's when it got really scary. Cranky couldn't stop."
Narrator: "And so Tank told everyone about his adventure on the main road. Dr. Hooves said he could hardly believe it, but Tank said that was okay. He'd tell him the whole story again tomorrow."
