  • Min: Mr. Conductors 1, 2 and 3.
  • Shawn: Thank goodness you came too.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: That's correct. In fact, we're going to be in a royal party.
  • Shaggy: Wow, like, you've heard it.
  • Rikochet: Do you know about your friend Thomas the Tank Engine?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Yes, Rikochet. He had his very first day. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Thomas Gets Tricked starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas is a tank engine who lives at the big station of the Island of Sodor. He's a cheeky little engine with six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler and a short stumpy dome. He's a fussy little engine too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big engines can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big engines can go on rest. Thomas thinks no engine works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Gordon the biggest and proudest engine of all. Thomas likes to tease Gordon with his whistle.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: One day after pulling the big express, Gordon had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Thomas came up in his cheeky way.
  • Thomas: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: And off he ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Gordon thought how he can back at Thomas. One morning, Thomas wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Thomas started.
  • Thomas: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Gordon was waiting.
  • Gordon: Hurry up, you!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Gordon.
  • Thomas: Hurry up yourself.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Replied Thomas. Gordon the proud engine began making his plan to teach Thomas a lesson for teasing him. Almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Gordon reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Gordon: Get in quickly, please!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He whistled. Thomas usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Gordon start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Thomas. Gordon's chance had come.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Puffed Gordon to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Thomas, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Thomas: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Gordon: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed Gordon.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed the coaches. Poor Thomas was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his wheels hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Thomas: I shall never be the same again.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He though sadly.
  • Thomas: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: At last, they stopped at the station. Thomas was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Gordon: Well, little Thomas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Chuckled Gordon.
  • Gordon: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Poor Thomas couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink.
  • Thomas: Maybe I don't have to tease Gordon to feel important.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thomas thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.
  • (Thomas Gets Tricked ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So you see, Thomas learned not to be cheeky to Gordon.
  • Michael: Oh that's worse.
  • Shawn: You'd be leaving right?
  • The Conductors: Right.
  • (The Conductors disappear)
  • Ash: Let's all be in a royal play.
  • Barney: Good idea, Ash.
  • (Inside the Jukebox)
  • Tito: I'll be ready to sing Just Imagine.
  • Didi: You do.
  • Tex: Ye know what they say?
  • Rex: Our first Barney song.
  • Grace: Let's hit it, guys.
  • (Tito performs Just Imagine with Didi, Tex, Rex and Grace doing the intruments)
  • Tito: Just imagine, just imagine Just imagine all the things that we could be Imagine all the places we could go and see Imagination's fun for you and me We could go to the moon in a great big balloon Build a castle by playing pretend We could even explore with a big dinosaur Or make rainbows that never end Just imagine, just imagine Just imagine all the things that we could be Imagine all the places we could go and see Imagination's fun for you and me We could go anywhere We can be anyone We can do it quite easily too We just play let's pretend and we know in the end, that it's so much fun to do Just imagine, just imagine Just imagine all the things that we could be Imagine all the places we could go and see Imagination's fun for you and me. Imagination's fun for you and me.
  • (Just Imagine ends)
  • (Back with the gang, they are having a royal party)
  • Ash: We're kings of the neverland.
  • Barney: We do.
  • Ally: I look like Princess Peach.
  • Zoe: You like your long white gloves.
  • Shaggy: Like, we're paupers.
  • Rikochet: Exactly.
  • Michael: Me and Shawn are also paupers too.
  • Shawn: Of course.
  • Mary: I'm a little princess.
  • Tina: I'm a queen.
  • Min: And I'm also a queen too.
  • Ash: Let's all celebrate our royal welcome.
  • All: Cheers.
  • (They both drink sodas)
  • (All of a sudden, knights appear in an invasion)
  • Ash: Blast my head!
  • Shaggy: Zoinks!
  • Ally: Who invited a crash in!?
  • Jessie: You're just too lucky.
  • Cliff: So prepare for trouble.
  • James: It's not gonna be easy.
  • Lube: So you might as well make it double.
  • Jessie: To protect the world from devastation.
  • Cliff: To conquer the world with devastation.
  • James: To unite all peoples within our nation.
  • Lube: To deny all peoples in every nation.
  • Jessie: To denounce the evils of truth and love.
  • Cliff: To denounce the madness of truth and love.
  • James: To extend our reach to the stars above.
  • Lube: To extend our struggle to the stars above.
  • Jessie: Jessie.
  • Cliff: Cliff.
  • James: James.
  • Lube: And Lube.
  • Jessie: Team Rocket blast off at the speed of light.
  • Cliff: We Greasers run off at every might.
  • James: Surrender now or prepare to fight.
  • Lube: You'd better surrender now or you'll make things tight.
  • Meowth: It's a knight to remember, losers!
  • Shriek: Oh yeah, baby!
  • Wobbuffet: Wobbuffet!
  • Ash: Team Rocket!
  • Rikochet: And The Greaser Dogs!
  • Barney: I remember you guys now, you're a group of thieves.
  • Jessie: Oh yes. We're here for an invasion.
  • Cliff: You know there will be a ruining.
  • James: We'd say it's our duty to take over.
  • Lube: And you'll be sorry.
  • Ally: Fine then. (she removes her heels, revealing her nyloned feet) Try this.
  • (Team Rocket and The Greasers get a bad smell from Ally's feet, and they dash off)
  • Team Rocket and The Greaser Dogs: We won't forgive this!
  • Shaggy: Like, you're a rich princess, Ally.
  • Ally: No problem.
  • (The Conductors reappear, dressed as Old King Cole Fiddlers)
  • Mr. Conductor 3: You did it, Ally.
  • Ally: Ah, thanks.
  • Zoe: She is clever to send Team Rocket and The Greasers packing.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: That's right.
  • Tina: Apart from other engines, do they know signals?
  • Min: You remember Percy, right?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Of course. He learned about signals. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Percy and The Signal starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Percy: Peep peep! Hurry up, Gordon, the train's ready.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Gordon thought he was late.
  • Percy: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Laughed Percy and showed him a train of dirty coal cars. Gordon thought how he can pay Percy back for teasing him. Next it was James' turn.
  • Percy: Stay in the shed today, James. Sir Topham Hatt will come and see you.
  • James: Ah!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Thought James.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt knows I'm a fine engine. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: James' driver and fireman could not make him move. The other engines grumbled dreadfully. They had to do James' work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, James. You can't stay here all day.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • James: Oh.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said James.
  • James: Oh, where's Percy?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy had wisely disappeared. When Sir Topham Hatt came back, he was cross with James and Percy for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Percy was still being cheeky.
  • Percy: I say, you engines, I'm to take some freight cars to Thomas' junction. Sir Topham Hatt chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful engine.
  • James: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Grumbled James. Gordon looked across to James. They were going to play a trick on Percy.
  • Gordon: James and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then i needn't say that to a really useful engine like you, Percy.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy felt flattered.
  • James: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Put in James.
  • James: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Percy: No thank you, James.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Percy.
  • Percy: I know all about signals.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy was a little worried.
  • Percy: I wonder what backing signals are.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He thought.
  • Percy: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He puffed crossly to his freight cars and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Percy: Bother, it's a danger.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The signal moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Percy had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Percy: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing signals.
  • Driver: Come on, Percy.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Percy: But it's a backing signal.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy protested and told him about Gordon and James. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Percy: Oh, dear.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He was too late. Gordon saw everything. That night, the big engines talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Percy thought they were being very silly.
  • (Percy and The Signal ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So you see, Percy had quite a mistake there.
  • Shaggy: Like, you're absolutely right.
  • Rikochet: You'd be leaving right?
  • The Conductors: Right.
  • (The Conductors disappear)
  • Barney: Well, it's time for us to part ways. Why don't we sing our song?
  • Ash: Good idea.
  • (They all perform I Love You)
  • Barney: I love you, you love me, we're a happy family, with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won't you say you love me too?
  • All: I love you, you love me, we're best friends like friends should be, with a great big hug and a kiss from me to you, won't you say you love me too?
  • (I Love You ends)
  • Ash: Bye, Barney.
  • Barney: Bye, Ash, bye everybody.
  • Mary and the rest: Bye for now, Barney.
  • (As they are gone, Barney appears as a toy and winks while The Conductors appear)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Well, that's a wrap.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: We'll see you in our next episode.
  • Mr. Conductor 3: So long, folks.
  • (The Conductors high 5 each other as the episode ends)
  • (The end credits then show still shots from this episode in a Mucha Lucha style)
  • (While they roll, the Barney and Friends end theme plays)
  • (After that, the 2006 It's A Laugh Productions logo, the 1993 Connecticut Public Television logo, and the Hanna Barbera All-Stars Action logo appear)
