Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Season 7 intro, and finally the start of The Runaway Elephant)
  • Michael Brandon: The engines on the Island of Sodor were excited. A new park was being built. Everyone was working hard to get the job finished on time. Duncan was feeling impatient.
  • Duncan: Get a move on slow coach.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed crossly to Rusty.
  • Duncan: You're so slow I finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He boasted to Skarloey. Skarloey was cross. A little later, he met Rusty at the new park station.
  • Skarloey: Duncan thinks he's fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey steamed.
  • Skarloey: But he's just a bossy boiler.
  • Rusty: Better safe and fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty agreed. Duncan drove into the station. He was all puffed up and pleased with himself.
  • Duncan: I've finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed proudly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: In that case.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I got another job for you. You are to collect the elephant from the sidings and take it to the park.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This elephant is very important. You must be very careful.
  • Michael Brandon: When Duncan saw the elephant, he was surprised.
  • Duncan: Why it's only a statue.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Duncan: This is an easy job.
  • Stationmaster: You must wait for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: The statue is very heavy.
  • Duncan: Nonsense.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Duncan to his driver.
  • Duncan: I pushed heavier loads than this plenty of time.
  • Duncan's Driver: Let's go, Duncan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: But we must be careful.
  • Michael Brandon: So they left, but without the brakevan. But Duncan wasn't careful. He was impatient.
  • Duncan: We'll show them how fast I can be.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan whistled.
  • Duncan: We'll deliver this statue and I'll still finish first.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan started to speed up. Soon, Duncan was going as fast as his wheels could carry him. His driver was starting to worry. So he tried to brake. But Duncan was out of control. He was scared. He had never gone this fast. People waved and cars tooted as Duncan sped by. Suddenly, a tractor trundled across Duncan's line.
  • Duncan's Driver: Look out!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted his driver.
  • Rusty: Slow down, slow down!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Rusty.
  • Duncan: I can't!
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan cried as he shot past.
  • Duncan: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Elephant park loomed ahead. Duncan's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. The statue flew into the air and landed in the lake. Luckily, nobody was hurt. In no time, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. He was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I told you to be careful. You shouldn't waited for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Duncan: I'm sorry, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Mumbled Duncan. He felt very embarrassed. Duncan was repaired again in time for the grand opening. He was still surprised to see the elephant standing in the lake.
  • Lady Hatt: Everyone loves the elephant in the lake.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Lady Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Even if it was a mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Engines: Hooray for Duncan's mistake!
  • Michael Brandon: Cheered the engines. Duncan blushed and went a deep shade red.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Gets Bumped)
  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Thomas the Tank Engine puffs along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Thomas coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Thomas was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Percy the Green Engine was waiting, too.
  • Percy: Hurry up, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Called Percy when the signal dropped.
  • Percy: If you're late, Sir Topham Hatt might get a new engine to replace you.
  • Thomas: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas, but he was worried. Next day, Thomas hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Thomas saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Thomas: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Thomas, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Thomas' driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Thomas waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Bertie was waiting to take them home. When Thomas finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Sir Topham Hatt might be cross with him.
  • Percy: I warned Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy to James.
  • Percy: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Thomas pick up his passengers, Sir Topham Hatt was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Thomas looks around and finds nothing)
  • Thomas: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas. Thomas knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Thomas' Driver: Careful, Thomas!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Thomas falls off the rails)
  • Thomas' Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Thomas: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Thomas had to shunt freight cars in the yard. Bertie came to see him.
  • Bertie: I understand you need my help again.
  • Thomas: Yes, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Bertie set off to collect Thomas' passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Bertie drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Thomas felt miserable.
  • Thomas: I've lost my passengers to Bertie. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Bertie can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Thomas reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Bertie is a good bus, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Thomas spoke to Bertie.
  • Thomas: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Bertie: That's all right, Thomas. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Thomas: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And always will be.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin It's Great To Be An Engine)
  • Children: (singing) Oh yes, it's great To be an engine And go steaming along, Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along All day.We're all so proud to be Famous engines And travel through the countryside. We're always brave when There are hills to climb. No mountain is too high! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as Your wheels go round Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. It doesn't matter Come rain or shine. There are always things For us to do. And in the cold cold Wintertime, We're ready. When you light the fire And stoke the boiler And we'll be there for you! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Feel the wind around you As you push along. Puff puff puffing along All day.
  • Girl: Just think - how wonderful it would be. To live on the magical Island of Sodor, Helping Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends All day long, It would be like a dream come true. If only I could be an engine too...
  • Children: (singing) Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as your Wheels go round. Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. Oh yes it's great To be an engine And go steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping and Puff puff puffing Steam around all day!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Edward's Brass Band)
  • Michael Brandon: Summer is a busy time on the Island of Sodor. Vacationers have so much to see and do. There are trips to the seaside, balloon rides in the country and the brass band playing in the park. One morning, Edward was in a hurry. He didn't even stop to say hello to Stepney. Thomas was pleased to see Edward.
  • Thomas: What's up? Your smile's as broad as your smokebox.
  • Edward: I'm on my way to pick up the brass band.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Edward.
  • Edward: The concert is tomorrow night.
  • Thomas: Don't crack your smokebox.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas. Edward couldn't wait to hear the brass band play their wonderful music. He was so excited about meeting the brass band that he didn't notice the giant crane. It was unloading a huge ship's boiler. Suddenly, the crane swung the boiler and knocked Edward right off the track. Cranky had been watching.
  • Cranky: You useless little engines are always in the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Poor Edward. Sir Topham Hatt came inmediately.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We will take you to the fitters yard and Bertie will have to meet the brass band instead of you.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward was sad. That night a raging storm rolled in. The fitters worked through the night trying to mend Edward. The rain pelted down. Now Edward felt sad and very dammed. Morning came and Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Edward: Please sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Pleaded Edward.
  • Edward: Will the fitters be finished soon?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not soon enough and the band can't wait. I'm sorry Edward, Bertie will take them to the concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward felt worse than ever. Bertie collected the brass band and set off inmediately. He bummed cheerfully along the country roads. But there was trouble ahead. Last night, storm had flooded the road. Bertie's driver decided to take a shortcut. But it was very muddy. Bertie's wheels did not like the mud. They scooted, they skated, they slid, they slipped.
  • Bertie: I'm stuck!
  • Michael Brandon: He groaned.
  • Bertie: (grunts)
  • Michael Brandon: Bertie revved his engine, but his wheels spun round and round. He couldn't budge. The brass band were worried.
  • Leader: We musn't be late for our concert. Tune up your tuba.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the leader of the band.
  • Leader: We'll call for help.
  • Michael Brandon: By now Edward was mended and hooked up to his coaches.
  • Edward's Driver: I can hear music.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Edward: That's not music.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Edward.
  • Edward: That's an alarm.
  • Michael Brandon: And they raced off to the rescue. The musicians were delighted to see their old friend, so was Bertie.
  • Edward: I'll get you to the concert in time!
  • Michael Brandon: Edward cried.
  • Bandsmen: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the worried bandsmen. That night, the concert was a great sucess. Everyone loved the music, especially Edward.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby)
  • Children: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old train, a little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she's seen better days. His mind keeps returning to the good old days. When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby. What will become of you? The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's still lots that you can do. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. All of the children came to say goodbye. They clapped and cheered as Toby rang his bell, "Bye-bye." Everyone was sad to see them go. Whatever will they do, and where will they go? Suddenly news came to brighten up their day. How Toby and Henrietta were needed right away. The Fat Controller had written to say, could they please come and help right away. Now they're part of his family forever. Toby, oh Toby. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.
