  • Mai: See, i told you.
  • Bloo: Do you know about visitors from Scotland.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Of course, Bloo. Donald and Douglas came to visit. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and Donald and Douglas starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Donald and Douglas are twins and had arrived from Scotland to help Sir Topham Hatt, but only one engine had been expected. The twins meant well, but did cause confusion. Sir Topham Hatt had given them numbers, Donald 9 and Douglas 10, but he was still planning to send one engine home. There was a break van in the yard that had taken a dislike to Douglas. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Douglas began to worry. Donald, his twin, was angry.
  • Donald: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Donald.
  • Donald: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Break Van: You can't!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said the break van.
  • Break Van: I'm essential!
  • Donald: Och are you?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Donald burst out.
  • Donald: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Douggie, would ya? Take that!
  • Break Van: Ow! Ooh!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Cried the van.
  • Donald: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The van behave better after that. Until one day, Donald had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time. Donald wasn't hurt, but Sir Topham Hatt was most annyoed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I am disappointed, Donald. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Douglas back and keep you.
  • Donald: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Donald.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now James will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. James won't like that.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sir Topham Hatt was right. James grumbled dreadfully about extra work.
  • Douglas: Anyone would think.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Douglas.
  • Douglas: That Donald had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about an engine and some tar wagons.
  • James: Shut up!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said James.
  • James: It's not funny.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Donald: Well, well, well! Surely, James, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: James didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Break Van: James is cross!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sniggered the spiteful break van.
  • Break Van: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Cars: Hold back!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Giggled the freight cars to each other. James did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Edward's station. Luckily, Douglas was there.
  • James: Help me up the hill, please!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Panted James.
  • James: These freight cars are playing tricks.
  • Douglas: We'll show them.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Douglas. Slowly but surely, the snorting engines forced the freight cars up the hill. But James was losing steam.
  • James: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Douglas: Leave it to me!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Shouted Douglas. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady! The van's breaking!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The van was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Edward came to clear the mess. Sir Topham Hatt was board.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I might have known it would be Douglas.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He said.
  • Edward: Douglas was grand, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Edward.
  • Edward: James had no steam left, but Douglas worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Two would have been enough.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want to be fair, Douglas, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sir Topham Hatt was making up his mind about which engine to send away, but that's another story.
  • (Donald and Douglas ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: So you see, Donald and Douglas were new to Sodor.
  • Meilin: Oh please, this isn't the right answer.
  • Lexi: You'd be leaving right?
  • The Conductors: Right.
  • (The Conductors disappear)
  • Krystal: I'll be ready for my performance.
  • Rogue: Good.
  • (Inside the Jukebox)
  • Tito: I'll sing The More We Get Together.
  • Didi: You're on.
  • Tex: Ye know what Tito says?
  • Rex: We'll get to work together.
  • Grace: Let's hit it, guys.
  • (Tito performs The More We Get Together, with the rest doing the instruments)
  • Tito: The more we get together, Together, together, The more we get together, The happier we'll be. For your friends are my friends, And my friends are your friends, The more we get together, The happier we'll be. (Repeat)
  • (The More We Get Together ends)
  • (Back with Schemer, Schemee and The Thug Dolls)
  • Schemer: A singing session?
  • Schemee: Bah!
  • Thug Pooh: We don't like everything.
  • Thug Tigger: This stinks.
  • Thug Piglet: Let's get out of here.
  • (Soon)
  • Hasbeena: Okay, ladies and gentlemen. Let's give it a hand to Krystal singing Donald's Duck.
  • (The crowd claps in joy as Krystal performs Donald's Duck)
  • Krystal (singing): I found a quacker in my tender. She was very, very tame. But she quacked all night and through the day. She was driving me insane. My driver and my fireman tried everything they know to shoo the quacker away from me but she did not want to go. The quacker clearly loves me was impossible to nab. So now we have befriended her. She rides inside my cab. She quacks in stations big and small. She quacks at people too. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She is quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. Now everybody loves her. They love to hear her quack. But when we have to say goodbye, they ask when she'll be back. She's captured everybody's heart. She knows just what to do. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but she's my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. She's my quackeroo, she's my quackeroo.
  • (Donald's Duck ends)
  • Krystal: (as the crowd claps in joy) Thank you, everyone. Come again soon.
  • Rogue: She did it. Krystal sang it.
  • Raye: All right.
  • Stacy: We're so proud of you, Krystal.
  • Harry: Now your parents will be pleased.
  • Billy: As long as they'll arrive.
  • Krystal: I do remember now.
  • (The Conductors reappear)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Way to go.
  • Mel: You're back, Conductors.
  • Penny: We were having fun.
  • Mr. Conductor 2: You sure do.
  • Mai: I don't remember everything.
  • Bloo: And Donald and Douglas?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They really had a deputation to remember. Let me explain.
  • (Mr. Conductor 1 blows his whistle and The Deputation starts)
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Snow came early to the Island of Sodor. It was heavier than usual. Most engines hate snow. Donald and Douglas were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Henry: Help, help!
  • Douglas: Losh shakes, Donald! It's Henry!
  • Donald: Don't worry yourself, Henry! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Henry was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The twins were looking glum. They told him Sir Topham Hatt was making a decision.
  • Donald: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Percy: It's a shame.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Percy.
  • Gordon: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Grumbled Gordon.
  • James: That spiteful break van too.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Put in James.
  • James: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Henry: The twins were splendid in the snow.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Added Henry.
  • Henry: It isn't fair.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Percy decided to talk to Edward about it.
  • Edward: What you need...
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Edward.
  • Edward: a deputation.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He explained what that was. Percy ran back quickly.
  • Percy: Edward says we need a depostation.
  • Gordon: Of course.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: The question is...
  • Henry: What is a desperation?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Henry.
  • Percy: It's when engines tell Sir Topham Hatt something's wrong.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Percy.
  • Duck: Did you say tell Sir Topham Hatt?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Asked Duck thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Gordon: I purpose.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That Percy be
  • Percy: Me?!
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Squeaked Percy.
  • Percy: I can't!
  • Henry: Rubbish, Percy.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Henry.
  • Henry: It's easy.
  • Gordon: That's settled then.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Said Gordon. Poor Percy wished it wasn't.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hello, Percy. It's nice to be back.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Percy jumped.
  • Percy: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You look nervous, Percy. What's the matter?
  • Percy: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sir Topham Hatt pondered.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you mean a deputation, Percy?
  • Percy: Yes sir, please sir. It's Donald and Douglas. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be turned to scrap, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Please, sir, don't send them away.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thank you, Percy. That will do.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Later, Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings and I give a lot of thought to the matter.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: He paused impressively.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Donald and Douglas, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Mr. Conductor 1: The twins were surprised.
  • Donald: Thank you, sir.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Douglas: Thank you, sir. Uh, does this mean that the both of us?
  • Mr. Conductor 1: Sir Topham Hatt smiled.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It means...
  • Mr. Conductor 1: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The twins were here to stay.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • (The Deputation ends)
  • Mr. Conductor 1:
