Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (We then show the Thomas Season 5 intro and we afterwards begin Thomas' Christmas Party)
  • George Carlin: It was Christmas on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were working hard. Thomas and Toby were busy carrying people and parcels up and down the branch line. Everyone was happy. Only the coaches Annie and Clarabel were complaining.
  • Annie and Clarabel: It's always the same before Christmas.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Annie and Clarabel: We feel so full, we feel so full.
  • Thomas: Oh, come on!
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Where's your festive spirit? Christmas day is almost here.
  • George Carlin: By the side of the track was a little cottage with a familiar figure waving to them.
  • Thomas: It's Mrs. Kyndley!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Peep, peep! Happy christmas!
  • George Carlin: Thomas always felt better for seeing her.
  • Thomas: Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without Mrs. Kyndley.
  • George Carlin: He said to himself. When work was over, Thomas went to see the other engines. All their coats had been polished.
  • Gordon: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: Just look at us. Your driver will have to work fast to get you as smart as us.
  • Thomas: Never mind that.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: I've something important to say. Do you realize it's been a whole year since Mrs. Kyndley saved us from a nasty accident. You remember when she was ill in bed and...
  • Edward: Yes of course.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Edward.
  • Edward: You told us how she waved her red dressing gown out of her window to warn you about a landslide ahead.
  • Percy: And you and Toby gave her presents.
  • George Carlin: Percy joined in.
  • Percy: And Sir Topham Hatt sent her to the seaside to get better.
  • James and Henry: But...
  • George Carlin: Said the other engines.
  • James and Henry: The rest of us never thanked her properly.
  • Thomas: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: So now I think we should all give her a special Christmas party.
  • George Carlin: Everyone was getting very excited and the drivers felt sure that Sir Topham Hatt will agree as indeed he did. The engines were all busy making plans, when silence fell. Sir Topham Hatt had bad news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The weather's changed badly. Mrs. Kyndley is snowed up. Toby says he'll help to rescue her. You must help too, Thomas. There's no party unless you do.
  • George Carlin: Thomas hated snow, but he said bravely.
  • Thomas: I'll try, sir. We must rescue her, we must.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's a good engine. You and Toby will manage splendidly.
  • George Carlin: Thomas charged the snowdrifts fiercely. Sometimes he swept them aside, sometimes they stuck fast and the men had to loosen them. But at the cutting near the cottage, they could go no further.
  • Thomas' Fireman: Look at that!
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Thomas' fireman.
  • Thomas: Peep, peep! Here we are.
  • George Carlin: An answering wave came from an upstairs window. Then they heard a familiar sound.
  • Thomas: That's Terence the Tractor.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's come to help too.
  • George Carlin: Sure enough, Terence had a snowplough and was working hard to clear a patch to the railroad line to safety. At long last, the rescue was complete. Percy took the tired workmen home. Terence said goodbye to Mrs. Kyndley and promised to take care of her cottage as he watched them all set off. The engines made good time. No more snow had fallen, but the yard was dark. There was no one to be seen. Thomas' heart sank. Suddenly, all the lights went on. What a marvelous site awaited Mrs. Kyndley.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm really proud of you all.
  • George Carlin: Mrs. Kyndley especially thanked the smaller engines.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: Thomas and Toby are old friends.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: And now Percy, you are my friend too.
  • George Carlin: Percy was very pleased.
  • Percy: Three cheers for Mrs. Kyndley!
  • George Carlin: He called.
  • Percy: Peep, peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: They all whistled.
  • Engines: (singing) We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
  • George Carlin: Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends thought it was the best Christmas ever and Mrs. Kyndley could think of nowhere should rather live than here with them on the Island of Sodor.

  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Buffer Bother)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben are quarry engines. They are twins. They play together, they shunt freight cars together. They even get up to naughtyness together. Whenever you find Bill you will find Ben. Whether you find Ben you will find Bill. Sir Topham Hatt had come to inspect his quarry engines. He found that Mavis and Bill were in fine working order.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Unfortunately, Ben.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your buffers are damaged. You must report to the engine works inmediately for a new set of buffers. Mavis you will have to work with Bill until Ben returns.
  • Mavis: Yes sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis and Sir Topham Hatt drove away. Ben was happy.
  • Ben: I'm going to get new buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: He gloated to Bill.
  • Bill: Well I should get new buffers too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill complained.
  • Bill: We're twins. We do everything together.
  • Ben: But you don't need new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben teased.
  • Bill: You're getting new buffers because you're getting clumsy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill enviously.
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Ben: No I'm not!
  • Bill: Yes you are!
  • Mavis: Will you two stop being crackpots?
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis scolded.
  • Mavis: Now come on, Bill, we've got work to do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben couldn't wait to get new buffers. Later, Bill watched as Ben chuffed away to the engine works. He was green with envy, he wanted new buffers too. Bill returned to his job but he wasn't thinking about work. All he could think about was Ben's new buffers.
  • Bill: Ooh!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: (sneezes)
  • Mavis: Be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Mavis: And stop thinking about Ben's new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill tried thinking about birds, he tried thinking about trees, he tried thinking about anything but Ben and his brand new buffers. But it didn't work.
  • Bill: I want new buffers too!
  • Alec Baldwin: He cried.
  • Mavis: Just be happy you're in good working order.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Mavis.
  • Bill: It's not fair!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill huffed and he wheeshed soot all over Mavis.
  • Mavis: Bill!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped Mavis.
  • Bill: Oops, sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill. Bill tried his best to get with his work. But the troublesome trucks have spotted a chance for a tease.
  • Trucks: Poor poor Bill, he works, he suffers, while Ben his twin gets brand new buffers!
  • Bill: I might not have new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: He said.
  • Bill: But I still know how to biff troublesome trucks.
  • Mavis: No!
  • Alec Baldwin: Mavis cried. But it was too late. Ben puffed into the quarry with his shiny new buffers just in time to hear...
  • Bill: Bust my buffers!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Bill.
  • Ben: I think you have.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben. When Sir Topham Hatt arrived and saw Bill's broken buffers, he was not happy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You behaved badly Bill.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Do you have anything to say for yourself?
  • Bill: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Before you get new buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt continued.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I want you to think what it means to be a responsible reliable engine.
  • Bill: Yes Sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Answered Bill weakly. After Sir Topham Hatt left, Ben rolled up to Bill with his new buffers gleaming.
  • Bill: They are nice buffers.
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill said.
  • Ben: Thanks.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ben said.
  • Ben: I'm sorry I teased you.
  • Bill: That's all right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bill.
  • Bill: I was naughty too.
  • Ben: Of course you are.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ben.
  • Ben: We're twins.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin There Once Was An Engine Who Ran Away)
  • Man: (singing) There once was an engine who ran away, Just up and went, And ran away, ran away. Stacked up his tender, and headed down the line, Toot toot, farewell, goodbye!
  • Children: (singing) He overheard the wicked old Diesel say, He was heading for the scrapyard any day.
  • Man: (singing) He didn't wanna wait for the fateful day. So the little old engine ran away.
  • Children: (singing) He huffed and he puffed, his wheels started turning, He chuffed and he chuffed, his little firebox burning, He slipped his brake, let his whistle fly, Toot toot, farewell, goodbye!
  • Children and Man (singing) And the little old engine ran away, Just up and went, And ran away, ran away.
  • Man: (singing) Didn't feel part of the railway.
  • Children and Man: (singing) So the little old engine ran away.
  • (Owl hoots)
  • Children: (singing) And when the other engines heard he'd gone, They felt so sad, 'cos they knew he had gone and gone. No matter what Diesel had to say, Sir Topham Hatt has the final say.
  • Man: (singing) So he thought and he thought, Where could he be, could he be?
  • Children: (singing) Some searched high, the others searched low.
  • Children and Man: (singing) Where did he run, where did he run? We gotta bring the little engine home.
  • Man: (singing) So they all went out to look around, Far and wide, and up and down No matter where they searched, no one seemed to know.
  • Children and Man (singing) Oh where did the little old engine go? Thomas finally tracked him down, He was cold and blue, and all alone.
  • Man: He told him he was needed back urgently.
  • Boy: "Who me, really?"
  • Girl: "Yes you, you silly engine!"
  • Children and Man: (singing) 'Cos he's the pride of the railway!
  • Man: (singing) So he huffed and he puffed, His wheels started turning, He chuffed and he chuffed his little firebox burning, He slipped his brake and was on his way, Toot toot, hip hip, hooray!
  • Children and Man: (singing) Now the little old engine's heading home, To toots and cheers, hear the whistles blow. 'Cos now he's the pride of the railway!
  • Girl: "Look everybody! Here comes Fergus!"
  • Children: "Hooray!"
  • Children and Man: (singing) Yes the little old engine's coming home!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin What's The Matter With Henry?)
  • Michael Brandon: It was the end of a busy day. The engines have been working hard. They were feeling pleased and proud, except Henry. He was feeling ill.
  • Thomas: What's the matter with you, Henry?
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas asked.
  • Henry: My boiler's grumbling.
  • Thomas: Maybe it's grumbling at you.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas.
  • Henry: That's not funny.
  • Michael Brandon: Hissed Henry.
  • Henry: You just don't care.
  • Michael Brandon: But Emily saw that Henry was leaving a puddle of water behind. She was worried. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, Percy, Henry, i want you to collect some freight cars and take them to the docks.
  • Thomas and Percy: Yes sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas and Percy. Henry watched the engines puff away. He didn't feel well.
  • Henry: Useful engines don't complain.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry muttered. He was leaving water everywhere as he chuffed towards the coaling plant. When Emily saw this she was more worried than ever. Then, Thomas and Percy overtook Henry.
  • Percy: Hurry up, Henry!
  • Michael Brandon: Percy tooted.
  • Henry: I can't go any faster.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry chuffed miserably.
  • Thomas: You're just being lazy.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas. By the time Thomas and Percy reached the coaling plant, they had a naughty plan.
  • Thomas: Please sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Henry wants to take more freight cars.
  • Percy: He is bigger.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Percy. The yard manager agreed. Meanwhile, Emily was talking to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Emily: I'm worried about Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmm, perhaps his tubes are leaking.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You better check.
  • Michael Brandon: By the time Henry reached the coaling plant, Thomas and Percy had already left.
  • Henry: Why did Thomas and Percy leave me so many freight cars?
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Henry.
  • Henry: They know I'm not feeling well.
  • Henry's Driver: We'll still have to take them.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Henry chuffed and puffed and pulled his long line of freight cars.
  • Henry's Driver: You can do it, Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: Encouraged his driver. But it was no use. Henry ground to a halt. Just then, Emily arrived.
  • Emily: Are you all right, Henry?
  • Henry: No.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Henry.
  • Henry: I'm stuck.
  • Michael Brandon: Henry's fireman uncoupled the freight cars. Emily changed tracks and then hooked up to Henry.
  • Henry: Oh, thank you, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Henry. Emily and Henry puffed into the docks.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Emily.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Emily: Thank you sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Then he spoke to Henry.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You were brave Henry. You aren't well, but you still tried to pull the heavy freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Percy felt ashamed.
  • Thomas: We're sorry, Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Percy: We didn't think you were really sick.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Percy.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Go back and collect Henry's freight cars.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt sternly.
  • Thomas: Yes, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Whispered Thomas. Soon, Henry was mended and back at work.
  • Emily: You're looking so much better.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Henry: Well they mended my tubes. But they didn't even look at my brakes, my gauges, my squeaky wheels.
  • Michael Brandon: Emily smiled.
  • Emily: All in good time, Henry.
  • Michael Brandon: Poor Henry.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Down By The Docks)
  • Children: (singing) Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Salty! Chief Diesel at the docks, He's the tough guy. He's the one who sorts the trucks. He's the one to see, in emergencies... He's the one to see. Tirelessly working, never complaining, Part of the dockside team... Cranky! Looking down on everyone, Always working. Lifting cargo by the ton. And he's up so high, he can reach the sky... Part of the dockside team. Whatever the weather, you'll see him out there, Part of the dockside team... Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Sailors! Who have crossed the seven seas, Sailing homeward. Bringing all and sundry. And the trade winds blow their ships back home... Safely to the shore. We are the workers, stoking the boilers Of Sodor's industry... Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Down by the dockside, down by the dockside Down by the dockside, is where we want to be.
