Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (Then we see the Thomas and Friends Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: It's Thomas: number one engine who works with Sir Topham Hatt. Percy is very happy and he is really reliable. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most famous engine on the Island of Sodor. Here's Henry: the number three green engine. Edward always here to help the other engines. And don't forget Sir Topham Hatt. He's in charge of the whole railway.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Breaks The Rules)
  • George Carlin: There's the line to a quarry at the end of Thomas' branch. It goes to some distance along the road. Thomas was very careful to whistle here in case anyone was coming. Early one morning, a large policeman was sitting close to the line. Thomas liked policemen. He had been a great friend of the officer who had just retired.
  • Thomas: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Thomas: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Thomas expected that the new officer would be friendly too. But was sorry to see that he didn't look friendly at all. He was red in the face and very cross.
  • Policeman: Disgraceful!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered.
  • Policeman: I didn't sleep a wink last night. It was so quiet, and now engines come whistling suddenly behind me.
  • Thomas: I'm sorry, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I only said good morning.
  • George Carlin: The policeman pointed to Thomas.
  • Policeman: Where's your cowcatchers?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Thomas: But I don't catch cows, sir.
  • Policeman: Don't be funny.
  • George Carlin: Snapped the policeman. He looked at Thomas' wheels.
  • Policeman: No side plates either.
  • George Carlin: And he wrote in his notebook.
  • Policeman: Engines going on public roads must have their wheels covered and a cowcatcher in front to protect people and animals from being dragged under the wheels if they stray under the line. You haven't so you are dangerous.
  • Driver: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas' driver.
  • Driver: We've been along here hundreds of times and never had an accident.
  • Policeman: That makes it worse.
  • George Carlin: The policeman answered. He wrote Regular Law Breaker in his book. Thomas puffed sadly away. Sir Topham Hatt was having breakfast he was eating toast and marmalade. The butler came in.
  • Butler: Excuse me, sir, you're wanted on the telephone.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother that telephone!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • (Phone chattering)
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, my dear.
  • George Carlin: He said to his wife.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas is in trouble with the police and I must go at once.
  • George Carlin: At the station, Thomas' driver told Sir Topham Hatt what had happened.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Dangerous to the public indeed. We'll see about that.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt spoke to the policeman. But however much he argued with him it was no good.
  • Policeman: The law is the law.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Policeman: And we can't change it.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt felt exhausted.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I'm sorry, driver.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's no use arguing with the policeman. We will have to make those cowcatcher things for Thomas I suppose.
  • Thomas: Everyone will laugh, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: They say I look like a tram.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt stared, then he laughed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Thomas. Why didn't I think of it before? We need a tram engine. When I was on my holiday, I met a nice little engine called Toby. He takes freight cars from the farms but the trucks have taken most of his work and he needs a change. He has cowcatchers and sideplates. I'll write to this superintendent at once.
  • George Carlin: A few days later, Toby arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's a good engine.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I see you brought your coach Henrietta.
  • Toby: You don't mind, do you, sir?
  • George Carlin: Asked Toby.
  • Toby: The stationmaster wanted to use her as a hen house, and that would never do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We couldn't allow that.
  • George Carlin: Toby made the silly cars even better than Thomas did.
  • Policeman: Hey you!
  • George Carlin: At first, Thomas was jealous, but he was so pleased when Toby rang his bell and frightened the policeman, they've been firmed friends ever since.

  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Granpuff)
  • George Carlin: One winter's night when the cold wind blew, the engines found it hard to sleep.
  • Toby: What we need.
  • George Carlin: Suggested Toby.
  • Toby: Is to listen to a story.
  • Percy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Percy.
  • Percy: A mysterious story.
  • Duck: But.
  • George Carlin: Added Duck.
  • Duck: It must have a happy ending.
  • Thomas: Driver told me a story.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas, so everyone listened.
  • Thomas: Once upon a time...
  • George Carlin: Began Thomas. They were three little engines who lived their own little shed on their own little railway. Their names were Duke, Stuart and Falcon. Duke was the oldest and was name after his grace, the Duke of Sodor. He was proud of this and love to keep the little ones in order. Whenever they had anything that Duke thought wrong, he would say...
  • Duke: That would never suit his Grace.
  • George Carlin: Other engines came and went but Duke outlast them at all. Stuart and Falcon used to call him "Granpuff". They were fun of him, but they got very tired and hearing all about his Grace. Sometimes they were teasing and chant...
  • Stuart and Falcon: Engines come and engines go, Granpuff goes on forever!
  • Duke: You impurtanded scallywags!
  • George Carlin: Duke would say.
  • Duke: Whatever are you engines coming to?
  • Falcon: Never mind, Granpuff. We're only young once.
  • Duke: Well you better mind, unless you wanna end up like Smudger.
  • Stuart: Ooh! Granpuff, whatever happened?
  • Duke: Smudger.
  • George Carlin: Said Duke.
  • Duke: Was a showoff. He rode roughly often came off the rails. I warned him to be careful, but he took no notice.
  • Smudger: Listen, Dukie.
  • George Carlin: He snarled.
  • Smudger: Who worries about their few spills?
  • Duke: We do here, I said, but Smudger just laughed.
  • Smudger: (laughs)
  • Duke: Until one day, manager said he was gonna make himself useful at last. Smudger stopped laughing then.
  • Stuart: Why? What did he do?
  • Duke: He turned him into a generator. He still out there behind our shed. He'll never move again.
  • George Carlin: After that, Stuart and Falcon became really useful engines and all three were happy together for many years. Then hard times came. The mines and the hills closed and the railway was closed too. People came to buy the engines.
  • People: We'll take Stuart and Falcon.
  • George Carlin: No one wanted Duke. They thought him too old.
  • Stuart: Cheer up, Granpuff.
  • George Carlin: Called Stuart.
  • Stuart: We'll find you a nice railway and then you can come and keep us in order.
  • George Carlin: They tried to be brave and cheerful, but no one really thought their dreams would come true. Duke's driver and fireman oiled and greased him one last time. They sheeted and snuggly and said goodbye, then they had to go away and find work. Duke was alone.
  • Duke: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Duke: I'll go to sleep. It'll help me pass the time.
  • George Carlin: Winter torrents washed soil from the hills. Trees and bushes grew all around. You wouldn't know the shed was there, let alone the little engine sleep inside.
  • Percy: That's not a happy ending!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Thomas.
  • Thomas: There will be one, but that'll have to wait until next time.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Sir Topham Hatt)
  • (Gordon's whistle toots)
  • Children (singing): His name is Sir Topham Hatt. Some people say he's - Stout!! Rather rotund, really quite round. But he doesn't see it like that.
  • Girl: He's considered he's a gentleman of merit.
  • Boy: With a railway exquisitely fine.
  • Children: (singing) But his main aim is to see that his trains run right on time. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's as plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. One day he was having breakfast, when Thomas decided to call. He arrived unexpected and quite uninvited straight through the dining room wall.
  • Boy: My goodness! Said the controller. Why didn't you knock at the door?
  • Children: (singing) This won't do at all just look at my wall and my breakfast on the floor. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway there is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. He's so proud of his engines each and everyone. And though he's strict and meticulous, favorites he has none. If ever there is trouble, you know who will be there.
  • Girl: If there's ever a crash a smash or a muddle, he's there on the double, no trouble.
  • Children: (singing) Cause it's the fat controller's railway. When Henry stayed in the tunnel, everyone tried to push. But Sir Topham Hatt would have none of that.
  • Boy: My doctor has forbidden me to push.
  • Children: (singing) And one day the wind blew his hat off.
  • Girl: A goat in the field saw his chance.
  • Children: (singing) He just picked up the hat, said thank you for that and ate it up for lunch. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. Sir Top, Sir Topham Hatt. He's the head of the railway. There is no doubt about that controller of the line. It's plain as plain can be for everyone to see that it's the fat controller's railway. The fat controller's railway. Sir Top-ham Hatt.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Percy Proves A Point)
  • George Carlin: Percy worked hard at the new harbour. The workmen needed stone for their building. Toby helped, but sometimes the loads of stone are too heavy, and Percy had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes, he sees Thomas.
  • Thomas: Well done, Percy. Sir Topham Hatt is very pleased with us.
  • George Carlin: An airfield was closed by. Percy heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a helicopter.
  • Percy: Silly thing!
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Why can't and go and buzz somewhere else?
  • George Carlin: One day, Percy stopped at the airfield.
  • Percy: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: Who are you?
  • Harold: I'm Harold. Who are you?
  • Percy: I'm Percy. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Harold: They're nice arms.
  • George Carlin: Said Harold.
  • Harold: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Percy: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Harold: I think railways are slow.
  • George Carlin: Said Harold.
  • Harold: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • George Carlin: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Percy found Toby at the quarry.
  • Percy: I say Toby. That Harold, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says I'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • George Carlin: He collected his freight cars and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Driver: Percy.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Harold. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Percy: Yes, let's.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy. Percy pounded along, the cars screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. There was Harold. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Percy!
  • George Carlin: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • George Carlin: Percy had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Percy: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the cars.
  • Cars: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. It was no use. Percy was bucketing along with flying wheels and Harold was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • George Carlin: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Percy: Peep peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please?
  • George Carlin: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and halted on the wharf.
  • Percy: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Percy.
  • Percy: I'm sure we've lost.
  • George Carlin: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Harold's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • George Carlin: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Percy. (singing) Said Harold the Helicopter to our Percy you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Percy and his stone cars did the trip in record time, and we beat the helicopter on our old branch line.
  • George Carlin: Percy loved it.
  • Percy: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy engine.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Harold The Helicopter)
  • Children: (singing) Who do you call when the chips are down? When your back is against the wall. When there's no way out and time is running out and you're heading for a fall? High in the sky. Suddenly comes the hero. You can rely on him. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies, should danger arise. Look to the skies, for Harold will be there. He is a natural hero. He is guardian of the skies. And down through the years there are many tales of his courage in the skies. Out from the clouds. Suddenly comes the hero. We recognize that sound. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies, should danger arise. Reach for the sky, for Harold will be there. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies. See how he flies. You can rely, Harold will be there.
