Episode 1: Timmy Gets Tricked

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Ringo Starr.

Quotes

  • Ringo: Timmy is a tank engine who lives at a big station on 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 also has a silly pink hat and a rather big tooth.
  • Timmy: Hey!
  • (Timmy pulls into the station with coaches where Ed could be seen)
  • Ringo: He's a fussy little engine too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big engines to take on long journeys. (Ed pulls out with a train) And when trains come in, (in unison, Timmy pulls backwards into the station with coaches) he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big engines can go and rest. Timmy thinks no engine works as hard as he does. (in unison, Ed and Eddy puff by with trains) He loves playing tricks on them (in unison, Timmy puffed by pushing a freight car) including Homer, the biggest and proudest engine of all. (in unison, a shot of Homer looking proud and important was shown). Timmy likes to tease Homer with his whistle. (in unison, a shot of Timmy's whistle was shown blowing steam and making Thomas' whistle sound)
  • Timmy: Wake up, ya' lazy bum! Why don't you work hard and get some exercise like me!?
  • Ringo: One day, after pulling the big express, Homer had arrived back in the siding very tired. He was just going to sleep when Timmy came up in his cheeky way.
  • Timmy: Hey! Lazy bum! Up and at 'em! Get to work! (in unison, Homer wakes up exclaiming "What the-?!") [sing-song] You'll never catch me!!!!
  • Ringo: And off he ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Homer thought how he could get back at Timmy.
  • Homer: Why, that little-!
  • Ringo: One morning, Timmy wouldn't wake up. His driver, Bubbles couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express, people were waiting but the coaches weren't ready.
  •  *scene cuts to Timmy puffing out of his shed*
  • Ringo: At last Timmy started.
  • Timmy (in a tired, moaning way): *moans* Bubbles, I want to go back to sleep, why did you light my fire? *moans*
  • Bubbles: We need to work, Timmykins.
  • Ringo: said Bubbles. Timmy fussed into the station where Homer was waiting.
  • Homer: Where were you boy?! Get my coaches ready, twerp!
  • Timmy: Aaaah, SHADDUP!!!!
  • Ringo: Timmy said rudely. Bubbles was horrified.
  • Bubbles: *loud horrified gasp* Timmykins, behave yourself!
  • Timmy: *groans* Sorry, Bubbles.
  • Ringo: groaned Timmy. Homer began making his plan to teach Timmy a lesson for teasing him, almost before the coaches had stopped moving, *Homer backs onto his train* Homer reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Homer: C'mon, c'mon! Get in, I gotta go! *blows his whistle*
  • Ringo: he whistled. Timmy always pushes behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Homer started so quickly, they forgot to uncouple Timmy! Homer's chance had come.
  • Homer: USA! USA!
  • Ringo: Puffed Homer to the coaches. The train was going faster and faster, too fast for Timmy. He wanted to stop, but he couldn't!
  • Timmy: *screams* Stop before I hurl!!!!
  • Ringo: cried Timmy.
  • Homer: *laughs* Enjoying the ride, shrimp?!
  • Ringo: laughed Homer.
  • Moe: You show him, Homer!
  • Lenny (in unison): There's no escapin', Turner!
  • Carl (in unison): You go, Homer!
  • Barney (in unison): *burps* 
  • Ringo: Laughed the coaches. Poor Timmy 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.
  • Timmy: I ain't ever gonna be the same engine again!
  • Ringo: He thought sadly.
  • Timmy: My wheels'll have no use!
  • Ringo: At last, they stopped at a station. Timmy was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next, he went onto a turntable thinking about everyone laughing at him. And then he ran onto a siding, out of the way.
  • Homer: (laughing) Well, well, well, mini Timmy.
  • Ringo: Chuckled Homer.
  • Homer: Ya know what I put up with now?!
  • Ringo: Poor Timmy couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long, long drink.
  • Timmy: Guess teasing Homer ain't what being useful's about.
  • Ringo: Timmy thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.

  • Ringo: Said Homer
  • Homer: Drivers deserve a strong engine like ME! *laughs*
  • Ringo: But Edd's driver, Lisa felt sorry for him.
  • Lisa: You poor, poor engine. Would you like to me to bring you out today?
  • Edd: Oh, yes! Bless you, bless you, Lisa!

  • (Edd leaves the shed)
  • Ringo: The other engines were very cross about being left behind.

Quote 2

  • Ringo: Edd played till there were no more freight cars, then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. *Homer blows his whistle* Homer was very cross. Instead of nice shining coaches, he was pulling a very dirty freight train.
  • Homer: *loud groan* Why do I have to do all the dirty work?! It's wrong! SO WRONG! Why did Mr. McMahon give me this dirty work?!
  • Ringo: He grumbled.
  • Homer: Or maybe I could be something like a donut delivery train. Mmmm...donuts.... *drools*
  • Ringo: Edd laughed and went to find some more freight cars. Then there was trouble.
  • Stationmaster: Homer can't get up the hill! Will you take Edd and push him please?
  • Edd: Right-O!
  • Ringo: They found Homer halfway up and very cross. Marge spoke to him SEVERELY.
  • Marge: What's wrong with you, Homey?! You're not trying!
  • Homer: *moan* It's no use, Marge!
  • Ringo: said Homer.
  • Homer: The loudmouthed freight cars hold me back!
  • Ringo: Lisa came up.
  • Lisa: Me and Edd have arrived to your assist.
  • Ringo: said Lisa.
  • Homer: WHAT?! How could that runt push me up this stupid hill?
  • Ringo: said Homer.
  • Lisa: Just you wait. Edd'll show you!
  • Ringo: replied Lisa. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Edd: *couples up to the brakevan* I'm ready when you are Homer!
  • Ringo: Called Edd.
  • Homer: Ah, pretend you're any good!
  • Ringo: Grumbled Homer. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Homer (while straining): I can't do it! UNGH! Can you push any harder other than being a wimp?!
  • Ringo: Groaned Homer.
  • Edd (in a straining way): A little encouragement would really be appreciated!!!!
  • Ringo: Puffed Edd. Edd pushed and puffed, and puffed and pushed as hard As he could. And almost before he realized it, Homer found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Homer: I did it! WHOO-HOO!!!! USA! USA!
  • Ringo: He said proudly.
  • Edd: (in unison): PANT! PANT!
  • Ringo: He forgot all about kind Edd. And didn't say "thank you".
  • Edd (out of breath): So...tired...!
  • Ringo: Edd was far out of breath and far behind. But he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that Lisa was very pleased with him. Lisa gave him a nice long drink.
  • Edd: The gall of your father, Lisa.
  • Lisa: Ah, don't listen to my dad, Edd. Dad's known for his quirks, stupidity, doubtful, and belligerent behavior. I adore you dearly no matter what your strength is. And by the way, I'll get my paintwork going tomorrow, and give you a fresh coat of paint of orange and blue. Then you will be the most intellectual and intelligent engine in the shed.
  • Edd: Oh, bless you Lisa! *episode ends*

Trivia

Episode 3: Come Out, Ed!

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Ringo Starr.

Quotes

  • Ringo: The engine's name is Ed. His driver, Sid the Sloth argued with him, but he would not move.
  • Ed: The evil rain will make me melt like the butter monster in "The Breakfast that ate Man!"
  • Ringo: He said.

Quote 2

  • Ringo: Then along came Vince McMahon, a person who left the WWE wrestling company to become the superintendent in charge of all the engines on the Island Of Sodor.
  • Vince McMahon: We're gonna pull your butt out if you're gonna keep acting this way, Ed. I ain't jokin' with ya, Monobrow.
  • Ringo: But Ed only blew steam at him. *Ed hisses steam at McMahon* Everyone pulled except Mr McMahon.
  • Vince McMahon: I'd help,
  • Ringo: He said.
  • Vince McMahon: But my doctor says pulling's bad for a symptom I recently caught.
  • Ringo: But still, Ed stayed in the tunnel. Then they tried pushing from the other end. Mr. McMahon said,
  • Vince McMahon: On your mark, get set...push!
  • Ringo: But he didn't help.
  • Vince McMahon: I forgot to mention, my doctor said pushing is also bad for my unhealthy condition!
  • Ringo: He said. They pushed and pushed and pushed. But still, Ed stayed in the tunnel.

Quote 3

  • Ringo: Timmy pushed and puffed, and puffed as hard as ever he could. But still Ed stayed in the tunnel.
  • Timmy: C'mon, Lumpy! MOVE!!!! *grunts and groans*
  • Ed: *grunts* NO!!!! *grunts*
  • Timmy: *groans and pants* The passengers are gonna give bad reviews to their friends about the railway! *stops* (in a tired way) You need to stop this crud, Monobrow.... *pants*
  • Ringo: Eventually, even Mr. McMahon gave up.
  • Vince McMahon: Like John Cena, I didn't wanna give up, but sadly I have to because you are acting as stubborn as a mule. As your punishment we're gonna remove your rails and leave you here until you learn to cope the best you can with the rain.
  • Ringo: So they took up the old rails and built a brick wall in front of Ed so that the other engines wouldn't bump into him. All Ed could do was to watch the trains rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad because he thought no one would ever see his lovely green paint with red stripes again. As time went on, Edd and Homer would often pass by. Edd would say,
  • Edd: Salutations, Ed!
  • Ringo: And Homer would say,
  • Homer: (laughs) You're stuck!
  • Ringo: Poor Ed had no steam to answer, his fire had gone out. Soot and dirt from the tunnel had spoiled his lovely green paint and red stripes anyway. How long do you think Ed will stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain and then decides to journey out again?
  • (Episode ends)

  • Ringo: Said Nazz.
  • Nazz: That means our train's stuck here until another train comes by!
  • Ringo: The passengers all said what a bad railway it was. Then they told the squid how bad he was instead. Everyone was very cross. At last he handed his laces over.
  • Squilliam: (un-amused sigh) Fine. I always get MY way at my social club anyway.
  • Ringo: Nazz tied a pad of her magazine pages tightly around the hole in the brake-pipe. And Eddy was able to pull the train. But he was a sadder and wiser Eddy and took care never to bump coaches again.

  • Ringo: At last, Vince McMahon arrived.
  • Vince: Eddy, I see you must be sorry.
  • Ringo: He said.
  • Vince: And I know you're trying to be the most splendid engine there is. But because of your recent incident, people have been talking bad about my railway's service and that displeases me! I'll let you out if you promise to redeem yourself and not make the same mistake twice!

Episode 10: A Proud Day for Eddy

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Ringo Starr.

Quotes

  • Ringo: One night, Ed and Homer were alone with Eddy. Although Vince McMahon was beginning to think well of him, whenever a chance came, the other engines would talk of nothing but bootlaces.
  • Ed: Remember the squid's shoelace saved your buttocks, Eddy?!
  • Homer (in unison): [laughs] You needed help from a shoelace!
  • Ringo: They would tease. Eddy tried to get back by talking about Ed who got shut up in a tunnel and Homer who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Homer: You talk too big for someone your size, little Eddy.
  • Ringo: Said Homer.
  • Homer: A mighty engine like me actually has things to talk about. Only an engine as strong and big as myself can pull express trains! Unless I'm there, they need two to pull 'em! Think about that! I've pulled expresses a long time now and never once have I lost my way! Hmmm...it's as if I know the right way by instinct!

Quote 2

  • Homer: Woo-hoo! Look at me go!
  • Ringo: He said. And the coaches glided after him.
  • Homer: U.S.A! U.S.A! So long, Eddy! See ya here tomorrow!
  • Ringo: Eddy watched the train disappear and then went back to work. He pushed some freight cars into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. Eddy had just brought the coaches to the platform and he heard a mournful noise. There was Homer trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • Eddy: Well, look who decided to show up back here? It's tomorrow? So soon?
  • Ringo: Homer didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • Eddy: Face it, Homeboy, you failed!
  • Ringo: Said Eddy.
  • Homer: PFFT! Never! I couldn't find my way! Marge had to put me on another track and drive me all the way back here! Lousy lost way...
  • Eddy: Shoulda, coulda, woulda. If you had used some of that ink-stains or whatever it's called.
  • Ringo: Said Eddy. Meanwhile, all the passengers hurried to the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want out money back!
  • Ringo: They shouted.

Quote 3

  • Vince: Homer's unable to make it all the way.
  • Ringo: He said.
  • Vince: Can I count on you to pull the express, Eddy?
  • Eddy: Just watch me! You'll see!
  • Ringo: So Eddy was coupled on and everyone got in.
  • Vince: I expect your best effort, Mr. McRich!
  • Ringo: Said Vince McMahon.

Quote 4

  • Vince: I'm proud of you, Mr. McRich! 
  • Ringo: He said. 
  • Vince: How would you like to be the express engine on some days?
  • Eddy: Really?! Sweet! (whistles in high-pitch) 
  • Ringo (in unison): Answered Eddy. 
  • Ringo: Next day, when Eddy came by, Homer was pushing freight cars. 
  • Homer: Ah, I love peace and quiet during work. I'm showing these little punks how to show respect. The boss told me you pulled my express piece of cake! Mmmm...cake. Now, let's show 'em the kind of engines we are! 
  • Ringo: And he gave his cars a bump. Eddy and Homer are now good friends. Eddy sometimes takes the express to give Homer a rest. Homer never talks about bootlaces. And they are both quite agreed on the subject of freight cars.

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Ringo Starr.

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Ringo: Timmy the Tank Engine is very proud of his branchline. He thinks it is the most important part of the whole railway. His two coaches, Cosmo and Wanda agree with him. Cosmo could only take passengers, but Wanda can take passengers, luggage and the conductor! They are both old and need new paint, but Timmy loves them very much. As they run backwards and forwards along the line, they sing songs to each other. When Timmy starts from a station he says,
  • Timmy: C'mon guys! We're running two minutes late!
  • Ringo: And Cosmo and Wanda would say,
  • Cosmo: But we're hooked up to you! We're already coming!
  • Wanda: Oh, Cosmo-!
  • Ringo: They don't mind what Timmy says to them, because they know he is trying to please Vince McMahon. And they know too, if Timmy is cross, he's not cross with them. *Timmy stops at the station* One day, they had to wait for Ed's train. Which made Timmy VERY cross.
  • Timmy: Ed is such a slowpoke! How can I be on time if Lumpy's always late as usual?! Doesn't he realize how much Mr. McMahon's depending on me?!
  • Ringo: Timmy whistled impatiently. *in unison, Timmy blew on his whistle* They waited and waited. *Ed finally shows up* At last, Ed came.
  • Ed: *blows on his whistle and stops* *groans*
  • Timmy: Where were you, Monobrow?!
  • Ed: It wasn't my fault, Timmy! My belly-tank told me it was bottomless gravy day at the water towers! Bad belly-tank! Baaaad!!!
  • Timmy: That's a bunch of crud!
  • Ringo: Said Timmy.
  • Timmy: Wake up and smell the real world for once!

Quote 2

  • Timmy: Guys! Come on! Come on!
  • Ringo: Puffed Timmy. But Wanda didn't want to come.
  • Wanda (hysterically): We gotta go back! Conductor Neptune's not with us!
  • Ringo: She sobbed. Cosmo tried to tell Timmy what had happened.
  • Cosmo: Timmy! Wanda's trying to say something!
  • Ringo: But he was hurrying and wouldn't listen. Cosmo and Wanda tried to put on their brakes, but they couldn't without the conductor.
  • Cosmo and Wanda: Timmy! The conductor! Timmy! CONDUCTOR NEPTUNE!
  • Ringo: They cried. But Timmy didn't stop until he came to a signal.
  • Timmy(sarcastically): Oh, this is just great!
  • Ringo: Said Timmy.
  • Timmy: Why's that signal stoppin' us?!
  • Bubbles: Gee, I wish I knew.
  • Ringo: Said Bubbles.
  • Bubbles: King Conductor Neptune, as he prefers to be called, will let us know.
  • Ringo: They waited and waited, but Neptune didn't come.
  • Timmy: Peep! Peep! Peep! Hello?! Where IS he?!!
  • Ringo: Whistled Timmy.
  • (In unison, a shot of Timmy's whistle being blown was shown.)
  • Cosmo: He's lost! We'll never see him again!!!!
  • Ringo: Cried Cosmo.
  • Wanda: Cosmo, you idiot! He's not lost, he was just left back at the station!
  • Ringo: Wanda corrected.
  • Wanda: I just hope he'll go easy on us.

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Ringo Starr.

Quotes

  • Ringo: When Timmy puffed along his branchline, he always looked forward to something special...the sight of the river. As he rumbled over the bridge, he would see people fishing. Timmy often wanted to stay and watch, but Bubbles said...
  • Bubbles: I'm sorry, Timmykins! Mr. McMahon wouldn't like us running late!
  • Ringo: Every time, he met another engine, he would say,
  • Timmy: Man, would I love to go fishing someday!
  • Ringo: But they all have the same answer...
  • Eddy: What are you nuts?! Trains can't fish!
  • Timmy: Hah! Just wait and see, Skipper!
  • Ringo: Thought Timmy. One day, he stopped as usual to take in water at the station by the river.
  • Timmy: Out of order?! Dead-Gummit! I'm thirsty!
  • Bubbles: It's ok, Timmykins.
  • Ringo: Said Bubbles
  • Bubbles: We'll get you a nice drink of water from the river.

Quote 2

  • Ringo: Steam was hissing from his boiler in an alarming way.
  • Bubbles: *screams* There's too much steam!!!!! It's so hooott...!
  • Ringo: cried Bubbles.
  • Timmy: UGH! It feels like I have shrimp puffs in my boiler!
  • Ringo: cried Timmy.
  • Bubbles: I'm gonna try and get you to the repair yard so that they can help you feel better, sweetie.
  • Ringo: said Bubbles, sweetly.

Quote 3

  • Vince McMahon: Don't you worry, Timmy.
  • Ringo: said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: We'll soon get you back to work.
  • Ringo: The Professor climbed aboard Timmy and looked in his tank. Then he climbed down.
  • Professor Utonium: Excuse me, Mr. McMahon? Since I am bewildered of what's in that tank, please look inside and tell me what you encounter.
  • Vince: Let me see.
  • Ringo: said Vince McMahon. He climbed the ladder, looked in Timmy's tank and nearly fell off in surprise.
  • Vince: Professor,
  • Ringo: he said.
  • Vince: I think the solution to the problem in this tank is FISH.
  • Timmy: *loud horrified gasp*
  • Professor Utonium: *gasps* Bubbles, how on earth did those fish make their way into Timmy's tank?!
  • Bubbles: Me and Timmy must've fished them out with our bucket by accident. *sad gasps* I was only giving my Timmy Bear a drink. *cries* (in a crying way) The water tower was out of order!
  • Ringo: cried Bubbles.
  • Vince: *hugs Bubbles to sooth her* Awwww... I know it ain't your fault. People make mistakes.
  • Timmy: I can't believe Eddy was right for once and I didn't heed what he said. *painful groan*
  • Vince: Just calm down, Timmy. We'll fish them out for you. Fish don't suit you and me and the Professor must get them out before you get any worse.
  • Bubbles: Can I help you guys fish them out of my poor Timmypie?
  • Vince: Of course, Bubbles. Somehow, I'm holding an extra rod but you can have it if you like.
  • Bubbles: Yay!
  • Ringo: So Bubbles, Vince McMahon, and the Professor took turns fishing in Timmy's tank, while Vince and the Professor were teaching Bubbles how to do it. The Professor and Vince even held Bubbles to catch her fall if she fell.
  • Bubbles (catching her very first fish): OOO! OOO! This is a fighty one! *catches fish and grunts* I-I-I think I caught one!
  • Vince: Great job! Roll it up, Bubble Bass Master!
  • Bubbles: *rolls up the fish* *grunts* (in a groaning way) I-I-I think I've caught him!
  • Vince: and it seems you did! Congratulations, Bubbles! You caught your first fish!
  • Bubbles: Right out of Timmy's tank?! (excitedly) HOORAY! I'm so proud! I helped my honey and that's definitely my dinner tonight, Mr. McMahon! *cheers* I can't wait to have it!
  • Vince: Don't you worry, Bubbles. We're having a picnic supper later to satisfy ourselves. Climb down quickly and I'll take that fish of the hook for you. *Bubbles climbs down and he takes fish of her hook and throws it into a pail next to the ladder.
  • Ringo: When they caught all the fish, they had a lovely picnic supper of Fish N' Chips.
  • Bubbles (after she took her last bite of fish): Oh my, I feel sorry for eating the cute little fish, but from now on, I'll never eat fish again.... well, for a while at least--*belches* excuse me. *giggles*
  • Ringo: giggled Bubbles, and climbed aboard Timmy.
  • Vince (after he ate): Mmmm... that was a great meal.
  • Ringo: said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: But fish don't suit you, Timmy. So next time, use another water tower if one's out of order.
  • Timmy: *comfortable sigh* I will.
  • Ringo: said Timmy.
  • Timmy: Trains can't fish, it ain't comfortable.

  • Bubbles: You're a big, naughty stinker!
  • (in unison, Timmy's shed doors close by themselves)

  • Cosmo: Yeah! Forget snowplows! You the bomb!
  • Wanda: Cosmo, don't encourage him! I just hope we'll be alright without it.
  • Ringo: She whispered to Cosmo. Bubbles was worried too.
  • Bubbles: Well, not so bad here, but there'll be plenty more in the valley!

Quote 3

  • Ringo: He rushed into a tunnel, thinking how clever he was, but there was trouble ahead.
  • (Timmy blows his whistle rapidly while screaming as he ran into the snowbank.)
  • Timmy: *Spits out snow* *coughs* Augh!
  • Ringo: Said Timmy.
  • Timmy: I'm stuck!
  • Ringo: And he was
  • Bubbles: Puff yourself out, Sweetie!

  • Timmy: Oh man! I'm gonna be stuck here until this stupid snow melts! And I'm gonna freeze my buffers off! Jeepers, I'm such a foolish engine.
  • Ringo: And Timmy began to cry.
  • (Timmy sniffles as tears rolled down his cheeks.)
  • (Bubbles does the same in unison.)
  • Ringo: At last a bus came to rescue the passengers. And then...who should come to Timmy's rescue? But Martin!
  • Martin: I'll happily have you extracted from the snowbank!
  • Timmy: Snow sure doesn't worry or stop that brainiac.
  • Wanda: Thank you so much, Martin!
  • Cosmo: Bye, Timmy!
  • Ringo: He pulled the empty coaches away,
  • Ringo: Then went back for Timmy. Timmy's wheels were clear, but still spun when he tried to move. Martin tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged. And at last, dragged Timmy clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Martin backs out through the tunnel.)
  • (Then Timmy went back through the tunnel while blowing his whistle.)
  • Timmy: Martin! You saved my buffers!
  • Ringo: Said Timmy.
  • Timmy: I'm sorry I was so hard on you.

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Homer: You never get the memo, mini little Timmy. We tender engines are very important to the world. But to shunt our own coaches and go onto those filthy sidings, it's... it's... D'OH! It ain't fair to us. *Timmy and Homer puff away with their trains*
  • Ringo: Timmy chuckled and went off with Cosmo and Wanda.
  • Wanda (while leaving with Timmy): Geez, what a big blue jerk!

  • Timmy: Is it opposite day? No wonder you're going backwards like us tank engines *laughs*

Quotes

  • Ringo: Vince McMahon sat in his office listening to the noise outside. The passengers were angry. The stationmaster, Mr. Potato Head came in.
  • Potato Head: Hey, McMahon! Did your engines take stupid pills this morning?! Ed won't move! The coaches are waiting and the passengers are saying this railway has a bad reputation!
  • Vince: A bad reputation?!
  • Ringo: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: We ain't having that!
  • Ringo: He found Homer, Eddy and Ed looking very cross.
  • Vince: Ed, come on! Your coaches are waiting for you!
  • Homer: Wait a minute, buddy. Ed isn't going anywhere.
  • Ringo: Said Homer.
  • Ed: Where was I going?
  • Homer: We aren't gonna shunt like puny little engines. That was Timmy's job! We're important and demand more respect! So, YOU find our coaches and WE'LL gladly pull them. The big boys of this line don't do any shunting!
  • Eddy: Yeah! What he said!
  • Vince: We'll see about that.
  • Ringo: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: There isn't an engine on my railway who's too important for small tasks!
  • Ringo: And he hurried away to find Edd.
  • Vince: *sigh* It just hasn't been the same ever since Timmy left the yard to run his branchline.
  • Ringo: He thought sadly. Edd was shunting.
  • Vince: Edd, leave those cars please!
  • Ringo: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: I want you to shunt coaches for me in the yard!
  • Edd: Why, thank you, Mr. McMahon. I like a nice change of work.
  • Vince: I knew I could count on you, Edd. Hurry off now.
  • Ringo: So Edd found coaches for the three engines and that day the trains ran as usual. But next morning, Edd looked unhappy. Homer came clanking past, hissing rudely.
  • Vince: AAUGH!
  • Ringo: exclaimed Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: That was an unpleasant and unnecessarily loud noise!
  • Edd: They've been blowing steam at me, Mr. McMahon.
  • Ringo: Answered Edd.
  • Edd: They claim tender locomotives don't shunt and last night, they repeatedly called me "Sockhead." My hat's no sock!
  • Vince: You're absolutely right, Edd. It's a very nice hat, I'm proud of your hard work and tender engines DO shunt. Still, more help is needed around the yard. Another tank engine at that.
  • Ringo: He went to a workshop and they showed him all sorts of engines. At last he saw a smart little red engine with spiky hair.
  • Vince: You! If I choose you, do you promise to work hard?
  • Bart: Work? But that's no fun.
  • Vince: If that's gonna be your attitude, maybe I'll pick that Muntz engine I saw before you. He'll probably do a better job than you ever could.
  • Bart: Wait! I'll work hard! I'll work hard!
  • Vince: That's better. Now, what's your name?
  • Bart: I'm Bart Simpson.
  • Vince: Great to meet you. Can you give me a lift?
  • Bart: You got it!
  • Ringo: And Vince McMahon brought him back to the yard.
  • Vince: Edd,
  • Ringo: He called.
  • Vince: This is Bart. Would you mind showing him around?
  • Ringo: Bart soon saw what he had to do. And they had a happy afternoon. Then Ed came by hissing as usual.
  • Bart (wheeshing in unison): Eat my steam!!!!
  • Ringo: Went Bart.
  • Ed: Retreat!!!!
  • Ringo: Ed jumped and ran back to the shed.
  • Ed: The little porcupine is too strong!
  • Edd: Gracious, Bart. That blow of steam was most impressive!
  • Ringo: Laughed Edd.
  • Edd: Why, I've never done it like that before.
  • Bart: Ah, that's nothing!
  • Ringo: Said Bart.
  • Bart: Back in the work shed, we always had contests for loudest wheeshing. I won every time! (laughs) What suckers!
  • Ringo: Next morning, Timmy arrived.
  • Timmy: Vince McMahon wanted me. I'm guessing he needs help.
  • Ringo: He said to Edd.
  • Edd: Hush. He's approaching us.
  • Ringo: Replied Edd.
  • Vince: Good job Timmy. You were very fast. Now, here's the situation. Homer, Eddy and Ed are complaining in the sheds and refuse to do any little engines' work. So they're being restrained from leaving the sheds as ordered by me. And I want Timmy and Edd to run the mainline for a while.
  • Timmy: Little?! Well, is that so?!
  • Ringo: Whistled Timmy.
  • Timmy: We'll show them who's little!
  • Vince: Bart will also help as well.
  • Bart (un-amused): Oh, great...
  • Ringo: Answered Bart.
  • Vince: Do I need to remind you again of...?
  • Bart: I mean, All right!
  • Ringo: Edd and Timmy worked the mainline, greeting each other as they passed by. Bart worked the branchline. Timmy was anxious about Cosmo and Wanda, but both Bart's driver, Kevin and conductor promised to take care of them. There were fewer trains. But the passengers didn't mind. They knew the three other engines were having a lesson. Homer, Eddy and Ed were cold, lonely and miserable. They wish now they hadn't been so silly.
  • Homer: I can't believe this.
  • Eddy: This stinks.
  • Ed: *sobs* It is not fair.

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Ringo: Ed, Eddy and Homer were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty and longed to be let out again. At last, Vince McMahon arrived.
  • Vince: I hope you're all sorry.
  • Ringo: He said.
  • Vince: And realize that EVERY job both big AND SMALL is important! Bart the new tank engine's been helping by pulling coaches. And Timmy and Edd have both done an excellent job running the mainline. I'll only let you three out again if you promise to improve your attitudes and you'll put your back buffers into your work!
  • Homer: You can count on us!
  • Eddy (in unison): You got it!
  • Ed (in unison): Okey dokey, Smokey!
  • Ringo: Said the three engines.
  • Homer: We're back in business!
  • Eddy (in unison): I'm into easy!
  • Ed (in unison): *chuckles* That rhymed!
  • Vince: That's what I like to hear! But I don't want to hear anymore of this "No shunting" talk! Is that clear?!
  • Ed: (laughing)

Quote 2

  • Ringo: Edd had warned Bart.
  • Edd (voice only): Be cautious on the main line, whistle to the signalman so he can change the switch.
  • Ringo: But Bart didn't remember to whistle, so the busy signalman forgot him. Bart waited and waited. The points were still against him so that he couldn't move, then he looked along the main line.
  • Bart: PEEP!!!! PEEP!!!!
  • Ringo: he whistled in horror for rushing straight towards him... (scene cuts to Homer charging for Bart) was Homer with the express!
  • Kevin: Retreat!!!!
  • Ringo: cried Kevin, but Bart's wheels wouldn't turn quickly!
  • Homer: (Screams) OH MY GOSH! I'M GONNA CRASH! SAVE ME JEBUS!!!!!
  • Ringo: screamed Homer. Bart shut his eyes and waited for the crash!
  • (Homer rolls up to Bart)
  • Ringo: When Bart opened his eyes, he found that Homer had stopped by the buffers a few inches from his own!
  • Homer: What the?! Bart! WHY YOU LITTLE!!!!
  • Ringo: screamed Homer, but suddenly Bart's wheels began to move.
  • Bart: UH-OH! Gotta go!!!! See ya later Homeboy!!!!
  • Ringo: He puffed.

Quote 3

  • Bart: Oh man, gotta stop! Oh man, gotta stop!
  • Ringo: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Bart was in trouble so he kindly set the switch. Bart puffed wearily onto an empty siding landing in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to think where he was.
  • Bart: Oh man! Gotta stop! Gotta stop! Hey, what do you know? I did!
  • Ringo: He puffed thankfully.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Bart.
  • Ringo: Said the men as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have a drink and some coal and then you'll feel better.
  • Ringo: Presently, Homer arrived.
  • Homer: Way to go, boy. Way to speed up the process so you wouldn't get into any scrap!
  • Bart: Thanks, Homeboy. And sorry. I was just playing.
  • Ringo: Said Bart.
  • Homer: You darn well better have.

  • Ed: Oh, the suffering. I am a lonely number nobody wants!
  • Eddy: Ah, That's a load of baloney, Monobrow! You're as lazy as a bum!
  • Ringo: Vince McMahon spoke to him too.
  • Vince: Ed, I don't know what's wrong with you lately. You've gotten a lot of new parts and a new coat of paint couldn't perk your enthusiasm, but nothing seems to work. Unless we can fix you, I'll need to order another steam engine to replace you and pick up the slack.
  • Ringo: This made Ed, Sid and his fireman very sad.

Quote 2

  • Ringo: Ed managed to start, but Sid was not satisfied.
  • Sid: Ed isn't much of a steamer. I, "Lord Of The Flame" lit his fire, but it doesn't seem to build up the heat.
  • Vince (sarcastically): Hey, "Lord Of The Flame", *short pause* Your tail's on fire.
  • Sid: *runs around screaming and Vince splashes a bucket of ice cold water on his tail*
  • Sid: Ahhh.... *scene cuts to Ed puffing slowly down the line*
  • Ed: *sniffs* I'm not in my happy place, Sidney.
  • Ringo: Ed tried very hard, but it was no good. He didn't have enough steam and came to rest outside Edd's station.
  • Ed: *moans* I shall eat my own wheels in order for me to survive!!!! *bawls*

Quote 3

  • Vince: Ed, how are ya feelin'?
  • Ed: Toot-toot!
  • Ringo: Whistled Ed.
  • Ed: I feel all fuzzy inside, Mr. McMuffin!
  • Vince: Ed's fire lookin' ok, Sid?
  • Sid: Couldn't be better, Mr. McMahon. Look at that steam!
  • Vince: There better not be any goofin' around out there!
  • Ringo: Warned Mr. McMahon.
  • Vince: Control your engine, Sid!
  • Sid: You can count on me, McMahon. I'll have him well restrained!
  • Ringo: Ed had a lovely day. He had never felt so well in his life. He wanted to go fast, but Sid wouldn't let him.
  • Sid: Whoa! Ease off there, Ed. We'll be there in record time.
  • Ringo: They arrived early at the station. Timmy puffed in.
  • Ed: Tsk, tsk. Do you know how long I have been waiting? Oops! Can't chat, little buddy. Full speed ahead! (puffs out of the scene)

Quotes

  • Ringo: One winter evening, Sid said...
  • Sid: Remember, Ed. You and I are getting up early tomorrow. We've got a train to take. Something called the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Homer this, but I bet if we pull the kipper nice and easy, Mr. McMahon will let us pull the express. Not to mention that new coal's been doin' ya good.

  • Ringo: Sid jumped clear before the crash. But Ed laid dazed and surprised.
  • Ed(weary): It's a long ball, coach!
  • Ringo: Vince McMahon came to see him.
  • Ed: It wasn't my fault, Mr. McMuffin! The evil signal did it!
  • Vince: Don't worry, Ed. The accident wasn't your fault. It was ice and snow that caused it. I'll be sending you to crew today. It's just the place for a sick engine like you. They'll give you a new shape along with a larger firebox. You'll feel like a whole new engine and the best part is you won't need any special coal anymore. What do you think of that?
  • Ed: I forget...?
  • Vince: *chuckles* You'll know soon enough.
  • Ringo: Ed liked being at crew, but was glad to come home.
  • Ed: Toot-toot!
  • Ringo: A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers.
  • Ed: Choo-choo! Thank you very much!
  • Ringo: I am sorry to say that a lot of little children are often late for school because they wait to see Ed arrive in his new shape. They often see him pulling the express and he does it so well that Homer is jealous.
  • Homer (in unison): *grumbles under his breath*
  • Ed (in unison): *laughing*

  • Edd: And it certainly should be Homer, but I've never heard Homer whistle like that.
  • Ringo: It was Homer. He came rushing down the hill at a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Ed and he didn't look at Edd. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Edd: Well, I'll be.
  • Ringo: Said Edd.
  • Ed: It is no crime,
  • Ringo: chuckled Ed.
  • Ed: But we just do not...um...GRAVY! *laughs*
  • Ringo: And he told Edd what Homer had said. Meanwhile, Homer screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone held their ears. Vince McMahon held his ears too.
  • Vince: Augh! Bring him to the fitters at once!
  • Ringo: He bellowed.
  • Vince: And knock off that racket!
  • Ringo: Homer puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place. Late that night, Homer slunk into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Ed: It is no crime,
  • Ringo: Said Ed.
  • Ed: But we just don't...um...buttered toast! (goofy laugh)
  • Ringo: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Ed was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Ed: The air smells like cookies! Yum! Yum! Yum!
  • Larry: Mmm...cookies!
  • Bumblebee Man (in unison): Delicioso!
  • Ringo: Said his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Ed: Hello, fellow children!
  • (Shattering sounds)
  • Ed: Ouch!
  • Ringo: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number, they thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.

  • Sid: Leave it to me and Ed!
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • Ringo: They asked.
  • Sid: You all can keep a secret, right?
  • Passengers: Yes, yes!
  • Sid: All right, when we next cross this bridge, Ed, here will sneeze at those punk kids.
  • Ed (snickering): Oooo, hoo hoo hoo.
  • Ringo: Lots of people were waiting at the station. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Sid: All right, everyone. Ed has plenty of ashes. So keep all your windows shut until after we've passed the bridge. I bet Ed's the most excited of all of us. Aren't ya, Ed?
  • Ringo: Ed was feeling stuffed up.
  • Ed: I feel funny.
  • Ringo: Soon they could see the boys and they all had stones.
  • Ace: Here they come, guys. Get ready.
  • Sid: All right, Ed. When I say now, sneeze like you've never sneezed before! NOW!

  • Snake: I means, good prank, Ace.

  • Bart: Oh, well. Will probably go over my head.
  • George: He puffed crossly to his freight cars and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Bart: What the-?! At danger?!
  • George: The signal moved to show line clear. Its arm moved up instead of down. Bart had never seen that sort of signal before.

  • Homer: What the-?!
  • George: Said Homer.
  • Homer: Boy, how do I guess what if you won't tell me what I'm guessing at?!
  • Bart: Apparently, the boss says yard work's too heavy for me. He's getting another engine to cut me some slack.
  • Eddy: What a load of baloney!
  • George: Said Eddy.
  • Eddy: If it wasn't for your slacking off, we wouldn't need another useless steam train in the first place!
  • George: Bart went off to fetch some coaches.
  • Bart: Stupid signal!
  • George: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Bart: Why doesn't anyone believe me lately?! They think just 'cuz I play doesn't mean I don't work at all! I'll show them how much effort I put into my work! Then they'll see!
  • George: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some of the coaches to the station and stood puffing at the platform.
  • Vince McMahon: Afternoon, Bart.
  • George: Said Mr. McMahon.
  • Vince McMahon: You're looking exhausted.
  • Bart: Yeah, man. Yeah, man indeed. I feel like I just woke up on my dome!
  • Vince McMahon: No worry, you're on your wheels like any steam engine should.
  • George: Laughed Vince McMahon.

  • George: The new engine arrived.
  • (Spongebob rolls backwards and stops)
  • Vince McMahon: What's your name?

  • Vince McMahon: Good. So Spongebob your name WILL be.
  • (Bart enters the scene and Timmy cameos pulling red coaches and blew his whistle)

  • George: He said. And he hurried to the yard. Spongebob and Bart calmly sat on the switches outside the shed refusing to let the engines in. Homer, Eddy and Ed were furious.
  • (The 3 blow their whistles shouting angrily.)
  • Vince McMahon: Shaddup!!!! And quit all this racket!!!!
  • George: Bellowed Mr. McMahon.
  • Homer: The boy and the sponge won't move!
  • George: Hissed Homer.
  • Vince McMahon: Spongebob, how do you explain this type of behavior?
  • Spongebob: Understand, Mr. McMahon. You see I am from a Great Western railway. And we typically do whatever work we're assigned. But, please understand, Mr. McMahon. Bart and I would appreciate if you would tell these three that we only take your orders and not theirs.
  • (Eddy blows his whistle followed by Homer blowing his whistle)
  • Vince McMahon: ENOUGH!!!!
  • George: snapped Mr. McMahon.
  • Vince McMahon: Bart, Spongebob, I'm proud of your hard work today, but your behavior tonight is unacceptable. You've created a major scene!
  • George: Homer, Ed and Eddy sniggered.
  • Homer (in unison): *snickers* They made the boss really mad.
  • Eddy (in unison): Man, are they gonna get in trouble...!
  • Ed (in unison): Happy place, Happy place.

  • George: Thundered Mr. McMahon.
  • Homer (in unison): *groans*
  • Eddy (in unsion) Busted.
  • Ed (in unison): Not in my happy place.
  • Vince McMahon: Your behavior was WORSE! You made them do what they did! Spongebob is absolutely right. This is my railway so I make the orders, and I NEVER tolerate ANY immature behavior!

  • Timmy: That's a bunch of crud!!!
  • George: He hissed.
  • Timmy: It ain't my fault those big-headed engines play on viaducts all day!!! They pin the blame on McMahon's workmen and expect ME to pick up the pace! How lazy are these engines?!!!
  • George: One day, Eddy was later than ever at the junction.
  • Eddy: Timmy! Here me out will ya?! Honest, I tried to hurry, but the stupid via-whatsit made me think I'd fall!
  • Timmy: *groan* Don't worry, Eddy. I'm a guaranteed connection after all.
  • George: Grumbled Timmy. Before Eddy could answer, Timmy puffed away.

Quote 2

  • George: Suddenly, Timmy saw Milhouse ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Timmy: What's the matter, Millie?
  • George: Asked Timmy.
  • Timmy: You should have gotten to the station already. Do you know what time it is?!
  • Milhouse: I feel sick.
  • George: Moaned Milhouse.
  • Milhouse: My radiator aches real bad! And my dad can't even make me better. Please, Timmy! Since you're running late too, can you get my passengers to the station? I don't want to be held responsible for them being stranded.
  • Timmy: You can count on me!
  • George: Agreed Timmy. He now felt sorry for Milhouse and promised to get help at the next station.

Quote 3

  • George: When Milhouse was better, he came to thank Timmy.
  • Milhouse: Hey, Timmy. Thanks for helping me out the other day. And I'm sorry I doubted your timing.
  • Timmy: Hey, it's cool. I couldn't just leave you or those people stranded. Maybe some good comes out of being late after all.
  • George: For the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.

  • Trixie: Hello, empty train tracks.

  • George: Said the engines.
  • Vince: Much appreciated. Hurry off now and show her to the shed. She's gonna want to rest after her long trip here.
  • George: Trixie was not easy to please. She shuttered at the engine shed.
  • Trixie: *scoffs* Do you seriously expect me to sleep here?! Where I come from, I sleep in a nice clean shed. And if I get so much a slight smudge, you'll be hearing from my lawyer!
  • Bart (to Johnny): Ay carumba! She's a pain.
  • Johnny (to Bart): Nuts to her attitude.
  • George: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Trixie: Much better,
  • George: Said Trixie.
  • Trixie: But what on earth is that filth?

Quote 2

  • Trixie: You wouldn't want Timmy Turner's smelly pink and green coaches now.

  • Miz: C'mon.
  • George: said her driver, The Miz.
  • Miz: You can pull one lousy van!
  • Trixie: Uh, no-!?
  • George: said Trixie.
  • Trixie: Besides, that little Bart chuffer can pull it. He loves pushing filthy cars!
  • George: She began to shudder violently.
  • Miz: Enough of that!!
  • George: said The Miz.
  • Miz: Heel, Trixie!! Relax before you hurt yourself!
  • George: Trixie lurched backwards. *Trixie lurches back* She was so cross, that she blew a fuse.
  • Trixie: See, what did I tell you?!
  • George: Trixie said and stopped. Everyone argued with her, but it was no use.
  • Trixie: It's by orders of my Security guards.
  • Miz: What Security?
  • George: Asked the Miz.
  • Trixie: My Security guards are very nice people. They'd come by daily and examine me carefully. "Trixie," they'd say "Never, never pull. You were built a rich engine, and your butler says rich engines don't do dirty work. And pulling is bad for a diesel's swerves as highly-sprung as yours" So I'm afraid that's how it is.
  • George: Finished Trixie.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense!
  • George: said the stationmaster.
  • Apu: I can't believe you live by such philosophy!
  • George: said Apu the shunter.
  • Apu: Who in the right mind let Mr. McMahon send such a FEEBLE--!
  • Trixie: Feeble?! FEEBLE?!!!!
  • George: spluttered Trixie.
  • Trixie: Unattach me--!

Episode 46: Bart's Predicament

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by George Carlin.

Quotes

  • George: Trixie the Diesel Railcar's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened of bulls and cows and she remained very lazy and stubborn. One day, Johnny brought Plank to the station where Bart was grumpily shunting.
  • Johnny: Hiya, Bart. Looks like Trixie left the milk behind again, eh?
  • Bart: Great, I guess I'm gonna have to make a special journey with it!? As if there wasn't anything better for me to do!
  • George: Grumbled Bart.
  • Johnny: (to Plank) What's that? (to Bart) Plank says, "We'll take the milk and you fetch our freight cars."
  • George: The drivers and stationmaster agreed. Bart had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the freight cars about.
  • Bart: Hello?! Can you all hurry up?!
  • George: He said. The freight cars grumbled to each other.
  • Cars: This is Johnny's place! Bart's got no right to poke his funnel up here and push us around!
  • George: They whispered and passed the word.
  • Cars: Pay Bart back! Pay Bart back!
  • Bart: Let's go, men! Haven't got all day!
  • Cars: We'll give him all day.
  • George: Giggled the freight cars. But they followed so quietly, that Bart thought they were under control.

Quote 2

  • Cars: On! On!
  • George: They cried.
  • Bart: Ah! Somebody help!
  • George: Whistled Bart. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag. But was too late to switch Bart to the runaway siding. Frantically trying to grip the rails, Bart slid into the yard.
  • Bart: We got a situation here, people! LOOK OUT!
  • (Bart crashes into and atop the brake van)
  • George: The brake van was in smithereens. Kevin had jumped clear, but Bart was stranded. Next day, Vince McMahon arrived. Johnny and Trixie had helped to clear the wreckage, but Bart remained on his perch of freight cars.
  • Vince: Because of your accident, we'll now need to try,
  • George: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: To run the branch line with Johnny and the diesel. If it wasn't for you, Bart, we wouldn't be in this awkward predicament!
  • Bart: Sorry, boss...
  • Vince: I'll need for you to stay there until we're ready.
  • George: Continued Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: And next time, be more cautious of freight cars. (in his head) Usually, it's the cars who are the culprits for my engines' accidents, but somehow, I know Bart made them do what they did.
  • George: Bart sighed. The freight cars groaned beneath his wheels. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Vince McMahon spoke severely to Trixie too.
  • Vince: The engines of my railway always work hard, but you've done EVERYTHING EXCEPT WORK HARD! And lazy engines like you get sent away!
  • George: Trixie was ashamed.
  • Vince: BUT. Johnny has told me that you helped to work hard after Bart's accident. So, Trixie, I'll be giving you another chance.
  • Trixie: You can count on me, Mr. McMahon!
  • George: Said Trixie.
  • Trixie: I know I can AND WILL work hard. That little bald tram engine even says he'll help me out.
  • Vince: Now that's what I like to hear. When Johnny's not in his own world, what he doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. Our Johnny's one experienced tram engine.
  • George: Next day, Timmy came back.
  • Cosmo and Wanda: YAAAY!!!
  • George: And Bart was sent to be mended. Cosmo and Wanda were delighted to see Timmy again and he took them for a run at once.
  • Cosmo: Can we go to Cherry World?
  • Wanda: Not now nor never!
  • Timmy: *laughs as he pulls out* I missed you guys.
  • George: All are now friends and Johnny has taught Trixie a great deal. She shooed a cow off the line the other day all by herself.
  • Johnny: See? What'd I tell ya?

  • Spongebob: P-P-P-Plankton?! What the barnacles are you doing here?!
  • George: Gasped Spongebob.
  • Plankton: Your boss, Vance-I mean Vince McMahon asked for my assistance. I hope you're both glad I'm here. I've been assigned to shunt some incredibly exhausted cars.

  • George: Said Bart suspiciously.
  • Plankton: Where? Why, here to there of course.

  • Ed: I FEEL ALL WARM AND FUZZY INSIDE, CINDY!
  • Sid: It's Sid...
  • George: Ed loved it here. The forest was full of broad oaks and tall pine. Ed could remember the day long ago when he and Johnny brought some new trees to be planted and Martin and Chester helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others on the hillside. Ed always felt better for being here. He didn't have a clue why, but Sid understood.

  • George: He said to Ed. But one night, everything changed.

  • Johnny: You read me like a map, McMahon.

  • Vince: Don't be so sure about that.
  • George: Replied Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: I have the most important task you'll ever do, Johnny. I'd like for you to drop off some freight cars at the forest.
  • George: When the freight cars arrived, Johnny was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees all ready for planting.
  • Johnny: Holy cow. Is this the best job I've had in my life or what?!
  • George: Said Johnny happily. When Ed returned, he was most surprised. There were Martin and Chester busily helping the workmen clear the torn stumps and branches.
  • Martin: Observe, Ed.
  • George: Called Martin.
  • Martin: A new legacy has begun for this forest. This hillside will have improved wonders. Await the results!
  • George: Now whenever Ed stops by the forest, he can see the new trees growing strong and tall. Sometimes, everywhere is very quiet. And at other times, Ed can hear leaves rustling or a bird's wing brush in the air. Often, he can hear the distant sound of children laughing. And always, he is happy here.

Buttercup is young and full of her own ideas. She likes rearranging things too and began putting Johnny's cars in different places every day. This made Johnny cross.
  • Johnny: Your rearranging of the cars has corrupted the quarry!
  • George: He grumbled.
  • Buttercup: Ah, big deal!
  • George: said Buttercup and flounced away. At last Johnny lost patience.
  • Johnny: Plank and I have no time to play hunt the cars with you. Take them yourself, home-wrecker!

  • Buttercup: He says only steam trains can do work with cars!!!
  • George: Continued Buttercup.
  • Plankton: What tartar sauce!

Quote 3

  • George: All traffic haulted.
  • Buttercup: (chuckles) Buttercup, one, Brat-boy, Johnny, zero!
  • George: Chortled Buttercup. But Buttercup had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Johnny's advice, she had given the freight cars the chance they wanted.
  • Cars: Hold back! Hold back!
  • George: They cried.
  • Buttercup: RRRAAAAUUGGH!!
  • George: Ordered Buttercup.

  • Bart: Hey! What's your problem, man?! Johnny needs to be given a break for once! You need to put those stupid cars where he wants them so you can quit whining. Now get out of my way, man! I gotta collect my cars!

Quote 2

  • Buttercup: Can you keep this a secret?
  • George: she asked the freight.
  • Freight: Yes! Yes! Yes!
  • George: They chattered.
  • Buttercup: Will you wail on me at the crossing and not spill the beans?
  • George: The cars promised.

Quote 3

  • They reached the level crossing and Johnny's brakes came on. This was the signal for the freight cars.
  • Freight Cars: ON! ON! ON!
  • George: They yelled.
  • Johnny: Wait, wh-wh-what's going on?!
  • George: Johnny was away with the cars screaming and yelling behind him.
  • George: No one realized that melted snow had turned the stream ahead into a torrent, and the bridge above it was about to collapse. The rails were now like a tightrope across the thundering water.
  • Johnny: Stop! Stop pushing me! HELP! SOMEONE!!!!
  • George: cried Johnny.

Quote 4

  • Buttercup: I'm s-o-o...-o-or-rr...-rr...-ry.

  • Johnny: Ah, who can stay mad at you?!
  • George: Said Johnny.
  • Johnny: Nick told me once about circus carnies who walk on tightropes. I think I could pass without my wheels and a loss of weight! (laughs)
  • George: Later, Vince McMahon arrived.
  • Vince: That was most excellent work today!
  • George: He said.
  • Vince: Buttercup, I'm proud of the way you tackled the situation!
  • Buttercup: Well, you shouldn't. It was MY fault those cars rampaged in the first place.
  • George: She faulted.
  • Buttercup: But maybe I could...
  • Vince: Could what? You can tell me anything.
  • Buttercup: Come down the line sometimes? So Johnny can show me how to work.
  • Vince: Absolutely!
  • George: Replied Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: Only if I meet an agreement with your manager!
  • George: And so it was arranged. Now Buttercup is as happy as can be and Vince McMahon thinks she's really useful indeed.

Quotes

Quote 1

  • George: Chester the Traction Engine was enjoying his work in the vicarage orchard. Birds were singing and apples were ripening on the trees. It was a lovely day.
  • Eddy: Hey, Chester!
  • George: Said Eddy.
  • Eddy: You look ALMOST as great as my coat of paint.
  • Chester (unamused): Gee...thanks, Eddy.
  • George: Replied Chester.
  • Eddy: What's that stupid sound?
  • Chester: If you must know, it's Lovejoy's bees.
  • George: Replied Chester.
  • Chester: They're in these beehives he told me about. I'm taking them to the station today. His pet bees make some great honey; that's what I've heard anyway. And he says he even shares it with his friends.
  • George: Just then, Skinner the diesel engine hummed in.
  • Skinner: Be careful when around bees, you two. You know they might sting you!
  • George: Eddy didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • Skinner: Keep up the punctual work, Chester.
  • George: Called Skinner. And set off to see Spongebob at the next station. Snap and Bloo the tank engine friends were busy arranging cars. But they scampered off when they saw Skinner.
  • Skinner: *chuckles* I'll never forget the first time I met those two.
  • George: Laughed Skinner.
  • Skinner: I thought I would have gone crazy. Luckily, that well-mannered Edd engine settled things out.
  • Spongebob: Edd is the only one I know who can make engines like Snap and Bloo behave!
  • George: Chuckled Spongebob.
  • Spongebob: Sometimes, I feel like they're jellyfish- or in your case, bees when I'm around them.
  • Skinner: Ah, a well appropriate name.
  • George: Replied Skinner.
  • Skinner: They're hoodlums when they start buzzing around like the terrors they are.
  • George: Eddy bustled in.
  • Eddy: What?! Bob, don't tell me you're chicken of bees. They're measly insects for crying out loud! Don't let that loser diesel fill your head with such bunk!
  • Spongebob: His name's Seymour Skinner and he wasn't we were-
  • Eddy: I wouldn't care how many were swarming around me! I'd let off steam so hard they'd never come back to our railway!
  • Spongebob: *laughs* Buzz, buzz, buzz, Eddy.
  • George: Retorted Spongebob.

Quote 2

  • George: So the bee stung Eddy right on the nose.
  • Eddy: *gets stung* *screams hysterically* BEE STING!!!!
  • George: screamed Eddy. He had enough.
  • Eddy (as he puffed away): MAKE IT STOP!!!!
  • George: What they didn't know was that they left all their coaches behind, they tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the bees.

Quote 3

  • Nazz: Not cool, nothing's working, Eddy.
  • George: Said Nazz.
  • Nazz: Hey! Why don't we go back to the orchard and maybe the bees will fly into another hive?!
  • George: Eddy's reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. Reverend Lovejoy was waiting anxiously for Eddy. When he arrived, the bees swarm straight into their new home.
  • Eddy (in unison): That's right! Off with ya!!!
  • Nazz: Come on, dude!
  • George: Said Nazz.
  • Nazz: Let's get you a good hose-down!
  • George: Later that evening, Eddy was resting in the shed when Reverend Lovejoy came to see him.
  • Lovejoy: Thank you for saving the bees.
  • George: He said.
  • Lovejoy: Unfortunately, it isn't Christmas because I would call you "Eddy the Red-nosed engine"!
  • George: Everyone laughed except Eddy.
  • Eddy: How corny can you get?!!!
  • George: But instead they decided to call Eddy, "The Bee's Knees" which means they thought he was more useful than ever.

  • George: I'm sorry to say that Rudy became very puffed-up in his smoke box.
  • Rudy: Wow. Ed thinks I'm fantastic! I totally agree!
  • George: He whistled as he swooshed along the line. One day, Vince McMahon came to see him.
  • Vince: You've been doing great with your work I hear. I think you're ready for the next lesson: Handling freight cars.
  • George: Every wise engine knows that you cannot trust freight cars. The other engines warned Rudy, but he took no notice.

Quote 2

  • George: Then he came back to take the loaded cars away. But they were comfortable and didn't want to move.

  • Freight Cars: We'll get even....

  • Freight Cars: ON! ON! ON!
  • George: yelled the cars. Rudy fought hard, but still, they forced him on and on!

  • Rudy: I'm sorry, Mr. McMahon.
  • George: He said to Vince McMahon.
  • Rudy: This was my fault! I should have listened to Spongebob. I ain't a role model. I just feel dumb.
  • Vince: Well, Rudy.
  • George: Replied Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: Do you know the kind of chaos cars do now?
  • Rudy: Yeah, I really do know now. I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to send me away to the scrapyards!
  • Vince: Whoa, let's not get too ahead of ourselves!
  • George: Laughed Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: No, Rudy, I won't send you to the scrapyards. But I will be sending you for some much-needed repairs.

  • Spongebob: This branchline's just a greasy spoon without you.
  • George: Said Spongebob.

  • George: All the engines were busy too. Spongebob was waiting for his next journey.
  • Spongebob (in unison to himself): I'm ready...I'm ready...
  • George: Near him stood a green and red bus. But he didn't look friendly like Milhouse. The bus growled as he gazed at the happy passengers.
  • Stromboli: Stupido nonenso!
  • George: He grumbled.
  • Stromboli: I never would deliver-a passegeri if I-a knew. I would have had-a the severe incident. That would-a been-a most gravi.
  • Spongebob: Boy, it's a good thing you didn't.
  • George: Said Spongebob.
  • Spongebob: That wouldn't have been much fun for them. *laughs*
  • Stromboli: (grunts) All you-a treni live for is-a fun! Someday, railways get-a torn apart!
  • George: Spongebob felt shocked at such an idea.
  • Spongebob: *gasps like he did in the Spongebob Squarepants episode, Procrastination* That is not true! My friend, Milhouse is a bus, but he likes our railway. He may make a joke about it from time to time, but never about tearing it up!
  • Stromboli: HMPH!
  • George: Growled the Bus.
  • Stromboli: I-a know this Milhouse. He much too piccolo to be give-a the title of-a the bus!
  • George: Spongebob took no notice.
  • (Stromboli exits scene)
  • (Conductor blows whistle)
  • Spongebob: That bus is just a big ol' grump.
  • George: He thought. As he steamed away. At the junction, Spongebob told Rudy all about him.
  • Rudy: His name is Stromboli.
  • George: chuckled Rudy, and then he puffed happily away.
  • (scene fades into Rudy puffing along the line where Timmy and his coaches cameo in the background)
  • George: But that afternoon when the 2 engines met again, Rudy was no longer laughing.
  • Rudy: Stromboli's friend is here!
  • George: he said.
  • Rudy: He's every bit as bad as him! He's bringing Stromboli's passengers home to let Stromboli free to steal ours!
  • Spongebob: He can't do that, Rudy!
  • George: objected Spongebob.
  • Rudy: Word is that Stromboli said that he can get the passengers to the station faster before us.
  • Spongebob: Barnacles! It's much further by road!
  • Rudy: Yes!
  • George: continued Rudy.
  • Rudy: But Stromboli said that he knows a shortcut! *puffs away*
  • George: That evening, the engines were preparing for the homeward rush.
  • Spongebob: *shrieks* Where are our passengers?!
  • George: They wondered.
  • Rudy: Hey! Look over there! It's Stromboli!
  • George: shrilled Rudy.
  • Rudy: Stromboli is a horrendous passenger thief!!!!
  • George: Stromboli was wearing a large sign saying "Autobus Ferroviaria". ("Railway Bus" in Italian)
  • Stromboli: Arrivederci, idioti!!!! (goodbye idiots!) I steal-a-you passengers!!!! *sinister laugh*
  • George: he jeered as he roared away.
  • Spongbob: C'mon, guys!
  • George: puffed Spongebob to his coaches
  • Spongebob: We got to see what that bully is up to!!!! *storms out of the station with his coaches*
  • George: Spongebob wanted to get back at Stromboli, but he wasn't sure how. Then, in the distance, Spongebob saw a man waving a red flag. That meant danger. The line here crosses a narrow road and there was Stromboli wedged firmly under the bridge.
  • Spongebob: I guess this is what he meant by his shortcut. (laughs)
  • George: Chuckled Spongebob.
  • Passengers: He tricked us!
  • George: Shouted Stromboli's passengers.
  • Passengers: He said he was a railway bus, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets. He wanted us to think railways are no good.
  • George: Sandy examined the bridge.
  • Sandy: Boy, howdy. This bridge is crumblier than pecan pie! But we gotta help the passengers!!!
  • Spongebob: You're right, Sandy. The fate of the passengers rests in our hands-or in my case buffers.
  • George: Agreed Spongebob.
  • Spongebob: FOR THE PASSENGERS!
  • George: Spongebob slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Stromboli wailed as he felt the bridge quiver.
  • Stromboli: *moaning* Stop it, idioti!
  • George: He shouted.
  • Stromboli: The bridge might-a collapse on-a me!!!!
  • Spongebob: I hope you've learned a valuable lesson about lying!
  • George: Said Spongebob. But the bridge didn't collapse. Spongebob made good time and all the passengers caught their trains. The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately Stromboli and his ways. He never learned sense.
  • Stromboli: *muttering angrily in Italian*
  • George: He's a henhouse now and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listen to them anyway

  • Carl: I'm sorry, pretty girl.
  • George: Carl apologized sadly.
  • Carl: But Ed said he was gonna strand the passengers.

  • George: He sighed and limped slowly home.
  • Sheen: Whoa, Carl! You really took one for me!
  • George: Said Sheen.
  • Sheen: Those no-good cars would never have penetrated the power of Ultra-Sheen!
  • Carl: You didn't tell me they would attack.
  • Sheen: Hey, I can't keep EVERYTHING in mind!
  • Vince: You never do. And you'll start now by doing Carl's work alongside your own. Maybe that'll teach you that there ARE consequences for playing sick!

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Vince: Another day off is just what you need to do you some good. I also have a surprise for you.
  • Carl: A surprise?! Is it a Llama?! No wait...is it a baby Llama?!
  • Vince: I'm sorry, it isn't a Llama. But you WILL be thrilled.
  • George: The surprise was Mac.
  • Carl: Oh, hi, Mac.
  • George: Said Carl.
  • Carl: I was waiting for when you'd come home.
  • George: They lit Mac's fire and he sizzled happily.
  • Mac: Ah, that's better. Just like an engine should feel. So, what's been going on since I was away?
  • Carl: Well, for starters, I see you just met Jimmy.
  • George: Said Carl.
  • Mac: Yeah! He and I are friends already!
  • Carl: Yeah...
  • George: Replied Carl.
  • Carl: If only Willie would take the time to get to know him.
  • Mac: Who's Willie?
  • Carl: Oh, he's someone new who came to do my work after my big spill.
  • George: Replied Carl.
  • Mac: Does he work hard?
  • Carl (narrating while footage of Willie was shown rocking and rolling with a passenger train): He's a busy worker, I guess. But he shakes when he's rolling on the track. Other times he may swing or make other shaky movements. His driver, Shrek calls it "Scottish Rock 'n' Roll".
  • Mac: Whoa. I totally get that.
  • George: Said Mac gravely. Wilt interrupted.
  • Wilt: Hey, Mac. Just heard Willie got himself in a scrap-Sorry, not THAT kind of scrap. He's stuck in a tunnel. Come on, let's go give him a hand.
  • George: Mac was pleased. He wanted a run and looked forward to meeting Willie.

Quote 2

  • George: Quite soon, they found Willie. *scene cuts to Willie in front of the tunnel* He was stuck at the far end of the tunnel, and was very cross.
  • Willie: Och! Me wee boiler! And me paint! Tunnels should be built like tunnels unlike this death trap! This railway disgusts me!
  • Shrek: Don't be stupid!
  • George: said Shrek.
  • Shrek: That tunnel is giant enough for engines who don't rock and roll like us ogres!

Quote 3

  • George: That evening, Mr. McMahon spoke severely to Willie.
  • Vince: LISTEN TO ME AND LISTEN GOOD! There ain't NOTHING faulty about that tunnel you went through, Willie! And the reason why you jammed it is because you tried to do your so-called "rock n' roll"! Tunnels ain't dance floors, railways ain't concert arenas, and you AIN'T A POP-STAR FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!!!
  • George: Then Mr. McMahon gave his full attention to Willie's funnel.
  • Vince: If you whine and complain about that tunnel again,
  • George: he said ominously.
  • Vince: I'm afraid I'll have to end your career on the Island, so far you're on probation for jamming yourself in a small tunnel. So you better start thinking now and do what's best for business. Do I make myself clear?

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by George Carlin.

Quotes

  • George: Mac the Little Engine loves all the sights and sounds along his line and knows them very well. One day after he had returned from being mended he was enjoying himself more than ever before. Along the way, he met Jimmy.
  • Mac: Wow, Jimmy,
  • George: He said.
  • Mac: If it wasn't for all the people and places I know, it'd feel like a totally different railway.
  • George: Jimmy laughed.
  • Jimmy Neutron: I'm most glad you're pleased. The manager stated "Let's mend the track so well that he won't know where it is." And I can honestly say it was a success! Provided, of course, you know what I'm trying to say.
  • George: Mac liked this hardworking diesel.
  • Jimmy: However, there is one bad detail.
  • George: Warned Jimmy just before the first station.
  • Jimmy: An engine is likely to derail there. And my theory is Willie's the kind that would. He'll definitely do his rock and roll along the line alright. Oh, and speaking of which...(in unison, Willie came tilting as he was rolling along the track)
  • Jimmy: I hope his passengers bring extra safety precautions.
  • Willie: Are you talkin' about Willie?! I'm a Scottish engine and I believe in Scottish speaking. Speak up ya wee ones!
  • George: Jimmy warned Willie about the bad bit of rail.
  • Willie: BAH! WIllie knows his way about. He don't need stinky diesels tellin' him how to do things!
  • George: Jimmy felt hurt. Willie banged around the yard then he puffed crossly toward the big station. Eddy was already there waiting for him.
  • Eddy: You're late, slouch!
  • George: He snapped.
  • Willie; Och! Willie knows. It's all that Neutron diesel's fault. He tries to tell Willie how to avoid derailment and then expects Willie to find his own coaches!
  • Eddy: Man, if that ain't bunk, I don't know what is.
  • George: Said Eddy.
  • Eddy: Anyway, let me tell you about diesels. One came to our railway and tried to overthrow Mr. McMacho! But I showed him up and he was vanquished! Piece of cake!
  • George: Willie was full of admiration. He didn't know that Eddy was boastful and wasn't known for telling the truth.
  • Willie: Send Neutron packing! That smelly Neutron diesel must go! *laughs*

Quote 2

  • Shrek: Careful! You're gonna derail us!
  • George: Said Shrek. But it was too late.
  • (Willie comes off the track)
  • Willie: OCH! Sweet haggis! I'm off me tracks.
  • George: And he was.
  • Jimmy: I did caution him.
  • George: Said Jimmy.
  • Jimmy: But I'm afraid he'll have to help himself back on the tracks.
  • George: The little diesel refused to move.
  • Mac: Jimmy, how can you think of yourself now?!
  • George: Said Mac.
  • Mac: Did you ever stop to think about the passengers?! How are they gonna to their stops?!
  • Jimmy: Pukin' Pluto! I can't believe I forgot about them! Right! Someone's gotta save them!
  • (In unison, "Go, Jimmy, Jimmy" started playing beginning with the very titular lyrics)
  • George: And Jimmy roared into life.

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by George Carlin.

Quotes

  • George: It was winter on the Island of Sodor. Carl puffed nervously along the line. His funnel had never been the same since his accident with some cars. Now the biting wind was trying to blow it away.
  • Carl: My funnel's acting all wobbly.
  • George: He complained.
  • Carl: I sure hope the manager hurries with my new one. He says it'll be something special.
  • Sheen: Carl, how many times do I have to tell you? Your special funnel is just a myth! Like the Loch Ness Monster or North Dakota!
  • George: Said Sheen
  • Abe: Big deal! In my day, we never whined about funnels! We were lucky to have never lost 'em. (chuckles)
  • George: Laughed Abe.
  • Willie: Och, All this gossip about funnels.
  • George: Sulked Willie.
  • Shrek: Well, join the club, we got jackets.
  • George: Put in Shrek, unenuthiastically.
  • Willie: Willie needs some sleep (falls asleep)
  • Mac: Don't worry about them, your new funnel will come soon enough.
  • George: The other engines were fond of Carl, but his special funnel had become quite a joke.

Quote 2

  • A.J: Something's dangling from above!
  • George: Shouted his driver, A.J. Carl came out of the tunnel a different looking engine. He no longer had his funnel.
  • A.J: This is what struck you, Carl.
  • George: Said A.J. And he produced a thick, cold icicle. They set off again. But without his funnel, the journey was very difficult. Then, A.J saw an old drain pipe lying beside the track.
  • A.J: That'll make an ideal substitute. It'll control the smoke properly the way your old funnel used to.

Quote 3

  • George: The teasing continued until at last the day came when his new funnel arrived. Vince McMahon proudly presented it.
  • Carl: Oh no! It's ruined already!!!
  • George: Said Carl. But Vince McMahon laughed.
  • Vince: Carl, you asked for a special funnel and that's just what this is. You'll see what you can accomplish with it.
  • George: Carl's new funnel had special pipes which made puffing much easier. 
  • Carl: Wow...I feel so masculine! Somebody call my mom!!
  • George: He hummed. Even Sheen was impressed. 
  • Sheen: I don't get it. Carl goes down the line like it's no big deal! It's like work's fun for him now! 
  • George: The engines don't laugh at Carl's funnel now. They wish they had one like it.

  • Vince: Now as you all know, my railway's very busy and I appreciate all your hard work, but still, more help is needed. A diesel is all that's available. Unfortunately, this diesel is someone I knew from my days in the WWE before he went mobile. So be prepared for...bad news.

  • George: He muttered.
  • Barrett: Well, I am impressed that you're all sterile and look perfect for SOME people to see.
  • George: The engines glared.
  • Barrett: But I'm afraid I've got some bad news! It's nobody's fault, but your own and former WWE Chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon should scrap all of you steamers and get clean and elegant diesels like me. Because all my driver does is fill me up with oil, flicks my switch, and I'm off to work without delay! However, all YOUR drivers do is fuss you about for hours, shoveling and gorging your rusty fireboxes with filthy, nasty coal....
  • Timmy (in his mind): Rusty?... Filthy?!.... N-N-NASTY?!
  • George: Timmy spluttered to himself.
  • Barrett: and fill you up with contaminated water until your smelly and disgusting water tanks overflow until you are ready, and some of you won't even survive till your next job! *laughs evilly and rolls away*

  • George: roared Bad News Barrett. Meanwhile, Inspector Gil was looking for his hat. Bad News Barrett seethed with fury as Spongebob and Ash pushed him back to the shed.
  • Gil: Aah! Ya sucked in Ol' Gil's hat! That was a rental!
  • Vince: I'm sorry about your hat, but thanks to it, we've got bigger problems. The heavy train's due. I'll need you take it, Spongebob.
  • Spongebob: Yes, sir!
  • Vince: Ash, will you please help too?
  • Ash: Yeah!
  • George: Cried Ash.

  • Ash: Yeah! You ready, Spongebob?! 
  • Spongebob: I'm not just ready...I'm Ready Freddy!
  • Ash: My name is Ash...
  • George: Soon they were whizzing through Edd's station. And next, they charged at Homer's hill beyond. They felt the drag of the heavy coaches here. It was hard work. 

Quote 3

  • Homer: Woo-hoo! You're early!
  • George: Said Homer.
  • Homer: What's Barrett got to say about us now?!
  • Ash: Word from Eddy is that he's sick to his boiler and griping in the shed!
  • Homer: (laughs) That'll teach him to talk bad news about us!
  • George: And Homer chortled away. Next day, everyone came to say good-bye to Ash.

  • Rudy: I'm better off without them.
  • George: He puffed to himself. But the freight cars sang songs rude and loud. Terrence, their leader led the chorus.

  • George: Soon Blocky was explaining his plan.
  • Spongebob: Hoppin' Clams, Blocky! That's so underhanded of you to suggest such a plan to Rudy.

  • Terrence: Cut it out, you doofus!

  • (Then Terrence's coupling broke, Rudy moved forward and Terrence fell apart.)
  • George: And he did. Then there was trouble.
  • Vince: So, Rudy. You don't know your own strength? Is that what you have to say for yourself?
  • Rudy: N-n-no, Mr. McMahon.
  • George: Sai-Said Rudy nervously. Vince McMahon inspected Terrence.
  • Vince: Just as I suspected. Your wood's rotten and your frames are shot. We'll put you back together and maybe you'll learn something from this experience.
  • George: Nowadays, Rudy only takes the cars when the other engines are busy. But they are always quick to warn each other.

Episode 99: Bulls' Eyes

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by George Carlin.

Quotes

  • George: Johnny the Tram Engine has cowcatchers and side plates. They help to prevent animals from getting hurt if they should stray onto the line. Trixie thought Johnny's fenders were silly.
  • Trixie: How very informal. You only need them because you're scared of getting hurt.
  • George: She flounced.
  • Johnny: No way, jose!
  • George: Huffed Johnny.
  • Trixie: Yeah, you are. A popular diesel like me doesn't have those things you call "cowcatchers", but I'm not scared of anything. I'd just blow my horn and they'd all go running for the hills.
  • Johnny: No they wouldn't!
  • George: Said Johnny.
  • Trixie: They would with me. Animals always move if you blow your horn and look them in the eye.
  • Johnny: Even bulls?
  • Trixie: That's right. Even bulls.
  • George: Said Trixie. Trixie had never met a bull, but she purred away quite unconcerned.

Quote 2

  • George: At the next station, a policeman was waiting.
  • Chief Wiggum (eating a donut): Excuse me, Ma'am. Just heard a bull made its way onto the tracks. Do an honest cop a favor and get him off of there, would ya? See that he returns to the Pickle Farmer. OH! Sorry, that's FARMER Pickles. I always get 'em confused. 
  • George: Trixie was excited.
  • Trixie: Now's my chance,
  • George: She said.
  • Trixie: To show that unpopular tram the way to shoo an animal away!
  • George: Tauros isn't really a fierce bull. But this morning, he was cross. He'd strayed from his field, crashed through a fence, slithered down a slope. And now, he didn't know where he was. Suddenly, he saw some grass.
  • Tauros (in his mind): Now for my breakfast.
  • George: He thought.
  • Trixie: Ahem!
  • George: Said Trixie
  • Trixie: Excuse me?! Time to move!
  • George: Tauros was too busy chomping to take any notice.
  • Trixie: Ahem!
  • George: Said Trixie again. But Tauros kept grazing.
  • Trixie: This isn't how it's meant to happen!
  • George: Thought Trixie
  • Trixie: How the heck do I look him in the eye if all he looks at is that filthy ground?
  • George: At last he did.
  • Tauros: *moooo!*
  • George: Said Tauros.
  • Trixie: Ah! Excuse me?!
  • George: Murmured Trixie
  • Trixie: Who do you think you are?!
  • Miz: You show him, Trixie!
  • George: Said The Miz.
  • Miz: He's no match for us!
  • Trixie: Yeah.
  • George: Said Trixie unhappily.
  • Trixie: You may think so anyway and I thought I did. But does he even know? Look at the horns on him. What if I bump into him and I hurt-I mean he hurts me...um...Farmer Pickles could sue us!
  • George: Tauros sniffed at Trixie.
  • Tauros: *sniffing*
  • Trixie: Eeeww!! Later! 
  • George: Said Trixie and that was that. Trixie did no more. Johnny was bemused and amused to see her back in the station so soon.
  • Johnny: Hey, Trixie! I thought bulls always ran for the hills if you blew your horn and looked 'em in the eye!
  • Trixie: Oh, shut up, unpopular tram.
  • George: Retorted Trixie.
  • Johnny: Oh, well.
  • George: Continued Johnny.

  • Timmy: What the heck's this about?
  • George: Asked Timmy.
  • Bubbles: Mr. McMahon has a plan.
  • George: Answered Bubbles.
  • Bubbles: Come on, Sweetie!
  • George: So they followed the other engines to the big station at the end of the line.
  • (Scene fades to Tidmouth Sheds and all the engines began whistling)
  • Vince: Engines! Enough of that already!!!!
  • George: Called Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: That's better. Now, earlier today, I received an important letter from a young girl who is no more than five years old. "Dear Timmy and all the engines. Please can I meet you? My friends say they would like to meet you too. You can come to my house for tea. But my mommy says there aren't any railway tracks to my house. Can you come to the station instead? Thank you very much." Sounds to me,
  • George: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Vince: You engines have many young fans that want to meet you. In that case, we are ALL going to the big city MANY miles away from Sodor!
  • Engines: (cheer and whistle)
  • George: The engines whistled.
  • Vince: Shaddup!!! Other engines will relieve you of your duties while we're at the big city. So I require you all to show them the ropes of your usual tasks.
  • George: As Cosmo and Wanda were going to the big city too, Timmy and Rudy practiced with some other coaches. Timmy grew more and more excited. Too excited for his own good.
  • Timmy: Man, I'm proud that I'm such an awesome engine!
  • George: He puffed.
  • Timmy: McMahon said so himself. I had a race with Milhouse once, I whooshed into the station and stopped nearly an inch from the buffers!

  • Timmy: Like this, Rude! (in unison, he ran through and broke the buffers)
  • George: he boasted.

  • Rudy: Uh, oh....
  • (sound of birds [when somebody in a cartoon is hit on the head] is heard as Timmy was shown with his eyes squeezed shut)
  • George: No one was hurt, but Timmy's front was badly bent. They telephoned Vince McMahon.

Both he and the paint can fell all over Ed. (in unison, Eustace shouts as he fell) Poor Ed!
  • Eustace: Stupid engine! You made me spill my paint!
  • George: Sneered the painter. Vince McMahon spoke next.
  • Vince: You look like a cake for a wedding, Ed!
  • Ed: CAAAKE!!!
  • Vince: But I'm afraid the royal train needs a clean engine. I'm sorry, Ed. I'll have to make other plans.
  • Ed: Awww...not fair.
  • George: Homer and Timmy were waiting for him.
  • Timmy: Boss, please!
  • Homer (in unison): Please, Mr. McMahon!
  • Vince: Whoa! One at a time. Homer?
  • Homer: Mr. Mcmahon, could Timmy get his branchline back?
  • Vince: Let's see...the both of you seem very sorry for your recent behaviors and spills. So I think you've both earned a reward. Edd will run up front to clear the line, Timmy will keep an eye on the coaches and Homer will be the engine for our important visitor!

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Alec: Timmy The Tank Engine had been working in the coalyards all day. The little pink engine was covered in coal dust.
  • Bubbles: I'm sorry sweetie, I can't clean you up tonight. The hose-pipe has a problem.
  • Timmy: *groans* I can't believe I'm saying this but a bath would make me feel much better, and the other engines will make fun of me.
  • Alec: But the engines were too busy arguing to notice Timmy. Eddy was talking loudest of all.
  • Eddy: Since I'm the most mature-looking, I deserve to get a new coat of paint. McMacho says I'm this pride of the line thing and-
  • Ed: Incorrection!
  • Alec: Huffed Ed.
  • Ed: Mr. McMuffin has said that about ALL us choo-choos!
  • Bart: Eddy's been this way all day.
  • Alec: Confided Bart to Timmy.
  • Bart: Eddy thinks just because he's getting a new coat of paint that he can gloat to all of us!
  • Timmy: Why's Eddy even getting one?! Can't you guys see I'M the one who actually needs one?!!
  • Eddy: Lighten up, Twerper. Hasn't Eddy always steered you right? Don't answer that.

  • Martin: O contraire, Eddy. Trees carry as much mighty weight as the average locomotive.
  • Alec: Advised Martin.
  • Eddy: Big deal. As much as I really love chatting with losers, McMacho probably needs me to pull the express!
  • Alec: And he huffed away. But Eddy was wrong.
  • Vince: Eddy, I'm glad to see you. You have to go to the yards to pick up an important goods' train. I must warn you it's heavy so be very cautious.
  • Eddy: Come on, boss! This is a new coat! Can't Twerper or Brat pull it?! They belong with their own dirty kind.
  • Vince: Useful engines don't argue with their boss!
  • Alec: So Eddy didn't.

Quote 3

  • Eddy: AHHH!!! HELP!
  • Alec: Cried Eddy.
  • Eddy: GO AWAY, YA STUPID TREE!

  • Alec: Then, he heard a whistle.
  • (in unison, a shot of Timmy's whistle blowing was shown)
  • Nazz: Awesome! Timmy's here!

  • Alec: Whispered Skinner.
  • Skinner: I'd get back to work immediately!

  • Bloo: C'mon! C'mon! Push harder, ya stupid klutz!

  • Snap: Anything you say, queenie!
  • Bloo (in unison): Pfft, whatever.
  • Alec: And sure enough, they could. That night, Vince McMahon came to see them.
  • Vince: Great work today, Snap and Bloo! I have just sent the diesel back to the works. Are you sure you two will be ok to do the work alone?
  • Snap: Can do, boss!
  • Bloo (in unison): Yeah, yeah, now how's about rewarding us?!
  • Snap: Skinner.
  • Alec: Whispered Snap.
  • Snap: We're sorry for our attitudes.
  • Bloo: Yeah,
  • Alec: Added Bloo.
  • Bloo: But that new diesel couldn't even keep up pushing a few measly cars!
  • Spongebob: At least he tried like a true friend. And know something else us friends do?
  • Alec: Murmured Spongebob.
  • Snap: What's that?
  • Bloo (snappily in unison): What?!!
  • Spongebob: They say good night to one another!
  • Alec: And so they did. But they still chatted about the diesel and his teething troubles all night long.

Episode 127: Busy Going Backwards

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Alec Baldwin.

Quotes

  • Alec: Blocky the Brake Van was feeling sad. Everywhere he looked he could see engines and coaches moving steadily forwards. They all looked confident and cheerful. One day he decided to talk to Rudy the Great Western Engine.
  • Blocky: Rudy, I'm always going backwards. I've been having thoughts of going forwards. I could be a natural born leader if you know what I mean.
  • Homer: You?! A leader?! You can't even pull cars without an engine! You don't even have a train for that matter!
  • Alec: Homer said. Blocky felt sadder still. Rudy wanted to help
  • Rudy: Don't listen to him, Blocky. You're as useful as the day you were built. You help me brake and keep my freight cars from acting up when we go down hills.
  • Blocky: I know, Rudy. But it would be so much fun to go forwards at least once instead of seeing the world sliding away from me.
  • Alec: The freight cars were cross with Blocky.
  • Car #1: Who's he to start complaining?!
  • Car #2: He's lucky enough to be able to look after us.
  • Car #3: Let's teach him a lesson!
  • Alec: The freight cars decided to carry out their plan when they reached Homer's hill. When they were nearly at the top, they played their tricks.
  • Cars: Ready, steady go!
  • Alec: And they jerked at a coupling...which broke.
  • (snap)
  • Rudy: Oh no! Blockyyyy!!!!
  • Cars: We're making your wish come true, Blocky! Follow the leader!
  • Alec: Yelled the freight cars. Blocky was still in a state of shock so he didn't know what to think. And he couldn't ask the conductor. He had jumped clear.
  • Cars: Faster! Faster! As fast as you want!
  • Alec: Shouted the freight cars! Suddenly, Blocky found it fun. But, the fun was soon over. A crossing lay ahead and the gates were closed. Blocky couldn't stop. Worse still, Blocky now realized he was on the wrong track. There ahead...was Homer!
  • Homer: Save me, Jebus!
  • Alec: The signalman changed the points just in time.
  • Homer: Oh, I've never been so relieved!
  • Cars: On! On! Faster!
  • Alec: Cried the Freight Cars. Suddenly, he saw Eddy pulling a long slow train.
  • Eddy: Holy cow!
  • Blocky: Look out, Eddy!!! SOMEBODY HELP!!!
  • Alec: A quick-thinking shunter did. Just in time.
  • (Shunter switches Blocky onto another line and out of Eddy's way.)
  • Eddy: What the heck was that?!!
  • Alec: Exclaimed Eddy. The signalman warned the stationmaster at the next station
  • Signalman: There's a runaway coming!
  • Joe: Oh gosh! We'll send him into the sidings straight away!
  • Blocky: WAAAA!!! HELP! HELP!
  • Alec: Called Blocky again. Blocky saw some buffers.
  • Blocky: Thank goodness! I'm saved!
  • Alec: But the points to the buffers weren't set.
  • Blocky: Oh no! Not back on the main track!
  • Alec: Meanwhile, Rudy was racing to the rescue.
  • Rudy: *pants* I'm coming, Blocky! *pants*
  • Alec: Blocky sped past Ed.
  • Ed: Baron O' Beef Dip?!
  • Alec: More danger lay ahead. Men were working on a bridge, but they had been warned by the runaway Blocky and his freight cars. They diverted him on old sidings. Straight into a muddy pool.
  • (SPLASH!)
  • Blocky: Oh! Finally! Glad that's all over.
  • Alec: Rudy arrived and when he saw Blocky, he could only smile.
  • Rudy: Well, that's one way to stop a runaway block.
  • Alec: That night, Blocky spoke to Rudy.
  • Blocky: Rudy, I'm very sorry for all that melee today.
  • Rudy: Ah, that's ok, Blocky. But what was it like going forwards for you?
  • Blocky: Oh, it was the best fun ever!
  • Alec: Decided Blocky.
  • Blocky: But I think I'm grateful to look forward to the future. And that's staying busy going backwards from now on!

Quotes

  • Shrek: I'll play your trick tonight!

  • Willie: Bah! There are no haunted bridges! Bridges are as tame as wee turtles! (in his mind) As long as they ain't bitin' Willie! (reference to the Simpsons episode, "Bart's Girlfriend")
  • Alec: But all the same, he kept thinking about Jimmy's story. When dusk fell, he was keen to leave.
  • Willie: Aye, speed up, will ya? Wee Mac'll be in me place at the sheds by time we're through!
  • Shrek: Will ya hold your horses?! We still have cars to pick up!
  • Alec: Shrek replied. He could see their plan was working because Willie was nervous. When night fell, they set off. The mists were rising around the old iron bridge. Willie whistled and the sound echoed everywhere. Then, ahead he saw flickering lights. Shrek knew they were only insects that shine brightly at night. But to Willie, they looked like an engine. Next, Shrek secretly threw a rock from the cab into the ravine below.
  • Willie: (screams) GHOSTS!!!! THEY BE REAL!! NOOOOOO!!! TAKE WILLIE BACK! PLEEEEAASE!!!!
  • Alec: When Willie reached the safety of his shed, he closed his eyes tightly.
  • Shrek: Are ya spooked, Willie?
  • Willie: Sorry, Willie can't hear ya while he's sleepin'.
  • Alec: And Willie refused to open his eyes. He did though. When he thought Shrek wasn't looking. Just to make sure that he was still there.

  • Alec: Asked Bart.
  • Jimmy Neutron: The new quarry, of course.
  • Alec: Replied Jimmy.
  • Jimmy Neutron: This rock is useful for a lot of beneficial purposes, although it's quite dangerous up there.
  • Timmy: Why?
  • Alec: Asked Timmy.
  • Jimmy Neutron: Because of a big boulder. For some reason, I feel it's watching me.
  • Alec: Said Jimmy nervously
  • Bart: How the heck can that be?! Especially coming from a genius like you? Boulders don't even have eyes!
  • Jimmy: I don't know, Bart, but something seems eccentric about this boulder.
  • Alec: Just then Edd arrived. He was delivering a new piece of machinery for the quarry.
  • Jimmy: LEAPIN' LEPTONS!
  • Alec: Exclaimed Jimmy.
  • Jimmy: Tell me that isn't-?!
  • Edd: Brobot? Yes, indeed, Jimmy. He'll happily help collect the rock faster.
  • Alec: Soon Brobot was working hard.
  • Brobot: Working, lurking, smirking, jerking, something else with an "irking".
  • Alec: The men were pleased, but nobody bothered to check the boulder. When it rained, the workmen went away. Jimmy gazed up and shivered. Above stood boulder. Suddenly, a large slab of rock landed on the rails.
  • Jimmy: Pukin' Pluto!
  • Alec: Jimmy was shocked. Cindy was concerned.
  • Cindy: We better leave till the weather gets better. This stupid rain's loosening some of this rock!
  • Jimmy: I have the suspicion to believe it's that boulder telling us to evacuate the area.
  • Cindy: Oh, don't be so stupid, Neutron!
  • Alec: The next day the sun shown. Brobot was working harder than ever.

  • Bart (while peeping on his whistle): (screams) IT'S GONNA HIT ME!
  • Alec: Squeaked Bart.
  • (Boulder runs down the track and instead demolished the shed which then caught on fire.)
  • Alec: When Vince McMahon inspected the damage, he decided to close the mine. Then he looked at Boulder.
  • Vince: Something tells me this part of the Island should have been left...alone.
  • Alec: They moved Boulder to a hill close by the yards. Jimmy is sure that on a clear night, it is gazing up at the mountain. And that its sighs are being carried on the wind to where it once used to stand proud and silent. I wonder if Jimmy is right. Don't you?

Notes

  • This episode is narrated by Alec Baldwin

Quotes

Quote 1

  • Alec: Vince McMahon's engines love their work. Homer likes pulling the express. Timmy likes his branch line. And Bart likes carrying the mail. But none of them likes being a middle engine. It's no fun being stuck in the middle. One morning, Bart was cheerfully collecting coal cars from the smelter yards...where Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda worked. They liked to play tricks on steam engines. Bart didn't want to fall for their tricks again. But before he knew it, he was stuck in the middle.
  • Bart: Aw, come on, man!
  • Alec: Chuffed Bart crossly.
  • Anti-Cosmo: Oh! It appears you're in the middle! *evil chuckle *
  • Alec: Anti-Cosmo teased. Kevin was cross. With coal cars in front of him and coal cars behind, Bart had to go slowly. Eddy was in the yards when Bart steamed slowly by.
  • Eddy: (laughing) Oh, look! Did you lose a bet with the cars?!
  • Alec: Eddy laughed.
  • Bart: You know, if you were in the middle, you wouldn't be laughing your stupid butt off!
  • Alec: Bart fumed. And he fumed all the way to the coaling plant.

Quote 2

  • Alec: Ed arrived to pick up coal.
  • Ed (in unison): Got 'em, Sidney! Good for me!
  • Alec: He bumped into the coal cars and the coal cars bumped into Bart.

  • Chalmers: Vince McMahon's going to hear about this.
  • Alec: That night, Vince McMahon spoke severely to Bart.
  • Vince: Bart, you've SEVERELY disappointed me!
  • Alec: He said.
  • Vince: You know the rules: It's majorly dangerous for engines to go on the tipper's loading ramp!
  • Bart: Hey, it wasn't my fault!
  • Alec: Bart complained.
  • Bart: It was those anti-diesels who put cars in front of me and made me a middle engine!
  • Vince: None the less. You'll shunt cars in the yard until I've gotten to the bottom of this ordeal.
  • Eddy: How pathetic!
  • Alec: Said Eddy thinking no one could hear him.
  • Eddy: I could take care of those diesels with my buffers bent and my boiler busted! Piece of cake!
  • Vince: In that case, I instruct you to do Bart's run at the smelter for him.
  • Alec: Said Vince McMahon.
  • Eddy: *sighing groan* Oh great...
  • Alec: Said Eddy. The next day, Eddy arrived at the smelter. He was determined not to be tricked by Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda.
  • Anti-Cosmo: Hello, Mr. McRich.
  • Alec: Oozed Anti-Cosmo.
  • Anti-Cosmo: Come to a place from those with professionalism?
  • Eddy: Just hurry up with my cars and don't get in my way!
  • Alec: Huffed Eddy importantly.
  • Anti-Wanda: Whatever you says!
  • Alec: Anti-Wanda chuffed greasily. Eddy proudly chuffed up to his freight cars. He was certain he had fooled Anti-Cosmo and Anti-Wanda, but he was wrong. (Anti-Cosmo shunts cars in front of him)
  • Anti-Cosmo: Oh! It appears you're in the middle.
  • Alec: Chortled Anti-Cosmo.
  • Anti-Wanda: Just like the Simpson choo-choo! *goofy chuckle*
  • Alec: Jeered Anti-Wanda.
  • Eddy: I ain't like Brat!
  • Alec: Huffed Eddy.
  • Eddy: And I ain't a middle engine either! Forget it! I ain't moving!!!
  • Alec: And he didn't.
  • Alec: When Vince McMahon heard the news. He sent Bart to fetch Eddy. This made Bart happy.
  • Bart(as he buffered up to the front cars): Lose a bet with cars, eh, Skipper?
  • Eddy: Shut up and go away!
  • Alec: Snapped Eddy. And Bart took Eddy along with all the cars to the docks.
  • Chalmers: SIMP-SON! Why, you're right on time
  • Alec: Said the manager.
  • Chalmers: But what's that big yellow engine doing there in the middle?
  • Bart: Oh, just...learning.
  • Alec: Bart replied.
  • Chalmers: Learning? What the could he possibly be learning?!
  • Bart: Learning how to let engines make him a middle engine! (laughs)
