  • (The 2004 version of Thomas Season 5 intro is shown and we begin Thomas, Percy and Old Slowcoach)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas, Percy and James were looking at the early morning sky.
  • Thomas: Everyone's so much happier when springtime comes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • James: Everyone except Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled James.
  • James: He seems to be working us harder that ever. I'm tired of these coastal runs.
  • Percy: He just wants everything to be ready for the holidays.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Percy.
  • Percy: Anyway, salty air makes me all cheerful in my smokebox.
  • James: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James.
  • James: It's the countryside that really gets me fired up, it's the only place to be!
  • Alec Baldwin: And he puffed away to collect his freight cars from the docks. Thomas and Percy have to take some empty freight cars to the scrap yards. In a siding, they saw an old slowcoach. She looked very sad.
  • Percy: What are you doing here?
  • Old Slowcoach: They called me Old Slowcoach, and told me I wasn't useful anymore. Now I only have mice ride in me.
  • Thomas: Well, you may be dusty, but you look in perfect shape.
  • Alec Baldwin: The Yard manager appeared.
  • Yard Manager: Come along, I have freight cars for you to take away.
  • Percy's Driver: Excuse me.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: Can you tell us about this coach?
  • Yard Manager: Old Slowcoach; she's been here for years. She'll be broken up when we find the time.
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines were dismayed.
  • Thomas: We'll try and help you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas. But he didn't know how. Meanwhile, James was enjoying himself.
  • James: This is the life!
  • Alec Baldwin: He chortled, but he was heading for trouble. One of the fuel cars was leaking, and suddenly, it caught fire.
  • James: Oh, help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried James. They reached a siding, and his driver gave the alarm.
  • James' Driver: It's fuel, and it's dangerous.
  • Alec Baldwin: As Thomas and Percy approached the junction, they saw the smoke, and a guard waving a red flag.
  • Guard: Sparks from James' driver have set the cars a blaze.
  • Alec Baldwin: He called.
  • Guard: The fire's under control, but it's quite a mess.
  • Percy: You said the countryside run got you all 'fired up', James.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: But I didn't think you meant it in this way.
  • James: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James.
  • James: It was the stupid cars' fault, not mine.
  • Fireman: It's safe to proceed now.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called a fireman. Thomas and Percy now felt sorry for James. It wasn't long before they reached the station. Later, as they were having a long drink at the water towers, they suddenly heard a commotion.
  • Thomas: What's the matter?
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas asked.
  • Thomas' Driver: It's another fire at the workman's hut.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas' Driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We better see what we can do.
  • (Thomas and Percy race into the scene only to see the hut on fire)
  • Alec Baldwin: The fire engines had a big problem.
  • Fireman: We are completely out of water!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried a fireman.
  • Fireman: We can't use sea water cause' it clogs our works. We'll just have to let that building burn.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then Thomas had an idea.
  • Thomas: Why don't you use the water in our tanks? We've just refilled them.
  • Alec Baldwin: The firemen wasted no time.
  • Drivers: You're very clever engines.
  • Alec Baldwin: Chuckled their drivers. Soon, the fire was out, but the hut where the workmen lived was destroyed.
  • Foreman: The men can't sleep on the beach.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Foreman.
  • Percy: What about Old Slowcoach? She would be perfect for the workmen.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Thomas: Comfy, too.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Thomas.
  • Percy's Driver: What a good idea, Percy.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. They phoned Sir Topham Hatt, who agreed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: She'll be spic and span by the time you collect her.
  • Alec Baldwin: And she was, and very happy, too.
  • Old Slowcoach: I can't thank you enough. I feel splendid.
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines buffered up to her, and she set off happily for her new home. Everyone agreed there was nothing old or slow about coach, and she will always be really useful indeed.
  • (A nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Duncan Gets Spooked)
  • Alec Baldwin: The little engines were busy clearing their railroad of leaves and broken branches. Peter Sam and Rusty often work together. One day, Rusty helped Peter Sam to a water tower. Peter Sam felt much better after his long drink, but the freight cars were bored.
  • Freight Cars: Let's break away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Their loads were heavy and the coupling old. One snapped.
  • Freight Cars: Faster, faster!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted the freight cars. A sign read: Slow Steep Bends and Ravine Ahead. But the silly freight cars never saw it. Then, it was too late.
  • (The freight cars fall down into the ravine)
  • Alec Baldwin: Peter Sam arrived at the scene of the disaster. His driver sighed.
  • Peter Sam's Driver: This was our fault. We didn't secure them properly. We'll have to get help to pull them out. Sir Topham Hatt will be very annoyed.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: You will work in the yard until I can trust you again.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan was delighted with Peter Sam's dilemma.
  • Duncan: Fancy not securing your freight cars on a hill. They'll come back to spook you and your special funnel. Whoooo!
  • Rusty: And who's to say you're not afraid of ghosts!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Rusty.
  • Duncan: Ghosts!? Things that go bump in the night, Rubbish!
  • Rusty: Well I'll tell you a story that will make your funnel quiver.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rusty said.
  • Rusty: A long time ago, a little engine was returning home. It was a misty moonlight night. Suddenly, the engine lost control and plunged over the side into the swamps below.
  • (A little engine falls into the swamps)
  • Rusty: He was never found again. But many of workmen will tell you that when the moon is full, They had seen the little engine trying to get home. But he never reached the other side. So what did you think of that, Duncan?
  • Duncan: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Duncan.
  • Rusty: Never mind him, Peter Sam. He'd be frightened if he really saw a ghost.
  • Alec Baldwin: This gave Peter Sam's driver an idea.
  • Peter Sam's Driver: Let's play a trick on Duncan.
  • Alec Baldwin: The next day he spoke to Duncan's driver and fireman who agreed.
  • Duncan's Driver: We'll do it, tonight.
  • Alec Baldwin: Duncan had to take coal cars to the slate mine and then bring cars back. Duncan's driver decided as part of a plan to cross the old iron bridge.
  • Duncan: Haunted bridge, rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Duncan.
  • Duncan: It's as tame as a pet rabbit's.
  • Alec Baldwin: But all the same, he kept thinking about Rusty's story. When dusk fell, he was keen to leave.
  • Duncan: If we don't go now, Skarloey will take my favorite place in the shed.
  • Duncan's Driver: We have to collect our cars first.
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver replied. He could see the plan was working because Duncan was nervous. When night fell, they set off. The mist were rising around the old iron bridge. Duncan whistled and the sound echoed everywhere. Then, ahead, he saw flickering lights. His driver knew they were only insects that shine brightly at night, but to Duncan they look like an engine. Next, his driver secretly threw a rock from the cab into the ravine below.
  • Duncan: It's the ghost! Take me back! Take me back, please!
  • Alec Baldwin: When Duncan reached the safety of his shed, he closed his eyes tightly.
  • Duncan's Driver: Spooked are you, Duncan?
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his driver.
  • Duncan: No! I'm asleep!
  • Alec Baldwin: And Duncan refused to open his eyes. He did though when he thought his driver wasn't looking just to make sure that he was still there.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Mind That Bike)
  • George Carlin: If one morning you were to ride in Bertie the bus, he would ride down the winding country road with him, crossed over stone wall bridges and travel past Thomas' branch line. The you would hear Bertie's friendly greeting as he sees one of his friends pass by. His name is Tom Tipper the postman. Every day, Tom travels cheerfully around the Island of Sodor. He stops at stations collecting letters and parcels from Thomas and Percy's mail train. Then he delivers the mail to farms and cottages far and wide. The engines know that anywhere their rails wont reach, Tom Tipper would collect their mail and deliver it safely come rain or shine. He's always ready to load mail bags onto the trains too.
  • Percy: Thank you, Tom.
  • George Carlin: Whistles Percy.
  • Thomas: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agrees Thomas.
  • Thomas: You're a really useful postman.
  • Tom: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Replies Tom.
  • Tom: But where would I be without me van. We make a grand pare.
  • George Carlin: One day, Tom wasn't at the platform. A postman they didn't know dumped the bags on the platform and disappeared.
  • Percy: What happened to Tom?
  • George Carlin: Wondered Percy.
  • Driver: And his old van.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: No wonder the new postman looks cross. Trying to carry mail bags on a bicycle would make anyone miserable.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the engines were glad to see Tom back again. But he looked very sad.
  • Tom: The postmaster has decided my van is too expensive to run. The rounds take longer on my bike. I'm sorry, I can't stop to help ya.
  • Percy: I wished I could cheer Tom Tipper up.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Percy the Small Engine. He was just wondering about how this might be done when his thoughts were rudely interrupted. A man was shouting at Tom Tipper.
  • Man: You gotta come back to Sir Topham Hatt's office! He needs you to sign some important papers right away.
  • Tom: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Replied Tom Tipper.
  • Tom: This is going to make me later still.
  • George Carlin: He was in a hurry and being careless. He propped his bike against Percy's mail car and rushed away.
  • Percy: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy. But Tom was out of sight. There was worst to come. Percy's driver hadn't seen the bike and he started away.
  • Percy: Oh, no!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: Now they'll be trouble.
  • George Carlin: And there was. Percy's driver quickly stop the train. Everyone came running to the scene. Tom Tipper's bicycle was in pieces.
  • Percy: I'm sorry, Mr. Tipper.
  • George Carlin: Apologized Percy.
  • Tom: Never mind, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said the postman.
  • Tom: It wasn't your fault. But now I've only my legs to get the mail delivered. Whatever will happen next?
  • George Carlin: Tom Tipper soon found out. Next day he was waiting happily for Percy.
  • Percy: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Percy.
  • Percy: Is that a smart new van I see?
  • Tom: It is indeed. That accident did me a good tire, Percy. My chief decided my new van should do the job much better than my old bike and worth the expense. Now I can always be on time again.
  • Percy: So I did help.
  • George Carlin: Beamed Percy.
  • Percy: But by accident you might say.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin You Can't Win)
  • George Carlin: Duke is the hero of all the engines. This is a story about him. It happened long ago when Peter Sam was called Stuart and Sir Handel Falcon. Many people came year after year to see the mountains and the lakes and most of all, Duke. He always pulled his train, even on days when he didn't feel well.
  • Duke: I mustn't disappoint my friends.
  • George Carlin: He would say. Every morning he took his passengers up the line and stops everywhere they want him.
  • Duke: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Duke: Please be ready when I come back to you. Otherwise we might miss your boat to the mainland and that would never do.
  • George Carlin: One day, Duke didn't feel well. He was short of steam and needed to rest. His driver and fireman had just finish clearing his tubes when Stuart bustled in.
  • Stuart: Hello, Granpuff!
  • George Carlin: He teased.
  • Stuart: Are you short of puff?
  • Duke: Nothing of the sort. This is routine maintenance.
  • Stuart: Tell you what.
  • George Carlin: Went on Stuart.
  • Stuart: You're getting old. We must take care of you in case you breakdown.
  • Duke: Hmmph!
  • George Carlin: Hooshed Duke.
  • Duke: That'll be the day.
  • George Carlin: Duke couldn't stay cross for long. It was a lovely evening.
  • Duke: Couldn't be better! Couldn't be better!
  • George Carlin: He trundled happily. They began to climb, but Duke didn't mind.
  • Duke: I've plenty of steam.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Duke: We'll be up in the couple of puffs.
  • George Carlin: But soon, Duke's puffs changed to wheezes. He vows were leaking steam.
  • Duke: It's not so easy, it's not so easy.
  • George Carlin: He croaked.
  • Duke: But I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: At last they reached the station. Duke's driver was examine him carefully. Anxious passengers waited for news.
  • Conductor: Duke is going to take you to the harbour, but he might be late.
  • George Carlin: Said the conductor.
  • Conductor: So two engines are coming to help. You'll still catch your boat.
  • George Carlin: Falcon buffered up in front.
  • Falcon: Poor old Granpuff. What a shame you broken down.
  • Stuart: Peep peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Teased Stuart.
  • Stuart: This is the day!
  • George Carlin: He was coupled on behind.
  • Falcon: Are you ready?
  • George Carlin: Whistled Falcon.
  • Stuart: Yes I am!
  • George Carlin: Replied Stuart and away they went. When the reach the next station, the cavalcade split up. Falcon took Duke's passengers to the boat. Stuart headed Falcon's train with Duke coupled behind.
  • Stuart: Fancy me rescuing Granpuff! This is the day! This is the day!
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • Stuart: Poor old engine! Poor old engine!
  • George Carlin: But Duke still have plenty of steam left at him. His vows sounded worse when they were. He and his driver had their own little joke ready. They waited until they reached the hill.
  • Driver: Now!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Duke puffed and roared though he was pushing a whole trains' weight before him. The noise echoed everywhere. When they reach the last station, everyone cheered.
  • Boy: What happened?
  • George Carlin: Asked the boy.
  • Boy: They don't usually need two engines.
  • Father: Well.
  • George Carlin: Replied his father.
  • Father: Stuart broke down. Duke had to help him. It sounds as if he had a hard job too.
  • George Carlin: Duke and his drivers' joke had worked.
  • Stuart: Fiddlesticks!
  • George Carlin: Explained Stuart and he vanished in a cloud of steam. Duke wheezed alongside.
  • Duke: Poor old engine!
  • George Carlin: He teased.
  • Duke: It's no good, Stuart. You can't win.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Make Someone Happy)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was holiday time on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were working happily except for James.
  • James: Why should a splendid engine like me take messy coal cars instead of coaches? Percy or Oliver should do it, I'm too important.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was cross.
  • Thomas: James, why don't you think about something or someone else for a change? You'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel if you do.
  • James: Oh, please. Being important is the only thing for me to think about. Hah!
  • (We see Percy and Oliver watching Tiger Moth)
  • Percy: That plane's making a great deal of noise.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy to Oliver.
  • Oliver: His name's Tiger Moth.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Oliver.
  • Oliver: And it's flying around telling everyone about the fair that's arriving today.
  • Thomas: What are you two doing here?
  • Oliver: Sir Topham Hatt wants us to pick up a very special load from the harbour.
  • Percy: And I think it's got something to do with the fair.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then they puffed away. Meanwhile, James was collecting quarry cars from the yard.
  • James: Dustier and dustier.
  • Alec Baldwin: He grumbled. Then he saw Mrs. Kyndley.
  • James: She looks miserable.
  • James' Driver: What's the matter?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked James' driver.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: My sister has run to tell me she can't come to stay with me. I was so looking forward to her visit.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt soon heard the sad news.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We must cheer her up. Send Harold the Helicopter to pick her up inmediately.
  • Alec Baldwin: A few minutes later there was a surprise for Mrs. Kyndley.
  • Harold: All present and correct.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called Harold.
  • Harold: I'm uh here for a flying visit. Hurry aboard Mrs. Kyndley and uh fly the sky with me. Compliments of uh, Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: Oh, how lovely.
  • James: Harold's made my paint dustier than ever.
  • Alec Baldwin: Muttered James. But he was happy for Mrs. Kyndley. She was soon flying high with Harold.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: I have never seen the island like this before. It's wonderful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile, Percy and Oliver were at the docks. Cranky the Crane was unloading an old tramp steamer.
  • Cranky: Hey down there, you two, I'm paying lucky dip in the tramper's hold and all these are for you.
  • Percy: Wooden horses!
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy exclaimed.
  • Percy: For the carousel ride. It's going to be a very exciting fair.
  • James: It is indeed.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled James.
  • James: Sir Topham Hatt has ordered me to stop pulling coal cars and go to the station instead. Something to do with Mrs. Kyndley. Goodbye.
  • Percy: Well what do you think of that.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. Mrs. Kyndley was waiting for James with Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Now this is your very special treat. James will take you on a mystery ride and I shall meet you at your destination.
  • Alec Baldwin: James took Mrs. Kyndley along her favorite coastal route to Tidmouth Bay. When he arrived there, a big surprise awaited Mrs. Kyndley.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: Oh!
  • Alec Baldwin: She cried.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: You brought me to the fairground how lovely.
  • Alec Baldwin: Best of all Sir Topham Hatt invited her to make the announcement.
  • Mrs. Kyndley: I declare this fairground open.
  • Alec Baldwin: Mrs. Kyndley had the first ride on the carousel.
  • (Carnival music plays)
  • James: You were quite right, Thomas.
  • Alec Baldwin: James whispered.
  • James: Making someone happy does cheer you up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then together they watched the fun of the fair.
  • (The carnival music continues on as we hear a loud ding, and then a man laughing, and finally the carousel)
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Something In The Air)
  • Alec Baldwin: One day, Thomas was at the keyside of a small village. Fish were being loaded into his cars. The work took a long time, the fishermen were using old equipment and Thomas was worried.
  • Thomas: I'm going to be late for Henry at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas was rudely interrupted.
  • (The crate containing fish inside falls on top of Thomas)
  • Alec Baldwin: His driver and fireman laughed.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What a pong!
  • Alec Baldwin: He was glad when they were speeding along the beautiful coastal run. Then, they saw a man waving a red flag.
  • Thomas: What's the matter now?
  • Man: High tides are damaging the track.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reported the man.
  • Man: I've marked the spot.
  • Thomas' Driver: We'll go and inspect.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Driver.
  • (Thomas heads for the damaged track)
  • Thomas' Driver: It would be dangerous for heavy engines like Henry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: But for Thomas, it's safe enough.
  • Alec Baldwin: The guard left a red oil lamp by the damaged track to warn engines.
  • Guard: When we get to the docks, I'll tell them to close the line.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was waiting for Thomas' cars.
  • Henry: Pah! You're late and that smell is making me ill!
  • Thomas: It's the fish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And there's danger on the rails. That's why we're late.
  • Henry: Pah! You're the only danger on the rails, Thomas. Now stop wasting time and get my cars hitched to my train.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas' driver and fireman were in the yard master's office when they heard Henry's whistle. He was steaming out of the station with his long heavy train called The Flying Kipper.
  • Thomas' Driver: What route is Henry taking tonight?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the Driver.
  • Yard Master: The coastal run. It's the quickest.
  • Thomas' Driver: But I told you!
  • Alec Baldwin: Gasped the driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's dangerous for a big engine like Henry!
  • Alec Baldwin: The yard master quickly phoned the signalman. Henry roared past the signalbox.
  • Henry: I'll soon make up for lost time.
  • Alec Baldwin: The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Henry was far away in a cloud of steam. But when Henry reached the coastal track, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere.
  • Henry: I can't see!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Henry. Nor could his driver. And when he could, it was too late.
  • (Henry falls down into the deep water)
  • Alec Baldwin: As soon as the tide was high enough, Henry was craned out of the water.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Engines don't swim, Henry. You were meant to deliver fish not swim with them. You should know that by now.
  • Henry: Yes, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Henry arrived at the docks, Cranky the Crane looked down on him.
  • Cranky: My, my, Henry. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But take my advice, have a long hosedown first.
  • Alec Baldwin: But there was worse to come.
  • Boy 1: Look! They've caught all this fish and a green whale too.
  • Boy 2: It's not a whale, it's a monster.
  • Alec Baldwin: Henry was most upset. Thomas now felt sorry for Henry.
  • Thomas: Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice washdown. Then you'll feel much better.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Henry did.
  • Henry: I'm sorry I was rude to you, Thomas.
  • Thomas: That's all right. But can you smell something?
  • Henry: W-W-What?
  • Thomas: Fresh air.
  • Henry: Oh yes.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Henry happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Bowled Out)
  • George Carlin: Stepney's visit to Sir Topham Hatt's railway was coming to an end.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We shall miss you.
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Then he turned his attention to all the other engines.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: My railway was very busy but I'm pleased with you, but you need help. A diesel was all was available. Please do your best to avoid any, uh, ahem, disturbances.
  • Duck: What does that mean?
  • George Carlin: Whispered Duck.
  • James: That means this diesel is difficult.
  • George Carlin: Snapped James. And he was. The diesel surveyed the shed.
  • The Diesel: Not bad. I've seen worse. At least you're all clean.
  • George Carlin: The engines glared.
  • The Diesel: It's not your fault, but Sir Topham Hatt should scrap you and get engines like me. A fill of oil, a touch of a start and I'm off. No bother, no waiting. They had to fuss round you for hours before you're ready.
  • George Carlin: The engines were furious! Next morning, they held an indignation meeting around the turntable.
  • Gordon: Disgraceful!
  • James: Disgusting!
  • Henry: Despicable!
  • Donald: To say such things to us.
  • George Carlin: Cried Donald and Douglas.
  • Douglas: It's too teach him a lesson we be wanting. But how do we do it?
  • George Carlin: Their chance came sooner and they expected. The diesel was purring comfortable. An inspector watch the fitter making final adjustments. The wind tugged the inspector's hat. The diesel was ready.
  • The Diesel: Look at me, Duck and Stepney. Now I'll show you something.
  • George Carlin: He rolled proudly toward his coaches. Then, it happened.
  • (The Diesel starts to make bad sounds and breaks down)
  • George Carlin: Shaking and spluttering, the diesel stopped. Meanwhile the inspector was looking for his hat. The diesel seethed through furious. Duck and Stepney pushed him back to the shed.
  • Inspector: My hat!
  • George Carlin: Explained the inspector.
  • Inspector: You've sucked it through your air intake!
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bother your hat. The heavy trains' due out. You have to take it, Duck. Stepney, will you help please?
  • Stepney: Thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Cried Stepney.
  • Stepney: I like a good long run on my last day.
  • George Carlin: The engines were soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Gordon will take over from halfway so get the train in there. Good luck.
  • Stepney: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Stepney.
  • Stepney: We'll get there and be early too.
  • George Carlin: The cavalcade moved carefully over the rails and out to the open line.
  • Stepney: Now for a sprint.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Stepney.
  • Duck: I'm ready when you are.
  • George Carlin: Replied Duck. Soon they were whizzing through Edward's station. At next, they charged at Gordon's Hill beyond. They felt the drag of the heavy coaches here. It was hard work. At last they were running smoothly along the line toward the big station.
  • Gordon: Hello, you're early!
  • George Carlin: Said Gordon.
  • Gordon: That's one of the headlamp for old diesel.
  • Stepney: James says he's sick as boiler sludge and sulking in the shed.
  • Gordon: Serves him right were saying were out of date!
  • George Carlin: And Gordon chortled away. Next day, everyone came to say goodbye to Stepney.
  • Engines: Come back and see you soon!
  • George Carlin: Whistled the engines.
  • Stepney: And you're always welcome at my bluebell railway too.
  • George Carlin: Replied Stepney. Then he puffed away. What about diesel? He'd slipped out when no one was looking. But he left two things behind: a rather nasty smell and a battered bowler hat.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Double Teething Troubles)
  • Alec Baldwin: Bill and Ben the Tank Engine twins work in the clay mines and quarries near brendam docks. Their work is important but they can be hot and dirty. Sometimes this makes the twins naughty. One morning, they were feeling very naughty indeed.
  • Bill: That's my line of cars!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Bill.
  • Ben: It's not, it's mine!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Ben.
  • Ben: Yours it's over there.
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Bill: It's mine!
  • Ben: It's not!
  • Alec Baldwin: Their friend BoCo was worried.
  • BoCo: Stop quarreling you two or the only thing you had left to share is...
  • (Bill and Ben run into each other and derail)
  • BoCo: Trouble.
  • Bill: Silly!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snapped Bill.
  • Ben: Silly yourself!
  • Alec Baldwin: Grumbled Ben.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Bill and Ben, behave yourselves.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: It's clear to me that we need another diesel to help out. There's only one available. He's new and key to make an impression.
  • BoCo: If I were you.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered BoCo.
  • BoCo: I can back to work right away.
  • Alec Baldwin: Meanwhile Sir Topham Hatt was having doubts about his own decision.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I hope the new diesel doesn't cause even more confusion. He's bound to have teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he was right.
  • Derek: Oh, my grease and oil. I wasn't expecting this hill. Oh, what's that?
  • (Derek breaks down)
  • Alec Baldwin: BoCo came to the rescue.
  • Derek: Sorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the diesel.
  • Derek: I'm all hot and bothered. I've got teething troubles, you know.
  • Alec Baldwin: The news soon spread.
  • Thomas: Apparently it's teething troubles.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Thomas to Percy.
  • Percy: Hey, you two. This new diesel's got a toothache. Good luck.
  • Bill: Why does Percy want to wish us good luck?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Bill.
  • Ben: Because he knows we'll need it. A diesel with a toothache must be the worst diesel of all.
  • Alec Baldwin: Then their manager spoke to them.
  • Manager: You will take your loads to the docks and rest there tonight. There's a lot of hard work to do tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: It was dark when the twins reached the docks. They left the freight cars by the key and scurried off to the shed.
  • Duck: You two looked glum.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Duck.
  • Bill: It's the new diesel's fault.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Bill.
  • Bill: He's got a toothache.
  • Duck: He hasn't got a toothache he's got teething troubles. That means he's new and this causes some problems. In his case it's his cooling system.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next morning, the twins heard an unfamiliar whistle.
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, no! It's the new Diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: And it was.
  • Derek: Hello. I'll sort this train out. You take the front and I'll push 'em behind. Ha, ha. What fun.
  • Alec Baldwin: All went well as they set off. Then they came to a hill.
  • Bill: Come on, come on! Push harder, you silly diesel!
  • Alec Baldwin: Shouted Bill. But the diesel couldn't push any harder.
  • Derek: (pants) I'm overheating again.
  • (Derek breaks down once again)
  • Bill: Oh, pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Bill.
  • Driver: You know what?
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed the driver.
  • Driver: Let's try and finish the journey anyway. It means we'll have to pull the diesel as well. Can you do it twins?
  • Bill and Ben: We'll try.
  • Alec Baldwin: And sure enough they could. That night, Sir Topham Hatt came to see them.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Well done, Bill and Ben. I sent the new diesel back to the works. Can you manage alone?
  • Bill and Ben: Oh, yes sir.
  • Bill: BoCo.
  • Alec Baldwin: Whispered Bill.
  • Bill: I'm sorry we were rude to you.
  • Ben: And...
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Ben.
  • Ben: The new diesel was really quite friendly.
  • Duck: And you know what friends do?
  • Alec Baldwin: Murmured Duck.
  • Bill and Ben: Know what?
  • Duck: They always say good night to each other.
  • Alec Baldwin: And so they did, but they still chattered about the diesel and his teething troubles all night long.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Harvey To The Rescue)
  • Alec Baldwin: The engines on Sir Topham Hatt's Railway love brendam docks. There's always lots of work to keep them busy. And they enjoyed seeing new arrivals onto the Island of Sodor. An exciting new arrival was an engine Cranky the Crane was unloading. It was heavy.
  • Cranky: This makes my chain ache.
  • Alec Baldwin: Groaned Cranky.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This is Harvey the Crane Engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said proudly. The other engines thought Harvey look strange. Harvey was happy to be on the ground. He didn't like dangling from Cranky's arm at all.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: These gentlemen are The Railway Board.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sir Topham Hatt said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Tomorrow, Harvey will give them a demonstration. If it goes well, he will join the railway.
  • Percy: What's a Dimurstation?
  • Thomas: Demonstration.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Is when you show off what you can do.
  • Bertie: Like when Thomas and i have a race.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Bertie.
  • Bertie: Vroom! Vroom!
  • Alec Baldwin: That evening, Thomas had just returned from a hard day's work. He saw Harvey parked near the sheds. Harvey could hear the other engines talking about him. This made him sad.
  • Henry: Harvey's different.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Edward: He doesn't even look like an engine.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Edward.
  • Gordon: Surely Sir Topham Hatt won't let him pull coaches.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sniffed Gordon.
  • James: He's just Cranky On Wheels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • Percy: He's not taking my mail.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy. Thomas felt sorry for Harvey.
  • Thomas: Don't worry. Sometimes it takes time to make new friends.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey wasn't sure he wanted to stay when no one wanted him. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt sent the engines off to a useful day's work.
  • Harvey: Maybe might coming here wasn't a good idea, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey chuffed sadly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Harvey: But the engines don't like me. I'm too different.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Different is what makes you special.
  • Alec Baldwin: And that made Harvey feel better. Out on the branch line, Percy was having trouble with the trucks.
  • Trucks: Faster we go, faster we go. Pull him along, don't let him slow.
  • Percy: Help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Percy. His driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. He went off the rails at Bulgy's bridge. Luckily, no one was hurt. Bertie arrived and was pleased Percy was all right. But he was also very cross.
  • Bertie: You blocked the road!
  • Alec Baldwin: Bertie snapped. He was worried he wouldn't get the gentlemen of the railway board to the demonstration on time. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news, he went straight to Harvey.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need you to rescue one of my engines.
  • Harvey: I'll do my best, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey said bravely and he set off immediately. Harvey soon arrived and set to work.
  • (Harvey lifts Percy back on the rails)
  • Alec Baldwin: In no time, Percy was back on the tracks. The gentlemen of the railway board were very impressed.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That was the demonstration of all. The gentlemen of the railway board have decided you shall join the railway.
  • Harvey: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Alec Baldwin: Harvey said proudly. That night, Harvey heard the engines talking again. This time it was different.
  • Gordon: Well done, Harvey.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Gordon.
  • James: Very useful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said James.
  • Percy: You can take my mail.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy.
  • Thomas: You see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Different can be good.
  • Alec Baldwin: All the engines agreed.
  • Engines: Welcome to the Sodor Railway!
  • Alec Baldwin: They called. Harvey smiled happily.
  • (Another nameplate sequence occurs and we begin Horrid Lorry)
  • Alec Baldwin: It was a busy time at the docks. All the engines were working hard, pushing and pulling freight cars about. One day, Percy was late. Cranky the Crane was quick to criticize.
  • Cranky: These ships can't be kept waiting. They have important cargo. If they miss the tides, they will be delayed at the docks. You should look up to the ships and show more respect. You are after all only little.
  • Percy: We've got too much work.
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Percy.
  • Cranky: Then perhaps a lorry should do the job.
  • Alec Baldwin: Percy was shocked. He told the other engines what Cranky had said.
  • James: Stuff and nonsense!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted James.
  • Henry: We engines rerun this island.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Henry.
  • Percy: What if a lorry does arrive?
  • Alec Baldwin: I'm afraid he did. Along with two more. Cranky was delighted.
  • Cranky: Hey you down there. Your jobs done now. These lorries are taking over. One of them wants to talk to you.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorry was very rude.
  • Lorry 2: What's that steaming lump of scrap iron doing here? Be off with you!
  • Percy: Scrap iron? Steaming scrap iron? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: A little later, Percy met Thomas and James. Another lorry was being rude to them. Then he saw Percy.
  • Lorry 1: Oh, look. It's a little green goblin on wheels. Ha! You'd be scrapped. Just you wait and see.
  • Thomas: Well, bust my boiler. What a horrid lorry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Explained Thomas.
  • James: Despicable!
  • Alec Baldwin: Agreed James. The next engine to meet a lorry was Toby.
  • Lorry 2: Well, well, well. No wonder this railway's a mess. You belong into this museum, not working at the quarry.
  • Toby: I might look old, but I'm really useful.
  • Lorry 2: Useful? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: Just you toodle off.
  • Toby: Toodle?!
  • Alec Baldwin: Spluttered Toby.
  • Toby's Driver: Come on, Toby.
  • Alec Baldwin: Interrupted his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: Don't bother to argue with him. We'll go to the flour mill instead.
  • Alec Baldwin: But when they arrived at the flour mill, Toby was shocked to see yet another lorry.
  • Toby: What are you doing here?
  • Lorry 3: We three are doing your work now. You're too slow.
  • Alec Baldwin: The foreman spoke to Toby's driver.
  • Foreman: I'm sorry. Times are changing I'm afraid.
  • Toby's Driver: Toby might me old.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: But he's reliable. Come on, Toby. We'll go to the farms. They'll still use us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Toby trundled sadly away. His railway ran through a narrow gorge. But vehicles had take a steep and dangerous road. When Toby arrived, he saw the lorry from the quarry again. It was loaded with rock.
  • Toby: That lorry's in trouble.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thought Toby. And he was.
  • (Lorry 2 falls down the gorge and towards the ground leaving Toby speechless)
  • Alec Baldwin: The driver was thrown clear.
  • Driver: Rotten roads.
  • Alec Baldwin: He muttered. The wrecked lorry was taking to the docks. Percy looked at the lorry.
  • Percy: What's this lump of steaming scrap iron?
  • Alec Baldwin: He teased.
  • Lorry 2: I'll be back.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorry.
  • Lorry 2: So you can wipe that silly smile off your smokebox.
  • Percy: Ha!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Percy and wheeshed him loudly. Then Butch the breakdown vehicle arrived. He was towing the lorry from the flour mill.
  • Toby's Driver: What happened?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Toby's driver.
  • Cander: He was overloaded with flour.
  • Alec Baldwin: Cander replied.
  • Cander: And he broke down.
  • Toby: Not very useful now are you?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Toby.
  • Lorries: Grr!
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied the lorries. Then James whistled excitedly.
  • James: They're bringing in the third lorry on a barge. What happened to that one?
  • Alec Baldwin: James asked.
  • Tow Truck Man: Stupid Lorry was reversing and fell straight into the sea.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the Tow Truck Man. Later, Thomas arrived. He looked at the three lorries and laughed.
  • Thomas: Well, well, well. The brothers grimm. Smashed, broken and sunk.
  • Alec Baldwin: The lorries didn't return, and the engines now work even harder to make sure they'll ever learn.
  • (Following this story, we see the Thomas end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While the end credits roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the 2001 HiT Entertainment logo appear)
  • (And finally, we see the 2004-2007 Anchor Bay Entertainment logo)
