Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Thomas Season 7 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is the number one blue engine. Percy is a really useful engine. James is a magnificent engine. Gordon is the most fastest engine on the Island of Sodor. Henry is long and fast. Here's Edward always here to help.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas and The Missing Christmas Tree)
  • George Carlin: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected on the Island of Sodor. All the engines were busy with the final preparations. Sir Topham Hatt wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Sir Topham Hatt was now waiting impatiently for Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Quickly now.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Thomas. Duck can look after Annie and Clarabel until you get back.
  • Thomas: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Promised Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Thomas: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas as he set off on his important mission. Thomas collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Thomas: I mustn't be late.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Thomas: Sir Topham Hatt is relying on me.
  • George Carlin: Whistling bravely, Thomas tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Thomas was snowed under. Meanwhile the other engines waited and waited. They were grumbling about Thomas for being late.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Silence!
  • George Carlin: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • George Carlin: The engines now felt sorry for Thomas and cold but confident the twins set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: Hush!
  • George Carlin: Said Donald.
  • Donald: I can hear something.
  • Douglas: Probably the wind.
  • George Carlin: Said Douglas.
  • Thomas: Help!
  • Donald: No listen.
  • George Carlin: Insisted Donald.
  • Thomas: Over here!
  • Douglas: Oh, it's Thomas. Come on the poor wee engine must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • George Carlin: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Thomas' driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Thomas and the precious christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Sir Topham Hatt greeted them warmly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • George Carlin: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: One, two, three!
  • George Carlin: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Ladies and gentlemen and children, i give you three cheers for Thomas the Tank Engine and all his friends who had made this ocasion possible.
  • George Carlin: Then there was a familiar whirring sound. Percy and Toby smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Harold the Helicopter touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Santa Claus. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Thomas: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Thomas to Percy.
  • Thomas: But it was worth it for this party. Happy holidays, Percy. Happy holidays, everyone.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Snow Song)
  • Children: (singing) You wake to the silence the bright afterglow. Now there's a surprise for what do you know. It's snowing. Look, it's snowing. Little Jack Frost has been busy last night. The Island of Sodor is a blanket of white 'Cause it's snowing. Yes, it's snowing. White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Snow, snow, snow, snow. There in the valley someone you'll know. The little blue train finds his way through the snow. Whistle blowing. Yes, it's snowing. It's a beautiful world; It's a lovely day. Cherish this moment, remember this day 'Cause it's snowing. Yes, it's snowing. White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow.
  • (Children laughing)
  • Children: (singing) White winter wonderland. Beautiful day. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Snow, snow, snow, snow. Stay, stay, please stay.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Refreshment Lady's Stand)
  • Michael Brandon: It was a hot summer's day on the Island of Sodor. The engines were busy taking freight cars full of slate from the quarry. The heat and dust made their axles ache.
  • Skarloey: We shunted every freight car in the quarry today.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Skarloey.
  • Peter Sam: But I'm too thirsty to feel useful.
  • Michael Brandon: Complained Peter Sam. The summer sunshine made people thirsty too. The refreshment lady was keeping very busy at the refreshment stand. The next day, Sir Topham Hatt had news for Peter Sam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: The refreshment lady nees a place for another refreshment stand.
  • Peter Sam: I can find her a beautiful place.
  • Refreshment Lady: I knew it. It will be a piece of cake.
  • Peter Sam: But refreshment stands don't live in cakes.
  • Refreshment Lady: It's just my way of saying it would be fun and easy to find the right place here.
  • Michael Brandon: Peter Sam puffed along to the woodland way and the old castle causeway and the whispering waterfall.
  • Refreshment Lady: Thank you, Peter Sam.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the refreshment lady.
  • Refreshment Lady: But I don't know what to do. I can't make up my mind. What a shame I can't build a refreshment stand at each place.
  • Michael Brandon: Peter Sam was very disappointed. He didn't feel useful. That night, there was a storm. Lightning flashed and thunder crashed. The rain poured down. All the engines were talking excitedly about the storm, except Peter Sam. He was thinking about the refreshment lady's stand. The next morning, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Peter Sam, I want you to go and help Rusty clear the storm damage.
  • Peter Sam: Yes sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Peter Sam said and hurried away. At last, he thought he could be really useful. Peter Sam soon found Rusty. The storm had swept the shed onto the line.
  • Rusty: Driver says the shed is useless now.
  • Peter Sam: It's not a shed.
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Peter Sam.
  • Peter Sam: It's an old railway coach.
  • Michael Brandon: And that gave him an idea. Back at the yards, his driver spoke to Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Peter Sam's Driver: Peter Sam thinks this old coach could be a refreshment stand.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Hmm, I'll have just to take a look. I'm sure he can repair it.
  • Michael Brandon: Agreed Sir Topham Hatt. Sir Topham Hatt was right. In no time at all, the old coach had turned into a refreshment stand on wheels. The refreshment lady could hardly believe her eyes.
  • Refreshment Lady: Oooh, it's beautiful. I told you it would be a piece of cake.
  • Michael Brandon: Sir Topham Hatt paused for a moment.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Eh, um, with many cakes in it I'm sure.
  • Michael Brandon: Then he turned to Peter Sam.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: And you shall pull the refreshment stand special.
  • Peter Sam: I'll be proud to, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Peter Sam. Now the refreshment lady serves refreshments at all her favorite places. At woodland way, the old castle causeway and whispering waterfall. Peter Sam is a happy engine.
  • Peter Sam: I told you it would be a piece of cake.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Red Balloon)
  • Children: (singing) There's so much to see on the Island of Sodor, Waterfalls and windmills, valleys of green. All this and more on the Island of Sodor, Colourful carpet for all to see.
  • Girl: (singing) People happily ride round the Island Flying so high in a big red balloon.
  • Children: (singing) From mountains high and down to the seaside Everyone wishing they'll all come back soon High in the red balloon Up above looking down on everyone You can touch the moon High in the red balloon Floating and spinning and climbing and rising Way up high, look see the red balloon.
  • Girl: (singing) Float over castles and church spires below them Cricket being played on the quaint village green.
  • Children: (singing) Everyone waves at the big red balloon Prettiest picture they've ever seen James sees the red balloon Floating high, wishing he could be like him High in the sky He waits where the river bends.
  • Girl: (singing softly) Waiting to see his friend, hoping he will come again.
  • Children: (singing) Wishing and hoping and waiting and dreaming of flying high Just James and the red balloon.
  • Girl: (singing) James and the red balloon.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas Gets Bumped)
  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Thomas the Tank Engine puffs along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Thomas coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Thomas was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Percy the Green Engine was waiting, too.
  • Percy: Hurry up, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Called Percy when the signal dropped.
  • Percy: If you're late, Sir Topham Hatt might get a new engine to replace you.
  • Thomas: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas, but he was worried. Next day, Thomas hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Thomas saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Thomas: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Thomas, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Thomas' driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Thomas waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Bertie was waiting to take them home. When Thomas finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Sir Topham Hatt might be cross with him.
  • Percy: I warned Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy to James.
  • Percy: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Thomas pick up his passengers, Sir Topham Hatt was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Thomas looks around and finds nothing)
  • Thomas: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas. Thomas knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Thomas' Driver: Careful, Thomas!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Thomas falls off the rails)
  • Thomas' Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Thomas: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Thomas had to shunt freight cars in the yard. Bertie came to see him.
  • Bertie: I understand you need my help again.
  • Thomas: Yes, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Bertie set off to collect Thomas' passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Bertie drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Thomas felt miserable.
  • Thomas: I've lost my passengers to Bertie. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Bertie can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Thomas reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Bertie is a good bus, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Thomas spoke to Bertie.
  • Thomas: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Bertie: That's all right, Thomas. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Thomas: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And always will be.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Donald's Duck)
  • Children (singing): I found a quacker in my tender. She was very, very tame. But she quacked all night and through the day. She was driving me insane. My driver and my fireman tried everything they know to shoo the quacker away from me but she did not want to go. The quacker clearly loves me was impossible to nab. So now we have befriended her. She rides inside my cab. She quacks in stations big and small. She quacks at people too. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She is quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. Now everybody loves her. They love to hear her quack. But when we have to say goodbye, they ask when she'll be back. She's captured everybody's heart. She knows just what to do. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but she's my quackeroo. She makes me so happy with her little ways. So happy, it's true. Now everyone calls her Donald's Duck but i call her my quackeroo. Quacking here, quacking there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my little quackeroo. She's quacking here and there. She's quacking everywhere. Quack, quack, choo, choo, choo. She's my quackeroo. She's my quackeroo, she's my quackeroo.
