Transcript

  • (We see the Season 7 intro, and finally the start of Thomas and The Search For Fergus)
  • Michael Brandon: Thomas and Fergus the Traction Engine are friends. Fergus is the pride of the cement works. Fergus knows all the rules and obeys them. One day, Sir Topham Hatt brought Devious Diesel to the cement works.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need Diesel to help for a while. Fergus please show him around.
  • Fergus: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus unhappily. He knew that Diesel could be trouble. Later, Diesel was being careless.
  • Fergus: Not like that!
  • Michael Brandon: Snapped Fergus.
  • Fergus: Do it right.
  • Diesel: Don't interfere.
  • Michael Brandon: Sneered Diesel.
  • Fergus: You don't know the rules!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted Fergus. Diesel was very annoyed with Fergus and started plotting a devious plan. Later that day, he pretended to have news for Fergus.
  • Diesel: Sir Topham Hatt wants you to work at the smelters.
  • Fergus: Me? But I'm the pride of the cement works.
  • Diesel: Not anymore. Sir Topham Hatt says I'm better than you. So I'm going to stay here.
  • Fergus: It's not fair. I love working here.
  • Michael Brandon: But he knew that really useful engines have to do as they are told.
  • Diesel: (laughs maniacally)
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver arrived at the smelters.
  • Fergus: I wanna go back to the cement works.
  • Michael Brandon: Wailed Fergus.
  • Fergus: None of the other engines like coming here it's so scary.
  • Fergus' Driver: You're right.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver. Just then, the scrap diesels arrived.
  • Arry and Bert: Hello, are you happy to be here?
  • Fergus: No!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Fergus. His driver was scared too.
  • Fergus' Driver: Come on, Fergus, we're going to escape.
  • Michael Brandon: And for the first time, Fergus broke the rules. Sir Topham Hatt was enjoying a tasty fish supper when he heard that Fergus was missing.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: That's not like Fergus. There must be something wrong. I will send Thomas to look for him.
  • Michael Brandon: Fergus and his driver turn onto an unused track to find a place to hide. Fergus was frightened, so was Thomas. He puffed up and down the line. He couldn't see Fergus anywhere.
  • Thomas' Driver: We could search the old mine track.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: That line is dark and spooky.
  • Michael Brandon: Whispered Thomas. But he had to be brave and find Fergus. Fergus was on a siding. His fire had gone out. Then, he heard a sound.
  • Fergus: It's an engine!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Thomas: Fergus.
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Thomas.
  • Thomas: Whatever are you doing out here?
  • Fergus: Hiding. Don't wanna work at the smelters. Sir Topham Hatt is going to be cross with me.
  • Thomas: He's not.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: He's worried about you.
  • Fergus: Really?
  • Thomas: Of course.
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Fergus felt better. Thomas pulled Fergus all the way to the smelters yard where he knew Sir Topham Hatt was waiting.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Fergus, explain yourself.
  • Fergus: I ran away. It's scary here.
  • Thomas: Diesel told Fergus that he wanted him at the smelters forever.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Nonsense, Fergus, you are the pride of the cement works. I shall send Diesel to the smelters and you can go back to the cement works tomorrow.
  • Fergus: Oh, thank you, sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Fergus happily. Fergus knew he had a good friend in Thomas and he was still the pride of the cement works.
  • (It's Great To Be An Engine then starts after the story)
  • Children: (singing) Oh yes, it's great To be an engine And go steaming along, Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along All day.We're all so proud to be Famous engines And travel through the countryside. We're always brave when There are hills to climb. No mountain is too high! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as Your wheels go round Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. It doesn't matter Come rain or shine. There are always things For us to do. And in the cold cold Wintertime, We're ready. When you light the fire And stoke the boiler And we'll be there for you! Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Feel the wind around you As you push along. Puff puff puffing along All day.
  • Girl: Just think - how wonderful it would be. To live on the magical Island of Sodor, Helping Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends All day long, It would be like a dream come true. If only I could be an engine too...
  • Children: (singing) Oh yes it's great To be an engine As you're steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. Fly along the rails as your Wheels go round. Whiz whiz whizzing around All day. Oh yes it's great To be an engine And go steaming along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping along. All the people waving As you speed along. Puff puff puffing along, Peep peep peeping and Puff puff puffing Steam around all day!
  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Following the commercial breaks, The Refreshment Lady's Stand is the next to start)
  • 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.
  • (Gone Fishing is the next song to begin)
  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
  • (Once again, after the commercials, Bulgy Rides Again is the last story to start)
  • Michael Brandon: In the summertime there is no better place to be than the Island of Sodor. The engines are happy to show vacationers the wonderful sights to be seen. But this year, there was a problem. Thomas and Emily were in the foundry for repairs.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need to find a way to carry more passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Grumbled Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We have more vacationers.
  • Emily: And fewer engines.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Thomas: A double decker problem.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A double decker problem? Hmm.
  • Michael Brandon: This gave Sir Topham Hatt an idea. He drove straight to Bulgy's field. Bulgy is a double decker bus. He was turned into a hen house after he caused the silly accident.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Good news, Bulgy, i'm putting you back on the road.
  • Bulgy: Thank you, sir. I'll be the best bus ever.
  • Michael Brandon: Bulgy never liked being a hen house anyway. The next day, he went to the foundry.
  • Thomas: Bulgy!
  • Michael Brandon: Exclaimed Thomas.
  • Thomas: What are you doing here?
  • Bulgy: I'm being repaired, i'm going back on the road.
  • Emily: I think you'll be helping the new farmer.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Emily: He needs to deliver his vegetables around the island.
  • Bulgy: Vegetables!? Hmph! I'm going to carry passengers!
  • Michael Brandon: Soon, Bulgy was refitted inside and out. He looked smart and shiny. Even James was impressed.
  • James: Ooooo.
  • Michael Brandon: When Bulgy returned to his field, the hens thought their old house looked splendid.
  • Bulgy's Driver: We'll start in the morning.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Bulgy's Driver: You'll stay here tonight.
  • Michael Brandon: Bulgy was soon fast asleep. But the hens missed their old home. One by one, they crept aboard and went to sleep in the luggage racks. Bulgy knew nothing. The next morning Bulgy picked up lots of passengers.
  • Bulgy: All aboard.
  • Michael Brandon: He tooted and set off for the station. He was driving so smoothly that the hens didn't wake up. All was well until Bulgy turned a corner. Trevor was pulling a hay-cart.
  • Bulgy: Get out of my way!
  • Michael Brandon: He overtook Trevor. Bulgy swerved, the hens woke up, the passengers panicked and Bulgy's driver lost control. The hens were frightened. They flapped, they squawked.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: Stop!
  • Michael Brandon: Cried Bulgy's passengers.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: We want to get off!
  • Michael Brandon: The passengers were covered in feathers and broken eggs. They were very cross.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: This bus is full of hens!
  • Michael Brandon: They complained.
  • Bulgy's Passengers: We shall tell Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Bulgy: It's not my fault.
  • Michael Brandon: Sulked Bulgy. Sir Topham Hatt sent Bulgy to be cleaned.
  • Bulgy: Silly hens, silly passengers, you can have them both.
  • Emily: The farmer still needs help with his vegetables.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Emily.
  • Bulgy: A vegetable bus? Hmmm, hey that's not such a bad idea.
  • Thomas: And we're back carrying passengers.
  • Michael Brandon: Smiled Thomas. Bulgy is happy now. He has new green paintwork and a smart serving hatch. Sir Topham Hatt agreed he could become the island's only vegetable stand on wheels. Bulgy likes carrying vegetables. They don't lay eggs and they never complained.
  • (Little Engines is the last song to happen)
  • Children: (singing) Main Line Engines always boast how big they are, Superior by far. But Little Engines toil away from dawn to dusk, Without a fuss or care. Just because we're small doesn't mean we don't stand tall, And we pull our weight like all the others do. You'll be surprised, in spite of their size,Just what little engines can do! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do the biggest things. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Bigger Engines say little engines play all day, And they're not much use to anyone at all. But we're strong enough to deal with those trucks, That's what little engines are for! Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. Thomas, Percy, Bill and Ben, You can rely on them, These little engines are the best! Stepney, Duck, and Oliver, They'll give the trucks what for, You'll be so impressed. Little Engines, Little Engines, Little Engines can do most anything. They'll carry on until the work is over, They'll carry on 'til the end, They're the smallest in the station, don't underestimate them, they're not such little engines after all. They're our favourite little engines, They're mighty little engines! They're not such little engines after all! They're not such little engines after all!
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
