Part One

Narrator: Molly is a kind-hearted caring yellow tender engine. She is the last of a dying breed. Molly loves working with Thomas, Percy and Emily. One morning, a new engine had arrived on Sodor. He was called Neville. He had a coat of Southern Railway black paint all over him. His boiler made him look like a diesel. A unique feature on him was that his face was pale with makeup on it.

Sir Topham Hatt: This is Neville. He built by the Southern Railway in 1942, during the Second World War.

Neville: {in a Gothic voice} Hello, there, fellow steam engines. It's nice to be here on this fine railway.

Thomas: Dude, your voice is weird.

Neville: Ya do not ask dumb questions, 'kay?

Sir Topham Hatt: Oh, yes. He is the first of our engines to be a goth engine. Our railway has not had one until right now. Make him feel welcome, everyone.

Engines: Yes, sir.

Molly: Hello, Neville. I'm Molly. It's nice to have you on our railway. I'll show you around

Neville: That would be nice.

Narrator: So, Molly took Neville around Sodor: the branchlines, Crovan's Gate, the quarry, et cetera. Neville was impressed with the beautiful island, though he was a goth engine.

Neville: You got a nice railway there, Red. Thanks for the tour.

Molly: Hey, no sweat! Ya wanna be friends?

Neville: That would be great!

Narrator: For the next few days, Molly and Neville worked together with any job both were involved. One evening, Thomas took his last train of the day. He saw Molly at Elsbridge.

Molly: Hi, Thomas!

Thomas: {throws up} BLUUCH!!!

Molly: Eeewww! I had a great time with Neville. He's not broody, just misunderstood. {Neville puffs up.}

Neville: Evening, Thomas. Molly. I have to go take on water. {he leaves}

Molly: Oh yeah, and, Thomas. Neville and I are now best friends.

Narrator: Before Thomas could speak, the guard's whistle blew, and he left. Thomas felt upset when he heard. He thought Molly would be leaving him for Neville, like Emily did to Henry.

Thomas: Hey, Narrator! Don't bring that story up again!

Narrator: Sorry. Anyways, {clears throat} later the next day, he was helping Percy and Emily at the coaling plant. He felt upset. He was too preoccupied thinking about Molly to listen to the trucks teasing him.

Emily: Poor guy. Molly might be cheating on him.

Percy: Remind you of someone?

Emily: {unamused} Ha, ha.

Percy: She'd be like you, only not that stupid! {puffs away}

Narrator: Emily said nothing. Thomas saw Neville and Molly collecting coal trucks, and it upset him even further. He accidentally bumped four coal trucks into the buffers, and they derailed, coal spilling everywhere. Sir Topham Hatt arrived to inspect the damage, inevitably eating some sliced meats in the process.

Sir Topham Hatt: {chewing} Tis hont goo, Omas.

Thomas: Didn't your mother tell you not to talk with a mouth full of meat?

Sir Topham Hatt: {swallows} This won't do, Thomas.

Thomas: {smiling} Actually, I think it's an improvement. You can't get dirty right now.

Narrator: After the incident, he was sent to help Donald and Douglas at the quarry.

Narrator: Although working with Donald and Douglas, Thomas was still upset about Molly.

Donald: Och, what's wroong, wee Thomas?

Douglas: Ye don't seem happy to be helping uss.

Thomas: It's not that, it's just that I'm worried about losing Molly. She's my second girlfriend so far.

Donald: Och, that!

Douglas: I thought ye wouldn't like working with uss.

Narrator: Thomas explained why he had his accident, and told them about Neville. Later, Donald and Douglas took a train of rock to the quarry. Thomas set off with his. He had to do it himself. Percy and Emily were still too busy at the coaling plant. Edward was away for repairs, Duck and Oliver had their passenger trains on their branchline, and James thought he was too important to pull rocks. So, Thomas was struggling at Gordon's hill. Neville passed by with - to Thomas' discomfort - Molly.

Neville: Hello, Thomas.

Molly: Hi, Thomas!

Narrator: Thomas didn't answer. He was still upset at them. He made it to the top of the hill, and arrived safely at Brendam docks. He finally had enough of seeing Molly with Neville.

Thomas: That does it. I'm not going to be Molly's boyfriend no more. I'll just be myself, and do my work properly, and no mishaps.

Narrator: Thomas made that firm.

Sing-a-Long Segment

{Cut to Percy and Emily on the stage}

Percy: Are you ready out there? It's now sing-along time! And I want everyone of you kids out there to join in with the Fab Four on this next song. Are you ready now? And a-one-

Emily: Percy! Just a moment, Percy?

Percy: What is it, Emily?

Emily: I'm the substitute prop-girl, remember?

Percy: Yes, so you are. Well this next one is really wild - it comes on like Gang Busters!

Emily: Like Gang Busters you say? Well... don't worry! I got just the thing?

Percy: Now, as I was saying, kids, I expect each and every one of you to really-

{Emily enters as a Gang Busters member, and fires several rounds of bullets toward Percy, all hitting the wall.}

Percy: What in blazes are you doing?!

Emily: Well, you said you wanted something that comes on like Gang Busters!

Percy: Not you, you clod! I meant the number!

Emily: I got one of those too! {removes her Gang Busters costume and reveals she is wearing a prisoner outfit with the number 681}

Percy: Great. But what do you do about the other number?

Emily: {turns around to reveal 186} That's the one on the flip side! {laughs}

Percy: Ohhh... And a-one, and a-two, and a-

The Beatles:
I'm a loser
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be
Of all the love I have won or have lost
there is one love I should never have crossed
She was a girl in a million, my friend
I should have known she would win in the end
I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be
Although I laugh and I act like a clown
Beneath this mask I am wearing a frown
My tears are falling like rain from the sky
Is it for her or myself that I cry
I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser
And I'm not what I appear to be
What have I done to deserve such a fate
I realize I have left it too late
And so it's true, pride comes before a fall
I'm telling you so that you won't lose all
I'm a loser
And I lost someone who's near to me
I'm a loser...

{Cut back to the stage, the bullet marks are gone now}

Percy: That was just grand. Kathy, you didn't miss a single beat! And you were sensational, too Roger! All of you were simply super! Eh, pardon me a moment. Emily!

Emily: You hollered, Percy?

Percy: Well, what I would like you to do, is to create an atmosphere that will get the folks watching at home to really sing up a storm!

Emily: Don't you worry, Percy! I got just the thing!

{Emily exits the stage and activates three levers and presses a button. Cut to the stage.}

Percy: {as a cloud cut-out with a watering can and wires appear over him} Now, while Emily is setting up the stage-

{The watering can tilts to it's front and splashes water on Percy, and the wires produce sparks. Percy angrily exits the stage, and Emily is now wearing a flower.}

Percy: What in blazes did you do that for?!

Emily: Well, you said you wanted the people to sing up a storm.

Percy: Oooooohhh! You knucklehead! I was talking about the song!

Emily: Don't feel bad, Percy. Remember? April showers {squirts water in Percy's face} bring May flowers! {Percy angrily punches Emily in the face, giving her a black eye} See? Here's a black-eye susan already! {laughs}

Percy: Ohhhh! {peeking onstage} Everybody sing!

The Beatles:
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
Love you like no other baby
Like no other can
Love you like no other baby
Like no other can
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
Tell me that you love me baby
Let me understand
Tell me that you love me baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your lover baby
I wanna be your man
Love you like no other baby
Like no other can
Love you like no other baby
Like no other can
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man
I wanna be your man, oh
I wanna be your man, oh
I wanna be your man, ho, ho
I wanna be your man...

Part Two

Narrator: Later, Thomas was puffing down the track, still upset. He later stopped at a signal to let Gordon pass with the express. As he waited, he saw Molly pulling a goods train on her own. Thomas frowned. At least Neville wasn't with her. Gordon passed by, and Thomas was on his way home again. He had to stop at a station.

Stationmaster: Thomas! Molly has had an accident! You need to help her!

Thomas: I'm on my way.

Narrator: Molly had derailed at Gordon's hill. She had accidentally biffed the trucks and they pushed her down the hill. She was feeling upset. Thomas arrived at the scene of the accident.

Thomas: Molly! Are you all right?

Molly: Thomas? Can you please help me?

Thomas: {smartly} I don't know. I might not get help after you're cheating on me-

Molly: Me?! Cheat on you?! I wasn't cheating on you. Neville and I are just friends.

Narrator: Thomas realized his mistake and felt sorry at once.

Thomas: I'm sorry, Molly. I thought you were leaving me. {Neville puffs in the scene.} Neville! Can you stay here with Molly? I'll get Rocky!

Neville: Of course, I can!

Narrator: Thomas rushed away to get Rocky. As he left, Neville helped with the trucks. Thomas soon returned with a rather fussy Rocky.

Rocky: You interrupted my weightlifting, Thomas! And I was improving and getting stronger.

Thomas: No, you weren't, Rocky. You're a crane. You're built to lift heavier things than hand weights, which make you look stupid when you lift them. Now do what you were built for and lift Molly back to the rails.

Rocky: {no longer fussy} Hello, Molly. We'll have you back on the track in no time.

Neville: What did Rocky complain about his weightlifting?

Thomas: Since James mocked him that he was better than him and can pull more than he can lift, Rocky's been wanting to be better than him.

Narrator: As Neville tried to picture James, Rocky swung out his crane arm over Molly and lowered his hook. She was already back on her eight wheels. Some workmen attached chains to Molly. One of the workmen hooked Rocky's hook onto the chains. Rocky lifted up Molly and placed her onto the rails in front of Thomas, who had backed away from Rocky a bit to give him space to put Molly down in front of Thomas, facing him.

Thomas: {worried} Are you okay?

Molly: I'm fine. Thanks for helping me, Thomas. You too, Rocky.

James: {unimpressed} Oh, puh-lease. All he did was bring Rocky for you.

Molly: {ignoring James} You're the sweetest tank engine I ever met, Thomas.

Thomas: {throws up} BLUUCH!!! {Molly doesn't mind.}

Narrator: Neville took Rocky back to the yard, and James was forced to take Molly's goods train, despite his protests. Thomas explained to Molly about his jealousy.

Thomas: I thought you'd be developing feelings Neville, because he was a goth engine.

Molly: No, I felt sorry for him, and that he had few friends on the Southern Railway.

Thomas: Hey, I used to work there! Well, for a short while.

Narrator: Neville backed down next to the two engines.

Thomas: Neville, I'm sorry I thought you were stealing Molly. You really reminded me of an incident that happened between me and Emily.

Neville: No, I figure that you two are perfect for one another. Let's be friends, Thomas, as Southern Railway engines.

Thomas: Suits me! We'll mend that bad bit at Gordon's hill first thing tomorrow.
