Transcript

  • (We open this episode with the Britt Allcroft Presents logo)
  • (Then we see the Thomas and Friends Season 6 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Alec Baldwin: Thomas is a really useful engine. Here's Percy. He is a very happy 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. Toby is a different engine, he's a tram engine.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Time For Trouble)
  • George Carlin: The Island of Sodor has many visitors, and Sir Topham Hatt had scheduled more trains. Gordon the Big Engine had to work harder than ever before.
  • Gordon: Come on.
  • George Carlin: He called to the coaches.
  • Gordon: Come on, come on, come on. The passengers rely on me to be on time.
  • George Carlin: Whenever Gordon finished one journey it was time for another to begin.
  • (The conductor blows his whistle)
  • Gordon: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Gordon: I like a long run to stretch my wheels.
  • George Carlin: Even so, Sir Topham Hatt decided that Gordon needed a rest.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: James shall do your work.
  • George Carlin: He said kindly. James was delighted. He like to show off his smart red paint and was determined to be as fast as Gordon.
  • James: You know, little Toby.
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • James: I'm an important engine. Everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time, that's me.
  • Toby: Sez you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Toby. Just then, Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your parts are worn, Toby, so you must go to the works to be mended.
  • Toby: Can I take Henrietta, sir?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: No. What would the passengers do without her?
  • George Carlin: Toby saw Percy by the water tower.
  • Percy: Don't worry, Toby. I'll take care of Henrietta until you get back.
  • George Carlin: Soon Toby was out on the main line. He clanked as he trundled along. He's a little engine with small wheels. His tanks will not hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal.
  • Toby: Good.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Toby: There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until James has passed.
  • George Carlin: Toby was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Toby before. Toby's driver tried to explain but the new signalman wouldn't listen.
  • Signalman: We must clear the line for James with the express. You'll had to get more water at the next station.
  • George Carlin: Hurrying used a lot of water and his tanks were soon empty. Poor Toby was out of steam and stranded on the main line.
  • Toby's Fireman: We must warn James.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman. Then he saw Percy and Henrietta.
  • Toby's Fireman: Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta hated leaving Toby.
  • Percy: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy.
  • Percy: You're taking the fireman to warn James. That's a big help.
  • George Carlin: Henrietta felt much better. James was fuming when he heard the news.
  • James: I'm going to be late.
  • Signalman: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: I didn't understand about Toby.
  • James' Driver: Now James.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • James' Driver: You had to push Toby.
  • James: What, me?!
  • George Carlin: Snorted James.
  • James: Me?! Push Toby and pull my train too?!
  • George Carlin: Grumbling dreadfully, James set off to find Toby. He came up behind Toby and gave him a bump.
  • James: Get on you!
  • George Carlin: James had to work very hard. When he reached the works station he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform.
  • Boy: Koo. The express is late and it's got two engines. I think James couldn't pull it on his own so Toby had to help him.
  • Toby: Never mind, James.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Toby.
  • Toby: They're only joking.
  • James: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Said James. Toby just smiled.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin The Island Song)
  • Children: (singing) Picture a land where the sky is so blue. A storybook land of wonder. A magical island just waiting for you. Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Imagine a place where the sun always smiles. The valleys are green as can be. The friends that you love are all waiting for you. Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Children follow the dream. To the land of make-believe. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true.
  • Girl: Follow the road that leads to a dream over the hills and mountains. Look for the skies with stars in their eyes.
  • Children: (singing) Island of Sodor will make your dreams come true. Children follow the dream. To the land of make-believe. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true. Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh. The Island of Sodor. A magical land where dreams come true.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Train Stops Play)
  • George Carlin: Stepney the Bluebell Engine was busy talking to the other engines. It was his first visit to their railway and he was having a splendid time.
  • Stepney: You are very lucky engines.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Stepney: Your line has got everything. It's long enough to give you a good run, and you have plenty of passengers. Then you have a quarry and a mine, so you'll need plenty of cars. Cars are fun. I missed them on our line.
  • George Carlin: Percy was surprised. All the engines thought cars were trouble.
  • Percy: You're welcome to take some of mine.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Percy: But you better ask driver first.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers agreed and the two engines set off. Thomas and Toby were speechless. Stepney took the cars to the harbour. Then he picked up the loaded ones and started back. Ahead was a cricket field. The game had just begun. Stepney and his driver had to wait at the signal.
  • Driver: Good.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We can watch the game.
  • George Carlin: Then there was trouble. The batsman hit the ball. It flew high into the sky towards Stepney's train. Clunk went the signal. Thump went the ball into a car, but neither driver nor fireman heard it.
  • Players: Stop!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the players but Stepney didn't hear them.
  • Stepney: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to the cars.
  • Players: Our one and only ball!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players.
  • Players: Wake up, Caroline.
  • George Carlin: They said to their old car.
  • Players: The chase was on.
  • George Carlin: Caroline coughed crossly and rolled down the road. Stepney wasn't hurrying. Caroline soon came up behind.
  • Caroline: Toot toot!
  • George Carlin: She wailed. The players shouted but Stepney was still too far for his driver and fireman to see or hear properly. They completely misunderstood.
  • Driver: If those jokers wanna race.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: They can have on. Faster, Stepney, faster!
  • George Carlin: Poor Caroline wasn't happy at all. She rattled along at twice her usual speed.
  • Caroline: I shouldn't be treated like this.
  • George Carlin: She grumbled.
  • Caroline: This pace is too hot for my system. It'll fuse all my circuits.
  • George Carlin: Suddenly, Stepney was nowhere to be seen.
  • Caroline: Yahoo! That silly train has run into a hole so we can't catch it. I can go home now.
  • George Carlin: But she couldn't. Her driver pounded Caroline on up the steep hill and then the other side toward the station. Stepney was already here when Caroline cluttered in.
  • Players: We need our ball back!
  • George Carlin: Cried the players and explained everything. The ball was nestled in some straw and the third car from the van.
  • Player: We found it!
  • George Carlin: Cried the player.
  • Driver: We're sorry.
  • George Carlin: Sighed the driver.
  • Player: Ah, you couldn't help it.
  • George Carlin: Replied the player.
  • Player: Now we must get back quickly.
  • Driver: You'll be lucky.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: Caroline looks worn out.
  • George Carlin: And she was. The driver spoke to the stationmaster and the signalman and they all agreed on the plan. Soon they rolled Caroline on to a flat car and a break van coupled behind. The players crowded in sight and Stepney pulled the train back to the playfield. Everyone enjoyed watching the game. Even Caroline was pleased. She doesn't think trains silly now.
  • Caroline: They have their uses. They can save the wear on a poor car's wheels.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Gone Fishing)
  • 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!
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Thomas, Percy and The Dragon)
  • George Carlin: Thomas and Percy are good friends, but sometimes Percy teases Thomas about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all. One evening he was dozing happily in the shed, but Percy wanted to talk.
  • Percy: Wake up, Thomas. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?
  • Thomas: Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was your really.
  • George Carlin: Percy went on teasing him.
  • Percy: I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight.
  • Thomas: Why?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas: I quite like the dark.
  • Percy: Oh really?
  • George Carlin: Explained Percy.
  • Percy: I am surprised. I'd always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?
  • George Carlin: Thomas decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead. Next day, Sir Topham Hatt came to see him.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I would like you to go to the harbour tonight. You have to collect something rather unusual.
  • Thomas: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sir Topham Hatt. Meanwhile, Percy was moving some freight cars into a siding. Henry arrived with his goods train. The signalman changed the switches and Percy waited on the siding until Henry had steamed by. Then, there was trouble.
  • The Signalman: The switches are jammed.
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman.
  • The Signalman: I can't switch them back for Percy. The workmen will have to mend them in the morning. It's too late now.
  • Percy's Driver: Hmmm.
  • George Carlin: Said Percy's Driver.
  • Percy's Driver: I'm sorry, Percy. But you will have to stay here tonight.
  • Percy: Where are you going?
  • George Carlin: Asked Percy.
  • Percy's Fireman: Home for tea.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman. Percy was speechless. He watched as the other engines went home to the shed. Night-time came and Percy began to feel very lonely.
  • Percy: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He murmured.
  • Percy: It's very dark.
  • (A screeching noise can be heard)
  • Percy: Oh! Oh! What's that?!
  • George Carlin: It was only an owl, but Percy didn't realize this.
  • Percy: Oh, I wish Thomas was here too.
  • George Carlin: He sighed. Thomas was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was.
  • (The Chinese Dragon appears)
  • Thomas: Cinders and Ashes!
  • George Carlin: Cried Thomas.
  • Thomas: It's a dragon!
  • Thomas's Driver: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: This dragon is made of paper. It's for the carnival tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Workmen lifted the dragon onto Thomas' load loader and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Thomas set off into the misty night. Percy was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Thomas was approaching him.
  • (Thomas and the dragon approach Percy and scare him)
  • George Carlin: Percy woke up with a start.
  • Percy: Help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Percy: I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes.
  • George Carlin: Next morning the switches were mended and Percy puffed back to the junction. Gordon was just about to leave with the express.
  • Percy: You'll never guess what I saw last night.
  • George Carlin: Gordon was in no mood for puzzles.
  • Gordon: I'm a busy engine. I don't have time for your games.
  • Percy: I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights.
  • George Carlin: Gordon snorted.
  • Gordon: You've been in the sun too long. Your dome has cracked.
  • George Carlin: When the other engines heard the news, they laughed too.
  • James: Look out, Percy!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled James.
  • James: Or the dragon may gobble you up!
  • Percy: No one believes me.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Percy.
  • Percy: Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all.
  • George Carlin: But Percy soon found out that he hadn't.
  • Percy: Help! Save me!
  • George Carlin: Cried Percy.
  • Thomas: It's alright.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Thomas. And he explained about the carnival.
  • Thomas: By the way, how was your night out?
  • George Carlin: Percy decided to tell Thomas the truth.
  • Thomas: Well, Percy.
  • George Carlin: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin It's Great To Be An Engine)
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • (Thomas' whistle toots)
  • (Following the last song, we find the end credits with Thomas looking at us)
  • (While they roll, the Thomas end theme plays)
  • (After that, the A Britt Allcroft Company Production for Gullane Entertainment logo appears)
