Script

Act 1

  • (We open this episode with theThomas and Friends Season 7 intro)
  • (After that, we begin the character introduction)
  • Michael Brandon: 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.
  • (A passing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby's Windmill)
  • Michael Brandon: There are many beautiful places on the Island of Sodor. The engines loved the pretty watermill, the peaceful canals and the castle on the lake. Toby's favorite place is the old windmill. The windmill is worn, it cannot make much flour now. Toby loves to watch the sails go around. And the miller is his friend.
  • Miller: Good morning, Toby.
  • Michael Brandon: One day, Toby was collecting a load of flour to take to the market. But he was busy watching the windmill sails, that he forgot to look where he was going. All the flour was ruined and the miller was upset.
  • Miller: If I can't sell my flour I'll have to shut down the windmill.
  • Toby: I'm sorry.
  • Michael Brandon: Sighed Toby. Harvey arrived to put the trucks back onto the tracks. Toby was sad.
  • Toby: What will the miller do if the mill shuts down?
  • Toby's Driver: It's a shame.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Toby's Driver: But we must hurry, Toby, there's a storm on the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby couldn't sleep that night. It wasn't the thunder and lightning that kept them awake. He was still worrying about the miller. That stormy night, the old windmill was struck by lightning. The next morning, Toby chuffed carefully along his branch line. The storm had torn trees from the ground and the farm buildings have been damaged. Then, Toby saw the most shocking sight of all.
  • Toby: The windmill is broken!
  • Michael Brandon: He cried.
  • Miller: This means the end of my business.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the miller sadly.
  • Miller: I can't afford the timbers to make the repairs.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby really wanted to help.
  • Toby: There must be a way.
  • Michael Brandon: Suddenly, his driver saw a fallen tree ahead. Harvey and Terence were clearing the track. Sir Topham Hatt was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This storm has caused confusion and delay. Remove this tree immediately!
  • Michael Brandon: But Toby had an idea.
  • Toby: Please sir. The windmill has been broken. The wood from this tree can mend it and make it work again.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: A splendid idea.
  • Michael Brandon: Agreed Sir Topham Hatt. Toby proudly took the tree to the miller. The miller was delighted.
  • Miller: Now we can build our windmill back up again. It would be good as new.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby watched as the work began. It took a long time, but as last the windmill was completed. Sir Topham Hatt was most impressed. The miller was grateful.
  • Miller: Thank you, Toby, your idea saved my windmill.
  • Michael Brandon: Toby beamed happily. Now the windmill produces more flour than ever before and Toby makes twice as many deliveries to the market. He never tires of watching the sails go around and he is very proud that the miller now calls it: Toby's Windmill.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Toby)
  • Children: (singing) North of the island, there lives a dear old train, a little tram engine, Toby is his name. He's quaint and old fashioned, but careful and wise. His coach is Henrietta and she's seen better days. His mind keeps returning to the good old days. When they were busy working everyday. But nobody rides with them nowadays. They can't understand why things have changed. Their line is closing down today, forever. Toby, oh Toby. Show them what you can do. The world's much nicer whenever we see you. Toby, dear Toby. There's so much to learn from you. Oldies but goldies, we still care about you. Oldies but goldies, we still care for you.

Act 2

  • (We open Act 2 with 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 needs 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 Jem 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 Little Engines)
  • 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. 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 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. 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!

Act 3

  • (We open Act 3 with Something Fishy)
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur loves working on the Island of Sodor. He is new to the railway and is learning his way around. One morning, he discovered the fishing village. The sun made the water sparkle and the seagulls cawed across the harbour. This was Arthur's favorite place. That evening Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: There's going to be a new line to the fishing village. I had to decide which engine shall run it.
  • Michael Brandon: He paused impressively. Thomas and Percy looked away. They had enough work to do. Arthur hoped he would be chosen.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Thomas, you will work on the new line.
  • Thomas: Yes, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas. But he really didn't like the smell of fish. Arthur was disappointment. Sir Topham Hatt sent him to haul coal to the steelworks. That evening, Thomas was at the washdown when Arthur puffed in.
  • Arthur: Do I smell a fishy engine?
  • Michael Brandon: He teased.
  • Thomas: Yes.
  • Michael Brandon: Huffed Thomas.
  • Thomas: Smelly fish, smelly new line.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur wished he could go to the fishing village instead of the steelworks. He'd be much happier than Thomas. The next morning, Thomas was still grumpy. The fishermen had caught lots of fish.
  • Thomas: Hurry up.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Thomas: I'm a busy engine.
  • Fisherman: And a fussy one too.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the fisherman.
  • Fisherman: Just enjoy the fresh salty smell of the fish.
  • Thomas: Phew!
  • Michael Brandon: Puffed Thomas. Thomas steamed as fast as he could along the line. But there was trouble ahead. Some faulty points sent his freight cars one way and Thomas onto the old pier rail.
  • Thomas: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: The Troublesome Trucks were delighted.
  • Trucks: He's falling in the water! (laughing)
  • Michael Brandon: Luckily, Thomas wasn't hurt and the fish freight cars stayed on the tracks. When Sir Topham Hatt heard the news he checked his time table.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Arthur is the newest engine. I'll send him right away.
  • Michael Brandon: It was a hot day. The ice that was keeping the fish cold started to melt.
  • Thomas: I hope someone comes quickly.
  • Michael Brandon: Moaned Thomas.
  • Thomas: That fish will spoil soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur was surprised to see Thomas in the tidal pool.
  • Arthur: Are you all right, Thomas?
  • Thomas: No. But I'll be much better when you take these fish away.
  • Driver: The breakdown van will be here soon.
  • Michael Brandon: Called Arthur's Driver. Arthur knew he had to hurry. He raced along the line to the docks and arrived there just in time. Later, Arthur went to see Thomas at the fitter's yard.
  • Thomas: Thank you for helping me.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Thomas.
  • Arthur: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Arthur.
  • Arthur: I wish I had the fishing village line all the time.
  • Thomas: But please tell Sir Topham Hatt. Because I don't like fish.
  • Michael Brandon: That evening, Sir Topham Hatt came to the sheds.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I need an engine to go to the fishing village while Thomas is being repaired.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Any Volunteers?
  • Arthur: Me!
  • Michael Brandon: Arthur blurted out.
  • Arthur: And please sir may I run on that line all the time? Thomas doesn't like fish but I do.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Then the line is yours.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt. Arthur was delighted. The next morning he puffed into the fishing village right on time. The smell of fish was everywhere. But he was sure he had the most beautiful line on the Island of Sodor.
  • (Another passing by sequence occurs and we begin Down By The Docks)
  • Children: (singing) Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Sailors! Who have crossed the seven seas, Sailing homeward. Bringing all and sundry. And the trade winds blow their ships back home... Safely to the shore. We are the workers, stoking the boilers Of Sodor's industry... Down by the docks, that's the place to be, Down by the docks, gateway to the sea, Down by the dockside, we are the team, Working together, just like family. Down by the docks, you're never on your own, Down by the docks, it's really home from home, Down by the dockside, down by the dockside. Down by the dockside, is where we want to be. Down by the dockside, down by the dockside Down by the dockside, is where we want to be.
