Season 10

Follow That Flour [10.1]

James: I am to take a truck of flour to make cakes and bread for the children's harvest festival supper.
Thomas: I wish The Fat Controller had given me that job. It would be much more fun than shunting trucks.
James: First, I have to take on water. Please shunt the flour truck for me, Thomas. [leaves]
Thomas: Bossy boiler!

[after Thomas has spilled flour throughout the wharf]
Thomas: James, I know you tried to tell me about the flour and I know I was silly, but now I need your help.

A Smooth Ride [10.2]

Peter Sam: Why have you stopped, Sir Handel?
Sir Handel: I have a problem. It happens when I go up hills. I start to rattle and rock, and then I have to stop. Could you help me up the hill?
Peter Sam: Of course I can!

The Thin Controller: You're a fine engine, Sir Handel. But you're no longer a smooth engine. I'll have to send you back to the stone quarry. That's the place for bumpy engines.
Sir Handel: Please, sir, I can be a smooth engine. I only shudder and shake when I go up hills.
The Thin Controller: I see.
Sir Handel: Please, don't send me back to the stone quarry.

Thomas and the Jet Plane [10.3]

Thomas: Hello. I'm Thomas and I'm a tank engine.
Jeremy: Hello, I'm Jeremy and I'm a jet plane.
Thomas: It must be wonderful being able to fly.
Jeremy: It is. I can go anywhere I want. Flying is the most fun in the world.
Thomas: I like traveling on tracks. I puff past farms and villages, and see all the wonderful sights of Sodor.
Jeremy: Well, from the air, I see the wonderful sights of Sodor all at once!
Thomas: [heading for the airport station] I never want to talk to a jet plane again.

Thomas: Jet planes can go wherever they'd like. I wish I were a jet plane.
Percy: But engines can pull carriages and take children to picnics. Engines are really useful!

Percy and the Funfair (UK) / Percy and the Carnival (US) [10.4]

Percy: Do you need any help?
Toby: No, thank you, Percy.
Edward: We can do it.

The Green Controller [10.5]

Lady Hatt: Sir Topham is sick. He has lost his voice.
Percy: I hope he finds it soon.
Lady Hatt: Sir Topham has given me a list of jobs. Listen very carefully - Gordon is to collect coaches of china from Knapford and take them to Brendam Docks. He must pull the coaches very slowly.
Percy: Slow coaches.
Lady Hatt: James is to shunt trucks in the coal yard. He must be as busy as a bee.
Percy: Busy bee.
Lady Hatt: And Toby is to take visitors from Maithwaite to the Scottish Castle. He must go as fast as Gordon's Express.
Percy: Gordon's Express.
Lady Hatt: You're in charge now, Percy.

Percy: James, you must be a busy bee.
James: Do you mean I have to be painted yellow and black?
Percy: Yes, James!
James: But why?!
Percy: Because I am controller.

Duncan Drops a Clanger [10.6]

Duncan: [about the bell] What a wonderful sound!
Foreman: Remember, the bell is very heavy. The track to the polishers is old and in need of some repair. You must go slowly and carefully.

Duncan: [speeds past] HOORAY!
Sir Handel: Slow down! The track ahead is very wobbly!

Thomas' Tricky Tree [10.7]

Duncan: Are you looking for something, Thomas?
Thomas: I'm looking for the Christmas tree.
Duncan: Don't you know what a Christmas tree looks like? It's tall and green and pointy. Peter Sam, Thomas needs our help! He doesn't know what a Christmas tree looks like!
Thomas: [cuts him off] Of course I do!

Thomas: [after his mishap] I've been a very silly engine. I didn't want to listen to you. I thought I knew better than the little engines. but I don't. I need to find the tree, and there's no time to lose.
Sir Handel: Of course I'll help you! Follow me, Thomas.

Toby's Afternoon Off [10.8]

Cranky: What are you waiting for?
Toby: I'm here to pick up the cargo.
Cranky: The ship's been caught in rough seas. The cargo won't be here until morning.

Henry: Where are you going in such a hurry?
[Toby explains about going to the farm and helping his friends]
Toby: I thought friends helped each other, but they were all too busy to help me.
Henry: That's because they've all been helping me!
Narrator: Toby was surprised.
Henry: I broke down, so Mavis brought me my special coal, Thomas took my passengers, and Salty brought me a new piston rod.
Toby: They were all helping you! Is there anything I can do to help you, Henry?
Henry: But then you won't get to the farm to see the animals.
Toby: It doesn't matter. Helping a friend is much more important. What can I do?
[Henry tells Toby to take his carriages]
Toby: I don't know if I'll be able to move them, but I'm going to try.
[he backs up and is coupled to Henry's carriages, Toby leaves the junction]
Henry: Thank you, Toby! Sorry about your afternoon off!

It's Good to Be Gordon [10.9]

[Henry is feeling ill due to the coal he has been given]
Gordon: Are you feeling alright?
Henry: I didn't get my special coal this morning. My firebox feels funny.

Henry: I'm sorry you didn't set a new record today.
Gordon: And I'm sorry I took your coal.
Thomas: Who holds the old record?
Gordon: I do!

Seeing the Sights [10.10]

Thomas: [to the visitors] Welcome aboard! I will show you all the wonderful sights of Sodor.
[Gordon shows up]
Gordon: I should be showing the sights to the important visitors!
Thomas: Why?
Gordon: Because I could show them around much more quickly than you! Then they would see everything there is to see on Sodor!
Thomas: I can show you all the sights as quickly as you can! Just you see!

[after all the visitors have been left behind earlier]
Thomas: What's happening?
Bertie: No one is getting out, Thomas, because no one is left onboard.
Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
Bertie: You were in so much of a hurry you left them all behind.
Thomas: I must go back and pick everyone up.

Fearless Freddie [10.11]

Sir Handel: Hello, Freddie. I haven't seen you for years.
Freddie: Fearless Freddie is back.
Thomas: I didn't know you two were friends!
Sir Handel: Oh, yes.
[Rheneas and Skarloey show up]
Skarloey: I'm the winner!
Rheneas: No! I am.
Freddie: Who are you?
Rheneas and Skarloey: We're the fastest engines in the hills.
Freddie: I'll show you who's fastest. I'll race you down the mountain.

[after the race]
Freddie: I'm sorry I tricked you. You're much faster engines than me.
Rheneas: But you know all the old tracks. Please tell us about them.

Toby's New Shed [10.12]

Percy: Look what I'm taking to Farmer McColl's farm! It's a new house for his doves.
Thomas: [with the timber] Well, I'm helping build a new roof for Toby's shed.
Percy: That's exciting! Toby must be very happy!
Thomas: He didn't look very happy when I told him.
Percy: Maybe he likes his old roof.
Thomas: Well, I'm going to show Toby his new roof will be the best new roof ever.

[after Toby's shed is repaired]
Thomas: Now you have the smartest shed on Sodor, Toby.
[he sees Toby growing very sad]
Thomas: What's wrong, Toby?
[Toby sighs]
Thomas: It's much better than your old roof, and it hasn't got any holes.
Toby: But I liked my old roof with holes. Little birds flew into the holes to make their nests. My shed was their home too.

Edward Strikes Out [10.13]

Rocky: My name's Rocky.
Edward: I'm Edward.
Rocky: Can I come with you? I could help you with those heavy pipes.
Edward: I don't need your help! New-fangled nonsense!

Harvey: [picking up the pipes] This is going to take me a very long time!
[Thomas and Emily arrive]
Thomas: We have to get through. Why don't you go and get Rocky?
Edward: No, no! Harvey is doing a fine job! We must be patient!
Emily: I don't like being patient! We have a very important job to do!
[Gordon arrives quickly, but collides with the pipes and derails]
Harvey: I can't lift Gordon. He's too heavy.
Thomas: Edward, we need Rocky!
Gordon: New-fangled nonsense!
Narrator: But Edward knew this was a disaster, and he knew that Harvey couldn't lift Gordon. There was only one thing to do.
Edward: [leaves the junction] I'll go and get Rocky.

Topped Off Thomas [10.14]

Thomas: Hello, Spencer. What are you doing on Sodor?
Spencer: I am to pick up Sir Topham, Lady Hatt, and the Duke and Duchess of Boxford. They are waiting at Kellsthorpe station. I am to take them to a very important tea at the Scottish castle.
Thomas: [disappointedly] Why can't I take them in Annie and Clarabel?
Spencer: Because you are a small engine and small engines get small jobs! I am a big engine, and big engines get big jobs!
Thomas: I can go faster than the wind!
Spencer: Nonsense!
Thomas: [growing very cross] I'll race you to Kellsthorpe station! Then we'll see!

Thomas: Sometimes going slowly is as good as going fast!

Which Way Now? [10.15]

Rusty: [honking impatiently] It's time to go, it's time to go!
Workmen: We haven't finished our jobs.

Thomas and the Shooting Star [10.16]

Gordon: I'm going to wish to be grander!
James: I'm going to wish to be redder!
Percy: I'm going to wish to pull the mail forever and ever!
Thomas: Never to have to work with Diesel again, or never wearing my snowplough, or never having to pull smelly fish!

Percy: I wished you would come home safely!
Thomas: Thank you, Percy! Both of our wishes came true!

Big Strong Henry [10.17]

The Fat Controller: Farmer McColl needs lots of bricks, iron, and concrete. I need a strong engine to fetch them.
Henry: I can do it, sir!
Gordon: You're not as strong as I am. I'll do the jobs, sir.
The Fat Controller: Gordon, you can do it. Henry, you can deliver the empty trucks.
Henry: Empty trucks?
Thomas: Never mind, Henry. We know you're big and strong.
Percy: You can pull 10 trucks of sand, couldn't you?
Henry: Yes, I could.
Emily: You could pull 20 trucks of coal.
Henry: I suppose so.
Thomas: You could pull 50 trucks of iron and steel because you're "Big Strong Henry".
Gordon: "Big strong Henry"?! What nonsense!
Thomas: You'll see.
Gordon: Pah!

Percy: Look, Henry! If Gordon sees you pulling 5 heavy trucks, he'll see just how strong you are!
[Henry backs up to the trucks; Gordon soon arrives]
Gordon: Put those trucks back! Those are for Farmer McColl! I'm collecting them later!
Percy: He's not as strong as you are!

Thomas: Please, sir, I could take the sticky toffee to the party.

Thomas: [while still at the airport] Oh no, I've been daydreaming! And now I'm late.

Wharf and Peace [10.19]

James: [after Skarloey jumps] Fancy jumping at a silly old crane! Scaredy little engine!

Thomas: James was only teasing.
Trucks: Scaredy engine! Scaredy engine! Clickety-clack! Don't come back!
Skarloey: Maybe I am a scaredy little engine.

Trucks: OOH!

The Fat Controller: Diesel, where are Gordon's special coaches?!
Diesel: They're in a siding, sir.
The Fat Controller: Take Emily there at once!
Diesel: Yes, sir.

Emily: [sees Diesel sputtering] What's wrong with your engine?
Diesel: My engine's old. All that rushing 'round has worn it out.
Emily: Then you shouldn't have taken the coaches.
Diesel: And you should have listened to me!
Emily: Why should I listen to smelly old Diesel?!
Diesel: Because Gordon's not the only one to set a record. I've set one too.

Thomas: It's not fair!

Bertie: Please, Thomas, can you take the children to the football match for me?
Thomas: I'm sorry, Bertie, but I have to help James.

Thomas: High winds don't bother me...
Rosie: ...or me. I'll come as your back engine.

Narrator: Rosie was very happy.
Rosie: Of course I will!

Duncan's Bluff [10.24]

Duncan: You were a long time getting here.
James: You're lucky I came at all. I've got an important job to do later. I'm taking some children to a concert.
Duncan: Is doing 2 jobs in one day too hard for you?
James: Pah! I can do more jobs in one day than you can! I'm really useful!
Duncan: How about a week on petition? I bet I could take coal to the villagers faster than you can deliver it.
James: Alright! You're on!

The Thin Controller: James is stuck. He has run out of coal. Now he won't be able to take the children to the concert.
Duncan: I have to tell you about the hidden coal.
The Thin Controller: You have caused delay and confusion, but you have told the truth, and a really useful engine always tells the truth.

Missing Trucks (UK) / Missing Cars (US) [10.25]

Salty: The admiral is always looking for the lost pirate treasure of Sodor.
James: Pirates?!
Emily: Treasure?!

Thomas: Eagle? Clouds? Skull and crossbones? I'm sure I could solve those clues.

Admiral: I am very proud to declare the new maritime museum open!
[the big engines start whistling cheerfully along with the crowd cheering]
Thomas: [sees the last clue] That's it! The pirate treasure's right here.
Emily: Don't be silly!
James: Everyone knows it's just a silly old story!
Thomas: I followed all the clues.
Admiral: Then you have found the skull and crossbones. Someone get me a shovel.

James: I will look wonderful on the poster!
The Fat Controller: The engine on the Sodor Railway poster will be... Edward!
[Edward whistles excitedly; the photographer prepares his camera but James obstructs Edward]
The Fat Controller: James, leave the shed now!

The Fat Controller: James, your racing around has caused confusion and delay.
James: Yes sir, sorry sir.

Children: It's Edward, and look at James! He's pushing him! Isn't James a grand engine for being so kind?
Edward: Even though you weren't the engine on the poster, you are still really useful.

Thomas and Skarloey's Big Day Out [10.28]
