Thomas and the Tuba

Percy's New Whistle
- Bert: [after Percy whistles to 'Arry and Bert] Call that a whistle? Just listen to this! [blasts his horn]
- 'Arry and Bert: Diesels can do anything better than steamies!
- Percy: My whistle is just as good as your silly old horns!
- The Fat Controller: [after Percy used his whistle properly] Well done, Percy! You blew your whistle at the right time, and saved Thomas from an accident. You are a really useful engine, and a safe one.
Thomas to the Rescue
- Thomas: [after Diesel shunts him under the hopper] Cinders and ashes!
- Diesel: What's that horrible smell? Oh, it's just a stinky old steam engine.
- Thomas: How rude!
- Diesel: No wonder the Fat Controller is thinking of scrapping steamies.
- Thomas: I don't believe you.
- Salty: Ahoy there, me hearties! Fresh diesel from the Mainland!
- [Diesel and Mavis get refueled and Diesel starts to rev his engine]
- Diesel: Haha! This new fuel makes my axles tingle.

- Mavis: [about the new fuel] Oh, my!

Edward the Great

- Thomas, Percy, Gordon and James: Please, sir, may I go?
- The Fat Controller: You all have other work to do. Edward will take the furniture.
- Gordon: Fancy sending a back engine to do an express engine's job!
- James: He'll lose the race and let the old railway down!
- Thomas: Spencer has a bigger boiler, but that just means more hot air.

Thomas Gets It Right

- Thomas: Cinders and ashes! I'm sorry. I just wanted to be really useful.
- The Fat Controller: You have all worked hard and been really useful engines.
- Thomas: I've only made one journey, sir. And I've broken Farmer McColl's eggs.

As Good as Gordon
- Emily: It doesn't matter if you are late.
- James: You must wait your turn!
- Emily: Express trains don't wait.
- The Fat Controller: [upon hearing Emily's mischief] You should have waited, and now you have caused confusion and delay! You left the brake coach, stranded Bertie's passengers, and bumped your carriages. You must learn to be more patient.

- Elizabeth: Not if you ask like that!
- Emily: I've got an urgent delivery!
- [Elizabeth returns to try clearing the track, and Emily crossly blows her whistle again, Thomas arrives]
- Thomas: Hello.
- Emily: She won't do a thing I tell her.
- Thomas: That's because you're a "big bossy boiler". You should try asking nicely for a change.
- Emily: [takes a deep breath] I'm sorry I was rude, but can you help me get this timber to Farmer McColl's? Please? It's to help the baby calves.
- Elizabeth: Why certainly! I'll get your track cleared in no time!
- [she pushes the water tower very hard and soon clears the tracks]
- Emily: Thank you!
- Farmer McColl: Thank you, Emily. The calves will be nice and warm now.
- Emily: [after hearing moaning and groaning] What was that? You said there was no such thing as ghosts.
- Thomas: "Silly make-believe" you said.
- [Arry and Bert rattle the flatbed trucks]
- Thomas: Cinders and ashes!
- Emily: Help! It's the ghost! Let's get away from here!
- [after Arry and Bert exhibit their antics to Thomas and Emily]
- The Fat Controller: What is all this fuss and bother?! It has caused confusion and delay!
- Thomas: But sir, the flatbeds were rattling.
- Emily: And we heard moaning...
- Thomas: ...And groaning!
- The Fat Controller: [to 'Arry and Bert] Do you know anything about this?

James Goes Too Far
- James: [running out of water] I don't feel well.
- Driver: Your water tanks have run dry.
- [Edward arrives]
- James: Please push me to the water tank.
- Edward: I'm sorry. You wouldn't take my slate trucks to the quarry and now I'm running late with my passenger train.
- Salty: Why didn't you fill water this morning, matey? [James explains his troubles] I've heard you were too busy to help Edward too!
- James: I was in a hurry! My job is the most important!
- Salty: No job is more important than helping another engine.
