(Thomas is humming along the mainline when-)
Thomas: (Gasps) Ashima! What in the world are you doing with those empty trucks?
Ashima: I'm just doing something with them. We can do a shunting challenge with them.
Thomas: Ashey, I don't think a shunting challenge can work. I mean, like... where are we going to place them?
Ashima: In Knapford Yard, of course.
(Thomas is awed by how many trucks Ashima is shunting)
Thomas: Um... you'd better just put them in Vicarstown.
Ashima: Oh. Right. Why did I not think of that?
Thomas: (Laughs) Ashima. You make me laugh sometimes.
Ashima: (Chuckles) Let's see if I can do it with my eyes closed.
Thomas: Ashey. Ashey. Ashey. I don't think that it'll work... like that. (Gasps)
(Gordon's machine hovers over Ashima)
Ashima: What? Do you still want me to keep my eyes closed, Tommy?
Thomas: You'd better open them, Ashey! Because something is hovering over you!
(She opens her eyes)
Ashima: (Gasps) AHHHH! THOMAS! HELP! HELP!
Thomas: Hold on, Ashima! I'm coming!
(A net shoots out)
Ashima: (Panics) Thomas! Thomas! Save me! THOMAS!
(A bomb drops into one of the trucks)
Thomas: Gahh! I'm free. (Gasps; he puffs backwards quickly)
Thomas: (Coughs; Gasps in horror) ASHIMA!!! (Pants) ASHEY! ASHEY! (He chuffs away fast)
(The scene cuts to inside Gordon's machine)
Ashima: (Pants; Whimpers)
(Tears fall down Ashima's face in fear)
(The machine zooms away out of view)
Thomas: (Pants) No. It can't be. She can't be gone. No. No! NO! (Whistles) Ashima! (Whistles) Ashima! (Whistles) ASHIMA! PLEASE COME BACK! No.
(He switches points)
Thomas: Watch out!
Nia: Thomas, watch out!
Thomas: Ahh! (He switches tracks) Sorry, Nia. Whaa! (He switches tracks) Coming through, Stanley! Yikes! (He switches tracks) Watch it, Daisy!
Hayley: WATCH OUT!
Thomas: Ahh! (He tries to brake, but he shunts Hayley by accident)
Hayley: What the heck, Mr. Blue?
Thomas: Sorry. (Pants; Starts to cry)
Hayley: What's the matter?
Thomas: My love interest was taken away from me.
Hayley: Uh... your what now?
Thomas: (Whimpers) M... m... my love interest n... n... named A... A... Ashim...m...m...ma.
Hayley: (Gasps) That's terrible, Mr. Blue. Hey, I can help you, you know.
Thomas: (Gasps) Thank you! That would be awesome!
Hayley: No problem. My name is Hayley, by the way.
(Thomas chuffs away fast)
Hayley: Hello? Mr. Blue?
Thomas: I'm coming to save you, Ashima! With a little help from a new friend!
