Dory: Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Hey. What's happening?
Marlin: Something's wrong. Let's get back to the house to play some Mar...
Thomas: Ashima? What's the matter?
Ashima: (Sighs) Thomas... There's something I've neglected to tell you.
Thomas: What's that? Is it sad?
Nemo: Did you hear that?
Ashima: It's a story of how I became an engine.
Thomas: What? That doesn't sound sad.
Ashima: It... it... it... (Holds breath)
Ashima: (Sighs) It does sound sad, Thomas.
Thomas: Oh. Well, tell me about it, then.
Ashima: Okay. When I was young, I used to be an expert at everything. But, one of my friends was jealous of me. Especially swimming. But, one day...
Thomas: What? Go on.
Dory: Oh, boy. I'm intrigued.
Ashima: ...one of my friends turned evil.
(Thomas, Dory, Marlin and Nemo gasp)
Thomas: What happened, Ashima?
Ashima: (Sighs) My "used to be friend" was threatening me with a spell. He just pointed his wand at me and then I turned into a Tank Engine. I looked awful. I was a horrible colour. But when the Great Railway show came around, I was painted a better colour.
Thomas: And that was pink, with cool designs.
Ashima: (Sighs) Exactly. It's just that... I... I...
(Ashima cries and embraces Thomas, then lets go)
Dory: Boy. That story was a bit scary.
Marlin: Scary? Scary? That's more terrifying than Dory's whale talk.
Nemo: And when you were inside that whale.
Thomas: Ashima, it's okay. No one's gonna hurt you.
(Thomas strokes one of Ashima's ponytails)
Thomas: And I'll still love you more matter what. Even in a river.
Ashima: (Chuckles) Thanks, Thomas.
