** The beginning is comedy gold. To start off, Thomas remarks that it's such a wonderful day he wants to burst into song--cue [[IncomingHam James literally sliding into frame by switching onto Thomas' track, forcing him to stop.]] [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking And beginning the first musical number while he's at it.]]
*** The lyrics show off James in all his [[ItsAllAboutMe egotistical glory]].
--->'''James:''' Somebody has to be the favorite,\\
The one that everybody wants to see!\\
Somebody has to be better than the rest,\\
Somebody has to be so good that they're the best!\\
Somebody has to be the favorite,\\
Somebody has to be me!
*** Thomas indignantly enters the station after James and needles him for claiming he's everyone's favorite when he's not, and for singing a song when Thomas was about to. James promptly calls for the entire station to be quiet so they can hear Thomas sing, leaving the woefully unprepared tank engine at a loss for words. And when Thomas finally gets ready to sing? James promptly blows his whistle and continues his song!
*** When an even more indignant Thomas calls out James again, James points out he gets all the best jobs, pointing out Thomas will be collecting pigs next, while he will be "transporting beautiful music". In the very next scene, Thomas is doing just that...and can only stare speechlessly when James passes by with a coach transporting a musical ensemble. And to add insult to injury, the ensemble is playing the very song James was playing!

Added DiffLines:

*''Journey Beyond Sodor'':
**Beresford's introduction and musical number, "Who's Thomas?".
***At the beginning of the scene, Beresford blocks Thomas' line for seemingly no apparent reason with a ship. After Thomas' first self-introduction, Beresford lifts up the ship--only to drop it right in front of Thomas again within seconds. Naturally, Thomas is not amused.
***This line, coupled with the camera cutting to various shots of Beresford's face from different angles:
--->'''Beresford:''' Thomas? Who's Thomas? I've never heard of Thomas! Nor me! I know! You're me! That's true! I'm talking to myself! ''(his eyes are crossed on the last one)''
***Beresford attempts to end a verse on a high note, only to [[VocalRangeExceeded get horrendous voice cracks]] that leaves Thomas cringing and the trucks bewildered.
***The trucks repeatedly interrupt the song to gleefully remind the audience Thomas is lost. The third time, it becomes utterly ridiculous as they run through a bunch of crossing tracks, barely managing to not hit each other, and then ''spin around in place''. All while singing, of course.
***Thomas' method of getting away from Beresford, along with the last verse of the song:
--->'''Thomas:''' That's it!\\
''I'm Thomas, I'm Thomas!''\\
''But you've never heard of Thomas!''\\
'''Beresford:''' No, I've never heard of Thomas!\\
'''Thomas:''' ''But that's my name, it's true!''\\
''(Thomas starts backing up)''

--->'''Thomas:''' ''I'm Thomas! I'm Thomas!''\\
'''Beresford:''' Yes?\\
'''Thomas:''' ''And if you've never heard of me,''\\
''Then when I said I was Thomas,''\\
[[ExactWords ''I was telling you something new.'']]\\
'''Beresford:''' Something new?!\\
''(Thomas starts traveling down the line directly below Beresford, which is unblocked.)''\\
'''Thomas:''' And having told you that, I think we're through!
***Beresford tries to stop Thomas, but only ends up hitting himself in the face with his own hook.

-->'''Narrator''': When Gordon was repaired again, he took The Fat Controller to the new station for its '''second''' official opening.
* Most of ''Lady Hatt's Birthday Party''. The Fat Controller's attempts to get the party. The whole journey was downright hilarious.

* ''Cranky Bugs'' Cranky gets knocked over due to a ship crashing into the engine shed and the roof pushing Cranky down. The engines are crying for help, but Cranky rather pathetically says he can't. Despite the seriousness of the situation, it was poetic to see Cranky being brought down a peg due to him being a Jerkass to Thomas and Percy.

* A lot of "A Better View For Gordon". The conversation between Gordon, James, and Percy at the beginning:
---> '''James''': Why are you complaining all the time?
---> '''Gordon''': [[{{Narcissist}}Because I am a big blue engine and I know everything. I shall complain whenever I want! You're just a small red engine with ideas above your station.]]
---> '''Percy''': I can't see any.
---> '''Gordon''': Any what?
---> '''Percy''': [[LiteralMinded Ideas above the station. The sky is empty.]]
---> '''James''': Like your smokebox, Percy!
** After Gordon crashes through the station, The Fat Controller comes to see him on a lift, with his driver and fireman, bruised and bandaged.
---> '''TFC''': [[DeadpanSnarker Well Gordon, I knew you wanted a panoramic view, but this is not the way to achieve it.]]
** After that:
-->'''Narrator''': When Gordon was repaired again, he took The Fat Controller to the new station for its '''second''' official opening.



* Many moments with the trucks, but specifically in the episode "James and the trouble with trees".
