[[AC:Toby the Tram Engine]]
* In Dirty Objects, James mocks Toby's shabby paint. Toby has the last laugh in the conversation.
-->"James," he asked, "why are you red?"\\
"I am a splendid engine," answered James loftily, "ready for anything. You never see ''my'' paint dirty."\\
"Oh!" said Toby innocently, "that's why you once needed [[NeverLiveItDown bootlaces]]; to be ready, I suppose?"\\
James went redder than ever and snorted off.
[[AC:Duck and the Diesel Engine]]
* The Barber telling off Duck for scaring his customer rather then crashing into the Barber Shop, then covering his face in shaving foam.
** He only got ''that'' far because Duck interrupted him tending to a customer by apologising. The customer even tried to look at what had happened, only for the barber to quietly turn his head back to [[UnusuallyUninterestingSight continue his work as Duck sat halfway through the debris that was his shop.]]
-->'''Barber:''' It's only an engine.
[[AC:Stepney the Bluebell Engine]]
* From the beginning of "Bluebells of England", Percy is singing about the bluebells, which Douglas finds it annoying.
-->'''Douglas''': If ye must sing, Percy, can't ye sing in tune?!
[[AC:Small Railway Engines]]
* Mike being teased by Bert and Rex in response to comments about Duck's whistle, which is jammed by an egg.
-->'''Mike:''' If engines can't whistle properly they shouldn't try.\\
'''Bert:'''T hen why do you?\\
'''Mike:''' Why do I what?\\
'''Bert:''' Try to whistle of course.\\
'''Mike:''' Shut up! You're jealous. Mine (his whistle) is better than yours anyway.\\
'''Rex:''' Listen Mike. If I had a whistle like yours you know what I'd do?\\
'''Rex:''' I'd lose it.
* From "Tenders for Henry", we have this dialogue where Henry, James, and Duck assume some reasons why Gordon feels unhappy, much to his annoyance:
-->'''Gordon:''' I'm not happy.\\
'''James:''' Your firebox is out of order. No wonder after all that coal you had yesterday.\\
'''Gordon:''' Hard work brings good appetite! You wouldn't understand!\\
'''Duck:''' I know! It's boiler ache. I warned you about that standpipe on the other railway, but you drank gallons.\\
'''Gordon:''' It's not boiler ache, it's--\\
'''Henry:''' Of course it is. That water's bad. It furs up your tubes. Your boiler must be full of sludge. Have a good washout, then you'll feel a different engine.\\
'''Gordon:''' Don't be vulgar!
