The troublesome trucks continue singing at a sulking Diesel. Duck was horrified of the trucks' behavior and strongly ordered them to stop. He then apologized to Diesel for their rudeness. However, Diesel wasn't interested in Duck's apology and blames him for making the trucks laugh at him. Henry, Gordon, and James tell him that Duck would never do such a thing it, and, even though the engines will have their disagreements, they would never tell any jokes about them to the trucks; it would be "Disgraceful, Disgusting, and Despicable". Diesel wasn't convinced, and his dislike for Duck grew to the point that he wanted him to be sent away. Inspired by the engines' words about the trucks, Diesel decides to pay back Duck by telling lies about him to the trucks.

The next day, he tells the trucks that he was quite amused of their teasing towards him, and then tells them the jokes he made about the other engines and claim that he heard them from Duck. He then warns them not to tell the others he said it. The trucks laugh uncontrollably and plan on paying Duck out for getting them to behave. As Gordon, Henry, and James pass by, the trucks laugh rudely at them, calling them names in which they claim Duck had made them.

At the sheds, Gordon, Henry, and James were outraged of what the trucks told them. They had an indignation meeting and agreed to pay Duck out.

Later Duck was tired after a hard day's work no thanks to the trucks. He wanted to rest in the shed, but the three engines blocked his way and furiously blow steam at him. They tell him that after hearing what the trucks said, they no longer respect him and respect Diesel at this point. Duck denies this and there was a huge argument.

The Fat Controller came to stop the engines' arguments and he is told by the engines' accusations of Duck. The Fat Controller gives Duck to explain, but Duck claims that he only thought of those jokes.

Diesel lurks up and is asked by the Fat Controller did he heard of what Duck said. Lying his way out of the situation, Diesel feigns his shock of Duck's behavior, and then claims to have not known anything about the name calling. The Fat Controller then orders Duck to go work with Edward at Wellsworth while he gets to the bottom of this. Realizing that the Fat Controller is seemingly against him, Duck sadly does so while Diesel smirks triumphantly.
