     Season 1 
  • "Thomas and Gordon":
    • Thomas' introduction, especially since he talks back at the narrator for calling him a "cheeky little sod".
    • The description of Knapford Station, likening it to a youth club. In that it's busy, filled with yobs and smelling of wee.
  • "Edward and Gordon":
    • Edward tries to question the Tidmouth Shed hierarchy and gets immediately demoted to below Thomas.
  • "The Sad Story of Henry":
    • James comes across Henry, stuck in the tunnel, and offers to help, on one condition: Henry gets his name right.
    Henry: Uh...uh...oh...I know, is it...uh...Jerome?
    • Henry interrupting the narrator at the end, bemoaning that "THIS IS A TERRIBLE ENDING!"

    • Hatt attacking David Mitton.
    • Hatt's half-drunken shout of "SENNNNNNNNNNNND FOR ANOTHER ONE!" after Gordon breaks down.

    • Thomas' Delayed Reaction when he realises he's left his train behind.

    • After he nearly crashes, Thomas sees a foreboding shadow:
    Thomas: DEATH?!

     Season 2

    Thomas: He's a what engine? IS HE RELATED TO TERRENCE?! BECAUSE I CAN'T DEAL WITH ANOTHER GRINNING DEMON FROM HELL!
  • "Duck Takes Charge":
    • Gordon and Percy being utterly beffudled on what the hell a Rabbish is. Percy thinks it's a kind of red vegetable.

    Duck: There are two ways of doing things; the Great Western way, or the wrong way. I'm Great Western and...
    The Others:Don't we bloody well know it!?
    • Gordon apparently hid Henry's tender in the same scene, resulting in him being left behind until a fitter took pity on him.
  • "Daisy":
    • Percy falling for Daisy the moment he sees her... then gives up a couple hours later once he realises how horrible she is.
    • Daisy's terrible French-cum-Essex accent dying after she sees the state of the carriage shed.
  • "Percy's Predicament":
    • Percy's epic morphine-fueled rant at the Fat Controller after his accident.

YOU THINK I LIKE BEING STUCK ON A STACK OF TRUCKS, YOU FAT FUCK SIR?! YOU THINK THAT I ENJOY THIS?!

  • "Bulldog"
    • Duke teaching Falcon about mountains, which involved telling him that mountains existed, what the tallest mountain in the world is, what the shortest was (a molehill beside the sheds), that engines don't usually climb mountains unless they were from Shout Out/Culdee Fell and that pancakes taste really good with syrup.
