    • (cut from the final film) PT Boomer: Now I'll get you, Burnett Stone, and that engine, too! Burnett Stone: No, you won't, Boomer, because the magic you refuse to believe in will get the better of you!

    • Junior: Thomas! Now, don't look so surprised, I haven't seen you since- Thomas: -You stuffed party poppers down my funnel! Junior: Hey we had a laugh. Thomas: You did.

    • Diesel 10: I like my lunch steamed!

    • Diesel 10: You'll always need help! Because steam engines are cowardly, cranky, worn out hunks of metal, who couldn't hurt a fly! James: No we're not! Diesel 10: Yes you are! James: Aren't! Diesel 10: Are!

    • Diesel 10: You can run, but you can't hide! Right, Pinchy? *Laughs evilly* Pinchy's hungry! (Diesel 10 extends Pinchy towards Thomas.) Thomas: Ooh, get back!

    Trivia (14)

    • Goof: In one head-on shot of Diesel 10, a pencil can be seen on the right side of the screen next to the tracks.

    • When Thomas, Henry, Gordon, James and Toby talk about Diesel 10, look closely behind Gordon's tender when there are close-ups of him, and you'll see that there are no buffers behind it, and the tracks just lead into the shrubbery behind.

    • You notice when Lily meets Junior for the second time there is a pile of Gold Dust on the counter where Mr. Conductor's house is and Lily asks Junior to save some for her grandpa. But Lily doesn't take all of the Gold Dust but when she and Junior leave there is no more Gold Dust on the counter.

    • When Diesel 10 chases Thomas under the bridge, Thomas has his happy face on when he's not supposed to.

    • During the "Really Useful Engine" song, the captions say "Now he's got a workshop..." instead of "Now he's got a branchline..."
