- "What's got into those Scottish scatterbrains?"
- ―Thomas referring to the Scottish twins
Fish and Chips is a magazine story.
The Fat Controller is sad because the fish and chip shop closed early due to rough seas causing a fish shortage. The next day is Friday and Sir Topham always has a fish and chip supper. On Friday, Thomas sees that the fishing trawlers have gone because the sea is calmer. Donald and Douglas rush past with the potatoes and fish and everyone agrees that they have saved the day.
