The Diary is the twentieth episode of the first season of The Railroad Girl.
Sir Handel finds Doki's diary and reads it.
One day, Sir Handel was coming out of Totally 60's with a bag of chocolate chip cookies and on his way home when he saw a book on the ground.
"Hey," said Sir Handel, "someone left their book here."
Sir Handel picked up the book and read the title, which was "The Diary Of Doki Spott".
"Since when did Doki get a diary," asked Sir Handel, "oh, well, guess it wouldn't hurt to see what he's got in it."
Sir Handel went to the park, opened the book, and read it while eating his cookies. The book's contents made him laugh.
"Oh man," said Sir Handel, "that is just too funny!"
Just then, Rheneas came over.
"Hey, Sir Handel," said Rheneas, "whatcha up to?"
"Oh, hey, Rheneas," said Sir Handel, "I'm just reading Doki's diary. It's hilarious."
Rheneas was shocked.
"You're reading Doki's diary," asked Rheneas.
"Yeah," said Sir Handel, "I just said that a few seconds ago."
Rheneas scowled at Sir Handel.
"Why would you do a thing like that," asked Rheneas, "that's horrible!"
But Rheneas' demeanor soon changed.
"Tell me more," said Rheneas.
"Whenever I go to sleep at night," Sir Handel read, "I always suck my thumb, and sometimes wet the bed!"
Sir Handel and Rheneas then began laughing, which soon caught the attention of Thomas, Ryan, Stanley, Sir Handel, Peter Sam, Rusty, and Duncan.
"Whoa," said Sir Handel, "you guys were listening, too?"
"Yep," said Thomas, "we sure were."
"It was very hilarious," said Rusty.
"I like diaries," said Ryan.
"Yeah, man," said Stanley, "tell us more!"
"Also," read Sir Handel, "I named my bike "Fifi"."
The engines laughed, then Sir Handel saw Doki playing with a toy R/C plane he got for his birthday.
"Oh, Doki," said Sir Handel, "can you come here, please?"
Doki heard Sir Handel and approached the group.
"What is it, Sir Handel," asked Doki.
"Do you like to ride around Winter City on good ol' Fifi," asked Sir Handel.
The engines laughed.
"Uh, guys," said Doki, "I'll be right back!"
Doki then ran to a nearby bike rack, where his bicycle was chained up.
"Fifi," asked Doki, "how could've Sir Handel learned your name? Have you been talking?"
"Here's another thing," said Sir Handel, "whenever Doki sees polka dots, he has this uncontrollable urge to cluck like a chicken!"
The engines laughed again.
"Oh, Doki," said Sir Handel, "can you come here again?"
"Uh, what do you want now," asked Doki.
"Check out Rusty's new polka dotted cap," said Duncan, "doesn't he look great in it?"
When Doki saw the cap, his eyes shot wide open.
"Polka dots," gasped Doki.
Doki then literally started clucking like a chicken, which caused the engines to laugh for a third time.
"Oh, man," said Doki, "I've gotta go to the bathroom!"
Doki then rushed off to the building where the bathrooms were.
"And here's one more thing," said Sir Handel, "whenever Doki hears "The Monkey Dance" by The Wiggles, he tends to put on a monkey suit and dance to it!"
The engines laughed for a fourth time.
"Here," said Sir Handel, "watch this!"
Sir Handel then played the song on a boombox, and sure enough, when Doki heard it, he put on a monkey suit and danced to it, causing the engines to laugh for a fifth time. However, Doki spotted the diary and gasped.
"My diary," said Doki in a choked-up voice, "Sir Handel, how could you?"
Doki then ran away crying, which left the engines shocked.
"Wait," said Ryan, "I didn't know it was gonna make him cry."
"Yeah," said Thomas, "uncool, dude! Come on, let's get outta here."
With that, the other engines left, leaving Sir Handel by himself. Sir Handel blew a raspberry.
"He'll get over it," said Sir Handel.
Later, Sir Handel was on his way to the Steam Works, as he was due for a new coat of paint that day. He arrived to find Victor and Kevin waiting.
"Hey, Vic," said Sir Handel.
"Hello, Sir Handel," said Victor, "you're right on time."
"Yeah," said Kevin.
"Come inside, Sir Handel," said Victor, "you can relax while we paint you."
With that, Sir Handel went into the Steam Works and fell asleep while workmen painted him. A while later, they were finished.
"All done, Sir Handel," said Victor.
Sir Handel woke up and yawned.
"That was a good nap," said Sir Handel.
"I heard you were reading Doki's diary today," said Victor.
"Yeah," said Sir Handel, "it was funny."
"And because of that," said Victor, "this is what we did. Show 'im, boys!"
Two workmen carried a big mirror over, and Sir Handel saw that, much to his horror, he was painted with black and white stripes, which caused him to literally scream like a little girl.
"What did you do to me," asked Sir Handel.
"When we first heard you read Doki's diary," said Victor, "we painted you to look like a zebra to pay you back for it."
"And it was my idea," said Thomas.
Thomas, Stanley, Ryan, Rheneas, Peter Sam, Rusty, Duncan, Doki, Victor, Kevin, and the workmen all laughed at Sir Handel. Sir Handel was outraged and his face turned red.
"That's it," said Sir Handel, "you're dead!"
Sir Handel charged toward Thomas, but Duncan quickly bonked him on the smoke-box with a baseball bat.
"Ow," Sir Handel howled, "What was that for?!"
"Take that, Diary Reader," said Duncan.
The engines all laughed, except for Sir Handel.
"Okay," said Sir Handel, "why is it always when I'm having fun, it's wrong? I'm sorry for reading your diary, Doki! Can you forgive me?!"
"Not yet, Sir Handel," said Doki, "I'm still mad at you."
"Plus," said Ryan, "we made a call."
At that moment, Ernie Devlin, the controller for the Winter City Railway, showed up.
"Oh, fudge," said Sir Handel.
"Ryan told me everything," said Ernie, "and I'm very disappointed in you. Because of your actions, you won't be leaving the Narrow Gauge Railway for two weeks."
"This can't be happening," said Sir Handel.
"Oh, but it is," said Ernie.
"Nooooooooooooooooo," Sir Handel cried.
