- "Why should a splendid engine like me take messy coal trucks instead of coaches? Percy or Oliver should do it, they're not as important as I am!"
"James, why don't you think about something or someone else for a change? You'll be surprised how much better you'll feel if you do."
"Pah! Being important is the only thing for me to think about!"
- ―James and Thomas
Make Someone Happy is the twenty-second episode of the fifth season.
After James boasts about himself, Thomas tells him to think of other people. When James is shunting trucks, he sees Mrs. Kyndley, who discovered that her sister cannot visit her. Sir Topham Hatt soon hears the news and James is happy when Harold gives her a ride. James later takes Mrs. Kyndley on a mystery tour and Mrs. Kyndley is delighted when she gets to open the seaside fair. James then agrees with Thomas that making someone happy does cheer him up.
