“It's a bit dark and gloomy around here. Isn't it Reg?"
"Not really, Percy. It's no different from usual."
"Exactly! And this is a special time of year, when the rest of the island
does look different from usual. All twinkly, and lovely, and magical.”
―Percy and Reg

The Perfect Gift is the twentieth (fourteenth in Australia) episode of the eighteenth season.
