- "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.
The whole island is celebrating Christmas and there are decorations everywhere. But it does not look very festive at the scrap yard. Percy starts to worry that Reg is missing out and he tries to find something to give Reg to cheer him up. But Reg only seems happy about scrap. Percy discovers that Reg is celebrating Christmas in his own way and has been making decorations from the scrap.
