Khalid gets his present
Episode 161: Khalid's birthday

Happy Birthday Khalid! Are you ready to blow out your candles?

Helen: Don't forget to make a wish.
Khalid: I wish that …
Tim No! Don't say it out loud. It won't come true then.
Khalid Oh, OK.
All: One, two, three … Hey, well done, congratulations!
Tim: Here's a card from us all.
Helen: And here's a present, from me.
Khalid: Thanks you guys. Really you shouldn't have. Oh, a jumper. That's lovely Helen, thanks.
Tim: I think I recognise that top, Helen! Isn't that the jumper your mum gave you for Christmas?
Helen: I couldn't possibly comment.
Tim: What an excellent idea, giving your cast-offs as presents.
Helen: Well that's not what I'd call it. I believe the word you're searching for is "re-gift".
Tim: Helen, you crafty devil!
