Insert manners here

I was reading "Percy" (one of the Thomas the Tank Engine books) to Elijah before bed tonight. We got to the part where Harold the Helicopter brings hot cocoa for the passengers as Percy is struggling to get through the flood. I read, "'Thank you Harold,' said Percy." Before I could start the next sentence, Elijah interjected, complete with character voice: "'You're welcome, Percy,' said Harold." I wasn't sure whether to laugh or beam with pride. I did both and gave him a hug to boot.
