A Friend in Need is the eighth episode ever made in Season 6.
Jack has learnt his lesson and when he stops himself from jumping in again, Alfie congratulates him. However, when Ned the clumsy steam shovel knocks out the keystone from a bridge as Thomas approaches, Jack jumps in and holds the bridge up with his scoop until Thomas is safe, at which stage Jack emerges with bent arms. Jack is worried what Miss Jenny will say, but she is pleased with Jack's bravery and accepts Jack into the Pack.
- When Jack and Alfie load Max, Max's right-rear wheel spins around. It spins again in the close-up of Jack loading dirt into Max.
