Father Ted

Speed 3 - S3-E3

Plot hole: A plot point for this episode is that Pat Mustard is on the phone to Ted, cackling evilly, for most of the third act. However, after Pat Mustard makes the initial call, Ted uses the phone to call two other priests for backup. Yet later on we see that Pat Mustard is still on the line, when Father Jack picks up the phone and listens in. So how could Ted make that other call when Pat Mustard was still on the line?

And God Created Woman - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene were Mrs Doyle is listing the rude words and phrases used in one of Father Ted's favorite author's book's, she goes through all of them fine. Apart from the last one, when she says "Get your boll*cks out of my face" you can hear her laughing in the word "boll*cks" before she exits the room.

And God Created Woman - S1-E5

Trivia: In the scene where Mrs. Doyle is telling Ted about the profanity in the book, several of the swears were not in the original script but were introduced by Pauline McLynn during filming. You can see Dermot Morgan trying not to laugh at her last line "Ride me sideways", which he hadn't been expecting.

Trivia: As a form of tribute to this wonderful comedy, the island of Inis Mor has just hosted the second "Tedfest". I was there along with thousands of fellow Father Ted fans. A fitting way to celebrate a great comic.

Trivia: Dermot Morgan (Ted) died on Feb 28 1998, only one day after filming the final episode.

Question: In this episode, the actor who plays the priest who turns into a hippy seems to drop his accent occasionally, for instance when he says "Blind faith, that's all we have to go on", his accent sounds more London-ish when he says "go on". Is this normal for an Irish accent or what?

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It's characteristic of someone putting on a fake Irish accent.
