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.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ted and Dougal look into the window of Dick Byrne's house, the rope pulling Father Cyril's skateboard is visible.

Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: As Bishop Brennan Holds Ted up against the bedroom wall after he has broken in, the crucifix behind Ted's head goes from hanging crooked to hanging straight between shots.

Add time

Tentacles of Doom - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: At the end when Ted flushes the toilet and kills the priest, we see an outside view of the priest and if you look at the bottom of his robes you can see a black square thing hanging down from the inside which must have been squirting the water out of his robes. Also to prove this, you are not able to see any water coming from the drain in the ground, which does not make any sense.

Continuity mistake: The lamps on either side of the door to the house are not there in some scenes - most noticeably in the opening credits, but in other scenes they are there.

Good Luck, Father Ted - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Terry MacNamee is talking to Father Ted on the phone on the island, his tie is blown over his shoulder. After a cut to Father Ted, his tie is hanging straight. After another cut, it is back over his shoulder again.

Good Luck, Father Ted - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Immediately before Ted and Dougal enter the fortune teller's tent, there is a scene which appears to have been shot much later in the day than those on either side - it's almost night time.

Add time

The Plague - S2-E6

Audio problem: When Bishop Brennan calls for the first time at the start of the episode, Ted panics and pretends to be French before hanging up the phone. You can still hear Bishop Brennan talking on the other end of the line for a few moments after Ted hangs up, which obviously shouldn't be possible.

Tentacles of Doom - S2-E3

Other mistake: The bishop that Dougal talks to about religion being pointless is supposed to be Irish but when he is telling Ted about his change of heart, the actor's English accent slips back in for a few seconds.

Hell - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: Father Dougal's hair changes position during the scene in the car, before they go on holiday.

Hell - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: When Jack's wheelchair is at the top of the cliff and about to fall off, it's obviously a stuntman and not Frank Kelly sitting in it. Similarly, when the wheelchair falls, the dummy used isn't even dressed like Jack.

Quotes

Mrs Doyle: There's always time for a nice cup of tea. Sure, didn't the Lord himself pause for a nice cup of tea before giving himself up for the world.
Father Ted: No, he didn't, Mrs Doyle!
Mrs Doyle: Well, whatever the equivalent they had for tea in those days, cake or something. And speaking of cake, I have cake!
[Holds up a cupcake.]
Father Ted: No thanks, Mrs Doyle.
Mrs Doyle: Are you sure, Father? There's cocaine in it!
Father Ted: WHAT?
Mrs Doyle: Oh, no, not cocaine. God, what am I on about. No, what d'you call them. Raisins.

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.
