Escape from Victory - S3-E5
Question: Why was Father Ted wearing fake hands at the over 75 football game? Why not just use his own hands?
Chosen answer: Ted was using his real hands to control Father Jack's wheelchair using a remote control - the fake arms were so no-one would see him cheating.

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.
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?
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.
