Show generally

Corrected entry: How were Ted and Dougal able to understand Father Hernandez during the game of Cluedo, given that they couldn't speak Spanish? The three priests have a long and convoluted conversation that covers topics as diverse as the difficulty of living a celibate lifestyle, the attractiveness of Mrs Doyle, Father Jack's alcohol consumption and his problem with earwax, and the type of presents Father Hernandez has for Ted and Dougal. I know it was being translated at the time. Just puzzling.

Correction: That's the joke.

Show generally

Corrected entry: In reference to the scene where a soldier opens fire and no shell casings are seen, Father Ted is set in Eire. The rir would not patrol south of the border, let alone on an island. Any link to the north is irrelevant.

Correction: Very true - and Father Ted is in fact calling from the parochial house on Craggy Island. However, at no stage are we told where the scene with the soldiers is set. Obviously the priests Ted calls are visiting Northern Ireland when they encounter the Army patrol and the gun runners.

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.

Mistakes

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?

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.
