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.

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: 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.
