The Old Grey Whistle Theft - S2-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where the soldier machine-guns the fleeing priest, no actual spent cases are seen ejecting from the weapon.

Correction: The Army routinely uses caseless ammunition in Northern Ireland.

A Song for Europe - S2-E5

Corrected entry: I don't want to sound picky, but in the lyrics of "My Lovely Horse," fetlocks cannot actually blow in the wind. They're part of the horse's leg. Wonderful song, though.

Correction: Fetlock: 1 a: a projection bearing a tuft of hair on the back of the leg above the hoof of a horse or similar animal. b: the tuft of hair itself 2: the joint of the limb at the fetlock. Definition 1b would blow in the wind.http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fetlock.

A Song for Europe - S2-E5

Corrected entry: The host of Eurosong instantly manages to tidy himself up before going on stage, shaved and all. Moments prior to that, he looks like he spent the night in a ditch.

Correction: This is actually the joke. You can hardly accuse Father Ted of being a show based entirely in reality.

The Plague - S2-E6

Corrected entry: Bishop Brennan says that Jack was seen by his friend to be wearing just a pair of socks and a hat. When this scene was shown earlier, Jack was not wearing a hat.

Correction: Jack had apparently been out sleepwalking for quite a few nights. We don't know that the people who saw him at the start are the same friends of Bishop Brennan, or even that he's talking about the same night.

Flight into Terror - S2-E10

Corrected entry: During this episode the aircraft the priests are travelling on changes from a four engined BAE 146 to a twin engined Boeing 737 and back again.

Correction: No, it doesn't. You see a BAE146 on the ground in an establishing shot, telling the audience that we are in an airport, then we see aeroplanes taking off, then we go to the interior of an airliner. There is no indication that the priests and nuns got onto the BAE146.

The Old Grey Whistle Theft - S2-E4

Corrected entry: If we go for the idea that there is one Parochial House on each island, Fr Frost's must be on a different island but we don't hear of where it is. (and wouldn't it take Dougal and Damo a while to get there?)

Correction: There are at least four parochial houses on Craggy Island, perhaps more. Father Ted's, Father Frost's, Fr Billy O'Dwyer's (visited in Think Fast, Father Ted) and Fr MacDuff's, (visited in Escape From Victory). We know next to nothing about Craggy Island, including its population and the number of priests serving the community.

Think Fast, Father Ted - S2-E2

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, a tree falls through the roof, even though they don't live anywhere near a tree.

rabid anarchist

Correction: In a subsequent episode we are told that a storm 'took away the whole East side of the island'. Seems to me that the storms they get on Craggy Island wouldn't have much trouble shifting a tree a mile or two.

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.
