Speed 3 - S3-E3

Plot hole: 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?

Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: In the bit where Bishop Brennan realises Ted did kick him up the arse, he runs up to Ted's house with his cape flying right out. The attachments holding up each side of the cape are visible.

Chirpy Burpy Cheap Sheep - S3-E2

Revealing mistake: When Fargo brings Chris the sheep to Ted's place, Jack crashes down the stairs drunk and breaks all the poles of the banister. It's obvious all the poles have been pre-cut.

Tentacles of Doom - S2-E3

Bishop Facks: So, Father. Do you ever have any doubts about the religious life? Is your faith ever tested? Anything you would be worried about? Any doubts you've been having about any aspects of belief? Anything like that?
Father Dougal: Well, you know the way God made us all, right? And he's looking down at us from heaven and everything?
Bishop Facks: Uh-huh.
Father Dougal: And then his son came down and saved everyone and all that?
Bishop Facks: Yes.
Father Dougal: And when we die we're all going to go to heaven?
Bishop Facks: Yes. What about it?
Father Dougal: Well, that's the bit I have trouble with.

And God Created Woman - S1-E5

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.

Tentacles of Doom - S2-E3

Question: In this episode, the actor who plays the priest who turns into a hippy seems to drop his accent occasionally, for instance when he says "Blind faith, that's all we have to go on", his accent sounds more London-ish when he says "go on". Is this normal for an Irish accent or what?

Gary O'Reilly

Chosen answer: It's characteristic of someone putting on a fake Irish accent.
