Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse - S3-E6

Corrected entry: After Ted kicks Bishop Brennan up the arse as Ted and Bishop Brennan leave the room Ted says "we'll call you a taxi". they go downstairs and then a taxi can be heard outside the house straight away even though nobody has rung a taxi at all.

Correction: When Father Ted wakes up, he hears a car horn outside and when he looks outside and sees Bishop Brennan running up to the house, there is a taxi seen in the background. After being "convinced" by Ted that he wasn't kicked in his butt, Bishop Brennan leaves the house and the taxi is still outside waiting for him.

Speed 3 - S3-E3

Corrected entry: When Father Ted says he has an idea after falling over that brick, he begins to write on the blackboard. Later it is revealed what he is writing on the board, but watch his hand movements carefully. His hand movements are far too erratic to be able to write "We Put The Brick On The Accelerator", it looks more like he is drawing something.

Correction: That's the whole point of the joke. Ted looks like he's drawing a complex intricate plan on the board, then when we see the reverse angle on what he's done it is a simple phrase he needn't have bothered to write down at all. This can't be called a mistake as it's obviously deliberate and entirely in keeping with the show's surreal humour.

Night of the Nearly Dead - S3-E7

Corrected entry: In 'Night of the Nearly Dead', when Eoin's agent is talking to Ted at the end she says a lot of his behaviour is caused by his 'problem' and Ted replies 'Ah, yes, he mentioned that earlier', but Dougal was the only one who heard him talking about it.

Shay

Correction: Dougal is apocalyptically stupid. When told not to mention Bishop Brennan's son, it is the first thing he does - the same with Ted Seller's ridiculous toupee. Obviously he has told Ted about Eoin's 'problem'.

Going to America - S3-E8

Corrected entry: When they are playing snakes and ladders with the depressed guy, right at the end Dougal grabs the wrong piece and moves it down the board. He was supposed to do it with the depressed guy's piece, but he does it with his own, and up until then he had been playing right, so we can't put it down to his stupidity.

David Mercier

Correction: We really don't know how well he had been playing up until then, since this is only the first or second move we see him make. With someone as stupid as Dougal, getting confused halfway through the game and moving the wrong piece is perfectly plausible.

Speed 3 - S3-E3

Corrected entry: Why doesn't Ted just push all the boxes out of the way of the milk float instead of rebuilding them one-by-one? [This was obviously done just so that they could get him smashing through them in the car.] Also, why would a stack of boxes be positioned like that on a road anyway?

Correction: This isn't a plot hole and it isn't a film mistake - it's a joke, wholly in character for a surreal show that includes bizarre elements.
