Episode Summary

A Christmassy Ted
Ted, Dougal and a host of other misfit priests become lost in Europe's largest lingerie department, and an ecclesiastical scandal seems inevitable. Fortunately, Ted's Vietnam-style leadership brings the priests safely out, and for his services to the Church Ted is awarded a coveted Golden Cleric. However, he uses his acceptance speech to wreak verbal revenge on each and every person who has done him down over the years. Meanwhile, Mrs Doyle fears redundancy when the Parochial House gets new technology in the form of a tea-making machine. Needless to say, everything turns out for the best...well...sort of.moreless

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Ted presses the button on the tea machine, the tea cup isn't in the slot in front of it, but in the next shot, the cup has now moved into the slot.

      • "Ireland's largest lingerie department" in this episode is in fact Dunnes Stores in Ennis. The sequence was filmed just before the shopping centre was opened.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Father Jack: A pair of feckin' women's knickers!

      • Ted: Where did you manage to stick Jack in the end?
        Dougal: Ah, they've got this great place, Ted where you can put people who don't want to go shopping. They can just stay there and have a laugh.
        Ted: Really? Never heard of that. Were there other people there?
        Dougal: Ah, loads of people, Ted. He'll be fine.
        (Meanwhile, Jack is in a creche, smoking a cigarette and surrounding by children playing)

      • Dougal: (about the Christmas tree lights) Gone, back, gone, back.

      • Dougal: What's going on?
        Another priest: I think Ted has a plan.
        Dougal: No, I mean in general.

      • Dougal: (talking about scary films) Ah c'mon, Ted - a Volkswagen with a mind of its own driving around all over the place and going mad - if that's not scary, I don't know what is!
