  • Fathers Ted, Dougal and Jack go on holiday in a god-forsaken caravan park near a whopping total of TWO points of interest nearby.

    Best Father Ted episode EVER. Not only is the title absolutely perfect, but this episode containts both of my favorite lines - Mrs. Doyle's "They've got cocaine in 'em!" and Ted's "These here are small - those out there are far away."

    When Ted and Jack and Dougal attempt an amusing vacation, they fail utterly - well, Ted and Dougal fail utterly. Father Jack goes missing and ends up on a yacht with gorgeous women and plenty of drink. Ted and Dougal get stuck in a wretchedly tiny caravan with no games, no tea, horrendous weather, and an unwelcome visitor - the fabulously antic Graham Norton as a hyper-active youth pastor who leads his little flock in river dancing 'til dawn.

    Add complications with a fellow vacationer and his wife and a giant lorry full of human waste, and you've got TV magic.moreless
  • Dougal, Ted and Jack go for a caravan holiday where some weird things happen!! Fantastic episode!!

    This is one of the best episodes of Father Ted and is always quoted as being the funniest.

    It follows Dougal, Ted and Jack's adventures to the caravan park. What follows is a mix-up with a loved-up couple, having to share the caravan with an annoying priest and strange wonders to see.

    In the most classic scene of the entire series, Ted tries to explain to Dougal about the difference in trees being small figurines and just being far away. Its a scene that still makes me laugh.

    If i was to recommend an episode of Father Ted it would definatley be this one!!!! Fabulousmoreless
