Father Ted

I've noticed that there seems to be quite a few Father Ted fans around here and I haven't watched Father Ted for ages (myself and one of my friends used to be HUGE fans of the show). So, remind me of what I've been missing! Favourite quotes, characters, episodes etc. Go nuts!

"Oh come on, Ted, it's like that stuff we learned in seminary--heaven and hell and everlasting life, and all that. You're not meant to take it seriously, Ted!"

"Yes, you are, Dougal!"

"What, heaven, hell and everlasting life?"

"Yes!!"

*snicker*

"I told you Dougal, that money was just resting in my account"


MRS DOYLE: "I hope you like my scones Father, I put cocaine in them"

TED: "Cocaine?!"

MRS DOYLE: "No, not cocaine, what was it now? Ah, yes, raisins that was it, I always get those two mixed up!"


And that episode where the fathers are all on a plane that's about to crash and there's only two parachutes which Ted is desperately trying to persuade Dougal that they should have. The scene then cuts to a mid-air Father Jack with one parachute closely followed by the drinks trolley wearing the other.

OMG!! - It's just one of the funniest sitcoms on BBC America (at least, that's where I see it )

I believe it's actually Irish, but it's a sitcom about Father Ted, who's kind of been banished to Craggy Island (a miniscule parish) because he's such a horrible priest. Mrs. Doyle is the air-headed housekeeper (whose answer to everything is "A nice, hot cup of tea"), Dougal is the young, idiot priest-in-training, and Father Jack is a crotchety, unintelligible, vile retired priest who's only comprehensible word is "DRINK!!" (the distilled type, mind you).

It's particularly funny to me, because here in the States you never see such irreverance when it comes to religious matters. We're waaay too uptight about that! Anyway, it's a great show - you should watch it if you ever get the chance!

I love the episode where the milkman (what WAS his name???) is caught 'making his rounds' - if you know what I mean.

Father Ted is absolutely hilarious I have them all on tape.

"It's fabulous being a priest - think of all that comfort you bring to the sick and dying. They love it, they can't get enough of it!"

"Meals are at eleven, one, half-two, three, five, seven, and nine, and if you want a quick snack, you can just ask Mrs. Doyle there."

Check your library, you can usually check a boxed set or two out there. I love how they get in regular sitcom scrapes, only they're all priests and nuns--like when Dougal fell under the influence of the punk priest and had his ear pierced.

The Fun Fair episode was definitely my favorite.
"Father! I've killed a man!"
"Oh, we'll talk about that later. Right now, I'm going to be on the telly!!"

TED:<something along the lines of> well, I hope you're practising safe sex!

MILKMAN GUY WHOSE NAME I CAN'T REMEMBER EITHER: You wouldn't be advocating the use of contraception dere would ya Father?

TED:

To everyone who hasn't seen it/heard of it: it's really silly (I mean that in a good way) and quite surreal but I completely recommend it. As do U2, they thank Father Ted in the thank you section of 'POP'. (As some of you may have noticed from another thread I posted, I am very anal and actually read the thank-you section in albums, all the time thinking "WOW! They know some-and-so" or "what the heck did that jerk have to do with anything?")

Since falling in love with this show, I have started to say


Ah, go on!


all the time


And I watch it on BBC America too!


My favorite episode (that I've seen) is the one with the sheep contest... I almost peed I was laughing so hard the first time I saw that!
