In this Christmas special from 1996, Ted manages to avert a major catastrophe when he, Dougal and a group of other priests become lost in the lingerie section of a clothes store. Managing to get them out of the store and averting another scandal in the catholic church. Ted is awarded a Golden Cleric. Ted is undoubtedly pleased but things take an unexpected turn when a priest called Father Todd Unctious turns up who claims to be an old friend of Teds. Although Ted can't for the life of him remember who he is. Written by

Before the Golden Cleric Award ceremony a man comes up to Ted and Dougal and asks who's who. Dougal says "I'm Dougal and that's Ted" then Ted replies "No I'm Dougal and HE'S Ted" while making hand gestures. Both the dialogue and hand gestures are just like a scene from a Laurel and Hardy short with Oliver Hardy doing the hand gestures and mixing up the names. See more
There is a visit to a department store which boasts (we're told) the largest lingerie department in Ireland. However, the establishing shot of the store is of Oxford Street in London. It even features a bus stop with the easily recognisable London Transport logo. The interior of the shop however is indeed a lingerie section in Dunnes Stores, an Irish shopping chain. See more
