Originally when giving his description of the beast, Dougal was meant to say that "instead of a mouth, it's got two faces." Ardal O'Hanlon didn't think the line was funny, and while recording the episode he changed it on the spur of the moment. His new version ("instead of a mouth, it's got four arses") proved so successful that Dermot Morgan was forced to wait several minutes before he could continue, due to the amount of laughter from the studio audience.

When Ted is telling everyone about Fargo Boyle buying the BBC Sound Effects LP he says that it was bought before Father Crilly had a chance to. He meant to say either Father Dougal or Father McGuire seeing as it was Dougal who wanted to buy it and he himself is Father Ted Crilly. See more »
