To the priests' horror the boring, monosyllabic Father Stone comes to stay and innocently defies all attempts to get rid of him. In desperation Ted and Dougal head for the golf course during a thunder storm but are followed by Father Stone, who gets struck by lightning. Recovering in hospital Stone seems to have changed, becoming chatty and animated and hailing Ted as the hero who saved him. A guilty Ted declares that Stone can continue to stay, which he does - whilst reverting back to his original boring self. Written by don @ minifie-1

[In the hospital waiting area]
Father Dougal McGuire: Who would have thought being hit by lightening would land you in hospital?
Father Ted Crilly: What? What are you talking about? Of course it can land you in hospital
Father Dougal McGuire: Well it's not usually serious is it Ted. I mean, I was hit by lightening a few times and I never had to go to hospital.
Father Ted Crilly: Yes Dougal, but you're different from most people. All that happened to you was that balloons kept sticking to you.
