Having saved the life of a suicidal fellow priest Ted gets a call from Father Buzz Cagney in Los Angeles, inviting him to work with him. Ted is excited but lacks the heart to tell Dougal, Jack and Mrs Doyle that they cannot go with him. However when Ted learns that his prospective parish is run-down and violent he decides against going - much to the relief of the others - and resigns himself to the fact that he will probably never leave Craggy Island.

Did You Know?
The original ending featured Father Ted joining other priests on a small ledge, preparing to commit suicide by jumping. However, due to Dermot Morgan
's untimely death just one day after filming ended, the writers changed it to a happier ending featuring clips from every episode; although they later said that the sadder ending "just didn't work". See more
