Trivia

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".
