Three bishops arrive on the island to upgrade a holy relic and Ted is teaching Jack to cut out his swearing and converse with the trio properly. The ceremony goes extremely well, as does the episcopal visit - initially. Unfortunately the oldest visitor, who has a heart complaint, dies as a result of the house's faulty plumbing, another gets into a fight with Jack and the third, having been impressed by Dougal's bizarre ramblings, decides to quit the church and become a hippie in India.

Father Dougal McGuire: Well, you know the way God made us all, right? And he's looking down at us from heaven and everything?
Bishop Facks: Uh-huh.
