Storyline

On a trip to the mainland to collect £200 winnings Ted gets punched by actor Richard Wilson and visits local caves with Dougal, where they encounter Father Noel Furlong, whose screeching contest causes a rockfall from which Dougal and Ted manage to escape. Meanwhile Jack, minus his new glasses, causes trouble at an AA meeting and Mrs Doyle gets into a fight with her friend Mrs Dineen over who should pay for their tea. With all three arrested Ted has to part with his £200 to set them free but worse is to come for Richard Wilson when he finds himself outside Ted's house on Craggy island. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Father Ted Crilly: [after spotting Richard Wilson] You know what he'd love? He'd really love it if someone came up to him and said his catchphrase.
Father Dougal McGuire: Oh, yeah, Ted! He'd love that! You should definitely do that.
Father Ted Crilly: Should I?
Father Dougal McGuire: Oh, yeah. I'd say no-one ever does that to him. He'll think you're hilarious. You know, this is one of those times where I'm absolutely, one hundred million percent sure that you'll be doing the right thing. I can safely say that you definitely, definitely won't regret doing that.
