Did You Know?

This episode marks the first appearance of Bishop Len Brennan (Jim Norton) on the series.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Bishop Brennan points to a place in North America on a globe whilst describing a place in South America where he wishes to send Father Ted. This is possibly deliberate on the part of the script-writers (or actor Jim Norton) given the irate state of mind of the character in the scene.See more »
[to Father Hernandez about Jack]
Father Ted Crilly:He gets a kind of waxy build up in his ears.
Father Dougal:Yeah, but it's good though, in a way, cos we never run short of candles.
