Forgive Me, Father (#2.18)
16 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dorothy likes the new teacher in the school and decides to ask him out for dinner at her place.But when he arrives everyone is shocked because he is a priest. After having a nice evening together, he tells Dorothy that she has inspired him to leave church. This leads to another misunderstanding because girls see it as him wanting to leave priesthood for love.

A pretty funny episode with a good story. Blanche was especially funny. I loved her conversation with the priest when he comes it and she is all blabbering because she is so shocked.

Sophia lecturing the priest in the confession booth was another great moment.
