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

In real life, Jack would have failed the test and been forced to redo the test with the same board until he got it right. See more »
