Father Ted Drink! Feck! Arse! Girls!

I bought this comedy video from Amazon.uk - "Father Ted" (Best Of) $39.95



When I first saw this show advertised on Foxtel I thought it was one of those tedious pastoral dramas.

Boy was I wrong!!

I watched an episode on British TV's Top 100 Funniest Moments and I couldn't believe what I was seeing....



I can't even describe it. It was like complete bedlam. Mrs Doyle (the housekeeper) falling off the roof in the background while Father Ted and Father Dougal have a conversation.
A Hamster riding around underfoot, a drunken priest who speaks mainly four words:
FECK, ARSE, DRINK, and GIRRLS.

It reminded me of comedies in the spirit of The Young Ones, or Blackadder, or Red Dwarf. But maybe better. That's saying a lot.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some famous quotes from the series:

Father Ted (1952-1998)

Ted: I'm not a fascist. I'm a priest. Fascists dress up in black and tell people what to do. Whereas priests...
...More drink!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Father Dougal

Ted: It's not as if everyone's going to go off and join some mad religious cult just because we go off for a picnic for a couple of hours.
Dougal: God, Ted, I heard about those cults. Everyone dressing in black and saying our Lord's gonna come back and judge us all!
Ted: No... No, Dougal, that's us. That's Catholicism.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ted: Maybe he's agoraphobic.
Dougal: Jack? Scared of fighting? I don't think so, Ted!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mrs Doyle

Mrs Doyle:
Won't you have some cake, Father? It's got cocaine in it. Oh no, hang on, it's not cocaine, is it. What do I mean now? - the little things... Raisins!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Father Jack

Jack: Drink! Feck! Arse! Girls!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jack:
ARSEBISCUITS!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know what else to say except go and buy it. You will never look back.

ARSE!!!
