Trivia

The "Ferrero Rocher gag" pokes fun at a commercial that became something of an icon in 1990s Britain: we see a glitzy party in a beautiful reception room, beautiful women in expensive dresses, dashing men in evening dress. Through the throng we see a uniformed butler - he looks to his master (we presume) who nods. The butler then carries a silver salve loaded with a pyramid of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, which the party guests are invited to share. Widespread approval among the guests, one of whom says to the butler's master: "Ambassador, with these Ferrero Rocher you are really spoiling us". Father Ted itself inspired a far less successful advert for the British Government's HM Inland Revenue. In order to promote the Revenue's new self-assessment scheme, Pauline McLynn revisited her role as Mrs. Doyle trying to entice the viewer to go on line to make their tax return - involving her saying "go on, go on, go on, go on....go on line! Go on line, go on line, go on line...." In an opinion poll in the UK it was voted as the most annoying ad of the year.


Quotes

Father Ted: And how are we going to do that?
Father Dougal: We'll print up some bingo cards on our printing press and... oh.
Father Ted: Yes, it's the lack of a printing press that lets us down there. Or bingo balls. Or a PA system. Or in ...

Crazy Credits

The sixth episode of the second season begins with the usual credits, but instead of Father Ted, the title reads: Father Ben. It then cuts to Dougal sitting in front of the TV, watching Father Ben. Ted comes in and makes fun of the character of Father Ben, saying he has no self-awareness at all. It then cuts to the normal credits.
