Ever since De Trip on Saturday, I’ve been pondering the Ted and Dougal exchange – when Dougal went to the reunion and ‘D’you know what, Ted? They’d all become firemen!’ Comprehensive Google searches have failed to bring it up. Did I imagine it?
Meanwhile up in Kinloch Rannoch on Sunday, I felt a bit like Mrs Doyle. Brought my sermon but couldn’t find it. It wouldn’t matter a lot but then I thought it might be in the middle of the copies of the Diocesan Review I’d put at the back of the church. So I went out to the car to check. And found some German tourists thinking about coming in. So I hustled them inside and they said, ‘We don’t think we can stay. We’re Roman Catholics’ ‘Ah go on, go on, go on.’ And they did.
I checked the memorable quotes section at IMDb for “Father Ted” but didn’t find any related to reunions or firemen.
There is a DVD series available, so maybe one could get the DVD set and watch every episode – that would solve the mystery.
My Hero gets more air time on PBS over here (at least where I live) than Father Ted, but I have caught a few episodes now and then.
Worrying isn’t it. Someone around here is paid to keep a grip on reality and I always thought it was me. Now I’m not so sure.
But surely you would have to give very high marks for such a plausible storyline
A somewhat less than comprehensive browse through my book of the complete scripts has also failed to identify the fireman line +David – so there is the possibility that you may indeed be imagining it! Worrying indeed!
