** After seemingly getting away with kicking Bishop Brennan up the arse, a completely inebriated Ted orders Dougal to make hundreds of copies of the photograph he took of the deed, including a 10-by-10, blown-up copy. [[spoiler: When Brennan returns to Craggy Island, he eventually sees the incriminating photo, propped up against the side of the parochial house, and he realises that Ted did indeed kick him up the arse.]]

* AffectionateParody: In "A Song for Europe", Fr. Dick Byrne's dramatic ballad ("When I was young, I had a dream / And though the dream was very small, it wouldn't leave me") is an affectionate parody of 60s MOR ballads by the likes of Lee Hazlewood or Anthony Newley & Leslie Bricusse (especially "What Kind Of Fool Am I").

** Many of the [[OneShotCharacter one shot clergy members]] crank this UpToEleven. Examples include Father Williams, who was caught with a box of machineguns in his house and is shot by the British Army over it, Father Billy, "The Spinmaster", a gambling addict who owes some dodgy types a large amount of money and ends up stealing the Craggy Island Parochial House new roof fund and Father Todd Unctious, who tries to steal Ted's golden cleric award and steals another priest's clothing "because it seemed to be the way things were going."

* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: In one episode, Ted is seen doing a racist "Chinaman" impression through the window of the church by a group of Chinese passers-by. He runs after them to apologize, only to be stopped by a couple of locals who applaud him for "standing up" to them and ask how they, too, can become full-time racists. Ted is horrified.
