* IrishNames: One episode features a character named Aoife (pronounced "EE-fa"), and Geraldine is unable to pronounce it properly (or, rather, she barely tries, likely due to the fact that she's jealous of the fact that Aoife is involved with Tristan, whom Geraldine has a crush on). Later, this conversation occurs:
-->'''Geraldine''': Oh, you Irish, you love your wacky spelling, don't you?
-->'''Tristan''': You can say that again, her brother's called Breifne.
-->'''Geraldine''': Oh, what, it spells ''Krtnqz''?
-->'''Aoife''': That's the guy!

** David, by Tristan, the Songs of Praise producer. Geraldine "confirms" it thanks to the disparaging (and homophobic) things David was saying about the show's selection of Dibley.

Added DiffLines:

* ProtestByObstruction: In the episode "Summer", Geraldine protests an attempt by the water company to turn Dibley's valley into a reservoir by chaining herself to her church. Once the media picks up on it, the main cast (except for Owen, who has a different plan) join her. Including Alice and Hugo's baby daughter, who is put in a bouncy chair chained to the church.

* FairytaleWeddingDress: Wildly subverted with Alice's ridiculous suggestions/designs, including one made out of linoleum, one with a train that is literally a train (''ThomasTheTankEngine'', specifically), and one with lots of hearts with a different Series/DoctorWho in each one. She finally settles on one with "I Love Hugo" emblazoned on it, and a light-up headdress.

* CallingTheOldManOut: When David tells Hugo that, if he marries Alice, then "you will no longer be welcome in this house, you will no longer be my son, and as this will attests, you will have nothing!" Hugo actually stands up to David (a rare feat for him), shoves the will back at him, and says, respectfully but coldly, "On the contrary, sir, I shall have everything in the world that I desire." In later episodes, it seems David was so surprised by this he ''gave up''.

A British SitCom, starring Dawn French as [[EarthMother Geraldine Granger]]. Following the Ordination of Women into the Church of England, Geraldine replaces the old archetypal [[TheVicar vicar]] in the sleepy and quirky country village of Dibley. The village has to get used to the laid back "babe with a bob cut and [[BuxomIsBetter a magnificent bosom]]" being their new vicar, while Geraldine herself has to cope with a village full of lunatics and inbreds, as well as the corrupt machinations of councillor [[DeadpanSnarker David Horton]]. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity]], as they say, ensues.
