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.

* MissConception: The first episode where Alice is pregnant with her and Hugo's first child, she mentions that she can't be pregnant because "the hamster didn't turn blue". To her credit Geraldine lampshades it by saying, "I don't think I'm familiar with that particular pregnancy test."[[note]]Apparently it's a traditional pregnancy test in Dibley. The woman urinates on a hamster, and if it turns blue she's pregnant. [[FridgeLogic Make of that]] [[FridgeBrilliance what you will.]][[/note]]

* TheTag: Each episode would end with Geraldine telling Alice a joke, which Alice would then [[DontExplainTheJoke completely misinterpret]]. One episode broke this trend by having her tell the joke to David Horton, (Alice was on her honeymoon), who ''did'' get it and thought it was hilarious.
** It was hilarious, but the real joke was that Geraldine starts explaining it to him out of habit.
