* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Jack's nude sleepwalking in "The Plague" definitely qualifies for he nevers engages in it again; nor does anyone bring it up. Subverted with the music video dream from "A Song for Europe"; a clip from that appears in the final episode

** BizarroEpisode: The whole fecking episode may also qualify as a BLAM, as the rabbits appear unexpectedly and unrealistically appear and disappear with Jack changing rooms, besides the nude sleepwalking. Subverted with "Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest", as one of the lines in "Escape from Victory" asks if Jack was 'dead again'.

* GrowingTheBeard: While the first series isn't considered bad by a long shot, it's noticeably slower-paced than the two that follows, and has much more of a focus on cringe comedy than the surreal and absurd humour that the show would become known for. The second series is seen as when the really show found its footing.

** Another cringeworthy one is Jack's P.E teaching.
--->'''Teaching Nun:''' He's also asked me to remind you that it is very hot today, so there will be no need for your tracksuit tops.



*** Likewise, the scene from the previous episode of the dancing priest dying from having a heart attack due to too much dancing. As seen in the HarsherInHindsight example, Morgan's constant reshoots of his dance scene in "Going To America" exacerbated the heart problems he was feeling during filming, and prevented him getting treatment in time. So effectively, what was one of the most absurd and improbable deaths in Father Ted ended up coming true.



** The titling of the penultimate episode "Night Of The Nearly Dead". Dermot Morgan died after the filming of the following (and last) episode "Going To America".

** "Down with this sort of thing" posters occasionally appear at political protests in Britain. When they started showing up, Graham Linehan tweeted that he was "immensely proud" that his work has had such a cultural impact.

** One of Dougal's remarks about the 'Beast' is that "instead of a mouth, it has four-arses'. Four-arsed creations have be referred to or shown in WesternAnimation/SouthPark years later.
