** Likewise, the scene in another episode where Ted tries to assure Niamh Connolly that not all priests are pedophiles, and ends up suggesting there may be as many as 10 million priests who ''are'' pedophiles.

** There's an episode where Ted angrily tells a cop about the good old days, when the police would cover up crimes committed by Catholic priests. The whole thing is PlayedForLaughs, but can come off as somewhat disturbing in light of the massive pedophilia scandal that rocked the church years later.

** The last episode of season one shows the apparent death of Father Jack. He leaves Ted and Dougal £500,000 in will, with the condition that they must stay with him until he's buried. Ted and Dougal basically just treat this as an obstacle to get past so they can claim the money. However, right at the end of the episode, Ted clearly begins to feel sad over the loss of Jack and delivers this heart wrenching passage while an organ version of the main theme plays:

** Between English and Irish fans, the debate rages over whether the shoe counts as Irish or not: All-Irish cast, including several iconic Irish comedians such as Pat Shortt, Tommy Tiernan, Graham Norton and Brendan Grace, Irish writers and a strongly Irish setting, versus an English broadcaster and a huge English fanbase.

* HarsherInHindsight: Dermot Morgan was actually having heart problems during the filming of the Shaft scene of the last episode "Going To America". However, Tommy Tiernan (who played the suicidal priest) kept flubbing his lines, and the producers would not let Dermot go until it was finished. To make matters worse, Dermot had to do dance moves in this scene, and doing them repeatedly exacerbated his condition. He died less than 24 hours later. If the reshoots of the scene had been stopped and Dermot had gotten treatment, there is a chance he might have lived. However, there is equally a chance that he might have died whilst away and the rest of the episode would never have been filmed.
** The set-up is that the Catholic church deals with miscreant priests by quietly shuffling them off to some out-of-the-way parish until it all blows over. Sadly, this turned out to be the case in real life too, and with worse offenders than Ted, Dougal and Jack.

** The episode "Grant Unto Him Eternal Rest" had Father Jack's apparent death after drinking floor polish. Sadly, the episode is harder to watch now that Frank Kelly has passed.
