Funny: The Vicar of Dibley

  • "It Should Have Been Me!!!"
  • At Hugo and Alice's wedding, a woman shows up to interrupt the ceremony at a crucial moment, claiming that "the groom is already married". Turns out she came to the wrong church.
    • The best part is the stunned look on everyone's faces during her annountment and then afterward their expressions as they recover from the tense moment. As well as Hugo pulling Alice off the floor.
  • Alice reading aloud from an old Bible that uses ſ, and (of course) pronouncing it as f. Cue Geraldine very firmly heading her off before she gets to the word "succour".
    Alice: And he shall be thy...ffuu—
    Geraldine: 'Succour!'
  • Geraldine's initial reaction to Harry's proposal of marriage.
  • In "The Easter Bunny", Letitia's Last Request is for Geraldine to take up her mantle of the Easter Bunny, taking chocolate eggs around the village each Easter. However, it turns out that Letitia asked David to do the same. And every other member of the Parish Council too, in fact.
    Owen: Oh, hell. Any more and we'll be able to stage a production of bloody Watership Down.
  • "Sorry I'm late. Sheep exploded."
  • In "Radio Dibley", David calls Geraldine's phone to insult Alice and everybody else, unaware that the call is being broadcast live on Dibley Radio. Geraldine then gives up trying to tell him that they're live, and proceeds to trick him into talking about his haemorrhoids - before revealing that they're on radio. At this point, David makes a pathetic attempt to pass himself off as celebrity impersonator Rory Bremner. It works (at least on Owen).
  • "OH FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE, JUST KISS, YOU MORONS!"
  • Hugo tells Geraldine he can't tell her what precisely his father said when told about Hugo's relationship with Alice. He chooses the word 'duck' to replace the offending word.
    Hugo: He asked me what the duck I was playing at, said he didn't give a flying duck if I ducking loved Alice ducking Tinker, and if I ducking kissed her again, he'd make sure I was well and truly ducked.
    Geraldine: Ah, duck me.
  • And later, her silent "yeeeeeees!" gesture after Hugo refuses his father's ultimatum.
  • "No-no-no-no-no-no-Knowing me, no-no-no-no-no-no-knowing you... a-hah..."
  • Simon and Geraldine's Falling in Love Montage, which shows Geraldine climbing onto a picnic basket to kiss Simon and Geraldine famously jumping into a puddle that actually turns out to be a deep pool.
  • David's performances as King Herod in the nativity play. Starting from his belief that Herod was unfairly demonised, he delivers the line "Kill all the children in Bethlehem. But kill them gently!", then starts handing out sweets to the children in the audience (which causes one child to say "I love you Herod"), and then when Alice (playing Mary) goes into labour, a few people wonder about the wisdom of Herod assisting with the birth.
  • Geraldine's rant at the parish council after Simon dumps her, some of which is drowned out by loud drilling from outside.
    Geraldine: I'll tell you what I want, Jim. I want to find one man on Earth who isn't the spawn of Satan.
    David: Oh, good heavens, really.
    Geraldine: And you can shut it too, egghead. You're all the same, aren't you? You're just a bunch of [DRILLING] who should be lined up and force-fed Winalot up your nose 'til you die. Which is actually what I'd like to do to your oh-so charming brother, who seems to keep his brains in his [DRILLING] which, frankly, is the size of a button mushroom.
  • After accepting an unexpected marriage proposal from David, Geraldine experiences a Dream Sequence of their wedding. David wears a pink suit, Geraldine and Alice wear chocolate bars in their hair and then Sean Bean crashes the ceremony.
    Sean Bean: No! Don't do it Geraldine! It's me you love, not him!
  • Alice's theory about I Can't Believe It's Not Butter: There's a lot more butter around than we all thought.
  • The following exchange:
    Alice: I've been thinking...
    Geraldine: Always a bad thing.
    Alice: You know how Jesus married Mary Magdalene, and their descendants are hidden in these Da Vinci Codes?
    Geraldine: Ooh, I've got a bad feeling I know where this is going...
    Alice: And you know how Mary Magdalene is the "chalice" for Jesus's seed?
    Geraldine: Ooooh, I was right...
    Alice: Well, it's so obvious. What sort of name rhymes with "Alice"?
    Geraldine: So... let me get this straight. You, Alice, believe that you are the direct descendant of Jesus Christ.
    Alice: It's the only answer if you look at all the facts. I mean, why else have I had so many children?
    Geraldine: Because you don't know how condoms work!
  • Every man Geraldine knows turns up on her doorstep begging her to marry him instead of Harry the night before her wedding.
  • Geraldine gets an old (boy)friend from the seminary to officiate her wedding... not realizing he's still in love with her until it's too late. When begging doesn't work, and interposing his own name in the vows doesn't, he gets really passive-aggressive during the ceremony....
    "Let him speak now or forever hold your peace... [ Long pause ] Anyone?
    "And now, with the giving and receiving of a frankly pretty cheap ring...."
