The best line in Father Ted is NOW!
Black Books > Father Ted
but Father Ted is the best sitcom ever.
The best line is (I'm paraphrasing) when Dougal says "Ted, you know how Jesus was born to save us all?"
"And how he was the son of the holy Virgin?"
"And how he died and was resurrected to eternal life?"
"Well, that's the part I have a problem with..."
Father Ted's not *that* good, though. Spaced, Fawlty Towers, Blackadder and early Red Dwarf beat it. The third series was highly disappointing, so maybe that's why I'm not as impressed.
It was when Tom runs into the Post Office with a gun, and runs out with loads of money and the alarms ringing.
Ted asks "You havn't been up to your old tricks now have you Tom?"
and Tom replies "No, it's my money Father. I just didn't want to fill out the forms."
It's up there with the best of 'em. As is the bit where Ted's swearing at Dougal to 'play the fucking note'
was it the ones about cows and perspective?
'These ones are small, but the ones out there are far away'?
and youd end up with lumps of metal in your face and it would go all red and puffy'
'What you mean like father Bigley'
'Yes Dougal exactly like father bigley'
sorry but there is no 'one best line' in father ted there are soooo many good ones
"We all say things we don't mean...even the pope"
"I met the pope? What? That fella living in the art gallery? You'd think he'd be taller"
"Women's knickers!! A PAIR OF FECKING WOMEN'S KNICKERS!"
"Award! Award! Award! Why NOT! AWARD AWARD AWARD"
"That's the great thing about Catholisicm....it's so vague, nobody really knows what it's all about"
WHAT A MAN WHAT A MAN WHAT A MONEY GOOD MAN....that's not from Father Ted and don't ask
It's generally sick people you get in hospitals?'
'Down with this sort of thing... Careful now'
"It's all a bit far fetched really"
'So, Ted, I hear you're a racist now?'
Dougals, "Jack told me once he didn't even believe in god"
On the plane about to crash a priest stands up and says, "maybe we could pray to god and he could....."
Everyone turns to face him.
He sits down.
Ted, "Riiight....moving on"
in other news. wooh! the go team!
or words to that effect...
and far away wins
It's always funny every time you think about it.
