Episode Quotes
Mrs Doyle: It's only a stupid game of football for goodness sake.
Father Dougal: Mrs. Doyle, I'm sorry but no. There's nothing stupid about football. And there's nothing at all stupid about the annual, all priests, five aside, over seventy-fives, indoor football challenge match...against Rugged Island.
