A visiting nun points out to the Fathers that the "very drunk" Jack (Frank Kelly) is actually quite dead. Jack's old friends reminisce about his life and times, with one elderly priest violently lamenting about how Jack should have been anointed Pope. When Jack's will is read, Ted (Dermot Morgan) and Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) learn that they will inherit a huge sum of money, with the sole requirement that they spend the night before Jack's burial with his body, because Jack always feared that he'd be buried alive. Dreaming of their new riches, attempting a game of charades, and reflecting on the afterlife, the Fathers settle in for their night watching over Jack's body. But there's one problem, because Jack pulls a Lazarus out of his hat.
