Father Jack (Frank Kelly) has reached Stage Six of Progressive Hairy Hands disease, so off he's sent to the Old Priests' Home. With Jack out of the picture, the Bishop sends a replacement priest, Father Fintan Stack (Brendan Grace), an extremely obnoxious and crude fellow who blares "jungle music" at all hours, randomly drills holes in the wall, and insults the Fathers' friends. Like Jack, Fintan doesn't "get on well with strangers or people he knows," but his actions seem malicious compared to Jack's actions which seemed humorous. Missing Jack's tenderly abrasive ways, Ted (Dermot Morgan) and Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) retrieve him from "Jurassic Park." Just as Jack is about to pummel Fintan, it's discovered that Fintan has acquired Hairy Hands from contact with Jack's chair. After Fintan is sent off, things return to normal, with Jack quarantined in a bubble in his usual spot.
