Synopsis by Tim DiGravina

It's time again for the "All Priests Look-a-like Competition," but Ted (Dermot Morgan) is forced to scrap his plans to go as Elvis, after he learns that Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) and Jack (Frank Kelly) have similar plans. Thinking that he's going to have to resort to his usual Mother Theresa get-up, he still makes a small bet with Father Dick Byrne (Maurice O'Donoghue). Competition host and BBC reject Henry Sellers (Niall Buggy) pays a visit to the Craggy Island parish, and he lays waste to the Fathers' home and goes off into the wild after a miniscule sip of sherry. In the meantime, Jack is in a truly poor state after ingesting a bottle of Toilet Duck. With Sellers back to his usual self, Ted finds inspiration in Jack's wretched condition. Dougal, Ted, and Jack stage the "three phases of Elvis," and Dick Byrne's "supreme" hopes of victory are vanquished.
