Synopsis by Tim DiGravina

The Fathers are on a plane filled with priests returning from a holy ceremony at a golf course. Ted (Dermot Morgan) shares stories with old friends, compares tacky souvenirs with Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon), and tells Dougal that his nickname from younger years was Father Fluffy Bottom. During a tour of the cockpit, monkey-priest Father Kay (Jimmy Keogh) sends the plane into a nosedive and Dougal makes matters worse by emptying a majority of the plane's fuel. Without even enough fuel to make an emergency landing, Ted stages a writing contest to see who'll get the plane's two parachutes. Since he's so cool under pressure, Ted is asked by the "captain" to climb outside the plane to do repairs. Ted obliges, but seemingly at the cost of his own sanity.
