Synopsis by Tim DiGravina

Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) has a new pet bunny, who soon begets dozens more. The Fathers must hide the bunnies from Bishop Brennan (Jim Norton), who's visiting Craggy Island to make sure Ted (Dermot Morgan) is taking the necessary precautions to keep Father Jack (Frank Kelly) from sleepwalking "bullock-naked" all over town. Brennan hates rabbits, having had an encounter years earlier in an elevator where many bunnies "got into" his robes. The Fathers try a number of unsuccessful schemes to occupy the bunnies, including offering them to the dog track as racers and having Tom (Pat Short) "deal" with them, but they're ultimately stuck with them. As Ted shows Brennan Jack's new bed restraints, Dougal hide the rabbits in Brennan's room. The Fathers give strange explanations for the rabbit cage and droppings Brennan finds. A naked Jack wanders into Brennan's room and gets into bed with him, and the bunnies follow suit.
