Synopsis by Tim DiGravina

A leaky roof is cause enough for Fathers Ted (Dermot Morgan) and Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) to set up a raffle. Bishop Brennan supplies them with a shiny new car for the raffle, but Ted immediately demolishes it with a single hammer, in a mad attempt to correct an imperceptible dent. Ted borrows an identical car from the Dancing Priest (James Benson), who promptly dies of a heart attack. The Fathers fix the raffle so that they'll be able to win the car themselves. The raffle is a success, thanks in part to the gambling-crazed Spinmaster Father Billy (Gerry O'Brien) who gets himself in trouble with loan sharks after buying 2,000 tickets. Things take a turn for the worse when Father Jack (Frank Kelly) totals the car in a drunken rush to get more drink, and the Spinmaster steals all of the raffle money. A tree falling through what's left of the roof adds one final leaky insult to injury.
