Synopsis by Tim DiGravina

Ted (Dermot Morgan) is terrified, as he has to kick Bishop Brennan (Jim Norton) "up the arse," to appease Father Dick Byrne's (Maurice O'Donoghue) forfeit desires (see the "Escape From Victory" episode). Byrne demands photographic evidence, so Dougal (Ardal O'Hanlon) must memorialize the kick. Brennan soon visits, because Byrne has told him that his holy image is appearing in a skirting board at the Craggy Island parish. With Ted in a frenzy, Dougal suggests that Ted won't get into trouble because Brennan will never expect it or believe that it happened. The kick is planted, the photo evidence is a success, and Brennan is stunned speechless. During drunken boasting, Ted tells Dougal that he wants a huge 10'x10' copy of the photo. When Brennan returns, now sure that he's been kicked, Ted convinces him that he's wrong. But Dougal appears with the enlarged copy, and Brennan takes his arse-for-an-arse revenge.
