(Dougal struggles to remember his prayers.)

Father Dougal: Our Father, who art in heaven...

Father Ted: (sternly) Hallowed.

Father Dougal: Hallowed be thy..

Father Ted: Name!

Father Dougal: Papa don't preach...

Father Ted: Dougal, you know you can praise God in other ways.

Father Dougal: Oh yeah, like that time you told me I could praise him just by leaving the room.

Father Ted: Yes, that was a good one all right.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt

Charlie: [trying to say that he is a philanthropist] I'm a full-on-rapist. Y'know? Africans. Dyslexics. Children. That sorta thing.

Jackie: I'm sorry. Did you say that you are a "full-on-rapist"?

Charlie: No, no, did I say that? No no no no no! I help people, you know what I mean? I'm a full..a full...a full-an...

Jackie: A philanthropist?

Charlie: Yeah, that's exactly what it is! It gets blocked up in my mouth, and I don't say it no good...

(A moment of very awkward silence follows)

Charlie: I'm a janitor at a bar.

Through art

What I see is the purpose of art and the necessity of art, is that we are able get closer to a truth about our life that we cannot necessarily see or frame through an ordinary experience. ~ Katrín Sigurdardóttir
