lemon curd. That evening before the new vicar arrived a plate of anchovy and peanut butter sarnies had already been passed around!
|What was the name of Geraldine's predecessor who died during a church service?||The Vicar of Dibley
Reverend Pottle. Owen commented that 'Potty Pottle' was a regular old woman and if we have to have a lass I'd much prefer it was a young one'.
"I Can't Believe It's Not Butter". "You know 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter' and the stuff I can't believe is not 'I Can't Believe It's Not Butter', I can't believe they're not butter."
Pets. Amazingly the church is filled to overflowing, much to David's consternation. He was again hoping Gerry would fall flat on her face.
|Who runs against David Horton in the District Council elections?||Vicar of Dibley
Geraldine. Geraldine was chosen by popular acclaim. She forced David to make certain concessions before she agreed to drop out.
Stained glass window. No one could remember what the window actually depicted. It was suggested that the new one should show Moses, or sheep. Eventually Gerry made the decision.
Kylie Minogue. As Gerry said as an intro "I don't care what the bible says about girls kissing girls, I'd snog her". She is Hugo's favourite singer.
|Who was supposed to be the celebrity star of the Autumn Fayre?||Vicar of Dibley
Elton John. Alice's cousin, Reg Dwight, did show up, but was not the Rocket Man himself. David, of course, was not at all sympathetic.
'Songs of Praise'. Where Geraldine meets her perfect match, Tristan. It wasn't easy for the congregation to hear Gerry's jokes take after take after take.

Alice. "Alice, because that's my name!"
St Barnabas. David tried hard to get the Bishop to remove her. Fortunately he failed.

Jennifer and Joanna star in 'AbFab'. Leslie was a 'Blue Peter' presenter.
|Just before Alice's wedding, she stuns Geraldine with the news that she is related to Hugo. Because Alice is extremely dotty, she leads Geraldine to understand that they are related in which way?||'The Vicar of Dibley'
half brother and half sister. Thankfully, when Geraldine pushes the subject, she finds that Alice and Hugo are actually cousins, and legally able to marry after all.
Owen. Owen had carried a torch for Geraldine from the very beginning.
David. Geraldine finds herself unable to go through with the ceremony because she realises that she does not love him.
|After Geraldine broke up with her boyfriend, another person took over the services. Who was this?||'The Vicar of Dibley'
|Geraldine tells a joke to Alice at the end of every episode, and usually has to explain herself. At the end of the episode which sees Alice marry Hugo, she still tells a joke, but to whom?||'The Vicar of Dibley'
David. She is about to explain it, and realises that David got the joke.
Simon Horton. This episode includes the very funny scene where she and Simon are splashing in puddles along a country path. When Geraldine jumps into a puddle to splash she goes in down to her waist!
|In "The Christmas Lunch Incident" episode Geraldine eats four Christmas Dinners. When she goes to Frank's house, how many different vegetables are served?||'The Vicar of Dibley'
16. ...and then she has a sprout-eating competition with David. Also on the menu that day is tripe from Owen and a full dinner from Alice.
the Queen of 'Cordon Blugh'!. Mrs Cropley would make up the most interesting concoctions in her cooking, and in her flower arranging. It was not unusual to have a ham sandwich flavoured with lemon curd, or to find a pineapple placed squarely in the centre of an arrangement of carnations at a funeral.
Geraldine. When Geraldine asked Alice who she voted for at the last election, she was told that she definitely did not want the Conservatives to win, so she put a big cross by that name!
a tree goes through it. There is a wonderful PCC scene where a long discussion takes place about the Big Storm and the Big Wind and so forth. Marvellous scripting.
Kylie Minogue. Geraldine thought that Elton John was coming, having booked Reginald Dwight to appear. Kylie showed up on her doorstep on the day of the Fayre looking for Elton and Geraldine persuaded her to appear instead.
Songs of Praise. And, of course, it does not go according to plan.
