On a trip to the mainland to collect £200 winnings Ted gets punched by actor Richard Wilson and visits local caves with Dougal, where they encounter Father Noel Furlong, whose screeching contest causes a rockfall from which Dougal and Ted manage to escape. Meanwhile Jack, minus his new glasses, causes trouble at an AA meeting and Mrs Doyle gets into a fight with her friend Mrs Dineen over who should pay for their tea. With all three arrested Ted has to part with his £200 to set them free but worse is to come for Richard Wilson when he finds himself outside Ted's house on Craggy island.

A optician's board always starts with one letter on the top, then the number of letters in each line increases as they get smaller. The whole point of the boards is to test one's vision. In real life, Jack would have failed the test and been forced to redo the test with the same board until he got it right. See more
