Storyline

On a flight, Sister Bertrille suddenly gets dizzy and has double vision, forcing a crash landing. After being checked out by Dr. Tapia, he discovers she has an ear infection that will clear up in a couple of days. He is more concerned about the condition of the Reverend Mother. She is a bit anxious about Sister Bertrille in general but more so now with Sister Bertrille's ailment. The doctor however attributes the Reverend Mother's anxiety to work stress and thus calls in Father Lundigan, the church's psychologist, to allay the Reverend Mother's anxiety. The Reverend Mother makes the mistake of telling Father Lundigan that the source of her anxiety is the flying nun, or rather the landings of the flying nun. The father promptly thinks the Reverend Mother is going crazy. Perhaps it's something in the water at the convent Sister Jacqueline and Sister Bertrille herself support the Reverend Mother's story. The only way to convince Father Lundigan is for Sister Bertrille to fly for him. ... Written by Huggo

The Crazy Convent
2 July 2018 | by JordanThomasHallSee all my reviews

Sister Bertrille becomes dizzy while flying and crash lands in the convent's fountain. Dr. Tapia (Don Diamond, "F Troop") diagnoses her with an inner ear infection. The doctor also feels Reverend Mother Placido is reacting to a lot of stress and writes Father Lundigan (John Astin, "The Addams Family"), a psychologist. He arrives at the convent and the reverend mother confides in him of Sister Bertrille's flying abilities. When some of the sisters begin telling him the same he thinks they are all crazy. Sister Bertrille can't find enough wind or balance to fly, however. She tries to stall his leaving to allow time to fly and preserve their sanity.
