Storyline

Geraldine is struck at how upset people are when their pets die and resolves to hold a special day when everybody brings an animal to church. David is appalled and tries to get the bishop to prevent but the bishop allows it,provided Geraldine takes the blame if it fails. A gutter press journalist turns up and tries to belittle the event with a stupid banner headline but the day turns out to be a huge success with the furry and feathered congregation on their best behaviour.

Trivia

When Emma was given the screenplay that included the tongue-twisting "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" speech on a Friday afternoon, her co-star Dawn French told her she would never be able to remember it by the next Friday when filming began in front of a live audience. That weekend, Emma and her husband drove to the country to visit relatives and Emma practised the speech over one hundred times in the car and learnt it perfectly for rehearsals the next Monday. Dawn French was speechless. See more »
