[first lines]
Jim Trott: [during a meeting] And I was down to the last two boxes! £250,000 in one box, 10p in the other! And the Banker offered me £100,000, and No-no-no-no-no-no-Noel Edmonds asked me the question, "Deal or No Deal?" Well, I wanted to deal. So I said, "No-no-no-no-no deal." And for some reason that I cannot fathom, they thought I meant, "No-no-no-no deal."
Owen Newitt: And what was in your box?
Jim Trott: [holds up a coin] 10p.

The Vicar becomes smitten by a newcomer to Dibley Village.
26 December 2006 | by annie_kinnsSee all my reviews

This episode was shown on Christmas day in England. I have to say that it was the highlight of Christmas for me and my family. Dawn French and the writers haven't lost their golden touch, and it's a shame this is the last series of The Vicar of Dibley. Dawn French is completely brilliant as per usual, she never fails to warm your heart whilst getting a laugh. The rest of the cast are just as wonderful, their character's feel so comfortable now, you believe you have known them for years. And the newcomer Harry, played by actor Richard Armitage, is perfect as the tall, dark and handsome stranger who with one smile sweeps the Vicar off her feet! Well done to all the cast, crew and writers for giving us such a special treat this Christmas. I can't wait for the concluding episode on New Year's Day!
