There are times when we might say something and, although we say it with the understanding that people know what we are saying, misunderstandings may take place. That is true in real life and it certainly is true on the Vicar of Dibley. In fact, it happens frequently and it is one of the reasons why we get the chance to laugh so often.
In this clip, Alice Tinker is coming in to pay a visit to the Vicar, who is busy typing up the newsletter. Alice has something on her mind, and it takes the vicar by surprise. You see, the vicar had mentioned in her last newsletter that Jesus was coming and Alice needed to know when it was happening. After all, she didn’t want it to be at an inconvenient time, such as when she was in the bathroom.
In the end, the vicar gets to straighten things out but you are left wondering if Alice really understood. It is one of those scenes that just makes you laugh and it doesn’t matter how many times you have seen it.
