Have you ever walked in on the middle of a conversation and as it develops, you realise that you have absolutely no idea what is being discussed? This happens to many of us and it often leads to problems, regardless of whether they are large or small. It seems as if it is also a difficulty on the vicar of Dibley.
The scene opens with Jim talking to the committee about some unwelcome visitors that had come over into a field. It seems as if a confrontation ensued and after some discussion between the two parties, they decided that they would leave. All of this sounds like a relatively normal happening, and Jim seems to be quite proud of the fact that he was able to get them to move. In the end, however, we discover what he is actually talking about, and it is quite funny.
In life, we often hear part of a discussion and it leads to difficulties, perhaps even to a rift that is difficult to mend. On the Vicar of Dibley, however, we get to take a look at what is happening from outside and laugh at the situation.
