Father Guido Sardouchebag and Sister Golden Hair surprise everyone at ISIS with their vintage "RC" look for a top-secret covert op in Vatican City against a rebel faction of the Swiss Guard. Lana is confused, verging on angry, not to be asked to go on, if not run, the mission; she is the only agent fluent in Italian, German, French and Romansh. Ray cannot go, as the good Cardinals would see through his gay ...hillbilly accent? And, Cyril has a "thing" about church stuff. Unsure about black nuns and the whole RC thing, Lana still knows she is essential to the Rome mission. Archer never pays attention to context and he may, indeed, "avere la testa il culo," but the king of situational awareness may be the one whose head is furthest up his own ass. In an op not called "the old switcheroo," the agents go on Trope Alert (non si traduce bene) to save His Holiness the Pope, from danger. It may not translate well but Archer does know "Freebird." Will His Holiness the Pope dispense indulgences...

To learn how to go undercover as a priest, Sterling watches Lucy: The Daughter of the Devil
(2005), which featured a group of Vatican agents called the Special Fathers. H. Jon Benjamin
provided the voice of Special Father #1 on that show, as well as the voice of Satan. See more
The last shot of the episode is a view of the building where ISIS is located. During this scene, in the bottom left of the screen, you can see some pigeons standing on the sidewalk. You can see two cars seemingly drive behind the pigeons. It looks like the pigeons are on top of the car. See more
Nice one, Father Guido Sardouchebag!
