After seeing the film 'Wall Street' Del fancies himself as Peckham's answer to Gordon Gecko and changes his image. He even - temporarily - gives up the Nag's Head for a trendy wine bar where he is just a little too casual for his own good. Rodney goes on a computer course and meets a nice girl called Cassandra. When she offers him a lift home, he is ashamed to tell her where he lives and gets her to drop him off in an upmarket suburban avenue. She eventually rumbles his deception, but agrees to go on a date anyway. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


The decision to extend the running times of episodes was the point where Only Fools and Horses (1981) came into its own as a comedy-drama, according to David Jason. Now not just a sitcom, there was more time for John Sullivan's great lines, and more space for things to unfold. Jason doubted that without the extra length, the romances between Del and Raquel and Rodney and Cassandra would never have developed, and he was glad to have Tessa Peake-Jones and Gwyneth Strong in the cast because they knew what they were doing and fit right in.

[a barman comes along and lifts up the section that Del was leaning against to get through but he doesn't put it back down again, leaving a gap. This happens behind Del's back and he doesn't notice at all]
Derek 'Del Boy' Trotter: Alright. Play it nice and cool, son. Nice and cool, you know what I mean...

'Play it nice and cool son...'
8 July 2017 | by craigcushingSee all my reviews

Arugably the best episode out of all the series and its not just for the notorious bar scene. The opening scene with Del, Albert, and Rodney in the flat is what makes this show so special. Flawless acting and semmingly undeited for a good 10 min dialogue, Delboy doscussing the troubles bringing Rodney up and vice versa.
