Only Fools And Horses

Series six


Series six is my personal favorite series of only fools and horses - in this series we see del become a Yuppy after watching the movie wall street, Rodney meets cassandra, and gets married and the episodes get longer - also there is more continuity between the episodes and for the first time, we see the series moving forward.

Yuppy Love:
In this episodes Del decides to become a Yuppy, a high powered businessman, for whom the working day never ends, with a new motto, "Breakfast is for wimps" - towards the end of the series we see Del become ill because of this lifestyle change.

Meanwhile we see Rodney attending evening classes in computing which is where he meets Cassandra, Yuppy Love is also the episode where we see Dels classic bar fall (see below).

Danger Uxd:

Del manages to get his hands on some very hooky dolls when he takes them of Denzils hands thinking they are Barbie or Cindy Dolls - but when he opens them, they turn out being erotic Dolls aimed at a more mature market, The dolls were also all over the news with police were looking for them because they filled with the wrong gas which made them highly flammable.

Due to the dolls being filled with the wrong gas - when Rodney turned the heating up in the flat, something unexpected happened (see below)
Chain Gang:
Del strikes up a cushty deal with a retired jewellery dealer called Arnie. When a case of 18-carat gold chains is offered to him, Del agrees buy them to the tune of £12,500.Despite Rodney's objections, Derek ropes Mike, Boycie, Trigger,Albert and… Rodney into a consortium in which no-one can lose.

A spanner is thrown into the works when Arnie collapses at a business lunch, seemingly struck by a heart-attack. The ambulance whisks him away, with both the jewellery and twelve-and-a-half grand still on his person.Despite being dead, Rodney spots Arnie collapsing and being whisked away from another restaurant.They've been had, but no-one pulls a fast one quicker than the Trotters and revenge is the only dish on the menu at Arnie's next meal.


The unlucky winner is:

Del has entered every competition on the market, trying to win as many freebies as possible.Rodney has unknowingly been entered for an art competition, and won it. It's only when he arrives at the 5 star hotel in Mallorca that he learns he was a schoolboy when he composed the winning painting, and has won the under-15 category.

While Del and Cassie enjoy playing mum and dad, Rodders has to endure the Fun Bus, chaotic children, and becoming a lifelong member of The Groovy Gang.He has the last laugh, however, as Del's tinkering with his passport makes them ineligible to claim Rodney's winning ticket on the Spanish lottery.
Sickness and wealth:

Del is having stomach pains. It could be his new fast-paced Yuppy lifestyle, or it could the eviction notice demanding three months worth of unpaid rent up front.

TITCO hasn't been successful and the pressure's on to raise the cash.The solution presents itself in the shape of Uncle Albert's lady-friend Elsie Partridge, a medium who lives off payments for her amazing predictions.Del thinks it's a load of mumbo-jumbo, but sets up a seance room in The Nags Head. Albert, worried for Del's health tells Elsie to say his Mum has contacted her asking him to go the doctor.

When Marlene falls pregnant, just as Elsie foresaw, Del takes heed and is prescribed with irritable bowl syndrome. When he gets home Rodney has another shock for him: He and Cassie are engaged.
Little Problems:

Series six ended with the wedding of Rodney and cassandra - The driscoll brothers are after Del over some very early model - Mobile Phones, The driscolls want £2000 but Del has already promised The £2000 to rodney as a wedding present for a deposit on his Flat - in the end Del Takes a beating and rodney gets his deposit, similar to the episode "no greater Love" - Del showed real brotherly Love to Rodney.

A funny moment is at the end of the episode when Rodney comes home to wrong house after getting married - and not remembering he now lives with cassandra.
