Pauline moves out of the Trotter flat but also phones Tim the Talking Clock in America and leaves the phone off the hook. Del interrupts Rodney's romantic evening with his girlfriend to tell him that he has got a job as a night watchman for buses. The following morning, Del confesses that the bus company offered to give him a double-decker bus in exchange for Rodney becoming a night watchman.
Del Boy uses the bus to set up a tour company taking tourists around London, but on the day, nobody turns up. On the bus, Del reveals that he does not know any facts about London and would therefore tell the tourists lots of false information. Grandad wins a bet against Del when nobody turns up by the end of the day, but his celebrations are short-lived, because Del finds all the leaflets that Grandad chucked down the rubbish chute.
When Rodney points out that the three tons of lead are in fact a DIY fallout shelterDel refuses to believe him until he reads the accompanying brochure.
With the threat of nuclear holocaust preying on Rodney's nerves, he asks Del what he would do if he heard the four-minute warning. Without an answer, Del considers putting a survival plan into action that means reaching Grandad's allotment in time to take shelter.
It is during a practice run for the Trotter counter-strike survival plan that they get stopped for speeding by the police - they never find out whether they would make it in time so decide to move the lead somewhere else.
It is Christmas and Del and Rodney are waiting for Grandad's traditional poisoned Christmas dinner to arrive at the table. Unfortunately, Rodney is unable to attract any women, and when he does finally make some progress, he is beaten by two other men, much to his and Del's horror.
First appearance of Roy Heather as Sid. The Trotters and Trigger attend Trigger's grandmother's Alice funeral. When they visit her old house, Trigger tells Del and Rodney that while his grandfather Arthur was away fighting in the war, Alice was seeing another man, who was obviously Grandad. Back at the flat, Del examines two antique urns that Alice owned, but discovers that one of them contains Arthur's ashes. Grandad fears that Arthur is trying to communicate with him. With Trigger away on holiday, Del Boy and Rodney attempt to get rid of the ashes.
London Theatre behind the scenes: Only Fools and Horses musical interview with the cast
They remember that Arthur used to be a member of the local bowling club, but have no luck scattering the ashes on the bowling green. They then try to dump the ashes in the Thames but are spotted by a police boat.
The brothers nearly give up, but then a road-sweeping lorry passes by and sucks up Arthur's ashes. Del and Rodney think it is ironic, because Arthur used to be a road-sweeper, so for him this would be like a "Viking burial". Back at Nelson Mandela House, Del Boy receives a call from Trigger, who reveals that his gran was married twice, a fact that Grandad had failed to point out.
When Del looks in the other urn, he discovers that it does, of course, contain more ashes.
Del is getting into financial trouble - even his double-headed coin cannot help him win. When Boycie challenges him to a winner-takes-all poker game, Del is eager to host it in his flat in Nelson Mandela House. As the night progresses, Del's luck goes from bad to worse as he ends up owing Boycie all his money, the TIT van, Grandad's cash, jewellery and even a collection of loose change. But all is not lost, as Del finally turns the tables on Boycie in revenge for fixing all the previous card games in his favour.
Rodney falls for Irene Mackay - a woman twice his age - and Del Boy is not happy about it. Not only is Irene a lot older than Rodney, but she is married to a criminal who is doing time in Parkhurst - and is about to be released. Concerned for his brother's welfare, Del convinces Irene to ditch Rodney, but when Rodney realises Del has been interfering with his personal life again, he goes loopy.
Soon afterwards, Tommy Mackay gets out of prison.
He soon finds out his wife has been cheating on him with a Trotter, and goes looking for revenge. When a bruised and battered Del returns to the pub, he finds out that Rodney has moved on to someone new. Trotters Independent Traders has got a job painting a Chinese takeaway but Del gives the job to Rodney and Grandad as he is busy.
The job is finished, with the Chinese restaurant having had a new lick of yellow paint.
Del returns home and greets Trigger, who reveals to Rodney that the paint he supplied Del with is dodgy and luminous. Fortunately, the restaurant's owner is delighted with the work but there is an issue: Del used the paint to paint his mother's grave so now it looks radioactive! Del decides to keep quiet and flees the scene. Trotters Independent Trading has been forced off the market, with the continuing downpour keeping most of Peckham indoors.
While the Trotters are drowning their sorrows in The Nag's Head, Alex the travel agent mentions that business is slow and he cannot give holidays away at the moment. Having sold sunhats in the rain, Rodney has managed to earn some travel cash. During the whole holiday, Del and Rodney attempt to pursue women, with Del at one point pretending to be French. Things get a bit more serious when Grandad is arrested. He is worried that the arrest is for an old incident during the Spanish Civil War 50 years earlier, but it turns out that he was arrested for jaywalking and is released without charge.
Returning from an auctionthe Trotters stop to help a woman whose car appears to have broken down. Having towed the Lady to her stately home, Del overhears that Lord Ridgemere is having trouble with the firm he's hired to clean their chandeliers. Rodney and Del are up ladders, holding an old sheet to stop a cut-glass chandelier crashing to the floor when Grandad unscrews it.
But Grandad actually unscrews the second chandelier, which falls and smashes on the floor. There he meets Heather, who seems to be one friend short of company. Del Boy, ever the gentleman, entertains her and sees her home safely. At her flat he discovers that she has a young son, by a husband who seems to have joined a very long queue at the Job Centre 18 months previously and not come back. In no time at all, their romance blossoms and all is running so smoothly that Del decides to propose.
However, when he takes her for a candlelit curryshe refuses his offer of marriage. Her husband has returned, employed as a department store Santaand she wants to give it another go, leaving Del Boy without an angel for Christmas. Lugging the shopping up those 12 flights of stairs is proving too much for Grandad, and the doctor recommends a new council bungalow for the Trotter dynasty.
Rodney is appointed the new chairman of the housing committee. Unknown to Rodney Del and Grandad have hatched up the scheme between them to unfairly get a bungalow.
Rodney pays the price again for Del's scheming and has to resign as chairman. Rodney, tired of his "two GCEs" getting him little more than a crummy job as a lookout, decides to go it alone and leave Peckham's own multinational conglomerate - Trotters Independent Trading. By the end of the week he is already cornered the market in broken lawnmower engines and with Mickey Pierce as his financial director, the sky's the limit!
The Trotters are off to Boycie's cottage in Cornwall for the weekend to do some illegal salmon fishing.
At the gate, a policeman tells the Trotters that an escaped axe-murderer is on the run and is believed to be lurking in the area around Boycie's cottage.
After a few hours in the cottage, Del believes that he has knocked out the axe-murderer but when Rodney and Grandad take him to the police station, the police tell them that it is actually the gamekeeper. Back at the cottage, Del is with the real axe-murderer, who is posing as the hospital's chief of security. As a police helicopter flies over, Del plays an imaginary game of snooker with the criminal. Del Boy's into art dealing in a big way.
Especially as it involves Miranda, the glamorous "posh tart". Is she really being wooed by his tequila sunsets or are her motives rather more mercenary? A ripple of panic runs through The Nag's Head. Del's old school enemy Slater is back in town hell-bent on revenge and brandishing his police badge whilst on the trail of a stolen microwave. Watch out! The Peckham Pouncer's about! Alias Rodney Trotter. Surely not. But try telling that to Rodney, London's most wanted sex offender.
Now what was the name of that drunk woman in the street? Reg Trotter, absentee father to Del and Rodney, unexpectedly arrives to sponge Christmas with his boys. Reg explains that he has been living in Newcastle and was diagnosed with a hereditary blood disorder.
Scared for their well-being, he decided to tell his two sons. However, several tests later, Reg is given the all clear but it seems Del Boy and Rodney have different blood types.
It would seem the wayward father has some explaining to do.
Reg explains that he frequently argued with their mother before they split. She had several dalliances with other men, and Del is the mystery child. Fortunately a visit to the family doctor gives Del the news to put the smile back on his face. Derek and Rodney stop a young boy, Jason, from running into the road, and strike up a friendship with the lad.
It is not long before Del discovers that Jason's mother, June, is an old flame whom he last saw around nineteen years ago.
Del and June rekindle their romance, Rodney is dating a lovely girl from the newsagent called Debby - a fact that is seriously curtailing his habit of buying porn magazines.
It soon transpires that Debby is June's daughter, and it is almost her 19th birthday. Del puts two and two together, and decide that Debby may well be his daughter. It gets worse when Rodney realises that he has fallen for a girl who could be his niece. Everything comes to a head when Del finally confronts June to find out whether Debby is his daughter or not.
It turns out that Debby was actually fathered by his friend Albie Littlewood, who died while crossing the train tracks while he was seeing June behind Del's back. To make things worse, the deep-fat fryer they sold to Mike, landlord of The Nag's Head, is on the blink and the tension brings Del and Rodney to boiling point. But throughout all this trouble, Uncle Albert, who Rodney blames for their bad luck, keeps telling them that something will turn up. As Albert leaves the pub, he deliberately falls through an open cellar door, and the Trotters' quickly come up with a way to get some cash - by suing the pub for damages.
Albert's accident claim finally makes it to court, but to the shock of Del and Rodney, it appears that their Uncle has already sought 15 identical damages claims going back to Their case gets chucked out of court, and Albert admits he was using some of the tricks he learnt in parachute training to try to help Del and Rodney pay for Grandad's headstone.
Rodney has joined a band, and Del immediately capitalises on this by booking them into The Shamrock Club to play for the St Patrick's night festivities. Taking his place as the band's manager, Del winces his way through their rehearsals, and when the Shamrock gig results in a fight, the band are forced to leg it, leaving the instruments behind them. When Rodney finds out the musical equipment has vanished, he contacts the police. When Del sees Rodney with the constable, he quickly distracts the officer and pulls Rodney aside.
It turns out that Del had the instruments on sale or return, and he would have taken them back because the gig was done. Rodney's dreams of showbiz fame have been shattered, but he goes ballistic when he sees his group performing their old hit single on Top of the Pops and realises that without Del's interference he might have made it to number one. Once again Del ruins Rodney's chance for success due to his greed. Whilst out on a walk, Rodney notices that the dog is a bit sluggish, and they decide to take it to the vet.
Del and Rodney think that the dog may have eaten some reheated pork leftovers for breakfast, and the vet quickly informs them that Duke has probably caught Salmonella. It is only when they get home that they realise Albert has eaten the other half of the pork, and they quickly rush him to hospital. When Albert gets discharged from hospital a few days later, with a clean bill of health, Del Boy discovers that Rodney has been giving Albert's sleeping pills to Duke, and the dog's vitamin supplements to Albert.
Rodney is taking some stick from the lads down the pub about his 'imaginary' girlfriend, and Mickey Pearce bets him fifty that he will not bring a girl to the Saturday night bash in The Nag's Head. When Rodney admits to Del that he doesn't have a date for Saturday night, his big brother sets about trying to get him a date.
On the Friday night, the two brothers head out clubbing, and despite trying almost every club in London, they end up in a seedy little bar in search of a date for Rodney.
As luck would have it, Del Boy spots Yvonne, an old flame who he knows is not too picky who she goes out with, and he offers to pay her part of the winnings from Rodney's bet if she'll escort his little brother the following night. Apparently, the date went well, until halfway through the evening when Yvonne takes centre stage in the pub and begins her act as a stripper - in front of all of Rodney's mates.
The trouble starts when Del agrees to provide painter and decorator Brendan O'Shaughnessy with enough louvred doors to refit an entire housing estate in Nunhead. As usual, a solution turns up in the form of Denzil's redundancy money, which Del somehow cons him out of, only to be told by O'Shaughnessy that the doors he is bought are not needed. And to make things worse, the doors turn out to be stolen.
It's not long before Denzil and his five brothers come looking for their money, so with nowhere else to go, the Trotters visit their mother's grave - a favourite refuge for Del in times of trouble.
After chasing the butterfly around the churchyard, the park and the boating lake, Rodney finally captures it, only to have it squashed when Del holds it out to show Denzil and gets high-fived.

Boycie and Abdul ask Del to smuggle diamonds from Amsterdam into the country. When Del learns that DCI Roy Slater is aware of the cases of diamond smuggling, but does not know who is involved, and realising that he wouldn't get the diamonds through airport security, Del gets Uncle Albert to take him and Rodney to Amsterdam from Hull in a hired boat.
The Trotters arrive at the location and collect the diamonds. Meanwhile, back at the police station, Slater deduces that Boycie and Del are involved in the smuggling and waits at the airport for the Trotters to arrive.
Del, Rodney and Albert arrive back a day late because Albert got lost. All seems to have gone well until Slater catches Boycie and the Trotters in the act. However, Slater lets them case go and is later arrested when the police work out that he has been working with the man in Amsterdam who keeps the diamonds until the couriers arrive.
Although Boycie used fake money to pay for the diamonds, he paid Del with real money. Unfortunately, Del thinks the money is fake and throws it out the window. It is closing time at The Nag's Head, and Mike the landlord is having problems clearing everyone out, particularly a young pregnant foreign girl who does not seem to speak Peckham English. Del and Rodney offer to help, and despite Del Boy's dodgy French, they work out that Anna is from Germany, and she has been chucked out on the street and was considering getting her child adopted.
They leave Rodney to take Anna to a hotel, but he ends up bringing her back to the flat. After fuming about Rodney bringing another 'waif and stray' home, Del Boy considers what can be done with Anna's unwanted baby - and the first thing he thinks of is how to exploit her and make money.
For year's Marlene and Boycie have been trying for a child, with no success, and now for three grand, Del is offering them the chance to have their very own baby boy. The stress is clearly getting to Anna, and she begins to go into labour.
Later on Del, Boycie and Marlene all gather round in the lounge waiting for Anna and Rodney to return from hospital. Feeling guilty about his criminal lifestyle, Del has a rare religious urge and heads to the confession booth of his local Catholic church to speak with Father O'Keith. And as Derek and Rodney's mother and grandad were both cared for there, the older Trotter takes the charitable cause to his heart.
After his confession, Del is about to put some money into the Collection box when Father O'Keith cries out that the statue of the Virgin Mary is weeping holy tears. Within a couple of seconds, Del has persuaded the priest that this miracle needs publicising - something that could go a long way towards raising funds for St Mary's renovations and lining Del's pockets.
