Healthy Competition
Rodney is taking stock of his life, and at the age of 24 he is disappointed to find he has only risen to become Del's look-out while they're on the make with dodgy goods.

Friday the 14th
The Trotters take a trip down to Cornwall to make use of Boycie's country cottage for a spot of salmon poaching. The fishing trip should be a nice little earner with £10 a salmon being paid for by Mario's fish restaurant. Del thinks that Rodney, Grandad and he will catch the fish and split the profits 50-50 with Boycie for providing the accommodation - they just didn't bank on an escapee from the mental institute.
