Trivia

Following Fatal Extraction, many assumed that was the end of Only Fools and Horses.... (1981) because of a three-year gap until the next episode, but John Sullivan was keen on tying up the loose ends by making the Trotters millionaires. See more »

Quotes

Uncle Albert: It doesn't usually take us this long to finish.
Del Boy: Yes, but that is because we are not golloping down a Big Mac and chips. We're taking our time. We're savouring the food and ambience. People in there are conversing between each mouthful. It's sophisticated... No matter, I'll whack this in the microwave... Hey, wait a minute. Wait a minute. This isn't coffee. Smell it, it's bloody gravy.

The perfect end for our beloved Trotters
28 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After 16 years the Trotters quite literally walked off into the sunset having achieved their dream of becoming millionaires. And half the nation watched them go.

There are some brilliant moments in this episode, with John Sullivan displaying what a fantastic writer he was. We go from farce to pathos with such ease, and that's because Sullivan has made the characters so three dimensional.

People will debate until the end of time whether this should have been the final 'Only Fools' episode, as originally intended. Although there were some nice moments in the 00's trilogy that would follow later, for me this was the ending we hoped for the Trotters, and where we should have said goodbye.
