Boycie and Abdul pitch a diamond scam to Del Boy, who immediately turns them down. That is until they offer him a £15,000 cut of the estimated £150,000 sale of the stone on the UK market. Del finds himself designated as the courier between Holland and Britain. No sooner has Del enlisted a reluctant Rodders, he hears his old foil Chief Inspector Slater is eyeing Boycie and Abdul as drug dealers. Del decides to hide undetected in the back of Denzil's van. Denzil then getting in and driving them to Hull (pursued by Rodney) was not part of the plan. Thinking quickly, they hire a boat, and let Uncle Albert guide them to Amsterdam. Overcoming counterfeit cash, Albert's amnesia, it's only the arrival of Slater that scuppers them. Despite this, it's Del who has the last laugh. Written by

After filming a cold night shoot, David Jason
and Nicholas Lyndhurst
followed Ray Butt
, who was wrapped in an anorak the size of a duvet, the hood which made him look from behind like a gnome in a horror film. As he walked, Jason and Lyndhurst heard a chinking sound. They caught up to him, and he showed them his pockets, crammed full of miniatures of gin and tonic; they were his supplies for the night, as well as his favorite drink. It was Jason's most vivid memory of that episode. See more
When Rodders opens the back of the lorry looking for Del in the background on the docks there are some cars parked, the next shot shows Delboy getting up from the blankets and staggering towards Rodders, the next shot shows Rodney looking into the trailer and the parked cars behind him are gone and finally as we see Del exit the lorry trailer the cars are back again.

We got lost in the middle of the North Sea. Luckily we spotted the Zeebrugge to Hull ferry and we followed it.
And that's how you got to Hull?
No. that's how we got to Zeebrugge. It was going the wrong bloody way.
