After seeing the film 'Wall Street' Del fancies himself as Peckham's answer to Gordon Gecko and changes his image. He even -temporarily - gives up the Nag's Head for a trendy wine bar where he is just a little too casual for his own good. Rodney goes on a computer course and meets a nice girl called Cassandra. When she offers him a lift home he is ashamed to tell her where he lives and gets her to drop him off in a suburban avenue. She eventually rumbles him but agrees to go on a date anyway.

Did You Know?


This episode is best remembered for Del Boy falling through an open bar flap. The scene derived from John Sullivan watching a man do the exact same thing in a wine bar, except he grabbed onto the fixed part of the bar so he didn't fall right over. Sullivan thought it funny for the man's body language, trying to recover his cool. Sullivan wanted a slip, stumble and a tree like fall; Jason thought Del should go all the way over - start to go sideways, and than go over without looking in the direction of the fall, which David Jason thought was the key to the scene. There was a hidden crash mat, but it was a hard shot to get because it was hard not to look where Jason was falling; Jason had done a number of falls in the theatre so that came in handy. Just as funny was Trigger's baffled reaction to Del's sudden disappearance. Jason gets people asking him about that fall all the time, and some never like to talk about anything else, but he's happy to be remembered for something so iconic. See more »


After Del Boy has fallen through the bar in the bistro, during the long shot when he starts to leave, a bit of a blue crash mat is visible where the fall took place. See more »
