Trotters' Independent Trading Company has been forced off the market, with the continuing downpour keeping most of Peckham indoors. While drowning their sorrows in The Nag's Head, Alex the travel agent mentions that business is slow and he can't give holidays away at the moment. As a promotional gimmick, Del suggests offering an 80% discount on a holiday to the next customer in the shop - and who happens to walk by, but Derek Trotter. Having sold sun-hats in the rain, Rodders has managed to earn some travel cash, but he is dismayed to learn that the 80% discount only extends to a grotty hotel in Benidorm. And despite not being included in the bargain, the brothers reluctantly pay for Grandad to join them on their escape to the sun. During the whole holiday, Del and Rodney check out the local talent, while Grandad cramps their style. Especially when they bring two girls back to their apartment, only for the old man to scare them off with his dentures. Things get a bit more serious when...
Did You Know?
Grandad refers to his mate 'Nobby Clark' when he's telling Del and Rodney about his mate who did the gun running with him in the War. Kenneth MacDonald
's (who played Mike the landlord) character in It Ain't Half Hot Mum
(1974) was a gunner named 'Nobby Clark'. See more
They'll just deport him again.
Just deport him? You're joking of course! They've just held the World Cup here, haven't they? They've got half of Manchester and Glasgow to get rid of first! By the time we get him back he'll be eating paella and calling us Gringo's!
