Del becomes worried once more about Rodney's love life - and his latest dodgy 'bird'. This time though, Rodney has uncharacteristically fallen for Irene, a woman much older than him - and who just happens to be married. Worse still, her husband is a hardened-criminal who is soon to be released from prison. Del needs to think fast to 'rescue' Rodney - but will he get him out of harm's way in time?

(1989)" when Del, much to Rodney's ignorance, chooses to take a beating from the Driscoll Brothers after making a promise to him, having forgotten that the money he would use for his gift was also the money which he owed to them. See more
