When Del arranges a job redecorating a Chinese Restaurant, he unwisely decides to employ the services of Rodney 'Leonardo' Trotter and buys some paint from Trigger. It's also nearing the anniversary of their mother's death, and in an attempt to save a bit of cash, Del swipes a bit of spare paint to spruce up her tombstone. While Del leaves Grandad and Rodney to paint the grease-filled Chinese kitchen with 'gold' paint, he heads off to decorate the tombstone. It's only when they've finished painting and get a call from the owner of the Chinese restaurant that they realise the paint was actually luminous yellow. Fine for the walls of a Chinese restaurant kitchen, and it certainly makes a gravestone stand out on a dark night.

[Rodney is furious after finding out the paint used on a decorating job was hooky
No, he said that.
Trigger said this was for painting signs used in tunnels. Well, how can you see a sign in a tunnel? It's dark, innit?
No, it's alright, this is luminous paint.
Exactly, Grandad, it's luminous paint and that means you can see in the - LUMINOUS?
