Boycie: (Through gritted teeth) “Well done, Del. Nicely played. Where did you get those bloody Aces from?”
Del: “Same place you got them Kings. I knew you was cheating, Boycie.”
Boycie: “Oh yeah? How?”
Del: “‘Cos that wasn’t the hand that I dealt you.”
John Challis and David Jason in the much-loved British sitcom Only Fools and Horses (1981 – 2003, 2014). Set in East End Peckham, it tells of a poorly educated but hugely entrepreneurial market trader who dreams of getting rich. You can see other examples of the show’s humour here and here, with some memorable quotes on poker here.
Classic episode! 🙂
What other ones do you like? Have you seen one called Yellow Peril?
I’ve seen the whole series. I like the early seasons the best (before the lads get married). The Yellow Peril has my sides hurting, particularly the bit where they all have to wear sunglasses in the kitchen because the walls are bright! Then they paint their mum’s grave with it. I also love the one with Trigger’s granddads ashes. Great series.
Energy saving paint haha. I’ve quoted one of the jokes from that episode in the text. The episode came to him when there was a group of robbers who stole some paint, but one of the jars leaked so the police just had to follow the paint. The butterfly episode cracks me up too, as does the one with the chandelier.
The butterfly one is so funny. Love the bit where they’re in the graveyard and Del’s planning out Rodney’s life and death. So many funny episodes.
Yeah, I quoted that watch joke. It just sums up their relationship perfectly 🙂
No honour among thieves 😉
Fantastic show 😃 definitely one of my favorites 😍😍
Always nice to meet a fellow fan. Any scene make you laugh more than any other?
My favorite episode is the one where Del and Rodney dress up as Batman and Robin 🤣 Also the one in which they start the business of cleaning chandeliers 😂 Each episode has its own laughs though.
Both great episodes. The butterfly one, locked in the supermarket and the yellow paints are among my faves too.
Simply perfection. Could watch the re-runs over and over and the quality of the writing never fades.
It really is timeless. You might like this. It’s from my favourite episode. Probably the longest joke I’ve quoted on here, but i love the way it builds.
When Mr O and I first started dating he made me watch loads of old British comedy including Only Fools and Horses. I find it mildly amusing but I sort of think you have to be British to really appreciate it.
It’s delightfully British. They’ve tried remaking it in other countries but with nowhere near the sane success. Does Mr O used the catchphrases? Gordon Bennett, cushti, lovely jubbly etc ha.
Hahaha! Not really. But he does sometimes shout bonnet de douche or say mange tout, mon frere.
This time next year you’ll be millionaires 😉
OFAH is my all time favourite sitcom 🙂
One of my favourite quotes that I can think of off the top of my head is when Del follows Rodney to a mansion where Rodney’s girlfriend lives with her family. Del gets involved in the clay pigeon shooting, and someone offers him ear-defenders..
“Would you like these sir?”
“Nah, I can’t listen to music while I’m shooting” 😀 😀
Ha! Do you remember when Rodney applies for the job he just resigned from, not realising it’s the same one?
Hahaha yes! And Del is putting on a voice while on the phone. Luvly jubbly!
They should sell Trigger’s broom on Ebay. Even if they replaced all the parts it would still be ok 😉
What was is it, 17 heads and 24 handles or something? 😀
It goes up the more times I tell it haha
Funny. I watched a few of these with my friend Colin. I enjoyed the ones I saw.
It’s a very British sense of humour. Ran for decades too.
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂Oh my gosh, another series I’ve watched waaaaaay too many times!
I’ve quoted it twice already but this post was definitely most popular. Is the chandelier moment your favourite scene?
Del boy through the bar . Hands down!
