Line(s) of the Day #OnlyFoolsandHorses

A losing Streak only fools and horses

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.

      • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. Brilliant quote!

    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” 😀 😀
