Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Corrected entry: If the first Jolly Boys' Outing was in 1960, why does Denzel have a 1970's perm and moustache in the photo?

Correction: Why not? Is it not possible that some people in the 60s had permed hair and/or moustaches? This may have been more popular in the 70s but surely not unique to the decade.

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Corrected entry: When Casandra sees the photo of the first jolly boy's outing, she very quickly recognises Grandad even though she never met him. Even if she'd seen a few old photos, she still couldn't have recognised a younger Grandad.

Correction: There is no reason why Cassandra should not have recognised Grandad, people's apperances don't change that much and also we don't know that Rodney hasen't shown other photos of Grandad to Cassandra. So it's not really a plot hole.

Sleepless in Peckham - S9-E3

Corrected entry: Back in 1982, when the episode "The Yellow Peril" was screened, Del Boy said that the fibreglass grave of his mum had been standing for 17 years, which would mean she died in 1965. However in the final ever episode "Sleepless in Peckham" it says on the grave that she died in 1964. This doesn't make sense as he had already said she hadn't gone in the grave till the year later.

David Hutchinson

Correction: Would it have been better if he had said 'Seventeen years, eight months, two days, eight hours and forty-four minutes'? He is making an approximation, and may be a few months out either way. There is no mistake here.

Mike: Well?
Trigger: Well what?
Mike: What are they naming the baby?
Trigger: If it's a girl, they're calling her Sigourney, after an actress. And if it's a boy, they're calling him Rodney, after Dave.



At the very beginning of the episode, Leonard Pearce is waiting for the cue for his character to start looking for his teeth. He's standing in the living room, between his room and Del and Rodney's room.



Only Fools and Horses was recently voted Britain's Best Sitcom, beating BlackAdder and the Vicar of Dibley into second and third place respectively.
