Having seen and been strongly influenced by the film Wall Street, especially its lead character, the ruthless corporate high-flyer Gordon Gekko, Del Boy has decided to adopt a new "yuppy" image, donning a striped shirt and red braces, and carrying a filofax and a silver briefcase. Rodney in turn has joined an evening computer class in an attempt to earn a diploma and finally get a proper job. There he meets and is attracted to Cassandra Parry. He later meets her again at a nightclub, where she offers to give him a lift home. She first drives to her house and Rodney feels upstaged by Cassandra's luxurious lifestyle. Embarrassed at the thought of Cassandra seeing their council flat in Nelson Mandela House, Rodney instead leads her to The King's Avenue, an expensive and very up-market road, implying that he lives there and has to stand in the driveway, being seen by the homeowners. Despite soon finding out that he actually doesn't Cassandra still phones and agrees to meet Rodney again.

"Falling Through the Bar" Scene"[edit]

The episode features a now-famous British comedy scene;[1] Del, leaning against a bar flap in a local bistro, moves away from it and then leans back again, unaware that the bartender has just lifted it up, and he promptly falls straight down, and Trigger does a double-take when he looks around and Del has "disappeared". On 21 December 2006, this scene was nominated in the UKTV Gold Top 40 Greatest Only Fools Moments, and subsequently voted the most popular scene of the entire programme.[2] It was also named 7th Greatest Television Moment of all time in a 1999 Channel 4 poll, beating the likes of JFK's assassination, the Queen's coronation and Winston Churchill's funeral.[3] In 2008, Empire placed Only Fools and Horses 42nd their list of "The 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time" and cited "Yuppy Love" as the show's best episode.[4]

Personally I think the series peaked with this series and has some of the best episodes Chain Gang, Danger UXB and Little problems and the Trotters where at the top of their game.

Chain Gang for example is up their with the best episodes of Minder in writing performance. Also Little problems with Rodney marrying Cassandra could have easily been a fitting end to the series.

With this series inbetween Dates christmas 1988 and Jolly Boys outing christmas 1989 which I still think is the best episode of the entire series. This was the best year for the Trotters and from then on the series declined slightly in comic value until the 96 special episodes which where on a par with this series and as everyone agrees should have really finished the adventures of the Trotters.

The best TV series so far by a long way! All these american drama series & Comedies (a certain Geek series) make me feel ill! They are absolutely awful, just full of cheap laughs that don't make you laugh, i would rather sit there and read a blank book!

This was the start of the 50 minute episode which got to the tell the storylines better which makes them overall more funny. The romantic link Of rodders and Cassandra begins and the competition winner episode is a classic.

I only bought episode 2, Danger UXD. My wife finds this her favourite one. She has been very ill of late and at last she`s had a good belly laugh, and you know what they say about laughter and medicine.

My 4 1/2 year old likes Del Boy...the bit where he falls through the bar "Play it cool, son, nice and cool" especially! Nice one!
