    There does not to be any line missing when Rodney says please to meet you, it must of been cut before broadcast. There are a few other lines in other episodes which are in the script but were never broadcast.

      Yes, a good example is to read the final part of the ‘a royal flush’ script on this website, there are even jokes in it that are used in later episodes so obviously it must have been in the original script but never filmed.

    looks like this wasnt aired just in 1983. in the only fools and horses britains best sitcom in 2004 skip to 16:10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LYj7yNrXLk

    Yes, there is another small cut to this episode, when Rodney realises it’s his father at the door – he says ‘please to meet you’ – for some reason this line is cut.

    I always found it rather strange why that was cut – because the line had no swearing or mention of someone’s skin colour, or anything else that could offend.

    just watched the dvd today and realised that 3 lines are missing
    Del : he walked out on his own father
    Del: in all that time he didnt know whether grandad was alive or dead
    Rodney: well were never sure are we
    Rodney: alright del he left(UNCUT)>>>but hes back now
    Del: he walked out on his own father
    Rodney: but hes back now

    I wish so too, they’ve even edited out ‘paki shop’ its ridiculous, that was common parlance when the episodes were written, in the good old days prior to ‘political correctness’

      i saw an OF AH the other night and Del said Paki Shop
      Where the boy let down the tyres on a 3 wheel van
      I am white and i flinched when i heard it

    • gerry says:

      i saw an OFAH the other night the one with the boy who let
      down the tyres on a 3 wheel van . Del said paki shop you just cant talk like that nowdays, i flinched when he said it

    • KC says:

      Totally agree,

      I know the line was used by Del in the Russians Are Coming, has the term been edited out of any other episodes?

      • Jumbo Mills says:

        No, in another episode with Albert, Rodney is arguing with Del, which Rodders ends it by saying ‘You won’t give me any credit will ya?’ Albert chips in with ‘and neither will that Paki’! I think it’s from Hole in one.

  6. Del says:

    wait a minute you forgot something in the page ‘more ofah cuts’ you said that there was a line missing when reg is at the door i think rodney nice to meet you or something

    I dream the day that somebody uploads every episode that was recorded from the original transmission.
