    Re:
    In Yuppy Love, the timings of things are all wrong. How on earth can Rodney go to evening class, then to theYuppy Bar, then to the club where he meets Cassandra, then walk home in the time space? When he gets home Del says ‘Cassandra left her number and said to ring her before 12 o’clock’. There is no way all that could have taken place. Also, Del says that Mickey Pearce came into the Riverside Club at last Knockins’, which is surely after 12 o’clock, and in the Yuppy Bar Trig says to Del ‘You better chat those birds up soon it’s nearly closing time’. So the Yuppy Bar must close at 10.30, they race over to the riverside before it closes at 11.30 and home at least 10 minutes before 12! And Del has been at home for 10 minutes before Rodney comes in!!!Sorry if that’s a bit confusing, but there’s definitely flaws somewhere.

    Let me give you a rough timeline of events:

    18:00 – Evening class

    20:00 – Yuppy bar (Rodney doesn’t stay long)

    20:30 – Rodney back at flat before leaving for club

    21.00 – Rodney/Jevon/Mickey at Club

    22:30 – Del goes home (bar is probably shut which is what Trig means by closing time)

    22:40 – Del goes to Riverside

    23.00 – Cass drops off Emma / Mickey walks to DBTR

    23:10 – Mickey arrives at DBTR

    23.15 – Cass takes Rodney ‘home’

    23:40 – Del back home

    23:45 – Cassandra calls the flat and speaks to Albert

    00:00 – Rodney home

      *Correction*

      22:30 – Del goes home (bar is probably shut which is what Trig means by closing time)

      Was meant to say Del goes to DBTR (not home)

      Nice time reference you got there, i still CAN NOT find the real location of the street that was named Kings Avenue in OFAH cause the real kings Avenue is a wrong street doesn’t match up so it would be much appreciated if you could give some pointers on funding the right one ? Thank you very much wesh you all the best

    When I click on the ‘script will be to download from here’ link for this episode the script for ‘Yesterday never comes’ comes up.
    Does anyone know where the script for this episode is?

    • Gerry says:

      hello Rich the script for “Yuppy Love” is at http://www.geocities.ws
      episode 41

      • Gerry says:

        just type all that in google.
        three great episodes last night, yuppy love , danger uxd
        and chain gang-3 john sullivan masterpieces

        just annoying that people try and pick holes in yuppy love
        about the timing, the coat colours – etc -just leave the man alone -Yuppy love where she drives him to that posh road is so unique and as for the fall through the bar and triggers face-easily one of my favourite ever episodes

  3. Tom says:

    Can anyone, please know of the 1930’s sounding song playing in the background as Del Boy walks in to the yuppy wine bar?

    I love it, obviously. Only because of this episode of course.

    Cheers!

      Al Bowlly & Ray Noble – Makin’ Wickey Wackey in Waikiki..

      • Griff says:

        That is amazing!! How on earth did you find this out?? It would hardly be picked up by Shazam!

        Well played son.

        • Harry1994 says:

          Haha cheers mate, full of useless knowledge me.. especially when it comes to Only Fools.

          • Griff says:

            I love this song being played when Del walks down the steps, into the wine bar. Gives me a buzzing feeling. Plus the scene filmed outside where Rodney and Casandra first meet is filmed down the road from me in Bristol city centre.

          • Griff says:

            Got a new request, Harry.

            What’s the name of the song being ‘sung’ in Eddie Chambers’ nightclub in Margate?

            And what about the song being played in the same episode where Steven and co are dining at Rodney and Cassandra’s?

          • Mr Rearguard says:

            Wasn’t it ‘Just the way you are’ by Billy Joel?

          • Mr Rearguard says:

            I couldn’t hear the song properly because that ruddy Stephen wouldn’t wrap up for five minutes going on about Africa and rotten bananas.

  4. Gordon Davie says:

    In ‘Yuppie Love’ how did Cassandra know who Rodney was before he introduced himself? Presumably, when she read the name in the coat, she went round asking people if they knew him, until she found somebody who could point him out.

  5. Griff says:

    For me, series 6 is the greatest series OFAH produced.

    This episode and Danger UXD set the benchmark for overall hilarity. Absolutely sensational comedy.

  6. Brandon says:

    Couldn’t catch it yesterday. Definitely will today though, Chain Gang is on, I LOVE THAT EPISODE!

  7. Brandon says:

    Might have to tune in tomorrow, are the cuts noticeable and will it bug me? xD

    • Rob M says:

      The 1 major cut is when Rodney, Mickey and Jevon are in the club chatting.

      the scene is cut due to music rights, the track is called ‘the spell’ by funkyworm.

      it’s cut on DVD/Video releases – but I’m not sure if GOLD still show that missing scene on sky digital?

      • Lee says:

        Hi rob, do you have this missing scene? unfortunity GOLD don’t show it in full anymore

        • Rob M says:

          Hi Lee, I used to have it on tape mate, but I sadly recorded over it – which I bitterly regret.

          so GOLD no longer air that scene anymore? that’s really unfortunate, as that was the only place you could see that scene.

          well I guess the best we can hope for now, is if somebody uploads it on youtube at some point.

          • Lee says:

            Unfortunately not no, i think they stopped showing the uncut version around 2011 when the episodes were remastered.

            I have contacted zane, the administrator of this site, he was the one to upload the missing scene to YouTube some years ago but sadly it has been blocked due to copyright.

            I have asked him whether he could send me the clip,or re-upload it but sadly he hasn’t got back to me. Yuppy Love and The Miracle of Peckham are the only cuts i am missing!

  9. Jess says:

    ‘love goes up and down’ by Errol Brown or ‘Enchanted Lady’ by the passadenas

    what is the song being played in the bar Del enters, before the scene with the famous fall. song sounds old, as if played from an old vinyl recording. cannot really make out all the words, except for Honolulu :)

  12. Philip says:

    I’ve seen it so many times, but when I watched Del falling last night in this episode, I laughed my ass off. It’s got to be one of the greatest ever television moments. Trigg’s face is comical. But Del when he gets up is just the best..
