Rodney immediately points out the flaws in the logic behind the plot, and Del leaves him to it. It's closing time at The Nag's Head, and Mike the landlord is having problems clearing everyone out, particularly a young pregnant foreign girl who doesn't seem to speak Peckham English. But without telling Rodney, Del has already arranged for Mickey to head down to the town hall to film different couples' weddings at £50 a time — and he has also managed to con half the neighbourhood to pay £10 for the opportunity of becoming a movie extra. After everybody leaves, Grandad's brother Uncle Albert, another freeloading Trotter emerges from one of the bedrooms, after getting drunk. Managing to buy precious time, Del cons Boycie into paying for some dodgy video recorders and can cover the Trotter's debts.
It is during a practice run for the Trotter counter-strike survival plan that they get stopped for speeding by the police — they never find out whether they would make it in time so decide to move the lead somewhere else. Things get a bit more serious when Grandad is arrested. Del and Rodney head off to meet Lisa's friends for a spot of hang-gliding. Del explains to Grandad that while he and Rodney were out, there was a big fight at one of the pubs; consequently a young policewoman arrived to deal with the situation, who Rodney tried to date while she carried out the arrest. A few days later, Del and Rodney stop the same gang of muggers that they stopped on the way to the fancy dress party, resulting in Del Boy receiving a medal and £5,000 for his home improvement grant and Cassandra reveals that she is finally pregnant. After fuming about Rodney bringing another 'waif and stray' home, Del Boy considers what can be done with Anna's unwanted baby — and the first thing he thinks of is how to exploit her and make money. Del is even more horrified to learn that Slater is Raquel's husband.
On either version, a variation on Hazlehurst's original score can still be heard in the middle of the episode, as Del-Boy tries to sell the load of dodgy suitcases. Del and June rekindle their romance, Rodney is dating a lovely girl from the newsagent called Debby — a fact that is seriously curtailing his habit of buying porn magazines. She is less taken by the presence of Del and his peroxide blonde girlfriend, June Snell in a cringeworthy scene at the opera where they ruin the night for Rodney. He pays Del £600 to supply entertainment for an upcoming birthday party to be held at the Starlight Rooms. But Grandad actually unscrews the second chandelier, which falls and smashes on the floor. It ran for seven series and sixteen until 25 December 2003, when the final episode was broadcast. However, several tests later, Reg is given the all clear but it seems Del Boy and Rodney have different blood types.
Del is not pleased when Rodney gives away information that could get the Trotters arrested. They leave Rodney to take Anna to a hotel, but he ends up bringing her back to the flat. It is only when he arrives at the five-star holiday hotel that he learns that Del has been lying to him again, and that R0dney is supposedly a schoolboy who has won the under-15 category. The boys are able to track Arnie down after learning that Denzil and his two brothers have also been conned by Arnie. Unknown to Rodney Del and Grandad have hatched up the scheme between them to unfairly get a bungalow.
The stress is clearly getting to Anna, and she begins to go into labour. To try to make an impression, Del offers to mediate between the two men, especially as Mr Ram says he will pay £4,000 for the return of the statue to his family. As they say goodbye, he is caught waving to the unknown occupants of the posh house. By the end of the week he is already cornered the market in broken lawnmower engines and with Mickey Pierce as his financial director, the sky's the limit! Rodney is annoyed that Del is having a good time, when he should be upset. The Trotters leave Nelson Mandela House and give Pauline five days to pack her bags and get out.
After learning about a man called Myles who sells health foods and natural fertilizer and has become a millionaire in two and a half years, Del tricks him into believing that there is a natural spring at the allotment. Grandad, however, cramps their style, especially when they bring two girls back to their apartment, only for the old man to scare them off with his dentures. As a horrified walks into the hall, the Trotters make a swift exit. Fortunately a visit to the family doctor gives Del the news to put the smile back on his face. Albert's accident claim finally makes it to court, but to the shock of Del and Rodney, it appears that their Uncle has already sought 15 identical damages claims going back to 1944. Things seem to be going well, until Rodney clambers out of the Nag's head with Del's ex-fiancé Trudy to see her to a cab, just as Cassandra arrives on the scene leaping to the wrong conclusion. He is away his money with no sign of stopping, and is already £150 down.
After making sure Rodney and Albert have a place in Oz, Del Boy agrees to join Jumbo's firm, but things do not go as smoothly as that. He convinces his young brother that it will help him sell 50 video recorders he got from Ronnie Nelson at the Advanced Electronics Research and Development Centre. However, when Cassandra's flight lands in Manchester, he is furious. Rodney, meanwhile, has decided to complete a computing diploma course at the Adult Education Centre. The Trotters arrive at the location and collect the diamonds. As usual, a solution turns up in the form of Denzil's redundancy money, which Del somehow cons him out of, only to be told by O'Shaughnessy that the doors he is bought are not needed. This was a produced for the 1982 Christmas show , presented by , which also featured sketches from other comedies.
Rodney tricks Del into hang gliding Not wanting to lose face, Del reluctantly agrees to try it out, and after launching himself into the air, he disappears for over 12 hours. To make things worse, the deep-fat fryer they sold to Mike, landlord of The Nag's Head, is on the blink and the tension brings Del and Rodney to boiling point. When Boycie challenges him to a winner-takes-all poker game, Del is eager to host it in his flat in Nelson Mandela House. For year's Marlene and Boycie have been trying for a child, with no success, and now for three grand, Del is offering them the chance to have their very own baby boy. Taking his place as the band's manager, Del winces his way through their rehearsals, and when the Shamrock gig results in a fight, the band are forced to leg it, leaving the instruments behind them. All is well until Rodney lets Del Boy know that Anna's baby is a girl, and that Spencer's parents were actually West Indian! She gives birth to a boy in the early hours of the morning, which Del and Raquel name Damien.
As a police helicopter flies over, Del plays an imaginary game of snooker with the criminal. Cassandra and Rodney are finding their love life is a little flat, so they spice it up by role-playing their fantasies. Del is about to go around to her flat and ask to her stay but blows his chance when he rips the clothes off of a policewoman, believing she is a stripper booked by Uncle Albert in revenge for his birthday party. Within a couple of seconds, Del has persuaded the priest that this miracle needs publicising — something that could go a long way towards raising funds for St Mary's renovations and lining Del's pockets. It's a shame other Americans have not seen this. The job is finished, with the Chinese restaurant having had a new lick of yellow paint. Meanwhile, back at the police station, Slater deduces that Boycie and Del are involved in the smuggling and waits at the airport for the Trotters to arrive.
Del goes out to get some more 'Smash' and Rodney spends half-an-hour on the sunbed. It is there that he meets a young woman called Cassandra, who returns his raincoat to him when he mistakes hers for his Del having written Rodney's name inside the colour. A few days later, Uncle Albert's birthday party is held at the Nags Head but Del is horrified when one of the surprise strippers he booked turns out to be Raquel. Grandad wins a bet against Del when nobody turns up by the end of the day, but his celebrations are short-lived, because Del finds all the leaflets that Grandad chucked down the rubbish chute. Del initially declines the offer, but ultimately agrees in exchange for £15,000. Del and Rodney offer to help, and despite Del Boy's dodgy French, they work out that Anna is from Germany, and she has been chucked out on the street and was considering getting her child adopted. The Complete A-Z of Only Fools and Horses.
