They're on bbc1 and uk gold monday to friday. Just watching the episode where albert falls down the pub cellar and they sue the brewery .

As much as I like the office, peep show, curb your enthusiasm, It has to be the best tv comedy certainly the best sitcom. The gags are brilliant the storylines always have a good ending. It'll never age.

They are after censoring bits of it now. For example, there's a scene when Rodney says the packie short changed him, that's gone.

Hands down and by a distance my favourite television programme of all time.
I have every episode watched 20+ times but never bought a box set.
The way you get to see them on gold every couple of months is ideal. I cannot say enough about this programme

Thats pretty stupid as they take the piss out of everything. There's loads of paddy references in it but who'd be offended by that in a comedy. There'll always be some prick moaning about these things.

The programmes best years were without doubt in its earlier days but I love them all.
The storylines in the early days focusing on the boys ducking and diving were magic altogether. Really got a feel for market life in London and people trying to get by. Superb stuff.

My favourite episode is the card game where Del and Boycie are playing heads up....

Dodgy Del Boy and plonker Rodney flogged fake Rolexes and counterfeit jewellery - but when it came to one-liners, the Trotters dealt in nothing but gold – comedy gold.

The hapless brothers had millions of fans in stitches as they traded insults in Only Fools and Horses.

Writer John Sullivan died last year so there will be no return for the BBC sitcom that ran from 1981 to 1991, with Christmas episodes till 2003.

But now John’s son Dan has produced a book, bringing together the best quotes and most immortal lines.

So sit back and enjoy the wit and wisdom of Peckham’s finest – think of it as the “creme de la menthe” of the show’s one-liners.

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Wit and wisdom: The Trotters
BBC

1 Did you know, 500 years ago this was a green and peaceful area? The old Earl of Peckham had a castle where the Kwik-Fit exhaust centre now stands.

Flaxen-haired maidens used to dance round the village maypole of an evening. And then one fateful medieval day, the Trotter clan arrived in a stolen Zephyr.

Before you knew it, the flaxen-haired maiden was up the spout, the old Earl had been sold some hooky armour and someone nicked the maypole. BOYCIE

2 As Macbeth said to Hamlet in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, “We’ve been done up like a couple of kippers”. DEL

3 I’m a Ming fan myself. He made some wonderful stuff, that Ming. Pity he had to go and die when he did. DEL

4 One day they might make a musical about the Trotter family. Then, as a sequel, they could do Schindler’s List on ice. RODNEY

5 They're yuppies. They don’t speak proper English like what we do. DEL

6 God knows how you’ve got the courage to walk down dark alleys wearing all that gold. When they see you coming you must look like a mugger’s pension scheme. RODNEY to DEL

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Dodgy geezer: But Del Boy had some classic gags

7 Whatever the subject is, Mum had something to say about it on her deathbed. She must’ve spent her final few hours in this mortal realm doing nothing but rabbiting. RODNEY

8 Asking a Trotter if he knows anything about chandeliers is like asking Mr Kipling if he knows anything about cakes. DEL

9 I’ve always wanted to go to Benidorm. Where is it? GRANDAD

10 ’Ere Boyce. This car’s a GTI. If you rearrange the letters, you’ve got yourself a personalised number plate. RODNEY

11 Dear old grandad, bless him. He was about as useful as a pair of sunglasses on a bloke with one ear. DEL

12 What about the time he was in the Navy, eh? Every single ship he ever sailed on either got torpedoed or dive-bombed... two of ’em in peace time. RODNEY on ALBERT

13 I don't know what you’re worried about. I’ve been eating British beef all my life. TRIGGER

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Deadpan: Trigger delivered his share of one-liners too

14 Do you remember your cousin Audrey? I went to stay with her and her husband Kevin for a year. One day he sent me down to Sainsbury’s with a shopping list. When I got back,  they’d emigrated. ALBERT

15 You must’ve spent a third of your life standing in front of mirrors. My earliest childhood recollection is of you standing in front of a mirror. Up until I was four, I thought you was twins. RODNEY to DEL

16 Del: The French have a word for people like me. Rodney: Yeah, the English have a couple of good ’uns an’ all.

17 He died a couple of years before I was born. TRIGGER on his dad

18 It's a well-known fact that 90% of all foreign tourists come from abroad. DEL

19 What's the name of that bloke who invented the Dyson vacuum cleaner? TRIGGER

20 Give my love to Marlene... Everyone else used to. SLATER to BOYCIE

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Joke: Boycie was on the receiving end more often than not

21 Look at Grandad. His brain went years ago, now his legs have gone. There’s only the middle bit of him left. DEL

22 Would any self-respecting axe murderer pop upstairs for 40 winks and leave his chopper on the sideboard? DEL

23 I’ve just found out my wife has been lying to me. Every morning she says she’s gonna leave me and when I come home, she’s still there. DENZIL

24 Come on Rodney, I’ve told you before, it’s everything between you and me split straight down the middle, 60-40. DEL

25 He who dares wins. He who hesitates... doesn’t. DEL

26 I’ve got this horrible feeling. If there is such a thing as reincarnation, knowing my luck, I’ll come back as me. RODNEY

ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES Unlucky: But Rodney settled down with Cassandra

27 You've had more dogs than Crufts. The other day, Grandad took your suit to the cleaners. They found a muzzle in the pocket. DEL to RODNEY

28 You can’t trust the Old Bill, can ya? Look at that time they planted six gas cookers in my bedroom.   DEL

29 I am a black belt in origami. DEL

30 Del: We had Denzil in goal, we had Monkey-Harris left back, we had... camaraderie. Trigger: Was that the Italian boy?

Early stuff was defintely better but the episode when they became rich was quality. When they walked into the pub and everyone stops and stares then Denzil stands up and starts clapping and the whole pub follows, would bring a tear to a glass eye. If they had finished with the line "no Rodney, I'll buy the sandwiches, cos you got the rolls" it would have been perfect. Everything after that was pretty poor. Should have finished it there and left it.
Damien was sh*te.

Just reading those one-liners has me in stitches JackTheLad! 

Absolutely love Only Fools, and it's a shame I can't get it on any of the comedy Gold channels over here. Have to get myself that boxset some day, and enjoy them whenever I want.

Favourite episode for me is the Jolly Boys outing to Margate. Hilarious.

People always mention the most famous scenes and quotes but what I thought was the most clever aspect of it was at the beginning some off the cuff comment would be made and you'd forget about and it would end up being very central to the storeyline's ending. very clever script writing. I cannot see anything beating it and I love the new comedies as well

Agreed the earlier ones were best, some of the later ones where they went to america and Del was a double of a mob boss were a bit gank,

But the christmas special with batman and robbin, comming out of the fog, commic genius.

Also a special mention to Del setting Raquel up with Tony to sing Crying and he had a jonathan ross speech impediment. CYING over you

Trigger is universally popular but I'd put boycie above him. He was superb, a gangster of the highest order yet looked down on everyone.
I'm quoting this off the top of my head but remember their adoption fiasco with the German lassie.

I always thought Grandad was naturally more funny than Albert but to be fair Albert was the best possible replacement. In the documentary about it the writers were thinking of replacing Grandad with a woman which would ve been a disaster imo. They introduced Racquel and Casandra over a period of a few episodes which made sense

a festive bump.

Watched the one last night where Rodney met the posh girl on UK Gold.

They actually took out the whole scene where Del makes a joke about an Irishman skiing.

What made it more ridiculous was it was referenced again in another scene so if you were watching that and you didn't see it before or forgot the scene, you wouldn't have known what they were on about.
It's daft the amount of censoring done to it on UK Gold. BBC never edited it as far as I know.

Simply genius, I love the older stuff.
A huge moment was getting in uncle Albert. Losing granddad was a massive loss to the show. They did superbly getting buster merryfield in as his replacement - he was brilliant also.

If I'd to pick my top 10 pleasures in life OFAH would be right up there. It's superb and timeless.
I can't pick a favourite episode, there's brilliant bits in so many different episodes.
What I have come to the conclusion on though is that the latter ones weren't as good as earlier ones. The introduction of Cassandra and racquel, although required to keep a storyline, took away some of the 1 on 1 dialogue between the 2 boys.
Still brilliant, love it!

I love it.  Watching it on Gold now, one episode just over, another about to start.  Costs an extra €2 per month for it on my SKY package.  Think I'd get rid of Sky Sports channels before Gold even if same price.

One show I really need to watch from the start as have only watched episodes here and there but when I do actually sit down and watch one it has me in stitches.
One episode I remember del boy is at the dentist and she says "will just be a second" del boy says "I have to go, my brother is waiting" she says "just a little prick" and he goes "oh you know him then". f**king hilarious. Must download them from the start and make the time.

There's a load of stuff that's blocked these days. One example is Rodney saying 'The Paki short changed me'. There's a good few words and phrases that they've blocked.
