Best Only Fools and Horses Episodes


The Top Ten

1 The Jolly Boy's Outing

Timeless masterpiece


Best bit is when he goes really I thought he was pissed

Luvvly Jubbly-best episode ever!

2 Friday The 14th


This is the best so funny especially when gatekeeper looks through the window. This is definitely number one.

So funny

It is awesome

3 Time On Our Hands

The Trotters finally become millionaire's. I think this should have been the last episode, but then years later they made 3 more to clear up the Freddy The Frog mysteries and to give Rodney and Cassandra their baby. - EvilAngel

Saw this episode recently fantastically well written and heartwarming classic

4 Danger UXD

The hilarious pop up dolls episode - EvilAngel

The way they fall on the floor at the end when they blow up.

I love the part when vary said who's the monk

Best all round episode. Just hilarious is all I can say.

5 Miami Twice (Oh To Be In England)

The second episode of Miami Twice. Del and Rodney are almost killed by the Mafia - EvilAngel

David Jason's dual roles of Del Boy and Don Occhetti, a powerful mafia boss.

Rodney angrily holding Don Occhetti against a wall, thinking he is Del

Del riding across the sea on a jinxed water ski

The Trotters coming face-to-face with an alligator in the Everglades while escaping from the mafia

6 Tea for Three

Watch Dells face as he is about to take off in the Hand glider, its worth being in the top ten for this alone! Never seen fear expressed in films or t.v. so well ever. Hilarious episode.

Must be in the top 10?

7 To Hull and Back

Dodgy diamond deal special - EvilAngel

Feature length brilliance

Okay, so I come from Hull and did a double take in the summer of '85 when I saw Del Boy's Reliant Robin driving along Anlaby Road, before I even knew they were filming an episode in my neck of the woods... Even so it is a very clever episode with plenty of plot to justify its longer length. I think the first of the feature-length eps?

So funny. Proves you don't need an audience yo kaugh out loud

8 Heroes and Villains

its good

I like this one very funny

The classic Batman and Robin episode - EvilAngel

9 Who's a Pretty Boy?

Corrine makes a brilliant appearance in this, such a shame the actress died shortly after. The scene with grandad in the pet shop is comedy gold!

10 The Unlucky Winner Is.....

Simply the best, a master class

Great episode and Trudy following Rodney is hilarious! the groovy gang haha

Rodney: "They think I'm 15! "
Del Boy: "No Rodney, no. They think you're 14."
Simply brilliant

The Contenders

11 A Touch of Glass

Yeah baby

The Trotters are tasked with cleaning a chandelier. And it falls - EvilAngel

Super super episode the trio at their very best

This episode show why only fools and horses is loved so much by many who werent even born, I know many people who iv had lots of conversations with about the classic grandad scene with the chandelier, brilliant just love it.

12 Yuppy Love

Best episode ever

Del falls through the bar, and we meet Cassandra - EvilAngel

The most classic scene that will give you giggles for hours

Hard picking a favourite. It's like choosing your favourite kid.if my arm was twisted,I'd go for this.giggles throughout.rodney's name on his jacket,walking home in the wrong coat, and of course the bar scene!

13 Who Wants to Be a Millionaire

Originally penned as the last episode but David Jason had a rethink. The character of Jumbo Mills is really funny and the meeting he and Del had is hilarious.
Del - No Jumbo I can't go, family ties
Jumbo - bring em with ya, put young Rodney on the payroll
Del -well he does has 2 GCE's
Jumbo - that doesn't matter we'll find something for him to do.

14 Strained Relations

Both poignant and funny. Real insight into dels character.very powerful performance by david jason. I'm delboy ain't I. I've got more bounce than zebedee. Awesome writing. Very poignantly performed.

15 Homesick
16 Dates

This is the best ever fools and horses funny all the way through should be number 1 episode

Guenius storyline

24 Mother Nature's Son

The peckham spring is hilarious

25 Wanted

Del really winds Rodders up in this one. In my top 10 with ease!

26 Stage Fright

This is easy a top 5 of the best ever episodes because all of the best episodes are usually because of certain scenes etc

"The Gween Gween Gwass of Home" almost had me "cwying", let alone the performance itself. - Rocko

27 The Frog's Legacy
