Rodney & Del

Heroes and Villains

Viewing Figures: 21.3 million

Rodney’s fertility schedule is wearing him down. Such is Cassandra’s need to have a baby, he buys her a rabbit, Roger, to care for until a little one arrives.

Del has a shipment of Latvian alarm clocks he can’t shift and his home improvement grant has been rejected.

Del receives his medalIt’s Rodders’ birthday, and Del buys him a cheap gold bracelet inscribed ‘Rooney’. Finding themselves on a rare boys night out, they dress up as Batman and Robin for a fancy dress party held for a local publican. En route, they prevent Councillor Murray from being mugged.

They arrive at the party, to discover it’s actually a wake, and that ‘fancy dress’ meant ‘dress well’.

The following day Del is awarded a bravery medal for tackling another mugger, and Cassandra has good news: She's pregnant.

Did You Know?
The early drafts of this script featured a hidden treasure sub-plot. ‘I dropped the idea but kept the Batman and Robin image. The missing treasure eventually became the Harrison watch, which made Del and Rodney millionaires’ says Sullivan.
Famous quote

Rodney: We didn’t know the fancy dress had been cancelled.
Trigger: Me neither.
Rodney: You mean, that’s your costume?
Trigger: Yeah. I came as a chauffeur. [Thinks] I feel a bit stupid now.
Del: Yeah, you do stand out.
