1996 Christmas Trilogy - Modern Men
Del is reading a book called 'Modern Man'.
Despite being convinced he is the dictionary definition of debonair masculinity, the book is making him behave irrationally and rashly.
Rodney is concerned about this. Cassandra is expecting, and he wants more responsibility and a better job to provide for his family. He unwittingly replies for a job advertisement, posted by Del to alleviate Rodney's workload.
Del, meanwhile, has decided to take his manhood into his own hands and get a vasectomy. Doctor Singh is hounding him regarding dodgy paint, and the nightmare of him getting revenge on Del's crown jewels puts him off the idea.
Cassandra is rushed into hospital, suffering a miscarriage. Rodney breaks down, and it's Del who tells him he has to be strong for his wife. Del then blubs his eyes out, as Rodney supports his wife.
