Series 4, Episode 6 - Watching The Girls Go By
Rodney is taking some stick from the lads down the pub about his 'imaginary' girlfriend, and Mickey Pearce bets him fifty that he won't bring a girl to the Saturday night bash in The Nag's Head.
When Rodney admits to Del that he was lying about the girl he's going to bring on Saturday night, his big brother sets about trying to get him a date.
On the Friday night, the two brothers head out clubbing, and despite trying almost every club in London, they end up alone in a seedy little bar. As luck would have it, Del boy spots Yvonne, an old flame who he knows isn't too picky who she goes out with, and he offers to pay her part of the winnings from Rodney's bet if she'll escort his little bruv the following night.
Unfortunately, Del fails to mention to Rodney that Yvonne's developed a bit of a gin problem of late - or that she's a stripper. Half way through the evening, Rodders is telling Mickey about his and Yvonne's desire for marriage; only to turn round and discover her naked on the bar.
Del Boy tries to calm Rodders with the thought of his winnings - but Del's the one left shocked when it turns out that the bet's not for £50, but 50 pence!
