Series 5 - A Royal Flush
Rodney meets Vicky, a seemingly impoverished artist who it transpires is the daughter of the Duke of Maylebury, one of the Queen's second-cousins.
Having obtained a pair of tickets to the sold-out production of Carmen, Rodders seems to have deeply impressed Vicky. She is less taken by the sudden appearance of Del and his peroxide blonde dolly bird however - especially when they open the dolly mixture.
Vicky invites Rodney to a party at the Duke's country home, and it seems romance may be on the cards. But then Del Boy turns up, hits the vino-plonko and callously, drunkenly ruins everything for his little brother.
A full 15 minutes are cut from this episode's DVD release.
