Series 6, Episode 3 - Chain Gang
Del strikes up a cushty deal with a retired jewellery dealer called Arnie. When a case of 18-carat gold chains is offered to him, Del agrees buy them to the tune of £12,500.
Despite Rodney's objections, Derek ropes Mike, Boycie, Trigger, Albert and... Rodney into a consortium in which no-one can lose.
A spanner is thrown into the works when Arnie collapses at a business lunch, seemingly struck by a heart-attack. The ambulance whisks him away, with both the jewellery and twelve-and-a-half grand still on his person.
Despite being dead, some days later, Rodney spots Arnie collapsing and being whisked away from another restaurant.
They've been had, but no-one pulls a fast one quicker than the Trotters and revenge is the only dish on the menu when Arnie dines with Denzil's siblings!
