When Marlene vanishes and Boycie is secretive about her disappearance, people assume he has killed her, but she only went to have a boob job. The Trotters need money to stave off being evicted but are saved when it transpires that Uncle Albert invested his savings wisely and leaves them almost a quarter of a million pounds. Del tells Rodney that his real father was not Reg Trotter but a flash local crook called Freddie 'the Frog' Robdal. Cassandra goes into labour, this time successfully and her baby girl is named Joan after Del and Rodney's mother and with whose spirit the brothers go to commune.

Did You Know?
Many people consider the 1996 Christmas trilogy the story's true conclusion rather than the 2001/2002/2003 trilogy; that was the moment the curtain came down on Only Fools and Horses
(1981). David Jason
acknowledged that the critics felt they shouldn't have gone back to it, that the bow so neatly tied in 1996 was now undone again. But the public wanted more, and so did the BBC, and since John Sullivan
was writing it, everyone felt obligated to return. See more

Well Boycie, I hope you won't take offence and what I'm about to say, but me and Rodney think you've murdered Marlene and buried her in the garden.
How dare you! Murdered my wife and buried her in the garden? I have never been so insulted in my life. You know how much I've spent on that garden! You think I'm going to dig a hole in it?
