[Joan and Del have been talking about Rodney's dirty nappy. Vi arrives to baby-sit. Ted comes into the room]
Ted Trotter: [sarcastically] Oh God, that's lovely to to wake up to, ain't it?
Reg Trotter: It's only a shitty nappy.
Ted Trotter: No, I'm talking about your nan. Eighteen months ago I walked out of that flat in Deptford to get away from her, and now she's here.
Reg Trotter: Well go back to the flat in Deptford, then.

One last portion of Rock and Chips
6 May 2011 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This episode aired as a tribute to the shows writer John Sullivan and succeeds in not only showcasing the great mans talents of writing both comedy and drama but also leaves us wanting more of this great series. You can't help wishing that there was more.

With this being the third episode all the cast are really into their stride now with Nicholas Lyndhurst continuing to shine and James Buckley also becoming more confident as young Del Boy.

This episode is perhaps the funniest of the three and the ending is not as rounded as the other two which only shows that Sullivan had dreams of writing more Rock and Chips.

As the credits roll we as an audience feel sad about the way the series has been brought to a premature close and that Britain has lost one of it's greatest comedy writers in John Sullivan. RIP Mr Sullivan.
