I recently purchased the 'Man About The House' box set - only £16 on Amazon which I bought via this site of course :o

One episode in series 4 has George Roper claiming tax on a non existent son - straight from PAYE the tax man who visits the house is played by the vicar Anthony Sharp :)

It's not borrowing from steptoe and son but it's running along the Only fools and horses line.
Where Del boy falls through the bar, rated and classed as one of comedy's greatest moments?
Exactly the same as a scene from Fawlty Towers " The Psychiatrist "
Basil Fawlty is talking to Mr.s Abbott and leans on the door while talking to her as her husband inside (Dr. Abbott) opens it and Basil falls through.
Deja vu?

Hi everyone.

just to return to the first few posts of this thread for a moment:

another Sullivan ripoff of/affectionate nod to S & S - not that further proof is necessary of course - concerns the threat of an uncouth old Albert breaking wind and embarrassing the next of kin in company.

while keenly anticipating the arrival of the models during "Back In Fashion", Harold pulls Albert close with the crook of his walking stick and grittily grimaces ".....and if you feel like a doiley cart, can you go go outside, ok?"

i cant remember which episode (anybody??) but this is remarkably similar to an OFAH plotline/scene where Del Boy is expecting company and is similarly worried about (Uncle) Albert fouling the air and wrecking his chances. Del wags a finger and also employs Cockney Rhyming Slang when he warns him (i think) "and no Exchange and Marts ok?"
or something like that (might have been "Bakewell Tarts")
:lol:

Not sure about that but in the chandalier episode A TOUCH OF GLASS Del warns the Grandad "Don't you go dropping none in there!"

ok then folks, heres another.

somewhere in Harry Enfields Television Show (original series seasons) there was an amusing sketch which pilloried the (then) highly predictable stances - less polarised in todays climate- taken by rival political schools of thought.

an old school Dennis Skinner-type Labour MP and a trad Tory (played by HE) are sitting at the kitchen table and arguing over the social class/political orientation of Jesus Christ. the Leftie asserts old nail palm was a Socialist ("he was a carpenter: a horny-handed son of toil") to which the Conservative retorts "no, he was a self-employed small businessman!"

Albie and Harold had exactly the same debate many years previously - during a scene in "Tea For Two"!!!
sample dialogue:
Albert 'The Totting Tory' on Christ: "it doesnt make him any more of a Socialist just because he shared his Lillian Gish with the 5,000!"
Harold 'Vladimir' Steptoe: "he done more than that. he flung the money lenders out of the temple!"

rip or coincidence? H Enfield would have been the right age in 1990 or whatever to have been influenced by the comedic genius of G & S.
eh guys?

cheers :D
