Del is organising the annual beano to Margate, the traditional Jolly Boys' Outing. But Rodney and Cassandra have just celebrated their first wedding anniversary, and she's worried about him going out with the boys - especially as Cassandra's angling for a promotion with her yuppie boss. When Rodney is arrested and the whole party is stranded by a very nasty accident, her worst fears are realised.
But there's more to Margate than chips, cockles, ice-cream, doughnuts, Pina Colada, and lobster vindaloo. There's magician The Great Ramondo and his lovely assistant Raquel.
All right for Del, but back home, Cassandra's ambitions appear to have got out of hand...

Nearly a year has passed since Rodney married his sweetheart Cassandra. He is now working for her father's printing firm, while Uncle Albert has to act as "Executive Lookout" for Trotters' Independent Traders
, i.e: watching out for the police. Whilst Albert and Del Boy flog car radios "as recommended by Nigel Mansell" down at the market, Cassandra visits them both and narrowly avoids one of Albert's war-stories. She also tries to put them off from coming to dinner at her and Rodney's flat the following evening, but Del is naively slow on the uptake and proclaims he and Albert will be there. Soon Marlene, with her newborn son named Tyler, pops by and chats with Del, who talks about how he, Rodney, Albert, Boycie, and numerous Nag's Head
regulars are going off on their traditional once-a-year annual "Beano" (day-trip) called the Jolly Boys' Outing
to the seaside resort of Margate on Saturday...Read the full recap
John Sullivan's sister-in-law Penny was the inspiration behind the script, as she told him of an event her father used to go on each year, called the "Jolly Boys' Outing". The very first Jolly Boys' Outing was seen in the first episode of the comedy-drama prequel trilogy Rock & Chips.
