* YankTheDogsChain: George learns that a girl he had an affair with on VE night gave birth to a boy nine months later and naturally concludes that he's the father. After meeting the boy (now a professional plumber) he learns that he's now married with a daughter and takes the first available opportunity to go round and [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming gets to know his wife and child]] [[spoiler: and then his alleged son comes in with paperwork indicating that his father's actually his mate who was there on the same night.]]

Mildred's snobbish sister Ethel (Avril Elgar) and her wealthy husband Humphrey (Reginald Marsh) occasionally visit, as does Mildred's mother (Gretchen Franklin). Mildred often makes subtle and unsubtle digs at Ethel's age, or social status and pretensions, when Ethel visits. George's friend Jerry (Creator/RoryKinnear), a jack-of-all-trades, also visits, much to Mildred's annoyance. Jerry is fond of referring to Mildred as "[[MaliciousMisnaming Mildew]]".

George and Mildred Roper have left their old house after receiving a compulsory purchase order from the Council and move to 46 Peacock Crescent in Hampton Wick. While Mildred enjoys the chance to better herself in her new surroundings, she is always being thwarted--usually by the lazy and generally unemployed George, who has no interest in climbing the social ladder, and continues to show a lack of interest in sexual relations with Mildred.

George and Mildred's yuppie next-door neighbours are Jeffrey Fourmile, a snobbish estate agent, and his wife, Ann. They have a young son called Tristram, who gets on well with Mildred and George, and in series 3, a second child called Tarquin is born. The Conservative-supporting Jeffrey is greatly irritated by socialist George, who frequently annoys him.

Ranked 55 in ''BritainsBestSitcom''. ''Series/TheRopers'' is its TransatlanticEquivalent, much as ''Series/ThreesCompany'' is one to ''Man About the House'' itself.
