** It's enough to make up Del's mind:
-->'''Del:''' Egg and chips, please Mike!

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Many episode titles are a pun on popular sayings or film or song titles, ie "From Prussia With Love", "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Uncle". "Danger UXD", "Fatal Extraction" etc. The show itself is named for the saying "why do only fools and horses work [for a living]?" BBC executives initially vetoed the title, fearing that viewers would not understand it.

** JerkassHasAPoint: Del usually has to point out that Rodney's naivete is part of the problem when his kid brother gets ideas above his station. The Jerkass part of it comes from the fact it's partly Del's fault, he has held Rodney back quite a bit and while he was disappointed in the Marijuana incident that got Rodney expelled from college, he never really showed any enthusiasm for his brother's education.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Del Boy is self-centred, boorish, uneducated, a social climber (and a totally incompetent one at that) and a petty criminal, but he does genuinely care for the people he loves and has been shown to be quite sensitive at times.
* JiveTurkey: Denzil in his first appearance only, as it was immediately realised what a bad idea this was.

* [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Early-Instalment Weirdness]]: The first series and subsequent Christmas special doesn't start or end with the famous theme songs, instead starting and ending with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gmM8k1XzyM saxophone-led instrumental theme]] composed by Ronnie Hazlehurst. It wasn't until the first episode of the second series, "The Long Legs of the Law", when people heard the immortal line "Stick a pony in me pocket...". Less obvious to modern-day viewers however, as the DVD releases and nearly all television repeats have the newer theme dubbed onto the Series 1 episodes (though the VHS releases still used the original theme).

** Trigger wasn't the road sweeping CloudCuckooLander he became later. He was more just a thief and shady associate of Del's.
** While Trigger and Boycie made occasional appearances in series one and two, supporting characters like Mike, Denzil, Raquel, Cassandra and Marlene did not become regulars until much later on.
** Early episodes were 30 minutes long with a [[MonsterOfTheWeek zany scheme of the week]] plot. Later episodes were longer (up to 90 minutes), with more drama, more characters and the show became more of a serial with plotlines lasting several episodes.

** A more subtle example. The Trotters' living room set changes in every episode, a nod to their lifestyle and the fact that everything they own is for sale.
