YMMV / Last of the Summer Wine

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: A lot of Eli's cameos are completely self-contained gags totally separate to the rest of the episode and very different in tone. This doesn't stop them being hilarious.
    • Wally Batty's brief appearance in "Getting Sam Home", stumbling drunkenly to his front door, only to be discovered and accosted by his wife, Nora, did not need to be in the movie at all. It seems to have been included (thankfully) just so that Wally would appear in the movie.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: See ya, Compo
    • Also pretty much the entirety of "Just A Small Funeral", particularly the end. Doubles as a Tear Jerker; you can tell the cast aren't acting but genuinely upset.
    • There are quite a few where Clegg is concerned in the later years:
      • In one episode, Clegg hangs a "Do Not Disturb" sign on his front door. Naturally, this causes a small crowd to gather around his house due to curiosity, including Truly, Billy, Howard and Pearl. As they're wondering what he's doing, one person suggests he's committed suicide. Truly is infuriated by the very notion and orders the man to leave for spreading "vicious rumours."
      • Another one comes on his birthday. Clegg just wants a quiet birthday by himself, and decides to spend it with Truly having lunch at a nice hotel. Unfortunately, there's a wedding reception at the same hotel, and everyone else is there. Naturally, in the end, everyone finds out that it's Clegg's birthday, and Pearl - at first looking like she's going to yell at him - sweetly says, "Happy Birthday, Norman." And then Truly leads everyone in a round of "Happy Birthday to you!"
      • There is one occasion when Clegg's cousin Aubrey comes over and is insistent that someone of Clegg's age shouldn't be wandering around without a purpose and keeps him inside all day. Truly, Alvin and Billy scheme to free him and manage to trick Aubrey into getting drunk enough that they can stick him on a bus home, much to Clegg's delight.
      • To add to that, the same episode reveals that Pearl often buys milk for Clegg.
    • Compo and Clegg's friendship in general. Any time Clegg will say something about Compo that fits his character, Compo will very enthusiastically agree with, "You're RIGHT, Norm! You're RIGHT!" It's enough to make anyone smile.
  • Seasonal Rot: For a 37 year long run some seasons are bound to be better than others. Though there is a general conscious that things were never quite the same after Compo passed away.
  • Squick: In-universe, Clegg is cripplingly susceptible to it, particularly anything involving women and sex. He completely falls apart any time a woman, especially Marina, comes on to him.
  • Unpopular Popular Character: Foggy. No one seems all that fond of him in-universe, but he is considered the most popular "third man" character, and his time as the de facto leader is considered by some to be the series' Golden Age.
