- Batman and Robin
- Cassandra's miscarriage
- Del Boy falls through the bar
- Auction fainting

Cassandra's Miscarriage™ has just 3% of the votes, so we need to get the word out ASAP.

Falling through the bar is unsurprisingly highest with 36%.

Exit poll has Falling through the bar on course to win with 55% of the vote, with particularity large shares of the vote expected in the South East.

I watched the clip for Cassandra's Miscarriage and I heard Del Boy say to Rodney "No crying, no booing" as if Rodney was going to walk in there and boo his distraught wife. He must have meant boo-hooing but it sounded a bit jarring. It wasn't a football match.

Del Boy tries to get Denzil to train them all up as lorry drivers in order to "support Boris", but Denzil tells him to do one. "I wouldn't trust you behind the wheel of a push-bike, Trotter, let alone my massive lorry! You'd take out Peckham High Street!" In response, Del Boy offers to use his three wheeled van to transport goods but ends up with a load of lorry parts to deliver to North London that knacker the suspension.

When Del finally gets to the border between South and North London, he has forgotten to bring his passport and the border guards detain him for a cavity search. Close up on Del Boy's face as a massive hand is shoved up his bottom!

Eventually, he gets to the car parts warehouse but it is closed as it is 9pm so he drops the car parts outside and drives back home (requiring another cavity search on the South London side of the border) only to find out that the parts were actually for lorries meaning even longer for lorry freight to get there as they were stolen. Del Boy blames the "woke FBPE types" and turns on GB News.

The parlance of the Trotter world became not just known for great lines of TV comedy bullion. It became part of the vocabulary of a nation. 'You plonker!', Alright, Dave', 'Rodney, you tart!', ‘Lovely Jubbly’, ‘You know it makes sense’, a Jolly Boys Outing, 'this time next year we'll be millionaires' and all of Del Boy's bad French assurances still bounce about British popular culture like Nervous Nerys in a speeding Robin Reliant.

The Trotters have been satirized in music by The Jam, the Human League, The Lightning Seeds, The Wonderstuff and Scritti Politti as well as featuring in numerous stage shows. A TV tribute show was filmed in 2000 entitled The Return of the Famous Jubbly Family, featuring a number of famous TV personalities. The show was spoofed in a 2006 series, The Return of the Famous Jubbly Family starring Alan Davies.

In popular culture
Trotterisms are now used and misused daily by the inhabitants of a wide variety of online communities, most notably forums and chatrooms. They are used to show approval, to encourage other users to do things and to poke fun at other users' stupidity. Some users, especially those in politics or other areas of controversy, use Trotterisms for their own ends. Although Trotterisms are usually used in the third person, some users have taken to using the first person to describe people they
