Starring Sir David Jason and the late Roger Lloyd Pack, the 1989 play also topped the Radio Times poll last year. Wideboy Del is standing with his partner Trigger in the bar of a pub and they are discussing how to look for “modern day Euro birds”.
Looking at the two women at the table, he boasts: “I think we won here…play it cool and cool…” as he leans in, unaware that the barman has raised a flap, and disappeared through a gap.
Only Fools, which ran from 1981 to 2003, was also voted the best sitcom in the Gold poll, with almost a third of the vote, while 59 percent declared Del Boy their favorite comic character.
The second funniest moment of the sitcom was the scene where the Vicar of Dibley, played by Dawn French, falls into a deep depression on a country trip.
Third place went to Dad’s Army for the bit where a German officer demands to know the name of Private Pike (Ian Lavender) and Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) says: “Don’t tell him, Pike!” Fourth place went to John Cleese’s attempt to give his broken Day a “good laugh” with a tree branch in Fawlty Towers.
