n.— «For Only Fools and Horses John Sullivan replaced the expletives of south London with a rich invented argot. Jason revelled in it, and, in a neat example of reality reflecting art, made words such as dipstick, noofter and lovely jubbly part of a real-life wide boy’s vocabulary.» —“After the courses, the Horses” Independent (London, U.K.) Dec. 19, 1992.
