Always had a strange affinity for this one. Tend to agree with most of what's been said above. I went back and saw this one today, largely because I wanted to see Arthur and Jock's scenes again, which have stuck out in my mind, and I wasn't disappointed there..but there were some other great points this time as well:
Great moment when Arthur offers to call the car deal off, trying to grab back the gifts of Scotch from Johnny.
Lionel Jeffries did great as Cecil, with lines like "monstrosity of a gaff" and "a right strait jacket merchant if ever I saw one" somehow sticking out.
Keith Barron's character was fun to see, for me. Always great seeing how Arthur copes with being manhandled, with Terry absent. And just got to love Arthur's reaction to the "It won't happen to me" poster.
Good stuff from Dave, between his corniche pastie line, and his vacuuming to give Arthur privacy on the dog.
Once again, Arthur is cowering to the side at a punch-up, and has the line, "Oh mahgawd, the Vatman"!
Summed up perfectly there denzel!

Daley & McCann are, as good as, holding hands, on the exercise yard, in the scrubs.
I caught this today and noticed a bit of dialogue that I've not heard before. When Cecil and Terry are going up the steps of the footbridge toward the boat Cecil says "I'm not being cut up by a purple Ford Capri etc." and in all the times I've watched the episode I can't remember hearing it before on dvd or tv showings.
