    Good image but you are missing the first half of the cockney slang expression :)

    "Apples and pears" is Cockney rhyming slang for a staircase.

    Thank you, I did not know this kind of slang....
    From wikipedia:
    The rhyming phrase "apples and pears" evolved to mean "stairs". Following the pattern of omission, "and pears" is dropped, thus the spoken phrase "I'm going up the apples" means "I'm going up the stairs".

    It's pretty obscure!

    Normally there are two connected words and they often relate in some way to the "real" word. Other examples "frog and toad" = road (I guess because both amphibians can get squashed on the road?) and "trouble and strife" = wife (I'll leave you to guess the connection there!)
