Quotes

MP Thornton: David Lister, you are formally charged with stealing and crashing the Starbug. You're also charged with having no pilot's licence and smuggling two stowaways on board with Navigational Officer Kristine Kochanski. Anything you do say now, or do not say now, may be used in a Board of Enquiry against you. Do you require any form of aid?
Lister: Yeah. Lemonade and a really large scotch.
