As Rimmer is taking Kryten for a driving lesson in Starbug they find themselves being whisked away through a time hole and end up on Earth, where time is running backwards.
Did You Know?
The episode "Backwards" sees the Red Dwarf crew visit a version of Earth where time runs in the opposite direction. As a result - all the guest cast have their lines reversed. One sequence involves the owner of a pub allegedly chastising Kryten for starting a fight. In fact he actually says: "You are a stupidly square-headed bald git, aren't you eh?" He then turns to Rimmer and says: "You, I'm pointing at you, but I'm not actually addressing you. I'm addressing the one prat in the entire country who's actually bothered to get hold of this recording, turn it around and actually work out the rubbish that I'm saying. What a poor sad life he's got!" See more
While Rimmer is testing Kryten in Starbug, he points to a picture which Kryten identifies as a "binary star." Rimmer then asks "what's that one?" while pointing to the same page and identifies it as "quite obviously a blue giant about to go supernova," but he is pointing to the same page Kryten already identified as a "binary star."
