Trivia

Dimension Jump (#4.5) is Chris Barrie's favorite episode out of all the episodes of "Red Dwarf", because it gave Chris Barrie the opportunity to play both Ace Rimmer and Arnold Judas Rimmer. See more »

Goofs

Ace should have appeared at the time Rimmer was either 2nd Technician on Red Dwarf or dead owing to the accident (their ages appear comparable). The Dimension Jump ship is not a time machine so could not have sent Ace 3 million years into the future. See more »

Quotes

The Cat: [Lister, Cat and Kryten try to hide the fact they're going on a fishing holiday from Rimmer] What's he talking about?
Dave Lister: I don't know. For some reason, he's got this crazy, whacked-out idea that we're going on a fishing holiday.
The Cat: Fishing holiday?
Rimmer: [Reads letter from the boys] Dear Rimmer, we're going on a fishing holiday to that ocean planet we passed two days ago. We tried to wake you, but couldn't. See you in three days, L, K and C.

Crazy Credits

The end credits have the Red Dwarf theme as an instrumental played on a Hammond Organ in reference to Rimmer's liking of Hammond Organ music. See more »
