Trivia

Originally, the Cat's parallel dimension counterpart was to be a slovenly janitor. However, this was changed to the ship's chaplain due to concerns that that would appear racist. 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

Ace Rimmer: I'm gonna scrub up.
Rimmer: I'm gonna throw up.

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 »
