Trivia

(#2.1) originally ended with Kryten being seen leaving Red Dwarf on Lister's spacebike and flying off into space. The ending was filmed, but the broadcast of (#2.1) ended with a freeze frame, when Kryten revs up Lister's spacebike engine. However, the full ending was reinstated for the remastered version.

Goofs

When Rimmer states that the skeletal remains of the Nova 5's crew have "less meat on them than a chicken nugget", his lip movements don't match the words. (It looks as though he originally said "Chicken McNugget" and the line was later overdubbed.) See more »

Quotes

Rimmer: It's always the same when we meet girls. Put me down and make yourself look good.
Lister: Like when?
Rimmer: Remember those 2 little brunettes from Supplies? I told them I worked in Stores and they were really interested and asked me exactly what I did there.
Lister: And I said you were a shelf.
Rimmer: Exactly. And then I suggested a little trip to Titan Zoo, and you said, 'Ooh, he's taking you home to meet his Mum already.'
Lister: So? They laughed.
Rimmer: Yes, at me. At my expense.
