Trivia

Rimmer tells Lister that his nickname (or rather the nickname he always wanted to be called) was 'Ace' much to Lister's amusement. This foreshadows the appearance of Arnold 'Ace' Rimmer (Rimmer's more successful counterpart from a parallel dimension) in series four. See more »

Goofs

When Lister is wearing his foul-smelling moon boots, it seems as though Rimmer can smell them due to his expression and Lister telling him his eyes are watering, even though he denies it. As a hologram, Rimmer shouldn't be able to smell. See more »

Quotes
