Trivia

The flashback which Cat is beaten up by Mr. Ackerman, Warden Knot and the guards is obviously when Lister poured the sexual magnetism virus from Red Dwarf: Back in the Red: Part 3 (1999) when they arrived in The Tank after being found guilty and sentenced to 2 years for abusing classified information. In the flashback, Rimmer does not have the sexual magnetism virus on his right shoulder which Lister poured on him as revenge for Rimmer's actions. See more »
