Goofs

Rimmer asks how they did escape from the Simulant ship, to which Kryton replies "the teleporter", but that is not correct; they initially tried the teleporter, then teleported back to the Simulant ship and escaped in Starbug. See more »

Quotes

[Kryten has given Rimmer a set of Chinese worry balls to help him cope with his stress-related nerve disorder]
Kryten: Please, sir, don't panic.
Rimmer: It's not panic, it's a full blown hysterical fit.
Kryten: Grind those balls, sir. Grind them!
