Storyline

In the aftermath of the battle with their future selves, the crew, resurrected from the dead, due to time paradoxes and Lister is depressed when he learns the curry supplies were destroyed in the battle. But all hell breaks loose yet again, when Lister uses Kryten's spare-head "Spare Head 2" to take them back into time to get some curries from Earth. Only to change the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and create a alternate dimension. Written by Daniel Williamson

Trivia

When the second shooter fires from the Grassy Knoll, Lister, Rimmer and Cat are dressed up as tramps. Three tramps are reported to have been found behind the Grassy Knoll when the police searched it after the shooting, but later released. For many years, conspiracy theorists assumed that they were part of the assassination plot. See more »

Quotes

[the Dwarfers, while time traveling, inadvertently knock the gunman out of the Texas School Book Depository window during the JFK assassination]
Lister: Hey, what's going on down there? What're all those people doing gathered around that giant pizza?
Kryten: That is *not* a giant pizza, sir.
Lister: It's 8 foot across, man - you don't think that's giant? What kind of pizza house have you been going to? The Fat-Bastard-o-ria?

poignant tribute
18 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On the surface, this episode is in terrible taste. It plays sort of as a parody of the legendary "Star Trek" episode "City on the Edge of Forever." Dave Lister and pals inadvertently go back in time to Dallas November 22, 1963, and foil Lee Harvey Oswald's attempt on John F. Kennedy. They soon find out that because of their actions, the U.S.A. disintegrated and the USSR won the space race. In order to set things right they go back in time to find a now impeached JFK (whose womanizing ways finally caught up with him), and persuade him to become the second gunman behind the "Grassy Knoll," thus saving his country and his place in history. In the end the episode turns into a surprisingly poignant tribute to the late president, doing a better job of conveying the meaning of his life and death than many more responsible productions. KERA, the PBS affiliate in Dallas, runs this episode every year around the anniversary of the assassination.
