Quotes [a Psiren is trying to seduce Lister, so she can suck out his brains with a straw]
Pete Tranter's Sister: How long has it been since you made love to a woman?
Lister: I admit, it's been a while.
Pete Tranter's Sister: It's been over three million years, Dave.
Lister: I prefer to count it in ice ages, then it's only four. And in leap ice ages, it's barely even one.
