  • Episode Description
  • While Kochanski is still trying to get back to her dimension and Kryten is still jealous of the relationship that she could have with Lister; Lister begins to miss Rimmer and reflects on some of the fun times that he and Rimmer spent together in the early days after the accident. When he has a dream that Rimmer returns and he and Rimmer kiss, Kryten tries some psychology to get to the bottom of Lister's problem. However Kochanski has a little talk with Lister and makes him realise why he misses Rimmer, much to Kryten's disgust. Kryten, having to be one step better than Kochanski, creates "The Rimmer Experience" a virtual reality rollercoaster created from Rimmer's memories, depicting him thinking of himself as a 'Hero' and a 'Remarkable Person', giving Cat fashion tips and believing that Lister has called for Rimmer to save him before he wets himself. As the ride finishes Lister is so angry at Rimmer that Kryten sticks it to Kochanski because his method worked better than hers.moreless

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (6)

    • Kochanski: (about Rimmer) Did he have any redeeming features? Lister: No. Oh yeah, sometimes he went out of the room.

    • Cat: We're getting nowhere, bud. He won't throw anything away because it reminds him of the good times he had with Rimmer! I must have blinked and missed them.

    • (In Lister's memory he and Rimmer are golfing, Rimmer has gone off in search of his ball) Lister: (to Kryten) Look at him. With the right boots, he could be marching into Poland.

    • Rimmer Munchkin Song If you're in trouble, he will save the day, He's brave and he's fearless, come what may, Without him, the mission would go astray, He's Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer, Without him, life would be much grimmer, He's handsome, trim, and no one's slimmer, He will never need a Zimmer. He's Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer, More reliable than a garden Strimmer, He's never been mistaken for Yul Brynner, He's not bald and his head doesn't glimmer. Master of the wit and the repartee, His command of space directives is uncanny, How come he's such a genius? Don't ask me! Ask Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer, He's also a fantastic swimmer, And if you play your cards right, then he just might come round for dinner. [Extended version only:] He's Arnold, Arnold, Arnold Rimmer, No rhymes left now apart from quimmer, We hope they fade us out before we get to schwimmer, Fade out you stupid plimmer...

    • Cat: I hate to interrupt, but this thing, whatever the hell it is, is gonna hit us in about forty-five seconds! Lister: I was only tryin' to save time, so we could get to the dimensional tear quicker! So you could get home to your much better Lister. Kochanski: And I'm just trying to prevent us being scattered all over the galaxy like some kind of cosmic seasoning! Cat: Here it comes! Kochanski: That wasn't forty-five seconds! Cat: Oh - sorry! I was reading the baked potato timer by mistake! Will people not leave that in here?? It just makes us look like we don't know what the hell we're doing!

    Notes (3)

    • The video cassette "Red Dwarf X-tended" featured an extended version of the Rimmer Munchkin Song.

    • The voice we hear when Rimmer is singing is not Chris Barrie's, instead it is Howard Goodall's.

    • This is the last episode of the season to feature Chris Barrie

    Trivia (1)

    • In Lister's flashbacks Rimmer is wearing his blue suit, which he got with the hard-light drive in 'Legion'. If the flashbacks were from the early days after the accident, Rimmer should be wearing either his normal grey uniform from seasons 1-2 or the green suit he wore from season 3. Of course this is Lister's memory we are talking about here....

    Allusions (1)

    • During the Rimmer Song, a reference is made to Yul Brynner. Brynner is a famous actor(Who, as the song says, is bald), who appeared in The Ten Commandments, The King and I, The Magnificent Seven, and Westworld.
