  • Episode Description
  • Kryten gets fussy and jealous thinking that Lister likes Kochanski better than him. When the primary power goes off and they get stuck in a room, they have no choice but to climb into the small ventilation ducts which wind round Starbug in order to escape. Whilst inside the ducts they discover a lot about each other, including the fact Lister is claustrophobic.

    • The Cat: It's so damn hot, I can barely breathe. Satan could come here for his winter break!

    • Kryten: What would you say to a glass of drinking chocolate? Kochanski: I'd say "Glass of drinking chocolate, get me out of here!"

    • Kryten: What about the way you look at him? Kochanski: What way? Kryten: I've seen the way! Kochanski: What way? Kryten: Like he's a pot of cottage cheese with pineapple chunks in! Kochanski: (aghast) How could you say that..? I have never looked at him like he's a pot of cottage cheese with pineapple chunks in! Maybe, once or twice, plain cottage cheese, but never, ever, with pineapple chunks in! Never. Never! (beat) Have I?

    • Kochanski: Have you ever listened to those clapped-out old pipes? 'Nureek'ing and 'retut'ing, and just when you expect them to 'nureek' again, they 'squrlookal'! It's enough to make a perfectly sane person crazy!!! Kryten: It's quite amazing, the number of people those pipes have driven to the very brink of psychosis. Mr Lister spent the night in there once, and he ended up trying to suffocate himself to death with an onion sandwich.

    • Kochanski: Squirluckle? Where did Squirluckle come from? He's new!!

    Notes (3)

    • A scene that was cut but appears on "Red Dwarf X-tended" has the crew stop to rest during their crawl through the air ducts. Lister tells them of the time he spent in an orphanage involving a friend called Squeaky Gibson while Kochanski mentions what life was like for her after Cyber-school. Cat finishes off the scene with his "Me" speech as to why the Universe revolves around him.

    • This is the first episode not to feature Chris Barrie as Rimmer at any point.

    • The opening titles were omitted from this episode as they were considered to be expendable when the episode overran.

    • The title is an obvious play on the Marx Brothers' classic movie, Duck Soup.
