Episode Summary

EDIT
Lister tries in vain to teach Kryten how to lie, insult, cheat and disobey orders. Lister gives up when Rimmer calls Kryten on a trip "moon-hopping". On the trip they receive a distress call and Kryten goes to investigate against Rimmer's orders (The planet is about to explode).
Kryten rescues a "female" droid called Camille who he falls in love with, even though droids aren't supposed to have feelings like that. Kryten takes Camille back to Starbug, but when Rimmer sees her, she appears to him as a hologram who is quite taken with him. They bring her back to Red Dwarf and Lister sees a human female with lowbrow tastes and manners particularly well suited to him.
Lister notices how everyone reacts to Camille and she confesses to Lister that she is a Pleasure GELF (Genetically Engineered Life Form) programmed to be everyone's perfect companion. The Cat goes to see how he perceives her, with amusing results. The GELF turns into her true form at Kryten's request which is a huge green gelatinous blob.
Despite her revolting appearance, Kryten still decides to ask her to dinner, then takes her to a movie (Casablanca). A pod arrives containing Hector (Camille's "Husband") who wants to find a cure for their condition.
Kryten (to his own disappointment) convinces her to go.moreless
