    What's your favourite Red Dwarf episode? Mine has to be Back To Reality. Love the storyline. Dwayne Dibley???? :D


Comments



  • Back to Reality is pretty good.

    My all time favourite would probably be Gunmen of the Apocalypse




  • both of the shapeshifter episodes rocked imho




  • Quarantine.

    It was one of those episodes that had some truly scary and funny moments. Hildegard Landstrom is one scary villain for one appearing in a comedy show and for such a brief time.

    I was just getting back into the first two series myself. Now I can really appreciate their purity - that they were really simply about a man coming to terms with an existential crisis brought about by his situation as the last man alive...........With some odd couple style comedy thrown in for good measure.:P




  • Better than Life (irc) was a brilliant episode, I really liked how Rimmer's negativity ruined the game. One of funniest moments is when he's trying to imagine his ideal car and the first thing he comes up with is the 3 wheeler from Fools and Horses.




  • One of my personal favs is White Hole

    So what is it!!!!!!!!:D

    Rimmer: It's about leadership. That's what I admire.
    Lister: It's ironic when deep down, you're such a basic natural coward.
    Rimmer: Coward?
    Lister: Planet leave, Miranda? That space-bar, the Hacienda? remember that? When that fight started up, Rimmer, you were out of that door quicker than a whippet with a bum full of dynamite.
    Rimmer: That was a bar-room brawl. That was a common pub fight, a shambolic, drunken set-to.
    Lister: Which YOU Started.
    Rimmer: I just made an innocuous comment. I merely voiced the rumour that McWilliams was sexually tilted in favour of sleeping with the dead. I didn't start the rumour, I merely voiced it.

    love it

    love it

    RIMMER: Kryten, would you get the hacksaw and follow me?
    KRYTEN: Where are we going?
    RIMMER: We're going to do to Lister what Alexander the Great once did to
    me.




  • Lister - "You thought you got lucky, but it turned out the whole time you had your hand in warm compost".

    Stunning stuff.




  • i don't even have to watch these episodes, I just read the quotes and hear/see them spoken :D

    Same here :D Actually, I wonder if the thread could double up as a favourite Episode/Quote thread? If so:

    "I'm just nippin' down the corner shop does anyone want anything?"




  • White Hole is by far my favourite:

    CAT: So, what is it?
    KRYTEN: I've never seen one before -- no one has -- but I'm guessing it's
    a white hole.
    RIMMER: A _white_ hole?
    KRYTEN: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. A black hole
    sucks time and matter out of the universe: a white hole returns it.
    LISTER: So, that thing's spewing time back into the universe? (He dons
    his fur-lined hat.)
    KRYTEN: Precisely. That's why we're experiencing these curious time
    phenomena on board.
    CAT: So, what is it?
    KRYTEN: I've never seen one before -- no one has -- but I'm guessing it's
    a white hole.
    RIMMER: A _white_ hole?
    KRYTEN: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. A black hole
    sucks time and matter out of the universe: a white hole returns it.
    LISTER: (Minus the hat.) So, that thing's spewing time back into the
    universe? (He dons his fur-lined hat, again.)
    KRYTEN: Precisely. That's why we're experiencing these curious time
    phenomena on board.
    LISTER: What time phenomena?
    KRYTEN: Like just then, when time repeated itself.
    CAT: So, what is it?

    They all stare at him.

    CAT: Only joking.
    LISTER: (Suddenly upright, and minus his hat, again) Okay, so it's
    decided then. We consult Holly.
    CAT: Hey, wait a minute -- I missed the discussion!
    RIMMER: (Suddenly on the bench, where the CAT used to be sitting) We all
    did.
    KRYTEN: (Suddenly on the table previously occupied by LISTER) Time is
    occurring in random pockets. The laws of causality no longer apply.
    An action no longer leads to a consequence.
    CAT: (Back on the bench) So, what is it?
    KRYTEN: I think we've experienced this period of time before, Sir.
    CAT: Only joking.
    KRYTEN: And that one. Since we're no longer affected by the laws of
    causality, we can override these time jumps if we concentrate.
    RIMMER: Look, the only way out of this is to consult Holly.
    CAT: (Snaps fingers) I'll go with that.
    KRYTEN: Gets my vote.
    LISTER: Okay, so it's decided then. We consult Holly.
    KRYTEN: Ah, I think we've just encountered the middle of this
    conversation!
    CAT: So, what is it?
    LISTER: Ooh, someone punch him out. Bring Holly up.
    KRYTEN: She only has two minutes left. Perhaps I should talk to her.
    RIMMER: Leave this to me, Kryten. (To terminal) On.

    HOLLY fades into being on the viewscreen.

    RIMMER: (All in one breath) White hole. Spewing time. Engines dead.
    Air supply low. Advise please.
    HOLLY: Excuse me?
    RIMMER: (Again, as though attempting a world record on the most words
    spoken in one breath) White hole. Spewing time. Engines dead.--
    HOLLY: I can't understand a word you're saying.
    RIMMER: White.
    HOLLY: Yes.
    RIMMER: Hole.
    HOLLY: Right.
    RIMMER: Spewing.
    HOLLY: Yes.
    RIMMER: Time.
    HOLLY: With you.
    RIMMER: Engines dead.
    HOLLY: Oh.
    RIMMER: Air supply low.
    HOLLY: Ah.
    RIMMER: Advise please.
    HOLLY: Right.

    HOLLY fades out again. Instantly the dispenser beneath disgorges a
    credit-card sized piece of plastic.

    KRYTEN: (Taking it.) It's a computer slug. From the format, it looks
    like it's compatible with Starbug's navicomp.
    CAT: So, what is it?
    KRYTEN: I've never seen one before -- no one has -- but I'm guessing it's
    a white hole.
    RIMMER: A _white_ hole?
    KRYTEN: Every action has an equal and opposite--




  • I loved Polymorph:

    Rimmer: Erm, I think we're losing sight of the real issue here, which is: what are we gonna call ourselves? Erm, and I think it comes down to a choice between "The League Against Salivating Monsters" or my own personal preference, which is "The Committee for the Liberation and Integration of Terrifying Organisms and their Rehabilitation Into Society." Erm, one drawback with that: the abbreviation is "CLITORIS."




  • Can't really decide between Stoke Me A Clipper and Blue as preferred episode.

    As for quote:

    "Now this three-dimensional sculpture in particular is quite exquisite. Its simplicity. Its bold, stark lines. Pray, what do you call it?"
    "The light switch."
    "The light switch?"
    "Yes..."
    "I couldn't buy it then?"
    "Not really... I need it to turn the lights on and off."




  • Dimension Jump.

    Smoke me a clipper skipper, ill be back for breakfast.
