[--------------------------------------------------------------------------] RED DWARF - SERIES 8 [--------------------------------------------------------------------------] EPISODE 3 -- BACK IN THE RED, part 3 [--------------------------------------------------------------------------] Version 1.0 07 - 11 March, 1999 Last update: 28 March, 1999 Raz / raz@mushroom.demon.co.uk http://www.mushroom.demon.co.uk [-- 1 - Model/CGI shot ----------------------------------------------0:00--] [Inside the Tank. Slow zoom towards a huge, segmented, cylindrical tower that houses blocks of cells] [-- 2 - Int. A small cell -------------------------------------------0:08--] [Enter RIMMER, LISTER] [Both look exhausted. RIMMER collapses into a chair by their table, and LISTER wearily attempts the long climb up the ladder to his top bunk] RIMMER One day in this lousy, stinking penal colony and I'm cracking up. Everyone's so deranged and brutal it's frightening. This afternoon I was so depressed I went to see the social worker. [Reaching his bed at last, LISTER lays down gratefully, wincing] LISTER Was he any help? RIMMER Not really; he beat me up. He said I was a whining nancy-boy with girlie white legs, then pummelled me repeatedly with his book, "Showing compassion to inmates". LISTER I thought social workers were supposed to be nice? RIMMER In the end I was so shell-shocked I went to see the priest and explained everything. LISTER What did he say? RIMMER He said I was a whining baby who was missing his mum. Then he beat me up, too. You can still see the crucifix marks in the back of my head. LISTER It's cos we're in G-tower. All the staff are mad, here. One of the guys was saying, though, as a reward for good behaviour, they move you to the luxury block on D-wing. Everything's really nice there; they even shampoo the rats. Groom their tails and everything. RIMMER I must look it up in my Michelin guide to penal Hell-holes. I'm sure it probably gets the full five slop-out buckets. LISTER They've got everything: TV's, music centres... they've even got a trouser press. RIMMER Since when were you interested in a trouser press? You care less about your appearance than a member of the Dutch royal family. LISTER No, I was thinking: if we got moved to a cell with a trouser press, we could make cheese toasties. RIMMER What's this? [RIMMER picks up an envelope from the table in front of him where it sat on top of a book, and opens it] RIMMER "Floor 13 information pack. If privacy is required when using toilet, please wear blindfold." [RIMMER takes out a thick, black blindfold and looks at it blankly. LISTER nods toward the table] LISTER What's the book? [RIMMER picks it up to glance at the cover, then tosses it back] RIMMER Gideon's Bible. LISTER He follows me everywhere, that bloke! I was staying in a hotel once, he left his bible behind there, as well. And two years later, another hotel, dozy git left it behind again! RIMMER Everything is ruined. My career's over, I've no goal, no hope, no life. LISTER Yeah, but how come that's started to get you down now? RIMMER Maybe you hadn't noticed, but we're going to spend the next two years in the brig? Two years with the scum of the universe, hardened criminals, deranged droids, people so unbalanced and debauched they could even get elected as President of the United States. We've got to escape! LISTER Woh! There're security cameras everywhere. [LISTER hauls himself off his bunk and joins RIMMER at the table] LISTER You know that mad geezer with the one eye and the funny tic? He said it was impossible. RIMMER Well he's bound to say that, he was the warden! If only I'd hired a smarter lawyer, instead of the brain-dead, pompous, stupid-haired git I ended up with. LISTER You defended yourself! [RIMMER stares hard at LISTER] RIMMER Yes, and I don't need reminding of that, thank you very much. Two years in the Tank... [RIMMER picks up the blindfold and plods over to the other side of the cell] LISTER Two years... [RIMMER turns and sits down on the toilet, putting on the blindfold, which has the word "ENGAGED" stencilled on it. He grimaces] RIMMER How did I get into this mess? [LISTER notices what RIMMER is doing, and turns away hurriedly] LISTER I think the blindfold's supposed to be for me... [-- 3 - Model/CGI shot -----------------------------------------Raz--3:22--] [Red Dwarf cruises by a colourful starscape] [Text appears over the image: "2 DAYS EARLIER"] [-- 4 - Int. Captain's office ---------------------------------------3:26--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [HOLLISTER is sat at his desk alone facing the camera, talking to the recording computer that he has just activated] HOLLISTER This is the diary of Captain F. Hollister of the mining ship Red Dwarf. Several of my crew are presently being tried for crimes against the Space Corps: [HOLLISTER inserts the following edited video sequence into his diary. The signal crackles momentarily with static, clearing to:] [-- 5 - Int. Courtroom ----------------------------------------------3:34--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, two BAILIFFS, CAPTAIN HOLLISTER, CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER KAREN NEWTON, CHIEF ENGINEER present] HOLLISTER Are you familiar with the mind scan? LISTER We are familiar with the mind scan, sir. HOLLISTER You understand that it will involve the administration of psychotropic drugs, that is, drugs that affect your mental state, making this process possible? If you accept, say 'aye'. KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER Aye. HOLLISTER Please sign the consent forms and seal them into the envelopes provided. We reconvene at 10am tomorrow. [The four Dwarfers, having signed their forms and slid them into the envelopes, lick the glue seal and resign themselves to the Captain's tests] [-- 6 - Int. Captain's office ---------------------------------------4:04--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER To test the voracity of their defence, unknown to them, I've had them placed in artificial reality where their - [The following three video sequences are pasted in] [-- 7 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber -----------------------------4:08--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT present] HOLLISTER [VO] - actions can be observed. [The hapless Dwarfers each stand at an A.R. interface point. Eyes closed, their hands twitch spasmodically around dual feedback joysticks] [-- 8 - Int. Corridor aboard Red Dwarf ------------------------------4:15--] [Enter KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER] [We watch a flashback of events we've seen before. The Dwarfs emerge, Reservoir Dogs style, from a side corridor in their Dibbley togs. Of course, now we know that this is all a psychotropically-generated, consensually shared fantasy] [-- 9 - Int. Captain's table ----------------------------------------4:27--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER, CMO, three other FEMALE OFFICERS, two other MALE OFFICERS present] HOLLISTER Right now, they believe they're escaping, but we just want to observe what they do... RIMMER So, that means, that if anyone happens to mention any... special agreements... that they've entered into -- Could you excuse me? I think I... left the iron on... [Exit RIMMER] [-- 10 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------4:45--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER Rimmer, one of the least able of my crew - [-- 11 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------4:48--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER, RIMMER present] [HOLLISTER has selected a recording of RIMMER's embarrassingly lengthy salute to illustrate his appraisal] [-- 12 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------4:54--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER - has started acting very suspiciously, being incredibly insightful, and efficient. [-- 13 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------4:59--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER, RIMMER present] [Here HOLLISTER selects footage from the same meeting, and we see RIMMER place the folder containing his report on Drive Plate safety procedure on the CAPTAIN's desk before returning to attention] [-- 14 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------5:02--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER I suspect he may have access to the crew's confidential files. We also believe he may be in possession of a virus, which makes him incredibly attractive to the opposite sex. This is obviously a remarkable serum and, as a responsible senior officer of the Space Corps., it's imperative I gain possession of this solution and use some myself. [-- 15 - Int. Galley ------------------------------------------------5:21--] [HOLLISTER's remarkable guesswork concerning the Sexual Magnetism virus is partially justified as we see him insert into his diary security camera footage of the ship's CMO jumping RIMMER's bones...] CMO Oh - my - god - you are sexy! So very, very sexy! [The CMO shoves RIMMER through a door into an adjoining cramped room marked 'Captain's Galley' [Exit RIMMER, CMO] [-- 16 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------5:31--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER Yesterday he was observed injecting his groin with anaesthetic - [-- 17 - Int. Medical office ----------------------------------------5:35--] [RIMMER present] HOLLISTER [VO] - something we believe he did to regain some self-control. [Once again, we see RIMMER checking the contents of a hypodermic and emptying the contents into his nether-regions] [-- 18 - Int. Corridor aboard Red Dwarf -----------------------------5:38--] [Enter RIMMER] [RIMMER begins to lose feeling in his legs, they appear to turn rubbery and RIMMER begins to have trouble walking. He blunders awkwardly along the corridor] [Enter three FEMALE CREW MEMBERS] RIMMER Hi. FEMALE CREW MEMBERS Hi... [-- 19 - Int. Captain's office --------------------------------------5:54--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLISTER I also suspect someone, possibly Lister, has given Rimmer access to the crew's confidential files, and he's using this information to blackmail his way up the chain of command. It's sickening, it's unforgivable, but it's a technique that can work. I should know: I used the same method myself to become Captain. If the crew discover I'm really just Dennis the donut boy, I'm finished. I will continue to observe Lister's actions in AR and expect my suspicions to be confirmed. Report ends. [The images collapses as HOLLISTER shuts off the camera] [-- 20 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber ----------------------------6:26--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT present] [The Dwarfers are still hooked up to A.R. interfaces, their actions translated into jerks on the control sticks. A video screen between LISTER and KRYTEN displays the scene inside the simulation. On it we see CAT, dressed in Dibbley costume, pushing a cart] [-- 21 - Int. Red Dwarf landing bay ---------------------------------6:28--] [CAT present] [CAT is still wearing his Dibbley disguise and is pushing a large cart, over which a white sheet is draped. Two Skutters flank him] FLIGHT CONTROLLER [VO] T minus eighteen seconds -- [-- 22 - Int. Red Dwarf landing bay hangar section ------------------6:33--] [Three Blue Midget craft parked and inactive in the hangar section] FLIGHT CONTROLLER [VO] -- and counting; engines start. [-- 23 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------6:35--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [The four take stations at the various control consoles inside Blue Midget. Like its parent ship, Blue Midget has also undergone substantial restructuring during the nanobot rebuild. No longer the cramped, darkened control centre of old, the new cockpit is expansive - approximately 10ft square, with a main bank of helm controls stretching across the front of the cockpit, and a secondary bank of logistics and navigation control equipment build into a long desk behind the pilots chairs. CAT immediately slips behind the helm controls while KRYTEN and KOCHANSKI take stations a the secondary controls desk. LISTER disappears behind the desk too, beside KOCHANSKI] [-- 24 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------6:38--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [A GROUND CONTROLLER, stationed in a small control booth and surrounded by banks of illuminated controls and data screens, checks over her status displays] [-- 25 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------6:40--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] GROUND CONTROLLER [VO] This is Ground Control to Midget 3 - [-- 26 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------6:44--] GROUND CONTROLLER - you don't appear to have flight clearance. Please state your name and clearance code. [-- 27 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------6:48--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] CAT Ground Control, this is, er... [As CAT hesitates, LISTER pops his head up from behind the control desk] LISTER Major Tom! CAT Yeah! Major Tom - [LISTER nods approvingly and sinks back out of sight] [-- 28 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------6:53--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER Major Tom, what is your clearance code and pilot number? [-- 29 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------6:56--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] CAT I'm sorry, I left all my details in my other pants. [CAT winces, hoping the evasion will succeed] [-- 30 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------7:01--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [The CONTROLLER presses a hand to her earpiece, frowning suspiciously] GROUND CONTROLLER I'm sorry, I didn't catch that. [-- 31 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------7:03--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [A small viewscreen crackles to life on the panel next to CAT, displaying an image of the young and beautiful GROUND CONTROLLER. CAT is blown away] CAT Woooowwww! [-- 32 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------7:05--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [She rolls her eyes disparagingly] GROUND CONTROLLER Without takeoff clearance I can't permit you to fly. [-- 33 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------7:09--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] CAT I can handle this thing, okay. I'm good. I'm better than good, I'm smoooooth, with a capital 'Smooooo'. [-- 34 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------7:18--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [She chuckles as CAT grins around his huge dentures] GROUND CONTROLLER Well that's as maybe, but I need a little proof you can fly that thing. [-- 35 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------7:22--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] CAT Fly!? I can make this thing dance! [-- 36 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------7:25--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [The CONTROLLER nods, disbelieving] [-- 37 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------7:26--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [CAT rapidly taps a sequence of commands into the keyboard in front of him, snaps his fingers, then uncovers Blue Midget's throttles and powers up. As the little transport craft rises to its feet, CAT dashes from his station, pauses at the rear of the cockpit to collect a metal tray, under the puzzled gazes of his crew mates, and heads out. Blue Midget straightens a leg as CAT emerges, and he slides effortlessly down the limb to the hanger deck. Dusting himself off as the GROUND CONTROLLER looks on, CAT executes a short tap sequence, then offers the floor to Blue Midget. The ungainly machine duplicates the sequence precisely, its alloy foot pads clanging noisily on the deck. After a second sequence carried out first by CAT then by Blue Midget, CAT leaps behind one of the ship's metal legs, sheds his Dibbley costume, and emerges in a sharp, glittering blue suit and tap shoes. CAT and Blue Midget now perform a smoothly choreographed duet of complex tap steps, though when CAT raps a toe-cap sharply on Blue Midget's foot pad at the end of one routine, the machine glares down at him, swings a leg and sends CAT sailing through the air to land at the other end of the hangar. Not dissuaded, CAT comes back in full effect, snapping his finger, he wakes the three other parked Midgets who form us as backing dancers as CAT and the first Midget cary out a complex sequence of dance steps becoming more and more elaborate and fast-paced with each passing moment. Not even the resounding crash of glass-work exploding from the ranks of Ground Controller's booths as Blue Midget's feet crash down onto the deck during a particularly energetic set piece are enough to break the rhythm, and CAT's set reaches its conclusion as he jumps up onto a foot pad held out by the ship, which it then uses to propel him up in to the air. Gracefully, without a hair out of place, CAT slips through a roof hatch and lands in the pilots chair inside the cockpit] [-- 55 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station -----------------Raz--9:50--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] [The GROUND CONTROLLER shakes her head in amazement] GROUND CONTROLLER Wow! [-- 56 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit -----------------------------------9:52--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [CAT produces a large stogie, takes a draw on the cigar and blows a smoke ring] CAT You free Saturday? [-- 57 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ----------------------9:59--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER I am now. [-- 58 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------10:01--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [CAT starts as the logistics suddenly present themselves] CAT Holy-shmoly! I got a date in three day's time; I better start getting ready! LISTER You're going nowhere, man, we are outta here! [LISTER taps on his keyboard and yanks hard on Blue Midget's throttles] [-- 59 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------10:11--] [Blue Midget paws the ground like a charging bull, then lurches gracelessly out of the hanger section and down a launching tube] [-- 60 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------10:19--] [Red Dwarf is left behind as Blue Midget arcs out into Deep Space] [-- 61 - Int. Corridor about Red Dwarf -----------------------------10:24--] [MP THORNTON present] [THORNTON stands security outside a hatchway, stencilled above which is a plaque reading "AR SUITE / SUITO"] [Enter RIMMER] [The MP hears RIMMER clomping awkwardly along the corridor on his numbed legs, and watches him approach disdainfully] RIMMER Thornton - THORNTON No one's allowed in there, Rimmer. Beat it. [RIMMER leans slightly toward THORNTON and stares at him] RIMMER Angus Thornton, age thirty-six, middle name 'Lionel'. [RIMMER jerks away, perhaps expecting the other man to take a swing at him. When THORNTON merely looks at him, RIMMER comes closer again] RIMMER Inside leg measurement: twenty-nine, neck size: sixteen; *circumcised*. [RIMMER jerks away again and THORNTON stares at RIMMER incredulously] THORNTON How do you know all this? [Gaining confidence, RIMMER bobs closer, delivering the coup de grace] RIMMER Jazz fan. Good credit rating. Once admitted to hospital totally naked and attached to - [Here RIMMER leans in close to THORNTON's ear and hisses quietly] RIMMER - the suction end of a vacuum cleaner. THORNTON That's a vicious, slanderous, filthy, stinking, slanderous lie that you just made up! Who told you? RIMMER Want all the crew to know? Take a cigarette break; five minutes. THORNTON Okay, I'm going, okay. I'm lighting up already, I'm going. [Exit THORNTON] [RIMMER backs through the hatchway, looking up and down the corridor for unwanted eyes, then darts through] [-- 62 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------11:15--] [Blue Midget streaks through space, toward a nebula and nearby moon] [-- 63 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------11:19--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] LISTER Now all we've got to do is get a bearing on those damn nano's - [-- 64 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber ---------------------------11:22--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT present] [Behind LISTER is a video screen portraying the scene inside Blue Midget as we just saw it] LISTER [on video screen] - and we're cruising down Freedom Boulevard. [Enter RIMMER] [RIMMER waddles in from the corridor and stops by the A.R. computer interface panel] KRYTEN [on video screen] Getting something now, sir. LISTER [on video screen] Good. We didn't need that confidential files scam I cooked up with Rimmer after all. All that stuff I gave him on the Captain... Double-dealing, two-faced rat! [RIMMER watches these events on the screen and begins typing commands on the interface panel, speaking aloud as he does so] RIMMER Find - all - references - to - the - agreement - between - Lister - and - Rimmer - and - remove! [The word "REMOVED" appears on the video screen and flashes] A.R. COMPUTER [VO] "All references removed." [RIMMER sighs with relief] [-- 65 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------11:52--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] [HOLLY present, on a viewscreen in the cockpit] [As LISTER checks his control panel, the world suddenly seems to 'jump-cut', as if several seconds of time had just been snipped out] LISTER What was that? Something weird just happened... KOCHANSKI Yeah, I felt it, too. [Another jump-cut manifests, and CAT is left facing in the opposite direction] CAT There it was again! [The same thing happens to HOLLY] HOLLY And again. KRYTEN Oh, my. LISTER What is it? KRYTEN I don't believe I'm here. KOCHANSKI I have that feeling all the time. KRYTEN I have it. I believe we're in some kind of computer-manipulated, psychotropically induced mind state. [-- 66 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------12:12--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY You took the words right out of my mouth. [-- 67 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------12:15--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, 2 SKUTTERS present] KOCHANSKI You mean this is our trial? Our escape is our trial? LISTER The envelopes... When we signed the consent forms... there must have been some kind of drug on the gluey bit we licked. CAT So you mean nothing's been real since then? Blue Midget? The Ground Controller? None of that was real? You mean after all this, I still haven't got a date?? Damn! Another year when I have to sent a Valentine's card to my hand... LISTER No, this good, this is good! It proves we're innocent! Everything we've said and done: escaping, trying to track down the nano's; it corroborates our story! [-- 68 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------12:49--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY But you are guilty, guys! Who are you fooling? [HOLLY immediately looks startled and casts his eyes about] HOLLY I dunno why I said that. [-- 69 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber ---------------------------12:55--] [RIMMER, LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT present] [RIMMER taps more commands into the interface panel] [-- 70 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------12:58--] [KRYTEN, CAT, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, HOLLY, 2 SKUTTERS present] KOCHANSKI We're being framed... [Another jump-cut, and KRYTEN and KOCHANSKI have switched places] KOCHANSKI Wait a minute, what's happening? I just said "we're being framed" and suddenly - [Yet another jump-cut - KRYTEN suddenly finds himself standing staring at the rear wall of the cockpit] LISTER It just happened again! Everything we say's being -- [Reality jump-cuts once more, returning KRYTEN and KOCHANSKI to their original positions] KRYTEN Bananas. LISTER If I say who I think's responsible for this it'll get cut too, so I'm not going to, but it's him. I know it's him, you can bet on it, and if I ever catch up to him, I'm gonna cut off both his b-- [A reality jump-cut mercifully spares us the gory details of RIMMER's fate] LISTER -- blunt knife. CAT So how do we stop him? KRYTEN If we're plugged into A.R. software there must be a 'trap door' built into the program somewhere to allow escape. CAT You mean to help you get out if the program freezes? KRYTEN Precisely. There'll be a cryptic clue around somewhere, something like a trap door or exit... [The Dwarfers begin to search around the cockpit] CAT I got it! There's a button here with 'E' - 'eleven' - 'T' written on it. [The rest of the Dwarfers stare at CAT blankly] KRYTEN And? CAT Eleven is 'XI' in Roman numerals. E - XI - T; 'EXIT'! [LISTER glances around disbelievingly] LISTER *He* got *that*? KRYTEN I think it proves, without a shadow of a doubt, this is not reality! [The two SKUTTERS applaud CAT from their corner of the cockpit] KOCHANSKI Press it. [Smiling smugly, CAT reaches out and presses the button. As he does so, the picture elongates vertically, changes, then slides back into focus] [-- 71 - Stop-motion animated sequence -----------------------------14:11--] [CAT, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, LISTER present] [The scene is a barren, snowy plain, below a clear blue sky. Amazingly, the Dwarfers appear to be constructed from plasticene! CAT faces away from the camera and frustratedly waves his arms in juddering stop-motion] CAT Now where are we? [CAT spins around, and more of the strange landscape is revealed. More barren plains, that is. Only a small igloo nearby breaks the monotony] KRYTEN Well, somehow we've wound up in the screen saver! [Behind KRYTEN, CAT loses his footing on the snow, sliding across the ground and into the igloo, before thudding against its inner wall] KOCHANSKI We need to locate a power source so we can switch the A.R. machine off. [Away from the others, LISTER is laid on his stomach, investigating a large circular hole] LISTER A power source? A.R.? There has to be a clue around here somewhere. Maybe it's in this ice hole? [He peers down into the depths, and a huge plasticene shark suddenly rears up in front of him, growling in annoyance. The shark swallows LISTER whole and slips back down into the water under the ice. Moments later it pops back out and unceremoniously ejects LISTER from its throat, sending him sailing through the air, and lolls out a large tongue in disgust] [CAT pops his head out of the igloo] CAT There's some food in here! KOCHANSKI So? CAT Including a bottle of ketchup... [CAT draws forth a large red bottle with a white label. On the label are the peculiarly spelt words 'Tomato Source', and a large black arrow] LISTER So? [LISTER tries to dust off his coating of snow, and CAT waggles the bottle meaningfully] CAT Power ketchup, get it? KRYTEN What's to get? CAT Power sauce! LISTER Pity he's only smart when he's made out of plasticene..! KOCHANSKI Press it! [-- 72 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber ---------------------------15:06--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT, RIMMER present] [The A.R. program shuts down, the interface ports deactivate and the Dwarfers regain consciousness. RIMMER desperately stabs buttons on the interface panel] LISTER Ohhhh... ohhhh... [LISTER hears the noise of RIMMER's efforts and glances up, noticing him] LISTER You back-stabbin', weaselly smegger! You were trying to frame us! RIMMER Listy! Just the man. Now, I know, at first glance, this may look bad -- [RIMMER abandons the interface panel and waddles toward LISTER. Pheromones enhanced by the Sexual Magnetism virus waft out in search of susceptible targets, and find...] KOCHANSKI God, he's gorgeous... RIMMER Ohh, hold her back, please, hold her, please! No more, no more! KOCHANSKI Oh those nostrils! They're driving me crazy, I've simply got to have them! [KOCHANSKI advances on RIMMER; LISTER grabs her arm and digs in his heels] LISTER Hold her back, Kryten! Help me! [-- 73 - Int. Service elevator -------------------------------------15:37--] [Enter RIMMER, KOCHANSKI, LISTER, KRYTEN, CAT] [RIMMER stumbles into a decrepit service elevator, soon followed by the other Dwarfers who are dragged along by a rampant KOCHANSKI] KRYTEN Mister Cat, sir, put the lift on hold! [CAT breaks off from helping restrain the head-tossing KOCHANSKI and slaps the lift's Hold button] KOCHANSKI I want his babies! LISTER The Luck virus, have you still got it? Take some! It'll cure the virus, and restore you both to normal. [RIMMER uncorks the Luck virus and takes a swig. Instantly, the sexually charged pheromones discharged by the Sexual Magnetism virus dissipate and KOCHANSKI regains control of her basic instincts. She turns away, covering her face] KOCHANSKI Oh god, that's so embarrassing... LISTER What now, Holl? [LISTER presses a stud on his HOLLY-watch, calling up HOLLY's image on the lift's communications viewscreen] [Enter HOLLY] [The Dwarfers move to take places in the seats set against the lift walls] [-- 74 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------16:10--] HOLLY No time to lose, you should head for the nearest one of these: [HOLLY's image slides down the screen until only the top of his bald head is visible, blue lighting illuminates him and a starscape appears behind him] [-- 75 - Int. Service elevator -------------------------------------16:17--] [ALL present] LISTER You mean a moon? [-- 76 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------16:18--] [HOLLY present] [HOLLY's image shoots back into its normal position and he grins happily] HOLLY Exactly. [-- 77 - Int. Service elevator -------------------------------------16:20--] [ALL present] KRYTEN He's right. We can regroup there and continue our search for the nano's. RIMMER What about me? KRYTEN Well, suggest we persuade you to come with us, sir, or, failing that, we bludgeon you unconscious. CAT Him, come with us? Are you out of your mind? That's so dumb I should've said it! KRYTEN Well, Mister Rimmer has had access to the confidential files, sir. He knows all the security codes. Without him, our chances of escape are about as remote as meeting an interesting hairdresser called Kylie. RIMMER Why would I want to take off with you lot? What have you got to offer? KRYTEN Well, I'm very good at laundry, sir. [KRYTEN smiles sincerely] [-- 78 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------16:53--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY I do a damn fine moon impression. [-- 79 - Int. Service elevator -------------------------------------16:56--] [ALL present] CAT I'm so gorgeous, there's a six month waiting list for birds to suddenly appear, every time I am near. KRYTEN And you know what they say, sir: "if you've got three good friends, you're a rich man". RIMMER Only poor people say that. CAT Forget it, he's not gonna change his mind. KRYTEN He's right, time is of the essence. The crew will know we're out of A.R. now and are probably sending someone to investigate. [LISTER gets up and heads across the lift to sit beside RIMMER] LISTER So, what's it to be? RIMMER Look, if I leave I'm always going to be a failure. The shame of it. Every time I have a boiled egg, knowing I don't even outrank the toastie soldiers. I want to be an officer, a man of honour. LISTER Officers aren't men of honour, they're headcases. Those induction pranks they play when you qualify? [RIMMER looks into the middle-distance, his eyes far-away] RIMMER I've dreamt of that proud day for years now. As I wake up after the celebration party and find that my pubes are orange and I'm handcuffed to a goat. And, most hilarious of all, discovering someone's superglued me to the rear of one of those rabbits that whizzes around greyhound tracks. Ahhhhhhh, those mad japes they play on you! I can't miss all that! LISTER But that's not gonna happen for you now, man. Just like it didn't happen for the other Rimmer. [-- 80 - Computer viewscreen ---------------------------------------18:11--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY We're giving you a second chance at life, and an opportunity for you to screw it up in a new and original way. [-- 81 - Int. Service elevator -------------------------------------18:19--] [ALL present] KRYTEN You'll get your own seat in the cockpit, and you'll be in control of at least five buttons... KOCHANSKI Krytie, don't be pathetic, he's hardly going to be impressed at the prospect of being in charge of a few buttons... RIMMER Five, you say? LISTER No more vending machine maintenance. No more getting heckled by drinks dispensers. RIMMER That's five whole buttons? KOCHANSKI A new start, a new life? LISTER You'll wake up in the morning... you'll want to leap out of bed! KRYTEN Well, in your case, Mister Lister, sir, that's because your sheets are full of pointy poppadum shards! RIMMER Tell me more about these buttons; are some illuminated? LISTER What do you say, man? The old Rimmer was a vital member of the team! He performed essential functions we've never replaced. RIMMER What did he do? LISTER I dunno, really. He, erm... he was, erm... he was, erm... [LISTER looks around, hoping for someone to bail him out, but none of the others appear to have any ideas] LISTER Ah! Head of Safety! RIMMER "Head of Safety", that's a hell of a title! [RIMMER's eyebrows raise, impressed, as he considers this. Then he frowns] RIMMER But what did he actually do? [LISTER again glances away, thinking fast] LISTER He sought out danger; he sought out peril. Then he advised us the best way to run away from it. RIMMER Head of Safety; five buttons? [RIMMER weighs his options] RIMMER I'm in! CAT He's in? Let's celebrate! I'll crack open a bottle of cyanide! [-- 82 - CGI/Model shot ---------------------------------------Raz--19:38--] [In the hanger section of Red Dwarf's landing bay three Blue Midget craft are parked quietly] [-- 83 - CGI / Live action composite -------------------------------19:40--] [Red Dwarf's landing bay] [Enter RIMMER] [RIMMER strides across the landing bay towards the hangar, checking behind him to make sure the other Dwarfers still follow] [Exit RIMMER] [Enter CAT, LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI] [The four scurry along behind RIMMER, casting glances around to see if they've been spotted] [Exit CAT, LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI] [-- 84 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------19:46--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [The Dwarfers take their seats and begin powering up their Blue Midget] [-- 85 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------19:49--] [In the hangar area, one of the Blue Midget craft rises to its feet] [-- 86 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------19:50--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [Working at his console, CAT suddenly notices the small viewscreen flicker into life, and does a double-take. It's the GROUND CONTROLLER, but not as we know her; she seems to have aged 30 years or so, most of them apparently spent eating] GROUND CONTROLLER [on viewscreen] This is Ground Control. [-- 87 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ---------------------19:54--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER You don't appear to have flight clearance. [-- 88 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------19:58--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] CAT You're the ground controller? [-- 89 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ---------------------20:00--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER Please state your name and clearance code. [-- 90 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------20:04--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [CAT glances at LISTER is disgust] CAT Reality sucks! [-- 91 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ---------------------20:06--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER Your name's "Reality Sucks"?? [The CONTROLLER cackles heartily] GROUND CONTROLLER One second, Mister Sucks. [-- 92 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------20:12--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [CAT exchanges a worried glance with LISTER] [-- 93 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ---------------------20:14--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER Just checking my clearance lists... [-- 94 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------20:16--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] LISTER Look, just do another smegging dance and we'll get the hell out of here! CAT Dance? With her I'd have trouble walking! Powering up! [CAT throws Blue Midget's launching throttles into 'maximum lurch' and G-forces push them backwards as the ship charges] [-- 95 - CGI/Model Shot --------------------------------------------20:27--] [Blue Midget charges drunkenly along a launch tube, 'arms' flailing] [-- 96 - Int. Red Dwarf Ground Control station ---------------------20:30--] [GROUND CONTROLLER present] GROUND CONTROLLER Come back Mister Sucks, come back! [-- 97 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------20:33--] [Blue Midget speeds away from the lumbering Red Dwarf] [-- 98 - CGI/Model shot --------------------------------------------20:38--] [Blue midget heads off alone into space] [-- 99 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ----------------------------------20:42--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] KOCHANSKI There's nothing on the scanner for a thousand mile radius... We're in the clear, guys! LISTER Yes, oh yes! KRYTEN I don't believe we are, ma'am... CAT What's up? KRYTEN According to the supplies inventory we're frighteningly low on... oh, and everyone was so happy, I can barely say it out loud... RIMMER What are we frighteningly low on? Oxygen? KRYTEN Worse! Fabric softener! Suggest we chart a course to the nearest derelict, the SS Einstein... before everyone's woolens get all bibbly-bobbly! CAT Einstein? Wasn't he the dude who discovered America? RIMMER Einstein discovered the Theory of Relativity. CAT Where did he discover it? Was it fossilised, and stuff? [RIMMER draws in breath and prepares to lecture] RIMMER The Theory of Relativity is... [RIMMER breaks off, eyes casting around for inspiration. Finally, he gives up] RIMMER What is the Theory of Relativity? [LISTER looks up at the computer viewscreen above their heads] LISTER Yeah, what is it, Holl? [-- 100 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------21:33--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY Bit busy at the moment, Dave. [-- 101 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------21:36--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] LISTER Well, just tell us what is is in, sort of, simple layman's terms. [-- 102 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------21:39--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY It's a theory. [-- 103 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------21:41--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] LISTER Yeah, but what is it? [-- 104 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------21:43--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY Oh, you want it more complicated than that, do you? [-- 105 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------21:46--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] LISTER What does it mean? [-- 106 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------21:47--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY It's the Theory of Relativity. You know, it's the theory you only tell your relatives. [-- 107 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------21:56--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] RIMMER It's so sad. Holly's supposed to have an I.Q. of 6000. Now, I doubt he could even spell I.Q. [-- 108 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:02--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY If I'm so stupid, if I'm computer senile, explain this then. [-- 109 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:06--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [There is a pause. HOLLY does not elaborate] CAT Explain what? [-- 110 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:09--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY You can't, can you. [-- 111 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:12--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [LISTER exchanges glances with the others] LISTER Explain what?? [-- 112 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:16--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY It's no good stalling, trying to buy time. If I'm so stupid, explain why I was able to re-create a new set of nanobots and get them to resurrect the crew. [-- 113 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:27--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [All five stare up at the viewscreen] RIMMER What? LISTER Eh? KOCHANSKI What? KRYTEN What? [-- 114 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:29--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY I thought you'd be pleased. [-- 115 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:31--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] CAT But why? [-- 116 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:33--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY My job is to keep Dave sane. True, I'm not that good at it, but I do my best. That's why I create these little diversions to keep him occupied. [-- 117 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:42--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] LISTER But Holl, we could have wound up doing two years in the brig! [-- 118 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:46--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY Still could. I've just worked it out, we're still in A.R. [-- 119 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------22:51--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] ALL What? [-- 120 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------22:53--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY In computer jargon: my plans have all gone tits-up. [-- 121 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------22:57--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [HOLLISTER is sat at his desk, watching events unfold on a large viewscreen on the wall at the opposite end of his office] [-- 122 - Blue-framed computer viewscreen --------------------------23:00--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] [This version of HOLLY appears much like our own, except that his head is elongated at the top, giving him a large forehead with texture mapping that warps strangely as his head moves up and down] [-- 123 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------23:02--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLY [on viewscreen] I was out-thought, and out-manoeuvred. LISTER [on viewscreen] Who by? [-- 124 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------23:05--] HOLLY By a superior intellect. [-- 125 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------23:07--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] CAT You mean the hand-dryer in the men's toilets has outsmarted you again? [-- 126 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------23:13--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY No, by that - [-- 127 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------23:14--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] HOLLY [on viewscreen] - other version of me, the one on - [-- 128 - Blue-framed computer viewscreen --------------------------23:16--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] HOLLY [VO] - Red Dwarf. This is - [-- 129 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------23:17--] [HOLLY present] HOLLY - still our trial. [-- 130 - Int. Blue Midget cockpit ---------------------------------23:18--] [CAT, KRYTEN, RIMMER, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] CAT Our trial?? Why didn't you say? If I'd have known, I'd have worn a tie! [-- 131 - Int. Captain's office -------------------------------Raz--23:23--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [Enter R.D. HOLLY] [As HOLLISTER finishes watching, the image of the A.R. simulation on the viewscreen is cleared with a diagonal wipe and is replaced by the image of Red Dwarf's HOLLY] HOLLISTER Well, for me, Lister's nanobots story is corroborated. They were trying to track 'em down. Their actions in the psychotropically induced scenario bear that out. R.D. HOLLY I agree Frank. I also believe we died, and were, indeed, resurrected. [-- 132 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------23:40--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] R.D. HOLLY Again, borne out by their actions. [-- 133 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------23:42--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [R.D. HOLLY present, on viewscreen] HOLLISTER So, original charges: all innocent. But, its equally apparent that they used classified information from the crew's confidential files to their own ends. I suspected Rimmer had access the moment he walked into my office and began acting incredibly smart and knowledgeable. [-- 134 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------23:59--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] [The computer's image smiles at the thought] R.D. HOLLY What a giveaway. [-- 135 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------24:02--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [R.D. HOLLY present, on viewscreen] HOLLISTER That's why I got him to lick one of the psychotropic envelopes when I invited him to dinner. [-- 136 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------24:07--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] R.D. HOLLY So, abusing classified information. That's a fresh charge. [-- 137 - Int. Captain's office ------------------------------------24:11--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [R.D. HOLLY present, on viewscreen] HOLLISTER And on that, they're all guilty. [-- 138 - Computer viewscreen --------------------------------------24:13--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] R.D. HOLLY That's a statutory sentence. [-- 139 - Int. Captain's office -----------------------------------24:15--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [R.D. HOLLY present, on viewscreen] HOLLISTER I know. Two years in the brig. [-- 140 - Computer viewscreen -------------------------------------24:16--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] R.D. HOLLY So, instead of the original charge and a possible sentence of two years in the brig - [-- 141 - Int. Captain's office -----------------------------------24:21--] [CAPTAIN HOLLISTER present] [R.D. HOLLY present, on viewscreen] R.D. HOLLY - they've been found guilty on another charge, and got an entirely different two years in the brig. [-- 142 - Computer viewscreen -------------------------------------24:27--] [Red Dwarf HOLLY present] R.D. HOLLY That's going to be a great comfort to them. I'll bring them around, and break the news. [-- 143 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber --------------------------24:36--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT, RIMMER present] [Again we see the Dwarfers hooked up to the A.R. interfaces, and this time RIMMER occupies an interface point too. The simulation shuts down for real, the control sticks retracting into their housings, and the Dwarfer's regain normal consciousness] RIMMER This is reality? But how can we be sure? CAT Why do we care? Nothing makes any sense no matter where we are. LISTER Look, everything was real before we licked the envelopes, right? Then we conked out, and got carted off to A.R. Before we licked *anything*... before we licked anything... I lent you my Holly watch! RIMMER So if this is reality, I should still be wearing it... [-- 144 - Composite shot -------------------------------------------25:03--] [HOLLY present] [Closeup of RIMMER's wristwatch, HOLLY's head is superimposed onto the face] HOLLY Oh yeah, this is reality, all right. I'd recognise it anywhere. [-- 145 - Int. Artificial Reality chamber --------------------------25:08--] [LISTER, KRYTEN, KOCHANSKI, CAT, RIMMER present] KRYTEN Also, sir, shouldn't you have the viruses? Again, you found them on Starbug before we licked the envelopes. [RIMMER takes out the two test tubes to confirm, then holds up the blue Luck virus, studying the contents of the tube] RIMMER The Luck virus; maybe we can still get out of this mess... [Enter HOLLISTER] [Like a true cartoon villain, HOLLISTER swipes the Luck virus before RIMMER can react] HOLLISTER I'll have that. The lab boys are gonna want to run tests on it. [Out of sight, RIMMER surreptitiously hands the Sexual Magnetism virus to LISTER] HOLLISTER Where's the other one? RIMMER I'm afraid I lost it, sir. HOLLISTER God damn it, Rimmer! I wanted that! Er, I mean, the lab boys wanted it, to, er, test it, too. Damn! [Exit HOLLISTER] KOCHANSKI This is all your fault. RIMMER My fault? KOCHANSKI You betrayed us over that confidential files scam - LISTER Stole the Sexual Magnetism virus - KRYTEN You lied to us - KOCHANSKI And generally behaved like a self-serving, scum-sucking, ruthless little ratbag! RIMMER And that's bad? [-- 146 - Int. Holding cells ---------------------------------------25:55--] [CAT, RIMMER, KRYTEN, LISTER, KOCHANSKI present] [HOLLY present, displayed on a mobile monitor beside KOCHANSKI] [The humanoid Dwarfers are all dressed in featureless grey jumpsuits, and are lined up against a wall marked with height lines. Each holds a board on which is stencilled their prisoner number. The board displaying HOLLY's number sits on top of his monitor casing] HOLLISTER [VO] It is the finding of this enquiry that you have been found guilty of contravening Act 21 of the Space Federation. Before sentencing, you will have medicals so you can be assigned appropriate prison status. HOLLY I've buggered this up a bit, haven't I. [-- 147 - Int. Elevator --------------------------------------------26:12--] [Close up on control panel in the lift wall. Beside the buttons marked with floor numbers is an inset panel coloured with black and yellow chevrons and labelled "Authorised personnel only". A gloved hand enters the shot, inserts a key into a lock set into the panel and turns it, sliding open the cover of a previously hidden button. The button is marked with the number 13. The gloved hand presses the button, which illuminates, then re-locks the cover] [-- 148 - CGI/Model shot -------------------------------------------26:17--] [The elevator speeds down its shaft] [-- 149 - Int. Floor 13 penal colony -------------------------------26:22--] [We look down from a ledge overlooking a vast cylindrical chamber. Walkways at various levels circle the chamber, and a group of people standing in lines can be made out at the bottom] [-- 150 - Int. Floor 13 penal colony induction area -----------------x:xx--] [PRISONERS, WARDENS, GOVENOR present] [Enter RIMMER, LISTER, CAT, KRYTEN] [The Dwarfers make their way uneasily between the ranks of hard-faced prisoners. RIMMER stands in the front-most line, LISTER in the row behind him, KRYTEN and CAT behind him somewhere, out of sight] GOVENOR Welcome to the Tank... [As the lines wait patiently, LISTER creeps up behind RIMMER, takes out the tube of Sexual Magnetism virus and sprinkles it liberally across RIMMER's shoulder before shuffling away. Unaware, RIMMER slowly begins to notice the inmates around him casting glances in his direction, then moving closer with disturbing smiles on their faces. As pairs of grimy hands begin to fasten around his body parts, RIMMER succumbs to panic and the scene mercifully disappears from sight...] [------------------------ END OF "BACK IN THE RED" -----------------26:54--] [CAST REFERENCE] RIMMER LISTER CAT Chris Barrie Craig Charles Danny John-Jules KRYTEN KOCHANSKI HOLLY Robert Llewellyn Chloe Annett Norman Lovett CAPTAIN [HOLLISTER] [GOVENOR] ACKERMAN 1st GROUND CONTROLLER Mac McDonald Graham McTavish Yasmin Bannerman 2nd GROUND CONTROLLER MP THORNTON Jeillo Edwards Karl Glenn Stimpson [Transcribed and narrated by Raz from the original episode by Doug Naylor; no copyright infringement or toe-stepping intended.
