Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: At the start of the episode, when Lister says about Rimmer's toe nail clippings, one of Lister's locks is in front of his left shoulder. In the next shot it is gone. (00:02:40)

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When we see Rimmer's Death video, the atomic blast pushes him into the Captain's office. However, in "The End," Holly indicates that the two piles of dust next to each other in the centre of the drive room are Captain Hollister and Rimmer. (00:10:00)

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister tips his socks onto the floor, he throws the bin behind him, near the bunkbeds. But when he picks them up again, the bin has moved over in front and to the right of him. (00:08:20)

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Lister and the Cat are talking to the original Rimmer in the cinema, the new Rimmer enters and argues with the original. The original Rimmer makes hand puppets, while the new Rimmer sits at the front. When Lister does the ippy-dippy, the Rimmers have swapped places. The new Rimmer says that he was there first, without complaint from the original. (00:23:30)

Me2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rimmer enters the cinema, Lister looks round at him and holds his hand up to his mouth. In the next shot, his hand is lowered and the straw is in his mouth. (00:22:20)

Me2 - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: In the sleeping quarters when the cat is courting, he says 'If I believed that for one minute, I'd go crazy'. You can see Lister is mouthing the line. (00:10:50)

Other mistake: When Lister reads Rimmer's diary, he reads the first entry, then his aunt's birthday in July and then the entry for Gazpacho Soup Day in November. Each time he looks for the next entry he flicks though the pages, yet every time he reads, it is from the start of the diary. (00:15:25)

Me2 - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: When Lister goes into Rimmer's new room, there is a slight glitch with the split screen. When Lister is laughing at Rimmer's newspaper headlines on the door, the camera changes and the first frame only has Lister and Rimmer with the scutters. In the next frame the second Rimmer appears and the scutter on the right has moved. (00:06:10)

Answer: Presumably he does, but it's never been used in any material related to the show. He is the only Cat left (as shown in Series 1), so even if he had once had a name, nobody would know it.

Answer: In the book, the Cat finds the concept of a name confusing, as he's convinced he's the center of the universe and the idea that someone wouldn't know who he was is baffling.
