Red Dwarf

Quarantine - S5-E4

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, the Cat sees Rimmer and says 'look out' before Rimmer has appeared around the corner. (00:26:25)


Correction: Cats have phenomenal senses of smell and hearing. The Cat would have known Rimmer was there long before he saw him.

Quarantine - S5-E4

Corrected entry: In Quarantine Lister has been given a big dose of the luck virus. A few moments later Lister, Cat and Kryten are walking backwards down a corridor. Luckily Lister picks up the right parts for what Kryten needs, as he picks up one of the items he trips and manages to keep on his feet. With the luck virus still going through him he should not have tripped. The actress who plays Holly mentioned this on the DVD commentary.

Correction: Why is tripping over something, when that trip doesn't lead to any injury or embarrassment, and in fact actually leads him to picking something useful up, bad luck? It's a luck virus, not a co-ordination virus.

Quarantine - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When demonstrating the luck virus with the deck of cards, Lister only shuffles the top few cards, then draws the four aces from the bottom of the deck.

Correction: It takes luck to be able to cheat at cards so well without any practice.

Quarantine - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When Lister, the Cat and Kryten have spent 5 days in quarantine Cat's arm is broken and in a sling. However, at the end of the episode, Rimmer regains consciousness and the rest of the crew are wearing gingham dresses and making fun of him. At this particular scene Cat's arm is no longer broken. Don't broken bones take quite a while to heal? Unless Rimmer was in a coma.

Correction: The ship probably has all sorts of medical technology that Rimmer wouldn't allow Cat to access, due to the quarantine; once they were out, he could use it.


Quarantine - S5-E4

Corrected entry: Rimmer says Red Dwarf can only sustain one hologram but in 'Me2' he had a duplicate hologram of himself by cutting off unnecescary power systems. If it can be done once, why can't it be done again?

Correction: Two possible reasons: firstly it may have been easier for Holly to generate a second Rimmer because duplicate the program producing Rimmer as opposed to creating an entirely new simulation for another hologram. Secondly the two Rimmers did not function properly, one Rimmer being insanely nasty and psychotic while the other one was very timid and quiet.
