    That's weird! Lost to the editing, I guess.

    My favourite line of the series was in Dear Dave, when Kryten finds Lister humping dispenser 23.

    Lister "I was only trying to pick her up"

    Kryten "I think you're already past that stage, sir!"

    Hmm, I was there too, it wasn't a laugh out loud moment for me personally, although it did make me chuckle slightly under my breath. I was pretty surprised at the near silent audience reaction though.

    If you and others did laugh then you were doing so very, very quietly. :-) I'm fairly certain it has nothing to do with editing in this specific case. It was quite an odd moment though, especially considering how much the entire audience seemed to burst into fits of holistic laughter at what I felt were a few lesser gags every now and then.

    Yes, that was pretty good.

    I'm going to quickly mention something that I feel would have made the dispenser machine bit one of EVERYONE's favourite moments in series X. What if, when Rimmer saw Lister and the dispensing machine together, he simply rolled his eyes and said "Not again..." before walking off? It would have been a great joke, especially to us fans who see it as a regurgitation of the Polymorph moment, if the episode itself acknowledged it as such too.

    Were there more than one take of the scene?

    I read that whilst the show was filmed live, the laughter you hear is from a screened showing of the completed episode.

    Oops, sorry I must've missed this post before.

    I'm not sure there were multiple takes for that scene to be honest, I could be wrong though. But even if there was, I'm fairly certain there was no reaction the first time I heard it.

    One thing that is quite noticeable though is that there is laughter for Kryten's line "It looks like a little man" and that laughter kind of overran Rimmer's line. So I suppose it's possible some missed it because they were already laughing...or maybe not...it certainly came across loud and clear to me on the night.

    YES. Rimmer's timetable gets my vote every damned time.

    One of my favourites was from Trojan, Rimmer saying "no, we just hosed him down and gave him a hat" when talking to Howard about Kryten.

    Kryten talking about the Death Ship's business in The Beginning.
    "I think it's a bit deathy."

    Also:
    "How about we look out the window?"
    "We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Apart from pain. And maybe humiliation and obviously death. And failure. But apart from fear, pain and humiliation, failure and the unknown and death we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Who’s with me?"

    Dear Dave:
    Kryten: They say, due to the number of these letters of recommendation, they have absolutely no option but to request you stop writing them.

    Rimmer: Women have moved on from that move.
    Lister: Moves don’t move on.
    Rimmer: Moves move on!
    Lister: What, moves move?

    And finally:
    "He's speaking 'choking to death', sir. It's very hard to translate if you're not being strangled.

    MORE!

    "Gerald Hampton. Hampton." "Oh, nice to meet you captain!"
    The leaning bit in Trojan.

    Lister attempting to explain his father being him to Pree in Fathers & Suns. Her head tilt sells it.
    "As soon as that drill started whirring, I bet you were gone!" "How'd you know that." "You're still wearing the bib."
    "I've got a job for you." "I know." O.O

    And these bit sfrom Lemons.
    "What are you showing him, the tv?" "No. A bag."
    "Ah, he hath risen!"
    "... so that this Christianity thing-eth never takes off-eth-eth-eth."

    Rimmer repeating "A GIANT DEATH WORM!"
    Also: Rimmer: How is that two words?
    Cat: Because when it happened I said 'OH MAN!
    "While his finger-wetting machine was on overdrive!"
    "Let me put it this way - You're in the finals!"

    And anything with the stalker-dispenser.
    "*falls* I knew you'd come around, Dave, you naughty boy!"
    "*bump* Wow! I have never seen a ceiling! *bump*"

    Lister have you given Jesus a vindaloo?

    We've travelled 4000 miles from Albion to buy lemons.
    How many do you want?
    Eight.

    This really made me laugh thinking "ha wouldn't it be funny if the actual Jesus actually munched on a vindaloo after getting brought to the future!"
    Then I realised, at east within this episode's story that it wasn't such a bizarre concept, as he'd just come from India, the home of curries, and ultra hot curry wouldn't be a weird future thing for him, like the bag.
    Imagine if he'd tried a state of the art sarnie though. Wouldn't have needed that operation, he'd have had a baby, passing a kidney stone would be nothing after that :P
