    GASP! Craziness...my husband and I were just LOL'ing over that exact line last night. Curious how the writers come up with these comments...quotes from history past or simply insulting thoughts kept to themselves until it is time to write.

    Another slight coincidence: last night I was thinking that someone ought to start a thread about favourite Rimmer insults, though this one isn't limited to Rimmer of course.


    Rimmer insults do tend to be the funniest, nastiest and most memorable. Here's a particularly nasty one from Confidence And Paranoia:

    "Filthy piece of distended rectum." Rimmer has the best insults, hands down :-)

    "Morning, Lister! How's life in hippie heaven, you pregnant baboon bellied space .......? What's the plan for the day then? Slobbing in the morning, followed by slobbing in the afternoon, then a bit of a snooze before the main evening's slob? God, you're a disgrace to the species"

    Future Echoes.....Classic :-D

    One many people perhaps don't regard as an insult because of the kindly, caring way its put across:

    "That was an important speech, Sir, and it needed to be made. Might I suggest, however, that the rest of this discourse is continued by those with brains larger than a grape?"

    The delivery and friendly smile is top class as is Cat's "fair enough" acceptance of it. :P

    I think what he says is "space monkey" but that's just going by lip reading; I could be wrong.

    One of my favourites - "I have got hair like yours. Just not on my head."

    One of my favourites, from Stoke Me A Clipper:

    "You're a gutless, spineless, gormless, directionless, neurotic, underachieving, snivelling, cowardly pile of smeg. No offence, but get real, man. Most eunuchs have got more balls than you!"

    Rimer: A Smee Hee?
    Kryten: A complete and total one.

    Backwards I think? Not sure.

    There are so many great insults to choose from, but I'd have to say that my favourite (from Rimmer, of course) is the following:

    Do you know what it is about Lister that really makes me want to puke?
    That really makes me want to stab him in both eyes with an icepick?
    Everything, that's what.
    Especially his godawful chirpy gerbil-faced optimism.

    Something about the randomness of "godawful chirpy gerbil-faced optimism" really cracks me up.

    I love the early Series general insulting greetings that Rimmer gives.

    "Morning, Lister! How's life in hippie heaven, you pregnant baboon bellied space .......? What's the plan for the day then? Slobbing in the morning, followed by slobbing in the afternoon, then a bit of a snooze before the main evening's slob? God, you're a disgrace to the species"

    Thats a good example of this. Incidently, a script website I looked at has the line as "pregnant baboon bellied space cookie".....I think I prefer beatnik.....cookie doesn't even make sense!!

    Another example of Rimmer's insulting greetings is this one aimed at Cat from Balance Of Power

    "Good evening, you stupid, stinking, festering, gimboid of a cat!"

    Not even really an insult, but it does the Job.
    'This man is not guilty of manslaughter, he is only guilty of being Arnold J Rimmer. That is his crime. It is also his punishment.'

    Of course, the whole trial is one great insult, really.
