Mauritius the former french colony?
Kryten: This is the piece de resistance...
+1 for My Mind Is Going
- Ace Rimmer: You're right, I will restrict our researches to really/obviously French words otherwise it's going to be a real mess.
So I can't accept sabotage...
And I cannot accept Mauritius, it's not obvious to see here the reference with France...
EDIT: I give you a clue: check these two episodes:Blue and The Last Day
I'm so dumb i heard him say it but it didn't register
I'm quite sanguine.
they were all the little foibles that made Rimmer special
Well that takes care of most of the repertoire!
Rimmer: "If we're talking about famous firsts, my first french kiss..."
Not sure about this one
Rimmer: "two people unable to contain their desire had an elicit liaison"
I believe the first one has been mentioned
I joke, I joke...
The first has been mentioned, as Ace Rimmer 165 has rightly said.
As for the latter, I'm not so sure we could count it. Like so many other possibilities, if we delve too deep into the origins of these terms we'll be here all night and day looking for the things, due to the nature of the origins of words.
And no, that's not an effort to defend my failing crown on top of that scorecard Wish I could think of more to defend it, but shy of going back and actually watching the epsiodes again I'm dry of all ideas.
This thread is really getting competetive...
Every Dwarfer for himself.
ah yes so it had. Yeah i thought liaison would be iffy.
Here's a very weak one:
In Nanarchy Kochanski mentions the Venus De Milo, which is on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
Only The Good
Talia: "you french kissed me"
hopefully I wont flamingo up and this one hasn't been mentioned
+1 for Gadamine (The French kiss in Only the Good has never been mentionned before)
About the liaison and the Venus de Milo, I think we won't count them because if we do, we would be supposed to count many many more things and it wouldn't make sense in the end... These words and references are not very obvious so -sorry- it won't count...
Otherwise, things are getting difficult cos the objects of our researches are turning to be quite rare now, but a few ones are still missing in this thread. So, I've decided to give you a little list of episodes where you may find a few more idioms and references:
- The Last Day
- Future Echoes
Good luck! And be the first to grab the points!!
On the thought of slightly more vague and loose points, what of the opening scene of Gunmen being titled "Dwarf Noir"?
Yes, despite replaying episodes mentioned in my head I am drawing a blank, so throwing something that probably doesn't count into the mix just for kicks
RIMMER: Look, if Kryten wants to take an amorphous green blob for a discreet tete-a-tentacle, I say good luck to him.
I've watched again Gunmen but I've seen nothing like a "Dwarf Noir". I suppose my eyes have betrayed me so can you tell me where it is exactlly?
And +1 for My Mind is Going!
1. Daniel (12 points)
2. Gadamine To Titan (10 points)
3. Almighty_Crj (7 points)
4. Ace Rimmer 165 (4 points)
4. My Mind Is Going (4 points)
4. Kachum Babow (4 points)
7. Bluey (3 points)
8. Currymonster (2 points)
9. Simon Hide (1 point)
9. M'Aiden Ty-One (1 point)
I believe the reference is when you watch the dvds and go to select episode, it gives you a title for each chapter
Demons And Angels:
As Lister is force feeding himself a tarantula...
LOW KRYTEN: Bon appetit!
Mini Rimmer "master of wit and repartee"
