    +1 for My Mind Is Going :-D

    - 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 quite sanguine.

    they were all the little foibles that made Rimmer special
    Well that takes care of most of the repertoire!

    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.

    Here's a very weak one:

    In Nanarchy Kochanski mentions the Venus De Milo, which is on display at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

    +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
    - Epideme
    - Future Echoes
    - Timeslides
    - Blue

    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 :-)

    I believe the reference is when you watch the dvds and go to select episode, it gives you a title for each chapter
