    Thanks Gadamine for the explaination, I was watching Gunmen and wondered: "Where's the smeg is this "Dwarf Noir"! :-D Now I understand!

    By the way, I won't count the Dwarf Noir (it's outside the episode so it's refused, sorry) and repartee (already mentionned).
    +1 for My Mind Is Going with "bon appetit", Demons and Angels.

    !!!IMPORTANT!!!
    Up to now, the rule consisted in finding references or words which are clearly French, excluding the English words with French origins. This is going to change!
    Considering that my minuscule capacities in Etymology are outrageously limited and therefore I am unable to determine if a word is rather English (with French origins) or French (but sometimes used in English), I've made a new, definitive rule:
    ANY WORD WHICH MUST BE PRONOUNCED IN A FRENCH WAY WILL BE COUNTED AS ADMISSIBLE.

    So: Sabotage and Entrepreneur +2 for Ace Rimmer
    Liaison +1 for Gadamine to Titan
    In contrast, the words with French origins but usually pronounced in the English way will not be counted.
    Naturally, every traditional references and French idioms are still accepted. I just needed to clear the situation about a few kinds of words shared between French and English...
    Sorry for all these changes but it's much more easy for me to deal in this way! ;-)

    Indeedio - tbh I took a guess at Marooned.

    I have some sort of mental red dwarf aural database from watching them more than 50 million times each, but the episode titles are a bit mixed up :-D


    Anyway Maybe this counts....

    ArméeDuNord, may I ask, could you please acknowledge this post? You dosn't seem to be referenced either in anyway.The quotes are from the Last Day and Blue respectively. This little number is from Balance of Power

    Yes, that's right, that's right! And you spent the rest of the summer walking around like a croquet hoop!

    Holoship: An adroit suggestion sir, with just two minor drawbacks

    Holoship: So, and this probably sounds like a stupid question, you don't really have much interest in horse riding or ballet

    Psirens: : Even the brunette?

    Psirens: All we have to do is create the facade that we're not the uncouth morons you are.

    DJ, maybe?: I could've sweet-talked our way out of it if you hadn't've blown the whole gaffe

    I was thrown for a minute by the bib and the bonnet.
    Anyone fancy a game of charades using just your noses, or is this a bad time?
    I'm different now... more mature, more debonair.I don't even stir my tea with a spanner any more.
    Is Paris a kind of plaster? You bet I am! A tiny swigette to see if it works.

    Drop dead Rimmer! Already have done. Encore!

    Launch scouter!
    Scouter Launched, Sir!

    They've been forced to make a massive detour to circumnavigate this asteroid belt.
    But is it really that pertinent in this particular situation?
    For pity's sake, one breech in that hull, and we're people pate
    Launching scouter.
    ...genetically engineered life form who can alter your perception.
    They'll try and tempt us, scare us, break our morale.
    if that's the most sophisticated enticement these Psirens can throw at us,
    No, but I hope to acquire one from this escapade.
    Your death will be exquisite.
