    Some of these are a bit tenuous - Good haul though! and Good Luck to ArmeeDuNord in sifting through it!

    I see the new rules are inspiring you a lot! :-)

    So, let me sum up:

    - Almighty_Crj: +11! :-)
    Are refused:
    ...genetically engineered life form who can alter your perception.: perception comes directly from the latin 'perceptio', I suppose.
    Scouter (Maybe it comes from the word 'écouteur' but the link between the two words is rather uncertain)
    Exquisite (It's only 'exquis' in French but it's 'exquisitus' in Latin -> Direct link with the Latin)

    - Gadamine to Titan: +5! :-)
    Is refused: Caroline Carmen, it doesn't sound too obvious to me.
    I had a little hesitation about the wardrobe until I realise that it comes from 'garde-robe'!

    - Ace: +2! :-)

    - Currymonster: +0, sorry: The baguette and croissants line has been mentionned before! ;-)

    I didn't offer it because I thought it was French by origin, I offered it because I thought it was pronounced the same. Anyway...

    To eat, perchance to taste.
    What's Lieutenant-General Baron Jaquinaux of the First Cavalry Division supposed to be doing with meat vindaloo all over his tunic? It'll make him look more authentic. People'll think he's got dysentry.

    Competition the next day, and your ball lands in Lister's buttock crevice.
    Now wait a minute. Not Napoleon's Armee du Nord!
    They were hand-carved by the legendary Dubois brothers.
    Burn the Armee du Nord.
    Au revoir, mes amis. A bientot.
    We rendezvoused with Holly.

    He thought a glacier was a man who fixed windows.

    There's something buried deep in the heart of the astro-glacier - some kind of object...
    Miss Kochanski! Who'd you think!? Madam Curie??
    And tonight, Dave Lister, assistant vending machine sub-operative, and spice food connoisseur, this is your *death*!
    Cat, you can have anything you want from my wardrobe.
    I had you marked down as a bit of a madam,

    Kryten: when i cleaned out my cachefiles i erased my lingerie data base i didn't see much call for it unless we had a fancy dress party and you wanted to go as Herman guring
    Epideme
    Cat: what is it?
    Krystine: astro glacier
    Kryten: look at thier twisted tortured faces the sheer blind terror
    confidence and parinoia
    rimmer: Only two things spring to mind the spontaneous combustion of the mayor of warsaw in 1546 and that incident in 12th century burgundy when it rained herring
    Kat: hey lets see what we have in the magic bag, i've got some grapes
    Lister: what you doing with theCigarette buds

    To be fair, I'd like to point out I'd only put down the remaining Astro glacier references after Ganymine put down his, so If no one else mentioned glacier first, Ganymine should get the unique points.


    "Robert Hardy reads 'Tess Of The D'Urbevilles'"

    Absolutement! And that is why I'll win.
    Call me pretentious if you like, but for me, a truly great wine should not leave you with a moustache that you can only remove with turps.
    Why, only last week, Louis the Sixteenth threw a banquet especially in our honour.
    "The Four Musketeers," we used to call ourselves. Well, "The Three Musketeers," actually -- they always let me be the Queen of Spain.
    I said she was a simple-minded, scaly old piscine!
    RIMMER is wearing a T-shirt which reads, "GIVE QUICHE A CHANCE."
