    Hi everyone! :-D

    Here's a new thread and one goal: Find all the references to famous people/characters in RD.
    No matter they're real people or fictitious characters! Batman counts, Albert Einstein counts...
    Any fictitious characters created only for RD and presented as famous (like Sabrina Mulholland-JJones or Blaize Falconburger, for instance) won't count.

    Ideally, your contribution will look like this:

    I've just been molested by Tutankhamun's horny grandma! Lister, Epideme

    Let's start now! :-)

    I can't remember who it's about, but there's the bit in DNA where it's "we don't want him!"

    Oh yes, there's really a lot more of these references in RD. :-)

    +43 for Gadamine!
    +1 for hellenaheavenly!

    Baxter's_hooch: I think it's Rimmer who talks about Glen Miller. By the way, who exactly is Glen Miller?
    After a short research, I've only found that Glenn Miller was a musician but why does Rimmer make a connection between Glen Miller and aliens? :?:

    Was it Glen Miller? I thought I'd have remembered that, he is a very famous composer! I had a feeling it was someone beginning with D...

    One of my favourite series three exchanges:

    KRYTEN: Surely you've heard of silicon heaven?
    LISTER: Has it got anything to do with being stuck opposite Bridgett Nielson in a packed lift?

    Really? I thought it was Mary Queen of Scots.

    (Marilyn Monroe poster inside locker)

    I'm not a combination of the speaking clock, Moss Bros, and Teezy Wheezy.

    The poor goit you made look like Helen Shapiro.

    (I believe the other hairdo to be a beatles reference.)

    Says me and Albert Einstein, thank you very much.
    I mean, Hermann Goering would have been more of a laugh than Rimmer. I mean, OK, he was a drug-crazed nazi transvestite, but at least we could have gone dancing!

    Jean Paul Sartre said hell was being locked forever in a room with your friends.
    Holly, all his mates were French.

    That's the Cat equivalent of Shakespeare, is it?
    Shakespeare? Who's Shakespeare?
    You moron. A playwright in the olden days. Wilfred Shakespeare.

    You ought to try reading your shirt sometime, Lister. It's probably a novel by Victor Hugo.
    They laughed at Galileo. They laughed at Edison. They laughed at Columbo.

    Who's Columbo? The man with the dirty mac who discovered America.

    "Football, It's a Funny Old Game" by Kevin Keegan.
    Well, if you erase all the Agatha Christie novels from my memory.

    When I think there's fast buck merchants like Beethoven and Mozart out there...
    Hercule has got all the suspects in one room...

    ...if you put Napoleon in quarters with Lister, he'd still be in Corsica, peeling spuds.
    It is my fond hope that, one day, this journal will take its place alongside `Napoleon's War Diaries' and `The Memories of Julius Caesar'

    Orson Welles, "Citizen Kane."

    The same number as champion the wonder horse:

    The 'Ben' book Lister reads in Season II is in fact Spot.

    You look like Clive of India!

    Our first contact with intelligent life in three million and two years and it's the android version of Norman Bates.

    What? Pinky and smeggy Perky?
    It's like giving Blind Pew contact lenses.
    Have you seen their broom cupboard? it's full of pin-ups of John Wayne.
    The one starring Myra Dinglebat and Peter Beardsley was definitive.

    Only last month we came across a moon which was shaped exactly like Felicity Kendall's bottom.
    We flew around that one a couple of times.

    We flew around that one a couple of times.
    I'm sharing a bunk with a character out of a Barbara Cartland novel.
    What I'm saying, Dave, is that it's better to have loved and to have lost than to listen to an album by Olivia Newton-John.

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

    Cluedo? You could be Colonel Mustard?

    The Earl of Sandwich invented the sandwich, Samuel Morse invented the Morse Code, Plato invented the plate, and now I, Holly, have invented the Holly Hop Drive.

    Well, for instance, in this universe, it could be that Hitler won the Second World War. It could be something even more incredible, like perhaps Ringo was a really _good_ drummer.

    Haven't you read "The Male Eunuch" by Jeremy Greer?
    Nellie Armstrong.
    Will Shakespeare. No, she was a woman. Wilma Shakespeare.
    Yeah, she wrote all the greats: "Rachael the Third,"
    Do I dance? Does Carmen Miranda wear fruit?
    C'mon, what are you, a man or a munchkin?

    Going with anything from "Meltdown" would be too easy. :-p

    "Tutunkhamun's horny Grandma" stands as one of my favorite lines in any show ever. Series VII didn't have too many highlights, but that was Gold.

    I can't recall the exact line, but there's a couple in the Inquisitor. Kryten references Ulysses when talking about the pursuit of Helen of Troy, the Trojan War, etc. And then Rimmer makes mention of the Archangel Gabriel when he's proving to be a slimy, green, ratty discharge of a man.

    Not exactly celebrities, more noteable historical/mythical/religious figures.

    She'll never leave Fred, and we know it.
    Would this count? - it's more inference than than reference.

    What period in HISTORY, dingleberry-breath? I mean can we expect to see Ghengis Khan and his barbarian buddies sweeping across the hill? Or a herd of flesh-eating dinosaurs feeding off the bones of Doug McClure? What is the year?

    Millions of people will come to life. Hitler will retreat across Europe, liberate France and Poland, disband the Third Reich, and bog off back to Austria!

    They're priceless nineteenth-century replicas of Napoleon's Armee du Nord.
    Bye, bye, Birdseye.

    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.

    You're obsessed with war, aren't you? You collect toy soldiers, play war games, read all those stupid combat mags. And half your books are on Patton and Ceasar and various other gits.

    Then you did your Roadrunner act

    Because, believe it or not, Lister, he told me that, in a past incarnation, I was Alexander the Great's chief eunuch.
    Everywhere I look reminds me of food. Look at these books: Charles Lamb, Herman Wok, the complete works of Sir Francis Bacon, Eric Van Lustbader...
    Look at this -- The Caretaker by Harold Pinta.
    like everyone can remember where they were when Cliff Richard was shot.
    _Biggles' Big Adventure_.
    _Complete Works of Shakespeare_. That should be good for a couple of hours.
    Goodbye _Hamlet_? Farewell _Macbeth_? Toodle-pip _King Lear_?
    _Richard III_, you moron.
    When we get through to Act Five of _Henry VIII_, I'm a dead man.
    It's an authentic Les Paul copy.
    "She's Out Of My Life ... She's Out Of My Life.""And I don't know whether to laugh or cry..." - Song by Michael Jackson


    Well, "The Three Musketeers," actually -- they always let me be the Queen of Spain.
    What about the Rimmer Directive which states, "Never tangle with anything that's got more teeth than the entire Osmond family?"


    What, you mean like persuade Dustin Hoffman not to make Ishtar?


    your silhouette was caste onto the wall. I got the fright of my life. I thought it was Alfred Hitchcock.
    Well you weren't exactly Charles Atlas to start with, were you?

    "Build-it-yourself Marilyn Monroe droid. With just a screwdriver and a tub of glue, you can construct an exact replica of the famous actress, in under two hours."

    No, I don't think so. He's a bit like Action Man in that department. Plastic underpants and a trademark.
    General George S. Patten, commander of the 3rd and 7th armies, allied invasion forces, once stopped off at an Italian field hospital, and had his sinuses drained.
    Story I got told was that some pavement artist sold it to a Texan tourist -- told him it was a genuine Jackson Pollock!

    I mean, like, take Nelson. When he put the telescope to his blind eye and said, "I see no ships!"
    Or like Humphrey Bogart, at the end of Casablanca, when he lies to Victor Lazslo to protect the guy's feelings.
    He was the rodent equivalent of Marlon Brando.
    When Steve McQueen met The Blob, he tried to kill it. It probably never crossed his mind to try and take it out to a restaurant.

    Oh, you're tracking a UFO. So, I have to sit around looking like the bride of Frankenstein?
    That's the shape we're looking for: The last-chicken-in-the-shop look?" Shakespeare had one? Einstein? Perry Como sang "Memories are Made of This" with one of those stashed in his slacks?
    Wasn't it Descartes who said, "I am what I am?" No, it was Popeye the Sailor Man.
    Man+ Lister is styled like Robocop

    I don't know what I would have done without you this last three weeks. You're like Florence Nightingdroid.
    No -- I'd have heard about her. She'd have appeared in Ripley's Believe It or Not.
    Paint it with orange and black stripes and tell her you play quarterback with the Bengals?
    I'm supposed to wear these? They look like Frankenstein's hand-me-downs.
    He partied less than Rudolf Hess.
    An incompetent vending-machine repairman with a Napoleon complex, who commanded as much respect and affection from his fellow crew
    members as Long John Silver's parrot...


    Well, it'll be the nineteenth century for me. One of Napoleon's marshals.
    We'd better pray to God this works.
    the thing you have to remember about Captain Oates; Captain Oates ... Captain Oates was a prat. If that'd been me, I'd've stayed in the tent, whacked Scott over the head with a frozen husky, and then eaten him.
    Look, just conserve your energy. Stan and Ollie will soon be back with supplies.

    Not even "Pop goes Delius" or "Funking up Wagner?"
    "Ace and Skipper?" You sound like a kid's TV series about a boy and his bush kangaroo!

    100% Positive - the man mentioned at the beginning is Glen Miller, celebrity who disappeared on over the English Bay during WWII. Conspiracy theories dictate he was either shot down or captured by the Nazis.

    Rimmer : "They're probably going to return Glen Miller...that's just what we need. Glen Miller on board, boring us to death with Pennsylvannia 65,000. Kryten, open communications: WE DON'T WANT HIM! GO AWAY! You took him, you can keep the Smegger!"

    DNA also references Decarte and Popeye the Sailor Man.

    Camille has numerous references to Humphrey Bogart and other cast members from Casblanca.
