    Rimmer: Are you smoking, Lister - in the drive room?

    Lister: Yeah, I stopped for quite a while but I'm back on them now.


    I love this one. It still makes me laugh out loud after watching it many times. Most of my favourite RD gags tend to be those that manage to smoothly (and often quite subtly) reference a certain sci-fi element of the plot without compromising the sitcom element. And I think this is a basic yet brilliant example of that. :-D

    So many to choose from a couple of my top ones are:

    Holly: It's gone, the Whole Earth has just disappeared... Oh hang on a minute, sorry, I was looking out the wrong window.

    ---

    Rimmer: Learning drugs Listy, they're illegal, I'm afraid your in very serious deep trouble. Where did you get them? I want Names I want places I want dates.
    Lister: Arnold Rimmer, his locker, this morning.

    ---

    Holly: I've been through all of my data banks and I've come up with three realistic alternatives 1.sit here and get blown up. 2. Stand here and get blown up. 3. Jump up and down shout at me for not being able to think of anything, then get blown up.

    ---

    Bit of a random bit but I love the way Chris does this line in 'Legion' and Kryten's reaction.

    Rimmer: Cat that's mine.
    Cat: Sorry, bud we must have crossed wave lengths.
    Rimmer: It feels like you're pulling my teeth out.
    Cat: Well try swallowing.
    Rimmer: I have three times! *spits*

    ---

    Also I must add that the Fathers and Suns scene with Lister talking to his 'Dad' always cracks me up. :-)

    Man, that was SO funny. Loved that whole scene. Here it is...

    RIMMER: Somehow we've lost the last four days.
    CAT: Did you look behind the fridge? If you lose something it's nearly
    always there.
    RIMMER: Aliens!
    LISTER: What?
    CAT: What are you talking about, grease stain?
    RIMMER: It's a well documented phenomenon. They kidnap you, give you a
    mind probe, erase your memory, and put you back.
    LISTER: OK, aliens came aboard.
    RIMMER: Without question.
    LISTER: They broke my leg.
    RIMMER: For some reason.
    CAT: They broke MY leg.
    RIMMER: Right.
    HOLLY: And then they did a jigsaw.
    RIMMER: Right.
    HOLLY: Well, that's cleared that up then.
    RIMMER: Look, you're not thinking alien. That's what aliens are: alien.
    They do alien things. Things that are... (shrugs) alien. Maybe this
    is the way they communicate.
    CAT: By breaking legs?
    LISTER: And doing jigsaws?
    RIMMER: Why should they speak the way we do? They're aliens.
    LISTER: OK, professor, what does it mean?
    RIMMER: Maybe, maybe, OK? Breaking your leg hurts like hell, OK? "Hel."
    They do it below the knee, "lo." "Hel-lo," gettit? They do it twice --
    twice, "two." "Hello two." And the jigsaw must mean "you." "Hello to
    you."
    CAT: I wouldn't like to be around when one of these suckers is making a
    speech! (He limps out.)

    In DNA when Rimmer randomly starts going on about how the aliens are probably trying to return Glen Miller and then tells them they can "keep the smegger!" I don't know why, but it just cracks me up, it's so random!

    That's one of my favourite series IV moments. A wonderful piece of Rimmer silliness.

    Series 3 and 8 are the least funny of all the series!

    Series 4 visually looks terrible!

    Rimmer: Step up to red alert.
    Kryten: Are you absolutely sure? That does mean changing the bulb.

    Gets me every time!
