Yes, hence why I said "in some form". It's re-use in Batman form for Epideme could have just about passed muster as a nudge to a previous episode or at worst written off as Lister using the same corny chat-up line whenever he wants to coerce a woman into bed. It's re-appearence in Pete Part 1 though, this time spoken by Hollister quoting Ackerman can't reasonably be said to be either of the former and just seems like lazy rehashing of material because Doug felt there was still some tea left to be squeezed out of that particular bag. All of which returns me to my original point about series 8, which may as well have carried the subtitle: One Joke Too Far. I'm hoping a 9 year gap has filled Doug with some fresh humour and ideas.
