    In Timewave Rimmer says he thought he heard the phrase “spit on her wrist” when in fact they said the word clitoris.

    I can’t help but think this may be the worst line in Red Dwarf history. It doesn’t work on any level, in sound or syllables. What is a line in RD which you think doesn’t work or is just bad?

    I cringed at this line. I can't imagine Doug not having a certain amount of doubt while writing it.

    You can only hope he had some.

    I think we devoted about two pages to this in the Timewave thread. What annoys me is that surely "Lick her wrist" rhymes better while saying the same thing. Not that the joke is any good to begin with, but it's made worse by the tortured rhyme.

    It's an old Chubby Brown joke from the 80's and it was crap then as well.
