    To be honest, I thought it was "Thanks for the Memory", you're right though.

    It basically was his mum, actually I'm seeing a bit of a pattern here; in Ouroborous Lister is his own father and sleeps with his own mother, in the books Rimmer broadly marries and sleeps with his own mother... Oedipus complex? :shock:

    Amazing question! *rolls up sleeves*. Assuming the definitive version as the hologram Rimmer revived in The End, and bearing in mind I am having an extremely dull birthday:

    The End- actual live, pre-death flesh-and-blood Rimmer
    Balance of Power- Kochanksi-Rimmer (now there's a mental image)
    Me2- duplicate hologram Rimmer

    Stasis Leak- double double future Rimmer (the one with the tache). Plus another appearance from actually alive Rimmer.
    Parallel Universe- Arlene Rimmer

    Polymorph- Polymorph Rimmer (to elicit Kryten's guilt)
    Bodyswap- Rimmer in Lister's body
    Timeslides- Young Rimmer

    Dimension Jump- Young Rimmer again, Ace Rimmer the First

    Demons and Angels- High and Low Rimmer
    Back to Reality- Billy Doyle

    Gunmen of the Apocalypse- Dangerous Dan McGrew
    Emohawk- bitterness-less "Ace" Rimmer
    Rimmerworld- first Rimmer clone, various guards, courtesans, Scary King Rimmer and assorted treasures of pulchritude
    Out of Time- Animal head Rimmer, fat future Rimmer

    Stoke me a Clipper- Ace Rimmer the Second
    Ouroboros- Past!Rimmer from Kochanski's universe
    Blue- Lister's dream Rimmer

    BITR part 1- nano Rimmer
    Only the Good- mirror universe Captain Rimmer

    Back to Earth and Series X's default Rimmer could be another version again, or perhaps not...

    So by my reckoning that makes 21, plus however many we see in Rimmerworld ("hundred of life signs"), plus current ambiguous Rimmer. However multiple appearances of Young and Alive Rimmer are counted only once because it's the same person. Ace counts twice for the two "true" versions we have seen, plus Emohawk Ace, but not the Ace who departs at the end of Stoke because that is still our definitive Rimmer. Savvy? :shock:

    Which mechanoid saying loosely translates as "Don't stand around jabbering when you're in mortal danger"?

    I think that's all of them between you. I'm not sure I could list all of them myself, I just wanted to see a full list.

    Gunmes of the Apocolypse. 39436175880932/C = The right for PoW's to non-violent constraint. Rimmer quotes 39436175880932/B which Kryten answers as being "All nations attending the conference are only allocated one car parking space.

    Which side of the screen does the first Rimmer clone jump out from in Rimmerworld?
