Thanks For The Memory

Written by Rob Grant & Doug Naylor
Directed by Ed Bye


Rimmer's depressed - no one loves him. Not even his fried egg, chutney and chilli sauce sandwich. It's about time he had a damp dream at least. Then four days go missing and Lister and Cat wake up with their legs in plaster...Have the aliens landed at last?


Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Norman Lovett (Holly), Sabra Williams (Lise Yates)

Did You Know?

During the scenes where Lister and Cat are carrying the "Memory of Lise Yates" tombstone, that's not Craig Charles playing Lister. Craig had been called away to attend the birth of his son, so production manager Mike Agnew stepped into his space-suit - but unfortunately, the plaster cast created for Craig's foot didn't fit Mike, leading to an infamous visual continuity error.

The song performed by Rimmer in his dream sequence is "Someone To Watch Over Me", a George and Ira Gershwin classic originally found in the 1926 musical Oh, Kay!
