Episode - The Last Day
Lister: (Reading the address) "To the lease holder of Kryten 2X4B 523P." That's your full name?
Kryten: Yes, but personally I don't much like the 2X4B. I think it's a jerky middle name. Still, it could be worse. I once knew an android whose middle name was 2Q 4B. Poor sucker!
Rimmer: Maybe I should talk to him. Maybe he needs a bit of counselling.
Rimmer: I used to be in the Samaritans.
Lister: I know. For one morning.
Rimmer: I couldn't take any more.
Lister: I don't blame you. You spoke to five people, and they all committed suicide. I wouldn't mind, but one was a wrong number! He only phoned up for the cricket scores!
Rimmer: Well, it's hardly my fault that everyone chose that morning to throw themselves off buildings! Made the papers, you know. "Lemming Sunday," they called it.
Rimmer: [Kryten] doesn't like doing anything! His idea of a good time is for us all to go up to the laundry room and fold some sheets! (Put's on a "Kryten Voice") Fun? Ah yes, the employment of time in a profitless and non-practical way.
Rimmer: Well, I'd have thought it was obvious. Two people, unable to contain their desires, had an illicit liaison. A liaison that an unforgiving society would not accept. And you were the fruit of their forbidden passion. You're forbidden passion fruit.
Lister: What are you saying?
Rimmer: I'm saying, Lister, that there's a very real possibility that your parents were brother and sister.
Kryten: You would gamble your safety for a mere android? Is this the human value you call "friendship?"
Lister: Don't give me the Star Trek crap. It's too early in the morning.
Rimmer: (Rimmer walks past the others and marches straight up to HUDZEN.) Alright, me laddo, party's over. I've had just about as much of this as I'm going to take. And it's no good standing there with your big macho chest and your silly oiled nipples -- it doesn't impress me one bit. Now I don't know where you've come from, and frankly I don't much care. But if you don't skedaddle pronto you're going to see a side of me you won't much like.
Lister: (To Cat) What's he gonna do, drop his trousers?
