Lister finds himself missing the human race, despite Kryten’s attempts to remind him that the human race never did anything for him. Lister’s rampant depression soon affects even Rimmer, who faces a crisis of his own: having not reported to a single day of work in over three millennia (by virtue of being dead), Rimmer is in danger of having his rank reduced automatically per Jupiter Mining Corporation policy. Lister seeks solace wherever he can, even to the point of striking up a relationship with one of the ship’s vending machines, which leads to a bit of a misunderstanding with a piece of machinery whose job it is to dispense snacks…
Cast: Chris Barrie (Rimmer), Craig Charles (Lister), Danny John-Jules (Cat), Robert Llewellyn (Kryten), Isla Ure (Dispenser 23 / Dispenser 34)
Notes: Once again, Lister’s pining for the human race seems to completely discount Red Dwarf VIII and its nanobot-replicated crew.
