When you see this, post a quote from Red Dwarf in your journal


'Today's fish is trout a la creme, enjoy your meal.'


'Today's fish is trout a la creme, enjoy your meal.'

And so on and so forth...

Yep, it's a Red Dwarf quote meme thing :)

what is red dwarf?
Ithithildyn on April 10th, 2009 07:01 am (UTC)
British SF comedy from the late eighties/early nineties. It's rather indescribable [g]

Haven't seen that, so don't know :)

From IMDB:

"Three million years ago, a radiation leak killed the crew of the mining ship, Red Dwarf. The only survivor was Dave Lister, the chicken soup machine repairman. He spends his time on the ship with a holographic projection of Arnold Rimmer (his dead bunkmate), Cat (a life-form that evolved from Dave's cat), Holly (the ship's senile computer), and Kryten (a service mechanoid).

The year is 2077. Dave Lister is a Liverpudlian caretaker working on-board "Red Dwarf" a gigantic space freighter traveling to Earth, the ship is commanded by Captain Ed Hollister. Lister is obsessed with eating curries and he irritates his pompous and cowardly boss and bunk-mate Arnold "Judas" Rimmer. Lister is sentenced to 6-months in suspended animation for smuggling his pet cat Frankenstine on-board. Lister awakes from suspended animation, only to find the crew have been wiped out in a radioactive disaster, he has been frozen for 3 million years and Red Dwarf is lost in the middle of deep space. But Lister is not alone on-board Red Dwarf. Also on-board Red Dwarf is: Holly, the ship's computer who has lost his intelligence after not being used for so long, A hologram simulation of Rimmer (A electronic ghost), The Cat, a humanoid that evolved from Lister's pet cat Frankenstine and Kryten, robot butler rescued from the American space cruiser 'Nova 5'.

After a massive radiation leak wipes out the entire population of a mining ship in space, chicken soup machine repairman Dave Lister is the only living person in the universe after coming out of suspended animation after 3,000,000 years.

On board the mining ship Red Dwarf, the slovenly and lazy Third Technician Dave Lister is sentenced to eighteen months in stasis for smuggling an unquarantined cat on board. Three million years later, he is revived to discover he is the sole surviving crew member on board the ship following a nuclear disaster, and very probably the last human being alive in the universe. But he is not alone. Also on board is HOLLY, the senile computer powering the ship; an intangible hologrammatic version of Second Technician Arnold Rimmer, his pompous and cowardly immediate superior; The Cat, a humanoid evolved from Lister's pet cat; and Kryten, a neurotic android. And so this motley crew goes where no one has gone before, in search of adventure, women, and a really good vindaloo...

The only thing I remember verbatim from Red Dwarf is "Smeghead!" That not only says something about my memory but also the show. *grin*

I haven't thought about Dwarf for years! But -- I posted.

Go you!

OH MY GOD! RED DWARF :squees uncontrollably: CAT! DAVE! ARNOLD! :glomps you:

I love love love Red Dwarf! My sister has a better memory when it comes to episodes and quotes, but that only means I can enjoy them over and over again. It's been shown here on-and-off, and I've probably missed more episodes than I've seen, but I love it madly. AND! it's educational: Red Dwarf is where I first heard about curry! Still haven't had an opportunity to try it though.

Really? I grew up eating it. It's really easy! Mum usually made shrimp curry over rice, just using the tinned shrimp you get in the grocery store. If you go to Penzey's and get either this or this, you could make yourself a curry!

Red Dwarf is awesome! We had this great PBS station in San Jose that aired it right from the beginning. Looking forward to the reunion show!

Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!

What's Penzey's? I doubt very much it exists in Bosnia!
Ithithildyn on April 10th, 2009 08:59 pm (UTC)
It's an online spice store :) I'm pretty sure they ship internationally.
valihavaliha on April 10th, 2009 09:07 pm (UTC)
Hmph. We're blacklisted on almost all online-type-places. For example, did you know that you can't use Paypal to buy 10€ worth of Skype credits if you're in Bosnia? A colleague of mine has to have her brother buy credits for her. And I can't tell you how many times I tried to order something online only to find out that "We don't ship to your country". You also can't receive money sent via Paypal. Of course, all doors are open to those with a foreign credit card.
Ithithildyn on April 10th, 2009 09:11 pm (UTC)
If I had some curry powder, I'd send it to you [g] Next time I buy some, I'll have to put some in a baggie and mail it to you!
valihavaliha on April 10th, 2009 09:24 pm (UTC)
I'm sure I could find it in one of the stores that cater to foreigners; I just never had a desire to try it! It was fun seeing Lister drool over a dish; I have favorite dishes that make me feel like that.

One of my colleagues likes to experiment with her food, so I'm sure she tried to make it. I'll have to ask her how her experiments are coming along!

There's a great android joke that goes a little like this:
