The plot When Lis­ter se­cretly gives Rim­mer his mem­o­ries of an old re­la­tion­ship, the en­tire crew suf­fers the fall-out. Why it’s great Long

be­fore Eter­nal Sun­shine Of The Spot­less Mind got Jim Car­rey’s mind in a twist, Red Dwarf came up with a very sim­i­lar idea. The rev­e­la­tion about Rim­mer’s false mem­o­ries is ac­tu­ally only un­cov­ered late on in an episode burst­ing with in­ven­tion, and plot­ted like a mys­tery: just why have the crew lost four days’ worth of mem­o­ries and why do both Lis­ter and Cat have plaster casts on their legs?
