Red Dwarf
Debut: February 15, 1988
Ended: November 16, 2017

A hilarious British parody of Star Trek, this series follows the misadventures of the crew of the deep-space mining ship, Red Dwarf. After a severe accident occurs, a beer-guzzling slob named Dave Lister awakens from his cryogenic sleep to find it is three million years later, and he is the last human being alive in the universe. He soon finds a friend in the ship’s half-witted computer Holly. The computer confesses that he had created a hologram of one of Lister’s shipmates, one Arnold Rimmer. The group soon finds that Lister’s pet cat had spawned a litter that, over these three million years, had evolved into a race of beings less concerned with the state of the universe than their own looks and finding shiny things. Cat is the last of this race. Eventually, the ship comes across an android named Kryten, and the rest is history…or the future. The original BBC Two run lasted from February 15, 1988 - April 5, 1999, while its revival on UKTV Dave lasted from April 10, 2009 - November 16, 2017. The revival is currently on hiatus.

Rimmer: "Now kindly cluck off, before I extract your gibblets, and shove a large seasoned onion between the lips you never kiss with."
Cat: "I've been so worried I haven't buffed my shoes in my two days."
Rimmer: "Kryten, kindly get to the point before I jam your nose between your cheeks and make it the filling of a buttock sandwich."
Rimmer: "No look, I'm you from the future. I've come to warn you that in 3 million years you'll be dead!"
Rimmer: "My brain's rebelled. It just won't accept nice things happening to me."
Cat: "Do you realize that with all this rescue stuff, I haven't had time to perm my leg hairs!"
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!"
Rimmer: "When the going gets tough, the tough go have a little cry in the corner."
Rimmer: "So let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet to see the King of the Potato People and plead with him for your freedom, and you're telling me you're completely sane?"
Kryten: "Yes, sir I am a robot"
lister: "Im going out the same way I came in, screaming and kicking"
Rimmer: "Smeg off dog-food-face!"
Kryten: "*holding up a tampon* Go ahead try it on I want to see what it looks like!"
Rimmer: "Step up to red alert."
Kryten: "Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb."
Rimmer: "What is there that one could possibly loathe about me?"
Kryten: "Would you like a list sir?"
Lister: "Rimmer, can't you see that the story is not gripping me? I'm in a state of nongripness. I'm completely smegging ungripped. Shut the smeg up!"
Kryten: "Mr Rimmer would be effectively dead."
Cat: "Hey! Things are looking up already."
Holly: "And the moral of the story is , appreciate what you've got because basically I'm fantastic."
Rimmer: "Well, I would have thought it was obvious. Two people unable to contain their desires had an illicit liason. A liason that an unforgiving society would not accept, and you were the fruit of their forbidden passion. You're forbidden passion fruit."
Rimmer: "Wrong, wrong, absolutely brimming over with wrongability"
