** It's more likely that the regulation is against unregistered pets that don't have a vaccination record and so forth.

** When Lister's body was repaired by the Nanobots to build him a replacement arm, it's possible they also rebuilt anything else that was missing so he may now have a ''third'' appendix.

* SFDebris raises an interesting point in his review of "Parallel Universe", that if the female version of Lister is supposed to be ''exactly'' the same as Male Lister, this implies that ''his'' reaction to the news if he accidentally got someone pregnant would be to claim it was ''their'' fault for not taking precautions.

** The way Legion describes the facilities of his station, the existence with him would have been a literal heaven on earth, as long as they lived. Lister, and the crew, choose a very, very, slim chance at returning to a humanity who would likely view them as something of a "missing link", if they ever even find them, over that.

** in the timeframe the ship was launched, faster than light travel is impossible, it's a Jupiter mining ship suggesting the human race hasn't left the solar system, and the intended trip is several years long just for that. The only reason it eventually exceeds light speed is that it has been accelerating for 3 million years. It is essentially a huge bussard ramjet, so fuel mass isn't an issue. Hardly enough to declare the theory of relativity incorrect in universe.

** The two crews are very similar, but not exactly the same, which is why Arlene's lust for her male counterpart is so completely unrequited. Not to mention the huge difference between Cat and his counterpart.

** ''The Red Dwarf Programme Guide'' offered four other explanations: -->1) When Legion claimed to be removing said object to prevent peritonitis, he was really engaging Lister's mind through an insidious illusion. -->2) So confused was Rimmer by Lister's pasting six months' memories into his own that he only thought the six months included an appendectomy. -->3) Lister made a mistake when working on Rimmer's mind, so that someone else's memory of the operation strayed into his mind. -->4) Rob and Doug screwed up.

***Difference is male Rimmer only showed delight in male Lister's suffering, while female Rimmer was completely callous to someone she by all rights had never actually met.

\n* Low!Rimmer from ''Demons and Angels'' and what he wants to do to Lister is initially just BlackComedy but it's a bit more chilling when you consider the fact that he's somewhere buried inside the subconscious mind of regular Rimmer.

* Going by the interviews we saw, it appears the Inquisitor really does allow you to judge yourself. The two who survived were the two who actually made any attempt at all to defend themselves and believed what they were saying, no matter how shallow their arguments may have seemed to us, while the two to be erased probably could have made a worthwhile argument to be saved but didn't bother. So if you can be arsed convincing yourself that you're worth sparing, you'll be

** Cat was essentially a charismatic feral in the first two series. We don't know precisely how long he'd been alone except for the elderly priest, so his behavior upon meeting people was "look how handsome I am, feed me, seeya later". He got used to the crew of Red Dwarf and his personality evolved to allow them into his world for longer stretches of time, eventually becoming more dependent on them. Spend any time with a real stray cat, especially if you adopt one, and this is exactly what you see happening.
