* No, ''not'' the mind ''probe!'' [[labelnote:Explanation]]The most famous instance of {{Narm}} in the entire series. The actor simply ''could not'' say the line without the bizarre inflection. WordOfGod has it that TerranceDicks included the line to reference a more obscure use of the same line in the earlier ''Frontier in Space'', in order to make fun of it. In so doing, he surpassed the original.)[[/labelnote]]
