** In "Justice", Lister confesses to his crewmates that he once stole the contents of an entire hotel room, bed included. [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]] would later do the exact same thing, except this time it's shown onscreen.

** Don Henderson played a Simulant in "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonVIIBeyondAJoke Beyond a Joke]]" and dies due to Kryten's negativity being shunted into his ship, causing him to destroy his own vessel and kill himself in a fit of rage. This was Henderson's final role. He died only a few months of throat cancer after the episode aired. Oh, and his raspy voice? That was not an effect.
* HeReallyCanAct: The memorial scene from "[[Recap/{{Red Dwarf Season VIII Back In The Red Part I}} Back In The Red: Part I]]" can be considered one for Creator/CraigCharles. In a show known for taking the piss out of sci-fi in general, his performance reading to Kochanski's tombstone is genuinely poignant. Robert Llewellyn even notes this on the documentary, stating that Craig got to do some proper acting.

* BrickJoke[=/=]AccidentallyAccurate: As Website/SFDebris pointed out, there was an interesting case where they may or may not have set up an incredible bit of {{Foreshadowing}}: In "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonIIStasisLeak Stasis Leak]]", Lister finds a picture of him and Kochanski getting married and a mention of a [[TitleDrop stasis leak]] that leads back in time to before the accident that killed the Red Dwarf crew. He eventually finds Kochanski, but she's already married to a future version of him. Future Lister is a bit of a {{Jerkass}}, but mentions that "in five years' time" they will find another way back into the past. Five years later, "[[Recap/RedDwarfSeasonVIOutOfTime Out of Time]]" aired, wherein the Dwarfers find a time machine and are immediately accosted by {{Jerkass}} future version of themselves who have been spending the last few decades being gourmands; dining with the richest and most powerful people in history, many of whom were [[CompleteMonster "a bit dodgy"]]. Whether a series known for its MST3KMantra as far as continuity is concerned actually intended to make a such a bit of foreshadowing, or the writers remembered and wrote an episode with that in mind, or if it was a happy accident, [[RiddleForTheAges we'll likely never know for sure]].

* UnintentionallySympathetic: As noted by several other tropes here, Rimmer's a lot more popular/sympathised with than he was really supposed to be.

\n\n** One joke was improved for the failed US pilot. In the original, Rimmer says that death is like "being on holiday with a group of Germans." In the US version, he likens death to "being at an Amish bachelor party," which is much more well-fitted to the demographic.

** In "Timeslides", a depressed Lister feels that being on ''Red Dwarf'' is worse than prison. Creator/CraigCharles would later spend four months in prison on (later proved to be false) rape charges.
