Added DiffLines:

* DeathlyUnmasking: In a deleted scene, the big battle between the Unspeakable One's Hooded Legions and Rimmer's revived Self-Confidence and Self-Respect ends with one of the Hooded mooks (referred to as "Loneliness") being killed and unmasked, revealing it to be a perfect duplicate of Rimmer.

Added DiffLines:

* ReReleaseSoundtrack: The instrumental "Copacabana" that is heard near the start of this episode was, on the original broadcast, James Last's cover version. However, clearance costs would only cover the original broadcast, so all known repeats and home video releases substitute a soundalike.


* ShirtlessScene: Invoked. Chris Barrie read through the script and his reaction upon finding that he was gonna be shirtless in this episode basically rounds up to "Well, I'm hitting the gym so I can look good."

* HypocriticalHumor: "There's an old android saying which I believe is peculiarly appropriate here. In binary language it goes something like this: 001100111011000111100, which roughly translated means, 'Don't stand around jabbering when you're in mortal danger!'"

Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheCutie: The crew find several tombstones established to various good traits of Rimmer's, most of which "died" before he was out of his teens. One's even mentioned as having died at the age of nine.
** "Charm" has a tiny grave suggesting a stillbirth, and there was an open grave prepared for "Hope"...


* EldritchLocation: The psi-moon, which uses telepathy to scan the mind of a viable host and then psychokinetically resculpts its entire surface, complete with generating life-forms, as a living metaphor for the psyche of its host organism.

Added DiffLines:

* SecondVerseCurse: One of the last things Kryten remembers before the Psi-Moon became active was him and Rimmer singing all twenty-three verses of the Space Corps national anthem. And that, after a few verses, the moon coming alive and trying to kill them was something of a relief.
