Rimmer's duplicate hologram brings nothing but trouble to Red Dwarf. The original Rimmer moves out of his and Lister's quarters and starts sharing a room with his double.

Things go well at first, but of course even Rimmer can't stand himself for that amount of time and before long they begin to argue. Only one of them can stay once this starts and it's just a case of who should leave.

Oh, and not before Lister tricks Rimmer into telling him about his Gazpacho soup incident...
