Further details

Kryten is feeling very upset about having to live with the women seeing as he hasn't had his corrupted files re-corrected. Meanwhile, Lister has put up an appeal against being in the prison block for two years and to possibly achieve this appeal, he has to have a record of good behaviour. Typically, he does something to jeopardise this.

When someone re-programmes Kryten so that he betrays the women in his block by filming them in the showers to show to the male prisoners on film night, he starts to make a fortune. He lies to Lister and tells him that Kochanski is getting back together with her old boyfriend, Tim. Lister quickly goes about laying plans to destroy hope of Kochanski falling in love with Tim again by trashing his quarters. Unfortunately, it turns out to be Ackerman's quarters he destroys and Kryten has set him up just to film him doing this deed to show to the prisoners at film night!
