Series VIII, Episode 6 - Pete: Part One
Lister and Rimmer are in trouble again, after putting a truth serum into Mr Ackerman's asthma inhaler.
Lister and Rimmer are in trouble again, after putting a truth serum into Mr Ackerman's asthma inhaler. As a punishment, they have to play a basketball game with the prisoners verses the guards. The guards are way ahead in the first half, but Lister and Rimmer have had another plan. They've put a virility drug into all the guards' half time drinks and thankfully, it does the trick and enables them to win.
Meanwhile, Kryten, Kochanski and the Cat are off with the canaries to rescue their missing mission group. They find them frozen in time by a time wand that can digitalise time. While Rimmer and Lister are facing another punishment for stealing a virus to eat potato skins, they are put in the hole with a strange old man called Birdman who has a pet sparrow called Pete. Bob the scutter helps them escape, but unfortunately the excitement of being freed kills the sparrow. Rimmer and Lister are confused to find all the crew frozen in time, and when they find Kochanski, Cat and Kryten enjoying a meal on the cargo bay, they explain all about the time wand. Kryten says he could probably restore Pete to a time when he was young and strong. However, he accidentally turns him into a dinosaur instead!
