    Back In the Red, Pt. 2

    Rimmer plans to move up the career ladder - using extremely dubious means. He gains access to Red Dwarf's confidential files, and then takes up the opportunity when he is invited to dinner with the Captain and the senior officers. To make the evening go with a swing, he douses himself with a "sexual magnetism virus" which will make him irresistible to the female crew. In the meantime, Kryten has to come to terms with the fact that he has been classified as a woman due to his lack of male sex organs.

    Cassandra

    On Holly's advice, Lister joins the "Canaries." He thinks it is the prison choir, actually it is a battle-hardened convict army, trained to go on suicide missions. And he's also enrolled Rimmer, probably the yellowest of yellowbellies in the whole universe. On their first mission, Rimmer meets Cassandra (Geraldine McEwan), a computer with the ability to predict the future with 100 per cent accuracy, which prophecies his imminent death.

    Pete, Pt. 1

    Life has not been the same since the nanabots re-created Red Dwarf, and now Lister and Rimmer are forced to take on the guards in a basketball game. The only way they believe they have a chance of winning is by sabotaging the opposition's half-time juice with 'Boing', the virility enhancement drug. Needless to say, the match is a fiasco and their punishment is two weeks of spud duty. With Bob the Skutter's help, Lister gets hold of a virus which eats potato skins. It also eats clothing and hair.

    Pete, Pt. 2

    The Dwarfers find themselves in a life-threatening situation when they devolve Pete the Sparrow into a Tyrannosaurus Rex with a time-wand, and he goes on the rampage in the cargo decks. To make matters worse, Pete has eaten the time-wand, so the Dwarfers hatch a cunning plan to get it back via a dinosaur portion of cow vindaloo. Unfortunately, Pete also eats through the crew's food stocks - including two-and-a-half tonnes of mint-chocolate ice-cream, 2,000 gallons of Coca Cola and 400 orange ice pops - with devastating effects. Rimmer and Lister are sent on the mission to put things right, but things don't go quite as planned.
