They all did. It was a running joke throughout the series. Episode six consists of nothing but the cast wandering around the set carrying tubs of butter, remarking on how the word “butter” has the word “butt” in it for thirty minutes. It was fantastic.
Phew! I’m glad we’re all allowed to talk about the butter story arc now. Truly fantastic writing.. it was refreshing to see that Naylor was still able to churn (get it – churn!) out absolute classics like this!
And do you know what happens when a dinosaur eats cow butter, and then eats two and a half tons of butter ice cream, followed by four hundred crates of orange butter, and swills the whole thing down with two thousand gallons of a popular melted butter? Do you know what happens?
Lister: I don’t want to be the butterer! I’ll be the shover.
Kryten: Sir, you’re not qualified the be the shover!
Rimmer: Give it to me. I’LL be the butterer. It would be an honor. It’s the high point of my breakfast.
[FX: Loud bang as the Vitalite™ barrier is broken.]
Lister: What was that?!
Bertolli: Erm, er, 11:14 ship time, Dave.
Lister: No, Bertolli, what was that flash?
Bertolli: We’ve broken the Vitalite barrier 22 hours early.
Lister: Olivi-oh. Is everyone Stork Light?
Bertolli: I can’t do it. I can’t cope. We’re going at the speed of Vitalite. Me bottle’s gone.
Lister: Bertolli! Is everyone Stork Light?!
Bertolli: No! *I’m* not! I thought I could Cow & Gate at Vitalite speed, but I just can’t Lurpak me bread round it. Fillipo Berio! That was a close one…
Lister: Bertolli, what’s the problem? You’re toast to have a Bresse Bleu of 6,000, aren’t you?
Bertolli: Look, we’re travelling faster than the speed of Vitalite. That means, by the time we Dairylea something, we’ve all bready passed through it. Even with a Saint Ivel Q of 6,000, it’s still brown trousers time!
