    For the longest time – until about five years ago, actually – I thought this was Holly’s line in “Future Echoes”. When I realised what he was actually saying, I felt relieved that I’d never repeated the line myself, or written it out anywhere.

    I can’t be the only one who has, or had, some Red Dwarf Lady Mondegreens stored in their little grey cells. So g’wan – let’s hear ’em.

    In backwards. I thought the club owner was saying someflobadobblibblobbleeb.
    but turns out he says, “tog seh efil das roop a tahw”.

    Erm no I cant think of any serious ones. I struggle a bit with some of things “swallow” says in back to earth. Does he say “All legal” ? about the carbug? cus it sounds like hollyhole to me, but im in danger of sounding father ted like racist, at the lovely chinesse people here, so I should I probably have a go at some of craig’s scouse to even things out. So “what’s an iguana” sounds like a tennis player clearing his nose to me.

    Yeah, “All legal” is what I heard.

    I have to go back and remind myself because I have a lot more, probably including some really embarrassing ones. I watched for years on home-recorded VHS before buying the box set of DVDs and discovering how totally, utterly and completely wrongly I was hearing everything.

    I know there are also a few of them where I’m not sure who’s right – me or the subtitles.

    In Queeg, I always heard Deganwy as “on Ganymede” and thought it pretty far out that Lister and his school would go for a camping trip on one of the moons of Jupiter. To be fair, Deganwy is in North Wales and is just as inhospitable and lifeless as Ganymede.

    I think we’ve done this before, but in the Smeg Ups I always wondered what a “parpussy” was. As in, “she’s a computer parpussy”.

    Oh, and for years, I thought it was “I gather we had no siren, you see.” I had no idea why they might have needed a siren for that particular scene.

    The line Chris fluffs is: “Lister, she’s a computer sprite, and surely that’s the point. She’s just a load of pixels”

    So my guess is Chris was about to say computer pixels. Stops himself and makes the fuckup hilarious. ‘p-ah-pussy’

    Not Red Dwarf, but for years I thought they were singing ‘Cookie Street’ in the end theme tune of Only Fools and Horses. I used to wonder why a British sitcom full of working class English folk were using such an Americanism… (Mind you I always think of those biscuits with the chocolate chips as cookies.)

    In The Inquisitor, I always misheard Kryten’s line, “Virgil’s ‘Aeneid'” as “Virgil’s an idiot”. It wasn’t until I got the DVD and read the subtitles that I knew what the line actually was. In fact, I’ve just put it on now and had to check again. :/

    I always misheard the line as being “Ah, Homer’s Iliad”.

    Well, I didn’t, but that’s what the line should have been, given the Iliad is the work which is ACTUALLY about Agamemnon and Helen of Troy, which the Aeneid isn’t.

    This isn’t a mishearing more a smutty assumption. From Back in the Red (part 3, or part 2) :

    Kochanski : I don’t know what got into me
    Lister : Nothing, sadly

    Having not seen the episode in a while, I, um, assumed the line was:

    Kochanski : I don’t know what came over me
    Lister : Nothing, sadly.

    I can imagine ‘came over’ being the line in an earlier draft, before Doug maybe chickened out and decided ‘got into’ was perhaps not quite as graphic a mental image for a 9pm BBC2 audience.

    I don’t know. ‘In Chloe’ would be better than ‘over Chloe’ by my reckoning…..although I’d take either…

    Nah, the early draft was:

    Kochanski : I don’t know what bent me over and fucked me up the arse.
    Lister : Nothing, sadly.

    Alas, this was omitted because it didn’t actually make sense within the context of the story.

    Ah well.
