Red Dwarf Trivia Questions

1. In 'Cured', a small group of infamous historical characters were onboard a research centre. What was the centre aiming to 'cure'?

From Quiz
Red Dwarf XII

Answer: Evil

The Red Dwarf crew came across a series of cryo-chambers on the research station. They apparently showed that people like Hitler and Vlad the Impaler had been cured of 'evil'.

From Quiz In Which Episode?

From Quiz All Seasons Misc.

Answer: Iron Balls

Rimmer begged Lister to address him as "Iron balls" in "Kryten", but Lister never did.
