Insult List

First published 5th September 2003.

Here we go... a complete list of insults used in the 52 episodes of Red Dwarf. Many of these are highly inventive, original and amusing, whereas others are mere variations on the word 'smeg'. Still, there are some interesting findings. The insults are listed alphabetically, and where there is more than one occurance of the insult being used, these are listed chronologically. Eventually, this document will include Red Dwarf Night, the Smeg Ups tapes, deleted scenes, maybe even the cast commentary. Stay tuned.
