You've got a mistake in there i think. Question 3, that's Lister's all time greatest fear, not Rimmers. it happens in the episode when Kryten's eyeball crawls up Lister's trouser leg, and he types into the computer to tell Cat that it's his greatest fear. Rimmer's greatest fear is being buried up to his neck in sand, having his face smeared with jam and then being covered in fire ants, which happens in the episode Better Than Life.
