The second season begins with the gang coming across a crashed space shuttle where the service mechanoid, Kryten, is still attending to the officers, even though they have long since passed away. The crew take Kryten back aboard Red Dwarf where Rimmer puts him to work cleaning, cooking, ironing etc. Lister tries to convince him that he doesn’t have to do any of his service duties anymore and can do his own thing. He fails until Kryten is painting a portrait of Rimmer and his rebellious side opens up, painting Rimmer sitting on the toilet, and then insulting him before jumping on a space bike wearing a leather jacket, a-la Marlon Brando.
