Red Dwarf again. This is from the Episode: Quarantine.

The observation window depolarises, revealing RIMMER. He is NOT in uniform.

RIMMER: Is something amiss?

LISTER: (Slight quaver in his voice) Amiss? God no, what could possibly be amiss?

RIMMER: You don’t think there’s anything amiss? I’m sitting here wearing a red and white checked gingham dress and army boots and you think that’s un-amiss?

CAT: No, of course not. It’s just that we thought you had gone nuts! We were tryin’ to humour you.

RIMMER: I was just doing a little test — a little test to see if you had gone crazy.

He abruptly tenses and lets out a horrible yell.

RIMMER: CHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! If there is one thing I can’t stand it’s crazy people.

LISTER: Well we’ve passed the test, Rimmer. You can let us out.

RIMMER: I can’t let you out.

LISTER: Why not?

RIMMER: Because the King of the Potato People won’t let me. I begged him. I got down on my knees and wept. He wants to keep you here. Keep you here for ten years.

CAT: Could we see him?

RIMMER: See who?

CAT: The King.

RIMMER: Do you have a magic carpet?

LISTER: Yeah, a little three-seater.

RIMMER: So, let me get this straight. You want to fly on a magic carpet to see the King of the Potato People and plead with him for your freedom, and you’re telling me you are completely sane?! I think that warrants 2 hours of W.O.O.

LISTER: What’s W.O.O?

CAT: You had to ask.

RIMMER: With … out … oxygen. No oxygen for 2 hours. That will teach you to be bread baskets

He disappears.

LISTER: What do we do?

CAT: I think our only hope’s the Potato King.
