Sounds interesting but I don't recognize the reference.

It's from Red Dwarf, a british comedy set ~ 3 million years into the future. It was a great show, somewhere in the void between space balls and star trek. A giant spaceship with only 4 crew: a single human survivor, a mutated cat, an android and a hologram of a dead crew member (the one responsible for killing all the rest, through being a fool rather than malicious intent). So it was them with lots of bad jokes, cheap effects and a low budget (iirc the main character, lister, didn't have his signature leather jacket for an entire season because someone lost it.)
Definately worth a watch.
