  • Listers current age is hinted strongly at the beginning of this episode after Kryten wakes him up and wishes him a Happy Birthday, when Lister asked how old he was, he obviously found out that it was neither 30 or 40, which lead to his refusal to hear his actual age, it is implied that Lister could now be in his mid to late 40s, in fact hurtling towards 50.
  • When the Cat asks why he wasn't infected with the same virus that afflicted Lister, Rimmer suggests that the virus requires "more than two bytes of RAM", forgetting the possible explanation that the virus was only targeting employees of the Jupiter Mining Corporation, as Cat was never employed by the company and merely lives on the ship. (Kryten was made by DivaDroid International, which was not owned by M-Corp and Rimmer's light bee wasn't made by M-Corp)
    • This lends further weight to the theory that Rimmer's light bee was independently acquired at some point prior to RD: Backwards, and was therefore not part of Red Dwarf{'}s traditional equipment for projecting holograms.
  • The dialogue between Lister and Rimmer and the ending of this episode pays an honoured homage to the pilot episode RD: The End
  • The M-Corp computer programme has a much similar defeat to Pree in the Series X episode RD: Fathers and Suns
  • RD: The Last Day was when the story of when Rimmer received his first (French) kiss from his Uncle Frank after he got the wrong room and thought that he was his mother, which was surprising that the Cat and Kryten remembered it as they were heavily drunk at the time this story was told.
