For those not familiar with this one quote, they're standing in front of a giant tree stump w/ litter all around it. And on a related note:

RIMMER: Lister, don't you ever stop and wonder: why are we here? What's the grand purpose?

LISTER: Why does it have to be such a big deal? Why can't it be like, like, human beings are a planetary disease? Like the Earth's got German measles or facial herpes, right? And that's why all of the other planets give us such a wide berth. It's like, "Oh, don't go near Earth! It's got human beings on it, they're contagious!"

RIMMER: So you're saying, Lister, you're an intergalactic, pus-filled cold sore! At last, Lister, we agree on something.
