Trivia About Gazpacho Soup
Red Dwarf, the BBC comedy science fiction series, was based on the adventures of Chief Technician Arnold Rimmer, David Lister, Holly the ships computer, Cat and Kryton the android. Arnold Rimmer was a hologram. He was a minor crew member who caused the death of the ship's entire crew, other than Dave Lister who was punished by being in stasis, by causing a radiation leak. The last words of Rimmer were Gazpacho Soup. Holly brought him back as the ship's only hologram to keep Lister sane. Lister watches recordings of Arnold's death and eventually finds out why Gazpacho Soup were his last words. He tells Dave Lister that he was a young officer cadet proudly at the Captain's table having dinner. He was brought soup and whilst the table were tucking into the delicious soup he returned it to the steward, complaining loudly that it was cold and to bring him back a piping hot bowl. The Captain and his guests had a good laugh at Rimmer and he never recovered from the humiliation.
