Quotes:
From "The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy: Episode #1.1" (1981)
Arthur Dent: How did we get here?
Ford Prefect: We hitched a lift.
Arthur Dent: Excuse me! Are you trying to say that we just stuck out our thumbs and some green bug-eyed monster stuck his head out and said "Hi, fellas, hop in, I can take you as far as the Basingstoke roundabout"?
Ford Prefect: Well, the thumb's an electronic sub-ether device, the roundabout's at Barbard's Star, six light-years away, but otherwise that's more or less it.
Arthur Dent: And the bug-eyed monster?
Ford Prefect: [grinning] It's green, yes.
