Goofs

Deep Thought is speaking about building the computer Earth, and he calls it "the computer who will give the answer to the ultimate question". Actually the sentence should be the other way round: "the question to the ultimate answer" - they already have the answer (42). See more »

Quotes

Lunkwill: Who are you? Get out of here!
Majikthise: I am Majikthise.
Vroomfondle: And I demand that I am Vroomfondle.
Majikthise: It's all right, you don't need to demand that.
Vroomfondle: All right. I am Vroomfondle. And that is not a demand. That is a solid fact. What we demand is solid facts!
Majikthise: No, we don't, that is precisely what we don't demand.
Vroomfondle: We don't demand solid facts. What we demand is a total absence of solid facts. I demand that I may or may not be Vroomfondel.
