* ImADoctorNotAPlaceholderImADoctorNotAPlaceholder: Marvin objects to the order of "freeze" because he assumes he's meant to freeze something.



* InsurmountableWaistHeightFence: Want to know why the Vogons all share an IdiotBall? Ford closes a knee-high white picket gate on the Vogons, who moan they have to go the ''other'' way around, thanks to their being extremely LawfulStupid.
** Even better: note that he also locks the gate by reaching over to ''their'' side and locking it.

* ShowerScene: Trillian has a (notably chaste, from-the-shoulders-up) one. Justified as she was spattered with the saliva of a Ravenous Bugblatter Beast.

* RaceLift: Ford Prefect is now played by [[BlackBestFriend a black American]]. The director/producers figured since Ford is an alien it doesn't really matter what his race is. It makes Arthur's comment "So, you're ''not'' from Guildford", and remarking Ford's accent was sort of off, even funnier.
** ButNotTooBlack: During a test shot where he holds Marvin's arm, he screams like a black gangsta. Which he decided not to use in the final shot.
