* LivingLegend: The Guide notes that towels (in addition to several legitimate uses) let you cultivate this image. If you can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy and still know where your towel is, then ''obviously'' you're a BadAss, and others will think nothing of loaning you some other minor item that you [[BlatantLies happened to recently misplace]].

Added DiffLines:

* OverlyLongGag: In most versions, Deep Thought stalls for a good while before giving the philosophers the answer to life, the universe, and everything, knowing that they were hoping for something a little more satisfying after waiting seventy millions years for it. This is especially so in the live action miniseries.
--> '''Deep Thought''': The answer is... ''[long pause]'' you're really not going to like it.

-->'''Zaphod''': Hey, that was smart thinking, earthman. Turning on the Infinite Improbability Drive. You just saved our lives!
-->'''Arthur''': Oh, it was nothing really.
-->'''Zaphod''': Oh, was it? Oh well, forget it then.
