** "I wonder if it'll be friends with me? Hello, ground!"
** "Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was, 'OhNoNotAgain'. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the universe than we do now."

** Later, Oolon Colluphid released a ''fourth'' book, ''Well, That About Wraps It Up for God.'' Which means Douglas Adams wasn't the only one writing an increasingly inaccurately-named 'trilogy'.

to:

* The trigger happy cops giving Beeblebrox an ultimatum:
-->'''Shooty:''' Beeblebrox, either you let us arrest you, and beat you up a little - though not too much, because [[BlatantLies we are opposed to senseless violence]] - or we blow up this entire planet!
-->'''Bang-Bang:''' And also, one or two others we saw on the way in! ''(the two nods triumphantly at one another)''

** Before that, the Vl'hurg and Gh'gravahnt War, depicted as an 80s video game, complete with score (final score - 1900 all). Then the dog gets its own score.
* From when the ship lands on Magrathea, Zaphod tries bigging things up.
-->'''Zaphod:''' ''(as music builds up)'' We are not just going to be amazing. We are not just going to be spectacular. We are going to be... AMAZINGLY SPECTACULAR.
-->''(music reaches crescendo)''
-->'''Marvin:''' Sounds ''awful''.




to:

* The entire discussion on the Universe, its population (none, apparently, due to convoluted reasoning. Any people you do meet can be dismissed as the products of a deranged imagination), money (none... sort of. There is money, but it's either impossible to use, or has collapsed), and sex (a heck of a lot, because all those imaginary people have to do ''something'' with their time.)

*** In the third book, we ''do'' find out why the bowl of petunias thinks this. And we don't find out more about the nature of the universe.



-->'''Guide:''' The marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation defines a robot as "your plastic pal who's fun to be with". The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy describes the marketing division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation as "a bunch of mindless jerks who will be first against the wall when the revolution comes". Curiously, a copy of the Encyclopedia Galactica that had fallen through a time warp describes them as "a bunch of mindless jerks who were the first against the wall when the revolution came".

to:

* Deep Thought pointing out to the philosophers how the wait for the Answer could benefit them.
--->'''Deep Thought:''' So long as you keep slagging each other off in the popular press, and as long as you have good agents, you can keep yourselves on the gravy train for life. How does that sound?
** In the book, the second flashback confirms that the two philosophers did exactly that, becoming the most celebrated pundits of all time.


Added DiffLines:

** The firelighters are labelled "another great idea from Beeblebrox Enterprises". Explains both so much, and so little.
