** [[Fridgelogic]] actually. Ford points out that because of the possibility Arthur is descended from the Golgifrinchans (spelling?) and the project ended right before completion, that the question may be distorted. Hence the wrong number.

* 'What do you get if you multiply 6 by 9'. Ordinary slip, typographical error? I can't find information anywhere...

** I can't speak for the TV series, but the radio-series release uses a cover of ''Sorcerer'', cuts or alters the Music/PinkFloyd bits (specifically, Marvin's humming is changed to only sound vaguely like something the band might release and Arthur's line is changed accordingly), and...um...really not quite sure what the Bee Gees thing is, but my guess is that the song played backwards sounds little enough like the song played forward for it to be a non-issue. In any case, if ''FreaksAndGeeks''--which includes songs by Music/TheWho, Music/VanHalen, Music/{{Rush}}, Music/{{Styx}}, Music/TheGratefulDead, Music/TheMoodyBlues, and Music/BillyJoel--can be released with it's soundtrack untouched, than I see no reason why licensing issues for Music/PinkFloyd and the Music/TheBeeGees should be ''that'' big a problem.

** You would also expect it to involve a lot of UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}}. Towels, one would assume, will be provided for necessary cleaning-up afterwards.

** Ford's relationship with Arthur never struck me as inconsistent with either personality: Ford is mercurial, capricious and shallow. He rounds on Arthur the second someone he regards as cool - Zaphod - appears. Enjoying Earth and liking its inhabitants is a guilty pleasure for Ford. Arthur exposes Ford's slight geekiness to others (particularly Zaphod, of course). Having Arthur tagging along once Ford is back playing with the cool kids is a bit like having invited someone from your secret D&D group to a party of your cool mates on the spur of the moment. Their relationship reminds me a lot of Vince and Howard's in TheMightyBoosh: one party may have delusions of being too cool for the other one but ultimately that's the person they always return to.
