* CosmicPlaything: Not just Arthur Dent this time but Rob McKenna, the trucker who is a rain god and has absolutely no idea. All he knew was that he constantly had a literal rain cloud over his head. And had catalogued two hundred and thirty-one separate types of rain. The clouds loved him and want to be near him, but he didn't see it that way. After Arthur suggests he show his journal of all the rain (mainly to get the creepy trucker to stop telling ''him'' about it), he ''does''. As a result, according to Murray Bost-Henson, his status as a rain attractor apparently becomes recognized internationally, and several nations (namely those who rely on pleasant weather to attract tourists) and major airports paid him to stay away at all times.

* BritishStuffiness: Arthur invokes this when telling the biscuit story. When a man took one of his biscuits, "did what any red-blooded Englishman would do"; ignored it.

When a man took one of his biscuits, "did what any red-blooded Englishman would do"; ignored it. -->Well, it's not the sort of thing you're trained for, is it? I searched my soul, and discovered that there was nothing anywhere in my upbringing, experience, or even primal instincts to tell me how to react to someone who has quite simply, calmly, sitting right there in front of me, stolen one of my biscuits.
