* ''Radio/TheHitchHikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' sees the Heart of Gold materialise in what Ford and Zaphod initially take to be a massive chilly marble cave. When the floor of the cave tips under them and sends them skidding towards the entrance, they realise they are in fact several miles above the surface of the bleak planet of Brontitall. [[note]]they are in fact in the plastic cup part of a hyper-massive memorial statue celebrating Arthur Dent Throwing The Cup Back At The Nutrimatic Drinks Dispenser, the symbolic act that caused humanity to rebel against dependence on robots and machines[[/note]]. Zaphod ends up danging by his fingertips on the rim of the Cup, [[UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}} swearing terribly at Ford]], who is not disposed to assist on the grounds that there's no point.
