quote Dennis Hutch had stepped up into the top seat when its founder had died of a lethal overdose of brick wall, taken while under the influence of a Ferrari and a bottle of tequila.

quote Ford gave him a three-Pan-Galactic-Gargle-Blaster look, in other words a rather unsteady one.

The Belcerebons used to cause great resentment amongst neighbouring races by being one of the most enlightened, accomplished and, above all, quiet civilisations in the Galaxy. As a punishment for this behaviour, which was held to be offensively self-righteous and provocative, a Galactic tribunal inflicted on them that most cruel of all social diseases: telepathy.
Now, in order to prevent themselves broadcasting every slightest thought to anyone within a five-mile radius, they have to talk loudly and continuously about the weather, their little aches and pains, the match this afternoon and what a noisy place Kakrafoon has suddenly become.

quote You come into the rehearsal room with no Douglas and a script that he hasn’t worked on, and no matter how good the person is who follows, Douglas was a one-off. The way Douglas came at things, the way he injected his creativity and just sheer brains…I mean, he was very, very bright, he was very clever and very literate, and wrote beautifully, and made things for you to say that were better than other people did.

— Lalla Ward, The Doctor and Douglas (via meddlesomehusssy)

quote Douglas was a freelance, he did extremely little work as far as I could tell. He got up in the morning, made some tea, a lot of tea he used to drink, and sat in the bath, all day, as far as I knew. And I was a young radio producer in Light Entertainment at the BBC andI used to come home at about 7, and Douglas would be in the bath, he’d jump out of the bath saying, “Right, Lloydie, let’s do some work now!”.

— John Lloyd, The Doctor and Douglas

quote Arthur Dent was grappling with his consciousness the way one grapples with a lost bar of soap in the bath.

Many worlds have now banned their act altogether, sometimes for artistic reasons but most commonly because the band’s public address system contravenes many local strategic arms limitations treaties. This has not, however, stopped their earnings from pushing back the boundaries of pure hyper-mathematics, and their chief research accountant has recently been appointed professor of neo-mathematics for both his general and special theories of Disaster Area tax returns, in which he proves that the whole fabric of the space time continuum is not merely curved, it is in fact totally bent.

quote We live in strange times. We also live in strange places: each in a universe of our own. The people with whom we populate our universes are the shadows of whole other universes intersecting with our own. Being able to glance out into this bewildering complexity of infinite recursion and say things like, “Oh, hi, Ed! Nice tan. How’s Carol?” involves a great deal of filtering skill for which all conscious entities have eventually to develop a capacity in order to protect themselves from the contemplation of the chaos through which they seethe and tumble. So give your kid a break, okay?

quote Nowadays, because of the plethora of one-to-many communication we have, if a plane crashes in India we may get terribly anxious about it, but our anxiety doesn’t have any impact… We’ve all become twisted and disconnected and it’s not surprising that we feel very stressed and alienated in the world because the world impacts on us but we don’t impact the world.
