Corrected entry: When Arthur first arrives on the Heart of Gold, Trillian shows himr where he can get some tea. However, she shows him a machine that gives something from a tube that is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea while there is a much better machine standing right next to it that would give you anything you crave just by reading your mind (a bagel, for instance). If Trillian had just shown him that machine, Arthur would have been drinking some good tea. The other machine is therefore totally useless.lionhead
Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film after the mice have tried to take Arthur's brain, the Vogons come to rescue Zaphod and they start to shoot at the whole group. While they are firing one can see a white smoke coming out of the guns. When Marvin wakes up and shoots them with the point of view gun, they all stop firing but a few of the Vogons still have white smoke coming out of their guns.willy martinez
Corrected entry: In the scene where Zaphod, Ford, and Arthur are trying to run away from the spatula like creatures on Vogsphere, they constantly get smacked in the face for saying "I think." However, a few scenes later, when the lunchbell on Vogsphere rings, a Vogon says "I think I'll have soup today." He should have gotten smacked for saying "I think," but nothing happens.
Corrected entry: When Ford and Arthur fall into space out of the Vogon ship, the Guide says that one can survive for about thirty seconds in the vacuum of space with a lungful of air. Yet, it takes longer than a minute for the Heart of Gold to appear, by which time Ford and Arthur should have run out of air.
Corrected entry: When Zaphod and Trillian have picked up the Point of View gun, they hear "mice" coming towards them. However, mice were only the projections into our dimension of the beings who built Deep Thought (and commissioned Earth). Since Zaphod and Trillian are now in the dimension where Deep Thought is, they should see these beings as human adults and children, as they appear on the video shown by Zaphod at the start.Moose
Corrected entry: When Arthur's cellphone is floating in Space you can hear something which sounds like "The person you have called is temporarily not available". This message is generated from the provider/network, not from the phone itself. Without earth there is no network so there would be no message at all.Bjoern_Buller
Corrected entry: As Ford and Arthur fall out the Vogon airlock, the Guide explains that someone can survive in vacuum for thirty seconds if they hold their breath. Actually, the opposite is true: if one exhales all air one can survive for several seconds. If one holds one's breath, the increased internal air pressure would cause a human to explode.Phoenix
Corrected entry: When Earth II is finished, it can be assumed that the location in space is not anywhere near that of the original. (Due to the bypass) That in mind, how do the people resolve the fact that all the constellations won't be the same? Now that earth is in a different location, won't all the stars in the sky also be different?
Corrected entry: If you take the letters of of the alphabet and turn them into numbers, A=1, B=2 etc., then covert "D Adams" (the writer of HHGTTG) to numbers, you get 4+1+4+1+13+19. Add them up, guess what you get? 42 - the answer to life, the universe and everything.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Slartibartfast is following Arthur and the crew out of the rebuilt house on the rebuilt Earth, a large white van drives past very conspicuously in the background. Now, it is only at the end of this scene that Arthur gives the go-ahead to restart life on the planet. And it does NOT belong to the fix-up crew - they are probably delivered the same way that Arthur and Slartibartfast are delivered - by the trolley thingy. And anyway, if it was theirs, it would be bright orange like the rest of their gear.
