Another source of humor Adams employed was silly names just for the fun of it. One of the most recognizable of which might be…

Slartibartfast : Your friends are safe, you can trust me.

Arthur Dent : Trust a man who won’t even tell me his name?

Slartibartfast : Well, um, my name is, um, it’s


Slartibartfast : Slartibartfast.

Arthur Dent : What?

Slartibartfast : I *said* it wasn’t important.

Thanks for the loving take on a long time favorite of mine.
