“Having not said anything the first time, it was somehow even more difficult to broach the subject the second time around.”
“This man is the bee's knees, Arthur, he is the wasp's nipples. He is, I would go so far as to say, the entire set of erogenous zones of every major flying insect of the Western world.”
“There was a point to this story, but it has temporarily escaped the chronicler's mind.”
“Life... is like a grapefruit. Well, it's sort of orangey-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy in the middle. It's got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people have half a one for breakfast.”

Arthur is back on planet Earth, though it was supposedly demolished by the Vogons in the first book. He tries to figure out what exactly has happened to him and the planet.
In the fourth and final book of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, Arthur Dent finds himself back on Earth on a cold and rainy night after hitchhiking throughout the galaxy. However, he could have sworn he saw it destroyed by the Vogons. Arthur hitches a ride to his house and meets Russell, the driver, and Fenny, Russell’s unconscious sister in the back seat. At his house, Arthur finds a curious bowl, clearly a present meant for him, with the inscription “So Long and Thanks.” Who is thanking Arthur? Does Arthur ever see Fenny again? Wasn’t the Earth already demolished? To find the answers all of these burning questions, read So Long and Thanks for All the Fish.
