And then because of the success of that damn book, suddenly I have to do another book, and another book and another book. I'm not somebody who's set out to be a novelist per se. It just happened to be the clearest success I've had. I didn't want to be trapped into just sitting in a room typing. It's not the life I have envisaged for myself--sitting in a room typing for year after year. I kind of wanted to do something that would be...I'd get to work with a lot people, have a lot of fun, have a lot of meetings, have lots of brainstorming, lots of clever people around. I've also a chance to get a lot of toys. So that's what this was. It was a kind of mid-life crisis project.

Buffy: I spend all my time in the dark here anyway, it's not like I'd be at a game you know, with my friends where someone could see me in my new monster part.
Angel: Hey...I won't let anything happen to you if I can help it, and no matter what I'll love you even if you're covered with slime.
Buffy: I liked everything until that part.
#15: 264 geeks favorited:
Buffy: What are you doing here?
Angel: It's a dangerous time you know, with faith.
Buffy: Yeah Faith, she well, Faith what can you say about her.
Angel: I just wanted to make sure that you're, you know, ok, that you're safe.
Buffy: Well the fact that you're right here, does this mean that Faith is around? Are you keeping me safe by tracking me or are you tracking her?
Angel: I'm tracking you.

One of the problems of taking things apart and seeing how they work--supposing you're trying to find out how a cat works--you take that cat apart to see how it works, what you've got in your hands is a non-working cat. The cat wasn't a sort of clunky mechanism that was susceptible to our available tools of analysis.

Lady Sondes' match surprises, but does not offend me; had her first marriage been of affection, or had their been a grown-up daughter, I should not have forgiven her; but I consider everybody as having a right to marry once in their lives for love, if they can.

Anyone who confuses the story of a spaceship careening through space with the sinking of a ship in 1912 is probably very, very dumb. Not that I mind selling the game to very, very dumb people. Their money is as good as anyone else's.

It's funny when you've got to sit down and write something that's funny you think "Oh God..." That terrible need to be funny all the time. And when you've got to do something serious "Now hang on, wouldn't it be funny if we did this..."

"No, wait ... I'll tell you something," said Zaphod. "I freewheel a lot. I get an idea to do something, and, hey, why not, I do it. I reckon I'll become President of the Galaxy, and it just happens, it's easy. I decide to steal this ship. I decide to look for Magrathea, and it all just happens. Yeah, I work out how it can best be done, right, but it always works out. It's like having a Galacticredit card which keeps on working though you never send off the cheques. And then whenever I stop and think - why did I want to do something? - how did I work out how to do it? - I get a very strong desire just to stop thinking about it. Like I have now. It's a big effort to talk about it."
