"He was so beautiful in the water," she said. "And when Andre held him up. I couldn't believe him when I saw him out of the window and you with your mob following you."“We'II get a small one for us to eat. They're really wonderful. A small one ought to be grilled with butter and with herbs. They're like striped bass at home."
"I'm excited about the fish," she said. "Don't we have wonderful simple fun?" They were hungry for lunch and the boltIe of white wine was c'old and they dr~nk it as they ate the celery remoulade and the smaIl ra~ish.es and the home pickled mushrooms from the big glass jar. The bass was grilled and the grin marks showed on the silver skin and the butter melted on the hot plate. There was sliced lemon' to press on the bass and fresh bread from the bakery and the wine cooled their tongues of the heat of the fried potatoes. It was good light, dry, cheerful unknown white wine· and the restaurant was proud of it. "We're not great conversationalists at meals," the girl said. "Do I bore you, darling?" The young man laughed. "Don't laugh at me, David. "I wasn't. No. You don't bore me. I'd be happy looking at you if you never said a word." He poured her another small glass of the wine and filled his own. "I have a big surprise. I didn't tell you, did I?" the girl said. "What sort of surprise?" "Oh it's very simple but it's very complicated." "Tell me." "No. You might like it and maybe you couldn't stand it." "It sounds too dangerous.'" "It's dangerous," she said. "But don't ask me. I'm going up to the room if I may."

A tall figure appeared silhouetted in the hatchway. It walked down the ramp and stood in front of Arthur. You're a jerk, Dent," it said simply. It was alien, very alien. It had a peculiar alien tallness, a peculiar alien flattened head, peculiar slitty little alien eyes, extravagantly draped golden ropes with a peculiarly alien collar design, and pale grey-green alien skin which had about it that lustrous shine which most grey-green faces can only acquire with plenty of exercise and very expensive soap. Arthur boggled at it. It gazed levelly at him. Arthur's first sensations of hope and trepidation had instantly been overwhelmed by astonishment, and all sorts of thoughts were battling for the use of his vocal chords at this moment.“Whh ...?" he said. “Bu ... hu ... uh ..." he added. “Ru ... ra ... wah ... who?" he managed finally to say and lapsed into a frantic kind of silence. He was feeling the effects of having not said anything to anybody for as long as he could remember. The alien creature frowned briefly and consulted what appeared to be some species of clipboard which he was holding in his thin and spindly alien hand.”Arthur Dent?" it said. Arthur nodded helplessly. “Arthur Philip Dent?" pursued the alien in a kind of efficient yap. “Er ... er ... yes ... er ... er," confirmed Arthur. “You're a jerk," repeated the alien, \a complete asshole." “Er ..." The creature nodded to itself, made a peculiar alien tick on its clipboard and turned briskly back towards the ship.

Kramer walked slowly over to the port and stood staring silently out, his arms folded. Beyond the ship a myriad fragments of light gleamed, countless coals glowing in the dark void. Stars, suns, systems. Endless, without number. A universe of worlds. An infinity of planets, waiting for them, gleaming and winking from the darkness. He turned back, away from the port. “Where are we going?” He smiled at his wife, standing nervous and frightened, her large eyes full of alarm. “I don’t know where we are going,” he said. “But somehow that doesn’t seem too important right now…. I’m beginning to see the Professor’s point, it’s the result that counts.” And for the first time in many months he put his arm around Dolores. At first she stiffened, the fright and nervousness still in her eyes. But then suddenly she relaxed against him and there were tears wetting her cheeks. “Phil … do you really think we can start over again—you and I?” He kissed her tenderly, then passionately. And the spaceship shot swiftly through the endless, trackless eternity of the void….
