Episode 23 (Fit The Twenty-Third)
On the planet Nowwhat, despair once again becomes the order of the day for Arthur Dent. Attempting to hitch a ride back to Earth, Arthur has found that apparently Nowwhat occupies Earth’s coordinates in space-time – and he still hasn’t found Fenchurch, who vanished without a trace when their ship jumped into hyperspace. What Arthur doesn’t realize is that it is he who has vanished – he’s jumped into a slightly parallel dimension where Trillian is a blonde, American news reporter, Zaphod Beeblebrox is delivering pizza, and Ford Prefect is having to break into the corporate offices of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. But the corporate culture at the Guide has changed – and for anyone trying to break in, it’s changed fatally.
