Upon returning from a bizarre meeting with a man named Wonko the Sane in California, Arthur and Fenchurch find that they have company when they get home – Ford Prefect has returned to Earth. As reluctant as Arthur is to give up the Earth again, he and Fenchurch both realize that they no longer fit in, and set off to see God’s Final Message to His Creations. Ford, in his purloined alien spacecraft (which created quite a stir in London), drops them off, and a chance encounter not only reveals the message, but the final words of Marvin the paranoid android. But it may turn out to be both the first and last time that Arthur and Fenchurch hitch a ride across the galaxy together.
