There cometh a series of noises like unto an ancient steam engine starting up and rapidly receding into the distance.

This is followed by a distant "BANG!"

A piece of paper flutters form the machine. On it is written "Marvin detected the presence of traces of hydrocarbons and has removed the suit to a safe place for destruction in case of suit-bombing. Shame -- it was just my colour and style."

Inserts a copy of the rare misprinted edition of War & Piece ...
