After the Earthling Arthur Dent
escaped from Frankie and Benji mouse, they were forced to come up with the ultimate question
of Life, The Universe, And Everything
by themselves. They had the answer already - 42
, but needed a plausible question that would satisfy all interested parties. Their first idea: "What's yellow and dangerous?
" was rejected on the grounds that it didn't fit the answer.
Finally, Frankie arrived at "How many roads must a man walk down?", to which Benji replied:
"Yes, that's excellent! Sounds very significant without actually tying you down to meaning anything at all. How many roads must a man walk down? Forty-two. Excellent, excellent, that'll fox 'em. Frankie baby, we are made!"
