  1. What about the Point of View gun from Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy?! That’s my favorite.
    And in response to the often stated point on the episode: “Every tool is a weapon, if you hold it right.”

    • The ‘Point of View Gun’… how could we have forgotten that?

      That is definitely in my top three, but I don’t remember what they are right now so I don’t know which one it replaces.

      And how about “Every weapon can be used as a tool, for good or ill, depending on how you use it.”

  2. I just realized (listening to this episode) that I said “you can’t trust anything in front of a pipe organ”.

    I honestly don’t remember saying that.
    And I’m sure there are millions-plus religious people who might strongly disagree, but I think there is still some truth in my statement.

    I think I’m going to ask my wife to have that quote written on my headstone.
