Douglas Adams Quote

Douglas Adams Quote

Submitted By Mick Kolby (mr.kolby)


A script which displays quotes from the genius Douglas Adams, author of the hysterically funny series of books, summarized as "Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy", which also include a radio series, a TV series, stage play, record albums, computer game, graphic novels and a bath towel!

After installing the script, just type in /adams and a random quote will appear.

Have a nice day.

you should call this Hitchhicker's guide Quote, Adams has done lots of other stuff.

# by mr.kolby on 03/13/05 at 21:57:06

Yes he has, but these quotes are not just from the Hitchhiker's Guide.

Since you are a Douglas Adams fan, I am assuming you are a Red Dwarf fan... I would love to see a bunch of quotes from Red Dwarf especially the Lister's prime directives

# by sojuforall on 11/05/09 at 10:53:19

sorry I meant Rimmer's directives

this is so totally awesome! you should put in quotes from the game too though... chicken and bloody pistachios! any chicken you find is my chicken! and don't give any to that monkey!

It was a five part trilogy not a series ;)

Great stuff, now I'm off to the shops with my trusty towel!

GREAT! Question: any way to make it so it only displays one quote every time you use it? Instead of cycling through quotes every 10 seconds or whatever it does?

it was a 6 part episode of the first books. now im going to get the episodes from an ABC shop with my towel and watch them.

# by mr.kolby on 07/24/05 at 20:52:01

I'm glad you like it, folks.

wontoch: I don't know what you mean, it's supposed to only display only one quote when you use it.

Let me know if you guys want any changes to it.
