After his confrontation with Agrajag and learning to fly, Arthur decided to sit on an updraft while going through the contents of his bag that he had found near the collapsed mountain Agrajag was in. He was then hit in the back by the Longest Cocktail Party, a party that has gone on for Arkleseizure knows how long. For unknown reasons, some drunk rocket scientist party-goers outfitted the party with rocket boosters and artillery. It was on this party that Arthur regrouped with Slartibartfast, Ford Prefect, and Trillian, and also encounter Thor. It was also on this party that the Krikkit robots stole the Silver Bail of Peace ( better known as the Rory Award for The Most Gratuitous Use of the Word "Belgium" in a Serious Screenplay).
