    From that source of all wisdom, The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy Wikipedia:

    At the end of the radio series (and television series, as well as the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe) Arthur Dent, having escaped the Earth's destruction, potentially has some of the computational matrix in his brain. He attempts to discover The Ultimate Question by extracting it from his brainwave patterns, as abusively suggested by Ford Prefect, when a Scrabble-playing caveman spells out forty two. Arthur pulls random letters from a bag, but only gets the sentence "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?"

        "Six by nine. Forty two."

        "That's it. That's all there is."
        "I always thought something was fundamentally wrong with the universe"
