I don't know what anyone is thinking...
I will attempt to translate based on pure speculation. However for amusement value, I will try to put it in the form of a Hitchhiker's exchange.Knightshade

Zaphod: Did the monkey say something?
Arthur: I resent that, I think I have a right to know whats going on.
Arthur: Perhaps we should ask Slartibartfast.
Zaphod: Quiet, I'm thinking.
Ford: Perhaps that would be easier if you stopped drinking.
Zaphod: I'm not thinking with that head, so why shouldn't I have a good time?
Arthur: Look, I still don't know what's going on?
Ford: Arthur, I expect you're quite used to that by now.
Zaphod: I have this really awesome plan that will solve all our problems.
Trillian: Not again. (on intercom) Marvin, Zaphod is working on another of his brilliant plans again.
Marvin: (on intercom) Here I am, brain the size of a Galaxy reduced to answering the intercom. Did I mention my diodes hurt?
Trillian: Any update on the automated trading system?
Marvin: Silly me, I understood that you wanted the engines fixed before we crashed into the sun. I keep forgetting I work for such superior intellects. Perhaps I should shine your shoes or something in gratitude.
Trillian: Fix the engines.
Marvin: I knew you'd say that.
Eddie: Incoming, transmission, I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I will.
Slartibartfast: (on Monitor) If you people can spare a moment from crashing into stars, I think you should know great things are afoot.
Zaphod: I know, I'm on my fourth round right now. Whee. (passes out)
Slartibartfast: So human, have you decided to donate your brain in the service of the universe yet?
Eddie: End transmission. I'm sure that cleared everything up because I know I feel a lot better. By the way, we'll crash into the sun in T minus ten minutes. Isn't that exciting?Edit: For clarification, no insults were personally intended. I was just trying to keep characters in character.
