Calvin & Hobbs said it best: The surest sign that there is intelligent life out there is that none of it has ever tried to contact us.

    For those not familiar with this one quote, they're standing in front of a giant tree stump w/ litter all around it. And on a related note:

    RIMMER: Lister, don't you ever stop and wonder: why are we here? What's the grand purpose?

    LISTER: Why does it have to be such a big deal? Why can't it be like, like, human beings are a planetary disease? Like the Earth's got German measles or facial herpes, right? And that's why all of the other planets give us such a wide berth. It's like, "Oh, don't go near Earth! It's got human beings on it, they're contagious!"

    RIMMER: So you're saying, Lister, you're an intergalactic, pus-filled cold sore! At last, Lister, we agree on something.
