Six Word Stories

An exercise in word conservation. Try to top the person above you. Stories must be six words or less, may not contain abbreviations. Have fun!

It sounded great at the time.

Strictly speaking, that's not a trilogy.

On the other hand: Cool points!

Ah, but it is!
Wikipedia wrote:The novels are described as "a trilogy in five parts", having been described as a trilogy on the release of the third book, and then a "trilogy in four parts" on the release of the fourth book. The US edition of the fifth book was originally released with the legend "The fifth book in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's Trilogy" on the cover. Subsequent re-releases of the other novels bore the legend "The [first, second, third, fourth] in the increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker's trilogy". In addition, the blurb on the fifth book humorously describes the book as "the book that gives a whole new meaning to the word 'trilogy'".

Ah, Douglas Adams, you crazy guy.

Anway, another trilogy. Sort of. Originally.
