I thought Arthur said something more along the lines of Im going to have to rethink my lifestyle.

Belgium was the word that a woman at the flying cocktail party used egregiously in a screenplay, winning an award (which turned out to be part of the key to the dimensional spacetime prison in which the genocidally xenophobic inhabitants of Krikkit had been cooling their heels for the last few millennia).

IIRC.
