Mr. Jamie often asks "Are there any answers?"  The answer to give when he asks that is "Forty Two" (it is from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." It is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything - An alien race built a giant super computer to figure out what the meaning of life is.  After millions of years of computing it came up with the answer "42.").
