        They’re referring to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

        Specifically, they’re talking about a creature (the bowl of petunias created high above the surface of an airless world as a byproduct of a star drive powered by improbability) who has reincarnated many, many times, but in every life is killed by an otherwise inoffensive and constantly bewildered British man.
