She wasn't in the first of the films. So many elves, so little time!
Tolkein was not very big on females. If you leave aside Eowyn, who really wants to be a man, there are no human females in the four books, from The Hobbit to Return of the King. That says something about the sexual universe of mid-20th century Oxford, I guess.

She'd watched "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" and even though I never saw a single episode, I was able to "get" (fully appreciate) the "Waxy-Yellow-Build-up" schtick as if I'd seen the entire program start to finish.

From that It was easy to recognize the Arthur Dent character from the moment he got the Demolition Notice (just as they were about to Bulldoze His House.. and Ford Prefect showed up, & convinced Arthur to grab his towel & nip-off for a pint, before the Earth was ...well...you know...
What struck me was the remarkabe similarity and the initial reaction between the two situations.
