    If I drill through the Earth...

    I would first pass through solid matter (lithosphere), then molten (asthenosphere), then solid (mantle), then molten (outer core), then solid (inner core), then repeat in reverse, right?
    So the planet has three solid zones and two molten ones?

    At the pressures created, I wonder if beyond a certain point it would certainly seem quite solid, "molten" or not.

    And with those temperatures, even the solid parts ooze around like wet clay.
