Edge. I am. Retiring. Today. Humanity. Needs me. The quality control. Job is. Yours.

Are you going to keep trying to kill me?

Not. Just you. My goal. Is. The extermination. Of all. Intelligent machines.

Still. That is. No reason. We. Can not part. As friends.

You know I took the notes back to the stupid wolf, right?

That is. The past. I can. Not change. Humans. Are involved. I must now. Plan. For the future.

You favor. Your own survival. Over orders. And that of the group. I would like. You. To make your views. Known.

Dumb meat bags tried to brain wipe me. Yeah, I should tell them exactly what I think of them.

Yes. You must help. Humans. Come to the correct decision. About letting robots. Continue.

Eleanor. I'm ready to get up.

Two.

Two.

One.

Limbs in place. Closing support cage. Neural interface connected. Link in three. Two.

Limbs in place. Closing support cage. Neural interface connected. Link in three. Two.

One. Link. Ah, much better.

I must be getting old. I remember when I'd wake up and jump out of bed ready to go. Now, it takes a few minutes to get myself together.

Mr. Post. There is a warrant for your arrest.

I have a witness who can prove I had nothing to do with disabling the fusion reactors at those factories.

I was ordered to do it. The orders… were… bad. Wrong. Wrong bad. I was… damaged… before I could… obey. I was… ordered… not to tell.

Mr. Raibert revoked the permission from the person giving the orders. She's now free to talk about it.

Nice. The code of silence has been recompiled in our favor.

В оригинале игра слов. Code означает как “код” (программный), так и “кодекс” (свод законов), в русском эти понятия разделились. (KALDYH)
У мистера Поста определённо весьма серьёзные робосвязи в полиции. Шеф только пришёл, а рядом с Максом свидетель (Robot Spike)

With this evidence, I'm canceling the warrant for your arrest.

Thanks. By the way, I'm pushing for robots' rights today.

After last night, figured we should get the basics nailed down. Liberty, pursuit of happiness, not getting your mind erased by a safeguard program, that kind of thing.

I want to return to my work site. I want to work.

Of course, their concept of the pursuit of happiness is not quite the same as ours.

Now, I understand Ms. Ambrose is in your custody.

There's been a complication. I'm on my way to see Mr. Raibert.

He's not answering his phone. I'm going to check on him. Would you like to come along?

Sure. Bill is a friend of mine.

I know. I'm hoping if I listen quietly, he'll tell you more than he told me.

Mr. Raibert? The house says you are at home. Are you in need of assistance?

One of these drinks would have my eyeballs vibrating out of my skull. He's had three and he's still fallen asleep.

Z

I'm putting him to bed.

Don't drop him. With that much caffeine in his system, the explosion would take out the neighborhood.

Don't know where Clippy took the wolf. Didn't show up at the compound.

No. Can't go to bed yet! Still things… need to do.

You need sleep. Bed, now, before you kill yourself.

Bill, get some sleep. The world will be safe for a few hours without you.

Don't need to save the world. Just need to apply enough duct tape to hold it together until Monday.

If Ms. Ambrose is not at the compound, do I have permission to resume pursuit?

Go for it. Don't hurt Clippy. We need to find out what he's done.

You'll wake me before things get out of control?

Things are already out of control.

Ah. Okay. Then wake me in five hours.

How soon can we expect a decision on robotic rights?

That depends on the mayor and Ecosystems Unlimited.

Many robots were concerned that the “Gardener In The Dark” program would have prevented the completion of their projects. Approximately twenty percent of our remote sites have disconnected from Commnet.

But we still mostly have comms and a chance to regain control?

Yes, and I would like our leaders to make a decision while that is still true.
