Freefall 0111

A truck, a JATO rocket, and duct tape. Three great things that go great together!

All right, people, we have a situation here. What are the options?

Option one: Do nothing and let Sam smear himself across the landscape in a blazing fireball.

I LIKE that option!

So do I, but it would be bad for public relations. Okay, option two…

We can get one of the terraforming robots to catch them right about here.

If we succeed, we'll be heroes. If we fail, Sam crashes and becomes a crispy critter.

Don't you just love a win-win situation?

One of the terraforming robots, Sawtooth Rivergrinder, is coming up to catch us.

We're safe now. It's in Sawtooth's best interest that we get down safely.

We owe him money, don't we?

You know it.

Hey, Sawtooth!

Greetings, Sam. Do you have my money?

No, but you can't let us crash or you'll never get any money from us.

Not true. I'm also filming this for “World's Funniest Home Videos”.

Helix, it may be our bargaining position isn't as strong as we thought.

You can't just let us crash! It's in your programming or something!

You are correct, Sam. I can not idly stand by when I can easily prevent a person from coming to harm.

That's Pop Rivit's truck you're in, and I know he'd be upset if it were damaged.

What are you doing this far south, Rivergrinder?

I got into a fight with my boss.

He called me a big dumb robot. But he doesn't call me that any more.

Now he calls me a big dumb robot who ran a river through his living room.

So what if I don't know what a cup and saucer is. I'm optimized for my job. It's not like I'm dumb or something.

You guys don't think I'm dumb, do you?

Oh no.

No. No, not at all.

You're not just saying that to keep from being dropped to your imminent doom, are you?

Oh, no!

No.

No.

No.

Not at all.

You're lucky I was in the area. You could have been killed!

Hopefully this experience will keep you from doing something so stupid again.

Oh, it will, it will!

Helix, next time we make sure someone's ready to catch us BEFORE we light the JATO pack.

You're not going to leave us?

You owe me money. Pay it and I'll let you leave.

Hi! What's going on?

DOGGY!

I will be so glad when my species gets added to these guys data base.

Согласно комментарию автора, в этом месте отсутствует Коммнет (Интернет планеты Джина), поэтому автоматический запрос Пилозуба наткнулся только на данные от Хеликса. Ну а что у Хеликса в памяти, вы сами видите. В условиях активного освоения планеты настроено, что данные из двух источников достаточны для самоподтверждения, если нет дальнейших опровержений, поэтому надежда Фло на коррекцию поведения роботов впоследствии провалилась (Robot Spike)

So what's going on?

He won't let us leave!

He owes me money.

Do not!

Do too!

Do not!

Do too!

Don't!

Do!

Don't!

Do!

Sawtooth is an advanced model. I could never keep up an intellectual argument like that.
