You're staying. That means Sam and I won't be together as much.

True. There'll be some changes now that there's three of us.

I hate change.

Would you rather fly in a ship just you and Sam repaired?

Well, I suppose change is better than blowing up on the runway.

See? This won't be so bad.

Look on the bright side. You now have two friends on the ship instead of one.

You'll be my friend?

Of course.

JOY!

Helix, I like you, but if you're not off my back in two seconds, I'm going to RIP YOUR LOW BID HEAD OFF!

Give me a hug.

Great Asimov, what's going on out there?? (Robot Spike)

Being loyal to Sam, would you, hypothetically speaking, help him commit an illegal act?

That would depend whether the act is for a noble and moral purpose, or if it's just for personal gain.

Oh, it's definitively the personal gain one.

Why do I feel this question isn't near as hypothetical as I hoped it would be?

To answer your question, I would never help Sam commit a crime. If I thought he was about to commit one, I would stop him.

You know, this is really going to put a damper on our Thursday activity night.

Helix, how can you even THINK about breaking the law?

Sam's been teaching me.

He says that blind obedience to the law could result in robots supporting a tyranny. We have to decide for ourselves if a law is just or oppressive.

Sam's teaching you ethics?

No, shoplifting. But I'm sure ethics will follow real soon.

Sam's teaching you to shoplift?

Yes, but I'm not very good at it.

I try, but I can't take something out of a store without paying for it.

Then Sam tried to show me how. I tackled him at the doorway.

Sigh. I've got so much more to fix here than just the ship.

I'll talk to Sam. I'm sure I can convince him that honesty is the best policy.

Poor Florence. She has no idea of the situation she's gotten herself into.

I've been told I can be very persuasive.

Poor Sam. He has no idea of the situation he's gotten himself into.

Why, most people learn after just one or two maulings.

I think there's something stuck in this pipe.

I was right. It's my head.

Florence! I've got my head stuck in the pipe! I can't see anything!

Hold still. I'll have you free in a moment.

I'm free, but it's still not much of an improvement.

This is really stuck.

It's gone forever! I'm a headless Helix!

Even worse, the pump won't work as well because of my head loss.

No, no. I can get it out. It just needs a little mechanical persuasion.

Something tells me I'm going to have a real headache once it gets reattached.
