Freefall 1761

Troubles with the baker and pies for all

We're not even! He stole from me! And I'm losing money by being away from my shop.
I understand. By having a pie fight instead of delivering reaction mass, we're losing a bundle as well.
We're losing money by being here?
We're losing A LOT of money by being here.
Mr. Baker Sir! My most sincere apologies. What can I do to make this right?
Let go of my wallet or pies start flying here and now!

We've lost the baker. We're also kind of lost ourselves.
No need to fret. There is a secret french ninja technique for this exact problem.
Hey, if it's a stupid idea and it works, then it isn't stupid.

Ah, heck. It's just one of the warehouse robots.
Didn't see that coming.
After we rescue the baker, I intend to have a word with their programmers.

Sam! Sam! There's people here trying to rescue the baker!
That shouldn't be a problem.
We've been able to come to an agreement.
Then I guess I shouldn't have hit them with pies.
Just like back home. By the time you've finished with negotiations, your allies have already started a shooting war.

We need to talk to the baker's rescuers.
No. They've been hit. They're not going to talk. They're coming in with pies blazing.
Then we have to accept responsibility for Helix's actions.
Again, no. We've inflicted harm, upon the enemy. Rules of war state we may now cowardly run away and still maintain honor.

Hello. Can we talk about this?
That's it. My next engineer has got to have slower reflexes.

Out of the way, Florence. We've passed the point for talk.
This must now be settled with sweat, terror, and cherry filling.
Did we just lose our heavy hitter because of a thrown pie pan?
On the plus side, she did take out the guy with the ninja while chasing it.

In the late 19th century, the Frisbie Pie Company was a pie maker. Clever children once noticed that if you turn over a branded pie plate and throw it   - it slides through the air, and began to play with them, shouting “Frisbee!” while throwing, so as not to accidentally hit his friends in the forehead (plates were metal, it could split the skull). A little later, the toy manufacturer Wham-O came up with a plastic version of the hovering plate and, so as not to get sued for coinciding the name, released it under the brand name “Frisbee.

Excuse me. These two did come to rescue me. It would be ungrateful not to side with them.
You could claim the Stockholm Syndrome and side with us.
The Stockholm Syndrome has only been proven with human captors, not robots or alien squids.
Let me sweeten the deal. I'll give you your wallet back. Minus the money I found inside, of course.
Should I consider that your final answer, or would you like more time to think about it?

Stockholm syndrome In short -the hostages begin to sympathize with the captor.

The Mayor joins in

Is the use of a pie still an accepted method of disagreeing with the policies of an established political party?
Why, yes. I believe it is.
I disagree highly with your policies on artificial intelligence!
Hey! You can't do that and run off! You have to fill out a form!

Pie'd by an artificial intelligence. That's not on the form. How am I supposed to complete the paperwork if reality won't conform to the way we say it should be?
I also disagree with your established policies on artificial intelligence.
What? Why?
Oh, My. I'm going to be seeing a lot of pies in the next few seconds, aren't I?
