The Mayor joins in

We knew if we lost the factory, that was it for the colony. We had to go in.
We got four contracts and Helix thought of a way to save you from needing to shower! You may begin with the heaping of the praise!

Here is a joke based on Florence talking to a robot and the conversation is also interrupted by a robot -Helix. He and Sam bring Flo news important enough to break it immediately. The equivalent of this is now -the program's signal of a mail delivery or icq message. These signals are often made by developers to be quite pushy (annoying) (Durable)

Natural enemies often react by instinct. I'm going to follow and provide a sound track.
National Geographic would never have set one of their chases to “Yackety Sax”.

I'm supposed to help Sam. I'm also supposed to help the police. What would Jean Buridan do in this situation?
Heads, I help Sam. Tails, I help the police.
Option three. Prepare the ship for the mission. Not exactly an outcome I was expecting.

Writing. on this paper. “Please deliver. to Florence Ambrose. Important.”
Ridiculous. What could be? more important? than doing my job? Unless. this arm. somehow. puts humanity. in danger. I must. read the notes.
Humans. are our creators. and therefore perfect. but they can be. very inconvenient. when it comes to. scheduling.

What are you standing around for? Don't you know there's a police chase going on?
I swear, if it weren't for me, these guys wouldn't know what to do with themselves.

What a day. I got bread from an angry baker, fed an emu, got involved in a pie fight, and now I'm leading a parade.
In a way, it's a shame Florence found work for us. Imagine how much more I might have accomplished if I could have spent the whole day here.
