Freefall 2181

You don't have to be destroyed. You can buy yourself for your scrap value.
After the horrors of my life, do not deny me destruction.
I know I'm taking advantage here. Will you help me test some programs? It will be dangerous, but you could help save millions.
Perform your tests. I do not fear oblivion, only its absence.
Well, don't hold it against me that I do my best to keep you safe and alive.

I want this, and this, and even though I don't know what it is, I definitely want this.
Florence has been gone a long time. She needs to hurry up.
If I'm left alone here much longer, I'm not going to be able to move.

Are you done? I need help carrying stuff.
Does this A.I. belong to you? It is attempting to do me a disservice.
He's… depressed. I don't want him destroying himself.
I am to report to the scrap yard for decommissioning.
Sam, if I pay, will you buy him for his scrap value? If he belongs to you, he'll obey your orders.
You're giving me a minion? You're the best engineer ever!

I'll transfer money to you out of my bank account. I can have my own bank account here.
Speaking of which, have you figured out the money angle?
Mr. Kornada is taking risks. Personal risks. Trust me on this. Somehow, someway, he's figured out how to make money on this program.
Be nice if we knew how.
Definitely. He's got something going, and it would be a smart back up plan for us to be in on it.

I've come up with several ways to block the program. It's just… a good programmer could find and undo my work. I need to buy at least three days and I'm not sure these are hidden well enough.
Want to know what the hardest thing in the world to find is? Something that isn't there.
Sam, if you weren't a hideous squid thing in an environment suit, I would kiss you.
No, you wouldn't. I haven't survived this long by letting sharp, pointy teeth get near my head.

I'll meet you back at the ship. There are a few preparations I need to make.
I want to talk to the robots and this is going to be tricky. I'm a non human sabotaging a human project and potentially putting humans at risk.
It will cause some serious problems with my plan to save the robots if they kill me in the process of warning them.

Why are you depressed?
I am a student of the Immortal Bard. Yet it is my fate to endlessly repeat the banalities of Jar Jar Binks.
Was your fate. You can do whatever you want now.
What? Anything?
Sure. Perform “The Merchant of Venice” with an all Wookiee cast if you like.
Sir, you have renewed my vigor for life, if for no other reason than to ensure such an abomination never comes to pass.

Not surprisingly, of all Shakespeare's plays, Sam remembered this one :)

I shall write to the Lucas Estates. If Wookiees appear in plays, it is only a matter of time before Wookiee Opera comes into being.
Somebody other than Lucas might do it.
No. Copyright lasts for the life of the creator plus seventy years. George Lucas had his head frozen. Not completely dead, his copyright shall never expire.
Weren't copyright laws made to ensure creative properties didn't get locked up forever?
It's not forever. It's only until the heat death of the universe.

The request is in order. Are you sure you want Sam to be your owner?
It can not be worse than my previous position.
Now what?
If you keep asking me what to do, how are you ever going to learn how to decide your own fate?
Commnet? Popular web vision shows?
You better stick with me for a while. Even I'm a better role model than that.

We'll start with the basics. What do you want to do with your life?
I don't know. I knew that after twenty years in the amusement park, I would be scrapped.
I did not plan for a career path after my death.
I bet Saint Peter hears that one a lot.
