Episode Quotes
Host: Offered to you now, an item having to do with labor and management. An employment office, where is offered a collection of potential employees, whose skills are unique. For, in addition to their loyalty, industriousness, punctuality, and impeccable cleanliness, they also run at least a 100,000 miles without a lube and an oil change. It's no wonder we call this one You Can't Get Help Like That Anymore.

Dr. Kessler: These things have more human qualities than you two have ever dreamt of. What did you ever kick, punch, and abuse before we developed robots for you? Did you pull wings off of flies? Did you pour kerosene on cats?

Dr. Kessler: In the beginning, they only respond to what is programmed into them.
Malcolm Hample: And then?
Dr. Kessler: And then, like the human infant, they begin to mature. They begin to develop emotional reactions. And the next step, and you'd best prepare for this, Mr. Hample, they begin to develop survival instincts and methods. And when that happens... It could, Mr. Hample... You'd best get on the telephone to people like the Fultons and tell them to take out their aggressions on the wall or a punching bag, or something that won't hit back.
