Manual reset initiated. Lights on.

Blunt, I'm sorry. I'll turn you back on when I find out what's happening with the neural pruning program. I promise.

I'm hairy and have fangs and now I'm leaving deactivated people in the basement. Depressing. I didn't start the day with the intention of becoming a monster.

Who says A.I.'s can't jump?

Hi, Florence. Want a word of advice? RUN!

Ethical problems would be so much easier to solve if self preservation didn't keep getting in the way.

Say, as long as you're here, want to serve as an obvious distraction?

Not really.

That's too bad. Since you've been seen talking to me, I figure half the crowd is going to take off after you when we split.

Hey! A good distraction isn't supposed to outrun her captain!

Да она быстрее гружёного эму бегает! (Robot Spike)

I found a place where we can hide.

Hide? I can't hide now. I've got momentum!

When it comes to having fun by being chased through the streets by a howling mob, you just don't get it.

I'm okay with that. there are schools of thought I don't want to get.

I need to talk to someone in Ecosystems Unlimited again. Of course, the last time I tried that, I lost a day of memories and almost got put into cold sleep.

I try to do things the right way. But it was Sam's tactics that worked at Ecosystems Unlimited, not mine.

So I suppose, under the circumstances, it might be all right to think like Sam maybe a little bit?

Search. Ecosystems Unlimited employees who list robotics as their field. Cross index with the phone directory.

Program a piece of smart paper to alert me and show on a map whenever I'm within fifty meters of one of these people. Print. Done.

It's only a little unethical to be tracking people to talk business after hours. But then, the first step on a slippery slope is always easy. It's stepping back that's the hard part.

Ms. Doggy!

Oh. Hello, Hazel.

FLORENCE! CATCH HER!

Hoop! Hold on there, young lady.

She slipped her tether.

I used to do the same thing when I was a pup her age.

And we landed about two hours ago. Now I'm here to meet Winston.

You've been busy. Now tell me about Winston. Anything special between you two?

Yes. Well, maybe. I'm trying to proceed cautiously.

Proceed cautiously? Listen, if you've found a Bowman's Wolf you like, go for it!

Winston is human.

Proceed VERY cautiously.

I remember now. You told me you've never met another Bowman's Wolf. Is there even another one in the star system?

No. The closest is about twenty light years away.

Well, that kind of limits your options.

Please. I'm going out with Winston because I like him, not because of lack of options.

Ever wonder if you were engineered to like humans?

If that's true, putting Dr. Bowman's brain design into robots is going to have some very interesting side effects.
