robots, which are programmed specifically to help humans and not harm them in
any way. But one person does not think that robots are helpful.
Tapescript
Voice: Say goodbye to upgrade and service cаlls. An uplink to USR’s central
computer…provides this state-of-the art robot with new programs daily. The
Nestor class 5 is tomorrow’s robot today.
Welcome to U.S. Robotics. You have entered the garage-level lobby. Please use
the elevators for direct access to the main level concourse. Thank you.
-We gotta be smart about this. Let’s deal with it later.
Robertson: Detective.
Mr Spooner: Lawrence Robertson. Richest man in the world. I’ve seen you on
television.
Robertson: Can I offer you coffee?
Mr Spooner: Sure, why not. It’s free, right?
Robertson: I don’t think anyone saw this coming. You know, I should have, I
suppose, I knew him 20 years. Alfred practically invented robotics. He wrote the
Three Laws. But I guess brilliant people often have the most persuasive demons.
So whatever I can help you?
Mr Spooner: Sugar
Robertson: I’m sorry?
Mr Spooner: Sugar
Robertson: It’s on the table.
Robertson: - Don’t misunderstand my impatience.
Mr Spooner: - Oh, no. Go.Go.
Mr Spooner: A really big week for your folks around here. You gotta put a robot in
every home. Look, this is not what I do , but I got an idea for one of your
commercials. You could see a carpenter making a beautiful chair. Then one of your
robots comes and makes a better chair twice as fast. Then you superimpose on the
screen, “USR: little guy”. That would be the fade-out.
Robertson: Yeah, I see. I suppose your father lost his job to a robot. Maybe you’d
have banned the internet to keep the libraries open. Prejudice never shows much
reason. No, you know , I suspect you simply don’t like their kind.
Mr Spooner: Well, you got a business to run around here.
Robertson: Ill send someone to escort you.
Mr Spooner: Thank you very much.
